Taylor is a psychiatrist, who, like her rival Brooke, considers Ridge the love of her life. (Unlike Brooke, she's had three kids with the guy.) But that's only one of her problems.
Her battles with the bottle -- she killed her half-sister-in-law while driving drunk -- not to mention her near-death experiences as a plane-crash survivor and gunshot victim, make Taylor a prime candidate for therapy. (She should've had her own license revoked for violating a patient confidentiality agreement, however good her intentions may have been.)
Unlike Brooke, Taylor is less likely to use sex for selfish purposes. She's just looking for love in all the wrong places -- and she's certainly suffered for it. She's come back from the dead more times than Jesus Christ himself. Didn't someone say the road to hell was paved with good intentions?
