Photo: Gilles Toucas

He played Brad Carlton on The Young and the Restless from 1985-2009 before being written-off the show and eventually wound up on another Bell family series, The Bold and the Beautiful, as Dollar Bill Spencer.

Now, as part of the Summer Newman (Hunter King) and Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) feud that is going on from Genoa City to Los Angeles – in a crossover storyline on the CBS sister soaps – Diamont is headed back to his old stomping ground for a visit.

According to Soap Opera Digest, look for Diamont on Y&R the week of February 8th,

Diamont told SOD on his Y&R return, “I had not ever considered that I would be part of a crossover, just because my character was so well-defined at Y&R.”

So have you been enjoying the B&B and Y&R crossover storyline thus far? Do  you think it will be fun to see Don mix it up with some old pals on-screen from Y&R? Comment below.  But first, check out this video released by CBS Daytime of some other crossovers moments over the year between Y&R and B&B.

This is insulting to me. While I may not watch CBS soaps at the moment, due to the huge mishandling by executive producers and head writers, I cannot help but feel insulted by this decision. Wish I could have more excitement over this, however, am not feeling it in 2021. I need to see some real changes behind-the-scenes before I can be excited about crossovers like this. Don Diamont’s words, to me, read as his way of saying he is still surprised over the decision to kill-off Brad Carlton, and does not want to insult the audience’s intelligence by his… Read more »

The decision as rumor goes who knows that it was a decision between him or the character of Paul! Paul who is now gone Brad Carlton was a great character but writers after Bill Bell quit writing ruined the character as they have done with almost everyone on the canvas no I read about it once in a while to see if they have come around but no they have not ! I disagree with him I have never cared for the character of Bill Spencer and he has not had a decent story over at B&B how either soap… Read more »

Had it been my choice, I would’ve chosen to kill-off Paul Williams immediately.

I am so grateful for a viewer like yourself, Scott—-we have been of a mind so many times before and this time is no exception—I admire and respect your opinion. So, AGREED!! Besides, I am not a fan of Diamont, and most definitely was nover a fan of Brad Carlton—-something about both actor and character turned me off. ( I don’t watch B&B because he’s on it)—LOL–What can I say? We all have our little idiosyncrasies. Aside—is Camryn Grimes pregnant? Why else go through this drama of “conception” on the show? And why “Mariah” when there are blood-relatives in GC?… Read more »

We do have our idiosyncrasies. Trust me, I was not a Brad Carlton fan during his stints, however, in watching over the summer with the classic episodes, I kind of saw potential for the character, and how much he could be benefitted from in 2021.

As for Mariah being the surrogate, it probably has to do with the fact Mariah might *not* have the emotional attachment others may have to carrying a child to-term for Abby and Chance.

Don Diamont is the ONLY reason I watch Bold and the Beautiful.

Aren’t individual likes and dislikes great?? How monotonously droll life would be if we all thought the same thoughts? —albeit, we are slowly getting there.
Be safe!!

Big deal. There’s no story to this crossover. Nothing can ever compare to the Lauren/Sheila saga.

I’m still waiting for Lauren to find out Sheila’s alive and for her to give Eric a smack for not calling and telling her Sheila was back in L.A.

Kimberlin Brown/Sheila is a Republican and in this country now everything is about your politics your race your religion very sad so no Brad won’t be bringing her back it was a joke when he did years ago I as a viewer can’t watch a show enjoy anything without somebody telling me how to think feel etc so yes I decided screw it just stop and yes it’s sad but not the end of the world ! Yes KB could express more with raising her eyebrow and giving you that look then any dialogue

Absolutely, Joel—-no other parody can ever match the dramatic/satirical writing of the demented, passionate, at times morbidly humorous scenes of “the Lauren/Sheila saga.

90% of the viewers don’t even know who Brad was, a worthless cross over much like Eric’s visit to Niki and Victor’s wedding.

Hahahahaha, you sure about that? Educate yourself on the history, Matthew, because I would wager you are, in fact, wrong.

The current Y&R/B&B crossover lacks sparks. There has not been enough slow burn and rationale for a Summer/Sally feud> I think we needed more reason for this to mushroom as it has. I never liked that Y&R so misguidedly killed off Brad and Colleen. Anyway… I lime Don Diamont and his B&B Bill Spencer character. There should be so much more done with Bill but B&B is written so LCD. The show could have such fire with him and Katie, yet they write him to moon over Brooke or Steffy. Sigh.

Why? Bill is not going to magically turn into Brad Carlton whoever he was.

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
