B&B’s EP and Head Writer, Brad Bell, On Bringing Back Sheila Carter

Photo: Gilles Toucas/Bell-Phillip TV Prods

Whenever Kimberlin Brown (Sheila Carter) is on The Bold and the Beautiful it certainly makes for intense drama and soapy antics and fun.  The recent return of Ms. Carter has already caused a major rift in newlyweds: Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and John “Finn” Finnegan’s (Tanner Novlan) marriage.

As viewers have witnessed, Sheila was revealed to be Finn’s biological mother as she stepped out of the shadows to meet her son for the first time (following his nuptials to Steffy!) since she gave him up for ‘adoption’ years ago.  But as we have further learned, Jack (Ted King) is also Finn’s biological father, not his adoptive dad, and that secret is still looming giving Sheila blackmail leverage against him to help her get closer to her grandson, Hayes, and to Finn.

However, Steffy is not having any of it, and has already slapped Sheila on two occasions and put her foot down, bringing up all the horrors Sheila perpetrated on her family including shooting her mother, Taylor and her grandmother, Stephanie.

Now, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, opened up on his decision to resurrect the feud of Sheila vs the Forresters, but namely this time with Stephanie’s namesake, Steffy, in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now.

Bell shared: “Yes, history has a way of repeating itself. Having Sheila be Finn’s biological mother brings her back to the show in a very central and core position, as for Steffy, who everything was going so beautifully for with her and Dr. Finn, when it seems to be too good to be true in soap operas, generally, it is.”

Brad also added his delight in having Kimberlin Brown vs Jacqueline MacInnes Wood battling it out in key scenes:  “It’s good to have Kimberlin back. She always brings a little punch and pizzazz, and to pit her against Jacqui in this whole new way is going to bring some great story in their direction.”

So, are you glad Brad brought back Sheila to the canvas of B&B? Share your thoughts in the comment section.  But first check out this week’s promo for the show below.

It’s not the ‘bringing on Kimberlin Brown’ that worries me. Of course she’s a fantastic actress. It’s how they plan to write her out and the destruction she’ll leave in her wake that bothers me.

The years when Sheila was on the show were always the most entertaining. I only wish she could be redeemed so that we can enjoy her for years to come.

Joel,
There is no redemption for Sheila. First of all no one would believe it, and we would always be waiting for the other shoe to drop and whom would she be dropping it on? Do you think those two slaps Steffy gave her will be forgotten or forgiven? I’d love a story line where another villainous as evil went after her, giving her a taste of her own venum.

Bill Bell has no idea how to write story. He is fixated on incestuous triangles and non-sensual plotting.

I am so glad Sheila is back. I was tired of the lovey dove scenes.

I like a little drama. It keeps me on the edge of my seat.

As a mother, it is hard for me to deny Sheila the right to see her grandson.

There were two men in the room. What could she had done to baby Hayes?

Can’t wait to see the next story line.

Yes I’m glad kimberlin is back. The show was getting to o repetitive and too mushy and whinny. Kimberlin is a very talented actress gotta love even if it’s wrong in what she might be doing. This could also play into mental health issues, remission and letting that bad side surface. There is obviously a mix of MH issues with her character and appears genuine in trying to over come her wrongs and too many slaps could set her back again. Can’t help but feel sorry for her. We also have to find out how her and Jack met. If… Read more »

Brad Bell doesn’t know what he’s doing, he isn’t anything like his mom and dad and I don’t know why it understand they keep rehashing old characters and storylines and the same ole, same ole crap but The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless have really scraped the bottom of the barrel the last several months bringing Sally onto The Young and the Restless where she’s causing more chaos a d grief than she ever did on The Bold and the Beautiful and bringing Ashland and Tara on The Young and the Restless and causing chaos… Read more »

Sheila’s one driving obsession was that she lost a child and fixated on Scott because she could not have children!!

So, when did she have these FIVE children when she was rarely off screen!???

She supposedly had some Mary with James Warwick, Daisy and Ryder with Terrible Tom, she supposedly had a child with 80 year old Massimo Marone, and now has this kid!!!

5 kids for a woman who is always fixated on Scott who is not even her kid!

And can we get the story on Y and R on what happened to Sheila??

Anytime this show does anything that is not HOPE/LIAM driven, I am watching. Every time you turn around, its Hope this, Liam that ad nauseum. I welcome any change of story, even though it’s short lived. By Christmas, we will be back to Hope this….Liam that. Bill Bell is distracting us right now with Sheila.

Brad, it’s great you brought Kimberlin Brown back as Sheila Carter. It makes things more complicated and very interesting. And it keeps the ratings going higher and it makes the show more and more inviting for people to watch. She is a fan favorite ❤ Shaun from California

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.

Other leading contenders through the night will include the series: The Mandalorian, WandaVision, The Handmaid’s Tale, Saturday Night Live, Lovecraft CountryThe Queen’s Gambit and Mare of Easttown.

Cedric the Entertainer will host the three-hour special on CBS beginning at 8 pm EST emanating from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.  Pandemic and all there will be a return to an opening number.

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.

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.

Courtesy/ABC

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.
