I don't believe she ever wrote for OLTL again after her initial run as HW, but she did two stints on Loving, taking over for two years after Doug Marland left in 1985, and then returning from the fall of 1993 until the fall of 1994.

I agree that Brooke needs a viable anti-Brooke. She is really at her best when she is in a rivalry with another woman (that has always been the most captivating part of her relationships with men - how she relates to the woman she competes with). Brooke is a character who really needs conflict to thrive.
Stephanie was, of course, Brooke's best rival by far. Caroline/Brooke was also an interesting dynamic because they started out as friends (and ultimately ended up as friends as well). Taylor/Brooke had its moments but in the end I think it was overplayed and became repetitive so I really wouldn't want to see that rivalry revisited (in part because I feel the Taylor character has been so poorly written for so long that she can hardly be salvaged at this point). Out of Brooke's rivalries, the one I think had the most unused potential left was Macy/Brooke. It took a decade for the show to pit them against each other (or even put them in the same scene), but when they did, it was pretty explosive. They seemed to have almost as much raw hatred between them as Brooke and Stephanie and they truly brought out the absolute worst in each other. Too bad they kept killing Macy off as soon as the conflict with Brooke escalated. If she weren't dead (if she is dead), that is one rivalry I could see really reviving the Brooke character.
I remember reading somewhere that OLTL had two actresses (I think specifically actresses, rather than two stars, but maybe not) who wanted very much for the other one to be axed, but the show needed both, so that one would work with a group of actors in the morning and the other in the afternoon and they didn't have to work together. Does this ring any bells? I wondered if this would be Erika Slezak and Judith Light, both necessary to the show at this time.
And Paul, I totally agree that poor Larry should have known to avoid women named Karen! The first Karen Wolek was disastrous enough.
