Soap Hook-Ups That Make You Go "Eww!"

katherine_kelly_lang_brooke_the_bold_and_the_beautiful_cbsIt's nothing news for the soaps to have members of the same family hook up with brothers-in-law or sisters marrying the same guy ... that's just the way it works in daytime. However, every now and then you'll see something really out there that just makes you go, "Whoa!" And sometimes, "Eww!"

That's what happened last Friday on CBS's 'The Bold and the Beautiful,' when 40-something Brooke Logan had wild, up-against-the-wall sexual intercourse -- during her 17-year-old daughter Hope's high school graduation party -- thinking she was boffing her hubby Ridge. Unfortunately, things were not exactly as she thought.

Here's a look at Brooke's bizarro boffing, and some other disgusting hook-ups on the soaps of late, proving that daytime still has the ability to make waves.

Brooke and Oliver, 'B&B': Brooke's reputation as a Valley Girl slut has been the bane of her existence. If she really did screw Hope's boyfriend Oliver, even by accident, she'll never live it down. In her defense, they were wearing masks and Oliver had Ridge's jacket on.

But shouldn't Brooke know the difference between Ridge's body and Oliver's? She has over 20 years of experience as Ridge's partner. Anyway you cut it, unless there's a major switcheroo and we didn't see what we saw, Brooke's encounter with Oliver will be her most disgusting ever and ruin her marriage, her relationship with Hope and probably the social order among the Logans and the Forresters.

sonny_claudia_general_hospital_abcClaudia and Sonny, 'General Hospital'
: Sonny's marriage of opportunity to Claudia was disgusting in many, many ways, and unlike other hook-ups that eventually end with the couple falling in love, Sonny's ultimate reaction to Claudia was unadulterated hatred. Not that they didn't have sex along the way -- adding to the disgusting factor. How could Sonny tolerate boinking a woman whose brother vowed to kill him?

The entire Zacchara family were out to get Sonny, which should have made him wary of Claudia. Instead, for some sick reason, he was turned on by the witch. Their hot sex was kind of gross, especially when viewers knew what Sonny didn't -- that Claudia was responsible for the shooting that landed Sonny's son Michael in a vegetative state. Is it any wonder that this union ended with the words "bitch" and "hate" being thrown around?

todd_marty_one_life_to_live_abcTodd and Marty, 'One Life to Live'
: To understand how disgusting the Marty and Todd connection was, you have to know the history. Todd was one of a group of young men who raped Marty in college. Marty despised Todd with good reason. So when she was suffering from a memory loss and bed-ridden after a car crash, the very notion of Todd taking care of Marty was horrific! He turned her tragedy into an opportunity for him to have another chance with her. Yeech!

Poor Marty had no idea that this fella who was so kind and concerned about her health and recovery was, in fact, a horrible man who was manipulating the situation to his own advantage. Before she regained her memory, she fell in love with Todd and they made love. When she learned who he really was, Marty was disgusted beyond words ... as were most fans!

lily_cane_chloe_the_young_and_the_restless_cbsChloe and Cane, 'The Young and the Restless'
: One way to judge a disgusting soap hook-up is if either of the participants is drugged or drunk during the encounter. Well, this 'Y&R' pairing qualifies. Chloe was pregnant with Billy's baby, only he was somewhere in the Far East and she needed a baby daddy. Cane, Billy's brother at the time (later to be revealed as a con man pretending to Billy's brother Phillip), was a likely candidate even though he was smitten with Lily.

That didn't matter to Chloe. She got Cane plastered at a bar and when he passed out in the car, Chloe made it seem as though they had made love. Cane was convinced, although we were never really sure what Chloe had done to make him think sex had happened ... Anyway, Chloe's lies were disgusting and selfish and good guy Cane did right by her when he learned she was preggers.

So, what about you? Have you seen some soap duos -- on purpose or by accident -- that have made you flip out? Let me know about them in the comments below!

Sonny and Emily as a couple were also cringeworthy on GH.

David Hayward and Amanda Dillion. The first time they hooked up. Amanda is/was Babe's best friend, and David was Babe's bio-daddy. Granted that Amanda is over 18, and David learned of his paternity to Babe years later it had a very ew factor for me, cause it was still father hooking up with daugther's best friend. Not to mention everything he did to Amanda for months afterwards.

Erica and Ryan were on my list originally, so yes, it's disgusting.

And Sami and EJ nearly made the list, too. I might need to do another installment.

how can you exclude Sami and EJ from Days? He raped her, boasted about it right afterwards and then she goes back to him. Truly Eww

How can you omit AMC's Erica and Ryan from this list? That was the most disgusting hook-up I've seen in a long time. She is the grandmother to his son. Yuck.

I remember on GL when Mallet & Marina hooked up...he is her godfather, her former uncle. Who thought that was a good idea?

And don't forget that the iconic Luke & Laura could fall into this category too. He raped her, yet they became America's couple.
