Part two of a two-part look back at the events of the past year in Los Angeles. This week, our columnist discusses the best that The Bold and the Beautiful had to offer in 2005.
Ashley Jones
January 9, 2006
If Bridget's pregnancy was suddenly compromised somehow, then Nick would be free to be with Brooke, and all would be right in the universe.
Hunter Tylo
January 16, 2006
Ridge has truckloads of nerve to try to make Taylor feel bad about all of the nasty treatment that Brooke has suffered.
Katherine Kelly Lang
January 23, 2006
The writers are conveniently crafting a history that makes Taylor the scapegoat for everything that has gone wrong in Brooke's life.
Lesley-Anne Down
January 30, 2006
Don't let the door hit you, Ridge!
Did Jackie wake up and take her stupid pill before entertaining Eric at the penthouse? Is she NUTS? This whole fake marriage thing can only end one way.
Antonio Sabato, Jr.
February 6, 2006
Monkeys, booze, and premature labor
Dante will have his hands full in the upcoming weeks, and it's about time! His is a character that has more to offer that just flexing pecs and cute dimples.
Joseph Mascolo
February 13, 2006
And the Emmy goes to...?
Massimo Marone -- dad to many, ghost to most these days. He's an accomplished soap actor, and yet it seems that he has become as invisible as Thorne.
Jack Wagner
February 20, 2006
A case for Brooke and Nick
Brooke and Nick should be able to tell the truth about what they feel for each other, and Bridget should admit that the baby's timing helped her hang on to him longer than she should have.
Drew Tyler Bell
February 27, 2006
Let the hating begin!
How sad is it that the last character to use contraception was THOMAS of all people? An 18 year old has the sense that most of the adults on this show lack.
Joseph Mascolo
March 6, 2006
Be careful, or Massimo might threaten you!
Exactly where does Massimo get off threatening anyone these days? Did he lose some of his eyesight when he was on extended hiatus?
Katherine Kelly Lang
March 13, 2006
I'm really trying!
Brooke has had quite a week, huh? With the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that she had to finally scrape Ridge off her heels, she instead remained passive.
Jack Wagner
March 20, 2006
The final four
Why is it that suddenly Nick is the bad guy, and men need to be married to the mother of their children no matter what? By that logic, why hasn't Massimo stayed married to Jackie?
Ronn Moss
March 27, 2006
Can you say...'stalker'?
As if Ridge's character wasn't already bad enough, last week we had the rare treat of watching him sink to an all-time low. He has officially gone around the bend and turned into Brooke's very own stalker.
Katherine Kelly Lang
April 3, 2006
Town tramp or show savior?
As one of only four remaining original characters on The Bold and the Beautiful, Brooke has become the ultimate daytime television lightning rod for controversy.
Joseph Mascolo
April 10, 2006
Questions to ponder
What the hell are Ridge and Massimo doing sitting around replaying old scenes from Goodfellas? They sound like a mob family whose next move is to have Nick rubbed out if he doesn't dump Brooke!
Ronn Moss
April 17, 2006
The Easter bunny is skipping Massimo's house
Evil Massimo seems to have forgotten all about which of his boys deserves his loyalty the most. How many times did Ridge and Taylor have Grandpa Marone over to play with the kids?
Katherine Kelly Lang
April 24, 2006
Pass the sedatives
Given what Brooke was dealing with last week, it's no wonder that she has been turned into a pill-popping ball of psychosis!
Ronn Moss
May 1, 2006
How low can we go?
Ridge's character has taken a turn around the bend. If he was scum before, he is unredeemable now. Rape is rape. Sugar-coating this story is just plain insulting to viewers.
Joseph Mascolo
May 8, 2006
Let this be the end!
Massimo should not have used his influence to blackmail his son into doing his bidding. What a crappy thing to do to Jackie -- hasn't she paid enough for her indiscretions with Deacon?
Susan Flannery
May 15, 2006
Shame on you, Brad
Seemingly overnight, Stephanie has decided to truly put her animosity for Brooke away and welcome her into the family. WHAT? Has she lost her mind?
John McCook
May 22, 2006
The twilight zone
Brooke has earned a stake in Forrester Creations, because her belief did help propel the company to the next level, but the company was Eric's brainchild, not hers.
Hunter Tylo
May 29, 2006
Someone finally said it!
Last week, Taylor said the words that every rational viewer has been silently muttering to themselves for years -- Stephanie has an unhealthy, highly unnatural obsession with Ridge.
Katherine Kelly Lang
June 5, 2006
Exciting new direction?
Brooke would have been better off telling Stephanie to stick her stocks and fake caring where the sun doesn't shine, but it's obvious that the only person that Brooke cares about IS Stephanie.
Susan Flannery
June 12, 2006
Where are the strong women?
Stephanie has lost her marbles. Just a few months ago, she was dancing a jig down Rodeo Drive at the thought of having the company all to herself, and now she has signed over half of the company FOR WHAT?
Katherine Kelly Lang
June 19, 2006
What's next, Bill Gates?
Women have a hard enough time being taken seriously in the boardroom...then again, when your boardroom resembles a circus, like the Forrester boardroom, all bets are off.
Antonio Sabato, Jr.
