    Kelly Kruger and Mackenzie Mauzy Star in a Thrilling New Movie — See a Preview and a Peek Behind the Scenes!

    (12/4/16) The first trailer for Girls’ Night Out, starring THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Kelly Kruger (ex-Eva) and Mackenzie Mauzy (ex-Phoebe) has been released, and it’s a shocker!

    “I know a lot of you thought were were shooting a comedy, but…” Kruger joked on Twitter when she shared the first look at their upcoming film. In the thriller, a group of girls sees their bachelorette party turned into a night of terror when the bride-to-be’s ex torments them by kidnapping her fiancé and forcing them into horrific acts!

    “We seriously had the best time making this movie,” Kruger insisted on Instagram. “I hope you guys have as much fun watching it as we did making it!

    Check out the trailer right here.

    A release schedule for Girls’ Night Out has not been announced, but we’ll be sure to let you know when you can watch this deadly thriller!

    Betty White to guest-star on Young & Hungry

    (12/2/16) TV icon Betty White will guest-star during Season 5 of Young & Hungry as Gabi’s neighbor, who reluctantly helps the young woman figure out her next steps with Josh.

    Lesley-Anne Down Previews Her Romantic New Movie!

    (12/2/16) (Trailer) Fans missing Lesley-Anne Down (ex-Jackie) on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL can enjoy the stunning Brit in the romantic new holiday film A Cinderella Christmas, airing Sunday, Dec. 4, at 9 p.m. ET on ION Television!

    In this modern take on the classic fairy tale, Angie takes the opportunity to let loose at the Christmasquerade Ball and escape her cousin’s shadow. She catches the eye of Nicholas, a wealthy bachelor, but leaves before revealing her identity, leaving him searching for the mystery woman. Down plays the handsome bachelor’s mother, who she insists isn’t a wicked stepmother.

    “She’s nice, except she is exceptionally controlling,” Down tells Soaps In Depth. “And of course she’s exceptionally rich and she only wants the best for her son. If she was my mother, I’d probably be in orange strips and doing 30 years in jail, but for the movie, it was fine!”

    The actress reveals that the director, Tosca Musk, asked her to do the role because she was a big fan of the ‘80s mini-series North and South, in which Down starred. She had also read the script before being offered the part because her husband, Don E. FauntLeRoy, was the cinematographer on the film.

    “I remember doing the read-through and thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, this is so hysterical,’” Down recalls. “It’s very rare to read something that is just snappy and well-written, and it was. It really was. It’s adorable.”

    THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Peter Porte (ex-Ricky) stars as Nicholas, and Emma Rigby plays Angie. Watch a preview of the film below and then be sure to tune in Sunday night to watch the holiday romance unfold!

Based on the novel by Gretchen McNeil, Ten is an update on the Agatha Christie classic, telling the tale of a group of teens excited to attend a house party on a secluded island only for things to take a horrific turn when they start dying one by one!

    Flynn is playing T.J., the school’s most eligible bachelor who McClain’s Meg is hoping to get cozy with before she finds herself struggling to survive and figure out who the killer is before it’s too late!

    (Pic) McClain also shared a photo of a monitor displaying footage they’d just shot on a rainy, foggy day in New England. The perfect settting for a scary movie with a killer on the loose!

    “It’s nice, right?” chuckles Brooks of getting to see Wyatt in the driver’s seat for a change. “There’s going to be a lot of conflict coming up, but I like that! His attitude with Ridge and Steffy is basically, ‘I don’t know what to tell you, but I’m in charge, and you’re going to have to deal with it!’”

    Mills chalks the characters’ endearing nature up to their almost-childlike naiveté. “Their relationship is very young, even though we’re two of the oldest people on the show,” she says. “They’re pretty immature. These characters are honestly just weird people.”

    Check out the co-stars’ silly banter as they break down what makes Pam and Charlie so adorable … it’s all in the latest issue, on sale now!

    (Video) Nicholle also captured an absolutely adorable video of Zane relaxing on a bed as the adult members of the B&B cast were gathered for a photo. He starts out laying down relaxing, but when Nicholle pans back, he’s having much more fun!

    (Pic) They also got a shot of Zane playing with one of the TV cameras that are about five times bigger than he is! “Maybe instead of directing, I’ll do cameras instead,” Tom wrote.

    Zane is absolutely adorable, especially in his little suit! We can’t wait to see the holiday episodes!

    Lindsay Price Says Older Son Hudson Is ‘Constantly’ Annoyed By His Brother: ‘I’m Really Hoping They Start to Bond’

    (9/27/16) Lindsay Price‘s sons are working toward a loving sibling dynamic.

    “Brothers, I think, innately have a competition in them and he is fully in that,” she told PEOPLE of her almost-5-year-old son Hudson as an older brother to Emerson, 2, at the Alliance of Moms Presents Raising Baby event in Los Angeles, California, on Saturday.

    “He loves his brother, but he’s just a bit annoyed with him at all times.”

    Price, 39, who shares her boys with her husband, chef Curtis Stone, is optimistic about her sons’ relationship improving with time.

    “I’m really hoping that at some point, they start to really bond,” she says. “Emerson loves him and copies everything he says and Hudson’s just constantly annoyed. Constantly.”

    One thing that never annoys her oldest son? Music.

    “Hudson is in his second year at preschool and it’s like he’s a kid. He’s no longer a baby,” she says. “He’s into songwriting. It’s unbelievable. He’ll ask if we want a rock and roll song or a jazz song or whatever it is, he’ll write one on the spot. It’s pretty funny.”Hudson’s music isn’t the only new sound echoing through their household: Price says Emerson is quite the talker.

    “Emerson just turned 2 and he’s now fully communicative,” she says. “He’ll say, ‘Where are you going?’ and ‘I don’t want that.’ So now we’re like — there’s no ignoring. It’s all happening.”

    And despite the tension between her growing boys, the family is coming together when it comes to dressing up for Halloween.

    “Hudson chooses our Halloween costumes every year so far and it’s scary because we have to do what he says,” she says. “But fortunately, this year he wanted us to go as the Peter Pan characters. So I will be Tiger Lily, he will be Peter Pan, Curtis will be Hook and Emerson is going to be a parrot on Hook’s shoulder.”

    Gina Rodriguez's Mark Wahlberg Problem Is One We Could All Totally Relate To

    (9/15/16) Gina Rodriguez really is just like all of us.

    The Golden Globe winner co-stars alongside Mark Wahlberg in Deepwater Horizon, the Peter Berg-directed drama about the BP oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 that killed 11 people and devastated the environment.

    "Are you kidding me?" Rodriguez said when I asked her at the film's Toronto International Film Festival premiere if she was a Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch fan. "Do you know how hard it was to look at him and not think about the Calvin Klein ad?!"

    We could only imagine.

    "He's incredible," the Jane the Virgin star said. "He's such a loving and ridiculously generous actor and human being."

    She also gushed about the rest of the cast, which includes Kate Hudson, Kurt Russell and more.

    "The content of our movie is bigger than yourself," Rodriguez said. "No egos, no necessity for those moments of vanity or fear or insecurity because it was not about us and the goal was so much more."

    Wahlberg feels the same way.

    "Obviously, it was huge story but everybody really focused on the environmental disaster," he said. "I think a lot of people didn't realize that 11 people lost their lives and there were a lot of brave men and women who did a lot of things to try to stop the spill. I just thought it was an amazing story that needed to be told and i wanted to to be a part of it and honor the people who lost their lives."

    Deepwater Horizon is in theaters on Sept. 30.

    Texas Battle Previews His Dramatic New Role!

    (8/26/16) Texas Battle (ex-Marcus, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) is thrilled that fans will finally get to see the hard work he put into the inspirational new movie, Greater!

    “We shot Greater two-and-a-half years ago and we’ve been waiting for that movie to drop,” Battle tells Soaps In Depth. “It was getting recognition, so the producers decided to wait until we had that buzz established.”

    The film tells the true story of Brandon Burlsworth, a young man considered too short and fat to play football, who defied the odds and went from college football to being drafted by the NFL before his entire life changed forever. Battle portrays Anthony, one of Brandon’s best friends.

    Battle shared a photo of himself and one of the film’s stars, Neil McDonough, during filming, saying, “One thing I love about shooting movies is working with good people, even when they’re such big stars like Neil McDonough. Great Dude. Such a pleasure.”

    Having played college football himself, Battle was familiar with the world, but had never played the sport in film or television — let alone playing a real person. “So meeting with him,” he says of the real-life Anthony Lucas, “sitting down and talking to him and trying to pick his brain on how Brandon really was, what their relationship was like... You have to really have to do your homework because you want to bring it justice. I can’t wait for Greater to come out. I’m very excited for it.”

    Gina Rodriguez Covers Latina Magazine, Opens Up About Shaving Her Head: "Who I Am Is Not My F--king Hair"

    (8/24/16) Gina Rodriguez is Latina's October cover star, and in her true fashion, she's real and empowering with all of her responses.

    The Jane the Virgin star just wrapped up her first major motion picture, Deepwater Horizon, based on the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

    “I play Andrea Fleytas, a real-life hero, who’s a Latina from California, and I thought for her not to be portrayed by a Latino would have been devastating. It didn’t need to be me. I told Peter (Berg), It can be any Latina out there crushing it and killing the game," she said.

    The film features an all-star cast and Rodriguez opened up about being a part of this cast and praised this "family."

    "Peter Berg is a genius. Mark Walberg is a badass. John Malkovich, Kurt Russell, Kate Hudson—I learned so much from these people, from this cast, from this family," the actress said.

    The actress feelings that Wahlberg, in particular, "got her" and understood all that she's been through before becoming a Hollywood star.

    "“One thing I find extremely empowering about Mark is that he doesn’t want to do it alone. He wants to help everyone around him, uplift everyone around him. Mark understands that he got to where he was because of all the people that helped him get there, including himself. He got me," Rodriguez said. "He got the idea that shit was hard and I pushed through. It wasn’t just hard as a Latina, it wasn’t just hard as a curvy leading lady, but it was hard as a woman. It was hard as somebody that came from the hood. He gets the struggle, and he could see it in someone else.”

    Rodriguez proudly feels that although her culture has been "living the crab-in-the-barrel effect," they're stronger than they know.

    "We're so afraid there isn't enough room for all of us that we fight to get to the top. We don't need to do that. There's room for all of us. We're stronger in numbers. As Latinos, we put Barack in office. We could do the same in making sure that Donald Trump doesn't get in office. We are that strong," she explained.

