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.


WISHFUL CASTING: Soap Superstar Robin Christopher as Phyllis on The Young and the Restless!


Okay, let's be real. Michelle Stafford is damn near irreplaceable. I still have nightmares about that Sandra chick who played Phyllis for a time. However, The Young and the Restless is at the beginning of a RED-hot paternity story almost a decade in the making. Said story requires the character of Phyllis Summers Romalotti Abbott Newman to be present and accounted for in Genoa City. Therefore, the soap has GOTS to recast!

While names like As The World Turns' Martha Byrne and Guiding Light's Liz Keifer are already being bandied about by fans on Twitter as potential Phyllis recasts, I think one of daytime's most famous redheads would provide a sophisticated air to the bitch-nasty role. What about multi-soap vet Robin Christopher as NuPhyllis?

Who Should Run ELQ on General Hospital?

* Tracy is the obvious choice to lead her Daddy's company into the future! * Ned is the ultimate gatekeeper; give him the reins of ELQ! * AJ has grown into a better man; let him lead the family firm! * ELQ needs a fresh, young vision; Michael is the perfect choice! * Edward should leave everything to Jason's heir, with Sam serving as trustee! * Heather Webber would be a hoot atop ELQ!

Kassie DePaiva Previews Blair Tangling With “Powerful Women” on General Hospital!


One Life to Live's Blair Cramer (Kassie DePaiva) will soon be popping up again on General Hospital, and it sounds like viewers will be in for a treat. In a blog post on her official website, DePaiva teased Blair's upcoming interactions with Skye (Robin Christopher), Tea (Florencia Lozano) and Carly (Laura Wright). Said DePaiva:
I hope everyone will be happy with this next little stint on General Hospital. Most of the time was spent with Robin Christopher (Skye), Florencia Lozano (Tea), Laura Wright (Carly).... Three incredibly talented powerful women that I have so enjoyed sharing the stage with And most importantly my life with. I have truly been blessed and this week I am feeling most grateful for all the goodness and good people in my world.
