That's just what her evil twin with amnesia wants you to think.

God I remember watching that when I was in middle school because of the evil Stefano was using mind control on her to keep her from her boyfriend and then there was the evil twin  imposter but she was an trailer park trash obsessed Elvis fan had a baby named little Elvis. I realized she was okay as an actress but sometimes I would just laugh at the cheesy crappy easily written out in a day stories.

She really is one of the classiest actresses out there with her fan base.

When I used to work in broadcast television - we always labeled that show as Drool, cause that's what you did after watching it daily

She's left and returned before.  She will again.

It's kinda weird how soap operas are like their own little entertainment industry, simultaneously incredibly popular and yet decidedly removed from mainstream pop culture. I don't watch most TV shows, but I know a little something about most of them just through cultural osmosis. I've never seen a single episode of The Big Bang Theory, or Homeland, or The Handmaid's Tale, or Breaking Bad, but I could tell you a little bit about who stars in it and what it's about. But this actress has been on that show for 30 years, and I've never seen or heard of her or her character before. The show has probably been on for twice that long, and I have absolutely no idea what it's about. Weird.

There are all sorts of things like that in this world.

A former co-worker on the other side of the state was really into dogs.  Had a side hustle training jobs, bought a house with the intention of doing on-site training and overnight kenneling.  And she did dog agility stuff.

She had a competition one weekend not far from me, and I went for a couple of hours to watch it.

It's a big hobby.  Big.  There are two different sanctioning bodies, with all the politics that entails.  There are old warehouses and tennis barns all over the place that have been converted into dog agility facilities.  Companies manufacture the various steeplechase and teeter-totter things.  Companies churn out ribbons and trophies.  People spend every weekend driving 4 hours each way, with 2 or 3 dogs in the back of the car, to get to a show somewhere in their region.  And spend Tuesday and Thursday nights at their local training center taking classes.

But if you hadn't seen a YouTube clip from the Westminster dog show, you'd never know that it existed.

Ah, what is considered the best romance in the history of daytime television...which started with Luke raping Laura.

Ah, Port Chuckles. A town which, if real, would outsell the world per capita in Valtrex and Haldol prescriptions. The hospital shouldn't be the focus of the show- the free clinic down by the docks sees way more traffic.

The Helena Cassadine days were delightful for the sheer WTFery.

The Prometheus Disk and "I AM GRANT PUTNAM" were insane as well.

I was a latch-key kid and it came on right as I got home. Playing the background while I did my homework provided the illusion of company. Between the conversations, arguments, fist fights and occasional explosions, it was like the family was right there with me.

I haven't watched a soap since General Hospital for a short time in college in 1974, and yet I feel like I am aware of the names of most of the soaps, and the main actors, just from standing in the checkout line at the grocery store and being confronted with Soap Opera Digest and the other soap magazines.

I always assumed that Eric Braden was farking the editors of Soap Opera Digest since he was on every cover for at least a decade.

NotTooLittleRichard: In a row?

She left the show for two years in 1987 and returned briefly from April to July 1990, which culminated with the entire town of Salem believing that Hope had died. She returned again in 1994 as Gina, an amnesiac...


So, no.

I for one will not miss Princess Gina.

Actually, it seems like the people who love them *really* love them, but they're almost gone.  There are 2 people in my family who love soaps (and yes, they're both older women).  One watches this and the other watches GH and I think there are only 1 or 2 others still on the air, if that.  All 3 networks used to run these all day.

My grandmother still gets Soap Opera Digest, now a magazine that tries to milk content from just 3 shows, it looks like.  And the few shows that are still on are constantly on the verge of extinction.  I think in another 10 years, there may not be any left.  Even now, their fans are like the dedicated but relatively small group of fans who are passionate about, say, Lucifer.  They used to be a third of the women in America it seemed like
