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.

Who will take home the gold at Sunday night’s 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards?  Well, from the looks of it .two heavy favorites going into it are Ted Lasso in the comedy categories, and The Crown in the dramatic categories, but as we have seen on previous Emmys there may be upsets afoot.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

One Life to Live alum Renée  Elise Goldsberry (Ex-Evangeline) will be competing in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in Hamilton.  Another OLTL alum, Jonathan Groff (Ex-Henry), is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for his role in Hamilton, as well.

In the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, Sterling K. Brown tries to win another Emmy for his role as Randall Pearson on This Is Us.   To view all the nominees, head on over to the TV Academy’s website.

This past June, CBS also aired the 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in a pre-packaged show for broadcast due to Covid-19 restrictions.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
