As the conversation between Taylor and Stephanie progresses, Taylor expresses guilt feelings over how certain things are turning out. Yes, she is happy that Ridge is practically being pushed into her lap; but she doesn't like that it's Rick doing the pushing. After all, Rick's animosity toward Ridge, and his desire to break up Ridge and Brooke, were given new fuel when Taylor ended her engagement to Rick. Stephanie reminds Taylor that Rick and Ridge have never gotten along, and that Ridge and Brooke's relationship was bound to implode over something. Meanwhile, after making love, Ridge and Brooke talk about Rick. Ridge pays Rick a visit but finds that Eric is already in Rick's room, reassuring his younger son that he is not second best. Ridge is angry to see Rick manipulating Eric; and then Eric drops a bomb. Rick is now co-president of Forrester Creations. Written by
