I don’t know where to begin. These men are unbelievable: Rick, Ridge, and Eric. The women in this town should move somewhere else. Oakdale is calmer than this!
Rick’s past relationships always center on Ridge. Rick’s relationship with Taylor was his way of rebelling against his Mother and Ridge. Rick has always seen Ridge as a person who took his Mother’s love. Rick had a forbidden affair with Phoebe, just to get under Ridge’s skin. Rick hates Ridge and the way he treats his Mother. Rick also enjoys the challenge of older women, like Taylor & Ashley. He had a brief fling with Ashley, and realized he did not want to pursue a real relationship. Rick left Paris, and Ashley with no explanation. When it comes to love, Rick is just as mixed up as his Mother!
Eric wants Stephanie and Donna to live with him? Eric has a lot of nerve. He claims to have forgiven Donna, and wants to move forward with her and have a full life. But meanwhile, because of Stephanie’s current state, he wishes for her to stay in the house. Only a Forrester man would ask such a thing. Of course Stephanie will stay, because she feels her and Eric are growing closer everyday. Donna sees this as a direct insult, because she has been waiting for the day her and Eric could reunite after the fiasco they have endured for the last few months. Although I am not a fan of Stephanie, I think Donna is fighting a losing battle.
I saved the best for last. Ridge is the ultimate playboy. Ridge, Taylor and Brooke are the original love triangle. Ridge can never make up his mind can he? I am excited to see Taylor finally get a backbone. Taylor told Brooke how she is not the same person she was twenty years ago. She informed Brooke she plans to fight for Ridge, and not roll over and allow Brooke to have her way. Normally, I would say this is Brooke’s fight to win, but Taylor said something significant: she told Brooke she has hit bottom, and she has changed. Taylor has been through a metamorphosis; death, addiction, and losing baby Jack. The only question is: will Ridge ever leave Brooke for good?
