On Wednesday, Collins revealed the news that following her Emmy victory she is now a married lady tying the knot with Michael Cooney.  The two share a child together, daughter Jemma who was born  in January. Collins posted the big news on Instagram: “Just when I thought the week couldn’t get any better.” “#Mr&Mrs #Hitched.”

Here, here! Miss Collins (Mrs. Cooney!) was a joy in the role of Avery on Y&R. I enjoyed a character who had an aura of goodness about her, much needed counterpoint (at her introduction) to her sister Phyllis, and the other Genoa City plotters and schemers. Avery is the kind of character every daytime drama needs to keep balance in tone and story. If things were different, I would think Avery could have eventually been a strong leader on the Y&R canvas as Viki Lord became on OLTL. Miss Collins was also very relatable as a character.

Well said! I get this feeling now that Nick is available and once Dylan learns the truth about Sharon & Christian there will be an opening for Avery to return. Emmy should help!

Having never seen OLTL my comments rest with Young and the Restless. I agree with you. Avery’s departure was demeaning considering her stature which was carried throughout her role as Avery. You are correct regarding the balance issue which has been sorely missing in the past couple of years. The best to Miss Collins; wish she could return to Y & R!

Good for Jessica! She’s such a classy lady and she deserved to win after the way Y&R treated her.
Now we just need to have Kelly Sullivan win an Emmy!!

Great interview! I was so happy that Jessica Collins and True O’Brien won, not only because they truly deserved it but it’s a big F U to the ones who fired them.

It sucks that it couldn’t have been aired on TV or online.

B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang and Ashley Jones Reveal They Want Brooke & Bridget To Deal with Their Shared Past with Deacon

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) of The Bold and the Beautiful was last Friday’s guest on BOLD Live, and during her interview with B&B supervising producer and host, Casey Kasprzyk, none other than Ashley Jones (Bridget) made a surprise appearance.

Once Jones arrived on the livestream (late in the episode), the discussion turned to wishing that Brooke and Bridget would get the opportunity to deal with the fallout from years ago between mother and daughter.

If fans recall, Bridget was married to Deacon (Sean Kanan), and then he had an affair with Brooke, and then Brooke became pregnant with Hope.

On BOLD Live, Lang said, “There is so much good story there.”  She then added, “I honestly feel Brooke and Bridget never dealt with that. It’s honestly something that was pushed down.”

Ashley shared on the current state of B&B’s episodes: “This is the juiciest the shows been in a long time.”  And on Brooke/Deacon/Bridget, Ashley concurred with Kelly: “Oh. 100% … they never dealt with it.”

Watch BOLD Live with Katherine Kelly Lang and special guest Ashley Jones below.
