10 Soap Opera Politicians Who'd Get Our Vote
No. 5: Trey Clegg, Capitol
The Cleggs had high hopes for golden boy Trey (Nicholas Walker) on Capitol. Unfortunately, fathering a child with a prostitute can prove quite the bump on the road to the White House! Trey came to love reporter Sloane Denning (Debrah Farentino), much more than his career, but constant meddling from his mother Myrna Clegg (most notably Marj Dusay)
and his baby with hooker Kelly Harper (a pre-The Young and the Restless Jess Walton) proved the Beltway supercouple's undoing.
By Capitol's end in 1987, Sloan was no longer involved with Trey. She was being romanced by Arab royal King Al, a relationship that ultimately found her before a firing squad, just as Capitol faded to black. Today people complain about being broken up with via text.
