  • Kelly gets hooked on diet pills and lashes out at those that care about her

    7.8
    Sorry, but this episode for me marks yet another Kelly being "Holier than thou" installment.

    She starts off by pretending she doesn't want anyone to care about her birthday and then freak when she can't find a shoe. After she passes out in the bathroom and taken to the hospital I felt for her - until Brenda enters her room.

    When she makes the comment "looks like I'm gonna live so you can't have Dylan back" to Brenda (tho I am not sure she said that exactly) I wanted to slap her.

    This episode along with many others shows the true person Kelly Taylor is. She was afraid Dylan wasn't attracted to her and started taking pills to make herself more desirable and then lashes out at him for worrying about her. Not to mention she is completely awful to Brenda even though Bren shows her complete compassion in the hospital. I don't blame Brenda for asking Kelly if she was trying to punish herself for taking Dylan - yet all Kelly can think of is one-upping Brenda - hence the "Looks like I'm gonna live" comment. If we already didn't know Kelly was one of the most selfish characters on the show - this ep definitely sheds some light.moreless

  • Poor Kelly

    8.7
    I felt sorry for Kelly, on the diet pills but thought it was extremely rude of her to yell at the people who came to view the house - although I would be annoyed too if someone was looking through my stuff.

    I thought the story line with Steve and Brandon on the game show was funny but I would have thought that Celeste would have chosen Brandon. I'm glad though that Steve knew what was important and made it to Kelly's party. I think that there might be a thaw in the rift between Kelly and Brenda after their talk in the hospital.moreless
