Lauren (Tracey E. Bregman) may have had a brief fling with Carmine (Marco Dapper), but she eventually set the hunk straight about her feelings: She was still in love with her husband, Michael (Christian Le Blanc), and their affair had to end. The news only made Carmine fall harder, leading to a Lauren-obsession that Michael and Lauren’s son, Fenmore (Max Ehrich) didn’t accept kindly. When Carmine was shot dead in an alley, Fen was arrested for the crime. Lucky for Fen, it was later revealed that Carmine had faked his death in order to help the FBI imprison Richard Womack. Unlucky for Lauren, Carmine refuses to be forgotten, most recently sending her a postcard from Puerto Rico. Despite the setbacks, Michael and Lauren are stronger than ever — and even recently had a pregnancy scare!
