Five Soap Opera Feuds That Spilled Over Into Real Life!
No. 5: Hunter Tylo vs. Katherine Kelly Lang, The Bold and the Beautiful
Their characters, Dr. Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo) and Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang), have fought over the affections of fickle fashion designer Ridge Forrester (Ronn Moss) since 1990 on CBS Daytime's international hit serial The Bold and the Beautiful. However, Moss' recent exit from the series—after 25 years—inadvertently led to a real-life Twitter dust up between Tylo and Lang!
When a pot-stirring fan tweeted Lang accusations of Tylo allegedly failing to stop her fans from spreading "vicious rumors/gossip" about Lang, the blonde soap beauty called her brunette co-star out, tweeting: "Hunter, why don't you talk to me?" Ouch!
Tylo responded quickly, denying the messy fan's claims and asked Lang not to get "caught up in the chaos." The fact that Lang was so quick to believe an accusation from a fan makes you wonder, what is really going on up in the House of Forrester?
No. 4: Victoria Rowell vs. Michelle Stafford, The Young and the Restless
It was the "spittake" seen around the world — or at the very least, discussed ad nauseum throughout the soap blogosphere! When former The Young and the Restless siren Victoria Rowell (Drucilla) exclusively revealed to Daytime Confidential the backstage beef between Rowell and co-star Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), fans were stunned.
All along we'd thought Drucilla Winters and Phyllis Summers' corporate rivalry ended once the Y&R director yelled "Cut!" Rowell's most shocking claim—that "The Staff" had purposefully spat on her during a heated scene—divided fans into two camps, those who felt Stafford's acting choice was an example of the classic "spittake", and those who felt the flame-haired star's move to drench Rowell with water was done out of spite. Four years later the topic can still set a soap message board on fire!
Meanwhile, droves of fans still wish for the day Dru will claw her way back up that cliff to tangle with Phyllis once again. Only this time, let's make sure no water glasses are on set!
