The Bold and the Beautiful is going to be the show with an exciting milestone in 2017, as the number one series around the world turns 30 years old!  There is much planned for the celebration, but an exciting development revealed today has that B&B, who is soap-famous for their exquisite location shoots around the globe, is headed back to Australia for a very special series of episodes.  It’s all due in part to a partnership with Quantas, Australia’s national air carrier, who announced the news.

B&B will go down under next month February 12-17 to tape multi-episodes. Series executive producer and head writer, Bradley Bell said in a statement, “This will be an epic celebration for our fans around the world. We are preparing to film the most glamorous location shoot in soap opera history. Collaborating with Qantas, Network TEN and CBS, viewers will witness romance, high style, jaw-dropping twists, harrowing stunts and major cliffhangers, all hallmarks of ‘Bold and Beautiful'”.

Cast members who will be part of the Aussie shoot will be: Scott Clifton (Liam), Don Diamont (Bill), Thorsten Kaye (Ridge), Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke), John McCook (Eric), Rena Sofer (Quinn),  Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy), and Australian’s own Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy),

The last time The Bold and the Beautiful visited Australia to tape some remote episodes was back in 2007, when the show turned 20!

So, what do you think will happen that will bring the characters to Australia? What will be the backdrop of the glamorous location shoot teased by Bell? Comment below!

Those trips have money backing . Airline, travel agency, plaements etc etc..
CBS has good advertising partners and scratching of palms..
good for them they know how to work it..

Su…I agree. Better than just product placement in scenes. And my goodness, couldn’t GH/ABC work a travel arrangement through Disney Travel. They go lots of places.

Hey Rose…it would seem ABC doesn’t have the budget for these trips which is the same reason I think they’re hiring younger actors instead of using vets which command higher salaries. Until/if the GH ratings go up which translates to more advertising dollars, they’re pretty much grounded in Port Charles…

Maybe it could come out of the Disney advertising/promo budget. Disney Vacations still has to market themselves, their cruises and international destinations. For instance if they play up Cassadine Island again, it could be nice to see some beaches, and other reasons Greece makes for a good destination. One can hope.

rena/quinn and john/eric renew their vows steam gets married either bridge or brill get married.

More cheesy treats….

It’s a wedding storyline. It’s always a wedding storyline. Meh

Who cares where you shoot if it’s the same lame story over, and over, and over……..

Brooke n ridge wedding, or bill interupting the wedding or ridge n quinn secret bout their kiss

Yep. Sooooooo unpredictable! LOL.

Filming beautiful scenes in lush locations has never been a problem for B&B. It’s always been story. I hope that they will use this opportunity to move these 8 characters (Quinn, Eric, Brooke, Bill, Ridge, Steffy, Ivy and Liam) in new directions because the show is same old, same old, and based on Nielsen ratings, people aren’t liking what they’re seeing. I’m hoping Bill and Brooke get married, Quinn and Eric stay married, and Ridge is out in the cold. Ivy is shown so rarely, I hope she has more to do than to try to break up Liam and Steffy. It all starts on the page, B&B, and you have to do better.

Sounds like fun, and certainly a great break for the same old, tired story sets…and this applies to all soaps. Too bad they aren’t bringing Wyatt for Ivy.

I like Wyatt and Ivy too but didn’t she also have a thing for Liam? Wyatt is so good-looking and charming, he shouldn’t be the lesser brother who always gets his brother’s “rejects.” (And by that I don’t mean any of these girls are rejects…they’re all stunning and worthy…but rejects in the sense rejected by Liam.)

On a side note…we have to wait sooooo long for both Poldark and Outlanders. These season breaks are ridiculous.

Can’t wait. Sounds fabulous. B&B always does great location shoots.

I cant wait to see what the show has to bring. I’ve been watching B&B for many years and I’ve always been intrigued by what it has to offer. Now my 4 yr old granddaughter watches it and has been into it for a year. Keep up the good work.

Beautiful scenery with rinse, wash, repeat, and , repeat storylines, repeat………

OMG I CANNOT WAIT! When Brad promises jaw dropping twists, he delivers! Maybe Hope will pop up Down Under!

Steffy and Liam location wedding!! And even, maybe, Bill and Brooke wedding??

As I read the names of the cast going to Australia, I happily noticed that Wyatt was missing. Yay! Dislike that character. Insipid, whiny and needy.

