Why Doesn’t Anyone File Marriage Licenses on Bold and Beautiful?

Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) appeared on edge as she questioned Stephanie (Susan Flannery) about whether Ridge (Ronn Moss) is returning home or not. Moss is no longer on the show, and there has been no official recasting news, so it’s pretty obvious Brooke is going to have to sit around and twiddle her thumbs.

At Bill (Don Diamont) and Katie’s (Heather Tom) house, Katie explained to Donna (Jennifer Gareis) that it turns out Brooke and Ridge weren’t officially married. Apparently, they never filed their marriage license. Seriously? SERIOUSLY?

We have endured countless rinse and repeat storylines with Hope (Kim Matula) and Liam’s (Scott Clifton) various botched weddings over recent months, one of which involved marriage licenses not being filed. Now we have to suffer a similar lazy, stupid, idiotic explanation for Ridge and Brooke’s demise?  If I were the average The Bold and the Beautiful viewer I’d be done with this infantile storytelling. Does B&B need a binky, because the average day-to-day storylines have been so free of substance we might as well be sucking on a pacifier?

The whole thing was so frustrating I couldn’t even enjoy it when Deacon Sharp (Sean Kanan) popped into Bill’s office.

I've tried; I really tried to look for glimmers of hope on The Bold and the Beautiful, but most days it is impossible.

    Luke, you are straight up crazy. I was thinking just the same thing when I watched the past two days. Then I had a flashback to my wedding and I did not send in my paperwork for 30 days after because I was scared once put on record it would be final. I guess Ridge thought the same. Seriously though if Ridge forgave Oliver/Thomas and Brooke surely he can forgive her texting Deacon. Sad way to send Ronn Moss Off. I am just happy I have not seen Liam, Hope or Steffy for two days.

    I haven’t been able to watch or record B&B for a couple of weeks now SO the reason that Ridge (Ronn Moss) disappears on the show and from Brooke is because Brooke TEXT Deacon?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    SERIOUSLY?! What is with the men on this show and the writers for writing the women… well, on both BELL soaps… so idiotically STUPID!?!!! Ridge has flipped from one woman to the other WHILE still with other women like I change my mind on how many extra pumps in my Starbucks coffee everyday! YET, Brooke texts Deacon to help her daughter against Bill and RIDGE LEAVES the city and Brooke because of that?!

    Bill Bell Jr should be the next Bell to be fired because that is just the LAZIEST way to write someone off and NOT even respectful of the character over 25 years!

    Thank God I haven’t had my DVR fixed. This crap pisses me off.

    I totally agree with all of this and your comments. I continue to watch BOLD through (misguided) loyalty in the hope that it will get better again and I suspect that many are the same as me.

    I NEVER want to see Liam and Hope ever again, we have had their crap storyline shoved down our throats for long enough, just the sight of either of them annoys me now.

    Thorne should be interim CEO at Forrester, Thomas in charge makes no sense whatsoever.

    Why did Bell think we’d want another BRIDGE wedding anyway? We’d already suffered through 6!

    Not filing the marriage papers, oh pu – lease!

    If it weren’t for the lack of soaps on the air, I’d ditch it and watch a different one, but I support all 4 because I don’t want any more to go.

    Brad is the Bell writing this hopeless mess, and yes SONY should kick his ass to the curb just like his sister in law.

    Two whole days without Manny, Moe and Jack, but then we get this drivel about Ridge leaving…..what a joke.

    Well, the reason sucks, but lets face it, Ronn Moss pulled a stunt by telling everyone that he would leave the show, icnluding Bell, no matter what he says to the press he never saw that coming. So Bell had to improvise. He did it in a louzy way, but I have to give some credit. Since Ridge is off screen, the show is moving forward, they are showing more storylines and it actually feels refreshing in a long long time. Even the exchange between Steffy/Hope was interesting enough to stay tuned. It is well paced, more balanced since a long time. Forgive Bell for the lazy Ridge-send off. I could care less if it turns out to be so much better in the end.
