Quote Its not real
Quote yandrfan99: All I can say is that Phyllis is a lying biotch and a low life piece of garbage. Even when the truth is out she still lies and lies and lies. If Daniel believes her he is as dumb as they come.
Why? It that is the story the current writers are telling, then she is not lying. Just like Nikki telling Sharon she wanted toughen her up to so she could be a Newman or something like that. Come on, Nikki thought Sharon was goldding trash and didn't want her anywhere near her son. But the writers changed that. So what?
So for some of us who have watched for a long time it is ridiculous to chop and change history like this. If there is going to be no continuity, why even pretend that these are the same characters? Why not just start a new story line, with completely different characters every week?
The thing about continuing series type shows is that many people watch because they become invested in the characters.To completely change who they are, and who they have been, at the whim of the writers will destroy what so many love about the show.
Even primetime shows, which air just once a week, would feel a huge outcry if they were just to rewrite their characters history. And soaps, which many watch every weekday for years, depend even more on dedicated viewers who know the characters and feel invested in them.
Of course the writers CAN do this if they want, the same as they could decide to write that the sky is purple, or that Phyllis has magic powers and can turn her enemies into frogs, or that Victor Newman is really an alien who has been masqerading as a human for all these years but, if they do so, I think they risk losing most of their fans.
On the other hand they seem to be going out of their way to try to drive fans away so, maybe re-writing this history, is just another step in their plan to get this show cancelled.
