Biography Edit

Kristen is the oldest daughter of Eric Forrester and his wife Stephanie Douglas. She is freelance designer who has been married twice. Stephanie thought Kristen was getting too close to Eric and hired gigolo, Clarke Garrison, to date Kristen. She married Clarke in 1988 and resulted in divorced in 1990.

Competing company, Spectra Fashions had been going downhill and Antonio Dominguez wanted to rebuild it and give it a new look while Eric had the same idea. Eric sent Kristen to convince Tony to join them. He denied her request proving loyal to Spectra but instead asked her on a date. They began to romance each other. Tony realized that his past love, Ellen, had died from AIDS and that he had a risk of developing this disease. With the help of doctor Taylor Hamilton, he came to terms with his HIV results as positive. Tony broke up with Kristen fearing that she might contract the disease.

A determined Kristen continued to implore and pursue Tony and promised to fulfill his deepest longings. Kristen's insistence led to Tony giving in to their passion for one another. Kristen and Tony were completely aware of the ramifications of continuing their relationship before announcing it to Eric and Stephanie. Soon after, Kristen proposed to Tony.

Although the Forresters' were initially opposed to the union, all tension was over come when Eric finally accepted Tony's request for him to stand up as best man. After Kristen and Tony married, they honeymooned in Africa on Safari. While there, they encountered Zende, an orphan who was accused of stealing a role of film from them. They soon bonded with the boy. Later at Zende's orphanage, Tony and Kristen learned that many of the children there were orphans of AIDS. Tony and Kristen fell in love with Zende and wanted to raise him. They left Africa, but returned a short while later and adopted Zende and took him back to L.A. with them. Tony, Kristen and Zende faded into the background, and have since been said to be living in Florida. Kristen continues to make frequent appearances in L.A. for family and business reasons.

Tony returned to Los Angeles along with Kristen in late 2012 to attend Stephanie's party, as she was dying of lung cancer and also celebrated Christmas that year with the other Forresters.
