Bold and Beautiful Recaps
B&B Week of December 27, 2010
While breakfasting in bed with Brooke, Ridge opened the newspaper to find
the photo of his wife and Thomas in each other's arms. He was greatly
annoyed and Brooke once again assured that it was a publicity stunt. A
seething Ridge vowed to find out who was the photographer.
Taylor was quite perturbed to see the photo of Brooke and Thomas in the
paper. Whip urged her to be upset with Ridge because he still supports the
Taboo campaign. Thomas came downstairs and defended what happened with
Brooke. That only got Taylor more riled and after Thomas headed out to work,
Whip insisted to his wife that Ridge wouldn't be any help with this
situation. Taylor left and Aggie showed up, worried about Whip's connection
to the controversial photo. He wasn't the least bit concerned about being
found out and even boasted that he outsmarted Ridge.
At Forrester Creations, Brooke told Thomas that she and Ridge wanted to find
out who took the picture. Brooke was curious that Thomas didn't seem upset
over the fallout. Taylor arrived and wasn't happy to find Brooke and her son
together. Taylor reminded Thomas that he's a role model for young people but
he countered that his designs would be meaningless without "cutting edge"
publicity. A sickened Taylor voiced her disdain for the person who took the
Ridge huddled with Thorne about the photo and Thorne wondered if someone
splashed it on the Internet just to upset Ridge. That was enough food for
thought for Ridge, who recalled a "tense conversation" with Whip just before
the fashion show. Ridge charged over to Taylor's house and angrily
confronted Whip. "You did this," Ridge accused.
Ridge paid Whip a visit at home and accused him of putting the photo of Brooke and Thomas online. He warned Whip that he’d made a huge mistake by crossing him. Whip feigned innocence, but Ridge still thought that he was responsible. “Why would I do that to Taylor?” Whip questioned, as he attempted to keep his cool. Ridge reasoned that Whip had taken the photo without thinking his revenge scheme through. Whip still wouldn’t admit that he’d been the photographer, but argued that the picture was helping Taboo with its sales. He then taunted Ridge about the possibility of Brooke going after Thomas, but Ridge wouldn’t take the bait. When Whip joked that Ridge needed to see a shrink, Ridge calmly agreed and stated that he’d make an appointment with Taylor — and added that he’d let her know that it was Whip who’d made the referral. Whip accused him of ignoring Taylor’s concerns about Thomas. Ridge was tired of playing games with Whip and again warned him not to mess with his family. Whip insisted that he hadn’t done anything and wouldn’t want to ruin his marriage to Taylor. Ridge said that he was sorry for blaming Whip and left; when he was alone, Ridge noted that Whip was guilty and planned to make him pay.
Liam flashed back to finding Amber in his bed; a tear rolled down his cheek as he realized that he’d betrayed Hope. Just then, Hope called and invited him to join her for a surprise. Liam agreed to meet her and regretted the “surprise” that he was going to have to share with her.... Amber eyed a magazine cover of Liam and relished the thought that he believed they’d slept together. Someone knocked on the beach house door: it was her trashy mama, Tawny, back in town. Amber was not happy to see her, but Tawny wanted to hear about her daughter’s life. She asked if Amber was seeing a man with money. Amber replied that there wasn’t a man in her life — yet — and complained that she wasn’t feeling well. Tawny offered to clean up around her home and take Amber out to dinner, but Amber turned her down. Both then admitted that they’re broke. Tawny was disappointed because she’d been hoping that Amber could give her some cash. Soon Oliver returned home and Tawny eyed him curiously. She asked about his place and he explained that his friend was letting him stay at the beach house. Tawny wondered if he had money; he answered that he has a job and is able to make ends meet. Tawny was not happy to hear this, but still asked if she could stay. Oliver and Amber told her that she couldn’t. When he stepped away, Tawny called Ollie a loser and hoped that Amber was trying to land someone better. Amber shared that she’d tricked a man into thinking that they’d slept together — and that said guy is Bill Spencer’s son. Tawny was thrilled.
Liam met up with Hope and explained that he’d hit his head the night of his party. She surprised him with a romantic picnic and apologized for bailing on his party. Liam declared his love for her and apologized for not including Hope in his speech at the party. He then prepared to tell her about his night with Amber.
Hope surprised Liam with a romantic picnic, but wondered why he was being so serious. He admitted that he'd made a big mistake, but Hope didn't want to hear about it. She told him how much she's missed him. Liam again tried to tell her about his night with Amber, but Hope cut him off and asked him to wait before sharing whatever he had to say. Later, Hope was thrilled when Liam said that he wasn't working that night and preferred being with her. He apologized for getting so caught up in Bill's image for him at the party. Liam then gave her a bracelet. She asked him to put it on for her, but he hesitated and shared how something had gone down the night of the bash. "I swear to God, I don't know how this happened, but when I went home, I wasn't alone," he confided, adding that a person had followed him. "Was it a girl?" Hope asked. "It was Amber," he replied.
