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 »

I love Taylor and Eric. John McCook is funny. Seems like a great guy. Glad to see him front and center in a new storyline. Long overdue for him and Hunter.

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.

Ewwww….
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.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.
