Winsor Harmon (Thorne) who had not gotten to play a major story of his own for several years, has been taken off contract from The Bold and the Beautiful. According to a show spokesperson and CBS Soaps In Depth:  “Winsor Harmon is now on recurring status. It was a mutually agreed upon transition which will allow Winsor to pursue other projects while allowing B&B to have him remain as Thorne Forrester.”

The blood bath has officially begun. Harmon’s the first sacrificial lamb to Frantz’s altar. Frantz hasn’t encountered a storyline she couldn’t chew and shriek her way through, and once B&B becomes the Amber show, more actors will be axed, just like B&B axed Barbara Crampton, Kimberlin Brown, Tracey Bregman, Paul Satterfield, Paul Williams, Marissa Tate, Andrea Evans and the actors that potrayed Grant, Carmen and Mary/Erica to make more storylines for Amber or to redeem Amber. I wouldn’t be surprised if Brad bell axes Aaron Spears, Rick Hearst, Sarah Brown, Texas Battle, Heather Tom, Don Diamont and eventually Alley Mills for more storylines to revolve around Amber.

This isnt AF’s fault. Thorne hasnt had a real story in years. Its better this way. He can find other jobs other than just being a prop.

It may or may not be Frantz’s “fault”. However, history has shown that Brad Bell has fired many actors for the expansion of Amber’s role on B&B. He stated in many interviews in the past during Frant’z first, awful run as storyline hogging Amber that actors were fired/characters were written out to focus on Amber and the younger set (w/c revolved around Amber). Crampton, Buchanan, Kimberlin Brown, Bregman, Williams, Satterfield were all axed to focus on Amber. Despite fan clamoring, Marissa tate’s Becky was killed off so that Amber would get custody of Lil’ Eric (w/c meant more storylines for Frantz). Andrea Evans was written off the show by making Tawney the scapegoat in the baby switch, w/c redeemed Amber and made Frantz stick around instead of being written off the show. Same w/ the actress that portrayed Carmen (I don’t remember her name, but she was the Latina actress that got preggers w/ Sean Kanan’s baby). Anyways, she was fired and her character was killed off while battling w/ Amber on a roof so Amber would have more drama again regarding Lil’ Eric. When Kimberlin Brown’s Sheila returned, her storyline revolved around Amber and making Mary/Erica become Rick’s wife. Those actresses were fired when their characters were written out because Amber had to be the heroine in yet a new arc. So the likelihood of actors from B&B being fired for more storylines for Frantz has a precedent. Thorne is a legacy character that has been on the canvas since day 1. They could have created many storylines for Thorne, even w/ a new actor in the role. How many single father storylines are written well on daytime? Alexandra (they should have named her Thora IMO) is sure to be a troubled teen since her mother Darla was killed and run over by her ex-aunt/almost step-mother Taylor, w/c was covered up by her and her own grandmother Stephanie. Those would be interesting storylines over Amber’s Saga yet again. But it’s not surprising that he is put on recurring while the likes of Frantz gets a contract since Brad bell loves writing for Amber/Frantz.

Winsor Harmon is the only reason I began watching this show. I stayed with it throught all of Brad Bell’s god awful story lines these past few years because Winsor is my favorite actor. I watched for a chance to possibly see him on screen. Now that he’s leaving, so am I. I’m finished with this show. I know that he’s filming two movies this year and I am very happy for him and look forward to seeing him in them. I read where he’s in pre-production now for one of them. Good luck Winsor, I wish you happiness and success.

Soaps Lift Boycott Threat Of Daytime Emmys

In a key move to allow those performers in front of the camera and behind the scenes crew and creatives to be acknowledged for their accomplishments this calendar year, the four daytime dramas collectively have decided to lift their threatened boycott and participate in the upcoming 46th annual Daytime Emmy competition.

This comes after the four network soaps (Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless) banded together after being unsatisfied with snafu’s coming out of the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards earlier this year in April, and a list of grievances and concerns they asked to be addressed by the organization that administers the Emmy contest.

Then, following an internal investigation by NATAS by the law firm of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth of Washington, DC, the results which were released on November 8th, and being in receipt of their findings, the soaps decided to move forward while still having concerns they want addressed.

In a statement from the group, a spokesperson related to Deadline, who broke the story late Friday: “As a group, we are not in agreement with all of the conclusions that NATAS reached.  However, in the spirit of working with NATAS and the TV Academy on improving the integrity of the Daytime Emmys, we have lifted our boycott. We look forward to meeting with NATAS to discuss their findings and our concerns in greater detail.”

On Saturday, someone close to the situation said to Michael Fairman TV: “Our participation doesn’t mean we accept their proposal moving forward, we still have major issues that we will be discussing with the Chair and President (of NATAS), but as a collective whole, we don’t want to penalize our actors for NATAS’ mis-management.”

The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy submissions began earlier this week on November 12th, with the Daytime Emmys slated to be handed out in early May of 2019.

So, are you glad that the network soaps have lifted their threatened boycott so that your favorite performers, whose performances you have loved over the last 11 months can be acknowledged for their talents and hard work? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
