So Hope thinks it’s okay as long as Ridge doesn’t know (General)

Yesterday she was apologetic about posting the photo and was seemingly concerned she caused a problem for her mother and Ridge because of the photo. But then a bit later she called her daddy to tell him Ridge was on a plane and therefore the coast was clear for him to come and visit her…and thereby Brooke…on Brooke’s property despite Brooke’s telling both of them Deacon is no longer welcome there.

I thought Hope was a person of such high moral standards. Apparently she’s of the “if nobody sees or finds out then it doesn’t count” school of thought. She was so nonchalant and actually I thought flippant when Deacon arrived as if she had done nothing wrong. Hope SAYS she wants her mother to be with Ridge since that is what Brooke wants…but it’s pretty clear she doesn’t mean that. Passive aggressive.

I’m not concerned here about the Ridge-Taylor kiss or all of Ridge’s many faults. The kiss is not yet on the table but it soon will be. And Ridge’s faults don’t play into this because then Hope would be saying two wrongs make a right…and that proves my point…hat Hope seems to think she has done nothing wrong. I’m just surprised she thinks sneaking is a fine way to act.

Hope TALKS a lot about her morals and values but her ACTS show who she really is

She’s always been sneaky … remember how she wormed her way in FC, using her mother and aunt position, behind Ridge s back, KNOWING Steffy wouldn’t like it but playing the poor hurt step sister … I do.
Just like she kept the HFTF self glorifying press conférences while banging Steffy s husband … until someone called her about being an hypocrite and a fraud …
What about sending Rick to extort Steffy’s signature on the annulment papers ?
What about pretending to be there for Liam as a friend ?

She s essentially a weak COWARD. Sneaky, passive agressive, unable to fight her battles openly

So Hope thinks it’s okay as long as Ridge doesn’t know

She didn't KNOW that Steffy wouldn't like it. She truly believed Steffy would be happy too about HFTF's success since this meant even more profit for FC. She was a naive 17-year-old girl who had no idea that her stepsister Steffy, who she had always looked up to, could be that selfish and envious.

And she never wormed her way into FC in the first place. All she ever asked for was an internship for a few weeks before graduating from high school and going to college on the East Coast. She never felt entitled to anything else but that internship, she just happened to be given a chance by her aunt Katie that no intern would ever refuse. Katie was the one with ulterior motives in this storyline, not Hope. Katie was the one who used Hope (to get back at Steffy for pursuing Bill), not the other way round. And except for Katie's initial offer, nothing happened behind Ridge's back. Ridge was thrilled about having Hope stay at FC beyond her internship and even assigned Steffy to do PR for HFTF instead of having her continue her own line.

Just because Steffy thought Hope was a sneaky person who was trying to take over Phoebe's place in the company and take everything else away from her too, including her father, doesn't mean there was any truth to her claims. It was clearly shown on screen that Hope never had any intention to hurt Steffy but was even hoping that working together on HFTF would make them grow closer as sisters. She was simply too naive to see why Steffy would feel threatened by her.

Yes she did before she started the internship
She mentionned Steffy wouldn’t like it

HOPE was the one envious… she wanted to work at FC and Ridge to play her dad, to marry at the FORRESTER mansion … she’s a Forrester parasite like her mom

Hope was handed a job she didn’t deserve and wasn’t smart enough to realise she didn’t come with the concept …

Hope GLOATED she had Ridge at home …

I don’t have the patience to search for the transcript showing Hope was aware Steffy wouldn’t be happy to see her at FC from the start. That’s why in my opinion SHE started the war then she couldn’t bear the fire she created
Hope tried to make Ridge choose her side … having the audacity to ask Ridge to design her dress after she ruined Steffy’s marriage … welll too bad … Ridge isn’t your father
Hope isn’t Steffy s sister. She’s a Forrester wannabe only there bc her mother boinked the FC CEO Eric or Rudge no matter to her

So Hope thinks it’s okay as long as Ridge doesn’t know

I honestly don't remember that, I will try to look it up. But even if she already suspected that Steffy wouldn't like it, this doesn't make her sneaky or means she wormed her way into a company founded by the family of the man she had been calling dad for years and of her three siblings. Everyone in the family but Steffy loved having her there. Plus, it's not like Steffy was already CEO at that time and Hope begged a lower ranked executive to hire her behind Steffy's back. She got that internship fair and square.

