Viewing Single Post From: Melissa Reeves Sony Interview

Okay, so I'm going to try to take a positive look at this interview, because, imo, although it's still pretty bad, it's not as bad as the interviews MR was giving last fall. If you squint, you can almost see her backing off the effusive pro-Dannifer stance she took last time. For example, we might interpret her reference to loss -- i.e., the loss of her grandmother Alice -- as maybe her way of saying that's the primary reason Jennifer got involved with Daniel in the first place.

Anyway, here are a few positives I found in this article.

-- she didn't refer to Daniel saving Jennifer's life -- something she constantly did in past interviews.
-- she didn't actually compare Dannifer to Tom and Alice, she said that Jennifer was reminded of her entire family. Well, now that could include comparisons to Mike and Robin (or Mike and April or Mike and Carrie) or Bill and just about anybody. None of those pairings was enduring and fairy-tale like. (I still don't like that she waxes poetic about Daniel as a doctor, but she's not the only one on the show with a blind spot about his unethical and sleazy proclivities.)
-- perhaps most intriguing, MR said, "Jennifer feels that, yeah, this could be someone, because of their brokenness together, that they could really relate to one another." Their brokeness together? Yep, that's romantic and a basis for a strong and lasting relationship.

As for the rest of the article, it was written in an overly dramatic way. And so much of the opinion of the author was in the text that I found it difficult at times to discern when the author was opining and when MR was talking.

In all, this was a much more pro-Jennifer article than a pro-Dannifer or pro-any-Jennifer-pairing article than others we saw last Fall.
