Shirley’s proven she’s a force to be reckoned with on The Bold and the Beautiful (BB), albeit a duplicitous one.
Since the original Sally Spectra’s (Darlene Conley) sister arrived in town, she’s been wheeling, dealing and manipulating. Shirley (Patrika Darbo) has quickly shown she’s a woman without a conscience, who’s willing to do whatever it takes to get what she wants.
Use a family member? No problem. Bend or break the law? Check. But is Shirley someone fans would want as a friend? That’s the question Soap Hub posed, and here are your answers.
No, She’s Not BFF Material
Scheming Shirley is not someone 96% of you would ever want to call BFF… or even friend for that matter. She’s too controlling and calculating — just ask Sally 2.0 (Courtney Hope).
She’s always looking to forward her own agenda no matter who gets hurt in the process. Using her granddaughter Coco (Courtney Grosbeck) to spy on Forrester is a perfect example.
If she’d do that to family, she’d obviously have no qualms about doing something even more underhanded to someone who is only a friend.
Yes, You’d Be Her Pal
A tiny 4% of you say you would be friends with Shirley. Despite her faults, she seems like she’d be a heck of a lot of fun to hang out. While she’s a manipulator, as long as you keep your eyes open, you think you’d be safe.
And, who knows? In your hour of need, Shirley might be the perfect person to help you pull off a scheme or two of your own.
