B&B's John McCook On His Crossver To Y&R & Taylor & Eric's Sexcapades!

The Bold and the Beautiful’s John McCook (Eric) will be seen on upcoming episodes of The Young and the Restless on March 18th and 19th, when Eric Forrester comes to Genoa City to help Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) with the perfect gown for her nuptials to Victor!  As this will be Nikki’s fourth wedding to Victor, Eric is hired by La Nikki N., to design the gown for the big day.  What is most interesting for long time Y&R fans celebrating the big 40th anniversary of the show all month long, is that McCook’s first soap role was that of Lance Prentiss on the number one soap!

TV Guide spoke to the soap veteran to get this thoughts on his trip to Y&R and Eric’s recent B&B hook-up with Taylor (Hunter Tylo)!  Here are a few excerpts below:

McCook on Eric helping design Nikki’s 12th wedding dress, and participating in the wedding sequences:   “It’s another Forrester classic! It’s not a dress for an 18-year-old girl. It’s a grownup dress for a grownup woman. Melody Thomas Scott looked beautiful. It had a nice train on it. (Laughs) That’s about all I know. It had a train! I was too busy sweating my ass off to notice anything else. They sat me next to a roaring fireplace during the ceremony. I’m, like, ‘What the f–k? Couldn’t you put somebody else by the fire…like somebody under 60?’ The actors from Y&R refused to sit there so they gave the chair to the poor guy from the other soap across the hall. I was sweating so bad people thought Eric was nervous about the dress. I said, ‘That’s not nerves. I’m roasting to death!’ But, otherwise, I had a great time. Eric has scenes with Lauren and Michael, Neil, and Victor and Nikki, of course. Eric Braeden (Victor) was in a very good mood that day. (Pause) Uh…I don’t mean to imply that’s unusual. (Laughs)

McCook on Eric sleeping with Taylor on B&B: “I  didn’t want Eric jumping into bed with just any available set of boobs, but he’s a horndog and he’s been alone for 12 weeks. That’s eons in soap time! Hey, he wasn’t getting any from Stephanie. He’s probably gone five years without sex. Her death freed him up to sniff around the neighborhood. Yeah, people are shocked, but we need this kind of tension and excitement on our show. Any publicity is good publicity, as long as I don’t have to look at it. I don’t go online because it scares the s–t out of me. I don’t want to hear all that negative stuff. I’m just happy to contribute to the show and be working in a storyline that impacts a lot of characters. I don’t need the rest of it.”

So soapers, what do you think of Eric coming to Genoa City to help Nikki? And Taylor and Eric as a couple? Weigh-in!

I don’t like B&B, j(just marking time until AMC & OLTL are back!) but I like Eric and it is great that it is making Brooke go nuts! I think it will be fun to see him on Y&R!

Now that Jabot is getting into the fashion business I suspect there will be more crossovers in the future between the two shows. I do think it is in Eric’s character to want to sleep with Taylor- he is and always was as John put it – a horndog- but I was surprise Taylor when along with it– maybe she has been hanging around Brooke for far too long that now she is following in her footsteps by sleeping with every Forrester male in town, except her son of course.

She has already slept with the people Brooke has been with. She has even been with Rick. She doesn’t really have to wait for that.

Mary SF

That is what I meant- by sleeping with Eric Taylor has officially slept with every Forrester male, just like Brooke did. And the son I was referring to was Taylor’s son- Thomas- she can’t sleep with him for obvious reasons, but I thought if I didn’t mentioned that someone would call me on it since Thomas is a Forrester male. But thanks for giving me a chance to clear that up because I did word it in a way it makes it sound like I was talking about Rick.

I am loving that he is crossing over to Y&R for a short period of time. I have always kind of wanted Eric and Nikki to connect. But that’ll never happen.

As for the Eric/Taylor storyline, I am absolutely disgusted and disrespected by it. It’s completely wrong in every single sense of the word.

Beti

He is crossing over because he is designing Nikki’s wedding dress when she gets married the week of the 18th to Victor

I love Eric. JM is a great actor , but underrated and rarely “scripted” . I love him with Taylor they look good and stable together, and i love the idea of HunterT have more airtime, and being the Forrester matriarch which is very well deserved.but i m not going to cheer, I am thinking all the childish /envious stunts Bruk is gonna pull to separated them as she is a useless character with nothing better to do than annoying people… We know how Junior write and for who!! I wish CBS would ask Eric/JM to move with Taylor/HTylo to… Read more »

John McCook… is handsome…. sexy.. and a viable Man….

why shouldn’t he… it’s his harrah on the show….

JOHN McCOOK – still handsome after all these years. I like that he’s in to Taylor. talk about much needed story and potential for “HOW” Taylor would Queen B&B… looking on as matriarch Stephanie and closer than Taylor, Brooke had her chances… That allegiance Taylor had…

heck… i would….

this gives hunter tylo… some much needed press and stepping up…. this gives Taylor more relevance and shares her stifled feelings… all these years later? she respected Stephanie….

