Delia seems much like Roxie…not sure if Delia of GH was this way in Ryan’s Hope…or if they molded her for OLTL fans into a Roxie now known as Delia. She seems confident they’ll be asking her back…fun!

When Ilene was on GH last year, she acted more like Delia with a bit of Roxy thrown into the mix in the Ryan’s Bar scenes but is definitely more like Roxy in the current storyline. It should be fun to see her again next week….I wish she could become a regular!

I think the only difference here would be her dynamic with her daughter. ON OLTL she loved Natalie (and Rex). Thus, her crazy, good-natured way of protecting them was specific to that.

I don’t see any warm fuzzies with her and Ava…though in both shows her maternal instincts kick in.

But ya…her overall loopiness is sooooo Roxie.

Shes a mix of OLTLs Roxy and Ryans Hopes Delia…and their physical resembalance is AMAZING…maybe Delia and Roxi are somehow related…maybe long lost twins!!!…lol

actually…let’s take that further!!! maybe Delia DOES have a twin…played by Ilene! Delia could eventually leave…and Roxie could move to Port Charles with Natalie and Rex!

I want both Delia and Roxie on the show…Ava’s secret weapon to drive Sonny nuts…lol

yes…that’d be fun but I doubt Ilene could pull double duty on an ongoing basis. I’m thinking one drops into town…the other leaves…etc…

andddddddd…it’s not gonna happen! 😉

I love Ilene and I think she definitely brings a new energy as Delia. I like the nod to ABC’s soap history by having her on the show from time to time. I have been watching Ryan’s Hope via Youtube and its nice that a great show from so long ago is not forgotten. Hope she gets to come back regularly.

I think that with the demise of so many soaps the remaining ones are trying to get much of the soap world somehow incorporated into the remaining ones. Perhaps to increase viewership…if they bring on more players…more fan favorites from shows-gone-by…the potentially bring in more eyes.

Interesting concept and a good strategy if that’s the case.

still frustrated by the inability to edit comments here!!! In my perfect lil well-written world I would have said…”the remaining ones incorporated into their shows.

ugg!
