"People always walk up to me and say, 'Your daughter is horrible to you,'" chuckles Valerie Wildman (Fay). "I know that Ari [Zuker, Nicole] would tell me that even at the Soap Opera Digest Awards party, when she came out of the bathroom, these women were really getting angry with her for treating her mother so badly. She was the person who was the sweetest to me the moment I arrived. She's funny, she's a tomboy, she's the complete opposite of Nicole, and I sort of emphatize with her because I notice that when I tell fans that she's so sweet, they've gotten mad at me for saying that."
