Quote june65: And what is in it for Brooke, she makes her man happy.
Is it terrible for her to want to make him happy? To give him back what his father wanted him to have?
Katie's not exactly broke. She has plenty of money, and should be out there establishing her own company.
Katie does not have lots of money. In her divorce request she asked for 1% of Spencer publications. I do not know what the value of that 1% is but the only way that she would see any cash is if she were to sell her 1% and I do not think that she has any plans to do that. Then she has the salary that she earns as CEO. Katie does have a supply of very expensive jewellery that Bill has bought her over the years whenever he did something wrong.
It was Karen's idea for Katie to ask for some of Bill's share of SP. It was once again Karen's idea to appoint Katie as CEO. Katie accepted because at the time it was a life line that was being thrown to her. She needed to be needed. Did she take some pleasure in informing Bill that he was no longer CEO of SP of course as she is only human.
Katie has not been running SP into the ground as so many posters what to make out. She has been implementing changes that she wanted to make with Karen's blessing. When they say that the profits have flat lined that does not mean that the company is losing money but rather that profits have not increased. There are changes that Karen wants made and she is afraid that if she reinstates Bill at this time that the changes that she wants will be thwarthed. She wants to give Katie a little more time to see if the company can grow as a result of the changes. It would not surprize me to find out that Bill has been working with Justin behind the scene to try to thwart Katie.
Poster have portrayed Katie as power hungry. Just because Katie wished to continue as CEO of SP does not make her power hungry. It makes her a person who is pleased to have a demanding career. Eric has said that Ridge has to earn back the position of President so why does Bill not have to earn back the position of CEO at SP. Ridge and his children own 50% of FC whereas Rick owns 0% and Eric owns 37.5%.
Maybe Katie should once again offer Bill a position of Co-VP with Liam.
Brooke should have destroyed the papers as she implied to Katie but we know that Brooke kept the papers in case she needed them to control Katie.
