I’m sorry, while I understand her being upset, Hope’s outburst at Maggie’s was really low class and innappropriate. Maggie has just lost her husband, she has a house full of relatives consoling her, WTH is Hope thinking bringing her marital drama into that situation? She just "lost it" and forgot everyone was there? Uh uh sorry, not acceptable, you are an adult….control your urges. Not very classy, and then to keep it going and going with that whole confrontation after Maggie left the room? How big is Maggie’s house? She is just in the next room! Shut up! That being said, I did enjoy their argument. I thought Carly got in a lot of good shots and even though I hate her behavior as of late, I did think she had a point about Hope taking the moral high ground. Oh and the best line of the day….when Bo comes in and Hope says "Welcome to your worst nighmare."January 15, 2010 at 5:22 am #9667kprstrsParticipant
I so totally agree with you ‘majenco’. While I in no way condone what Bo and Carly have done, Hope really has to lay the blame at her own two feet. Carly was spot on with her comment about the ‘moral high ground’ and there have been a lot of people talk about this very thing on this board before and apparently have forgotten in their anger towards Bo. Bo literally begged Hope to come home and she ignored his pleas. I say she either stakes her ‘claim’ or let Bo go. I will take him, in a heartbeat!!!January 15, 2010 at 12:38 pm #9671BonbonParticipant
That is one thing the writers on this show have always done. Nothing is either all black or all white. They make their villians sometimes show their humanity in ways that make them not so bad. EJ is probably the best example of that. Even Stefano at times has shown his soft side, i.e. with Sydney. And the blame in disputes is not always cut and dried. As we all know, Bo, Hope, AND Carly should have at least some of the blame laid at their feet.January 15, 2010 at 3:00 pm #9675LRIParticipant
The Horton’s are an incredibly tight knit family and Hope had not just 1 but 2 shocks to her system in the same day. Losing her dear uncle and finding out about her husband’s infidelity could crack even those with the calmest dispositions. While I agree that it wasn’t the right time or place – you can bet damn well that if I’m at MY aunts house and I walk into the room to see this woman standing there who I just found out slept w/ my husband – well lets just say that my temper may have gotten the best of me as well. Oh and here’s a newsflash – my aunt would have been disgusted w/ that woman and likely would have kicked her out herself asking her to never return. So I repeat – yes it was the wrong place – but in this case Hope’s behavior is much more palatable than those of both Carly & Bo. They too are adults and should be accountable for their behavior. Carly is clearly not embarrassed or taking accountability for her actions as she point blank told Hope she wasn’t sorry about Bo. Interesting, yet she’s talking about Hope’s moral high ground. That was rich.January 15, 2010 at 5:03 pm #9683BonbonParticipant
Remember, when Carly went to Maggie’s house, she didn’t know that Hope knew she had sex (I refuse to say "slept with") with Bo. Bo had left her a message but she hadn’t read it yet. I’m sure if she had known that Hope was aware of their escapade, she would never have shown her face there. At least I hope not.January 15, 2010 at 5:45 pm #9685LRIParticipant
However once there she had no problems saying she was sorry about uncle Mickey but not sorry about Bo. That, in and of itself, showed a lack of morals and character IMO.January 15, 2010 at 7:46 pm #9692IwovemyboysParticipant
You are right to a degree but remember that there were a few times Hope told Bo she and Ciara were going to go home. But he wouldn’t let her because it was too unsafe because Carly was there and he wouldn’t make her move so that he could "protect" her. So that argument is pretty much moot!January 15, 2010 at 8:25 pm #9693majencoParticipant
I agree about Carly, her behavior has been less than honorable with this whole Bo thing, while not black and white, she is in the darker gray area here. As far as Hope, I get she’s angry and hurt and shocked, I personally would hope that I could keep that part of me in check in a room full of people that were grieving. At least yesterday when she was in the kitchen with Bo she realized that the day was "about Maggie" and not them. Of course I have never had my husband cheat on me so who the heck knows how I would really react! ; bJanuary 16, 2010 at 6:30 pm #9733IzzyBParticipant
I agree Hope flipping out was fine. She is totally thrown at this point and has the right to "crack", but I also think Carly’s comments were dead on. While she probably should have stayed away, she thought Hope wasn’t there, thought Hope didn’t know, and wanted to check in on her daughter. So I get what Carly did, I get what Hope did, and I totally loved their conversation.January 17, 2010 at 12:18 pm #9750June66watcherParticipant
saying Hope deserved the infidelity because she didn’t remain the ‘constant wife’. IMO, Hope should have stayed at home to let time heal the problems in her head. Running away is always wrong, considering Bo was hardly a danger to either wife or daughter. On the other hand, it was Bo’s decision to ‘get into Carly’ in more ways than one… he walked away from the marriage himself. So Bo & Hope can both be blamed for the destruction. Carly is an opportunist, like a school girl crush… but Bo made it easy for her to fantasize and realize!
