I’m in the middle of reading The Woman Who Lived Again by Thomasine Rappold (available December 8th), which is about a woman who convinces a virtual stranger to pretend to be her fiancé and escort her to a friend’s wedding because she can’t face her ex and his new bride-to-be without having someone on her arm. Obviously, since this is a romance novel, they go from being fake engaged to falling in love with each other. As I started reading it, I kept thinking about Mac and Felecia from General Hospital. They did the whole fake fiancé thing back in 1998. I was still 11 when those episodes aired, but I loved the whole concept.
Today’s video of the day is from their wedding (from 1998 not 2013 when they remarried after the whole Frisco fiasco at the Nurse’s Ball). One of the things I loved about that storyline was that it was supposed to be a double wedding (with Lucy and Kevin) and Mac and Felecia were going to call theirs off before actually going through with the ceremony. In the end, there was only one set of “I do’s” said (In the middle of the ceremony, it came out that Lucy had caused Serena’s accident by siphoning gas from Eve’s car because she was jealous of Eve and Scotty’s relationship–Lucy would eventually marry Scotty despite maiming his daughter and Eve would marry Kevin before they all divorced and Lucy somehow ended up with Kevin all over again).
For any of my readers that are old school GH fans, look carefully and you’ll see original recipe Jerry Jacks (before he was a hostage taking, town poisoning sociopath played by Sebastian Roche) as well as V, who I think just disappeared one day. I really liked her and her role in the Ned/Alexis/Jax/Chloe debacle in 1999. I miss old school GH–back before Guza ruined every single woman not named Carly or Sam and bowed down to the alter that was The Sopranos.
All you Elizabeth haters: Guza’s the reason she’s the way she is. Before he became head writer in 2000, she was a much different character. Unfortunately, the character assassination apparently continued under Carlivati. Such a shame.
