Steffy and her fraternal twin sister Phoebe were born to Taylor Hamilton and Ridge Forrester. She was named after her paternal grandmother, Stephanie Douglas. She has an older brother named Thomas and she has a younger half-brother named R.J from Ridge Forrester and a younger Legal Maternal half-brother named Jack Marone from Brooke Forrester. Steffy has one daughter, Kelly Spencer and a deceased son Aspen Forrester-Spencer both with Liam Spencer. She is currently expecting her third child with the father, which is her new lover John "Finn" Finnegan.
Early Teen Years
In 2002, Taylor was "killed" in an altercation with Sheila Carter. After a period of mourning, Ridge remarried Brooke Logan. Brooke and Taylor are enemies and fought over Ridge for many years. They didn't know that Taylor's former husband, Prince Omar Rashid of Morocco replaced Taylor's body with a wax dummy and healed the real Taylor at his palace. When Taylor reappeared in 2005, Ridge returned to her, reuniting his children with their mother. The following year, Taylor revealed that long ago she had slept with James Warwick, which torpedoed her marriage to Ridge. Steffy and Phoebe left to attend boarding school in London, although Phoebe returned by herself in 2006.
Return to L.A. in Adulthood
In 2008, Steffy arrived home determined to work her way up at Forrester Creations . She started in the shipping department, where she met Marcus Forrester. When Donna Logan took over at Forrester, Steffy dug up dirt and found out that Donna was Marcus' birth mother. Though Ridge disapproved of Steffy dating Donna's son, things went well until Rick Forrester got control of the company himself and sent Marcus to Forrester International so Steffy would be available.
Romance with Rick
Rick had been dating Phoebe but slept with her mother Taylor. Phoebe found out and became enraged leading to an angry confrontation in Rick's car. Phoebe lashed out at Rick and the car crashed causing Phoebe's death. Ridge, who didn't like Rick from the beginning, was enraged and blamed Rick for Phoebe's death. Steffy also blamed Rick initially, but bonded with him over their shared grief eventually leading to a kiss. Marcus returned and wanted to marry Steffy who, by that time, was more interested in Rick. When the secret relationship was exposed, Ridge fumed because of Rick's part in Phoebe's death, and Steffy found the entire family against her including her brother Thomas who almost killed Rick in an explosion that was meant to scare him. Steffy agreed to marry Rick, but he resented Ridge's treatment of Brooke over the years and only proposed to Steffy to hurt Ridge and ruin his marriage to Brooke. Rick boasted about it to Ridge who was secretly recording the conversation. Steffy dumped Rick after hearing it but briefly took him back before finally realizing that their relationship would never withstand all the family opposition. Marcus later tried unsuccessfully to revive things with Steffy.
Attempts To End Bridge/Tridge Love Triangle
Steffy was thrilled when Ridge ended up going back to Taylor on his own. But as their wedding approached, Steffy faked text messages to Brooke to make sure the marriage happened. Brooke found out and stopped the wedding, cementing her place as Steffy's enemy. Steffy was attracted to Owen Knight, who was married to Jackie Payne. Owen was tempted by Steffy's overtures, but remained faithful to Jackie.
Dalliance with Bill
Bill Spencer Jr. acquired Forrester Creations and Steffy became intrigued by the older man. Steffy earned a promotion to Head of Public Relations. Bill was engaged to Katie Logan, but had an undeniable attraction to Steffy and didn't mind when she kissed him. Steffy was disappointed when Bill married Katie and outraged when he made her CEO of Forrester. When Katie gave her sisters leadership positions in the company, Steffy launched an all out war against the entire Logan family. Using the attraction between herself and Bill she arranged a seduction and swiped Katie's engagement ring from Bill's bedroom before any lovemaking could take place. Steffy threatened to tell Katie how she got the ring if Bill didn't sign the company over to her. Steffy edged the Logans out by dividing the company's stock equally between Ridge, Stephanie, Eric Forrester and Taylor.