Hi Daisy, I have always thought of the character that way!

Not me. I love Wyatt.

While you’re waiting, there is at least a coloring book for Outlanders. :)))

Wow…I didn’t know about the coloring book. I actually might get it! Funny, now it’s the “trendy” thing..for adults to color. But before the trend I have actually bought kids coloring books a few times, got myself some crayons…glass of red wine…put on some nice music. Very fun, relaxing…cathartic.

Drawing Jamie/Sam’s face would, however, add an extra spark to my crayon!

I watched the news tonight and it sent chills up my spine.

I thought you were describing Liam. 🙂

My guilty pleasure is B&B and I love Australia! Love the idea of B&B filming there and can’t wait to see what happens.

I am closerthanthis to dropping B&B I find the story lines repetitive. And location shots are nice but find B&B uses more time airing scenic shots

I’m looking forward to it. For those complaining about the same old story lines, they must be doing something right with the current ratings here and internationally. I tend to agree however about those same tired story lines, wash, rinse and repeat.

I hope that Ivy gets back her accent. It was ridiculous to make her lose it in the first place. It’s part of her charm.

So who is NOT getting married this time?

Australia again?!! There are other beautiful countries that could offer great backdrops that the show hasn’t been to. I suggest Canada; Montreal, Quebec City, Vancouver, the Maritimes.. come on up, B&B!

Ummm— correct me if I am wrong but aren’t those characters pretty the whole cast right now- oh sure there are other characters but how often are they on screen? Poor Australians they will never know the joy of one of Pam’s lemon bars- LOL

Mary SF…It would be nice if B&B did an on-line, mini-cookbook with Pam’s recipes. It’s not totally unheard of when a popular character likes to cook. Patricia Cornwell did a real cookbook based on Dr. Kay Scarpetta from her popular series, who would unwind from her high pressure job by going home and cooking. You would get hungry just reading those parts of the book…just like Pam’s lemon bars. There are other authors who have done the same, they just don’t come to mind right now.


Ivy suggests Liam and Steffy get married in Australia. I can’t believe BandB is going to continue to add to viewer fatigue with these two characters. It’s ridiculous. So sick of steffy Every. Single. Day.

I really hope that this will be a STEAM wedding location. Those of us who love them have waited FOREVER for this moment. I can’t wait. In any even, thanks Bell for the STEAM scenes of late. I agree with what Steffy said to Liam….”Nothing boring about us…never will be.” To that end, this location and the drama should be great. I’m also loving the blooming connection with Quinn and Ridge.

As long as it just stays a connection…but we know it won’t, or a nosy neighbor could stir the pot.

Can’t wait. I really hope that this will be a BRILL wedding location, an epic Brill reunion to celebrate the 30th anniversary would be perfect!!!Brooke needs to dump Ridge and his cheating ass soon and run back to Bill. Brill are number 1 in cbs soaps indepth mag .it is the 5th week. It is a huge accomplishment and Brill fans need to be rewarded for their loyalty and devotion.

Congratulations Mr. Bell I love watching B&B. I hope to watch every episode that is filmed in Australia. Can’t wait, woohoo!!

The Bold & the Beautiful rock!

Y-E-T more scenes featuring that IDIOTIC twosome of Liam/Steffy. That figures……….

Betcha we will get a lot of flashbacks in the near future from this trip. Just today we had to see all the Steffy and Liam weddings flashbacks shown again and again and yet again.


The Bold and the Beautiful’s Tanner Novlan on Sheila’s Death: “Normally, Finn Would Be Right There with Steffy and Helping Her Through It, But Someone Needs to Help Finn Through This.”

This past week, viewers of The Bold and the Beautiful watched in shock as Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) was stabbed and eventually died, when Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) in self-defense plunged a knife into the supervillain.

According to all accounts, for now, Kimberlin Brown has exited the series, leaving fans in disbelief. Many believe it’s a set-up against Steffy, and Sheila has not really met her maker. At the epicenter of the story is also Tanner Novlan (Finn). In key moments, it appears that Finn blames his wife for his biological mother’s death, which sends him reeling and not comforting his wife.

Instead, he runs out of the cliff house and goes to Deacon’s (Sean Kanan) where he sits in devastation, only at the end of Friday’s episode to be comforted by none other than Hope (Annika Noelle). All leading to speculation that Finn and Hope are about to hook up. Tanner appeared on the newest episode of Bold Live after the week’s episodes where he fielded questions from callers on what inquiring B&B fans want to know.

