HomeTVThe Bold and the BeautifulLast Week’s B&B: Ridge Makes Taylor And Brooke Weak At The Knees, Part 52,739 Darren Lomas July 26, 2009 14 Comments Steffy saw Brooke and Ridge hugging and got a little verklempt. Brooke went home to snivel over pictures of Ridge again, but Steffy was hot on her heels. Brooke said she’d “made a mistake” in ditching Ridgiculous. Steffy slammed Brooke for causing her father pain and was adamant that Ridge needed the peace and stability of Taylor/Steffy/Thomas. Stephanie gave Whip the lowdown on Brooke’s current situation and sent him over there to try and keep her away from Ridge. Brooke was surprised to see Whip in LA. Of course, there was some reminiscing and the two of them had a pretty fun smooch. Brooke yanked his chain by pretending she was ready to get fresh in the bedroom: “take me upstairs.” Alas, she once more confessed she would always love Ridge, and she wasn’t ready for humpy-pumpy yet. Meanwhile, back at the crypt, Ridge told Taylor she was “stuck with him.” How true. Then Taylor had to go and spoil it all by saying that he was “the best thing that ever happened to either one of us,” meaning Brooke or Taylor. Seriously, we’re expected to buy that, despite the fact that he keeps pawing them both? Ugh. They both look pathetic trying to “win” that jackass. Ridge didn’t look too thrilled at Taylor’s marriage proposal, although their grown children clapped and whooped. Good ol’ daddy Ridge. The best cougar in daytime. Thankfully, Jackie M livened up proceedings somewhat. Conflict was brewing between Whip and Owen as Whip undertook a PR campaign for “Indulge”. Bridget turned down the chance to be the face of the company, so Jackie stepped up instead, which didn’t go down too well with Owen. Jackie played the cougar, with a bevy of male beauties at her beck and call, then in the bathtub with Owen. Lesley-Anne Down was a joy to watch, as usual, and there was a nice spark between Jackie and Whip, which could be interesting down the line. Ridge went to see Brooke. He told her he needed “peace and quiet” in his life. They tongued again. He told her, “I love you, but I’m going to marry Taylor.” Gee, that’s impassioned love, right there. After he left her sobbing, Katie walked in on a devastated Brooke and talked her into contacting the doofus. Brooke couldn’t help herself and sent Ridgiculous a text and a picture from their last (invalid) beach wedding. Thomas: "Remember the time dad impregnated Morgan because he thought you’d emailed your approval?" Taylor: "Stop it, you guys are cracking me up." Taylor recounted her love story (and I use that term lightly) with Ridge to their children. Viewers gasped as she told her twit children how Ridge came to find her in St. Thomas, but omitted the fact that he was trying to get over Brooke. We watched in wonder as she recounted her cemetery resurrection and how she reclaimed Ridge. She forgot that Ridge kicked her to the curb for being a sanctimonious hypocrite shortly afterwards. It’s awfully boring to have this family reuniting over poor dead Phoebe… none of them ever seem to give two figs about poor dead Darla, poor blind Hector or poor dead Shane. Bridget and Nick had a one month wedding anniversary, which was okay if you like that kind of thing. He gave her some earrings and for once didn’t moan about his mother’s sex life. Morticia and Gomez - together at last. Steffy intercepted Brooke’s text message to Ridge. She replied, telling Brooke not to contact Ridge again. Taylor received a ring from Ridge and nearly wet herself with glee. Brooke continued to try and get Ridge back by text, saying “I will love U 4Ever – B”, which made me puke in my mouth a little bit. Steffy deleted that travesty and texted Brooke a picture of Taylor with Ridge, along with the words “leave me alone.” Brooke was sobbing again as she read the message supposedly from Ridge. Next week maybe she will text, “U R gross. Destiny schestiny. I am so over you – B”. Well, I can dream, right? 14 Responses josser July 27, 2009 Jackie & Owen = Hot! I love that picture of Jackie and Owen in the bathtub. CBS should be sending snapshots of this photo shoot to its publicity arm. Erica and Ryan? Puh-leeze! _____________ Log in to Reply josser July 27, 2009 Morticia and Gomez? More like Herman and Lily! Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 July 27, 2009 Thomas: You remember the time when Dad have mom and Brooke made them try out to win a date with him? That was so funny. And remember when Dad don’t care about us unless Brooke is around? Remember when dad and Bridget almost slept together? Log in to Reply DaytimeFan0001 July 27, 2009 I enjoyed this week a lot! BrookeRidgeTaylor didn’t fall flat for me. The Jackie M stuff was great and that is the stuff that truly carries the episodes. Good to see they didn’t retire Nick and Bridget. They had some nice scenes together. I was saying during an episode they should get the picture of Owen and Jackie in the tub together and make it really hot and but “The Bold and the Beautiful” on it CBS Daytime and put that up on Sunset, or somewhere over there. Really expensive, but this soap needs the 18-25 demo…so they should follow in the footsteps of their sister channel the CW with their big ads for GG and Melrose Place….just sayin! Log in to Reply The_Moustache July 27, 2009 why is everyone using iPhones, is Apple sponsoring the show? the only stuff that i enjoyed watching was the Jackie M shennanigans, they were hilarious and fun and the cast looked like they were enjoying themselves too. Whip & Jackie are so going to hook up. the Axis of Evil that is Brooke/Ridge/Taylor is nauseating. 20+ years and Ridge still cant make up his mind about whom he loves?! Steffy & Thomas are just setting up Taylor to get hurt again by Ridge. Log in to Reply josser July 27, 2009 I swear that bathtub picture is the most titillating image on daytime in years. Log in to Reply Darren Lomas July 27, 2009 Siomonstuart, love your "reminiscences" LOL. Joss, you’re right about Jackie/Owen… they’re easily the most interesting couple on B&B at the moment… as for Herman and Lily… tee hee… hiow about we Lurch and Cousin It? Or The Crypt Keeper and The Corpse Bride? I’m sorry… it’s all I can do to keep myself entertained when they’re onscreen wittering about Phoebe… Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 July 27, 2009 Ridge and Taylor can go on a permanent honeymoon with the kids and never to return, LOL. I sorry, but Ridge is a asshole and Taylor is a fool to get back with the wooden one. Brooke can be a sexy, single CEO of Forrester and compete with Jackie M and show a real rivalry of the fashion world. Log in to Reply Mike Jubinville July 27, 2009 I’m sorry Joss, I can’t get past that picture. It just ain’t fittin’. Log in to Reply snizzle July 27, 2009 I’m enjoying small pockets of the show including the Jackie M stuff and Bill/Katie possible pairing. Unfortunately there’s just too much Ridge and the younger actors are just horrible. Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 July 27, 2009 I am so sick of brooke crying over that fool. She should be throwing herself a big party for getting rid of him, LOL. Brooke, no more crying. Log in to Reply dsrbroadway July 28, 2009 At first, I thought the picture was titillating. Then I realized it looked like she was doing a water birth. Log in to Reply season1217 July 28, 2009 More like Herman and Lily! I find that insulting to one of the best couples to ever grace television. What did Herman and Lily ever do to deserve that comparison? Log in to Reply josser July 27, 2009 DaytimeFan0001, What are you talking about? Ads? Sunset? Do you mean Sunset Boulevard? You’ve lost me.
