B&B: What's Up Today at Forrester Creations? - Daily Chat

Recommended Posts

This is how bad the writing has gotten.  Yesterday, much of the episode was wasted on the Taytots grilling Ridge about what's going on with Brooke and how much better off he'd be in a "drama-free" *cough* marriage to Taylor. Ridge kept staunchly denying that anything was wrong with Brooke or their marriage. Two seconds later, Ridge abruptly decided to go home from work "to check on Brooke." /scratches head

Yes. Betty deserved much better.

That was some BS that they hyped an episode as being a tribute when it was a 5-second flash of Betty's picture at the end of the episode. 

And another terrible episode at that.

I wish Brooke had just come clean about what really happened on NYE. I appreciate the Breacon 1.0 flashbacks as that's the only thing sizzling about show these days, but I cannot deal with the NYE 2021 any freaking more.

SK's return has been wasted after showing so much promise and it comes off now that he doesn't really care all that much about Hope and being back in her life and a good father/grandfather, but it's all about getting back with Brooke.

Any reunion they might have is now tarnished and even though I do think Deacon absolutely loves Hope and is thrilled to have her in his life again, he's been too tunnel-visioned where Brooke is concerned. 

With Ridge now acting like a decent human being and caring husband for a change, it makes it all the more worse.

Wow the actress playing Sequoia (the model) managed to upstage the actor playing Zende in her first scene !  (sorry if she has been around before… it’s the first time I have noticed her, but I admit I don’t really pay attention to the models).

 Shouldn’t he be improving by now?

Faint praise indeed!  The actor who plays Zende has zero presence.

Just wow, NuTay. Showing up unannounced at Brooke’s house to offer “your support” and to hope she’s really okay? Well, aren’t you just the most wonderful, understanding human on the planet. How about you mind your own damn business? Oh. Shut Up, Sheila!!!

Taylor is a shark, sniffing blood in the water.

She doesn't give two shits about Brooke. 

Brooke would be an utter fool to trust her one iota, much less counsel her, after she divulged things then-patient Katie shared in confidence (as in doctor/patient confidentiality) with Bill and she also poked into Brooke's medical files and blabbed that she had miscarried Bill's baby.

Then again, this is the same "professional" who counseled Thorne and Aly after she killed Darla, the wife and mother. 

I had to laugh at Taylor having her nose out of joint with Sheila being nosy about Brooke because that's HER job.

And again with the damn NYE's flashbacks.

I get the show is more bargain basement than Spectra Fashions, but please keep it moving. It's been nearly THREE WEEKS. 

More Paris/Zende/Carter boringness.

Maybe Taylor and Carter should hook up. They are the Queen and King of Thirstyville.

I have a burning question. How does Shiela afford to live in a hotel room. That hotel room looks kind of pricey to me. 

Doesn’t Zende also design for HFTF.  That dress the model was wearing doesn’t shout HFTF. 

Paris is making better choices on what she is wearing. It looks like she has moved on from Hot Topic to Nordstrom’s Rack.  A new hair style also needs an update. 

Taylor are you that full of yourself that you would think that Brooke, of all people, would open up to you.  I bet that Taylor is more about hearing juicy stories than actually trying to help anyone.  Taylor has to make herself feel superior by telling Brooke she’s a psychiatrist like Brooke wasn’t aware of that. The same way Stuffy has to make herself feel superior by mentioning that she’s Co-CEO every time she gets a chance. 

Who wears a white jacket to work at a desk. By the end of the day her sleeves will be quite soiled.  

Taylor and Shiela today remind me of Tweedle De and Tweedle Dum.

They are dressing Paris much better. I loved the style and color of the dress and the jacket made her look more professional.  That hair though, hell no.

Brooke’s hair is looking sad these days.  It drags her face down and makes her look older than she should.  Nuff said before about NuTay’s wig!

Glad Zende is taking Paris up on playing the field.  WTH was the model wearing? Looked like a toga.

NuTay’s little whispering voice all the time drives me crazy.  She sounds so sweet but is an interfering bitch.  Ridge of course doesn’t see that.  

Enough of the flashbacks to NYE already!  We remember, we are not stupid viewers!

I think Paris looked like she was dressed for a Star Trek interview, but it is an improvement over the clown shit she's worn in the past.  I still don't get all the guys' obsession with her though.  She's snoozeworthy but, to be fair, so are Zende and Carter.

Heaven forbid Brooke wants to keep what's going on private. Now Taylor shows up wanting to involve herself. 

Paris can leave anytime and take Carter with her. He has no respect or loyalty to his friends, just keep cheating.

