Recently, fans took to Twitter to express their thoughts in a poll — the results reveal that many viewers have a definite problem with a recent plot twist involving characters Eric and Shauna. 

What is ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ about?

The Bold and the Beautiful first premiered on television in 1987, signaling a new era in television drama. The show was created as a “sister series” to The Young and the Restless, a soap opera that first aired in 1973.

The series follows the lives and loves of the Forrester family, their successful fashion business, and their plethora of friends, enemies, and associates. Over the years, many of the characters in both shows have crossed over to the other on a number of occasions, creating intriguing storylines that involve many of the most popular stars.

It is no secret that viewers love the show – but critics also aren’t shy about lavishing praise on The Bold and the Beautiful. To date, the series has accrued a staggering 77 Emmy Awards.

In 2011, the series switched to high definition television, and in 2017, it celebrated its thirtieth anniversary. In spite of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, the show has soldiered on, and is still filming new episodes.

Shauna Fulton, played by Denise Richards, is one of the newer characters to join the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful. Shauna is the mother of Flo Fulton and one of Quinn Fuller’s best friends. Shauna has a way of always finding drama, and in recent months, has found herself stuck between Ridge and Brooke in an intense love triangle.

Although fans have not always loved Denise Richards’ portrayal of Shauna, but she has certainly caused a lot of conversation. Her most recent scandal involves longtime B&B mainstay Eric Forrester.

After going through a rocky patch with Quinn, Eric strikes up a flirty new relationship with Shauna, and she moves into his palatial guest house. The show is leaving many of Eric’s motives open to interpretation — but when it comes to Shauna, fans definitely have an opinion.

In a November 18th poll hosted on The Bold and the Beautiful’s official Twitter account, fans were asked if they think it was wrong of Shauna to live with Eric.

A staggering 69 percent of fans responded and stated that they believe that Shauna is in the wrong, with about 30 percent claiming that they don’t see anything wrong with it.

Fans also sounded off in the comments, with one viewer of the show stating that “absolutely it was wrong. She claims she’s Quinn’s friend. That’s not how friends roll. And she didn’t go out of her way to TELL her supposed bestie where she was staying. Plus? She’s still THERE and pouring it on THICK. She shopping for a situation.”

The future of Shauna and Eric’s new living arrangements have yet to be revealed — but there’s no doubt that fans are totally invested in whatever will end up happening. Stay tuned to Showbiz Cheat Sheet for all the latest entertainment news!
