The Bold and the Beautiful
Catch a glimpse at how happy parents Darin Brooks (Wyatt) and Kelly Kruger (Mackenzie, Young and Restless) celebrated the first birthday of their daughter. Things are a whole lot less happy on the soap opera as Steffy’s friends and family gathered together to give her a much-needed intervention. We wonder where Taylor is when she’s needed the most, and it’s not just because of the state of her daughter. Find out why else she should be back in town before getting our thoughts on the story that should currently be in play but isn’t. Meanwhile, Thomas has been magically redeemed and we’re not buying it. But at least it looks like Liam will finally be getting what’s coming to him as he heads for a showdown over who should raise Kelly. Visit the Bold and the Beautiful news room to read all of that and then get Richard’s take on the missed opportunities in Steffy’s story, her giant leap into addiction, and his bewilderment at why Hope is so friendly with Thomas in the Bold and the Beautiful column.

The Young and the Restless
