I can honestly say that I am so glad that Hope is gone! I know she will probably be back, but at least we all get a break from her for a few weeks. A much needed one, if you ask me. I have not seen anything about her leaving on the show. Does Wyatt even know that she has left?

Katie has finally given up on the ribbon that Ridge put on her finger months ago and has a new life on her mind. One with Dollar Bill Spencer! She is good with Bill. Katie and Bill had the Cinderella relationship and I think they can have that again.

I can’t believe that Rick is actually going to try taking total control of Forrester Creations. Does he think he is that good at getting things past his father or even Ridge? Myah on the other hand is going to be the downfall. I look for her to slip up and say something to someone or do something that alerts people as to what is going on.

Caroline is truly trying to let Rick know that she is trying and that she wants this marriage to work, but Rick is too busy sneaking around with Myah to even care. He has given Myah a new place to live and a place for them to rendezvous during the day. Caroline needs to wake up and realize that Rick is cheating! Rick is doing what she and Ridge NEVER did. Can she not smell Myah on him when he comes around?

There will not be a blog next week due to the Christmas holiday, but I wanted to take a minute and wish all of you happy holidays. Be safe, spend time with your family and enjoy! Be sure to keep watching WDBJ7 to keep up with all the happenings in LA and Genoa City.

WOW! This has been on emotional week on both soaps. I have to say the writers are working overtime this month with their storylines. I wasn’t sure if I should scream, cry, rant or just watch as all the storylines were beginning to take shape. Sure, we all know that this person is going to go after that person or this person will lose their baby at some point, but when the writers get together and make it happen, WOW!

Jack should have known from the beginning that Phyllis was going to find out about Kelly at some point in time. One would think that when she was making it a point to have Kelly help with the wedding that it would have been a sign to him that she had some kind of idea as to what had happened while she was away, but NO he had no clue at all.

Well guess what? He has a clue now! I like how Kelly stood up to Phyllis and let her know that it was not all her in the relationship and that Jack had a hand in moving her into the mansion, etc. Jack walking in when he did was priceless. I honestly could not believe that he left Phyllis to go check on Kelly, but maybe that gave Phyllis some time to cool down.

Summer is right in the middle of all this mess with Jack and Phyllis. I kind of feel for her, but she didn’t want to tell her mom anything that may upset her too much based on the doctor’s and their request.

What was she supposed to do? Summer did exactly what she should have and kept quiet. Phyllis will forgive her just as she has forgiven Jack.

Joe is messing with fire if he thinks Lilly won’t let him know real fast and in a hurry that she is not going to agree to him tearing down the Warehouse District just because he flirts with her. I like how she called him out on it and then filled Cane in on the flirting. I kind of thought Cane would go after Joe, if only to say back off my wife, but didn’t see that happen.

Hillary is not going to be able to stay with Neil much longer. She is having a very hard time dealing with Devon trying to date others to cover their affair. Seriously does anyone really not see how Devon and Hillary look at each other and how Hillary acts when Devon is around? End this affair and fill Neil in on what is going on before it is too late and he figures it out on his own. Either way people are going to be hurt, so they should just nip it in the bud.

Chelsea needs to realize that Billy will never be able to see Adam or Adam’s life in a good way and that if she stays with Billy he will end up saying things that Conner will not understand as he grows up. Gabriel needs to get to Genoa City for keeps so he can take Chelsea away from Billy and be with his family. Sage needs to realize that Adam is not Gabriel and what the two of them had is no more. Adam is for Chelsea and I do not see him detouring from her.

Kevin needs to move on with Mariah. I think they are cute together and they both need someone. Chloe is not coming back to Kevin and no one else is there for Mariah, so why not? They are both free to see whoever they like. They’ve kissed and now they can move onto the next step of the relationship….a cup of hot chocolate.

I almost fell out of my chair when I saw Lauren laughing at Michael. I was like NO she didn’t just laugh at him, but then I saw where the writers were going with the scene. Michael is one strong cookie, but I am glad he finally told Lauren the truth. Now maybe they can move on and get Michael the help he needs before it gets any worse.

Hope, Liam and Wyatt! This love triangle will never end. I hate that Hope fell down the stairs after arguing with Quinn and lost the baby, but she should not have gone outside with her in the first place.

Of course, Quinn should have not been there at all. Had Wyatt done as Hope and Liam had asked several times and gotten the restraining order, this may not have happened. Will Hope leave Wyatt for Liam since there is no baby? Will Liam even take Hope back since he has supposedly fallen in love with Ivy?

Will Wyatt realize that his Mom is a crazy woman and should never be around people? I hope that Hope and Liam do end up together, but don’t want Wyatt hurt either.

Bill and Katie seem to be getting closer these days. I like the two of them together and kind of wish she would untie that engagement ribbon and move on with Bill. After all Ridge has a ton of money and still has not bought Katie a ring. He even has Wyatt and Ivy working at Forrester Creations and has not asked one of them to make her a special ring. What is up with that? How long with Katie wear that ribbon?

Maybe he will buy her a beaded ring for the wedding band when/if they get married.

Wonder what next week holds for all the families of the two best soaps on TV? Should begin to wrap up some of the plots and bring in some new ones. Will Chelsea see Adam in Gabriel’s eyes? Will Adam see Connor and loose it? Will Stitch and Victoria become a happy family? Will Hope leave town with Liam to regroup (come back as another Hope)? What will happen with Deacon? Will he leave with Hope or stay with Quinn? I guess we have to be patient and watch again next week on WDBJ7.

I have to get something about Y&R off of my chest this week. Why would the writers devote an entire episode to Nick and his past life? That was the worst hour of Y&R that I can remember watching for a long time. Whew! Now that I have gotten that off of my chest we can move on.

Who, besides me, thinks that Sage is going to come to Genoa City and become the new love interest for Nick? I saw that coming the minute the dog (Gabriel/Adam’s) came into the cabin that Nick was staying in during his drinking spell.
