Ok I'll start. She is my favourite all time character period. I love her. BH is a truly beautiful lady.
I like her because it seem that she is the only character that can keep it real. She can admit when she is wrong. She can lie like everyone else but the difference is she actually have a conscience about it and you will she her going through the guilt, the shame and the self-blame and you see the toll it takes on her.
I love her ability to stand back and call a spade a spade and if she is not able to be objective then refrain. She is able to rise above her own crap and be a bigger a person, as life sometimes requires in the real world. We actually see her taking care of her kids, struggling with doing the right thing, the self-doubt that plagues all mothers from time to time, wondering if she is raising them right, struggling with finances and holding it together, facing single motherhood with trepidation and courage, that’s real and its nice even in the SOAP world to see a bit of reality inserted.
We see the complexities and the multiplicity of identities we all have, mother, sister, grand-daughter, aunt, woman, lover etc. We see the woman in her rise in passion and pain. She is a real as a character gets in a SOAP.
