‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ Teases a Renewed Steffy and Hope Rivalry — And This Time, It’s Not About Liam

The Bold and the Beautiful is bringing back a classic rivalry, folks. No, it’s not Brooke and Taylor (although, really, that would be nice). It’s Steffy and Hope! Yes, folks, wonders never cease. The writers know what works, and keeping these two beauties at each other’s throats is good, soapy TV. Who wants to have a normal, healthy relationship with their baby daddy’s new wife, anyway? Besides, for once in their lives, Steffy and Hope aren’t fighting about Liam, which is extraordinary in and of itself.

[Spoiler alert: Potential spoilers for upcoming episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful are ahead.]

On ‘The Bold and the Beautiful,’ Steffy has beef with Hope

Steffy and Hope are the worst step-sisters in the history of forever. They’ve been fighting about Liam for as long as either one of them can remember. But now, Steffy’s beef with Hope has to do with Hope’s mother, Brooke, who is married to Steffy’s father, Ridge. And according to SoapHub, upcoming episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful will feature Steffy tearing into her step-sister for her role in covering up her mother’s cheating ways.

“Also in a face-off are Steffy Forrester Finnegan (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Hope Logan Spencer (Annika Noelle). The (soon-to-be-ex, probably) stepsisters exchange some choice words. Steffy thought she and Hope were finally in a place of respect but no, she lied for her mother and used sweet little Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri) in the cover-up. Unacceptable!” reports the outlet.

Yeah — it’s more than a little messed up to bring kids in the middle of the mess.

And for the first time in what seems like forever, it’s not about Liam

For the first time in what seems like the entirety of The Bold and the Beautiful history, Steffy and Hope are not fighting over Liam! Will wonders never cease?

But, according to Celeb Dirty Laundry, as far as Hope is concerned, Steffy stuck her nose where it didn’t belong. There’s really no reason for grown men and women to stick their nose in other grown men and women’s business, especially when the grown men and women in question are the parents. (To be fair, Ridge had a bad habit of sticking his nose in Eric’s business with the Quinn and Carter drama, so maybe this is his karma.)

Still, the beef far from stops with Steffy and Hope. No, Steffy wants war, and what Steffy wants, Steffy gets.

Steffy wants blood from Brooke, too

Steffy’s real beef is with Brooke, after all — and she feels her dad can do so much better than Brooke. Like, say, her mom. But while Taylor is tearing into Brooke, Soaps.com reveals that some upcoming episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful will feature Steffy wanting her pound of flesh, too. And that’s only going to cause even more drama between Steffy and Hope.

The claws are definitely out — and the fur is definitely flying — on The Bold and the Beautiful.
