Hello my Bold and Beautiful peeps! How was your week? Did you have your helping of crow? Did you sign a lucrative contract with a top-notch fashion house? Did you get a surprise marriage proposal? How about ask your estranged for an annulment? Or, wait for it, tell your sister that you miss her and that she needs to get past the fact that you slept with her husband? All of this and more occurred this week on The Bold and the Beautiful. Get your dishes ready, it's time for my two scoops!
Maya and Carter sitting in a tree. K-I-S-S-I-N-G. First comes Room 8, then comes marriage, then comes Rick all psycho and jealous. Yes, my peeps. Carter popped the question this week. I feel so sorry for this guy. He's such a delicious man, and he's so hung up on Maya, who is obviously longing for Rick. If Maya were any type of a good woman, she wouldn't accept this man's proposal. He deserves to have someone's whole heart. Not a piece of it. Also, if Room 8 was such a success, why is Maya still living in the shack above Dayzee's? Isn't Steffy's loft available? What about Bridget's apartment? What about Owen Knight's beach house?
Just when Wyatt thought he was down and out, in swooped his angel, Hope. Hope made a huge business proposition for the Fuller family. She wanted Quinn Artisan Jewelers to be the sole accessory designers for the brand new HFTF line. All of a sudden, Hope was no longer the spoiled, privileged little rich girl from Beverly Hills; she was Quinn's new favorite person.
Mama Fuller also noticed how Hope has an effect on her son. "She's A-okay in my book," Mama Fuller said with a huge Kool-Aid smile on her face. Quinn's smile reminded me of Queen Stephanie. You know that look she got when she saw the perfect woman for her number one son, Ridge. Man, I miss that lady. I wish Susan Flannery could come back as Brooke's moral conscience like Jerry Douglas (ex-John Abbott) does for Jack Abbott on The Young and the Restless.
Quinn seems like a go-getter. I wonder how she'll act when she gets a taste of the Forrester life. Why do I have a feeling that she'll set her sights on Eric to secure a place in the company? I don't know. I could be wrong. Maybe she'll hit it off with Thorne. Lord knows Thorne needs a substantial storyline that doesn't involve him whining about being in the basement. Enter Alexandria.
Rumors are circulating that the producers are on the hunt for a Caucasian female, ranging from ages 17 to 19. I think it'll be very interesting to see exactly how Aly will fit into this mix. I wanted Aly to return and give Taylor hell for her role in Aly's mother's (Darla) death. I know some fans want Aly to return and have an axe to grind with Hope. They want her to be jealous of the fact that Hope gets a fashion line and her dad gets the basement. I think it would be great if she came back hating her cousins, Thomas and Steffy. Here's why.
Thomas and Steffy are Ridge and Taylor's kids. Taylor killed her mother. Ridge is the prized son who has stock in the family company. Thorne doesn't. Tommy boy has 5% (he also has the voting rights of Ridge's 20%) of the company, Steffy has 25%, Ridge has 20%, Eric has 37.5%, and Bill Spencer has 12.5%. What does Thorne or Aly have? 0%. To have Aly come back only hating Hope would be senseless.
Liam and Rick had a bonding moment this week. Rick said he finally understood what it was like to be in love with two incredible women. Really, Rick? I don't think he loved either Maya or Caroline. If he loved Maya, he wouldn't have jumped Caroline's bones in the blink of an eye. I don't care what hot little lingerie number she was wearing. If he loved Caroline as much as he said he did in the beginning, he would've worked harder to make the relationship work. So please, Rick, keep your apologies to yourself.
Anyway, Liam was on top of the world that his devilish half-brother was out of "his" house and out of the Spencer family. When Liam found out that Hope hired Quinn's company, his blew his top. The hissy fit was hilarious. What was even funnier is the fact that Liam asked Hope if she even considered how he would feel about the fact that she hired Wyatt's mom's company. LOL.
Liam, Liam, Liam. You're such a silly little rabbit. It's not all about you, buddy. There's a new hottie in town. His name is Wyatt Fuller Spencer. He's coming after your girl, and most likely, he's going to get her. Liam had the nerve to talk about someone not respecting relationships. Really, Liam? You? Mr. Flip-Flopper-Waffle Boy? Please, Liam, sit down and shut up.
Does anyone else enjoy seeing Liam squirm? This fool is really a piece of work. He has toyed with Hope and Steffy for the past three years now. He finally seemed to settle with Steffy. He loves her, he claims. Not only because she was pregnant with his demon seed, but she understood him. Steffy bolts because of the miscarriage. He finds his way back to Hope. Hope asks for Liam to get an annulment; he says no. He has to respect Steffy's wishes.
Who else laughed when Liam had the nerve to call Steffy, tell her he missed her, and in the same breath say he needed the annulment? Oh, now he wants an annulment? He only wants it because he thinks that he needs to marry Hope with quickness before Wyatt swoops in and whisks her away. Yeah, I'm team Wyatt. I want Liam to finally feel the same pain and aggravation he put Hope and Steffy through. It's been a long time coming. Let me get my popcorn ready.
I loved Caroline this week. She wasn't being her obnoxious, spoiled brat self. It was kind of refreshing. I like that the writers reminded the viewers that Caroline was Bill's niece. It was nice to see the interaction between them. Caroline tracked her Uncle Bill down in Brooke's bedroom. Bill was ready to shut her down, but she said that she was pretty much in his corner. She told her sister-swapping uncle that he needed all the support he could get now that he was pretty much a disgrace.
This girl was on point. She reminded Bill that Brooke has never really kept anything going with any man for a long period of time. Well, aside from Ridge, Caroline is right. Brooke's relationships always end, and she'll always go back to Ridge, her true destiny. Bill is just another name that needs to be checked off Brooke's list. Everyone else sees it. Soon, 50-cent Spencer will see it too. The question is, will it be too late?
Brooke was acting like Taylor Hayes this week. Running around, meddling in other people's business. Not working. It seems like this woman doesn't have a job anymore. She was either trying to take a page out of Hope's father/son reunion book, or bothering the sister she betrayed at the sister's place of business. I wish she could've heard me screaming at her through the television.
How does Brooke do it? The woman sleeps with her sister's husband, twice, and gets pregnant. Yet, she still claims to be an innocent in the situation. Brooke asked Wyatt to hear both sides of this Bermuda Triangle-type of an affair story. After Brooke broke things down for Wyatt in her own way, Wyatt's attitude towards her and his father magically changed. Unbelievable.
I'm glad the only person, besides Katie, that's not cutting Brooke any kind of slack is Hope. After Brooke had her chat with Wyatt, she ventured back to her place of business and found Hope there. She tried to have small talk with her daughter, but Hope just shut her down. Hope's not trying to hear any of her mom's excuses. She's tired of them. Lord knows I am.
Katie Logan Spencer's theme song should be "Roar" from Katy Perry. Seriously. I was listening to this song a few days ago, and I thought to myself, yep, this sounds like Katie. Check out the lyrics.
"I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sat quietly, agreed politely
I guess that I forgot I had a choice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything
"You held me down, but I got up
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, you hear that sound
Like thunder gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready cause I've had enough
I see it all, I see it now"
"You wanna talk about what a judge would do? Well let's talk about that. Because when a judge hears that you left a woman who survived a heart transplant, who battled back from post postpartum, who gave you a child even though it almost killed her. YOU LEFT HER for her sister. I don't think there's any question what the ruling would be. And you would be lucky to ever see your son again. -- Tiara
"I have to agree with Katie. Why are you crying Brooke? Shut up... and that's was so lame. Katie is going on a business trip. It's not the end of the world. I thought she would say she was going to Texas with Stephen indefinitely. --Teresa
