Did The Bold and the Beautiful "Throw a Lot of Money" at Jacqueline MacInnes Wood to Stay on Contract?By Jamey Giddens on May 17, 2013
The backstage casting drama at CBS Daytime's The Bold and the Beautiful keeps getting juicier by the minute. A report in the May 27 issue of Soap Opera Digest claims Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy) was offered "a lot of money" to stay with the sudser. That's something you rarely hear about anymore, given these times of extreme budget crunching for soaps! Here's an excerpt:
"They threw a lot of money at her to get her to stay," relayes one setside source. "But she just thought it was the right time to go." READ MORE
I wonder why Alison (Princess Theodora) went old school with the camera she used to snap a pic of Maya (Karla Mosley) violating her parole with Jesse (Ricky Paull Goldin)? What, Spencer Publications can't spring for an iPhone?
Jesse told Maya (Karla Mosley) they should grab their daughter and get out of town. Maya broke the news their daughter had died in a car crash. Maya told her baby daddy they simply couldn't be together. READ MORE
Steffy, (Jacqueline MacInness Wood) still groggy and out of it, doesn’t seem to recall much of anything, not hopping on her motorcycle, not being married to Liam (Scott Clifton) and most certainly not being with child.
She did, however, want to know just how bad she was going to look in a bikini. Just where are we going with this?
Dr. Meade (Jon Hensley) told Liam he was going to call Bill (Don Diamont) and alert him to what had happened. I get that Dr. Meade has history with the family, but why is he taking it upon himself to call Bill? When he did call Bill, he claimed Liam asked him to. No he didn’t, Dr. Meade! Is this all just plot points to get Hensley more screen time, because there are much better ways.
Meade tried to tell Bill about Steffy losing the baby, but Bill was more concerned with getting to his son. Why is this doctor sharing information about his patient? Ever hear of confidentiality? READ MORE
