B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Ridge tells Brooke that this is not the time to be interfering with Liam and Steffy’s marriage. Steffy needs to feel at ease. Amber gushes to Rick that his line is already in production; they are on the way up. He will be running the company soon. And no one has to know that she is the draftsman that polished the designs for him. Yet Ridge thinks he knows already that it is Amber. Brooke doesn’t think he would have anything to do with her again. Pam introduces Tiffany Coyne to Rick and then to Ridge and Brooke. Rick wants to use Tiffany and other top runway models for his new line. She’s agreeable but has to get back to the studio taping. She invites Pam to come by for a taping when she hears what a fan she is of the show and Wayne Brady. Ridge doesn’t like the fact that Rick is going over his head without consulting him to get everything his way. He has a real bad feeling about this. Amber tells Rick that he has a lot of beautiful women around him, but she’s gonna make him forget all of them……she plants a big kiss on him.

Jackie tells Nick that she has some serious doubts about Pam continuing their arrangement. The sales are skyrocketing, but that might not last long without Pam getting more designs. When Pam confronts Nick she says there is a way he can make it up to her for seeing so much of Donna…..he can come with her to a taping of Let’s Make a Deal. He hates to disappoint her, but that would mean they would be seen together and they can’t risk that. She reminds him they will be in crazy costumes so no one is likely to know. Finally he gives in and agrees. She cautions him not to get jealous if she gets flirty with Wayne Brady. Brooke says goodbye to Donna and heads straight to Rick’s office where she finds Amber. She rants that she can’t believe this is who is helping him with the designs; Ridge was right after all. Despite all Amber has done that he would now confide and rely on her. Rick says he will tell the others all in good time but for now it needs to be their secret. He begs his mother to keep this from Ridge.
