Pot Meet KettleBy Naomi Rabinowitz Posted: Mar 9, 2011
I realize that Taylor's view of her rival Brooke is very skewed on B&B, so I can understand her being upset at the idea of her son, Thomas, kissing his stepmother. Still, I wish that every time Taylor goes on a rant about how Brooke has made her way through the Forrester men, someone would sit Taylor down and be like, "Uh, honey, so have you!" I don't mind the characters themselves misremembering history; after all, I think that most of us are guilty of doing that in our own lives. However, I wish that there would be some acknowledgement of her past for the audience, who has been there through Taylor's relationships with Ridge, Thorne and Rick, not to mention her kiss with Eric. I also wish that that Taylor would show some concern for the fact that Thomas keeps kissing women without their permission (Brooke, Dayzee) rather than pinning all of the blame on her nemesis. There's no denying that Brooke is extremely flawed and often acts before she thinks, but Taylor isn't exactly a saint. What makes their rivalry interesting to me is the idea that they have more in common than they'd care to admit — and I'd love to see that explored rather than watch scene after scene of Taylor going on the rampage.
