    The Bold and the Beautiful - DAILY UPDATES

    In our 'Daily Updates' section, gives you your daily dose of what's happening on 'The Bold and the Beautiful'! We invite you to read our in-depth updates which we try to post before 6:00pm ET!

    Maybe It's For The Best.

    Monday, May 14 2012
    Rick wonders about Caroline, Stephanie and Brooke face-off, and Brooke visits Liam.

    At Forrester, Stephanie tells Brooke that Hope needs help, not a new husband. Brooke growls that she's getting help, and she's also getting Liam! Stephanie suggests Brooke prepare herself for the possibility that may not happen. They argue over what it means that Liam tore up the papers. Brooke wonders how Steffy worked it. Stephanie angrily says she didn't do anything. Brooke says she'll send her an invitation to the wedding. Stephanie exits.

    In Liam's office, Hope tells him that Steffy was over for dinner the night before. She asks if Steffy went to his place. Steffy appears and says she did. Liam says she didn't come in, they just talked at the door. Steffy says he did invite her in, but she won't step foot there unless she's moving back in permanently. Hope hopes Steffy won't turn down a dinner invitation after they're married. Liam says they're acting different. Steffy says it's due to the encounter on the mountain. Hope apologizes again, and then wonders again if there is something that brought about this change in Steffy's attitude. Hope says she understands why Steffy never signed the annulment papers, but now it's her time with Liam - to be married in Italy.

    In Rick's office, Caroline asks Amber how she's not bothered by Rick dressing in women's clothing, before leaving. Amber puts on red lipstick and Rick appears. He says she looks great, but then asks about Caroline. He has no idea why Caroline is avoiding him. Amber asks how any woman could avoid him. He says she's a sweetheart, which moves Amber. Rick hugs her and they kiss. He asks Amber what she's heard about Caroline and Thomas. Amber says she seems to like him a lot. Later, Rick catches up with Caroline and he asks why she's been so 'busy' lately - did he do something to offend her? Caroline says sometimes you find out something about someone, and things change. Rick is puzzled. Caroline exits. Amber soothes Rick. They kiss.

    In Steffy's office, Stephanie tells her that Brooke overheard them talking and knows about the annulment papers - she's probably headed Liam's way. Steffy calls him and warns him. She tells Stephanie that he said, "Maybe it's for the best." They speculate about what that might mean, and why he tore up the papers.

    Brooke arrives at Liam's office and asks if it's true he tore up the annulment papers. He says, "Yes." He says it felt like the right thing. Brooke says it wasn't for Hope! She goes on about how much Hope loves him - they could have been married already! Brooke demands to know if he's going to marry her or not.

    Spoilers for Tomorrow on The Bold and the Beautiful:

    Liam tells Brooke to mind her own business.

    Hope finds out why Caroline is avoiding Rick.

    Amber expresses her feelings toward Rick.

    We ask that everyone please follow these guidelines to ensure that everyone enjoys themselves on!

    Contact email: Addy at The moderator reserves the right not to respond to emails. Guidelines

    1. Abuse: Flaming of actors or posters will not be tolerated - whether it be acting or physical appearance, profanity, racial, ethnic, religious, or sexual-orientation slurs. Character bashing in a thread that clearly says "no bashing" is not allowed, but in other threads you are free to state your dislike for a character. We do not allow sexually-oriented material, nude avatars, or any other offensive material on the site or in email to staff of the site. We reserve the right to edit or remove postings that go against the abuse guidelines. We encourage you to use constructive criticism and tact. You are welcome to voice your opinion and debate/ argue the point, however, don't argue with the poster!

    2.Spamming and Removal of Posts: We reserve the right to move off topic posts to the lounge and to remove all spam and spammers that register with the sole intention of spamming. We are under no obligation to remove that which offends you just because you do not like it. Double posting is considered spamming so please refrain from double posting. Useless posts (including ‘bumping’ threads) with no content and nonsensical posts eat up space and waste everyone's time. Writers will bump at their own discretion. Any offensive posts can and will be removed and any harassing posts will be made available to the proper authorities. *

    3.Reporting Posts: The moderators try to ensure our site is a place where all can be comfortable. Due to the overwhelming amount of posts daily, we may miss the odd 'bad post'. If you happen to come across a post that violates our guidelines, contact a moderator. (or SheKnows LLC) may monitor discussions but we are not under obligation to review each and every post, nor are we obligated to share with the posters the solution that we came too. We expect posters to behave in a mature, respectful and courteous manner, while using common sense.

