    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don’t put Ridge and Brooke together!! That ship has sailed and they have NO chemistry.
    Huge mistake to suddenly stop the best love story they had with Ridge and Caroline.

    I completely agree. I think Ronn Moss and Katherine Kelly Lang had a wonderful chemistry that nobody can replace. I can’t see that happening now. Like you said that ship has sailed. I can see them remaining friends for the sake of their son, but I don’t see any kind of connection when they have their scenes together. As strange as this may sound, I never cared for him as Ridge, but I loved the whole story involving Caroline, and I was so upset when they broke up. I cried during the episode of the break up. Just don’t let it mean a Brooke and Ridge come back

    Ronn and Katherine are the ONLY Ridge and Brooke. No offense to Thorsten Kaye and his new Ridge.

    I hope so. This would finaly be a good storyline but indont trust B&B to tell it. Do we even see Mya anymore?

    RichInIowa replied

    If that’s the case, he’ll last about six weeks on the show.

    Definitely would have been believable if Moss was still in the role. His scarves were just a little too precious.

    We rarely see Maya now, such a shame, so much more story to tell with a trans character, instead we get constant repetitive Liam Spencer love triangles.

    Ronn Moss was Ridge Forrester he was that character for 25 years . Thorsten Kaye is not Ridge Brad Bell was having a childish moment should have left the character off the canvas maybe worked the character of Thorne but this kid being brought on won’t help the ratings who will be in his group to offset him with? No offense but KKL has zero chemistry with TK he is not Ridge fold the tent admit you were wrong BB and send Ridge away

    The kid hates the stupid sword ring. Definitely a Forestier, already trying to control everyone like his step-sister. (She should have gotten Quinn’s ring… WOW!!!)

    Not liking this kid RJ but i understand wanting to keep parents together. However, like most fans, RM and KKL will be the only Ridge and Brooketo me. BRidge is no more. Make Bill and Brooke a power couple

    This boy might be a decent actor , however, I think the casting is wrong, there is no physical resemblance, he is too short, and seems babyish. I have noticed this type of casting on other tv shows like blue blood’s Nicki , the granddaughter.
