Congrats to Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke, B&B) who was selected as the star of the month! Click here to learn more--->>
Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) has been having a difficult start to the new year; she relapsed after drinking champagne that she thought was non-alcoholic thanks to Sheila Carter. Brooke then took shots of vodka with Deacon and later wound up kissing him and spending the night together. Lang has perfectly displayed Brooke’s roller-coaster of emotions: confusion, frustration, anger, desperation, fear, etc. Brooke was confused when she woke up next to Deacon and frustrated that she can’t recall what led her to drink. She’s determined to remember, but is stumped as her sobriety was going so well. Lang also brilliantly showcased Brooke’s fear and shame in admitting to Ridge that she relapsed; not giving Ridge eye contact and burying her face in her hands. Her acting choices were top notch in displaying an alcoholic trying to come to terms with their relapse and fear that her loved ones will be as disappointed in her as she is in herself. The frustrating part for Brooke was that it was unintentional and how this could possibly destroy her marriage due to Deacon’s role in what went down that night. Brooke tried so hard to not reveal that Deacon was with her that night, but Douglas ruins that by telling Hope, Liam, Steffy, Thomas, and Ridge that he saw “grandma kissing Santa Clause”. Brooke admits to Hope that it was Deacon. Lang displayed Brooke’s fear in her wide-eyed expression and higher pitched tone of voice as Brooke panics that Douglas will accidentally reveal too much. Brooke has a moment with Douglas where she tries to convince him to move on from what he saw as the holidays are over; fans can hear the desperation that Brooke is feeling through Lang’s powerful performance. Lang also got to showcase Brooke’s courage when Brooke attended an AA meeting and spoke about her struggles that happened on New Year’s Eve. Fans can’t wait to see what happens next for Brooke as she continues to try to keep herself and her marriage together while fending off Deacon’s professions of love. Fans are also looking forward to Brooke finding out the truth as they know a Brooke and Sheila showdown will be epic! Lang always delivers and fans are along for the ride!
