Real talk. In real life, I'm a big believer in doing your best to live a life of integrity, morals and values. None of us are perfect but I do believe in always trying to do and be your best. But people, in the world of fiction, yes I still believe in boundaries. However, that's the time to push the envelope, right? Surely, that's the time to expand and to stretch the imagination? If we can't live vicariously through our favorite characters....where is the fun in that?

Which brings us to our point. What in the world happened to daytime's playboy? Where oh where have thalt gone? You know who we are talking about. Those sexy guys going trough soapland leaving broken hearts in their wake. And we love them anyway. We know we shouldn't but we can't help ourselves.  Jack Abbott (Terry Lester/ Peter Bergman, The Young and the Restless) and  Tad "the Cad" Martin (Michael E. Knight, All My Children) are the two characters that come immediately to mind.

They were daytime's Casanova Browns. Jack slept with anything female, beautiful and breathing including his daddy's wife (Jill). Tad was pretty much the same and he slept with his girlfriend and her momma (Liza and Marian) at the same time. Well, not exactly at the same time they didn't push the envelope that much, LOL. You know what we are saying.

With a daytime lineage of the likes of Jack and Tad then why oh why on soap's green earth isn't Kyle Abbott following in his father's footsteps? Kyle is good-looking, charming, charismatic, smart and rich. What else do you need?  Yet barely a year after Kyle returned to Genoa City he's married. And then he hadn't slept with anyone until his wedding night. Why? Why? Why? How is that soapy?

We don't ship Skyle or Kola (we may prefer one over the other) but in the grand scheme of this triangle; we are team SOAP. We just want good soap. We were so happy with the spoilers and promo that suggested Kola would sleep together. We were like yes! Yes! Yes! But Kyle's conscious got the best of him. Are you serious? Mariah, Anna, Lola, etc,....all could have been notches under Kyle's belt by now. Hey, Kyle could have gone to visit Lily for conjugal visits. Kyle should be that guy. He should be whisking all the pretty ladies around in Jabot's jet. Breaking and even stomping a heart or two along the way. Not waffling through this triangle. 

And unless you are only watching TV shows on the Hallmark Channel in addition to daytime, you are watching playboys everywhere else. So please the moral police miss us. Remember our disclaimer. It is fiction. Boundaries yes but come on loosen up.

And especially for a character like Kyle soap genes should come into play. For old school soapers (like myself) Terry Lester's, Jack, smooth, suave and a lover man. And Peter's Jack picked up right where Terry left off. Maura West and Susan Walters were great as Diane Jenkins. But we must specifically, highlight the OG. The original, Alex Donnelley, was phenomenal and set the stage for the character. She was what soap vixen dreams are made of. In fact, what happened to the soap vixen? That's another thought. However, Gabi Hernandez might have started the trend to bring her back to the forefront of daytime, please soap gawds. Okay back to this article. You mean to tell me Kyle is the son of Jack Abbott and Diane Jenkins and we aren't taping into that soap gene pool? Mkay.

Listen. Jack Abbott at Kyle's age would have slept with Lola and then went home and slept with his wife, Summer. It boggles the soap mind how this week Nick (no shade to him) was the one sleeping around. It's a Freaky Friday storyline. Nick should have had Kyle's storyline and Kyle should have had his.

We look around the Final Four and there is no one actor/character combo more suited to resurrect the daytime playboy than Kyle Abbott/Michael Mealor. Rob/Ben and Eli/Lamon also come to mind our only reservation about those two is neither character is rich. So, Kyle gets the rich Abbott edge. But hey if Days writers want to make Ben and Eli playboys; please go right ahead. Let us quickly move on because #Cinners and #Elani's are going to come for our heads lol.

Seriously, all we want is a little more "play" in our daytime "boys". Is that too much to ask? What happened to the daytime playboy? Can someone find him and bring him back? We miss him so!

What do you all think?
