Shauna’s (Denise Richards) arrival in Los Angeles serves various plot purposes on The Bold and the Beautiful. One of them involves the identity reveal of Steffy’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) adopted baby, temporarily known as Phoebe.
Flo (Katrina Bowden) never was, isn’t, and never will be Beth’s mother. And that’s who Phoebe is, as Reese (Wayne Brady) first knew. He was the one who wasn’t able to control his gambling addiction and was in debt to a slimy bookie for two-hundred thousand dollars.
B&B Spoilers — Reese Used Beth To Keep Zoe Safe
John Travolta’s older brother, Joey (Mr. Thicke), was then told to trail both Reese and Zoe (Kiara Barnes). That pressure eventually led Brady’s well-played character to instantly concoct the baby-swap story on that dark and stormy soapy night when ‘Lope’s’ baby did not die but was used by Dr. Buckingham to secure Zoe’s safety.

Why didn’t Reese just ask Taylor (Hunter Tylo) for the bucks instead? Well, that wouldn’t have allowed this interesting arc to exist.
Richards is a real-life friend of Darin Brooks (Wyatt). She’s stated that he’s how she learned of the B&B casting opportunity. Personal connections open employment doors in Hollywood, as they do for other people in other industries around the world. But then the hire needs to perform on the job, as Richards surely will based upon her career chops.
Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers– Shauna And Quinn’s History Is Complicated
Shauna is called by Flo, who wants to pursue her own paternity reveal. That drives the elder Fulton to come to L.A., where she reconnects with Quinn (Rena Sofer), who is her old friend from Vegas.
After learning about Flo’s claimed child, Quinn then shares the stunning news with Bill (Don Diamont). Mr. Spencer is, of course, the father of Wyatt, whose backstory was just expanded along with his mom’s. The ruse makes Flo look even better in Quinn’s eyes, as she wants Wyatt to swap the younger Fulton for Sally (Courtney Hope).
The compelling write-in’s of Flo and Shauna further the coming Phoebe reveal storyline, along with the projected tie-in of Flo’s paternity. Of course, B&B fans know that Beth will eventually be returned to her parents. But what it takes to get there, and the linked tale that’s also developing is why they watch.
As always, more detailed spoilers and a full collection of pictures for the week in question will appear on Soap Opera Spy, where there will be more clues and hints over exactly what’s going on.
