What’s in a Name? If David Gregory, A Lot.

At first glance, the headline would make you think you’d been transported to an alternate universe.

David A. Gregory voted best soap hunk in poll!

The Meet the Press host does have a flair for the (mello)dramatic, and his delivery (mostly the content) does leave a lot of viewers wanting more. But a “hunk”?

Hearing David Gregory referred to as a hunk begs the question, “Of what?”

But upon closer examination you notice the “A” and think, hmm.

Turns out it’s not NBC’s David Gregory, whose middle name is Michael, and while his wife, no doubt, thinks her salt & pepper haired (mostly salt these days) husband is a “hunk,” the soap opera world has its own David Gregory and that’s who won the poll.

This David Gregory, the one with the all-important “A,” plays Robert Ford on the ABC soap opera One Life to Live.

Still, there must’ve been a moment of self-pride when David M. Gregory got the Google Alert with that headline in it.
