In her professional journey from Valley Girl to chemist to fashion designer, Brooke has always followed her heart's desires, which usually involve the Forrester men. She's married Ridge (multiple times), his father, his half-brother, and three non-family members. She's also hooked up with a half-dozen other guys. (She brings new meaning to best-laid plans.)
Brooke's relentless pursuit of romantic perfection knows no bounds -- she's a manipulative liar who uses her children as weapons. That's won her the mortal enmity of both Forrester matriarch Stephanie and Taylor, Brooke's great rival for Ridge's affections. (Those two have had more great catfights than the Discovery Channel and Animal Planet combined.)
Still, Brooke sometimes feels guilty for her behavior, and she has saved Stephanie's life (more than once). Plus, the Forresters did cheat her out of the millions she made the company by inventing an anti-wrinkling agent. Also, as the biological mother of the son Taylor carried to term, Brooke sees herself not as a slut, but a heroine.
