“In the living room my love,” she shouted back sarcastically.
“What is all this shouting about?” he entered the living room asking, as Natasha spun around to face him.
“Does this mean anything to you?” she questioned, holding a framed picture of the them from Los Angeles months
“Natasha you know that it does,” he replied. “We had that taken on the beach,” he walked towards her and abruptly
stopped as she lunged the frame to the floor and glass shattered all over the hardwood floors.
“Who in the hell do you take me for Bradley?” she questioned. “An idiot? A brainless bimbo? “ she yelled at him.
“Because I am not one of those thing and I am not a victim and I am certainly not a woman who will be lied to or
mistreated,” Natasha told him. “I though you knew that about me.”
Bradley shook his head, “Natasha I do know all of that,” he told her. “Where is all of this coming from?”
“I’ll tell you as soon as you tell me who the woman you had dinner with last night at the country club is,” she told him.
“And before you answer that, I warn you to not even dare think about lying to me Bradley.
the doors at the restaurant inside the Southern River Hotel, she called out for her sister, “Jodi!”
One woman turned around to see who was calling her name. April politely smiled, told the woman that she was sorry
and continued on her mission.
“Jodi Bradshaw…” she called out for a second and most importantly successful time.
Jodi immediately stood up from her seat and offered it to her sister. “For crying out loud, literally April, what is going on
with you?” she questioned. “Do you want the reporters and everyone in River’s Edge to know that I’m here?” Jodi asked
as she pulled off her large sun hat.
“That wasn’t my intention,” April assured her. “But sister dear, you’re doing a fine job of drawing attention to yourself, with
that horrid looking hat,” she teased. “Do you have a minute to talk?”
Jodi looked at her watch and then scanned the sea of bellhops, hotel guests and employees, “I suppose,” she paused, “I
have a minute to spare.”
“Are you sure? You look as though you’re looking for someone.”
“Jaxson,” she told April. “He was supposed to meet me here with the wedding planner,” she explained. “But it appears
that they are both running late.”
“The wedding planner?” April asked. “Please tell me her name is something funny like Jennifer Lupez.,” she joked.
Jodi shook her head, “I thought you were in a bad mood and now here you are cracking jokes. What is going on with you
“Hormones, excitement, nerves…hell you name it and I probably got it,” April said as she reached into her purse and
pulled out Jodi’s proposal for the coffeehouse. “I do believe that this belongs to you.”
fresh cut lawn allowed it to sparkle, the birds were singing and the flowers in the flowerbeds were in full bloom.
She heard Anna one of the maids enter the dining room and Brandi softly said, “God it is so beautiful.”
“What is that Señorita Pierce?” Anna questioned as she sat a basket of freshly baked blueberry muffins and a fresh pot of
coffee on the table.
“Summertime in Texas, morning time in Texas, evening time in Texas,” Brandi laughed. “You name it Anna.”
“It is a beautiful day,” Anna agreed. “Would you and Señor Pierce like lunch on the patio this afternoon?”
“That sounds enchanting Anna, thank you. However, it will just be me for lunch today. I’m working from home. Señor
Pierce is at the office all day,” Brandi explained as an idea suddenly came into her head.
“You know Anna why don’t you take the day off and take your children to the park or the zoo,” she suggested.
“Oh I wish that I could Señorita, but I really do need the hours. If it’s all the same to you,” she told her. “My youngest
daughter needs braces and I’m trying to save up for those.”
Brandi pondered for a moment and then smiled, “Well then it’s settled. You and I will just consider this a holiday, so that
way you can enjoy this beautiful day with your kids and I promise you that you’re pay won’t be deducted,” she winked.
“Oh!” Anna exclaimed with joy. “Mucho gracious Señorita! Mucho gracious!”
Brandi smiled as Anna quickly left the dining room, untying her apron as she left. She turned to the living room and saw
Audrey setting alone with her coffee flipping through the mail that had just arrived earlier.
Brandi reached for the morning paper, glanced at the pictures and then began to make her way into the living room
where Audrey sat all alone – the morning paper in hand.
