That's all. Very few people continue to call Jack a rapist. Does anyone call Sami a rapist? I don't think anyone calls Julie a slut anymore. No one calls Doug a con man anymore. (course, I guess youngsters don't remember that!) Steve had a very unsavory past when he first showed up. Billie has a good soul, but is weak when it comes to men, and she gets called that name (or did) a lot, too. Most characters who are considered interlopers do. I think many people still consider Nicole an interloper instead of a viable rootable character. It would be different if she was pimped or promoted as a heroine. For instance, Marlena's little tryst with John on the conference table. She was still married to Roman. You'll find TONS of arguments in favor of that tryst, even though, in reality, it was adultery and she could have been considered a slut had she not been touted as the heroine. And, in my defense, I'm using this as an example because there ARE people who were pissed off and turned off to Marlena because of this, and it's been a little matter of controversy in some parts. Unfortunately, since I've had huge viewing gaps in the past, my arsenal of examples are low.
But, I guess Nicole's turnaround hasn't been long enough for people to stop calling her names. I can see that. No matter what, though, I've always liked Nicole. I liked her sauce and wit and sardonic nature. And, often, I tend to root for the "underdog".
And, unfortunately, the spoilers aren't helping Nicole's character cause. And, down the road, it remains to be seen whether she's written as a viable match for EJ, or if she's just another catalyst for those friggin' "meant to be" couples.
