Does Taylor Hayes Deserve Sympathy Over Thomas’s B&B Lies?

Is there any room for sympathy for the good doctor?

Bold and the Beautiful Taylor Hayes

It seems like Taylor Hayes will suffer the fallout from Thomas Forrester’s lies on The Bold and the Beautiful. She’s not the only one since Brooke Logan lost her marriage over it, and Ridge Forrester came out looking like a fool for not trusting his wife.

The Bold and the Beautiful Polling

It may be easy to overlook Taylor (Krista Allen) as one of the victims of Thomas’s (Matthew Atkinson) lies. However, she is also dealing with the consequences, so does she deserve sympathy?

Taylor Hayes Knew

No, say 62% of you. The reason? Taylor knew the truth, and she decided not to tell Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) until after she walked down the aisle and said her vows. This was even after she’d promised always to tell Ridge the truth, and the very first time she had a chance to, she failed to do so.

Considering that Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) actually wasn’t lying, her concerns about Thomas were legitimate, and she did nothing wrong, the majority of you don’t feel much sympathy for the world-renowned psychologist. She should’ve known better (and perhaps she shouldn’t have married a man who had just parted ways with his wife mere days before her wedding).

A Sorry B&B State

Still, a strong 29% of you feel that Taylor deserves just as much sympathy as Brooke. Sure, she knew about Thomas’s deception, but she didn’t know for very long, so it’s not like she kept some big secret for weeks or months. She’s a victim of her son’s lies just as much as Brooke, and you absolutely feel sorry for her in this situation. Perhaps you hold more blame for Ridge, and you certainly blame Thomas for this mess.

It’s A Maybe For Taylor Hayes

For the remaining 9% of you, maybe you feel sorry for the good doctor. You’re not quite sure how all this will play out, so you’ve decided to reserve the right to have some sympathy for Taylor — depending on what happens in the coming days and weeks.
