Rebecca Budig

She was a huge fan fave as All My Children hell-raiser Greenlee Smythe.

TV Guide Magazine spoke with Budig about life away from AMC plus lots more, including that diss from Prospect Park, her various husbands and the Emmy-winning soap star who keeps stealing from her!

TV Guide Magazine: Look at you being Martha Stewart! How'd this happen?

I love improving people's lives. [Laughs] Especially my own! ... read more

But mostly Days did what it does best — bring us deeply involving relationship drama with characters we've loved and cherished for decades. Its Emmy Award for Outstanding Daytime Drama in June — the show's first in 35 years — was well-deserved.
