Linda being a mom, doesn't give her a free pass. I am actually younger than Linda and my kids would be shocked and disgusted if I would sleep with one of their friends and I wouldn't blame them. Personally, I couldn't even imagine it. When I look at them, they are just kids.
If anything she should be more careful, that her actions don't negatively affect her kids. Less than a year and a half ago, that boy was underage. Sleeping with him would have legally made her a child molester. Both Brooke and Nick are already having to deal with a very public, nasty divorce. Add to that, Mom sleeping with a teenager?! Sorry, I just don't think much of her as a mother. Respect is earned and maintained not freely given. I think Brooke has lost that respect for Linda, and now it's up to Linda to earn it back. Instead, Linda was whining about it not being fair and it made her look like the bad guy. Hello, you're the one sleeping with a kid!!!
