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!

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.

Who would’ve thought?! This morning I sit in the same exact spot knowing that today, my last episode will air as this beloved character. I reflect, and am grateful. I am better for having been a part of it all. Knowing I’ve laid her in a pair of loving and capable hands does me good. Thanks for the sweet ride, Abby. My heart is full today. Xx #Days #Milly#Chabby”

According to EW.com, Yvonne will end up having a connection to someone or someones on the canvas.

Hubert’s first episode is slated to air on December 7th.   Sitcom fans remember Janet from “Fresh Prince’ in scenes with Will Smith in the series in the role of Vivian Banks.

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.
