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.

IF FINN PICKS SHEILA, I THINK YOU’LL BE SURPRISED HOW MANY FANS YOU HAVE THAT WILL STOP WATCHING.

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

I am not happy that Shelia Carter is back on the scene. When she is on there someone always getting hurt, or kicked off the show. This thing with Quinn and Eric, it’s the craziest thing I ever heard of. Who gives their spouse permission to sleep with someone else. Please get it together! These soaps are about to be boring. If you miss one day you don’t have to worry because you having missed a thing.

Get rid of her or make her nice, she’s a good actress but if she is going to be the same old wicked witch you’ve lost a veiwer. Bring Donna and Eric back together too

B&B needs to let BRAD BELL go. His scripts suck. The show is running on a prayer. Needs a new and better writer to bring the show to life again. Show has been soooo boring same people same scripts day after day! Give us a break for Pete’s sake.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Now SiriusXM has made my dream a reality with a podcast featuring friends, both old and new, discussing a variety of topics we all face in life, while getting deep with some experts’ views and advice along the way. Not another podcast, this is off camera!”
