Daisy’s Bold and Beautiful May Chat

By Daisy

Eighties B&B is old, but new to some of us, and new to me. I kind of missed the 80s in general as I was on a farm back then, so all those taffeta ruffles and flouncy hairdos are unknown.
It’s good to see B&B 80s if for no other reason than to tell us, “Never bring back 80s fashion”. But it does go well with the Mills and Boon drama being served this week.
We know not to expect a Forrester wedding to go smoothly, and yet Brooke and Eric managed to join in unholy matrimony. Old Stephanie watched on as the young caterer married her husband. Ridge, the young horsey Ridge, hovered as his dad took what I presume to be Ridge’s ex.Then we had the double wedding, double in the sense that Ridge had two wives.
Producers let loose with the fantasy, with Taylor, aka Layla, in the clutches of a rich sultan. Her memory is returning as she has romantic flashbacks of her love-ins with Ridge.
Meanwhile, holy moley, young Brooke comes riding down the cliffs, in taffeta frills, folds and flounces to marry, the already married Ridge. Will the sultan call on his olden days phone to inform him his wife is alive? When will Layla get her lips done?



    • Like young plums, waiting to become mature prunes. I didn’t know Bill was in it back then.

        • Yeah, I noticed him mauling the models with his paws.

          You think they would get sick of weddings.

  1. Today was, I think, one of Ridge’s marriage ceremonies to Taylor.

    Brooke, at the end of the wedding, monologues about how she’s a strong, powerful, independant woman who will forge her own path in life.
    Brooke, after the wedding, will spend the rest of her life chasing, marrying and divorcing the same three or four people.

    • It was gruelling viewing. That was Eric hooked up with Marie Osmond today. No mullet on Ridge today, he just looked like a stunned mullet during the dragged out ceremony.

  2. Eric and Stephanie get hitched today. Ridge’s mullet is back. Some toyboy called Lorenzo gets dumped. Stefano di Mera from DOOL is here. too.

  3. Bill and Katie get married today. The vows and speeches are nauseating. Eric and Stephanie laugh at Bill’s el cheapo wedding in a public park in Katie’s dump of a neighbourhood while they eat caviar.

    Weddings forever, hang in there

    • I think we’ve had our fill of weddings. It could be worse. It could be Thanksgiving dinners and Christmases.

      I think we may need to hang up our B&B hat until America makes it through the pandemic. At least Dr Phil is keeping us posted from the safety of his palace.

  4. Today’s wedding episode is (original) Hope and Liam’s wedding in Italy.

    The episode ends with Steffy slipping on a wet tile and taking a huge fall down into the Adriatic Sea. What is it with these Forrester children that it’s impossible to kill them from large heights?

  5. Ridge and Brooke get married …..again.Destiny rears it’s ugly heads again. Ridge’s voice is uber hoarse for his insincere vows. Carter is the over worked celebrant. Steffy’s crying for the joyous occasion. Simpering quotations and speeches fly. Maya , Rick, RJ, Coco, the gang’s all here.

    Liam and Wyatt drink beer ….. from empty bottles. Cheapo.

    • I forgot about Coco.
      And who’s the girl Thomas killed?

      Oh and Maya had that wooden sister.

  6. Back a few years to a FC fashion show going badly off the rails. I got a few laughs out of it. Ridge, Brooke and Stephanie end up in a threesome. You gottta see it.

  7. It was a weird flash-back, today. Brooke is the CEO of Forrester Creations (how many Forrester men did she have to marry to get to that position?) and launching her new intimates line. “Brooke’s Bedroom”. Eugh. The thing is, if you watch it, it’s just a bunch of young girls (the kind that has Eric reaching for the defibrillator, a bottle of Viagra, or both) parading around in frilly night-gowns and stilettos. When the reporters ask, “How is this different from any other line of lingerie?”, Brooke’s answer — “It’s a completely redefinition of sensual satisfaction” or some such nonsense — is pure marketing shlock, it’s meaningless buzz words and empty marketing phrases that any real reporter would’ve torn to shreds.

    How is this family so wealthy, again?

  8. It was another flashback to a strange time in the past, tonight.

    Eric’s married to Donna, Ridge is married to Brooke, and the Forresters were putting on a fashion show with the three Logan sisters as the models. Meanwhile, Brooke’s daughter and Stephanie were connected to a rival company to the Forresters, while Bill had bribed the judges of the fashion show to de-value the Forrester line so that he could swoop in and buy them.

    I think?

    • I watched a bit. It was funny to see Bill’s déjà vu. He later did the same thing in Monte Carlo It was weird seeing Eric smooch Donna. I missed out on the Deric years.

      • “I missed out on the Deric years.”

        I don’t think we missed out on much.

        Gosh, can Eric date somebody who’s not young enough to be his grand-daughter?

  9. Maaaaaaan. I went shopping at the Farmers’ Mart, then Woolies. Couples shopping together, people walking close to you left, right and centre. They’re deciding on my behalf that SD is unnecessary.
    I am wearing gloves and face mask just to remind people there’s a pandemic; stay back.

  10. Oooo. Old horsie Ridge looks like he’s morphing into the new older hobo Rasper Ridge. The 8.00 shadow does not suit him.

    This is the first in the cycle of love triangles between Hope, Steffy and Liam. I suppose you could make a name amalgamation; HoLiSt. LiStHo. SteLiHo.

    • It’s always a good time watching Brooke lecturing somebody on respecting the sanctity of a relationship. Although I loved Taylor just rolling her eyes and going, “Yeah, sure, okay.”

  11. World leaders in haute couture the Forresters, throw another shambles of a fashion show. Stuffy old Mr Avant takes a dim view of his transitioning son Maya stealing the show in a fabulous show stopper..History on the catwalk.

  12. Surely today’s episode was a repeat?
    I am sure they could not be dragging these story lines over this long a time frame?
    No, seriously. Asking for a friend.

    • Bobi, these are repeats because of covid. Production stopped.These are “the best” of B&B Expect lots of marriages,annulments, affairs, feuds, murders, people in hospital with amnesia etc etc

      • I must say, that change of sex storyline was a fun one. I hope to find out how it was all resolved. Assuming there was a conclusion?
        Notice how I carefully avoided any particular innuendos there. How life has changed. There was a time when I would have happily launched into a number of inappropriate jokes. Not complaining. Just saying.

  13. B&B has just been renewed for another two years. I had to break the wonderful news (No one must know about this)

    • I look forward to the Forresters, Spencers and Logans attempting social distancing. That will indeed be original storylines.

      • I wonder what would’ve happened if the show hadn’t been renewed? They would’ve been forced to actually conclude all the ongoing storylines. Ridge and Brooke get back together, Wyatt and Flo (or Sally, who knows with him) reunite, I guess, Hope and Liam end up together forever or something? I suppose they would’ve had to put Bill and Katie back together as well.

  14. I caught the last few minutes of today’s episode, and apparently, the crux of the episode was Ridge being annoyed at Brooke’s son Rick dating Ridge’s daughter Phoebe.

    At first, I was like, hang on, but I had to break it down a bit.

    Rick is Brooke’s son with Eric, which technically makes him Ridge’s step-brother. And dating Ridge’s daughter means that Phoebe is dating her own uncle and step-sibling.

    The only thing stopping that from being super incestuous is that Ridge isn’t biologically-related to Eric, Ridge is actually biologically the son of some bloke Stephanie had an affair with, years and years ago.

    But it’s still incredibly creepy and weird.
