General Hospital’s Steve Burton on Favorite Storyline: “Leaving For Paris The First Time With Robin”



We Love SoapsRoger Newcomb has a new exclusive interview up with one of the most popular leading men in daytime, General Hospital‘s Steve Burton. In the chat, they discuss Soap Dishes: The Cookbookcollege football, Out of This World and of course, Jason Morgan. Check out what Burton had to say when asked which of Jason’s adventures is his all-time favorite story:

WE LOVE SOAPS TV: Favorite storyline of all-time?

Steve Burton: Of all time? It is tough to say of all-time but it is always the ones that probably have the most emotion. It has got to be leaving for Paris the first time with Robin. Those were a good couple of years on the show with Stone and Robin and Sonny and the whole thing, and Brenda. That was just a good three years of the show there. Sam’s baby was a good story. A lot came out of that story. There was Monica’s breast cancer. Remember she had that?



I won’t even begin to go into how disappointed I am that Steverific didn’t mention what we all know is really his best storyline of all-time, Liason’s reunion! That being said, I will forgive him and will still be ordering my copy of Soap Dishes: The Cookbook, especially since a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Desi Geestman Foundation, which works to improve the quality of life for kids suffering from cancer and their families.

Hmmm, maybe with Patrick (Jason Thompson) showing out like he’s done with crazy Lisa (Brianna Brown), GH should toy with the idea of putting Super Jase and Lil’ Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough) back in the same orbit? I’d like that a lot better than his relationship with that insecure, Brenda Bot, Spam (Kelly Monaco), even still—Liason-4-Life!

    I LOVED Robin and Jason. I loved Liason too, but I have accepted that JaSam are popular, and probably will stick until either Steve or Kelly leaves. That being said, hallelujah that he mentioned Monica’s cancer! So touching. I wish Jason and Monica could have a close relationship–her other children are dead! And she should at least know about Jake.

    I think it was because of the connection Jason & Robin had which was the basis for my love of Liason. Seeing Jason with someone who was his opposite as opposed to his female replicant was more enjoyable.

    Seeing two people with two separate lives try and make it work is much more compelling than female Jason-bot twisting her ankle because she went to a stake-out in five inch hooker boots. But that’s just me

    Robin&Jason were magical and Steve knows that, this is one of the reason he got Emmy in 1998..
    Really great S/L, that was touching..
    and I love seeing them now on GH.. like the amazing scene they had this year regarding Michael, Steve and KMC were fantastic..
    I wish we would have more Jason/Robin scenes, because she needs her friends now…

    I loved that he mention Monica cancer that was great S/L, that broke my heart, I wish GH now will take notice.. and jpp1975 i agree its a shame that Monica is not sharing scenes with her son, when he needs her now with what Michael is going trough… we could have had great scene of her visiting him and Michael in prison..UGH

    I so agree! While reading his interview I had hoped SBu would have mentioned LIASON and the birth of his son! LOL. Robin and Jason and leaving for Paris was an enjoyable storyline but there’s nothing better than LIASON.

    IA with Steve. Sam’s baby was one of his best stories– noticed you left that out, shockingly enough. Robin’s departure was also good.

    You’re only as good as the people you work against so kudos to Steve for picking his two strongest stories with Kim McCollough and Kelly Monaco.

    Jason and Sam were the last time he actually got decent, emotional material. It was an actual love story that as he points out provided ample material.

    It was also the last time Steve was nominated for an Emmy.

    Now Jason is more a supporting actor himself.

    Frankly I loved Jason with Robin, but never bought the fact that Jason got Sonny’s left over with Sam.

    I was surprised by the chemistry he had with Liz and loved the Liaison era.

    For me, other than when Jason interact with Brenda, he became irrelevant. Same old, same old.

    Not everyone age gracefully!

    Steve and Rebecca got in trouble for griping about Liason’s end to Digest, so of course he doesn’t mention Liason. It’s easier for Frons to manufacture popularity for JaSpam if the actors act like its a good story. Same with AMC and Rylee.

    Of course he can’t mention Liason. If you watch the show now Liason were never in love, don’t ever think about eachother, and were never good friends. I believe the last time he mentioned liking Liason he had his hand slapped by TPTB (complaining in the article that they broke up Liason). Guza – your brainwashing won’t work on me! I remember Liason and I miss them.

    That said, I always loved Jason and Robin. They were so good together.

    No offense Jamey but Steve gave the same answer when Jason was with Liz.. he always says that his best S/L were Robin, Monica;s cancer Baby Lila death, and Brenda wedding..

