Bold and the Beautiful has fans worried Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) is leaving the CBS soap. Given her breakdown and family pushing her towards rehab, it’s a valid concern. So, will Steffy leave B&B soon?
Is Steffy Forrester Leaving The Bold and the Beautiful?
While opioid addiction is undoubtedly a huge social issue, B&B rushed Steffy Forrester’s addiction at a breakneck pace. She had a bottle of six illegal pills from Vinny Walker (Joe LoCicero). To date, Steffy took two of those painkillers. That’s not a lot of drug abuse given the uproar.
But, Bold and the Beautiful viewers saw Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton) lie and say that Steffy Forrester had a bottle “full” of pills. Yes, Steffy needs to stop taking drugs. But, no, she’s not the junkie Liam’s making her out to be on B&B. However, that’s what the soap’s doing.
Now, on Bold and the Beautiful, with Steffy Forrester breaking down and admitting she’s an addict, her fate’s uncertain. Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) could ship her off to rehab. Remember, Liam and Hope Logan (Annika Noelle) kept mentioning that’s what they want for her.
Will Jacqui Wood Take B&B Break for Awhile?
Now, many viewers worry Steffy Forrester’s leaving the Bold and the Beautiful. And with Jacqui Wood’s character storyline, it’s certainly plausible. However, it’s also unlikely for a few reasons. First, Steffy has a hot doc, John Finnegan (Tanner Novlan), to help her over the hump.
Second, Bold and the Beautiful had alcohol abuse and other addiction stories, and no one else shipped off the soap for long. Plus, Steffy’s one of the most popular characters on the CBS sudser. So, if the Forrester co-CEO leaves to get treatment, it won’t be for too long on B&B.
Finally, Bold and the Beautiful spoilers remind that the soap opera moved Steffy Forrester’s pill plot rapidly. So, they’ll probably do her recovery equally fast. Remember how quickly Katie Logan (Heather Tom) went from drunk to just fine in days?
Ms. Forrester Sticks Around at Bold and the Beautiful
Spoilers see that next week, Steffy might be missing from the CBS sudsfest. But that doesn’t mean she’s gone by any means. Now, B&B’s wrapping current storylines to make room for the next batch of plots on Bold and the Beautiful.
The soap’s also wrapping the Brooke-Ridge-Shauna drama. Then, expect to see a clean and pill-free Steffy back to work at Forrester Creations. Then, we’ll see her deeply involved as her brother, Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson), takes a turn at center stage.
So, for those worried that she will exit Bold and the Beautiful, don’t worry. It looks like the worst is over for her. She’s a strong woman who will recover and move on. Let’s hope Finn sticks around and falls for Steffy Forrester after she cleans up her act on B&B on CBS.
For now, Steffy Forrester’s in rehab, but she won’t be gone long and Jacqui definitely isn’t leave the soap.
