Today is the release date in book stores nationwide for The Bold and The Beautiful’s Don Diamont’s (Bill Spencer) autobiography, entitled, My Seven Sons and How We Raised Each Other.  The book, of course, details Diamont raising his amazing seven boys from childhood to adulthood.

According to the publisher, “Don Diamont’s My Seven Sons and How We Raised Each Other is a fatherhood book for today’s modern, blended family; a dude book that doesn’t shy away from an emotional body slam; and, a giftable Dad book that also functions as a love song to a magnificent Mom.  With humor and compassion, Don takes the readers on a rollercoaster ride from the depths and sorrow of the passing of his own father and brother, to the heights of Hollywood and global glam, to becoming a father himself and the unlikely assemblage of his blended brood. Only two of his seven sons are his biological children.  Looking back on the men who raised, coached, and mentored him, Diamont speaks candidly about the powerful lessons he’s learned. Looking forward, as his seven boys become men.”

You can catch Don at several book signings beginning today, in New York, New Jersey, and Los Angeles.  Details below:

  • Tuesday, 5/29/2018 at Barnes and Noble at 7pm at 91 Old Country Road, Carle Place, NY
  • Thursday, 5/31/2018 at Books and Greetings at 7pm 271 Livingston St. Northvale, NJ

My admiration for Mr. Diamont has now skyrocketed!

But I must ask the question: In the “Hot Pic,” in which Diamont poses with his wife and sons, I am not the most expert mathematician, but I count 6 sons. I suspect that knowing how many children you have (and their whereabouts) is a major component of being a good father! 🙂

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
