CBS soap opera marks a significant milestone with decades of drama.

When Bold and Beautiful debuted on CBS in 1987 as a sister soap to Young and Restless, with which it has shared many cross-overs, it centered on the Forrester family and their fashion business, Forrester Creations, and introduced conflict with the working-class Logan family. Longtime Soaps.com viewers may remember that Ridge Forrester (then Ronn Moss) was engaged to be married to Caroline Spencer (Joanna Johnson), daughter of mogul Bill Spencer (Jim Storm), in the wedding of the year in the fashion world. However, after Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge laid eyes on one another for the first time, decades of conflict, drama, rivalry and romance were set in motion.
