Quote grandmarose: SWS, I saw some of those articles and I remember when Steffy and Thomas wanted their dad to get together with their mom when she came back from the dead, but Phoebe was extremely upset, she had formed a strong relationship with Brooke. Seems Ridge had to remind those two how much Brooke had done for them and they went to apologize to her. The ones that decided what was to happen was Stephanie with her fake heart attack and Taylor who didn't care that Ridge had a new life with Brooke and small children, all she cared about was what she wanted and got with the help of her best friend.
Love Brooke and I'd take her over Taylor any day as a mom. I wasn't watching during that period, but I remember when I started watching. A friend I went to school with got me started watching B&B, and she sure did trash Brooke when we watched the VCR recordings, but I was always drawn to Brooke and thought Stephanie was pure evil. But it seems believable that it happened that way, just as it happened with the berry incident.
I was curious about something. I watched when Katie and Nick had first gotten together, and if I recall, Bridgett wanted Nick to spend time with Katie because she always had a crush on him. At the time, she wasn't expected to live and that's when they conceived a child. I'm probably wrong on a few points, but, Grandmarose, is this the jest of it??
Smiley, Katie was dying and Bridget was trying to find a way to save her because her body was rejecting her brother's heart. Bridget talked Nick into spending time with her, they arranged for Katie to have her high school prom which she never went to and then Nick took her camping and that is when she got pregnant. Katie never meant to betray Bridget.
I think Bridget & Nick hadn't gotten married yet and it was after they got married by Katie, that Katie discovered she was pregnant and Bridget left Nick, and Katie lost her baby.
Short synopsis, because nothing is as simple as it seems.