    The star recently shaved her head for her new role in the upcoming movie Annihilation and learned essential things about herself.

    "I think it all plays into the idea of being your own hero and not feeling like you have to live up to other people's expectations. I am not my beauty. Who I am is not my f*cking hair, and to be an actor is to transform. To represent a community is to commit, to give my entire all," Rodriguez said.

    And this is why we love you, Gina!

    Gina Rodriguez: 'It's Always Been a Battle for Me with Weight'

    Gina Rodriguez is opening up about her battle with Hashimoto's disease, an autoimmune disease that can cause an underactive thyroid.

    "It's always been a battle for me with weight," the Jane the Virgin star, 32, tells Health in its September issue, on stands Friday. "Keeping weight off is very difficult because my metabolism is pretty much shot, which to me felt like a curse when I was 19."

    Rodriguez said her weight battles were even more difficult because of the nature of her job.

    "As an actress, I was like, 'Seriously?! In a world that's so vain, I have to deal with the disease that makes you not keep weight off?' " she says. "But it actually became a blessing because then I got to represent not only women and Latinas, but also women who are dealing with this disease."

    While she has come to terms with having Hashimoto's disease, there is one aspect she still finds challenging.

    "I'm gluten-free, which is the most difficult thing in the world because, like Oprah, I love bread!" says Rodriguez. "I definitely eat gluten-free bread every day."

    Her dietary restrictions mean she has to avoid the temptations of craft services while on set.

    "It's mind over matter because they put out doughnuts every morning, and they smell divine," she says. "I have to look at gluten like, 'Yeah, I want to eat that. Of course I do, but it doesn't make me feel good. And I want to feel good.' "

    To keep herself feeling good, Rodriguez tries to be active every day.

    "If I can at least walk for 30 minutes a day, it's extremely helpful for my thyroid gland," she says. "Running, boxing, jump rope and hitting the heavy bag are my workout constants."

    While she's busy filming, Rodriguez still squeezes in exercise whenever she can.

    "On set, I like to do videos of me dancing," she says. "And I'll do squats. I'll drop into a squat any day of the week, even mid-scene."

    Ronn Moss Welcomes a New Addition to His Family!

    Antonio Sabato Jr. says he was blacklisted by Hollywood directors after supporting Donald Trump

    ( Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. claims he has been blacklisted by Hollywood directors thanks to his speech at the Republican National Convention in July.

    The soap opera star spoke with Variety about the backlash he received after voicing his support for Donald Trump at the RNC.

    "It’s been interesting," he told Variety. "I’ve had fantastic directors who have said officially to my agents and managers they will never hire me again. They will never even see me for projects. That’s unfair. It’s just like Communism."

    Sabato said he just wanted to voice his opinion.

    "I was never a politician. I care about my country. I put God first. For the last seven-and-a-half years, I’ve seen this country led by a leader that’s made mistakes. I spoke my mind about it. But because I’m in the industry, you can’t talk about that," he said.

    And it's not just those in Hollywood that are angry with Sabato's remarks; the actor said he was also slammed on social media for his political views.

    "On Twitter, there’s been name calling, and celebrities attacking me. That’s fine. I see it, but I don’t read it. I block them and delete them and move on."

    Despite all of the backlash, the actor has no plans to leave Hollywood behind.

    "I have my hands in all kinds of businesses. I’m never going to leave Hollywood. I’m going to go after it one way or another," he said. "I’m just speaking the truth — people don’t know how this business works."

    Soap stars coming to Arnaudville

    Restaurant owner Sanjay Maharaj hasn’t seen this much excitement in the small town of Arnaudville since he arrived there from New York City four years ago. Maharaj is receiving emails by the dozens about a cancer benefit his restaurant is hosting with stars from the TV soap opera, “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

    Couples from Boston and Rhode Island have even bought tickets and are flying in.

    “So many people have been sending us messages and saying thank you for this great cause,” said Maharaj. “A couple of ladies came in and said this is like their dream come true. They never imagined this would happen.

    “They’ve been watching the show for over 30 years. To meet some of the cast members is just incredible to them. It feels good we are able to make people happy and raise money for a good cause.”

    Maharaj and Kevin Robin, co-owners of the Little Big Cup in Arnaudville, host the soap stars for an Amgen Break Away from Cancer fundraiser at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 13. Actress Katherine Kelly Lang, who plays Brooke Logan on the series, will attend, along with cast members Winsor Harmon (Thorne Forrester) and John McCook (Eric Forrester).

    Lang, who lost her father and three grandparents to cancer, serves as an ambassador for Amgen, which helps patients and their families with education, financial assistance and other resources. She is also a friend of Maharaj from his days in Manthattan as a Wells Fargo branch manager in Times Square.

    Maharaj said an invitation for Lang to do a fundraiser in south Louisiana was happily accepted.

    “Originally, the plan was for just her to come out,” said Maharaj. “We sent over a little menu for the fundraiser, with some of the classics, like roasting a whole pig, gumbo, grits, grilliard, etouffee. She took it on the set and she showed everyone.

    “They wanted to go, so two more cast members are joining her. If it goes really well, we may host this every year with some different cast members. The description and the food made everyone want to join.”

    The event also includes a silent auction of items from Lang’s fashion line, along with products and services from local vendors. The $100 admission ticket includes beer, wine, a buffet and meet and greet with the soap stars.

    Limited tickets are still available at 337-754-7147.

    Star Heather Tom Directing the Short Film, Serenity

    (Pic1, Pic2, Pic3) Heather Tom (Katie, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) is directing a new short film titled Serenity!

    The actress, who has previously directed multiple episodes of B&B, shared a few photos from the set of her exciting new project.

    “Here are my two amazing leads for Serenity, the film I just shot,” she wrote with he photo of her with actors Vince Nappo and Blake Clendenin. “Words cannot do justice to the experience — one of the most grueling and best of my life.”

    As Tom explained in another post, the shoot was particularly grueling due to the recent summer heat wave. “My crew,” she declared proudly. “These people worked in 110-degree heat and never complained. Such a huge amount of talent in one room — I am beyond lucky!”

    She also had a little assistance from her family as she announced, “Shout out to my sister, Nicholle Tom, for helping out!”

    Tom has already proven herself a talented director with her work on B&B, so we look forward to hearing more about Serenity as she continues to work on it, and we can’t wait to see it when it’s finished!

    Scott Clifton Sings New B&B Tune

    Scott Clifton (Liam, B&B) will sing an original song on the July 28 episode of B&B, and we have your sneak peek of a very special Liam montage that accompanies it. The new tune was written by Daytime Emmy Award Winning Song Writer/Supervising Producer Casey Kasprzyk, who details, “The creation of ‘The Song That Never Played’ happened very organically. As we were shooting Liam’s reflective montage, I was completely drawn into Scott Clifton’s performance. It was the first scene of the day, and Monte Carlo was desolate. It created an amazing visual. So I scribbled down some lyrics and wrote out a draft on the plane ride home. After Tony Ferrari [co-writer] worked out a melody, we discussed with Brad Bell [executive producer/head writer] who should sing the song. It’s funny, because the answer was literally staring us in the face. Scott’s vocal performance totally delivers. It’s a really special montage that completely captures the Liam/Steffy saga like never before.” Clifton admits,” I was surprised that the show asked me to sing the song — it’s such a sweet, subtle, pretty song — mostly because I just don’t think of myself as a singer, but when they told me that they’d heard my own music and thought my voice would be a nice fit, I was honored. We recorded it really quickly in a small studio on Wilshire near CBS, right before I had to shoot scenes for B&B. The guys were great — we told stories and laughed for most of the time, and the notes they gave me made everything sound so much better.” Of the visit to Monte Carlo, where Clifton shot the scene, he says, “This was my third time visiting Monaco. It’s a beautiful, beautiful city. Everything about it is exquisite: the people, the food, the geography, the architecture, the climate, the culture. And it’s really special to be a part of the TV Festival, celebrating television. What was different about this visit for me was that it’s the first time I’ve shot episodes of the show there. Not the worst work environment! And Brad was with us this year, which — if you didn’t know this — makes everything more fun. Brad is an expert on balancing productivity with having a good time, and there was no forfeiture of partying just because we had to work.” Check out the clip here.

    Another D-list day at the Republican National Convention

    Another former soap star, Kimberlin Brown, brought up the rear Tuesday at the Republican National Convention, her late-night limelight delayed by a long delegate count in the Donald Trump nominating process.

    Brown, a California avocado farmer and mom of two, played the villainous Sheila Carter on both "The Young and the Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful" from 1990 until 2006. Antonio Sabato Jr., another "Bold" alum, spoke on the convention's opening day Monday.

    Cameras panned to empty seats as Brown spoke, though plenty of delegates remained. She angrily noted some vitriol she had received on social media for agreeing to speak for Trump, but had some vitriol of her own for Hillary Clinton, whom she accused of not doing enough to help businesswomen.

    Of the avocado-growing business, a steely-eyed Brown said, "I've seen firsthand our domestic market flooded with imports that harmed local farmers and even drove some out of business."

    She added, "We need someone who knows how to build things, who knows how to create jobs and who knows how to negotiate."

    Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White called Trump a loyal friend who always took a keen interest in White's career.

    "I've been in the fight business my whole life. I know fighters. Ladies and gentleman, Donald Trump is a fighter and I know he will fight for this country," White said.

    According to the Republicans, Trump hosted the once-controversial mixed martial arts competitions at his Trump Taj Mahal when other venues refused.

    Oh, and also on the night's program: A low-ranked professional golfer, Natalie Gulbis. She was a Season 2 contestant on "The Celebrity Apprentice" whom Trump fired eight episodes in. Apparently she's OK with that. She called Trump "generous" and "inspiring."

    Gulbis, who once had her own reality show on the Golf Channel, borrowed a line from Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg in praising Trump as the guy who urged her to be fearless and to "lean in" when faced with age (she's 33) and gender challenges as a businesswoman.

    Kimberlin Brown: What We Know About the RNC’s Guest Actress

    ( Soap opera actress Kimberlin Brown will take center stage at the Republican National Convention Tuesday night, appearing as the guest speaker for the night’s primetime slot. She will even be introduced by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s onetime opponent Ben Carson.

    But, who is Brown? Variety explains:

    Brown played Sheila Carter first on “The Young and The Restless” and then on “The Bold and The Beautiful.” Carter was a “devious” character who “terrorized” the fictional Genoa City and was eventually killed off by her arch nemesis in the 1990s.

