All My Children Star Rebecca Budig Dishes On How To Plant A Perfect Kiss

In her 10 year run playing character Greenlee Smythe on All My Children, Rebecca Budig has had quite a few on-screen beaus (including Josh Duhamel, with whom she was co-nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for America’s Favorite Couple in 2002) — so who better to turn to for kissing advice with the big New Year’s Eve midnight smooch approaching? Budig, who is married to former Bachelor Bob Guiney, was kind enough to give us the rundown on how she preps for puckering up. “For kissing, I like lipgloss. But not the sticky kind. The smell good, smooth kind!” she says, and cites Sephora and Kiehl’s as two of her favorites. In addition, Budig tipped us off to Ayur-medic Lip Enhancer, a vitamin-C infused gloss that “tastes good, and gives your lips a little color,” she says. To make the tint last, the Cincinnati native suggests using lip liner to fill in lips before applying gloss: “That way, once the gloss is gone, there is still color! And the liner tends to really stay which is why I use it all over.” The star also shares her obsession with Colgate Wisp, a miniature breath-freshening toothbrush. “I use that after meals, on the plane, before love scenes…it’s just very convenient and makes my mouth feel very clean!” And when asked her thoughts on the best on-screen kiss—hers or otherwise—the actress chooses wit over fairytale romance: “In The Jerk, when Steve Martin licks Bernadette Peter’s face. It always makes me laugh!” -Emily Hsieh

The kissing advice I want to know is how do I get to kiss her! Maybe you can try out your suggestions on me, Rebecca! LOL. Welcome back to All My Children! You’re a great actress and way too sexy. Bob is a lucky guy.

Yay! Greenlee is bringing sexy back to All My Children. You’re beautiful, girl! Now since Aiden has left, and Josh sadly won’t come back, how about showing off those kissing skills with Ricky Paull Goldin next? Jake and Greenlee would make an awesome couple!

Is that how she got her job back??
By firmly planting one of those perfect kisses on Brian Frons’ a.s???

Rebecca Budig’s Tips On The Perfect Kiss : Soaps on ABC - Soaps on ABC: All the best of daytime soaps. General Hospital, All My Children, One Life to Live on

[...] Just in time for New Year’s Eve celebrations all around which means kissing your loved one when the clock strikes midnight, Rebecca has shared to People.com some tips on how she likes her lips to be when kissing her husband Bob Guiney. “For kissing, I like lipgloss. But not the sticky kind. The smell good, smooth kind!” she says, and cites Sephora and Kiehl’s as two of her favorites. In addition, Budig tipped us off to Ayur-medic Lip Enhancer, a vitamin-C infused gloss that “tastes good, and gives your lips a little color,” she says.

Malibu Becky knows all about kissing!!!!

From what I hear, she has learned it all from her wonderful grandfather!!!

Thanks for sharing this valuable information with us! Just in time for the holidays too!!!

Now excuse me while I drop everything and run…not walk… to purchase each and every one of these “kissing” supplies that she has generously endorsed?

I would like to know the best lip gloss for preventing her lips from sticking to a frozen stripper pole when she kisses it.

But seriously, reading Becky’s poignant kissing tips took away 3 minutes of my life that I will never get back. Thanks for sharing this valuable insight.

I’m waiting for her tips on what lip gloss to use while demonstrating fellatio on a beer bottle. It’s hard to tell from the photos. She’s a classy one, that Becky.

How appropriate this article is! Almost makes me wonder how many of these product’s companies are under ‘ole grandaddy’s influence as well! I heard a rumor that her granddaddy once again used his influence with ABC to buy his baby her role back! Now I suppose it is time for all the front PR work or “kissing up” in an attempt to maximize viewer interest. Can anyone recall “Pia Zadora” of the 1980′s? Absolutely no talent but a family with a lot of influence and a desire to be famous!
hmmm, wasn’t Pia short too? Sorry, but if I want advice for lip products, I will consult my professionals at my spa!
