Onto the lives of the Forresters! Bold & Beautiful is getting fairly good this time around. Sure there is a lot going on, but at least they are giving some of the characters that normally don’t have a back bone a back bone. Yes, I’m talking about Hope!

I love that she is standing her ground with Quinn. Who in their right mind would want their child subjected to a person like Quinn? Looks like Wyatt is also standing beside his wife’s wishes. Is that because he fears she will leave him if he doesn’t or is it because he knows his mom is a crazy woman? I’m thinking a little of both. Will Deacon be able to walk away from Quinn? If he knows what is best for his relationship with Hope he will or he won’t have one with her AGAIN!

Love that Liam is moving on with Ivy, but still wish he was with Hope. I actually thought that there would still be a chance for the two of them, but not sure if that boat is going to float. Are they going to let Liam and Ivy become an item and then send Hope to Liam again or will this be the end for them? I do think Liam and Ivy are cute together, but not sure if she is the woman for him.

Caroline is falling for Ridge and I do not think that just because Ridge is able to design again that they will not be together. For some reason it seems that Ridge is not truly committed to Katie and that he doesn’t really want Brooke, but he is infatuated with Caroline. Could the bond between Ridge and Caroline be enough to blow the Forrester family apart or will they both be able to refrain from one another and move forward?

I don’t know about the rest of you, but Myah turns my stomach. I don’t like her, don’t like the way she acts or looks. I think they need to write her off or recast her. Of course, her role is fairly important right now, but when this all blows up in her face, she needs to be axed from Forrester and the show.

Well, that is it for this week. I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend. Get out and look at the leaves changing while we have great weather. Enjoy your time with your family. I will catch you all next week with some more updates of our favorite soaps from WDBJ7.

She’s BACK! Phyllis is back in all her glory, white dress, hair done and ready to make a smashing entrance at Nick and Sharon’s wedding! Did you all see the faces of everyone in the church? Like they had seen a ghost! I thought the best one was the one Sharon gave or maybe Kelly. They were both really stunned. I think the entire church was stunned. Not sure how this Phyllis will pan out in the long run, but she has sure gotten off to a great start in Genoa City.

Sharon running out of the church after seeing Phyllis was great. I just hope that Phyllis blows her out of the water before she has a chance to marry Nick for real. Sure, Faith will be hurt, but she needs to know what type of woman her mom truly is.

Nick must think there is a slight chance that whatever the secret is may be enough for him to step aside because he went to Phyllis to ask her if she had memory of the secret. Then Sharon comes in asking the same thing. I’m sure the smile Phyllis had on her face when they both left means she knows what the secret is, but she is going to wait for the best time to drop that bomb.

Jack should have let Kelly leave when he had the chance. We know he has feelings for Kelly, but like Lilly was telling Devon, they are not the same as he has for Phyllis. Jack and “Red” have a connection that goes really deep. I’m sure Kelly wants to be as far away from Phyllis when she gets out of the hospital.

I know I would! Phyllis is scary at times and it looks as if this Phyllis is going to make the other one look tame.

This love triangle between Billy, Victoria and Chelsea needs to end. Adam needs to make his way back to Genoa City so Billy will go back to Victoria. On the other hand, he may be headed that way already.

Considering how he heard Chelsea call out to Adam in her sleep. He just got up and left. Will he go to Victoria? Would Victoria take him back? I think she would!

Lilly needs to watch her step when it comes to minding Devon’s business. He is not happy with her or the employees of the GCAC sticking their nose where it does not belong. Lilly even wanted to tell Neil she thinks Devon has a woman on the side. WOW! Would Neil be able to put the pieces of the puzzle together? Probably not, he had a hard time seeing their feelings for each other when he had his sight.

Let’s get busy with Hope and all she has going on lately. Yes, she is pregnant and Quinn now knows this.

Quinn is NOT happy with Hope right now because Hope stood up to her and told her that she wanted her nowhere near her baby. Can you blame Hope? NOPE! What I don’t understand is how Wyatt can even think of allowing his crazy mom around his child? Does he not think she would be just as crazy over the baby as she has been over him? I have to say, if I were Hope I would be a bit scared. Get her out of town before she does something really bad. I honestly do not look for Hope to carry to term.

Charlie is so cute when he shows his little jealous side about Pam. Who would have thought Pam would have someone as sweet as Charlie chasing after her? Was it the lemon bars? Does anyone remember when Pam was so crazy and going after Donna? Remember that time that she had Donna up at Big Bear and poured honey all over her and then opened the door to the cabin to bring the bears in? Those were the days of great storylines!

As for Caroline and Ridge, I do not like where this storyline is going. At all! I think Caroline having dreams of Ridge are just gross. He is old! I am not too pleased with this new Ridge, but like him better than Moss. Even so, don’t make the storyline too difficult to watch.

Will Ridge or Rick be CEO of Forrester? I’m thinking that Rick will get it, but then again, Eric has played favorites with Ridge for a long time. Will Stephanie being gone be the reason Eric leans in a different direction with the new CEO or will it be because Ridge can’t design anymore and he wants him to have a different reason to come to work each day?

I was kind of shocked when Brooke decided to step away and let Katie have Bill back. She is normally a very greedy woman. Not in her nature to care about anyone else or their feelings. Maybe she is mellowing out in her older years. Who knows, she may even be gaining some morals.

I can’t believe this is my 24th blog about the best soaps on TV, but it is. I really enjoy sharing my thoughts with all the viewers and like to hear your thoughts as well. Feel free to comment and share. Thanks again for making Your Hometown Soapbox part of your life and for allowing me into your home.

I will be on vacation next week, so there will not be a blog, but I will catch you all up on Oct. 24. Keep watching WDBJ7. Have a wonderful week.

Can anyone say “bail hearing”? I was wondering what in the world had happened when everyone who is anyone in Genoa City landed in jail, but then the writers began to fill in the gap by going back in time.
