Everyone Wants A Piece of Katie’s Divorce Settlement
Katie isn’t so sure about Ridge’s suggestion that she go after the Forrester Creations shares as part of her settlement. Ridge thinks it would set her for life. And he admits, it would help secure Forrester Creations from Eric’s new love interest – Quinn. Of course, it would also get Bill out of Ridge’s hair.
But Katie knows she has a lot to lose if she doesn’t take Bill’s settlement, and that everyone’s concern for her being set for life is more than a little self-serving. Bill has threatened to have her declared incompetent and has only recently agreed not to go there. Katie doesn’t want to rock that boat because Bill is going to fight this, Katie tells Ridge and she doesn’t want to go to court.
Ridge Confronts Quinn
Quinn is back home and gets a visit from best buddy and ex-husband, Deacon. Deacon advised against Quinn chasing Eric to Monte Carlo for the sake of her son’s marriage. And Quinn would have taken that advice if it weren’t for Eric’s email/text, dumping her. Deacon supposes that Quinn’s little surprise in Monte Carlo for Eric didn’t go over so well…He’s half right. Eric was happy enough to see her, but Steffy wasn’t…
And nor was Steffy’s dad when he found out. Ridge, newly separated and out of a job has had nothing to occupy his time and has suddenly become concerned about his father being lonely and some black widow taking advantage of him.
Of course, Ridge’s concern came too late. Eric and Quinn had already been secretly seeing each other for a while. Now Ridge is in damage control mode. He goes to see Quinn to get her to stay away from his father. Quinn tells Ridge there is no need for him to be concerned. Eric ended things between them.
And no conversation would be complete without discussing Steffy and Wyatt’s marriage, and Ridge has a message for Quinn. He thinks that this little dalliance with Eric will cost Quinn a lot. Ridge believes that his daughter will end her marriage to Quinn’s son, just to get Quinn out of her life.
