I read this quote too, but it confused me. From '78-'79, Jill tricked Stuart Brooks into marriage by pretending she was pregnant, and tried and failed to get a divorce settlement from him. For the rest of '79, before BD left, she went back to plotting with Derek how to fleece Katherine of her money.
So... seems like Jill of the late '70s was already a schemer - not sure why BD was so thrown off when she came back.
I'm happy they're gone. I'm definitely not homophobic, but I just couldn't stand the fact that Kristina looks like a preteen and it made Parker look like a predator. I'm relieved that it's over and if they want to do another lesbian storyline, get actors that actually look like they should be attracted to one another.
I know what you mean. It was always kind of sad that when Kay would flashback to the past after JW took over, they could never show some of her best scenes with Jill, since BD was no longer playing the part. JC in her book said BD could be a handful at times, she still loved working with her and people behind the scenes did her wrong.
She said she had to play that up because she no longer felt Jill was a heroine, or something along those lines. Whatever happened it seemed like things started spinning out of control somewhere between the early months or first year of her return and 1986-1987. It's a shame, since as much I do love Jess as Jill, I think Brenda at her best really got the heart and emotions of Jill (as shown in some of those '80s flashback episodes and more raw moments).
