B&B Scribe Promises Heartfelt Holiday Episode!

BBHolidayEp.jpg

Stephanie Forrester's legacy continues this holiday season on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL when the show returns to her beloved Union Rescue Mission on Skid Row in downtown L.A. for a very special Christmas Eve episode! "It could be one of our best Christmas episodes ever," executive producer and headwriter Bradley Bell proudly proclaims of the show, which will air on Wednesday, December 24. "I believe the Forresters have stated, since the show's first Christmas, that they go to the mission and spend the morning there before having their feast at the Forrester estate. So this year, we're actually going to do a 'reality-style' episode there."

When B&B originally filmed on location at the charity, Susan Flannery (ex-Stephanie) served as an interviewer, of sorts, interacting with real people who have come to rely on the mission's services. This year, John McCook (Eric) will fill that role. "We just want to remind the world that there are people who are less fortunate who need help during these times of celebration," says Bell. "We really want to encourage people to think beyond the walls of their home and really reach out and help their fellow brothers and sisters whenever they have a chance."

Marano's SWITCHED Christmas!

VanessaMarano.jpg

On THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, an impulsive Eden struggled to be the better version of herself that her big brother, Michael, expected. Now, Eden's portrayer, Vanessa Marano, plays another confused teen — this one, Bay, a rich girl who found out that she'd been swapped with Daphne (played by Katie Leclerc), an infant who'd grown up to become the deaf daughter of a working-class single mom — on ABC Family's SWITCHED AT BIRTH. But in "Yuletide Fortune Teller," the pre-season-four episode airing Monday, December 8, at 9:00 p.m. EST, things are about to get even crazier!

Inside A Y&R Villain's MANSIONS!

MichaelCorbett.jpg

Even if his last "residence" wasn't a trash compactor on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, it's safe to say that Michael Corbett (ex-David) has much better digs these days! The actor-turned-executive producer has a series called MANSION HUNTERS, which features an inside look at some of the most glamorous and recognizable digs in Hollywood! You can binge on a marathon run of 8 half-hour episodes of the reality series starting tonight, December 5 at 9:00 p.m. EST on Reelz.

Corbett's been interested in real estate since his days on Y&R, where he played Nina's devious husband back in the early '90s. How'd he get the idea for this show? "I thought it'd be really fascinating to see behind the scenes of these mega-mansions that rent out for $100,000 a day [for movie and TV productions]. I put together a show that's about the people who put these deals together."

Some of the stars that have been to the homes profiled in MANSION HUNTERS include movie stars Angelina Jolie, Chris Hemsworth, and Megan Fox. Programs and films that have shot at these places include MAJOR CRIMES, The Aviator, and L.A. Confidential. "There's nothing out there like this show that combines all the elements of mansions, money, movies, Hollywood and celebrities," Corbett says.

Stakes run high in closing the agreements between mansion owners and productions so watch for lots of interpersonal dynamics between the folks that work in the firm that negotiates the deals. Featured on the show is Paul Kim, head of Image Locations, and his team of associates which includes Camila More (ex-Gillian, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; ex-Anna, GENERAL HOSPITAL) and her twin sister Carey More (ex-Grace, DAYS)!

While Corbett's hand is all over MANSION HUNTERS, he won't be appearing on camera in it. "It's a departure for me," he says. Since being presumed dead after accidentally activating a trash compactor in which he was hiding on Y&R, Corbett's continued to act, but he's also branched out into hosting for shows like EXTRA and MANSIONS & MILLIONAIRES.

Part of the fun of watching MANSION HUNTERS is spotting which homes and estates were used in the making of your favorite shows. Corbett previews: "One episode talks about where Lady Gaga fell off a balcony in one of her music videos!"

Good news, Steffy fans! Jacqueline MacInnes Wood is bringing the brunette bombshell back to THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL! And she's not just phoning in from overseas or anything — Steffy will be back in person! Unfortunately, at this point, Wood is only scheduled for a handful of episodes set to air in late January, but while she's not back on contract at the soap, she is recurring, and as such can appear at any time!