WHY? Why is Sheila so all about destroying Brooke? Shouldn't she be plotting against Steffy? I'm sure there is some convoluted reasoning but I've barely been paying attention.

As others have said, Steffy has slapped Sheila at least twice. Sheila made Lauren's life a living hell for the better part of a decade over less.

The only reason I can come up with for the swerve on attention is that Bell wants to ramp up Brooke hate, because there's just no excuse for any of this. They want to make Steffy a heroine, Sheila's right there to stir up trouble in HER life IIRC, Sheila torturing Lauren was the first time a lot of people felt bad for her after her reign as the Head Bitch of Genoa City in the 80s and Steffy is inexplicably popular as it is. Fanfic writers could do better over their lunch break.

The writers need someone something to occupy Brooke's time when Ridge goes away for an extended time. (BTW? When is this ever going to happen?) Heaven forbid she just spends quality time alone or with family or focusing on her career. 

Does Taylor have another new wig? I thought we were going to see KA's real hair by now.

I predict that the truth will come out and Ridge will blow off to Forrester Int'l in a huff and leave Brooke to fend for herself which will make her easy prey for Deacon. But then that leaves  Taylor dangling for what is it ... six months?  Maybe there's been a change in plans for TK. 

In any case, I wish they would wrap this up. I am tired of seeing Brooke's stricken face and stingy hair moping around in her drab outfits. This is one SL that really needs to be a warp speed.

Zende and Paris are such bad actors. Ugh. I would say that watch and they will both end up in primetime roles but Paris was already on "Empire." I don't remember her being that bad.

Was typing up the same thing lol, though I forgot about Laruen which is another great point! We're officially in Bradley Bell's, "Bold and the Beautiful: The Bold Multiverse", this is the universe where Sheila cares more about being talked down to by Brooke than being backhanded by Steffy like she had her on the corner and was 100 dollars short one night. 

I wouldn't have a problem with Steffy's popularity if it felt more realistic/genuine. As in it was more accepted what a faithless, conniving, hypocritical bitch she(& her mom) is and people loving/embracing that about her. Instead of "Queen" Steffy up against the horrible, man stealing self-righteous Logans1! Maybe I haven't been around enough, but almost no one is like that with other soap bad girls, namely Phyllis. The most praise I see for her these days is "I remember/miss 90's Phyllis! She was one crazy bitch! Lol look at her go!" Not "OMG Poor Phyllis having to deal with these self-righteous whores Christine & Sharon1!" Maybe not a lot of people like Sharon anymore but a lot of people utterly despise Phyllis(unless GT is playing her) even in a love to hate her kind of way. It's still hate.

Shouldn't the imminent, multi-talented Dr. Hamilton Hayes Forrester be able to recognize Sheila's Brooke fixation? Shouldn't she further recognize what Sheila having a fixation means? 

Oh, Paris got a little dose of reality, and what being single and free actually means. But she is down with it because it opens up the door for her and Carter. 

I positively hate that look Carter gets when he is talking to Paris. It is like he is just overwhelmed with her or something and has to really focus to get his words out. Stupid, stupid Show. Carter/Katie and Paris/Thomas would have been a thousand times more interesting. 

And they can fuck the hell right off with this new, loving, caring and attentive Ridge. Pure plot contrivance to make Brooke look worse than she already does when the reveal happens. And of course, to give the TayTots and their wretched momma more ammo against that Drama Queen Brooke. I doubt Steffy would even care the whole thing was brought about by Sheila. I would lay bets that the hateful wench would actually seek out Sheila in order to thank her for getting her mommy and daddy back together.

Haven't Paris and Zende been together for a while by B&B standards? I know it was at least before Hayes was born because we were all going WTF with her moving in with newlyweds with a newborn and that was at least six to eight months ago. In that time, most other couples would have been engaged, married and divorced had the marriage annulled by now!

Wait a minute ... isn't Carter gung-ho on marriage and starting a family? At least, that was the plan with Zoe. Since he clearly knows where Paris stands, why is he sniffing around her? Wait. Don't answer that.

Yesterday, it was nice of his new friend to remind him that there are millions of beautiful, eligible women in L.A. Haven't we been telling Carter, Thomas, et. al. that all along?

You mean it's going to take an elementary school kid to once again figure things out? Taylor needs to jump on Sheila's ramblings about Brooke before her grandson beats her to the punch!

