Can Ivy and Liam cancel their wedding vows in record time – even for Bold?
Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) continues his losing streak at the altar by marrying his girlfriend Ivy Forrester (Ashleigh Brewer) in an emergency green card wedding on Wednesday 6 July. Blissfully unaware of what he’s done, Liam’s ex-wife Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) drops by the day after the wedding on Thursday 7 July to remind him with a special presentation how much they loved one another, complete with an actual slideshow. Steffy’s reaction to Liam’s confession is spectacular, but as she’s shrieking, “You made me believe that we were getting back together! How is this happening again? How are you marrying Ivy? Ivy, my cousin?” and hurling vases at Liam on Monday 11 July, an immigration officer drops by Forrester’s offices to apologise to Ivy – it turns out she’s been a US citizen all along. Whoops! While Steffy sulks, Liam sweats and Ivy spends the next few days weighing up whether to tell her new husband the truth, we were wondering if this could be Bold’s shortest marriage. Let’s check out the competition… NB! Dates are US broadcasts.
ERIC & BROOKE: 1 MONTH
A freshly divorced Eric Forrester (John McCook) and his former daughter-in-law Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) eloped on 14 October 2005 as a way to assure Brooke’s daughter Bridget (Ashley Jones) that Brooke wasn’t going to try to steal her husband Nick (Jack Wagner) from her. But Eric had the marriage annulled on 21 November in an attempt to see if Brooke loved him enough to come back to him. She didn’t.
LIAM & STEFFY: 2 MONTHS
Liam and Steffy married on 22 April 2013 – less than two months after Steffy interrupted Hope (Kim Matula) and Liam’s February 2013 wedding in Italy to reveal that she was pregnant by Liam. But after Steffy lost the baby in May and learnt that she’ll never have kids, she told Liam that they were over and flew away to Paris on 13 June.
MACY & DEACON: 2 MONTHS
Badboy Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan) and Sally Spectra’s (Darlene Conley) daughter Macy Alexander (Bobbie Eakes) got hitched on 11 August 2003. But Macy died when gangsters dropped a chandelier on her head during her opening act at a nightclub owned by one of Deacon’s old Las Vegas cronies on 3 October. She never regained consciousness and died on 29 October.
Steffy loses her cool after learning what Liam and Ivy have done.
