The Bold and the Beautiful
What happened during the week of December 10, 2012
In Stephanie's video about her final wishes, Stephanie nullified Thomas' trust and left her Forrester holdings to her husband. Thomas and Taylor were devastated by the news, and Thomas' attorney advised against challenging the decision. Eric decided to put a halt to the changes Thomas had been implementing at Forrester, and as the family factions bickered over who should control the business, Eric devised a catwalk competition to determine who'd help him run Forrester -- Brooke's kids or Taylor's. Caroline was shocked to discover she'd confessed the truth to Bill, not Liam, and Bill revealed that he'd sent Liam on an extended business trip away from Caroline's guilty conscience. Bill hoped he and Caroline would be on the same page by the time Liam returned. Taylor secretly overheard Bill and Brooke talking about the kiss they'd shared. Bill's "Spencer senses" tingled, and he sensed that Taylor suspected him and Brooke. While Brooke was assuring Bill that there was no way Taylor knew anything, Taylor was telling the information to an incredulous Katie.
