Alexisjoyvipaccess: You star in the ION movie, A Christmas Cruise. Can you tell us a little bit more about your character in the movie and what the atmosphere was like working on set of the film? 

Jessica Morris: I play Becky, the best friend to Pam (Vivica Fox). Becky is a newly divorced woman who is out to have a good time and pushes Pam to do the same. She genuinely wants her friend to find love and be happy. The atmosphere on set was so lighthearted and fun. We got to sing and laugh and just have a really good time.


Alexisjoyvipaccess: What are some of your holiday traditions? 

Jessica Morris: I don’t really have a ton of traditions anymore. Growing up, I hung out with all of my family. My grandmother, Mama Joy, would play songs on her piano, and my cousins and I would sing (completely off key), but Mama Joy never complained about it, and I would make Christmas cookies with my mom. I still try to do this one because they are delicious.


Alexisjoyvipaccess: You have another upcoming movie on Lifetime titled, The Wrong Man, premiering on December 29th. If you could describe what it was like working on the movie using just one word, what word would that be? 

Jessica Morris: Intense.


Alexisjoyvipaccess: We also loved watching you in One Life to Live. Do you have a favorite episode from working on the show? 

Jessica Morris: I always loved the switching places episode where everyone played a different character.


Alexisjoyvipaccess: You also star in the mini-series, Ladies of the Lake, which got picked up for a season two. What would you like to see happen in future episodes of the show? 

Jessica Morris: I hope that my character, Crystal finds true strength and happiness, that she doesn’t feel that she has to rely on men for their money or protection. I want her to find her own passion and make her own success.


Alexisjoyvipaccess: What is your favorite character that you have portrayed thus far? 

Jessica Morris: My favorite character that I have played is Lori in a film called The 6th Degree. It hasn’t been distributed yet. I can’t wait for everyone to see it. I play a very surprising and complex character.


Alexisjoyvipaccess: Lastly, if you could bring out one message to all of your fans, what message would that be? 

Jessica Morris: Thanks for watching and supporting all of my projects. There are days as an actor that can be very challenging and discouraging and sometimes when I get a kind word on social media from a fan, it gives me that boost of encouragement to keep going. It means more than you know.

From acting to philanthropy, writing, and even investing in a restaurant – it’s clear to see that the stupendous Carolyn Hennesy has made an everlasting impact in the worlds of entertainment, business, and beyond. No amount of words are truly enough to describe just how extraordinary Carolyn Hennesy is. She is someone that is respected and admired by every single generation and she is someone who has touched the lives of many with her incredible work. Saying that Carolyn Hennesy is “prolific” is truly an understatement, but it’s obvious that everything Carolyn Hennesy touches and works on turns to gold.

We all know the spectacular Carolyn Hennesy for showcasing her indescribable and unrivaled talent in many fan-favorite projects including General Hospital as well as True BloodJessieCougar TownThat 70’s Show, and the list goes on and on. Any project that Carolyn Hennesy works on is truly an unforgettable one because of her presence and her awe-inspiring, acting skills. Carolyn Hennesy is definitely one of the most gifted actresses on this planet. Carolyn Hennesy’s brilliant talent has and continues to get recognized in various ways. In fact, she just recently won her first ever Emmy – a well-deserved award for someone as exceptional as Carolyn. She won her Emmy in the category, “Outstanding Supporting or Guest Actress in a Digital Daytime Drama Series” for her role in The Bay.

Besides leaving everyone mesmerized with her on-screen projects, Carolyn Hennesy is also continuing a great presence on social media platforms as well. She has been keeping busy with her outstanding app – it’s definitely a go-to for all of her fans as it allows everyone to learn more about the consummate actress and keep updated on all of the endless, exciting things she is working on. When she isn’t on set of one of her exceptional projects or working on digital ventures, Carolyn Hennesy is continuing her creativity by writing. She is a New York Times best-selling author for her book, The Secret Life of Damian Spinelli and she also writes all of the Pandora children’s books series. Carolyn Hennesy’s schedule is always jam-packed but she takes on everything with such grace and elegance and we are always left speechless with just how spectacular all of her projects are.

To add onto her impressive resume, Carolyn Hennesy also invests in the LA hotspot restaurant, The Flats, as well as the bistro, La Folie. Despite how busy she may be, Carolyn Hennesy always prioritizes on giving back. She is a celebrity ambassador for great causes including the American Humane Association as well as the Breaking The Chains foundation. Carolyn Hennesy can do it all and do it so exceptionally. She is a true inspiration to everyone.

Now, Carolyn Hennesy is also focusing on promoting a life-changing procedure called the Nutrient Body Sculpt. Carolyn Hennesy has raved about the wonderful results of the procedure and she wants to share the amazing experience with everyone.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had the honor of interviewing the remarkable Carolyn Hennesy. Carolyn Hennesy talked exclusively with Alexisjoyvipaccess about how the Nutrient Body Sculpt has helped improve her lifestyle, what her reaction was like when she won her first Emmy award, what it has been like for her working on the Gilmore Girls revival series on Netflix and so much more only in our VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview. Check out my interview with Carolyn Hennesy below! Thanks for the stellar interview, Carolyn!

Alexisjoyvipaccess: You are one of the most prolific individuals on this planet. We love watching you on General Hospital. Can you tell us what it has been like for you working on this masterpiece of a show for so many years and what it’s like seeing your character evolve over all of the seasons?

