The Bold and the Beautiful: August 27 Live Thoughts
The Bold and the Beautiful: August 27 Live Thoughts
Ridge and Brooke open today's episode of The Bold and the Beautiful.  He has come over to ask her why she wasn't at the concert.  She accuses him of being under his mother's thumb.  That's pretty true.  What's the deal with Brooke's security system?  Isn't the point of having an alarm system and a security guard so that people can't come in?

After the credits, we cut back to the concert.  It's Rick and Phoebe who are singing!  They are pretty good actually, but I'm sure Randy would say that Phoebe is a bit "pitchy," dog.  Apparently, Phoebe was just kidding herself about not loving Rick anymore because as soon as they are done with their duet, they kiss passionately on the stage.

Donna barges into Stephanie's house and exposits that Stephanie made Ridge file for full custody of the children.  Donna is furious that Stephanie is apparently trying to steal Brooke's kids away from her.

After the break, Phoebe and Rick stumble home, chased by reporters all the way from the concert venue.  Phoebe admits that she couldn't let such a great man walk away from her.  They sit cozily by the fire and talk about their feelings for each other.  They resolve to make it work this time as the camera's focus shifts from them to the fire.  We know what that means!!

Meanwhile, Donna wants to make peace with the Stephanie and the Forresters for the sake of the children.  Stephanie laughs in her face.

Phoebe and Rick are still kissing on the couch when the phone rings.  Rick pulls away and says, "I can't, I can't.  Because I love you so much.  I want to make love to you."  Um, that doesn't make sense, but Phoebe doesn't seem to sweat the contradiction in his words.

Donna and Stephanie are still at it, backed by their respective men.  It is like the Montagues and the Capulets on The Bold and the Beautiful today, Donna and Stephanie representing the Logans and the Forresters, respectively.  Donna says that the only way they can bring peace between the two families is if everyone gets behind Donna and Thorne's marriage.  Donna says that Brooke as agreed to be her matron of honor, and if only Stephanie supports them too, there will be peace.  But Stephanie is adamant.  She will not sit and watch Donna marry her son.

Back at Brooke's.  Brooke says that Stephanie couldn't have done all that she has without Ridge's help.  She begs him to tear up the custody request, but he retorts by asking her who the man in the photograph is.  He says that it killed him to sign the paper, but he had no choice because of her unstable behavior.  Brooke says that men just take what they want, whenever they want.  She screams for him to leave, but he puts his arms around her to calm her down.  Eventually, she does calm down and whispers dramatically that she was raped.  Ridge closes today's episode of The Bold and the Beautiful with a look of shock.  While I'm glad that Brooke is finally telling the truth about her horrifying night, I really wish she had decided to let Bridge collect evidence of the rape first.