    The baby death S/L was really fantastic S/L that got him Emmy nom along with Kelly it was heartbreaking and real touching…..

    Actually, if you read above Steve clearly says that the Robin story was his favorite. He then goes on to say that Sam’s baby and Monica’s cancer were good stories too. “It has got to be leaving for Paris the first time with Robin.”

    Sooooo, instead of simply assuming that Liason isn’t one of his favorite stories, it’s now a covert elaborate publicity scheme with the idiots that run ABC Daytime??? Quick, call Mulder and Scully, there’s a conspiracy afoot!!!!

    And before you jump to conclusions, let me state I am not a JaSam, Liason, Jason/Robin, nor a Jason/Spinelli ‘shipper. I am, however, interested in seeing the proof of this statement.

    Like I love how what after 7 years her own big fan base out side of being with Jason her own family and the fact she had a another very popluar couple LuSam. PPL still try to bash Sam by the Brenda-bot Bullsh**. I love things like these how it gets some Liason fans all hyped up he didn’t mention Liason come on now. HA HA HA HA LMFAO HA HA. So it not possible that he didn’t like that s/l what was so great about compared to the ones he said that s/l didn’t add up. Hell are the journey fans upset he didn’t mention them.

    Like how you take your jabs and your up front basis Brenda-Bot BS. 7 years on the show proves that wrong a very popluars character and very popkluar actress so whatever.

    So JaSam isn’t popluar CHILD PLEASE and he can’t mention JIZ BS he did the samething whe he got with Liz. He never talked about Sam. So when he does this with Jiz it’s a cover up to keep down Jiz. But when it’s done with JaSam it’s fine these doublestandards never shock me.

    You know one way to very much prove Sam/JaSam are popluar is the fact that we Sam/JaSam fans come on THIS board still after the BS that gets posted and deed as fact.

    And the fact they trashed on JaSam for Jiz to put up that couple proves the BULLSH** you just said wrong. If it was true why did they do that sh** in 06-07. And then the Jizzers will agree with you call it fact when there is none. I swaer yall come up with the most conspiracy theories ever. Ya’ll can never anwser why Frons/Guza trashed JaSam for Jiz the way he did if he wanted JaSam to be deemed as this great thing. But gave Lizzard his kid had everybody in town prasing them. They gave ya’ll everything to start out with but NOOO it’s a cover up for JaSam GMAFB.

    I don’t really care that he didn’t mention Liason as one of his favorite stories in this interview. He has named the Liason story as one of his favorites in other interviews. He has also called the Liason story “the greatest story never told” when he was complaining about how TPTB ended the couple. I am not offended as a Liason fan that he mentioned Sam’s baby storyline because he did a great job with those scenes and it was the really meaty, emotional stuff that actors love to do. I did not think that KM did a great job with the material, but that is just my opinion.

    I think Jamey was just poking fun and giving his personal opinion.

    As for the conspiracy theories, they started writing Sam badly when she was playing games with contract negotiations (which she has a habit of doing – see last year when they put a casting call out for Sam McCall). Steve and Becky wanted to do Liason, so they jumped on board and were fantastic. Once KM was locked back in she went to Frons and bitched about not wanting Lusam and wanting Jasam. This was talked about in various personal appearances, articles, insiders and blind items. You can believe it or not – I don’t care, but don’t insult me for choosing to believe it.

    Jason and Robin was magic I can see why this is his favorite storyline of all time.

    I always looked forward to them …..then….cottage hell…and because of Jason moving in his trallop on Robin I stopped watching GH for nearly five years.

    I don’t usually comment on things like this too much, but… holla back, js3557, holla back! lol :)

    I loved Jason and Robin–actually, I liked Jason with anyone who wasn’t Courtney because I couldn’t stand her ass and I just can’t get behind him and Sam 2.0. Sorry, but for me, it makes no sense this time. I liked them all right during their first merry-go-round relationship, but after he threatened to kill her and they went back and forth on the bullsh*t train, I was done.

    Anyway, Robin and Jason were awesome back in the day. It’s ridiculous that TPTB don’t even acknowledge them as friends. Robin’s going through a hard time, her husband slept with a classless psychotic bimbo and she was stuck at the bottom of a well, and he has no idea that any of this has even happened? Can we at least get a ‘hey… how YOU doin?’ out of him? I say they need some screen time together, stat!