Exposing the "Broliver" Scandal and Rivalry with Hope
Stepping up her battle against the Logans, Steffy tried to seduce Oliver Jones, the boyfriend of her step-sister, Hope Logan. Oliver didn't bite, but Steffy did manage to publicly embarrass Hope at a showing for her Hope For The Future fashion line by rigging the sign to read "Ho" For The Future. When Oliver inadvertently videotaped Brooke's daughter, Bridget cheating on her husband, Steffy wanted to use the footage to hurt Brooke's family, but Oliver talked her out of it. Instead, Steffy went for the jugular after Brooke "accidentally" had sex with Oliver at Hope's graduation party, where everyone wore masks
Steffy told Brooke she wouldn't go public about the tryst if Brooke left Forrester and sent Hope away to college. Oliver also had to date Steffy. Brooke diffused Steffy's bomb by telling Ridge about Oliver herself. A forgiving Ridge forced Steffy to craft a video tribute to Brooke. Computer tech Liam Spencer mistakenly recorded Steffy talking to Ridge about Brooke's betrayal. Justin Barber, Liam's boss at Spencer Publications, coerced Liam into augmenting Steffy's video with the recording, betting that Brooke's latest scandal would help sell magazines. Ridge fired Steffy when the video went public, but Steffy got Liam to help clear her name. Taylor demonstrated her faith in her daughter by gifting her with her 25% share in Forrester. Angry with Ridge, Steffy momentarily considered selling her stock to Bill, who still wanted the company.
Thomas' interest in Brooke
Steffy transferred to Forrester International after making a few moves on Liam, who had started dating Hope. Steffy came home with Bill Spencer on her mind. She recalled their flirtations and declared that she was a better match for Bill than Katie. Steffy claimed to understand Bill's motivation after saving Amber Moore from Bill's murder plot, which prompted Katie to walk out. Later, she desperately asked Bill for help when Thomas went missing at sea. Bill declared his love for Steffy after the rescue brought them closer, but he refused to leave Katie. Steffy was overjoyed when Ridge divorced Brooke and planned to remarry Taylor upon learning that Thomas and Brooke had sex on a deserted island while hopped up on psychedelic berries. Ridge later returned to Brooke when it turned out Thomas lied about the encounter because Stephanie promised him her stock.
The Beginning of "Steam"
Feeling abandoned, Steffy sought comfort in Bill's arms. Bill promised to leave Katie, but Katie had a heart attack when Taylor exposed the affair. Devastated when Bill decided to stay with Katie, Steffy slipped in her bathtub and almost drowned. She was saved by Liam (who had stopped by to return his key) and developed an attraction to him. As time wore on, Liam and Steffy developed a mutual attraction towards one another that blossomed into love. Liam found his relationship with Hope less than fulfilling considering her obsession with being a "role-model" for abstinence and remaining celibate until marriage, something Liam did not agree with. Liam, who was growing increasingly more sexually frustrated, found spending time with Steffy refreshing and fulfilling. He enjoyed being able to have a stimulating relationship with a woman that was both emotionally rich and had the possibility of physical intimacy, though he decided to stay committed, at least physically, to Hope. One day Liam gave into his feelings and kissed Steffy which Hope saw. Hope left her engagement ring on Liam's mantle and broke up with him via cellphone. Liam found the ring and proposed to Steffy. Sick of Hope's immaturity and taking her desire for Liam into her own hands, Steffy decided to take Liam for herself and accepted. They spent their first night together. Steffy offered to let him out of the engagement, but Liam refused. Steffy went to Bill to tell him about the engagement,he he arranged a trip to Aspen, Colorado for her and Liam. Hope found out and followed. Hope was locked in a gondola above a ski slope, planned by Bill and Steffy and was forced to watch Steffy and Liam exchange vows. Sensing that Liam was still undecided about his feelings, Bill sent him and Steffy to Cabo San Lucas. Coincidentally, Hope (who had been spending time with Thomas) ended up at the same resort. Steffy and Thomas worked to keep Liam and Hope from seeing each other, but the attempt backfired, leading to an ATV chase in which Steffy was seriously injured. At the hospital, Liam wanted an annulment when a guilt ridden Steffy confessed her deceptions in Aspen and Cabo. Bill faked Steffy's MRI so it said she had a blood clot that could become fatal under stress. Liam felt obligated to stay with Steffy, but Katie got suspicious and eventually uncovered Bill's machinations. Steffy was horrified that Bill would make her parents think she was going to die. She held out for a proper divorce from Liam, feeling an annulment would invalidate her genuine love for Liam. Mch to Hope's chagrin, Liam agreed. They also continued to grow closer.
