Quote allmylovingdays: NO CHORESS Housetop??!!! I was one of six and I wonder how it was that my parents did it too but we had chores! My oldest sister she use to be like my mom and when h girls were young she had them doing the same chores we did. However my sister she lost it one day and she left her girls and husband and seeing my nieces live with a thoughtless woman as mother has shown me how hard it can be but also how strong and resiliant people can be when their families are dysfunctional. I applaude them and blindiedling and kenerly my sympathies are with you both and gld that you were able to overcome your childhoods.

____________

The writers said when they first came they were going to show us romance and try and bring a little bit of reality. BUT when they choose Sami struggling it left me cold. She had children's who's fathers would't let their kids go without.

I always wanted to see Gabi, Nicole and Rafe have the money issues and struggling to pay for school, how to eat, where do they live and on what??!! Nicole I wanted to see struggle with her not having a kid and finding out like so many other women in this real world that it just wasn't going to happen but there are thousands of kids who need foster homes or want to be adopted.

I was expected Sami to go rockbottom. I think it was spoiled she would, and she needed this so maybe she could get that reality check. I just don't think it's happening now.


No chores!!! Not a one and not one of us had to. Truth, so help me. My parents told us that we would just get in their way! I am a coal miners's daughter, just like the song says and my mom sounds like the Dolly Parton song, Coat of Many Colours. Because, I didn't have to do chores, I never made my children do any, either. My mom said chores are for the adults and that your time will come!! Very corny but entirely true.


I saw Alison Sweeney on the cover of a magazine....SLIM????, don't remember the name. She was smoken hot in a bikini! :-)

Hi. You should go to youtube and look for past Rafe videos and you can consider, yourself, whether or not, you like him. As for me, I don't think he has chemistry with Sami. I, also, do not think the acting is good. JMO

The way I see it, Sami may never change. There was way too many things that happened to her in the past for any change to come to surface. I can also say that the writers are a bit off their rockers when it comes to the character of Sami. She can still be her old self, but it is vital that she at least grows up and mature. Her immature behavior is negatively affecting the lives of her children; which she struggles to see. If she continues to spiral down this same path, she is doomed to be miserable for the rest of her life. She needs to push all other issues aside and focus on how she can improve herself as a mother and woman. She ought to stop reflecting on the past and focus on the now. The more she is focused on the past, the more self-destructive behaviors she presents.

Believe me, I know what it means to hurt when your entire family is against you, but forgiveness comes with a big relief; which is what Sami must come to terms with. I just don't understand how a mother in her late thirties can be so consumed with so much hatred and pain based on issues that occurred years ago. It is not healthy at all and can cause some psychological problems in which would be very difficult to resolve.

Sami has been raped more than twice. Once by Allen, once by EJ, and several times by fake Rafe (thanks to EJ).

I see Sami as a character that is anxiously awaiting to fly out of the coo-coo's nest. She is seeking for a way out; which is why she resorted to several men to help heal her wound; unfortunately, she has been unsuccessful time and time again. She has yet to discover her true self and concentrate on the positive things in her life.

Now as far as Rafe is concerned, Rafe must give Sami plenty of space to breath and find herself. The two are still married and should find ways to resolve their problems. I am a Safe fan and I truly believe that Safe belongs together. I don't blame Rafe for the questionable behaviors recently, but he has surely made things a lot more complicating for Sami. I blame Sami more for sleeping with EJ. Seriously, no one goes from crying about their missing child and end up having sex. That's just hard to believe.

EJ on the other hand, need to leave Sami alone. He always has a hidden agenda that always have a negative impact on Sami and her kids. He should keep his distance. I honestly think that EJ moving in across from Sami is an indication of control and manipulation. The smirk on his face shows it all.

Regarding Sami: I can't stand the character. I hate the way she's so disrespectful to her grandmother by shouting and have tandrums constantly when obviously others are hurting with their own problems. Her own son admitted the other day that he's been "taking care" of his mother since he was a boy. It's time for this character to grow the heck up. Except for the rapes, a lot of that crap Sami brought on herself. This last time, EJ didn't go looking for Sami, she showed up at HIS house. So, she needs to stay away from him. The character truly sickens me. She supposed to grown woman who acts like a $%%^^ fool.

I am not a fan of the character of Rafe or the actor Galen, I can not speak for others but the reason I do like Rafe stems from me being a big fan of Ej and Sami as a couple I did not like that EJ and Sami were just starting to get legs as a couple and they brought in Rafe to break up Ejami again.
However, the reason I feel Rafe is a useless character for DOOL is that “Hernandez” is not a name of Salem like Horton, Brady, Dimera. His back story has so many holes. He was supposed to be a orphan and knew these nuns cause they raised him… Then all of a sudden they invented 2 sisters and brother… they just randomly showed up and we had never heard of these people before…. He may or may not have killed his fiancé’ or wife….
The reason I do not like Galen is because he says lots of rude things on twitter and I am just not a fan of him.

That is 100% true and she's totally unrelatable.

To say the Hernandez NAME is not good enough for Salem is crossing the line..HIS NAME???? My gosh all of them have to be Horton or brady or Dimera..come on!!!! and for gods sake orphams have siblings>.Sorry but Sami needs to grow up..she is getting on my lst nerve and someone as handsome and kind as Rafe is well rid of her..I read his back dtory and still do not see why so many hate him..Watch Y&R and check Adam out and read what he has done..then you will have someone worthy of all the hate. Just my opinion

Before I give you my opinion on the Rafe hate I want to say two things. First, I think Galen is the best looking actor on the show, and second, I am very UNDERwhelmed with his acting. I don't dislike the Rafe character, just not overly carried away. Now, with that out of the way, here is my two cents on why you see so much Rafe hate on here. Rafe was brought in to break up the EJAMI couple. Whether or not you like them, they sizzle as a couple. They play off each other really well and have undeniable chemistry. If you are rooting for this couple, you are naturally going to hate whatever gets in their way. I am a Bo/Hope fan, and I hated when Carly was brought back. She could have had the beauty of Cleopatra, the wealth of Oprah Winfrey, the loving nature of Sister Theresa, and the acting chops of Lauren Bacall, and I would have still hated her because she came between my beloved Bo and Hope. Nothing she could have done or said would have made her redeemable in my eyes as long as she stood in the way of my couple. I think the EJ/Sami lovers probably feel the same way about their couple, too. Then, add into all of this the fact that the Rafe character has been written in a careless and sloppy manner with no backstory, it is not difficult at all to understand all the hate. The one good thing about the love/hate of Rafe is all the buzz it creates for the show. And the show needs every positive thing it can garner at the moment.
