What would our favorite soap operas be without the moguls who make everything happen?
Without them making secret deals, blackmailing, or even doing a corporate takeover here or there, soap life wouldn’t be as exciting. Here are some of Soap Hub’s favorites.
The Young and the Restless
They didn’t write a book called Ruthless about him for nothing! Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) certainly knows how to get things done and how to manipulate things (especially his own children) to get what he wants–and he’s incredibly successful at pulling it all off without breaking a sweat.
Unlike Jack Abbott, The Mustache’s plans rarely blow up in his face. There was one person he almost never messed with and that was fellow power player, Katherine Chancellor. She proved she could get it all done without alienating everyone around her.
There are so many reasons those in Port Charles know not to mess with Tracy Quartermaine (Jane Elliot). She’s one smart lady who learned at her father Edward’s knee how to get what she wants.
That is why ELQ International is still a powerhouse in town, even if Michael is the one running it day to day.
Tracy has been in bed with the mob and Luke Spencer, and if there’s one thing she’s learned, it’s never let a little thing like the law stand in the way. She has no peer, and that’s just one of the reasons we love her.
