This week’s Leading Ladies Gold Standard goes to two beautiful actresses who star on CBS’s mega popular daytime drama “The Bold and the Beautiful.” Both stunning Katherine Kelly Lang, original cast member for 25-years as Brooke Logan Forrester, and beautiful Kim Matula, who portrays daughter Hope Logan both shined this week. Actually every leading lady did on “B&B,” from Susan Flannery to Jacqueline MacInnes Wood. All shined brightly, but these two had exceptional scenes. Hope is falling into a dark place, taking pills in order to have a sexual encounter with boyfriend Liam, who is married to her stepsister Steffy, and Brooke, the constant protective mom; who knew that Brooke would eventually become the new Stephanie Forrester as she became post 40-years-old?
Katherine Kelly Lang has played the adoring mother for months now. However, you can almost empathize with Brooke over her concern for daughter Hope. Brooke has not been the best mother always in her children’s lives, but she is doing a great job now being her daughter’s greatest advocate. This week Brooke not only was concerned about Hope, but she battled Steffy and the rest of the Forrester family, including husband Ridge over her concern that Hope is not getting a fair chance to be with the man she loves.
Then Brooke climbed the walls almost literally, when she found Amber sneaking around her son, Rick again. Brooke cannot stand Amber, who seduced Rick when she was suppose to be babysitting him over a decade ago. Brooke never got over the betrayal by Amber, and here’s hoping that Katherine has a chance to stretch her great dramatic skills soon, with her very own front burner storyline.
Kim Matula goes from nervous and jittery about sex, to pill-popping sexpot just like mom Brooke Logan. Liam, not very swift has not figured out yet, that the key to their sensual sex life is not his good looks, it’s what Hope has been given by her therapist to relax and lower her inhibitions whenever she feels nervous about having an intimate life with Liam.
Kim is such a sweet person in real life, that it’s so much fun to see her turn into a tigress sexually like hot-mama Brooke, but then we see the side of her that so far Liam is oblivious to. The nervous, uncontrollable stressed out diva, and she’s doing a great job playing both emotions and sides of her character.
“B&B” airs weekdays on CBS daytime. Don’t miss it!