    Why is it that when Kelly fights for a fair contract – one that reflects her popularity, marketability and demand – she is “playing games” and yet when the big boys (tg, Sbu, and MB) band together to fight for their fair share thats okay. Are we still living in an age where its okay for men to fight for fairness, but women should mind their manners. PUH-LEASE.

    I was intrigued by something Sarah Brown said at her personal appearance at last years GH Fan Club Weekend. She said she only signed a one year contract because it gave her some control over story. She was happy she did that because she had no interest in playing a one note evil character (she asked why we liked Claudia because she said she was struggling to find anything redeeming in the character) and she said she had no interest in become the “new Ric Lansing” of PC – always getting dumped on, always to blame/the scapegoat, always the villian etc.

    I dont understand why kelly should be faulted for wanting to use short term contracts to her advantage just like many other popular daytime notables do.

    And at the time, Daytime Dish has hinted that when SBu thought Kelly was going to bail, he went to the writers and asked that Sam be made the bad guy in the break up so that his character wont be “left holding the bag” after the split. That honestly makes sense if she leaves for them not to have damaged the character they actually still have on the canvas. Cant fault SBu if thats true. And clearly RH and SBu were on board! – Why wouldnt they – thats not a reflection on preference – if Steve thinks is leading lady is going to shoot for prime time OF COURSE he is going to want a new leading lady. In fact, MB just did an interview where he hinted that he didnt want to be left with no one should brenda move on. Not having a romantic interest is storyline death on soaps.

    I absolutely DO NOT however believe that Kelly went to Frons and complained about LuSam – Kelly was getting big play with LuSam including doing a hosting stint I believe with GV when they did the sexiest stars of Daytime on TV Guide. Wasnt Kelly at #1 and GV #3 something like that? I would not however be surprised if she went to Frons and complained about a lack of air time and honestly why shouldnt she? At that point, LuSam had a following but most of the relationship development was happening off screen. If you were doing great work at your company but all the plum assignments always went to someone else, wouldnt you fight for your chance to shine? Why shouldnt Kelly – an enormously popular daytime star with high name recognition – not want to have opportunities to be involved with big story? I am sure Kelly knows that if GH doesnt want to use her, ANY other soap would kill to have her. I am sure RC would drool at the prospect of reuniting her on OLTL with Michael Easton – as just one example.

    JS it seems like you are painting kellly as some spoiled brat who bitched and moaned until she got her own way, at the same time extolling RH for fighting to get storyline for Jiz. I just dont get it.

    And Jillian, yep, sometimes DAYTIME Confidential DOES feel like LIASON Confidential. Sorry, just MY opinion.

    EET that’s all on you then. When you start to question journalist integrity that’s where I have a problem since I have a B.A. degree in journalism. It was a joke it wasn’t some post on the NY Times or the Washington Post that is an in-depth story or investigative feature. If you feel that way then you can always go to another site. I’ve said before and even made a post stating I am a Jasam fan but because I don’t feel like posting from the rafters I love Jasam doesn’t mean its LIASON Confidential.

    Please stop calling her a brenda-bot! if anyone’s the brendabot it’s liz. their history is more alike and their inability to commit to men who will commit to them is practically identical. i mean the whole “i can’t be with her/him” dialogue between brenda and sonny (why don’t they have squish name?) and liz/jason is basically interchangable.

    sam has way more in common with carly than brenda. it’s like saying sam’s a robinbot because they look similar.

    Stop the madness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I preferred Robin and Jason over:

    His crush on Karen Wexler: we hardly remember ye!
    His dating Keesha Ward: they were cute, but not sexy
    His fling with Carly: she should be flung!
    His marriage to Courtney: Boring, boring, boring, er, boring :sick:
    His relationship with Sam: :~:
    His ‘time’ with Elizabeth Webber: never really given a chance to be a ‘real’ couple thanks to the head honchos

    So yes, I’d rather Jason and Robin be given another chance, even though I know it’ll never happen thanks to TPIC, but a girl can dream. Robin was better with Jason and didn’t take any of his crap. Ah, the good old days of yore now nothing but a sorry snore.

    I totally agree with you EET. This site does feel like Laison Confidential. It is funny how everytime we notice negative bias towards Jason/Sam pairing, the reaction is that whatever is said is meant to be a joke. If that is the case, this site is full of jokes, but I am definately not laughting. Why is the title of the article only include Jason and Robin? Steve Burton included Jason and Sam’s losing of the baby storyline and Monica’s cancer storyline. I did not see that included in the heading which is misleading. I for one will follow Jillian’s advice, and jump ship from this site. I am sure there are plenty of other sites that give ALL the information correctly.

