I understand and agree she CAN be a better person. My point is, I've never seen her even struggling to want to be a better person at all. She's totally fine with being selfish and using people to get what she wants.

Kyrai - I don't see how your views toward Nicole would relate to your views toward Sami either. I was trying to relate what you were saying to how I feel about Sami sometimes, and about how some characters seem to gloss over any awful past history together in favor of a renewed friendship...maybe just to fit the story.
You had also asked why you should root for Nicole. I am not telling you why, I am just explaining my reasoning for overlooking some of Nicole's antics because of her troubled past. There is alot of talk on other boards about Nicole being a trashy, manipulative whore, but her abuse and exploitation as a teen lead me to a more sympathetic view towards her. You carry that stuff with you for awhile, and it sometimes directly/indirectly continues to influence your life.
However, as a grown woman who was a good businesswoman, I would hope that she could grow out of the "marrying for money" and look towards a means of self support and reliance. Maybe with Victor's money gone, she will find a job with Titan (ironic!). It would be great to see a self supporting young woman on that show...even if she is knocked up with EJ's kid.
great assessment, luvpumpkns.
IF/when she meets someone who makes her realize there is more to life than using people, and she would like to be a better person, then maybe I'd like her and root for her romantically. Right now, I don't.
