Steffy Forrester vs. Sheila Carter is the next epic feud on ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’

Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) has been an enemy of the Forrester family for over two decades. She’s inflicted harm on various family members throughout the years, and when the Forresters think they’re rid of her, Sheila returns. Her latest return already has the family on edge, including Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), who discovered Sheila is her new mother-in-law.

Steffy’s already made it known Sheila’s not welcomed anywhere near her family. However, that didn’t stop Sheila from seeing her son Dr. John “Finn” Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) and her grandson Hayes (Samantha Worden). When Steffy discovered Sheila inside her home, things became tense between the two women, resulting in Steffy slapping Sheila. That moment sent fans reeling and helped further develop the ongoing rivalry between the characters.
