SPOILED ROTTEN: 10 of Daytime's Best Loved Poor Little Rich Boys!

(No. 2) AJ Quartermaine, General Hospital

As questionable paternities go, AJ Quartermaine (most notably Sean Kanan and Billy Warlock) came into the world fairly simply, that is compared to the other poor little rich boys on this list. Okay, so his mother, Dr. Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson) wasn’t quite sure if her hubby, Dr. Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was the proud papa, or if her old flame Dr. Rick Webber (Chris Robinson) should’ve been the one handing out cigars. Unless someone stole sperm or boiled an egg to make him, AJ really didn’t have much to complain about, but complain he did!

He complained about his parents loving his younger half-brother Jason (Steve Burton) more than him. He complained about his grandfather pitting him against his cousin Ned (Wally Kurth) at the family corporation. He complained about Carly (then Sarah Brown) getting pregnant by him, then drugging him and throwing him in the gutter to pass off his baby on three other dudes. Okay, we understand him being peeved about that last part!

The only thing this poor little rich boy didn’t complain about was the way scotch burned as he poured it down his throat by the gallon. Maybe it would have been better for AJ if ol’ Rick had been his daddy?

I just started watching Days again in the fall, before that I hadn't seen the show since when the Gemini twins story, so this is the first I'm seeing of EJ and missed out on all that other stuff. I disagree that Him and Sami are like Todd and Marty, because Marty was a victim, Sami is no body's vicitim she has balls and can go toe to toe with anyone.
I do agree that Sami could have been the next Erica Kane and I could still see that happening the writers seem to be makeing Sami more selfish and selfabsorbed like she used to be.

But Sami's selfishness is not what gave her fans. That is not what makes her Sami.

It was her independant nature. Her get into trouble, I'll get out of trouble attitute. She used to be quick to anger and slow to forgiveness. She used to feel like she could mess with her family, but anyone else mess with would face her wrath.

But this Sami just gets handed jobs and apartments she doesn't deserve. This Sami is not sure of anything. She is fickle with men and life in general. She is backing EJ and Stephano when they have tried to destroy her and her family time and time again. Who knew she was so forgiving.

Sami has been ruined in the last several years and part of that happened when EJ came along and yes, they decided to make her his constant victim.

Two of the show's strongest bitches (Nicole and Sami) are wimps when they put them with EJ, a character whose bad deeds are erased with each new story. But what do I expect? They did the same thing with Kate and Stephano.

Overexposure kills any character and that includes Sami and EJ. I don't think James Scott is a great or even good actor but he's got what most of daytime lacks in male leads and even females. Charm, presence, and charisma. And as much as I dislike Victor, Braden still has charisma and presence. Id trade these 2 over any of the untalented lackluster wash up males on GH. I don't think putting EJ on 5'days a week is any better than Sami being on 5 days a week but what he suffers from most is inconsistent writing. This regime being the worse.

How about Y&R's Jack Abbott? How about OLTL's Todd Manning whose father mistreated him because he's not his biological son, who would then rape Marty Saybrooke and would later learn his real father is Asa Buchanan? How about Stefano Dimera's sons Tony and Peter Blake? How about Ross Chandler who was caught between the feud of his uncle Adam Chandler and father Palmer Cortland?
