As 2015 comes to a close, we took a look back with our annual list of the Best and Worst in Soaps!
As it does every year, On-Air On-Soaps take this opportunity to pay tribute to the tremendous work of the talented men and women in front of the camera and behind the scenes, whose tireless efforts in the grind of producing and acting in this genre’s format is always astounding, and to be admired for its sheer volume of material that is churned out in such shorter order, and the caliber of it! But of course, in addition to naming the best moments and performances of the year, there were several not so stellar moments, characters, storylines, and more that get the dubious honor of some of the “Worst’s”!
So with that said; we give you our Best and Worst in Soaps 2015! As you will read, we try to dissect it all in our look back at the year through our various categories. Now, while we know many of you have your own picks and choices, and may disagree or agree with our picks, we encourage you to let us know your thoughts as well. And most of all, respect everyone’s opinions, as you wish them to respect yours.
Finally, we want to wish our wonderful community of site visitors and fans, a healthy, prosperous, and festive New Year! It is all of you with your unbridled passion and devotion to the soaps genre itself, who root for the characters and performers you love, that make this such a special and unique medium. So here we go … we reveal the list of the Best and Worst in Soaps 2015!
SOAPMAKER OF THE YEAR
Brad Bell – The Bold and the Beautiful
When you bring in a social issue of our time, ethnic diversity, classic soapy tales, and numerous unexpected twists and surprises, it’s a good year. This executive producer and head writer continued to weave the story of Maya Avant (Karla Mosley) throughout 2015, and this story was more than just a one-note wonder. Interview with the honoree here!
Days of our Lives – (Aug through Dec)
Prior to August, DAYS was mostly unwatchable, but a much needed behind the scenes shake-up in the writing and producing departments, and a long term initiative that began to be executed to take viewers into the series golden anniversary and beyond, hit the right mark! With cant-miss-an-episode TV returning for the long-running NBC series, big returns, and some dark and heavy duty story turns, that made for many a controversial water cooler moment, Salem was on the map again from August till the end of this year and hopefully well into 2016.
The Bold and the Beautiful – (Jan through August)
Learning Maya was born as “Myron” in the soap bombshell of 2015 back in May, and her emotional nuptials with Rick (Jacob Young), where her father Julius (Obba Babatunde) confronts her, made this show powerful soap at its best. Late summer we had another shocker: a psychotic Aly (Ashlyn Pearce) in a battle with a crowbar with Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) hit her head and died! Earlier in the year, Brooke’s (Katherine Kelly Lang) battle with the bottle also made for an interesting beat.
MOST IMPROVED SOAP
Days of our Lives
This show had a total and badly needed re-haul, and it knew that it could not fail to deliver for its 50th anniversary. Measures were taken, and it paid-off.
BEST SOAP PRODUCTION VALUES
The Bold and the Beautiful
Still the soap that delivers montages, remotes, well-designed sets, and those fashion shows … while making everybody look bold and beautiful is at the top of their game.
MOST DISAPPOINTING SOAP
The Young and the Restless
Y&R boasts the biggest A-list cast in daytime. The performances continue to astound day to day, and when the show is good it’s daytime’s finest, but when it misses it leaves us bewildered at the choices in stories. Their disaster storylines while a signature of head writer and EP Chuck Pratt Jr. give us breathtaking sets, graphics and moments, the day to day can sometimes leave us desiring more.
MOST INCONSISTENT SOAP
You know we love our GH, but 2015 delivered both creative and engrossing episodes, or meandered about where it was very lackluster. Behind-the-scenes changes were part of the challenges the series faced.
BEST PRIMETIME SOAP
It was the biggest ratings success story in primetime in years for its first season, while taking a dip in its second go-round. Still, the Fox hip-hop music sudser has so much soapalicious drama going down each episode you need a scorecard to keep up. Take note daytime soaps!
BEST OVERALL PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR
Justin Hartley – The Young and the Restless
This was the year we finally got our long-awaited Adam reveal. Throughout 2015, navigating all the complexities of the black sheep of the Newman clan, trying not to be discovered of his true identity, while ultimately being found-out, and ultimately trying to bring down his father and his company, and rationalizing doing it for the love of his wife and son, showed why Hartley is at the top of his game.
