Nearly a year ago, I wrote a post lamenting soap-operas' troubling tendency to reform bad girls into good girls via rape. A reader took offense with my interpretation. Anyone who writes regularly is used to that. But this particular reader happened to be actress Alicia Coppola, who won a Soap Opera Digest Award for playing Another World's Lorna, one of the characters I name-checked in my piece.
She wrote a very heartfelt, very gut-wrenching response. Read it at my latest for Entertainment Weekly: http://community.ew.com/2015/06/16/alicia-coppola-jericho/
