Young and Restless' Abby Newman vs. General Hospital's Kristina Corinthos Davis: Which Reality TV Wannabe Do You Prefer?






Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Alexis Davis' (Nancy Lee Grahn) daughter Kristina (Lindsey Morgan) recently returned home to Port Charles with a chip on her shoulder and a camera crew filming her every snarky move on General Hospital. After finding out her gangster father strong-armed Yale into accepting her, Krissy quit the Ivy League and has decided to star in a reality show pilot called Mob Princess. Talk about harsh realities for the Corinthos-Davis clan! 

Perhaps Sexis can hop on a flight to Genoa City, Wisconsin to ask mega zillionaire Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and his ex-wife, cosmetics mogulette Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson), how they coped when their daughter Abby (Marcy Rylan) pitched a similar docudrama entitled The Naked Heiress?

Which SORASed soap reality princess do you prefer, GH's Kristina or Y&R's Abby?

I don't watch Y&R but I think I'm safe to say anything has to be better than nu-Kristina. Someone dropped the casting ball with that recast. She needs to go back to Yale yesterday. NLG is carrying the wieght in all their scenes, it must be exhauting for her.

Both are annoyingly spoiled brats, but Abby was a LOT more tolerable than Kristina. Seriously, I don't know what Ron is thinking, turning a character who Guza gave rooting value into an unrelenting bitch. It doesn't even really make any sense. A total personality transplant. And some people might find NuKristina entertaining, but I just want to fling a camera tripod at her...........

soap writers attempting to use "reality" plots to stay relevant only screams desperation for this soap fan. Remember when soaps stayed relevant by showcasing Jessie and Angie in a front burner love story, by confronting viewers about their fears over HIV, by daring to have women in powerful roles before any other genre did?

Now: the best writers can do is to attempt to steal the "luster" from the desperate mob housewives of the jersey shore? so sad.

I have no dog on this fight! Both characters bring nothing to their respective tables. Abby is played by the talented Marcy Rylan but there's been no real purpose to Abby since she was SORASed. Over at GH, Kristina has to be played by a talented actress to even be mildly enjoyable and the actress doesn't cut it. In fact, I think she would settle in nicely on a Disney show. Every time she looks directly into the camera I think, "Wonk, wonk." ala SNL's Debbie Downer. Wink

At least Abby had style. She knew what she was doing. She was the one in charge.

Kristina is just a spoiled brat, who doesn't know a thing about life. It's about upsetting her parents. So immature. -.-

I said Abby because she was in charge and she knew what she wanted out of it. Though I still didn't really understand fully what that WAS, at least I found it mildly entertaining when she'd get in public and strip down to NOTHING. And I found her introduction to be pretty good as well...after having not seen the Jabot set in FOREVER, we finally seeing Ashley in the office, while her daughter is downstairs holding a press conference NUDE....pretty hilarious.

As for Kristina...she's an attractive girl. Not really feeling the whole "Mob Princess" thing, and in this case, she isn't as in charge as Abby was. Kristina can't even control anything because she doesn't really know what she wants except to piss off the parents. BLAH...

So yeah, Abby doesn't really have much of a point, except to now say what a lot of us want to SAY to the characters, and be a bit of comedic relief, oh and she supports her mother...but other than that...she's kind of pointless, but I still like her better than NuKrissy

I like Abby's if I was forced to watch a reality show concept within my UNreality show of daytime soaps. With Abby's the camera was never really around as much and the arguments put forth by people over not being a part of it sort of kept them at bay. And it was orchestrated by Abby to be more "paparazzi" in style, like at gallery openings or dinners or, even a FOOLISH murder attempt confession.

Now, its barely there but still known.

With GH, it just seems like a silly concept and the fact that Alexis, a supposedly HIGH POWERED attorney, and Sonny, a RUTHLESS mobster, can't get a low-rent reality show producer to leave them alone or even out of it. Alexis isn't even able to kick the people/crew out of her own HOME! That just makes this story as stupid as aging Kristina and replacing her with an actress who looks less Greek or Italian than she does Hispanic.

That being said, if the writers want to save this train wreck of a boring time they could make it that the government is behind this as a way of doing surveilance on Sonny to bring him FINALLY DOWN. It would create a load of drama once it's revealed to Kristina's guilt over being involved (unknowingly) in bringing her father down, the drama of Sonny possibly FINALLY going to prison, and also the repercussions Sonny's kids, Carly and even Alexis.

The show needs to script things that have a bigger future and not just a narrow minded extension of horrible ideas putting to film.

Rylan's casting as Abby is one of the loathsome Arena Bell's better moves. When she first joined she gave the cast--especially Braeden--a jolt. Victor/Abby scenes were great back then. However, it's been pretty bad for Abby for a while now. I didn't mind her with Daniel, but Grazidei/Khalil's chemistry was far better and spelled a quick end to that pairing.

If Lexi Ainsworth were still there, I'd have to go with Kristina. But since this recast person took over, I'll go with Abby even though Ms Rylan looks about 35 years old compared to her "peers".

Like soapbaby, I also have 'no dog in this fight'. I just wish that the next time a teen or SORASed character is introduced that they be a character of some substance.
It's been a few years since I've been a teenager but I do know that they come in all different varieties, not just shallow. There are teens who are volunteering, raising money for many important causes, helping out parents and grandparents at home, improving their communities and affecting great change in the world.

I know it's daytime drama and all but would it not be a refreshing change of pace to see and aspirational character once in awhile? If not someone who has their head on straight then maybe just one who doesn't have the proverbial chip on shoulder?

Someone may have already drawn this comparison, but I think NuKristina has a remarkable resemblance to Skye (Robin Christopher). This young actress would be a GREAT casting choice to play Skye's daughter. I know Lila would still be too young to be SORASed so quickly...just saying the NuKristina would make an excellent progeny of Skye.

I couldn't vote for either one because both actresses are/were SO terrible in their respective reality show SL's that I FF'd through them. Thank god Y&R has basically dropped The Naked Heiress nonsense. MAB got the message that the story stank to high heaven...hopefully CarTini gets the message soon.

Not liking nuKristina at all, but if they start writing her a a more normal teenager (if there is such a thing) maybe she would be OK. Now that Abby is in storylines with Jack, Ashley and other young characters, I've actually started liking her, and I hated her as much as Kristina in the beginning.

I like Abby and think she does a good job. I find it kind of weird to try to compare the two, as I don't watch any other soap and so this is a wast of space in my humble opinion.
