Bold and Beautiful Recaps
B&B Week of December 13, 2010
At Forrester Creations, everyone prepared for Thomas's Taboo show. Ridge and Thomas headed backstage, where several male models were getting dressed. Ridge told his son that he's proud of him and Taylor gave Thomas a hug for good luck.... Rick and Thorne went over some last-minute arrangements with the crew.... Jarrett took photos of Thomas.... Thorne, Thomas and Brooke gathered the models and reminded them to move quickly. Meanwhile, Whip muttered to himself that things were about to get ugly. He watched Brooke and Thomas from across the room.
Aggie wrapped Christmas presents at Nick's place. Soon, he and Jack arrived home and the little boy asked if the presents were for him. Nick invited her to spend the holiday with them and she eagerly accepted. They kissed and Jack smiled in approval. Later, Nick tried to peek through the gifts, but Aggie playfully scolded him. They then went online to see if Jack could write a letter for Santa for Macy's (nice plug!).
A thrilled Donna told Marcus how happy she is to see him modeling Thomas's line. Justin joined them and Donna gushed about how their son is handsome — just like his father.... Ridge helped Brooke zip up as she dressed in her gown. He confided in her how Whip went off on him for messing in Whip and Taylor's marriage. Brooke promised that there would be no surprise kisses this time.... Whip and Taylor took their seats in the audience and Whip told her that he'd asked Ridge not to interfere in their marriage. The show then began, with Taylor looking nervous. The models emerged, wearing Thomas's classic-looking men's wear. Marcus indeed looked handsome in his tan coat. In the middle of the show, Whip got up to take a call from Aggie. She apologized for interrupting the show, but he was glad that she'd given him a reason to leave his seat. He planned to get back at Ridge, but Aggie didn't think it was a good idea. Later, Nick and Aggie snuggled by the fire and she shared that she was excited about Christmas again, thanks to him.
Whip went backstage, where Ridge was giving Thomas some last-minute advice about going out onstage. Thomas promised that there would be no scandals. Whip then grabbed a couple of the outfits when no one was looking and moved them.... Brooke went onstage and posed with a couple of the models. Jarrett went backstage to get some candids. Thomas changed backstage and couldn't find his costume, thanks to Whip; he began to search around the area. Brooke went to change and Thomas accidentally walked in on her while she was in her underwear. Jarrett found them both in a state of undress; Thomas demanded that he not take their picture and huddled close to Brooke to try to cover her up. Jarrett slinked away, but Whip managed to get a photo of them together. "Payback time," Whip said gleefully.
Brooke, Thomas and Ridge were thrilled with how well the Taboo fashion show went. Even Taylor was proud of her son. Thomas confessed to his parents that "things were insane" backstage and Ridge wondered what had happened. Brooke and Thomas evaded the question. After his parents stepped out, Thomas asked Brooke how they should handle their dressing room encounter. Meanwhile, Whip eyed the photo that he'd taken of a scantily-clad Thomas and Brooke. Aggie stopped by his place and questioned her cousin about his plans for revenge against Ridge. Whip asked what Aggie would do if she were making love to someone and he called out another person's name. Aggie correctly guessed that this is what Taylor did to Whip.
At Spencer Publications, Bill's assistant, Hillary, addressed Liam as "Mr. Spencer." Hope pointed out that it's not Liam's surname, but Liam said that Bill thought he should go by "Spencer." Liam promised that even with the change, he still loves Hope; they kissed. After, he showed Hope his company's Web site and was surprised to see that he was at the top of the "trending" list. An article also referred to him as an "eligible bachelor," which annoyed Hope. Liam argued that this was part of his image. Just then, Hillary returned with a fancy meal for the pair and Hope was impressed. Still, she didn't think that Bill would be pleased to find them together. Liam didn't care and assured Hope that he wants to be with her.... At the beach house, Amber started to seduce Oliver, but he turned her down and said that he wants to wait for Hope. An annoyed Amber gave up and decided to chase after Liam instead. Ollie mocked her, but she liked the sound of "Amber Moore Spencer."
