We Speak Out
THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’S Bill and Brooke have a long and intense history, but when he swooped in for an onthe-lips kiss after she visited him in his office to discuss Katie’s custody suit, there was a decidedly creepy #Metoo vibe to his startling pass. Dollar Bill may be a card-carrying jerk in any number of ways, but something about the untoward advance felt exceptionally skeevy in the light of today’s cultural climate,
LOVE, ACTUALLY While we think THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Summer should have her head examined for her apparent disinterest in Kyle — girl, have you not seen his six-pack abs? — we’re kind of digging their role reversal. Way too often, it’s the gal who tends to be in love with the guy when she jumps into bed with him, while the guy is more interested in sex with no strings attached. To watch Kyle decide that he cared too much for Summer considering Brooke hadn’t given him any signals to suggest she’d be receptive to such a move. Frankly, we’re a little surprised the blonde felt compelled to lobby for him with Katie in the first place. When you consider that Katie and Bill’s divorce was a direct result of Brooke’s involvement with her brotherin-law, perhaps Donna would have been the better emissary in a situation like this one!
to engage in casual sex was a refreshing change! That said, we’re waiting for the day the hunk moves on to someone more worthy of his attentions ( hello, Lola!), and Summer realizes that she lost her chance for something much better than a roll in the hay!
DRESS FOR SUCCESS Backburnering Hope For The Future mere weeks after funding a splashy public launch seems a bit baffling from a business standpoint, but we never quite understood the whole charitable component of Hope’s line. Is a label predicated on giving away free stuff really the best way to protect Forrester’s bottom line? Hope’s message is a fine one in theory, but we highly doubt young social justice warriors of
the world are ever going to graduate to purchasing $10,000 couture dresses, as the blonde so naively suggested. If Steffy really wanted to stick it to “Saint Hope,” maybe she ought to suggest a “Buy a pair, give a pair” angle for her Intimates line — goodness knows an indigent person would probably appreciate a new set of skivvies to Hope’s chif fon scarves! … or did you find it odd that Y& R’s Sharon didn’t phone the cops to report trouble at Crimson Lights after getting a call from Tessa, who sounded like she was being assaulted? Instead, Sharon drove all the way back to town from the ranch — when the GCPD is only down the block — wasting valuable minutes that could have been used to possibly stop the crime! Of course, we’re finding Tessa’s actions just as bizarre, beginning with her claim that she needs $20,000 to pay off the smugglers she hired to sneak her sister, Crystal, into Canada. Um… since when do people like that take IOUS?
“Wait… you’re saying Casual-sex Fridays aren’t a thing?”
Bill definitely crossed the line with Brooke!
“I already am dressed, Hope. I was going to lunch. Wanna join me?”
“Tessa, did you seriously just suggest I put up my dukes?”
