SHOCKER: Ronn Moss QUITS The Bold and Beautiful Reportedly Over 'Salary Issues'!






Okay, this one came out of nowhere! Entertainment Weekly is reporting Ronn Moss is vacating the role of Ridge Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful.

Apparently Moss' exit comes amid tense contract negotiations. A rep for B&B confirmed the actor's exit stating:
 

“Ronn has spent an amazing 25 years with B&B,” a rep for Bell Phillip said in a statement. “We will always consider him family, and we wish him only the best in all of his future endeavors.”

I cannot imagine B&B without Ridge Forrester. The majority of frontburner storylines during the show's quarter of a century on the air have centered on the fashion scion played by Moss since 1987. Of course that all changed this past season when the show refocused itself around a triangle centered on Scott Clifton's Liam Spencer as the object of two women's affections. Here's hoping this move doesn't prove catastrophic for the internationally popular soap opera.

I hope he enjoys his life with his beautiful wife. He made his mark. Bradley Bell created the character of the waffler with whom women will degrade themselves on a constant basis to be with. His legacy will continue with the blank eyed, constipated looking Liam, who also juggles both of his ladies and never has to make a firm decision.

Bottom line. Brad knows how to write one kind of male character. He is the one who should leave the show. He has run out of ideas. Let someone else mind the store for awhile. He sucks.

No matter what you think of his acting (I was never in the party that criticized him either) you cannot refute the fact that this is a significant loss for the show. No matter how pushed back his character may have been for Liam/Hope/Steffy, he is still THE GUY on this show and the ratings are going to be hit hard and many older women are going to tune out without him.

That being said, let's look at the positives here. If this does not lead to a "night of passion" between Bill and Brooke, and a corresponding lengthy feud between Logan sisters Brooke and Katie, this show will miss the boat dearly.

OK Let's get the obvious out. Terrible actor but will be missed because the quartet that has been there the whole time was one reason B&B stayed strong.

More interesting to me is ... what is Moss thinking? I get taking a pay cut is unpleasant but I bet he is still well-paid and sorry to say but does anyone think he will get ANY other acting job, let alone such a regular and steady one, when he leaves? Even if he makes a little less, it will still be a LOT more than if he is unemployed.
I suspect some contract negotiating ploy here.

Hey, how about recasting with the now-available (and probably cheaper) Peter Reckell of DOOL fame? They're about the same age (Moss older by 3 years) and Reckell might look good opposite KKL.

Does that leave Drake Hogestyn as the worst actor on daytime TV?

That li'l "Praise Be!" moment has been brought to you by The_Moustache and Sears (which, ironically, is where most of those scarves came from).

LMAO, The_Mustache!

I haven't watched B&B for years, but I have to wonder:

Does this mean that Thorne will be allowed out of the basement?

I am utterly shocked!

I have wanted for this day to come for 10 years and now it has, only years too late. The reason why I am conflicted about this, is that this doesn't matter anymore. The power has already shifted long ago, Ridge hasn't been driving story for a long time. And this only proves it further. Even the "Fab Four" isn't sacred anymore Shock

I am not sad to see him gone but if this, like everything else, will only cater to the Unholy Trio of Steffy/Liam/Hope than it won't change the fact that B&B was The Show for me for 15 years, and now I dont watch it or have any interest in it.

I wonder if B&B will rethink the hasty decision with the Deacon Sharpe character now...

I'm still cracking up with those images, The_Moustache (LOL).

Let's see this as an opportunity. No more Tridge/Bridge love triangles, let's get Rick, Brooke and Thorne pitted against each other for the CEO position at Forrester. This has to be good for Winsor Harmon, as the only remaining child of Eric and Steph on the show he should now take centre stage.

Good for him and standing up for himself and his salary. The show could have easily have kept him by dropping half the cast that is useless from Dayzee and Marcus to Donna and Pam all the way to, dare I say it, Karen and her lover. The producers of daytime need to look at what they are writing and how they can tell compelling story that moves along at a nice pace but doesn't have to be about 20 or so people but a core group of cast members.

That being said, this show has yet to kill off a character like when they killed off Caroline way back when in the early days of the show. It lead to so many stories and the introduction of Taylor to the canvas. It would be spectacular for the show to kill Ridge off in GRAND SOAP FASHION instead of sending him off to Paris for work only to not see him again. The story of the grieving lovers and all the kids and the stories that could come from it ESPECIALLY for Brooke and Stephanie, along with Taylor are tremendous.

Let's hope that is the send off that the producers and the Bell's are giving Ridge so that we, the fans, can have closure with the character and become excited about the stories that will come from his "demise".
