Soap Opera’s 8 Biggest Betrayals
Betrayals can come in many forms. They can unfold as affairs, manipulations or even promises that were broken. In the land of soap operas, betrayals occur all the time, almost on a weekly basis – and they can turn an average storyline into a remarkable one. What makes a betrayal so intriguing, is that it can cause a lot of drama and more often than not, those betrayed are often hurt by someone that is closest to them. Below is a top eight list of the soap world’s biggest betrayals.
8. A Mother Steals A Boyfriend – Days of Our Lives
Having your boyfriend cheat on you can be devastating. Having your boyfriend cheat on you with your mom is simply unforgivable. Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) Eve Donovan never really approved of J.J. Deveraux for her daughter Paige and worked hard to try and rip these two love birds apart. Not only was J.J. once a drug dealer, he also happened to be the son of her mortal enemy in Salem, Jennifer Deveraux. While Eve did everything she could to break these two up, nothing seemed to work for this single mom and she was at her wits end. Still, that didn’t stop her from jumping into the sack with a much younger J.J. The good news was the affair did succeed in breaking up J.J. and Paige, but it also put a major dent in her mother-daughter relationship with her youngest child.
7. A.J.’s Shooter Is Sonny – General Hospital
Fans of General Hospital (GH) were shocked in 2012 when A.J. Quartermaine (literally) returned from the dead. While it made for an interesting storyline, the most tender part of the entire angle was watching Michael and his bio dad reunite and bond. Not everyone was pleased with this reunion, including, Port Charles main mob boss Sonny Corinthos and the man who raised Michael. Sonny put up with A.J. and his antics until 2014. Thinking A.J. was the person who shot his love, Connie Falconeri (the real shooter was Ava Jerome), Sonny shot A.J. to avenge her death. Losing his biological father once again was hard for Michael; however, the young man was even more devastated to learn it was Sonny who shot A.J.