Great interview !!! =D
I Love Eric und Taylor together !!!
After all the honey that’s been drizzled on him and the lemon bars he’s been stuffed with Taylor is a welcomed breath of fresh air. Hope their feelings and relationship just continue to blossom, bloom and grow. And thanking the Lord that it’s not one of the Logan hags…..

I’m so glad Hunter is getting more airtime and front and center where she belongs!…it’s about time Brad Bell woke up and gave the fans what they’ve been asking for…I really wish Taylor haters would lay off the comments about Hunter having work done it’s so old and played out…I bet she looks a million times better than some of the people hating…Hunter still blows the older crowd out of the water in the looks dept if u ask me…you wanna talk about a bad lip job u need to look at Lisa Rinna from Days now she looks horrible!…I’m… Read more »

Taylor and Eric is very gross. Hunter is a terrible actress and I loath Taylor. KKL is a better actress. Stephanie chose Brooke as the matriarch not Taylor. Stephanie will turning in her grave on what is happening. Taylor never got caught or always find the way out. Brooke has always admitted her mistakes, unlike Taylor. I don’t know who writes for BB but is has been crap. I have stopped watching and but watch when Stephanie died, you can she became very close with Brooke, unlike Taylor. Brooke or KKL has more fan sites than Taylor/HT.

Sanctimonious Taylor! She is awful. I no longer want her with ANYONE.
Not to mention, if I have to see her fake boobs in another negligee, I’ll probably barf.

I do not like Taylor because she is allways in other people’s business except her own.

Anne Heche in “Extremely Critical Condition”; Still in Coma Following Fiery Car Crash

Although earlier reports over the weekend had soap opera alum and Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World) in stable condition following crashing her car into a home, on Monday an update on her condition looked more grim.

According to a statement provided to Deadline by Heche’s rep: “At this time Anne is in extreme critical condition. She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention. She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident.”

Since last Friday, Heche has been hospitalized following a harrowing incident where she crashed her car which caught fire into a private home in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles.

In addition, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Annie Hernandez told City News Service that investigators obtained a warrant for a blood draw from Heche.

Over the last few days, a new episode of Heche’s podcast “Better Together” with her co-host Heather Duffy was released, which showed the actress slurring her speech.

Erroneous reports said that the podcast which dropped on Friday, was also recorded that day, and that Heche had been drinking prior to her accident during the show.  However, it has come to light that Heche taped that episode last Tuesday, not the day of the crash.

Share your thoughts and prayers for Anne as we continue to monitor and update the situation on the film and TV star, via the comment section below.

‘That’s A Wrap’ For Dynasty’s Elizabeth Gillies & Adam Huber As They Share Farewells

The fifth and final season of CW’s Dynasty is currently playing out with the series finale to air in the early fall.

However, filming on the show wrapped this past week for series star Elizabeth Gillies (Fallon) and her on-screen husband, Adam Huber (Liam).  Each of them took to their Instagrams to share heartfelt goodbyes and ‘thank you’s’ for the journey they traveled as part of the reboot of the classic ABC primetime soap opera with its own twist.

Huber shared his thoughts, when he expressed: “That’s a wrap!! When I got the call in 2017 that I was going to be flying out to Atlanta to join the show DYNASTY for a few episodes I had no idea what it would turn into. 4 years of my life and 84 episodes later is what happened. I am beyond grateful for this show. This is the first time I’ve ever really been apart of something like this. I’ve learned a lot. I’ve cried a lot. And I’ve made friendships that will last a lifetime.

A huge thank you to anyone and everyone who was with me on this journey. Thank you to my friends and family for your non stop love and support. My manager and agents who are absolute rockstars. The crew that wakes up day after day working lonnnng hours so we can have a finished product. The writers, directors and producers for making this show the success that it is. The casting director for saying “I think I found our Liam” The entire cast for being so welcoming from the first day I stepped foot on set. The day players, extras, stand ins, all of you!!

And gigantic thank you to all the fans!!! Thank you for staying with us the whole time during this wild ride. Without you watching and binging on whatever platform you watch the show on, we would have not been able to bring you 5 seasons and 108 episodes of DYNASTY craziness. Thank you so much. From the bottom of my heart. This has been an experience I will never forget! 🖤Ps…new episode tonight!! I hope you enjoy the rest of the season! It’s going to be a lot of fun!”

Gillies, simply brought out her inner-Fallon with her Instagram post which said, “Every day, I take one man’s dirt and turn it into diamonds. And digging up insider info is even easier when they assume you work for the airline, instead of owning the plane. Bon Voyage, Fallon 🥂”

Elizabeth’s co-stars were quick to heap praise on the talented actress/singer/director (she directed the two most recent episodes of the series). Rafael de La Fuente who plays Sammy Jo, expressed: ‘What a gift for me to get to work with you for five years. Forever a fan, forever family.”

Pop superstar, Arianna Grande, a longtime friend, and Broadway co-star with Gillies in the musical 13, posted: “Oh my.congratulations, my Liz, on completing this massive and magnificent chapter with Fallon.  she is / you are utterly spectacular. !!!!!!!!! love youuu. sm.”

You can check out their farewell posts below.

So, sad to know that Liz and Adam have wrapped their run as the fifth and final season of Dynasty is coming to a close? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