    She then appeared on “Port Charles” and “One Life to Live,” followed by a short-term role on “All My Children.”

    She currently hosts “Dramatic Designs” on The Design Network, where she walks viewers through her many projects, from conception to the final product.

    Brown is a “small business owner,” according to a GOP convention statement.

    Brown was born in Hayward, California.

    She has been married to Gary Pelzer since May 1991. They have two children, Alexes Marie and Nicholas.

    She has an avocado farm.

    From the look of her Instagram post, she seems to be pretty excited about tonight’s speech.

    (Pic) Actress Erin Cummings and actor Tom Degnan are married!

    The couple tied the knot on July 2 at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on the campus of the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, and became the first celebrity bride and groom to get married at the historic church.

    The Feed the Beast star looked beautiful in her white off the shoulder wedding gown custom made by designer and bridesmaid Rochelle Rodriguez. For the reception, Cummings, 39, wore a second dress also created by Rodriguez. Meanwhile, the Limitless actor was dapper in a black tuxedo and color coordinated bowtie.

    A total of nine bridesmaids and nine groomsmen were in the couple's wedding party including Cummings' former Astronaut Wives Club costar JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Cummings' manager and bridesman Todd Diener as well as the bride's mother Cheryl, who served as matron of honor. Groomsmen included People v O.J. Simpson star Billy Magnussen and UnREAL actor Josh Kelly.

    Cummings shared a sweet wedding photo of the new Mr. and Mrs. Degnan on social media. "Words cannot describe the joy, light, laughter and love that @tomdegnan and I experienced this weekend," she captioned her picture. "I will always cherish the moment I entered the church and saw the smiling faces of everyone we know and love, before looking down the aisle and seeing the man I always dreamed about before I even knew him. This was all worth the wait and now I understand when people said to never, ever settle. For the 150+ people who were still holding strong at the end of the night and were able to be part of that unbelievable Piano Man finale, I cannot even think of that moment without getting choked up."

    Adding, "It was truly an unexpected and emotional moment that will fill my heart and spirit for years to come."

    The newlyweds celebrated their honeymoon in Rome, Italy and capped off their romantic getaway with a trip to New York City to watch the Broadway sensation Hamilton.

    OLTL Vet Thanks Antonio Sabato Jr.'s RNC Speech for 'Cementing' Soap Actors' Reputation as 'Dunderheads'

    If you ever longed to see Llanview lothario David Vickers take a swing at Port Charles pugilist Jagger Cates, today is your lucky day.

    One Life to Live vet Tuc Watkins offered a sarcasm-drenched “thank you” to Antonio Sabato Jr., after the General Hospital alum served as a guest speaker at the Republican National Convention, where Donald Trump on Tuesday would officially become the GOP nominee for President of the United States.

    “On behalf of former soap stars nationwide, I’d like to thank Antonio Sabato, Jr., for further cementing our collective reputation as a bunch of ‘dunderheads,” Watkins said on his Facebook page, adding the hashtag #VoteHillary.

    Tuc Watkins: On behalf of former soap stars nationwide, I'd like to thank Antonio Sabato, Jr., for further cementing our collective reputation as a bunch of "dunderheads." ?#?VoteHillary?

    Sabato Jr. on Night 1 of the RNC acknowledged he wasnt “your typical convention speaker” before proceeding to contend that “our rights have been trampled and our security threatened” by President Obama’s administration.

    Obama and presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton “promote division,” Sabato Jr. said. “Don’t be fooled: Donald Trump is for unity. Donald Trump believes in one America with liberty and justice for all.” The actor/model/activist ended his speech by saying that it’s the duty of government to “secure borders and protect citizens,” adding that “none of this is hateful, it’s the right thing to do!”

    Though Watkins felt compelled to characterize Sabato Jr.’s opinions as damning for the oft-dismissed daytime-TV community at large, famously outspoken GH star Nancy Lee Grahn was remarkably mum on Sabato Jr.’s speech — though for good reason, as shared by this tweet posted by her daughter:

    The actor shared a collection of shots of his family’s new residence on Instagram, writing “Y’all come visit now, y’hear?!”

    Fans confused by the sign proclaiming the home “The Herbst’s” should know that he’s not sharing photos of the home of GH castmate Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth) — Hearst was actually born Richard Charles Herbst!

    Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) publicly declared on Twitter he'd love to accept his friend's invitation.

    @BfordAnderson: Ah man. Gorgeous. Congrats! I may take you up on that. Miss you pal. …

    Hearst's response? "Anytime, B!"

    Fully Clothed Antonio Sabato Jr. Draws Raucous Cheers With RNC Speech

    (Video) Antonio Sabato Jr., best known for his sensational black-and-white Calvin Klein underwear campaign in the 1990s, found the first fully convincing speaking role of his career at Monday’s opening night of the Republican National Convention.

    Plainly calling himself “not your typical convention speaker,” the General Hospital and Melrose Place star — who more recently has appeared on Dancing With the Stars and the VH1 dating series My Antonio — declared that “my belief in this country and my faith in Jesus Christ have compelled me to speak now.”

    “Our rights have been trampled and our security threatened,” said Sabato, who described his decision to move to the United States from Rome in 1985, and become a naturalized citizen in 1996. “Others who want to come to the U.S. to live and work should follow the same rules!”

    Sabato’s speech, which contended that America is “weaker by almost every measure,” was short on specifics, but heavy on passion. “Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton promote division. Don’t be fooled: Donald Trump is for unity. Donald Trump believes in one America with liberty and justice for all.”

    Sabato ended his talk by saying that it’s the duty of government to “secure borders and protect citizens,” adding that “none of this is hateful, it’s the right thing to do!”

    B&B’s Tom To Co-Host THE TALK Today

    Heather Tom (Katie, B&B) will join the ladies of THE TALK today (July 18) as a co-host; she last stepped in on June 29. THE TALK airs at 2 p.m. ET and 1 p.m. PT/CT on CBS.

    Antonio Sabato, Jr. Reveals Why He's Speaking at the RNC – and Why He Supports Donald Trump

    Actor and former Calvin Klein model Antonio Sabato, Jr. is passionate about improving life in America and around the world.

    Since the 44-year-old has been talking about social, economic and financial issues with Donald Trump for the past year, he was pleased when Trump's campaign asked him to speak during the Republican National Convention, which opens Monday in Cleveland.

    "It is refreshing to have a candidate like Trump who is so honest about his feelings because he speaks for many of us when he says we are in a bad place," Sabato, Jr. tells PEOPLE.

    "I have never been a Republican or Democrat," he continued. "I am an American."

    Sabato, Jr. will take the stage on Tuesday night for a special speech.

    "I am planning to speak for a few minutes," he says. "I will discuss my frustration and fear of how things are now, and how we need the kind of change Trump can bring."

    Born in Rome, Italy, the entertainer – who moved to the U.S in 1985 – says he is angry about terrorism and violence in general. Thursday's attack in Nice, France, a coastal city he says he loved as a young boy, greatly upset him.

    "I used to hang out in Nice in the summer, and now all of Europe has changed," says Sabato, Jr. who lives in Los Angeles and is active on social media. "We need a straight-to-the-point person like Trump to give us a fresh start."

    Sabato, Jr. is working with members of the Trump campaign to polish his speech. He will be flown to Cleveland by the campaign and stay for a couple of days to meet other politicians.

    "I am not being paid to speak, I am passionate about improving the world," he tells PEOPLE.

    "I look forward to meeting people like Ted Cruz and Rudy Giuliani. They are smart men who have a hard job. I thought show business was bad but politics is worse."

    Chaz Bono Opens Up About His Edgy New Film and Why He's Not Taking on Any Transgender Roles

    Playing a hoarder/former crack addict with bad teeth might seem less than glamorous, but Chaz Bono says it was just the role he was looking for.

    "I like to do a lot of charter acting and off-beat stuff, and that’s not always easy to find," the actor, 47, tells PEOPLE of his scene stealing new part in the indie thriller Dirty.

    "It was just a great part, a really juicy moment and scene," he adds. "So when I read something like that I become really motivated to get the part. And that's the way it was for this, I really had to fight."

    Bono was not the first choice to play Jerry the hoarder, and after a close friend managed to land him an audition, it was up to Bono to win over the producers.

    "They didn't even want me to audition," he explains. "I think they had a different idea for the part and wanted a more comic take on him."

    Fighting for roles is something he has gotten used to over the years. As the only child of Sonny and Cher, he is determined to make it in the industry on his own. And despite being transgender, Bono has decided not to take any trans roles in order to avoid being type cast.

    "It's not something I think about, other than the fact that I don't play transgender parts," Bono says.

    "It's just a decision that I made at least at this point, until I get established," he adds. "I'm a character actor and I really like to do stuff that's kind of out there and edgy and I don’t want to be seen as anything when I'm acting. I want to be able to morph into whatever. I don’t want to get pigeonholed."

    The hard work and determination is starting to pay off. "This has been a good year for me," Bono says. "I've started really for the first time, after just kind of grinding it out and doing a lot of smaller projects, I've been starting to break through a little bit."

    In addition to his part in Dirty, Bono recently made appearances on The Bold and the Beautiful and is working on a new comedic web-series called Where the Bears Are.

    "I'm finally starting to get paid to act," he adds. "So it's been a great year."

    Dirty was released on July 12.

In the flick, Bono plays Jerry the Hoarder. “Jerry is very quirky and really character-y, like a Steve Buscemi-type,” he describes. “He’s a junkie and a crackhead, and he’s this police informant who is integral to the film’s plot. He’s a very disturbed guy. I really prepared for the role. I went in there [to read] in a pair of ripped pajama bottoms and a T-shirt that I rolled in the mud. I went to a friend’s house beforehand who’s a drag queen and had him put some makeup on me to darken under my eyes and make me look really bad — and got the part that day! Honestly, everything that I’ve ever gotten since has been as a result of that [performance]. It has gotten me into every door since, so I am incredibly grateful for it.”

    ‘Melrose Place’ star’s son back in contact with family after relapse

    Former “Melrose Place” star Jack Wagner’s son has gotten back in touch with his family a day after he was reported missing amid an apparent relapse.

    “Harrisons been in touch, he’s 21 & in charge of his life, ty for the lv & prayers, please continue to share your struggles, it helps us all,” the actor tweeted on Monday.

