    Was I the only one who never liked Carly?

    I just NEVER liked that character & never rooted 4 her!

    Didn't like her from day one...........when she came in & got in the way of the original Roseanna & Mike!

    I know there was a huge fanbase 4 her pairing with Jack......but I just couldn't with them or any of her pairings!

    Anyone else NOT a fan of the character?


    Or, was I the only non-fan?

    No, I really, really, really couldn't stand her. There was about 5 minutes when I was starting to like her, back when Jack had disappeared (with amnesia and was living with Julia II) because I felt sorry for her, but later when she found out she didn't have cancer and DID NOT tell her husband or kids right away.........I said, "NEVER AGAIN!"

          Julie was a bad influence. I can understand why John Dixon did not care for her. I loved Carly with Jack however.

            I never liked Carly either. I just hated how smug she could be. She didn't have the kind of personality I could relate to or be friends with. It didn't help that she was constantly heavily featured (excluding Maura's maternity leaves). I know people like to say that Martha Byrne or Terri Conn were the writer's pets, but Maura was definitely the favorite.

              I don't about MB being a pet of the writers she was TREATED horribly by tptb & I quit watching when she was done so bad by them!


              They couldn't even bring her back when they canceled the show....I didn't watch as much as I would have toward the end had she been still there!

            Yeah, OP, I was never a fan of Carly. I didn't get the appeal of her at all and I never found her all that likeable. Her relationship with Jack actually reminds me a lot of Reva and Josh on GL, in that Josh was straight-laced and Reva was getting herself into all kinds of situations (but unlike Carly I loved Reva and the Jeva romance). I just always thought Jack could do better and never got why he put up with her ish.

            I despised Carly throughout her entire run of the show. I couldn't stand Reva and Josh either. I left Springfield for Oakdale when the focus shifted to them and their clan. Nevertheless, I did want both couples to end up together at the end of each show, as it just seemed right and they had huge fan bases, even though I was not part of them. I felt that a good character like Jack was wasted on Carly. I just didn't like the way the characters were written, BUT with both couples there was strong chemistry and great acting.

                I liked how Carly evolved over time. Loved her and Jack and her son Parker.

                  Sometimes I liked Carly and sometimes I didn't. Some of the acting tics like the curling of the upper lip could amuse me or annoy me depending on how often it would appear.

                    I was prepared to like her since I was introduced to ATWT by someone who was a huge fan and he talked up Carly a lot before I watched but nope... never liked her character.

                      Liked Carly til she banged Holden behind Lily's back or were they together at the time (holden&Lily), i forget.Point is without Jack in Carly's life, she was awful.And Carly got into the strangest situations whether she was being blackmailed/kidnapped or terrorizing her sister Rosanna by going after her men.Her all time enemy, Julie was hilariousulimate good girl driven crazy by Carly always being forgiven by Oakdale residents.

                        I did not know Carly slept with Holden, I had pretty much stop watching then by that time. I was 50/50 with Carly. Didn't she and Rosanna make peace prior to the show ending. I know Carly seduced Mike once. What other guys of Rosanna did she sleep with? Wasn't Julie the rich girl who was married to Jack and went cuckoo?

                        Yes, Carly and Rosanna made peace. And I wish I could forget Carly/Holden. They had no chemistry and it made no sense. Holden never even liked Carly.

                        I loved crazy Julia. I remember when she threw "the baby" (a turkey) at Carly as a parting gift and told her "Happy Thanksgiving!"

                      I absolutely loved Carly Tenney! She’s one of my all-time favorite characters. Maura West is my favorite actress. I loved Jack & Carly! They were one of the last great soap supercouples. I started watched ATWT after AW got cancelled and Carly was the first character who got me interested and hooked.
