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”

So do you wish you were at the events yesterday?  Are you glad to see soap opera movers and shakers participating in such an important time in our country? Let us know!

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.

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  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 as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales.
