Taylor Hayes is back on The Bold and the Beautiful and she’s not taking any prisoners! She’ll defend her daughter Steffy to the death if she has to! But let’s hope it doesn’t come to that because Taylor’s already died – twice!
Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo) was happily wed to Ridge Forrester (then Ronn Moss; now, Thorsten Kaye) when she went overseas to a conference wearing an outfit designed by her handsome husband!
Alas, the plane Taylor was due to be on crashed and once the label to her outfit was found, her loved ones deduced that Taylor had died in the crash.
In reality, she was alive, the “guest” of Prince Omar (Kabir Bedi) of Morocco, who had fallen in love with the beautiful stranger.
Taylor eventually returned to Los Angeles and reunited with Ridge only to split from him later. They reunited and Ridge and Taylor were living happily when Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) fired a gun, striking Taylor in the chest area during a reign of terror.
Gravely injured, Taylor died after sharing a sweet farewell with Ridge in the hospital. He reconnected with and re-married Brooke soon after.
Taylor returned as a ghost a few years later, but the characters who saw her must have imagined it all because Taylor wasn’t really dead!
Once again, Prince Omar was acting as “host” to Taylor, after he whisked her away from the hospital. Her body was replaced with a life-sized plastic double that subbed for Taylor in her open casket.
In time, Taylor escaped from Omar – again – and reunited with a stunned Ridge. Alas, he dumped her for Brooke, leaving Taylor to wonder where it all went wrong.
Now, Taylor’s back again, standing up for Steffy — and she’s not about to be deterred!
Are you glad that Taylor’s back? Let us know!
