MOST ENTERTAINING DUO|
PHYLLIS AND DRUCILLA, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS
Love stories rule, but some of the most unforgettable relationships are loathe stories. The paragon is Phyllis and Drucilla. Their bon mots are delicious. (Dru: "I outrank you." Phyllis: "You are pretty rank.") Funny thing, these catty rivals don't hate each other; they just really know how to push one another's buttons because although they'd never admit it, they are so alike. Even in contrived circumstances (sharing an office, stuck in an elevator), the fab foes milk the set-up to great effect. They are not, however, cartoonish. The sassy lasses can set aside their differences during crises (when dealing with their teens or uniting to save their jobs). That just makes it even bettr when they resume hostilities. In a medium not known for comedy - they are called daytime dramas - watching Michelle Stafford (Phyllis) and Victoria Rowell (Drucilla) duke it out, literally and figuratively, is as heady as any soap romance.
