DC's 10 Worst Soap Opera Couples of 2012

No. 10: Neil and Harmony, The Young and the Restless


We're sure the brass at The Young and the Restless hoped pairing uptight, buppie Neil Winters (Kristoff St. John) with another sassy, sistah from the streets would generate the same kind of heat Neil's relationship with street urchin-turned-fashionista Drucilla Barber (Victoria Rowell) accomplished in the 90's. It didn't.

Man, was it painful to watch two popular, talented soap stars like St. John as Debbi Morgan—as promiscuous, recovering crackhead Harmony— attempt to manufacture chemistry where there obviously wasn't any to be found.

Vanessa Marcil on Potential General Hospital Return: "Whatever is Best For The Show, I'm In!"




Could Brenda Barrett be on her way back to Port Charles on ABC Daytime's General Hospital? Vanessa Marcil seems to be open to the possibility! Here's what the beauty said in the Sept. 17-Oct. 1 issue of ABC Soaps In Depth:

"There's everything unresolved between Sonny and Brenda, which is the best,' Marcil tells Soaps In Depth excitedly, adding that she's on board with whatever the powers that be have in mind for her character. 'I want the show to thrive and do well, and it seems like the new regime is trying really hard. So whatever is best for the show, I'm in! If that would mean Brenda's there, I'm in. If that would mean Brenda's not in, I'm there."

The thought of having my Brenda back on screen for a good and proper reunion with Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jax (Ingo Rademacher)—I've erased the last stint where Guza lost his juice from my mind—is enough to send me into a fit of Brenda giggles. Heck, I might even run out and buy satin pajamas with the sleeves much too long!

Would you be excited to see Bren back on GH? Watch my fave, fave, fave Brenda MVID below, then sound off in the comments! READ MORE
