Co-founder of Forrester Creations
It was Stephanie's family fortune that provided the seed money for Forrester Creations. But family is a mixed bag -- she later discovered she'd spent years repressing the childhood beatings she suffered at her father's hands. Because she couldn't control that situation as a kid, she's devoted her entire adulthood to trying to control everything -- especially her own kids' lives.
She cloaks her slashing tongue with a queenly demeanor and is obsessed with loyalty and decency. Considering the depths she'll plumb when it comes to taking care of her kids, that's borderline delusional.
Forget the garden-variety guilt-tripping. With all her cover-ups, bribery, evidence-withholding, and attempted murders, Stephanie should either be serving hard time on a three-strikes conviction, or an honorary member of the Royal Family. Maybe the Medici family.
