I believe, with the exception of her affair with Colin while married to Victor, Nicole has only slept with one man (relationship) at a time.
I recall Nicole cheating on Victor with a lawyer or something several years back, as well. I can't remember his name, but I remember this really cheesy scene where we saw Nicole's leg hoisted up in front of the camera as she pulled her pantyhose back up while he watched her from across the room, LoL.
And that's the issue Nicole-fans need to understand and not take personally when people call the character of Nicole names that are... um... "less than chaste"
It's not so much that she's doing anything a lot of soap characters don't do (in fact, there are plenty of people on soaps who have gotten around). It's the way everyone at the show portrays her - case in point, the way the scene Kenny described was shot. They didn't have to shoot it that way, but they did.
I'm a big Nicole fan myself, and think Ari is doing a fantastic job. But I certainly also understand why people who think Nicole is trashier than most female soap characters who have gotten around. It's not so much a numbers game, as the way the show has presented her in their shots, their framing, their music, etc. in the past.
I have no problem accepting how Nicole was in the PAST but I do take exception to calling her names that no longer pertain to who she is now. I am equally annoyed by people that say "once a rapist always a rapist". Characters should be allowed to learn from their past mistakes, to grow and evolve without getting cornered in by previous bad writing.
Whatever Nicole was before it should not restrict her from becoming a better person/character.
