Bold and the Beautiful‘s Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) is popping pills, but Hope Logan‘s (Annika Noelle) no stranger to addiction either. Both the women in Liam Spencer’s (Scott Clifton) life got involved with pills with many similarities in the storylines. So, which is worse – Steffy’s pain med fixation or Hope getting hooked on anxiety drugs on the CBS soap?
Hope Logan Popped Illegal Pills to Cope on Bold and the Beautiful
It was eight years ago when Hope Logan (then Kim Matula) was prescribed anti-anxiety medication after a stressful experience losing her virginity with Liam. But the shrink her mom took her to only gave her two pills. However, schemer Amber Moore (Adrienne Frantz) got her more.
Initially on Bold and the Beautiful, Hope Logan didn’t know she took illegal pills. Amber mislead her to think her doc refilled them. But, once Hope found out they were illegal, she kept popping them anyway. Hope’s involvement with married Liam ruined her reputation and made her a public spectacle, so she was stressed.
Drugged up Hope Logan lied to Liam, almost drowned, passed out and bailed on him, and loads of other antics on Bold and the Beautiful. In the end, Hope kicked her pill habit, but Steffy Forrester gave her a hard time about it for quite a while. So, that’s ironic on B&B given Steffy’s current crisis.
Now It’s Steffy Forrester’s Turn for an Addiction Story on B&B
Bold and the Beautiful spoilers now have Steffy Forrester spiraling into addiction. She, too, had a legit prescription at first, but Steffy’s pills were pain meds, not ones for anxiety. Of course, Steffy’s physical pain was intense. Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) ran a car into her, so she needed the meds.
However, on Bold and the Beautiful, sad Steffy Forrester crossed a line and twice took pills for emotional pain. Plus, the last drug Steffy took was an illegal one she got from Vinny Walker (Joe LoCicero) after her doc refused a refill. That’s like when Hope’s doc refused her during her pill story.
Now, Liam’s outraged at Steffy over finding her passed out on Bold and the Beautiful. Could it be because Steffy Forrester’s pill-popping gives him PTSD about his past with Hope’s drug battle? We’re also wondering if Steffy’s prescription problem will wrap up as fast as Hope’s did.
Who’s Pill Problem is the Worst on Bold and the Beautiful – Steffy or Hope?
With two pill plots on the CBS sudser, we have to ask – which one is worse? Both Steffy Forrester and Hope Logan got pills from their doctors, initially. Hope Logan had emotional pain after she slept with a married man. Steffy Forrester had physical pain over a nasty motorcycle accident.
Also, on Bold and the Beautiful, both wanted refills. And the docs refused both. Then, someone sketchy gave them illegal refills. And, both Hope and Steffy knowingly popped black market drugs. And in both cases, Liam was partially responsible for the insecurities that led them to the pill issues.
One huge difference is that Steffy Forrester popped an opioid she didn’t need while her daughter was in the house with her. That’s dangerous. This week on Bold and the Beautiful, Liam walks out with his daughter. And he heads back to Hope Logan to tell her what happened. Meanwhile, she gets jealous.
So, when Hope watched Steffy take that first pain pill weeks ago, that judgy look on her face was also the look of experience. Also, remember that Hope Logan pulled herself out of her pill spiral pretty fast – so maybe Steffy Forrester can do the same too on B&B on CBS daytime.
