In every soap, a villain has to be a given, because let’s face it, without one, storylines would get boring, romance would soon fall by the wayside, and we’d be left with nothing.

EricMartsolf2008

I know that I’ve written in the past about Brady and his entourage of women as of late, but I think given the new storylines he is getting involved with, it’s only fair to bring him up again, with a new angle of course. It still amazes me that no matter how much his family […]