AmeliaHeinle.jpg

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Amelia Heinle (Victoria) recently launched a fashion and lifestyle Web site called Dear March, and in addition to the articles and peeks into the actress' personal life is an on-line store where a percentage of the sales are donated to the American Cancer Society in honor of Heinle's sister, Jane, who is currently battling cancer.

Now, Heinle is hosting a special charity event for BelieveBig.org on Sunday, December 14, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the brand new Burberry store in Beverly Hills off Rodeo Drive! (Swanky!

Tickets are available exclusively at DearMarchShop.com, and money raised by the event will be donated to the cancer charity Believe Big in Jane's name.

Spend Christmas With The Bay!

MartinezDaviesBay.jpg

Throughout December, the award-winning Web drama THE BAY will return with two more exciting chapters of story which will be told weekly over the course of eight 20-minute episodes. The chapters will feature another tragic death, as well as address last summer's cliffhangers. Will Lianna (Jade Harlow, ex-Sheryl, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) find out about Janice's (Lilly Melgar, ex-Lily, GENERAL HOSPTIAL) scintillating affair with young Peter? Will Lex (Tristan Rogers, Colin, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) reveal the identity of the person that he thinks Peter's socialite mom, Sara (Mary Beth Evans, Kayla, DAYS) killed? And how might the return of Liza (ONE LIFE TO LIVE's Ilene Kristen, Roxy) affect his recent efforts to revive his relationship with Sara?

To help play out all of these storylines and more, a host of new faces will be joining the cast. "Alicia Leigh Willis (ex-Courtney, GH) and Eric Nelsen (A.J., ALL MY CHILDREN) will play Sara's niece and nephew, Avery and Daniel, respectively," series creator Gregori J. Martin reveals. "Lindsay Hartley (Cara, AMC; ex-Arianna, DAYS) is coming in as a woman from Marly's (Martha Madison, ex-Belle, DAYS) past, Eric Martsolf (Brady, DAYS) will appear in flashback as a younger Lee Nelson, and Judith McConnell (Sophia, SANTA BARBARA) will bring to life a role that fans have been anticipating for years!"

However, the news that has the Internet buzzing is that soap opera veteran A Martinez (best known as SB's Cruz) reunited with former castmates Lane Davies (Mackenzie; Mason, SB) and Nicolas Coster (Jack; Lionel, SB) on set when he taped his December 16 appearance on the show. "I'm playing Janice's father, Nardo. I'm trying to get information out of Lane's [police detective] character, whom the family thinks is not being forthcoming," Martinez offers. "And I got to be the voice of reason with Janice, as is a father's wont to do." Tune in to catch the first two new episodes, which will be released back to back, on Thursday, December 4, at 3 p.m. EST.

Y&R Star's Tragic Loss

KristoffStJohn.jpg

On Sunday, November 23, Kristoff St. John (Neil, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) lost his son, Julian. The actor's ex-wife, Mia, posted the tragic news to Twitter. "Our son was the light of our lives," she wrote, "an artist with a beautiful mind and spirit. He fought long and hard against an illness for which there is no cure. Unfortunately, the pain became too great for him and I dare not say he lost the battle — he simply chose to set himself free.

"My fight for mental health will continue," she added. "They may not find a cure in my lifetime, but we can try and prevent the loss of another beautiful soul."

Our sympathies to the entire St. John family at this difficult time.

DAYS Stars Heat Up The Holidays!

JenEricSingle.png

Make your holidays a little soapier with a new recording of the seasonal classic, "Baby It's Cold Outside," by DAYS OF OUR LIVES stars Eric Martsolf (Brady) and Jen Lilley (Theresa)!

"It was completely her idea," Martsolf says of the recording, giving all credit to his co-star. "She managed to go out there and round up Frank Sinatra's old band from Capitol Records! I mean, the girl doesn't mess around! She doesn't bring in Bob and Frank from the Van Nuys rock 'n' roll shop. She goes out and finds Frank Sinatra's band! These are the things that she comes up with and you can't help but love her enthusiasm."

