General Hospital (GH) spoilers suggest that many fans are attempting to paint Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) as some sort of saint in comparison to the devious Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier). The problem when trying to juxtapose these two GH characters is that they are just too similar!
General Hospital Spoilers – Carly Corinthos Is A Snake
There’s been this argument that, yeah, Carly used to be a horrible person. GH fans might even recall an episode where there was a whole discussion of past sins between Carly and Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros) up in the Crimson offices. During their talk, Carly and Nina talked about the fact that sure, they both had done nefarious, devious, wickedly nasty things in their respective pasts.
Sure, Carly and Nina both had lied, cheated, and stolen. Sure, Carly and Nina both have had mental issues … but, unlike Nelle, these women turned their lives around. GH viewers might remember Carly suggesting that Nelle lies when she doesn’t have to, steals when she doesn’t need to, etc. Right?
Well, this seems to paint Carly as a reformed sinner. Carly’s own words to Nina make it appear that she, at least, believes her own rhetoric. Now Carly isn’t perfect, of course, but hey! Carly is trying to live a better life and everyone knows that! The issue, however, is that it’s all a load of you know what.
GH Spoilers – Carly Corinthos The Crazy Criminal
There is simply no way that any GH fan can listen to Carly with a straight face as she rants and raves about Nelle and then watch her turn around and sing her own praises. It’s true that many of Carly’s past misdeeds such as obstruction of justice, threatening to kill people, theft, breaking and entering, blackmail, assault, attempted murder, sleeping around while married, tampering with evidence, all happened in the past. But, you know what? It was the recent past. All those crimes Carly committed happened just last year!
It’s not like any GH viewer can argue that Carly was evil back in the day, but now … oh now, Carly is an angel. In her feud with Nelle, just, for example, Carly has threatened Nelle over and again. Moreover, Carly has carried through on some of her warnings. Consider how Carly locked Nelle on the roof of General Hospital and simply left her to freeze to death overnight!

General Hospital Spoilers – Carly Corinthos Goes Too Far
Outside of the rooftop incident, Carly also talked with her good friend, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton), a mafia enforcer (hitman). Carly actually wanted Jason to “get rid” of Nelle. That’s not so subtle code for “please murder Nelle for me.” GH fans who are rooting for Carly over Nelle are just kidding themselves. Maybe they like Carly’s personality more. That’s fine. Maybe they think Carly is prettier, sexier, or maybe they think Carly is just a cooler GH character.
Those are emotional, subjective beliefs though. The facts simply don’t bear witness to the idea that Carly is a better person than Nelle Benson. Just watch! Should Nelle gain custody of Wiley Cooper-Jones (Erik and Theo Olson), GH viewers are going to see Carly descend to the depths of depravity of which they accuse Nelle.
