Eric Forrester really can keep a secret between the sheets!
The Bold & The Beautiful Weekdays SABC3 (*193) 18:30
Well, well, well. If you thought that Bill and Brooke’s (Don Diamont and Katherine Kelly Lang) sexcapades in that secret office shag pad were shocking, just look what the crazy cat lady has dragged in. On Monday 24 July, Quinn (Rena Sofer) sashays over to her new mystery lover… her boss Eric Forrester (John McCook)! Quinn and Eric are convinced that they’re just two lonely people finding comfort in each other, but no one else will see it that way. And that’s why this affair has to stay a secret. Good luck with that!
ERIC’S BAD ROMANCES
On Tuesday 25 July, Eric reminds Quinn that their affair isn’t for public consumption, but before she can be offended, he admits that his taste in women has always been adventurous. “I’m known for my bad judgment,” he tells a snickering Quinn. “I have a long, inglorious history of hooking up with bad girls. There was Sheila (Kimberlin Brown – who has just returned to Bold screens in the US), Sally Spectra (Darlene Conley), Jackie (Lesley-Anne Down), Donna (Jennifer Gareis)… There were pictures of that one. In the newspaper.” John says that “Eric likes a strong woman who is focused and who knows what she wants. He likes that. And yes, he does like his women a little off- centre”. Off centre? Donna was accused of poisoning Eric in 2008, Jackie was a hooker and blackmailing sexual predator. If Sally wasn’t stealing Forrester designs, she was swapping babies. And where do we even start with death-faking bigamist murderess Sheila, who used a baby as a human shield in 2003? Quinn could just be the perfect match for Eric!
John is convinced that Quinn and Eric’s only agenda with this fling is the pleasure of each other’s company. “Rena and I are intent on playing this as the real thing: that Quinn has changed for the better, that this is true love – and we’ve had no hints to the contrary from our writers,” he reveals. Can Eric keep up with Quinn’s S&M appetite? John jokes that Eric was used to that with Stephanie (Susan Flannery), “But the leather is so old, it’s cracked!”
What would the Forresters say if they walked in on this?