And this single could be the start of something much bigger for the musical duo! "I'm sure next year we'll do a full-length Christmas CD," the actor muses. "This is probably like a warm-up for what she has in mind!"

You can purchase "Baby It's Cold Outside" for $.99 on both iTunes and Google Play.

Is Nick Really Giving Up On Love?

NickWomen.jpg

In today's very special episode of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, Nick was visited in a dream by all the women in his life. It was a cornucopia of treats, including visits from ex-loves like Grace and Amy, not to mention flashbacks galore! While the beginning of the episode found him blaming the women in his life, they seemed to eventually convince the hunk that he, in fact, might be the problem! "I love women," he declared to his mom, "you know that. But the pain and agony that comes with it? I'm done!" But let's face it... this being a soap opera and Nick being one of its leading men, that seems unlikely! And since they say love comes just when you stop looking, it seems likely that Nick will soon be giving his heart away yet again. But the question is... to whom? Which lucky lady is the right one to help heal Nick's heart? (And no, you can't nominate yourself!) Hit the comments below!

Holiday Romance For Muldoon!

PatrickMuldoonGal.jpg

DAYS OF OUR LIVES' Patrick Muldoon (ex-Austin) is kicking off the holiday season right this weekend in UP TV's new original, Christmas In Palm Springs. "It's about a New York family that's in trouble — my wife, played by Dina Meyer, and I have grown apart and are following our own dreams, but the children are in the middle and still see the love between us," he reveals. "So when my wife has business in Palm Springs and I have a meeting in Los Angeles, the kids conspire [for us to meet up]."

Add in a little Christmas magic from Gabriel (Bill Cobbs) the all-knowing hotel concierge and some wild chemistry between Muldoon and Meyer, and the result is a thoroughly entertaining picture. "Dina and I have known each other since doing Starship Troopers together back in 1997," Muldoon confides. "And as much as Dina is beautiful, she's also tough. We've always had this very funny, competitive banter between us and we couldn't help but bring that to our scenes [in this film]."

Muldoon's character is a theater director whose talk-to is also sure to make viewers grin. "Ian Ziering (BEVERLY HILLS 90210; Cameron, GUIDING LIGHT) plays my hustling agent/dear friend who knows what's going on with the family — he's so great in this movie," Muldoon reveals, adding that another pleasant surprise is in store. "The film also marks my first time singing on television. My character does a rock 'n' roll serenade to his wife at the end!" Don't miss the premiere of this uplifting tale on Sunday, November 23, at 7:00 p.m. ET on UP TV.

Y&R Recap: Nick Befriends Adam's New Enemy!

NickDog.jpg

Billy and Chelsea agreed that they each had significant emotional hurdles to jump, but said that they loved one another and wanted to be together. Jack and Phyllis' engagement party was a major bust, largely because half the guests had to head over to Victor's for a party being held in Nick's honor. But Nick proved that every party really does have a pooper by skipping out on his own bash. Why? Because, having taken his conversation with Grace to heart, he wanted to spend a little time getting his head screwed on straight. To that end, he headed to a cabin in the woods, where he quickly befriended a seemingly stray dog. That pup, however, turned out to be Bugatti, a.k.a. Gabriel's beloved pet! Unfortunately for Adam, Bugatti seemed to immediately sense that the man pretending to be his master was not the real deal!

With Ashley became the latest person to warn Jack that the whole balancing-two-women-at-once thing was going to blow up in his face. Apparently finally listening, he went straight from his engagement party to the GCAC, where he uttered today's massive understatement to Kelly: "We need to talk!"

Will Jack finally tell Kelly the truth... or is he going to wind up stalling yet again? Will Gabriel's cute puppy be Adam's undoing? Hit the comments and let us know your thoughts!

B&B Recap: Eric Calls Rick Out!