Billy Flynn – Days of our Lives
Eric Braeden – The Young and the Restless
Anthony Geary – General Hospital
BEST OVERALL PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A LIMITED RUN
Peter Reckell – Days of our Lives
The work by Peter Reckell in his short, but powerful return to Days of our Lives left us all heartbroken. and wanting more. It was the finest work of his career. Peter’s ability to show raw emotion, simple and sweet, left America with a puddle of tears on the floor when Bo died.
BEST SINGLE PERFORMANCE MALE IN A STORYLINE
Anthony Geary – General Hospital
There was not a more masterful performance than the brilliant Geary in GH’s 52nd anniversary episode. It is there we learn the secret that caused Luke to be Fluke, who accidentally killed his mother, and murdered his father. Geary not only played Luke, but his father Tim in a performance that will be remembered in the annals of soaps.
Tyler Christopher – General Hospital
After his young son, Spencer, is badly burned in a fire at Wyndemere, Nikolas is overcome with emotion as he learns of his son’s condition, and later anguishes over Spencer when he is allowed to see him. Tyler reminded us all he is one of the finest actors on the soaps when given the material to shine.
BEST OVERALL PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS
Laura Wright – General Hospital
Wright wowed us continually through 2015. Whether it be her emotional turn a s Carly pleads with Jake to accept the evidence that he is her beloved friend Jason Morgan back from the dead, or playing Luke’s mother, Lena in the 52nd anniversary episode, and reprising it again in farewell scenes with Tony Geary … and not to mention the love story of CarSon and Carly being tough and loving mom to her kids … Laura was definitely an MVP.
Karla Mosley – The Bold and the Beautiful
Finola Hughes – General Hospital
Linsey Godfrey – The Bold and the Beautiful
BEST SINGLE PERFORMANCE FEMALE IN A STORYLINE
Finola Hughes – General Hospital
Anna is planning on heading to Glasgow, Scotland to give her beloved late Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan) the send off he would have wanted, and that she wants to give him with his ashes in tow. Her old friend Luke stops by to see her, and as she grieves over Duke, the two commiserate and say farewell. It was Hughes at her exquisite best.
Kimberly McCullough – General Hospital
In story, Robin sees Jason for the first time since his most recent brain injury and amensia, and with his newly reconstructed face. Their encounter happens on the same bridge that meant so much to their past and Robin’s future. McCullough captured the essence of their relationship, and Robin’s past in a simple, understated, and emotional way. It reminded viewers why she is a daytime treasure.
MOST RIVETING PERFORMANCE BY A DUO
Karla Mosley and Obba Babatunde – The Bold and the Beautiful – The Wedding showdown
This year it’s a father/daughter duo with a complicated past, and future at the top of our list. On Maya’s wedding day to Rick, her father Julius cannot accept who she has become, and what she is doing by marrying a Forrester. The performances by Mosley, and Babatunde were exceptional.
Franco and Kiki’s goodbye scene: Roger Howarth and Kristen Alderson – General Hospital
Kristen Alderson made the decision to exit GH as Kiki. Former GH scribe Ron Carlivati and his team wanted to pay homage to Alderson, and long time OLTL on-screen dad, Roger Howarth, who were now both on GH. In a touching a speech as Franco is in the hospital, and as Kiki said her goodbyes, Franco says to his almost bio-daughter: “You’ll find something that you love to do, and do it. And don’t ever marry a man unless you trust him. Most importantly, believe in yourself. I want you to have an OK life. I think you deserve that.” Alderson’s Kiki then says, “You don’t have to do this. I’m not saying goodbye forever.” To which Roger replies: “Maybe you are. So just in case … goodbye. You’ve been a gift to me. I won’t forget you.” Hankies!
BEST OVERALL PERFORMANCE BY A SUPPORTING ACTOR
Obba Babatunde’ – The Bold and the Beautiful
Acclaimed TV and Broadway star, Babatunde was the breakout star of B&B. His opinionated, and imperfect father to the Avant clan deserves an Emmy. He had to be the naysayer and speak for those in our country who cannot easily accept Maya’s difficult past and present.
