Bates Matriarch Turns 50

Wishing Kelly Jo Bates a blessed 50th birthday! Did you know that Kelly's favorite subjects in college were biology, chemistry, and calculus? She majored in human services and minored in special education.

  1. She would be a good teacher for her kids to have, then, but she would be anyway, because she is teaching them wisdom, which is the most important thing to have in life. Happy Birthday, Kelly! Your gracious spirit is a blessing to those of us out here in TV Land!

  2. Kelly, you sure are a beauty, on the inside and on the outside! That inner peace must be the true fountain of youth. You make 50 look like the new 35!

    1. Ehm... not really! But this is good because it's actually vood to age, to live a full life. There's the misconception now that you have to (want to) be young forever, but why?

    2. What is "looking your age"? I've always wondered that. Some people due to life's hardships do "age faster" but for the most part we all age somewhat the same. It's a privilege to grow old. As a military wife we've known those who've not been so fortunate. So happy birthday Kelly Jo--you are beautiful at all ages:)
