There is a major shake-up at Forrester Creations that is about to go down on the upcoming December 14th episode of The Bold and the Beautiful.
That is when none other than Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) will become the woman in charge and CEO of the fashion house! How does it come about? After Quinn (Rena Sofer) proposes that Steffy be the new CEO, Steffy accepts the offer. But isn’t there an ulterior motive by Quinn to put the beautiful Steffy in charge? Is she hoping that Steffy’s rise to power will bring her son Wyatt (Darin Brooks) closer to her, and negate the Liam/Steffy romance once and for all?
TV Insider’s Michael Logan spoke with B&B’s executive producer and head writer, Bradley Bell, for the inside scoop on the storyline and the latest on the rekindling of Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) long-storied romance and where that may lead. Here’s a few intriguing excerpts below!
With Steffy loathing Quinn, why would Steffy take the offer as CEO of Forrester? Bell offered up,“Steffy is very moved by the honor. Her grandfather Eric (John McCook) wants this to happen from the bottom of his heart and sees this as a true passing of the baton. Besides, it’s time for a woman to run things. And it’s a provocative opportunity. Wyatt has the promotional savvy to make Steffy a household name with millions of online followers. She’ll become an ‘influencer,’ as they say nowadays. She’s going to be our show’s Kardashian, and it’s because of Wyatt. They are going to do great things together.”
As to how Liam (Scott Clifton) sees Steffy being offered the CEO position, Bell explained: “He’s sure that Quinn’s offer is total manipulation, and it’s going to create quite a rift between him and Steffy. Is it something they can negotiate and endure? We’ll have to see.”
Ridge will be involved in the Forrester business drama, but what will it mean for the reuniting of Bridge? After all, they are set to hit the sheets on the December 5th episode and become engaged. Brad answered: “They are finally headed for the finish line. But will they cross it? Ridge will be so consumed with what’s happening at Forrester that it may get in the way of those wedding plans. And we haven’t heard the last from Bill Spencer (Don Diamont). He’s a man who gets what he wants and he’s not giving up on Brooke.
So, what do you think of Quinn putting Steffy in charge of Forrester Creations, and Steffy accepting the offer? Will you be rooting for Brooke and Ridge to get back together after next week’s episode? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