Freddie Smith – Days of our Lives
Rob Scott Wilson – Days of our Lives
BEST OVERALL PERFORMANCE BY A SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Amelia Heinle – The Young and the Restless
As Victoria Newman, this two-time Daytime Emmy winner continued to show that no matter how central she is to the scene, or even if she is not the focus, it’s hard to keep your eyes off of her. Amelia’s gutsy and realistic, and not over-played performances continue to draw us in, whether it’s going toe-to-toe with her father, Victor, her half-brother Adam, or dealing with her messy relationship with Billy. We can’t wait to see Amelia work with Jason Thompson as the new Billy in 2016.
BEST PERFORMANCE IN A PRIMETIME SOAP — FEMALE
Taraji P. Henson – Empire
Cookie, Cookie, Cookie – what else can we say ya’ll? Oh, except take that Boo Boo Kitty! Ah, these character names!
BEST PERFORMANCE IN A PRIMETIME SOAP — MALE
Jonathan Jackson – Nashville
Jonathan Jackson’s Avery Barclay, as a confused single dad to a newborn, was touching, heartbreaking, and complex. Estranged from baby Cadence’s mother (played by Hayden Panettiere) his scenes were fraught with drama. And let’s not forget, we get to hear the guy sing, too!
Killing off Will Horton – Days of our Lives
To kill the legacy character of Will Horton by having him brutally murdered by the Necktie Serial Killer, instead of sending the character off the canvas if they wanted to reboot the character (that under the previous writing regime became an unrecognizable character in his actions), would have been the way to go. This sent a message to the LGBT community, and the viewers that caused a major negative backlash.
Will’s Funeral – Sonny sitting in the second row – Days of our Lives
You can’t fool a soap fan! During Sonny’s funeral, Will’s husband Sonny was relegated to the second row, while Will’s immediately family was in the front. Not cool!
MOST DISAPPOINTING DECISION
Michael Easton is killed off General Hospital
We knew Dr. Silas Clay never really caught fire when fan favorite Michael Easton was put into the position of having to play another character on GH, other than the unforgettable John McBain (due to the legal issues with Prospect Park and ABC). Still the analogy of seeing Easton’s Silas get a knife in the back spoke volumes. GH decided it was time to let Easton go. While you can argue that he was completely back-burnered with little to no story, and boxed into a corner, the fan outcry was palpable.
BEST PERFORMANCE IN A GUEST ARC FEMALE
Dee Wallace as Patricia Spencer – General Hospital
When GH announced Dee Wallace would play the role of Luke’s older sister, Patricia, it was a big get for the series. Dee delivered poignant performances in her part of keeping Luke’s long held secret that destroyed his life, until he was set free by remembering what he blocked out.
BEST PERFORMANCE INA GUEST ARC MALE
Jonathan Jackson – Lucky Spencer – General Hospital
The orders were strong: Get Lucky! As Tony Geary finished up his run, he wanted to work with his most favorite scene partner, five-time Daytime Emmy winner, Jonathan Jackson. The father and son scenes the two shared one last time had us all reaching for the hankies, and then some.
WORST PERFORMANCE IN A GUEST ROLE
Frank Runyeon – Angel – The Young and the Restless
While we loved Frank Runyeon on As the World Turns as Steve Andropoulos, his return to soaps as an angel/therapist after Nikki’s accident fell flat.
BEST PERFORMANCE BY A YOUNGER ACTOR IN GUEST APPEARANCE
Joey Luthman – Young Luke Spencer – 52nd Anniversary episode – General Hospital
You know you have done something right, when everyone is asking, “Who was that kid? He was so good!” Well, that young man is Joey Luthman, and he emulated and played a young Luke Spencer to the tee in the episode.
BEST CHILD PERFORMER
Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) – General Hospital
When Patrick and Emma were on the screen in 2015, or Emma in scenes by herself, GH fans go gaga for the young girl. She nailed this honor though her recent star turn when she cries for her mommy, after Patrick and Sam’s relationship implodes.
BEST NEWCOMER MALE
Robert Palmer Watkins – General Hospital
It has been years since Dillon Quartermaine had been on the GH canvas, but Watkins has retained, in a more adult manner, the same charm that Scott Clifton brought to the role. Watkins is likeable on screen and off and someone to watch in the years to come.
BEST NEWCOMER FEMALE
Hira Ambrosino – Days of our Lives
Where is Tori Narita, anyway? When we first met her earlier in the year, she struggled to accept her son Paul being gay, although as it turns out, she knew deep down all of the time. Then we learn she had a past with John Black, and it turns out Paul is their son. Ambrosino is a talented actress we would like to see more of.
