G.H. Commentary by Rachel
Sheís Not Laura!
After weeks, months and possibly years of Lulu being compared to Laura,
itís time to dispel the myth: sheís not Laura. Not only is Lulu not
Laura, she doesnít even possess Laura-like qualities, or conduct herself
the way Laura would.
Lulu is selfish. She honestly believes that the world revolves around
her. Her wants, needs and desires are all that matter. She very rarely
feels remorse for hurting others in her quest to satisfy herself. For
example, how many times has she used Spinelli or clung to him whenever
the mood suited her? Now that she has Johnny (in the past, Logan), has
she sought out Spinelli for anything?
Lulu is self-righteous. How many times has she forced her logic of
what is ďrightĒ on others? If youíre like me, you stopped counting when
you thought of twenty incidents without even trying. My number one
incident would have to be when she believed that Elizabeth should
support a rehabbing Lucky. She excused all of Luckyís sins and verbally
attacked Elizabeth for not being there for Lucky. She called Elizabeth
cold and uncaring, because she didnít want to hold her cheating husbandís
hand. Even when Elizabeth explained her reasoning, Lulu continued to
Lulu is a hypocrite. GH viewers witnessed this when she berated Jason
for having a ONS (one-night stand) with Elizabeth and lying about Jakeís paternity. It
didnít matter what events lead up to Jakeís conception or that keeping
Jakeís paternity a secret was the best way to keep him safe. All she
knew was that it was wrong to lie to Lucky. Excuse me, but didnít Lulu
use a lie to justify her needs when she destroyed Georgie and Dillonís
marriage? If I recall correctly, she wanted Dillon and lied to get him.
But I forgot, what Lulu does is acceptable. What others do, is not.
Out of all the years that I have watched GH, I
cannot recall a time when Laura was selfish, self-righteous or hypocritical. I remember her
being the opposite of all three of these unsavory qualities. There are
several men who are related to Lulu who have these uncomplimentary
attributes (Luke and Lucky), but only one female: Carly (and Bobbie in
her day). Therefore, I beg of you TPTB, stop comparing Lulu to Laura. If
I donít see it, I can guarantee other fans donít either.