    Although, it might be worth it just to see Carly”s head explode.

I love the site too much to just choose another one but it has made me comment a lot less than I used to…it just seemed pointless….

    Sorry Perkie!!

    But, somebody has to save Jason from his current boredom filled situation. I should add that I would only want Jason with Robin if she was leaning on him as a friend and encouraging him to get away from Sonny. I hate Jason’s endless Sonny support. Sonny is an idiot and makes Jason look foolish. I would really like Sam with Sonny so I can fast forward through them both. It would be way more expedient.

    I loved Jason & Robin the first time around, but in no way do I want them reunited now with Robin having a child unless Jason left the mob and I know he’s never going to leave the mob.

    I’m not really a fan of either Liason or Jasam, but of the 2 I prefer Jasam because I think Sam fits into Jason’s life better than Liz does (although I much prefered Lusam to Jasam – loved Kelly and Greg’s chem together). Also, I hated the way Liason got together. I think I would have been okay if Liason had gotten together way back in the day instead of Jason/Courtney (anything would have been better than Journey to me), but I hated their story this time around.

    It is interesting that SBu’s favorite story, Robin leaving for Paris the first time, is the one that happened under Wendy Riche’s watch. I think the show was much better when there was a strong EP like Riche to reign Guza in. Too bad we have powerless JFP now.

    Wait I want to know how everybody thats a basher claims KM went to Frons and beg for JaSam when she was promoting LuSanm and the fact her and GV are very close on and off set. But I love how nobody here knows what happend again claiom it as fact. Does Js3557 I think that’s them work for them or is this again something that got started by haters and claimed as true.

    Cause what was said after KM got back from her show in vegas what was said they wanted to give her more airtime because both her and GV took time off. And now it’s she asking to work with SB. And when does KM get what she wants over SB it’s SB the golden boy of abc daytime how the hell does KM get what she wants over him.

    I love how haters flip-flop first it’s SB wanted JIz and got Jiz but KM say she wants JaSam now it’s oh she get what she wants over him how.

    Jillian I dont want anyone to censor themselves, what I was refering to was the fact that SBu was asked what was his favorite and he answers “It is tough to say of all-time but it is always the ONES that probably have the most emotion”

    ONES being plural.

    Burton then gives three examples of what he considered stories that had the most emotion J/R (which was one of my favorites) JaSam (which was my all time favorite Jason related story) and the Monica has Cancer story (another one I really loved) so the headline really suggests that he picked one story and one story only. Add in the fanguurl commentary about jiz NOT being named, it feels like baiting.

    I mentioned in Perkies obs a week or so ago that it feels like a lot of the Sam/JaSam fans have stopped posting over the last three months – I dont know if its that they are content that their fave is together or if its just the constant negativity that just made it less fun altogether (I was then accused of leading a boycott which is patently false)but at times the bias seems heavy handed because it comes in an official capacity, not just the posts in the thread.

    As for you blackjack….grrr…LOL….Lizard is no more a brendabot than Sam is a BrendaBot. If anything Lizard is a Lily bot – mealy mouthed, vanilla and totally lame except when it comes to being judgemental and then she was just lame AND snarky (and giving credit where credit is due, I imagine being boring and mean at the same time takes some real skill LOL) Plus they both held on to men that loved someone else by procreation. This pod Brenda – which is nothing like the character use to be – has some similarities with Lizard but she is wayyyy cooler and men actually have a hard time getting over her whereas Jason Nik and Lucky got over you know who so fast I might have to start calling her the Whiplash Wonder.

    EET, Jamey has what Steve said. He didn’t "Censor" anything. Case closed on that and he would NEVER do that to himself anyways. Look, if you feel that DC is LC then maybe this isn’t the place for you. It isn’t as such and I’m just tired of saying so. I’m not about to post Jasam videos/features/columns to dispute this. Jamey has never hidden the fact which couple he prefers and won’t start to because some feel as though its "Liason" Confidential as you claim it to be. As I’ve said before I am a Jasam fan but am not going to act as though they are the end all that be’s all of couples and will get into a match about a fictional pairing to disprove your claims. I don’t know about any boycott or whatever you are referring to. I’m all about the business and that is DC, not some drama on who’s not positng because its a pro/con/up/down/left/right site for Jasam or Liason. I just have a huge problem when someone tries to question my or colleagues  journalistic integrity just because he isn’t praising a couple some like more than others.

