B&B Alum Joins Web Soap WINTERTHORNE!

LindaGray.jpg

How do you make a series centered on a candy empire even tastier? By adding DALLAS star Linda Gray (ex-Priscilla, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) to the mix!

When WINTERTHORNE, the new Web series from DEVANITY creator Michael Caruso, begins production next month, Gray -- best known as DALLAS' liquor-lovin' Sue Ellen Ewing -- will step into the role of matriarch Joanna Winterthorne.

"Linda has a warmth and strength that embodies Joanna," says Caruso, adding that he "wrote this part specifically for her. It's always an honor when you write for a specific actor and they see themselves in the part. This is a moment I will never forget as a producer!"

Martha Madison (ex-Belle, DAYS OF OUR LIVES), who'll play Joanna's daughter, Miranda, admits to being excited about working with the iconic star. "I have so many special memories of watching DALLAS with my own mother," Madison says, "so having Linda play my mother now feels like a full-circle moment!"

WINTERTHORNE promises to flip traditional serialized storytelling on its head by focusing on a female-centric empire in which the men play supporting roles. As well as the aforementioned cast, the sudser also features Gordon Thompson (DYNASTY) and Josh Thrower (90210), with more casting expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Ridge & Brooke: Is It Really Over?

RidgeBrooke.jpg

Nobody can say that THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Brooke didn't try her best! Donning a barely-there outfit, she tried luring Ridge down to the pool for a little fun and, when he nixed that idea, made it clear that she wanted him back! Ridge, however, made it clear he had feelings for Caroline. Skeptical, Brooke insisted that to her, "this looks like a midlife crisis!" Ridge, however, placed Brooke firmly in the friend zone before dashing off to meet Caroline and reaffirming his commitment to her.

But is this really the end for Brooke and Ridge, or were Donna and Pam right to warn Caroline that the much-married duo always wind up reuniting? Should Brooke fight for Ridge, try and steal Bill away from Katie, find a new man... or maybe try flying solo for a while?

B&B Star On The Mend

LinseyGodfrey.jpg

THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Linsey Godfrey (Caroline) was struck by a car in West Los Angeles yesterday, February 2. Thankfully, the actress is expected to make a full recovery.

"Her ankles are banged up and she's had surgery on one foot," reports her manager, Theo Swerissen. "But the doctor says everything is looking pretty good."

It's still too soon to tell how quickly Godfrey will be back on her feet (literally!), but she is expected to be released from the hospital soon. She's in good spirits and ready to go home, so hopefully she'll be back at work before you know it!

"Absolutely," confirms Swerissen. "That's her passion. She loves working, so I think she'll be back on the show sooner than we are even guessing!"

A rep for B&B has said that they have already rearranged their taping schedule to accommodate Godfrey's condition, and will wait until more details on her progress before making any major decisions like perhaps sending Caroline to the Paris office for a stretch or temporarily recasting the role.

Our best wishes go out to Godfrey for a speedy recovery! Get well soon!

THE FOSTERS Returns!

TheFostersCast.jpg

The critically-acclaimed series, THE FOSTERS, which stars Teri Polo and Sherri Saum (Keri, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Vanessa, SUNSET BEACH), returns tonight, Monday, January 19, on ABC Family at 8 p.m. ET with its winter premiere. The show is executive produced by Joanna Johnson (Karen; ex-Caroline, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL), who promises that the story points introduced in the premiere and in last December's Christmas special will continue to play out as the rest of the season unfolds.

"Callie's going to be spending a lot of time with her [birth father] Robert Quinn (played by AS THE WORLD TURNS' Kerr Smith, Ryder). She'll start to develop a relationship with him [which] could be confusing to her," Johnson says. "We're also going to [continue to] explore the friendship between Jude and Connor."

