Taylor Shakes Her Booty For Eric on The Bold and the Beautiful


Taylor (Hunter Tylo) and Eric (John McCook) dined and danced to candlelight and saxophone music, in one of the most disturbing sequences I've ever witnessed on The Bold and the Beautiful. I don't know what to start wiping down with bleach first, that horn, or my television screen.  


Bill (Don Diamont) and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) plotted to get her back at the top of Forrester Creations, while Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) listed her condo. Liam (Scott Clifton) may have choseN to be with Steffy and their baby, but there was a hint of worry in his expression at the news.

He told Steffy he wanted to be with her, but like all things on The Bold and the Beautiful, I doubt his vows will last long.

After leaving Brooke, Bill rode over to Liam and Steffy’s house like a motorcycle Santa. He was practically a one-man baby shower. This guy was ecstatic about the impending parasite’s arrival.

    “….the impending parasite’s arrival”

    Priceless description of Steffy’s pending Bundle of Joy. lol

    Poor, sad, desperate Taylor.

    Isn’t there even ONE eligible man under the age of 80 in
    the ENTIRE city of L.A.? Has she ever tried offering free food
    to homeless men or writing to prisoners on Death Row???

    Taylor is in desperate need of a shrink. I’m sorry but this woman has gotten so desperate. Still judging like she’s so much better when in fact she had them all too. Now going after Eric!? She has become a ho – without a doubt.

    I don’t know what it is with Brad Bell that he always wants to write sick “love stories” like this. It’s very disturbing.

    Oh I remember ten years ago when I got home and couldn’t wait to watch B&B. Back then they had a great teen cast, the stories were brilliant … where is that show????

    Bell has some of the most talented writers on Daytime in his team. And the show is so bad. How is that possible???

    I still don’t find this any more disturbing than Brooke and Eric.

    And personally, I find Brooke to be the biggest hypocrite of them all. In TODAY’S episode, she was standing at the door, and after figuring that someone was in there with Eric, the first name she called out was “donna” with a slight grin on her face.

    Yet when she found out it was Taylor, she got hysterical…because Eric is “grieving”. So I guess he wouldn’t have been grieving had DONNA or PAM or ANYONE but Taylor been in that room? Girl please….Brooke is a mess.

    Disgusting.

    I bet the DC gang is going to use this picture over and over and over again, just for people’s gagging reactions! :D

    But really, this is almost as bad as Sharon & Victor.

    The thing is Brooke always was the way she is. Brooke always saw things in her own way. Always had her own rules that applied to others but not to her. Brooke’s a hypocrite since she has found her soulmate in three different guys and counting.

    And Brooke and Eric is something else. Don’t forget that Eric is Brooke’s first husband. That she has two children with him.

    I feel it’s also kind of sad that with this completely stupid behavior of the Taylor character, people have to call Brooke out for her “sins”. Brooke IS that ho … Taylor, well she at least used to be something else.

    Absolutely awful! At least Eric and Brooke have been together before, but Taylor, yuck! I wished after Brooke left the photo of Stephanie would’ve fell off the wall again and would scare Taylor into having nighmares. Need to bring Stephanie back to haunt the halls of the place and scare Taylor away.
    This show is going to have to get better or I’m going away.

    It’s not necessarily that I like or am interested in a Taylor/Eric pairing. In fact, I’m just as disgusted by it as everyone else….it’s just that I don’t see how in the world people can call Taylor “crazy” and this and that for doing what Brooke has been doing since the show’s inception.

    Because she’s always lived by her own rules, does that make her less crazy than Taylor? Which is crazier? The one who once HAD sense but now sees that playing by your OWN rules gets you ahead….or the one who never HAD sense, but goes around town judging everyone else? My answer is, they both are equally crazy!! Because at the end of the day, right now, both Taylor and Brooke are showing signs of being crazy.

    The only reason I brought Brooke up in this discussion is because on today’s episode, like I said, it was Brooke who was judging Taylor and Eric, saying it’s disgusting, blah blah blah…and how it’s so wrong for Eric to be doing this while he’s grieving.

    Yet this is the same chick that less then five months ago had her tongue down her sister’s husband’s throat because she was apparently “grieving” over Stephanie’s death.

