HOLLYWOOD—This week’s leading ladies gold standard goes to three of the most talented and gorgeous ladies, who should all be wearing the Scarlet letter ‘A’ for adultery. Katherine Kelly Lang, who portrays Brooke Logan on “The Bold and the Beautiful,” and Hunter Tylo, who portrays Dr. Taylor Hayes also on “The Bold and the Beautiful,” are two actresses whose paths and storylines cross constantly. Also, two-time Emmy winner Maura West, who portrays Diane Jenkins on “The Young and the Restless,” showed viewers that she has unparalleled chemistry with yet another of that show’s leading men. This week all three ladies portrayed women who went a little over the edge of what is considered taboo to the rest of us.

Kelly Lang as Brooke Logan may say she’s doing nothing new, but her amazing and exciting performance this week makes this reviewer beg to differ. Perhaps Brooke Logan, who is known as the sexiest woman in the world or the whore of Beverly Hills, has been around Coldwater Canyon Drive more times than anyone else has. Though her portrayer is nothing if not unique every time Brooke is in yet another scandal with a Forrester man. This time Brooke dabbled on the wild side one too many times with another paternal relative of her husband. Ridge stopped Brooke from continuing a sexy and tawdry marketing campaign with his son Thomas just in a nick of time. Each time Brooke finds herself in a scandal, “B&B” viewers get even more excited, because we are going to be treated to a thrilling storyline starring Kelly.

Hunter Tylo has been called one of the most beautiful women in the world. Her character Taylor Hayes is considered one of the most renowned psychiatrists in the city of Los Angeles. Although, I’d never go to Taylor for advice, since she constantly finds herself in heartbreak over and over again. This week Taylor screamed out her ex-husband’s name while having sex with her current husband. Then she slipped up and got too personal during a TV interview with her ex, and by Friday, Taylor found herself with another husband who was fed up and ready to leave her. Hasn’t Taylor been through this before? Sure she has. However, Hunter Tylo made it entertaining as she always does.

Maura West ended her “As The World Turns” run earlier this year with a second Emmy award and a job offer to head west and tackle the role of Diane Jenkins on CBS’s number one daytime drama “The Young and the Restless.” Fans of West’s and of “Y&R” knew we’d be in for a treat, but did we realize this incredibly talented and award-winning actress would have such intense chemistry with every leading man on the show? This week Diane had coffee and lots of sexual energy with her former stepson Nick Newman, who has been left heartbroken and raising two daughters because both of his ex-wives, Sharon and Phyllis are unfit mothers. It would have been icky for any other actress to play Diane being slightly interested in her handsome former stepson, but not with Maura West playing the role. It was sensational.

These three actresses defy time, and they remain some of the most beautiful women in television years after starting on daytime. “B&B” and “Y&R” both air weekdays on CBS.
