B&B Hits The Road!

KimJacqui.jpg

THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Steffy, Hope and Liam all end up in Aspen, CO, next week, when the city serves as a backdrop for their love triangle. The soap spent several days in the ski town last month filming scenes on the streets of downtown Aspen, the gondola and the top of Aspen Mountain, inside The Ultimate Taxi, and at the private home of executive producer and headwriter Brad Bell.

B&B stars Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy), Kim Matula (Hope) and Scott Clifton (Liam) will be the center of the scenes, but local television personalities were also called in to appear in the episodes, which air from Wednesday, October 5, through Tuesday, October 11. Plum TV's Ramona Bruland and Oliver Sharp will play Spencer employees, while Othello Clark will be playing a friend of Rick Forrester's. Additionally, John Barnes of Aspen's The Ultimate Taxi will appear as himself. As previously reported, BACHELOR hunk Jake Pavelka is returning to the soap as the Forrester pilot, and will appear on Thursday, October 6, and Tuesday, October 11.

Beemer Plays Dead On MIAMI!

Beemer.jpg

Tune in to CSI: MIAMI this Sunday, October 3, and you will see THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL hunk Brandon Beemer (Owen) in a rather different way: he'll be playing male escort Derek Vaughan, the murder victim! "It was lots of fun," Beemer tells Soaps In Depth. "It's fun to work on something different. I got to do some awesome makeup!"

Titled "Stiff," the episode follows the CSIs into the world of male gigolos when they uncover a rather unusual murder weapon. "It's CSI: MIAMI. They've got to have something to investigate," Beemer quips. "Unfortunately, I get to be the guy that dies, but I also get to have some [flashback] scenes with some hot chicks."

Sharing scenes with CSI: MIAMI star Eva La Rue (Maria, ALL MY CHILDREN) wasn't the only soap connection Beemer encountered on the set: THE MENTALIST's Eric Winter (ex-Rex, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) also guest-stars in the episode as Joe Grafton, Derek's business associate. "He works at the hotel; he's kind of a gigolo," shares Beemer, who played Shawn on the NBC soap. "We weren't on DAYS at the same time, but we've met through Nadia [Bjorlin, ex-Chloe]." Tune in to CBS this Sunday night at 10 p.m. ET.

Will Rogers Be Back?

CaneLilyColin.jpg

On September 22, Tristan Rogers (Colin) tweeted that he'd taped his final scenes on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, and now he shares with Soaps In Depth that his alter ego will be leaving Genoa City sometime in late October. And it appears as if the story is being left open for his possible return! "It's been great," Rogers says of his experience on the soap. "I have nothing but positive things [to say] about the work we did."

Still, his exit came as a bit of a surprise since he felt that Colin and Jill were a popular duo, and the character also has several familial ties to Genoa City denizens like Cane, Lily, and, of course, Genevieve. "The Colin/Jill relationship was very solid," shares Rogers, adding cryptically, "He leaves with a question mark."

Might Colin return? Y&R doesn't comment on casting rumors or storyline speculation, but stay tuned to the soap to find out! In the meantime, look for Rogers to appear in THE BAY's upcoming second season.

Y&R's Driscoll Is Engaged!

DriscollNelson.jpg

When THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' John Driscoll (Chance; Coop, GUIDING LIGHT) decided to pop the question to his long-time girlfriend, Beth Nelson, he considered a series of venues. "I thought maybe I would propose on the beach, having her family come out and surprising her. Then I figured maybe we'd go back home to Virginia. Then I thought, let's go to New York to the restaurant we had our first date at," he shares with Soaps In Depth.

Yet when Nelson, who works for an air lease company, needed to go to Paris for an air show, the actor realized that he couldn't ask for a better location. "She was going to be there for four days, where she had to work one day," he says. "We decided to turn this into a mini-vacation. She had no idea, but I thought, 'Oh, my gosh, this is the perfect time to do it."

B&B's Clifton Pops The Question!

ScottNikki.jpg

Last weekend, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL star Scott Clifton (Liam) announced via Twitter that Nicole Lampson was no longer his girlfriend -- and then posted a picture of Nikki's hand showing off a sparkling engagement ring!