April and Jodi watched him walk across the room, “We sure did have some fantasies didn’t we?” April asked with a
smile. “And in every single one of them I was your matron of honor.”
“And I was yours.”
“Well then it’s settled, I have no right to deny you the opportunity to have me, your favorite sister as your matron of honor.”
Jodi laughed at the notion, “You’re my only sister,” as she reached across and embraced her sister with a hug. “Thank
you so much for agreeing to do this April.”
“Well this is fabulous,” Dahlia Simons announced her arrival with Jaxson. “I’m the wedding planner, Dahlia Simons.”
“Hi, I’m Jodi Bradshaw and this is my sister April.”
“It’s a pleasure to meet you both. Will you be joining us April?”
“It’s a tempting offer, but no I can’t actually. I told mom I would come by the house today, so I should probably be off,” she
explained as she managed to maneuver out of her chair and kiss Jodi on the cheek. “You’ll call me later?”
“Of course,” Jodi told her.
“Okay then great,” she turned to the wedding planner and smiled, “it was a pleasure to meet you Dahlia and Jaxson I will
see you later.”
as she attempted to wheel herself away.
“Not a chance in hell you sick, hideous, wicked creature,” Brandi roared. “You don’t get to turn your back on me – not after
what you’ve done!”
“I think you have forgotten your role in this house,” Audrey warned.
“Well you want to know what I think Audrey? I think that you have finally pushed me over the edge, that’s what I think. You
have tested my patience ever since I first moved in and it’s going to stop – right here and right now,” Brandi assured her.
“Brandi I swear to God you’re criminally insane,” Audrey fired back at her. “And I will not set here and listen to you
continue to ramble on. Now if you’ll excuse me, I do have work that requires my immediate attention.”
“I told you Audrey that you wouldn’t turn your back on me again,” Brandi yelled at her as she grabbed the handlebars of
her wheel chair and spun her around.
“Anna! Anna!” Audrey cried out. “Anna! I need you immediately,” Audrey called out.
“You’re wasting your breath dear, self-centered Audrey. I sent Anna and the rest of your servants home for the day. It’s just
you and me all alone in this big empty house…” Brandi warned her.
“Not hardly!” Nicholas announced his arrival. “What the hell is going on in here?”
“Oh Nicholas,” Audrey gasped, “thank God you’re here. This lunatic that you married is trying to harm me…that’s what is
going on in here,” she told as the three of them looked at one another. “I want her gone Nicholas,” Audrey declared. “I
want this slut out of my house for good.”
“If anyone leaves this house, it’s going to be you in a body bag if I had my way,” Brandi spit venom at her enemy.
In one quick step Nicholas grabbed his bride around the waist, “Take a step back, Brandi. No one is leaving this house
and especially not in any body bags.”
“Clearly then you haven’t seen this morning newspaper,” Brandi told him as she threw it at Audrey.
“Nicholas…I’m not kidding,” Audrey assured him. “I want her gone! Get her out of my house now!”
“Brandi go get a drink of something and calm down,” Nicholas told her. “I want to speak to Audrey alone please.”
Brandi was at her breaking point. Her lips trembled and her hands were shaking beyond her control, “I will be back,” she
assured Audrey as she headed towards the foyer of the mansion and retrieved her car keys and purse.
“Thank God you came in when you did,” Audrey told Nicholas. “There is no telling what that woman would have done to
me had you not.”
“Did you do this?” Nicholas asked her. “Did you send these pictures to the newspaper?”
“Don’t you touch me,” Natasha warned him. “I do not what those hands to ever touch me again.”
“Okay then, that’s fine. You’re the one who burst into my house like a bat out of hell, you don’t what me to touch you or lied
to you,” he recapped the situation, “so why don’t you tell me what the hell is going on or get out.”
“Brandi and I had dinner last night…at the Country Club,” she revealed to him. “You were there, weren’t you my darling?”
“I was,” he answered. “I had a business meeting.”
“Business? Really? Since when does romancing a woman who is young enough to be your daughter considered
“Her name is Brittany Richmond,” Bradley told her. “And it was business. I didn’t tell you because I knew you would get
upset and over react, much like you’re doing right now.”
