I think that if you start teaching about giving back and helping other people young, that will be a given for your child their whole life.

Charity should always be a constant.

If somebody has never been married, they don’t know compromise.

The Internet has been a great outlet for storytelling. After all, there are web-based shows that have started online and have then gotten picked up. I think it’s a great opportunity for artists to get through the network roadblock. It just allows us another venue to be creative in.

‘All My Children’ taught me a great work ethic; you work so hard on a soap opera!

If your potential mate does not have the same perspective that you do then you’re going to be lost.

I grew up at ‘All My Children;’ I got married, had a daughter and made life-long friends there!

We have made some great strides in terms of treating various types of cancer with early detection. The success rate of recovery for many people today is better than it was a decade or two ago so we can’t give up. Yes, we would all love a quick “cure all” but that is not reality. Until then, we all are in this together and we have to keep working towards more progress!

I loved my time on All My Children. That show was a family to me. I am so sad that daytime is slowly fading away. I owe so much to daytime. I learned so much about my craft and I made so many wonderful friends there and I am so sad that it is all going away.

Emily Procter getting pregnant changed the show for me. I got so much more involved, which was so much fun! Now I feel like an action figure Barbie.

Deep down I’m a lazy person in a constantly moving body.

I am a firm believer in The Paleo Solution. I maintain a hectic schedule that starts early and finishes late. Filming a television series, maintaining my fitness, and being a mom can be harrowing some days. Since adopting a Paleo way of eating I look and feel better, and I know that I am setting a good example for my daughter.

When someone gradually leaves your life, that’s one thing because you get used to the end of it. When somebody disappears, it takes all of your control away. It leaves you frantic.

When Joe and I got married two years ago, we were both super strictly Paleo and we were shredded for the wedding! All of our wedding pictures consequently turned out fantastic. I wish I could say I was as thin now as I was then!

It’s tough. We don’t have a character-driven show so I think the fans get really frustrated because they don’t get to see any consistency in terms of what’s happening romantically. We kind of just have to take it with a grain of salt. It shows up where it shows up.

Yeah, I feel sort of unfinished in New York, even though I spent so many years there. I think it’s because I never got a chance to do any Broadway, or even off-Broadway. I would love to do that and I haven’t given up on that.

I did not know there was any controversy. I don’t get a lot of time to read the fan forums, etc. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to have more storylines. I was just so happy to step in and pick up some of the slack for Emily while she was pregnant. It was so important for Emily to concentrate on her health and the well-being of her baby. In the end … she is a great mother and her baby is adorable. I did not realize there was any controversy. LOL!

I have a rule of thumb now and that’s that somebody [she dates] has to have been married and they have to have had kids. Everything boils down to perspective. If your potential mate does not have the same perspective that you do then you’re going to be lost…. If somebody has never been married, they don’t know compromise … [and] if they don’t have children, they don’t know the absolute self-sacrifice it takes and what it means to be a parent.

I think I want to stick to jewelry. Perfumes are for the bigger media stars, and I think that works well for them. I don’t think you have to be a big star to have a jewelry line; if something’s pretty, I think people will want to buy it.

I love New York City for its energy. Pebble Beach, Carmel Beach and that all area, for its completely laid back energy. Paris for the charm, shopping and the glamour

I don’t watch a lot of TV. I am madly in love, I’m a big sap, I’m madly in love with Extreme Makeover Home Edition. I cry every week.

I know first-hand the challenges that come with being an on-the-go mom, and I am constantly looking for great products that fit into my busy schedule. I’ve tried every goop and elixir known to man.

Any mom who tells you that she does it effortlessly is not telling the truth.

“Showing the world you’re having fun is what makes you stand out.”

“I never considered myself that big of a loss when I left. And then suddenly I got more publicity after I was gone than when I was on the show. It’s really surprising.”

“Sarah Michelle Gellar (ex-Kendall) is like my little sister,” says LaRue Callahan. She calls John G.P., short for Grandpa. He hates it.”

“It’s funny, because without AMC, never in a trillion years would have had the opportunities that I’ve had. It was just an amazing experience. Yet, I feel really like before I have kids and settle down into one spot or another, I just really want to play some other stuff.”

“I loved AMC, and I loved the people there and the family there, and I miss them desperately. But I really feel like I owe it to myself to go out and do some other stuff. And even though the sitcom was missing the part, it was something that I needed to do. I just needed to get away from all of the crying and all the time on the soap. On one hand, AMC was great because they wrote really well for me. But on the other hand, it was emotionally exhausting.”

