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."
The article goes on to say Wood, who appeared in The CW's hit drama Arrow, reportedly missed out on other opportunities, due to her pact with the half-hour, daily sudser. Reps for B&B have stated Wood is only taking a break from the role of Steffy. There have also been conflictingreports about the status of Wood's onscreen mother Hunter Tylo (Taylor) at B&B.
