The Bold and the Beautiful has had more than it’s fair share of shocking hookups, relationships, and marriages. Some have lasted while others were brief flashes in the pan. Due to its short half-hour format, B&B has a much smaller cast than other soaps. This leads to some pretty shocking pairings that often crosses boundaries that in real-life, would be downright shocking. Here is a list of five of the most scandalous relationships in Bold history.

#5 Rick Forrester & Taylor Hayes
This relationship was especially scandalous because Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) had just ended a relationship with Taylor Hayes’s (Hunter Tylo) daughter Phoebe Forrester (Mackenzie Mauzy) and she was very devastated. Secondly, Rick was the son of Taylor’s arch-rival Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang). Tayloe accused Brooke of stealing the love of her life Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye).
This affair had a very tragic ending when Phoebe walked in on Rick and Taylor the night of Brooke and Ridge’s engagement party. Then Phoebe saw the two of them together and ran from the room. Rick followed her and tried to explain, but she wasn’t hearing it. They ended up in Rick’s car on the way to the party, and the car crashed killing Phoebe. This week, Taylor sparks a new fight with Brooke,
#4 Ridge Forrester & Caroline Spencer
This affair was born out of heartache when Caroline Spencer (Linsey Godfrey) found out that her husband Rick had been cheating on her with Maya Avant (Karla Mosley) and was going to dump her and marry his mistress. All of this was because Rick assumed that Caroline was having an affair with Ridge. Ridge and Caroline grew close after that, and he comforted her and helped her move on.
After, Caroline was involved in an accident that injured both her legs and left her unable to walk. Ridge helped her get back on her feet. Through it all, they fell in love and ended up marrying at a private house in Malibu. Sadly the marriage did not last long. It ended in the aftermath of Caroline having a child with Ridge’s son, Thomas Forrester (Pierson Fode), and a messy paternity lie.
Taylor vs Brooke is about to get nasty!
#3 Wyatt Spencer & Katie Logan
Since Katie Logan (Heather Tom) is the mother of Wyatt Spencer’s (Darin Brooks) little brother Will Spencer (Zane Achor), this pairing is pretty sketchy. Last summer, when rumblings of this pairing first bubbled, many fans were outraged and said they would stop watching. Now Katie and Wyatt are hot and heavy, and considering marrying, and everyone is still tuning in!
Bill Spencer’s (Don Diamont) outrage when he found out about the pairing reflected audience discomfort, and he called the pair “disgusting.” Then again, Bill is pining for his daughter-in-law and hoping to marry her, so he doesn’t have any room to talk about whom his ex-wife hooks up with, even if it’s his son who’s getting busy with his brother’s mother.
Wyatt is furious at his daddy – what’s he gonna do about it?
#2 Liam Spencer & Quinn Fuller
Speaking of brother lovers, Quinn Fuller (Rena Sofer) cornered the market on creepy relationships with near-family. Quinn didn’t set out to become the lover of her son’s brother, but it went there anyway. Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) was brain damaged, and Quinn convinced him they were married, so sex seemed a natural evolution, but it crossed too many lines.
Liam must still wake up traumatized when he recalls his steamy nights at the cabin with his brother’s mother. However, all grossness about Liam being Quinn’s son’s brother aside, they had killer chemistry. Plus, it seemed like for a few moments, there was some genuine love between Quinn and Liam. But Quinn had to give it up when her boy toy escaped. Spoilers say Liam’s about to get married again!

#1 Brooke Logan & Her Daughter’s Men!
Brooke Logan deserves her very own list of all her many inappropriate liaisons, but her two worst were with Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan) and Oliver Jones (Zack Conroy). Brooke got busy with Deacon while he was married to her daughter Bridget Forrester (Ashley Jones). Brooke got pregnant with Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) from that affair.
But Brooke didn’t only get with Bridget’s man – she also scored with her other daughter Hope’s guy. At a party, Brooke had a masked encounter with an also-masked Oliver at a party. Poor Oliver thought he was deflowering his girlfriend but, instead, was shagging his GF’s mama. Shouldn’t Oliver have known that Hope wouldn’t drop her V card on a slimy party hookup? Gross!
