Jeff Schroeder, one of the most popular contestants ever on Big Brother and now a host on CBS.com, is making a return visit to the The Bold and the Beautiful on the upcoming August 27th episode where he plays … a janitor/production assistant on the Room 8 show-within-show that stars Karla Mosley and Lawrence Saint-Victor’s characters of Maya and Carter!

Schroeder talked with TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan to get the low down on what goes on when he makes his appearance on B&B, and what he thinks about all those nasty remarks and slurs the houseguests of Season 15 of Big Brother have been making that has caused a media firestorm.   Here are a few excerpts below!

Jeff on his role on B&B and returning to the soap for the first time in four years: (Laughs) I’m still screwing up my lines! I had a scene with Karla who was super-awesome but, when we were on set, it was all so real and she was looking right into my eyes and I got caught up in the moment and forgot what I was supposed to say! I got it on the second take, so I didn’t embarrass myself too badly. I play a production assistant—slash—janitor at the Room 8 show. I have a mop and a huge garbage can, but I really felt at home cleaning floors because I got into a little trouble in high school and had to be a janitor for the rest of my senior year.”

Jeff on what his reaction to the racism, sexism and homophobia that’s running rampant in the Big Brother house this season:  “I am so surprised! The houseguests know they’re on camera 24/7 and should be much more aware of what they’re saying. Now they’re going to have to pay for it once the game is over. Some have already paid by losing their jobs, though they don’t know it yet. Hopefully, they’ll learn from what they’ve done wrong, but I don’t think the answer is spreading hate with more hate. I’ve seen a lot of things being said about this situation online and some of the viewer responses are just as ugly as what’s being said in the house. I don’t like all this public bashing. Fighting hate with hate doesn’t work. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t condone the terrible stuff that’s being said in the house, nor am I trying to protect those players but I believe educating them when they get out is the key. You can only hope they’ll learn from their mistakes and become better people.”

So what do you think about Jeff coming over to B&B for another visit? What is your take on the intolerance and bigotry shown by the houseguests on Big Brother 15?  Weigh-in!

He doesn’t condone it yet he himself is homophobic. Interesting. He had such an issue with dumbledore being gay that he fought with Kalia about it.

Jeff is against all the racist and homophobic remarks in the Big Brother House this year? This from the guy that said Gays should NOT be allowed to teach kids in schools when he was last on the show???? Ok.

I am so happy to hear that Jeff is back on the soaps. Well deserved. Jeff is a very nice person with a wonderful spirit. If he step back into the house he would bring some positive energy. That’s what’s needed right now!!! It breaks my heart to see the bigotry on the show this season. I don’t think that they can change the way they feel, they have a right but it doesn’t make it right. It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it!!!!. It’s 2013 and those people still don’t get it. Shame on them!!!! When… Read more »

Awful cbs is such a mess. They’re subjecting howard and candace and helen and the other people to the degrading comments from gina marie and jeremy and aaryn all for ratings. Their ratings rose when cbs aired all of the crap from those 3 contestants. They would have been booted off the show if ratings plummeted after cbs aired it. And aaryn is the worst. That name is obviously an anagram for aryan w/c is really apt for her. cbs is criticizing aaryan for mocking an African american w/ her stereotypical speech and telling an Asian american to “make rice”.… Read more »

Like Jeff said, these ‘contestants’ know FULL well what to expect and what they have to do to compete. Any consequences of their disgusting behavior is fair game once they are outside. I don’t want anything sugar coated BUT this whole show has disintegrated into a hot mess of hatred and superiority. Where is the fun? Where are the contestants that would use their mind instead of spouting grade school level taunts? Not a fan CBS, not a fan.

Educating them? They’re too stupid and racist to understand something that basic. aryan kept saying she’s not a racist and doesn’t understand how anyone would call her that. She can’t be educated bec she’s that racist. It’s not surprising that there’s racism towards racial minorities bec that’s america’s culture. But it’s strange how much blatant racism is recently being directed at racial minorities who are public figures. There’s cbs reality tv show and now nbc latino is reporting that pop singer marc anthony is being bashed w/ racist slurs for his rendition of God bless america on mlb game. Racists… Read more »

Adore Jeff, and happy to see him involved in any project. He lights up a room with his smile and sincerity. As for the BB houseguests this year, educating them is a great idea, because sadly, a few of them are downright ignorant, but will get a huge dose of reality when they leave the Big Brother house. Wishing Jeff much good luck!!!

Racist jeremy was voted outta the house and eliminated! Only 1 person didn’t vote for him. Bye to that racist jeremy! And racist aryan nation was nominated! On b&b: jeff was asked abt his acting gigs and how he’s taking away acting gigs from trained actors bec he’s a reality tv personality. He answered that reality tv personalities get a lot of opportunities w/ acting. It’s bec anyone can act. Someone that says his lines can act. That’s the only requirement really for actors. The proliferation of reality tv shows demonstrates that. It’s pretty much understood by the audience that… Read more »

I’m glad Jeff got a role on Bold & Beautiful although I don’t watch soaps anymore(hehe), but I may tune into just to catch him. Also happy to find out that Jeff’s a Gemini like me. Thought he was an Aquarius for some reason. Back to the subject. I’m soooo glad Jeff spoke his mind about the Bigotry in the BB house. He’s right. You definitely can’t fight hate with hate, “you gotta love unselfishly”(Yolanda Adams-Gotta Have Love). J eff, Rachel and Brendan really touched my heart when they spoke out against the wrong doing. They’re truly good people! Cool… Read more »

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.
