B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Taylor rants to Thomas that she is not over-reacting. She sees the pictures floating all over the internet and yet they are saying it is not what it looks like. Ridge chimes in and says they should not have been changing clothes in the same room. That was inappropriate. He asks Brooke to give him a moment with Taylor. Taylor tells Ridge that she can not accept this any longer. It doesn’t matter how famous her son gets or how much money Forrester makes. Ridge answers that Brooke had nothing to do with the photo and he’s going to have to give her a pass on this. He assures her that nothing is going to happen between his son and his wife. Bill tells Liam that he is throwing a huge extravaganza to introduce his son to the world. Liam is appreciative, but doesn’t think it is necessary. Bill tells him this is not the high school prom. Liam will be pulled in many different directions. He discourages Hope being Liam’s date, but if that is the way it has to be, okay. Amber looks Liam up on the internet and tells Oliver that he is loaded and already irresistible. Oliver reminds her that money doesn’t make people happy.

Taylor tells Ridge that she is so disappointed in him, but it doesn’t surprise her since he always overlooks everything Brooke does. She storms out while shouting at Brooke to keep her clothes on around her son. Brooke tells Ridge that he has been put in a terrible position, but Thomas appreciates what he did. She offers again that she needs him to forgive her one more time. Taylor tells Whip that the day did not go well and she doesn’t even know where to begin. Whip wants to know how Ridge reacted. She says just as he always does – he looks the other way when it concerns Brooke. Whip says he feels it – if Brooke and Thomas continue to work together, something more will happen. Thomas tries to convince his mother that nothing will happen between him and Brooke. Amber tells Oliver that she has had a taste of the good life and she wants that again. She was married to Rick and it opened a lot of doors. It can be the same with Liam. Hope tells Liam that she will be honored to be his date. He claims it will be a really big night for him and he wants to share it with her. Brooke suggests to Ridge that if this is a problem she will quit the Taboo campaign. Her marriage to him means more to her than that. He assures her that he loves her and her quitting won’t be necessary. She has the worst luck of anyone he knows, but nothing inappropriate must ever happen again. She cries when he hugs her and says nothing is every going to come between them again. Whip continues to remember Taylor calling out Ridge’s name. He vows that Ridge messed with his marriage, he will mess with his. He is not through with Ridge yet, not by a long shot.
