Carly hated Robin long before she ever revealed Michael's paternity, probably because she was in Carly's way. Those of us who were subjected to the never-ending torture that was Cottage Hell can attest to what a shrew Carly was. Never mind Robin had helped raise Michael while Carly was away melting down, Carly is not a creature who does grateful. It was perplexing that Carly was so ugly to Robin when Robin was keeping her big secret; then again Carly has never been accused of being very bright. I couldn't stand Robin, Carly or Jason, who was the biggest weenie ever for letting himself be manipulated in that story. There were no good guys in Cottage Hell. When Robin finally spilled to AJ, that was the only time I ever liked her. Yes! I only wished she had thrown Carly, Jason and Michael out on their butts a long time before the reveal and saved us all that time and frustration.
I wouldn't have as much of a problem with the great whitewashed if they weren't so ridiculously hypocritical. Carly and Sam dragging Elizabeth for lying is the equivalent of Jocelyn Wildenstein dragging someone for having cosmetic surgery.
I don't know when GH became hypocrite central, but there's been quite an epidemic on the show. Carly, Sam, Monica and Alexis are all raving hypocrites (just naming a few GH women off the top of my head). They should be slinking around hoping no one notices instead of acting like they own any moral high ground.
Sonny has been known to give morality lectures, which pretty wins him the biggest hypocrite in the world prize. I have nearly choked at some of the silliness that comes out of his mouth.
When Jason covered for Courtney when she got high and then got behind the wheel of a car, he apparently forgot how he ranted at the Qs for covering for AJ.
Yeah, lots of it going around.

Oh man, this is sad. I loved David Canary, and AMC went downhill fast without him. I'm wondering if he had Alzheimer's, which would explain the lack of publicity. The family was able to have the private service they had planned, before announcing his death.
I never checked to see what caused the skin color issue, but it could have been any of a number of things. It probably wasn't anything serious or harmful, and I only mentioned it because it probably scared the actors away from selling consumer products via MLM networks.
No, Burton dropped out of Monavie around the time the MLM had some very serious legal and internal business problems, and there was a resulting shakeup. There are far fewer distributors involved although some are still making money selling it. At one time they had a major online presence, and their website showed their various sales levels. That information is closed off now, but the last time I was able to look, Michael Saucedo (Becky Herbst's husband) was listed at the $1 million level. I didn't see any of the other GH people who had been involved. Several of them, especially the Cheetwood brothers and Burton, used what they learned from Monavie and created or were involved in MLM campaigns for other products but I don't know that they're involved in any of that now. They all made a ton of money from Monavie so they may not need to work very hard now. The last time I paid any attention, they were using Burton as their spokesperson to hawk some kind of supplement for body builders that turned its users a rich golden color. It was taken off the market and all they seem to have lowered their online presence.
Racism at this level would get you a swift kick in the pants. Sexism (hopefully) would not go unremarked. Apparently ageism is alive and well on SON. Actually, I would enjoy seeing most of those people (excluding Victor who has been overexposed with inappropriate love partners) having love scenes. You can go make yourself something to drink if you don't like it, as I often do when watching Y&R.
