As much as it pains me to type it – last week I was reminded why I used to want to slap Taylor upside the head. She and Ridge put Brooke on the spot about Rick, Taylor spouting, “your son is sick, Brooke. Wake up! He is psychologically damaged.” While this may be true, how can she be so sanctimonious? Taylor’s own son, Thomas, is undergoing psychiatric help for his demented arson and car bombing attacks. I mean, really, take a look in the mirror, girlfriend. Taylor’s own son is nuttier than a fruitcake, and if it hadn’t been for Rick’s invention last year she’d still be drowning her sorrows in LA’s finest door-to-door delivery vodka.
During Taylor’s lunch date with “world-renowned” quack James Warwick, ex-husband Ridge and fire-starter Thomas, it looked like someone might take some responsibility for their own actions. Alas, it wasn’t to be:
Taylor: "Sweetheart, you were defending my honor. I was the one who was all caught up in these feelings, and I -"
Thomas: "- you know, let's not blame ourselves. Let's blame Rick."
Yeah, great idea Thomas. Let’s blame Rick. In amongst the insanity that was Taylor/Ridge vs. Rick, Brooke at least came back with a zinger when Taylor accused Rick of having an Oedipus Complex:
Brooke: "When did you come up with this diagnosis? Before or after you slept with my son?" READ MORE
I wasn't able to get a wide angle screencap of Jackie (Lesley-Anne Down) watching as Owen (Brandon Beemer) began to strip on today's The Bold and the Beautiful, but from the expression on Jackie's face I knew I had to put it up as a "Caption This."
I'm trying to decide if she looks like a deer caught in the headlights, a mosquito mesmerized by a bug zapper or a lioness about to pounce on her prey. Take your best shot.
After winning out over The Bold and the Beautiful's Rick (Kyle Lowder) and One Life to Live's Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier) in our "Who Would You Lather?" poll One Life to Live's Brody (Mark Lawson) lost out to The Bold and the Beautiful's Owen (Brandon Beemer).
Now One Life to Live's Schuyler (Scott Clifton) is stepping in to take on The Bold and the Beautiful's Owen. Will Owen win another round or will Schuyler take him down?
Who Would You Rather Lather?
Now that The Bold and the Beautiful is beginning to once again resemble something deserving of being shown on television, you know, like Cops or Maury Povich, my creative juices are beginning to perk up about the show. This is in large part due to the hella-hot May/December romance jumping off between Lesley-Anne Downe (Jackie) and Brandon Beemer (Owen). Downe has always proven electric opposite a good boy toy, whether it be Eddie Cibrian (ex-Cole, Sunset Beach) or Sean Kanan (ex-Deacon, B&B), so putting the sexy cougar with a guy who could be Brad Pitt's dark-haired little brother was a no brainer.
