Oh wow, I had no idea she had a 13-year-old daughter!! She was my hero in the 80’s so it’s odd to see her all grown up, I always picture her as a teenager LOL…she’s gorgeous and so is her daughter.

Her daughter reminds me of someone famous but I can’t quite put my finger on it…Rachel Leigh Cook maybe???

Danielle on

She kind of reminds me of Holly Hunter.

I remember when her mom and dad were preparing her nursery, and even though trends have changed her’s stood the test of time it was so classy and very calming. I took some of her ideas (and Shawn Colvin’s) when designing my nursery although MLR’s was unisex I loved the colors she used and Shawn’s was done in purses and hats, mine is done in Dresses.

Mary lou and shannon Kelley have done an awesome job raising their girls!

Mary Lou’s kids are adorable, they go to the same school as mine, her daughter Skyla is in my daughters grade. All 3 of her kids are cute, and can be seen on the GNC commercial played on cable channels.

Beautiful girl


I remember an ABC special on Celebrity pregnancy. Mary Lou & her husband were expecting their first child. Cant believe Shayla Rae is now 13 yrs old. Shayla kind of looks like Dominique Moceanu

Wow, she looks so grown up! I saw Mary Lou and her three younger daughters at a local eatery a year or so ago and I didn’t realize her oldest was this much older. Beautiful family.
