Two-time Emmy nominee Ashley Jones is heading back to The Bold and the Beautiful as Bridget Forrester, the scandal queen who split town last year after giving birth to her father-in-law's baby. She begins shooting the CBS soap the week of September 12 and hits the air October 18.
Big Brother, Cassi
She was among the first to be ousted from the Big Brother house this season, but Cassi Colvin is wanted big time by The Bold and the Beautiful! The twangy, Texas-born model will appear on the CBS soap in a role that won't require much stretching — she'll play a runway model named Cassi who is involved with the hot new "Hope for the Future" fashion line. She will tape her scenes Sept. 15, the day after she appears on the Big Brother season finale, and will air mid-to-late October.
If All My Children does indeed move on to the internet as planned, it'll happen without Jacob Young. The Emmy-winning actor has struck a deal to rejoin CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful as fashion-industry scion Rick Forrester, a role he played from 1997 to '99. And get this: Young will hit the air September 26 — the Monday right after AMC ends its run on ABC! TV Guide Magazine got the exclusive scoop from this in-demand ...
Is this the end of Bill & Katie? Or just the end of Katie? On the August 1 episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, heroine Katie Spencer — played by three-time Emmy winner Heather Tom — will go into cardiac arrest when her hubby Bill (Don Diamont) says he wants to end their marriage to be with the young ...
The stars of daytime's No. 2 soap are about to get a big dose of reality: On September 7, CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful will start broadcasting in high definition, a development "that will take our show to a whole new look and level," exec producer Brad Bell tells TV Guide Magazine. "We knew back when we did all that CGI work on the Brookeberries story that it would have been so much better in high-def. Now we've got what we need to really move the show forward. And it's about time because, globally, you need to be high-def. It's now expected that you deliver your product that way." (B&B is the most widely seen daily drama in the world.)
Hunter Tylo, Colleen Bell and Ronn Moss
The Bold and the Beautiful has finally been forced to call in the police — the fashion police! The 24-year-old CBS sudser, set against the world of haute couture, just won its third best soap Emmy in a row but, let's face it, the show has never been a mover and shaker when it comes to style. In fact, it's always seemed a bit behind the times. That's all changing thanks to Colleen Bell. The L.A. style maven and philanthropist — wed to B&B exec producer Brad Bell — holds the title of Director of Special Projects and is now in charge of giving the soap a major makeover.
Don Diamont, Joanna Johnson, Ronn Moss
She's back on The Bold and the Beautiful and not because she needs a paycheck! Longtime fan fave Joanna Johnson — now a writer and co-executive producer of ABC Family's Make It or Break It — returns to the CBS soap July 22 for a four-episode stint as Karen Spencer. The plot finds Katie (Heather Tom) renewing her vows with Karen's brother Bill (Don Diamont) — a seemingly happy but complicated situation considering Bill's wandering eye. TV Guide Magazine had a chat with Johnson, who was also the creator and exec producer of the Kelly Ripa-Faith Ford sitcom Hope & Faith. Does she miss acting? Ha! Don't bet on it.
Like the soaps don't have it bad enough, they can't even get an awards show that actually pays attention to them?
Last night, the Daytime Emmys happened in Vegas and the damn thing was more travelogue and tear-jerking PSA than tribute to the medium! Between the over-produced shout-outs to the casinos, hotels ...
The Bold and the Beautifu
The Bold and The Beautiful was the big winner at the 38th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, taking home the trophy for Outstanding Drama Series for the third consecutive year.
It received four awards altogether, as it also tied in the directing category with another CBS soap, The Young and the Restless, while Heather Tom was named best supporting actress and Scott Clifton won best young actor.
It's time for that annual exercise in hopelessness, pointlessness and foolishness — predicting the Daytime Emmys! I mean, seriously, why do we bother? You can think you have good taste and know award-worthy talent when you see it. You can spend hours upon hours reviewing the reels that each of the nominees has submitted to the judges. And then it can all blow up in your face with three little words: Drew Tyler Bell. Yes, my little soap peeps, anyone can win at the Daytime Emmys (which air Sunday at 8/7c, on CBS). Anyone. So, with that in mind, here we go...
