There was something Ridge said the other day... (General Discussion)

...and I thought it was so cold and mean:

"...at the end of the day, we SELL WOMEN'S CLOTHING - we don't CODDLE young women who feel they've been passed over!"

If you were Brooke, how would you have reacted to that statement - especially after Ridge had just admitted that STEFFY needed HER line more than HOPE needed Hope For The Future?

Choosing The Intimates Collection may have been a good business decision - but would Ridge have done any different if he thought it would tank right out of the gate? And if it were PHOEBE and not Hope, would he have divided the money between the two lines?

As far as I'M concerned, this was Ridge's way of punishing Hope for not bowing out of the competition for LIAM SPENCER - and the only "hard" part of the decision was knowing that he'd have to deal with BROOKE at the end of the day.

Decisions done..Hope and Brooke sour grapes

It's not "sour grapes" if Ridge had no intention of choosing Hope over Steffy.

Hope never had a chance.

IMHO it is sour grapes if both were pretty sure Ridge would pick his own daughter over Brooke's daughter. And Ridge had the numbers to back it up so if he can stick it to Hope too for stealing Liam, then no one can gripe. Accept it and move on.

Brooke didn't say NEARLY enough to Steffy.

Ridge is correct. Brooke babies Hope, she is not allowing her to be a strong women. Hope still acts like a pouty teenager. It's ok for Brooke and Hope to bash Steffy every chance they get. Hope has not even been that long. If Brooke were a good mother, she would tell Hope to get on her big panties and make HFTF the best that it can be instead we get day after day of "poor me" from Hope, how everything always so unfair for Hope . Grow up Hope. Viewers compare Steffy to Brooke and Hope to Taylor. At least Taylor was a strong, beautiful, successful women who didn't run around telling anyone that will listen that how she is wronged and pouting every day. Taylor -Brooke - and Ridge also had other love interests and SL's. Hope is a one dimensional character.

Taylor is STILL saying she was wronged by the Logans. She refuses for her kids to be done the same way. Steffy went to Ridge and said plain as day I need this more. TK said it wasn't all business related that he chose Steffy. If he would've just chose Steffy instead of pitting the girls against each other I would have understood it more. There was no meetings were even needed!!!

If Ridge were a good father, he would tell Steffy to move on from Liam who already told Ride he is IN LOVE with Hope. Steffy needs to put on her big girl panties (not the nasty stuff she had on the other day) and make a line that actually has value. Grow up Steffy. Take that picture off the wall and find your own man instead of trying to take everyone else's. Don't be a nasty shrew like your mother and complain about a man that was never yours to begin with.

So apparently, in order for Ridge to PROVE his decision wasn't biased, he HAD to have chosen hftf, regardless if it's never outsold the intimates line and Hope had overextended the line with her fabric choices. :lol

they should have had Eric make the decision. But I know, having Ridge do it was SL driven so we can give Hope something to do... whine and out some more.

It just boggles the mind that Ridge hasn't turned Brooke's contrived outrage back on her. As a business woman, SHOW him how it makes financial sense to put resources into a line that has never outsold the intimates. If the roles were reversed, Brooke would argue a feel good message doesn't necessarily translate into $$$, and Ridge should go with the numbers.

Hope's line did out sell Steffy's Intimates line though. They didn't like her line and she refused to change it. Brooke's Bedroom is and will always be number one seller for FC for those years. Now days even Walmart sales underware so I'm not seeing the big deal of having to sell it. Be special and stand out Steffy needs to come up with an idea that no other fashion house or retail store does lol.

What does Steffy do beside sleeping her way into the Spencer family tree? Oh yeah bullying and manipulating other women. :puke

If the thought it would tank then it would not have been a good business decision. If it was Phoebe and Staffy they would probably be working together anyway. Do you really think that Brooke would have done anything different? Absolutely not, she wouldn't have even thought of business because she has to coddle Hope for the way she was conceived.
