Liz Lemon’s former assistant on 30 Rock, Cerie Xerox, is making a move to daytime.  Not really! But the actress who played her, Katrina Bowden is on her way to be a series regular on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful!

According to TV Line who broke the casting news, Bowden will be a woman who shares a past with Dr. Buckingham (Wayne Brady).

Look for the character named, Flo, to hit the canvas on January 14th.

Could this be a triangle on its way involving Taylor/Buckingham/Flo?

This isn’t Bowden’s first soap turn. She previously got her career started on One Life to Live in a multi-episode story arc back in 2006.

In addition to appearing in all seven seasons of 30 Rock, she has also appeared in PsychUgly Betty, New Girl and several Lifetime Movies.

So, intrigued by the addition of Bowden to B&B? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I remember when OLTL did those arcs back then. Wasn’t it Michael Malone? Whoever it was it was over-hyped and weird LOL. She looks like a Brigitte recast.

The absolute last thing B&B needs right now is another new series regular. Just a few months ago, B&B introduced Zoe, a newbie who has not exactly become an established character yet. Just last week, they introduced her father, who is brand new to the show and who we know nothing about. Now they’re bringing in a woman from his past? This is all too much, too soon. Y&R is dealing with the same issue with the Rosales family.

Characters should be well-established on their own before being inserted into a ready-made love triangle. And with everything Taylor is dealing with right now in terms of mental health, is ANOTHER love triangle really the best thing for her?

B&B has too much going on right now. Too many new characters that don’t add anything to the show, while characters like Wyatt, Sally, Rick, Maya and Justin languish on the back-burner. I’d much rather see any of these characters as opposed to Reese, Zoe or this new woman.

Also, “Flo”? They really couldn’t have picked a better name?

Usually when they introduce new characters, it means that SLs are coming to a climax, but I can’t see that happening anytime soon. There is still so much ongoing with Hope, Liam, Steffy, Brooke, Bill, etc. Too much for a half hour, and now more? It was so boring the other day, I didn’t even watch it all.

Why are they adding story to peripheral characters? Don’t really understand.

Whomever she is, I hope she takes the good Dr. back with her. I love Wayne Brady, but not in this role, and certainly not as a love interest for Taylor.

Constance Towers Returns To GH As Helena Cassadine … But Just How Does She Appear?

Now, any General Hospital fan knows that if there is skullduggery and evil going down, Helena Cassadine (whether dead or alive) is usually somehow involved when it comes to the lives of certain people in Port Charles.

And … some major storyline news from TV Line reveals that on next Monday’s August 19th episode of the ABC soap opera, Constance Towers reprises her role as the evil one herself … Helena!

Apparently, look for Helena to appear in a flashback with none other than Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) and about Drew Cain’s time in Afghanistan.  That scene might hold a key to just what Shiloh wants now that he has implanted Drew’s memories into Franco (Roget Howath), thanks to Dr. Cabot’s work.  But could what is revealed also relate to the story that will see Billy Miller (Drew) exit the canvas later this month? Stay tuned.

Viewers last saw Helena alive in story until November of 2016, but then she was part of Jake’s hallucinations that were a part of the chimera storyline that climaxed at the Nurses’ Ball back in May of 2017.

So what do you think Helena’s presence in a flashback will reveal? And, who is ultimately having that flashback? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Daytime Emmys To Merge Younger Actor & Actress Category Into One As Gender-Inclusive Categories Are On The Rise

The upcoming 47th annual Daytime Emmys are already making some changes to key categories and specifically this one that affects daytime drama performers.  Word from Variety is that NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) is going to announce that they are combining the Younger Actor and Actress categories into one gender-neutral category

Not only will the Younger performer category be gender-inclusive, but network soap performances will be combined with digital drama series performances for the category.  Previously, for this past Daytime Emmys, NATAS had changed the Guest Performer in a Drama Series to be gender-inclusive.

This category was initially created in 1985 when it was called the Outstanding Ingenue and then from there tweaked into Outstanding Juvenile Female and Male, and more recently that morphed into the Younger Actor and Actress categories.

Former GH star Hayley Erin (Ex-Kiki) and former DAYS star, Kyle Pettis (Ex-Theo) will now be the last female and male to win the two separate categories with this new move for 2020.

Fans of film and TV have noticed that on several award shows on MTV: their Movie and TV Awards and their VMA’s, there are several gender-inclusive categories, as well as the Television Critics Association Awards who for instance doles out Outstanding Individual Achievement in Drama in comedy.
