Watch The Bold and the Beautiful

The Bold and the Beautiful is a soap opera that airs on CBS. The show is about the Forrester clan who own a fashion house called Forrester Creations. The head of the company is Eric Forrester. He is a brilliant fashion designer who has four children named Ridge, Thorne, Kristen and Felicia with his wife Stephanie.

Stephanie is someone who says what she wants and has a love-hate relationship with Brooke. She sees Brooke as a younger version of herself and wants to keep her away from her family.

Brooke Logan loves men, and the Forrester men love Brooke as well. Brooke first appears as a caterer at a Forrester family function. She is studying chemistry and comes from a middle class family. She instantly takes a liking to Ridge, who is the eldest child of the Forrester's and the child that Stephanie favors the most. The two are always on-again-off-again. Ridge calls her his soul mate, but the timing is never right for the two, and they break up often.

Ridge is a designer and is later revealed to not be Eric's biological son. Ridge eventually marries Taylor, and the two have son Thomas and twins Steffy and Phoebe. Brooke marries Eric, and the couple has two children together named Rick and Bridget. The marriage does not work out because the two love other people.

Early on in the soap opera, Rick is in love with a girl named Amber. She has a son named Little Eric and tries to impress the Forresters because she grew up poor. Stephanie takes a fond liking to her, but Brooke does not approve of the relationship. The relationship with Amber and Rick ends due to trust issues. Amber leaves town and takes her son with her.

Thorne has always lived in his brother Ridge's shadow. He had two great loves in his life. They are Macy and Darla. Macy is Sally Spectra's daughter; she ran a rival fashion house and was an enemy of Stephanie's. Macy allegedly died but was found to be alive years later. Darla was Macy's best friend and really saw her as a sister and Sally as a surrogate mom.

One night Darla and Thorne were together, and the two conceived a child. This stunned Darla, so she offered to give the baby to Macy. Macy eventually dies and the two name their daughter Alexandra to honor her. Darla dies a year later after Taylor Hayes hit her when she was drunk.

Thorne is seen as someone who is steadfast and works hard for the family. Years into the show, it is revealed that Massimo Marone fathered Ridge. Stephanie knowingly passed him off as Eric's child. Jacqueline Payne also had a son with Massimo and his name is Nick Payne.

Brooke and Bridget have a good mother-daughter relationship, but that was shaken when Brooke slept with Bridget's husband Deacon. Brooke became pregnant with her son in law's child and tried to pass it off as Whip's.

Whip used this information to his advantage to try to advance his career at Forrester Creations. He ended up developing a soft spot for Brooke after tormenting her for months. The truth came out, and Brooke named her daughter Hope.

Nick and Brooke have a romance, but she, as always, goes back to Ridge. She has a baby and does not know who the father is. The baby is later named R.J after it is proven that Ridge is in fact his biological father. She also has a son named Jack that her nemesis Taylor gave birth to after her frozen eggs were mixed up with Taylor's.

Stephanie and Brooke have an interesting relationship. No matter what has happened the two always are within each other's orbit. When Stephanie was dying from lung cancer and was in the woods, Brooke was whose arms she died in. It was an interesting way to put their rivalry to rest for eternity.
