    News, Cast Updates and Scoop

    (News section last updated February 4, 2016)

    Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Shares Crazy Selfies With Co-Stars — See The Pics!

    (Photos) Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) shared a photo, and we don’t know whether to laugh or scream!

    The actress took some selfies on the set of B&B with castmates Rena Sofer (Quinn), Sean Kanan (Deacon), Darin Brooks (Wyatt), and supervising producer Ed Scott — then swapped faces with them!

    The results are hilarious, but also kind of disturbing! We love it… even if we're probably going to have nightmares tonight!

    William deVry Shares a Wild Fan Encounter!

    As part of GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Fan February promotion, the soap is asking the stars questions about their fans — and we can’t believe what one fan asked GH star William deVry (Julian) to do to her!

    In this video (Here), deVry relates the strangest request he’s ever received from one of his fans — and it’s a doozy!

    We understand a fan wanting deVry to act like sexy bad boy Julian instead of himself, but wouldn’t a kiss be a lot better than a slap? Ah well, to each their own!

    Darin Brooks Previews His New Movie

    THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Darin Brooks (Wyatt) is starring in the new movie, Blue Mountain State: The Rise Of Thadland, out today — and it's definitely a nice change of pace for him!

    “On B&B, I play the most romantic, perfect guy,” he says, “and on BMS, I'm a slacker, player — the complete opposite. So it’s very fun," he tells Soaps In Depth.

    The movie is a follow-up to the Spike TV series, BLUE MOUNTAIN STATE, that ran from 2010-2012. It was funded via a Kickstarter campaign, with fans of the show donating to bring their favorite characters back for another hysterical adventure.

    “We just have this cult following,” Brooks continues. “I think it’s really nice that it didn’t just fizzle out [after the show was cancelled]. It’s still going strong, even now.”

    Another bonus for Brooks — he gets to work with his real-life love! The actor met his fiancée, Kelly Kruger (ex-Mac, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS), while they were filming the television series together, and she appears with him again in the film as sports reporter Julia. “We work so well together,” Kruger says. “We just love it.”

    Blue Mountain State: The Rise Of Thadland is out on Digital HD today, so click here for more information and to get your copy!

    Heather Tom Directing Another Episode Of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL — Details here!

    (Photo) Heather Tom is slipping into the director’s chair for another episode of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL!

    The actress, who had previously directed an episode of B&B that aired Jan. 5, posted a photo of a new script with her name listed as director!

    The episode will tape Wednesday, Feb. 2, and is currently scheduled to air on Monday, Mar. 14. When a fan noticed Bill would be in the episode, they tweeted to Tom that she should enjoy directing her on-screen hubby, Don Diamont!

    @GarbageFan98: @BBheathertom you get to direct @don_diamont! That should be fun! #BoldandBeautiful

    @BBheathertom: @GarbageFan98 @don_diamont no kidding- he's totally going to give me a hard time!

    Hopefully everything goes smoothly!

    Ashley Jones Got Married — Read The Details Here!

    Congratulations to Ashley Jones (Bridget, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL), who recently married boyfriend Joel Henricks!

    Jones, who can currently be seen on GENERAL HOSPITAL as Parker, tells Soaps In Depth that they tied the knot in a quiet courtroom wedding. “It was just one of those things that we wanted to do,” she says. “I have quite a few friends who have done that. We’ll have a ceremony and party later, but the actual legality [is handled].”

    In addition to the reception, there’s also the matter of a honeymoon to plan! “I’m not sure where we’re going to squeeze that in,” Jones admits. “We are going to try to do it, but then work came up, which is always good.”

    Jones not only got herself a husband, but also a family in Henricks' young son, Huck. “I’ve been around a lot of children, but once it’s your journey and you have a human being in front of you and you want to become his friend and a guiding force in his life, it’s daunting,” she confesses. “It’s totally different and very real.”

    Best wishes to the happy couple and for a lifetime of happiness together!

    Gina Rodriguez Gives a Shout-Out to Rosa Salazar in Second #MovementMondays Post Amid Diversity Uproar

    Gina Rodriguez posted the second installment of her "Movement Mondays" project today, this time urging Latino fans to rally behind Cuban-American actor Rosa Salazar.

