The Bold and the Beautiful, like many soaps, is known for its paternity swaps. For example, for years, viewers thought Ridge was the son of Eric — not Massimo. Is the show headed for another paternity twist?
Shauna (Denise Richards) was shocked to learn that one-time fling Storm Logan (William deVry) resulted in their daughter Flo (Katrina Bowden) being conceived. Was her surprise an act? Maybe Shauna orchestrated the whole thing so she could ingratiate herself into these new (and wealthy) families to whom her daughter is now connected?
But is Flo’s mom really that diabolical? Soap Hub asked BB fans to weigh in on the theory as to whether or not Shauna’s up to something!
More than half of you, 53% to be exact, believe that yes, Shauna could have rigged the paternity tests. It wouldn’t have meant necessarily sneaking into a hospital and swapping out physical files (like in the olden days!)
Shauna could have done it all by computer. Sure, she was shocked when Storm was revealed to be the dad, but that could all be part of her plan!
The rest of you, 47%, don’t believe that Shauna would do this. If she wanted to use her daughter’s paternity for financial advantage wouldn’t she have done that a while ago? She hasn’t asked for any money in terms of an estate Storm might have left behind (he was a lawyer, after all).
While it won’t be surprising to see some scheming from Shauna — she already agreed to try to seduce past fling Bill (Don Diamont) for Katie (Heather Tom) — she may not go so far as to lie about her daughter.
All In The Family
The main reason Shauna had better not be lying about her daughter’s paternity is that if Storm’s not the dad then Bill likely is. And that would make a Flo/Wyatt (Darin Brooks) pairing a BIG no-no! Flo wouldn’t let this go on for that reason. Stay tuned to see what’s going to happen next!
