Katie doesn’t need to follow Bill and Brooke – she just uses her cellphone and a nifty little app.

Scared that your sister is out to snatch your man? Don’t go looking for a private investigator to follow them around all day – this isn’t the 1940s. Just take out your phone like Katie Logan-Spencer (Heather Tom) does on Thursday 16 March to track Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) sneaking around in real-time with Katie’s husband Bill (Don Diamont).
SHE’S GOT YOUR NUMBER
Katie isn’t exactly being paranoid because Bill tells her that he’s leaving the office for a meeting on Thursday – one that his efficient secretary Alison (Theodora Greece) doesn’t have on his day planner. And on Friday 17 March, an irate Katie tells Bill’s son Wyatt (Darin Brooks) that while his dad always keeps his phone locked up tight because he enjoys his secrets, her sister is a lot more, shall we say “loose”, with her phone. And where could Brooke be? Katie matter- of-factly tells Wyatt, “I know where your father is. He’s at home. With my sister.” And Katie watches as Brooke stays at her house with Bill, then she asks Wyatt, “Is there an app that would tell me what room they’re in?” Since technology doesn’t stretch that far, Katie hops in a car and races home, where she walks in on Bill and Brooke having a top-secret discussion about Katie’s problems with alcohol.
RINGING THE CHANGES
True to form, Bill instantly goes on the offensive, accusing Katie of sneaking in the back door so that she can spy on him. As Katie points out though, it’s her house, she lives there and can use any door the likes. And when Bill tells her that he wouldn’t bring his mistress in their family home, Katie agrees… but she notes that Brooke would have no such scruples. And Brooke had better look out, because Katie won’t just be handing Bill over to her. Isn’t it wonderful how technology is bringing families together?
Move over, Big Brother – curious Katie’s keeping an eye on her hubby and sister.
Caught out by an app – Bill and Brooke will have to try harder.
