Quote JaNell36: Katie need to grow up and stop playing games. She lost.. move on already!
Yes she does. I'm tired of people bashing Brooke for things that she can't control. It was Katie and Katie alone who pushed them together. I can't understand how people think that Brooke should always take responsibility for her actions, but Katie always no matter what gets a free pass. I'm not saying that Brooke is perfect, but neither is Katie. She is using this PPD as an excuse to not to take responsibility for something SHE set in motion. She can't stop crying like a baby because she can't have what she wants. Has she ever thought about that Bill might not want her back because all she ever did after Will was born was push him away. Bill needed her to be a wife to him as well. But, instead of doing that she pushed him away. She thinks that she can do whatever she wants to other people and people are supposed to forgive her, but she won't forgive. She lives by a double standard.
I'm sorry but I whole heartedly disagree with you, first of all, Katie was ill, the entire time it was shown on screen this woman was mentally unstable. She could hear her heart beating loud as a drum, even her perception of the things around here were dark, warped and haunting. What was that FAKING?????? PRETENDING???? She woman was suffering, we all witness it every single day she pushed them together. katie was afraid of dying again, and since she was the only one on that show besides Taylor, that had to deal with DYING, I don't think none of them can speak on what she was going thur.
That along with the trauma of delivering a baby can bring to woman's life, is enough to make anyone break and loose concept of reality. Katie was making arrangements for after she passes away. We all heard her, she was preparing for people to take her place, that alone said how sick she was. Who makes plans for after they pass to that degree, getting a mother for her new born child, and a wife for her husband? She didn't do that out of malice, she had no malicious intent, as a matter of fact, she was doing a act of love for both Brooke and bill, thinking of both of them and not herself.
How on earth is that unselfish act looked upon as a malicious act that deserves being punished???? I don't get it, she did what she did out of love, and benefitted nothing from it other than having someone to care for her loved ones after she's gone.
YEAH hang her a$$, how freaking dare she do something as horrific as make plans for her family after she's gone. GMAFB!
I'm sorry I just do believe that she did know what she was doing. You can't use a disease like PPD as an excuse. Put it this way: my dad has had strokes he's ok now, but that don't give him the right to treat me any way he wants. Same goes fir Katie.
You're entitled to your beliefs, but it's documented scientific fact that women suffering from PPD is not in control of their mental state, and there are degrees to this disease, some even with the mother taking the life of her own newborn baby. So it does indeed effect your decision making abilities. And again, we saw for ourselves, they took the time to allow us a peek into katie's world, and it was warped and disfigured and that deafen heart beat going on constantly.
That proved how sick Katie was, so she didn't push them together while she was in her right mind. If you choose to not give her empathy or compassion for her suffering that's one thing, but you can't take away the fact she was suffering from a dangerous disease.
Katie was NOT sick when Brooke and Bill had sex the first time. She (Katie) had just once again thrown her rings back at Bill and declared the marriage was over. Whilst Katie was suffering from PPD Bill and Brooke did NOTHING about acting on what Katie was setting up eg trip to Aspen, hot air balloon rides;
It was the morning after the car accident when Katie arrived and Brooke and found that Bill had slept at Brookes house (and in her bed) but not with Brooke that Katies flew off the deep end and threw her rings back at Bill (yet again) and declared the marriage over then Brooke and Bill had sex.
After Katied had her attack and was coming out of her coma she once again asked for her rings back and Bill gave them to her and vowed to make the marriage work and they were on their way to doing that until big snoopy nose Taylor had to get her say into the whole thing
PPD only internsified Katie's issues. Katie was ALWAYS a nagging, demanding, control freak. PPD made that WORSE. And still that gave Katie NO right to play with Brooke and Bill's emotions and fragile state and then expect them to press a button and forget everything. People are not machines.
Brooke did everything in her power to help and support Katie and her marriage. If it wasn't for Brooke's support, the Batie marriage would have ended sooner. Bill was losing his patience when Katie, with no PPD anymore, refused to be a wife to him and was whining to him day and night, then kept walking out on him over and over again only to come crawiling back 5 minutes later. Most men would have left Katie long time ago, Bill was more than patient with her because of her heart condition, their child and Brooke's efforts.
Katie is totally incapable of being in an adult relationship, she doesn't know how to love, how to support, how to understand and appreciate, all Katie knows is draw attention to herself and guilt trip others to do what she wants.
Brooke and everyone else overprotected Katie all her life and as a result, Katie now things she can throw a pity party and everyhing will go the way she wants.
'' I don't want Bill, but I don't want you to have him either''.'' I will love you, only if you do what I want. I have all the excuses in the world for what I did, you have none.Do what I want, and i may start loving you back''.
Katie is a mess and wll always be a mess, because she loves it. Brooke put her in her place brilliantly. She knows her baby sister is all about empty threats, empty promises and fake performances''.
She went from portraying Brooke as the devil for ''stealing Bill'' to portraying her as an angel who was always there for her. You can't have it both ways Katie.
Brooke and Bill are here to stay, . Read Don Diamont's new interview on TV guide. Brilliant and totally spot on. He says everything more viewers say.
