    Honey? (CBS)
    "B&B" Breakdown
    Week of January 21 - 25:


    Taylor was a presence this week, Katie let Brooke take the reins in her love life, the triangle continued, Dayzee met someone from her past, and it was open season on Eric.

    Things are different now.
    Are they? Taylor made the rounds on Steffy's behalf this week, very nearly giving her secret away more than once. Taylor's position on wanting Hope to respect Steffy's relationship is realistic, but also pretty ironic, given that mere months ago Brooke was delivering the exact same speech to her when the tables were turned. Just a hint of why we're so sick of this repetitious storyline. Bringing Taylor and Brooke's ongoing rivalry into it gives me a headache. Why do they keep attacking and blaming each other? The man is at the center of it all, and keeps it going by flip-flopping and being receptive to advances made by the woman he isn't in a relationship with at the time. The other woman can only cause problems if he allows it...

    We deserve this time.
    Every time there was a scene with Liam and Hope canoodling, I had to ask myself what the hell he was doing. He lives with Steffy right now. Both girls should dump him. If he was ready for a real commitment, he would have said a definitive 'no' to spending time with Hope despite the 'lies and deceit' being revealed, and remained steadfast in his feelings for Steffy. Do you think it's realistic for Liam and Hope to spend time together while Steffy's away? Vote in Soaps.com's B&B Spending Time poll.

    I want my baby!
    Why is Dayzee's past as an adoption facilitator such a big secret that she doesn't even want her husband to know? She was helping these women like Maya, right? It also seems totally out-of-character for Dayzee to want to keep a secret about anything she did - she's always been an honest, open book. Waiting for the blanks to be filled in on this one...


    Sign from above? (CBS)
    What's next?
    Does anyone else find all the dramatics surrounding Bill downing a shot of scotch a bit much? Especially given all of the things Katie's forgiven him for in the past that were far worse, not to mention the fact that she has never before so much as mentioned or appeared to even notice his drinking. If they wanted to drive a wedge between Katie and Bill so Brooke could have a turn with him, they could have come up with something a little more substantial. Also, having Brooke take charge of Katie and Bill's romantic life is weird given how close they became when Katie was out of the picture. All the better to make more 'stallion' references...

    It's raining women.
    Well, Eric had his hands full on Friday's show, what with Donna and Pam competing for his attention and Taylor showing up later. Realistically, I don't think Pam could stand a chance next to Donna and her honey...just saying. As for Taylor, it was rather insensitive to go over to Eric's and rant about Stephanie like she did. Stephanie's portrait falling down was cute - like a sign from above!

    Taylor is just flat out one hot mess. Granted, I always liked Brooke more than I did Taylor but I could respect Taylor for what she was supposed to be on this show: The goody two shoe character with strong morals ( ala like Hope but not quite as annoying) but now all Taylor does is going around sneering about "those Logans" which is especially ridiculous when talking about Rick considering he's more of a Forrester than Thomas and Steffy are.

    Taylor is just as bad as Steffy, and Brooke, Taylor going to be sleeping with Eric next. These stories are getting silly with everyone sharing men. Father, grandfathers, brothers sleeping with sister n law, sons ex. Getting really nasty...I am going to have to start looking at other programs. Every one need to locate their own man and stop all the crazyness.

    Taylor needs to grow up!! stop balming the Logans for her family problems. all these Steffy fans ask yourself is this the same thing that steffy did to hope every chance she got all the way up to their wedding day. Steffy is Second choice she alway as been, every time she came at him he told her I want Hope. I wish that they would not write this same story line the Brooke/ Taylor story NO!!! Steffy make a stand. Steffy you allow Liam to hurt you over and over and you wait the same way your mom did. Hope doesnt she makes a stand and then she comes back for him. Liam wants Hope. Having a baby will not make him yours,he will stay with Steffy but he will start to want out. No woman in their right mind will tell her man to spend time with a woman you know he's in love with just becaue you feel you have the upper hand that means nothing!! If we allow Hope and Liam to be togther they will break it off all by themselves they just keep coming back to each other because they need to see if they can do it.

