OK. Let's start with All My Children. Until this week, I thought there was nothing worse than seeing an overly-endowed woman wearing a low-cut blouse. Those who are blessed--or cursed, depending on how you look at it--with a large bust look like they were squeezed into a low-cut top and like they will poke an eye out if they step the wrong way. Then I saw how Kendall was dressed while pretending to be Carla Suarez this week. Her dress looked like it was cut nearly to her navel, but like there was nothing there to hold it up. Definitely not a flattering look. T hen again, maybe I am too judgmental because I could never look as good as Kendall Hart does on a bad day.
Since when does a cop get to pick and choose what crimes to investigate? I can't say that I am overly enthused about the Zoe character or her lifestyle, but that does not mean that her beating should be ignored. I suppose I can understand the chief of police passing the case on to a detective, rather than handling t himself. But for Derek, a man whose nephew was severely beaten a few years back for no reason other than being black, to just ignore a possible hate crime is ludicrous. I agree with his statement that Zoe tends to be an over-the-top drama queen, yet she was obviously beaten. Does he think she did that to herself?
Moving on to One Life to Live, why does the word "hypocrite" come to mind when I see Cristian Vega? he is jumping all over Jessica about what is happening between Jess and Nash. Yes, with Jess being married to another man, the relationship is wrong. But excuse me, wasn't Cris married to Jen Rappaport when he and Natalie fell in love? Whether he was physically unfaithful or not, allowing himself to fall in love with another woman was still cheating. Even more than that, I believe he left Jen to be with Nat. Hello, Kettle? Yeah, this is the Pot calling.
And what has happened to Evangeline? Cris gets mad, tells her off, storms out, and she cries all day long? and in her jammies, no less!!! Sure, we all have our bad days, but Vange is not the stay in your jammies and ball your eyes out over a man kind of lady. Not for a full day anyway.
Erica Kane, Blair Cramer, and Marty Saybrooke could all benefit from listening to General Hospital's Luke Spencer. Seeing three young men vie for the attention of his daughter left Luke with nothing to say other than, "It's her choice." Even when his wife accused him of bad parenting, Luke maintained that the decision on who to date is completely up to Lulu. He doesn't care if she chooses to date all three. As long as she makes the choice she is happy with, Luke is willing to give LuLu his full support. He may not be the most hands-on Dad, but giving his children his complete support makes Luke a better parent than most soap moms and dad.
