A FAVORITE BLAIR
I just had another one of my brilliant ideas!
FACTS ABOUT THE CHARACTER BLAIR WARNER Money, breeding, beauty—Blair Warner has it all, and she isn't afraid to let everyone know it. She admits to being spoiled and always getting her way. But tragic events, such as her parents' divorce and the fire at Edna's Edibles, bring out Blair's loyalty and compassion. As she matures, Blair becomes more than just a Warner and shows herself to be an intelligent, responsible person who delights in helping others. Her mother Monica Warner has gone through a total of seven marriages by 1988. Her father David Warner runs Warner Industries. In 1985 Monica Warner had a baby on Christmas day. Blair's baby sister, Bailey, was named after her grandfather. The name was Blairs idea. We catch up with Blair in 2001, Blair is wealthier than ever, after building a hotel empire with her husband, Tad. But she suspects he is having an affair. They have no children.
