Ric was never able to reek havoc on Sonny and as you can see, like all Sonny's enemies, he's no long around.
Ric deserted his daughter and ran away.
That's okay. He can be gone for a couple of decades like Julian was and then come back. Some of us would be very happy to see him. LOL
Ric has fans?
He was OBSESSED with Sonny. Wanted everything and anything related to Sonny.
Wanted Sonny's love /attention more then life itself.
Their mother chose Sonny over him , go figure.
Ric slept with his stepdaughter, his own daughter's sister while his wife had cancer.
Ric kept a pregnant woman locked in his basement because she was Sonny's woman, while his own wife lived upstairs.
Ric slept with Claudia because she was married to Sonny.
Ric deserted his own child and ran away.
I really didn't know anyone liked this character. Thought that's why he was let go.
The only thing I can say is, he loved Sonny even more then I do! :)
But, I can understand the waiting, i'm still waiting for Jake to come back!
