The Bold and the Beautiful:
Sasha admitted to Zende that she faked the pregnancy and wanted to be credited for being honest. Though she asked Nicole for forgiveness, Nicole refused her. It wasn’t until Julius convinced his family to forgive him that everyone agreed to give Sasha another chance. Caroline was surprised to see Thomas still at the mansion and learned he wasn’t going to let Ridge force him out of town – or out of Douglas’ life. When Ridge appeared, Thomas made it clear he was in charge of his life, not Ridge, and planned to watch his son grow up. Elsewhere, Bill wanted Ridge out as CEO of Forrester and ordered Justin to dig up dirt on the dressmaker. Katie found Thomas at Forrester and admitted she knew the truth about Douglas’ paternity and that she’d been the one who told Ridge to come clean. Just as Katie went on to say she couldn’t let Ridge keep such a huge secret, Bill overheard outside the door and later got Katie to admit the truth surrounding Ridge, Douglas and Thomas. Katie warned Bill not to repeat the secret. Read the Bold and the Beautiful daily recaps for details regarding Rick’s big announcement, which led to Bill telling Brooke about Douglas’ paternity.

As Vikki took the podium and donated five million dollars, Travis appeared. He walked away but later angrily confronted Vikki about being a Newman. Elsewhere, Nick refused to allow Adam to have Constance’s body exhumed again in order to prove he hadn’t killed her. Though Chelsea wanted Adam to reveal Christian’s paternity to Nick, which had been Sage’s dying secret, Adam refused and planned to fight his case in court, where Elise Moxley was assigned to preside as judge.
