There’s nothing soap opera fans love more than sinking their teeth into a good old-fashioned dispute. Conflict, scheming, and confrontation deliver plenty of drama.

12. Summer Versus Lola (Y&R)
As with most female rivalries in soaps, Summer and Lola didn’t get along thanks to their mutual adoration for a man… in this case, Kyle.
