Everytime I rewatch those old episodes, I am reminded what gems Christine Tudor and Lisa Peluso were. Loving was low-rated and generally poorly regarded but it is a shame the broader soap community doesn't treasure them the way they do other leading ladies of defunct shows.
I am not going to lie here: I know this is being said mockingly and inferred to be awful (which, yes, probably would be). And I know people have a complicated relationship with later-years Carly. But boy is there a part of me who kinda sorta wonders what magic Maura West could have done with that kind of storyline.
Also, we mock what "would have been" but: Cleo.