So the fact that an internship at FC meant she could work side by side with her mom, her dad, her brother and her aunts and learn a lot about fashion had nothing to do with her desire to get that internship, it was all about wanting to stick it to Steffy because she was envious of her? Seriously? Nothing in the narrative ever suggested anything like that. It's just a myth that was made up to justify Steffy's bullying of Hope in that storyline.

Treating Hope like a daughter and having her call him dad was Ridge's own decision when Hope was still a toddler! So how could Hope have been envious and wanted Ridge to play her dad when he had already been her dad for more than a decade before she even started working at FC? Steffy was clearly the envious one in this storyline, unable to accept that Hope had her own line while she didn't, that Hope had a boyfriend while she didn't, that she was the one who had to follow Hope's orders while doing PR for HFTF instead of being the one to order Hope around and that she could only spend time with her dad at work while Hope could see him at home and at work.
I can even understand that Steffy felt treated unfairly. But life isn't always fair, and being treated unfairly doesn't give you a free pass to bully the person that has everything you want for yourself, especially when that person was just lucky to be in the right place at the right time and never did anything underhanded to get there.

And Hope wanting to get married in the Forrester mansion has nothing to do with the storyline in 2010 that my post was about.

She was naive. But if she wasn't bright and had no brain, she wouldn't have got that scholarship for an Ivy League college on the East Coast. And if she wasn't talented, HFTF would never have created so much buzz. Not everyone could successfully have pulled off the job of a spokesmodel just like that, without any kind of experience, especially when she hadn't even come up with the concept herself. And if you do such a good job, then you fully deserve that position too, even without any prior achievements.


Hope GLOATED she had Ridge at home …

Never happened. All she did was ask Steffy if she was really that jealous that "dad chose my family over yours" (meaning Brooke over Taylor, not herself over Steffy) after Steffy had just played a mean girl prank on her for no apparent reason. There was no gloating at all. She even expressed empathy in the next sentence by telling Steffy "I know it hurts, okay?". But Steffy only responded by tearing into her for calling Ridge dad.


I don’t have the patience to search for the transcript showing Hope was aware Steffy wouldn’t be happy to see her at FC from the start. That’s why in my opinion SHE started the war then she couldn’t bear the fire she created

I don't think the mere fact that Hope wanted that internship even though she knew her stepsister wouldn't be happy about it meant she was starting a war. On the contrary, she saw this as a chance to prove herself to Steffy and improve their relationship. No one knew how deep Steffy's issues really were. There was every reason to believe she would deal with her new coworker professionally like the adult she was instead of acting like a high-school girl even younger than Hope.


Hope isn’t Steffy s sister. She’s a Forrester wannabe only there bc her mother boinked the FC CEO Eric or Rudge no matter to her

Hope and Steffy are stepsisters who also share a biological brother. They were even raised in the same household for years. They are family, no matter how much you hate that fact.
And Brooke already had Forrester kids before Hope was born, so even if Brooke had never been with another Forrester in Hope's life, Hope would still have a connection to this family.

So Hope thinks it’s okay as long as Ridge doesn’t know

You don’t have to accept unfairness. And again Hope IMO started the provocation and couldn’t handle the result

The line has success bc of the designs not bc Hope bragged she was perfect and promote virginity until marriage while banging Steffy’s husband popping pills to proceed

NO. The Twins were gone to boarding school the only year Bridge were married and living together then Taylor returned. Before that Bridge were on and off and not living together. Steffy and Hope didn’t live as sisters in their youth.

And Brooke already had Forrester kids before Hope was born, so even if Brooke had never been with another Forrester in Hope's life, Hope would still have a connection to this family.

A connection isn’t being family
Hope wanted to be equal to Steffy in the Forrester family. She’s not.

