15 Soap Opera Moms Who Didn’t Deserve Anything For Mother’s Day


No. 15: Dr. Liesl Obrecht, General Hospital


With a mother like Dr. Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) on General Hospital, can Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) really be blamed for turning out so screwed up? Dr. Obrecht loves only one person more than herself — Faison (Anders Hove), whom she frets over not providing with a son.

The nutty, international criminal-turned-hospital chief of staff did manage to give someone a male heir. We wonder if Detective Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) knows what he's in for, having a mutter like Obrecht?

Five Soap Opera Feuds That Spilled Over Into Real Life!


No. 5: Hunter Tylo vs. Katherine Kelly Lang, The Bold and the Beautiful


Their characters, Dr. Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo) and Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang), have fought over the affections of fickle fashion designer Ridge Forrester (Ronn Moss) since 1990 on CBS Daytime's international hit serial The Bold and the Beautiful. However, Moss' recent exit from the series—after 25 years—inadvertently led to a real-life Twitter dust up between Tylo and Lang!

Tylo responded quickly, denying the messy fan's claims and asked Lang not to get "caught up in the chaos." The fact that Lang was so quick to believe an accusation from a fan makes you wonder, what is really going on up in the House of Forrester?
