HomeTVAll My ChildrenOne Half Missing: Which Soap Couple Would You Like to See Reunited? Luke Kerr July 29, 2011 51 Comments Next week one of my all-time favorite soap couples–All My Children’s Leo (Josh Duhamel) and Greenlee (Rebecca Budig)–will reunite in scenes on August 4. Even though Duhamel's return to his soapy stomping grounds is only a cameo, it is much appreciated. Reminiscing about Leo and Greenlee’s time together made me wonder, which former soap star, and their character, do you most wish would return to your favorite soap to be reunited with their great love, who is still onscreen? Share your most wished for reunions in the comments!

Log in to Reply watersblu2day July 29, 2011 On GH, I would love to see Sonny reunited with Kate (Maurice Benard and Megan Ward). It would have to be the original Sonny and Kate with Megan Ward! Log in to Reply troymcclure July 29, 2011 I want to see Jr and Annie reunited which of course will never happen since for some unknown reason AMC refuses to acknowledge an entire year of storyline for the two of them. I’m so bitter! Anyways..JR & ANNIE!!!! Log in to Reply BrownBetty July 29, 2011 EVANGELINE!!! Yes folks, I still want my TANGELINE! And with Trevor St. John and Renee Goldsberry. No one else will do! The chemistry those two shared was the most authentic, the most electric I’ve ever witnessed on a soap. Truly one of a kind. There was so much potential with these two actors/characters, they were GOLD together…second to none. If ever there were going to be a supercouple in this day and age, these two would have been it. They had it all: chemistry, great story potential and very popular characters played by two fantastic actors. UGH! Words cannot express how disappointed and angry I was when the IDIOTS IN CHARGE just let Renee walk away from the show, never giving Tangie fans the love story the pairing and the actors wanted and deserved. Now they have a golden opportunity to write Trevor’s Todd off by having him go and search for an ALIVE Evangeline. Only, they both return before the show ends (on tv) to wreak havoc on those who shunned TSJ’s Todd for RH’s Todd, (I’m sure that is what’s going to happen) who ultimatly turns out to be the real impostor. Yeah, I know that’s probably wishful thinking but a girl can dream! Log in to Reply TV Gord July 29, 2011 In a perfect world…my Top Ten Favorite Soap Couples (in no particular order)!

I thought the Todd/Evangeline relationship presented a great opportunity for the show to give Trevor a pairing that set him apart from RH. Tangie could have been something really special, overshadowing both TnB and TnT and we couldn’t have that! Log in to Reply An_Emmy_For_Julia_Pace_Mitchell July 29, 2011 Didn’t Josh Duhamel cheat on his wife, Fergie, a couple of years back? And if memory serves me right, wasn’t it with a stripper/pole dancer? How come the public seems to have forgiven Duhamel but they never forgave Tiger Woods? Log in to Reply Ravennite613 July 29, 2011 TV GORD Wrote “Mary and Burt Campbell, Soap” You are killing me I FLOVED that show and actually agree with 99.9% of your list…great list I adored Ben & Vicki that would make me smile like nobody’s business Maxie & Cooper – The man completed her and for me it was a story completely screwed up by youknowwho Monica & Alan – Her McMansion is just not the same My blast from the past Ryan & Vicki (AW) I mean we all know who I truly want but there was a time that Jason getting back with Robin would of curled my toes. Log in to Reply giogio July 29, 2011 EMMY FOR – you are so right. I could never understand this non-forgiveness stuff to the point of ruining a career. my mother always says, we never know what goes on in someone elses house. And there are three sides to a story, my side, your side, then the truth. Josh and Tiger went all out there. I dont care if unless it was my husband. Log in to Reply jlafferty23 July 29, 2011 I would love to answer the question but I’m going to address, An_Emmy_For… WHAT IN THE HELL does Josh “cheating” on his wife (if that’s even true) have to do with the question? What is with you bashing actors? It’s really becoming tiresome and annoying. The question had nothing to do with Josh’s personal life. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 July 29, 2011 Josh Duhamel’s PERSONAL life choices and decisions have NOTHING to do with his character, Leo, being a fan favorite or the fact that he had kick ass chemistry with Rebecca Budig. What an actor does in his or her personal life is really none of our business, as long as it doesn’t affect us personally. I don’t care who Josh sleeps with. I enjoyed his role on the TV show, “Las Vegas,” but I really haven’t even followed his film career since he left the show since most of his movies seem to be slightly cheesy, but he was great on AMC and I welcome his return. Log in to Reply babyc July 29, 2011 Bianca and Maggie. That is all I want, heck, just Bianca receiving a phone call from Maggie five seconds before AMC officially ends on ABC would be enough for this BAMmer. Log in to Reply GHfan-4now July 29, 2011 OMG! Okay, here goes, lmao. 1. RHTodd/Blair 2. GreenLeo 3. Jannie 4. Ryan/Gillian (only she can make him less of a douche) 5. EJami (because with new writing, maybe Rafe will get hit with a 2by4 and I won’t have to suffer through Safe anymore or Rafe’s sanctimoniousness.) There’s always more, but if I were forced to choose from the top of my head, this would be the pick!

