Darlene is awesome in many ways but one thing I particularly appreciate while rewatching is the skill in her delivering these long monologues with a lot of complicated well-written turns of phrases they liked to write for Sally.
I don't know why they wrote her so many monologues but it is striking and boy did she deliver them flawlessly. From a purely technical pov, gotta admire that skill, on top of the acting talent of course.
I must admit, I loved them too.
I like Crystal! Her talking points reminded me a little of Tiffany. I like her style, too -- more NY than LA.
Rinna is so fake-schmoozey. She seems to be mentally noting Crystal's idiosyncrasies... for future usage. Also she is morphing into LVP in her VT.
Kyle humble-bragging about her favorite subject -- herself. 'People always tell me I look too young to have a 31 yr old daughter!'
There are no definitive comparison between soaps that I can find but looking at legendary long-time characters, Victor's 14 so far is the male record (Adam Chandler was 13), at least among the long-running characters I could think of as candidates.
Record-holder so far, to noone's surprise, is B&B's Brooke who has been married 15 times but only to 7 men (she has married Ridge eight times which IS the record I can find of repeats). Erica Kane was "only" 11 times to 9 men
