The Bold & the Beautiful: Outsourcing Romantic Gestures

I couldn't just let this one go without saying anything.

Y'all.

First of all, that's Ridge's grand romantic gesture to convince Brooke to call off her engagement and come back to him. A heart drawn in the sand with their names in it. That's it. That's the whole thing.

Second of all, the best part of it? HE HIRED OTHER PEOPLE TO DO IT. He didn't even do it himself! It's just a sand drawing! And he didn't do it! But he "would," he insisted. Well. Then there you go! What else do you need to know?

Third of all, I was dying when he was trying to tell her it wasn't about the two of them but about their family, about the child they share together. As if he has no other children with any other women. And as if she doesn't have about 14 children with other men. (I don't even know, when I try to look back on it I guess there aren't really fourteen, but you know. More than one. With at least three other men?)

But then we got to the best line of all.

Ridge: How happy do you think RJ would be if he saw his family back together, his parents back together? How happy would everybody else be if they didn't have to explain to Will that his stepmother is also his aunt?

Ridge, my friend, you make an excellent point. HOWEVER. They had to explain to Rick and Bridget that their stepfather was also their brother. They had to explain to Hope that she was her brother-in-law's daughter. And to Logan that he's his mother's ex-husbands stepfather's child, and to Jack that he's his uncle's... no, nevermind, I've lost my place completely, because who the hell can keep up?

Oh, B&B. You just never ease up on the cheese. I guess now we'll never see the ICE SCULPTURE OF A STALLION that Bill hired someone to make Brooke. 

Heartbreaker.

(In other news: Afternoon Television Program, when I have been railing for months that we need "more Avants!!!" this nonsense was not what I meant. Zzzzz.) (Zzzzz is for Zende, it works on many levels.)

My dream is that the show pairs Sasha & Bill. She has daddy issues, and he needs to get over Brooke so why not date a hot, younger woman half his age. He can feature her in all the many Spencer Publications and Eye on Fashion. Perhaps introduce her to other designers. Use his 12 1/2% to force the Forresters to make Sasha the face of the intimates line. It would certainly get Zende's goat and pair two people who have not slept with each other yet.

Oooo, I could get behind that idea!

And thanks for your comment, sometimes I wonder if I'm just screaming my B&B posts into the void :)

Oh, Louise, so happy that you are still watching. :)

I haven't watched since Ridge interrupted the Brill wedding, but does the end of your post mean that Brooke was won over by the heart in the sand?

Just how utterly romantic is it for the potential groom to be listing all the the OTHER people that the marriage would make happy? Rather than, let's see, why it would make the BRIDE happy?

Though I would have LOVED to see the stallion ice sculpture.
