Quote BrianRose: Even though I am shaky about Liam’s ability to continue to make Hope happy or stay true to her, I am just pleased to see Hope happy for a little while; after everything she has been put through, she deserves some happiness. Liam and Hope are very happy and very much in love, and all the buttinskies should just leave them alone and get a life.
Steffy has tried to usurp Hope’s life for no plausible explanation other than pure, spiteful jealousy. She has the audacity to have justified what she did, and now thinks everyone should join her in a pity party. All actions have consequences, and hopefully, the next man she attempts to seduce will be unattached.
And as for all the effort Steffy, Bill, Stephanie, Ridge and all the other intruders have put into dissecting and critiquing Hope, well they need to seriously channel their efforts toward that person staring back at them in the mirror. It would be a lot more profitable for them.
With everything Steffy threw at Oliver, Owen, Bill and Liam, she should know that her unsavory methods of trying to win a man’s affections are seriously flawed. While in Italy, instead of reflecting on and romanticizing about her past escapades with Liam, she should be reflecting on how she ended up with Liam to begin with, and also how she tried to seduce Oliver and Owen, and Bill, and how well that all worked out for her.
Great post, BrianRose!! Steffy thinks too highly of herself to ever consider that she may have done anything wrong in any instance. She admitted to manipulating the marriage, but held out on the annulment papers until Hope ran into her(and it's a shame more harm wasn't done to her, but at least we didn't have to watch Steffy get all the attention she so desperately needs and wants). She's really good at faking taking responsibility, while still thinking she shouldn't have to pay the consequences for her actions. And that whole "marriage" was a farce to begin with !!
I'm just glad Hope is above all of those things. She doesn't use sex to get men, and she doesn't act desperate. You gotta be proud of her for that!!
