The same people who sang Nick's praises when he deserted Sharon at her lowest point, the death of her child, who found all kinds of excuses for his behavior, (well, he wanted Phyllis) are now raking him over the coals because he also walked out on Phyllis at her lowest point. When he couldn't stay and support his wife through her grief at the loss of their child, what in the h-ll makes anyone thing he would stay and support a wife through her lies and attempted murder trial. The same people who thought the desertion of Sharon was justified are now ready to tar and feather him at his desertion of Phyllis.
All the craziness is not only on the soap! :D