Pierson Fode – The Bold and the Beautiful
Fode replaces Adam Gregory in the role, and while maintaining Thomas’ lothario ways; he also brings some fire, and depth into the role and made this Forrester offspring interesting!
Vivian Jovanni – Days of our Lives
When DAYS decided to SORAS all of the main characters’ children, it forced little Lauren Boles, who was a Hope Williams in the making, off the canvas for teen Vivian Jovanni. Thus far, it’s not working for us.
BEST ENSEMBLE PERFORMANCE BY A CAST:
Salem finds out Will has been murdered!
After Will’s horrific demise at the hands of the Necktie Serial Killer, one by one the Hortons, Kiriakis, and Will’s friends learn of his death from: Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), Freddie Smith (Sonny), Deidre Hall (Marlena), Alison Sweeney (Sami), Galen Gering (Rafe), John Aniston (Victor) and the list goes on. It provided riveting performances and DAYS fans watched in shock and despair.
James Read – Clyde Weston – Days of our Lives
Clyde went from a character we despised to digging him in his final scene. It showed how good James Read is when Clyde learned that his son Ben is the Necktie Serial Killer, and vowed to take that information to the grave him as he was extradited from Salem to Florida for his crimes.
Constance Towers – General Hospital
She’s alive, she’s dead. She’s alive, she’s dead. Whether you can’t remember just what state Helena Cassadine is in, every time Constance Towers popped up through 2015 she spewed her venom on the poor citizens of Port Charles. How about that curse on Sam?
Ian Ward, The Young and the Restless
Make it stop! While Ray Wise is such an exceptional actor, we would like some of the villainess activities in Genoa City to turn out to be from the machinations of someone other than Ian Ward, who is revealed to be behind it.
Luke and Bobbie Spencer – General Hospital
Thank goodness they gave Jackie Zeman a farewell scene with Tony Geary, and it was well worth it. Played exceptionally by both actors, we were left in a puddle of tears, once again.
Caroline’s toast to the late Bo at Thanksgiving – Days of our Lives
How sad. The Bradys just days after their beloved Bo passes away try to have Thanksgiving. It’s a somber moment. Caroline tries her best to hold it together missing her son, and delivering a touching speech about her son as everyone toasts to Bo. McCay was splendid.
MOST FRUSTRATING EXIT
Anthony Geary as Luke Spencer – General Hospital
After all the hype, all the goodbyes, it was Tony Geary’s last episode. In it, Luke bonds with Sonny on the pier of Port Charles, and basically passes the torch to Maurice Benard (Sonny), and walks into the fog with a nod to the camera. Problem was: viewers were anticipating a montage of clips, a moment between Luke and Laura, or something else entirely. But as was revealed, must of that was scratched via Geary. We wanted to have a good cry seeing the most iconic actor and character leave our genre, but instead many fans were left scratching their heads!
BEST TEARJERKER EPISODE
Bo Dies after he recalls his life with Hope – Days of our Lives
Bo and Hope reminisce on their ionic love story complete with vintage clips, shortly before Bo dies in Hope’s arm. Brilliantly produced, scripted, and performed by Peter Reckell, and Kristian Alfonso.
BEST STANDALONE EPISODE
52nd Anniversary Episode – General Hospital
The acting, the production, the writing, the editing – all of the values of this show should be acknowledged come Emmy time. The use of black and white to color to tell the story, the use of GH history of weaving in April 1st as the key day in Luke’s life, the use of Laura Wright as Luke’s mother, and Tony Geary’s brilliant performance make this one exquisite piece of television.
BEST EPISODE AND BEST REVEAL
The Adam Reveal – The Young and the Restless
Y&R was firing on all cylinders the day Adam’s identity was exposed, and the aftermath. The episode, where different people confront the guy for his duplicity including Adam’s father Victor, and his archrival Billy, among others characters was executed perfectly. GH should take note on how this reveal worked far greater than the Jason reveal. Jason needs to remember who he is, and connect with people to make it more dramatic and effective. Kudos to the writing, producing and top notch cast here led by Justin Hartley, Eric Braeden and Peter Bergman!