Later in the season, viewers will see guest stars including THE VIEW's Rosie O'Donnell (Naomi, ALL MY CHILDREN) and Patrick Duffy (ex-Stephen, B&B; Bobby, DALLAS). "Last season, Girls United [which Rosie's character, Rita, ran] burned down so she's without a home to bring girls to," Johnson notes. "We love having Rosie on our show. She's such a dynamic, warm person. Patrick's going to be playing Robert's father. We've alluded to the dynamic [with] Robert's father having something to do with him leaving Callie's mother. Callie's going to meet her biological grandfather and it'll be interesting."

Johnson says she grew to admire Duffy's talent when he was doing a scene on B&B as Katie's dad. "I was mesmerized," the actress/producer recalls. "He just nailed it one take. He was so good I forgot I was in the scene!" It'll take a while for Duffy to pop up on the show, but Johnson is hoping he returns for future episodes. "We definitely want to bring him back!"

Is Kristen Alderson B&B's New Hope?

Kristen_Alderson45371.jpg

After Kristen Alderson dropped the bomb that she was leaving the role of GENERAL HOSPITAL's Kiki, rumors started flying fast and furious that the Emmy winner was headed over to THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL to assume the role of Hope, recently vacated by Kim Matula.

However, it turns out that was just wishful thinking on the part of fans, as a spokesperson for B&B confirms to Soaps In Depth that the rumor is untrue. "We are not recasting Hope," they report, "and we have not hired Kristen Alderson."

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."

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!

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.

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!

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!

Making A BOLD Move?

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.

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!

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!

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
c/o The Bold & The Beautiful
7800 Beverly Blvd.
Suite 3371
Los Angeles, CA 90036

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

EmmyTrophies.jpg

Mark your calendars: The ceremony for the 2015 Daytime Emmy Awards has been scheduled for Sunday, April 26! The deadline for performer pre-nomination clips to be submitted will be Friday, November 28, and the final nominations will be announced on Tuesday, March 26.

There have been some new categories added, one of which is Guest Performer in a Drama Series, which should include high-profile-but-short-term actors like GENERAL HOSPITAL's Donna Mills (Madeline) and THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Ray Wise (Ian).

At this time there have been no details released regarding how the 2015 Daytime Emmy Awards will be broadcast, but it will likely be via the Internet as they were this year. (Although hopefully with a better pre-show!)

So who do you think should start putting together Emmy reels for a nomination? Sound off in the comments!

Wood Clarifies Status With B&B

JacquelineMacInnesWood.jpg

Jacqueline MacInnes Wood knows how many THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL fans are itching to see her back on the soap as Steffy, so she took to Facebook to let them know what the deal is. "As much as I love B&B and still wanted to be a part of it," she wrote, "unfortunately we weren't on the same page contractually/scheduling/etc.

"These things happen in this industry," Wood continued, "and I hope all my fans can understand that. I am a huge supporter of [B&B executive producer/headwriter] Brad Bell and the entire cast and crew. Love and kisses to all of my fans. I really do care about you all."

However, as with many soap stars, Wood also admits the book isn't entirely closed. "Hey! If characters an be recast, shot, fall down elevator shafts and come back to life months/years later, then never say never!" she adds. "Love you all and will definitely keep you posted on future projects."

There are reports that B&B is currently casting for a female in Steffy's age range, so a recast could be on the horizon. How would you feel about that? Sound off in the comments!

FOREVER Could Be A Long Time For B&B's Mauzy

MauzyForever.jpg

Broadway's loss is ABC's gain this season — MacKenzie Mauzy's run on FOREVER is continuing on. The theater actress who got her start playing a teenaged and often lovelorn Phoebe on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL is currently having the time of her life as Abigail, the love of medical examiner Henry Morgan's life on ABC's hit drama.

In the story, Henry has the particular conundrum of not being able to die, unlike Abigail — the beautiful British nurse whom the doctor met during WWII — who merely lives on in his memory. "She found baby Abe [who is now older than Henry] in a concentration camp, rescued him and brought him to Henry," Mauzy explains. "They fell in love with the baby and made a little family together."