    After highlighting some of Salazar's recent work – including her turns in Divergent and Maze Runner – Rodriguez reiterated the mission of her #MovementMondays:

    "How do we have Latino Stars to represent us? How do we have more Rosa Salazar's? WE MAKE THEM! WE MAKE THEM!" Rodriguez explained on Instagram. "We must show the studios that if they cast Latinos then we will go watch the movies that include us."

    hereisgina : #MovementMondays This is Rosa Salazar. She is a Cuban American actor. She has graced us with her talent in the huge franchises Divergent and Maze Runner. This past year she has skyrocketed and represented the Latino community with grace and honor. Other projects we can support Men seeking Women and Chips projected to come out later this year. Here is proof of our power and the sad reality of our current state. Latinos make up 4% of speaking roles in films ONLY 4% (we are 17% of the population!) Latinos watch 9.5 movies a year making us the highest majority of movie watchers!!!! “You don’t have a major hit without Hispanic moviegoers,” Chris Aronson, Fox’s president of domestic distribution, told TheWrap. We watch the most movies than any other ethnic group, can you even fathom the power we have?!?! It's amazing!! Yet, independent films led by Latinos haven't had the best luck Cesar Chavez (with Latino Lead Michael Pena) grossed 5.6 million. Yet, Latinos make up 25% of the box office! We could get that number up! And when we do they invest more in us! When we show them where the money is going and where their money should be going, I think we can increase this 4%. How do we have Latino Stars to represent us? How do we have more Rosa Salazar's? WE MAKE THEM! WE MAKE THEM! “fewer Latino lead actors in the entertainment industry today, than there were seventy years ago,” a recent study by the Columbia University Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Race shows. We must show the studios that if they cast Latinos then we will go watch the movies that include us, the whole of US, not just the Mexican movies or Puerto Rican ones, ALL OF THEM! We are stronger as a unit. Clearly we are very strong! And our human stories are no different. We should be SuperHeroes and Marvel Comic leads, we should be James Bond and Charlie's Angels (you get my point!) We need more writers, directors and studio heads, which will all be highlighted in the next coming weeks! My question of the week: what if we didn't watch these big marvel movies until they put us in them? What if we used our power to withhold until we are the leads in them?...

    Her comments come in the wake of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, which reemerged when no actors of color were nominated for an Academy Award for the second year in a row.

    Rodriguez started taking matters into her own hands last Monday. Using Oscar Isaac's acclaimed performance in Ex Machina as an example, she urged Latinos to support each other in film.

    "If you want to see Latinos nominated for Oscars, we NEED to support one another," the Jane the Virgin star wrote last week. "The industry sees money, the excuse can't just be racism. We can make a difference in a very powerful way if we unite our support as one Latino community."

    This week, Rodriguez came prepared with a number of stats to back up her point: "Latinos make up 4% of speaking roles in films ONLY 4% (we are 17% of the population!) Latinos watch 9.5 movies a year making us the highest majority of movie watchers!!!!"

    She continued, "Latinos make up 25% of the box office! We could get that number up! And when we do they invest more in us! When we show them where the money is going and where their money should be going, I think we can increase this 4%."

    At the end of her post, she promised to dedicate upcoming posts to raising awareness about the lack of Latino "writers, directors and studio heads" in Hollywood.

    Finally, she left fans with this question: "What if we didn't watch these big marvel movies until they put us in them? What if we used our power to withhold until we are the leads in them?"

    Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez Wants Women to Embrace Their Body Diversity: ' 'Perfect' is an Illusion'

    Is there a better cheerleader for women than Gina Rodriguez?

    The Jane the Virgin star is outspoken about accepting her body as beautiful – regardless of what she might hear from the entertainment industry – and wants other women to feel the same.

    "I am constantly working toward bettering myself, and that means catering to what is best for my body," Rodriguez, 31, tells Yahoo! Health. "It means feeling the most comfortable in my skin and not living up to false perceptions of what that is, or that there is just one body type."

