HomeTVThe Bold and the BeautifulThe Bold and the Beautiful Daily Recap: Steffy Confronts Rick Mike Jubinville April 23, 2009 15 Comments Taylor and Ridge hid out upstairs, while their slonkey daughter blasted Rick’s ass downstairs. The drama continued to unfold as Steffy tried to make heads or tails of the recorded conversation that Ridge made. Rick insisted that he was set up and provoked by Ridge. Steffy did not believe him and played the recording of Rick’s utter disrespect for her and her father. Rick is a bit too old to be playing the "your dad made my mom and me miserable our entire lives" card, especially since Brooke is married to the guy, but you can’t blame Rick for trying! Steffy insisted on knowing what her father said, or did, to provoke such ugly, hateful words. She waivered a bit until the last part was played and she realized that the man she marries has to love HER and look at HER on their wedding day, not her father. Ummmm, maybe I should rephrase that? I mean, Ridge and Thomas might be feeling a bit left out since they haven’t ridden the Rick train. Choo choo, chugga chugga. Taylor and Ridge were hunkered down in a remote mansion bedroom fretting about how things would turn out. Ridge had faith that they raised their daughter to respect herself and not fall for every charming guy that talks to her…*cough Marcus* or *cough Rick*. Taylor told Ridge that she was grateful and thankful for helping her through this extremely difficult time. ‘Cause it’s all about Taylor, not her daughter. Taylor is a psychiatrist, but to me she shows immense weakness at times. I know this isn’t the way she was before, maybe death changed her. Downstairs, Rick admitted what a tool he was, but it was because Ridge brought out the worst in him and he realizes that he hates himself more than anyone. His all-consuming self hatred is what came out and he feels that Steffy can help him change and accept himself. He begged for forgiveness and pleaded for one more chance. Steffy’s blank face said it all. What will she do? Brooke/Donna/Katie: The Logan gals made an appearance. Brooke was suddenly upset about the whereabouts of her dashing destiny man Ridge. Donna and Katie informed her that Taylor swooped in and whisked him away. Brooke said that Taylor has been relying on Ridge more since Phoebe died and his distraction with Rick has creeped into their bedroom. I guess there was ONE night when Ridge wanted a break, so Donna piped up about how her honey bear needs a pill. Seriously, this entire scene was a throwaway. It was pointless. It could have had value if Brooke were truly concerned about Ridge’s obsession with Rick and Steffy, or even Taylor. To have it reduced to Donna’s comedy was life I’ll never get back. Luke blogged how Donna earned the Quote of the Day and you can read his comments HERE. 15 Responses jpp1975 April 23, 2009 I’m almost surprised Rick didn’t have a go at Thomas, this storyline is so ridiculous. And did Thomas ever bring up that Ric stole barely-legal Caitlin, Hector’s daughter, away from him? Maybe point that out to sis, that he loves grabbing younger women away from their appropriately aged boyfriends? Or perhaps the writer didn’t watch B&B a couple years ago. Log in to Reply sodsince16 April 24, 2009 I continue to be surprised by the fact the I like Steffy this week. I thought it was a step in the right direction when she said, “I deserve better” to Rick. BTW – What does Steffy do at Forrester? Has she graduated from college? Log in to Reply Darren Lomas April 24, 2009 I have a pill for Ridge – it’s called cyanide I wish that darn plane had kept on going and flattened the pomopous windbag… Steffy and Rick could’ve crash in the ocean… give the viewers what they WANT, Brad Log in to Reply Mike Jubinville April 24, 2009 Darren, you never fail to make me laugh! Log in to Reply Darren Lomas April 24, 2009 Mike I spelt "pompous" wrong though – darn it! Good work on the daily recaps! I would’ve offered to help, but I don’t get to see B&B till a day after it airs… Log in to Reply season1217 April 24, 2009 I would’ve offered to help, but I don’t get to see B&B till a day after it airs… It figures you’d be a day behind.:P Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 April 24, 2009 Darren, you not missing much. But the Jackie and Nick and Stephanie scenes are great and far few in between anything good on the show. I wish Steffy and Rick would of just disappear never to be seen or heard from again. and take Ridge and Donna with them LOL. Log in to Reply Darren Lomas April 24, 2009 Oh, I agree – the Jackie M stuff and the stories around those characters are a breath of fresh air after months of pungent crap… Season – you’re only cranky coz there was no new episode of Lost this week Log in to Reply season1217 April 24, 2009 Jack is that you?!Oh, I’m sorry… you were saying something, Darren? Log in to Reply SoapSlut April 24, 2009 did anyone hear the extra long chicken clucking Rick did on that tape? my sister and I almost died laughing. Log in to Reply Darren Lomas April 24, 2009 Season, LOL. It’s all about Miles for me now. Woo hoo, he rocks! I’m fickle, like Brooke Logan… SoapSlut (*nice name*), I don’t think I saw the chicken clucking yet, but the train impersonation cracked me up… "choo choo chugga chugga chugga chugga…." I hated it yet loved it… Log in to Reply season1217 April 24, 2009 I can’t believe you’re cheating on Daniel. Log in to Reply cornelison April 26, 2009 Donna’s son is also a drag on the script. Maybe the new writers can “flesh out” the useless characters and give us more talent. It’s baffling that all the characters are supposed to run a company but they can barely function as human beings. Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 April 26, 2009 Marcus is a token black character for B&B and not working, Brad. he also the son of the most hated woman on B&B that people hated and don’t care about, so that two strikes you out. I do also agree that he can’t act and the character isn’t working and Steffy and Rick romance isn’t either. So get rid of three of them and the fans will be happy.
