Guiding Light Moment: Billy to Mindy: “You’re NOT My Daughter!”


Welcome to one of the reasons why I watched Guiding Light. My older sister and I had to take a stroll back in time and relive the moments in our heads about what got us hooked on GL. I remember watching the storyline play out when one of soaps ultimate bad boys Roger Thorpe (the late Michael Zaslow) was hitting the sheets with his enemy Billy’s (Jordan Clarke) baby girl, Melinda "Mindy" Sue Lewis played by Kimberley Simms at the time. So what if Roger and Mindy were tearing up a box spring, they are both adults right?

That would be true if his WIFE Alexandra Spaulding (the late Beverly McKinsey) weren’t in the way. After Alex found out, she blackmailed Mindy and only later revealed the sordid affair when she couldn’t figure out another way to get that heifer out of her son Nick McHenry’s (Vincent Irizarry) life. The lesson my sister and I learned was to never mess with Alex Spaulding because old girl didn’t play!

    Why did everyone hate Roger, especially the Lewises. I felt bad for him. I remember when i was little, my Grandmother would put me down for a nap at 2pm so she could watch her Guiding Light, but i always remember her talking about how Roger was a bad man. Did he have any redeemable qualities, like loving his daughter Blake. More Roger clips please, now that is a soap legend; does anyone know any good Michael Zaslow and Elizabeth Keifer clips?

    I know Roger was always schemeing and stuff on the show. I felt he was a character that people loved to hate. Holly was always looking out for him and then his little Chrissy (Blake for those who don’t know her by that name). You could always tell that he loved his Chrissy and Holly. Oh the memories!

    Thank you for that clip, damn those were the best days on GL!!! I LIVED for the days with Alexandra, Roger and Mindy!!! Along with the amazing writing, stellar cast, amazing clothes and the big shiny jewelry you couldn’t get any better than this!
    I hated it when Kimberly Simms left as Mindy, that was such a crush to me because she was my favorite character on GL. Then Beverly McKinsey (Alexandra) and then Sherry Stringfield (Blake) all in the same summer! It was a 3 punch to the gut that I never got over.
    Like G271977 I would rush home before 3 to watch the show after school and nothing would stop me lol.
