Why do you think that compared to her namesake, our Pamela, that Pamela Rebecca was such an evil bitch? I admit I did not like this character one iota from quite early on in the new show. I much preferred Elena. I do realise that's not a popular opinion but what made Pamela Rebecca so nasty? Even her father Cliff wasn't a 'nasty' character, for all his fights with JR and the Ewings. I'm no fan of Afton and find her horrid - is that where Pamela Rebecca's personality comes from? Or for those of you in the Afton camp, how can someone who is a Barnes, who -ok not by blood - was related to lovely Pam be so so horrible? Like she's proper evil. It went beyond the normal Barnes Ewing feud and was in nowhere near the same league as how JR would behave. She's just hateful. What made her so bad?
