7When she was hired to play Adriana on "One Life to Live" the original intention of the storyline was for Dorian Lord to pretend that Adriana was her daughter to gain her inheritance. When producers saw the striking resemblance between Melissa Gallo and Robin Strasser they decided to make the family ties permanent and the shocking twist of the storyline was the Adriana really was Dorian's daughter. This created some storyline problems because the character had been paired romantically with Dorian's grandson River Carpenter.

#Quote
1It's going to sound like brown-nosing, but I love 'Parks & Rec.'
2You know when you meet somebody and they're just good people? That's Andy Samberg.
3I lie to myself every day when I tell myself, 'I can skip yoga.'
4I am so behind on all TV, and I love TV, but I literally, I get home so late, and when I get some time, I'm trying to catch up on my DVR.
5I don't follow football, but I always watch the Superbowl.
6I'm realizing I'm not hip enough to know for sure what would be considered pop-culture.
7Mindy Kaling is so smart and hilarious.
8I think comedy is so specific, so hard. I'd audition for comedies and think, 'I can't pull this off.'
