Chrishell Appearing at National Love Our Children Day Soapstock Weekend!

This website was originally created for her fans and to promote the actress Chrishell Stause during her time as Amamda Dillon on ABC's "All My Children." The site's domain expired sometime after 2010. When I saw that the domain was available I bought it with the goal of recreating as much of the original site as possible using archived content. This has been a nostalgia trip for me. I was always a big Amanda Dillon fan. Unfortunately I could retrieve any of the Fan Club Forums. Bummer. However, I just loved reminiscing about all her great appearances. How many were you able to attend?

My kids were so excited to see her in the Mountain State Apple Harvest Festival Grand Feature Parade. It was rather mild that weekend so we all wore our fav Batman t shirts, many representing his top 10 movies. It was a hoot. The four of us standing on the curb each wearing a different Batman t shirt waving and whistling as the parade went by. Several people took photos of us. My sons like the darker Batman imagery. One wore a Batman Sketchy Shadows shirt with its black and white sketch of Batman on his knees with skeleton shadows in the background. My other son had a Batman v Superman t shirt featuring Batman and Superman from the movie Dawn of Justice. My daughter prefer the more subtle Batman shirts with the Hush logo and the classic logo on them. I wore a Batman and Robin Team shirt featuring the dynamic duo straight from the pages of DC Comics in a slightly vintage design. After seeing Chrishell Stause we spent the rest of the afternnon wandering through the festival and sampling apple pies from the baking contest. The firework display was great on Friday night. Well enough about me. Here is Chrishell circa 2006-2009.

  I'm not even sure where to begin. It has been a crazy time for me lately. In my last entry I hinted about other projects which I'm very proud of. As you know now I co-hosted 'You Rock, Let's Roll' on FUSE and am currently in the webseries Luke 11:17. The other projects aren't finished yet, but I will always keep you updated. It was a slow time for me at AMC, so it was really nice to do some other things on my time off.

Now with Chuck Pratt at the AMC writing helm I am back to work as Amanda! You've probably already noticed Amanda showing up much more lately, and I am very excited to say there is some really great stuff coming up. I just got word about who Ms. Dillon is going to be interacting with and I can't wait. Many of you have been writing to me and saying that you've also been writing to TPTB saying that you want more Amanda. I just want to thank all of you for all of your amazing support throughout the crazy Pine Valley years!!

In the time since I've checked in with you last, my sister/best friend was in a terrible car accident in which she was lucky to not be paralyzed. Through much physical therapy she is going to make a full recovery much sooner than they imagined. She is the most courageous person I know and I learn from her strength every day. To have my family's health back, and to have such amazing support from my fans makes me feel overwhelmed at how incredible blessed I am. Not to mention, most of you know that I am also very lucky in the love department (sorry Jordan Knight!) Ha! I hope all is well with you guys and I look forward to seeing you on the message board.
 -xoxo Chrishell

Hey guys! I just wanted to check in because I know it has been awhile since my last entry. As you know it has been pretty slow for Amanda lately, but that hasn't been the case for myself. I have been keeping busy with a couple other projects (details to come) and am very happy personally and professionally. I also just did a photo shoot with Amanda Baker (Babe) and will have those pictures up soon. I am loving the beautiful weather and am so happy to have the days back where I can learn my lines in the park! I am very excited about the return of New Kids on the Block   and hopeful about the changes All My Children is going through. Now is a better time than ever to let TPTB know what you would like to see on the show. You guys have more power than ever right now
--All the best, Chrishell
