To be honest, it doesn’t really excite me. I’ll wait and see.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don’t put Ridge and Brooke together!! That ship has sailed and they have NO chemistry.
Huge mistake to suddenly stop the best love story they had with Ridge and Caroline.

I completely agree. I think Ronn Moss and Katherine Kelly Lang had a wonderful chemistry that nobody can replace. I can’t see that happening now. Like you said that ship has sailed. I can see them remaining friends for the sake of their son, but I don’t see any kind of connection when they have their scenes together. As strange as this may sound, I never cared for him as Ridge, but I loved the whole story involving Caroline, and I was so upset when they broke up. I cried during the episode of the break up. Just don’t let it mean a Brooke and Ridge come back

Ronn and Katherine are the ONLY Ridge and Brooke. No offense to Thorsten Kaye and his new Ridge.

I hope so. This would finaly be a good storyline but indont trust B&B to tell it. Do we even see Mya anymore?

If that’s the case, he’ll last about six weeks on the show.

Definitely would have been believable if Moss was still in the role. His scarves were just a little too precious.

We rarely see Maya now, such a shame, so much more story to tell with a trans character, instead we get constant repetitive Liam Spencer love triangles.

Ronn Moss was Ridge Forrester he was that character for 25 years . Thorsten Kaye is not Ridge Brad Bell was having a childish moment should have left the character off the canvas maybe worked the character of Thorne but this kid being brought on won’t help the ratings who will be in his group to offset him with? No offense but KKL has zero chemistry with TK he is not Ridge fold the tent admit you were wrong BB and send Ridge away

The kid hates the stupid sword ring. Definitely a Forestier, already trying to control everyone like his step-sister. (She should have gotten Quinn’s ring… WOW!!!)

Not liking this kid RJ but i understand wanting to keep parents together. However, like most fans, RM and KKL will be the only Ridge and Brooketo me. BRidge is no more. Make Bill and Brooke a power couple

Gloria Boyd

This boy might be a decent actor , however, I think the casting is wrong, there is no physical resemblance, he is too short, and seems babyish. I have noticed this type of casting on other tv shows like blue blood’s Nicki , the granddaughter.

yeah Bill and Brooke are hot together and a great couple. I agree no chemistry for Boorke and the new Ridge. He is better with caroline in my opinion. No Chemistry is right! It is really sad writing that the only reason that brought RJ on is to try and reconnect his parents that have not been together in a long time. Also, last time Ridge or Brooke even saw RJ, he was a baby. He would not even remember then together.

Soaps Lift Boycott Threat Of Daytime Emmys

In a key move to allow those performers in front of the camera and behind the scenes crew and creatives to be acknowledged for their accomplishments this calendar year, the four daytime dramas collectively have decided to lift their threatened boycott and participate in the upcoming 46th annual Daytime Emmy competition.

This comes after the four network soaps (Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless) banded together after being unsatisfied with snafu’s coming out of the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards earlier this year in April, and a list of grievances and concerns they asked to be addressed by the organization that administers the Emmy contest.

Then, following an internal investigation by NATAS by the law firm of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth of Washington, DC, the results which were released on November 8th, and being in receipt of their findings, the soaps decided to move forward while still having concerns they want addressed.

In a statement from the group, a spokesperson related to Deadline, who broke the story late Friday: “As a group, we are not in agreement with all of the conclusions that NATAS reached.  However, in the spirit of working with NATAS and the TV Academy on improving the integrity of the Daytime Emmys, we have lifted our boycott. We look forward to meeting with NATAS to discuss their findings and our concerns in greater detail.”

On Saturday, someone close to the situation said to Michael Fairman TV: “Our participation doesn’t mean we accept their proposal moving forward, we still have major issues that we will be discussing with the Chair and President (of NATAS), but as a collective whole, we don’t want to penalize our actors for NATAS’ mis-management.”

The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy submissions began earlier this week on November 12th, with the Daytime Emmys slated to be handed out in early May of 2019.

So, are you glad that the network soaps have lifted their threatened boycott so that your favorite performers, whose performances you have loved over the last 11 months can be acknowledged for their talents and hard work? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
