The Bold and the Beautiful has had lots of mothers on the show over the years. And those moms often get involved in the lives of their children, arguing that they have more experience and they know what’s best in nearly every situation.
The Bold and the Beautiful Polling
Try telling young adults however that mom knows best — especially in matters of the heart. Soap Hub asked B&B fans which maternal figure they feel is the most overbearing — their answer may surprise you.
Princess Grace, Queen Mother
Grace Buckingham (Cassandra Creech) earned the majority of your votes with 44% of the total tally. It’s easy to see why. Grace has been harassing her daughter Paris Buckingham (Diamond White) over her choice of boyfriends. Paris wanted Carter Walton (Lawrence Saint-Victor) but Grace knew better! Well, actually, she truly did know better. But the heart wants what the heart wants. Grace couldn’t make her daughter fall for Zende Forrester Dominguez (Delon de Metz) if there wasn’t a spark.
The Bold and the Beautiful Hall of Fame
The late Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery) has been gone for almost a decade but that didn’t stop her from getting 20% of your vote. Her years of trying to run her son Ridge Forrester’s (Thorsten Kaye) marriages and trying to keep Caroline Spencer (Joanna Johnson) wed to Thorne Forrester when she didn’t truly love him are forever etched into the memories of B&B viewers.
BeLieF It Or Not
Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) scored about 19% of your vote. Arguably, she used Rick and Bridget like chess pieces when trying to lure Ridge back into her life during the 1990s. And Brooke will never live down sleeping with Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan), Bridget’s husband, and having sex (albeit inadvertently) with daughter Hope’s beau Oliver Jones (Zach Conway).
Finn’s Two Moms
Dr. John ‘Finn’ Finnegan (Tanner Novlan) has two mothers — birth mother Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) and Dr. Li Finnegan (Naomi Matsuda) — and they both made this list with, respectively, approximately, 15% and 2% of your vote. Sheila’s machinations are too many to list. Li made the cut courtesy of her kidnapping her own boy and attempting to revive him on her own.
