Having caught Devon smooching Hilary, Colin demanded $2 million to keep his trap shut. Conveniently enough, Neil arrived and thought the scoundrel should join them all for dinner! Word spread about Victoria having had the baby, and everyone was thrilled. Heck, even Victor was relatively supportive (when not trash-talking Billy, of course). Nikki pointed out that either Stitch or Billy would be forever tied to Victoria, but Victor declared neither man was worthy. Victoria's doctor suggested it was time to answer the big question: Who's the daddy? Jack seemed ready to tell Kelly about his having gotten re-engaged to Phyllis (although he probably wasn't going to mention the whole "and-we-celebrated-by-having-sex" thing), but she was called away to deal with her mom's medical crisis.
Eric and Rick agreed that Ridge and Caroline's designs were downright gorgeous. In fact, Rick suggested they should sell for about as much as a two-bedroom condo in Brentwood. Ridge, of course, immediately realized that Rick was trying to sabotage the line. Caroline begged Rick to get past his anger and work on their marriage, but he wasn't much interested in doing that. Katie and Bill had a nice catch-up session, during which she filled him in on everything that had been going on in her life. You know, stuff like "the baby is fine" and "my husband-to-be seduced your niece for his own purposes." Needless to say, Bill did not take that last development particularly well. In fact, Bill stormed right over to Forrester so he could confront "the Sultan of chiffon." It just so happened that he arrived in time to find Ridge comforting Caroline with a hug, setting the stage for an explosive confrontation... and today's cliffhanger!
On Monday's episode of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL, Hope having seen Liam and Ivy kiss pouted until Wyatt agreed to take her back to Los Angeles. On the plane, she finally apologized and Wyatt was, as always, accepting of her behavior. "We have to focus on our marriage," he reminded her, "and that baby inside of you is our future." But two seconds after agreeing to focus on her marriage, Hope drifted off into memories of her relationship with Liam. In Amsterdam, Liam and Ivy confirmed their love for one another and spent the night together. Rick gifted Maya with diamonds and made love to her in his office, but his mind was still on Caroline. For her part, Caroline hoped to fix things with her hubby, but that was about to get a tad more complicated. Why? Because Eric was so thrilled by Ridge and Caroline's designs, that he insisted they continue to work together!
On Monday's episode of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, Victoria gave birth to a baby girl with the help of Billy and Stitch. Adam continued to pretend he was Constance's grandson, Gabriel, but nearly blew it with his distaste for spinach. Luckily, Sage was on hand to help cover his gaffe. Jeff was intrigued when Chelsea offered to pay him to drop the lawsuit. "It's incredible," she told her dad, "I can actually see the dollar signs bouncing around in your head!" Jack proposed (again) to Phyllis, who accepted. While in bed, he finally admitted that there had been someone else. Good thing he didn't name names, because Phyllis joked at least we hope it was a joke! that she'd kill the other woman! Summer and Austin debated what to do for Thanksgiving.
Is Kelly Thiebaud jumping ship as GENERAL HOSPITAL's Britt to tackle the role of Steffy on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL?
While ABC does not comment on actor contracts, sources tell Soaps In Depth that Thiebaud had opted not to sign a new deal with GH, and has been on recurring status with the soap until her character could ultimately be written out. Rumor has it that B&B swooped in and made the actress an offer she couldn't refuse!
Alas, the rumor is exactly that, and nothing more. A spokesperson for the CBS soap tells In Depth that there is no truth to it, and that Thiebaud will not be joining the cast of B&B as Steffy Forrester.
Eileen Davidson just can't slow down! The soap-hopping actress, who is currently playing THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Ashley, is now back on set at DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Kristen in what the soap is calling a "can't miss" storyline set to air in early next year! And this is in addition to her real life being taped as one of the newest cast members of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS!
When last we saw Kristen, she had abducted Theresa as part of a twisted plot to have Brady's baby. Of course, as you'll notice in the photo NBC released of Davidson on set at DAYS posted with this article, she doesn't look particularly pregnant. Since DAYS tapes so far in advance, could Kristen be returning to Salem with a little bundle of joy? Unfortunately we'll have to wait until the spring of 2015 to find out what the next step in her crazy scheme will be! Stay tuned!

Eric was caught off guard when he received a surprise visit from Taylor, who told him that Steffy was shell-shocked to learn that Hope had married Wyatt. She also informed him that she and Thorne were no longer an item. Eric thought he'd dodged a bullet when Stephanie's portrait remained on the wall after he gave Taylor a peck on the cheek, but when the shrink left, the picture came crashing to the floor!
Clearly uncomfortable in Ivy and Liam's presence, Hope asked Wyatt to be patient with her during this trip as she tried to come to terms with the fact that Liam was moving on. Wyatt encouraged Liam to get more game where Ivy was concerned and step up the romance. In Dam Square, Hope and Ivy took part in a glamorous photo shoot to showcase Ivy's jewelry designs, but there was clearly tension between the two women. While Ivy was in front of the camera, Liam sidled up to Hope and asked her if she was okay. She admitted she wasn't okay, seemingly admitting that she still yearned for him!

Instead of condemning her, though, Mariah offered a rare show of support for her mom.
Phyllis discovered Jack and Kelly's texts which revealed their love for each other. Instead of confronting him, the redhead manipulated Jack into a corner, suggesting they get married and have an engagement party, which Kelly could help her plan! Joe surprised Avery at her office. When he suggested she'd soon get bored of Dylan, she slapped him. He responded by yanking her into a kiss. Furious, Avery accused him of taking over Crimson Lights to get back at Dylan, and promised to take him to court to prevent that as well as sue him if he ever laid hands on her again! Later, Joe went to see Dylan, and suggested they be civil with one another. Dylan suggested he find another coffee place to drink at! Nick asked Avery to be his lawyer to get full custody of Faith.
