B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Stephanie is surprised by a visit from Taylor. She looks at the family photo that Taylor hands her and says she can look at that and know all is well with the world. Taylor fills her in on Brooke’s drop-in with R.J. Taylor catches Pam and tells her that she knows she pulled that little stunt with the honey and no one at Forrester is taking her excuse as all publicity is good publicity. Stephanie warns Pam not to say a word about what happened at Forrester Creations. She wants her to get this job at Jackie M’s. But Nick does manage to bring up the recent honey incident and asks if Pam had anything to do with that since she is admitting that she isn’t a Miss Donna fan. She claims Eric turned FC into a sleazy massage parlor. Katie tells Bill that he should not underestimate her or Forrester. His cute little stunts are not working. Steffy tells Ridge and Eric that she will help out, but she doesn’t think her being the model is the answer. Ridge tells her that Giovanni is one of the best photographers in the business and he will make her look good. With all watching, Steffy struts her stuff. Bill walks in and proclaims to Eric that he needs to think outside the box. If he wants to boost this company, he will have to do something much bolder than this and fast. Eric says Bill’s sort of tabloid publications are not the publicity that FC needs.

Steffy doesn’t feel comfortable in her princess gown and she doesn’t feel the pictures are coming through for Giovanni. She bolts the room. Bill sees this and says “oops, looks like your plan isn’t going to work.” The once mighty FC is on the slippery slope to ruin or at best bankruptcy. Eric tells him to shut up, not one more word. Nick tells Stephanie to please let them know the next time she wants them to hire one of her relatives. Pam pops back in and says she has one more thing to say. She knows she does not wear designer gowns or talk the lingo, and she has made mistakes, but she is loyal and committed. She knows she would make Jackie M proud. She hugs both Nick and Jackie when they reluctantly say she has the job. Eric tells Bill that he built this company from the ground up with his bare hands, no help…..and he built it not for himself but for his children…..a company with a name they could be proud of…..something bigger than themselves. And it’s been one of the most successful in the world. And now Bill comes in here but he’s wasting his time. He will never have this company. Bill stands toe to toe with Eric and says sure he will. He always gets what he wants. Eric walks out and Katie brushes past Bill as does Donna. Bill taunts Ridge that he is loyal to the end and going down with the ship. Ridge tells him that FC is not for sale and it never will be….and certainly not to him. Bill states that when the creditors come looking to get this albatross off their backs, they won’t be looking for Bill’s character references. Ridge says that is not going to happen. They are not going to fail so just get the hell out of here. Stephanie looks through some piles of paper on her desk and suddenly perks up when she sees a blast from the past….. one is from Whip Jones with a recent photo…..such a handsome face. And he would be perfect for their PR and a perfect distraction for Brooke until Ridge and Taylor get married.
