Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) has been off The Bold and the Beautiful for several months, because she went to Europe to take part in the ballroom dance competition Dancing with the Stars Italy!  As so many of us rooted for her back in the U.S, we followed her progress and the competition via social media, and videos on the Internet, while those in Italy watched live on TV.

As witnessed, American viewers noticed that the Italian judges seemed to be a bit more mean-spirited than their stateside counterparts, which seemed to be a trademark of the program abroad.

In a new interview with TV Guide Magazine Michael Logan heralding the highly-anticipated return of Katherine as Brooke back to The Bold and the Beautiful now that her “Dancing” days are done, the international fan favorite and star of the CBS soap chatted about her experience, and what will happen when Brooke returns to Los Angeles to see the shambles of all the relationships she knew of, before she left town!  Look for Katherine to first air on the January 22nd episode of the sudser. Here are a few interesting excerpts below from the TVG chitchat!

Katherine on if she thinks the DWTS Italy judges were particularly more mean to her than the other celebrity contestants: “They were definitely more mean to me. They do it for the ratings and they change the rules every single day so you cannot possibly explain how the show works. I thought it would be fun to go over and compete on a dance program. (Laughs) Well, I was wrong! It turned out to be more of a reality show with dance involved and they really want to provoke you. They want to see your reactions. They want to see tears and anger. And they really want to see you fire back some retorts, which is so not my style. I don’t like reality shows at all so, when I realized what was really going on, I was taken aback. I think maybe they thought they’d hired my character. They kept calling me Brooke. I kept saying, ‘My name is Kelly!'”

Katherine on what Brooke will do since she knows how her daughter Hope played by the exited Kim Matula lost her baby:  “Brooke knows all about Hope losing the baby because Hope came to visit her in Europe — none of which the audience got to see — and she seems to know about Quinn and Deacon being together. My first scenes back are with Rena Sofer and Sean Kanan, and Brooke says to Deacon, “So…you and Quinn, huh?” (Laughs) And it goes downhill from there. Brooke never trusted Quinn.”

So, what did you think about Katherine’s DWTS Italy experience?  How the judges treated her?  And, are you excited for Brooke to return to the canvas?  When Brooke does come back, who do you want her love match to be this go-round? Comment below!

She was stiff as a board. The judges got it right.

The one I saw she wasn’t that great, but I think the judges were a bit harsh. And not even being able to get her name right is disrespectful.

How did she do overall, in the standings?

It is so true our culture seems to be devolving back to Roman times when watching people get mauled by lions was sport— but we have bright spots like the holiday season when for a moment, just a moment the world remembers what love and charity is supposed to be like– wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and better days in the New Year– Mary SF

Hear! Hear! To both Jimh and Mary. I made a choice the last few weeks to not dwell on the news and enjoy the season. I’m lucky to work in a large bookstore. The customers were very giving, friendly and “civilized” if not a little anxious about what presents to get for loved ones and friends. Makes you realize there is still hope in the world for the better nature of humans.

I read that she made more $$$ doing this than she makes all year on “Bold and the Beautiful.”

Those judges were evil bullies, I am American Italian and I felt really bad for Kelly. Those judges had no class and mean and unclassy. Welcome back Kelly.

The judges were WAY harsh and they were definitely trying to provoke her. I’m glad her and JMW are headed back to BOLD. They have handled Brooke’s exit very well and the show kept chuggin along. Brooke will def have her hands full when she gets back. Dealing with Quinn and Deacon, finding out about Maya/Rick/Caroline, Ridge’s involvement with Caroline, Katie and Bill reuniting, and Taylor wanting Eric back!!! Also Hope’s eventual return!!! Brooke needs to be refreshed and ready and firing on ALL cylinders!! The character needed a break and I can’t wait to see what happens when she… Read more »

And I hope they DO NOT have some new man follow Brooke back from Milan with a story of some torrid love affair they had while she was away!!!!!

I only saw one of KKL’s dances, and she was awful! HOWEVER, the judges were particularly mean and she didn’t deserve the way the skewered her. And I am NOT a fan of KKL and I thought it was awful.

What I think about Katherine’s DWTS Italy experience ? I’ve seen all dance by KK and my opinion : that was a big disaster. She should be “Broke” and don’t be anything else.
Italy judges were not more mean to her – unfortunately: she could not dance -that is fact !!!!!!
Merry Christmas to everyone !

Look…I’m sorry that those DWTS judges a la Italy were mean and mean-spirited to KKL but let’s face it…judges on A-L-L reality shows D-O-N-‘T mince words, D-O-N-‘T care about hurt feelings and (most of all) offer N-O apologies!!!!! Also, Katherine should have known from the VERY BEGINNING that DWTS a la Italy is an ACTUAL reality show!!!!! She CANNOT be that naive!!!!! One more thing: When Katherine’s character of Brooke comes back to B&B in January, I hope to G-O-D that Brooke DOES NOT interfere in Deacon and Quinn’s relationship!!!!! Deacon and Quinn’s relationship is N-O-N-E of Brooke’s business!!!!! To:… Read more »

the mean-spiritedness of the judges may well be an accurate assessment – though by no means were they meaner than say Simon Cowell on the old American Idol – and when they see good dancing, they do praise it. Truth is KKL thought she could coast on her celebrity status (the ways Ronn Moss did on the very same show a few years back when he got very far without really deserving to do so), and she was much too awful to have a chance of doing that. For an actress, who works with her body and physicality day in… Read more »

I look forward to KLL’s return to B&B. Without Brooke and Hope, this show is a shell of its former self.

And have you noticed that they are bumping up the minutes of precious screen time for their exterior shots?!

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

This past week, General Hospital fans were thrilled with the news that longtime fan favorite, Kristina Wagner (Felicia) was on her way back to the soap opera to tape new episodes.  However on Saturday, the actress shared even bigger news.  She is back on contract at the ABC daytime drama series.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.

‘Dr. Oz Show’ Taken Off the Air in NY and PA Due to Senate Run; Daphne Oz ‘The Good Dish’ to Fill Time Slot

In light of his announcement that he will be running as a republican senate candidate in the state of Pennsylvania, Dr Oz’s daytime talk and medical show, The Dr. Oz Show, is being taken off the air in key markets in New York and Pennsylvania, according to the Fox Station Group.

According to Deadline’s sources, Fox TV Stations proceeded with pulling the Sony Pictures TV-distributed syndicated series because of the prospect of being forced to give other political candidates running in Pennsylvania equal time, expressing that it “would be a nightmare for us, there was no way we were going to be able to do that.”

In its place, look for Dr. Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz, to be the fill-in with her show.

Starting on January 18th, Daphne’s The Good Dish, will take over the time slot during the duration of her father’s political campaign.  This potentially could go all the way through November of 2022, if Oz remains in the race through election day.

Last fall, Fox TV Stations renewed The Dr. Oz Show for two more years which gave it life through 2023.

So, do you think more stations will go bye-bye and have The Dr. Oz show pulled? What do you think of daughter Daphne’s series as the fill-in? Comment below.
