    Jack Wagner Stars With Josie Bissett in New Hallmark Channel Movie, 'The Wedding March'

    It’s a MELROSE PLACE reunion when Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco, GENERAL HOSPITAL; ex-Nick, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) stars with Josie Bissett in the new Hallmark Channel movie The Wedding March!

    The film is scheduled to premiere on Saturday, June 25, at 9 p.m. ET as part of Hallmark Channel’s June Weddings marathon. In it, Bissett plays a single mom who is planning to marry at a picturesque New England inn that turns out to be run by her ex, played by Wagner! Naturally, this brings up old feelings and turns her wedding plans upside down.

    Wagner’s character is also an ex-pop star who is roped into performing at the nuptials when the wedding band cancels, so fans can look forward to hearing him singing again!

    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!

    “Each year, CBS Daytime produces more than 1,000 episodes of programming – the most for any broadcast network – which is only possible due to the incredible passion of the industry’s best creative talent, both in front of and behind the camera,” said Angelica McDaniel, Executive Vice President, Daytime Programs and Syndicated Program Development, CBS Entertainment and CBS Television Distribution. “Our loyal audience has made CBS Daytime the #1 daily destination for millions of viewers and we thank them for contributing to this phenomenal success. Next year will be even bigger and bolder!”

    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!”

    For help with eating disorders, call the NEDA help line at 1-800-931-2237 or click here to visit their website.

    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

    (toronto24hours.ca) 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."

    SHE'S A DJ, TOO

    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.

    HER FAVE PLACE TO SHOOT

    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.

    VISITING ICELAND

    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.

    SHE'LL ALWAYS LOVE T.O.

    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.

    ON HER B&B CHARACTER

    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.

    LOVING THE WINDSOR PIZZA

    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.

    CBS DAYTIME LAUNCHES “NOT SAFE FOR DAYTIME”

    CBS Daytime announced today the launch of NOT SAFE FOR DAYTIME, an edgy new series of digital videos on its YouTube channel that highlights and promotes CBS Daytime’s popular programs.

This is an irreverent, fun, ‘fresh’ way to bring CBS Daytime to our viewers everywhere at any time.”

    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!

    Lawrence Saint-Victor Posts "Super" Selfie — See the Pic!

    (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!

    B&B’S EDWARDS TO SING AT DODGERS GAME

    BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL songbird Reign Edwards (Nicole) tweeted that she will be the guest vocalist tomorrow night (Apr 14) at the Los Angeles Dodgers game, where she will perform the national anthem. “Yay!!” tweeted the Daytime Emmy nominee for Outstanding Younger Actress. Congratulations, Reign!!

    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.”

    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!”

    (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!”

    NEW PROJECT FOR SOAP ALUM KYLE LOWDER

    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.

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."

    “I was too impatient to wait until later,” she tells Soaps In Depth with a laugh. “I was with my family, and we had a big celebration. I had a moment. I’m still kind of on a high from it!”

    When it came to selecting which episodes of B&B to submit to earn her nomination, Edwards relied on a very trusted opinion — and it wasn’t one of her co-stars! “It was just me and my mom,” she reveals. “We went with what our gut feeling was.”

    The episodes they ultimately selected were the ones with Nicole at the restaurant with her parents, Vivienne and Julius, played by Outstanding Guest Performer nominees Anna Maria Horsford and Obba Babatundé. “Those were some of my favorite scenes to shoot,” Edwards confides.

    Jacob Young Calls Daytime Emmy Award Nomination a "Blessing"

    The actor tells Soaps In Depth that he was actually at a car dealership having his SUV serviced so they can trade it in for one that will comfortably seat all three of their children! “So I’ve been stuck in the service department,” he chuckles.

    But that didn't lessen the joy when the show contacted him to let him know the good news. “It’s always such a nice call to get,” Young confides. “And I’m thrilled. I really am. It’s such a blessing to be nominated. I say that all the time, but it really is, to be recognized for the work that you’ve done.”

    Unfortunately, Christen will not be able to attend the ceremony with him, but Young already knows who is date will be! “I’m going to bring Luke with me,” he reports. “We’re going to have a daddy/son day!”

