What with the later-afternoon shows being pre-empted for white papal smoke and the like, I decided to spend my evening catching up on the week's B&B episodes so far. I think I might not have even fast-forwarded anything! (If I'm not mistaken, Liam hasn't even shown up once this week.)
The primary stories right now seem mostly to be about the various Forrester Creations dramas, the new cohabitation status of Taylor and Eric, Caroline's new obsession with sushi and her freshly-minted Manhattan Princess attitude (seriously, no one who lives here without being a billionaire is afraid to get a Iittle dirty -- the sidewalks alone on a rainy day mean you find a system for dealing with mess in expensive shoes, and that's to say nothing of the rats, and let's not pretend any New Yorker isn't quite accustomed to regular interactions with homeless people... but okay, show! we'll take your word for all this!), and the budding romance between Maya and Rick.
Maya and Rick, who I'm pretty sure made out in broad daylight on a median strip. Which, really, if you have a serious girlfriend and you're also an allegedy fairly high-profile public figure... it just doesn't seem wise.
But no matter! Rick and Maya played "rich girl tries on fashions" at the FC boutique and Rick was quite smitten.
And really, who can blame him?
Super-pretty. And she wasn't the least bit suspicious when Rick seemed to know precisely the right poses she should make to properly display a garment.
Anyway, Rick finally 'fessed up that he's really Rick Forrester, president of Forrester Creations, and Maya promptly fled back toward the median strip. Most young women recently out of jail who are pursuing acting careers generally run away as fast as they can when they find out their new suitor is a multi-millionaire, right? Makes perfect sense! Wealth? What a turnoff!
