Katherine Chancellor & Joann Curtis
In 1976, Joann Curtis (Kay Heberle), the overweight and emotionally isolated wife of college professor Jack Curtis (Anthony Herrera) was enmeshed in turmoil. Jack had abandoned her for an affair with his student Peggy Brooks (Pamela Peters Solow) and was rejecting Joann’s reconciliation attempts at every turn.
Shattered, Joann sought comfort with her attentive friend Brock Reynolds (Beau Kazer),
Katherine Chancellor’s (Jeanne Cooper) son. After Jack sued her for a divorce, it wasn’t Brock who Joann turned to for support, it was Katherine. Developing a deep friendship with each other, Katherine took Joann into her mansion and the women soon fell in love.
Katherine quickly became obsessed with Joann and spun a web of lies to keep Jack away. After Brock realised what was happening, he convinced Katherine that she was too possessive of Joann and she had to set her free. Sensing her son was right, Katherine broke up with Joann, ending their brief lesbian interlude and ultimately their friendship.