I just don’t get what they’re doing with Carter. They struck chemistry gold in the Quarter pairing, they were the hottest thing this show had had in years. Good boy/bad girl, forbidden romance, it was smoking hot, only partially because both actors are smoking hot.  Once that fizzled, they seemed to be working towards a Carter/Katie pairing. That had potential, although I can’t say much, because Katie cancelled lunch to video chat Will, & that was the last we heard of that. This Paris thing is just ridiculous. First of all, he was engaged to her sister (I know, tame for this show). But, Paris is the one who outed the Quarter pairing, at the Queric vow renewal, no less. She’s been happy with Zende for the better part of a year, now. I totally get a sibling vibe from Paris/Carter, nothing romantic. It’s also asinine that Carter isn’t fighting off women. This is Bizarro World: Liam has 2 women fighting over him for a decade, he even had them both pregnant at the same time, & smoking hot lawyer/COO Carter can’t get & keep a woman? Bizarre.

Can this shit please be over.  Douglas by blowing the whistle Hope and Liam it was Deacon kissing Brooke. Ridge finds our and storms out to Taylor’s arms. Brooke finally wipes that dingleberry from her ass and takes up with a real man, Deacon. Hope’s happy, Deacon’s happy, Brooke’s happy, but most of all I’m happy. Move it along!  

Very very sneaky Carter luring Paris to your apartment under the guise of her portfolio. Maybe it wasn’t a guise at all. What Paris a few dollar jump was overly unexpected?  Wasn’t it just a short while ago she couldn’t afford her own apartment until Lurch came along. Does Paris have an unusually poor sense of smell because she couldn’t smell the essence of Quinn on the couch she was sitting on. Paris Paris Paris where you raised in a barn?  Don’t you know how impolite it is to put your dirty shoes on someone else’s couch even though it has  love ick stains.

And about Brooke, she of the selective morality and the less-selective, wandering pelvis?  Come on.  Hope should have been up at the big house before Douglas even finished his sentence.

This is absolutely dumb dumb dumb. Taylor stayed away because of Brooke and what she and Ridge could of had?  I guess when she came home to shoot Bill it was out of frustration of not being with Ridge. In addition, Taylor was home long enough to buy a baby for Stuffy.  It wasn’t that long ago Taylor left LA once again. Was it that Brooke’s fault or was it that she found out the baby she bought was Hope’s. 

I have to give Hope kudos for not condemning her mother and father kissing and could understand their deep connection.  But she’s still disappointed that her mom drank in the first place. Did I hear correctly that Brooke gave Ridge some of the blame for not being home?

There wasn’t any indication he got his toy. His toy was in one of the bedrooms upstairs. If he actually snuck into the house he would of seen who was actually kissing grandma. In any case, some sort of minor punishment could have been given to him or at lease a little stronger admonishment.

How does Carter go from Quinn, a woman with a capital “W” who, while replete with issues, is exciting, passionate and fiery, to Paris who looks and sounds like an inexperienced little girl?  An immature naif who is the exact opposite of energetic and passionate.  She is literally a walking sleeping pill.  Carter had some heat when he was with Quinn but now he’s back to his somnambulant self.  Quiet, dull and uninteresting.  I have to believe putting these two together puts much of the audience to sleep.  If I were LSV, I’d be pissed.

I've spent the time I dedicated to B&B watching an anime called Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, from which the kiddos these days produce a shit ton of memes, and thankfully there is one format to accurately sum up the "plot" currently:

62c5w9.jpg.80e39d532a5f6d33805de47455befb13.jpg

Because *seriously.* I take back every time I said on the now defunct TWoP boards that Brooke Logan was Bell's fave pet because even during the peak of sacrifices at the Alter of Bridge, Brooke never got to completely run ramshot without at least one person putting her in check. And often that included Bridget and even her biggest cheerleader Nick too.

As mentioned earlier, it won't matter to Steffy that Sheila was involved and even when it comes out, it'll be handwaved as "Brooke should've known better anyway." I don't even know what the point of dragging Sheila down into the Brooke bashing gutter benefits this story when neither needed her assistance in wrongfully blaming her for every bad thing in the universe. Nor does it explain them wanting Sheila in their lives at all for that matter.

That said, I do agree with those who say Brooke's post-drinking attitude and blaming Ridge for not being there is some bullshit. God knows Ridge has pulled some rank stunts under the influence but I cannot physically blame Ridge for bad weather and it can't be the first time he's been called away for business during a holiday. This is only the 2nd time since TK took over that I've been solidly in Ridge's corner on anything, I promise not to make it a habit :p

Speaking of that, now that I see full episodes coming up on YouTube, I have to say I see no chemistry between the two of them as a couple and I am baffled by the decision to do so. I'm not necessarily against May/December pairings but that one left me cold, and that's even before getting into the messiness about their pasts with Ridge and Beth.
