That's Just My Baby Daddy: B&B's Donna's Mahogany Soulmate Heading To Town?



Could The Bold and the Beautiful's Marcus (Texas Battle) get a daddy soon? TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco reports Donna (Jennifer Gareis) may come face to face with her ex:

Insiders are buzzing that Bradley Bell will be casting Marcus’s father soon. Paging Shemar Moore (ex-Malcolm, Y&R)! Hey, I’ll settle for Réal Andrews (ex-Taggert, GH), who got shafted by One Life as Dr. Evans.

Does this mean CBS's finally getting with their diversity program? Stay tuned.

curacaoman,

B&B is way over the top with the faux-incest.

Brooke marrying Thorne was too much.

Rick and Steffy? That's just boring.

Do you remember when Rick was a good guy and married to Amber? Those were the days!

Now Rick is a twisted, narcissistic creep.

Then there's Stephanie. What a psycho.

I gave BB another try when Don Diamont joined the cast but he's already been backburned. I really don't see the point of adding any new characters when Bell will never get over his Ridge and Brooke fixation. There's not enough time to devote to any other storyline with so much of the airtime going to these characters. Most of the audience tired of the constant fawning over Ridge and Brooke years ago but Bell doesn't get it.

Brooke marrying Thorne was too much? Not her being with Eric and Nick as well? Heheheheh
And now her sister is with Eric, her daughter is with Nick, her son, who used to be Ridge's, is with Ridge's daughter?
Then there is Taylor who was/has been/will be with Ridge, Thorne and Nick. Who's next for her? Eric?
ICKKKKKK!

Rick was never thought to be Ridge's son. Only Bridget was assumed to be his daughter.

Taylor had a flirtation with Eric in the 90s. They eventually decided against a relationship since Stephanie was her best friend.

Great minds, Smitty. I was just about to share that very same information. Smile

By the way, I have always wondered what Stephaie would think of Taylor's "moral compass" if she knew of Taylor's flirtation with Eric?

Brad turn B&B into one of the most incestuous soaps ever and it is just nasty and the fans are tuning out. I am not getting too excited about Marcus because Texas can't act, he isn't bad but not a leading guy, so recast should be it. But AA characters doesn't last long on B&B and Brad can't write a decent s/l to save his life. And fans hate Donna and her sick honey obsession. I would bring Marcus's father into town and have him go after Brooke.

siomonstuart2003,

I like Donna. For God's sake, she's an angel compared to psycho Stephanie who can't decide who whether her ex-husband Eric or her son Ridge would be a better life partner for herself!

The real incest story is Stephanie's fixation with her son's sex life. She's 70 years old and is worried about whom her 50 year old son is bedding! Right?

Yep, there's a ton of faux-incest, but most of it happened after Brooke married Thorne. Then it went into overdrive!

Nick being with mother, daughter and sister is too much. What does it say about those women and their self-respect?

Unlike the P&G soaps, Brad Bell actually wants to keep B&B on the air since his family owns the show and it is a cash cow. Therefore, his destruction of the show is even scarier because he actually believes he and Kay Alden are writing great material!

Texas Battle is a little boring. Lawrence Saint-Victor, GL's Remy, would make a better Marcus from a charisma and acting perspective. But to be fair to Battle, he's an equal match to the actors' who portray Steffie and Rick.

You could pull three toothpicks from a box and they would mirror the wooden acting ability of Texas, Jacqueline, and Kyle.

B&B is adding so many people but with a 30 minute show, I don't see how they can use them all effectively. Also, have you noticed that all of the hires are men? Drew Tyler Bell, Rick Hearst, Don Diamont, and to-be-named Marcus' father.

I also agree that that it's time for the Ridge and Brooke show to end. We've been on that merry-go-round for 20 years. Pull the plug for 2 to 5 years.

Texas Battle and Jennifer Gareis do have similar facial structures. The shape of their eyes and the lines of their noses are similar. They do make convincing child and parent.

They are as convincing as Jack Wagner and Leslie Anne Down...in other words...not buying it

Smitty,

The difference is that Jack Wagner looks older than Leslie Anne Down. Battle does look younger than Gareis; and Battle and Gareis do have similar facial features.

Have you seen a picture of Victoria Rowell and her daughter Maya? Mother and daughter have similar bone structures. Victoria Rowell's daughter looks just like her except whereas Victoria has brown skin, Maya has white skin.

Here's a picture of Victoria and Maya:
