As I watched this week's episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful, I found myself talking to the television as if the characters could actually hear me. (I know some of my fellow Scoopers do this too.) Then I figured it's that time again. I'm sending out emails to give these people a piece of my mind. Get your dishes ready; it's time for this week's Two Scoops.
As I watched this week's episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful, I found myself talking to the television as if the characters could actually hear me. (I know some of my fellow Scoopers do this too.) Then I figured it's that time again (and if you missed my last emails to a friend from back in March, you can check it out here). I'm sending out emails to some of the Forrester, Fuller, Logan, and Spencer friends and families. I'm going to give these people a piece of my mind. Get your dishes ready; it's time for this week's Two Scoops.
My first email is going to Aly Forrester. Aly has truly matured into a lovely young lady since she made her appearance a few months ago. The only gripe I have with Aly is that she's too involved in Hope's affairs and not paying enough attention to her man, Oliver.
Subject: Worry about YOUR man, not Hope's.
Congratulations on your romance with Oliver. He is quite a catch. I think you will lose him if you continue to invest so much of your time into Hope's love affairs instead of your own. Why are you so involved in her twisted love life anyway? Why do you hold Liam up in the highest regard and you look at Wyatt like he's gum on the bottom of your shoe? Honestly, Wyatt has treated Hope better than Liam has. I think you know this. But, that's beside the point. You have a man -- pay attention to him. If you don't, you could lose him.
Aly's cousin/sidekick Ivy Forrester has made quite a splash these past few days. She can be quite difficult to read sometimes because she's incredibly two-faced.
Subject: True Colors
You stepped on the scene, talking a lot of smack about Brooke and Hope. Naturally, you had the Australian tabloids to get the latest gossip. You don't really care for the Logan women, do you? That's fine. Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. If you don't care for either of them, why did you feel the need to go to Brooke's house as a guest for her daughter's wedding celebration? You talk so much trash behind their backs; why not say whatever you have to say to their faces? One minute, you're apologizing to Hope about what happened and encouraging her to get an annulment. The next minute, you're telling Aly that you hope Hope honors her wedding vows to Wyatt. At least your cousin, Liam's ex-wife, Steffy was upfront with her hatred.
What was the purpose of you going to Paris with Liam anyway? Wyatt was already there, doing the jewelry part of the photo shoot. Were you really having trouble swimming to the bank when you fell into the water? You didn't seem in distress to me. You put on a good performance. Bravo. We all know that Liam loves saving Forrester women in near-death drowning experiences.
You do realize that if you hadn't been in Paris, Liam and Hope would've been married. You claim that you're sorry. Are you? I don't think so. I think you're happy things turned out the way they did because you've had a thing for Liam since you stepped foot on U.S. soil.
Good luck with your quest of winning Liam's heart. You might feel that you're in a comfortable position now, but just give it time. Hope and Liam, as dysfunctional as they are, always wind up getting back together, only to break up again. It's a vicious cycle. Don't think you're going to be the one to put an end to it.
Liam finally feels the pain Hope felt when he gave Hope's engagement ring to Steffy and married her, 24 hours after Hope caught them making out and broke off their engagement. What's the saying? Karma is a (you know what it is).
Subject: Move on
I don't feel sorry for you one bit. If you had gotten over your huge ego, you would've been on the plane with Hope like she asked you to be. Instead, you needed time to think. Exactly what did you need time to think about? Exactly why did you invite Ivy to Paris with you? Why didn't you call Hope from your phone when you saw her standing on the other side of the bridge, waiting for you? Did you really think Ivy was in distress? Yes, it might've been a scary moment, but I do recall her telling you that she was fine. That split-second decision changed the course of your life.
You are always preaching about honoring and respecting relationships. Will you be able to respect your brother's relationship with his new wife?
You and Hope could never quite make it work. There was always someone or something getting in the way. Maybe it's time for both of you to part ways once and for all. Honestly, I'm getting kind of tired watching the Liam/Hope saga, and I'm sure other people are with me on this one.
Go on and have fun with your ex-wife's cousin. It's obvious she wants to be the one to make you forget about a certain blue-eyed beauty. The question is, will you be able to move on? I think you can. You've done it before.
This week, Wyatt found out that his brother had indeed been in Paris to meet Hope. He openly admitted to being Hope's default guy. I like that he wasn't in denial.
Subject: The right man?
First off, I would like to say congratulations on your shotgun wedding. It was beautiful and spontaneous. I like how you told Liam that he needs to respect your marriage. That little dig about going to see Steffy and the fact that Ivy probably wouldn't have drowned was funny -- below the belt, but it was funny. Liam was very quick to stomp his feet and make all sorts of demands. Now, the tables have turned.
I also have to give you props for admitting that Hope will always have feelings for Liam. That means you're not in denial.
This marriage is not going to be easy. It's not like Liam stood Hope up; he just decided to put someone else ahead of her again. Of course he doesn't see it that way. My only advice to you is to be honest with your wife. Continue to make her laugh and put her first. Hopefully, things will work out for you.
Question, how did it feel to get your behind beaten by Bob Barker?
Hope is starting to rethink her hasty decision to marry Wyatt. What do you think, Scoopers? Should Hope get an annulment and try to make it work with Liam? Or should she honor her vows to Wyatt?
Subject: Trust your instincts
Congratulations Mrs. WYATT Spencer. Yes, I decided to use all caps on Wyatt's name. You married Wyatt. Liam wasn't there for you -- again. He had to save another Forrester woman from a near-drowning experience. You and Liam have a lot of history. That's exactly what it is. History. There has been too much heartache and pain cause by both parties. Enough is enough. Pull a Queen Elza from Frozen and "Let It Go!"
Of course you're probably not going to listen to me, and you're going to start pining for Liam again. Especially when you see him starting over with Ivy. If Wyatt leaves you alone, you deserve it. Stop being a glutton for heartache. You and Liam are like toxic magnets. You two can't seem to stay away from each other.
Please be honest with Wyatt and yourself. If you are not happy with Wyatt, get an annulment. Don't toy with his emotions. If you want to be in a constant merry-go-round of a relationship with Liam, go ahead. Just remember, Wyatt has never put another woman in front of you, where Liam has done it time and time again.
Quinn Fuller has gone from trying to kill Liam, to possibly being responsible for Ricardo's death, to pushing Ivy off a bridge for kicks. This lady is hilarious, but she is out of control. I wonder if she really got the treatment she so desperately needs.
Subject: Stop interfering
I'm not going to beat around the bush. I'm just going to come out and ask you. If Wyatt hadn't intervened, would you have killed Liam? Did you kill Ricardo to get Wyatt the HFTF diamond? Did you really check yourself into a mental health facility? Are you really receiving outpatient therapy?
Why are you so hung up on Bill? He wants nothing to do with you! He's too busy begging Brooke for forgiveness. Stop this crazy quest for reuniting Wyatt's family. Wyatt is a grown man. He is developing a relationship with his father, just fine. Stop interfering with his life. I know that you think you're helping him, but you're just making things worse.
Bill Spencer has turned from ruthless business tycoon to full-time wedding planner and Brooke Logan chaser. What happened?
Subject: Will the real Bill Spencer please stand up?
Who are you? What happened to you? The person you've become is nauseating. I've watched you whine about not being in control of your company, yet you're rarely running it. You're too busy playing wedding planner, and it seems to me you're not so great at it.
I think that you should stop chasing Brooke and get back to running a business. Brooke is disgusted by the part you played in Ridge's accident. I understand that you were just trying to teach him a lesson. I get that. However, having a man tossed out of a helicopter without a parachute or life jacket is not too smart. Now, because of the accident, Ridge has lost the ability to design. Can Brooke forgive you for taking away her true love's livelihood?
I like how you support Wyatt and his marriage with Hope and supported Liam through his breakup at the same time. It's nice to see that you were not playing favorites in regards to your adult sons.
FYI, if you think you are the only man who is hung up on Brooke, you're wrong. One of the fathers of her children is getting ready to make his move.
Brooke has Bill and Deacon vying for her affection. Who do you think she should choose?
Subject: Make a decision
Brooke, Brooke, Brooke. **SMH** Bill Spencer, the man you have chosen to spend your life with, several times, has disappointed you once again. I already told you that this relationship was a terrible idea, but you refused to listen to me.
Deacon, your youngest daughter's father and your eldest daughter's ex-husband, has proposed marriage. He claims that he loves you and that he's a changed man. He wants to be a family, a true family for Hope's sake. He wants you two to become grandparents together. Newsflash, you're already a grandmother. I digress.
Deacon is extremely hot. You two seem to get along pretty well. I just wonder how your daughter Bridget would feel if you hooked up with Deacon again.
Your relationship with Bridget hasn't been the same since the affair. Just like your relationship with Katie is not the same since the affair with Bill. How about finding a man who isn't and has never been involved with a member of your family?
Maybe you should take some time and do some reflecting. A majority of the men that you choose to get involved with seem to be self-destructive. Maybe you should consider being without a man for a while and focus on work. Get back in the lab and create the next big thing.
Stop blaming Quinn and Bill for Ridge's accident. Ridge played a huge part in that mess.
I wonder if Deacon is still in contact with his son, "Little D." Does Hope know that she has another brother out there? The last time we saw him, he was in Genoa City with Amber as his primary care giver. I think "Little D" is supposed to be older than Hope.
Subject: Where is your son?
Where is your eldest child? I find it funny that you've yet to mention him. Why are you teaming with Quinn, of all people, to win Brooke's heart again? Do you think that Brooke would forgive you if she ever found out that you were working with Quinn, knowing how she feels about her? Just be honest with her and yourself. Do you really think you have a chance with Brooke? Will Brooke consider a future with you, knowing how Bridget, her eldest daughter, your ex-wife, would react?
On a brighter note, I am happy that you are finally developing a relationship with your daughter. Hopefully, you don't screw up that relationship as you did others.
Ridge has survived a dangerous fall and memory loss. Now he's dealing with another obstacle. What can he do to overcome this latest setback?
Subject: sketching partner
Let me start off by saying that I'm very happy that you are alive and well. With that being said, what in the world is wrong with you? You brought this whole tragic situation on yourself. Who told you to hop on a plane and travel halfway around the world to show Brooke a selfie?
Stop blaming Bill and Quinn for your impairment. This is your own fault. Yes, they played a part in your accident, but no one held a gun to your head and told you to interfere in Brooke's life the way that you did.
I've come up with a solution to your problem. I remember you said that your brain couldn't tell your hands what to draw. Why not work with your sister-in-law, Caroline? She's a young, talented designer who wants to follow in your footsteps. Why not collaborate with Caroline. Share your ideas with her and watch her bring your ideas, infused with her own, to life on paper and on the cutting room floor.
I think it's a win/win situation.
Can you please take that dirty red string off Katie's finger? It was very cute at first, but enough is enough. If you plan on marrying the woman, get her a proper ring.
Good luck to you,
Rick is being too nice to Maya. I'm sick and tired of seeing this thirsty girl go after an unavailable man, especially when the man has told her several times to back off. It's not a good look. It's time to let her go!
Subject: Fire her, Mr. President
I think it's time you have Carter draw up termination papers for Maya Avant. Her advances are out of control. You have told her time and time again that you are a happily married man, and she's still all over you like a cheap suit. Can you please do me a favor? Can you buy her a case of Dasani, Fiji, or Evian water to quench her thirst and send her on her way?
I have a few choice words for Maya. I really don't like the type of woman she has turned out to be. I don't think she even really misses Rick. She misses Rick's name and lifestyle. Dayzee warned me about her, but I didn't listen. Shame on me.
I'm just going to keep this short and sweet. You need to stop looking so thirsty! Where is your self- respect? This "gold-digger" persona is not a good look. Were you always this greedy? I would say that Thomas Forrester is free and single in Paris and that you should go try to hook up with him, but I wouldn't want to burden poor Tommy boy with your disgraceful ways. Carter was right. He dodged a huge mess hooking up with you. Cut the crap! Get it together, or get gone!
My final email will be going out to Mrs. Caroline Spencer Forrester. I think she needs to know exactly what's going while she's visiting her moms on the East Coast.
Subject: Time to come home
It's time for you to get back to Los Angeles, now! Myrna, I mean Maya, is like a dog with a bone. She is after your man. Rick has told her several times to step off, but I think she has a hard time comprehending such a simple request. It's time for you to deal with her once and for all. Let her know that your name is Mrs. Eric Forrester Jr. and it's time for her to get stepping.
