B&B’s Brad Bell: “Sometimes When You Play With Fire, You Get Burned”


Aww sookie, sookie now! The Bold and the Beautiful's head writer/showrunner Brad Bell spilled the tea to TV Guide's  Michael Logan about Thomas' (Adam Gregory) attempts at pursuing Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and if it will make a comeback.

We are not backing off from the possibility of a Thomas-Brooke romance. This is a slow burn and we will continue to walk the tightrope with those two. Will we go there? Will it happen? We're going to be flirting with that for awhile. Sometimes when you play with fire you get burned.

Uh oh…  Seems like Thomas will get burned according to Logan, Ridge (Ronn Moss) discovers his son stole a kiss from his wife! The chiseled one won't take this lying down. March 7 is must see for B&B!

Not for nothing, but I am enjoying Thomas going after Dayzee (Kristolyn Lloyd). It did come out of nowhere, but I'd like to see it grow into something more. The reaction Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) gave when she heard about those two was priceless and could be explored into a juicy storyline. Picture it, Steffy and Marcus (Texas Battle) join forces and decide to break them up by constantly placing Thomas in situations with Brooke, in order to undermine her confidence in their relationship. The fallout with all involved could be fab-boosh, with Grandma Stephanie (Susan Flannery) learning how much of a hellcat her fav grandbaby is and deciding she needs to be reined in. Maybe viewers can discover it is just more than Dayzee's social status that Steffy hates. Just sayin'…

    I completely agree with you dkp. In fact, I posted a similar response somewhere on this discussion board. Yes, Thorne brought it up first, so it is definately a possibility. And I agree that Dayzee and Thomas have ZERO chemistry. To me, they are ZZZZZzzzzZZZZzzzz. So much more drama and story potential if they made him gay. For godsakes, Forrester Creations and Jackie M must be the only 2 fashion houses on the planet without ANY gay people!

    I was shocked when Thorne brought up the idea of Thomas being gay & at the time, I felt it probably wouldn’t lead to anything, cause gay characters just never seemed to be a priority of Brad’s. He has made statements in past about B&B not have gays is a ligitimate complaint, but nothing ever came of it. So simply the fact Brad is considering making Thomas gay, I consider a big step. I hope Brad goes there and makes Thomas gay. I’ve and many others have felt for a while (even when Drew was in the role) that Thomas should be gay. I don’t like the idea of Thomas and Brooke, and Thomas & Dayzee have zero chemistry (actually nobody in the Thomas/Dayzee/Marcus triangle has any chemistry IMO). I think a gay Thomas could bring lots of drama. He could still be like his dad, but instead of a womanizer, he can be man whore. LOL

    I don’t want Thomas to be gay i love him and Dayzee together they do have chemistry IMO but i do agree that they should have at least one gay character or lesbian. I have not watched B&B in a few years and i am only watching because i read about thomas and dayzee and it got me interested so i tuned in it is the only reason im wasting my time with the show everything else is boring to me.

    I don’t want Thomas to be gay either I like him and Dayzee I think they have a chemistry too more than that I like their “story” that’s what I watch for…

    I don’t think Adam Scott is the greatest actor on the block and that is a lot of what I’m seeing re: chemistry although he’s getting better and better for me

    ….I like the character (actor) so I’m waiting it out.

    I’m pretty sure the actor Adam Gregory is gay, and I’m hoping Thomas is gay too because he would look good with another guy.
