The Bold and the Beautiful: Bill and Brooke’s Affair Exposed by Taylor!
Why was Bill in Brooke’s Bedroom?
A drunken Bill had been on his way home to confront Katie and Brooke about the nonsense going on between them when he had a car accident – with Brooke.
Noticing that an unconscious Bill was drunk (thanks to a drinking game with Katie) everything Brooke did next was to keep Bill’s involvement in the accident secret and away of police scrutiny. Brooke drove Bill’s car home to her place and hid it in the garage.
She put an injured and drunk Bill to bed in her bedroom and Brooke slept in the guestroom.
Katie Finds Bill in Brooke’s Bedroom
When Katie Logan Spencer found her husband, Bill, in her sister’s bedroom, half naked, and emotional and angry Katie slammed her wedding rings down onto the dresser in Brooke’s bedroom. Katie told Bill to go be with her sister, Brooke. They were much better suited than she and Bill ever were, Katie claimed. Bill and Brooke took Katie at her word.
Mere minutes after Katie stormed out of Brooke’s home, Bill and Brooke gave into the attraction that had been simmering for months. After all, they were already half naked and in Brooke’s bedroom. With Katie’s blessing (of sorts) there was nothing keeping them apart.
Bill and Brooke Make Love
So, Bill and Brooke declared their love and made love. Only to get word that while they were steaming things up in the Brooke’s bedroom, Katie had suffered a coronary event. Katie had been on her way back to confront Brooke and Bill more rationally but had had a turn in her car. When the paramedics arrived she was unconscious. When Bill and Brooke arrived at the hospital Katie was still unconscious and fiighting for her life.
Katie recovered and begged her husband for her rings back.
Brooke immediately told Bill his place was with Katie and his son and they agreed to keep their sexual tryst just between them. Oh, and that it would never happen again.
Brooke is Pregnant!
Then Brooke fell pregnant.
Brooke tried to convince Eric Forrester to leave Taylor and claim her baby as his own. They could have a wonderful life together (again) she told him going so far as to recreate their honeymoon. But Eric stood his ground and told Brooke she had to tell Bill and Katie the truth, regardless of what it might do to Katie.
Brooke Loses Bill’s Baby
Brooke had been about to do exactly that when she suffered an anxiety attack, hyperventilated and passed out. Bill and Katie rushed Brooke to the hospital where Brooke’s OBGYN did an ultrasound.
Brooke was still adamant she had to tell Bill and Katie the truth – that she was carrying Bill’s child. But Dr Caspary informed Brooke that may not be necessary. She was no longer pregnant. Brooke had suffered a missed miscarriage.
Bill and Brooke’s Secret is Safe
Bill managed to get some time alone with Brooke. He had know what Brooke was trying to do and asked what possible reason she could have for telling Katie the truth about their fling when they had agreed to keep it secret. No reason, Brooke told him. Not now.
And for a while it has looked like Brooke would get away with keeping both her affair with Bill and her subsequent pregnancy a secret.
Brooke, however, didn’t count on Taylor not being satisfied with a career where she is paid to butt into people’s lives, but also needing to dish out the service to her family and friends pro bono.
Taylor Exposes Brooke and Bill’s Affair
Taylor was suspicious that Brooke was trying to steal Eric Forrester away from her and began investigating. Not a bad guess since it had been Brooke’s plan to do just that.
Taylor’s snooping lead her to the conclusion that Bill and Brooke did in fact sleep together. She learns through snooping in another medicos files that Brooke had been pregnant. (More professionally questionable behavior from the shrink.)
Taylor took the opportunity of being invited to Brooke’s birthday party as Eric's plus 1 to expose Bill and Brooke’s infidelity.
There are of course ramifications to this news coming to light.

Katie Didn't Crumble!
Somewhat surprisingly, Katie didn't crumble on the news that Bill had slept with Brooke. Instead Katie took action. She kicked Bill out of her home and Brooke out of her life. Then she started divorce proceedings. But that was only the beginning of Katie's plan for revenge....
The Fallout from Taylor's Actions
What Taylor surely didn’t see coming was that Eric had been keeping Brooke’s secret, causing Taylor to reevaluate her relationship with the Forrester patriarch and walk out.
Predictably, it puts Katie and Bill’s marriage back on the rocks – where it has been for almost all of baby Will’s life. Katie and Brooke’s relationship as sisters is also set to suffer.
With Taylor’s departure (Hunter Tylo’s last airdate was July 3, 2013) not only did she finally deliver her revenge on Brooke but she gave Brooke a farewell gift - a new nemesis – her own sister, Katie.
Let’s hope that Katie’s heart doesn’t give out out her and she is portrayed as a strong woman scorned…Brooke needs someone to keep her in line….
