The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers tease that the Phoebe-Beth reveal is nowhere near close to being ready to come out. While many of the fans hoped that the scoop would come out by Summer sweeps, head writer Brad Bell teases that may not happen.
In fact, he teases that it might not happen for “a very long time.” Here’s what you need to know about what’s coming up on B&B.
B&B Spoilers– Phoebe Won’t Be Beth Any Time Soon!
Brad spoke to soap blogger Michael Fairman about the baby reveal, stating that it would be “some time before it comes out.” A few months ago, the showrunner said he thought it would be a great storyline to last years and reveal the truth when Phoebe is a teenager. He compared it to Summer Newman’s (Hunter King) reveal on Y&R.
For those who don’t watch Y&R, Phyllis Summers (Gina Tononi) wasn’t sure if Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) or Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) was her daughter’s father. Immediately after her birth, Nick ordered a paternity test, only to rip up the results before looking at them. He believed that she was his daughter in every way that counted.
The difference is there was no baby swap on Y&R. In 2013ish, Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) wanted to hang on to Nick and she switched Summer’s paternity results to say that Jack Abbott was the father. It all came out that Sharon lied and swapped the results. In the end, Nick was right –he was Summer’s daddy!
BOLD Spoilers– A Devastating Death Is Coming!
Another shocker Brad revealed to Michael Fairman is that the secret will cause someone’s death. Apparently, someone will die and the secret will come out almost immediately after the character’s death. He refused to give any more information on it, but Hollywood Hiccups has an idea of how this could play out.

Suppose Flo Fulton (Katrina Bowden) and Zoe Buckingham (Kiara Barnes) get into yet another argument about Flo wanting to reveal the baby truth. B&B spoilers say that Zoe believes it has been too long now so it’s best to stay quiet. Perhaps by then, Flo may have married Wyatt Fuller (Darin Brooks).
During the argument, a physical fight breaks out, and somehow Zoe ends up dead. Now, Reese Buckingham (Wayne Brady) has to come to L.A. for his daughter’s funeral. Grief-stricken, Reese confesses Phoebe is really Beth.
It would be a great way to end this, but we all know that Brad Bell’s version of how it will come out will probably not be that exciting.
