Adrienne Frantz's return to B&B, "Brad Bell and I had been talking about this for a year!"

Adrienne Frantz first day back on the set of The Bold and the Beautiful was this past Tuesday.  Her character, Amber Moore, will first reappear on the series on July 1st.  On-Air On-Soaps spoke to Adrienne today, to talk about “crossing over” back to her original home at B&B, and to fill us in on what went on behind-the-scenes.  Here are some excerpts:

Frantz on her return to B&B and that it was a well-planned out career move: “Brad Bell (exec prod, and head writer, B&B) and I have actually been talking about this for a year.  And it was all in talks, and I knew everything that was happening.  I knew I was going over to B&B right away, but I could not say anything to anyone.  It was hush-hush.  And, it was hard not to tell anybody, because I wanted to share my excitement with everyone.  I read somewhere the other day, that I had announced I was coming to B&B months ago on my Twitter account, but I don’t have a Twitter account.  So, I was like, “That is funny? I don’t twitter!”

Frantz clarifying it was her decision to head back to B&B:  “I wanted to go back to B&B.  And there were no hard feelings on Y&R, or anywhere. They didn’t have much for my character at Y&R, and Brad has a thing for Amber, and he knows exactly what he is doing with her, and how to write for her.  He knows the crazy Amber that she is, because he created her.  Amber needs to be spiced up a little, and that is what Brad intends on doing. ”

Frantz that there is one more episode with Amber coming, and Little D! “There will be another episode coming up on Y&R soon that will explain the transitional period of coming over to B&B.  So it explains it all.  You will see that.   Regarding Little D – I can’t give that away quite yet as to what happens there. You will just have to watch!”

Frantz on her big Y&R break-up scenes with Daniel:  “I liked the scenes.  I thought it was great.  Everyone felt like super emotional.  Michael Graziadei (Daniel) is one of my really good friends.  You know it’s funny. I went to work the other day and saw all the Y&R people and they said, “No one had to say goodbye to you because you are right here.”  My dressing room is next to Jess Walton. (Jill, Y&R)

Frantz on if she is at all concerned that once on the half hour soap, that even though others have come on like gangbusters,  it usually reverts back (most of the time) to the drama with the four main characters. “I am not concerned.  She is Amber and she will find her niche.  It may take awhile to meld into the storylines, but right off the bat from the first day you can see where she is going with it all.  I can say this much – Whip offers her a job at Jackie M.   She will be back in the fashion world.  And, this will be about Amber coming here and trying to start her life all over again. And she is really excited about doing that, and she is her happy self again.  Yes, she is going to miss Daniel, but she is interested in starting her life again.”

Frantz on starting her first tape day back at B&B on the same day the soap was being recognized by Guinness Book of World Records for Most Popular TV Soap. “My first day, and the show gets into the Guinness Book of World Records. It’s almost as important (Laughs).”

Frantz still comes forth as how obnoxious she was when she first joined B&B. She was such an egomaniac in her past interviews. It was her decision to leave Y&R and go to B&B? Yeah, because an employer has no say in who he hires. Even her little “joke” comparing her return to the Guiness announcement is typical of Frantz. Years ago she claimed that it was her decision to quit SuBe yet TPTB at SuBe told tvguide magazine that she was fired. The apex of her rudeness in her first run as Scamber was when she proclaimed that she… Read more »

SID is reporting that Harmon, Spears and Hearst will be axed for cast cuts. I called it. The minute Frantz’s return was official, Brad bell would get rid of some actors to make way for her return. Awful! Brad bell is repeating history again by axing actors that should be on B&B instead of airtime hoarder Frantz and hated Amber. They have not used Thorne for years now, and he’s only there to reunite Eric/Steph. They could have recasted Thorne w/ an actor w/o a texan accent. Thorne should have married Tay, and then Alexandra could have been this demon… Read more »

the above caption should “bottom feeder” instead of bottom chef, some people have nothing better to do than condemn others instead of taking care of their own faults.

The show is virtually unwatchable as it is. They need to expand to an hour if they want to accomadate all these bad actors and even worse storylines.

Well, I hope the character will fare better on B&B then she did on Y&R. I never cared about her and could never picture her with Daniel. So. I wish her well and hope not to see her whining again….

Having watched B&B since it original air date but losing intrest after the last Sheila storyline although I love Susan Flannery as actress. Since then I followed the show only on paper and internet and sometimes in a lost moment watching a single episode. Unfortunately the show was getting worse with each passing year and is just becoming one long drag of stories and characters with no development at all. At the moment is just unbearable to see how a 23 minutes show has so many characters with no storylines at all. And what I hate the most about the… Read more »

Brad bell really needs to step down as headwriter. I would not be surprised if the show does not even mention how Justin is writter off the show, or if Thorne leaves town or is there but not part of the storylines since Brad bell has done the same for so many characters. The show will be even worse w/ Amber set to hog all the storylines.

Good ridiance……pile all crap over to B&B …. It should win prize as the Jerry Springer of soaps. Take Malcolm with you. The original Malcolm was great and went on to bigger things.. this guy is a thug!

The Dish hosted by danielle Fisher recently dissed Amber/Daniel on Y&R. Anyone watch it? The dish host was hilarious and Frantz was awful, unrealistic and OTT as usual in her clip.

Why isn’t Michael fairman on air on soaps reporting that Harmon is now officially recurring? The blood bath on B&B has officially begun now that Frantz has been hired back to further drag B&B down. Thorne is a legacy character that has been on since day 1, and the audience would rather have Thorne in storylines than Amber! It’s easy to keep B&B focusing on the Forresters, so putting Thorne on recurring is a bad move while people like Rick, Ridge, Hope, Steffy are on contract and Amber is returning and this new guy Liam is joining. Harmon is a… Read more »

Lori Loughlin Returns To Acting; Set To Reprise ‘When Calls The Heart’ Role in GAC Family’s ‘When Hope Calls’

Former Fuller House, Edge of Night, and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin, has landed her first acting role since jail time and her part in the College Admissions Scandal; where she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid half a million dollars in bribes to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, accepted into the University of Southern California.

While, Jade is now also in this season’s Dancing with the Stars, now comes word that Loughlin has gotten her first acting gig since all the legal trouble, and while still on probation following her two months in jail.

Look for Lori to reprise her beloved role of Abigail from When Calls the Heart on its season two spin-off on GAC Family, When Hope Calls.

According to Deadline: Loughlin will appear in the two-part Season 2 premiere titled When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas, to air on Saturday, December, 18th.  Lori was last seen on TV as Abigail in Season 6 of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart before she was let go over her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Last week, speculation began that Loughlin may be back working after a report surfaced from Mercury News  that she had been granted permission by a Boston federal judge to travel to Canada for about a week in late September-early October for “a filming production project.”

So, what do you think about Lori’s return to acting following serving jail time? Will you be watching her as Abigail on When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas? Comment below.

For those of you who don’t think COVID is a real thing, it’s f–king real, dude.”
