    Oops. (CBS)
    "B&B" Breakdown
    Week of May 6 - 10:


    It's been a stunning week or so on "B&B" what with Brooke turning up pregnant and now Steffy's baby appearing to be in jeopardy. Oh my!

    It was a mistake.
    Brooke's agony was evident this week, but it's pretty hard to feel for her on this one. Really? She - oops - just made a mistake by believing that Katie was giving Bill to her and was done with him? Who gives their sister their husband? So messed up! How could she honestly think Katie was over it when she was so upset? Just kind of ludicrous the justification she's giving Donna for how this happened. As for Donna, she's all over the place on this topic - one minute she's saying Brooke can't possibly keep this from Bill, and the next it's 'no one ever has to know'. Incidentally, it's hard to believe Brooke's been able to hang all over Eric at Forrester without Taylor appearing. Who else thinks she'll show up and 'sense' Brooke's pregnancy with her ultra-sensitive Brooke radar? As annoying as this stuff can be, it's Taylor's reaction to the pregnancy that would be 'must see' TV. Gotta' love this rivalry. It will be interesting to see if Brooke's plans surrounding the pregnancy will include Eric... What do you think Brooke should do? Let us know what you think by voting in Soaps.com's B&B Brooke’s Dilemma poll.

    Caroline and Carter.
    Caroline was a nice mix of her old and new self this week. That said, it's disconcerting watching her scheme and throw herself at Rick, when she's clearly realized he's more interested in Maya. Likewise, Carter keeps sniffing around Maya, when he too knows that he would only be a consolation prize if she can't have Rick. As for Caroline bringing in Uncle Bill, aka, the 'in-house psychic', I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.


    Swerve. (CBS)
    Making up is hard to do.
    Just when we'd reached the limit with hearing Hope refer to Liam as a possession she had ownership of for the umpteenth time, she decided to make nice. Though it was 'convenient' that Hope and Steffy had this close encounter before Steffy got in an accident, it was also a touchingly genuine moment between the girls.

    Best time of my life.
    Gah. It was pretty obvious with how ridiculously happy Liam and Steffy have been that something awful was going to happen...and now it has. As soon as she saw the motorcycle I knew - and did they ever draw out that ride - such tension! There's probably very little chance they won't lose that baby. It's a little disappointing for this to go such a predictable route. Worse, we're all thinking the same thing... It's happening so that the dreaded triangle can go another round. No!

    Here we go again. Come on PRODUCERS/WRITTERS of B&B.. I take it that Steffy is going to loose the baby. Think Im going to stop watching B&B. I am really getting tired of not seeing Taylor and her family on top for a chance. Brooke has slept her way to the top .....and more. Taylor and her fam can be on top for once and still maintain all the drama there is to soap operas.

    I am so sick of B&B's Drama with the Logan's. Brooke is too old as the character and reality to be pregnant. Lee Bell Phillips need to be more creative because this type of drama has been going on since the beginning. Maybe they should retire and get some new and young writers. If Steffy loses her baby, I and a lot of other fans will stop watching. Y&R are already number 1 daytime. The B&B will definitely lose their fan base. They will never compete with Y&R and is the reason Jill Faren Phelps is back with Y&R.

    Brooke and Bill are both disgusting -- he broke his vows and she broke the bonds of sisterhood. They deserve what they get.

    Hope and Steffy's moments together were nice, although Hope MUST stop talking about the life that was stolen from her. So melodramatic. She still has a life and she should go live it. She gave up Liam time and time again. Yes, Steffy was not completely innocent, but Hope needs to move on. It's done. And yet, if Steffy loses the baby because she was being reckless riding a motorcycle, Hope will spring to Liam's rescue. He might not go for it this time though because he and Steffy have been bonding nicely.