Rick tried to used his past with Steffy and manipulate her into signing the annulment papers. Steffy outsmarted Rick and instead wrote "loser" in place of a signature, halting Liam and Hope's wedding. Steffy was sure Liam would be back if she waited it out. Steffy created a ski line and attended Aspen's Fashion Week, which also brought Liam out to cover the event. Hope made the trip as well, but she was abusing anti-anxiety medication in order to be with Liam and was so strung out when she went skiing that she crashed into Steffy and left her on the trail. Liam was furious and stayed by Steffy's side in the hospital where she had a change of heart and signed the annulment papers. When Liam tore them up, ad kissed her, Steffy realized she still had a chance, and they continued grow close. Liam invited Steffy over the night the the six month divorce wait was up, but Hope Hope called wearing a wedding dress, and Steffy ultimately told Liam to marry Hope.
Hope and Liam's Invalid Wedding
Having forged a tentative truce with Hope, Steffy hesitated accepting an invitation to Hope's wedding in Puglia, Italy. Bill realized that Liam still had unresolved feelings, and hinted the tide could turn in Steffy's favor, so Steffy attended. Steffy was at Liam's side when he found a note that implied Hope had jilted him, so Liam kissed Steffy and prepared to go away with her on the Spencer jet. Hope later returned and explained that the appearance of her estranged father, Deacon Sharpe, had delayed her. Steffy watched the ceremony from afar, but slipped and fell into the Adriatic Sea. She was furious when she discovered that Bill had sprung Deacon Sharpe from jail in an attempt to push Liam back toward Steffy. An iPad had accidentally recorded video of Liam and Steffy making out in Italy. Steffy deleted it but first e-mailed a copy to herself. One day Hope saw the video and declared she hated Steffy before insisting on a fresh wedding to Liam. The night before the ceremony, Liam hung out with Steffy, having followed her to a him to a club, and had a great time together. They woke on the roof of the club, and Liam was sporting dyed hair and a tattoo. Steffy dropped off the very late and hung-over Liam at the wedding venue. Hope heard the motorcycle and realized Steffy had delivered Liam, and then after seeing him, she called off the wedding and dumped him. Bill angrily advised Liam to forget her after Liam humiliated himself by begging, and he sought out Steffy, who he viewed as his best friend. Steffy took him to a bungalow on Brooke's property where she had spent time with Ridge as a child to talk. After talking, Steffy and Liam made love which Donna Logan saw and reported back to Bill and Brooke.
Steffy and Liam's flight to Hawaii was diverted to Aspen when Bill and Brooke needed the Spencer jet to look for Katie, who had disappeared during a bout with postpartum depression. Steffy helped Liam look after his new baby brother, Will. When it was evident Katie wasn't in Aspen, Steffy and Liam found time to go parasailing together. Returning to Los Angeles, Liam asked Steffy to move in with him. Steffy agreed, but kept her penthouse loft in an effort to maintain some independence. Ridge, who had relocated to Paris, wanted Steffy to visit. Steffy and Liam made love and Steffy later found out she was pregnant. Steffy rushed to tell Liam but spied Liam kissing Hope in their bedroom. When Taylor found her pregnancy test, Steffy swore her mother to secrecy. Liam and Steffy were happy together until Hope saw them at a party for Stephanie, and got jealous.