The first thing Taylor did when she got back after being tired of hanging around Omar was send the kids off to boarding school in Europe.

Nope. They were already there when Taylor returned, not living with Bridge

They were there with Brooke and Ridge. They even told Brooke that they loved her. Brooke left with a small RJ and Hope. Shortly after they were shipped off.

So Hope thinks it’s okay as long as Ridge doesn’t know

I honestly don't remember that, I will try to look it up. But even if she already suspected that Steffy wouldn't like it, this doesn't make her sneaky or means she wormed her way into a company founded by the family of the man she had been calling dad for years and of her three siblings. Everyone in the family but Steffy loved having her there. Plus, it's not like Steffy was already CEO at that time and Hope begged a lower ranked executive to hire her behind Steffy's back. She got that internship fair and square.

If Hope had been upfront and ask Ridge first I would agree.
She didn’t want to take the risk Ridge would ask Steffy if it bother her

So the fact that an internship at FC meant she could work side by side with her mom, her dad, her brother and her aunts and learn a lot about fashion had nothing to do with her desire to get that internship, it was all about wanting to stick it to Steffy because she was envious of her? Seriously? Nothing in the narrative ever suggested anything like that. It's just a myth that was made up to justify Steffy's bullying of Hope in that storyline.
Treating Hope like a daughter and having her call him dad was Ridge's own decision when Hope was still a toddler! So how could Hope have been envious and wanted Ridge to play her dad when he had already been her dad for more than a decade before she even started working at FC? Steffy was clearly the envious one in this storyline, unable to accept that Hope had her own line while she didn't, that Hope had a boyfriend while she didn't, that she was the one who had to follow Hope's orders while doing PR for HFTF instead of being the one to order Hope around and that she could only spend time with her dad at work while Hope could see him at home and at work.
I can even understand that Steffy felt treated unfairly. But life isn't always fair, and being treated unfairly doesn't give you a free pass to bully the person that has everything you want for yourself, especially when that person was just lucky to be in the right place at the right time and never did anything underhanded to get there.

You don’t have to accept unfairness. And again Hope IMO started the provocation and couldn’t handle the result

And Hope wanting to get married in the Forrester mansion has nothing to do with the storyline in 2010 that my post was about.

I see the big picture : Hope wanted to be equal to Steffy in the family. She’s not. She’s an in law.

Hope was handed a job she didn’t deserve and wasn’t smart enough to realise she didn’t come with the concept …
I like bright witty people She’s not
No education no talent no brain no guts
Typically the kind of people I despise

She was naive. But if she wasn't bright and had no brain, she wouldn't have got that scholarship for an Ivy League college on the East Coast. And if she wasn't talented, HFTF would never have created so much buzz. Not everyone could successfully have pulled off the job of a spokesmodel just like that, without any kind of experience, especially when she hadn't even come up with the concept herself. And if you do such a good job, then you fully deserve that position too, even without any prior achievements.

Debatable … Hope later almost drive the line to the ground. Only Caroline’s talent save it.
The line has success bc of the designs not bc Hope bragged she was perfect and promote virginity until marriage while banging Steffy’s husband popping pills to proceed
She then became a PR nightmare

Hope GLOATED she had Ridge at home …

Never happened. All she did was ask Steffy if she was really that jealous that "dad chose my family over yours" (meaning Brooke over Taylor, not herself over Steffy) after Steffy had just played a mean girl prank on her for no apparent reason. There was no gloating at all. She even expressed empathy in the next sentence by telling Steffy "I know it hurts, okay?". But Steffy only responded by tearing into her for calling Ridge dad.

What a crock … this was obviously words to HURT and. phony concern

I don't think the mere fact that Hope wanted that internship even though she knew her stepsister wouldn't be happy about it meant she was starting a war. On the contrary, she saw this as a chance to prove herself to Steffy and improve their relationship. No one knew how deep Steffy's issues really were. There was every reason to believe she would deal with her new coworker professionally like the adult she was instead of acting like a high-school girl even younger than Hope.

