I like him. But the promotion and direction of this show as of late reeks of desperation IMO…

Good luck trying to save this -fest.
This has to be the last season for The Talk. No way it can continue after all the controversy that’s gone on. All the smart ones have already jumped ship!

A very bizarre choice for a ladies talk show. It looks just like Good Morning America now.
I haven’t watched since their shameful behavior toward Sharon Osbourne.

This guy is too good looking to be wasted on this show and they will have to put Sheryl in restraints. Anyone who’s watched this show knows this is not just a petty statement but true.

I love seeing Akbar on the permanent cast and enjoyed him over the summer. He balances Jerry and is more serious than him, so it is a good match. Love to Amanda and to my favorite and loyal Cheryl.

B&B’s Kimberlin Brown Shows How-To Do The Sheila ‘Makeover’

Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, brought with it a very much alive and in disguise Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown).

While smart B&B viewers knew there was no way a bear ended the life of Sheila, and that she would return to the canvas to cause more trouble, no one quite knew how she would integrate herself into society to not get caught by the police for her crimes.

Now donning a red wig, some facial prosthetics and a new sexy wardrobe, Sheila tested out her transformation on a tipsy Deacon (Sean Kanan), who had too much to drink.  Next thing you know, the two ‘strangers’ have sex.  Does Deacon really not know its Sheila?

Meanwhile, Kimberlin Brown posted a video on her Instagram of just how the B&B make-up and hair team came up with Sheila’s new look.

The actress expressed: “#behindthescenes #transformation #sheila goes red! Thanks you @danmakesstuff and @tinsleystudio for the wonderful #prosthetics and of course the wonderful Chris Lia Johnson #makeup @stephpaughhair for her #wig work! What a great #team

You can watch the time-lapsed video below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Sheila’s new look? How will B&B incorporate Sheila’s disguise for the next leg of her storyline to still be a part of Finn’s (Tanner Novlan) life? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
