B&B’s Brooke and Bill, Katie and Carter: Are You Down For These Potential Pairings?

Photos: CBS

On CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful, it looks as those (at least for the short-term, possibly longer) there will be some re-pairings and some new romances ahead for four key characters.

This comes on the heels of Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) walking away from Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and having had sex with his ex-wife, Taylor (Krista Allen).  While Ridge believes Brooke made the call to CPS (Child Protective Services) against his son, Thomas (Matthew Atkinson), in actuality, it was revealed to be Thomas, himself, who did the deed using a voice-changing app.  So, with misunderstandings and misinformation abound, it all leads to romantic rebounds and more.  The question is, are B&B fans down for the pairings?

First, there is Brooke and Bill (Don Diamont).  As soon as Brooke landed back in LA from Aspen, devastated over Ridge walking out on her, who should show up at her door … Bill! Previously, this couple known as “Brill” has had a stormy past, but Bill has always deeply loved Brooke.  So much so, that just before he ran over to Brooke’s, he was meeting up with her sister, Katie (Heather Tom).  While having lunch, Katie tells Bill they can’t get back together, because if Brooke were available, she would always be second fiddle.  And just like that, it would seem that Brooke may now be available, thanks to Ridge dumping her. Note: Bill was also having Brooke followed in Aspen by Othello.

Meanwhile, Katie has a conversation with Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor), while at Forrester Creations.  Carter says they are friends and she can openly talk to him. She tells him what happened with Bill.  In addition, we will learn this week just what has happened to Quinn, when her bestie Shauna (Denise Richards) arrives back in LA.  As B&B viewers know, Rena Sofer (ex-Quinn) has left the series, which could free up Carter in the love department. Katie and Carter have flirted with romance with each other before. From the looks of it, both will try to move on from their past loves in the weeks ahead.

So, are you in favor of a Brooke and Bill redux, and seeing Carter and Katie in relationship? If not, who would you rather see them on the B&B canvas with? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Yes Bill & Brooke belong together

Brooke and Bill belong together

Yes! The Stalian and the old grey Mare.

YES!!! Bill and Brook!!

Anybody but Brooke and Ridge. Let them move on for good!

Yes Brooke and Bill belong together

It’s time for Bill & Brooke to have a good long run. They are perfect for each other

Yes! Bring Brooke and Bill back together.

Bill made a big mistake, nearly killing his son, but instead of fighting him Brooke walked out -straight to Ridge and she never looked back. If he’s stupid enough to go back to her, he deserves what is coming to him: Brooke leaving again for Ridge.

Refresh my memory here, please.when did Bill almost kill WHICH SON, Liam, Wyatt or Will and when did that happen?

Between Brooke, Ridge, Taylor, Katie, Bill, Carter…I really don’t care about who goes with who. Together today , change tomorrow…it’s a writer’s gimmick for drama. But I wouldn’t mind seeing Bill with Dr. li ( hope I got her name right). She does bring out the best in him. I do want to see Thomas’s voice change app get discovered ASAP. Would be poetic justice if Douglas with the innocence of a child reveals it…” Guess what I showed dad how to do?”

The last thing we need is another Brooke and Bill redux… What happened to a potential Bill and Li pairing? And isn’t Jack single now that he and Li broke up? Why can’t the writers pair Brooke with him, and actually utilize the talents of Ted King?

As for Carter and Katie, at least it’s a new pairing that hasn’t been done to death already. But what a disappointment for “Quarter” fans to have Carter and Quinn’s story end so abruptly and unceremoniously. Rena Sofer’s exit really threw a wrench into what could have been a great revenge story where Quinn reverts back to her older self and tries to sabotage Eric and Donna’s relationship to get back at them.

It would have put Carter at the forefront of story and allowed Lawrence St. Victory to show he’s a leading man, given Rena Sofer a showcase to display her myriad talents, and given viewers a much needed break from the unbearable rehash of the Brooke/Ridge/Taylor fiasco. There’s just no drama in how quickly and neatly this story ended, especially with the months of build-up. What a letdown. Then again, that’s all B&B has become lately.

I love Brooke & Bill together.They always had great chemistry. It was nice to see them travel the world on his yacht & jet. He always treated her much better than Ridge. It would be good to leave him with Taylor & be miserable while Brooke enjoys life. Stop this stupid triangle but let ridge really regret losing Brooke. And Brill romance is the best!