The story of Maya Avant after being revealed as transgender – The Bold and the Beautiful
Karla Mosley (Maya) was given material to shine – she took it and ran with it, B&B took us on a journey of acceptance in a story that became so impeccably timed with Catilyn Jenner’s real life announcement as the transgender community gained attention worldwide.
Serena and the elephant statue – Days of our Lives
Watching OLTL favorite Melissa Archer as Serena stand there in a room holding, or searching for an elephant statute for months on end, was absolutely a snoozer. When the plot revealed to be about blood diamonds hidden in one of two elephant statues, and one that Eric Brady might have, this once viable option for a love interest for the former priest had no where to go, but with a necktie strangling her neck!
Scooby-Doo Murders Continued – The Young and the Restless
This muddled tale started with no key characters being killed; for it was Austin and Courtney who were murdered. T he story continued into May, when Fen returned to say he spiked everyone’s punch at the Valentine’s party. Later this all turns out to be tied in with Faux Jack (Marco), and Detective Harding who is revealed as the murderer. And we liked Chris McKenna (Harding) and wanted him around Genoa City for much longer.
MOST EMOTIONAL STORYLINE
Bo is dying – Days of our Lives
The riveting performances of Stephen Nichols, Mary Beth Evans, Peter Reckell, Kristian Alfonso, and Peggy McCay drove this centerpiece of the DAYS 50th anniversary. It was a story told with such heart in short order. The final scenes of the iconic Reckell with each of them, left the cast noticeably touched, as they not only bid farewell to their longtime time castmate, but grieved the loss of Bo. Interview with actors for honors here!
MOST SHOCKING STORYLINE
The Necktie Serial Killer- Days of our Lives
Ben, being the Necktie Serial Killer was one thing, but the grizzly murders and the darkness that enveloped this story was filled with shocking unsettling moments including: the murder of Will Horton, kidnapping a pregnant Abby and tying her up, and including that bloody fight between Ben and Chad. However, it made it “You can’t look away TV”. It also made Billy Flynn, the younger leading man of DAYS, capable of great depth and emotion whether it be Chad fighting for the woman he loves, Abby or whatever comes his way.
Days of our Lives – Josh Griffith and Dena Higley
The Bold and the Beautiful – Brad Bell
Griffith and Higley rejuvenated DAYS, even though some decisions may have been unpopular, it opened up the show and made it the series a you-need-to-watch-every-day, not just once a month soap viewing, or you will miss up. As for Bell, the transgender storyline spoke volumes to his writing team’s commitment to tackle a hot button social issue of our time.
Lucas tells Brad he loves him at Nurses station – General Hospital
Sweet! Lucas, who would not say his feelings out loud to Brad, jumps on the 7th floor nurses station desk, and tells Brad he loves him in front of the hospital staff and patients who happened by. It was a hankie-filled moment fans were waiting for. Now the question is: what is the pick up of the story since the declaration? What ever happened to Rosalie, Brad’s wife?
MOST PREPOSTEROUS PLOT TWISTS
Sage’s baby being stolen and given to Sharon, who is confused if she has given birth, thanks to the machinations of Dr. Anderson drugging her – The Young and the Restless
Marco and Jack doppelganger story – The Young and the Restless
We have seen stolen babies permeate daytime soaps in the past – where one mother grieves the loss of a child, only to have had it sold, or kidnapped, and given to someone else. This tale involving Sage and Nick, and Sharon and Dylan, is one of our least favorite stories of the year.
The issue with the Jack and Marco doppelganger story is that one was the rich and spoiled Jack Abbott, and the other was supposed to be a Peruvian drug lord. Peter Bergman was fantastic, as usual, but the rest of this plot twist left us confused and wanting it to be over.
MOST UNEXPLAINED STORY
Little Jake returns alive and is reunited with Elizabeth! – General Hospital
So, did we fully understand how Helena switched kids in the hospital, and the kidney transplants, etc? Or, How Jake was alive all these years on Cassadine Island?
MOST SHOCKING TWIST
Maya is “Myron” – The Bold and the Beautiful
One of the greatest soap twists in history! Maya Avant was born a man. Her sister Nicole came to town and mentioned Maya’s past as her brother named Myron! Mainstream and LGBT media went Cray Cray for this one!
Aly’s Death –The Bold and the Beautiful
We did not see this one coming! We thought an unhinged Aly had some more time left on the planet, but she ends up killed in a fight with her nemesis, accidental serial killer. Steffy!