    That’s my problem with this show. Taylor is being written to be crazy, and I get that. She’s been slowly but surely disassembled since her 2005 return, and in my opinion, she was brought back solely to whitewash everything that Brooke had done, and make Brooke the heroine of the show, which if we all be honest, she never was prior to 2005. Yet, by making Brooke the heroine, not only have they killed the passion, lust, and fire that was Brooke Logan, but they’ve made her hypocritical. She can’t realistically call foul on ANYONE’s behavior, because there’s very little in the world that Brooke hasn’t done. So it just frustrates me to have to listen to Brooke spew all this crap at Taylor and Eric, when in reality, she was only upset that Taylor had beat her to the punch…

    I say this…Brad Bell needs to just go full speed ahead with making Taylor the manipulative bitch that people accuse her of being already. Because he has her doing the deeds, but her way of thinking and rationalization is what makes her seem crazy. She can’t honestly have fallen in love with her children’s grandfather overnight like that. It’s just not plausible. So if they wrote Taylor as being with Eric so that she and her children can get ahead in the company, i’d be all for it. THey’e already ruined the character, so why not take it all the way and make it interesting?

    I admit that I’m a hypocrite. I allow for Brooke’s nonsense because I like the character. Conversely, I’ve always found Taylor to be a boring, self-righteous victim who needs to take the advice she so generously gives everyone else.

    Brooke and Taylor are both bimbos, but they’re easily pushing 50 now and it’s just too ridiculous. Almost as much as Tylo’s lips, which look like they’ve been gnawed on by leeches.

    So, Team Brooke! Although they’re both meh.

    OMG…I cant even understand that Eric nor Taylor can see that this is wrong…Eric even called nit love, I think thats just plain stupid. There is no build up whatsoever to this so called romance.
    I liked Brookes reaction today. She genuinely cares for Eric, thats obvious.

    Another thing that I can possibly understand that Thomas and Steffy are applauding this. The kast 5 years, Steffy tried to push Taylor to Ridge the minute she had the chance. Is it really plausible that they accpeth their grandpa as stepfather without doubting? Idiots…

    My problem with Taylor is her holier than thou attitude.

    She, like Brooke, has a sense of entitlement. She complains about Brooke going through the Forrester men. They’ve now shared Ridge, Thorne, Eric, and Nick of the Forrester/Marrone clan and she’s been with Brooke’s son (a third Forrester generation) and was she with Brooke’s father? Has she ever broken up with Thorne? Seems like she just mowed down Darla, dated Thorne but not bothered to say anything to him before she moved on to his Daddy.

    Her perfect children are soooo victimized with Thomas having shot Rick and thrown him out of a window, lying about an affair with Brooke to bust up Brooke’s marriage, and her daughter blackmailing Bill for the company and having an affair with them.

    Her resentment of Brooke being there at Stephanie’s end is completely selfish.

    I know Brooke has plenty of faults, it’s just Taylor’s attitude that Brooke is the slut of the Valley and her children are terrible when Taylor is actually right down there in the mud with her that gets me.

    IMO, Brooke and Taylor were both root worthy because of their differences. Brooke used her sex appeal and brains to get her man, while Taylor was beautiful, smart and classy. Both women have effed their way through each others exes and male children! :Sp It’s not only nasty, but disturbing as hell.

  12. Profile photo of soapjunkie88

    Taylor dated three generation of Logan men (Stephen, Storm and Rick) and now two generations of Forresters (Eric and Thorne) and has been with both Marone boys (Nick and Ridge). And with the character, with the entitlement and this judgmental behavior, yeah it’s different than with Brooke.

    BTW, it would have been more understandable if Eric would be with Donna at this point. Eric and Donna have been married. They loved each other. I didn’t like the pairing … but it would have been understandable. So yeah, I get Brooke’s shock that Eric now is suddenly falling for Taylor and the other way around.

    This pairing is just pretty disgusting and for Taylor goes the same thing that I’ve said about Sharon all year last year, a character that has been created as a heroine shouldn’t behave like this. You don’t turn a character like this into a crazy person that sleeps through families. That part is for the vixens, who are on the show to shock with their bedroom stories.

    Brad Bell should finally get his act together. Not just for an Emmy reel but for 52 weeks a year. Would be nice.

    I remember when Eric put the moves on Taylor one time after she and Ridge went their separate ways, and she shut him down right quick! I guess now that Stephanie is dead, BB decided to go ahead with that nasty pairing. :Sp

    I agree that the problem between the Brooke/Taylor comparison is this is Brooke’s style, not Taylor’s. Ever since Taylor came into the picture in 1990, the setting was always that Brooke was the sexy, yet smart, manipulative kitten, and Taylor was the saint. That was always what the storyline came down to, and it worked.

    Occasionally Taylor might do something very out of character, like lying about Ridge’s child begin Thorne’s, when she was pregnant with Thomas. But even then, her rationale was that she couldn’t cause any stress for the baby, and she saw Thorne as the more secure option to keep her baby safe. So there was a plausible reason.