Still … Hope knew Steffy wouldn’t like it so too bad if she couldn’t stand the effects

Hope and Steffy are stepsisters who also share a biological brother. They were even raised in the same household for years. They are family, no matter how much you hate that fact.

Yes the twins were home for the HOLIDAYS.
The girls were already in boarding school in Europe not living with Bridge Hope and RJ.

Great post. That story was mainly about Katie sticking it to Steffy for going after her husband. Hope was not jealous of Steffy. It was the other way around. I remember scenes of Steffy nastily going after Hope, telling her that she wasn't part of the family and Ridge was not her father. Then she systematically went after Hope's boyfriends. Who could forget "Pretend I'm Hope"? Steffy was consumed with jealousy of Hope.

You can’t be jealous of someone you despise and consider no more than a mosquito or a cockroach you can’t be rid of.
Just like Stephanie was never jealous of Brooke, a woman she considered was no better than a streetwalker … some are attractive and get men’s attention too … You only can be envious of people you look up too
Steffy just wanted to teach Hope a lesson after she wormed her way in FC ans gloated she had Steffy s father full time … until HE too put her in her place

Steffy was clearly the envious one in this storyline, unable to accept that Hope had her own line while she didn't, that Hope had a boyfriend while she didn't, that she was the one who had to follow Hope's orders while doing PR for HFTF instead of being the one to order Hope around and that she could only spend time with her dad at work while Hope could see him at home and at work.
I can even understand that Steffy felt treated unfairly. But life isn't always fair, and being treated unfairly doesn't give you a free pass to bully the person that has everything you want for yourself, especially when that person was just lucky to be in the right place at the right time and never did anything underhanded to get there.
And Hope wanting to get married in the Forrester mansion has nothing to do with the storyline in 2010 that my post was about.

Hope was handed a job she didn’t deserve and wasn’t smart enough to realise she didn’t come with the concept …
I like bright witty people She’s not
No education no talent no brain no guts
Typically the kind of people I despise

She was naive. But if she wasn't bright and had no brain, she wouldn't have got that scholarship for an Ivy League college on the East Coast. And if she wasn't talented, HFTF would never have created so much buzz. Not everyone could successfully have pulled off the job of a spokesmodel just like that, without any kind of experience, especially when she hadn't even come up with the concept herself. And if you do such a good job, then you fully deserve that position too, even without any prior achievements.

Hope GLOATED she had Ridge at home …

Never happened. All she did was ask Steffy if she was really that jealous that "dad chose my family over yours" (meaning Brooke over Taylor, not herself over Steffy) after Steffy had just played a mean girl prank on her for no apparent reason. There was no gloating at all. She even expressed empathy in the next sentence by telling Steffy "I know it hurts, okay?". But Steffy only responded by tearing into her for calling Ridge dad.

I don’t have the patience to search for the transcript showing Hope was aware Steffy wouldn’t be happy to see her at FC from the start. That’s why in my opinion SHE started the war then she couldn’t bear the fire she created

I don't think the mere fact that Hope wanted that internship even though she knew her stepsister wouldn't be happy about it meant she was starting a war. On the contrary, she saw this as a chance to prove herself to Steffy and improve their relationship. No one knew how deep Steffy's issues really were. There was every reason to believe she would deal with her new coworker professionally like the adult she was instead of acting like a high-school girl even younger than Hope.

Hope isn’t Steffy s sister. She’s a Forrester wannabe only there bc her mother boinked the FC CEO Eric or Rudge

Hope and Steffy are stepsisters who also share a biological brother. They were even raised in the same household for years. They are family, no matter how much you hate that fact.
And Brooke already had Forrester kids before Hope was born, so even if Brooke had never been with another Forrester in Hope's life, Hope would still have a connection to this family.

Great post. That story was mainly about Katie sticking it to Steffy for going after her husband. Hope was not jealous of Steffy.

Hope was the mean step sister trying to take a place she didn’t deserve in the Forrester family, Steffys place
Just like Brooke was the mean step mother hating her husband s children
FC isn’t a Logan legacy but Forrester and Douglas’

It was the other way around. I remember scenes of Steffy nastily going after Hope, telling her that she wasn't part of the family and Ridge was not her father.

Wish is just the truth. The twiit wanted to be Steffy’s equal in the Forrester family and she’s NOT

Then she systematically went after Hope's boyfriends. Who could forget "Pretend I'm Hope"? Steffy was consumed with jealousy of Hope.

As If Of she wanted to be the SFTV and bartender s child when she was a Forrester princess … funny
You can’t be jealous of someone you despise and consider no more than a mosquito or a cockroach you can’t be rid of.
Just like Stephanie was never jealous of Brooke, a woman she considered was no better than a streetwalker … some are attractive and get men’s attention too … You only can be envious of people you look up too
Steffy just wanted to teach Hope a lesson after she wormed her way in FC ans gloated she had Steffy s father full time … until HE too put her in her place


Hope doesn't have a mean bone in her body. Steffy, on the other hand, is a shrieking shrew who has deliberately gone after other women's men, often using her body and dirty manipulations and who will stop at nothing to get what she wants, no matter who gets hurt.

"Pretend I'm Hope" is all I'll ever need to hear regarding the question of who is jealous of who.


And "what about meeeeee" when Ridge told her he's staying with Brooke and RJ and Hope.

That's what drives everything Steffy does. How it can be good for her while not giving a crap about anyone else.

Yesterday she was apologetic about posting the photo and was seemingly concerned she caused a problem for her mother and Ridge because of the photo. But then a bit later she called her daddy to tell him Ridge was on a plane and therefore the coast was clear for him to come and visit her…and thereby Brooke…on Brooke’s property despite Brooke’s telling both of them Deacon is no longer welcome there.

I thought Hope was a person of such high moral standards. Apparently she’s of the “if nobody sees or finds out then it doesn’t count” school of thought. She was so nonchalant and actually I thought flippant when Deacon arrived as if she had done nothing wrong. Hope SAYS she wants her mother to be with Ridge since that is what Brooke wants…but it’s pretty clear she doesn’t mean that. Passive aggressive.

I’m not concerned here about the Ridge-Taylor kiss or all of Ridge’s many faults. The kiss is not yet on the table but it soon will be. And Ridge’s faults don’t play into this because then Hope would be saying two wrongs make a right…and that proves my point…hat Hope seems to think she has done nothing wrong. I’m just surprised she thinks sneaking is a fine way to act.

The writing for Hope is all over the place right now. One day she's over the moon that Bridge are back together and the next day she's totally careless, back to doing exactly the things that caused the problems in Bridge's marriage in the first place. But I'm afraid she will soon stop supporting Bridge anyway when the custody battle starts. Because spoilers already say that Deacon will be there for Hope while Thomas receives support from his family. So if Ridge is fully supporting the idea that Douglas should be back with Thomas, I don't think Hope will want him with her mom anymore.

I kind of agree with you, but I believe Hope is still a person of integrity and was written out of character. We know these writers aren't the best. They have some of the characters all over the place. I have other opinions, but I think you only want to discuss Hope here, so will respect that and make a new thread. But yes, in today's show, I was surprised at Hope.

Grannysmith, 8/5/2022, 7:35PM (6 days ago) @BellaSole

Agree…it almost seems as if the writers are opening the door to say at this stage in her life, Hope is showing some inherited Deacon traits! Maybe they want to spice her up and make her less angelic, so to speak…not that she was ever an angel but she always seemed to be …most of the time…ethical. At times no but everybody’s human! This little sneaky streak, though, is out of character. If you want to do something just do it…don’t sneak…own it!

Please Brooke is constantly rewarded for her misdeeds while her victims or the messengers pay.
Exemple : She and Bill kiss : only Katie Bill (+ their son) and Quinn paid … only they suffer long lasting effects.

Hope is also adult enough to buy her own home where no one else besides Liam can dictate who comes and goes there. If she wants to live rent free on Mommy's property then she needs to follow her mother's rules and get over herself.

