Look for more Daniel McVicar (Clarke) on The Bold and the Beautiful. The actor reprises his role on July 27 and 28. D.C. Douglas has been cast as a minister on the show appearing on July 30 and Aug. 3. Fans may know Douglas Dr. Whittman, who treated Massimo (Joseph Mascolo) on B&B, Dr. Kirkwood from Passions and Chad Atherton on The Young and the Restless. Steve Blalock guest stars on the show as a biker, the actor also moonlights as Ronn Moss's (Ridge) stunt double. READ MORE
The aftermath of the honey fiasco was quite silly really. Pam told Stephanie that she’d been behind Donna’s gunging, but denied it to Donna, Eric and Ridge. She resigned from Forrester Creations before she could be fired, and later in the week went for a job interview at Jackie M. Hilarity ensued. (Note to B&B writers, CCed to Alley Mills: a little campiness goes a long way.) She talked about her brain tumor, she offered them lemon bars and she got the job. That probably means more Pam hi-jinks with wild animals, honey, or both, very soon.
Katie took on damage control for Forrester. Bill convinced her to have a “business dinner” with him, on the understanding that she’d put forward a case to keep the Donna-drenched-in-honey pictures off the front page. Bill made it clear that he wanted to take Eric down and get control of Forrester. She was intrigued by him and wanted to dig deeper. He was drawn to her, but warned her off getting too close. This is the stuff I love - finally, some sparks on B&B. There was a moment I thought they were gonna get fresh on his office desk. They sure beat the dead-on-arrival pistachios and mini-hoops “romance” Katie had with Nick. READ MORE
Insiders are buzzing that Bradley Bell will be casting Marcus’s father soon. Paging Shemar Moore (ex-Malcolm, Y&R)! Hey, I’ll settle for Réal Andrews (ex-Taggert, GH), who got shafted by One Life as Dr. Evans.
Does this mean CBS's finally getting with their diversity program? Stay tuned.
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
TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco has released his list of Soap's Worst Actors. No surprise, The Bold and the Beautiful— or Passions 2009 as I like to call it— leads the pack with three folicle strutters making the cut.
