Hottest Sto­ries

Since re­turn­ing to town at the start of the year, THE BOLD & THE BEAU­TI­FUL’S Hope has made “sup­port­ing Liam” No. 1 on her agenda. She was al­ready highly con­cerned about her old flame in the wake of his mar­i­tal col­lapse, but ever since Bill’s shoot­ing, the blonde has be­come even more alarmed about his well-be­ing!

Liam hasn’t ex­actly been him­self in re­cent weeks, and the fact hasn’t es­caped Hope’s no­tice. “I think when you know some­one as long as Hope’s known him, you know when some­thing isn’t right,” ex­plains her por­trayer, An­nika Noelle. “She’s so famil- iar with him that her an­ten­nae im­me­di­ately went up, and now she’s in­cred­i­bly con­cerned.”

Though Hope and St­effy re­cently got into a ver­i­ta­ble shout­ing match over the man they mu­tu­ally love, Noelle says she doesn’t see her al­ter ego back­ing away from a sit­u­a­tion she sees as highly trou­bling. Hope orig­i­nally tried to take a diplo­matic ap­proach to deal­ing with her ex up un­til this stage of the game, but Noelle sug­gests she is about to get a lot more as­sertive in mak­ing sure she has his back. “She knows some­thing is go­ing on, and she’s ready and wait­ing to catch him, help him through this and get to the bot­tom of it,” says the ac­tress. “She just wants to be there for him, so that’s what she’s try­ing to do.”

This week, Hope’s “con­cern” for her ex takes an in­ter­est­ing twist when she goes so far as to kiss him! As for what will hap­pen next, Noelle says that she’d pre­fer to let the fall­out speak for it­self. “I’m re­ally ex­cited for the fans to see what’s com­ing,” she says. “I think it’s go­ing to be a real sur­prise!”
