Hope Wants Steffy OUT of Forrester Creations on The Bold and the Beautiful


Donna (Jennifer Gareis) told Eric (John McCook) that if things didn’t work out with Taylor (Hunter Tylo) she was ready to assist him with any of his needs. Pam (Alley Mills) interrupted Donna’s not-so-subtle implications by telling her she looked desperate.

The Forrester clan gathered for the quarterly sales meeting. Everyone was there, except Rick (Jacob Young).

Rick was with Maya (Karla Mosley) at the Forrester boutique on Rodeo Drive. A sales associate took Maya to look at some dresses, giving her the full-on Pretty Woman treatment. A second associate came up to Rick, referring to him as "Mr. Forrester". Rick informed her he was going incognito for the day. 

Back at Forrester Creations, the family reacted to the bad quarterly report, and news that Eric and Taylor were together. Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) pressed for more independence, while Thomas (Adam Gregory) said they needed to streamline production and cut underperforming lines.

Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) didn’t like the direction the conversation was heading in. She pointed out everything Thomas was saying had already been pitched to Eric and rejected. Eric said he’d like to revisit Thomas’ presentation.

At the boutique, another sales associate didn't get the memo about Rick keeping his true identity a secret. Maya freaked when she learned the down-on-his-luck bum she'd been offering cups of soup, and a place on her couch to, was really Eric Forrester, Jr.

After the meeting at FC, Hope (Kim Matula) went to Steffy’s office, where she promptly told her former stepsister to leave the company. Hope reasoned that Steffy had everything, Liam (Scott Clifton) a baby, the least she could do was give Hope free reign of the family's fashion dynasty! Hope is becoming one of the most selfish characters on The Bold and the Beautiful.

Brooke and Taylor argued about their children again. Taylor said she felt like a queen. I bet Brooke wanted to give her the Marie Antoinette treatment after that remark.

    That was a nice epi. With the exception of the fact that Thorne is so messed up. The guy doesnt even have a backbone. He accepted a while ago that his place is in the basement, and now he simply accepts it that his dad is taking over his “place”next to Taylor.

    Whats the point for Thorne to even be on this show??? Write the loser out, all the other Borrester children are gone, so who cares.

    Taylor, keeps repeating how Brooke went through the family, and its really getting at my nerves. NOBODY calls her out on her dumb remarks. Its an example of the lazy writing from Brad.

    I dont think the show is that great now. I mean, look at it like this. You have Caroline. All of a sudden shes turned into a villian for no reason at all. Was it even explained? Then you have Rick and Maya. They, what, met a week ago? And how wouldnt Maya not know who Rick Forrester is? I mean hes part of a worldwide fashion house known as Forrester Creations??

    Dont get me started with Taylor. Pathetic. When she and her kids whine about things, you would think they were living on poverty road or something. Sadly, Eric is acting like a pig. I mean your wife isnt dead 3 months before you jump into bed with Taylor. Not only that, but I agree with Brooke. I think Taylor is using Eric. I just think Taylor is mad that Stephanie died in Brooke’s arms and not hers. I think shes just jealous.

    Brooke’s a loser. She doesn’t care about Stephanie’s “memory” or Eric’s grief. She was perfectly fine when she thought Eric was doing Donna. It only bothered her because it was Taylor.

    Its almost like comparing apples and oranges to Brooke and Taylor, no matter what rewrites we’ve experienced. Sure, they BOTH have been through the family. BUT, to me, what makes Taylor more respectable is that she has NEVER done anything sexually with a man that was involved with someone else. Eric, Ridge, Thorne, Stephen, Rick, Whip…they were all single.

    Now lets compare that to Brooke.

    Yet it’s fine when Brooke stands in judgement of Taylor, but Taylor can’t repeat the same thing to Brooke? Give me a break…Brooke’s just as big a hypocrite as Taylor is. Always has been…in fact, she’s MORE of a hypocrite.

    I can’t watch the actress that plays Hope. She is terrible. She doesn’t look people in the eye when she is talking to them. She looks down or over-their-shoulders. She has the worst timing and over-enunciates her words. It drives me crazy. Acting is not rolling your eyes. You have to have timing and chemistry with the other characters.

    Now the writing on B&B is terrible.

    Can’t wait for Thorne’s revenge w/the Eric/Taylor relationship. Hope he really goes and for the president. He probably knows what Taylor is up to given their relationship prior to Eric.

    Well, Stoney, I dont hope you are serious about the Taylor/Brooke point of view.

    Taylor is a mess since she came back from the death. She slept through the whole forrester family after that. Including Rick. So she had all these brothers, and now she is doing daddy. SHe also had grandpa Ewing.And Eric is not only daady of her three former lovers, but He is the childrens grandfather FGS. Taylor is a ho, far more then Brooke is. Yes Brooke uses her sexuality, but there is the difference, she is the one that actually admits using it. Taylor pretends to be the decent woman, the goody goody. She is a hypocrite, a ho, and she has no common sense whatsoever.

    @lovevillains

    KM does a great job as Hope Logan. I like the younger crew, the most of them are very talented. JMW, KM, SC are a horribletriangle but they are all pretty decent actors. What I really like about Hope, that she is finally starting to show some sex appeal. She is dressing better lately, and she a great body I guess.

    So taylor is more of a hoe than Brooke because Brooke admits to being a hoe? that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

    If we really sit down and discuss who slept with who, and who had the most “affairs” out of it, there would be no competition whatsoever.

    You bring up some good points. But what about when she was with Whip there was scene where they were kissing and she said Ridge’s name which led to the downfall of there marriage? What about when Ridge was going to Taylor the last time? When that didnt happen, Steffy got all whiny because her family wasnt together. The very fact that Taylor would agree to such a quickie wedding is pathetic.

    I agree it did. I never said Taylor wasn’t pathetic. Because she IS. And so is Brooke, Steffy, and Hope for that matter.

    My point was that Taylor and Brooke both have indiscretions. But it’s a double standard for people to love when Brooke dishes it out, but call Taylor a hypocrite for doing the same thing…especially when Taylor slept around mostly when in legitimate relationships with these guys…

    I’m not going to get into the merits of either of Brooke or Taylor’s “HO-Dom” on the show because when you put them side to side, Taylor… Whether or not the men were single or not… Has had all the men in 3 families then Brooke has had in 2!!

    Forrester
    Logan
    Marone (since she had ridge when he was a forrester N then a marone)

    What I do like about it is that Brooke has never denied her transgressions with men. She is not ashamed of her sexual prowess or affairs and relationships. That’s healthy. It’s Taylor that seems to think she’s better because she
    Likes to see how she got the men totally different than Brooke when in actuality they got their men the EXACT SAME WAY, by being HOT, smart, and strong!!

    I don’t think Brooke is mad as much with Taylor for being with Eric (since Donna was mentioned but was also his ex wife) but that Taylor has been whining since the day Stephanie passed that the Logan’s got everything over her kids!! Sorry, but for one thing, Taylor’s kids are really the outsiders because they are not forrester a but marone’a and Rick is a forrester by Eric. (If they want to argue that case).

    I like this story because its not a triangle. It’s a fight. WHAT I DON’T LIKE ABOUT IT is that the show skipped the buildup and the story arc that should have come first in getting Taylor into Eric’s bed, by his side and in power. Like Caroline, it was a 180 and most of us fans are still reeling from the whiplash of both and can’t seem to get that pain out of our necks to relax and enjoy the story.

    Why can’t bill buy up stock and get a seat on the board.
