Summer's 10 Worst Soap Couples

 No. 10: Adam and Melanie, The Young and the Restless

Can someone please explain why anyone at The Young and the Restless thought having Adam (Michael Muhney) sleep with a newbie lucky charm like Melanie (Erin Chambers)—who then accused him of rape—would provide riveting television? Anyone? Anyone? We didn't think so.

DC #730: Dreaded Newbies

On today’s Daytime Confidential podcast Luke Kerr, Jamey Giddens and Jillian Bowe debate the latest All My Children, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of Our Lives, General Hospital, One Life to Live and The Young and the Restless headlines and storylines, including:

Eileen Davidson has decided to leave Days of Our Lives to spend time with her family. Should Davidson return to The Young and the Restless as Ashley Abbott ,or should she wait until it’s in better shape? If Davidson does return to Y&R,should she demand to see a full-fledged storyline projection first, so she doesn’t end up like Melody Thomas Scott and Eric Braeden?

Who will fill Kristen’s bad girl stilettos when Davidson splits Salem? Teresa continues to drive Jennifer crazy on Days of Our Lives.

Luke wouldn’t mind having a Time Warner Cable blackout, if it means not having to watch last week’s painful The Young and the Restless.  Adam was accused of rape by Lucky Charms. Does anyone care about Neil’s mystery? Chelsea gives birth.  Why is Abby in such lame corporate storylines? No one wants to see the character of Carmine destroyed. Sharon has her eye on ex-hubby Nick.

William deVry is Julian Jerome on General Hospital. Is deVry age-appropriate for the role?  Julian has connections all over the canvas, from Sam to the much missed Lucas. Is Ava a mob assassin? Holly and Luke hold up a bank. READ MORE
