Emmy winner Lesli Kay is returning to As The World Turns, according to Soap Opera Digest. However, Kay will not be quitting her current role as Felicia Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful. She'll be pulling double duty and working on both soaps at once, commuting between LA and New York.
Kay portrayed Molly Conlan on ATWT from 1997 to 2004, winning a Daytime Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in 2001.
Nick and Bridget honeymooned in Hawaii, but Jackie and Owen kept them awake with their red hot monkey love in the next room. Initially, both couples had no idea the other was there. Bridget and Owen were the first to realise what was going on, and subsequently tried to keep the oldsters from finding out. What followed were hilarious hi jinks B&B style (i.e. pretty lame comedy). The youngsters kept smooching their partners to stop the oldsters catching a glimpse of the other couple, or dragging their partners into their respective bedrooms. The rest of Nick and Bridget’s honeymoon revolved around him being a grouch about one thing or another.
Owen and Jackie were much more fun. Who doesn’t enjoy watching the Jackster get her cougar on? Lesley-Anne Down sparkles and Brandon Beemer has come alive opposite her. By the end of the week, Bridget fessed up to Nick, realising Owen and Jackie planned to marry. Nick threw another mantrum and raced to the beach to try and prevent the wedding. Tough luck... they’d already said their vows and were driving off as he arrived. So, he’ll probably spend all next week being a grumpy old curmudgeon again. READ MORE
The day many fans have been waiting for finally took place today on The Bold and the Beautiful. No it wasn't Bridget and Nick's wedding. It was Felicia and Thorne telling their Logan seduced father to take their jobs at Forrester Creations and shove them. Considering both characters are routinely ignored, I view this a type of "independence day" for the characters, an opportunity to do or try something new.
Unfortunately, I'm not getting my hopes up. This development could just mean we'll be seeing even less of these two characters. If The Bold and the Beautiful doesn't want to use Lesli Kay, I say send her to The Young and the Restless. Felicia could really stir some things up over there.

It looks like The Bold and the Beautiful is really trying to implant Bill Spencer, Jr. (Don Diamont) as a true fixture to the show. According to sources, the show is casting a son for the newest Spencer and he will become a love interest for Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Woods). How many love interests will this girl get? Poor Felicia (Lesli Kay) is in a severe drought and Thorne (Winsor Harmon) couldn't get a woman if he went down Skid Row and paid for it!
Michael Fairman spoke with Brad Bell on the heels of The Bold and the Beautiful being nominated for the Daytime Emmy Award for Best Drama Series and Best Writing Team. The writer revealed his feelings over sister soap The Young and Restless being snubbed, and previewed storylines for Don Diamont's Bill Spencer and Rick Hearst's Whip Jones, the latter of whom, yours truly broke the news that he was returning to B&B.
MICHAEL FAIRMAN: Were you shocked there were only three nominees in the category?
BRAD BELL: Totally shocked! Maria Arena Bell (head writer and co-executive producer, “Y&R”) sent me a nice email already. It is a shock because “Y&R”, in the ratings, is by far and above the top show. It’s a brilliant show and deserves to be nominated. So, it’s hard to understand. But, it’s great to be nominated and it’s great that a show from each network is represented in the finals, and it’s great for all the networks." READ MORE
