    Anything... (CBS)
    "B&B" Breakdown
    Week of April 8 - 12:


    It was a fairly dramatic week of "B&B" what with the emotion and confrontations at the hospital. The wedding-related story at week's end was a nice lift.

    Everything's different now.
    The week kicked off with many trying to shake off the 'ugh' factor of Brooke and Bill hitting the sheets mere moments after Katie washed her hands of him. I think what added insult to injury was the afterglow bit, since they appeared to have no guilt, or a thought at all for Katie. Wild! At the hospital, they seemed almost as concerned about whether they were going to get blamed, as they were about Katie's prognosis. I loved the vintage Brooke moment where she sat at Katie's bedside and tearfully professed her love, saying, "I'd do anything for you." Hehe. Yep, anything but stay away from her husband when she asked you to! The Bill/Taylor snarkfest was pretty good too. Anyway, I expect Katie will wake up and asks Bill to try again - thereby throwing another triangle into being. Gah.


    Clash. (CBS)
    Dazzled.
    Caroline has become part annoying, part hysterical. She was a hoot at times this week. Her surprising attraction to the, er, musculature of Hercules the adult film star, was unexpected and pretty funny. She's had a few good one-liners too - her mocking baby-voiced condemnations of Maya absolutely make me snicker. This girl definitely changed completely after she fell on her head. So, what's Dayzee's excuse? I could live with them altering one character's personality for the sake of a storyline, but two is excessive. It will be interesting to see how these two react to Maya becoming the face of Hope For The Future. I love the idea and also love what it will stir up. I hope Thomas doesn't get that starry-eyed look when he sees their new spokesmodel! What do you think of Rick hiring Maya? Let Soaps.com know by voting in our B&B Rick's Decision poll.

    Wedding plans.
    I enjoyed the happy-go-lucky in love scenes with Liam and Steffy this week - it was a welcome contrast to the nastiness going on over at the hospital. That said, I don't know why either of them would want to get married where he had planned to marry Hope. As for Hope and Taylor's clash - all I could think was that Hope was so determined not to run into Steffy that she asked her to quit her job, and here she was telling Taylor she's not going to go out of her way to avoid Steffy and Liam. Craziness! I hope that eyeful Hope got of Steffy and Liam kissing and so on will help her (and us!) finally move on.

    Liam should be with a good girl & not Steffy. Liam only went for Steffy cause that was the only way for $ Bill to keep her in his life. It seems the writers are repeating Brooke & Taylor history that is old. we need to see some happiness in the new aging times. Hope & Liam gives me reasons to watch, maybe they can be the next Stephanie & Eric. The Logan's have gotten nothing but the bad end. It's time for a change, writers please let them rise. If Hope had not told Liam to marry Steffy he wouldn't be doing it

    I hate that the writers are trying to make the viewers forget that Eric is Steffy’s grandfather, and has been since the day she was born. Taylor calls him Eric to Steffy, Steffy calls him Eric and Eric doesn’t even act like he’s part of her family anymore. Sorry, writers, but we all know Eric was Taylor’s father-in-law (just like he was Brooke’s), and Steffy’s “granddad.” And that both Taylor and Brooke have been involved with Eric, Ridge and Thorne. And that Taylor even had a thing with Rick. Face facts, writers, you can't make it all neat and nice.

    Taylor and Steffy are sounding awfully like Brooke and Hope with their “perfect epic wedding” talk. It was ugh with Brooke and now it’s ugh with Taylor.

    Steffy and Liam were sweet with their pre-baby talk and wedding planning fun.

    Why does Taylor care what Hope believes about Steffy and Liam getting married? Hope believes it’s because of the baby, Taylor believes it’s because they love each other. To each his own! Taylor has to stop acting so threatened by Hope’s existence. Steffy doesn’t seem to mind and besides she has all the power now. Hope needs to move on, and not with same-old Oliver. Bring in someone new. Or send her to France.

    Brooke is disgusting. Caroline is a cartoon character. Dayzee went from welcoming and tolerant to spiteful and mean. Maya is lovely, but not sure Forrester wants to take her on as their next big thing considering she just got out of prison. None of it was her fault, but the PR could be horrendous for a company trying to climb out of the basement.

    Totally agree Kelly1. Here in Australia I just watched Taylor go from Hope telling her what to/not to do at Liam's, to going to tell Brooke what to/not to do!!!! Go to Hell! B****! So sick of her. She is so damned smug and sanctimonious. For me, she is the villain of the show. She interferes where ever she rushes to do so. How dare she tell Hope she shouldn't be there!(In the pool: U.S. eps) Rick lives there for Gods sake!

    I like watching Hope, I wish the writers would give her a break. Too bad they've made it such a mess where she doesn't have her mother to support and protect her from Taylor's attacks and belittling remarks. Oh, they sure made it so Taylor can be there for Steffy. Where is Hope's support? The writers has given Taylor such an upper hand on Brooke that looks like there's no way Brooke can concentrate on helping her daughter through this rough time. I would think, over the years of all the mistakes Brookes has made that they would've made this character know better. How can this highly educated and talented women doesn't have any common sense? Come on writers, stop making Brooke the bad guy repeating the same old boring storyline. It's time for her to have creditability. Stephanie in her last days begin to see that she wasn't that selfish and opportunist person after all. It's time for her to stand up for her family. How can a woman have such high regards for a man like Bill Spencer who degrades and disrespects her daughter? That to me is disgusting. All the while he can be all 100% for Steffy.

    Bill and Katie lied thru their teeth when Katie confronted them. Unfortunately, Katie may take him back and the lustful scences of forbidden love will have to be endured by the viewers. Dayzee is a Forrester by default. It was a stupid storyline for Eric to adopt a grown man. If any name change took place, it should have been to his real father's last name. I think Day

    Hope and Liam being the next Eric and Stephanie LMFAO. Hope can be the next Pam or like her mother that would be believable LOL.

    Give Hope a break? A break from our screens for crying and yelling she was robbed? The girl is a immature little brat who wants what she can't have or used to have. She can't get over the fact that Liam moved on with Steffy when she said, in her own words, "she gave Steffy/Liam to you." The girl is a plain delusional loony bird with no feathers.