This whole thing is so contrived. Why can't Hope go to Deacon's apartment or meet him at that new Seafood restaurant? OR better yet, let Hope get her own place to live.
I think Ridge forbidding Deacon from coming to the cabin is ridiculous. Still, Brooke agreed to it, and Deacon does have issues with boundaries.

That's how I feel. I wish Hope WAS trying to get her mom to see she's better off without that caveman Ridge. But she's been their biggest cheerleader. She's not doing anything near what the Tridge brats are doing. They're actively conspiring to break them up.

It was Brooke’s decision…not Hope’s. To accept and want Ridge back…to tell her and Deacon they cannot meet on her property. Hope completely disregarded her mother’s feelings and her mothers demand basically – it wasn’t a request. I’m sure Hope thinks she knows what’s best for her mother and well she might but Brooke has remained sober and vital and capable of making her own decisions. I do not think it was Hope’s right to disregard what her mother wants. But if that’s what she’s going to do, then don’t be a sneak about it. Tell your mother that you called daddy and told him Ridge is on a plane so he can come over now to play with her and Brooke. Just tell your mother that if you’re so sure what you did is right. I really don’t like sneakiness. Let alone that Hope seems to think it’s just fine and so does Deacon if they do this - break Brooke’s word to Ridge -voluntarily decided by Brooke -no matter how ill advised or unnecessary it was… as long as they do it behind Ridge’s back. They thought they were being cute but instead they were being insulting and disrespectful to Brooke. Let Brooke come to her own decisions…about her own property…and her own relationships.

Yes, I think Hope could be more forceful with Deacon. Although, as a viewer that can't stand Ridge, I kinda love it that she's not. :-D


We’ll Hope probably secretly likes her parents interacting. The Tots sure do.

I'm sure she does. And it would be normal. She isn't scheming and trying to break them up, though, like Steffy and Thomas are doing with Bridge.

Yesterday she was apologetic about posting the photo and was seemingly concerned she caused a problem for her mother and Ridge because of the photo. But then a bit later she called her daddy to tell him Ridge was on a plane and therefore the coast was clear for him to come and visit her…and thereby Brooke…on Brooke’s property despite Brooke’s telling both of them Deacon is no longer welcome there.

I thought Hope was a person of such high moral standards. Apparently she’s of the “if nobody sees or finds out then it doesn’t count” school of thought. She was so nonchalant and actually I thought flippant when Deacon arrived as if she had done nothing wrong. Hope SAYS she wants her mother to be with Ridge since that is what Brooke wants…but it’s pretty clear she doesn’t mean that. Passive aggressive.

I’m not concerned here about the Ridge-Taylor kiss or all of Ridge’s many faults. The kiss is not yet on the table but it soon will be. And Ridge’s faults don’t play into this because then Hope would be saying two wrongs make a right…and that proves my point…hat Hope seems to think she has done nothing wrong. I’m just surprised she thinks sneaking is a fine way to act.


When did Hope tell Deacon that Ridge was on a plane and so Deacon could come by and visit Hope at Brooke's house? Which episode was that? I missed it.


I don't remember that either. Deacon did say that he heard from Hope that Ridge was out of the country but nothing about Hope telling him it was safe to come over.

hiding Ridge s phone for 30 minutes ? Not allowing Brooke in Steffy s house after Ridge walked on Brooke

They constantly use emotional abuse on their loser dad...always we need you...grown A adults acting like 3 year olds...saying Brooke always hurt you but failing to say that they were always the reason that Brooke and ridge actually fight...they were ALL doing good until quackadoddle slithered back in Town then all the emotional beating of ridge started on a DAILY basis...WHY so much emphasis placed on deacon of all people when Brooke has had NO interest in him since before Hope was born...

Getting a FC employee to hack into Brooke's private home security system isn't scheming? Of course it is. Hiding a phone and blocking Brooke from seeing her husband is also scheming and manipulating.

Investing to get proofs? No, it's SCHEMING because they hacked into Brooke's home security system without Brooke's promission. Bet if someone hacks into Steffy's security footage without Steffy's knowledge, it would be considered a scheme. LOL. It's illegal what Steffy/Thomas did to obtain those footages, otherwise, everyone can just go hack into whoever's private security system without approval.

