The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers disclose that Eric Forrester’s (John McCook) health situation is much worse than he’s told his helpful grandson RJ Forrester (Joshua Hoffman).
RJ has been led to believe that Eric has arthritis in his hands, and that’s why he’s helping the patriarch design one last legacy fashion line.
The Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers – Eric Forrester’s Real Condition
Eric turned to RJ after his son Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) turned him down when he asked him to help him design his last, triumphant fashion collection.
Right now Ridge is acting like a toddler, thinking only of himself and challenging his dad to a fashion show-down, with the buyers choosing whose collection reigns supreme.
Ridge is downright disrespectful toward Eric, insisting he go play pickleball and leave the designing to him.
This storyline has all the earmarks of a major comeuppance as well as some heartbreak ahead.
Let’s break down what could really be going on with Eric. For starters, arthritis does not cause the type of hand tremors Eric is displaying.
Arthritis causes painful inflammation, but Eric’s hands are trembling which is why he can’t hold a pencil to sketch the designs in his head.

If it’s true he has this horrific disease, he may or may not have taken his SO, Donna Logan (Jennifer Gareis), into his confidence. At any rate, she and RJ are the only ones who are behind Eric 100%.
Eric is also desperate to create one more line to cement his legacy. It stands to reason that he is in a hurry if he knows he has a progressively debilitating disease like Parkinson’s.
If Eric is afflicted with this heartbreaking disease, RJ may discover his secret and be sworn to secrecy.
