Brandon Beemer & Zack Conroy taken off contract at B&B! Beemer clarifies on Twitter!


News around the soap world today has that two of the younger leading men of the CBS soap, The Bold and the Beautiful, Brandon Beemer (Owen) and Zack Conroy (Oliver) have been taken off-contract.  Brandon has been with the series since 2008 and Zack since 2010.

A rep for the soap told CBS Soaps In Depth, “that while both actors have been dropped down to recurring status, they are still a part of the B&B family… which means that they will continue to drop by on-screen from time to time.”

Beemer took to his twitter page this morning to let his fans and followers know that this is not the last time you have seen Owen, and in fact he has major story this February with Lesley-Anne Down (Jackie) and Ashley Jones (Brdiget)! Brandon tweeted: “B&B fans: I’ve been off contract for quite a few months now, but all is good…nothing to worry about. That can change any time.  I’m working this week at B&B on some really great stuff that I know you’ll enjoy! thx for the kind words & support!”

Stay tuned cause ain’t over till it’s over!

Making way for OLTL actors? lol

But seriously, why get rid of the man candy???

Oh I KNOW! Hee Hee!

They wasted both of those guys, especially Zack Conroy. I followed him from GL. What a shame.

Yeah he was great on GL.

I thought Zack Conroy really popped off the screen on GL–a show that was dead, for soap’s sake–but Brad Bell has never had a clue what to do with him. Instead of dropping him into the quadrangle and making it a love pentagon, Oliver has been locked up in the basement with Thorne and Felicia. I really don’t know what’s going on with this show…SMH.

He was really good on Guiding Light! Sucks he came on right before it was cancelled.

There is no reason to watch B&B except the eye candy. Y&R should hire Zack as a recast for Ricky.

I disagree. Not every ep is a winner, but the show overall is quite good.

I do agree that the Ricky on Y&R is not charismatic or interesting and a recast might propel him into the story more and give fans a reason to want to see him. Right now, like so many on Y&R, he is superfluous.

It was absolutely ridick to break up Jowen. They need to get back together and we need more of those wacky photo shoots and Jowen working together on stuff. They’re better together than apart–especially since Bridget and Logan are off-screen. Obs the breakup was just so Jackie could be a potential third wheel with Steph and Eric, but that could have been accomplished without breaking Jowen up.

Anybody who goes over to B&B is really not secure but we have not seen much of these guys in forever. I will start watching again when they quit making Liam, Steffy and Hope the focus of the show.

missing zack conroy as a regular!!!

Guiding Light

Kim Zimmer Reveals Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Last night the stars of daytime came together for a one-of-a-kind three hour-plus virtual event Daytime Stands Up – A Benefit For Stand Up To Cancer – We All Have a Story.

Towards the top of the show Daytime Stands Up co-hosts Michael Fairman and Alan Locher welcomed former Guiding Light stars, Kim Zimmer (ex-Reva) and Tina Sloan (ex-Lillian).

During their segment both actresses initially discussed playing breast cancer storylines for their character on the beloved soap opera and the impact it made on them and the viewers at the time. However, later in the conversation, Kim made a heartfelt admission that she is currently battling breast cancer in real life.


Kim expressed, “I was diagnosed with breast cancer on November 6th. And if it wasn’t for a wonderful circle of friends that I have, and not to mention my husband AC Weary, and my family Rachel Max and Jake, who call me every day, I would’ve fallen apart. But because of my circle that I had, including fabulous doctors, early detection (was possible).

“I did have a mastectomy and I have my last infusion on Tuesday,” Zimmer added. “I would say to anyone that may get a diagnosis like I got. It’s so important that you find a support system.”

On how she is coping with her battle, Kim shared, “I’m a tough broad. But again, if I didn’t have the friends that I have, the support system that I have, the fabulous doctors, a fantastic plastic surgeon, I would’ve fallen apart. And I’m here to say early detection. Early detection. Early detection. Get your mammograms, get them soon.”

Earlier in the segment, when Kim talked about Reva’s breast cancer battle and how her character would not tell the love her life, Josh Lewis (Robert Newman), which maddened fans of the GL. Kim related, “The fans were like, ‘Why are you not telling Josh?” It made for great drama, though, It bonded Billy and Reva again in life.  We brought in the wonderful character of Colin, who was Reva’s by the book, cancer Doctor.”

“There were a lot of wonderful things that came out of the storyline,” recalled the four-time Daytime Emmy-winner. “I actually went back and watched the (standalone show) that they did on Reva finding out she had breast cancer. And I was like, ‘Wow. I can’t imagine not fighting that story today. But it ended up being written beautifully.”

The Young and the Restless Eileen Davidson to Chat Live on Ashley’s Alters Storyline

Fans of CBS daytime’s The Young and the Restless have been watching Ashley Abbott’s (Eileen Davidson) psyche split into multiple personalities. The trouble all started months ago over an argument with Tucker (Trevor St. John) and a flashback to a tragic car accident years ago.

Now Ashley is not herself.  She at times is either Ash, Ms. Abbott or the flamboyant Belle. Although her friend and psychiatrist from Paris, Alan Laurent (Christopher Cousins) has come to Genoa City at the urging of the Abbott family, he has been taking his time assessing Ashley and her behavior.

Looks like Ashley’s alter may be hell-bent on murdering Tucker during her mental anguish as the storyline takes even more twists and turns in upcoming episodes ahead.
