I thought I was the only one here who sympathized with Stephanie. Although, after despising her, Melanie has mellowed out a little, but I still like Steph better and though the pairing with Philip was a good one. In fact, I still get the impression they both still love each other.
I wonder how many people would like her better if they wrote her part differently. Because I think she’s a good actor, very pretty (after all, she was Miss Teen America), and is an asset to the show.
