Bold & Beautiful’s Thorsten Kaye Marvels at Steffy and Thomas’ Parent-Trapping of Ridge and Taylor: ‘I Guess They Miss Daddy Tucking Them In?’
The once and likely future couple “have great kids.” But…
It’s not just us. Turns out, Thorsten Kaye has wondered, too, about the way that The Bold and the Beautiful has written Ridge’s children as being obsessed with reuniting him and Taylor. Steffy’s got a company to run, kids to raise and a marriage to maintain, and Thomas has got…
Umm. We’re sure he’s got something on his to-do list. At any rate, “these are two grown people with their own lives, and they want to get Mommy and Daddy to get back together?” Kaye recently mused to Soap Opera Digest. “I guess they miss Daddy tucking them in at night?
“I’m joking, of course,” he added. Ha — we got that.
And though it is hard to believe that Ridge would put up with his children telling him flat out that he should be with Taylor and not “stepmonster” Brooke — we’ve actually written extensively about it — their shenanigans have provided Kaye with a welcome change of pace. “It’s actually been fun to play this new aspect of the story,” he said, “and Ridge and Taylor have great kids.”
“Great” might be a stretch, at least when it comes to pro-grade conniver Thomas. But props to Kaye for speaking from Ridge’s heart.
Before you bop along to read another article, stop off at the below photo gallery, which counts down soapdom’s richest of the rich, from the merely well-off to the few who are truly affluent.
<p>Don’t knock Lauren and surprise sister Jill as the proprietors of the small-screen Claire’s. Their boutiques have kept them for ages in the style to which we’d all like to become accustomed.</p>
<p>Not sure what John is so torn up about in this photo. If son Brady needed surgery, they could afford to buy not only a doctor to operate but a hospital in which to perform the procedure.</p>
<p>Owing to Brooke’s invention of a miraculous wrinkle-free fabric — not to mention her and her siblings’ tendency to marry money — they are wealthy beyond, ahem, BeLieF. So when people say they look like a million bucks, it’s not just a compliment, it’s a fact!</p>
<p>OK, so “the Lockes” aren’t so much a family as they are Ashland alone. That’s fine by him; even though his piggy bank is the size of a farm, he didn’t wanna have to share its contents, anyway!</p>
<p>We know, we know, Lucas goes by Horton now. But that doesn’t change the fact that he and mom Kate have amassed the kind of fortune that would get them seated in the VIP section of even the VIP section!</p>
<p><em>Eye on Fashion</em>? Hardly. Dollar Bill is so named is because he always has his peepers on the Benjamins. Or better yet, the William McKinleys.</p>
<p>Crime pays — really well, apparently. So Port Charles’ Teflon don and his nearest and dearest have been living in the lap of luxury since Sonny went from running a strip club to running the whole town.</p>
<p>Between Lily and Devon’s inheritance from Neil and his added windfall from grandma Katherine, they couldn’t just buy us, they could buy us at an awful markup and <em>still</em> have enough surplus cash to buy us all over again. Also, we may be cheap.</p>
<p>Though their vault may be full of blood money, it’s always spent just fine for Nikolas, Spencer and their cutthroat kinfolk. And if they ever wanted their ill-gotten gains laundered, they could probably get a hand from the family at No. 9… for a price.</p>
<p>Never mind dressing for dinner; Eric and his family oughta dress for even between-meal snacks, given that they made their moolah off fancypants gladrags.</p>
<p>Thanks to Pickle-Lila, ELQ remains a big-business MVP. But it speaks volumes about the Bickersons that, as we’re so often reminded, their mansion isn’t theirs but Monica’s.</p>
<p>What Stefano’s descendants actually produce or do, we have no idea. What we <em>do</em> know, however, is that it earns them enough megabucks to live the sorta over-the-top lifestyle that Robin Leach used to spotlight on his 1990s series.</p>
<p>Ya know what the sweet smell of success <em>really</em> is? A Jabot Cosmetics fragrance. Which is why Jack and his relatives have spent an eternity fending off hostile takeovers (in particular from the family at No. 1 on this list).</p>
<p>Victor’s clan doesn’t just own and operate Titan Industries, it is in and of itself a titan of industry. And given his and his relatives’ willingness to bend the rules, it’s no wonder that they never fail to stand eyeball-deep in riches.</p>
<p>Those who say that money can’t buy love don’t have as much of it as Victor’s family. They’re so affluent that they could sue one another out of a fortune — as his kids did dear old Dad — and nonetheless have enough pocket change left over to purchase a small country. Maybe even a medium-sized one.</p>
