The Bold and the Beautiful’s trifecta of Don Diamont (Bill), Heather Tom (Katie) and Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) were presenters at the  recent 43rd Annual Daytime Creative Arts Emmys, where they were on hand to support those hard-working teams and individuals behind the camera who help make daytime programming come to life.

Following their presenting duties, they stopped by to speak with NATAS official host/interviewer for the evening, Michael Fairman, where the trio had some fun dishing about: working with one another, their thoughts on the revisiting of the Katie/Bill/Brooke triangle, why the Logan women have battled booze when they have been involved with Dollar Bill Spencer, and more.   From what we can tell there are plenty of twists and turns ahead in the triangle, and speaking with them it’s no doubt why these three have been an enduring staple of the most watched television show in the world.

Watch Don, Heather, and Katherine’s interview after the jump! Then weigh in  …  are you rooting for Bill and Katie, or Bill and Brooke to end up in each others arms for the long term?  Comment below.

Bill and Brooke all the way. They are Soul Mates. Bill and Katie are more of a father daughter relationship just like Caroline and Ridge. Bill and Brooke love each other for who they are not what they expect each other to be. Bill and Brooke belong together.

Look at the sweetness Don and Kelly are divinely Brill all I want is to watch a Brill story unfold and lose myself in their charm. B&B’s Super Couple Soul Mates the way they should have always been!

Bring on our Brill. They are a brilliant coupling…hated each other in the beginning, became friends and were there for each other through their tough times, and then fell madly in love knowing this should have been the forbidden love. The unfolding of their love story was captivating; please let this loving couple be together again!

Bring on someone new already for Brooke. Katie is boring with every guy she is with. The show should be renamed Bold & Beautiful Triangles.

Any story line is great besides Rick trying to take over the company and telling Ridge he’s not a Forester.

What a fun interview!! Love DD, HT & KKL. It is great to see they are enjoying playing out the current storyline. I’m glad they are revisiting the Brooke/Bill/Katie storyline because it’s far from finished. Brooke and Bill have amazing chemistry and they belong together. Bill married the wrong sister, Katie is too young and needy for Bill. I wish Brooke and Bill will just tell Katie the truth rather than blaming her so they can all move on with their lives. I can’t wait to see how this all goes down as long as Brill is the end game.

Kelly Ripa Talks On Her New Memoir ‘Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories’

Talk show host and All My Children alum, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) is opening up about her life and times in her highly-anticipated memoir available now, Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories.

Ripa chatted exclusively with PEOPLE who got some of intel and dish on what’s included in the book.

Kelly told PEOPLE, when she landed the gig as the new co-host of Live with Regis and Kelly, with the late Regis Philbin back in 2001, she felt like she was “getting shot out of a cannon.”  Ripa was also appearing on All My Children at the same time.

She tells the story of when her agent called with the offer, Ripa was told: “They want you to know who your boss is. It was very ominous, and it did not feel good.”  Her agent also said the show didn’t want her, “bringing an entourage.” She brought two people. “I came with hair and makeup,” Kelly says. “It was not an unusual thing for people on a television show to show up with.”

She added that Regis greeted her with executive producer, Michael Gelman, saying: “Uh-oh, Gelman, it’s got an entourage.” It?!  Kelly expressed that she “felt horrible.  He was probably trying to be funny, but at the same time it felt like a pile-on.”

As for Philbin’s attitude at the time, Kelly shared, “I understand that probably he didn’t want a co-host, but the network wanted me to be the co-host and I didn’t think I should pass up that opportunity. I don’t think it was fair to him. But it was also not fair to me.”

The actress-talk show host-producer also talked on her marriage to Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo), whom she met while both were on All My Children, sharing that they were, “too young to get married! On paper it should not have worked and when it didn’t work, we really worked at it. We fought for our marriage when it would have been easier to quit and throw in the towel.”

According to the book publisher, HarperCollins:  “In ‘Live Wire’, her first book, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. Whether recounting how she and Mark (Consuelos) really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.”

So, will you be ordering your copy of Kelly’s memoir? Let us know in the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

Roark Critchlow on His Return to DAYS and Working With Cady McClain

It’s been 12 years since Roark Critchlow appeared on Days of our Lives as Dr. Mike Horton, the brother of Jennifer Horton Deveraux (Cady McClain). However, fans have been excited to see him back on their screens when the series teased his appearance in the extended fall preview.

Now with Jennifer spiraling downward (now that her pill-popping addiction is back), it seems like a good time for Dr. Mike to return to Salem to help his sis. (And if the promo for this week’s DAYS is any indication, it certainly looks like Jennifer is going to be involved in a car crash and need medical assistance or at least some brotherly love.)

Roark initially appeared as Mike back in 1994 and left the soap back in 1999. He returned in 2010 for a few episodes honoring the late Frances Reid (Alice Horton) who was Mike’s grandmother.

In an interview about his return with Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Roark talks about working with McClain as Jennifer, when he previously worked with Missy Reeves in the part.

Critchlow expressed on sharing scenes with McClain: “Her character is going through a lot. She and I dropped in really easily, I felt. It was a very nice, natural care for each other. It wasn’t difficult, that’s for sure. Obviously, Missy is a super-duper person. But you don’t compare people. Cady and I chatted. We got on good. In terms of story, I thought we pulled it off nicely as being people who’ve known each other their whole lives.”

Look for Roark to make his DAYS re-emergence on the upcoming October 3rd episode of the Peacock streaming series.

So, looking forward to seeing Roark and Cady sharing scenes together? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first check out this week’s promo for DAYS below.

John Cena Sets World Record After Granting 650th Wish for the Make-A-Wish-Foundation

There is nobody more requested at the Make-A-Wish Foundation than John Cena. The 16-time WWE wrestling champ-turned-actor for years has granted the wishes of children with critical illnesses for the non-profit foundation.

Now comes the news from the Guinness Book of World Records that Cena has broken the record for granting 650 wishes to children who have put him as the person they want to meet the most.

To put this into context, no other celebrity has ever granted more than 200 wishes in the 42-year existence of Make-A-Wish.

According to a press release, Cena started granting wishes back in 2002 and completed his 100th in 2012, now he is at 650.

Recently this past June, John visited Misha, a teenager with down-syndrome who fled Ukraine after his home was destroyed. In order to keep Misha’s spirits up, his mother told him they were on their way to find John Cena. You can watch their story below, followed by a video package honoring Cena’s 500th milestone with the organization.

On a personal note: as someone who at one time worked as the Director of Communications for the Make-A-Wish-Foundation at a locale chapter in the U.S, I know the smiles and the impact a visit from a child’s personal idol can make to help lift their spirits when trying to cope with critical health issues.

Congratulations John!
