Exclusive: Katherine Kelly Lang Previews Her Return to The Bold and the Beautiful

Katherine Kelly Lang

She's been through hell and now she's back. Suds icon Katherine Kelly Lang recently took a three-month break from her role as Brooke Logan on CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful to appear on the Italian version of Dancing With the Stars. (B&B is a huge hit over there.) Alas, the two-time Emmy nominee found herself on the receiving end of some wildly bitchy and inappropriate comments from the judges — one even suggested she should practice more and party less. TV Guide Magazine got together with Lang to find out what's in store for Brooke when she returns to the soap on Jan. 22 and what she really thinks of her Italian experience.

Soap Vet Catherine Hickland Goes On An Excellent God Adventure

Cat & Fern's Excellent God Adventure

Where the heck has this gal been? Former soap queen and Broadway baby Catherine Hickland hasn't been seen on our TV screens since One Life to Live ended its run on ABC three years ago — and that's fine by her! The much-missed, eternally effervescent beauty is fully busy these days as a cosmetics mogul, life coach, motivational speaker and hypnotherapist. She's now married to producer Todd Fisher, son of Debbie Reynolds and the late Eddie Fisher. (Yep, that makes her Princess Leia's sister-in-law!). And she has joined forces with 99-year-old wunderkind writer Fern Underwood on the just-published Cat and Fern's Excellent God Adventure: Daily Inspirations for 365 Days of Heaven on Earth. Co-written by bestselling author and soap scribe Lindsay Harrison (The Young and the Restless, Venice) and with a forward by Reynolds, the book is available through both Amazon.com and catandfern.com. TV Guide Magazine sat down with Hickland for a lively gab session that ranged from the holy to the holy mackerel (she's head over heels in love with a rooster!). Will this popular star ever return to acting? Don't bet on it.

The Best of Soaps 2014

The Bold and the Beautiful's Don Diamont and Katherine Kelly Lang

Death! Deceit! Dopplegangers! It's the year's best in daytime drama.

Best Soap: (tie) The Bold and the Beautiful and General Hospital
Why choose between them when both shows left us in such a sudsational state of bliss? B&B, daytime's most sumptuous serial, took us on location to Abu Dhabi, Paris, Monte Carlo, and Amsterdam for lots of awesome — and watery — action: Hope and Wyatt got hitched at sea, Quinn bitch-shoved Ivy into the river Seine, and Ridge plunged from a helicopter into the Persian Gulf. But the home front was no less riveting, with family warfare and corporate chaos. This is classic soap, done exquisitely.

Melissa Archer, Greg Vaughan

Red alert! Melissa Archer, the flame-haired fan fave from One Life to Live, will hit NBC's Days of Our Lives Dec. 5 as Serena Mason, a globe-hopping medical journalist who had a romance with Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) several years ago in Africa.

TV Guide Magazine sat down with Archer to score some exclusive intel.
