Romantic Heroine Fail
So Marissa is pretty perfect, yes? JR is obsessed with her. Bianca is head over heels in love with her. Maybe I've missed the scenes where she demonstrated having a single personality trait that would lead one to exhibit mild interest in her, let alone utter devotion; it's possible, since I have a habit of tuning out during her scenes.
But when I listen to JR and Bianca justify their love, well...
Bianca: [Marissa is] a woman who makes me laugh, and who makes me feel good about myself.
JR: She amazes me everyday. How much she loves AJ, how much she never lets anything get in the way of what she wants.
Her most sterling qualities are: (1) isn't mean (2) loves her son (3) is obnoxious in her single-minded pursuit of what she wants? Like, why not just have Bianca say "I love her because the writers say she is awesome?" That would be something else she shares with her twin!
Much more to come this weekend, about Kendall and Griffin, and Susan Lucci's epic performance as Erica and Jane. It's been a crazy few weeks--I have started about a million All My Children and General Hospital and--are you sitting? I hope you're sitting. And, for good measure, not eating anything, lest you choke--Days Of Our Lives (I KNOW! A Days post on Serial Drama! I mean, a hypothetical, anticipated Days post on Serial Drama which, still, was a good reason for me to warn you to sit down and stop eating! You could have choked or fallen down and got a concussion, and I'd feel super guilty) posts this week and then got distracted by all sorts of real life things and the haunting malaise that comes with 98 degree temperatures, so...I'm a deadbeat blogger right now, basically, and I owe you huge posts for all of these shows.
