She played the role of romance novelist Felicia Gallant on Another World from 1982 to 1999, and faux-psychiatrist Rae Cummings on One Life to Live from 1978 to 1980 and from 1999 to 2004. She also reprised her role as Rae on the other ABC soaps: All My Children, General Hospital, and Port Charles. In a shocking reveal, it was made known that Myrtle Fargate from All My Children (played by Eileen Herlie) was her character's mother, and her character was mother to General Hospital 's Skye Chandler-Quartermaine (ironic, since the actress, Robin Christopher, played Dano's daughter on Another World).
She also hosted the Lifetime talk show Attitudes, which was spoofed on Saturday Night Live.
In 1993, she won a Daytime Emmy for her portrayal of Felicia Gallant on Another World. Currently, she writes a very popular style column for Soap Opera Digest.
