Quote Moms Days: I have watched since I was a little girls and Marlena was with Don and they put her in the safe house with Roman. I ALWAYS loved Marlena and still like her in certain situations. However, I have learned to dislike her with Sami. She speaks rudely and condescendingly to her and treats her with contempt and disrespect i.e. Eric slam today. She treats Carrie as if she is the Golden child and can do no wrong. Encouraging her to go after her sister's ex is completely despicable. Putting down Sami every chance she gets to Will is also pretty low. Sami risked everything to rescue Will from Nick and how does he repay her...mocks her behind her back with Grandma Marlena. For a psychiatrist she should know better.
Given that her thankless daughter Samantha is a self-serving pig, I'd say Marlena doing damned well to keep it held back so much! In THIS case she's not a psychiatrist, she's her mother and Samantha shows her NO respect.
