JILL & JOHN ABBOTT, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS
Jill married John Abbott for love and money, but neither enticement kept her out of stepson Jack's bed. Vindictive Katherine Chancellor savored the opportunity to torment Jill, her long-time nemesis, with pictures of Mrs. Abbott in compromising positions with Jack. Kay dealt the death blow to the Abbott marriage by sending the photos to John. Making the split even messier, an unrepentant Jill was not content to strip her estranged husband of his dignity -- she wanted his fortune as well!
DORIAN & HERB CALLISON, ONE LIFE TO LIVE
ONE LIFE TO LIVE's Dorian and Herb truly gave new meaning to the term "friendly divorce" when, stranded in an elevator following the finalization of their divorce, the pair made love. Trapped together for hours, Dorian and Herb relived the hurt, anger, bitterness, love, and humor which had characterized their marriage. The poignant writing, combined with Robin Strasser (Dorian) and Anthony Call's (Herb) excellent performances, made it entirely plausible that these two battle weary warriors could come together for a brief moment of madness and love at a time when both thought all their good feelings for one another had died. And though following the episode, Dorian and Herb went on with their separate lives, they shared one more warm memory -- something to stack up against the ugly ones.
JACK & AVA FORBES, LOVING
It was ghastly, daahlings. My, my some dirty linen certainly got aired as Jack & Ava Forbes on LOVING went to the divorce court; he to dissolve their rather tawdry little union and she to make sure that she remained a member of Corinth's first family, the Aldens. Though Stacey denied everything, everyone just knew that she had been carrying on with Jack and well, Ava's go-for-the-jugular lawyer made mincemeat out of her lies. Then there was Ava who gave the performance of her life as the poor, sweet put-upon wife. Jack, too, put on a good show as he bravely persisted in (despite his guilt) being rigteously indignent. It was loads of fun watching Jack and Ava yell all sorts of nasty little things back and forth at each other. And when it was all over, you'll never guess what happened: The judge refused to grant them a divorce!