Bell writes the storylines, I'm going to go with the spoilers he puts out. He also has TK saying that he wants to be married to Brooke and that it's her choice to stay married to him. The script stated Ridge wanted to be Hope's father and he wanted to design her wedding dress even after that Aspen wedding. Ridge and Steffy are the CEO and they think Hope does a wonderful job at the company. The fact that a college drop out is running a company says that you don't have to be college educated. The most wonderful thing about Stephanie Forrester was the fact she knew class came from within each person regardless of money level, education, or gender and she was classy enough to treated them alike even the homeless.

Hope had no good reason to invite Deacon to FC, the business that Ridge owns and to take a picture of him standing at the CEO desk. She could have shown him the pictures on her computer from anywhere else but for some reason chooses to have Deacon show up at places where she knows he would not be wanted and could cause trouble....

Why would Ridge want Deacon wandering around his business if he doesn't want him in his home with Brooke? And Hope plays the clueless jerk feigning innocence.

From his reaction you would had thought they were at Brooke's house lazing at the pool or something with just Brook and deacon hugging or something...


Hope had no good reason to invite Deacon to FC, the business that Ridge owns and to take a picture of him standing at the CEO desk. She could have shown him the pictures on her computer from anywhere else but for some reason chooses to have Deacon show up at places where she knows he would not be wanted and could cause trouble.... Brooke's house and FC. I think she wants Bridge to split up.


Ridge wanted Deacon banned from Brooke's property which Brooke agreed. I don't recalled Ridge ever said Deacon is banned from FC building and isn't allowed to visit Hope's workplace.


He didn't say it but Hope is a total and complete idiot thinking that a picture of Deacon in HIS office at HIS desk with HIS wife would not upset Ridge. Why would Ridge want Deacon wandering around his business if he doesn't want him in his home with Brooke? And Hope plays the clueless jerk feigning innocence. That claim that she wanted to celebrate SINN's reunion with a family photo was as phony as a three dollar bill. lol


Nah..if Quarter can celebrate Sinn's reunion, so can Hope. :-P

Quarter just wanted an excuse to take the day off and stay in bed.

I didn't mind the Quarter scenes at all. Their excuse was as phony as Hope's but much more interesting to watch. :cool

Nothing interesting about a shallow couple having sex all day long..it's boring and predictable. FF material for me. :sleep
I'll take Hope over Quarter anytime, any day.

And if Ridge can bring Taylor to his home so Steffy can celebrate, Hope should be able to.

Heck I'm a Brooke fan and I want them to break up but I want Brooke to be the one to end it....its not her fault that hope invited deacon to FC...if ridge wants to be with taylor then he needs to man up and just go already....

Yesterday she was apologetic about posting the photo and was seemingly concerned she caused a problem for her mother and Ridge because of the photo. But then a bit later she called her daddy to tell him Ridge was on a plane and therefore the coast was clear for him to come and visit her…and thereby Brooke…on Brooke’s property despite Brooke’s telling both of them Deacon is no longer welcome there.

I thought Hope was a person of such high moral standards. Apparently she’s of the “if nobody sees or finds out then it doesn’t count” school of thought. She was so nonchalant and actually I thought flippant when Deacon arrived as if she had done nothing wrong. Hope SAYS she wants her mother to be with Ridge since that is what Brooke wants…but it’s pretty clear she doesn’t mean that. Passive aggressive.

I’m not concerned here about the Ridge-Taylor kiss or all of Ridge’s many faults. The kiss is not yet on the table but it soon will be. And Ridge’s faults don’t play into this because then Hope would be saying two wrongs make a right…and that proves my point…hat Hope seems to think she has done nothing wrong. I’m just surprised she thinks sneaking is a fine way to act.

This story is really disjointed. All along, Hope supported Brooke and Ridge. Now, and I don't know why, she seems to be anti-Ridge. I'm sensing that she wants her parents to be together.
