Oh ,what a great interview. How I loved that show, and watched the re-runs also years later, enjoying them just as much. I could never pick one SL as they were all great and too many to nail down just one.From watching the show all those years and hearing each woman’s account, I believe each one of them.


B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang Talks On 35 Years As Brooke: The Men, The Booze, The Rivalries

For 35 years, Katherine Kelly Lang has portrayed The Bold and the Beautiful’s longest-running female lead as Brooke Logan.  Lang, who along with co-star John McCook (Eric Forrester), are the only two remaining original cast members of the CBS daytime drama.

Last week, B&B celebrated their 35th anniversary with a special Brooke-standalone episode which featured the character and the key men in her life through the years.  The episode featured the returns of Jack Wagner as Nick, along with Winsor Harmon as Thorne.

While the show took a look-back at some Brooke history, Kelly is also involved in a current major storyline which finds Brooke seemingly losing the love of her life, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) back to Taylor Hayes (Krista Allen) who has returned to town.

All of this followed Brooke’s New Year’s Eve debacle where she fell off the wagon, thanks to Sheila’s (Kimberlin Brown) plot, and drank way too much alcohol and wound up making out with Deacon (Sean Kanan).

Now in a special conversation on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael about her thoughts on Brooke’s current predicament (thanks to Sheila!), what it was like to have the 35th anniversary episode centered around her character and working with Wagner, Harmon, McCook, as well as Don Diamont (Bill), and of course, Thorsten Kaye for the milestone show.

In addition, Lang reveals what she thought of some of Brooke’s other hook-up foibles including the time Brooke confused Oliver Jones for Ridge, while they were donning masks at a masquerade party.

For years, Brooke’s nemesis, Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery) dubbed her, “The Slut of the Valley”. The character often still has that dubious title thrown at her by various characters on the canvas and most recently, Sheila Carter.  Kelly shares what she thinks of the use of that phrase through the years, and much more in a candid and insightful interview.

Check out the full conversation below, and then let us know, who has been your favorite romantic pairing for Brooke through the years?  What do you think will happen now that Brooke has a feeling that something else transpired to make her drink again? Share your thoughts in the comment section
