B&B's Heather Tom and Katherine Kelly Lang Deliver Compelling Performances As Katie Gives Brooke The Kiss-Off!

Sisters no more? That’s how things ended between Logan siblings, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Katie (Heather Tom) on Friday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful.  In key and dramatic scenes, both Heather Tom and Katherine Kelly Lang brought their A-game, as they do time and time again.

Katie, who has tried to stuff down her insecurities with booze to turn off the noise in her head that her sister Brooke is once again going to nab her husband Bill (Don Diamont) is having a difficult time.  And up to this point was told by her sister that nothing was going on between her and Bill.

However when questioned this time, Brooke admits the truth.  Katie, who now realizes she is not delusional, but justified in her thinking. She lashes out at Brooke and throws everything from her history but the kitchen sink at her!  She brings up how their father abandoned them, which caused Brooke’s “daddy issues”, and how she hoped from man to man, and yup! Katie called Brooke, “The slut from the valley”.

Next, Katie unloads on Brooke for helping herself to her husband, not once, but twice!  In an effort to calm Katie down, Brooke tells her sister that she and Bill did not sleep together.  Katie doesn’t care.  then with tears streaming down her face Brooke admits she failed, it’s all her fault as she obviously couldn’t resist Bill.   And in a lightning-rod moment for Katie she tells Brooke she now understands why both mothers of Bill’s other children (Wyatt and Liam), kept him away from them while growing up.  She plans to do the same thing with Will.  Brooke says she can’t do that to Bill.

In the best moment of the episode, Katie hugs her sister, almost like a mafia don disowning someone from their family, who they will kill.  She kisses Brooke and tells her how she will remember the best things about her, but also lets her know how she sucks the air out of the room and all eyes are always on her, and nobody else, and that she always gets what she wants.   Katie tells Brooke this is goodbye, and walks out on her sister.   Brooke becomes hysterical realizing that through her selfishness, and her love for Bill, it has cost her the relationship with her own sister.

Kudos to Heather Tom, who has been stellar as a woman becoming unhinged, and who is being wronged by her husband and her own sister, and Katherine Kelly Lang, who showed the complexities of woman seemingly wanting to do right by her sister, but is completely unable to stay out of the life of the man she loves.

Watch the kiss-off scene between Katie and Brooke below.  Then let us know what you thought of the performances?  Katie’s volatile words to a deserving Brooke, and what you think will happen next?  Comment below!

I loved it! It has been a long time since I have actually watched an entire episode without hitting the ff button! Kudos to both ladies for delivering great performances.

The way this story is repeated over and over again is sickening. Brooke and Bill get together, Katie has a fit, then forgives and repeat, repeat, repeat.

I was watching a few days ago and Heather had already come out of the gate at lightning speed. She can really pack a punch when she delivers her performances. I loved her as Victoria on Y&R but she keeps nailing it as Katie on B&B. I think I see another Emmy going on her shelf at home…

The acting was stellar, IA. But I couldn’t escape the feeling that I’ve seen Katie confront Brooke before, because we have. I’m tired of the repetition. If Bradley Bell has any common sense, he’ll keep Bill and Katie apart for a very long time, and tell another story. It doesn’t matter to me if Brooke and Bill stay together. I just want something new. Maybe it’ll be Katie being hospitalized and dealing with her alcoholism. Or it could be a custody battle between Katie and Bill. Anything new would be much appreciated at this point.

As I said in a recent post regarding this subject, I think Heather Tom owned the show on Friday. I was feeling Katie’s pain and heart break all week, and Friday’s episode was like the icing on the cake. Ms. Tom really out did herself with this performance. Not to slight Katherine Kelly Lang’s performance. The breakdown scene at the end of the show was flawless. All in all, I think Friday’s episode was one of the best B&B has put out in a long while. I think every actor gave their “A” game. I only hope this situation brings… Read more »

Love Heather and Katherine who are both stellar actresses…Now it’s time for Katie to be strong and make Bill pay and down the road hopefully there will be a man to come into Katie’s life that appreciates her.

It’s about time! Kick the Stallion to the curb and leave Brooke to herself. This is just as sickening as Billy, Phyllis & Jack on Y&R. You know that Rick and Eric, another lost man, with a notorious wandering eye, will rally around Brooke.

Really great performances, but having a bad case of deja vu. The last time this happened Katie took Bill to the cleaners, took over Spencer publishing, which I am sure she will do again. Last time she let Bill see his kid as long as Brooke wasn’t around, but I am sure this time will be a big custody fight, with both sides determine to win. I don’t know what it is like for an actress having to play the same story over and over, but as a viewer, great performances cannot cover up the fact this good bye speech… Read more »

Loved it with Heather and Katherine they were beautiful together and the end was so good I watched it several times.

Oh my gosh although both actress really did an excellent job, how many times is Katie going top call Brooke names, break down, and say goodbye. Does she not remember it was her that got them together to begin with. Just once I want to see Brooke tell Katie to grow the hell up and slap her across the face the way she slapped Brooke before. I’m sorry but Katie needs to grow up and stop with wanting to be babied all the time. She’s an adult and Brooke needs to treat her like one.

I forgot I am glad Katie is hurting after her trouble making with Ridge, Thomas &Caroline. Maybe next time she’ll keep her nose on her face.

I LOVED this episode and watched it three times. I am a fairly new watcher to B&B, but the acting has kept me coming back for more. I hope we do not have to watch Brooke turn to Ridge (Hasn’t that already happened several times?) Heather Tom won the 2017 Emmy for Best Actress in this past week’s episode. Now, let’s see here sock it to Dollar Bill.

I also love the Steffi/Liam/Wyatt story and Caroline/Thomas. Ridge seems too mature for Caroline.

Too bad Bill has the ONLY thing she really cares about. She should be nowhere near that little boy right now. I agree with Bill 100% with Bill here.

Excellent performance, especially from Heather. This storyline has really given her the chance to shine.

Why there two actors are not given more moments like this in their shared and separate stories is beyond me. They are awesome. That said, I need for this story to be done. Am so weary of the repetition that goes on in the land of Forresters, Logans, and Spencers. It is time for Katie to take charge and be the smart savvy woman she is without a man. Maybe she can take charge of Spencer and get involved in a mystery story. Brooke needs to accept one man and be done; really become the new Stephanie and quit being… Read more »

I am still laughing that Katie called Brooke the “slut from the valley.” Priceless.

I know that ALL soaps recyle storylines, but B&B circles them back around so quickly and tell it in the exact same manner that it’s sad. Sad that this show which has so much potential isn’t better than what it is. The Katie and Brooke sl….weren’t we just here?! Quinn being crazy. Well, Quinn can remain crazy. I find her fun, but I was hoping they’d put her with Liam. I just need to take some time away from this soap I guess.

Could we now get a new story for Katie? I kinda like the idea of Liam and Katie… Maybe Katie will allow herself to be a bit more controversial now… To stick it to Brooke. Brooke Logan is an empty shell. Worse, she is an empty shell getting old.

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.

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.