Hope went to Liam and Steffy's home, began throwing Steffy's belongings around, and demanded that Liam leave Steffy because they are destiny. Steffy came home but saw them kissing through the window and left. Steffy told Liam he could use the time she was away to explore his residual feelings for Hope, as long as he didn't cross the line. When Steffy flew home to tell Liam about their baby, she decided to keep mum after Liam asked for more time to decide between she and Hope and asked Steffy to move out. Later, during a heated argument with Hope- Hope shoved Steffy into a desk causing her to hit her belly on it.
2nd Marriage to Liam
When Taylor accompanied her to her sonogram, Steffy's unborn child did not appear to be harmed. Steffy and Taylor found out that Brooke had planned an ambush wedding for Hope and Liam, which Steffy stopped with the announcement of her pregnancy. Brooke, of all people, accused her of lying then Steffy silenced her with her sonogram. When Liam chose to make a home with Steffy and their baby, she offered to let Liam go if he wasn't absolutely sure. Steffy was thrilled when Taylor announced that Eric had agreed to have the wedding in the Forrester courtyard. Unlike Steffy's Aspen wedding to Liam, Steffy's family was in attendance (except for Ridge). Steffy shocked them all by riding up the aisle on a motorcycle, wearing a black dress/suit ensemble that she had gotten Eric to design. Liam surprised her by having her "all-time favorite" singer, Julia Michaels, perform at the reception. Steffy then correctly guessed that Liam had arranged for their honeymoon to be in Aspen, and she and Liam even considered naming their child Aspen in honor of their favorite place.
Liam and Steffy gleefully bought baby clothes and picked out colors for the nursery. She then paid a visit to Thomas, who had moved into Taylor's old beach house with Oliver. Steffy told Thomas how happy she and Liam were, unaware that a tearful Hope was within earshot. She empathized with Hope and was so moved when Hope broke down and admitted she was happy for Steffy that she hugged her rival. Not wanting to keep Liam waiting, Steffy decided to dodge a traffic jam by riding her motorcycle home though she had promised Liam she wouldn't ride while pregnant. A car darted in front of her which caused her to wipe out. Having suffered another concussion (on top of the concussions she'd had before), Steffy didn't remember being pregnant. But with Liam's coaching, she put the pieces together and was horrified to learn she had lost their baby. As Steffy slid into a deep depression, Taylor begged her not to blame herself for riding the motorcycle. She took a baseball bat to the bike and latched on immediately when Taylor suggested that Steffy and Liam have another baby.
Katie was badgering Steffy to leave Hope and Liam alone which led Steffy to faint so Katie took her to the hospital to see Dr. Caspary. Steffy was told a botched D&C procedure had rendered her unable to have more children. She refused to tell Liam about her infertility and swore Katie to secrecy. After spending the night alone in her loft to think, Steffy announced she was moving to Paris and told Liam she wanted a divorce, cryptically insisting that Hope could give him something she couldn't. In Paris, Steffy ignored Liam's voice mails and texts and was surprised weeks later when Liam showed up on her doorstep wanting answers. Steffy eventually broke down and admitted she couldn't conceive again, but rejected Liam's suggestions of adoption or surrogacy. Steffy stood her ground about him returning to Hope. As Liam left, Steffy thought better of it and tried to catch him in the hallway, but she was too late.
Later, she notified Liam by e-mail that she would only accept a divorce and not an annulment, meaning Liam (who had moved on with Hope) would have to wait six months before marrying her. Steffy continued to communicate with Liam, ultimately changing her mind and agreeing to his request for an annulment so he could wed Hope.
