Attributes her professional career breakthrough to "fairy godmother" Kathie Lee Gifford who, as a teenager, was hopelessly in love with a 19-year-old professional surfer (Abigail's father-to-be) Yancy Spencer. When Abigail turned 17, her dad called Kathie Lee asking if Abby and her mother Lydia could attend a broadcast of "Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee," a request that was immediately granted. After the broadcast, Abby and Lydia were invited backstage to meet Kathie Lee and when Lee learned that Abby wanted to be an actress, she made a call to ABC TV casting and a meeting was arranged for the young Abby who, soon after, landed the role of Rebecca on All My Children (1970) in June 1999. While still trying to get on her feet, Abby spent three months as a live-in 'nanny' for Kathie Lee at her New York residence.
Parents: (father) Yancy Bailey Spencer (III) (2 July 1950 - 14 Feb 2011) was a professional surfer and (mother) Lydia Ann (Brown).
Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!
My father loved biographies. He loved the true tales of interesting people that were shaping our culture. I get why he dug 'Vanity Fair.' You feel smarter, somehow, for reading it.
I love nothing more than a good, rich, dark chocolate. It exhilarates. It satisfies.
Unless you paddle for the wave, you'll never know if you could catch it. But once you do... Ride it as long as you can. Love as long as you can.
I definitely gravitate towards things like vegetables, chicken, brown rice, but I don't deprive myself of anything. If I want a Sprinkles cupcake, I'm having a Sprinkles cupcake. But I'm not going to have one every day... you just have to have a sensible outlook on all of it.
Gratefulness is a double-edged sword. Because I think we've poured it into a feeling. And the batter of gratitude gets kind of stuck to the edges of the Williams Sonoma melamine mixing bowl. But gratefulness, the act of being grateful is actually... a verb. It's an activity.
It's all about how can you take care of yourself when furthering your life's goals and ambitions, and purpose and whatever you choose - family, career - to maintain a really balanced, whole, healthy outlook.
