MOST MISGUIDED STORY


TONY'S HIV, THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL


We've already taken B&B to task for the breakneck speed at which it coupled Tony and Kristen. But on the heels of their whirlwind courtship came a plot twist that bogged it down further: Tony's HIV-positive status. In an instant, the already tenuous romance factor was replaced with fear, anxiety and dread. B&B responsibly presented important facts about HIV (though we could have done without Kristen's uncomfortably frank sex talk with dad Eric). The attempt to deal with this important social issue was certainly admirable. But such heavy subject matter is a risk even with an established couple; Kristen and Tony's brand-new romance was crushed under the weight of all those good intentions.