Carolyn Hennesy: Diane Miller is pure fun. True, she finds herself in a wide variety of interesting situations with some of the most formidable characters on the General Hospital canvas, but that’s part of the joy of playing her. I often don’t know where Diane is going to end up at any particular moment.  I credit Bob Guza with really seeing the potential in Diane and taking her from “the lawyer” to a fully-fleshed out larger-than-life (sometimes) personality.  He started the evolution of Diane and almost all of the head writers over the ensuing years have taken her and run. The most exciting moments, though, are those when Diane gets to drop the veil and let her vulnerable side come through. That’s very tasty.


Alexisjoyvipaccess: You’re also in the Gilmore Girls revival series titled, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. What was it like for you working on this fan-favorite show and bringing it back to life?


Carolyn Hennesy: As I have said elsewhere, I was quite probably the only person on the planet who had not followed the series when it originally aired, so I wasn’t truly aware of the iconic status it had attained. Now, of course, I’m in love with all the residents of Stars Hollow. I was beyond fortunate to work with theeeee Kelly Bishop and that alone was worth it. She’s just one of the greatest dames, in the best sense of the word, I’ve encountered in this profession…a walking master class.


Alexisjoyvipaccess: You also were just recently awarded with an Emmy for your work on The Bay. Congratulations on the well-deserved award. What was your reaction like when you were honored with the prestigious award?


Carolyn Hennesy: Time ground down to a paint-drying pace and I found myself sounding out the syllables of my name, slowly, as they were being said and thinking, “‘Car’…hey, that sounds like the first syllable of MY name and ‘o’…well, that’s the second syllable of MY name”…and on from there. It took me a long moment to realize that they called me.


Alexisjoyvipaccess: You’ve also been sharing your experiences with a procedure known as the Nutrient Body Sculpt. Can you tell us a little bit more about that?


Carolyn Hennesy: I have been exposed to a number of “latest and greatest” things in my life…and many products have asked that I speak for them. I’ve learned the hard way that not all is always as it seems. A friend, knowing my stress level can peak into the red at times, recommended Nutrient Body Sculpt to me when I learned I would be hosting for NATAS on Facebook Live. They had great results and felt I would as well. I’m actually rather grateful to them that they insisted.  Nutrient Body Sculpt doesn’t claim to be a weight loss product but I did lose a bit of weight; the real benefit to me is a boost in energy and my body responded in an interesting way. My body felt less inflamed…which I can tell simply by the way I can now move in trapeze class. My body feels more fluid and there’s almost no pain in my joints. My muscles seem to heal from soreness much faster.  I’ve also found everyday energy has increased.


Alexisjoyvipaccess: You’ve said that the Nutrient Body Sculpt has helped improve your life – why would you recommend this procedure to other individuals and fans?


Carolyn Hennesy: I don’t know a single individual who isn’t dealing with stress…in my opinion, it’s the number one killer because so much stems from it.  The Nutrient Body Sculpt procedure, discovered and refined by Meggie Jones, a former hospice caregiver, and Dr. Prasad, a leading expert in antioxidant research, focuses on wrapping the body with special “bandages” soaked in a micronutrients and a mineral-rich solution. Most wraps are sweat loss but not Nutrient Body Sculpt; on the contrary; it hydrates the body with micro-nutrients. The first time I tried it, I was physically euphoric and the benefits continued even after the session. They train existing spas and clinics across the country who want to carry their line.


Alexisjoyvipaccess: You also recently came out with your very own app, can you tell us a little bit more about it and the inspiration behind creating the app?


Carolyn Hennesy: I won an app…can you believe it!?  Won it at a bingo game. The app designer/creator, David Afana (Afana Enterprises,) was so patient while I tried to decide what to base this app upon. Some ideas were way too complicated, so we simply decided to create something where my fans and I could keep in closer touch. There are fabulous features such a “brutal advice” from me, a “find my car” button and a link to my online store. I feature products that make my life easier and the aim is to make everyone’s life a little simpler, less expensive and better. And you can find it straight through the app…look for imjustsayin’ in the app store!


Alexisjoyvipaccess: In addition to being a remarkable actress, you’re also a profound writer and author. Can you tell us what inspired you to focus your life around writing in addition to acting? Do you think writing helps influence your acting and vice versa?


Carolyn Hennesy: I was challenged to write a novel in six weeks and accepted. During the course of this experience I realized that I had something more profound and important to say…something beside telling the tale of a trio of young girls on a deadly quest. I wanted to express my thoughts about the making of an individual’s character. The forming of a moral compass and the idea that taking personal responsibility for one’s actions can sometimes lead you on the adventure of a lifetime. Certainly, my writing influences my acting and vice-versa. It’s all drawn from the same well of experience and knowledge…the more you fill the well, the more you can draw from it for anything you attempt.


Alexisjoyvipaccess: You also are a celebrity ambassador for the inspiring foundation, Breaking The Chains. Can you tell us a little bit more about your work with the extraordinary foundation?


Carolyn Hennesy: Debra Hopkins, the founder of Breaking The Chains, is such an extraordinary woman; she’s taken on the Herculean task of trying to take the stigma out of eating disorders. You would think this would be terribly easy, right? I mean, after all, there’s not a person I know who doesn’t have some issue, large or small, with food. Since, unlike alcohol or drugs, food is something none of us can live without, it stands to reason that something all of us must regard in our lives would have less judgement surrounding the inevitable abuses. Wrong. For some reason, food issues are judged far more harshly and have therefore stayed hidden in deeper places for much longer. This organization is bringing all of these infinitely varied manifestations of this illness into bright light charging that we must all begin to understand because we all suffer.


Alexisjoyvipaccess: Lastly, if you could bring out one message to all of your fans, what message would that be?


Carolyn Hennesy: Your job in life is to be happy. Be happy and you make everybody else’s life easier…including your own.
