Who ever says people who work in the soap opera biz are not Hollywood elite or movers and shakers, please take note! The Hollywood Reporter revealed that The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, and his wife, the Director of Special Projects for the soap, Colleen Bell, will be hosting two different fundraisers in support of President Barack Obama’s re-election.  The events are said to be a good gauge of how Hollywood support is stacking up for Obama.

First up, is a 35,000-per-person dinners for the president at the Holmby Hills estate of the soap power couple! Actor Will Ferrell and his wife Viveca Paulin are among the co-sponsors of the dinner.  Event organizers are also working on a line-up of musical acts to perform on the lawn of the Bells’ house for earlier in the day. Those tickets start at $250 per person.

According to THR: “For those who want to get a little more for their money, Obama Victory Fund’s Los Angeles representatives are selling “package” deals to all its first quarter events. Those willing to pony up $71,600 will receive two tickets to the Democrats’ five- event local 2012 speaker series, entry to a Jan. 31 reception for First Lady Michelle Obama with a photo opportunity and dinner with the president at the Bells’ estate on February 15.”

B&B is kicking butt right now! It is much improved, and it would be the best daytime soap if it were up to its full potential. Right now the best “soapy” moments in daytime are on B&B! It’s my “guilty pleasure” soap.

Soaps are fading away… we have to support our last remaining soaps. Only 4 soaps left. Soon it’ll be reruns, talk/game shows and all-day news broadcasts littering daytime TV. I’ll no longer watch network daytime TV when that happens.

I could afford the $250 ticket but they would have let me sleep there…couldn’t afford a ticket and hotel. 🙂
I knew there was a reason why I enjoy their soaps so much.

B&B’s Don Diamont Returns To Y&R

He played Brad Carlton on The Young and the Restless from 1985-2009 before being written-off the show and eventually wound up on another Bell family series, The Bold and the Beautiful, as Dollar Bill Spencer.

Now, as part of the Summer Newman (Hunter King) and Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) feud that is going on from Genoa City to Los Angeles – in a crossover storyline on the CBS sister soaps – Diamont is headed back to his old stomping ground for a visit.

According to Soap Opera Digest, look for Diamont on Y&R the week of February 8th,

Diamont told SOD on his Y&R return, “I had not ever considered that I would be part of a crossover, just because my character was so well-defined at Y&R.”

So have you been enjoying the B&B and Y&R crossover storyline thus far? Do  you think it will be fun to see Don mix it up with some old pals on-screen from Y&R? Comment below.  But first, check out this video released by CBS Daytime of some other crossovers moments over the year between Y&R and B&B.

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.