    Taylor shouldn’t be doing this because this ISN’T HER. And it shouln’t be her.

    And that is what has been wrong with the whole show ever since Taylor came back in 2005. Honestly, the last good, NORMAL B&B year was 2003. The slow downhill started at the times when Adrienne Frantz, Jennifer Finnigan, Sean Kanan & Justin Torkildsen left and Sydney Penny, Lorenzo Lamas, Jack Wagner and Lesley-Anne Down came on. Note: I don’t mean it started BECAUSE those characters arrived, and nothing against these particular actors, but those cast changes reflect that time well.

    On 2005 Bill Bell, Sr. died – may he rest in peace – and that was the end of the old, “golden” era of B&B as I had come to know it. Coincidentally, the same thing happened on Y&R. IMO the last good year, “the golden era” on Y&R was 2005. After that that show has never been the same either.

    And Taylor’s slow decline into the abyss of character assasination begun slowly after she came back. Alcoholism? Really? Now, after being presumed dead TWICE and kept in a coma and then prisoner for a total of three years, I can get why Taylor might be SOMEWHAT different and I can accept some flaws. But the show UTTERLY portrayed her as crazy, and Brooke as the sane, moral compass of the show. The final nail in the coffin was STEPHANIE of all people loving Brooke to no end and even though she and Taylor remained friends also, Stephanie was CLOSER to Brooke than Taylor towards the end? Sorry, I don’t buy it for one second.

    I am convinced that ALL of these developments are a result of Brad Bell’s weird, unhealthy obsession with the character of Brooke. I think he is totally in love & lust with the character, and by extension KKL, and has somehow lost touch with reality. As if he is writing his own “life” and if Brooke is hurt, Brad is hurt too. Maybe I’m taking it a bit far, but that’s how I feel. There is no other explanation for these developments.

    I am not sure where the fans are with this show these days. THere is only a sprinkling of positive reviews for whats happening on the show and YET… YET… the same stories are retold and the bad hook-ups done over and over again!

    For a half hour show that is actually 22 minutes long with a huge cast it puts out a whole load of CRAP every week!!!

    I figured they would stick Taylor to old Eric Forester; wow Stephanie has only been dead a minute yet they find the necessity for this? First she got stuck in Ridge hell now his daddy… Poor Taylor.

    Well…I always thought Hunter Tylo couldnt act since she came back in 2005. I always thought with her hysterical arm movements en screaming and shaking her head, that it was a serious case of bad acting…but I think Brad has been building up a storyline since 2005 and that Taylor is actually a real lunatic, and that Hunter Tylo actually still is the capable actress that she was before her onscreen dead. And now 7 years later, it all comes out that Taylor is on meds all this time and that she is actually crazy.

    That is the only explanation I can think off.

    I must say the look on Brooke’s face was priceless…”OH! MY GOD”. I thought Hunter was actually pretty good in scenes. I howled! I think it was Stoney that mentioned this is exactly how Brooke acted through B&B inception from Bill. So now the pump is on the other foot. ;)

    Brad’s hands are somewhat tied w\Brooke right now because she is still married to Ridge…recast him Brad…w\RJ as Jamey mentioned on Twitter w\Daniel Polo :)

    It looks like Brad might be resurrecting Oliver in more story which is very welcome to see. I’m enjoying B&B right now, not as much as Y&R but it’s the best 90 minutes on daytime TV on the dial. ;)

    Yes, they’ve shared many of the same men, but Taylor’s never, ever, listened to a man take her daughter’s virginity on the phone(!) and then turn around and sleep with him (!!) and then get pregnant by him(!!!) she has also never “accidentally” had sex with her other daughter’s boyfriend against a wall thinking it was her 50 something year old husband. Really? There is no comparison in actions between Taylor and Brooke when it comes to men.

    [Quote=twb6yz]Her resentment of Brooke being there at Stephanie’s end is completely selfish.[/quote] You really can’t understand why Eric and Taylor would have some resentment? Taylor was Stephanie’s best friend for decades just to get tossed aside in the last few years for Brooke. There were so many times Stephanie’s own family turned against her for things she did, particularly when she did something against Brooke, when the only person who stayed by her side was Taylor. Stephanie didnt even want her own husband with her at the end.