Stephen Nichols – Days of our Lives
Patch is back, and it wasn’t for sure a short visit, but he’s here to stay! Engrossed in major story with Kayla, Ava, and his son Joey, Nichols delivered performances that continue to be heartfelt and memorable, starting with Bo’s death and the aftermath.
BEST RETURN TO DAYTIME
Michael E. Knight – Simon Neville – The Young and the Restless
Yes, Knight’s role as Dr. Simon Neville may be a bit unusual and quirky, but who cares? Seeing Michael Knight on our daytime screens again is worth it after decades of the Tad the Cad on AMC.
Eileen Davidson as Kristen DiMera – Days of our Lives
Stacy Haiduk as Patty Williams – The Young and the Restless
The rushed story of Theresa getting her baby back from a vengeful Kristen, and Patty making ‘nice-nice’ with Sharon and then ultimately Ian, just weren’t what we hoped would be served up by these dynamic ladies. They deserved better!
MOST REVIVED CHARACTER:
Ben Weston – Days of our Lives
After being a nice guy with a temper, Ben Weston was turned into a deeply troubled young man with deep issues stemming from his childhood, and his jealousy. Thus a serial killer was born. Rob Scott Wilson demanded our attention, and got it in his eerie performances.
MOST RUINED CHARACTER MALE
Aiden Jennings – Days of our Lives
DAYS fans were outraged that after investing in the love story of Haiden! Aiden, being the most viable love interest for Hope since Bo left the canvas, turned out to be a wannabe bride killer! Thus, setting the stage for Cosgrove to be written off the show.
MOST RUINED CHARACTER FEMALE
Avery Clark – The Young and the Restless
Poor Jessica Collins! The mighty actress’ character was written all over the place, and after Avery was raped, Collins tried to sell this story as well as she could. Ultimately, fans were not happy, and Collins left the show.
Rick and Maya, The Bold and the Beautiful
A good tale to tell on daytime: Even after disclosing that she was a born a man, Rick did not throw her out the front door. In fact, they worked through it and it solidified their love. Rick accepted Maya for who she is today … the woman she has always wanted to be.
MOST BORING COUPLE
Sharon and Dylan, Nick and Sage & Stitch and Abby – The Young and the Restless
Take your pick: These three couples all feel forced and somewhat temporary. We are not sure if that is the intent, but their love stories are not making us root for them. Not good.
BIGGEST WASTE OF TALENT – FEMALE
Melissa Archer – Days of our Lives
The fiery redhead, who wowed us Natalie Buchanan on One Life to Live, was set to do it again on DAYS. Only the writers painted her into a corner in the ‘elephant statue’ storyline. It wasn’t until some final moments in scenes with Billy Flynn that she was able to create spark, and then they killed her off.
BIGGEST WASTE OF TALENT – MALE
Jason Thompson – General Hospital
With the writers not being able to find a viable story sans Robin for five-time Daytime Emmy nominee Thompson, who was relegated to the back-burner for most of the year, and it was noticeable to the fans. Upshot: He is now on Y&R.
WORST LOVE TRIANGLE
Devon/Hilary/Neil – The Young and the Restless
When will this end? We were rooting for Hevon!
MOST ILL-TIMED MEDIA QUOTE:
After his farewell Luke Spencer tour, and letting it be known he had no intent of ever coming back to GH after his final episode airs, a quote circulates from mainstream outlet’s that Anthony Geary said on a possible return: “If the story is interesting to me and it works out, I may come to the show for six weeks, or so.” Say what? Now that former head writer Ron Carlivati has been displaced, a person Geary slammed in the media, will this quote might actually come to fruition?
BIGGEST SOCIAL MEDIA FIRESTORM
GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) tweets her disagreement in real-time of the sentiments shared by Viola Davis on her Emmy-winning speech for her performance on How to Get Away with Murder. Nancy and the soaps certainly got a lot of coverage for this one.
The black wig used by Ava Jerome to fool everyone into believing she is Denice DeMuccio – General Hospital
A thick black wig! Tri-state area accent did not fool anyone that Denice was actually Ava Jerome. Maura West played it to the hilt, but the wig overstayed its welcome. We just wanted our magnificent Ava back!
