The Bold & The Beautiful Update Wednesday 4/4/01
Stephanie demands to see the photographs as Brooke tries to hide
her day planner on her desk. She admits she overheard Brooke and Thorne
talking. As she flips through the pictures she asks where Brooke got them and
she tells her they were taken in San Francisco. Steph accuses her of showing
them to Amber. Brooke admits it. Steph wants to know when Amber saw them and
if Rick knows. She concludes he doesnít because he would have mentioned them
to her. Brooke says they are no longer together and the pictures prove they
shouldnít be. What they prove is Brooke is more interfering than she has ever
been. Brooke quips, Rick broke up with Amber after seeing her kiss Deacon.
Steph believes that was after she saw the photos. She thinks it is awful low
for Brooke to sneak into a hotel room to take the pictures. Brooke says she
didnít take them. Steph says that doesnít matter, it is wrong and Amber and
Rick were so in love and were going to raise their child. Brooke is quick to
point out that is not Rick or Amberís baby, but Deaconís and Beckyís.
reminds her that a deceased Becky would have wanted them to raise that child.
Brooke feels Deacon and Amber have feelings for each other. Steph is sure
Brooke is wrong about that and knows for a fact if Rick knew about the
pictures, he would understand why Amber acted the way she did. Brooke says he
isnít going to know. Steph says he is, she is going to tell him. Brooke
doesnít want her to. She wants Rick to experience life. Steph knows the kids
better than Brooke does and they are ready for this marriage. Brooke doesnít
agree. She begs Stephanie not to interfere with her dealings with her son.
Steph reminds her that Rick is not the only one involved, there is Amber and
the baby and Brooke knew for a long time they intended on getting married.
Brooke feels Amber has told so many lies, especially trying to pass the baby
off as Rickís. Steph thinks sheís paid for her mistakes, but Brooke still
doesnít think she is right for Rick. Steph asks if Brooke feels that way
because of where Amber came from and because she has no money. Well, she
thinks Brooke of all people should appreciate the position Amber is in.
Brooke doesnít want to be compared with Amber. Steph thinks Brooke should
give Amber some credit for changing and growing and wants Brooke to give them
the same respect she gave Brooke and not to interfere. She is sure the
marriage would work. Brooke canít support it and thankfully doesnít have to.
Steph asks if she will tell them about the pictures. No, this is her son and
she wants to protect him. She pleads for Steph not to tell about the
photographs. Please, do it for her family. Stephanie sneaks the pictures and
Bridget stares at the picture of her in Deaconís arms and she wonders what
his name is. She canít wait to see him again. Rick comes home in a mood,
tells her not to ask. He asks about her night. It was awesome. Did Mr.
Wonderful call? No, he doesnít know her name much less her phone number. She
wishes he did. She wonders why he is so down. He tells her about Amber and
him breaking up. They discuss the kiss. Bridget asks who kissed who. It
doesnít matter to Rick, they shouldnít have been kissing at all. She points
out it was just a kiss, they werenít in bed. He thinks Amber has been lying
about being so stressed over there. She knows Amber is only there because of
the baby. He wonders. She canít believe he thinks Amber would be attracted to
this guy. It seemed that way when he was over there. Who knows what else is
going on? She asks if he confronted Amber. Yes, he says, but he didnít
mention her kissing Deacon. Bridget doesnít understand, he broke up his
engagement without knowing what was going on? He thinks he does and canít
believe she is defending Amber. She reminds him that Amber put her whole life
on hold for him and the baby and didnít have to do that. He thinks she may
have wanted Deacon all along. Bridget points out that Amber wouldnít have
gone through the trouble of planning a wedding and putting up with Brooke if
she wanted Deacon. That doesnít even make sense. Like he hasnít put his
hands on another girl since heís been with Amber. Rick looks a bit guilty but
doesnít respond. Talk about a double standard, Bridget quips. He says that is
different. Yeah, right, it is always different for the guy, maybe that is
what he wanted. No, that isnít true and he still loves her, he loves Amber.
Bridget encourages him to reach out to her and find out where her heart it.
He doesnít know if he can handle it. He has to, he put too much in this to
blow it off for one kiss. If this is the love of his life, he has to fight
for her. But, he saw them kiss. She encourages him to give Amber the benefit
of the doubt and let Amber explain. He asks if she thinks he should call her.
If he wants to save his family, he has to call her. She hands him the phone.
Amber, with tears in her eyes and definitely looking sloshed, looks over a
picture of Rick and her and she sings. Deacon walks in and watches, canít
help laughing, takes her drink and puts it on the bar and tells her that is
enough. He tries to get her to believe things will get better. She wants to
know when. He wants her to keep busy and focus on her son, she will get over
this. She slurs, Brooke was right, she didnít have a chance, someone took him
away. Why should he settle for some country hick like her. Deacon doesnít
want to hear that again, Rick is the fool, not her. She reaches for her drink
but he takes it away. He calls Alex and asks her to bring little D down to
the bar for him. Amber asks what he is doing. He wants to put an end to this
once and for all. Deacon sits the baby on a stool near Amber and she bends to
fuss with him. Deacon then talks to Alex about a secret he has planned. He
asks Alex if she can watch the baby for a couple of days. She is more than
happy to watch the baby and tells him to stay a week. He would miss the baby
too much. Amber is passed out. Her phone rings. Deacon tells Alex to let it
ring and he takes Amber upstairs. It was Rick.
