Passions

NBC’s daytime series “Passions” reunites. The cast all came together for a Passions Fan Festival coordinated by Tray Burch and sponsored by Dave and Buster’s. You may remember the show blazing onto the scene back in July of 1999, ending in 2008. The show was very much ahead of it’s time as far as the written storylines, the technology that was used on the show and the editing. All is what the new shows today are simply being caught up on.
Passions
The Passions Fan Festival, took place at the Hollywood & Highland center. The event allowed fans to meet and greet with the cast. It was great watching everyone come together, some for the very first time since the show ended. The event started with the fans on one side of the room and stars on the other side of the room, but facing each other in mirror form. It was the coolest thing ever as fans got to watch the stars reaction as the stars got to watch fans reaction to the on screen Passions presentation. After the presentation, there was a Q&A followed by fan giveaway.

We got a chance to catch up with the stars of Passions. Taylor Anne Ramsey who played Kay Bennett told us “It feels so great seeing everyone, it feels like it’s a high school reunion. Ramsey was the original Kay Bennett and took to social media to reveal why she left the show.

•Breathe in, Breathe Out• I went full circle with Passions at the Passions Fan Festival this weekend. I was cast on the show after my very first audition, at 17 years old. It was an incredible professional experience, but the pressure and long hours were a strain on top of heavy burdens I didn't even know I was carrying:  undiagnosed depression, the disease of addiction, and a very real lack of self worth or love. I didn't know how to ask for help, was scared to admit I was struggling, and I left the show after a year to embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing. I always wished it hadn't been under such difficult circumstances, and that I'd had the chance to say to the people I worked with, "Thank you, I'm grateful for our time together." I truly valued my experience with a wonderful cast of talented, warm-hearted actors, producers and crew members. Last month on June 23, I celebrated 7 years of sobriety. One month later, I got to have that positive closure I always hoped for. It effortlessly appeared, out of the clear blue sky. It was perfect to reconnect with those friends, to hear their hilarious and fond memories, and to celebrate the show with super fans who showed up from all over the country (and Canada, too!). I got to honor that time in my young life with the clarity and gratitude that comes from evolving through age and experience. Now to be acting again, working from a place of joy and groundedness, it feels like one last piece of my past has clicked into place. When a door from the past opens, we can walk through leaving the old "story" behind. We can stand in the present with compassion for our younger selves. Sitting on the plane heading home to my beautiful daughter and amazing husband, I felt deeply grateful for my life– where I can go anywhere and do anything with an open heart. I'm here for it. Thank you, God. I hope that by being continually transparent about my journey, I can help other young people. In my opinion there still aren't enough sober women who are visible, and we all need someone to identify with who can say, "You are not alone. There's an amazing life waiting for you on the other side." #recovery #journey 🦋