    The update came less than 12 hours after Wagner to Twitter to let fans know that he was worried about his son, who reportedly struggles with addiction issues, after he had not heard from Harrison in nearly a week.

    “I’m going to ask those who want to share their fears, addictions & struggles to do so w me via Twitter. We can face them 2gether, I’ll start,” Wagner, 56, wrote, before continuing: “I fear for my youngest sons safety. Harrison has struggled w drugs & alcohol just as I did when I was younger. He’s relapsed & is MIA 5days.”

    In the hours since the initial tweets, Wagner has gone out of his way to respond to the many fans who have responded to him with their own stories about how addiction has affected their lives.

    Wagner, who’s also had a successful music career, is a veteran of several soap operas including “General Hospital” and “The Bold and the Beautiful.” He was a fixture on “Melrose Place” from 1995 to 1999.

    Pierson Fodé Defends His Controversial Storyline!

    The road to redemption has been a rough one for THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Thomas over the past year. Having conceived a child with Caroline in an incident that could arguably be seen as either a huge misunderstanding or an act of inexcusable malfeasance, the Forrester playboy has struggled to navigate the fallout from that night.

    So, too, has his portrayer, Pierson Fodé, been challenged to navigate his alter ego’s ethical tightrope of a storyline. “That scene [between Thomas and Caroline] was such a tough one for me to film, and I knew it was going to be treacherous territory,” he says, “but I think it’s a story that needed to be told, because it’s something that does happen [in real life].”

    Check out the latest CBS issue of Soaps In Depth to read our feature with Fodé, in which he discusses Thomas’ evolution over the past year, along with that hilariously provocative video spoof that left the Internet all hot-and-bothered this spring. It’s all in the new issue, on sale now!

    For Tyrant's Jennifer Finnigan, Patience Pays Off as Molly Gets Thrown Into a Timely, 'Devastating' Storyline

    If you’ve been waiting for Tyrant‘s Jennifer Finnigan to have her chance to shine in the Abbudinian sun, Season 3 of the FX drama is for you.

    Having watched rather helpless from the sidelines of the United States for much of Season 1, and led to believe husband Barry was dead for a good chunk of Season 2, Molly Al-Fayeed has been a rather reactive character. But starting this Wednesday (July 6) at 10/9c, and especially as the second and third episodes unfold, Finnigan will be thrown into the series’ “scariest” storyline ever, all while Barry does his best to lead an already volatile Abbudin in the wake of his brother Jamal being an assassination target.

    Calling from the show’s home base in Budapest, Finnigan shared with TVLine a tantalizing look at what’s ahead.

    TVLINE | To anybody who hasn’t watched the first two seasons, who hasn’t gotten around to bingeing it: Do you think it’s possible to just “jump in” on Wednesday night?

    I wouldn’t recommend it, but I am really strict about my TV watching. In fact, my husband gets so annoyed with me because I have to watch everything sequentially. [Laughs] I suppose if you wanted to try, you could, as long as you know the basic workings of the show. But I would suggest they find time to at least watch a few episodes of Season 2, which I think was a lot stronger than Season 1.

    TVLINE | I remember watching the Season 2 finale and thinking it was very series finale-like. Jamal looked very dead there.

    I know. That was what everyone, from my sushi chef to my dentist, kept asking me throughout the winter and spring — “Oh my God, is he alive?” We [on the cast] actually didn’t know [his fate] until we started shooting Episode 1.

    TVLINE | I mean, I guess there is a series about “What does Barry do if Jamal dies?,” but it would seem weird to lose one of the leads.

    But that’s kind of the state of TV right now, the Game of Thrones way of thinking, which is “everyone is disposable” in a sense. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that there is no Jamal, but he’s definitely a very central character. And he’s also very charismatic, and a fan favorite. But I do think the show can exist without Jamal. The initial concept was really centered on the family. It was really only by Episode 2 and 3 that it morphed into more about the brothers.

    TVLINE | In Season 1, Molly returned home to the States, while in Season 2, Barry was presumed dead for a while and they were separated. This has to be the season that you and Adam Rayner get your most scenes together ever.

    We have been working a lot together, and we love that. At the end of Season 2 we were like, “Good God, we haven’t worked together once!” So it was kind of nice to get back together and work with him again. I always joke that in Season 1, my drinking game was every time Molly said, “Barry, are you OK?” In Season 2, we saw Molly find herself a bit, but Season 3 really kicks in. I’ve been patient — I felt like it’s about time they give me some meat — and it’s been everything I hoped for and more.

    TVLINE | How does Molly take to the “first lady” role?

    Pretty well. I mean, she’s really smart. She’s opinionated. I get to do those scenes in the war room, which is so fun for me, just hanging with the boys and wearing a power suit. It’s funny, I’ve always played doctors and lawyers, I’ve always played strong women. It just took a while to get that going on this show because the other female character, Leila (played by Moran Atias), was so powerful right out of the gate and Molly was more of a support to her husband. That was frustrating for me as a performer. I like the stronger roles.

    TVLINE | But this build-up, in retrospect, has been organic. To have Molly quickly go from being doctor/housewife to someone wielding power in a Middle Eastern country would have been a stretch.

    You’re so right. TV is your specialty, so you know that and you understand that dynamic. But as an actor your instinct is to want it all right away. I remember having so many discussions about it with Howard [Gordon], for whom I have nothing but respect and adoration, but it was hard. I was like, “Howard, this isn’t the character that I’m interested in playing.” He said, We just have to earn it with Molly.” We have to get to know her, and now Season 3 is that storyline. Wait until you see it. I think it’s the bravest, scariest thing we’ve tackled. And it’s especially timely right now with everything happening in the news. It’s devastating and terrifying.

    TVLINE | Do you think that some people were hesitant to try Tyrant because of that, because there’s so much of this in the headlines? Maybe they’re afraid the show would ask them to sympathize with a Middle Eastern despot?

    I don’t know if that was what made people reticent…. I think we were trying to find ourselves, as a lot of shows do in Season 1. There were so many different ways to tell the stories that we wanted to tell, and sometimes our story got lost in a muddle. But I really think the show has now found its voice. It’s really hit a peak right now. It was a slow burn, and maybe not so strangely it does very well internationally. I think we have many, many Middle Eastern fans, because that’s mostly who approaches me. They’re so interested to see a story told from their point of view and their perspective.

    TVLINE | So you get good feedback from them?

    We really do. I think Howard and Chris Kaiser, they take great care in trying to, first of all, not offend, and definitely tell the story from every perspective. Howard has always placed great importance on properly developing the Middle Eastern characters and not making them caricatures and stereotypes.

    TVLINE | Barry’s rise to the “throne” surely won’t go unchecked, I imagine.

    It’s really nice to see Adam be able to take a bite out of these scenes that he’s been given. I think for a long time he was sort of “the straight man,” because when Jamal walks into a room he sort of sucks the air out. He’s so charismatic and larger than life, and that didn’t leave as much room for Barry to exercise those “tyrannical muscles,” so to speak. Now that Barry is stepping forward a bit more, it makes for a way more interesting character. I love watching what Adam’s doing. There’s just something different and edgier.

    TVLINE | I can’t imagine Leila goes quietly into the night. We’re not going to get a Pretty Woman montage where she teaches Molly how to be first lady, which fork to use for the escargot, are we?

    Sadly — because Moran and I like working together — we barely had any scenes together this season. I hope that doesn’t spoil anything, but she really does have her own storyline going on, as do I. We’re both dealing with very, very different crises.

    TVLINE | Meanwhile, what are the kids up to?

    [Laughs] I can’t give away too much there. “Both of the kids are back,” in Abbudin, let’s put it that way. The writers and I call the first episode “the last happy moment,” so if fans are expecting us to go storming right out of the gate, they may be surprised, because the first episode is building blocks for the rest of the season. It’s one small moment of happiness and peace for the Al-Fayeeds, for Abbudin. And then of course the s–t hits the fan.

    TVLINE | Should we worry at all about Daliyah? She was getting kind of close to Barry there.

    We should definitely worry about Daliyah. If you go through a battle, a war with someone, those feelings don’t just go away. And let’s be honest, Barry and Molly haven’t had an extremely strong relationship in a while. But I will say there’s such a double standard in TV. Not to get on a soapbox, but… Barry has been lying to Molly “for her own good” and for the safety of the children, but he didn’t let her know he was alive for months. This woman mourned him. Her children mourned him. She was going through her own personal hell thinking that he was dead, and in the meantime … he was kind of falling in love with someone else. None of the fans got on him about that.

    TVLINE | That always rubbed me a bit the wrong way, yeah.

    Then of course there’s Jake Weber, who played the lawyer who was sniffing around Molly when she was in a really vulnerable state. They kissed, and that was it, before she told him she wasn’t ready. And then of course the minute Barry finally came out of hiding and admitted to her that he was still alive, she immediately ejected the lawyer from the picture. And yet I still have people getting on me about how Molly kissed some guy! I don’t know if Howard would want me to say this, but when we were filming at the beginning of Season 2, he was like, “I need to figure out if and when Molly and the lawyer sleep with each other.” I went, “Absolutely not.” I explained that if Barry did that with Daliyah, somehow he could come back from it, but fans are less forgiving of female characters, especially the wives of the lead character. “If you do that, she won’t be able to come back from that, and I’m too protective of this character to allow that to happen.” Bless him, he agreed in the end.

    TVLINE | Before we go, give me one last tease about Season 3….

    I’m not exaggerating when I say Episodes 2 and 3 launch one of the most powerful storylines — and I’m a huge watcher of TV — that has ever been done on television. I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say as an actor I’ve never fallen so deep into just devastation. It is the deepest, scariest, most painful and terrifying occurrence you could imagine. And it changes them forever, all of them. And with everything going on in the world, it’s a fairly accurate reflection of things that we’re seeing every day. I hope people watch it, but I hope it doesn’t seem like we’re sensationalizing anything. Because that certainly is not the intention.

    Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Chooses Steffy's Mr. Right!

    Steffy may be all about the angst of late on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL, but her portrayer, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, certainly manages to keep a sense of humor about her alter ego’s latest romantic conundrum. For starters, the actress would love to get to the bottom of a burning question regarding the Spencer men whom Steffy is so torn between.

    “The real question is, ‘Who’s better in bed?’” quips the actress, who jokingly adds that if viewers pay close attention to Steffy’s facial expressions, they might be able to deduce the answer in time. “Just watch closely, and fans will know,” she teases.

