Performer of the Week: Hunter Tylo (Taylor, The Bold and the Beautiful)

The scene between Taylor and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) was a long time coming. Yes, the two ladies had intense scenes before when they were fighting over Ridge, but Thursday’s episode was different. The usually composed Taylor had finally had enough. She unleashed her feelings about her best friend, Stephanie, choosing Brooke in the end and the horrible way she and her children has been treated by Brooke and her children.

“I’m tired of being disrespected Brooke!”

Taylor has been disrespected for a long time, and it was good to see her fiery side come out. Hopefully we will continue to see this side of her where she is no longer the doormat for Brooke, and when Ridge comes back I hope she will no longer be a doormat for him either.