Triple Yes!! Evangeline and Todd!!! Mating Gold. I love these two. Go get her, Todd, as you go off to seek who you ARE!! Renee and Trevor are sooooo real together, they are like a real life couple. They get married in my fan fiction! Yeah, I take them all the way there. phyonescott.blogspot.com Read it if you dare to BLUSH!! Everything was on point: the binding friendship, the ethereal love, the sexual attraction, the unwavering support. Then throw angst in there for Todd as John McBain attempts to reclaim Vange’s love. Let her be torn…but not for long. Her heart belongs to TODD. Don’t forget the rivalry with Blair for Todd’s affections. Soooo much story. What a disheartening missed opportunity. I could cry. I will cry. Pardon me while I curl up in a ball of misery. Log in to Reply cri cri July 30, 2011 Possible and extremely likely: 1. RH Todd and Blair 2. Viki and Clint 3. Leo and Greenlee Possible: 1. Neal and Drucilla Happening only in another universe: 1. LD Mason and Julia (SB) 2. Cruz and Eden (SB) 3. JD Keith and RM Gina (SB) 4. AH Victoria and Ryan (AW) 5. Cass and Cecile (AW) 6. Lorna and Gabe (AW) Most likely only temporarily broken up so not sure it counts: 1. Billy Abbott and Victoria Newman Abbott – the only currently compelling couple in all of soap-dom.

My young love couple is Lucky and Liz, but my adult passion is Jason and Liz…but Morgan doesn’t deserve my girl until he A) Let’s his balls drop B) takes said nuts out of Carly’s purse C) Stops bending over for Sonny. Liz shouldn’t have to be the only one fighting for them. Time for him to take up the sword. Log in to Reply MRainbird July 30, 2011 Definately Sonny and Carly! Fav couple of all time!

And on Knots Landing Laura was Greg’s true love, but they were dull, I kinda like Paige and Tom. Log in to Reply rony July 30, 2011 I wish robert and anna from GH would get back together. I also would like to see on Days Diana Colville return to reunite with Roman only to discover he was not Roman. I would also on Days like to see Mike get back with April. On Y & R I would like Paul and Lauren to get back together. On AMC I would like Erica to get back with Dimitri. Log in to Reply tedew July 30, 2011 They haven’t actually met quite yet …. but how about Katherine Chancellor and the Grim Reaper? Log in to Reply Ms 45 July 31, 2011 Lucky and Liz — which seems to be in the works. Log in to Reply Dyllan July 31, 2011 [quote]How come the public seems to have forgiven Duhamel but they never forgave Tiger Woods?[/quote] Because JD is pretty much a nobody and he “made it big” by marrying up. Tiger Woods is famous, so of course there will be more bitching about Tiger Woods. Back to the topic, Greenleo, Nash and Jess or whoever, , RHTodd and Blair, Taylor and Ridge. Log in to Reply SloppyMess July 31, 2011 Would love to see Greg and Jenny reunite before the end of the the show Log in to Reply wiggum August 1, 2011 I would love if Paul and Lauren got back together(sorry Nina) Log in to Reply Dyllan August 1, 2011 ^I would like to see Paul with the Bug before the show ends. Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 August 1, 2011 Had to think about this a little bit. A couple were easy and just wrote themselves… AMC–Ryan and Gillian (Loved Esta T.) Leo and Greenlee (For obvious reasons-Swoon! :love:) Y&R–Jack and Phyllis (Even though Phyllis is a royal pain in the butt, I always liked them together.) Someone will have to help me out here: Jack was married for a short time to a Vietnamese woman who had his son Kemo. In the story she passed away and not soon after Kemo was shipped off to work Jabot’s Aisian market, never to be heard from again. I do not recall the actress who played his mother but I reme- ber being quite touched by their story and admiring her work. GH—Luke and Laura (It may not be possible what with Genie being at Y&R. As well, from a story stand point, Luke may be too far gone to be redeemed. As much as I’ve loved his pairing with JE’s Tracy, it would still be lovely to see them working together.) 0:) Log in to Reply AlistairCrane August 1, 2011 Paul belongs with Nina! They are a wonderful couple and these days the only couple on Y&R worth rooting for. Log in to Reply Dyllan August 1, 2011 @SwanQueen59 Jack fell in love with Luan Volien and she was played by Elizabeth Sung. (Their son was found by the Bug (barf) and Paul. That show’s they should be a couple.) Nina belongs with Tomas in LA. Log in to Reply tedew August 1, 2011 SwanQueen59 … Luan Volien was portrayed by Elizabeth Sung who has done quite a bit of recent prime time work including Curb Your Enthusiasm, Hawaii Five-0 and FlashForward plus she appeared in Memoirs of a Geisha.

Enjoy your day… 0:) Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 August 1, 2011 SwanQueen– Peter Bergman stated in an interview a few years back that he did NOT like the story involving Luan and Keemo, and that he was not really open to the idea of either character returning to the show, so it’s doubtful that Elizabeth Sung or Philip Moon, who portrayed Jack’s oldest son, will return to the show anytime soon. I personally think it would have been great for Keemo to pop in from time to time over the years, or at least for Jack to mention him more. It makes Jack seem like an absentee father for not doing so.

Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 August 1, 2011 Alstonboy-I had not heard that tidbit about Mr. Bergman. (I learn something new here almost every day. ;)) As for Jack mentioning Keemo(and thanks for the “spellcheck” too), I think I can count once or twice I’ve heard his name mentioned and that wasn’t even when the writers had Billy in the Aisian market before they brought him home to GC. (History, writers. History.) Enjoy your day… 0:)! Log in to Reply david46208 August 1, 2011 @alstonboy4315: Wonder why he didn’t like the Keemo storyline? Guess he wanted purebred Abbotts…lol Log in to Reply david46208 August 1, 2011 Let’s see the couple I would like to see reunited would be Dru and Neil on Y&R. It’s about time and wild horses couldn’t tear me away from the TV if they were on together.