Taylor returned home and embraced Whip. She was pleased that Brooke had been on her best behavior at the fashion show.... Brooke reminded Thomas that their meeting in the dressing room was totally innocent, but didn't think that Taylor would agree. They feared that Jarrett would say something. Brooke went online to see if he'd posted anything and was horrified when she found a photo of them wearing next to nothing while standing close together. Later, Liam and Hope saw the scandalous photo online. Hope was upset but Liam assured her that it probably wasn't what it looked like.... Brooke and Thomas wondered who took the photo. Ridge returned to the office and asked what they were looking at. Neither answered him, but Ridge demanded to see it. They reluctantly showed him and Ridge clenched his jaw with anger.... Whip thought about Ridge and chuckled as he eyed the picture.
Brooke and Thomas reluctantly showed Ridge the photo of them from the fashion show. He wondered why they were both undressed in it. They tried to explain the mix-up with their missing outfits. Thomas believed that Jarrett took the photo. Thorne stopped by the office and reported that so many orders were coming in that the site had shut down. He then spied the photo and said that they might want to shake the hand of the person who took it.
Meanwhile, at Spencer Publications, Hope asked Liam if the photo could've been faked. She suspected that Bill was behind it, but Liam defended his father. Hope was sick of the press going after her mother. She and Liam reminisced about how they'd first met. He again assured her that even with everything going on in his life, he'd still be there for Hope.... Amber wondered to Oliver how she could get an "in" with her latest conquest, Liam. Ollie reminded her that he doesn't want her to scheme on his behalf. "I don't have a scheme — yet," she argued. "I have an idea." Oliver urged her to get a job, but Amber replied that the only way to get money is to be born into it or to marry rich. Later, Amber encouraged Oliver to think positively about getting back together with Hope so that the idea would be out there in the universe.
Taylor returned from the fashion show and celebrated her son's success with Whip. Whip pretended that he wanted to make nice with Brooke and Ridge and suggested that she invite them over. Taylor was thrilled and called Ridge; he warned her not to go near a computer. Taylor feared that something was going on and eyed Whip's laptop. She went online and was horrified when she came across the photo. Whip pretended to be surprised by it. She left to deal with it and a resigned Whip took a seat on the couch. "I'll wait up," he said to himself. Soon, Aggie stopped by and accused Whip of posting the photo. Whip feigned innocence, but Aggie didn't buy it. She warned that Taylor would be furious when she learns the truth and didn't think that it was a good idea for him to go up against Ridge. Whip didn't care and wanted to show Taylor Ridge's true colors.
Taylor went to Forrester Creations and confronted Brooke. Ridge was determined to get to the bottom of things, but Taylor was certain that something scandalous had indeed happened backstage. She questioned Brooke about the photo and demanded that Ridge do something about it.
Taylor continued to rant against Thomas and Brooke about the racy photo. Brooke and Thomas tried to explain themselves, but Taylor wouldn't listen to them. Ridge agreed that it hadn't been appropriate for Thomas and Brooke to change in the same dressing room. Taylor asked for a moment alone with Ridge and begged him to pull Taboo. Meanwhile, Aggie kept asking Whip how he managed to take the picture. She warned that he was playing a dangerous game. However, Whip believed that Taylor was becoming disillusioned with Ridge and his idea to back the Taboo line. Ridge defended Brooke and suggested that Taylor just let things go. Taylor, of course, wouldn't do this. Brooke and Thomas went back into the office and Thomas pleaded with Ridge to keep the line going. Ridge agreed, but stressed that this was Thomas's last chance. Taylor practically broke down in tears and warned that Ridge would regret it. Later, Brooke apologized to Ridge for the scandal and asked if he could forgive her — again. He did and declared his love for her. Brooke promised that there would be no more scandals. "Nothing is ever going to come between us," Ridge stated. Famous last words.
