Anything with Adam(Y&R) torturing Ashley, including covering up her miscarriage,etc. makes me want to barf…. the stealing of Sharon’s baby after he delivered it is the ugliest moment I have seen in a long time. Oh, yes ,there are many more..UGH…

That’s some list. Although I feel you could have used AMC’s entire year for that list, lol. Pratt’s writing definitely should have been higher, maybe even #1.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that 2010’s list is harder to write meaning 1) that soaps are much better next year and 2) that Agnes Nixon and co. can get AMC back on track.

Thanks and Happy New Year!

Ethan turning out to be Luke’s son (instead of Robert’s) was definitely the worst for GH. It spit on two supercouples (Luke & Laura and Robert & Holly) and a great friendship (Luke & Robert). No wonder GH is doing so poorly in the ratings. GH has no respect for history.

ITA Ethan being Luke’s son instead of Robert and Holly as he should had been was the absolute worst use of history.Whoever dumb idea it was to make him Luke’s by spitting all over the king and queen of all daytime couples history Luke and Laura,and GH most romantic couple and love story Robert/Holly Scorpio shouldn’t be allow to give anymore idea better yet keep that person away from any storylines idea that person is lclearly lacking in the creativity dept.

And to think the #1 worst got me back into soap land this year after being away since ’96. The twins sl on ATWT sounded intriguing since they’d be interacting with my fave characters (Luke and Noah). It wasn’t that bad but oh, well, I still must thank them for getting me hooked on ATWT, not to mention other soaps (Y&R, AMC, OLTL). Gosh, I’d missed soaps!

Ethan being Luke’s son was the worst moment on GH this year. It was completely unbelievable and a mess of a story. Luke cheated on Laura with Holly? and the time line was so fuzzy it’s impossible to even figure out when it was supposed to happen because it didn’t fit with GH’s history. It trampled over Luke and Laura and Robert and Holly and there was no payoff. Ethan as a Spencer is boring. As a Scorpio- there was so much more potential. No wonder cancelled soaps have higher ratings than GH.

Anything concerning the Jason & Sam reunion. Totally unbelievable and contrived…they’re chemistry-free birth control for the soul…

Couldn’t agree MORE. THAT was the absolute WORST Story line of the year and unbelievable that the crap is still going on. Nasty is what that is.

Leaving Jeffrey out chasing Edmund while grieving widow Reva turns to Josh at the Lighthouse, with Jeffrey’s little boy in tow, has Ellen Wheelers messy fingerprints all over it. What a totally disappointing and contrived ending to one of the gems in daytime, Guiding Light. I’m not surprised that Ellen nor Jeffrey’s fate made the worst list because THEY DESERVED TO BE THERE! Talk about out of touch with the fans.

My problem is with Ashley Jones on B&B. She is a no-talent wannabe actress that brings down every other character she is paired with. Just how many “Worst” categories can she be elected to before DumbBell gets it into his head to be rid of her? A totally unsavory character in every way.

Katie

While I like AJ, I find Bridget to be the most useless character on the BB. The Madame X line had to be the dumbest of last year. And to make it worse, in doing that SL to reunite the WORSE couple of 2005, 2006 and 2008, Nick and Bridget, they dumbed down the character of Nick to do it. I wish Bell would take Nick out of the kiddie pool and put him back with the grown-ups and put Bridget with a more age appropriate man like Owen, so they would not have to do these dumb SL’s in order to try and “put them across”.

Bonnie

James has Brooke and Taylor MUDWRESTLE, give each other massages–while he seemed to leer watching them. This was supposed to make them friends to make Ridge’s life easier. It was like some guy’s sick fantasy.

I whole-heartedly agree on all Bold misses of last year.I think you were too kind to Bells mess of a (once) good show.The biggest fiasco is that Nick Marone is still with Bridget Forrester.Jack Wagner is so underused and stuck in the kiddie pool with Ashley Jones,an actress who´s character Bridget belongs with the younger set,and at Forrester Creations,not Jackie M “designing”, it´s not even funny.Other embarassing “storylines” were the Donna&Pam frienship complete with having them make a fool of themselves on a game show and Jack Wagner was further humilitated at same game show in a “special” episode with a less than skilled actress at his side.My hopes for B&B in 2010 is that Nick Marone once again is front-and-center and in an adult storyline,prefrebly with powerhouse actress Sarah Brown and her Sandy character.Any adult character in Nicks storyline would be perfered acctually,so he no longer have to share screen with his former (immature)step daguhter,Bridget Forrester.Ever.

Ethan as Luke’s son was just a horrible, horrible decision. He was meant to be Robert and Holly’s and that would’ve been brilliant and it would’ve fit perfectly into the show’s already established history. Had they gone with Robert and Holly as the parents I have no doubt this would’ve been one of the best plot points of 2009. Instead they made the totally wrong choice and every magazine and website has voted it amongst the worst things of 2009. Guess what, GH—it’s never too late to fix your mistake ! Change Ethan’s paternity and make things right.

Anne

I actually loved the Zac and Zoe storyline! I don’t watch anything besides ATWT so I can’t really say anything about the other moments, but thw twins couldn’t have been the worse! I thought their interaction was great, also with Luke and Noah..Adam suddenly disappearing was much worse if you’re asking me..

Kelly Ripa Reveals How Her Son Chose NYU Due To The Consuelos Connection To Former Soap EP/ Director, Chris Goutman

Last week on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the former star of All My Children, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) told Ryan Seacrest how a chance meeting when her son, Michael was deciding where to go to college; between her, Michael, and Chris Goutman (Ex-Executive Producer As the World Turns and former director, All My Children) changed the course of Michael’s creative and academic path.

Turns out that Goutman is now working over at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts as an assistant professor and academic director.

During their banter on the talk show, Kelly revealed that Goutman directed the screen-test that landed Mark Consuelos the role of Mateo on All My Children, and thus how Ripa met her real-live enduring lovematch.

Ripa explained that Michael was waiting for a sign as to which college to go to as he liked most of the places he saw.  Then came the sign as Ripa explained to Seacrest: “We’re walking down the hallway and I hear a voice I know say, ‘Consuelos!’ “He turns around and I see Chris Goutman, who was our director at All My Children … I worked with him for 11 years.”

Ripa says Chris then expressed to Michael: “You have to come here, because I am the reason you literally exist.”

Ripa is reportedly also working on a film for the class, as well.  Watch what Kelly shared below.
