It was day and evening that soap opera power couple Brad and Colleen Bell, the head honcho of The Bold and the Beautiful and his wife, the Director of Special Projects, hosted Hollywood elite and very special guests who paid up to $ 35,800 for a dinner and the opportunity to see and meet President Barack Obama and First Lady, Michelle Obama.

The fundraisers were held yesterday the the Bell’s beautiful Holmby Hills, California Estate, which often is used as the fictional home of Brooke Logan on the CBS soap!   Before President Obama spoke to the crowd, the just crowned five-time Grammy winners, The Foo Fighters, performed on the grounds for $ 250.00 a piece ticket  with a 4-song set including“Learn to Fly,” “Hero,” “Walk,” and “Everlong”.  What followed were short speeches by actors Rashida Jones and Jack Black.  Next, Colleen Bell introduced Obama saying, “He reminds us that change doesn’t come easy or fast.”  Obama then walked on stage to applause.

According to the HuffingtonPost.com report “Obama spoke in front of a crowd of 1,000 Angelenos on the lawn of soap opera producer Bradley Bell and his wife Colleen, with familiar faces in the VIP section included actors Mila Kunis, Don Cheadle and Paul Reiser and celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck.  After the concert and speeches were over, Obama was led inside the Bell home for a $35,800/plate fundraising dinner. Guests at this more intimate event included actors George Clooney and Jim Belushi.

Days of our Lives star, Sarah Brown (Madison) who appeared a few years ago on B&B posted on her Facebook page, “Had a great night at the Obama fundraiser tonight. It was an inspiring evening! I got to see some of my friends from B&B and had the opportunity to meet two of my favorite artists Herbie Hancock and Don Cheadle! The Foo Fighters, Jack Black, and Colleen Bell opened for the President. Got some great pictures. XO”

I love B&B! Glad to the upswing in the ratings in recent months. B&B is my “guilty pleasure” soap. Kudos to the Bells.

I’d rather the entertainment industry remain publicly neutral on political matters.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
