Top 20 Most Memorable Soap Weddings of All Time

by Michael Maloney, posted Feb 17th 2011 2:00PM

Bo and Hope weddingSoap opera weddings are often the culmination of years of dealing with heartache and conquering adversity. But just because the couple exchanges "I do's" doesn't mean it's happily ever after -- as Sonny and Brenda's upcoming wedding on 'General Hospital' is proving.

Many, but not all couples on soaps get hitched for the right reasons. Sometimes the bride or groom is blackmailing the other or someone just wants to land a rich spouse!

One thing's for sure -- soap weddings are always memorable. Here's a look back at 20 soap wedding ceremonies (or post-ceremony moments) that fans remember fondly. Is your favorite not on the list? Let us know!

Seven Romantic Cliches on TV

by Kim Potts, posted Feb 11th 2011 4:30PM
Moonlighting With Valentine's Day almost upon us, we're turning to -- where else? -- the tube for inspiration on all things romantic.

Oh sure, love in prime time has always been littered with cliché after cliché, but you have to admit -- TV land's couples also have a whole lot of happy endings under their belts.

So here, from odd couples and shrewish women to love triangles and TV jerks and the women who love them, TV's most enduring love clichés:

'The Taming of the Shrew' Couples
Let's say this upfront: No one exemplifies this romantic TV cliché more than 'Moonlighting' duo Maddie and David, who even starred in 'Atomic Shakespeare,' a classic episode of the '80s dramedy that cleverly spoofed both their relationship and 'The Taming of the Shrew.'

Eight Couples Who Met on TV Shows

Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. HallThe news that Peter Krause and Lauren Graham, co-stars of the NBC dramedy 'Parenthood,' are a real-life couple may have icked some of you out, but I didn't bat an eye.

First of all, who cares what celebrities do when the cameras aren't rolling? Secondly, it's happened so many times before that the CDC needs to classify it as some sort of medical epidemic.

It makes sense, in a way. TV actors spend 11 hours out of their 12-hour work days waiting to shoot scenes and a few relationships are bound to bloom. And to prove it, here's a list of nine TV couples whose relationships started on a simple sound stage in between endless takes and blossomed into a lifetime of endless love (right up until the divorce settlement).

Peter Krause and Lauren Graham Go From TV Siblings to Real-Life Couple

by Kelly Woo, posted Sep 9th 2010 2:30PM
Lauren Graham and Peter Krause'Parenthood' stars Peter Krause and Lauren Graham have officially come out as a couple. According to People, the actress confirmed the rumors to Redbook magazine. The couple play siblings Adam and Sarah Braverman.

"Nobody knew about it for awhile, because we like to be at home, cooking and not going out," Graham told Redbook in its upcoming Sept. 21 issue. "I've also been really protective of it, because it's important that you can buy us as brother and sister on the show."

This makes Krause and Graham the latest in a line of faux incestuous TV couples -- actors who play relatives on-screen while engaging in a romantic relationship off-screen. Married 'Dexter' stars Michael C. Hall (Krause's 'Six Feet Under' castmate) and Jennifer Carpenter portray (adoptive) siblings Dexter and Debra Morgan.

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

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 9th 2010 4:20PM
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.

Biggest Reality TV Break-Ups

by Chris Jordan, posted Jun 1st 2010 4:00PM
You don't need us to tell you that maintaining a relationship is not easy. Well, maintaining a relationship with TV cameras on is all but impossible. So we're not surprised by the breakup of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, not in the least. We present to you a list of other notorious, unlucky-in-love reality TV break-ups:

The Bachelors -- ABC's 'The Bachelor' is an entity unto itself when it comes to reality TV breakups. Simply put, the show has a terrible record of couples staying together. How bad? Try one for 14 (or two for 14 if you count Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, technically a runner-up, from Season 13, which we won't).

The only Bachelor couple still on is the most recent, Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi, and frankly, we don't see that one lasting long. Most Bachelor couples, like Season 3's Jen Schefft and Andrew Firestone, split after a couple of months and there have been a few others to last a year or two.

Season 7's Charlie O'Connell and Sarah Brice had been on-again/off again since 2005, but they made headlines in April when they announced they were off again.

TV Break-Ups: 10 Devastating TV Couple Splits

by Oliver Miller, posted Feb 12th 2010 5:00PM
kevin and winnie wonder yearsThere are break-ups and then there are Break-Ups. (And then there are break-ups.) We've all had a relationship end in our lives, and we've all seen them end on TV. And the serial nature of television shows demands that characters be constantly drifting into and out of relationships.

But still, some TV break-ups hit us harder than others. When we grow attached to certain characters, their fictional splits can hit us as hard as a divorce or a dumping in our own lives.

And so, we present a list of 10 television break-ups that truly devastated us, for one reason or another. These are the Sam and Dianes, the Buffy and Angels, the Kevin and Winnies ... We wanted them to stay together so badly. And yet, they failed.

Why does it take TV flirts so long to hook up?

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 4th 2006 7:53PM
West Wing's Josh and DonnaYesterday, Slate posted a great article by Kate Arthur about how poorly TV shows treat sexual tension between characters. In the article, Arthur mentions every major TV couple that's teased us with their constant "will they or won't they?" games over the last thrity years, from Sam and Diane to Mulder and Scully.

The jump-off point for the article is the recent West Wing episode where longtime flirts Josh and Donna first kissed, then had sex. Twice. Took 'em long enough, right? I mean, the show's been on for seven years, for Pete's sake. But they're willful teenagers compared to some of the other couples that Arthur examines in the article. She even includes couples that do hook up, like Luke and Lorelai of Gilmore Girls, giving the added twist that they are being kept at arm's length from each other this year because Lauren Graham's and Scott Patterson's physical chemistry with each other is so poor (I've heard that the two don't get along, but I don't see that tension on screen at all).

Of course, she cites the grandaddy of all TV hookups, when Maddie and Dave slept together on Moonlighting, as the big reason why TV flirts never get together anymore.

Damn you, Moonlighting! If it weren't for you, we would have never had to endure the words, "We were on a break!" for eight years.
