Brooke admits she is concerned about the whole Amber fiasco. Brooke is letting Amber handle it and explains that she didnt even want her to be there (Brooke). Ridge cant believe Amber would leave the company. Brooke explains the position she is in and laments it is a sad situation. A mistake made a long time ago is biting her on the butt now. Ridge wonders if they are still talking about Amber here. Brooke understands if Ridge cant forgive her, but is happy that Ridge is considering it. When Ridge becomes Mr. Shifty-eyes, Brooke wonders if he is even considering it. Brooke assures Ridge that she can wait for him. Ridge admits he has a lot on his mind, but again doesnt want to talk about it. Brooke goes on this long speech about her actions and how she is a changed woman. She feels she is a good person in the end and she deserves to be happy with or without Ridge. She seems to believe fate has nothing to do with these things anymore. She also thinks Ridge will be proud of her one day. Ridge doesnt say much, but is happy he has someone he can count on, but Im not sure if hes talking about Brooke.
Megan joins the Forrester group in the press conference room. They all suggest that Amber handle it another way. Amber wants to distance herself even more from the company and wants to do the conference elsewhere. The whole family reminds her that they support her and want the press to know it. The reporters come in and as soon as Amber stands up, the cameras begin shuttering over and over. Amber winces in emotional pain. Amber reintroduces herself and wants to make her announcement, but is interrupted by questions from reporters. They are regarding the video and if Forrester will sue. Amber declines to answers those questions for now and reiterates she wants to get her announcement out first and then take questions. Amber thanks her family for all their support. Amber finally admits that she is leaving Forrester Creations. The crowd is aghast and begins to take many photos. Amber quiets everyone down. Questions start flying then. Did the Forresters ask Amber to leave? Amber assures them it was her decision alone. She also explains the Ambrosia line will cease to exist. Rick then makes a statement that he and the rest of the family are in full support of Amber. He helps Amber offstage when one reporter asks if she did the video for profit. Amber becomes angry and moves back to the podium and shouts that the video is a tragedy. A young girl (her) was exploited and taken advantage of and the video should have never been released. Suddenly, a voice in the background claims that the girl in the video wasnt Amber. We see an Amber look alike in the audience. Its more of the trashy version of Amber with far too much makeup and a nose ring. Amber is confused and then stunned/scared by what she sees. The reporters all gasp at the woman and so does the Forrester family. The girl, labeled as Ambers Twin by the closed captioning says that she was the one who did the video, not Amber. The show dramatically ends as I roll my eyes. Eh, theres a chance this storyline could be interesting.
See ya tomorrow!
