Bold and Beautiful: A WTF Moment for Katie!

Will wonders never cease? Rumor has it the August 12 issue of Soap Opera Digest will reveal that Katie Logan is pregnant. Apparently she had near-death sex on Catalina Island with Nick when the cameras weren’t rolling.

Sensible Katie was allowed to be romanced by Nick during those brief days she had left to live. Bridget selflessly stepped aside to make her remaining time special. It’s about to bite her in the butt. Katie finds out about her delicate condition during a follow up exam for her recent heart transplant.

The Bold and the Beautiful has the ability to take a tired plot point and revitalize a rivalry or invigorate a character. The most recent roll-your-eyes moment was Taylor finding out that Jack was Brooke’s biological mother. It turned out to be a surprising storyline that reignited Brooke and Taylor’s simmering feud and had Taylor running for the nearest phone to order up a case of vodka.

Katie’s pregnancy is a stretch, even for me. Aside from the obvious health issues, this latest development should send Bridget right over the edge. First it was her mother, now it’s her aunt. One can only hope that Katie’s revelation will finally give the simpering Bridget the sharp edge she had when blasted Brooke for wavering between Nick and Ridge. Ashley Jones has proven she has the ability, so I say bring it on!

    Although, I have never been a fan of this version of Bridget I hope that this is what Bridget needs in order to start raising some hell. Marlena De Lacroix wrote about this and I have to say I agree, the treatment of this character is masochistic. This woman should have serious trust issues.

    Wow … B&B gets worst every second you see it and now this. It’s just painful. And I thought B&B could never get so close to GL in the competition about the worst soap at this time.

    And if this goes on … I will definitely stop watching.

    Wow I thought only Days of our Lives pulled this “it happened off camera” crap!

    Some one needs to remind these people that in the world of Soap Operas, people tune in to see the lovin’ taking place!

    This is ridiculous. At the very least, there better be some explanatory flashbacks. I wish Thorne or some random guy besides Nick was the dad, that would be slightly less horrible.

    Please, Bell, put this crappy s/l out of its misery and just put Nick and Katie together and stop torturing us with this bs about Nick being honorable and noble when his is a pig just like Eric and Ridge. He always put the Forrester down for being low, amoral, scumbags, but he is being a bigger bas@#$% or equal jerk than the Forresters men, except for Thorne. Thorne is being written as dumb and just being on the outside looking in.

    Shooting him would be too easy. Although, she would have the perfect insanity defense. I want her to be like Jess/Tess on OLTL. Maybe she could develop a split personality (Bridget/Gidget?) or she could just stay Bridget and ruin everyone’s life, slow and tortuous, while pretending to be sweet little Bridget. There is only so much she can take. This is getting ridiculous. If she doesn’t go crazy on everyone after this then it won’t matter what the hell happens anymore. I hope this is what the writers have been building up to and not just another loss for her.

    Jamey, thanks for saying what we have been saying all along. Bridget is so stupid and dumb that she take Nick because she feels she will be lonely for the rest of her life. Please, just because Nick is with you, doesn’t mean he wants to be. I just sick of this stupid triangle and put it out of its misery.

    I don’t feel sorry for Bridget. The girl has yeast for brains. She seriously needs to go to the convenient link right here on Daytime Confidential-and purchase a copy of He’s Just Not That Into You!
