MOST SURPRISING COUPLE|
NEIL AND VICTORIA, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS
When Victoria Rowell left the role of Drucilla, it could have spelled l-i-m-b-o for her co-star Kristoff St. John (Neil). Instead, Y&R threw Neil into his work, which put him in close proximity to Victoria, who had just split from her own spouse, Cole. They fell in love. It was fun to watch Neil get all nervous around Vicky's dad, Victor, who is the Newman in Newman Enterprises. It was fun to watch Olivia try to protect her sister's turf, even though Dru seems gone for good. But what was most fun - refreshing, actually - was watching this romance unfold with no attention paid to the skin colors of this pair. Yes, he's black, she's white - so what? Many fans were more troubled by Neil falling for another career woman after the debacle with workaholic Dru than they were by him dating someone who didn't look like him. And that was the best surprise of all.