RickEric.jpg

Rick was furious when orders for the wildly-overpriced line came pouring in. Overhearing Rick's reaction and realizing he'd attempted to sabotage the line, Eric lost his... let's go with cool. When Maya tried to chime in, Eric put her in her place (meaning on the other side of the office door), then lashed into his son. "You're married to a designer and sleeping with a model," shouted Eric. And while some folks might think, "Huh, that doesn't sound so bad," Eric's point was that his son was making a fool of himself and throwing away a fantastic marriage. When Rick still didn't see the problem, Eric decided to play hardball by saying, in essence, "Maya or the job... you can't have both!"

Exiled from the room in which the big boys were playing, Maya tried getting herself some media attention only to be snubbed by the press. Laughing, Carter said it was "almost as if they have no idea how big and important you are!" When Maya insisted she was living a fairy tale, Carter suggested otherwise. "And you're Cinderella at the ball?" he asked. "Be careful Maya. It might turn out that you're just the stepsister trying to cram her foot into Caroline's shoe." Even as Eric was pushing his son to reunite with Caroline, the blonde was admitting to Ridge that she had fallen for him! Which made it the perfect time for Rick to enter and declare to his wife, "I need you. Could you please forgive me?"

Do you think Rick is sincere... or trying to save his job? Is Maya headed for a fall? Can Caroline forgive Rick, or is she destined to be with Ridge? Hit the comments and let us know what you think will happen!

Y&R Recap: Victor Calls Out Maureen!

NikkiVictorVictoriaBaby.jpg

Victoria's hospital room was hopping as various people swung by to see the new baby, including Victor, Nikki and both of the newborn's potential babydaddies. Given that Victor thinks his daughter should raise the baby solo, Billy had the zinger of the day when he responded, "The Gospel according to Victor Newman, including miraculous conception, no father required!" But it was a visit from Nick that helped the new mom realize it was past time for her to find out who fathered her child.

Speaking of Nick, he very nearly had sex with a more-than-willing Grace, but at the last moment realized he needed to re-examine his choices when it came to women and relationships. "Don't you think," responded Grace, "you could have waited to have this revelation until after we'd had great sex, maybe?" Maureen was just about to spill the beans about Victor's drinking when Victor ripped into Stitch's mom for having put Victoria and the baby in danger. In typical Victor fashion, he threatened to be Maureen's "worst nightmare!" Not surprisingly, when Stitch later swung by to check on his mom, her hospital bed was empty!

B&B Recap: Caroline & Ridge's Triumph!

RidgeCarolineBruised.jpg

At the fashion show preview, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Gloria swung by and caught up with her pal Eric. (Anybody else feel Stephanie rolling over in her grave and think, "Yes! Pair Eric and Gloria up and let the fun begin!"?) As expected, Gloria commented on the price of the gowns, saying they gave her "sticker shock." But once the show began, everyone was wowed by the designs. Watching from backstage, Caroline was thrilled... and wondered where her design partner was. Well, where Ridge was was up on the roof, getting the crap beaten out of him by Bill! When not exchanging punches, they traded barbs, but it seemed pretty clear that Bill emerged the victor. Before strutting away, he told Ridge to stay away from Caroline, saying that if the dressmaker hurt her or Katie, and you have to picture him saying this Terminator style, "I'll be back!"

As Maya prepared to walk the runway in the showstopper, Caroline made it clear that she was the designer and Rick's mistress was basically a hanger with legs. (Even the other models seemed to give Maya a bit of stank face before the show began! And it was kind of awesome when Rick pointed out to Maya, who clearly wanted to hear what a fantastic job she'd done, that the designs probably had at least something to do with the show being a hit.) When it came time for the designers to greet their adoring public, Ridge — being all battered and bruised — sent Caroline to represent both of them. When she returned from her moment in the spotlight, Ridge declared, "I couldn't be more proud. We did this together. Hand in hand." And then took her hand as she got all googly eyed and Rick glared from the sidelines.

Y&R Recap: Things Get Ugly Between Nick & Sharon!