"We've known we were planning on getting married since one of our first dates," the actor tells Soaps In Depth. "When you know, you know. We've always been, in some sense, 'engaged to be married.' When I met her, we basically went on one date. She stayed at my house until five in the morning, then she had to leave and go do something. She came back the next night and she just never left."

Clifton officially popped the question earlier this month, and now, Lampson has the bling to prove it! "She said she'd think about it. I'm still waiting to hear. She's auditing my engagement ring," he quips. "She said yes right away."

Although the couple haven't made any firm wedding plans, they have decided on the location. "I have a very, very small family, and she has a huge family. We're not going to travel. We're certainly going to try to get married here [in Los Angeles]. All of her family is local."

No matter where the ceremony is held, Clifton just can't wait to spend the rest of his life with Lampson. "One of the first things that drew me to her was that, intellectually speaking and comedically, she and I have the exact same sense of humor. When Nikki and I look at the world, we see the same thing. She truly understands how my mind works better than anybody else in the world. I feel the same way about her."

Congrats to the happy couple!

June may be the bridal industry's most popular wedding month, but for two CBS Daytime stars, September was the month to marry! Both Julia Pace Mitchell (Sofia, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) and Heather Tom (Katie, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) are newlyweds!

Mitchell married business executive Stephen L. Hightower on September 4, in Lebanon, Ohio, near the groom's hometown. "We were planning a lakeside ceremony, but due to rain, we had to move everything inside," shares Mitchell. "Other than that, everything went smoothly and the day was absolutely incredible. I'm so happy, I'm still pinching myself."

Tom tied the knot with her longtime musician beau, James Achor, on September 17, just a few weeks after announcing their engagement.

"Had you not rallied behind me, and stirred up ALL kinds of trouble, Nikki would [be gone]. I can never thank you enough."

Y&R's Bell Talks The Web!

Lauralee.jpg

Soap fans rejoiced when word spread that the cancelled ABC dramas ALL MY CHILDREN and ONE LIFE TO LIVE would find a new home on the Internet thanks to Prospect Park. "I was brought up on TV, so if I had an option, I'd watch shows on TV," admits THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Lauralee Bell (ex-Christine). "But I watch my kids, and they grab their computer when they want to watch something. It's funny. It's a whole different mentality today. I talk to so many people who watch Y&R now on the Internet."

Bell knows something about what she speaks. After all, not only is she the daughter of one of the pioneers of daytime, the late Y&R and THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL creator William Bell, but she's spent the last couple of years exploring the Internet by launching two Web series, FAMILY DINNER and JUST OFF RODEO. "Do I think soaps have this brand new survival by being on the Internet? Absolutely!" she declares. "For all we know, they may get a different kind of viewer or bigger viewership. It's trial and error at this point. I know a lot of people who have a TV in the same room their computer is, and they're watching a lot of stuff off their computer."

Will Bridget & Nick Reunite?

NickBridget.jpg

After an extended Hawaiian vacation, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Bridget will be back in town with her tot, Logan, in tow when Ashley Jones returns to the soap starting Tuesday, October 18. The Forrester heir left L.A. last year shortly after giving birth to the child conceived during a one night stand with her father-in-law, Owen. According to TV Guide, who exclusively broke the news, Jones will return to the soap on a recurring basis.

"If I went back, I'd really want to be a part of an on-going story," the Emmy-nominated actress told Soaps In Depth earlier this summer, adding that there is a whole lot of unresolved issues between Bridget, her ex-hubby and his stepfather, who just so happens to be her babydaddy. "You never know if the baby is really Owen's or Nick's. When you look at history, Bridget has more with Nick than anyone else. But does that mean that he's her soulmate? Does that mean that he's who she's supposed to be with? Sometimes I think that the person she's ultimately meant to be with, she hasn't met yet."

Jones also shares that not being a contract player with B&B is perfectly fine with her. "I have always wanted to recur," she points out. The actress has been working like crazy during her break from the soap, and not inking a contract will give her the flexibility to continue to do so. In addition to a recurring role in the upcoming FX series OUTLAW COUNTRY as the trophy wife of an underworld crime boss, and starred in and executive produced the Lifetime movie Secrets Of Her Past, which will debut on Sunday, September 25.