During the call-in show, Novlan addressed if he thinks or knows if Sheila is actually alive. He responded, “Who knows? It is the soap world, but we definitely had to say goodbye to Kimberlin at work and that was really tough and really sad.”

While fans love their ‘Sinn’, Tanner agreed that they are seemingly an enduring couple, but the death of Finn’s mom will challenge them in a whole new way as his core values are tested. “I don’t think anyone wants to see ‘Sinn’ go away. They have one of the best relationships in soaps. It’s really interesting to see all of these different elements thrown at them and the them survive and how they battle through it,” he explained. “With this recent reaction it was different than the other ones, and the challenges they faced. I think it’s a moment where Finn is really rocked, and you’re right, his values, we know them. That is what is so great in playing him, in that, he has such great, true honest values.”

When getting the scripts in which Finn points the finger at Steffy for his mother’s death and does not comfort her, Novlan shared his reaction, “In this moment he (Finn) is having a really hard time, mentally, which I think as an actor when I read that I was like, ‘Why isn’t he standing by his wife? What’s going on? This is not like him.’ This is something deep in him that has been triggered and he’s going to have to figure that out.” Tanner added, “Normally, Finn would be right there with Steffy and helping her through it, but someone needs to help Finn through this.”

All leading to what fans saw on Friday’s episode. Hope comforted Finn in his grief. While Novlan is not giving anything away, he told a caller, about a potential Finn/Hope pairing that, “Finn would have to battle Thomas (Matthew Atkinson), and that might be a mountain to climb. I think Finn just needs someone to talk to. That relationship feels platonic to me.”

Watch the entire episode of BOLD Live featuring Novlan below.

Now let us know, do you think Hope and Finn will hit the sheets? Will Steffy and Finn ultimately divorce only to reunite down the line? Will Sheila come back alive and well, once Steffy is locked up behind bars for her “murder”? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Haley Pullos Attempts to Strike Deal with Prosecutors and Change Plea to “Guilty” for Lower Sentence in DUI Crash Case

At a hearing this week, the attorney’s for General Hospital actress Haley Pullos (ex-Molly) and the LA District attorney met with a judge in Pasadena, California who was informed the parties were working out a “potential settlement.” Pullos did not attend the hearing.

Haley is allegedly attempting to negotiate a deal with prosecutors, that if she changes her plea to “guilty,” that she would receive a lesser sentence which could result in limited or no jail time. Another part of the negotiation could potentially give Pullos a suspended sentence or house arrest.

Currently, Pullos is facing up to three years in prison after she pleaded ‘not guilty’ to a DUI and a second charge for a hit-and-run. Pullos was in a near-fatal car crash back in June of 2023, when she drove the wrong way on a Pasadena freeway while she was under the influence. and crashed into a another car.

The other driver, Courtney Wilder, was rushed in critical condition to a local hospital to undergo emergency surgery, and is now suing the GH actress in civil court, plus seeking damages for negligence. Last month, Wilder allegedly added Pasadena’s No Comment Lounge to his lawsuit, where reportedly Pullos was working as a hostess the night of the accident. Wilder is accusing the nightspot of plying Pullos with liquor, and then allowing her to drive home in her car, which later caused his injuries.

After the Wednesday February 28th hearing, the judge has now scheduled yet another hearing on April 8 which he said ‘should be the final’ one.

According to the Daily Mail, “Deputy District Attorney Melany Avanessians told Judge Smerling that if no plea agreement is in place by April 8, ‘we will send her to a preliminary hearing’ meaning Pullos would be on her way to a full trial.”

Since Pullos’ legal troubles, GH has recast her role of Molly Lansing-Davis three different times. First with Holiday Mia Kriegel, and she was followed by Brooke Anne Smith. The latest Molly, Kristen Vaganos, seems to be a keeper at the moment during the Molly, TJ (Tajh Bell0w) and Kristina (Kate Mansi) surrogacy storyline.

Pullos joined GH as Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Ric Lansing’s (Rick Hearst) daughter back in 2009 and was with the show till the  summer of 2023 prior to the car collision.

What are your thoughts on Haley trying to change her plea to ‘guilty’ to receive a lesser sentence? Let us know in the comment section below.