    Taylor is one sick and nasty self-obsessed a-hole! Who does she think she is????!!!! She's not only disrespecting Eric in his time of grief, but deceased Stephanie and her lover/boyfriend Thorne who is their son by mouthing off, uninvited in their home, let alone her daughter Steffy who swore her to secrecy.
    Steffy is a fully grown woman, capable of running her own life.She doesn't need psycho mom advocating on her behalf! The ONLY reason, she's behaving like this, is that she is GREEN with jealousy of Brooke! Well, too bad, so sad, grow up Taylor and get a life of your own, instead of trying to steal Brooke's life!
    Brooke raised a very beautiful daughter, whom Liam fell in love with at first sight, and whom Liam always wanted to marry, so get over it!
    Steffy has concentrated her entire time trying to steal Hope's love life. She should have found her own man a long time ago, instead of trying to win over another woman's lover and now, technically her HUSBAND.

    Rick Forrester is Eric's SON and a proven businees man who successfully ran FC's European house in Paris, building a name for himself and keeping the House of Forrester on top.
    It is only fitting that he runs FC in LA because he has the qualifications and credentials, and experience and works well in a team! Thomas is an immature brat who can design, but has no idea how to use power. He ABUSES it, and therefore still needs to learn some lif lessons as well as business lessons. Eric made the RIGHT decision.

    Just end this stupid love triangle(Liam/Steffy/Hopeless), once and for all. its getting really boring and nasty. People on here sleeping with each other so freely, you never hear of anyone using protection or getting tested for HIV. this may be a soap opera but thats still apart of life catching STD's. there are other people on the show that need more air time, lets move on to that... i will stop watching this show soon enough.

    Taylor is one psychotic hateful b**tch. She calls herself a psychiatrist???? Where exactly did she get her degree from???When you are a psychiatrist, your patients talk to you in confidence, Taylor discusses hers with Steffy...who does that???? Taylor is so jealous because Stephanie gave Brooke her ring....it was Stephanie's decision who she wanted to give her ring to...and because Stephanie chose Brooke to be by her side when she was dying, Taylor hates Brooke for that too.....I think Taylor needs to see a psychiatrist myself. It is beyond me how views hate Brooke and love Taylor, when they are both alike. Taylor has been with as many men...so why hate Brooke more. Taylor is going to be getting involved with Eric romantically, I think that is totally disgusting. She is supposed to be with the son, Thorne, now she moves on to the father. Now tell me viewers, what is the difference between what Brooke did to what Taylor is doing????? I rest my case.
    Another point I would like to make is, it annoys me so much how Taylor keeps saying for Hope to respect Steffy's relationship. I would like to know when exactly did she ever open her bodged-up plastic surgery of a mouth to tell her own daughter to respect Hope and Liam's relationship....so it is ok for her and her family to do that, but it is wrong for Hope to try and get her man back....whatever Taylor. You and your daughter need to get a life. And it's always those Logans, funny how your own son was so in love and wanted to marry one.

    I forgot to mention, I think it is sick how Taylor is going to get romantically involved with Eric, her own best friend's husband, how sick is that. I thought she was supposed to be with Thorne....now again tell me, what is the difference between what Brooke did to what she is doing????? son to father....Taylor you need help, you are sick.

    Posted by karmau at Monday, January 28 2013 05:45 PM

    Sorry I guess I didn't realise I had already made that comment...apologies...you see what Taylor is doing to me....aaaarrrrggghhhh

    Posted by karmau at Wednesday, January 30 2013 06:28 PM

    It seems no one is posting any comments....I guess they have had enough with this silly show....the sickness of it all....I about to join you all too. I cannot believe how Eric just does everything Taylor says....jump- she says, how high- he says!!! ridiculous!!!! I cannot believe the way Eric is treating Rick, his own son just to please Thomas and Taylor. Has Eric forgotten when Thomas was in charge for a while that he was going to get rid of him, Rick and Brooke if they didn't support him? It is so sick the way Taylor is using Eric....then she says that Brooke is bad!!...look in the mirror your crazy pathetic woman. And while you are at it, you should get a life and stop blaming Brooke....If Ridge wanted to be with you, he would have chosen you...he chose Brooke because he loved and wanted her. Get over it. And I wish the Haze would stop blaming the Logans for their problems. Taylor, your family is not Forester for you to keep saying "The Logans". You only got the name because Eric adopted Ridge...Ridge is not a real Forest and neither are you and your children. I would also like to ask the writers to please make my wish come true by making Steffy go to the docs for a check-up on the baby and tell her she is not pregnant, the pregnancy test gave a false result.....please please please.
