Stephanie Forrester was a high-class woman
in a high-class neighborhood, which made her cling to her marriage
more than anything. She was aware of Eric’s wandering eye and did
her best to curb that habit. She was attracted to Clarke Garrison
a young, (well…back then) new fashion designer at Forrester and
even considered an affair, but eventually decided against it. She
immediately disliked Brooke Logan, mainly because she was Beth
Logan’s daughter, who had competed with Stephanie for Eric back
when they were in college. She deterred Brooke and Ridge’s
relationship, but shot herself in the foot, because Brooke and
Eric eventually developed feelings for each other.
fought Eric bitterly in their divorce in 1990, but eventually it
happened. She painfully watched Brooke and Eric marry.
Stephanie’s health became an issue after she had a stroke and
temporarily lost her memory. She lived with homeless people but
eventually was reunited with her family. Later she videotaped
Ridge and Brooke have sex in the Forrester lab to help break up
Eric and her. Then, she watched Brooke and Ridge marry, and
forced a smile after that wedding. Stephanie also had something
to say about Eric’s next wife, Sheila Carter. The two never got
along and Sheila even tried to kill Stephanie by drowning her.
Sheila also switched Stephanie’s calcium pills with mercury pills
and drove her to insanity. She recovered though.
Stephanie and Eric were to be remarried, but during the ceremony,
the preacher and Stephanie saw a picture of Eric and Lauren in a
not so appropriate position. Stephanie didn’t go through with the
wedding. After a second stroke, caused by finding out Brooke and
Thorne were a couple, Eric and Stephanie were married though again
she had no recollection of Brooke and Thorne’s relationship.
After Macy was presumed dead, Stephanie found out the truth and
kicked Thorne out of the family. She also tried to abort Morgan’s
baby with Ridge by spiking her tea with a drug. She failed and
didn’t interfere anymore with that. In 2001, Morgan tried to kill
her by drowning her in the bathtub, but Eric rescued her. Later,
she conspired with Massimo Marone, a college boyfriend, to get
Brooke out of the picture. It only worked temporarily, but after
Ridge stayed with Taylor, Stephanie gloated that Brooke was out of
their lives forever.
After Ridge had an accident, Stephanie found
out that Massimo was his biological father. Mass found out, but
Stephanie convinced him to keep it under wraps. After Eric chose
to take Brooke’s side in a family fight, Stephanie left Eric. She
lived with Massimo temporarily, but eventually moved back into the
guest house. Stephanie played an integral part in making sure
Brooke married Whip to protect Bridget from the truth. She and
Bridget helped deliver Brooke’s baby at Big Bear. After that,
Stephanie and Brooke worked as a team to bring up Hope and to
repair Brooke’s character.
Things turned sour after Taylor died.
Brooke’s involvement with Ridge infuriated Stephanie. She
couldn’t stop it though. To make matters worse, Mass told Ridge
that he was his real father, despite Stephanie’s threats about
revealing the truth. Ridge was initially angry with his mother,
but got past it and agreed to keep the truth from Eric. Eric and
Stephanie recently renewed their wedding vows and took a honeymoon
to Australia. Things came to a head when Brooke found out about
Ridge’s paternity. She wanted to spill the beans to Eric, but
eventually Stephanie came clean on her own. Eric promptly left
Stephanie to live in the big house all alone. She recently
invited Bridget to live with her.