In "New York Kids," the episode airing Tuesday, October 28, at 10:00 p.m. ET, Mauzy's character will be remembered again, resulting in a deeper understanding of Henry's past. "They will be introducing another character, which is a younger version of Judd Hirsch [who plays adult Abe] but an older version of the baby. So it gives a window into their life together in New York and raising Abe," Mauzy relates. "And it'll show Abigail's dynamic of really pressing Henry to take time off work to take Abe to his game..." How might Henry's memory of juggling his priorities in the past affect the way he handles his current case? Tune in to find out!

In addition to the fun of wearing 1950s costuming, Mauzy is enjoying playing off of charming Welsh actor Ioan Gruffudd and developing their characters' relationship. "Abigail is full of energy, light and humor and always tries to counteract Henry's [tendency] to get very pensive and serious," insists the actress who has more episodes ahead. "I think she's a good balance for him." For more from Mauzy, including the scoop on her exciting new role as Rapunzel — opposite Meryl Streep! — in Disney's movie musical, Into The Woods, check out her Keeping Track feature in an upcoming issue of CBS Soaps In Depth!

EXCLUSIVE: Grace Is Coming Back Again!

Jennifer Gareis (Donna, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) is once more returning to Genoa City as Grace Turner! The actress, who reprised her role as Nick's naughty ex-lover in August, will pop back up on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS on Thursday, November 13. The buzz is that Gareis' summer appearance on Y&R was so successful that the show extended another invitation to the actress, who currently recurs on sister soap B&B. "I love playing bad girls," Gareis has told In Depth. "It's just so much fun because you never know what they're going to do next! They're always conniving and manipulative." No word on how long Gareis will be on the scene this time, but don't be surprised if she continues to reprise Grace on occasion!

Diamont's Son Takes The Field!

DonDiamontAlexander.jpg

THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Don Diamont (Bill) will be in Bloomington, Indiana this weekend to cheer on his son, Alexander, when he takes the field as starting quarterback for the University of Indiana Hoosiers in a game against eighth-ranked Michigan State!

The actor says his son's college football debut took everyone completely by surprise. The team had hoped to "redshirt" Alexander (who goes by "Zander") this season [meaning not playing him to ensure that the freshman would be eligible for four subsequent years], but recent injuries to two other Hoosier quarterbacks forced coach Kevin Wilson's hand.

"Here we go, it's batter up, as they say," notes Diamont, jokingly mixing his sports metaphors. "Alexander is now the starting quarterback for the Hoosiers as a true freshman."

Though it's undoubtedly a lot of pressure to step in for the first time against a team that's ranked number one, defensively, in the Big Ten, Diamont says he knows his son will more than rise to the challenge. "I have a belief in my son, and I get emotional even saying it," Diamont tells In Depth with a faltering voice. "I just know he's going to go out there and compete his heart out. I think he'll show flashes of greatness, and he may make some mistakes, but he's going to be fiercely competitive. He will leave it all out there and give it everything he's got."

The game will be televised on Saturday, October 18, at 3:30 p.m. EST on ESPN, and you may even catch a glimpse of the actor in the broadcast if things go well for the rookie quarterback. "I cry every time I say this," says Diamont, "but Alexander did say to me 'Daddy, when I throw a touchdown, make sure you get down by the railing — because I'm going to hand the ball to you.'"

JaneTheVirgin.jpg

THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL viewers will recognize two familiar faces on the new CW dramadey JANE THE VIRGIN, premiering tonight at 9 p.m. EST: Justin Baldoni (ex-Graham) and Gina Rodriguez (ex-Beverly). Their characters, Rafael and Jane, find themselves in quite the sudsy predicament when Rafael's sister, an OB/GYN, inadvertedly artificially inseminates his specimen into the wrong patient -- Jane. Although the procedure only has a 20% chance of working, of course it does, and virgin Jane finds herself pregnant with Rafael's baby. And because medical treatments have left the cancer survivor sterile, this baby is Rafael's only chance at having a biological child!
