John McCook recently talked with fans of The Bold and the Beautiful via an online chat.
Regarding his character's relationship with Stephanie (Susan Flannery), McCook said: "Eric will never stop being connected to Stephanie but he does not like who he is when he is with her anymore. He's happier with someone who is not committing felonious acts and manipulating relationships all the time.
Eric thinks Donna is wonderful. He loves her. He is surprised by that and happy to be spending this time with her."