Fertile Again and Persuaded by Quinn
Steffy returned to L.A. for a doctors appointment and came to see her grandfather Eric again where she met Quinn. Quinn gets a smile to see Steffy. While Steffy was getting on her plane to fly back to Paris, Quinn told Eric she'd meet at Forrester International in Paris and catch the flight with Steffy. Quinn arrives on the jet and convinces Steffy to break up Hope and Liam. Quinn continues to persuade Steffy to go back to Los Angeles and reunite with Liam so Hope can be with Wyatt, but Steffy shows no interest of going back and Quinn is told of how Steffy tragically miscarried Liam's child after a motorcycle accident. Once settled in at Forrester International, Quinn overhears Steffy on the phone with Dr. Caspary in which she informs Steffy that after several medical procedures is finally able to conceive a child to full term. Quinn again tries to convince Steffy that she should go back and reunite with Liam as well as deliver the news that she is able to conceive again. Steffy once again shows no interest of going back to Los Angeles, but can't hide her feelings she still has for Liam. Liam also gave Hope an ultimatum and she chose to be with Liam and Liam made her cut ties with Wyatt and Quinn from Forrester. Eric disagreed with this after Quinn put her spin on the whole situation.
Quinn convinces Steffy to go back to L.A. and to meet with Liam in the cabin. Quinn leaves a note in Hope's bedroom before her wedding with Liam that Liam wanted her to meet him in the cabin despite tradition. Steffy backed away when Liam saw her through the window and he brought her in to talk. Steffy told Liam the great news in which he was happy for her. Hope trailed down and saw them talking and called off the wedding running off. Hope flew to Hawaii with Wyatt and rehired Quinn Artisans Jewelry. Hope remained loyal to Wyatt and Steffy flew back to Paris. Ridge and R.J. then moved back to L.A. shortly after. Hope later marries Wyatt in Milan, when Hope was supposed to marry Liam in Paris, but Quinn pushed Ivy Forrester into the Seine, forcing Liam to save her, and be too late in meeting Hope. Hope miscarried Wyatt's baby and said goodbye to Liam & telling him she would always love him & explaining she was not being able to stay in LA because of all the pain she had incurred there especially the miscarriage so she left for Milan to be with Brooke, and Wyatt later did the same but Hope told him to go back to LA which he did. Liam shortly thereafter started a relationship with Ivy.
Return to L.A. and Controlling Forrester Creations
Forrester Creations was at war with Rick as CEO after Caroline and Ridge's affair. Liam told Bill he wants to take over Forrester Creations. Bill asked Liam how is he going to do that and Liam stated he was married to her. Bill was thrilled Liam wanted to use Steffy and Liam stated she's in L.A. because he followed her online post. Liam called Steffy and explained he wanted to meet with her and Steffy stated at his house. Steffy appeared at Liam's remembering all the great memories they've shared. Steffy asked if he missed her and he stated how could he. Liam asked Steffy if her and Ridge are still talking and she didn't reply but stated she talked to Hope. Liam asked how she was and Steffy stated some topics don't come up. Steffy then stated she never replaced that motorcycle. Liam and Steffy continued to talk and laugh. Liam explained he wants to take over Forrester Creations with her. Bill owns part of the company and Steffy and Thomas own a part that combined equals 30%. Liam told Steffy together they can take over Forrester Creations. Steffy was hesitant. Steffy and Liam reminisced about all their memories and hugged on the couch when Ivy came home from shopping. Ivy was a bit jealous and Steffy excitedly greeted Ivy who was equally happy to see her. Before Steffy left, Liam told her to keep it in mind which she agreed to. Liam and Bill got Wyatt in on the plan but were shocked he quit after Rick gave him attitude. Liam and Bill explained the plan and made Wyatt ask Rick for his job back. Steffy told Liam she couldn't do it. Liam convinced her she's strong, and independent, and a fighter! Steffy admit she can't come to work seeing him every day with Ivy, and he's doing this for Ivy not her! Steffy admit she's still in love with him! Liam stated he's moved on to Ivy and Steffy refused to go through with it. Liam told Ivy about the plan and the fact that Steffy's still in love with him. Ivy supported the plan. Liam told Bill that Ivy's on the plan and Bill got enraged that Liam tell another Forrester. Ivy told Steffy she supports the plan and wants her to control Forrester Creations. Steffy stated her father might still want to run the company and Caroline and Ridge might even be enough to motivate her. Ivy asked if there was another roadblock. Steffy stated the fact that she's still in love with Liam. Steffy stated all their history and she left after the miscarriage. Steffy insisted if she comes back, she comes back to it all. Steffy then congratulated Rick on his CEO position. Bill convinced Liam to dump the plant and go back to Steffy, the woman he was always meant to be with. Steffy then warned him she likes that chair.
