Let’s Hear It For The Boys!
Younger men led these characters from GENERAL HOSPITAL, ALL MY CHILDREN, ONE LIFE TO LIVE and RYAN’S HOPE into May/ December affairs to remember
Dorian & Joey
Revenge plots don’t get a whole lot more attractive than the one Dorian hatched against longtime archenemy Viki in 1994. To stick it to her former daughter-in-law, the conniver intended to seduce her nemesis’ strapping teenage son, whom she insisted on calling, rather than Joey, the more mature-sounding Joe. That part, of course, was easy for the Machiavellian mantrap. Enticing guys was second nature to her. But what she hadn’t counted on was that, after he’d lost his virginity to her, she’d find herself as much in love with him as he was with her.
All in all, their affair was brief. But it made a far greater impression on Dorian than any revenge plot, successful or otherwise, ever had or ever would.
Joey and Dorian got past their age difference with ease. It was their height difference that was the problem!