    Perkie now is the time for super Jason to come on in and help Robin… Don’t block that now.. *LMAO!*

    ?? Jillian I think we are talking past one another. You said you wouldnt want Jamey to censor himself. I said I agree, I wouldnt want ANYONE to censor themself. What my point was pertains to the statement – that steve burton cited 3 favorite stories not one. Thats the beginning, the middle, the up, the down and the sideways of what I posted. Color me confused.

    If you read his statement you would see that Steve "clearly" states leaving for Paris with Robin was his all-time favorite story.

    Steve Burton: Of all time? It is tough to say of all-time but it is always the ones that probably have the most emotion. It has got to be leaving for Paris the first time with Robin. Those were a good couple of years on the show with Stone and Robin and Sonny and the whole thing, and Brenda. That was just a good three years of the show there. Sam’s baby was a good story. A lot came out of that story. There was Monica’s breast cancer. Remember she had that?

    We must have different definitions for "clearly’. Steve referenced Sam’s baby and Monica’s cancer story, but he "clearly" said when asked:  It has got to be leaving for Paris the first time with Robin

    Saying: Sam’s baby was a good story.  And mentioning Monica’s story was him "clearly" mentioning other stories he enjoyed, but again, he "clearly" said leaving for Paris with Robin was his all-time favorite.

    I wasn’t even a fan of Jason and Robin, so how does it serve my "evil Liason agenda" to pull this particular quote? The man said Leaving with Paris for Robin was his all-time fave, then he mentioned to other stories he liked. Maybe "clearly" doesn’t mean the same to everyone.

    Ghvetfan, I don’t think Robin would convince Jason to leave Sonny, since she’s so pro Sonny lately.  Going so far as to hook up her good friend, who went crazy the last time she dated Sonny.  It’s truly the only thing I dislike about Robin, is her feelings for Sonny.

    Jillian, NO NO NO!!  Robin does not need Jason’s help, when she has hottie Mac to help her. 

    I find it interesting that we get one pro LIason comment within a Steve Burton column, and somehow that means this site is Liason Lovers Lane.  Puhleeze.  (Disclaimer:  I am not a Liason fan, just in case, someone wanted to throw that back in my face)

    But what about a friend that helped her move on from Stone and get her life back.. that always had faith in her.. remember her PPD, when she fell to the water. some believed she did it herself Jason didn’t..
    She needs him now as she needs all her friends.. not Patrick who got her in to this place.. funny thing is that Patrick is not mobster but he put her life in danger…. Haaa

    I am not wanting Robin and Jason back I am JaSam fan 100%.. I think they are so different now that it won’t work, But I love their friendship, and how they try to help each other,when the writers want it, like with her PPD or him with Michael.. why can we have it now??? UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    Ghlover, if Jason is a friend only, I’m okay with that.  I do NOT want a romance between them.  I also don’t want Super Jason to be the one to save the day like he always does.  If he’s a shoulder to cry on, fine, but I want someoen else, preferably Mac to prove that LIsa is the whack job and haul her butt to Pentonville.

    Perkie – I know Robin is too far up Sonny’s behind but I wish that she wasn’t. I wish she and JAson could reconnect without it being all about Sonny. It is just wishful thinking.

    Jamey – The article is perfectly clear. Steve Burton liked Jason and Robin’s time together. He clearly says he has always liked the emotional stuff. I think that is pretty standard for any actor. He also liked his scenes of loss surrounding the baby and Monica’s breast cancer story. He is not saying that he liked the three stories equally. He also never said that he was including Jasam. He was speaking about the death of the child and not Jason’s relationship with Sam. This was not him saying he prefers Jasam over Liason but that is what some want to read into it.

    Perkie I don’t want Jason to solve this please no.. he is already have to help Brendaaaaaa and Dante Blah Blah
    with the Bulkan… I want it to be solved by the cops for once and mac!!! uncle mac to the rescue ..

    But as I said I want them to share a scene when he helps her emotionally,gives her courage as he did before.It can be great… Just wish the writers will allow that, when she Visit Brenda Jason is there and they talk… its not too much.. :(
    or maybe with Michael.. :( she did help Jason raise him when he was a baby..

    Ghlover, I agree with you especially regarding Robin and Micheal, but if the writers have already forgotten that Steven knew Lisa was crazy two weeks ago, how can we expect them to remember that Robin dated Jason ten years ago and she was essentially a step mom to Micheal for a short period of time.