June 26, 2006
Moving out
Dante, standing there looking pretty while the girls duke it out over you may be amusing to some, but to most it looks pretty pathetic. Take the bull by the horns and tell everyone the truth!
Joseph Mascolo
July 3, 2006
Didn't miss a thing!
Last week, it was announced that more characters would be placed on recurring status. At this rate, we'll soon be watching the Brooke Logan Show, because there won't be anyone else left.
Katherine Kelly Lang
July 10, 2006
It's about time!
What will Stephanie do now that Brooke has turned on her and married Nick? Brooke still has the advantage of the now-infamous 2% that puts her truly in charge of Forrester's direction for years to come.
Hunter Tylo
July 17, 2006
Killing off Darla
How about that Taylor, huh? The writers really have done it this time. Not only is she a drunk, but now she'll probably get charged with vehicular manslaughter for mowing down poor Darla.
Jennifer Gareis
July 24, 2006
I don't like Donna
Hopefully, Donna will set her sights on Ridge and keep him so busy that he can't continue his manipulation of Brooke. She's just too snooty to like at this point, but one thing is certain...she will shake things up!
Winsor Harmon
July 31, 2006
The new power couple?
Due to a family emergency, our columnist was unable to provide a new column this week. Instead, please enjoy a look back at what was happening in Los Angeles during the week of August 2, 2004.
Jennifer Gareis
August 7, 2006
No good Samaritan awards for Donna
If Brad wanted to stir the pot by bringing someone back and completely changing them from their original incarnation, it worked. Mousy Donna has been replaced by Slutty Donna, and she's looking for trouble!
Winsor Harmon
August 14, 2006
You know you're addicted when...
If you prefer to give your kids nature-themed names, such as Brooke, Thorne, Ridge, or Storm, then you're definitely addicted to The Bold and the Beautiful.
Katherine Kelly Lang
August 21, 2006
The show can't exist without...
Brooke has been there from the start, and for years, she has amazed us with her business acumen, her over the top sexual appetite, and her reproductive prowess.
Ronn Moss
August 28, 2006
Jumping the shark
Donna is working hard to land Ridge, but it seems clear that Ridge wants to exploit the attention to bring Brooke back to him instead.
Katherine Kelly Lang
September 4, 2006
The masses have spoken!
Brooke needs to be given a healthy relationship for once that will last longer than the average trip to the bathroom.
Jack Wagner
September 11, 2006
Thankful for tennis
Nick seems to be the latest victim in the writer's quest to make every character just as disgusting and reprehensible as possible.
Ashley Jones
September 18, 2006
A blonde who needs a good smack!
Bridget is whiny, conniving, and just plain manipulative. She is becoming the man-stealer of the show.
Jack Wagner
September 25, 2006
Truer words were never spoken
Every time that Nick and Brooke have a fight, Nick gets drunk and pouts on the Marlin. Now he has gone and done the worst thing that he could possibly do.
Ronn Moss
October 2, 2006
Top ten ways to save the show
Keep Ridge in Europe...forever. His character has outlived his usefulness, and he and Donna deserve each other. They can grow old together, competing to see who has the biggest ego.
Jennifer Gareis
October 9, 2006
Rest in peace, Brooke and Nick
Donna is rapidly becoming the cheesy streetwalking imitation of Brooke in her younger days.
Katherine Kelly Lang
October 16, 2006
The verdict is in
Nick and Bridget's one night of utter stupidity pales in comparison with the NUMEROUS times that Deacon and Brooke slept together before ever admitting a thing.
Winsor Harmon
October 23, 2006
Thorne's glass love shack
So Taylor makes a huge error in judgment and accidentally kills Darla with no premeditation at all, and she should be tarred and feathered?
Drew Tyler Bell
October 30, 2006
Head-scratchers of the week
With Thomas allegedly coming back for more airtime, wouldn't it make sense to have Amber scheming and plotting in Los Angeles again?
Ronn Moss
November 6, 2006
Taking a break
Due to personal issues, our columnist was unable to provide a new column this week. Instead, please enjoy a look back at what was happening in Los Angeles during the week of October 18, 2004.
Jack Wagner
November 13, 2006
Pay the piper
Nick should cut his losses and focus on finding another woman, because Brooke doesn't deserve him. She married him, knowing that she was still hung up on Ridge.
John McCook
November 20, 2006
What I am thankful for
Stephanie is about as hot as a paperweight. Eric is still a jellyfish, but at least with Jackie, he is a manly jellyfish.
Hunter Tylo
November 27, 2006
Who are these people?
Taylor went from being a pseudo-saint to being a murderous drunk driver in what seemed to be no time at all.
Susan Flannery
December 4, 2006
Dude, where's my company?
Eric has made his share of mistakes, as many men and women do in marriages, but after seeing how Stephanie's emasculating behavior found its genesis, it's clear that he never stood a chance.
Katherine Kelly Lang
December 11, 2006
It's quiet...too quiet
Brooke and Stephanie hate each other. It's just the natural order of things. The Stephanie-Brooke fights of the past have been some of the best catfights on television, so why ruin that now?
Ronn Moss
December 18, 2006
A true Christmas classic
Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even Ridge...that louse.
Ashley Jones
December 25, 2006
Lumps of coal