    "It's a long journey because of how often we are bombarded with images of supposed "perfection" and we have to consistently be battling them. We have to remind ourselves that we are enough and "perfect" is an illusion."

    Growing up, it wasn't always easy for Rodriguez to follow that advice. Though "super-skinny" as a salsa dancer in high school, that changed when she went to college.

    "When I was 19 years old, I was diagnosed with thyroid disease, which directly affected my metabolism. It was impossible to keep weight off like when I was a full-time dancer," she explains. "Now, that's when I was in college and the idea of not being naturally skinny scared the crap out of me. That's when I went on a journey of self-acceptance and body acceptance for the place I am at now."

    The Golden Globe winner, who's a regular at her local boxing ring, says part of what makes her feel comfortable in her body is training it to feel strong, and "pushing my body to the limits and then past them."

    Now, along with lingerie brand Naja, Rodriguez is designing a line of underwear for women of all shapes and sizes to help women feel as confident as she does.

    "In societal norms, I don't have the 'perfect' body, and yet I feel like it is, and I feel like I can rock whatever I damn well please," Rodriguez says. "So, it was important for me to bring that perspective into the company — to bring awareness that you don't have to have any specific body type to wear lingerie or feel sexy as hell in it. All women own it, and all women should own it."

    Creating lingerie that's accessible for all women is important to Rodriguez, because she wants them to know that, "beauty comes in all forms."

    "There is no one definition of beautiful, so do not live up to the standards of someone else. Ultimately, you are the one who must love your body. No one else."


    Now it can be told: Ashley Jones (Bridget, B&B) has joined the GH ranks as Parker Forsyth, the professor with whom Kristina has an inappropriate relationship. "They were so secretive about it that I've been scared to tell anyone," grins the actress. "They made it very clear that [Parker's gender] was a reveal and they didn't want me to give it away." Jones has shot two episodes so far, and is thrilled to be part of the show. "I've watched GENERAL HOSPITAL over the years, so it's just a pleasure to see all these people on set and in and out of the makeup room." Her first day, she even ran into her B&B uncle, William deVry (ex-Storm), who plays GH's Julian. "It made me chuckle to myself about how small the soap world is! I still think of him as my uncle." For his part, deVry says, "GH is very lucky to have her. She's such a professional and a lovely person." For more with Jones about her new gig, check out the issue of Soap Opera Digest on sale next Friday.

    Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez Gives Her Golden Globes Dress to a Fan For Prom

    Gina Rodriguez is having a really good start to 2016 - killing it on the red carpet at the Golden Globes, going public with her boo and actually doing something about the diversity issue in Hollywood many are just content to talk and tweet about.

    Evidently a believer in spreading the good fortune around, E!reports that the Jane the Virgin star has offered to give one of her red carpet frocks to a teenager via Twitter so the girl could wear Gina's dress at the prom. How cool is that?

    It all started when a fan wrote that she'd love to wear her dress to prom.

    Rodriguez tweeted back that she only owned a dress from a previous year, and attempted to make sure there was no confusion about which one the lucky fan might get.

    The dress in question was a black Badgley Mischka, which she wore when she won the Glove in 2015; the actress then apparently took the conversation offline to make sure her fan got the hook up.

    Look at that y'all! Dreams really do come true over Twitter.

    The Bold and The Beautiful (CBS)

    Sean Kanan Is Not Leaving THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL

    A rep for THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL insists that Sean Kanan (Deacon) is not leaving the soap!

    Kanan’s screen time lately has been practically non-existent, and Deacon’s marriage to Quinn fell apart pretty much off-camera, which led fans to suspect the actor was being phased out of the cast and online rumors began flying fast and furious.

    But a rep for the show tells Soaps In Depth, “Sean remains a part of the B&B cast. We will see him more.”

    The question remains, however, what storyline might The Powers That Be have in store for Deacon? Trying to win back Quinn? Getting involved in Brooke’s latest debacle over at Spencer Publications?

    Lawrence Saint-Victor To Appear On ZOE EVER AFTER

    () THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter) will be searching for love on the new sitcom ZOE EVER AFTER!

