If Max and Stephanie had worked a little harder, Mel would have never been an issue. I also thought if Stephanie had a little patience with Max, this would never have happened. Max just found his sister and I fellt from the beginning Stephanie was all over Max about Mel. She needed to be more supportive about it. I understand Mel was a troublemaker and all, but I just felt Stephanie had no patience or no give when it came to Mel.
Stephanie and Phillip’s break up had nothing to do with Mel. It had EVERYTHING to do with Stephanie deciding to be with someone and then deciding she doesn’t like a major part of his life. I am sorry, there is changing a man, and then there is just being too pushy. I would be fine with Stephenia trying to slowly get PHillip out of the bad side of the Kirakis business, but this all or nothing thing had be baffled.
Then Nathan was the end for me. Stephanie KNEW Mel liked Nathan, she knew that Mel really cared for him, and what does she do? She does anything she can to mess it up. Not because she liked Nathan, how could she? She had just gotten done with Max who she "loved" so much and got un-engaged with Phillip all in less than a year, how could she already be head over heals in love with someone else. Enough to try and steal away Mel’s guy?
Mel is NOT perfect and she has had her own issues. But I trully felt that Mel really cared for Nathan and doesn’t have those same feelings for Phillip. I just feel like Phillip pushed too hard and who wouldn’t break down when a cute guy you thought you really liked kept pushing.