    In all seriousness, Wood thinks her character truly is evenly split when it comes to her attraction for both Liam and Wyatt. So how’s a girl to decide? In our new issue, Wood offers a suggestion for how the conflicted beauty might clear her head on this front, if only for one night. (Hint: Cocktails and gal pals are involved.)

    You’ll also find out what’s up with Steffy’s softer look of late on the show. It’s all in our latest CBS issue of Soaps In Depth magazine, on sale now!

    Heather Tom Returns to the Director's Chair at THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL

    (Pic) Heather Tom (Katie) is stepping behind the camera again on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL!

    The actress shared a photo of herself on the B&B set behind one of the camera to reveal that she was directing another episode of the soap.

    Despite having directed episodes of B&B in the past, a nervous Tom tweeted out, “Wish me luck!” and her friends and castmates past and present did just that!

    @seankanan: @BBheathertom @BandB_CBS @boldinsider break a leg, Heather. You will be great as usual.

    @crystalchappell: @BBheathertom @BandB_CBS @boldinsider you'll be great!

    @CJLeBlanc: @BBheathertom ??

    Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez Won't Label Her Sexuality: "I Love Hearts Period"

    If there's one thing fans love about Gina Rodriguez, it's the simple fact that she always interacts with fans on social media.

    So perhaps it should come as no surprise that when the Jane the Virgin star opened up questions to her Twitter followers Tuesday afternoon, one question and answer received some extra attention.

    During a round of #AskGina, one fan wanted to know a little more about Gina's personal life.

    "Do you identify as straight?" a follower named Ray asked.

    "I don't need anyone to define their sexuality to me nor do I feel the need to either," she responded. "I love hearts. Period."

    During Tuesday's Q&A, Gina also opened up to fans about rejection, the importance of staying positive and more.

    When someone asked the Golden Globes winner how she stays "happy," Gina continued to address the importance of love.

    "As far as I know I get one life. I'm going to live it," she replied. "No time for negativity. No space for hatred. All love."

    And if rejection just so happens to come along, you get right back up and try again.

    "Of course I'm afraid of rejection but I won't allow it to stop me. The worst is someone says no, so I find the yes," she explained. "You can't get everything you want in life, it won't always go your way. Accepting that allows you to find your story."

    A ‘Golden Girls’-themed restaurant is coming to New York and it’s bringing Betty White with it

    First fans were able to visit “Seinfeld’s” apartment, then a “Saved By the Bell” restaurant came into existence. Now, it looks like people from all walks of life will be able to sit around a table and stare at each other with the judging eyes of Blanche, Rose, Sophia or Dorothy. Yes, that’s correct — a “Golden Girls”-themed restaurant is coming to New York City.

    According to Eater, the spot will be called Rue La Rue Cafe — a concept put together by Michael J. LaRue. Best friend to the late actress Rue McClanahan (who played Blanche Devereaux in the series), LaRue will apparently be adorning the spot with memorabilia left to him by the actress.

    The cafe will be located in the Northern Manhattan neighborhood, Washington Heights and will “serve soups, wraps, salads, desserts, baked treats and wine.” Will there be cheesecake? We’re assuming there will be cheesecake.

    To commemorate the grand opening of the restaurant, LaRue says Betty White (who played Rose Nylund) will be present for the ribbon cutting ceremony. If ever there was an idea to appeal to tourists far and wide — seriously, “Golden Girls” is a popular series the world over — this would be it. Will it work, though? Probably. It’ll be helpful, though, if they have cheesecake.

    B&B Alum Welcomes Number 2

    Adam Gregory (ex-Thomas, B&B) announced on Instagram that he and wife, Sheridan, have welcomed their second child. “My son has arrived!,” he posted. “checkout the snapchat for entire day!

    Obba Babatundé Shares a Powerful Life Lesson

    Obba Babatundé has every reason to cherish the Daytime Emmy he won in May for his portrayal of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Julius, but just as importantly, he treasures the countless memories he’s amassed in his nearly five decades in show business. Earlier this year we chatted with the veteran actor about the gigs (and people) that left a lasting impression on him over the years.

    To what does Babatundé credit his lasting success as an actor? A quick physics lesson helped him explain his theory.

    “There are laws that govern the planet,” he tells Soaps In Depth. “One is the law of gravity. Nobody can argue with that. The other is that, for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. If you throw a ball against a wall, it’s coming back. I think my life is also proof positive of that. If you invest in the good, it’ll keep coming back, because it’s a law of the universe!”

    Ashley Jones Welcomes Son Hayden Joel

    (Pic1, Pic2) Ashley Jones is a mom!

    The former star of The Bold and the Beautiful gave birth to a baby boy on Tuesday, May 24, she confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

    Born at 7:06 p.m., son Hayden Joel Henricks weighed 7 lbs., 9 oz. and measured 21 inches long. He joins big brother Huck, 4, husband Joel Henricks‘ son from a previous relationship.

    “Holding our first child the minute he arrived was the most mesmerizing, perfect moment,” Jones tells PEOPLE. “Everyone says it, but they say it for a reason: my heart bursts with joy and love. I feel this deep need to protect.”

    It took a bit of time to decide on a name for their newborn, Jones admits.

    “Hayden was referred to as Baby Henricks the first two days until we finally named him. We were waiting to meet and hold our son before we committed to a name,” the General Hospital actress explains.

    “We had friends and family texting name ideas for months. But it all came together in the hospital. Joel’s middle name is his father’s name. It’s a tradition that’s been passed on in Joel’s family that we wanted to continue, hence Hayden Joel.”

    Hayden is the first child together for Jones and her husband, who shared in March they were expecting in an exclusive announcement to PEOPLE.

    “I wouldn’t trade any of it. I feel like I’ve won the lottery,” Jones, 39, wrote in her pregnancy blog in May.

    And so does her husband. Henricks told Jones the pinnacle of his life was watching his firstborn, Huck, meet his new brother. Huck was gentle and immediately went to get one of his favorite toys to show Hayden.

    Jones celebrated her son’s impending arrival with a safari-themed high-tea baby shower in April, thrown by her good friends Kaley Cuoco and Marisa Coughlan. The guest list included moms-to-be Lacey Chabert and Ali Fedotowsky, as well as new moms Haylie Duff and Amy Davidson.

    Jones has also shared numerous photos on social media documenting her pregnancy.

    “Becoming a mother has been a lifelong dream of mine. It seems surreal that it’s now happening,” Jones told PEOPLE in March. “Although life as we know it will forever change, Joel and I can’t wait to meet this baby.”

    Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Swims With Sharks — See Her Wild Video!

    Gina Rodriguez makes teen's prom dress dream come true

    Talk about finding the best prom dress ever.

    Jessica Casanova, 17, of Buffalo, New York, recently went to her senior prom in the black Badgley Mischka gown Gina Rodriguez wore to the 2015 Golden Globe Awards, when the actress won for her CW show "Jane the Virgin" wearing the body hugging, strapless look.

    Casanova initially asked Rodriguez over Twitter for the Zac Posen gown that Rodriguez wore to this year's Golden Globes but the actress didn't have that one available, so she said she could borrow the one she wore last year instead.

    The teen's mom spoke with Rodriguez's publicist, who sent the dress in February. Rodriguez's goodwill didn't end there. She also paid for Casanova's alterations to replace the zipper with corset strings.

    And she sent Casanova a personal video wishing her well, saying: "I love you, I'm so proud of you. I'm so excited for you. Dance like no one's watching, have the time of your life. Enjoy every single moment. Make smart decisions and let loose, girl. You look beautiful."

    Casanova watched the video as she got into her limo and said she almost cried the makeup off her face.

    "Gina's so beautiful inside and out," she said.

    Casanova does have to return the dress and hopes another girl gets the same opportunity to wear it to her prom.

    Rome Flynn and Reign Edwards Reveal Details of Their Real-Life Relationship!

    What made THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Reign Edwards (Nicole) feel a little gun-shy about her first on-screen kiss with Rome Flynn (Zende)? What unusual habit of his still cracks her up to this day? Which famous Southern California attraction did they visit early on in their friendship? With their on-screen romance starting to heat back up, these off-screen pals give Soaps In Depth readers the inside scoop about what makes them click.

    Flynn and Edwards occasionally hang out when the camera’s not rolling, often with Zende’s other lady, Felisha Cooper (Sasha), in tow! Earlier this spring, the trio caught a Los Angeles production of Dreamgirls — an apropos choice considering their co-star, Obba Babatundé (Julius), was an original castmember in the Broadway version of musical thirty-five years ago! Flynn notes that he frequently turns heads with such lovely starlets by his side.

    “And when I’m with my [real-life] girlfriend [model Camia Marie] and Reign and Felisha, it’s really funny,” he says with a laugh. “It’s become kind of a funny inside joke between us all.” For more details, pick up the latest CBS issue of Soaps In Depth, on sale now!

    Italian Grana Padano producers sue US soap opera over scene inferring it’s a poor man’s Parmesan

    Producers of the Italian hard cheese Grana Padano are taking legal action against the US soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful for a scene the cheese makers claim denigrated their product.

    In an episode broadcast last year on the daytime drama series about a glamorous Los Angeles family, one of the main characters, security guard Charlie Webber, realises while cooking dinner that he accidentally bought Grana Padano instead of the Parmigiano-Reggiano parmesan.

    “Oh no, I got Padano!” Charlie says, visibly disgusted. He then runs back to the store to buy Parmigiano-Reggiano. The two hard cheeses are both made through a natural ageing process and matured in temperature-controlled warehouses.

    But Grana Padano is produced across a wider geographic area of the Po Valley plain and sells 50 per cent more wheels worldwide. Less matured Grana Padano cheese is often sold at a lower price.

    True cheese lovers - Italians especially – are careful to distinguish the two, though they are often used interchangeably in recipes calling for grated parmesan.

    “What disturbed us was the dramatic way the cheese was denigrated ... the actor reacted to it so negatively, almost as if he had poison in his hand,” said Stefano Berni, general director of the Grana Padano Consortium.

    “I mean, ‘Hey mister, we’re talking about the most widely consumed cheese in the world, a cheese with a tradition going back 1,000 years, made with great quality and sacrifice.”

    The consortium’s lawyers believe the Grana Padano brand was defamed, but also maintain that US advertising rules were violated because the comparison happened during the drama not during a commercial break.