    The handsome actor will be guest-starring as Stephen Hawthorne, a potential love interest for newly-divorced mom Zoe, played by series star Brandy Norwood. Saint-Victor will be appearing in the episode airing tonight, Jan. 26, as well as the one airing on Tuesday, Feb. 16, and shared his excitement via social media with some photos from the set!

    ZOE EVER AFTER also stars Ignacio Serricchio (ex-Alex, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) as Miguel, and airs at 10 p.m. ET on BET.

    New Couple Alert! Jane the Virgin Star Gina Rodriguez Is Dating Ben Schwartz

    Love is in the air for Gina Rodriguez.

    E! News can confirm the Jane the Virgin star is dating actor Ben Schwartz.

    Just this past weekend, Hollywood's newest pair was spotted together at the Staples Center in Los Angeles attending a boxing match between Danny Garcia and Robert Guerrero. We also noticed that the Hollywood stars recently followed each other on Twitter.

    "She's so happy," a source told Us who first reported the news. "She thinks he is so great and all her friends love him."

    While many fans will recognize Gina for her Golden Globe winning role as Jane Villanueva in Jane the Virgin, Ben is also a familiar face to the small screen.

    In addition to appearing on Parks and Recreation, the funnyman also stars in House of Lies as Clyde Oberholt.

    As a new romance begins, Gina's work in Hollywood will still be a huge priority. In addition to launching "Movement Mondays" that helps highlight Latino stars, the actress will also continue to entertain fans with her game-changing role.

    "None of us wants to be defined anymore. We're human, dude. I feel like I was meant to do something—and nothing about me, genetically, is gonna stop me from doing that," Gina shared in Glamour when talking about her TV show. "Jane feels the same way."

    Gina Rodriguez starts 'Movement' for Latino actors

    Gina Rodriguez isn't just speaking out about diversity in Hollywood. She's trying to start a Movement.

    The Jane the Virgin actress shared her plan for "Movement Mondays" on social media Monday, where she hopes to highlight and support "all the various Latino cultures in the media." She explained:

    "With all this Oscar Talk and lack of diversity I decided to start a movement and speak from the perspective of a Latina American who desires to see more Latinos on screen. There are 55 million Latinos in this country and although we all come from various backgrounds our unity can make a movie explode at the box office or a tv show sore to the highest viewers possible. The better these projects do financially, the more money they will spend on putting Latinos In blockbuster films, as leads in tv shows Etc. My solution is this, support is needed."

    She encouraged people to speak with a voice that movie studios will listen to: Money.

    "Right now there isn't one Latino that can Greenlight a movie. ... The industry sees money, the excuse can't be racism. We can make a difference in a very powerful way if we unite our support as one Latino community. ... Let's start making noise with where it matters most, where we put our dollars. Go support these films, watch these shows (mine is on tonight by the way, shameless promotion feel free to watch on the CW) and we can take making a change into our own hands."

    She kicked off the first Monday with support for Guatemalan American actor Oscar Isaac's performance in Ex Machina. "Oscar Isaac, in my opinion had an Oscar worthy performance in this film," she wrote. "Each Monday I will highlight a Latino actor we can support. Let us use our numbers and powerful voices to prove we support one another, to prove we can make a box office hit, to prove they need to support all the various Latino cultures in the media. That can be one part of the solution, so next year we have many movies that are worthy of Oscar contention! #MovementMondays Pick any Latino currently working we can support!"

    Heather Tom To Appear On Primetime Series LUCIFER

    THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Heather Tom is doing a little moonlighting in primetime!

    The actress shared news via social media that she was going to Vancouver to shoot an episode of the new FOX series, LUCIFER.

    (Pic) BBHeathertom: Nice view from my room at @suttonplacehotels I love #canada I could be an expat, I really could... Hey if @donaldtrump2o16 gets elect I might have to! #scary #politics

    Despite the show taking place in California, it films in Canada, but judging from the photo Tom posted from her hotel window, it looks like a spectacular location!

    Loosely based on the comic series published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint, LUCIFER follows the ruler of Hell, who grows bored with his throne and decides to explore Los Angeles, helping the police punish criminals.

