25 Totally Innocent-Yet-Oddly-Inappropriate Soap Scenes



While the old adage tells us "a picture is worth a thousand words", sometimes context is equally important. Soap operas crank out episodes 52 weeks a year, so it's no surprise sometimes even the most innocent scenes can end up seeming oddly inappropriate.

For example, if you never watched One Life to Live you might raise an eyebrow wondering what exactly Tea (Florencia Lozano) and Victor (Trevor St. John) were up to in the scene above.

Here are 25 Totally Innocent-Yet-Oddly-Inappropriate Soap Opera Scenes we found in the Daytime Confidential archives.

Ex-ATWT Stars Find Their Next Acts


Former As the World Turns vixens Terri Colombino and Maura West (pictured above with Jake Silbermann, Eileen Fulton and Michael Park) have found work on other soaps, but in an excellent piece entitled "Stay Tuned for Soap Stars’ Next Acts" ,The New York Times takes a look what your other favorite former ATWT stars are doing to keep busy these days.
Two years later Mr. Silbermann began writing a short film script about a drug-smuggling American soldier returning from Iraq. He gave himself a secondary (but juicy) role as a tattooed, slightly demented drug connection. “I knew at the very least it would improve my reel,” Mr. Silbermann said.

With more than $50,000 raised through the online fund-raising site Kickstarter (and the loyalty of generous Nuke fans) Mr. Silbermann and the director, Nathan Crooker, shot “Stuffer” over four days last summer. The film, which Mr. Silbermann hopes to expand to feature length, won the jury prize for best short film at the Royal Flush Festival last month.

“I am, in a word, encouraged,” Mr. Silbermann said.