    LA lawyers are investigating whether or not competing US importers may have played a role in how the two Italian cheeses were pitted against one another.

    The long-running CBS soap opera, which first premiered in 1987, reaches between 300 and 500 million viewers daily in over 100 countries.

    The Grana Padano consortium exports €750 million (£570 million) of their cheese annually.

    “The consumers potentially reached by this negative message are hundreds of millions,” Mr Berni said, “But we are not doing this for money. We plan to donate any proceeds to a pediatric hospital in Haiti that we support.”

    Jacob Young Shares His Amazing Singing Voice

    (Watch the Video) Jacob Young (Rick, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) decided to remind his fans what a fantastic singer he is!

    The actor took advantage of the longer video limits on Instagram to repost a video of himself belting out a snippet of “Where Rainbows Never Die,” by bluegrass band The SteelDrivers!

    Soap fans know the actor from B&B as well as his roles as ALL MY CHILDREN’s JR and GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Lucky, but they may not be aware that he is also a talented musician. Young released a self-titled CD back in 2001, and in 2006, starred as Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast on Broadway!

    Young has a fantastic voice full of passion, and this little taste makes us hungry for more — hopefully a new album is in the works!

    Felisha Cooper Responds to Her Haters!

    Fans of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL are firmly divided about whether or not Sasha was in the right to have homed in on Zende the second he broke things off with her “bestie,” Nicole. (Not that she hadn’t tried to land him even while he and Nicole were still an item!) Felisha Cooper (Sasha) acknowledges that her alter ego’s overt sexuality is one of the things that makes her so polarizing.

    “I think she thinks it’s the only weapon she’s got,” says the actress. “I’d love to see her eventually discover more strengths about herself, but right now, she thinks it’s all she has to use.”

    What Sasha lacks in financial resources and paternal support, she more than makes up for in moxie, which Cooper knows endears her to some fans and infuriates others.

    “Some people love her, which I think is so fantastic,” says the actress. “But there are other people who can be downright mean, sometimes. I just think, ‘You do realize I’m not my character, right? I’m not writing the scripts… I’m just trying to give people a good show!’”

    Read all about Cooper’s experiences playing B&B’s newest troublemaker, including why she’s actually intimidated by those seductive bedroom scenes — It’s all in the latest CBS issue of Soaps In Depth, on sale now!

    Karla Mosley Opens Up About Her Struggle With Eating Disorders

    Karla Mosley (Maya, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) wrote about her experiences with eating disorders in a powerful new blog post.

    “I have so much compassion for the young woman who was brave enough to seek out recovery from bulimia and binge eating almost 14 years ago,” she posted on the National Eating Disorders Association website.

    Mosley admitted that trying to be perfect extended into her attempts at recovery, making it more difficult until she realized she was holding herself to an unattainable standard.

    “Yes, I have soft areas on my body,” she said. “They are beautiful and healthy and womanly… and they’re all mine! Yes, I make big mistakes sometimes, I’m really human sometimes… that’s okay, too. Yes, getting work done, going to dance class, and volunteering is great, but so is lying around and watching TV that makes me belly laugh with friends.”

    When asked what she would say to her younger self at the beginning of her recovery journey, Mosley declared, “You’re beautiful, but everyone gets zits. You’re enough, but no one can do everything on their own. You have friends and family, but it’s your differences that make you you… and it’s all great!”

    THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Texas Battle and THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Tatyana Ali Star in New Movie, 'Second Sight'

    Tatyana Ali (ex-Roxanne, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) and Texas Battle (ex-Marcus, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) are co-starring in the new psychological thriller Second Sight!

    The film, which premieres on TV One Saturday, April 23, at 8 p.m. ET, stars Ali as a woman haunted by psychic visions of a kidnapped girl. Realizing that they’re not figments of her imagination, she sets out to save the missing child.

    “She’s a teacher, and one of the little girls in her school gets kidnapped,” Ali previews. “And her visions start again. It’s something she experienced when she was a child, and it starts up again and she has to deal with it.”

    Battle plays Ali’s boyfriend, who doesn’t believe her abilities and visions could possibly be real. “He thinks it’s one of those things where it’s just maybe a bad dream,” the actor explains. “He wants to believe her, but at the same time…”

    As their relationship is tested, the tension mounts and the quest to rescue the kidnapped child takes a dark and sinister turn. “There’s a twist!” Battle promises.

    Gina Rodriguez, Aziz Ansari Among Time's 100 Most Influential People

    The annual Time 100 Most Influential People list issue hit newsstands -- and the Internet -- on Thursday. And in entertainment, at least, the list reflects the diversity Hollywood has been actively working on growing over the past few years, especially on television.

    Featured TV stars include Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez, Master of None mastermind Aziz Ansari, Quantico star Priyanka Chopra, Empire's Taraji P. Henson, reality star Caitlyn Jenner and Melissa McCarthy -- who is still on Mike & Molly, at least for another few weeks.

    In fact, there are only two white men from creative fields on the list: Leonardo DiCaprio, and video game vlogger Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg. The exclusion of white men like George Clooney, Matt Damon, or Eddie Redmayne is a surprising editorial choice, but a bold and much needed one.

    This past year has been about changing Hollywood from the inside out, and the diversity of the list feels more like a natural reflection of the demographic sea change in progress, rather than a "no white dudes allowed" political statement.

    Writing about Gina Rodriguez for the "Pioneers" section of the list, legendary actress and singer Rita Moreno praised the Jane the Virgin star for her hard-earned confidence, writing, "Whenever she talks about herself or about being Hispanic, she's sending the message 'I deserve this, I work very hard, and I'm a good person.'"

    "Caitlyn [knew] the consequences of coming out," writes transgender activist Wayne Maines in his capsule on Caitlyn Jenner, also for the "Pioneers" section. "Because no matter where you come from, how famous you might be or how much money you have, letting America see you in such a vulnerable way is daring and admirable--not self-serving."

    But it's not all about what each person signifies for the group they belong to, either. It's also about being allowed to not have to speak for an entire group of people and just tell one's own experience, like Aziz Ansari, who is praised by Broad City's Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer for Master of None's exceptional specificity of point-of-view.

    Take a look at the full list, which also includes Hamilton genius Lin-Manuel Miranda, basketball game-changer Steph Curry and Creed director Ryan Coogler, among dozens more, over at Time.

    24 HOURS WITH... Jacqueline MacInnes Wood

    ( Daytime Emmy Award nominated Jacqueline MacInnes Wood has traversed the globe, visiting exotic locations to film scenes as Steffy Forrester, her strong-willed character on long-running soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful (seen on CTV Two weekdays at 1 p.m. ET). But during her phone interview with 24 Hours, Wood was actually staying somewhere slightly less exotic - her hometown of Windsor, Ont., where she was spending time with friends and family and supporting the local food scene by "eating pizza every day."


    I used to live in Toronto. I was living in Toronto on my own when I was 17 years old. And the way I made ends meet was by deejaying. It was great, I deejayed all around Toronto. I did it to pay my rent. I don't do it as much now, but I'm going around Europe for all of July, so I'm going to be deejaying in Saint-Tropez, Ibiza and probably a few other places.


    I have to say that my no. 1 spot to film is Italy. I couldn't pick a spot in Italy specifically, but I just love the country, I love the people and I love the food. There's just something about it that puts me at ease. It's so beautiful. I'm going back there again in June and July. It's a great place. We're very lucky to be filming in so many places for The Bold and the Beautiful.


    I'm going with my mom. It's been on my bucket list, so I'm so excited. And the show is pretty big in Iceland, so I'm going to be doing some meet-and-greets, meeting some fans there, and doing some press as well. I'll do the Blue Lagoon, and hopefully see some Northern Lights, and really just travel around and kick back and relax.


    I still love the Toronto scene. L.A. has nothing on it. Toronto has zero f--s given. No one cares about how you look. You'll see people at the clubs that are 19, and you'll see people that are 65, and everyone's just there to 'wile out' and just enjoy themselves and dance and let their hair down.


    I love playing Steffy. It's so different from a movie, where you know the conclusion of your character. It's like every day with our show, and how quickly we film, and the turnaround with scripts, you really don't know what you're going to get. It's such a great challenge. It's a great learning curve. Steffy and I have a lot of differences, but there are similarities. She's spontaneous and she speaks her mind, and she's strong and opinionated, and that's very much how I am. But the manipulative, strategic Steffy? That's not me.


    Our food is incredible in Windsor. We're known for our amazing pizza. I think we got third in the world pizza contest. You can go to any pizza place in Windsor, Ont., and it's just incredible. Naples Pizza, Capri Pizza ... it's incredible.

    Linsey Godfrey Opens Up About Her Emotionally Draining Storyline

    Linsey Godfrey (Caroline, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) doesn’t just wear her heart on her sleeve; she wears her emotions all over her face, as she recently quipped in an interview with Soaps In Depth. “I have no poker face — zero,” she says with a laugh.

    Lately, the actress has had some seriously bittersweet feels for her B&B alter ego as Caroline tries to cherish motherhood while also keeping babydaddy Thomas in the dark about his connection to her child!

    “Pierson [Fodé, Thomas] and I had a scene [a few months ago] where we were both in tears — even though it wasn’t originally written that way — just because we’re so sad for both of these characters,” she says. “It’s a sad situation for everyone, including Ridge, and it makes me feel super sad, too!”

    That’s not to say that Godfrey doesn’t have plenty of other things in her life to celebrate, including being finally free from the heavy prosthetic pregnancy belly she’d been wearing in recent months on the show. The actress chats all about it, including those memorable labor and delivery scenes, in the latest issue of In Depth, on sale now!

    (Pic) It’s been a while since Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter) has made an appearance on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL, but the actor posted a selfie from the gym to let fans know he’s still “Feeling SUPER!

    There’s no doubt that B&B could use a superhero these days, so it would be the perfect time for Carter to pop back into town!

    Colleen Zenk Visits THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL Set!

    (Pic) Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) threw soap fans into a tizzy when she posted a photo of herself and co-star John McCook (Eric) with AS THE WORLD TURNS legend Colleen Zenk (Barbara) on the set of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL!

    With Zenk’s ATWT character a fashion designer, it would be a fun crossover if they introduced Barbara Ryan over on B&B! Unfortunately, it turns out this was just the East Coast-based actress paying a visit to her friend, Lang, while in California.

    “I had never met John before,” Zenk reveals to Soaps In Depth, “but had seen him in The Pajama Game in 1972 when I got my Equity card. We have a million theater friends in common. What a lovely man!