SharonNick.jpg

A heated conversation with Avery left Sharon realizing she needed to find a lawyer, pronto, because Nick was going to pursue custody of Faith. Crossing paths with Dylan, Sharon expected that he'd jump aboard the bus under which everyone in town seemed to want her thrown, but he was surprisingly sweet and supportive. Moments later, however, she had another conversation with Nick, who said that if she thought for even a second that he had any love left in his heart, she was crazier than she'd ever been! Forewarned being forearmed, Sharon called David Sherman and asked him to represent her in the coming fight. Drowning his sorrow with free drinks (the joy of owning a bar... um, and being rich), Nick looked up when someone entered and wondered why the mystery person was there.

Having overheard Avery and Joe talking about the kiss he'd planted on her, Dylan warned his rival that he'd made things personal. Michael met with a new doctor, but refused to allow Kevin to stand by his side in support. Both dealing with family issues, Kevin and Mariah bonded over coffee. Michael and Lauren later got together at the GCAC, where she questioned exactly why he had been so randy of late. (Our advice... um, sit back and enjoy it, honey!)

B&B Recap: Bill Punches Ridge!

RidgeBill.jpg

As the fashion preview was about to begin, Ridge got still more notes from Rick. When Ridge stormed into Rick's office, Maya was, of course, there to butt into the resulting argument. (Sidenote: Maya told Rick that she was nervous, having never done a couture show before. So for those paying attention, Rick made a couture fashion house's lead model someone who has never done a single couture show. Brilliant move, dude!) The more Maya spoke, the more Ridge fumed. When she finally left to get ready for the fashion show, Ridge snarkily said, "You go ahead and break a leg!" Ridge begged Rick not to throw away what he has with Caroline, but his efforts were for naught. In the end, Ridge asked that Rick give Caroline five minutes after the show. "Let her have her say," he begged. "You owe that to her. You owe it to yourself."

Bill talked to Caroline to get his niece's side of the story. "I really want to understand how much Forrester took advantage of my daughter," said Bill, realizing he'd made a bit of a Freudian slip and adding, "my niece." Caroline tried talking her uncle down, but he declared, "You may have married Rick, but you are a Spencer," and that meant Ridge wasn't going to get away with having used her. Tracking Ridge down, Bill declared, "We've got some business." Labeling Ridge a predator who uses-and-abuses women, Bill warned him to stay away from Caroline. When Ridge suggested that Bill might be at least in part responsible for the mess given that he had Ridge dumped from a helicopter, Bill all but laughed in his face. "Will you stop freakin' crying about that?" Bill said before proving his intention to protect both Caroline and Katie by slugging Ridge!

Y&R Recap: Colin Blackmails Devon!

DevonColin.jpg

Having caught Devon smooching Hilary, Colin demanded $2 million to keep his trap shut. Conveniently enough, Neil arrived and thought the scoundrel should join them all for dinner! Word spread about Victoria having had the baby, and everyone was thrilled. Heck, even Victor was relatively supportive (when not trash-talking Billy, of course). Nikki pointed out that either Stitch or Billy would be forever tied to Victoria, but Victor declared neither man was worthy. Victoria's doctor suggested it was time to answer the big question: Who's the daddy? Jack seemed ready to tell Kelly about his having gotten re-engaged to Phyllis (although he probably wasn't going to mention the whole "and-we-celebrated-by-having-sex" thing), but she was called away to deal with her mom's medical crisis.

B&B Recap: Katie Unleashes Bill On Ridge!

BillKatie.jpg

Eric and Rick agreed that Ridge and Caroline's designs were downright gorgeous. In fact, Rick suggested they should sell for about as much as a two-bedroom condo in Brentwood. Ridge, of course, immediately realized that Rick was trying to sabotage the line. Caroline begged Rick to get past his anger and work on their marriage, but he wasn't much interested in doing that. Katie and Bill had a nice catch-up session, during which she filled him in on everything that had been going on in her life. You know, stuff like "the baby is fine" and "my husband-to-be seduced your niece for his own purposes." Needless to say, Bill did not take that last development particularly well. In fact, Bill stormed right over to Forrester so he could confront "the Sultan of chiffon." It just so happened that he arrived in time to find Ridge comforting Caroline with a hug, setting the stage for an explosive confrontation... and today's cliffhanger!