    She was getting out of the shower with two-year-old daughter Aleda when she received a barrage of texts. “One was from our producer, Casey [Kasprzyk], and I grabbed the phone and checked it,” Godfrey tells Soaps In Depth. “He was like, ‘Congratulations.’ I was like, ‘No, it’s not on yet.

    To earn the nomination, Fodé submitted the two episodes with the confrontation between Thomas and Ridge that blew up into a full-on fight. “Kind of about his unrequited fatherly love that he was wanting,” he says, “and then he punched his dad in the face. Classic!”

    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.

    ‘Lawman’ star Peter Brown dies at 80

    Peter Brown (Charles Sanders, OLTL/Greg Peters, Days/Roger Forbes, Loving/Doctor, Generations, Robert, Y&R/Blake, B&B), who played Deputy Johnny McKay on 1960s TV Western “Lawman,” died March 21 in Phoenix, Arizona. He was 80.

    Brown played McKay on ABC’s “Lawman” during the entire 1958-62 run of the series, which starred John Russell as Marshal Dan Troop. Brown was also a regular on NBC Western “Laredo,” playing Chad Cooper during the series’ 1965-67 run. This story of the Texas Ranger starred Neville Brand as Reese Bennett.

    Brown also guested on a number of other TV Westerns, including “Maverick,” “Cheyenne” and “The Virginian.” On the big screen during the period he appeared in Disney’s Hayley Mills musical “Summer Magic” (1963), surfing movie “Ride the Wild Surf” (1964) and Ann-Margret vehicle “Kitten With a Whip” (1964).

    During the 1970s while continuing his TV career, Brown played the villain in the 1974 blaxploitation classic “Foxy Brown,” starred with William Smith in “Piranha” (1972) and starred in the horror-thriller “Act of Vengeance” (1974). He appeared in 1982 prison picture “The Concrete Jungle,” starring Jill St. John, and Fred Williamson’s “The Messenger” (1986).

    Brown did quite a bit of work on daytime soaps, recurring during the 1970s on “Days of Our Lives” as Dr. Greg Peters, on “The Young and the Restless” from 1989-1991 as Robert Laurence and on “The Bold and the Beautiful” in 1991-1992 as Blake Hayes.

    He was a steady presence on television as a guest actor on series including “The Bob Newhart Show,” “Wonder Woman,” “Magnum, P.I.,” “Dallas,” “Knight Rider,” “Baywatch” and “Wings.”

    Brown made his last screen appearance in 2005 in the feature Western “Hell to Pay.”

    Born Pierre Lind de Lappe in New York City, the actor and his family moved West when he was young. While in the Army, he got into acting when he organized a theater group on base in Alaska to occupy his spare time. After his discharge he studied acting at UCLA.

    Brown is survived by fifth wife Kerstin, whom he met in 2008. Other survivors include his children Joshua, Matt and Christi and three grandchildren.

    Carrie Genzel Previews Her Two New Movies!

    It’s a great time for Carrie Genzel (ex-Ali, Days, Nursa, B&B/Skye, AMC), the actress who originated the role of Skye on ALL MY CHILDREN!

    On Friday, March 25, her film They’re Watching will be released to select theaters nationwide, and to Video On Demand. In the comedic horror thriller, Genzel plays the producer/host of an international home renovation show that takes her American crew on location to an Eastern European village, only to become unexpectedly stranded.

    “Let’s just say that the locals are NOT happy that we’re there,” Genzel laughs of the film that also stars Brigid Brannagh (ARMY WIVES). “It’s really, really fun… My character’s a ball-buster, and she’s very frustrated [and pretty foul-mouthed!] through the film.”

    Then on Saturday, April 9, at 9 p.m. EST, Genzel can be seen in the new Hallmark Original, Hearts Of Spring. “It’s about a single woman [Lisa Whelchel, THE FACTS OF LIFE] who owns a flower shop and blogs about parenting,” Genzel reveals. “She attracts some people who aren’t necessarily down with her opinions, including pediatrician Andy Summers (played by Michael Shanks, SAVING HOPE; STARGATE SG-1), who posts using a different handle.” As luck would have it, the gal falls for the good doctor in real life, not realizing that he’s her online nemesis. Her “rival” for his attentions? None other than Genzel!

