Half-brothers Thorne Forrester and Ridge Forrester tolerated one another better than ever before during their last meeting, but this sibling rivalry is one of the longest-running on the show. Entrenched in their mother Stephanie’s favoritism toward Ridge, they’ve battled over women, and at work, where Thorne often ended up working in the basement while Ridge designed in the big office.
Stephanie and Brooke
Stephanie Forrester and Brooke Logan’s rivalry is legendary on Bold & Beautiful, as Stephanie balked at her son Ridge’s interest in the girl she viewed as not being good enough for him. Brooke got involved with Stephanie’s other son, Thorne, and Steph’s husband, Eric as well. They also battled over Brooke’s children, but came to an understanding in the end, with Brooke being there for Stephanie, at her request, when she died from cancer. In fact, they became so close, they earned an entry in our gallery of Bold & Beautiful’s best friendships.
Thomas and Rick
Thomas Forrester and Rick Forrester are members of the same family, but have sported an intense dislike for one another since they were younger. Thomas torched Rick’s home after his involvement in the car accident that ended his sister Phoebe’s life, and they squared off when both wanted to step in at Forrester Creations. The two have also been rivals in love, such as when they competed for Caroline Spencer’s attentions.
Brooke and Taylor
Another iconic rivalry on Bold and Beautiful, Brooke Logan and Taylor Hayes have locked horns repeatedly over Ridge Forrester for decades, with his mother Stephanie often getting in between. Their clashes have turned nasty, and after their daughters grew up and became rivals, it was just another reason to tangle!
Steffy and Hope
Steffy Forrester and Hope Logan picked up where their mothers, Taylor and Brooke, left off and began competing for the same men almost as soon as they were old enough to have love interests. Though they’ve tried to rise above, their rivalry over Liam in particular seems as though it may never truly be put to rest.
Pam and Donna
Pam Douglas’ dislike for Donna Logan, who fell in love with her sister Stephanie’s husband Eric, knew no bounds and really turned nasty. Pam once covered Donna with honey (her go-to during sex with Eric) and left her to be eaten by a bear! Donna and Pam get along now, but whew, this was a rivalry for the books. Don’t believe us? Dive into Donna and Eric’s photo gallery to get the gory details!
Sally and Stephanie
Another rivalry for the ages on Bold and Beautiful, Sally Spectra butted heads with Stephanie Forrester time and again. Stephanie was no fan of the design-stealing redhead, and Sally backed down from no one. The two mellowed toward one another in later years.
Bill and Ridge
Bill Spencer Jr and Ridge Forrester share a mutual loathing that has become so nasty as to be life-threatening at times. Aside from punch-ups over women and disagreements, and volleying insults, Bill had Ridge dumped out of a helicopter, which could have killed him, and Ridge was accused of shooting Bill!
Quinn and Sheila
Quinn Fuller has clashed with more than a few rivals during her time on Bold and Beautiful, but when the notorious Sheila Carter showed up looking to take Quinn’s man, things went to another level. Quinn and Sheila’s rivalry was also one of the most anticipated, and did not disappoint, as the duo tangled physically on numerous occasions.
Ridge and Deacon
Ridge’s extreme dislike of Deacon dates back to the scandal involving Brooke in which she wound up pregnant with his child (Hope) while he was married to Bridget. Though Ridge wasn’t part of the debacle, he loves to cite this as part of his reason for barring Sharpe from the house and property… well, that and the New Year’s Eve kiss Deacon and Brooke shared while Ridge was out of town… and the fact that he’s a jailbird who “can’t be trusted.” Deacon, for his part, feels Ridge treats Brooke terribly and doesn’t deserve her. Hence, the broom closet brawl!