    The show debuts on FOX Monday, Jan. 25, at 9 p.m. ET, but there’s no scheduled air date for Tom’s episode yet.

    Karla Mosley Predicts Trouble Ahead

    THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Karla Mosley (Maya) sat down with Soaps In Depth to chat about her alter ego's past, present and future!

    Professionally at the top of her game, married to the man of her dreams and expecting a baby via surrogacy, Maya kicked off the New Year with a sense that all her dreams are finally coming to fruition. Is she naïve to think it will be sunshine and lollipops from here on out?

    “I do think she’s being a bit naïve,” Mosley admits. “She is really grateful and incredibly excited, but I think problems are going to be inevitable. I’m as curious as the viewers are to know where all of this is going, but with everything happening in the Avant family right now, we are in for an interesting ride!”

    She also believes Maya has been shaped by the tumultuous, touching and, ultimately, triumphant path the character has navigated on the show.

    “Whereas a year ago, this was a character who was all over the place, in the last year we’ve got a much clearer sense of who she is,” says the actress. “I think her being transgender is the piece of information that has brought all of that together.”

    Find out what difficult struggle from Mosley’s own past has helped her relate her alter ego’s journey by picking up the newest CBS edition of Soaps In Depth today!

    Linsey Godfrey Shares Adorable Videos Of Daughter Aleda

    Linsey Godfrey’s (Caroline, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) little girl isn’t even two, but she’s already chatting up a storm!

    The actress shared an adorable video of her daughter, Aleda, toasting her at the dinner table, and enjoying her “bubble water.”


    And then Godfrey followed that up with an even cuter video where she teaches Aleda to say “YAAASS HONAAAYYYY!!!!”


    She's so cute we can't stand it!

    Pierson Fodé Lands Himself In The Emergency Room

    (Pic) THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Pierson Fodé (Thomas) gave fans quite a scare on Twitter by posting a selfie from the emergency room!

    Fodé gave no details on what sent him to the hospital, but seemed to be in good spirits, joking about the awful-tasting medicine and mugging for the camera. Plus later, he was posting his thoughts on the recently released trailer for the upcoming comic book movie, Suicide Squad.

    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.”

    (Pic) Looks like Chris McKenna has found a new soap home on B&B. The actor, who played Y&R’s Detective Harding last year, tweeted a photo of himself outside of the CBS Studios with the following caption, "First day of work on a new gig. I could swear I've been here before. #YR #BB @BandB_CBS #AcrossTheHall.”

    Gilligan's Island Vet Dawn Wells Guest Stars on The Bold and the Beautiful

    This certainly sounds safer than a three-hour tour…but then, with the Forresters, one never knows! Actress Dawn Wells, beloved by baby boomers as Mary Ann on the classic sitcom Gilligan’s Island, is set for a guest appearance on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful. She’ll play Alice, a posh Forrester Creations buyer and friend of Eric Forrester (John McCook) and his late wife, Stephanie (Susan Flannery).

    Wells’ episode—airing Friday, Feb. 19—will coincide with Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) deciding to reclaim his place at the Forrester Mansion. Says a rep for the daytime soap: “Ridge holds a cocktail party at the house and invites Alice and the company’s other long-time vendors. But first, he takes down the portrait of Maya [Karla Mosley] that’s been hanging on the wall and replaces it with the portrait of Stephanie.” No spoiler alert necessary: The painting switcheroo won’t go down well with Rick (Jacob Young)—Ridge’s arch-rival and Maya’s super-protective hubby!

    The handsome actor posted a very clever short video to Twitter where he says, “Hate it when I sneezeteleport back to L.A.” and the hashtag “missthesnow.”

    Jacob Young Prepares For Baby Number Three

    In just a few months, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Jacob Young (Rick) and his wife, Christen, will welcome a new baby girl to join big brother Luke, 7, and big sister Molly, 2. The stork won’t be landing in Los Angeles, however, since a little less than a year ago the family relocated from Southern California to a small town in northern Utah.

    “We’d been talking about moving someplace else for a long time, and we spent a lot of time doing research until we found the right spot,” says Young, who commutes back-and-forth to L.A. for work.