    [Quote=twb6yz]I know Brooke has plenty of faults, it’s just Taylor’s attitude that Brooke is the slut of the Valley and her children are terrible when Taylor is actually right down there in the mud with her that gets me.[/quote] That’s what Stephanie used to call Brooke because that’s what she is. Now she’s sniffing around her own sister’s husband. First it was Deacon who was with Bridget. Then it was Nick who was with both Katie and Bridget and now Bill. Really, who else’s husband or boyfriend is left? She’s already been with Oliver, her daughter Hope’s boyfriend. I guess the only one left is Liam since Marcus is her nephew.

    Let’s all remember when Brooke was with Eric he was younger. I love Eric, but he is not the stud he used to be even though he wants to be. I had hoped he would have grown past these stupid antics after he got back with Stephanie. Now we hear he and Stephanie were not intimate. Well, there is the excuse to do what he is doing. He is being manipulated because he wasn’t getting any so that is how they justify this mess. I am s sick of Taylor being holier than thou and justifying her actions. She is no better than Brooke. At least Brooke has grown as a person and Taylor is the new Brooke. I can’t even watch this mess anymore. Gross!

    I thought that Brooke showed TRUE AND ACTUAL reaction to seeing Taylor posing like that in Eric’s room. It was a ridiculous scenario AND EVEN MORE THAT B&B is pushing it down our throats without developing it first.

    They just kissed 2 weeks ago and now Eric is calling her the matron of the forrester clan at the same moment that Steffy and Thomas are doing it. I wish Thomas voiced concern over dating their grandfather and not “Eric forrester”. As far as it goes they are still his grand kids whether ridge is bio

    First I want to say Taylor looked great in that lingerie. I don’t care what work Hunter Tylo got she still looks good. With that said the Eric and Taylor pairing is disgusting.

    I don’t understand why Brad Bell would not bring back Jackie and have her and Eric be an item. All the romantic scenes he’s been having with Taylor he could do with Jackie and no one would have a problem with. What’s really silly is Brad knows the backlash Maria got from the Y &R fan base over the Victor and Sharon pairing. So why would he want to do on his show?
    This should be a rule for all soaps (daytime & prime time). You never pair two characters that have had a mother & son or father & daughter relationship. It never works.

    The way Thomas and Steffy were talking yesterday was ridiculous. First why are they calling Eric by his name and not grandpa. Yes Ridge is not Eric biological son, but they have always seen Stephanie and Eric as their grandparents since they been born. When Stephanie was alive they always called her grandma.
    Second they talking like Eric is some neighbor or old family friend. If that was the case the relationship would be a little more acceptable. If my mom got with my grandpa I would be grossed out.

    [quote=CapeEllieMay]I guess I’m in the minority, but I think Eric (John McCook) is handsome and sexy and I’m about 25-30 yrs younger than him. Sorry to rock the boat guys. lol[/quote]

    I agree for his age John McCook still looks good. If they would have paired Eric with any other woman not connected to the Forresters, Logan or Stephanie fans wouldn’t have such an outrage against this. If Karen Spencer wasn’t a lesbian and was single I would love to see her and Eric get together.

    tarpaz – That goes so well to showcase the ridiculousness of the “Error” pairing. They can’t very well say their “grandpa and mom” are dating, can they, lol! That’s what makes this so sickening and warped. Brad Bell HAS to know how awkward and disgusting that is, so he has to make the kids don’t accidentally call him “Grandpa” to make sure it doesn’t sound too icky. But it’s not gonna work!!!

    They did the same thing when they went for the Thomas/Hope pairing which was utterly weird, too. Before that they had Hope call Ridge “dad” but when Thomas shows interest in her, than BAM! – It’s “Ridge” all of a sudden. It’s so transparent, it’s almost funny. But only almost.

    ou are right Yorla, Ridge was dad to Hope for most of the show, now he is Ridge and Taylor’s children only knew Eric as grandpa, calling him Eric now is disrespectful. But the show is horribly written now, so what can we expect.

    Its by far the most discusting pairing ever. We have an old fool and a crazy arm waving, headshaking shrink with an IQ of 69. Its beyond me how Brad thinks he can get away with this pairing just to drive story.

    WIthout even the facts Yorla just named about the children, its the character of Eric thats also unbelievable in his role not to support Brooke. He did that the last 15 years. He was the only Forrester guy that never betrayed her or didnt support her.

    The fact that Steffy and Thomas react so unbelievably calm to all this mess, is just dumb and lazy writing. The show is getting worse every day. At least the triangle from hell shows consistency.

    It may disgust but you know you must gush about it. The show is good and it has improved. I can’t wait for a recast Ridge or the real Ridge comes back. Glad to see that tall cup of water Oliver back.
