Bold and the Beautiful is running classic episodes, and many feature Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) and Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood). But in “real-time” on the soap, Liam’s devastated Steffy once again with his waffling ways. In fact, you might say he’s the worst thing for her and has wrecked her life over and over on the CBS sudser. Here’s who.
#1 Liam Spencer Took Her From Wyatt – Bold and the Beautiful Mismatch?
B&B knows that Liam Spencer and brother Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks) dated he same women time and again – including Steffy Forrester. But, what if Liam left Steffy with Wyatt — and stuck with Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) or Ivy Forrester (Ashleigh Brewer)?
Remember on Bold and the Beautiful, when Quinn Fuller (Rena Sofer) kidnapped Liam Spencer? Back then, Steffy Forrester thought he’d run off with Ivy. So, she was happily in a new romance with Wyatt. He was devoted to her, didn’t want anyone else, and loved Steffy.
Plus, as Bold and the Beautiful recaps remind, Wyatt always wanted Steffy Forrester to be herself – while Liam Spencer was a constant critic. In the end, wouldn’t Steffy have been happier with Wyatt? And she wouldn’t be in all the pain she is now – a heartbroken single parent.

#2 Liam Emotionally Cheated With Sally – Prompting Bill Spencer Affair
Bold and the Beautiful viewers know that a lot of the problems Steffy Forrester has now started with Liam Spencer. Remember when he was giving Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) all his time? He was helping with her business after Thomas Forrester (then Pierson Fode) ran off with his ex.
Liam insisted he was just a friend to Sally, as seen on Bold and the Beautiful. But since Sally fell in love with him, Liam Spencer was sending mixed signals. And that was to both the redhead and also Steffy Forrester. Remember, Sally was sure she loved Liam.
She uttered those words on Bold and the Beautiful when she thought they were dying in the explosion, then they kissed. That emotional affair Liam Spencer had with Sally broke Steffy Forrester’s heart. And it’s what made her vulnerable when his skeevy dad came knocking.
#3 He Knocked up Hope Logan While With Steffy Forrester on B&B
Bold and the Beautiful fans also remember that while Steffy Forrester was recovering from childbirth, Liam Spencer was misbehaving. Steffy caught him with Hope, ripping each other’s clothes off in the back rooms of her family’s business. It was a huge betrayal.
Of course, there were still some hurt feelings on Liam Spencer’s part because Steffy slept with his dad. But, Bold and the Beautiful watchers also know if Liam weren’t giving Sally all his time and energy, Bill wouldn’t have a chance with Steffy Forrester. It all comes back to Liam’s waffler ways.
Bill pulled strings behind the scenes — sure he was Steffy’s destiny. But, Liam jumped the gun (and into bed with Hope). And, he got her pregnant. Then, he continued ping longing and hurting both women on Bold and the Beautiful.
#4 He Holds Back Steffy & Won’t Let Her Be Herself on Bold and the Beautiful
B&B also showed what a wild and untamed spirit that Steffy Forrester is by nature. She loves her motorcycle, living fierce, and being a style icon. Meanwhile, Liam Spencer is always a Debbie Downer. His dad often remarks on how meh his tofu-loving, tree-hugging son can be.
Bold and the Beautiful often showed Liam Spencer lecturing Steffy, and making her feel bad for the woman she was. He hassled her about her rivalry with Ivy and Hope. Meanwhile, it was Liam triggering all that because he couldn’t choose one woman and stick with her.
On Bold and the Beautiful, he didn’t want her riding her motorcycle or adventuring. Meanwhile, Wyatt had her out surfing, bought her a new cycle, and encouraged her to live the life she wanted. Remember, their wild wedding tattoos? Liam would never have done that.
#5 Liam Keeps Stringing Her Along & Playing Ping Pong
Bold and the Beautiful longtime fans might do a happy dance if Steffy Forrester found new love and never looked back at Liam Spencer. But, it seems like anytime she’s happy, he sweeps back in and shakes up her life. The big question is, why does she let him do it?
Right now on Bold and the Beautiful, Liam’s living his little life in the cabin with Hope, their daughter, and another man’s son. Meanwhile, Steffy rarely gets to see the baby she raised as her own for months. And, she’s got no romance in her life.
So, when Bold and the Beautiful comes back on the air with new episodes, let’s hope that Steffy Forrester gets a new love in her life. And that she never takes a second look at Liam Spencer. Do you agree, or do you think Liam’s destined to be with Steffy on the CBS soap?