    I liked the more human, less cartoonish Caroline. I am wondering why Bill is on her side with Rick though. Bill doesn't like Rick so why isn't he trying to push Caroline toward the person he thinks she should be with like he did with Liam? He is, however, about to manipulate Maya with the guy who caused all the trouble in her life. You'd think he would learn one of these times. Guess not!

    Steffy is ok if you all say so. The soap will not survive on just taylor and steffy and thomas and bill but if you think so you watch I have done enough time with it. They need more people not less but ok by me. I agree Brooke is to old and should go have fun in the sun. She has the body for it. The stories are boring and where is the competion on the runway? Bring back Jackie and a new Ridge. Maybe the talk can use another thirty minutes.

    Recast Ridge, not Ronn Moss, he can work in shipping with Thorn for his boss.
    Tried of Hope, tired tired tired. Brooke what can you say? Watch out Liam! Bill, were is Lt Baker DUI done. Why did Hope forgive her Mom and not Oliver!
    Let Steffy be happy, I am sorry loser Liam is the one that does it. Hope is her mothers daughter. She just doesn't bed everyone yet.
    Eric take your meds!
    If Bill knocks you off a balcony he will do you a favor!
    No baby for Steffy will stop watching!

    I tried so hard not to say anything but I must put in my two cents. I just don't understand why in the world they keep putting Brooke in these situations. She has children by everyone. Taylor couldn't even have a baby without it being Brooke's. Give me a break! Please! The woman is beyond belief. It's not her fault, it's the writers. Just as you thought a character could not sink any lower. They have nearly put the woman under the ground. I understand this is a soap, but enough is enough. Brooke used to be a favorite character but Even I cannot deal with this even if it is a soap. I am lost for words. It's nasty. Donna brought up the Deacon incident against her own ddaughter. Not that Donna can talk. She went after Ridge and married her sister's ex, Eric. Katie screwed Bridgett over as well. Bridgett was falling for Ridge at one point. It's something wrong with the Logans. I love Hope. I don't care what anyone says about this young woman. Steffie wanted every man that Hope had and set out to seduce each one of them. Steffie and Brooke are two of a kind. Say what you will about Hope but Hope has a right to feel cheated and hurt. She's just wasting it on the wrong guy. Let her grow up in her own time. My only hope is that the writers will do her justice. This is an ever changing world in which we live but some things will never be tolerated. The Brooke character should leave the show for a few years and return reformed. If the show last a few more years. The writing is lousy for this character. The character needs a transformation. It's time for me to leave the show for good. I stopped watching for years and came back. Looks like I will be leaving again and this time for good. So many soaps have left the air and it looks as though another one will soon bite the dust and many of us will not care. We will just keep on watching Y&R because it will go down as the number one soap in U.S. History.

    I love it!
    this is classic Brooke...sexy and stupid, getting knocked up once again by a relative. How old is she anyway that she can conceive after just one "shot". I'm loving this addition to the story.
    Hope is hopeless..Steffy will eventually lose the baby. Remember her falling against her desk? the motorcycle scene is just drama.
    Maya goes back to jail? How? she already served her time. I would tell Bill to get lost and keep dating her man.
    Bill: can you put him in a suit or something other than sleasy shirts and a ridiculous sword around his neck? Time to get kicked to the curb by his wife!

    remember, this is a soap opera. Nothing is suppose to make sense. its not real life..its entertainment.

    Brooke is a TRAMP! She has slept with every man on the show except for Thomas and Liam. Maybe they're next. This is just ridiculous! How do you get pregnant for your sister's husband? Only Brooke Logan can do something like this. She's pathetic! She did the same thing to Bridget with Deacon, and she had sex with Oliver, thinking he was Ridge. I mean, her ovaries should fall out when she stands up because, her insides should be soooo old and messed up, that there is nothing left. I mean this is one of the most ridiculous story lines that BB have written. She's always falling for someone else's man. Damn!!! Then she wants to cry and feel sorry for herself, always after the fact. Get your own life, Brooke, and stop ruining everyone else's life!