    We recently caught up with the actor about life apart from Hollywood’s hustle and bustle and about the preparations being made for the newest member of the family, including the all-important question: Is it time to start driving a minivan?

    “We’ve thought about that,” Young says with a laugh. “The kids would currently fit in our smaller SUV, but we definitely are going to have to upgrade to something a little bigger.”

    It’s all in the latest issue of Soaps In Depth, on sale now!

    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.

    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 Finishes Half-Marathon In Record Time

    While most people were lounging around full of holiday dinner and noshing on leftovers, Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) ran a half-marathon!

    The actress was in Italy over the holidays, but in addition to sightseeing and relaxing, Lang and boyfriend Dominique Zoida spent December 27 running the Maratonina della Cittá Murata!

    She tweeted a selfie with Zoida from before the half-marathon with a massive crowd of runners behind them. Then later, she tweeted out a photo of the two of them holding up their medals after completing the race, saying, "A personal best for me!"

    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.


    Adam Gregory (ex-Thomas, B&B) announced via Instagram that he and his wife, Sheridan, are expecting their second child. The actor posted a photo of the sonogram, noting, “More trouble coming our way June 2016!” The couple, who wed in February of 2010, had their first child, Adam Kannon Gregory II, on February 7, 2013. Congratulations to the happy family!

    Gay Star News chats with first transgender actor to appear on daytime soap in US

    ( Last spring, the character of Maya on the CBS soap The Bold and the Beautiful was revealed to viewers to be a transgender woman.

    The character is played by non-trans woman Karla Mosley as have most trans characters in movies and television been.

    The the Emmy-winning soap has a male transgender character involved in the storyline is played by transgender actor Scott Turner Schofield.

    Schofield plays the character of Nick who has served as something of a transgender mentor to fashion model Ava who is a longtime friend.

    ‘I’m thankful for this year that I got to realize my dream of starting my television career as the first openly trans person in daytime television and for the way that all happened,’ Schofield tells Gay Star News.

    ‘I’m thankful for the amazing and beautiful story that The Bold and the Beautiful is telling and that I can be a part of it.’

    Schofield knows there are at least some viewers uncomfortable with the storyline which has had Maya coming out as trans to Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) who she married last summer.

    ‘There people who are out there saying, “You’re putting this in our face too much,” he says.’But being able to be a trans actor playing a trans role has been phenomenal – particularly being able to play it in a story that was so well done.’

    Schofield has long been an active spokesperson, speaker, and author for the transgender community. He has toured the world with such solo shows as Becoming a Man in 127 EASY Steps and Debutante Balls.

    Story resonating with transgender people

    It’s when Schofield runs into other trans people and hears their reaction to the Bold and the Beautiful storyline that he knows any controversy or backlash it generates is well worth it.

    ‘A transgender woman of color stopped me outside of a clinic, she recognized me and said, “I’ve been watching your story line. It’s keeping me coming back here every day to get my treatments. It means so much to me and thank you so much for being a part of that.”

    ‘This is a woman who is experiencing poverty and all this tough stuff, she gets to see herself reflected in the glamour of a soap opera and that that really helps her through her day. Hearing that means everything and it doesn’t matter that there are some people who don’t want to see that kind of storyline.’

    Such women like the one at the clinic are a world apart from Caitlyn Jenner whose transition has played out on the reality shows I Am Cait and Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

    Wishing Caitlyn Jenner the best

    Schofield has not yet met Jenner but says: ‘I really admire her heart.’

    Of Jenner’s critics he says: ‘Our community eats its own pretty badly. When I sat back and watched that show, she’s made no bones about the fact that she’s privileged. She’s honest about that. And yeah, she got schooled and she took that schooling with grace.

    ‘To watch her have those awkward conversations that I wish I could erase from my own memory much less do it in front of 17 million people. God bless her. If I met her, I’d tell her I think she does an amazing job and I hope it continues.’

    Still, Schofield wonders if its completely healthy for Jenner to live all these changes out in the spotlight.

    ‘She hasn’t had a chance to be with herself. As a trans person, I know that you need the time to really be with yourself and experience. That’s like really deep stuff so I wish she could have some time without cameras.’

