Honestly Jean is about to celebrate 25 years in daytime. She has been head writer for OLTL, AW, ATWT,YR and now GH. So many stories she has crafted. I would say her best storyline work was the bianca lesbian storyline on amc. The scenes she wrote between Lucci and Reigal were fabulous. What was your favorite Jean P storyline of 25 years? So many to choose from

Jeanine P didn't write Bianca's coming out. That was the legendary Agnes Nixon. Jeanine P destroyed Laura's personality. From likable rough around the edges street kid to Leo obsessed beyotch. Jeanine P badly killed off Gillian for no reason. Jeanine P also did the Libidozone mess. Everyone in town was horny yet they acted so tame. Jeanine P's ATWT was a snooze fest. Emily became a call girl. Alison a porn star hooked on crystal meth. A badly recast Meg was character assassinated as were many other characters.

Pissin' Aunty also killed off ATWT's Bryant and Rose (as co-HW), Jennifer and Dusty for no reason.

Yes, Jean was headwriter of AW when it was cancelled, ATWT when it was cancelled; she was fired from YR after 12 months as head writer.  She was fired from AMC (and Agnes didn't protest); she was fired from OLTL as headwriter and remember she wasn't sole headwriter, she wasn't even part of a duo! ABC hired two other writers (Sloane and Laiman and they wrote by committee).

I met Jean at NYU during a soap writing course, before she was working on writing staffs; she clearly loved soaps but she's not a great headwriter. She probably was a mature, stabilizing force on Ron's GH and OLTL teams.

GH is messy right now; not inspired and parts are good but the whole is not quite working...

Never really thought much about this because back in the day I never bothered with knowing the writers, but seeing who Pissy wrote out on other shows that usually seems to be the time I tuned out at the time. Interesting .... I'm about a big a fan of hers as I am Higley. How does this person keep getting the gig? Does no one else truly not want it? I couldn't blame anyone who didn't want the job due to all of the interference.

Laura stopped being likeable in 1996.

i liked Laura #1. Then when Roscoe Born came on & Lauren Roman went off contract it didny make sense. Laura was the tie to Jim but she skips town.

 

Never liked Laura #2, Laura Allen is a good actress but it was Laura Kirk English in name only as Laura seemed to adopt a new personality depending on how the wind blew

It's a shame Laura had a lot of potential. Lorraine did a great job creating her. Jeanine P destroyed the character.