B&B Recap: Hope Takes Off!

HopeWyattAirplane.jpg

On Monday's episode of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL, Hope — having seen Liam and Ivy kiss — pouted until Wyatt agreed to take her back to Los Angeles. On the plane, she finally apologized and Wyatt was, as always, accepting of her behavior. "We have to focus on our marriage," he reminded her, "and that baby inside of you is our future." But two seconds after agreeing to focus on her marriage, Hope drifted off into memories of her relationship with Liam. In Amsterdam, Liam and Ivy confirmed their love for one another and spent the night together. Rick gifted Maya with diamonds and made love to her in his office, but his mind was still on Caroline. For her part, Caroline hoped to fix things with her hubby, but that was about to get a tad more complicated. Why? Because Eric was so thrilled by Ridge and Caroline's designs, that he insisted they continue to work together!

Y&R Recap: Adam Slips Up!

AdamSageConstance.jpg

On Monday's episode of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, Victoria gave birth to a baby girl with the help of Billy and Stitch. Adam continued to pretend he was Constance's grandson, Gabriel, but nearly blew it with his distaste for spinach. Luckily, Sage was on hand to help cover his gaffe. Jeff was intrigued when Chelsea offered to pay him to drop the lawsuit. "It's incredible," she told her dad, "I can actually see the dollar signs bouncing around in your head!" Jack proposed (again) to Phyllis, who accepted. While in bed, he finally admitted that there had been someone else. Good thing he didn't name names, because Phyllis joked — at least we hope it was a joke! — that she'd kill the other woman! Summer and Austin debated what to do for Thanksgiving.

Making A BOLD Move?

Thiebaud3.jpg

Is Kelly Thiebaud jumping ship as GENERAL HOSPITAL's Britt to tackle the role of Steffy on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL?

While ABC does not comment on actor contracts, sources tell Soaps In Depth that Thiebaud had opted not to sign a new deal with GH, and has been on recurring status with the soap until her character could ultimately be written out. Rumor has it that B&B swooped in and made the actress an offer she couldn't refuse!

Alas, the rumor is exactly that, and nothing more. A spokesperson for the CBS soap tells In Depth that there is no truth to it, and that Thiebaud will not be joining the cast of B&B as Steffy Forrester.

Davidson Back On Set At DAYS!

DavidsonDAYSreturn.jpg

Eileen Davidson just can't slow down! The soap-hopping actress, who is currently playing THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Ashley, is now back on set at DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Kristen in what the soap is calling a "can't miss" storyline set to air in early next year! And this is in addition to her real life being taped as one of the newest cast members of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS!

When last we saw Kristen, she had abducted Theresa as part of a twisted plot to have Brady's baby. Of course, as you'll notice in the photo NBC released of Davidson on set at DAYS posted with this article, she doesn't look particularly pregnant. Since DAYS tapes so far in advance, could Kristen be returning to Salem with a little bundle of joy? Unfortunately we'll have to wait until the spring of 2015 to find out what the next step in her crazy scheme will be! Stay tuned!

What You Missed On Today's B&B!

HopeWyattLiamIvy.jpg

For some viewers on the East Coast, Wednesday's episode of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL was interrupted by breaking news. You can catch the episode on CBS.com... or let us catch you up on what you missed!

Eric was caught off guard when he received a surprise visit from Taylor, who told him that Steffy was shell-shocked to learn that Hope had married Wyatt. She also informed him that she and Thorne were no longer an item. Eric thought he'd dodged a bullet when Stephanie's portrait remained on the wall after he gave Taylor a peck on the cheek, but when the shrink left, the picture came crashing to the floor!

Clearly uncomfortable in Ivy and Liam's presence, Hope asked Wyatt to be patient with her during this trip as she tried to come to terms with the fact that Liam was moving on. Wyatt encouraged Liam to get more game where Ivy was concerned and step up the romance. In Dam Square, Hope and Ivy took part in a glamorous photo shoot to showcase Ivy's jewelry designs, but there was clearly tension between the two women. While Ivy was in front of the camera, Liam sidled up to Hope and asked her if she was okay. She admitted she wasn't okay, seemingly admitting that she still yearned for him!

