Fans were shocked when The Bold and the Beautiful suddenly killed-off unstable Aly Forrester, but one thing was for sure, her portrayer Ashlyn Pearce, went out with a bang with many scenes that she could easily use to garner a Daytime Emmy nomination next year.

Now Pearce is talking to Soap Opera Digest in her first exit interview that will be on-sale tomorrow in the latest edition of the publication.

As a preview she shared with SOD that she received a call from Brad Bell (executive producer and head writer, B&B) on her imminent demise: “My first thought was, ‘Oh, no. This is the death of my character and I’m really sad about that.’”

Ashlyn went on to thank the fans for their outpouring of support when they learned of her on-screen departure: “Aly resonated with a lot of viewers, but the magnitude of people who were sad about losing this character … it touched me.  That’s when it hit me that, ‘Wow, this is really over.’”

Do you wish B&B hadn’t killed-off Aly?  Did you enjoy the performances of Ashlyn Pearce?  Comment below!

Her story was the only one I was really enjoying. Such a dumb move to write off Aly just to prop up Steffy. Not too surprising though, Bell’s made many dumb moves over the years.

They should have killed off steffy instead!

Final scenes well played by Ashlyn, but wish character would’ve been redeemed. Aly deserved a happy ending.

I loved her as Aly, she grew on me. Terrific actress. Cast her as the new Daisy Carter on The Young and the Restless. Rumors online say Sheila Carter played by Kimberlin Brown will be back for 3 months this fall, on The Young and The Restless. I hope this is true.

Not to mention didn’t Daisy have Daniel’s child?

I LOATHED Daisy.

That being said, I might watch this actress as Daisy. That would be good casting.

An alternative: I recast of Summer Newman. The actress currently playing her is beyond bland. I might be interesting to watch an unhinged Summer. This actress certainly could fill the bill.

I liked the Aly character; she played it so naturally and had a sense of “realism” in her acting.I believe Ashlyn, will go far in TV and in film.☺

I agree. I only saw her on the show for a day or so, but my first thought was how great it was to see someone on daytime that good. I am a GH viewer, so it was an accident I saw her at all as I was flipping channels. I didn’t follow the show except to watch her on screen for a couple of days. She reminded me of why I started watching As The World Turns many years ago when Julianne Moore was working with the guy who played Doug Cummings. She will be a star.

I am still in shock they killed another Forrester. Did they learn nothing from the senseless killing of Pheobe Forrester?? Then they kill Thorne’s ONLY child?? Taylor killed his wife, now her daughter kills his!!! I wish Aly couldve gotten a glamourpuss makeover bc the actress is gorgeous and her wholle storyline couldve been better!! She should’ve come on as a savvy shoe designer who had an axe to grind at Forrester bc of the way Thorrne has been treated, then been a direct rival of Steffy’s and a friend to Hope!!! I hope Thorne has some illegitimate kids out there!!!

Her acting was great, but I was not a fan of the character nor the actress at all. Was glad they got rid of her, maybe it was the material they gave her, but every time it was the same old lines about hope for the future and what the Foster company stood for and all that over and over.

Just glad they killed it all.

She is a great little actress and I respect the fact that she is going to acting school to improve upon her craft. That being said, I would LOVE it if Y&R desorased Abby and replaced Melissa Ordway with Ashyln Pearce. I know she could make Abby recognizable and conscionable the way Emme Rylan portrayed her.

I liked the way that they killed her off. They performed the worst CPR on her and I do mean THE WORST CPR. So I wouldn’t be surprise that the police pronounced her dead, when in reality she was just unconscious.

If it turns out she’s really alive and being held by Eric or even Sheila in a secluded place, I’d burst out laughing. I would probably die of laughter if it was a fake death.

Here’s hoping for November sweeps.

They just never learn to stop killing legacy characters and promoting their pets

I really like Ali, she’s smart, bright and shows lots of maturity for her age. I know she has issues that she needs help with, but to kill her off is just sad.. I really would like to see her shoe line take off; hopefully she is not dead, but unconscious. Let Ali live.. what will Oliver do without her!!

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talk Show Pilot In The Works

This fall, new talkers from Tamron Hall and Kelly Clarkson will be part of the daytime television landscape, and now comes word that Drew Barrymore may enter the space with a new talk show for her that is in development with the pilot being shot this coming week.

According to Variety, details of the proposed one-hour show are not all clear, but Drew is said to be one of the executive producers of the pilot episode and yet there is no showrunner attached to the project at this time.  Barrymore’s company, Flower Films is likely attached as well.

Back in 2016, Barrymore had a deal in place with Warner Brothers Telepictures for a talk show, but that never came to pass, in part to a lukewarm response from TV station groups at that time.

However now the new regime at CBS’ syndication arm is said to have ‘high hopes’ for the show and they feel that Drew will appeal and do well in the daytime arena.

Barrymore recently appeared in her third season of  Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet in its 30 episode season. Through her Flower Films she was been an executive producer on unscripted series including TLC’s Rattled and VH1’s Tough Love.

So, would you be interested. or intrigued to see what kind of show Drew Barrymore has to offer in daytime? Think she would be a good host? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
