I hate Nicole and have not a shred of pity for her character, but I admit the actress that plays her is very good. However, I hate the bitch. And I hate looking at her every day. And here is a tip for the hairstylist that is doing her hair. It looks like a toddler used a curling iron on Nicole. She looks like a mental patient that curled her hair for an imaginary visitor. Cut the crap! Go back to beauty school , you hack.
p.s. I wonder if nicole will fondle her fake tummy 24/7 like she did when she was pregnant. So freaking annoying. Method-acting pompous tramp.
Tell us how you really feel. :D

For all you Nicole lovers... from Prevuze

Top 10 Reasons Why Nicole Walker Is NOT A Slut
Well, we certainly caused a stir earlier this week when we called Nicole Walker a slut. The reaction from some of our readers was direct, swift and very negative. It gave me pause and as I reflected I regretted the way I had put that, but at least was thankful that I had edited out the part about her having greased panties. Anyway, we've thought this over very carefully and feel it's time for a rare Prevuze statement retraction.

I have to say I really shouldn't have used the term "slut" especially when referring to her beautiful relationship with EJ; one which as I fondly remember its tender beginning, always brings the sound of elevator music to mind for some reason.

So we would like to take this entire posting to remind our readers why our original statement in Thursday's edition is neither fair nor correct. To be succinct, and with apologies to David Letterman, we've compiled the following list of the top ten most compelling reasons why Nicole is not a slut:

10, "Slut" is so 'Nineties.' The new term is "slam hog."

9. Being paid $5 Million to marry Lucas was part of the Government Bailout.

8. When will people learn that having sex for money is NOT the definition of "slut?"

7. Her pre-nup with Victor specifically stated electrocution trumped annoying little sexual escapades.

6. The difference between porn and art is a fine line, or at least a Misty Circle.

5. A one-night-stand with Roman Brady doesn't count as sex.

4. Always remember... All porn stars are sluts, but not all sluts are porn stars. Oops... waitaminute... forget that one.

3. There is absolutely no truth to the rumor that she lived in a hotel room in order to save time.

2. According to the Penthouse Advisor, having had sex with Trent, Lucas, Victor, EJ, Roman, Colin, Brady, Eric, some schmuck named Jay and countless others in her porn films does not put her over the official "slut" threshold.

And... the number one reason Nicole Walker is NOT a slut...

1. Absolutely nowhere does the Bible specifically ban casual sex in an elevator.

While admitting no wrongdoing, Prevuze has officially released the following public apology:

We would like to formally apologize for calling Nicole Walker a slut. This statement was made in haste and without regard to the legions of sluts everywhere we might have insulted by throwing them into the same category as Nicole. We do, however stand by our characterization of Nicole as a "ho-bag."


So, you see, even Prevuze makes mistakes. Posted Image

I can't help but love Nicole and root for her and the funny thing is that I like her because of all of the terrible things in her past. I know what she has done but I don't hate her for them and I just don't have it in my heart to mock even a fictional character for being in porn as a CHILD when she was drugged and forced into it by her father and just miscarried a baby she loved and wanted. :shame: I find the timing of your post rather off putting ges.

Nicole might have a sordid past and she might not be perfect but I happen to find her perfectly entertaining, in large part due to the wonderful acting done by Arianne Zuker and I'll say it, IMO, AS would have made a hash of those scenes if she had been given the same material.

It's a little ironic that John went through this once and now his son, Brady, is helping another woman pull the same stunt.

I have more simpathy for Nicole than I did for Kristen though. It's irrational, I know. I loved to hate Kristen but I love Nicole. Ari has become a great actress and I never thought I'd say that 10 years ago.

ilovemydays - i agree with you. Nicole's past just makes me want to root for her all the more. It even kind of gives her a reason for her attitude, where as some other characters are just sluts because they are stupid and pathetic.

I saw this on Prevuze, and I just can't get behind the certain mentality that because Nicole is a threat to some people, she is automatically the devil incarnate and an awful character. EVERYONE on daytime TV is a slut...why do we pick on the one who was forced into porn by her father and sexually abused? Horrific if you really think about it.
Oh well. I don't blame the girl...if it were EJ I was looking at, I'd be a slut too...and she won the man!

Nicole has been the most interesting and entertaining character this year, and Ari has just blown me away with her realistic portrayal of all emotions.

:applause: Heck yeah, both excellent posts! ICAM. I believe, with the exception of her affair with Colin while married to Victor, Nicole has only slept with one man (relationship) at a time. In the time she has been back on the show, she has only been with one man. Like the others said, at least Nicole has the history to explain her emotional and psychological scars that provoke her actions. Unlike so many others on soaps that jump from bed to bed (to elevator) to bed without any real reason.
I hated Nicole when she was on before, but this "newer", more layered Nicole (and Ari's outstanding performances) really make me feel for her.

I recall Nicole cheating on Victor with a lawyer or something several years back, as well. I can't remember his name, but I remember this really cheesy scene where we saw Nicole's leg hoisted up in front of the camera as she pulled her pantyhose back up while he watched her from across the room, LoL.

She cheated on Lucas as well with Eric and don't forget that guy Kate paid to get him to get her $5 million from Nicole back. He promised Nicole that if she invested with him, he would double her money and they slept together.

And that's the issue Nicole-fans need to understand and not take personally when people call the character of Nicole names that are... um... "less than chaste"

It's not so much that she's doing anything a lot of soap characters don't do (in fact, there are plenty of people on soaps who have gotten around). It's the way everyone at the show portrays her - case in point, the way the scene Kenny described was shot. They didn't have to shoot it that way, but they did.

I'm a big Nicole fan myself, and think Ari is doing a fantastic job. But I certainly also understand why people think Nicole is trashier than most female soap characters who have gotten around. It's not so much a numbers game, as the way the show has presented her in their shots, their framing, their music, etc. in the past.

I have no problem accepting how Nicole was in the PAST but I do take exception to calling her names that no longer pertain to who she is now. I am equally annoyed by people that say "once a rapist always a rapist". Characters should be allowed to learn from their past mistakes, to grow and evolve without getting cornered in by previous bad writing.

Whatever Nicole was before it should not restrict her from becoming a better person/character.

:hail: :hail: :hail: :applause:
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.

Higley can turn Nicole's character around just as fast as she she did everybody else's. A character goes from Saint to Sinner on the turn of a dime so that it can makes sense (lol) with her latest storyline.
I wouldn't get too fond of any character. Nick, anyone?

Actually, I've already been mentioning I wouldn't be too surprised to see Nicole get thrown under the bus and then get written out, too. Nick, John, Marlena, Mimi, Billie, Morgan, et al, anyone?

It's quite obvious from the D&D firing that no one is safe, so your comment really isn't timely or that earthshocking or a huge revelation anymore.

Scarring only prevents a pregnancy if it doesn't fit with the storyline. Where's the drama with Nicole probably eventually adopting a Sami baby if she gets pregnant again?

One of the best posts explaining Nicole for me...especially in reference to the rapist part.
The only way a character remains remotely interesting for me is to see some kind of growth, some kind of change. Otherwise, we are watching the same shit for the past 15 years and I tend to hate the character (ie. SAMI).

I don't mind Nicole being a slut, gold digger, etc. I loved watching that. But I have also loved this soft maternal side too. It is called layers to a character, and it makes her interesting...and Ari makes it believable.
A lesser actress couldn't pull it off...maybe that is why Sami still is acting 15...imo, of course.