What You Missed On Today's Y&R!

VictoriaTrapped.jpg

For some viewers on the East Coast, Wednesday's episode of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS was interrupted by breaking news. You can catch the episode on CBS.com... or let us catch you up on what you missed!

Maureen refused to let Victoria out of the closet, and closed off the vent when Victoria continued to yell for help. After tossing Victoria's cell and purse in the trash, Maureen called Ben, begging him to keep their secret. She then collapsed with a heart attack! Ben found his mother on the ground, and rushed her to the hospital, unaware that Victoria was trapped in the nearby closet — and going into labor! At the hospital, Stitch called Victoria and left a message cancelling their dinner plans.

Nick and Sharon told Faith that they weren't getting married after all. Upset, Faith stormed off. Sharon asked Nick not to turn Faith's life upside down. Not surprisingly, Nick blamed Sharon completely for whatever happened with Faith, and told her that he would never forgive her. Mariah learned the truth about what Sharon had done from Summer. Instead of condemning her, though, Mariah offered a rare show of support for her mom.

Phyllis discovered Jack and Kelly's texts which revealed their love for each other. Instead of confronting him, the redhead manipulated Jack into a corner, suggesting they get married and have an engagement party, which Kelly could help her plan! Joe surprised Avery at her office. When he suggested she'd soon get bored of Dylan, she slapped him. He responded by yanking her into a kiss. Furious, Avery accused him of taking over Crimson Lights to get back at Dylan, and promised to take him to court to prevent that — as well as sue him if he ever laid hands on her again! Later, Joe went to see Dylan, and suggested they be civil with one another. Dylan suggested he find another coffee place to drink at! Nick asked Avery to be his lawyer to get full custody of Faith.

B&B Will Be Hope-less!

KimMatulaGal.jpg

THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL is about to lose Hope. Actress Kim Matula has decided to leave the role of Hope after four years on the soap. "I can officially confirm that I filmed my last scenes at B&B," Matula posted to Instagram. "For now. I made the incredibly difficult decision not to re-sign my contract so that I could spread my wings as an actor and see what this big beautiful world has to offer."

"We wish Kim Matula the best as she moves on to other opportunities," B&B posted on Twitter. "We love Kim and she will always be part of the B&B family."

"I do not see this as a 'good-bye' but more of a 'see you later,'" Matula wrote on Instagram. "Thank you for giving me an unforgettable five years as Hope Logan and thank you to every single viewer who sat side by side with me on this journey."

Hope is currently the center of a major love triangle, caught between brothers Liam and Wyatt, but a spokesperson for the show says that there are no plans to recast at this time. How do you feel about the exit? Can B&B go without Hope? Or should they recast? Sound off in the comments!

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' fans in the area around Baca Raton, FL, are in luck — Judith Chapman (Gloria) will be bringing her one-woman show, Vivien, to the Keith C. and Elaine Johnson World Performing Arts Center on Saturday, November 8 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, November 9 at 4 p.m.

"She was so young, and yet she had these two iconic roles: Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With The Wind and Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire. But unfortunately, she suffered with what we now call bipolar."

The play, for which Chapman has already won rave reviews, will celebrate the 75th anniversary of Gone With The Wind. For tickets, call 561-237-9000 or visit: events.lynn.edu.

Correction!

RenaSofer.jpg

In the current issue of CBS Soaps In Depth on sale now, there is some incorrect information in our annual Holiday Gift Guide. It says that when ordering the Amorra Candles, you can also request a free autographed photo of Rena Sofer (Quinn, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL). Unfortunately, that is not the case. You can still order the actress' scented skin care candles at www.amorrabeauty.com, but for an 8x10 glossy of Sofer, you'll have to go through the soap!

Simply send a self-addressed stamped envelope with your photo request to:
Rena Sofer

7800 Beverly Blvd.
Suite 3371
Los Angeles, CA 90036

We apologize for the error and any confusion it may have caused!
