Daytime Confidential #250: CBS & Days Damaged Goods



On today's episode of Daytime Confidential Luke, Jamey and Nicki discuss As the World Turns' Carly and Holden and Cyndi Lauper's upcoming guest appearance.

We fantasize about what we'd like to see Sheffer do on Young and Restless and discuss Cane and Jill, Nia Peeples return and Judith Chapman's performance.

We discuss the "gold standard" of daytime sluts and the Bold & Beautiful's poor, poor Bridget.

Then we jump to Guiding Light and discuss Harley vs. Marina. The return of G and GL's mansluts.

Days of Our Lives is hopping with Nicole vs. Chloe and Sami, Lucas and EJ. We discuss how drunk tanks might be the way of the future and how John's brains on a disk floating around town has potential.

Usually I agree with Jamey, but I gotta go with Nicki on this one. Marina is NOT the slut here! Harley was the one who was openly sleeping with her niece's finacee and could not have cared less about Marina's feelings. Harley was the one who forgot her children so many times I lost count , just to get some from that Australian. Then when Harley and Cyrus' affair came out, Harley made it all about her. It was all about everyone needing to forgive Harley for what she did, screw Marina. Also, Harley is the one who has 3 kids by 3 different daddies. I know it's a soap and things like that happen all the time but it doesn't make Harley any less of a slut.

I agree that Harley have been hypocritically few the years and I feel both have been slutty for the past years and Harley always excuses her behavior instead of owning her mistakes.

I blame all the Harley stuff on the writers cos they ruined her and everyone else on the show. Can't wait to see BE on AMC.

We need a girl's night out for CBS/Days...

I am biased I admit because I LOVE Harley! LOL Actually I don't think either woman is a slut it's just that Marina lost me as a fan the moment she fell for Alan Michael. How the writers let her fall for a man who once believe he was her father was beyond me. It was totally and thoroughly disgusting. It would have been like Blake falling for Ed Bauer. But I definitely see your point. The Harley I once knew and loved would never hurt her niece that way, but on the other hand that storyline was one of the few I have been able to understand in recent years on this show. Harley was a woman come undone. She'd lost the love of her life, she was out of sorts and Cyrus was a swarthy, forbidden piece of fruit. So she took a bite! LMAO

Marina's not a slut, but she does tend to get herself into hopeless relationships that can't work. Even when the guys are hot and decent, they're totally inappropriate for a variety of reasons.

Ben was a nutcase.

Shayne was a rebound guy that I never sensed she had any real feelings for.

Danny was a still-married gangster.

Alan-Michael had been married to her mother and both of her aunts and it was his sabotage of Eleni's birth control pills that caused Marina to ever be conceived in the first place, that's just sick.

Mallet is far too old for her, has been married to the slutty aunt who destroyed her life, and he's her godfather and used to change her diapers when she was a baby. That's even sicker.

The only exception to this was her relationship with Cyrus and even that was a huge risk because of his criminal record, but they had a pretty good chance of working out since they had good chemistry, he was trying to get over his criminal tendencies, and up until Harley became obsessed with destroying them by any means necessary and succeeded, he hadn't actually screwed any of her family members.

---------------------------------------------------------
Harley on the other hand is the biggest slut imaginable. No, she hasn't been with that many other men than the other women on the show but it's the situations that she creates that make her such a contemptible person.

She's always cheating on somebody in one way or another whether there's sex involved or not. She is always deceiving, betraying, and lying to people who care about her, love her, depend on her, and trust her. That's what makes her such a tramp.

She didn't give a damn about breaking Marina's heart.

She didn't give a damn about betraying Dinah.

She didn't give a damn about throwing Gus away like a used Kleenex when it suited her.

She didn't give a damn about stealing Gus's funeral and the aftermath of his death away from his wife, Natalia, who truly loved Gus for years.

She didn't give a damn about turning the once intelligent, witty, and confident Cyrus into a brainless, castrated fool and then skipping out on him without explanation.

She just plain doesn't care about anyone but herself. Even her own kids can only be shoehorned into her day if she isn't too busy with one of her own petty egotistical melodramas. Her selfish, arrogant "I know what's best for everybody" attitude in regards to the Rafe situation proved that. Her kids are nothing to her. The only thing that matters is herself and her massive ego.

She is the textbook definition of narcissist. She is the only person on the face of the earth who matters, her feelings are the only ones that are real, and anything and everything she has to do to get what she wants is okay because everyone in the world is just a supporting character in the all-mighty Harley's life.

I for one am so glad she's not in Springfield anymore. Now if only we can get everybody to shut up about her.

Wink I want to see Cassie meets "G" I know it has to make Cassie feel like she is crazy, that the man who killed Tammy is in SF! ANd, I think that its more that just being "kind" to Jeffery! ( I don't blame the girl one bit!) I also liked seeing Reva and Josh together there are so good at just being together! I will pass on Mallet and Marina, I thought that he was her "uncle!?" I give up on gl with the whole "kissing cousin" thing! Ashlee better be watching her man. . . before he becomes Blake's "boy toy!"

Jay, I agree with u that Lucas has become a abusive jerk and Sami and him need to go their separate ways but I also don't want her with EJ because of the rape thing between them. I would love her to be on her own or somebody who will accept her for her and not try to change her.

cyrus a man-slut? wha?!?!?!?!?! the moment he crossed paths with harley he started sleeping around more, but before that, he and marina were bantering back and forth for months before anything happened. granted, he slept around europe as a thief, but it was all for a cause (sending money to his brother in australia, or something).

i agree with nicki that marina, although she's had a lot of troubled relationships, is not the slut here. i don't remember her sleeping with a man who was engaged to be married to someone else. harley does not seem to care at all about anyone other than herself. i mean she left town to take care of rafe, but i wonder how much of this is about her being a martyr and trying to make up for the pain she caused gus. to heck with her own kids! now marina's "with" mallet, but before harley left she didn't seem to care less about what mallet was doing with his life, unless she wanted his help on something.

great episode. y'all had me laughing on the floor!

I want her in charge of Titan or Basic Black and being a thorn in the side of Kate and John. I've always thought that Days wasted a lot of opportunities by not turning her into a powerful business woman like Kate.

Great show!

I'm on board w/ Jamey regarding Lucas/Sami...I never bought into their love story. They were always better as enemies. And w/ Chloe, it's so funny. I was SO excited when she came back because I love her and I liked that she had a little bit of an edge to her, but she started becoming unrecognizeable to me Sad

As far as Marina goes...to be fair I haven't seen the show since last year, but I never considered her a slut at all. Her relationship w/ Alan-Michael was really weird, but it was creepy on A-M's part not Marina's. It's understandable that A-M's history with her family wouldn't be a huge issue for Marina because she wasn't really around for it. I mean a lot of that happened when she was a child (his relationship w/ Lucy) or before she was born (his relationship w/ Harley - which ended what, 20 years ago?!). So while Marina knew about it she has no memory of it. Likewise, she never believed A-M was her father, so again, that's not something that's even in her conciousness. Was the relationship creepy? Yeah, but it didn't make Marina a slut. If anything it was A-M who was the freak! I mean what kind of man gets romantic w/ a girl he thought was his daughter?? (Who does A-M think he is, B&B's Ridge??)

BTW Jamey, I am SO looking forward to your What Sex in the City can teach Daytime blog!!

Luke, I like your suggestion of Sami going into business and taking over Titan and go head to head with Kate because we want to see a strong, independent Sami who don't need a man to take care of her. I feel fans of daytime fans want women to be strong and take care of themselves instead of relying on a man for help.