“So you didn’t trust me then? Is that what you’re saying Bradley? If this meeting was, as you say business related, then
why couldn’t I have attended? Do you not want your business associates to know that you and I are a couple?”
“Oh Natasha for God’s sake, of course not,” he said in a condescending, unappreciated tone. “You know that I love you.”
Natasha turned to him, raised her hand to slap him, “Don’t you take that tone with me,” she told him as Bradley grabbed
her arm to stop her. “I know nothing of the kind. Now let go of my arm!” she demanded.
Bradley released his grip, “I love you Natasha,” he said as she walked slowly out the front door she had just moment
earlier crashed through. “I love you woman!” he yelled as the door slammed shut behind her.
“I’m going to destroy you Melissa,” she declared as she finally burst into her office.
“Well, I figured it was only a matter of time before Hurricane Brandi struck,” Melissa cracked. “Did the photos not do you
“Oh you think that you’re clever and witty don’t you Melissa?” Brandi questioned. “Usually I like that in most people – but
not a vindictive little bitch like yourself.”
“That’s like the pot calling the kettle black, isn’t it Mrs. Pierce? You’re the one plastered all over the front page of the
newspaper,” she cracked a smile. “Branded a home wrecking whore…a gold digger with no morals and no class and no
respect for herself,” the newspaper editor taunted her.
Brandi’s tender hand snapped quickly across Melissa’s face, “You shut your mouth or I’ll do it for you Melissa,” she
warned her. I am no gold digger and I am no home wrecker,” she assured her. “I have morals and I have self-respect for
myself. I love my husband, very much and he loves me. Quite frankly I think it’s your Ms. O’Neils who has none of those
things. You and I have known one another for years, I never expected you would do this to me.”
“Clearly you don’t know me that well,” Melissa told her.
“Cleary,” Brandi cut her eyes at her. “And clearly you don’t know me all that well either because I not only will never forgive
you for this,” she shook her head and an evil smile wiped across her face, “I will make it my mission to destroy you and
make you rue the day you ever crossed me you stupid bitch!”
“Can I quote you on that Mrs. Pierce?”
“Absolutely,” Brandi told her. “And for Christ sake Melissa…you’re a journalist learn how to spell morals...it’s m-o-r-a-l-s,
there’s no e in the damn word.”
“Mother I have asked you countless times to stop calling me than,” he sighed. “Everyone I know calls me Smoke, why can’
t you?” he asked with a long pause.
They both sat in silence overlooking the River’s Edge skyline before Smoke finally spoke again, “Now would you mind
telling what was urgent that I had to drop everything back in Boston and come here to River’s Edge, Texas?”
“It’s summer and you know much I love the heat,” Hillary smiled. “Anyway…” she continued, “I received a telephone call a
few weeks ago, but you were occupied with finals and with your break-up from Jenny that I didn’t bother telling you
“I’m going to assume that there’s a point to all of this and you’re going to get to it sooner, rather than later?”
“You know that your father and I lived in Dallas for a while right after we were married,” she explained. “Well I received my
law degree and passed the bar here in Texas before your father’s company moved us back to Boston.”
“Mother please get to the point,” Smoke told her.
“About a year ago I nominated myself to be considered for a position as a District Judge in both Massachusetts and here
in Texas. A few weeks ago I received a telephone call from the Governor’s office here in Texas. Apparently the judicial
nominating committee pulled my application and have appointed me to the bench here in River’s Edge,” she explained.
“Payne County,” she clarified.
The news caught Smoke off guard, “The bench?” he questioned. “As in you’re the Honorable Hillary Watson? What about
“The judge that I’m replacing died suddenly and the rules specify that in those instances the judicial nominating
committee may name a temporary appointment,” Hillary explained. “I’ll finish out her term, four years and then run for
election myself. What do you think?”
Smoke shook his head and smiled, “I think it’s wonderful Mom, congratulations!”
Audrey besides the obvious what else did you gain from this little escapade?”