    Victoria Justice and Pierson Fode Split

    Victoria Justice and Pierson Fode have called it quits after just over two years of dating.

    "They’ve been on a break for a couple of months," a source close to the couple confirmed to "They are hoping to work things out and still care for each other a lot."

    The Eye Candy star, 22, met Fode, 25, while filming Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List in 2013, where they were spotted holding hands on the movie's Washington Square Park set in New York.

    Despite the end of their relationship, Justice and The Bold and the Beautiful star have remained friendly, and Justice even made an appearance at Fode's 25th birthday party in early November.

    "We didn't know each other at all before filming this movie," Justice told PEOPLE in September. "We met at the audition and there was no romantic intention. It was super professional and we were hanging out and having a good time. It wasn't, I guess, until after the movie was over that I went 'Hmmm ...'"

    Flynn Shoots For The Moon

    The phrase "Go big, or go home," is an apt description for how THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Rome Flynn (Zende) approaches life, but when he came to Los Angeles several years back, abandoning a basketball scholarship to pursue his dream of acting, "going home" to his native Chicago simply wasn't ever an option.

    "I sometimes wondered if I made the right decision, but either way, I knew I would never leave California," he says. "It was a choice between sunshine and cold, and, I mean, come on!"

    Flynn recently sat down with Soaps In Depth to talk about the journey that led him from wannabe to working actor, including the surprise twist that helped spur him on to success! He may be B&B's newest heartthrob, but that's not at all how he sees himself.

    "My angle was never to be a 'sex symbol,' though I will admit I've been working out more, because I pretty much live [shirtless] in that Forrester Sky Lounge on B&B!"

    Check out our feature interview with Flynn in our latest issue, on-sale now!


    Though the new B&B opener aired yesterday (Nov 17) with no sign of Winsor Harmon (Thorne) in it, the actor remains on recurring status with the show. He did take to Twitter to thank the fans for their support through the years: "I want to thank everyone for 17 Beautiful years playing Thorne I love you all Thank U for the amazing run B&B you'll forever B a part of me."

    No Regrets

    THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's John McCook (Eric) may be a terrific actor, but when it comes to that broad smile which seems permanently etched upon his face, that's no put-on. He really is that content with the life he's carved out for himself and the career that he forged by never passing on an opportunity that fell at his feet.

    Soaps In Depth caught up with McCook when he visited New York City as part of B&B's pop-up fan event in September. Being in the City That Never Sleeps reminded the actor of his early career in musical theater and the crossroads he reached when Hollywood offered him an opportunity to make his mark in film and television.

    "If I had stayed in New York all those years ago, I could have been a contender [on stage] in a way that I probably wouldn't have been 10 years later," he says, "but Warner Bros. signed me to a contract and sent me home to Southern California."

    Find out why he has no regrets about trading in Broadway dreams for a stable career at B&B in the latest issue of our magazine, on-sale now!


    Might B&B viewers finally meet Ivy’s mother? BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL sent out a casting notice for “Claire,” a recurring role for a, “strong, beautiful woman who is 50-60 — and must be Australian.” When asked over the summer about the possibility of casting her TV mother, Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy) quipped, “That would be great. We actually spoke of her yesterday on the show. We said that she was in Australia and doesn’t like getting on planes very much, so we’re going to have to figure out how to get her here. Maybe we can shoot a cruise or something?” The role is expected to begin taping in two weeks.

    Betty White will guest-star on NBC’s midseason comedy Crowded

    Betty White will guest-star on NBC’s midseason comedy Crowded, TVLine has confirmed. The veteran actress — who first announced the news via Twitter — will play a therapy patient of Carrie Preston’s character who becomes so attached to the whole Moore family that she won’t leave their house. White’s Hot in Cleveland co-star Jane Leeves also appears as her daughter.

    Agnes Bruckner Expecting First Child

    There’s a baby on board for actress Agnes Bruckner!

    The Returned star is expecting her first child with boyfriend Alefaio Brewer, her rep confirms exclusively to PEOPLE.