    Ghvetfan, everyone must be up Sonny’s butt and if they aren’t well they’re just evil (Ronnie)

    GHvettfan and Perkie we can all agree the writing just sucks!!! they don’t remember the characters history..
    I am surprised we had Robin and Brenda… or them talking about Jason and Sonny???!!!

    I hate it when we have OLTL and we see characters that don’t usually sees each other but when there is crises they do meet, Like with Danny/Star/Hope kidnap… why can’t GH do it??? it won’t be stupid it will be great..
    have a scene where Robin goes to see Brenda like yesterday after she saw Lisa, Brenda is not around Jason is there and they talk??? or Robin sees Michael notice something is wrong and goes and sees Jason and confront him??? UGH GH writers have no real sense to the history of the characters…

    Perkie, think about it. Jason can scare the crap out of Patrick because lets face it.. Even though Patrick pretends to be secure in his relationship with Robin, it STILL bugs him the PC mob’s 2nd in command was with his wife. Patrick is an adventure seeker and his thrills can’t even compare to Jason’s lunch time shootout. *LOL* This would make Patrick buck up and treasure what he has. Mac can’t do all that for Robin! *LOL*

    Jillian, I’m afraid if Patrick can’t buck up and realize what he’s lost all on his own, then he doesn’t deserve the fantabulous Robin Scorpio.

    for anyone still reading, let me explain myself on the liz being more like brenda than sam.

    both brenda and liz come from upper-middle to upper class families; both of those families basically dumped their daughters off to focus on more “important” things. Both came to town as wannabe sexpots and crushed on people who only wanted to be friends. both were besties with the softer geekier girls (robin/emily); both were “adopted” by prominent families (quartermaines/spencers). both modeled, both lost their ever-luvin’ minds. both eventually fell for the bad boy but couldn’t hack their lifestyle.

    that’s all i meant. jillian please don’t ban me from any jason/sam :)meetings, i totally love that coupling, just super tired of the brendabot stuff, which to me it completely unfounded.

    Blackjack – I can only speak for me but my reasons for thinking Sam is a Brendabot is simple. Brenda and Jason were thrown together because Jason had to take care of her for Sonny because of his reuniting with Carly. They lived together in the penthouse and it seemed to me that they would have ended up in a romantic situation if Vanessa Marcil hadn’t left the show.

    Sam comes along and gets placed in Jason’s penthouse so Jason can take care of her for Sonny because he has reunited with Carly. Sam stays longer and ends up with the plot that was intended for Brenda. It has less to do with the hair for me. I cannot speak for Jamey or anyone else. Sam and Jason is simply a watered down version of a story that I was enjoying. I liked Brenda with Jason and I do not see the chemistry between Sam and Jason that her fans seem to see.

    The only similarities that I see between Sam and Carly is tht they both bow down before Jason and lt him always have his way. He really is a saint to them. Brenda challenges him and confuses him.

    I don’t really think that Sam is Brendabot in that I think they have very different personalities and backgrounds. I do think that ABC hoped that KeMo would be their next VMG, basically their next breakout female star to fill the void that VM left and maybe Sarah Brown to a lesser degree (and I do think Kelly is quite popular), so in that sense I guess I could buy Sam and a Brendabot, although I think it’s more about one actress trying to fill the vacuum left by the other address and less about GH trying to make one character into a replacement for the other.

    If anything, I tend to think Carly became the Brendabot after VM left. Carly has gone after Brenda’s sloppy seconds, and Carly became the woman that every many found irresistible and beautiful woman in the world. And to me, that was never who Carly was before. When Carly first came around, she was the underdog, she was the woman that felt like she was the one men kept as mistresses but would never really love. When SBr played her, I always got this sense of self-loathing, like she felt like she was really ugly and had to fight for everything while pretty princesses like Brenda got everything handed to them. When Brenda left, I think GH wanted Carly to replace Brenda as the central diva that no man could resist, and Carly morphed from the underdog to the queen bee that she is today (at least until Brenda came back).

    Considering both KM and VMG are petite brunettes coupled with how they shuffled Sam from one of Brenda’s men to the next has me to believe she was being billed as the next Brenda.

    @EricasEvilTwin, post #35

    It’s ish like that makes being a soap fan today hard to justify…..

    And at the end of the day, I don’t get why people get themselves in a tizzy over who is with the Brain Damaged Wonder. Why anyone argues about who’s with St.Jasus is beyond me. And DC shouldn’t be pro any couple. If I had my way, it be Anti-Jason Confidential
