It’s never too late to fall in love all over again.

In this week’s column Soaps.com has an engagement, a star-studded cast in a new short film, a Hallmark holiday movie, primetime guest-starring and recurring roles and a message to an actor who’s fighting a battle with cancer.

Jennifer Bassey engaged to George Bamford.
Jennifer Bassey (“All My Children’s” Marian Colby Chandler, 1983 to 2011) recently got engaged to George Bamford at sunset at Duke’s restaurant in Waikiki, Hawaii. After the loss of her first husband in 2008, Bassey surrounded herself with those closest to her during her grief and was later introduced to Bamford, who had also lost his spouse of fifty years. Knowing what he was going through, Bassey offered support and through it all, the two fell in love. “Two and a half years later, here we are,” Bassey told People. “I never dreamed when I met George it would turn into this — that we would [develop] feelings for one another. I thought I had 30 great years with someone else, and maybe I won’t meet anybody again, and that’s okay. But it just happened” The couple enjoys traveling and plans to have an imitate wedding. Soaps.com sends Bassey and Bamford our very best!
