DOPPELGANGER DUOS: MARGO HUGHES/MAUREEN BAUER
By Alina Adams
The fact that Mike Bauer was able to temporarily relocate from Springfield to Bay City, Cass Winthrop practice law on AW, ATWT and GL, and Chris Hughes hope to get a heart from his neighboring burg, indicates that all three soap towns exist in the same universe.
Which must make it terribly confusing for their citizens when they spot allegedly non-related people who somehow look awfully familiar (like, say, Mark Evans, Brian McColl and Grant Harrison. Or Annie Dutton and Vicky Hudson).
This week, we take a look at another such example:
Springfield's Maureen Bauer...
And Oakdale's Margo Hughes...
Not only do the ladies look alike, but they share characteristics like feistiness, stubbornness, a firm belief in right and wrong (though never to the point of rigidity), and husbands whom they usually adore, who adore them back... but who also have been know to stray on occasion. And accidentally father an illegitimate child (GL's Michelle, ATWT's Daniel), whom Maureen and Margo nevertheless grew to love as their own.
With all that in common, if they ran into each other (I know, hard to do with Maureen being dead, but let's pretend this happened before that... and before the women stopped looking alike, too), do you think Maureen and Margo could have been friends?