“I know it doesn’t make sense to a lot of people, they’re like, ‘Why doesn’t she just go back to where she was doing well.’ But, whether it makes sense to other people or not, it makes sense to me, and it makes sense to John. I really need to just take two years and do other stuff.”

“We see Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos all the time!”

“AMC has been so good to me. If I was going to do another soap, I’m going to go back to the place that I really love.”

“Triangles are the best! When John and I were working with Julia Barr, that was just the most fun.”

“I really learned a lot about what’s important. I have an amazing marriage, and I never had that kind of relationship in my life before. Nothing else in the world means as much to me as that. Anything that would jeopardize that is not important.”

“I started to find, toward the end, that I was getting emotionally tired from the storyline, and we were working so much that I didn’t have any life. I just worked and went home, worked and went home. And I felt myself starting to get lazy. I needed to infuse my life with some different characters and different situations. And the situations would have been good and bad-bad because it’s just been so frustrating and anxiety-producing, but good because I’ve learned a lot from that. It certainly makes you appreciate what you had, not that I didn’t appreciate it while I had it, because I did.”

“Leaving AMC was one of the hardest things that I ever did. You can ask John. I cried for months before I left AMC. It was so heartbreaking to me to leave there because I really, really loved it. But, I knew for myself, I needed to jumpstart myself creatively again, which is why I never ruled out going back. So it’s not really a matter of hitting it big, or thinking that I might do features. It’s just a matter of myself as an actress and feeding that part of me.”

“John and I sort of had this plan that we wanted to start having kids in about two years. So we thought that this would be the perfect time for me to go because if we had kids, there would be no way I would be able to do this cross-country trek. It would be way too crazy for us.”

“It’s really tough for us because we’re so used to spending all of our time together. We worked together, we had all of our scenes together, and we lived together.”

“He wasn’t ready to leave. And it seemed smarter that he should stay. That sort of freed me up to be able to wander for a couple of years with one of having a base.”

“Every leading lady in Hollywood should be worried. Eva will be a major film star because she will achieve anything she wants.”

“I wanted to display these things because they’re all so beautiful. (Gifts Eva received for her daughter at the baby shower) The antique silver frame holding a photo of Kaya in her bath towel is a gift from Sarah Michelle Gellar. Susan Lucci gave Kaya the silver engraved baby cup and the Steiff teddy bear holding it.”

“Kelly Ripa threw me a baby shower at the Russian Tea Room and I thought that was her present to me, but at Christmastime, she sent me this bassinet filled with bathing suits, sundresses, and sweater sets,” Eva says. “It’s covered in ruffled layers of fabric to back the armoire doors.”

“When it became frighteningly real was when they found had found an anthrax scare at AMC. I was getting ready to visit the set that day, to say hi to everybody. But John called to say, ‘Don’t come. They found powder in the bathroom.’ (This was later learned to be a false alarm) “But you can’t live your life in fear. If you do, they win. So we decided to look forward to the ‘life’ of it all, instead of the death and despair.”

“Kelly (Ripa) has had two C-sections now. She said she’s ‘used to them’ and thinks they’re ‘great’. Kelly thinks they’re great because you get drugs and all that. I think for the first child, you want to try to do it yourself. But Kelly said by the second one, you’re like, ‘Ah, bring on the drugs!’”

“John and I took a hypnotherapy class. We watched a program about it on The Learning Channel, and these women who had done hypnotherapy were in the worst throes of labor, but they were laying there calm and quiet, like they were in a trance. I thought ‘Hey, anything to make the pain tolerable would be great.’”

“She threw my shower in New York City, at the Russian Tea Room, for 40 women! She went above and beyond to call of friendship with this thing. I was like, ‘Holy smokes!’ Susan (Lucci) drove down almost two hours, from Foxwoods (Casino, in Connecticut), where she was opening for Regis Philbin. That was really great of her. Poor Kelly worked on this thing for a month, but was sick as a dog that weekend. Luckily, I had my camcorder with me!”

“I didn’t not want to have a baby. I knew I wanted to eventually have one, but I didn’t know when would be the right time. I guess there really is no perfect time to have one, so I was trying to mentally prepare myself for it. Now that I have her, I can’t believe I didn’t have her sooner.”

“I really thought I was going to be having a boy because everybody said ‘If you have a girl, you’re going to be really sick. If you have a girl, you’re going to carry it a certain way.’ And I didn’t carry in a certain way. I carried like a boy. I was leaning a tiny bit toward girl and John was leaning a tiny bit toward a boy. But I was all ready for it if I had a boy because everybody kept telling me I was going to have a boy.

