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 its past WAY too much. There is no effort to bring NEW characters, to put the established characters into a NEW situation with new characters. It is the same thing all the time.

For example, this article talks about the “rekindling of Brooke and Ridge” — Rekindled?? These two have been “rekindled” so many times in the past 25 years that there is only charred debris left. What exactly is there to “rekindle” about them?

This show needs something — and it does NOT need to be another Forrester or Logan offspring. Where is an new, age appropriate romantic partner for Eric? There are a TON of unemployed actresses who look great and easily could fit the part. What about a new fashion related family to the scene —- Elizabeth Hubbard or Robin Strasser playing a handbag or shoe designer with her good looking offspring in tow? (But, for the love of God, do NOT put the male offspring into bed with Brooke!).

I thought there might be an opportunity for the show to finally let in some “fresh air” when Ross Moss and Susan Flannery quit. The show would have to take another direction or refocus. (In vain, I hoped that the writers would leave Ridge off screen and finally focus on the criminally ignored Thorne or Felicia Forrester). We didn’t get that. Instead, we got more and more of the same. Ugh.

I’m beginning to think that Brad Bell is burned out (from yet again “rekindling” Brooke and Ridge) or just doesn’t have the writing talent his father exhibited.

It has been a mystery to me that, over the past decade, Y&R has remain the most watched soap. It is an equal mystery to me how B&B holds onto the second spot.

Thanks for posting the article but NOTHING about it is enticing me to give B&B another shot.

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 put Katie through not once but twice, she is going to pull a stunt like this. I actually liked her with Bill. I just hope they don’t have Katie and Bill regroup. I say let Katie find herself for awhile without a man. I am really loving Eric and Quinn, I just hope we aren’t in for a Katie, Quinn, Eric triangle any time soon. Now don’t even getvme started on Liam and Steffie. Steffie finally got divorced. Why are they taking forever to marry. Insread of talking about it every 5 minutes why don’t they just go to a Justice of the Peace and do the deed. And if Steffie takes that job offer from Quinn, I say she is one hypocritical witch. She was so afraid of Quinn when she was married to Wyatt, but now tha she is divorced and promoted she isn’t afraid anymore. Like I said before she never really loved Wyatt. She was using him because she thought Liam was gome. And then she was using Quinn to divorce Wyatt and go back to Liam. She is nothing but a spoiled whiner who wants her way or no way. Like father like daughter. It’s going to be interesting to see how things are going to play out. I just wonder if Quinn is going to stay a good witch, or go back to being a bad one. Time will tell.

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

Shari

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.

Seriously, there is ZERO chemistry between KKL and TK, BRIDGE is over.

Its painful to watch.

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

Mary SF

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– YAWN

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 for more Caroline and Thomas, more Ivy. I only storyline I have not loved is Zende making the same mistake TWICE, sleeping with Nicole’s sister. I am also enjoying the young actor playing Ridge and Brooke’s son. Great job, Brad Bell.

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 on that evil wench Quinn, and Eric wrapped around her you know what. He’s an idiot for not seeing who she is. I miss Donna, how could she come to town and not speak to Katie, or her Nephew Rick, or Eric? This show for a half hour could do way better than it’s doing and I’d rather see Brooke with Ridge, a new man, or just become the Queen period, but Bill is NOT the answer.

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 brief moment with a shirtless bill and a sexy Steffy. I remember watching soaps when the love scenes were truly steamy. This pairing has the potential to almost need a rating. One can only hope Bell has enough sense to write for them once again. Their story was one of the best written on BB. With Bill walking away so not to hurt the true love of his life more. She is the only woman on the show he has ever truly loved. It’s why he walked away but why he couldn’t let her go. It’s why she can find no satisfaction in the sons because what she seeks has always been the father. If he is the Alpha and she is the Omega

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 !!!

Jussie Smollett Cut From Rest Of Season Of EMPIRE; Tells Cast He’s Innocent Of Charges

Following the turn of events for Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) where he was arrested and charged on multiple felony counts and then posted bail, the producers of Fox’s sudsy primetime drama have decided to pull him from the remaining two episodes of the season.

“The events of the past few weeks have been incredibly emotional for all of us,” executive producers Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, Brett Mahoney, Brian Grazer, Sanaa Hamri, Francie Calfo, and Dennis Hammer said in a statement this morning following the legal fallout for Jussie Smollett and his arrest stemming from an alleged hate crime reported on January 29th that he staged on himself.

The producers went on to say: “Jussie has been an important member of our Empire family for the past five years and we care about him deeply. While these allegations are very disturbing, we are placing our trust in the legal system as the process plays out. We are also aware of the effects of this process on the cast and crew members who work on our show and to avoid further disruption on set, we have decided to remove the role of ‘Jamal’ from the final two episodes of the season.”

This happened even after Smollett returned to work on Thursday, and even after the actor/singer reportedly apologized to the cast and crew of Empire for any embarrassment the recent allegations may have caused, but at the same time, sources reported, that he maintained that he was innocent,

According to CNN: “The person at the meeting said they were shocked and dismayed that Smollett stuck to his story of innocence. For the most part, the source said, Smollett paraphrased what was in the statement that his attorney put out that afternoon, blaming the legal system and the media for his woes.”

So, what do you think of the Empire producers decision to cut Smollett from the last two shows of the season? What do you think of Jussie still maintaining his innocence to the cast? Comment below.

‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Turns Himself In After Being Charged With Allegedly Filing False Police Report & Facing Criminal Charges

In major developments in the last several hours, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) turned himself in to Chicago police early Thursday morning, just hours after he was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself late in January on the streets in Chicago.

In a press conference currently being conducted by the CPD supervisor, Eddie Johnson and Commander Edward Wodnick, they revealed that Smollett turned himself in quietly and without issue.   In addition, the Chicago PD are outlining the events and timeline that led to Smollett’s arrest.

Smollett turned himself in at the Central District police station in Chicago at 5 a.m., police reported.  Thursday morning, Smollett was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing Thursday at 1:30pm central time on a felony charge of a class 4 disorderly conduct, and with that charge Smollett could face up to 1.5 years in prison.

Jussie’s attorney’s released the following statement on Wednesday night after Smollett was charged by the Chicago PD: “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Smollett reported that he has been attacked as he was walking home around.  He claimed two masked men shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a chemical on to him.

Enter two brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo, who Smollett knew, who were arrested last week, but later released as suspects. The two brothers told police they helped stage the attack with Smollett.  They were paid $3,500 to orchestrate the attack by Smollett.  In their press conference, the Chicago PD revealed that they have the check as evidence were Smollett paid the brothers that sum.

The brothers left for Nigeria hours after the attack, and were arrested days later when they returned to Chicago.   On Wednesday, they testified to a grand jury. Smollett was later charged with disorderly conduct.
