Last Week’s B&B: Death Becomes Her

Phoebe (MacKenzie Mauzy) was back in town on The Bold and the Beautiful, and the virginal princess had an axe to grind. It seems that daddy’s little girl had the early onset of dementia too, like Beth. She’d completely forgotten that she was the one who broke up with Rick (Kyle Lowder) and even gave him and Taylor (Hunter Tylo) her blessing. Last we heard, she’d gone on a world tour with that greasy-haired Muppet Constantine, so all her vitriol came a bit out of left field.

Bold and the Beautiful: Steffy Comes Back, But Not With Phoebe’s Face

Look for Ridge and Taylor's other SORAS'ed moppet Steffy to touch down in LA from Paris soon. Our pal Nelson Branco is reporting Bold and the Beautiful has cast Canadian actress Jacqueline MacInnes Wood as Phoebe's twin. Hmmm, aren't Phoebe and Steffy identical twins? What does this mean for MacKenzie Mauzy? Is B&B going to pull an Another World and explain the girls looking differently by having one of them injure her face and require reconstructive surgery ala Vicky and Marley when Ellen Wheeler came back to take over the role of Marley from Jensen Buchanan who continued on as Vicky? Stay tuned, we'll get to the bottom of this!

Bold & Beautiful: Brandon Beemer Joins Cast!

Just week's after we asked former Days of Our Lives' star Brandon Beemer here on the Daytime Confidential podcast about online speculation that he may be headed to the Bold & Beautiful and were told "nothing is set in stone" comes word that he has officially joined the cast of the West Coast soap.

According to Soap Opera Digest Brandon Beemer has been cast in the role of a new character.

It would seem that Brad Bell may be wanting to beef up the young hunk quotient on the #2 rated soap with the additions of Brandon Beemer and Texas Battle (read  Texas Battle story here) to the cast. This shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering most of the show's current hunks (excluding Kyle Lowder and the rarely seen Mykel Shannon) are getting a bit "long-in-the-tooth" to still be passed off as "young hunks."
