Hunter Tylo Undressed
Hunter Tylo (born Deborah Jo Hunter on July 3, 1962 in Fort Worth, Texas) is an American actress of half Cherokee descent. She is also credited as Deborah Morehart; Morehart was the last name of her first husband.
She made her career acting on soap operas. She debuted on ''All My Children'' as pickpocket Robin McCall in 1985. She met her future husband Michael Tylo on the set; she played his love interest. She left the show in 1987 and married Michael that same year. She insisted that her husband leave his storyline on ''All My Children'', lest she divorce him, as she perceived that series co-star Taylor Miller, who played Tylo's love interest at the time, to be coming on to him in real life; she makes the accusation in her autobiography ''Making a Miracle''.
She played Marina Toscano on ''Days of Our Lives'' from 1989 to 1990, only to be fired after series star Stephen Nichols reportedly made sexual advances toward her; after she said, "no," Hunter claims, the show wrote her out when Nichols played his character as if he were annoyed by her presence. This story has not been corroborated by anyone except Tylo herself, in her autobiography.
She joined the cast of ''The Bold and the Beautiful'', playing Dr. Taylor Hamilton, in 1990. This would be Hunter's most famous role to date. She played the role until 2002, when her character was supposedly killed off by the vengeful Sheila Carter Warwick (played by Kimberlin Brown); she returned to the show in 2005 when it was revealed that Taylor hadn't been killed but rather had been kidnapped by her former "husband" Prince Omar. The soap press hinted that the "murder" of Taylor was colored with many parallels, as Tylo and Brown dislike each other in real life.

Hunter also says in her autobiography that she and Kimberlin Brown had a major falling-out, which resulted in Brown testifying against her when her marriage to Michael had hit a rough spot; he filed for custody of their two boys, and Brown testified that Hunter was an unfit parent. Before this messy incident, Hunter recounts, she and Brown were best friends.
In 1994, Michael Tylo left Hunter when he found out that she was having an affair with an Indian crewmember whom she had met on the set of her miniseries ''The Maharaja's Daughter''. Hunter had an epiphany in which she realized that Christianity was, in her words, "the one true faith." Since then, she has become a born again|born-again Christian, and she and Michael reconciled.
In 1996, Aaron Spelling fired Hunter from his series ''Melrose Place'' when he found out that she was pregnant. Hunter left ''The Bold and the Beautiful''
