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.
