I have been watching soap operas off and on since I was a wee lass — I’m talking as young as 2, when I watched the wedding of Luke and Laura on “General Hospital” with my grandma. Since then my interest in soaps has run the gamut of casual fan to full-on obsessive, and some of my earliest pop-culture crushes were the manly hunks gracing daytime TV. I will always maintain a small girl boner for the swarthy Maurice Benard (“Sonny Corinthos” on “General Hospital”), bearded sexy pants Robert Kelker-Kelly (ex-”Bo Brady” on “Days of Our Lives”), and the boyish Nathan Fillion (ex-”Joey Buchanan” on “One Life to Live”). But those guys have either moved on to new roles, left soaps entirely, or been replaced as the hunk du jour by younger hotties. Keep clicking to see the 12 hottest beefcakes on daytime TV today.
