Given that we’ve no new episodes to discuss this week, I thought it was time to delve into the archives again and examine another character from the Bay’s glorious history.
If Rhys had an anger meter it would go up to 11, and rarely drop below 10. He moved to the bay with his wife Shelly and his family many years ago. They took over the caravan park. Rhys looked a bit like a fish and was a pretty wooden character. I could never figure out why Shelly went out with him.
Rhys and Shelly had 3 daughters: the “twins” Kirsty & Jade and Dani. Dani was a bit of a moany hole. She went out with Will Smyth until she realised that he wasn’t the Hollywood star of Independence Day and Men in Black. She then went out with Josh West who was a tool. Then she was raped by Kane Phillips. Back in those days, they used to say “attack” rather than “rape”. Kirsty found this irresistible and eloped with her sister’s rapist. All of this drove Rhys off the edge and he had a rage stroke.
Shelly left him to nobody’s great surprise. But he soon ended up with Beth Hunter, to everyone’s surprise. She was a living saint and was a good influence on the raging Rhys. She told him to keep his temper in check or he’d be kicked to the curb. Alas her wholesome ways weren’t enough for dumb ass Rhys and he left Beth once home wrecker Shelly appeared back on the scene. I don’t think too many tears were shed in the bay the day he left. Thankfully, he’s never come back.
