Nothing but the best for Nikki Newman! The much-married heroine of The Young and the Restless is hiring The Bold and the Beautiful's Eric Forrester — played by John McCook — to design a bridal gown for her fourth wedding to the dastardly Victor Newman. And that'll have McCook crossing over to Y&R to make a guest appearance at the ceremony (March 18-19 on CBS). TV Guide Magazine spoke with the veteran actor about his trip to Genoa City and, of course, what it's like to suddenly be the biggest slut on B&B!

The impending loss of The Bold and the Beautiful's Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery), who will die of cancer early next month, is resulting in some mighty profound and surprisingly uplifting TV. And a good share of the credit for that must go to John McCook, the beloved suds vet who plays Stephanie's stalwart hubby and soulmate, Eric. TV Guide Magazine spoke with McCook to get his take on this sad saga and found out he's amazingly happy about it!
Susan Flannery is following her Bold and the Beautiful co-star Ronn Moss out the door.
Flannery, who like Moss was an original star of The Bold and the Beautiful, announced that she will quit the soap opera after 25 years, CBS Soaps in Depth reports.
Ronn Moss has quit The Bold and the Beautiful after 25 years, Entertainment Weekly reports.
"Ronn has spent an amazing 25 years with B&B," a rep for Bell Phillip Television, which produces the series, said in a statement. "We will always consider him family, and we wish him only the best in all of his future endeavors."
Apparently, we had nothing to worry about. There was a collective sigh of relief in the daytime TV community last month when it was announced that the 39th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards would air Saturday, June 23 on cable channel HLN (8/7c). Up until then, it was widely believed the awards — which no network wanted — would go untelevised or end up on the Internet. But Malachy Wienges, chairman of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, tells TV Guide Magazine that he "always had two backup plans in place — including one with Reelz — if the HLN [deal] didn't happen. We would never have let these awards leave television."
