B&B: Tay­lor And Reese Kiss

Soap Opera Digest - - LATE-BREAKING NEWS -

■ Af­ter yet an­other con­fronta­tion with Brooke, Tay­lor vents to her new con­fi­dant, Zoe’s dad, Dr. Reese Buck­ing­ham — and things take an un­ex­pected turn. “Tay­lor has had it up to here,” says her por­trayer, Hunter Tylo. “First, it was Liam’s re­ac­tion to her re­turn. As Tay­lor ex­plained to him, she was only ex­press­ing her feel­ings to Hope, but he put his own spin on it and told ev­ery­one that she was about to at­tack his wife. Then, of course, Brooke had to get in­volved. Peo­ple are try­ing to take away Tay­lor’s pres­ence — and when it comes to her grand­daugh­ter, that does not go over very well.”

As Tay­lor laments the an­i­mos­ity she is fac­ing, she finds a sym­pa­thetic ear in her new friend. “Be­fore I even go into this, I have to say how happy I am about hav­ing an out­side char­ac­ter com­ing in to stir things up,” smiles Tylo. “This story needed that; it re­freshes ev­ery­thing. It blows new life into the Tay­lor/brooke ri­valry — and for Wayne Brady [Reese] to be that per­son? Oh, my gosh! Brad [Bell, ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer/head writer] didn’t have to do one bit of con­vinc­ing. When he asked if I wanted to par­tic­i­pate, I told him, ‘I will be there!’ ”

Tylo feels Dr. B. is just the friend that Tay­lor needs: “They met at St­effy’s party,” Tylo notes. “He showed up with daugh­ter Zoe, and Tay­lor im­me­di­ately felt com­fort­able with him. She found him to be charm­ing and sweet and most im­por­tantly, con­cerned. He was kind to Tay­lor from the get-go, and they started to cre­ate a bond. Now, we see the re­sult of that.”

In­deed. Even af­ter Tay­lor bends Reese’s ear about Brooke, he re­mains in her cor­ner. “Liam ap­pears to have set in mo­tion a re­peat of Ridge and Tay­lor and Brooke, and to her, that’s like, ‘Oh, no! We are not go­ing through this again.’ Tay­lor sees Liam’s wishy-washy ways and thinks, ‘I’ve lived this,’ and she knows that as a psy­chi­a­trist, none of this is healthy be­hav­ior. That’s when Reese comes in. He un­der­stands Tay­lor’s point of view. Reese un­der­stands Tay­lor’s mo­ti­va­tions and she’s like, ‘Fi­nally! Some­body gives a darn about me!’ ”

The two then share a kiss. “The kiss is the cul­mi­na­tion of all that, and so much more,” pre­views the ac­tress. “It’s re­ally sweet!”

“She’s like, ‘Fi­nally! Some­body gives a darn about me!’”

Some­thing New: Tay­lor (Tylo) makes a con­nec­tion with Reese (Wayne Brady).
