A few folks know the truth about baby Phoebe actually being Beth on The Bold and the Beautiful but the most important people — her parents — are in the dark. How long will it take before the truth comes out?
On Days of Our Lives, it took about seven years for the true parentage of Michael Horton to come out. Today’s soap tales are told much more quickly, but that’s no guarantee that the truth about baby Phoebe actually being baby Beth is going to become public knowledge anytime soon!
Annika Noelle (Hope) is just in the dark as anyone else as to when the truth will come out. “We only get the shows about two to three weeks in advance,” Noelle told TV Insider. “The longer it takes, the more devastating it will be. It’s going to be a very big reveal and I’m curious as to how Brad [Bell, executive producer/head writer] will go about it.”
Savvy viewers who figured out that Dr. Reese Buckingham (Wayne Brady) stole Hope’s baby have wanted a mother and child reunion to occur, like, yesterday. But, will that even be possible once the truth comes out? With each passing day, Phoebe grows closer to Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).
“Are Liam and Hope going to be together when they find out?” Noelle rhetorically asks. “How old will Beth be when this is revealed? How bonded will Steffy be with her at that point?”
The story kicked into full gear a few months ago when Noelle was celebrating her first anniversary with the half-hour soap.
“I can’t believe a whole year has gone by since I joined the show,” Noelle says. “They’ve all become like a family to me [at B&B]. I’ve grown as a person and an actor because of this show. I’m eternally grateful.”
