Krista Allen, 51, has never been scared of speaking out about life or her Bold & Beautiful character.
Allen’s inspiring message
As much as she sympathizes with Taylor, the actress also has many issues with her actions, particularly regarding Ridge! Still, she never stops trying to find the uplifting and inspiring, even in the messiest of situations.
And that’s what the actress tried to do when she gave a bit of a preview of Monday’s episode of Bold & Beautiful.
You know, the episode where Taylor stopped playing nice with Brooke and told her Ridge had been ignoring their kids for the blonde, after how many years of Taylor being out of town? Yeah, we had a few things to say about that.
Still, Allen wanted to share an uplifting message from the whole thing. She tweeted, “Sometimes,” adding, “the scariest bridge to burn is the one between you and the person you thought you had to be.”
Fans aim Allen squarely at Taylor
Fans didn’t quite take it as the uplifting message the actress had hoped for! Instead, they turned it squarely back at Taylor, even as they mused over the “cryptic” nature of the message!
At one point, Allen replied, “You say cryptic,” adding, “I say deep. Taylor’s messy journey of growth might just be relatable to many.”
When she puts it that way, who among us hasn’t made a mess as we’ve tried growing? We’re willing to be no one, so maybe we shouldn’t be so quick to judge Taylor. You know what they say about those who live in glass houses, after all. Wait, that might apply to the accusations Taylor threw at Brooke at the beginning of the week. Maybe we shouldn’t go there…
As folks pondered what Allen’s tweet meant, Hannah Lerum asked for clarification. Allen responded that she was “Just tweeting a message about getting out of our way; I’m deep like that.”
And then there was TeamSteffi1, who worried that Taylor would try changing who she was for Ridge. But, she added, “I hope not. Taylor is fabulous the way she is.”
The actress couldn’t help but laugh at this point, noting, “Somehow, this tweet is not the inspiration for self-love that I imagined it would be.”
That’s fair, but so is the fact that Taylor does tend to make questionable choices, so it’s a little understandable if fans’ minds went right there!
The good news is that plenty of fans got the message and chimed in with replies about how they’d already had to face this hard truth in their lives. Sometimes, we do stand in our way regarding growth and happiness. Taylor’s not the only one who does it.
But lord, Taylor, maybe hurry up burning that bridge with the person you thought you had to be. If we’re going to get specific here, hurry up and burn that “Tridge” before it’s too late!
