why is rick lieing on top of things?
1. he wants to free up caroline so he can make a beeline to caroline.
2. he wants to blackmail for fc and the lofty position there,
3. rick will try to take advantage of hope and liam's breakup to get control of spencer publications as will.
4. i do not see any genuine concern for hope out of steffy, bill, liam i am not sure about yet, rick and this is totally low to even go there. no young bride should ever have to go through what hope got put through at all.
