It was the next morning and Katie told Donna she had no choice but to go and confront Bill and Brooke. She gave Donna instructions to watch the baby and left. Liam stopped by looking for Bill. They planned a private meeting at the house. Donna played clueless. Hope appeared and locked eyes with Liam. Apparently it was Hope’s morning with the baby this week so she and Donna agreed for her to take over. Donna left for work. Liam told Hope he could take care of Will but Hope wanted to stay. They sat Will on the floor with his toys and discussed babies and how much they change your life with all their needs. Hope encouraged Liam to be patient with Steffy through this whole process. Liam wondered if he was even cut out to be a father to anyone. Hope was sure he’d be a dream father. They played with the baby and continued chatting. Hope expressed that this was how she envisioned her life with Liam one day. Later, the baby was napping. Liam tried getting ahold of Bill again but with no luck. Hope and Liam talked about babies growing up. Liam wished he could go back to living the simplistic life of a baby. Hope said that you have to straighten up and start coloring in between the lines at some point. Liam apologized for being on one side of the line and Hope being on the other. “Me too,” Hope replied.

At Forrester, Rick and Eric observed some models wearing new lingerie designs. Aside from a few little details, Eric approved. Taylor, followed by Thomas arrived and Thomas hissed that the lingerie won’t do for the company what his ideas would have done. Rick disagreed. Taylor sided with her son and warned that Brooke would bring nothing but scandal. She argued that Bill being behind the launch, combined with Brooke being a press favorite, was toxic for the company. Rick welcomed tabloids and social media buzzing about Brooke and accused Taylor of being stuck in the dark ages. Taylor said it wasn’t wise to put all their eggs in one basket and that this would all amount to an invitation to disaster. Thomas of course agreed. Eric said he knew the line could bring consequences but he won’t change his mind. Rick was confident the line would be a huge hit and Eric will be lauded around the world. Taylor hoped Rick was right because if he wasn’t, not only would the company suffer, but lives will be ruined.
As the popularity of soap operas fell in recent years (shown by decreased ratings and the cancelation of several sudsers, leaving only “The Young and the Restless,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Days of our Lives,” and “General Hospital” on the air), the Daytime Emmy Awards shifted to keep up: Gone were the beloved clips showcasing the nominated actors’ work and the majority of the show celebrating daytime dramas, in were more moments involving morning, talk, game and cooking shows. And rumor had it that the Emmys would become even less soap-centric as the years went on. But according to the Daytime Emmys’ senior executive director, David Michaels, though this year’s program has not yet been set, he’s sure the ceremony will keep soaps front and center, right where they belong!
“The daytime fan base comes from all genres,” he tells Variety. “We have a Facebook page, and it’s not just the soap fans. The games and the talk shows have some pretty rabid fans, too. But there’s no fans like soap fans.”
Looking at how daytime television has become the pre-primtime of the entertainment landscape in more ways than one, Variety.com, now part of Penske Business Media, LLC (owners of Deadline.com and TVLine.com), has highlighted several of daytime’s biggest stars in front of and behind the scenes who help make the daily drama, the fun & games and the topics of discussion millions of viewers tune into each and every weekday.
