10 Soap Opera Retailers Who'd Get Our Black Friday Business!
No. 7: Scruples, Scruples
The year 1980 saw the premiere of Scruples, the soapy miniseries adaptation of Judith Krantz's runaway best-selling novel about Wilhemina Winthrop/Billy Ikehorn (Lindsay Wagner), the poor relation of a wealthy family who builds her own luxurious department store empire. The three-part, 90-minute installments of Scruples proved to be a smash hit for CBS.
A pilot for a Scruples reboot, produced by movie star Natalie Portman, was ordered by ABC in 2012. While there's been no word on if we'll ever see it on television, we'd definitely stand in a line around a Rodeo Drive corner to get back into Scruples.
