Our records show that Ms. Adams played a woman named Roseanne for a period of a few months, but they do not indicate what sort of role it was. Does anyone out there remember Roseanne?

When Ellen and David Stewart divorced on ATWT in the early 1980's, Ellen moved into an apartment and became friendly with her divorcee neighbor, Suz, played by Betsy Palmer. In a couple of episodes, at most, Edie Adams played Rosanne, a friend of Suz's. This was merely a guest appearance, not even a recurring role.
