Kelley is 20-years younger than Don, but after the star experienced 4 failed marriages, she managed to win his heart. In an interview with Daily Mail, he talked about his marriage and said:

"People don't develop to the place where they can have long-lasting, mature relationships till they're in their 30s, and for some of us. It takes even longer than that." 


Don who is said to have successfully played the role of Sonny because at the time he was just as much of a womanizer as his character, he has completely turned his life around.

It has been revealed that the show's creator, Carlton Cruse and many of the original cast members will not be returning.