    “I play another woman whose six-year-old son is the biggest brat on the planet, and I think he walks on water,” she laughs. “I’m after Andy in a big way… I’m just throwing myself at him throughout.” For Genzel, the movie was a chance to reunite with Shanks, the fellow Canadian with whom she starred in Lifetime’s The Pastor’s Wife.

    “We laughed so hard making this movie,” she says. “The soap fans are gonna love it. It’s a great romance that has some fun, quirky characters in it.”

    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.

    Baby Boy on the Way for Ashley Jones

    (Pic1, Pic2, Pic3) Ashley Jones is going to be a mom!

    The former The Bold and the Beautiful star is pregnant and expecting her first child, a son, with husband Joel Henricks in May, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

    “Becoming a mother has been a lifelong dream of mine. It seems surreal that it’s now happening,” Jones, 39, tells PEOPLE. “Although life as we know it will forever change, Joel and I can’t wait to meet this baby.”

    Although the new addition will be Jones’ first baby, Henricks, an IT director of infrastructure, is already dad to 3½-year-old Huck, his son from a previous relationship — and the big brother-to-be couldn’t be more excited.

    “Huck asks every few days, ‘Is the baby still in your tummy?’ ” says Jones. “He latched on to the notion of being a big brother immediately. Now, he’s just ready to put all this talk into action.”

    She jokes, “Although he questions if the baby is still inside me, he’s quick to remind me that my belly is getting really big!”

    Helping raise Huck has given Jones a glimpse into motherhood, but she admits the newborn stage will be an entirely new experience.

    “The transition into becoming a family has been full of surprises and useful lessons. Huck was only 2 when I met him, so we journeyed through potty training and sleep training together,” she shares. “But I’ve been told nothing really prepares you for a newborn at home.”

    Fortunately, other than the occasional late night due to her active baby boy, Jones has had a seemingly easy pregnancy. “I’m feeling amazingly well. Some days are easier than others. I know women that have had extreme morning sickness their entire pregnancy, so I feel blessed any complaints have been minimal,” she says.

    “This kiddo loves to have dance parties while I’m trying to sleep, but that’s hardly a complaint.”

    With two months to go until she welcomes her little guy, Jones, who’s currently appearing on General Hospital, is staying busy filming her daytime drama — and keeping her baby bump hidden on camera!

    “I’m actually still taping General Hospital. I’ve loved working during pregnancy,” she shares. “I started taping General early December 2015, not knowing how long the storyline would last. Executive producer Frank Valentini has been wonderfully accommodating and supportive. I look forward to each new script from the writers.”

    Jones’ next appearance on General Hospital begins airing March 22, and later this year she will star opposite Billy Burke in the independent film Good After Bad.

    John J. York and Réal Andrews Join Katherine Kelly Lang in a New Movie

    (Pic1, Pic2) Some very familiar faces are teaming up for a new indie film!

    GENERAL HOSPITAL’s John J. York (Mac) shared a photo on Twitter with “old friend," Réal Andrews (ex-Taggert, GH), and “new friend,” Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL), on the set of Dear Diary, I Died.

    While plot details aren’t yet available, Lang revealed her character name by tweeting that she is “enjoying this adventure as Michelle Wilson.”

    Andrews shared his own selfie with York from the set, excited to be acting with his former GH co-star again. He also tweeted, “It’s great to be working with such a great cast.”

    As more information about Dear Diary, I Died emerges, we’ll be sure to let you know.

    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!

    SOAP STARS IN NEW WEB SERIES

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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."

    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.

    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."

    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." For more news about Moss, look for his upcoming Keeping Track feature in Soaps In Depth.

    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!

    Ronn Moss Gets Personal

    B&B favorite Ronn Moss (Ridge), who started out his career as a musician in the band Player, is now host of his own online show called "Ronn's Garage", which is currently available for viewing on his Web site www.ronnmoss.com. Fans get an inside look at the actor's home as he chats with some of his closest friends. "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." The first installment of Ronn's Garage features an interview with his pal Lorenzo Lamas (ex-Hector, B&B), who also shows off his cooking skills in the kitchen with Moss's wife and Cookin' Cajun author, Devin DeVasquez.

    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.
