No matter what storyline the writers give Sharon(even that horrific one where she married Victor), she always does the best she can. I get really upset when I see people bashing her, so I'm very thankful for this thread. I wish they would write her a good-girlfriend story like the relationship she used to have with Drucilla. With the exception of Phyllis & Lauren, the writers very rarely explore female relationships. They are important as well. Sharon is a trooper. Kudos to her.
The bashing of sharon is rooted in nick not ever loving Phyllis like he did sharon. It doesn't bother me, its great for the character and the actress to continue to be a number one topic with MOST of the viewers here. Sharon has always been good at garnering attention and bringing the drama, and throughout most of the characters history, she didn't have to be extreme to do it. What I don't like is how OOC writers have made her over the years, and majority of the reason its done is to continue to coddle and protect the nick character from being seen as anything but a hero. They failed miserably at this, b/c despite what you read here, many viewers are fed up with it and its made nick far more unlikeable than he's ever been before. This is one of the main things I have had enough of, I am not going to continue to watch nonsense like that anymore.
