Welcome Ashleigh! Hopefully she will get involved with Wyatt because he deserves so much better than Hope who is making me sick dating two brothers at the same time.

I hope that her interest will be in Wyatt as well.But I would rather if they writers would just get rid of Wyatt completely and take that wicked thing he calls a mother with him.I so want Hope to choose Liam but I don’t think that is going to happen because I have rad otherwise.I am hoping that they have changed their minds about the direction of the show and has changed it to Hope going back to Liam.I can’t believe that they would have them go through all of that with their loved ones working together to keep them… Read more »

liam and Hope together is like watching paint dry. Liam is such a cry-baby and hypocrite How many times has he went from Hope to Stefy to Hope to Stefy to Hope I hate those two together when they show them I turn the TV Liam needs to be with Aly they are the same

Wyatt does deserve better than Hope after his latest bout but I still want her to choose him and marry him. I think Liam should be with this new girl.

Let Liam have her, Wyatt and Hope belong together. Liam
and Hope are boring, where as Wyatt and Hope have
awesome chemistry.. Maybe Ivy can do the same for Liam?

cindy
Guest

I think that since Hope is forever always going back to Liam she should just stay with him… I loved Hope and Wyatt together but if she cant learn from her past and and move on with a new guy then let her watch that new guy be with someone else and see what she let slip away because she got comfortable!!! I want to see Ivy and Wyatt together!!!

Most of these ‘new actresses’ – and I use that term loosely – are HORRID!!! This new one is no exception. ENOUGH with the Wyatt/Hope/Liam boring stuff!!! Think of some NEW story lines Mr. Bell! We’re sick of seeing Brooke/Ridge/ Taylor story replayed again and again – and now, in a new generation. As for Ridge and Kati=automatic click of the remote – just like when Liam shows up hypocritically whining. Rarely watch this anymore, and when I do, I find I’ve not missed a single thing.

Eric’s niece, Jessica Forrester who was on the show for several years in the mid-90’s was also John’s daughter. So is she Jessica’s sister and Maggie’s daughter too?? Hope Brad Bell explains.

Bill
Guest
Bill

Back in 1994 when Maggie and Jessica came in town it was mentioned (for sure) that Jessica had a sister. But if Ivy was her sister 20 years ago she should have been a toddler… Maybe John divorced Maggie and he had Ivy with another woman. We will see…

Why are they introducing a new character in the Forrester family? Why don’t they do what GH does and create new characters and that have no ties to existing, historical characters and families? Seems really dumb.

Nk3play2
Guest
Nk3play2

While I like most of the new characters GH introduces, a lot of fans are sick of new characters. A large majority would rather these characters have ties to the canvas in some way. YES, Ivy would be a newbie, BUT she is immediately considered “core” because she is a Forrester.

andrew hass
Guest

Ivy is a character fans never knew existed.So there’s no emotional connection to her.Yeah her sister Jessica and mother Maggie were on the show before but that was over 18 years ago.Plus i think most fans know the show is going to pair Ivy with either Liam and/or Wyatt.So her main purpose on the show is mostly romantic.

Well, the actress who plays Steffy is very busy with her new venture and the show she’s doing for a cable network that she’s not even on the show anymore even though she’s still in the opening credits. The guy who plays Thomas is doing God only knows what these days. With Taylor gone, their presence is not needed at all. Besides, once Hope chooses either Liam or Wyatt, Ivy will most likely be paired with the one that doesn’t get chosen by Hope. But yes, the possibilities for Ivy are endless with Liam, Wyatt, Oliver, and maybe even Carter… Read more »

It’s Steffy with an aussie accent. Wonder which Spencer man she’ll land. My guess is Wyatt

As if.. Steffy was an 11 out of 10- looks wise, but Ivy’s maybe a 3.. She makes the other girls look tiny, cause she’s very big boned & wide, especially compared to Hope & Ali, & Carolyne.! & Not near as god an actress.. Not even close.! Steffy was stunning, & a brilliant actress.! Loved her & miss her

Guess Brad Bell decided the inbreeding was becoming too much if they wanted to continue the show without creating a new generation with other family members, so they’re expanding the familial bloodlines.

O goody a new triangle is on the horizon — who will poor Ashleigh have to choose between or perhaps she will have to fight it out with another gal for the same guy. Either way it will not be original or interesting because it has all been done before.

I hope she gets in a triangle with Liam and Wyatt. Allowing Hope to see how fickle Liam really is and in the process realize she’s not the only princess around. And I admit I was always team Steffy and Taylor.

I hope the best for this actress. A Steffy like character has been long overdue on this show. I can only dream that Ivy Forrester will not be sucked into the triangle of doom, but who am I kidding, of course she will, because there is nothing else for her character to be involved in. I have no greater hope for this character than I do, any of the other “new” characters that have been introduced within the last year to BnB. Amazing new characters with loads of possibilities seem to be wasted on s/l’s that go in circles and… Read more »

While I’m looking forward to seeing what she brings to the show, I’d much rather B&B bring Steffy back, I miss Jacqueline MacInnes Wood! It doesn’t make much sense to me why the show would introduce a never-before-heard-of Forrester instead of bringing back Steffy or Thomas, two well-established next-generation Forresters. It would only make sense seeing as Ridge is now back in L.A. too. Hopefully she gives Hope some competition with Liam or Wyatt because this whole dating two guys thing is beyond ridiculous and goes completely against what Hope used to believe so strongly in, and what she berated… Read more »

Hopes chracter is hopeless at this point. Why would they (the writers) take everything Hope stood for , take it away, and turn her into a slut that has been sleeping with wyatt and now is dating two guys? Why doesn’t Liam tell hope about the sauna episode? Maybe that would help Hope decide tjhat she does not want to be with that immature little boy, he is not even a man, and he is very childish and acts like a school boy (teenager) with his harmones flairing up like a 10th grade boy. All he wants to do is… Read more »

Not excited about this new character at all. Nothing against the actress; I’m sure she is talented. But I believe an existing younger Forrester should have been brought back into the fold. Not another made up one. My guess is she is most likely here to prop up the 2nd triangle from hell. Nothing else. Oh and knowing Brad Bell, he’ll write it in the Steffy and Thomas Forrester sold her their shares.

