B&B Gets a Major Fashion Makeover: Colleen Bell named Director Special Projects!

The Bold and the Beautiful the domestic and international soap opera hit, is getting another face-lift! And this time it’s in the wardrobe and representing what it is all about… the world of fashion.   So Brad Bell and his team have decided it’s time for a fashion makeover within the series with its mainstay characters and their waring fashion houses… Forrester and Jackie M.

Enter Colleen Bell, an style maven in every sense of the word, who has decided to help the show look fashion forward. The series has named her Director of Special Projects and her first order of business is to update the fashion and give the characters a new look.

Colleen told TV Guide “We really need to push the envelope. Brad and I would be watching the show together and I’d see what everyone was wearing and be really bothered by it. B&B should be a benchmark for fashion. People should be tuning in going, ‘I can’t wait to see what Hope wears today!’ We want them saying, ‘Did you see Steffy rocking those leather pants?’ I saw a need and knew I could fill it. We’re overhauling the entire wardrobe department and integrating the clothes, hair and makeup so that B&B is relevant and cool. Every character, including the men, is getting a distinct look.”

Some of things Colleen has already accomplished with the show: She recruited designer Monique Lhulier (Kristen Stewart, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lopez) to gown the runway models on the show’s new opening sequence.  She also talked leading lady Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) into that new, shorter ‘do that’s been wining raves from the fans. Bell handpicked stylist Danielle King (Ally McBeal) to be the soap’s new wardrobe designer and they joined forces for the July 5-6 wedding of Ridge and Taylor.”

So soapers,  which characters on B&B wearing would you like to see wearing an outfit from what designers? Let us know.

What’s major about the fact that Brad Bell hired his wife for the job? Just asking!

Why don’t they hire a new writer?Dumbest soap biggest waste of talent hire great actors and still show old man Ridge!!!


I agree that the show needs better writing than fashion advice. However, I think it is VERY funny that the quotes mention Steffy, Hope and Brooke while there is NO mention of Stephanie. For years, Stephanie has been dressed extremely inappropriately to be the matriarch on a show that is suppose to be concerned about fashion, style, and glamor. If Colleen Bell doesn’t immediately put Stephanie in something other than those horrible monotone pant suits and put a stylish wig over that butch gray hair, she clearly is not qualified for the job. Stephanie’s appearance is so bad that it… Read more »




I think Stephanie is ill. But they really need to concentrate on being more multicultural. Why are the African Americans on Bells Soaps so ugly. Daisy could have been a prettier girl. Everyone on there is beautiful except her. Look at the Ugly Malcom on Y&R.

I want Liam to remember seeing Steffy in bed with his brother. Maybe then he can move on with Ivy. I also want Ridge to shave and groom himself. As well as finally be put in his place. Who better to do that than Brooke. She needs to remember his judgemental history with her. And back the man whos always had her back “Eric”. Let her son grow up and stand or fall on his own. Give Eric the shares Bill gives her. And let Eric find out (and he will) what Quinn is about. She always shows her colors,… Read more »


OLTL Alum Tuc Watkins Opens Up On His Sobriety and the Importance of Camaraderie

He made his mark to soap opera fans as David Vickers on One Life to Live (1994-1996, 2001-2013) and as Bob on Desperate Housewives (2007-2012), since then Tuc Watkins has been featured and starred in numerous television, motion pictures and stage roles.

Most recently, Watkins starred opposite Neil Patrick Harris in the Netflix streaming series Uncoupled, the film and stage adaptation of Boys in the Band, and recently on stage in the AIDS-based drama, The Inheritance.

Tuc, who came out on The Marie Osmond Show back in 2013, is the father of twins via surrogacy, and is currently in a relationship with film, TV and stage actor, Andrew Rannells.  Earlier in his career, many warned Watkins that it could be detrimental to him, if he played gay roles.  However, in the years that have followed, Tuc has proved them wrong taking on some of the most prominent LGBTQ roles out there and earning critical praise for his performances.

A few months ago, in March, Tuc took to his Instagram account to share a before and after photo of him 4 years before he got sober, and 4 years after he got sober with a heartfelt and inspiring message.

Watkins expressed: “If your drinking is making you uncomfortable, tell a sober person. Any sober person. That’s what I did. I don’t remember what I said to him that day. And I don’t remember what he said to me. But I remember the way he made me feel. He made me feel like I was going to be okay. It was the last day I drank. October 28, 2018. I got sober because alcohol was ruining my life. I stay sober because my life got better. #sobriety #recovery”

Kit shared: “I’ve had the pleasure of working with Tuc three times now. On the third season of EastSiders, my new series Unconventional, and the indie film Retake. Tuc is a star in the literal sense of the word, shining light on and lifting up the people around him, and he is as talented and funny as he is dashing and kind.  I was a fan of his before I became a friend, and I have seen firsthand how committed he is to supporting other queer artists and making art that matters.”

As pride month approaches in just a weeks time, Watkins shared on Queerty’s coverage on his Instagram: “Thank you @Queerty for elevating the LGBTQ+ community. 🏳️‍🌈 For highlighting the differences in our backgrounds, identities, and experiences, all through the lens of camaraderie.”

Kelly Clarkson Opens Up on Moving Her Talk Show to New York City: “It’s Either I’m Not Going to be Able to Continue the Show or I Gotta Go East Coast”

Kelly Clarkson told producers of her daytime talk show back in January that she has to head to the east coast starting in the fall, or there wouldn’t be any show to come back to.

In an interview promoting her upcoming new album Chemistry, Clarkson spoke to Nancy O’Dell for the TalkShopLive series.

During the conversation she shared a few more details on what led to this move.  Kelly shared how she spoke to the execs at her show and at NBC, relating, ‘Guys, I need you to know what’s happening. It’s either I’m not going to be able to continue the show or I gotta go East Coast.”

Elaborating further, the Grammy Award-winning singer shared: “Covid, pointed out (that) being isolated and so far from your family, that’s not good for anyone.  My family is East Coast, they’re North Carolina based. So, it was one of those things where I just had to … and also there was a lot of personal things going on, too.”  Those personal things include her recent divorce from Brandon Blackstock back in the summer of 2022, raising her kids and more.

Kelly went on to say that the move to the Big Apple was all her idea, citing, “It as 100 percent my idea and it was really cool that NBC backed me because I was like, ‘Y’all, I love doing this show. I really do. I didn’t even know I would but I gotta make a change for me and my family. Any chance we could do this? I know we can’t do this from my ranch so any chance we could do it in New York … it’s at least closer to my family … that was really the main reason.”

During the chat with O’Dell, Clarkson admitted she is not really into pursuing motion picture and TV roles in Los Angeles anyway, but she does enjoy the stage and when in New York she is closer to the theatre. The Daytime Emmy Award winner also noted that she is working on various other projects.  Might we see Kelly on Broadway in 2024 or 2025? Stay tuned.

Clarkson’s show recently came under fire earlier this month when former and current employees claimed that it fosters a toxic work environment, something Kelly pledges she will make sure in the future that people that work for her show won’t ever feel that way again.

The talk show host addressed the allegations a few weeks ago, and noted changes are coming behind the scenes.  Kelly expressed, “Part of that build will include leadership training for all of the senior staff, including myself. There is always room to grow and ensure we are all being/becoming the best versions of ourselves in any business, especially when it comes to leadership. To ensure that any notion of toxicity is eradicated.”

So, what do you think about Kelly’s move to New York to be closer to her family, Broadway and more? Will the show have a different feel to it next season? Comment below.
