#BoldandBeautiful fans it’s Cliffhanger Friday again. Yes, I have been notably missing from my column, mainly because there’s been nothing interesting going on. Now that the infamous Sheila Carter is back, it warranted my return, No need to delay, “Let’s Talk About Soaps.”
First, the title “What Difference Does It Make,” in regards to RJ and Coco. It makes no difference because fans don’t care about them, their PSA “Don’t Text and Drive” storyline, or their teen love. It’s evident all over social media that “teen scene – teeny bopper love” RJ and Coco are useless by the many comments demanding they be written off along with the Spectra clan. What the writers fail to realize is that this is an adult show and no one is trying to watch “Teen Beach” on the Disney channel.
They are old and dated, even their story lines are old and dated. Fans definition of “summer fun” does not include RJ and Coco. The faster they get them off our screens, the better. The time they are sucking up, could easily be given to other characters that fans ACTUALLY care about. But enough about this snoozefest couple, I must move on.
Earlier in the week after my girl Sheila almost made Charlie crap in his pants. She went on to drop that dirty bomb on Eric about Quinn and Ridge. Yes, yes Eric was in denial at first, he refused to believe his precious Quinn could do such a thing and his son Ridge could betray him with his wife. Wait, hold up right here; I might can give a halfway pass for him not believing that Quinn would betray him with Ridge. Quinn is crazy; but she’s never been a cheater. But Ridge, for real Eric? You couldn’t believe that Ridge would try to take your wife? Really????? Ridge is notorious for taking your wife and his brothers.
But my girl Sheila was relentless, she wasn’t letting go. She dropped those bombs all over the house. When she said, “That’s the reason why Ridge and Brooke didn’t get married in Australia,” it sent him reeling and throwing a glass.
As you know the two culprits, Ridge and Quinn, storms in after their sudden sense of morality and wanted to come clean with Eric; but the deed was already done. What others failed to do, Brooke, Katie, Ivy, and even Charlie; Sheila had the courage to do it, albeit she had ulterior motives.
The cheater’s creed is “deny, deny, deny” and I was amazed that Quinn and Ridge fell for Sheila’s lack of evidence and confessed; and confess they did. They tried hard to get Sheila to leave, but she was going nowhere and when Eric began to see there was a shimmer of truth to Sheila’s accusations; he demanded Sheila stay. The two had to confess right in front of Sheila and we know that she loved it and was eating it up.
Well today, Quinn bolts over to Katie’s to accuse her of telling Sheila and to blame Sheila for Eric being upset. But Katie was having none of it, she was like, “What Difference Does It Make,” how Eric found out, you betrayed him.
It was evident during their conversation that Katie still has some unresolved issues with $Bill and Brooke. This is a story line Katie should be in instead of being Ms. Busybody up in everyone’s business. Anyway…..
Then the unbelievable happened; Katie hugged Quinn. WHAT???? Didn’t this chick just the other day pull a gun on her? Although the scene was riveting because Heather and Rena are both fantastic actresses; this is where Bold makes absolutely no sense. The confiding and the emotional conversation would have been better and more believable with Ivy instead of Katie. Quinn and Ivy has a developed relationship and although Ivy slapped Quinn into next week; the reason she did it was because of these shenanigans. It’s almost like Katie has Ivy’s forever missing story line. That interaction today was classic Ivy and Quinn.
Quinn returned to the Forrester mansion only to find that Eric had left.
Ridge was more concerned about Eric than his son RJ because he left him at the hospital for Brooke to take care of him. Truthfully, Ridge isn’t concerned about Eric, what he is concerned about was when Eric called him Ridge MARONE.
What happened to Quinn, did someone hit her with a stupid stick? When Ridge returned she went through this long conversation with Ridge. Girlfriend, the LAST person you needed to be talking too is Ridge, you should have told him to leave. But noooooooooo, she went on this spill about how Eric was the only one who loved her and believed in her, wait; Deacon did that, but he wasn’t good enough. Ok, moving on. While she spilled her guts out asking to Ridge, “Did I do that?” “Is it over?” He stood there with goo goo eyes. She sat on the couch staring into space and Ridge kneeled down and placed his hand on her shoulder.
So, what will happen next? Will Bold make fans happy and send RJ and Coco to the back burner? Will Ridge move his hand a little further; and he and Quinn end up in the master bedroom making mad passionate love? Where is Eric? Did Sheila kidnap him or did he go willingly? You tell me?