    “We sat in John’s dressing room and just shared stories for an hour or so,” she adds. “And then I got on the train to San Diego!”

    It’s a shame it was just a friendly personal visit, because we can’t stop imagining Barbara Ryan going to work for Forrester Creations!

    So Wild! Inside Ashley Jones’ Safari-Themed High Tea Baby Shower

    (Pic, Pic, Pic, Pic, Pic, Pic) When it comes to motherhood, Ashley Jones is already walking on the wild side.

    The mom-to-be — who’s expecting a son with husband Joel Henricks in May — celebrated the upcoming arrival of their baby boy with a safari-themed high tea baby shower thrown by good friends Kaley Cuoco and Marisa Coughlan on Saturday.

    Hosted by her girlfriends at the Four Seasons Hotel in Westlake, California, the baby bash brought together Jones’ friends and family, including moms-to-be Lacey Chabert and Ali Fedotowsky, new moms Amy Davidson and Haylie Duff, and The Guncles, Bill Horn and Scout Masterson.

    “When I arrived, I saw sweet Kaley and almost started crying. It was a safari paradise,” Jones, who wore a dress from Seraphine maternity, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

    Seasoned party planner Cuoco (she also hosted Davidson’s baby shower!) worked with Lauren Tatum Events to set the scene with people dressed up in elaborate costumes and body art as a zebra and giraffe, who then roamed the grounds and could be seen pretending to eat leaves in the distance as guests enjoyed their afternoon tea.

    “In another life, Kaley must have been a party planner. She adds whimsical details to her parties that are unforgettable and thrilling,” says the former The Bold and the Beautiful star. “Sitting at high tea and watching fabulous acrobatic artists on stilts as safari animals is surreal. I felt like I had been transplanted to South Africa!”

    Guests were also treated to live music courtesy a jazz quartet and were gifted with a pair of Rothy’s flats, a nod to Jones’ “seamless transition” into motherhood.

    As the afternoon winded down, Jones, who’s currently appearing on General Hospital, was joined by Henricks and his 3½-year-old son Huck.

    “Huck was able to see a bit of the festivities,” says Jones. “He loved the animal theme and has a whole bevy of new creatures to play with in his room now.”

    She continues, “This was one of the most memorable days of my life. Rarely am I at a loss for words, but seeing so many people you love in one room supporting the next step of your life is overwhelming. Kaley and Marisa really surprised me. They kept all the details about the day a secret, which made it even more special. I’m still in shock, but full of gratitude.”

    And while Jones, 39, was thrilled to have her family join her for her special day, she admits the circle of support extended beyond the shower.

    “My mom and her two sisters came out to attend the shower, but also ended up helping with the nursery,” she shares. “There’s nothing like having a village of women supporting you.”


    The has the exclusive photos of the Hawaii wedding of B&B’s Darin Brooks (Wyatt) and Kelly Kruger (ex-Eva). "SO excited to finally be able to share this with you guys!” posted Kruger on Instagram. "Head over to @theknot to get an exclusive look inside the most special day of our lives!!

    Ashlyn Pearce Can't Wait to Reunite With her Co-Stars at the Emmys!

    Ashlyn Pearce (ex-Aly, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) was in an audition when the Daytime Emmy Awards nominations were announced, so she had to wait until after she was done to check her messages and discover that she was up for Outstanding Younger Actress!

    Despite the fact that Pearce left the soap last July when her character was unexpectedly killed off, she is thrilled to be honored for those final scenes. “Even if it’s just a nomination, it’s such a great thing for me,” she tells Soaps In Depth. “I had my character from the beginning to the end, and to know that people liked my character and thought that I did a good performance just makes me have a huge smile on my face. So I can at least walk away feeling really, really good about what I brought to B&B.”

    Pearce is also looking forward to reconnecting with her former castmates when they all gather together on Sunday, May 1, for the ceremony and all the parties. “They are so fun to spend time with!” she enthuses. “Twenty-three nominations for B&B is such a wonderful success, so we’re going to be super-stoked, and hopefully we’ll get all the wins! That would be great!”

    Agnes Bruckner Welcomes Son Sebastian Lopeti

    (Pic) Agnes Bruckner is a mom!

    The Returned star welcomed her first child, a baby boy, with boyfriend Alefaio Brewer on Wednesday, March 30, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

    Son Sebastian Lopeti Brewer was born at 1:15 p.m., weighing 8 lbs. 15 oz. He measured 21.5 inches long.

    “We’re so excited to welcome our lion cub into this world,” the couple tell PEOPLE. “He’s truly a blessing and we couldn’t be more happy and proud!”

    Sharing a photo of herself with her son Friday evening, Bruckner added, “I’ve never known a love like this. He’s pure magic. Thank you for all the love. We feel all of it.”

    The birth of her son is a moment Bruckner, 30, has long been waiting for. “From a young age, I dreamed about being a mom,” she told PEOPLE while announcing the pregnancy in October.

    “Now it’s finally happening for real and I couldn’t be more excited.”

    Since her announcement, the mom-to-be has shared her pregnancy journey — including shots of her growing baby bump — on social media.

    Shortly before welcoming her baby boy, the actress posted a fresh-faced selfie of herself cradling her belly, with the caption, “Still very preggo. Whenever [you’re] ready my prince! Lol my hips don’t lie and they in pain.”

    Days later, Bruckner shared another belly shot, captioning it, “My prince, my main man, my love. Can you please come out soon? I can’t wait to smother you with kisses hugs and love already. Momma & Dada are ready!”

    Chaz Bono Dishes About His Role on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL!

    (Pic) Actor Chaz Bono appears on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL today as a pal of Wyatt’s who, conveniently, happens to be a minister who can officiate weddings!

    Steffy and Wyatt’s nuptials prompted Bono’s involvement in the storyline, but the transgender son of legendary entertainers Cher and Sonny Bono tells Soaps In Depth that he wouldn’t be opposed to seeing “Reverend Rydell” return for subsequent blessed events on the show. “It was a really great experience, I learned a ton, and I really loved the people that I worked with,” he says, “so, absolutely, I’d love to return for, I don’t know … a christening? A funeral? Another wedding? So much happens on that show, so you never know! But I hope so!”

    In the meantime, Bono has been busy on other projects, including prepping for an L.A. theater production of the Sam Shephard play The God Of Hell, which he’s producing and acting in. He also has a role in director Adi Shankar’s dark, superhero-themed project Gods And Secrets, in which he plays the nefarious right-hand man to an equally nefarious villain. “I usually gravitate toward those kinds of darker characters, so to play a minister on B&B was really pretty funny,” says Bono, who appears on the soap on Thursday, March 31 and Friday, April 1. “It’s not typically what I do!”

    Antonio Sabato Jr. Is Joining the Chippendales!

    Kyle Lowder (ex-Brady, DAYS; ex-Rick, B&B) has been tapped to star in LADIES OF THE LAKE, a new digital series based on the novel of the same name by DAYS’s Executive Producer Ken Corday. Lowder was instrumental in spearheading the initial concept to bring the page-tuner to the small screen. The series will be adapted and executive produced by Michael Caruso (creator of DEVANITY and WINTERTHORNE) and two-time Emmy winner Sonia Blangiardo will direct. Filming begins next month. Ladies of the Lake tells the story of four wealthy wives living in the exclusive gated community of Avalon. When their abusive husbands begin to turn up dead, Detective Shawn Daniels (Lowder) launches an investigation. “Bringing Ken Corday's novel to life is something that I wanted to do from the first time I read it,” said Lowder in a statement. "To have the opportunity to work with Michael Caruso and all the talent involved, both in front of and behind the camera, is truly inspiring.” Corday added, “When Kyle and Michael unveiled their vision for transforming Ladies of the Lakeinto digital episodes, I was delighted. Our creative collaboration is a burst of fresh energy which stays true to the original story and also introduces these beautiful, intelligent, complex women to a broader audience."


    BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL is on the lookout to fill two upcoming roles: The first is a contract role for a young leading lady, Caucasian, 22-27 years old. She is described as, “worldly, sophisticated, confident and artistic.” The second is a 2-episode stint for the role of Ed De La Rosa, a confident, polished attorney in his 30s.

    Caretaker sues Betty White over unpaid wages

    Betty White‘s former caretaker is suing the actress for allegedly not allowing her to take breaks or paying her overtime.

    Anita Maynard filed a lawsuit last week and newly uncovered court documents, obtained by Buzzfeed, detail Maynard’s claims she was not properly compensated for work.

    Maynard states she worked as a live-in caretaker for the “Golden Girls” actress from Feb. 23, 1994, until March 11, 2016.

    She alleges that she worked for 14 hours and was not paid overtime. She also claims that she has not been paid in full including pay owed for vacation time.

    She is asking the court for wages owed and attorney fees.

    A rep for White did not immediately return FOX411’s request for comment.

    Tracey Bregman's BF Claims Her Son Wants to Kill Me

    "The Young and the Restless" star Tracey Bregman is in the middle of an intense legal battle between her son and boyfriend ... and the bf says he's scared for his life.

    According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Bregman's boyfriend, Brian Landow, got a restraining order against her 19-year-old son, Landon. Brian says Landon pulled a gun on him and has threatened to kill him multiple times -- this is all because he and Tracey have tried to put an end to Landon's out-of-control partying.

    In fact, according to Brian ... Landon hates him so much, the teen hatched a plan straight out of a soap script to sabotage mom's relationship -- hiding panties in Brian's car and dumping cocaine in his coffee.

    The two are set to go to court later this month.

    Obba Babantudé Defends His Character's Despicable Actions!

    If no one likes a cynic, then why do we have so much fun watching THE BOLD & BEAUTIFUL’s Julius rail on about his distaste for his daughters’ life choices? Perhaps it’s because of the way his portrayer, Obba Babantudé, manages to imbue the character with humanity, despite his stuck-in-his-ways — and sometimes selfish — sensibilities.

    “Julius represents much of what we’re seeing going on in the world today, the people who say, ‘Hey, we’re not accepting that,’” says the actor of his alter ego’s reluctance to embrace Maya’s transformation to a transgender woman. “It would be easy enough to make him a jerk, but he’s actually an articulate, intelligent man, who happens to love his children. That’s what makes him so interesting. He feels the way he feels with a sense of righteous indignation.”

