That is just who Hope is, my opinion, she is just like Brooke in a lot of ways. Remember she is the daughter of Brooke and Deacon, so she has some messed up DNA to begin with. Remember who Deacon was? He was Brooke’s son-in-law when she slept with him and got pregnant with Hope.

Deacon is doing everything in his power to get Brooke back, but will it be enough? Will Hope wishing her parents were happy assist him in his venture? I hope so, I have always liked Deacon with Brooke, but then again, Brooke doesn’t go for men with no money or power. Deacon doesn’t have either one of those, so he may be out of luck where Brooke is concerned.

What a week this has been on both of the soaps! Not sure where to begin with all the drama and back stabbing.

Let’s start off with the love triangle of Neil, Devon and Hillary. Can anyone say “it isn’t a secret to anyone who is not blind?” Seriously! Jack has already caught on to the way Devon and Hillary feel and he isn’t even around them that much. Does Lilly not see what is going on right in front of her? You would think that she would be able to tell that her brother is in love with her stepmother.

Neil is going to be so hurt when the truth comes out. I still think he will stumble up on the truth while blind.

Jill has planted the seed in Lauren’s head that Michael is cheating on her or has she? Yep, I think so.

Now that Lauren has that little idea will she think that Avery and Michael are having an affair or will they actually have one? I think Michael loves Lauren too much to do that to her, but then again, one just never knows what is going to happen. It would almost serve Lauren right for cheating on Michael last year.

Sharon has another daughter!! We all knew that was going to be the plot a couple of weeks ago, but to see how sick Ian is just amazes me. Ian marrying Mariah! That is just so wrong. I hope Nick and the GCPD get to her in time. I’m sure that since Kevin is on the case that it will be a lot easier to find her. I feel that someone is going to end up killing Ian before this is all said and done. Maybe it will be Dylan and then Avery will turn to Michael for comfort? Hmmm could be.

What is Abby thinking kissing Ben? That is going to be interesting. Will he move on with Victoria’s sister since it seems as if Victoria is going to be back with Billy? Will Victoria be able to handle that relationship? Things do need to heat up for Abby, but this time let’s hope she isn’t such a child about her relationship and she actually has matured a little.

Victor has done it again with getting Summer to sign those papers without even realizing it. Now Phyllis is going to be waking up and hopefully telling the truth about Sharon. Nick needs to know that Summer is his biological daughter. I am not sure what will happen between Nick and Sharon once this news comes to surface.

Kaye’s memorial was beautiful, until Nikki began her falling all over impression. She had me laughing when she was trying to talk to Ben and the expressions on her face. Yea, she is an alcoholic, but goodness, you would think that since she has played one SO many times that she would be better at it.

I’m sure Paul will find out first and this may upset Nina, but I bet Paul ends up leaving Christine because of Nikki or that Christine leaves Paul because of Nikki.

The Bold & the Beautiful is beginning to get a bit boring. Sure they have a couple of good story lines, but they drag them out so long. Liam should have been with Hope the minute Hope found out that he was in Paris, but nope, they are going to drag it out until Christmas!

So glad to see Ivy beginning to put her moves on Liam. Take that Hope! You may not know what you want, but Liam did and now Ivy wants Liam....go Ivy!

Brooke is making Bill work to get her, but will it work? Sure, she will end up back with Bill Spencer and Deacon will be left out in the cold. I honestly think that Deacon has changed a bit and may deserve a chance with Brooke. Maybe Hope will be able to assist her Dad a little and get her Mom to see Deacon in a new light.

Rick needs to watch the help a bit better. I think there is some trouble brewing for his character in the not-so-far-off future. I think between running Forrester Creations, his love life, and the fact that Ridge can’t design anymore; he will have his hands full.

I guess we will have to wait to see if Phyllis wakes up from her coma, does Michael have an affair with Avery, will Nikki get caught nipping on the Vodka, does Devon get the woman, and will Kevin save Mariah and make Sharon the happiest woman in Genoa City? Will Ridge be able to design again, will Brooke fly off with Bill, and will Bob Barker take a couple more punches at Wyatt?

Keep tuning into WDBJ7 for all the daily drama of the soaps and see you all next week. Have a safe and happy holiday.

Let’s start with the Mariah and Sharon plot. Can she really be Sharon’s daughter? Of course she can and she is (in my opinion)! Helen took Mariah for her own when she knew Sharon was giving her daughter away to begin with. Will Mariah or Sharon be able to handle the news of them being family? Will Sharon go even more insane than she already is?

I think this storyline for Summer and Austin is a bit much. Yes, I am glad he did not have to go to jail, but I do think the mushy stuff between them is too much. Did Austin really think Summer was going to let him go to jail when she has millions of dollars in trust? Of course not, he has it made and he knows it. I can’t wait to see what Phyllis thinks of her son-in-law. This should be interesting.

Victor is really up to his old tricks again. Making the grant available for Daniel to get him out of the country so that he can do what he needs to with Phyllis and letting Summer have access to her trust so she can pay to keep Austin out of jail. What a great grandfather he is and such a loving man to try to help Phyllis. Yeah, right! He is only out to find out the secret that Sharon is hiding.

Nick is trying too hard to save Sharon from Mariah when he should be trying to save himself from Sharon. What will happen with him when he finds out the truth about Summer and what Sharon has done to Phyllis? Will he ever be able to love again? Yep, he will be with Phyllis. I say this because Jack and Kelly will have moved in with each other and possibly be married by the time Phyllis comes out of her coma and gets her memory back. I do not think she will remember a lot of things when she first wakes up.

Devon is out of luck once again when it comes to his love for Hillary. Hillary’s guilt will keep her away from Devon and with Neil, but will Neil overhear the two of them talking or will his sight come back just in time to catch them together? I’m thinking that Devon and Hillary will be together and Neil will begin to get some flashes of light and images and then BAM there will be his wife and his son together!
