DC's 10 Worst Soap Opera Couples of 2012
No. 6: Sonny and Connie/Kate, General Hospital
General Hospital may have been the best soap opera of 2012, but they gave us one of the worst frontburner couples in the soap's history. When fashionista Kate Howard (Kelly Sullivan) started to unravel, later morphing into alter ego Connie Falconeri, GH embarked on a silly, sad tale that saw razor-sharp, mob boss Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) being turned into a cuckold by an over-the-top fruit loop.
The same Sonny who dumped Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil) in the rain repeatedly for lesser offenses, put up with a DID-addled goofball making a fool of him at their technicolor wedding? Oh hell no!
Both Brenda and Carly (Laura Wright) had their fair share of mental problems, but Sonny didn't suffer these kinds of indignancies with either. We have a hard time buying the girl from Bensonhurst really being worth the Dimpled Don going through all of these changes. Especially when Brenda is out there somewhere, likely without an umbrella to her fabulous name...