    Babatundé chats about the challenges and rewards of playing such a complicated character at this stage in his storied career, including his opinion of Julius’s infamous outburst at Rick and Maya’s wedding! It’s all in the latest issue of Soaps In Depth, on sale now!


    B&B alum Kim Matula (Hope) will make a guest appearance on her former soap on Wednesday, March 16. The actress recently made headlines for booking a new role on the Lifetime series UnREAL, which returns for its second season later this spring. Matula was last seen briefly in April 2015, when Brooke tried to get Hope to stop Deacon’s nups to Quinn.

    UnREAL Taps Teen Wolf, B&B Stars as Everlasting Hopefuls in Season 2

    The Season 2 competition for the heart of UnREAL‘s new bachelor, Darius Hill (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. alum BJ Britt), is heating up.

    Meagan Tandy (Teen Wolf) and Kim Matula (The Bold and the Beautiful) have been cast as contestants on the Lifetime drama’s fictional dating show Everlasting, our sister site Variety reports.

    Tandy will play Chantal, an elegant Southern debutante who believes she’s destined to marry Darius following the tragic loss of her fiancé.

    Matula will portray Tiffany, a hot, smart and rich all­-American girl looking to step out of the shadow of her NFL team-owner father.

    The actresses join Season 2 additions Monica Barbaro (Hawaii Five-0) and newcomer Denée Benton as fellow Everlasting hopefuls, Michael Rady (Jane the Virgin) as a filmmaker and Gentry White (TURN: Washington’s Spies) as Darius’ cousin.


    B&B’s Sean Kanan (Deacon) and GH’s Carolyn Hennesy (Diane) are currently appearing in a new web series called TRUE COLORS. The project, from Kanan’s wife, Writer/Director/Producer Michele Kanan, was a true labor of love for the couple. “The idea behind it was to create a 5-minute romance exploring that spark, that minute when two people fall in love,” Michele explains. “In the first one, we’re focusing on two people who had given up on love because they thought that love was impossible — but when they meet, the chemistry is definitely there.” As for Hennesy’s involvement, Michele laughs, “I begged her to do it! She actually did our radio show a while back and we kept in touch, so when I wrote it, I actually had her in mind. When she decided to do it, I did cartwheels!” The series has a lot of personal touches behind the scenes, Michele explains. The location, Maven Hair Salon in Beverly Hills, was donated by a friend; the couple's pug, Charli, has a cameo and son Peter was, “Our Director of Photography, cameraman, sound guy, lighting expert and film editor. Sean was talent, animal wrangler and craft services and I was writer, director, producer and casting. It was truly a family effort!” To check out TRUE COLORS, click the link here.

    Don Diamont Makes Heartwarming Confession About His Son

    It’s not uncommon for THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Don Diamont (Bill) to be approached by fans whenever he visits his son's college campus — but they're not just fans of the soap!

    “The show is very popular there, so people know me as ‘Dollar Bill,’” Diamont concedes, “but they also know me as Zander’s dad.”

    Diamont’s son, a promising back-up quarterback on Indiana University's football team, has continued to excite Hoosier fans by delivering big plays in clutch situations, like the impressive 79-yard touchdown he ran against Ohio State in early October.

    “I was on my feet,” says the actor, who was in the stands that day. “All of a sudden, he’s in the end zone, and the stadium was just bedlam. Everybody was high-fiving me and slapping me on the back. I just had to sit down before I fell down!”

    It was undoubtedly a proud moment for the senior Diamont, who says his son’s composure both on and off the field is what gives him the greatest satisfaction as a parent.

    “I’m most proud of the fact that every time I’m on campus, person after person comes up to me and talks about what a good guy he is. These are strangers who may have crossed his path or asked him to take a picture at dinner. He’s always engaging with people, and that’s been the most gratifying to see.”

    Catch up with Diamont as he reflects on his entire family’s football-packed fall in the latest CBS issue of Soaps In Depth, on sale now!

    Obba Babatunde Remembers Working With David Bowie

    Just a week and a half after his death, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Obba Babatunde (Julius) shares his recollections of working with the late David Bowie.

    “He was a giant of a man,” the actor tells Soaps In Depth. “He was a visionary and an original. I’m so honored that I had the opportunity to work with him.”

    Soap fans may only know Babatunde from his role as the Avant patriarch, but the multi-talented performer has a musical career spanning stage and screen that landed him in the music video for the legendary rocker's classic single, “Fashion.”

    “It was one of the very first MTV music videos,” he recalls. “He created this dance to go along with the song and so that’s one of the things that I was a participant in.

    “Around ’78, I used to go to London a lot,” Babatunde adds, “I had some friends there, so I traveled to London back and forth a great deal, about every other weekend. The clubs then were all private, so I got a chance to hang out with David Bowie during that time in the late ‘70s. I was a huge fan, and I have a great deal of respect for his artistry.”

    Check out Bowie’s music video here — and keep an eye out for Babatunde!

    The animal lover is appearing on Saturday, March 12, at Point Vecchio in Brooklyn, NY, for a special event hosted by Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY to benefit Hope For Paws.

    “If I see a dog on the side of the road, I stop and get them,” deVry confides. “I raise money for foundations and charities and rescue groups.”

    While he also admits that he likes to change up the organizations he supports, this one is of particular importance to him. “I like to switch it around,” deVry says, “but Hope For Paws does great work. They film everything so they can document the rescues. You pretty much see every rescue they do."

    Tickets are $200 and include a delicious Italian dinner and an open bar with plenty of photo and autograph opportunities with deVry, Napolitano and Aprea as well as lots of fun!

    Katherine Kelly Lang Appears On Aussie Soap NEIGHBOURS!

    While in Australia to promote her line of kaftans and run a half-Ironman race, Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) was even able to squeeze in an appearance on the soap NEIGHBOURS!

    Before moving to Hollywood to join the cast of B&B, Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy) played Kate on NEIGHBOURS, but when visiting her co-star's former set on "Ramsay St.," Lang was able to portray a particularly familiar character — herself!

    "There's a new young girl who's on the show who sees me and says, 'Oh, what are you doing here?'" Lang explains. "Her grandma comes up and tries to drag her away, then she sees me and is like, 'Oh my gosh! It's you! It's Brooke!' I say, 'My name's Katherine Kelly Lang, but you can call me Kelly.' It's just three scenes."

    Her guest appearance on the soap is scheduled to air in March.

    NEIGHBOURS airs on Hulu in the USA.

    THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Ashlyn Pearce Stars In New Movie!

    Congratulations to Ashlyn Pearce (ex-Aly, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL), who has revealed that she's starring in a new movie!

    B&B fans were sad to see Pearce exit the soap back in July when Aly was unceremoniously killed off, but can take heart that they'll be able to see the actress in a new film titled 5150.

    "So happy to announce that I have booked the lead in a new movie!" the actress tweeted with a photo of the cover of the script by Vanessa Giordano. "More info coming soon!"

    According to IMDb, the plot of the film is described as three successful women being challenged by a mentally unstable woman bent on revenge. There's no indication yet which one of the women Pearce will be portraying, but seeing as how Aly went off the deep end before exiting B&B, it wouldn't be too surprising to see her playing the unstable character in this movie!

    Also in 5150's cast is Michael Cory Davis, who B&B fans might remember from his recurring role as Forrester Creations fashion stylist Josh back in the early aughts.

The multi-talented performer is hitting the road this summer with his band, Player (best known for their 1977 hit, "Baby Come Back") as part of the Rock The Yacht 2015 tour.

    "We've combined Player with Ambrosia, Little River Band, Robbie Dupree and Stephen Bishop," he reveals. "It's the kind of relaxing music you'd listen to if you were cruising." But don't expect the crowd for this bill of 70s artists to be full of baby boomers alone — Moss says it's more of a mixed bunch. "People bring their kids, and they love it too," he offers. "My daughter is 16, and she plays the old rock 'n roll stuff as much as anything."

    Also this summer, Moss is headed first to Europe and then to US clubs where he'll be performing with two of his former Player band mates as the more melodic group, Ronn Moss And The Muscle. "What we're going for," he explains, "is a real musical, intimate, coffeehouse atmosphere." It's been nine years since Moss released his solo album, Uncovered. If you've forgotten how great he sounds, check out the music video below that he made for his Web drama, THE BAY using his song, "You're My Addiction."

    Includes more than 200 photos of the cast and crew from the soap's 1987 inception to today. Go behind the scenes, on location and more!

    Foreword by The Core Four

    It was such a surprise for the four of us to realize how time has flown and how everything has changed (especially us), as we viewed the photos of the past twenty-five years. It seems like another lifetime ago when we first walked through the doors at CBS Television City to shoot our first episode of The Bold and the Beautiful. We will have filmed over six thousand episodes by the time this book goes to print. It's amazing!

    From the beginning, we have had that rare opportunity of collaboration with truly talented and creatively generous writers. The co-creators Bill and Lee Bell, and now their son Brad, allowed us to breathe life into the characters of Eric, Stephanie, Brooke, and Ridge. What a creative and fulfilling time this has been for us.

    Now we find ourselves a quarter of a century later, still going strong, still successful, even with the recent shifts in the worldwide television landscape. We like to think we have survived because we have a solid foundation. We know all the layers and complexities of the characters by heart, just as all of you do, having followed us since the beginning.

    We thought you might want to take the sentimental journey with us. We hope you'll enjoy a glimpse into our world backstage, seeing the work that enables us to make a show into "magic."

    We hope you will join us in reliving our lives and our characters all over again.

    Bon voyage!

"Come and hang out in my garage!" Moss explains on the site. "Ronn's Garage will be a place to see me interview artists, musicians, actors, models and people I find interesting to share with you.

    Baby, they're back! THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Ronn Moss (Ridge) and his band, Player, have a new deal with Frontier Records to release a new album later this year! It's been over a decade since Player last had a new CD out. But in the meantime, a three-song EP titled My Addiction is now available for digital download, featuring the songs "My Addiction," "Too Many Reasons," and a new recording of their 1978 hit "Baby Come Back."

    "It's been quite a while since our last record release. Feels great to finally be making new music," says Moss. "I'd say the "stuff of life" has played an integral part of influencing all non-musical activities the last several years. Personal endeavors, other work-related ventures, and just being downright lazy, have all played a part in why we haven't done this sooner than now. But in "now's" defense, sometimes one has to wait until "now" happens before you can actually be there."

    The My Addiction EP is available for download at iTunes. Player's new album is planned for a release in the second half of this year.