    “From a young age, I dreamed about being a mom, and now it’s finally happening for real and I couldn’t be more excited!” Bruckner tells PEOPLE. “I’m looking forward to this next chapter in my life.”

    On Wednesday, the mom-to-be posted a photo on her Instagram account that showed her and Brewer lounging in Hawaii.

    “Soakin up the sun before the move to Cali,” Bruckner, 30, captioned the cute shot of the couple.

    Aside from playing Deputy Nikki Banks on A&E’s hit show, she also portrayed Anna Nicole Smith in Lifetime’s original movie The Anna Nicole Story in 2012.

Stars Lori Loughlin, Erin Krakow, Daniel Lissing and Kristina Wagner are set to return for Season 3.

    Lifetime Greenlights Charles Manson Girls Movie; MacKenzie Mauzy Leads Cast

    Lifetime will be revisiting one of the most gruesome crimes in 20th century America, the Manson Family murders. The network has greenlighted Manson’s Lost Girls (working title), an original movie about the circle of teenaged girls who fell under the demonic spell of Charles Manson and helped carry out brutal killings meant to start an apocalyptic race war. Manson will be played by Jeff Ward. Cast as Manson girls are MacKenzie Mauzy (Into The Woods) as Linda Kasabian, Eden Brolin (I Dream Too Much) as Susan Atkins and Greer Grammer (Awkward) as Leslie Van Houten. Christian Madsen (Divergent) plays Manson family member Tex Watson.

    Manson’s Lost Girls, from Asylum Entertainment, tells the story of Linda Kasabian (Mauzy) as she first meets “the family” at the seemingly idyllic Spahn Ranch hippie commune, where she and her baby daughter are embraced with open arms. Seduced by the group’s free-love lifestyle, Linda revels in a profound sense of sisterhood and acceptance. She is especially taken with Manson, who soon draws her into criminal activities, including late-night “creepy crawls” breaking into and stealing from lavish homes. Linda begins to see the evil in Manson, but the others remain fiercely loyal. Once she becomes an accomplice in what Manson calls “Helter Skelter,” a drug-fueled murder spree that included the brutal death of actress Sharon Tate and her unborn child, Linda breaks away and turns herself in as a witness for the prosecution. Her testimony helps lead to the conviction of Manson and his followers for the infamous Tate-LaBianca murders. Steven Michaels, Jonathan Koch and Nancy Bennett executive produce.

    Manson’s Lost Girls, written by Matthew Tabak (Plain Truth) and Stephen Kronish (The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe) and directed by Leslie Libman (NCIS), will likely get on the air before the long-gestating indie feature Manson Girls, to be directed by Susanna Lo, is completed. The film, which follows the girls’ pre-Manson teen years through their indoctrination into the Family and up to the bloody 1969 “Helter Skelter” campaign, is slated to film sometime this year.

    The Manson Family murders also are the subject of NBC’s drama series Aquarius, starring David Duchovny, which was recently renewed for a second season.

    MacKenzie, most recently seen as Rapunzel in Disney’s Into The Woods, is repped by Gersh, manager Susan Nickells and attorney PJ Shapiro. Grammer is repped by APA and Strategic Talent Group. Ward is with Sweeney Entertainment.

    Manson’s Lost Girls is part of Lifetime’s movie franchise focused on famous crimes. Additionally, the network has been growing its portfolio of “unauthorised” behind the scenes films that tackle such shows as Full House, Saved By The Bell, Beverly Hills, 90210 and, most recently, Melrose Place.

    No Moss Under His Feet!

    (Video) If you've been missing seeing THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Ronn Moss (ex-Ridge) on your screen, now's your chance to see him in person! 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."

    New Bold & Beautiful Book

    Becoming Bold & Beautiful: 25 Years of Making the World's Most Popular Daytime Soap Opera

    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!

    Susan Flannery, Katherine Kelly Lang, John McCook, and Ronn Moss

    Ronn Moss Gets Personal

"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. Each month I will give you sneak peak into my home and an up close and personal interview. So sit back, relax and visit me in my garage often."

    B&B's Moss Is Working On A New CD!

    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.
