This week on The Bold and the Beautiful (May 11 – 15, 2015): A stunning reveal hurts someone this week. But how is the news disclosed? In a Spencer publication? Or by the source?
May sweeps run from April 23, 2013 to May 20, 2015 – Look for some big reveals during this period. Maya could find her secret “Eye on Fashion” news by the end of May…
Liam and Ivy
Liam and Wyatt keep something from their father. Wyatt gets the secret of Maya’s past out of Nicole. Wyatt fills in Liam and tells him that they need to use what they know to take down Rick – NOW.
A stunned and disbelieving Katie and Bill listen as Bill’s son’s explain the secret Wyatt got out of Nicole. “Maya was a man?” Bill asks incredulously.
Wyatt faces questions from Nicole who wants to know if Wyatt told “them” what she said about Maya.
Liam and Wyatt come up with a plan on how to use their new information. Bill throws a spanner in the works with his ruthless ways.
Rick and Maya
Maya’s friend Nick turns up to support his friend. Nick, who was Maya’s mentor through her transition from Myron to Maya, assures Maya that she is being true to herself and authentic. But Maya is concerned. her secret has spread far and wide. Maya needs Rick to find out about her past from her, and nobody else.
Rick and Maya head to Big Bear for their romantic getaway. There Rick tells Maya that there are a lot of doubters who believe that Rick doesn’t know Maya. Well, Rick is certain that they will prove all the doubters wrong. You have shown me what it truly means to be loved Rick tells Maya.
Maya cannot forget Brooke’s warning and finds herself anxious. Will Maya do as Brooke asks? Will she tell Rick about her past before he proposes? Or will she try to keep her secret despite it having spread through Forrester Creations?
As Maya prepares to tell Rick the story of how she became the woman he loves, Rick tells her that he doesn’t think there is anything she can tell him that will make him lover her any less…She tells him that he will have questions and Maya will answer them the best that she can.
Maya really only has one opportunity to tell Rick. With Wyatt now in on the secret thanks to Nicole, the only thing that stands between Maya’s background becoming the latest celebrity gossip is Liam’s integrity. Bill Spencer, however, will have no problems with using Maya’s secret to gain headlines and boost Spencer Publications bottom line.
Will Spencer Publications break the story of Forrester Creations Lead Model’s past? There is a very real possibility that Rick still grappling with what is a very private issue in his private life could return to Los Angeles after being secluded in Big Bear, to find his life front page news. How would Rick cope with that?
Either way he’ll know as soon/if it hits the headlines with the text message alerts he has set on his phone.
Spoilers indicate that someone is hurt by a disclosure. Does Rick find out about Maya? Could it happen in a very public forum while Rick and Maya are in romantic seclusion at Big Bear?
Carter seems aghast that Nicole told Wyatt about Maya’s past. Nicole admits to divulging Maya’s secret. Carter reminds her that Wyatt’s family owns a media empire and made there fortune peddling stories like Maya’s. Nicole agrees that if Rick finds out from someone other than Maya it will not be good.
Brooke and Eric
Ridge assures Brooke and his father that he has everything under control. Brooke’s reasoning has Ridge being responsible for Rick’s current circumstances? Pretty sure this reasoning goes along the line of Ridge stole Rick’s wife., from him making him turn to Maya, who was waiting in the wings. No one made Rick put his girlfriend/mistress on a pedestal. it was Rick’s own tyrannical behavior that has left him with no ally’s amongst his family members.
While Rick and Maya are having their romantic getaway, everyone in the know at Forrester begins working on how to deal with the inevitable backlash of Maya telling Rick her secret, and the possibility of it going public (too many people know already for it not to go public. Seems like only Rick, Aly and Oliver are clueless at this point in time).
Ridge tells Brooke and Eric that this probably won’t end the way they think it will (given Bill Spencer probably knows about Maya). Rick took down his mother’s picture and replaced it with a woman he barely knows – and now they’ve kind of figured that all out too.
Wyatt and Nicole
Nicole questions whether she can trust Wyatt or not.
Bill and Katie
Bill’s keen business senses tell him that his son’s are withholding information from him. Liam, likely, will have issues with Wyatt’s suggesting to fire up the Spencer media empire and expose Maya’s very private secret. Bill is determined to work out what his boys know that he doesn’t.
The Spencer boys, thanks to Wyatt’s romancing of Nicole, know Maya’s secret. Wyatt’s inital reaction is to make it front page news through the family’s media empire. Liam definitely wants to see Rick ousted as president, but has a much stonger morale code than his brother and father.
Bill and Katie are surprised to learn the truth about Maya being born a boy. Bill and Katie immediately take opposite sides. Katie is emphatic that this is a personal issue and that they are not going near it. The Spencer boys rub their chins as dear old dad turns to face his wife. Are you kidding me? Bill wants to know from Katie.
As far as Bill is concerned he has a way to protect his investment in Forrester Creations and he’s going to use it. Bill lets lawyer buddy Justin into the loop and the two of them hatch a plan…Forresters gorgeous lead model, the supposed one true love of Rick’s life, the big honkin picture hanging on the wall (of the Forrester mansion) was born a guy, Bill explains to Justin.
When Bill learns the secret, he puts the wheels in motion to expose a shocking secret via one of his publications – all in the name of sales.
Katie and Bill argue over ethics and integrity. Transgender people are persecuted every day, Katie tells her husband, and she is not going to allow Bill to lead the charge. Later, however, Bill notes that one person calls the shots here, and its him…
Katie tells Bill he’s a smart man. She’s sure Bill is smart enough to know what kind of trouble he will land in if he publishes Maya’s story.
Ridge and Caroline
With Rick about to learn that the woman he has placed on a very high pedestal isn’t who he thinks she is, Ridge believes things are about to explode at Forrester Creations. With a history of shooting guns in the office Rick hasn’t exactly proven to be stable. Will he surprise everyone?