Tawny was impressed when Amber shared that she was going after Liam. Amber wanted her mom to leave, but Tawny insisted on staying put and helping her land the younger Spencer. Soon, Oliver joined them and an ill Amber complained that her mom was giving her heartburn. After Amber went to the store, Ollie and Tawny eyed each other awkwardly. Finally, Tawny asked about his and Amber's "situation" and he explained that he's in love with Hope. Tawny realized that Hope is with Liam. "You can go now," she told Ollie and rudely dismissed him. Amber returned and Tawny filled her in on her conversation with Oliver. Amber didn't want to talk to her mother and again demanded that Tawny leave. Later, Amber revealed to her mother that she's pregnant.
Ridge returned home from Whip's place. An amorous Brooke was waiting for him, but Ridge wasn't in the mood. Instead, he told her that Whip was the one who'd taken the photo of her and Thomas. Brooke had a hard time believing it, but Ridge noted that it was an attack against him. They wondered what Whip would have to gain from photographing Brooke and Thomas; Ridge didn't think that Whip was thinking clearly and revealed how Taylor had called out Ridge's name during sex. Brooke couldn't believe that Taylor had shared this with her ex-husband. She was also surprised that Whip would hurt his stepson. Ridge noted that Whip was so angry that he wasn't thinking about who could get hurt and planned to stop his rival from doing anymore harm.
Meanwhile, Whip explained to Aggie that he was trying to teach Ridge a lesson; she reasoned that driving a wedge between Brooke and Ridge wasn't the best way to keep Ridge out of Whip's marriage to Taylor. Whip argued that Ridge has been letting Taylor and Brooke fight over him for years. Aggie warned that his stunt would blow up in his face — and Ridge would end up going straight to Taylor. Whip disagreed and believed that he was getting to him. Aggie thought her cousin was out of his mind.
Liam confessed to Hope that he'd spent the night with Amber. Hope asked if they went all the way. "How can you do this to us?" she whispered. He tried to explain how he couldn't remember the details of that evening, but Hope wouldn't listen and ran off. "Hope!" he bellowed. He followed her home and continued with his story about Amber appearing in his bed, but Hope didn't want to hear about it. Liam wasn't sure that he and Amber had really had sex. "You woke up in bed with Amber," Hope said tearfully and asked if they'd used protection. "Amber could be pregnant right now," she noted. "Don't go there," Liam pleaded. Hope stated that Amber is the type of girl who knows how to get what she wants. "How could you let this happen?" she asked. Liam begged Hope to forgive him, but she just gave him an unhappy look and didn't say anything.
Amber informed Tawny that she's pregnant — with Oliver's kid. Tawny lectured her about not having used protection. Amber believed that she was being given a second chance after having lost her first child, but Tawny didn't think it was a good idea for Amber to have Oliver's baby. Amber was sure that things would work out, but Tawny reminded her daughter that she's homeless and unemployed. Amber insisted on having her baby. She went to tell Oliver her news, while Tawny wished that Amber had gotten pregnant by Liam instead. A light bulb went off over her head and Tawny interrupted Amber and Ollie's conversation. She advised Amber to name Liam as the father. Amber thought she was nuts, but Tawny insisted that her child would get more out of life by being a Spencer heir. "Don't tell Oliver that he's the father," Tawny instructed. She was certain that Liam would marry her daughter and then they'd both be rich.
Ridge paid Taylor a visit and she ranted about the Thomas and Brooke photo. Ridge insisted that nothing was going on between them and accused Whip of taking the picture as a means to get back at him. Taylor scoffed at this, but Ridge was certain that Whip was responsible. Whip soon returned home and spied Ridge and Taylor embracing. He accused Ridge of badmouthing him. "Who says I told Taylor anything?" Ridge argued. The men exchanged some words, but Taylor interrupted them and asked Whip if he really did take the photo and put it online. Whip declared his love for Taylor and reminded her that he'd never purposely hurt her or Thomas. He then turned the tables on Ridge and noted that Ridge was responsible for putting Thomas in harm's way by not killing the Taboo campaign. Taylor again asked if Whip took the picture and Whip flatly denied it. Taylor exploded in anger at Ridge for creating Taboo and asked him to leave. As he departed, Ridge gave Whip a look letting his rival know that it wasn't over.
