Quote jilltidwell: Katie and Taylor ARE to blame. Why told Katie to plan all of the stuff in Aspen? It sure wasn't Bill and Brooke. She is one who wanted Brooke and Bill to take care of Will TOGETHER. She is the one who said she couldn't be a mother to Will. Taylor can't stay out of anybody's business. It is none of her business what Brooke or anybody else does/don't do. She needs to look at her own family. Steffy, Taylor, and Thomas all need help. She needs to look at her own family before she start judging someone else for what they do. So heart condition or not, I don't feel sorry for Katie.
And it sure wasn't Brooke or Bill who were worried about a very sick Katie. Neither of them did very much to find Katie and to get her the help that she needed. It was Brooke and Bill who had asked Taylor to talk to Katie because they realized that she was not all right before she left. Katie could not accept Taylor's PDD diagnosis because she was convince that she was going to die. If it was not for Taylor Katie would still have been out there wandering around either thinking she was going to die or all of her delusional thoughts would have brought on the heart attack that she was expecting.
When Taylor finally managed to convince Katie that she was suffering from PDD and managed to get her home I felt that Brooke and Bill were not really overjoyed that Taylor had managed to get help for Katie. Yes Katie was making every effort to bond with her child and in so doing was neglecting Bill's needs. Once again did Bill make sure that Katie was getting the help that she needed. I know he fired Taylor so I am not sure that he even knew that Katie was still seeing Taylor but he did nothing to try and find her another doctor. Katie would not have recognized that she was obsessing over Will so she would not have mentioned the problem to Taylor.
So Bill and Brooke both know that Katie is not thinking rationally but according to you they have no responsibility in how they of sound mind chose to handle the irrational thoughts of a women who is suffering from PDD. I can only guess that in all of Brooke's pregnancy she never suffered from PDD or she would have been a little more concerned about the sister that she professes to love so much.
Before placing the blame on Katie maybe you should try to imagine yourself in her shoes then tell me that you would accept ALL of the blame. Oh right you want Taylor to share the blame. So Taylor is to blame because she tells Katie the truth. I believe at the party was the first time that Taylor actually says Brooke and Bill crossed the line up until that point she only says that she sees that Brooke and Bill are becoming involved and this was also accurate. Taylor was not saying this because she hates Brooke but rather because she wanted Katie to be able to fight for her marriage. Taylor did not want to see Brooke break up Katie's family the way that Brooke had broken up her family.
