Ugly Cry

Every Friday night, I try to post another term of Soap Opera Jargon. Find previous entries on the Soap Opera Jargon page on this site.

Ugly Cry – Sometimes on soaps you get a quiet, lovely cry with a single tear or two. Brooke Logan Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful is famous for this. Other times you are totally shredded emotionally and completely break down, tears streaming down the face, physically bent over, red face, red eyed, choking on your own breath crying. Annie Dutton, one of the true masters of the craft, works herself up into an ugly cry in this scene.

Check out the definition and history of the term ugly cry according to Merriam-Webster.

Robansuefarm is the handle of one of Manny and Guiding Light‘s biggest fans following in her family’s footsteps of Guiding Light fandom since 1939. This blog is an effort to make it easy to find Guiding Light and especially Manny online. Check back here for her blog, find fanfic previews and fake WSPR newscasts on her YouTube, find podcasts that look back to old shows and audios of her fanfics on Blog Talk Radio, and finally follow her on Twitter and Facebook.
