All hail the new King of Romance! Huh? I can't believe it's not butter!


Apparently, unbeknownst to Trollop and me, millions of people have been voting online from March through May on who would replace Fabio as the new romance king for I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! (Not that Trollop and I would’ve voted... Hmm, come to think of it, maybe we would have! LOL)

The event, hosted by Fabio and webcast at, challenged the hunks to act out romantic scenes with members of the audience. A panel of romance experts including Fashion Emergency co-host Leon Hall, associate editor of Sports Illustrated’s annual swimsuit issue MJ Day, and bestselling romance novelist Eloisa James, judged the show.

So who is Fabio’s successor, you ask? Greg Vaughan, the soap star who plays Lucky Spencer on ABC’s General Hospital.

Unlike my sushi-addict Trollop, I don’t luuurve soap operas LOL, so my first thought was: Who the hell is this poor guy? Hence, I did a little research on him who will soon be serenading every butter-laving romance junkie.


Name: Greg Vaughan
Birthday: June 15, 1973
Birthplace: Dallas, Texas, USA
Eye color: brown
Hair color: brown
Hobbies: skiing, hiking, roller-blading, windsurfing, and horseback-riding; singing and playing his guitar
Pets: a labrador, Daisy


Additional info:
  • Greg was a model before he was an actor. He did some campaigns for Gianni Versace, Tommy Hilfiger, Banana Republic, and Ralph Lauren.
  • His first major acting role was on the prime time series Malibu Shores. He also had a role on Beverly Hills 90210, and made guest appearances on Baywatch, Buffy, and Will & Grace.
  • He appeared in the movie Poison Ivy: The New Seduction in 1997.
  • He was named as one of People’s Sexiest Men Alive in December 2002.
  • He played neighbor Dan Gordon, Piper’s (Holly Marie Combs) love interest, in the TV show Charmed.
  • He used to date his former Charmed co-star, Alyssa Milano.
  • Greg has a sweet tooth for cake.
This Greg guy is in no way close to MY Raoul’s level of hotness; still, I’ll say, he’s definitely a big improvement after Daddy-o Fabio, don’t ya think? (Did I seriously just say “daddy-o”? Oh god, *groan* kill me.)


“Fabio’s shoes will be hard to fill,” said heartthrob Greg Vaughan. “He truly exemplifies the fantasy and romance of the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! brand. I’m very excited to be crowned the King of Romance and can’t wait to be a part of the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! team.”

“I wish Greg the best of luck in becoming the heartthrob to thousands of adoring fans,” said the long-term romantic icon, Fabio. “He proved to be a true romance role model. But fans shouldn’t count me out yet. After all, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! is like family to me and family is never too far away.”


Thank the good lord we won’t be seeing the last of HRH Fabio!!! Whew, got worried there for a sec! In any case, for you, King Greg, here’s a big curtsy** (watching for my boobs not to spill out of my tight purrty corset). May you rule with twice the sweet cream buttermilk for even more fresh butter taste. Naturally cholesterol free, of course.

**I apologize for Trollop’s absence, your majesty. She’s still in our humble manor, laughing; apparently hearing your speech and keeping a straight face is beyond her, that heathen!

Casey, I couldn't picture him on GH but now that I remember him, you're right he is a cutie on the show. I haven't watched GH in awhile. When I do catch a soap I watch Days of our Lives (I know it's so rediculously stupid lately). I can't seem to let the show go. LOL.
Maybe I will stop by GH and check out the new Romantic Butter King :)

Oh Harlot, I was looking forward to another wanker party...

Anyway, I too know this guy! Neighbor Dan of Charmed! I loved him there. Too bad he only stayed for one season.

Okay, question: What does romance have ANYTHING to do with butter substitutes? *confused*

We'ell Hell-lo Hunnie! What a cutie-pie.
No match on my *Wanker* boy, but no harm in looking now is there?

Way cuter than Fabbio!

Now, I just have to tell you Greg darlin' ... just between you & me ...
" butter doesn't melt in MY mouth"

Himmm - I like Himmm & that last phote is the best. I'd rather he was made of Nutella than butter though. He would definitely get a good licking if so. *slurp*

Harlot, how could you think neighbor Dan is not hot? He's such a cutie! Loved him on Charmed.

I can see how being a Versace model would pale in comparison to spokesperson for a butter substitute.

As for Fabio, what does this mean? Does the bird who met its untimely death, because of him, beckon to him from the Great Big Rollercoaster in the sky?

i admit... he is good looking but you all know for a fact you can't have him. better go for the next best thing. when i like an actress, i go to webdatedotcom and look for someone who looks just like her. maybe you guys are better off looking for a guy who looks like him. i don't think he would be knocking on your doorsteps anytime soon. lol! just kidding ladies...