“I do believe you just answered your own question Nicholas,” Audrey replied from her wheelchair. “Revenge,” she turned
away and began to wheel herself across the room. “You humiliated me by having your little affair with Brandi and I in turn
have humiliated the two of you. My daddy used to say, do unto others, as you would have them do unto you,” she
reminded Nicholas as her eyes locked with Brandi’s who had just returned.
“I see this bitch is still here,” she said flatly.
“Brandi you need to calm down,” Nicholas told her as he pulled her into an affection embrace. “You need to understand
that this is Audrey’s home as well.”
“Well it appears that the two of you have some things to sort out,” Audrey announced. “I’ll be in the pool house should
either one of you need me.”
Brandi’s tender, lean body jerked away from Nicholas, “You need to hold up and wait just one damn minute Nicholas,”
she told him, her words filled the entire house. “This is my home, you are my husband and Audrey’s right we have to get
some things straightened out.”
“Would you please calm down?” Nicholas asked. “Come over here and have a drink with me.”
“I don’t want a drink and I sure as hell do not want to calm down Nicholas, so do not tell me to calm down again. I am
furious with this whole situation and to be honest I’m a little ashamed of myself.”
“Ashamed? You’re ashamed of our marriage Brandi?”
“What we did was wrong,” Brandi admitted as Audrey listened from the hallway. “I am not ashamed of falling in love with
you though. I’m ashamed of how we went about it and I’m ashamed that because of your ex-wife everyone in the whole
city knows and by tomorrow…the entire state will know,” Brandi’s anger turned to tears of shame.
Nicholas reached out to comfort her, “Brandi…”
“Don’t you touch me, not after you defended her by saying this was her house…you have blatantly denied my wishes
regarding her,” Brandi told him. “I’m going to say this one more time Nicholas, I want her gone! I want her out of this
house and out of our lives. Why won’t you do that for me?”
“Because I would lose control of King Fashion,” he told.
“Oh the hell with King Fashion,” Brandi erupted. “My reputation as a businesswoman, a city council member and well
respected member of this community is on the line,” her breathes became shorter and she gasped with every word she
spoke. “I swear to you Nicholas, if that bitch ruins my career and my standing within this community and you do nothing
but sit by and idly watch – then I swear to God you won’t have to worry about King Fashion, because I will take it away
from you along with everything else I can get my hands on,” she assured him.
“First off, don’t you make threats that you can’t keep and second, that bitch happens to be the mother of my children, your
step-children,” Nicholas told her.
“I never make threats that I don’t intend to keep,” she told him. “I am your wife. You left her for me and you asked me to
marry you,” she reminded him. “You left the mother of your children for your whore and that is your cross to bear
Nicholas,” her words stunned him. “Funny how it doesn’t sound so romantic now does it?” she threw the newspaper at
him. “I’m serious Nicholas, you had better damn well get your priorities in line – because either she goes or I go on and
baby when I go you’ll damn well know it.”
“And by the way Nicholas, my loving husband…Audrey isn’t the only bitch in this house who’s the mother of your
children,” she announced. “I’ll you again get your priorities in line Nicholas, because if you don’t then I’ll see to that you
never hold our baby in your arms.”
“Baby?” he questioned.
“Yes,” Brandi answered in a calm, soft tone. “I’m pregnant. So you think long and hard about things Nicholas…either
Audrey goes or I go…” she warned him.
the door. “I guess not,” she told herself.
“I’m right here mom,” April appeared in the doorway. “You just have to give me a minute to get around. You remember
what it’s like to be nine months pregnant don’t you?”
“I do indeed,” Natasha smiled. “How has your day been so far? Were you able to meet up with your sister?”
“Yeah, I met her this morning at the club. Her and Jaxson had a meeting with the wedding planner that dad and Sharon
used,” April told her.
“Dahlia Simons?” Natasha asked.
“Yeah. Do you know her?”
Natasha shook her head, “She planned my wedding to your father,” she told her. “I believe your grandmother’s exact
words were that she was a miracle worker.”
“April, there’s something that I need to ask you?” Natasha changed the subjected and her tone of voice.
