Who Should Greenlee be Paired With on All My Children?



On today's ABC podcast we discuss All My Children's misleading promos claiming Ryan (Cameron Mathison) and Greenlee (Rebecca Budig) are each other's "true loves." Anyone who watched Ryan with Gillian (Esta TerBlanche) or Greenlee with Leo (Josh Duhamel) knows that just isn't true.  Instead of forcing yet another contrived Rylee incarnation on fans, why not pair Greenlee with Jake (Ricky Paull Goldin) or David (Vincent Irizarry), both of whom she has more chemistry with?

Who should Greenlee be paired with?

David - Greenlee and David need to further explore their connection.

Given those choices, I voted for David, but truthfully, I'd rather see them bring on a new character for Greenlee; perhaps a recast of Trey, Kendall's, Leo and David's half-brother?  Yes, David and Greenlee have history, but I think he's too old for her, plus, I'm holding out hope that if GH doesn't want Finola Hughes, she'll bring Anna Devane (or maybe even Alex!) back to AMC. David and Anna were great together, and she called him on his BS. 

Jake and Amanda deserve to have some happiness for a little while w/o anyone interfering in their lives.

Rylee? Again? BTDT.  ZZZZZZZZZZZ.

No, Greenlee needs someone new to Pine Valley.  What's Chad Brannon (ex-Zander, GH) doing these days?

It's so funny because I chose David but really anyone but Ryan would be great...and yet you know thats what tptb are going to give us another Ryan/Greenlee "true love" crap storyline.

What Ryan needs to do is go fall off a cliff again, and ACTUALLY DIE!

This is how I'm thinking to, put Greenlee with anyone but Ryape Lavery!! Jake would be good...I saw chemistry with those two, and it would be really great with Amanda in the mix. But Greenlee and David's relationship..I just love it, I really enjoy their scenes together and they are both so genuine and caring!! They are smokin' together!!

Long live GREED (David/Greens)! :)  They are perfect together, in every way! :)

The ABCD VP of Daytime Programming loves their (V/R's) chemistry too and said they would NOT shy away from a D/G romance! Smile

I would welcome Greenlee and Jake if that meant David somehow winning Amanda back and really falling for her and apologizing saying he held back telling her Trevor was Jake's cuz he was devastated and didn't want to lose her.

I like David and Greenlee too.

I heard they put out a casting call for someone named "ash" as a potential love interest for her anyway.

Please no Ryan. I can't stand him. Keep him with Erica so I can fast forward still when they are on alone together.

Way to tell the press you 2 are together Erica before telling Kendall.

We do need a new BAM or Bianca/Reese.

How about  Greenson or Madlee?   Madison and Greenlee!  Smile

How bought they cast Jessica Leccia let her play a character she plays best (aka a sweet, heck throw in catholic woman) and put her with Greenlee I'd watch, the former Otalia fans would probably watch and its a win win....hey a girl can dream right Wink

I think Greenlee has chemistry with both David and Jake but Jake and Amanda seem to have a pretty big following so it probably be better to go with Greenlee and David. But anyone but Ryan is good.

GREED is a pretty good handle for Greenlee and David, but I would prefer GRAVY.  Hee hee.

It's too bad to see David (my choice) in the lead, because you know the powers that be will never do what we want!

I think it's time for Ryan to get an identical twin and then he can go screw himself.  That's really the only "true love" left for Ryan to explore.  Unless there's an actor who looks like Frons, because it's obvious those are the only two scenarios that will satisfy the BF (Brian Frons, I mean). 

I think the reason Rebecca's last return was such a disaster is because they rehashed Rylee, when everyone was already over it.  I hope this red-hot hatred she has for Ryan isn't a red-herring and they plan to put them together again.  I haven't started watching again...I'm waiting to be sure they are giving me a reason to return.  If it's Greenlee and Ryan, that's not it.

The only man the Greenlee belongs with and should be with is the love of her life, Leo du Pres. He should come back. 2nd best option for her if she can't have her soul mate: ANYONE AS LONG AS IT ISN'T RYAN!!!

Josh Duhamel will never return to AMC and I would never want to see a Leo recast.

The only time I ever cared about Greenlee was with Leo, same thing with Ryan. Never cared for any pairing he's had except Gillian. Ryan needs to sit on the backburner for awhile. He's got GMA & other things going on. Pine Valley doesn't need Ryan 24/7. It's surviving very nicely without Kendell & Zack too. Imagine that? 

If they put Greenlee with David, I hope they would bring back mommy Proteus to give Greenlee some more hell. Now that would be fun to watch. lol

GreenMe should be paired with DEATH. I hate this bitch more than anything.

Greenlee and David.

Both accepts the other , flaws and all and doesn't lecture or judge. They are perfect for each other .

They revel in each other's darkness...and the writers let Greenlee keep her snark with him!!

Love the Gravy name. With good writing they could be this for AMC!

I love the Gravy idea. But if Leo were to be recast, I think Jeff Branson would be fabtastic!!

Everyone seems to have forgotten that when Greenlee first came on the show she was invloved with Scott, they were returning from film school. I think it would be interesting to see Annie and Greenlee fighting over Scott, especially since Annie is married to Adam. Scott could be a viable candidate, he is single, he is not too old, he isn't happy with Amanda and he isn't Ryan!

I heard that DC is leaving so they gotta put Annie out there.

I would LOVE to see OLD Greens go up against Crazy Annie!

And between the 2 of them they can BOMB Gerica! GAG!

DC leaving is just a rumor, just as it was last year around the time of Stuart's death.  Don't believe it until there's confirmation.  I don't think he's going anywhere.

I voted for David/Greenlee. Very hard for a former Rylee fan. Another great pairing would be Greenlee and J.R. I don't know why but I keep thinking now that bitchy Greenlee's back she would be *great* with an evil J.R!

I think Greens could tap into Scott's quasi-evil side...I wouldn't count that out.

But I am in the Gravy camp (thanks to those who like the name)!  Smile

If psycho Annie can't make Scott edgy/interesting, then no one can.  Greens couldn't even do it when they were first together!  David and Greens don't even have to work hard at being edgy/interesting, they just ARE, and they each embrace the darkness in the other! :)

Trying to make Greens into a sappy heroine for generic six-pack "good" guys to save is what nearly ruined this character, and it's what RB specifically said she did NOT want to play again!

Yeah, David and Greenlee would be a cute couple, as long as Greenlee continues to be written as the fiery, exciting character that she used to be back in the day!!

When she came back in 07', the writers clearly wanted to turn her into some weak, pathetic shell of the former self, and then they just got lazy and decided to put her back with Ryan out of habit.

I actually kinda' liked Ryan and Greenlee back in the day for about five minutes, but.........

I am not really feeling her "chemistry" with Jake, and I agree that Greenlee would get bored with Scott in about five minutes...unless the new writers decide to give him an EDGE!!!!

I agree that the show needs to move FORWARD with Greenlee's love life, not backward!!
