She joined Sharon Osborne, Aisha Tyler, Sheryl Underwood, Sarah Gilbert and Julie Chen on the series. With word that Sharon Osborne’s position may open, rumors are running rampant that Tom might be auditioning to fill the spot.
Tom revealed to Michael Fairman Soaps that she is enjoying playing the dark side to her character of Katie on B&B.
“I think right now she is in the throes of a very deep depression. It’s probably something she has been battling most of her life. It certainly came to the surface after she had Will. I don’t think this is unusual,” the actress shared.
“Katie has lived her whole life feeling this inferiority, and that doesn’t go away just because you marry the right man, and have a life you dreamed of. Those feelings are inside of you no matter what happens,” Tom explained.
“People deal with depression all of the time, and don’t always acknowledge it, or realize it. It sorted of comes to the surface, and then you realize you have an issue, or a problem, and then you either deal with it, or you don’t,” she concluded of her character’s struggles.
