THE BOLD AND THE RIDICULOUS
By Destiny Eve Pifer
April 23, 2007
No words can describe how disappointing this show has
become. Everyone seems to playing musical beds or else
fading into the background. Now we have the
destruction of a longtime couple, the death of a
character we hardly got to know, the rise of a teen
drama queen and the destruction of various characters.
Bridge aka Ridge and Brooke have been doing the soul
mate dance for over 17 years. For years Brooke chased
after Ridge. She tried to seduce him and even tried to
break up his marriages. Convinced he was her soul mate
she never gave up. Then when she gets him and is about
to walk down the aisle she suddenly decides that Nick
not Ridge is her soul mate. Ridge of course has gladly
moved on with Ashley Abbott but now he has gotten
himself in an even bigger mess.
Somewhere along the line Nick Marone has become the
ultimate prize. He is sleeping with Taylor and
declaring his love. However now Brooke wants him back
and is going to fight Taylor for him. Talk about
disgusting crap. I have never been able to stomach two
women fighting over a man. The fact that Nick was once
married to Brooke’s daughter Bridget and they were
going to have a child together is even more
disgusting. Of course Brooke doesn’t seem to care and
now she and Taylor are fighting over who will bare
Nick’s child. Sick really sick!
We have teen drama queen Phoebe Forrester as the new
siren who seems to be luring in one guy after another.
Instead of finishing High School she has become a
famous model. Come on lets be real here. Sure she is
pretty but when it comes to brains the girl isn’t that
smart. She is in love with a guy whom she once thought
to be her step-uncle/stepbrother. EWWW! Then we have
Shane McGraff who was a bad boy on his way to being
reformed. We never got the chance to know Shane. He
came on and immediately developed a liking to sweet
little Phoebe and was willing to fight a guy named
Harry for her. Harry of course vanished like so many
other characters. Shane went off to find a job but
then suddenly returned even more messed up than
Apparently he never got over his obsession for Phoebe.
He lost his job and became homeless. Even worse he
decided out of the blue to commit suicide. Now of
course Ridge had to be involved and was struggling
with Shane when he pulled the trigger. Afraid to go to
jail he decided to get rid of Shane’s body. Now he and
mommie dearest are partners in crime and the whole
thing is just screwed up.
I can’t for the life of me understand what is so
interesting about Phoebe. Her wide-eyed looks and good
girl attitude grate on my nerves. In my opinion they
need to kill her off and bring back Steffy as the bad
twin. Make her a troublemaker. The whole thing with
Rick and Phoebe is just too gross for my taste. The
girl is what 17 or 18 but looks 15. He is divorced
with a kid somewhere. EWWW!
Bridget is barely on anymore and apparently still hung
up on Nick. Why I have no clue?
Felicia is on the backburner as is Clarke, Thorne,
Storm and Donna. Nice variety huh. Nothing ticks me
off more than favoritism. It’s always the same
characters day in and day out without any stability.
If I were those six I would jump ship and go to
another soap. The ratings are already in the toilet
and its only going to get worse.
My predictions are:
Brooke will drug Nick and get him into bed. Then she
will have sex with him and get pregnant.
Out of obligation he will marry her despite being in
love with Taylor.
Ridge will continue to hide Shane’s disappearance.
Knowing the writers he’ll frame Nick and make it look
like Nick did it.
Steph will help of course.
Phoebe will have yet another man chasing her and will
end up in a triangle while I puke in the garbage can.
Bridget will continue to fade into the background and
if by some chance she snares a new man it will only be
a matter of time before he decides to comfort her
Ashley will be torn between Rick and Ridge.
Jackie and Steph will continue to meddle.