Bill interrupted Liam and Hope's romantic dinner and announced that he's throwing a party to introduce Liam to the world as his son. Liam was nervous at the prospect, but Bill believed that having it would be good for the company — and their family. He stressed that Liam would be busy at the event and didn't think that Hope would have a good time. Hope understood that Bill didn't want her there, but Liam insisted that she attend. Hope agreed to be there.
Amber read up on the Spencers and was pleased to learn how rich they are. This made her want Liam even more. Oliver argued that money doesn't bring happiness, but Amber disagreed. "I want steak and I want lobster, and I want to be able to fly to Paris on a whim," she explained. Ollie didn't want to be rich if it meant being a "power-hungry control freak" like Bill. She complained that no one will hire her and she needed cash, adding that if she hooked up with Liam, Ollie would have a better chance with Hope. Oliver thought she should just give it up, but Amber was determined to be a part of a rich family again. She reminisced about her life as a Forrester.
Taylor and Thomas went home and "filled in" Whip on the photo. Whip pretended to be concerned. Thomas insisted that nothing would ever happen between him and Brooke. Whip looked slightly guilty at Thomas's pain. Later, Whip asked how Ridge had reacted to the photo and Taylor lamented that her ex blew the whole thing off. He pretended to be on Taylor's side and "agreed" that Ridge allowing Brooke and Thomas to work together was a bad idea. Taylor was grateful to have her husband's support. When he was alone, Whip thought about how Taylor had called out Ridge's name during sex. "I'm not done with you yet, Ridge," he said aloud.
Brooke asked Hope about Bill's party; Hope explained that it was Liam's "debut." Liam called and wondered if Hope would be there soon. Hope thought that she shouldn't attend since Bill didn't want her there, but Liam insisted. After, Hope lamented to her mom how Bill wants his son to be a single jetsetter. Brooke recalled how Stephanie had tried to keep her and Ridge apart, but added that it hadn't worked because she didn't let Steph call the shots. "Nothing and no one will ruin this evening for you," Brooke assured her.
At the beach house, Amber went online and eyed the photo of Thomas and Brooke. She then asked Oliver if he could help her get an invite to the Spencers' party. Later, Marcus stopped by and revealed that he knows about Amber and Ollie's living arrangement, but promised to keep it secret. Amber asked Marcus if he could snag her an invite to the bash. He agreed to see if Justin could put her name on the list.
At Bill's office, he, Liam and Katie got ready for the event. When Liam mentioned Hope, Bill became annoyed and wished that his son hadn't invited her. He reminded Liam that the focus is supposed to be on their family, but Liam wanted to share his special night with his girlfriend.
Donna and Justin ran into each other at Insomnia and sat down for a drink. They discussed how proud they were of Marcus. Justin asked if Donna would be his date at the Spencer bash. She blushed and accepted the invite.
As the party began, Liam became nervous. "Spencers don't get nervous; we get pumped," Bill told him. Sports announcer Michael Buffer arrived and Liam freaked out to see someone so famous there. Bill then handed Liam a bio he'd written and Liam noted that there was no mention of Hope in it. Hope arrived and Liam ran to greet her. "Please kill me," Bill sighed to Katie.... Marcus was surprised to see Justin and Donna enter together.... Amber showed up and easily got into the event. She took a seat toward the back of the room and watched Liam from a distance.... Katie privately told Liam that Bill isn't just throwing the party as a marketing campaign, but wanted to celebrate having a son. After, Liam promised Hope that once he made his speech, he'd be all hers. Liam later headed backstage and quietly said good-bye to being Liam Cooper. Bill took the stage and promised the crowd an extravaganza, "Dollar Bill style." He then relayed how he'd learned about his son and prepared to officially introduce Liam. "I'm extremely proud of this young man," he stated. "He will impact men and more importantly, women, all over the world." Hope cringed as Bill said this. Bill went on about how Liam is going to be the future of Spencer Publications and credited Liam for making him a better man.
