Bold And The Beautiful Characters You'd Hate To Know In Real Life

On "The Bold and the Beautiful," there are characters you love to hate and then still others that you hate to hate. Both the characters you love to and the ones you may just plain hate might be entertaining on-screen, but if you ever walked into the fictional Los Angeles fashion world the show brings fans day and day out, five days a week or if these characters ever walked through your televisions and into your living room, you might have a problem with them.

Do you really want to know some of these people in real life or are they better off causing trouble — sometimes without really meaning to — in the soap opera world where you wouldn't want to even have a cup of coffee with them for a brief 20 minutes? Sometimes soaps will give you characters who you want to be besties with — and sometimes you're given characters you want to stay as far away from as possible.

Liam Spencer and his wishy-washy waffling ways

The character of Liam Spencer was conceived as a hero, but he doesn't do many heroic things and even Scott Clifton, who has played Liam for more than a decade and won multiple Emmy awards for the role, admits this. When Liam mistook a mannequin for his wife and found Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) kissing the mannequin that looked just like Hope Logan Spencer (Annika Noelle), he ran right to his ex, Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), got drunk, slept with her, and then learned Hope was not cheating on him at all (via Soap Hub). In fact, Clifton expressed his disappointment with and disdain for his character on Twitter.

"For the record: OF COURSE I want to choke Liam as much as y'all do. He's become a terrible person," Clifton tweeted. "But my job is to find a way to motivate and humanize Liam's choices. I can't change the story our writers want to tell; I can only try my best to make it evocative and real."

But that night was just par for the course with Liam. After the confusion over who Steffy's baby daddy was when she turned up pregnant, Liam went on to accidentally kill Thomas' best friend, Vinny (Joe LoCicero), when he ran him down with his car. Liam passed out from the shock and his passenger, dad Bill Spencer (Don Diamont), convinced him to leave the scene and cover up a hit and run, which brings us to another character we'd certainly hate to know in real life.

Dollar Bill Spencer cannot stay with just one woman

Just like his son, Liam, Dollar Bill Spencer, the publishing magnate who at times cares more about building skyscrapers than he does his own children, Bill can never make up his mind which woman he wants. With Liam constantly torn between step sisters Hope and Steffy, Bill has found himself torn between sisters Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Katie Logan (Heather Tom). He married both of them, has a son with Katie, almost had her back, but then, he kissed Brooke. Bill has been trying to win Katie back ever since that kiss but to no avail (via Soaps In Depth).

That didn't stop him from convincing Liam to leave Vinny's body on the side of the road and then driving Liam insane with guilt as he insisted they could never let the police know what happened. Eventually, both Liam and Bill ended up behind bars until they learned Vinny purposely threw himself in front of Liam's car in some of misguided suicidal act. When Liam and Bill were released from jail, Liam continued telling his wife what she can and can't do and Bill continued barking orders to anyone who would listen while Katie still refused to take him back.

Sheila Carter has taken her evil ways from soap to soap

Since her days on "The Young and the Restless" in the 1990s to her various stints on "The Bold and the Beautiful," there is never any doubt with fans that Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) is a villain, according to Soaps In Depth. She has kidnapped babies, started fires to kill her enemies, including her own mother, and shot anyone who gets in her way, including Taylor Hayes (Krista Allen) and Brooke Forrester. As of this writing, her vendetta against Brooke is consuming all her thoughts, so she chose to make sure the alcoholic Brooke drank champagne on New Year's Eve when she switched out her non-alcoholic drink with the real deal (via

Taylor Hayes, who wanted to believe Sheila had changed, even tried to befriend her, but is now realizing she's as evil as ever and Brooke might be in danger. Sheila is a character who easily becomes obsessive and she is now obsessed with making sure Taylor wins Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) back and she doesn't care who she hurts to make that happen.

Quinn Fuller can't decide if she wants to be good or bad

When Quinn Fuller (Rena Sofer) first arrived on the fictional Forrester Los Angeles scene, she was definitely on the level of Sheila Carter in that she would do anything to get what she wanted. She even pushed Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan) off a cliff and kidnapped Liam when he had amnesia, making him believe she was his wife, Eve, telling his name was Adam. This went on for months until he got his memory back.

Even when Quinn seemed to reform after falling in love with and marrying Eric Forrester (John McCook), her jealousy of his relationship with Brooke got in the way, so she attempted to spike Brooke's drink. She also became jealous when Katie Logan (Heather Tom) moved next door and fantasized about killing her. And she even schemed with her best friend, Shauna Fulton (Denise Richards), to get Ridge drunk and illegally marry Shauna in a quickie Vegas wedding. After her schemes were discovered and Eric forgave her, Quinn didn't stop there. She then went on to play silly tricks on people like Paris Buckingham (Diamond White) when she put a laxative in her drink while Paris was on a date. And let's not forget her affair with Carter Walton (Lawrence Saint-Victor) that Eric also eventually forgave (via Soaps In Depth). When a woman does this many terrible things, it's hard to think you'd want to know this person in real life.
