Quote Msbutterfly58: Katie went to Eric first
Brooke is only reacting to Katie trying to get Eric to fire her. If Katie can dish it out, she should be able to take it. She playing in the big league. I can't understand why it's ok for Katie to ask Eric to get rid of Brooke, but it's not ok for Brooke to ask Karen to fire Katie.
Brooke did try to be friendly with Katie, but Katie wants Brooke to be alone. That is why Brooke decided to start back seeing Bill. Both of them should be happy now. They have each others husband. If Katie stop pushing, Brooke will too.
If Katie don't want Brooke working with Ridge she should encourage Ridge to quit, not Brooke.
Katie went to Eric because Eric is trying to play matchmaker by trying to put Brooke and Ridge back together. She was calling him on his blatant attempt to destroy her relationship with Ridge. I do not recall Katie specifically asking Eric to fire Brooke. Yes I remember her telling Brooke that she should turn down the offer.
If Ridge was to turn down the Co-VP position where would he go? What would Ridge do? Some have suggested that he start his own company but this is a lot easier to say than to do. Ridge I guess could become Bill and sit around whinning that Brooke took away his job because she convinced Eric to support Rick over him. Katie did not have to convince Karen to support her over Bill because it was Karen that used Katie to get control of SP. People keep forgetting that Katie did offer Bill a position at SP but he turned it down because it was not the CEO position.
Where would Ridge go? Wherever he's been for over a year? Traveling around Europe finding himself, not being at FI, because Steffy said she didn't see him, and she HAS been at work. Ridge could have stayed at FC, but not as co-vice president. He could be head designer or whatever position he has now, he could have Thorne's old job in the basement. He had other options, he chose to work with Brooke.
Yes, Karen gave the position of CEO to Katie to stick it to Bill, it was personal decision Just like Eric offered the job of CEO to Ridge, it was a personal decision, not a business one.
I do not remember Katie asking Ridge to turn down the position, only Brooke. Why not Ridge? He turned down the position of CEO for Katie why not turn down the position of co-vice president? Why did Katie even ask Brooke? It is not Brooke's job to make Katie feel secure in Katie and Ridge's relationship. That's Ridge's job. Since one of Katie's whines about Brooke to Ridge was she acts differently around you than she does when you're not around, I guess she's not being a hypocrite and acting the same angry, vindictive, bitter person around Ridge that she is to others. Why wouldn't Ridge do what he could, and that means turning down the job, to make Katie feel secure?
You're right Bill did turn down the job Katie offered him. I guess Bill meant it when he said he won't work for her. Ridge however, with his remarks to Rick telling him that he won't answer to Rick as president, was just talking his big talk. I won't answer to Rick, but I'll be a co-vice president answering to Rick.
Katie and Ridge are perfect hypocrites together. As long as they have their mutual dislike/hatred/disgust of Brooke to keep them together.
