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.

General Hospital

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.

Michael B. Jordan Recalls His Acting Start as All My Children’s Reggie in SNL Opening Monologue

Last night, Michael B. Jordan hosted Saturday Night Live.  The Creed star, who is the director of the upcoming Creed III due out in March, took to the stage to deliver his opening monologue, and right off the top he mentioned his beginnings as All My Children’s Reggie.

Jordan portrayed Reggie from 2003-2006 on the ABC soap opera (his character was eventually adopted by Jack Montgomery).

When Michael hit the stage, he shared: “Yesterday, I had a crazy full-circle moment. We pre-shot some videos for the show and when I got to the studio I realized it was the exact same place where I shot one of my first acting roles on the soap opera All My Children.

He then tossed to a clip of his 16-year-old self in which Reggie says, “sometimes the animal in me gets kind of crazy” and then howls life a wolf at the end of the scene. Back to the SNL stage, Jordan said mockingly, “I’m pretty sure I hit puberty mid-howl.”

Jordan ended his monologue by looping it back to his early acting days on AMC, sharing: “I just want to say, I’m so grateful to be standing on this stage. Sometimes, I can take myself a little too seriously but tonight, I’m going to have fun, I’m just going to go for it. And maybe, just maybe let the inner animal get a little crazy.”

Watch Michael’s opening monologue below.  Then let us know, what did you think of the the AMC Reggie clip reference? Do you recall Michael’s days on the ABC daytime drama series? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