“I actually had a good time. We were laughing—well, I had some incredible drugs. They gave me an epidural the moment I walked in the door. From that point on, John was videotaping and we were laughing. I made him tape from the side. I was like ‘I don’t want pictures of a big…hoohaw! I want other people to be able to watch this without going, ‘Oh my God.’”

“If I hadn’t been there and pushed her out myself, I would really have serious questions about her being mine. There are times I look at her and think, ‘You don’t look like mine, but I love you to pieces, and I’ll take care of you forever.’ I love her more than anything in the world and would do anything to protect her.’”

“When I left the show, I was really tired. It’s a catch-22, because as an actor, you want the big, fabulous, emotional storyline. But then when you get it, you’re exhausted because three days a week, you have to come in and cry. I couldn’t have a baby…I slept with my brother in law, then didn’t know whose child I was carrying, I had the baby, then saw it get stolen. My God! I was emotionally burnt out by the time I left. I needed a break.”

“You know, we all go into the business thinking, ‘I’ll be it! I’ll be Julia Roberts! But there is only one Julia Roberts. So you try, but you don’t get where you want to get.”

“It is amazing to be so madly in love with somebody that you totally don’t know, starting the second they come out. It’s the only relationship in your life that you do backwards; instead of liking somebody then falling in love with them, you love this person intensely from the moment you see them. Her personality shoes up in little bits every day. You’re like ‘Oh, I like that about you! That is gong to be neat about you!”

“It has definitely brought John and I closer. Not only does he adore her, but we call her ‘John Jr.’ because if you break down her little features, they look like mine, but when you look at her whole face, it’s all John.”

“Sarah is still a huge fan of the show. She never misses an episode. And she is always brainstorming storylines. So she said, ‘What if someone found Maria and Pygmalioned her? What if you were now married and had kids with somebody who reprogrammed you to be the person he wanted you to be?’ ‘That’s fabulous! It’d be fun if I was completely different from the Maria everybody knows.’” (Eva and best friend Sarah Michelle Gellar think of Maria storylines, Soaps in Depth, May 2002)

“I’d be Carly from GH. Carly is really feisty and ballsy, and yet she’s got this vulnerable side. This has everything to do with the actress who plays her…I steal from Tamara Braun often. I watch her scenes, which are so nicely done, and say, `I must make a note to myself to apply this to my performances.'”

“I remember both,” La Rue recalls of her fictional nuptials. “For the vow-renewal, Maria wore a beautiful pearlescent, baby greenish dress. It was an evening gown. When they got married the first time, Richard Schurkamp (AMC’s costume designer) made this strapless gown and a beautiful winter coat, because they got married in the winter, in the snow, on Long Island. We got married on the show before we got married in real life, so it was a nice dress rehearsal. We ended up getting married about a year later.”

“We got married in Hawaii on the island of Lanai and brought 20 of our closest friends and family. That was amazing,” beams La Rue. “We got married on this tiny little island that was surrounded by water. It was gorgeous – not to be believed and totally magical.”

“I always come back to it when I’m trying to lose or maintain weight.”
“For this swimsuit cover, you better bet that I’ve gone right back to Paleo.”
“I never had a trouble spot with my stomach but now that I’m older, I do.”
“I find when I take the time to sit and do my own quiet medi-ation for 10 minutes, I feel rejuvenated and have coherent thoughts instead of a zillion rampant thoughts.”
“Trader Joe’s makes my favorite gluten-free bread.”
“Gluten-free bread is tough for sandwiches but this one has the best texture. It’s so good. We toast it in the morning and have it with eggs.”
“I always have Miracle Rice around—it’s the best diet food ever.”
“It looks like rice and fills me up like rice, but without all the calories. It’s made from plant fiber, so it’s gluten-free and soy-free. It absorbs the flavor from any sauce or dish. I usually put it in tomato sauce or soup. I just made it with tuna steak and drizzled marinade from the fish into the Miracle Rice. It’s delicious.”
“On the go, I keep Epic bars in my purse—I love them!” she shares of the Paleo-friendly protein bars ($3 each, health-food stores). “They’re not stigary; they’re actual meat bars. They have one that’s 100 percent grass-fed beef with peppers and cherries. It sounds weird but it’s really good!”
“I started taking resveratrol, and it’s fantastic.”
“I take it for high cholesterol and immune function. And I find when I take it regularly, it helps my eyesight?”
