General Hospital’s Robert has been a ladies’ man ever since he hit Port Charles back in the early 1980s. He went from Tiffany (Sharon Wyatt) to Jackie (a 19-year-old Demi Moore), but the real loves of his life were still to come. (Well, technically, one of them had already happened, but we didn’t know it yet.)
General Hospital Polling
Which woman was the best of all time for Robert (Tristan Rogers)? Here’s what over 2,000 viewers had to say about that controversy:
A majority of the audience, 57% voted for an alleged dead (to Robert at least; the audience knows she’s still alive) woman: Holly (Emma Samms), whom Robert initially married just so he could keep her in the country. Holly was pregnant with Luke’s (Anthony Geary) baby, and Luke was presumed dead.
Holly lost the baby but fell in love with Robert. Luke returned, much drama ensued, but eventually, Mr. and Mrs. Scorpio became the Nick and Nora Charles of Port Charles. Then she was presumed dead. The first time.
Less than half of the winning number, 25%, went for Anna (Finola Hughes), the wife Robert never mentioned for all the early years we knew him, mother of his only daughter, Robin (Kimberly McCullough). Robert and Anna were married for the second time and then they were both presumed dead. They’re both alive now. But she’s with Finn (Michael Easton). Which still beats being dead for future potential…
Robert’s new adventure sidekick is Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), and 13% of General Hospital fans are intrigued where that could go. She’s not his usual cool, sophisticated – English – type. But variety is the spice of life, no?
New Old Girl
Jackie is coming back to Port Charles, and 5% think they have unfinished business. They did have crazy chemistry back in the day, but, as we said above, she was Demi Moore then… (Now she will be Kim Delaney.) General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