After Ivy left Liam's beach house, he called Steffy to meet him there. Steffy arrived at Liam's in a skimpy bikini and a towel around her waist which she took off. Liam was very attracted and Steffy stated she misses LA'S water so much. Paris only has one river, which nobody swims in, well except for Ivy. Steffy kept trying to convince Liam to go swimming in the ocean even when Liam stated how cold the temperature was but they decided to go have fun. They came back from their swim, Liam stated how much he misses her, and Steffy kissed Liam. Steffy explained if he wants to run Forrester with her, they have to be lovers. Liam tried explaining to Steffy he's in love with her cousin. Steffy explained she can't do this without their relationship and Liam stated any man would want to be with her. Steffy kissed Liam on the couch and then laid him down and made out with him on top of him when Ivy arrived in the doorway. Ivy hid to the side and eavesdropped. Liam turned her down because of Ivy. Steffy was adamant about the deal but Liam stated they can do this another way. Ivy talked to Liam about what she overheard and Liam stated he loves her. Ivy had words with Steffy. Steffy explaining she and Liam have history, and Ivy explaining she thought Steffy would be a fun person to hang out with coming back to L.A., but this was unbelievable. Ridge tells Steffy that Liam told him the plan about Forrester. Liam told Ridge that Bill would sell his shares to him, so Bill would have no part of the company. Ridge stated Steffy still loves Liam and she admit she does. Ridge's main concern was the plan would be putting Eric out of business. Steffy stated it's the only thing to do with Rick. ridge stated Eric loved him and treated him just like a son. Steffy stated Eric is favoring his brother now. Steffy was explaining to Ridge in his apartment that she is leaving for Paris, at least for now, when Caroline arrived home. Before Steffy left back for Paris, she civilly said goodbye to Ridge and Caroline.
After Eric wouldn't appoint Ridge as CEO, Ridge called Steffy on the phone to meet him at Forrester. Steffy arrived informed that Maya is transgender and Eric won't remove Rick as CEO. Ridge insisted he needed Steffy and him to be a team to take over Forrester and she agreed. Ridge insisted this is bigger than her getting Liam back and him getting CEO. Rick arrived in his office giving them a hard time. Ridge called Liam to meet him at Forrester. Liam was happy to see Steffy and she was also pleased. Ridge convinced Liam to use Steffy's, Thomas's, Bill's controlled by Liam, and Thomas's to overpower Eric. Steffy stated there are no conditions this time. Liam agreed and Ridge insisted to Eric that they're taking over while Eric insisted he's in charge which Ridge stated he's in charge now. Ridge was the new CEO, with Steffy president, and Liam vice president, which he is also at Spencer's. Steffy and Liam agreed they would make a great team. Liam stated Steffy's change like a cool mountain stream. They remembered their time in Aspen by a stream. Steffy stated she is not afraid to state that she loves him and will always love him with Ivy overhearing.
