B&B's Bradley Bell Dishes On The Woman In Charge At Forrester Creations & The Future Of Bridge!

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!

I’m sick of brooke going back to ridge
Why can’t see and Bill ever just get married
And she moves forward. They make more sense as a couple to me. I don’t even watch the show very often but I’ve been rooting for Bil and Brooke for years

I have tried very hard to like B&B. It is the ONE show that makes an effort to stick to its roots. The sets are always attractive and the actors (overall) are good looking. Plus, it has a strong connection to Bill Bell, my favorite soap writer. That being said, I just don’t like the current show and struggle to watch it (frequently failing and simply turning it off). The funny thing to me is that a lot of the reason why I don’t like it is the exact opposite of my criticism of the other shows. B&B sticks with… Read more »

I completely agree with you. I thought things were going to change when Maya’s parents were introduced. We had a brief respite, and then it was back to square one all over again. Whenever they bring in new or past charaters, its for 5 minutes and then their gone. Donna was prine example. Two shows for Brooke’s weddig and she was gone. It’s ridiculous.

As I have mentioned in previous posts, I think the story of Brooke and Ridge has sailed when Ronn Moss left the show. Although I always thought that Thorsten Kaye is a decent actor, I always thought he was to scruffy looking for Ridge. In my mind and eyes, Ronn Moss and Katherine Kelly Lang will always be ” Bridge “. Maybe it is becuse they never had a chance for romance before now, but I can’t see history repeating itself with Brooke and Ridge. Right now I am more disgusted than usual with Brooke. After all the crap she… Read more »

this needs to end , brooke has zero chemistry with this ridge. they needs to read stephanie’s will and move on .ridge needs to go back to europe or jail and take little stephanie and wyatt with him.Brooke should be running Forrester Creations.

After 30 years, Brooke deserves and should be with the man who will treat her right, Bill!!

I’m also sick of brooke running back to ridge again after all the times that he dump her for someone else. The show make the brooke character look like a stupid woman. Enough already. I stop watching the show two months ago because of the foolishness.

He lost me when he said “Kardashian”.

I like Eric and Quinn together.

What will happen to Bill?

They need to bring Donna back. Thorne and Felicia as well.

I’m over Zende. Send him back to Florida to spend time with his parents for a while.

What I can no longer watch is wyatt the weasel. I have to change the channel when he airs. Its ridiculous the whinning and the lack of recognition of his mental illness. It was never sane to always go after the girl involved with his brother & constantly opt for a quickie wedding the minute Liam is not around. If he believed in a relationship that quickie wedding nonsense would never have been necessary. That everyone stands by him is even further from sanity

As I previously stated as well, this ship has sailed. There is NO chemistry between these two. Loved Ridge and Caroline and it was a really bad move to end that story for no reason. Brad Bell needs to take a page from General Hospital and how they have made Laura a fresh character with a new romance. Time moves on and Luke and Laura didn’t work any more than Ridge and Brooke.

Really liking Quinn with Eric. But Soo sick of Steffy/Liam/Wyatt! And Please can they find a man for Brooke she hasn’t already slept with or been married to 100x’s? Brooke/Bill/Ridge is So old!

Another show should pick up Zack Conroy as B&B let the character of Oliver evaporate. I’d like to see Oliver return on B&B, married to a recast Hope.

I said it before and I’ll say it again. “Bridge” died when Roon Moss left the show. Tovme, Br8okecand Ridge will always be Ronn Moss and Katherine Kelly Lang. I agree with you Shari. There was no reason to break up Caroline and Ridge. They were so good together. Why listen to the fans

I don’t mind Bridge — simply because they are like the Victor and Nikki of B&B– I expect them to get thrown back together now and then– but since the present actor playing Ridge had very little air time with character Brooke– let alone any air time where any type of feelings for Brooke were shown– this pairing seems a bit force– if the rekindling of the romance came organically out of some kind of real story– I might enjoy it, but as it is — it feels like another wrinkle with Brooke going back to Bill by Feb. sweeps–… Read more »

As I have stated on this site before, I am a new watcher of B&B. I loved it after the first week and can’t wait to watch. There is something about Rena Rofer (Quinn) that is…ELECTRIC. She and Eric are the most exciting couple on the show. I hate how fickle Brooke is being, going from Bill to Ridge, with each man making their case of why she should pick one or the other. I am not a fan of Ridge and Brooke, and prefer with Bill. I want to see Rick and Maya have decent storyline. I am ready… Read more »

Brooke need to mature and stop being the b&b she dog .Caroline baby should turn out to be Ridge’s and ( she dog number two ) Sharsha need to stay with Thomas.Wyatt met a new woman and Eric find a woman his own age. Gwen will go back to old ways and Brooke and Kattie will rescue him.

I don’t care what anybody says up here, I’m a total Bridge fan, and their scenes have been very sweet. I am so happy they are together and that they STAY that way. I don’t get why anyone would root for Bill and Brooke, their name together even sounds gross. Brill? Please. Brooke hurts her sister every time she’s with Bill and she’s hurting herself. Putting them together is a terrible message, saying that cheating on your wife or with your sister’s husband leads to a lifetime of happiness? Bulls#%t!!!. B&B is hanging on a thread as it is, focusing… Read more »

Loving Eric and Quinn! Only reason I watch now. They’re great together! Hope they become a stable happy couple leading the family from now on! Love new Ridge but tired of him and Brooke. She missed the boat when she walked out on Bill!

I have not been able to watch the show in almost 2 years. The repeated storylines in the forced couples are just ridiculous. The only hope I have and the only reason I keep reading the boards is at one point they will re-examine the most exciting couple they ever had on the show. – Bill and Steffy. The chemistry between the two of them was off the charts. Interesting how they have a brief five-minute seen it mostly other day and the boards were lit up like they haven’t been in ages. Suddenly their articles and people devouring a… Read more »

Hate, the once again, triangle of Quinn, Eric, and Katie !!! Please, let Quinn’s abuse story play out. Give her a close friend , who she can trust, in Katie. Let Quinn’s backstory come to fruition. So tired of the triangle and who’s your daddy story lines. Give our characters some depth !! Give us something new to watch. I can walk away for weeks and they still have the same 2 story lines with different characters. BORING !!!