“Okay. It sounds like it’s important. What is it?”
“It is extremely important April and you have to promise me that you’re going to give me an honest answer,” Natasha told

“Would you stop being so damn stubborn Jodi and just look at the proposal. If nothing else then at least the agreement
page,” April told her. “You know sometimes you can be just as stubborn as dad.”
Jodi looked at the very last page of the proposal and then back at her sister, “Is this for real April? Because if you’re
playing a joke on me I am going to be very upset.”
“I promise you it’s not a joke or a prank, it’s the real deal. Everything that you said yesterday about me and about wanting
more for my baby was right. Like always, you were right.”
“I don’t know want to be right April. I just always want what is best for you. Can you at least understand that?”
April shook her head in agreement, “But how is it that you know what’s best for me even when I sometimes don’t?”
“Just goes along with the job of being your big sister,” she winked at April.
“I guess so,” April replied. “Here comes Jaxson, I should probably get going.”
“Actually would you mind staying?” Jodi asked. “Like I said we’re meeting the wedding planner, Dahlia Simons, and I
would appreciate it if you could stay…since you’re going to be matron of honor,” she smiled.
“What? Are you asking me…” April paused, “you want me to be your matron of honor?”
“Ladies,” Jaxson announced his arrival.
“Hi honey,” Jodi kissed his cheek and then made room for him on the sofa lounge. “I was just asking April if she wouldn’t
mind staying and meeting the wedding planner with us, considering she’s going to be my matron of honor,” she explain
“I still can’t believe you’re asking me,” April admitted.
“Well who else would I ask?” Jodi laughed. “After all you and I have been planning my wedding since we were little girls.
I've finally found my prince charming and now I want my little sister stand up for me. What do you say? Will you do?” she
“Brandi,” Audrey simply responded.
“Oh what’s the matter this morning Audrey, cat got your tongue?” Brandi questioned as she put her hands on the
handlebars of Audrey’s wheelchair and faced her to the sofa.
“Excuse me? Just what do you think you’re doing, you psychotic witch?” Audrey questioned as Brandi took a seat directly
in front of Audrey.
“Well you and me…we’re going to have a little this morning, right here and right now,” Brandi explained. “And when we’re
done Audrey, you and I will have either reached a mutual understanding or have killed one another trying.”

“I was in the library reading. I was actually doing more thinking, rather than reading,” Sharon told him. “I’m sorry that you
weren’t able to find me.”
“Just as long as you haven’t left,” Andrew smiled as he knelt down and kissed Sharon on the forehead.
“Well the jury may still be out on that Andrew.”
He nodded his head, “Yes I guess you could be right.”
“You know that I love you,” Sharon told him. “I’ve told you that countless times, including the night you spent in jail.”
“And I hope that you know Sharon, that I love you,” Andrew said as he looked at their wedding picture.
Therefore what God has joined together, let no man put asunder. You may kiss the bride.”
“You know I thought the hardest thing that I have ever done in my life was burying my children and my husband. But when
I look at you my heart crumbles and it breaks,” Sharon told him. “And the pain of knowing what you done to me, to my
daughter, to your children comes rushing back to me.”
“How many times can I apologize to you, Sharon? Damn it!”
Sharon put her book down and walked over to Andrew. She wrapped her arms around his waist and looked up at him,
“You don’t have to apologize anymore,” she told him. “What you’ve done is wrong, both legally and morally. But I stand by
what I told you that night in jail and what the vows that I made to you on our wedding day – in sickness and in health, for
richer or poorer and through good times and even bad times.”
“And these are certainly bad times,” he kissed the top of her head.
“No these are just trying times,” she told him. “Just promise me that I’m the one and the only one.”
“You are the only woman that I want to be with Sharon,” he told her.
“And promise me that you’ll respect me…”
“I promise that we’ll respect one another. And that we cherish the small moments and the time we have together.”
“I love you Andrew and I’ll stand by you through all of this.”
my favorite couples. However, now one-hundred and forty episodes later I look back at their relationship and think
that their relationship and the characters could have been taken in a complete different direction.