    4.Copyright Laws: While you are free to post short excerpts of blogs and articles that you find useful from elsewhere on the web, please be sure that you also post the source from which you got the information. If you wish to post an entire article or selection of pictures you must have full written consent of the copyright holder. If you are not positive if you can post something, please ask admin first.**

    5.Privacy: Respect the privacy of individuals on the boards. Remember that these forums are viewable by the public, and posts may be included in search engine indexes, so if you post private information it is available for anyone to find. Read our Privacy Policy at ***

    6.Online Etiquette: Good etiquette online means that you DON'T USE ALL CAPITAL LETTERS when you post! You may use a few words capitalized to add to your post, or utilize the bold and italic buttons for emphasis in your posts. Using all caps can result in post removal.

    7.Titling Your Posts: If you have a SPOILER or a RUMOR you'd like to share with, we ask that you please ensure that your title is named appropriately. We ask that you please DO NOT post the actual spoiler in the title. Posting spoilers in thread titles will result in a warning for the first offense, and banning for the second offense. If you get the spoiler from the website, please include a link back to the page you found it on so others can read the updates for themselves if they wish.

    8.Banning: Banning is done as a last resort and we will try to first contact and come to a solution to problems that involve real community members before taking action. Posting on our boards is a privilege, not a right. We do not, however, delete screen names at request. We do not permit you to have multiple accounts or change your screen name. If we find that you have more than one account, we'll delete any extras as we see fit. For more on bans please read our FAQs at

    9.Censorship and "Freedom of Speech": The US Bill of Rights allows citizens the right to free speech in a public forum without limitations imposed by the State. ("Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech.") SheKnows LLC sites are not "public forums"; these sites are private forums open to the public. As a general rule, however, we uphold the ideals of the Constitution and do not condone the censorship of ideas. We allow relatively free and open discussion for most topics but we adhere to a simple tenet of respect.

    Hi Candace,

    Just a quick question? Respectfully, may I ask why the Collective (Team Spencer/SteffY), the grographical list of posters, and the Fellowship (Team Hope/Logan) is a no-no?

    Just hoping (no pun intended, smile) that we could get some clarity - because it seemed lots of fun for the posters. Especially when the S/L is driving us all bonkers. I understand it can be posted elsewhere - but posters don't really go there (I know I don't), as I just always stay on the Daily Updates Board.

    Thanks for your consideration and reply.

    OMG - Will Brooke ever let it go. Now she is all up in Liam's face! I swear she is worst than Bill and I thought he took the cake. If she would stay out of this mess - I'm sure things would work out best for everyone! Can we send her on a long journey to NOWHERE! Just sick of her!

    Posted by radmommy at Monday, May 14 2012 11:00 AM

    Wow if Liam had told Brooke to mind her own business a long time ago me thinks things would be totally different about now. He's actually getting a backbone. Well sort of.

    I think Dr. Barton needs to have a session with Brooke and ask her point blank why she is so obsessed with Hope "getting the man" when it's clear that the man isn't good for her and is conflicted between another woman who just happens to be his current wife.

    Oh what does Liam mean it just seem like the right thing to do? Well yes I can see that he felt it was the right thing to tear up the papers and kiss Steffy... but what does that mean Liam?

    And we are back to Hope shoving fairies in her ears to block out the sounds of reason and reality. What is this "my turn" stuff. Are they 3 and 5? This is the argument I have between my 3 & 5 yro little girls.

    I can see why Stephanie is getting angry at Brooke for saying that Steffy is to blame for Liam tearing up the papers but well in a way she is. He's in love with her and that's why he tore up the papers. So yes it is her fault Brooke won't want to hear that though.

    Rick - hilarious. He doesn't walk pretty good in high heels. So for the fact that it was mentioned that Amber put on red lipstick and kissed Rick, I am assuming that Caroline sees him in lipstick and freaks as well.

    I'll have to watch the epi tonight.

    I mean Rick *does* walk pretty well in heels.

    Have a great day!!

    Brooke,Brooke, pls give it a rest! My goodness, where's the stop button on you? If the man wants to marry your daughter then he will do so on his own terms. I have to agree with others, you are somewhat pimping you daughterout on a daily basic (shame on you). You have a husband and other family members beside Hope to deal with...little RJ, needs you to make him a P&J sandwich.

    Yeah HOhopeless ridge would invite his "REAL DAUGHTER" to his home....Dumb freaking spoiled brat!

    The writers need to find a meaningful storyline for Brooke because this one isn't working.