Rick and Eric were getting nervous that Steffy, Ridge, and Liam were going to use Ridge's, Steffy's, Thomas's, and Bill's shares to take over Forrester Creations. Rick came to Bill to make a business proposition. Rick tried convincing Bill to use his shares to his and Eric's advantage and he'll have more control around the company. In the middle of the meeting in Rick's office, Bill barged in explaining their deal and his predicament. Bill explained he doesn't like the way Ridge treats him. Bill asked Ridge and Rick to convince him why he should take their side. Bill commended Liam for protecting Caroline and Ivy. Ultimately, Bill chose to side with Rick under one condition, Maya, the face of Forrester Creations, has to go. Rick punched Bill and withdrew from the deal. Ridge became the new CEO with Steffy president and Liam vice president. Steffy and Liam were congratulating with champagne when Aly Forrester saw Steffy kiss Liam. Aly came by to confront Steffy about throwing herself at Liam. Steffy claimed it was a congratulatory kiss. Aly warned Steffy to leave Ivy and Liam's relationship alone. Aly claimed Ivy is a good model for Forrester Creations with morals. Meanwhile, Ivy told Liam she was encouraging Wyatt to ask Steffy out. Wyatt stated any man would fall in love with Steffy because she's incredibly intelligent and beautiful.
Wyatt was friendly with Steffy that they're both trying to get over similar situations. Wyatt started flirting with Steffy stating she's beautiful and intelligent and she should give him a chance. Wyatt kissed Steffy. Wyatt insisted he doesn't play second to his brother.
Quinn questions his love life and mentions Hope and Maya's little sister went south. Wyatt explained Nicole was fun but there might be a new woman in his life. Quinn was asking questions. Wyatt turned Steffy's picture around on Ridge's desk. Quinn was shocked but then stated "She's so hot!" Wyatt explained he told her to give them a chance, right after he kissed her.
Steffy stopped over at Liam's and explained that there might be another man in her life. Liam was bothered by this and asked who and Steffy stated he works at Forrester and has his last name. Liam was upset that out of all people it was Wyatt. Steffy stated that Wyatt kissed her and she just enjoyed it. Steffy stated there's only one person she wants to kiss, if he still wants her. Liam admit he has been feeling those feelings about Steffy again. Ivy walked in eavesdropping hearing Liam tell Steffy he'll help Ivy understand over dinner tonight. Ivy was heartbroken and ran out crying. Quinn convinced Ivy to ask Liam to marry her so she won't be deported. Liam told Ivy he wants to help her understand something but Ivy stated she already knows. Liam wants Steffy back and Ivy mentioned she's being deported. Liam was shocked and angered. Ivy informed him that her father filled out the paperwork incorrectly. She has a week to pack her bags for Australia. And she'd have to register for another passport which could take months or years if that. Liam stated he wished there was another way and Ivy stated maybe there is. Ivy asked him to marry her, to which he agreed. They were married on June 16, 2015. However, when Steffy found out about the marriage, she was furious because she felt that Liam had created a situation where they could never be together. Steffy said she's done with Liam because she won't share him with another woman again, especially not his wife! Steffy was enraged and rushed to the Forrester rooftop lounge where Wyatt comforted her and kissed her.
Agent McCaffrey returned to Liam and Ivy's to inform Ivy that they made a mistake. Ivy does indeed have dual citizenship, married to Liam or not. Ivy was worried about telling Liam he doesn't have to be married to her because of his feelings for Steffy. Quinn convinced Ivy not to tell him since he married her because he loves her. Ivy stated he doesn't love her the same way he loves Steffy. Ivy explained to Liam that he didn't have to marry her, she always had dual citizenship, and they made a huge mistake. Liam hugged Ivy. Liam rushed to Steffy with the information. Steffy didn't want him to explain anything at first but after he did she had mixed feelings. She was still mad that he married her in the first place. Ivy confronted Liam when Steffy questioned his intentions. Liam admits to Ivy he wants an annulment. Ivy explained she understands that they have history and she can't compete with memories. Steffy explained to Liam if he still feels anything for Ivy, she won't do this again.
