I certainly did not like the "old" Kelly. She was such a downer to watch, crying, trying to get sympathy all the time. New Kelly is such a better character, much more down to earth and friendly. She is a much better match to Jack and she certainly looks younger. The original Kelly was shown as a little nuts, not sure if they are going to drop the crazy in this character, or it comes out more when she gets Jack hooked on her. She will also be a good Phyllis replacement - same kind of character. I think this is a good new storyline since MS went on to greener pastures.
