Belle Clemens

Belle Clemens is a fictional character on the now-defunct American soap opera The Secret Storm. She was played from 1968 to 1974 by actress Marla Adams.

Beautiful but vindictive Belle is best known for her longtime rivalry with Amy Ames, of Woodbridge, New York. Belle had lost her illegitimate daughter Robin, (she was divorced from a man named Charlie Clemens) in a boating accident and blamed Amy, her former friend, for it. She simply enjoyed making life miserable for Amy, and proved to be good at it.

She stole Amy's husband, Paul Britton (Nicolas Coster), driving her into a nervous breakdown and basically did the crimes and schemes that all villains do.

After using Paul and then throwing him away, she married a man named Dan Kincaid (played by the late Bernard Barrow) who she thought would become the state's next governor, but he lost. In a forced kinship, Amy married Dan's son, Kevin, making them in-laws, but they still hated each other, and would do so until the end of the show.

When Amy was artificially inseminated by Dr. Brian Neeves, Belle caught wind of this from a nurse named Martha Ann Ashley (Audre Johnson), who was one of her co-horts. She used this information to extract blackmail money from Amy to keep her new lover full of racing cars. Once more, Belle bit off more than she could chew, however, when her new lover Robert fell for her one-time ward, Joanna Morrison (played famously by Audrey Landers).

At the show's end, she left her husband, Dan, and, keeping true to her selfish nature, and having made Amy's life completely miserable, went on to a glamorous singing career.

Belle's full name was Belle Clemens Britton Kincaid. She was one of the rare villainesses who was a villain because she enjoyed it.
