Past: Prostitute (Prior to her 1977 arrival in Port Charles)
Bobbie Spencer came to Port Charles to pursue her nursing career. A former prostitute, she had given up a child to adoption. Scott Baldwin was the first man to attract her, but he was in love with Laura Webber. Bobbie turned to her brother Luke to help break them up, but when the plan failed, Bobbie pretended to be pregnant with Scotty's child. Her ploy didn't work, and Scotty ended up marrying Laura.
Bobbie's next love interest was Roy DiLucca, a mobster and Luke's partner. He died in her arms after being shot in an attempted assassination of a senator.
In order to attract her next love interest, Dr. Noah Drake, Bobbie pretended to be blind. The handsome doctor made it clear that he was not interested in commitment, and Bobbie rushed headlong into an abusive marriage with D.L. Brock. He was murdered, and although Bobbie was accused, her innocence was proven by attorney, Jake Meyer.
Bobbie married Jake, who later cheated with Lucy Coe. Lucy became pregnant but lost the baby. Jake left town, leaving a letter of explanation for Bobbie, but Scotty destroyed it because his own marriage had failed, and he had his eye on Bobbie.
In 1989, Bobbie married Dr. Tony Jones, discovered relatives she didn't know she had, tried to purchase a black-market baby, had to return it, and ultimately ended up with the child. She struck up a postal affair with a convict, who later escaped, and held her and Tony hostage, while trying to rape Bobbie.
The death of BJ, Bobbie and Tony's daughter, resulted in a much-needed heart-transplant for Maxie. Despite the positive outcome, the trauma of losing a child took a toll on their marriage, and Tony threw Bobbie out when she consummated her affair with Damian Smith. After Damian's untimely death, Bobbie and Tony found their way back to each other again, but even with counseling, their marriage continued to be strained.
At that time, a young woman named, Carly Roberts came to Port Charles, and Tony was ripe for the picking. Bobbie had no idea that Carly was the child she had given up for adoption, and that the young woman had a personal score to settle. When Bobbie found Carly and Tony in bed together, she ended the marriage and turned to Stefan Cassadine. It wasn't long before she realized she had made yet another mistake. The biggest shock was finding out that Carly was her daughter.
When Carly gave birth to the child that was supposedly Tony's, Bobbie was greatly relieved to learn that Tony was not the father of her first grandchild. However, a continuing string of bad romances, including a brief fling with Scotty Baldwin and his faked death, made Bobbie older and wiser.
She got over being angry at Luke for having known Carly's secret all along, and had to suffer the fear that she'd lost her daughter again, but in a car accident this time. The near-death experience only strengthened the mother and daughter relationship.
Bobbie's fear that John Durant was Carly's biological father proved true, and although Bobbie tried to keep his identity secret, it soon leaked out. Durant died at the hand of the mob but not before he convinced Carly that he really loved her despite all his underhanded dealings to try to bring down her husband, Sonny.
In 2006, a plague hit Port Charles, and Bobbie was devastated when her previous husband, Tony Jones, was one of the fatalities. They shared a special bond.
Bobbie's been a colorful character. Between having a gay son, a daughter who married not one, but two mobsters, and having lived herself through a string of failed marriages, bad choices and unwise actions, she's created a lot of excitement on GH over the years. These days,she's not on camera often, but is mentioned when she's babysitting Morgan or popping up at the hospital.
