CBS’ daytime dramas “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful” will celebrate their iconic characters for their fourth week of themed episodes beginning Monday, May 18. “Y&R’s” episodes will feature “The Winters Family” (Bryton James, Christel Khalil, Shemar Moore, Victoria Rowell, Tonya Lee Williams and the Kristoff St. John), and “B&B” will highlight original cast member Katherine Kelly Lang with “The One, the Only Brooke Logan.”

Celebrating the one and only Brooke Logan (Lang), “B&B” will present an entire week of great romance, greater rivalries and a few scandals.

The Bold and the Beautiful” episodes include:

  • Monday, May 18: After their fairy-tale wedding, Eric (original cast member John McCook) whisks Brooke away on their honeymoon in a beautiful hot air balloon and then on a romantic ride through the Southern California desert on horseback. Eric winds down their magical day by surprising his new bride with a lavish desert oasis where they will celebrate being Mr. and Mrs. Eric Forrester. Meanwhile, Ridge (then played by Ronn Moss) attempts to convince Stephanie (Susan Flannery) to let go of her animosity towards her ex-husband’s sexy, young wife and get on with her life.

  • Tuesday, May 19: After a run-in with Taylor (Hunter Tylo) over Ridge, Brooke concocts a plan to shock both Taylor and Stephanie at the press conference announcing Forrester Creations’ newest line, “Brooke’s Bedroom.” With the help of Lauren Fenmore (Tracey E. Bregman), Brooke surprises the Forresters and the press by appearing in sexy lingerie on top of a bed in the Forrester Showroom. Watching on the Fashion Channel from home, Taylor, Ridge’s current wife, is mortified when Brooke describes the line as the “legacy of Ridge Forrester and Brooke Logan.” (OAD: December 11, 1998)
  • Wednesday, May 20: It’s the special 5000th episode of “B&B.” Watch as Brooke waits outside the Forresters’ Big Bear cabin for Ridge, reluctant to go in by herself given her history with Stephanie.