General Hospital’s Rena Sofer Remarries Sanford Bookstaver

Congratulations are in order for Rena Sofer (Lois Cerullo, General Hospital) and her longtime love, TV director and producer, Sanford Bookstaver. The couple re-tied the knot over this past weekend in a wedding ceremony.

In a post on her Instagram, Sofer shared the details, expressing, “This weekend on what would have been our 21st wedding anniversary I got to Re-Marry my best friend Sanford Booksaver once again!”

The GH star and Daytime Emmy-winner added,”The journey we are about to begin is the most exciting adventure, in a new state and town, but most thrilling is that we get to do it together as husband and wife!”

Alluding to their time apart, Rena noted, “The three years we spent apart were humbling and heartbreaking but vital to us finding each other again. The love I have for you now is the foundation of my life. I can’t imagine another moment NOT walking through life with you hand in hand and our hearts entwined. You are the love of my life, and it’s not ‘oops we did it again, but I’m so grateful we did it again!❤️❤️❤️”

Previously, Sofer was married to GH and Days star, Wally Kurth (Ned and Justin, respectively) from 1995-1997, and the two share a daughter together, Rosabel Rosalind Kurth. Rena and Sanford were previously married from 2005 to 2017 and share a daughter together, Avalon Leone.

REPORT: Matthew Atkinson Back to The Bold and the Beautiful

When we last saw The Bold and the Beautiful’s Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson), he headed out of Los Angeles with his son, Douglas (Henry Joseph Samiri) and headed to Paris. The decision to leave was prompted by Hope (Annika Noelle) turning down his marriage proposal once again, and by prodding from his sister, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).

Many Thope fans have wanted to see Hope and Thomas reunite and figure out where to take their relationship next, but he has been nowhere insight, and so has his portrayer, Matthew Atkinson.

However, in a new report from Soap Hub, their sources indicate that Atkinson will be back on screen next month by mid-June. In a tease, Atkinson posted a photo on his Instagram story (which has since disappeared, since IG story posts only stay up for 24 hours), where he was pointing at a TV screen behind him that showed Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor) and Eric (John McCook) in a scene. No telling the true meaning of that snap, but it could be he is back at the show.

As Hope and Finn (Tanner Novlan) are getting closer, the timing could just work out in the most dramatic way if Thomas were to return. Since Hope and Finn are bonding over their parents, Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) and Deacon’s (Sean Kanan), upcoming nuptials, will the doctor and the designer hit the sheets and Thomas walks in on it?

Now let us know, when Thomas returns do you want to see him reconcile things with Hope, or do you want him back to the obsessed Thomas of the past who hatched plots to get what he wanted? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Maurice Benard Defends Sonny Going Postal, “It Could Definitely Happen”

Last Friday’s May 17th cliffhanger of General Hospital saw Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) beating up Dex (Evan Hofer) and threatening to shoot and kill both Dex and Jason (Steve Burton), who is restraining him outside the ballroom at the wedding reception of Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase (Josh Swickard).

For months, Sonny has been taking less than his prescribed dosage of medication to control his bipolar disorder.  The mobster has no idea that he has been duped by Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart), who is the one that set this dangerous situation in motion, in an effort to eliminate Sonny and eventually Jason from interfering in Pikeman taking over the territory.

One fan questioned the validity of Sonny’s reaction to Dex and Jason after the pei, when he took to X and expressed, “People off their medications don’t necessarily go around hitting people and being out of control. This was the WRONG message to send. I don’t expect anything from Frank Valentini and General Hospital anymore, but you could’ve (and should’ve) stopped it cold.”

Maurice Benard replied back to that comment and defended the actions of Sonny given the circumstances. The three-time Daytime Emmy-winner shared, “This is true but when you have a character like Sonny who’s volatile and is drinking and is manic and his thoughts are taken him over it could definitely happen like I said, ‘bipolar ain’t pretty.”‘

GH has portrayed Sonny’s battle with mental illness and the importance of keeping on your meds, plus the issues surrounding it for years. However, some fans have not been pleased by this latest plot point.


The pick-up of the story begins tomorrow on Monday, May 20th where teasers for the episode share: Sonny is horrified. Blaze consoles Kristina (who walked in on her dad threatening Jason and Dex) and Jason summons Carly.

So, what did you think of the plot point of Sonny threatening to kill Dex and Jason, after beating up Dex, given his growing paranoia? Comment below.