Ashleigh is a total peach and a fine actor as well. I look at her and melt – such a babe! I’ve long been a B&B addict and when Ash’s character Kate was killed off in Neigbnours I wondered what her next career move would be. So it’s great I can enjoy watching her in this new glam role. I’m hoping Bell’s scriptos will inject some ginger & spice there to wake languishing Dope character up to herself. Love a bit of gritty sparky unpredicatablty for a change. You Hu….Anyone listening there…..? B&B has the makings of rivetting top shelf… Read more »

…..and the new “Ridge”…omfg….so badly cast. Mr. Shambles. Looks like he should work on a dumpster, so NOT the sophisticated aesthete at home on the runways of Paris & Milan.Totally lacking the elegant suave savoir faire and slightly sinister malevolence that Ron Moss brought to the role. I hope beautiful Ivy doesn’t end up in his clutches.

I hope she’s a new love interest for Wyatt so that Liam and Hope can finally be together. It’s ridiculous how long we’ve waited for the manipulations to end and the two of them to finally have some happiness. I hope the secret she stumbles upon is something incriminating about Wyatt and his mom. It’s about time they stopped getting away with controlling every situation.

I always believed Hope and Liam belonged together – but I dont anymore – I think Ivy and Liam would be a great match!! Some fresh blood will be great for the show – I do feel Quinn and Wyatt need to go and Hope should end up alone – she had her chance with Liam and she blew it!! Glad Steffy and Taylor are not coming back for the foreseeable future – those characters are awful – they behaved like wicked witches. Ivy & Liam – that’s the way to go…and Quinn and Wyatt need to go!! Good Luck… Read more »

agree – can’t stand Wyatt!! He is supposed to run his mother’s company – why does it appear he is now running Forrestor??!! Or HFTF at least – who the hell is he – when Liam was with Hope he didn’t manage her line!!
If he knew Hope at all he would know that there is no way she would model Lingerie he is so wrapped up in making money!!!
Wyatt and Quinn need to go!!!!!

I want to see Hope with Liam, but she is immature about issues. Let Wyatt have her and let her be jealous when another woman gets Liam and he is happy. But please let that be it because I am sick of them chasing each other after the other finds another lover.

I used to want Hope with Liam, but he is a wet towel who is so fickle, has no mind of his own, and treated Hope like trash for so long. She is acting like a hypocrite now but I want her to end up choosing Wyatt. Liam should either get with this girl or chase after Steffy in Paris.

I am so happy that liam and hope are together, i know things have happened in the past but when it comes down to it they are meant for each other.

I agree, Ashley Brewer was terrible as Kate Ramsay, in the Australian soap neighbors, & she’s no better as Ivy Forrester.. I think they could have found someone ALOT better at acting than her, & someone ALOT more beautiful from Australia’s selection of stunning young actresses, she’s certainly not the poster girl for beautiful, talented actresses here by any means.! She’s very plain by B&B standards, & makes the other girls look tiny, cause she’s very big boned & weighty.! But anyway, good luck to her I guess, very lucky break.!

I don’t know why, but I just really want Hope to be happy. I love her character – I love that she always tries to do the right thing. (And I love the gorgeous Kim Matula) But I know soaps don’t do “happy”, cos happy = boring. So I guess there is no point hoping she gets with the “right” person for her (whoever that may be… I think Wyatt) cos the point of a soap is drama. But still, I just want to see Hope happy, even if only for a while. Let her enjoy her marriage to Wyatt… Read more »

Irene Cara, Best-Known For Smash Hits ‘Fame’ and ‘Flashdance… What A Feeling’, Dead at 63

Oscar and Grammy winner, Irene Cara has passed away.  The singer/songwriter/actress, known for her memorable vocal performances to the theme of the hit movie, Fame, and singing the title track to another 80’s blockbuster, Flashdance, apparently died in her Florida home yesterday. The cause of death is not yet known.

According to her publicist, Judith Moore on Twitter, the rep shared: “This is the absolute worst part of being a publicist. I can’t believe I’ve had to write this, let alone release the news.  It is with profound sadness that on behalf of her family I announce the passing of Irene Cara. The Academy Award-winning actress, singer, songwriter and producer passed away in her Florida home.  Irene’s family has requested privacy as they process their grief. She was a beautifully gifted soul whose legacy will live forever through her music and films.”

A little known fact is that Irene’s first acting gig was on the daytime drama, Love of Life from 1970-1971 in the role of Daisy Allen.   She later appeared in TV roles on: What’s Happening, Kojak, Roots: The Next Generations, and in the film, Sparkle and many more.

Later, Cara first rose to prominence when she was cast in the 1980’s musical film Fame, where she sang the title track and starred in as Coco Hernandez.  Her vocal performance in Fame earned her two Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Performance Female in 1981.

Two years later, Cara not only picked up two Grammy Awards for her performance, but also an Oscar for  co-writing, “Flashdance… What a Feeling” from another 80’s pop culture smash, Flashdance.  At the Grammys in 1984, Irene won for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female, and Best Album of an Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or a Television Special.  She took home the Oscar for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards in 1983.

Cara’s rep added, that at the time of Irene’s death they were working on new projects: “Working on amazing projects that would have made her  and her fans incredibly happy. Her manager and I will finish them. She’d want that.”