Ivy confided in Aly who was uninformed about the surprise wedding. Aly went to confront Steffy who was having Liam feel her lingerie for the line. Aly snapped at Steffy claiming they replaced a tyrant with a slut. Liam stated Aly's out of line but Aly kept trying to convince Liam that he can't do this to Ivy and he married her because he loves her. Liam stated Aly's out of line. Liam left and Steffy changed back into her dress. Aly wouldn't drop it and Steffy mentioned Aly's "issues". Aly stated he issue is that Steffy's mother killed her mother. Steffy was shocked and stated Aly forgave her mother because she was there. Aly stated she was persuaded to say the words but she could never forgive Taylor for killing her mother. Steffy took the situation delicately and explained it was an accident. Aly blasted both of them by saying Taylor and Steffy are both sluts and use their sexuality to get whatever they want. As Steffy was trying to help Aly, Aly envisioned Aly saying the words "drunken mother" and "get rid of her". Steffy tried snapping Aly out of it. Steffy just figured they should stay away from each other. As Steffy was trying to work things out with Aly, Ridge stopped in to mention the meeting is in ten minutes. Aly asked if she could come and Ridge allowed her to. Ridge announced that Hope For The Future is over which offended Aly. Ridge announced to everybody the new line "California Freedom" which uses a lot of the morals and dignity of Hope For The Future but encourages women to be free with lines including lingerie and swimwear. Aly stated she'd expect this from Steffy but not Ridge. Aly asked if Steffy was going to model for the lingerie and Aly snapped at ridge for letting his daughter being viewed in underwear. Aly went off about the morals that her grandmother and grandfather instilled in this company and how they're being forgotten. Everybody else agreed it was a good idea and tried to placate Aly. Aly ended the meeting with irrelevantly bashing Steffy for killing Darla. Steffy tried to get through to Aly once again.

Feud with Sally Spectra
Knowing Liam was becoming increasingly frustrated over Eric and Quinn pushing Wyatt on her, Steffy finally got her divorce from Wyatt, only to learn Liam had headed to the airport. Steffy stopped Liam from getting on a plane with her divorce news and happily accepted Liam's proposal. Steffy was intrigued by Ivy's suggestion that she and Liam marry in Australia in a double wedding with Ridge and Brooke, but butted heads with Rick and Thomas after she was asked to split her CEO duties with Ridge instead of one of them.
Steffy made an instant enemy in fledgling designer Sally Spectra, the namesake grandniece of infamous knockoff queen Sally Spectra. Goaded into a public food fight with Sally, Steffy was furious to learn that Sally, who was planning her first showing, had staged the altercation and uploaded a viral video of it to piggyback on Steffy's social media presence. Catching Sally masquerading as a caterer at the wedding of her cousin Zende Forrester Dominguez, Steffy got back at Sally by shoving her face into a cake but was further annoyed when that contretemps ended up online, too.
Wedding in Australia

Still disapproving of Thomas' relationship with Sally, Steffy brought Thomas' ex-love and mother of his child, Caroline Spencer back from New York to lure him away from Sally.
Steffy became concerned when Eric took off after a fight with Quinn; learning that Eric was with Sheila Carter, his notorious criminal ex-wife who was responsible for Taylor's near-death, Steffy grabbed an old gun of Stephanie's and got Liam to track Eric's phone. Having been told by Quinn that Sheila might have a gun in her purse, Steffy shot Sheila when she thought Sheila was reaching for it, not knowing Sheila was trying to produce the electric razor Eric had sent her for. Steffy apologized for grazing Sheila's arm and was surprised when Sheila helped them lie to authorities about what went on. Steffy fumed when she learned the reason Eric was holed up in a hotel was because Ridge and Quinn had kissed on several occasions, blasting them both.

Spectra won the duel by popular vote, but Bill decided to call it a tie out of bitterness against Spectra.
