    I want to know Donna Mills’ aging secret. She hasn’t aged barely a day since she left KL. What is her secret? And she doesn’t look all botched up like a lot of the other women do. Hunter Tylo is a train wreck! Joan is amazing as well!

      It’s real good make up along with Photoshop pictures. I saw Donna last year on General Hospital in HD. She didn’t look bad but her skin wasn’t that of 40 something year woman. You can tell Donna is a mature woman.
