Katie is happily wed to Thorne on The Bold and the Beautiful, but she also shares a complicated history with her ex-husband, Bill Spencer, the father of her son Will. Is their love truly over?
Let’s look back at the love story between Katie (Heather Tom) and Bill (Don Diamont) and see if they might have a future — or if their complicated past makes that impossible.
A True Gentleman
Initially, Katie was taken by Bill’s chivalry since he passed on seducing her after she got drunk. They began dating but Katie learned Bill wanted to take over Forrester Creations, the company near and dear to Katie’s sister, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang).
Bill succeeded in acquiring Forrester but surprised Katie by making her CEO. They then married.
Wedded bliss didn’t last. Katie grew horrified after learning Bill plotted to take out Amber (Adrienne Frantz) after believing she was pregnant with his son Liam’s (Scott Clifton) child.
Bill kept Katie a prisoner for a while, but she still couldn’t extricate herself from his life.
Will And Brooke
Katie, suffering from a heart condition, had Bill’s son, Will (Finnegan George) despite Bill asking her to have an abortion.
Katie survived labor but fell into postpartum depression. A confused Katie encouraged a Bill/Brooke romance, and they agreed to it!
Bill gave Katie 1% of Spencer Publications in their divorce. She teamed up with Bill’s sister, Karen (Joanna Johnson), who owned 50%, and became the company’s CEO. Later, Katie gave Bill back his company.
I’ll Drink To That
Alcoholic Katie got back on the wagon after divorcing Bill. Bill and Katie co-parented Will until Katie wed Thorne (Ingo Rademacher), sued for custody, and won.
Soon, Katie realized Bill deserved to be in his son’s life. Might this realization lead to a reunion between Will’s parents? Stay tuned to find out!
