I don’t think you’ll get your wish, su0000.

Chaz will most likely stay with CBS. CBS is well known for it’s crossovers. Chaz will probably turn up at Y&R and The Talk. Chaz could even become a co-host of The Talk. I don’t think being transgender precludes Chaz from that position, plus, I don’t think Chaz’ transition is complete which means Chaz has the same genitalia as the other co-hosts unless Sarah Gibert has a secret we don’t know about.

And What would Sara Gilbert have anything to do with Chaz? Sara Gilbert is not in a relationship with Chaz Bono. Sara is married to Linda Perry

Sara Gilbert is gay not transgender. Sara Gilbert has had a couple children. She is married to Linda Perry who is also gay, but neither one of them is trans.

B&B is turning into a freak-show with Chaz Bono, Bruce Jenner and turning Maya into one. With all the stunt casting lately B&B is picking up where MAB’s Y&R left off.

Trans people are not freaks, have some respect.

Here we go again! @Blake show some respect please!! And who she is Caitlyn not Bruce ! NO ONE is forcing you to watch something. If you are that uncomfortable watching something WE ARE ALL more than happy to have you stop watching a show than call it a “Freak – show” .

Amen!! I couldn’t agree more.

I agree Blake, and if anyone doesn’t like my opinion too bad. I don’t like it either when people who mutilate their bodies to be someone they weren’t created to be turn up on a soap I love. Maya was destroyed because Brad Bell wanted to high-five the LGBT community. Destroyed! He took a beautiful, independent, outspoken woman who brought herself from being homeless to a fashion model, and killed her to impress freaks. Maya had a daughter. One that I remember her saying she was pregnant with, but because Maya is now a man, we are suppose to pretend that daughter was never hers. Instead of Raya fans enjoying a beautiful love story, wedding and her carrying she and Rick’s baby, we got Rick embracing marriage to a man, his SIL having to carry his baby, and all the sick, disturbing feelings that go along with watching that play out. Chastity coming on to play a minister is a joke. Bell is so sick in the mind, I see fans all over social media sites daily talking about giving up viewing this show if the freaky behavior of those characters do not end.

Yo, Jimmy! We posted several hours apart, but showed up on the board at the same time. A few posters lashed out at me for making such suggestions you’re referring to. I guess they may have “changed” their minds.

Its so funny now and kind of ironic, isnt it…you would mention Chaz and how they lashed out…and now here he is.

I get the sense Chaz is a beautiful person inside and out. It would be great if DWTS had another all-star season and Chaz competed again after his weight loss.

Nikki

Although I didn’t care for the story-line with Maya & Rick I am glad Chaz is coming on. I have always liked him. He is such a gentle and kind guy it would be hard to find a problem with him. Welcome Chaz to B&B.

Who cares Chasity slash Chaz, the acting will be terrible. I would rather watch the Talk, Dr Phil and The Chew. Cancel all the soaps, replace them with cooking shows and more talk shows.

Nikki

What a miserable person you are. If you hate all soaps, turn them off. Watch your talk & cooking shows. Nobody is stopping you but I guess misery does like company. I can’t help but wonder why your even on the soap comment board, since you hate them all so much. I am glad you watch Dr. Phil.

Uh, Emma…here’s an idea: Why don’t you go and host a cooking show and/or talk show of your own…and S-T-O-P being so hateful?!?!?!?!?! Just saying……….

Oh, and Nikki…LOVE YOU!!!!! P-e-a-c-e.

Yet another inane and worthless (did I mention ignorant) response from this so-called “Emma” who is obviously deranged ~
Whoever monitors this page, can’t you please block this moron from posting her or his hateful comments that are obviously stated only to upset the viewers who enjoy the existing soaps?

Brett

I hope this is relevant to story and isn’t just a stunt casting to take away attention from the poor state the show is in.

I know what you mean, Brett. The internet is loaded with posters stating B&B isn’t exciting, but it’s transparent that all these transgender visits are a statement that B&B is transitioning.

Jussie Smollett Cut From Rest Of Season Of EMPIRE; Tells Cast He’s Innocent Of Charges

Following the turn of events for Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) where he was arrested and charged on multiple felony counts and then posted bail, the producers of Fox’s sudsy primetime drama have decided to pull him from the remaining two episodes of the season.

“The events of the past few weeks have been incredibly emotional for all of us,” executive producers Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, Brett Mahoney, Brian Grazer, Sanaa Hamri, Francie Calfo, and Dennis Hammer said in a statement this morning following the legal fallout for Jussie Smollett and his arrest stemming from an alleged hate crime reported on January 29th that he staged on himself.

The producers went on to say: “Jussie has been an important member of our Empire family for the past five years and we care about him deeply. While these allegations are very disturbing, we are placing our trust in the legal system as the process plays out. We are also aware of the effects of this process on the cast and crew members who work on our show and to avoid further disruption on set, we have decided to remove the role of ‘Jamal’ from the final two episodes of the season.”

This happened even after Smollett returned to work on Thursday, and even after the actor/singer reportedly apologized to the cast and crew of Empire for any embarrassment the recent allegations may have caused, but at the same time, sources reported, that he maintained that he was innocent,

According to CNN: “The person at the meeting said they were shocked and dismayed that Smollett stuck to his story of innocence. For the most part, the source said, Smollett paraphrased what was in the statement that his attorney put out that afternoon, blaming the legal system and the media for his woes.”

So, what do you think of the Empire producers decision to cut Smollett from the last two shows of the season? What do you think of Jussie still maintaining his innocence to the cast? Comment below.

‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Turns Himself In After Being Charged With Allegedly Filing False Police Report & Facing Criminal Charges

In major developments in the last several hours, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) turned himself in to Chicago police early Thursday morning, just hours after he was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself late in January on the streets in Chicago.

In a press conference currently being conducted by the CPD supervisor, Eddie Johnson and Commander Edward Wodnick, they revealed that Smollett turned himself in quietly and without issue.   In addition, the Chicago PD are outlining the events and timeline that led to Smollett’s arrest.

Smollett turned himself in at the Central District police station in Chicago at 5 a.m., police reported.  Thursday morning, Smollett was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing Thursday at 1:30pm central time on a felony charge of a class 4 disorderly conduct, and with that charge Smollett could face up to 1.5 years in prison.

Jussie’s attorney’s released the following statement on Wednesday night after Smollett was charged by the Chicago PD: “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Smollett reported that he has been attacked as he was walking home around.  He claimed two masked men shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a chemical on to him.

Enter two brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo, who Smollett knew, who were arrested last week, but later released as suspects. The two brothers told police they helped stage the attack with Smollett.  They were paid $3,500 to orchestrate the attack by Smollett.  In their press conference, the Chicago PD revealed that they have the check as evidence were Smollett paid the brothers that sum.

The brothers left for Nigeria hours after the attack, and were arrested days later when they returned to Chicago.   On Wednesday, they testified to a grand jury. Smollett was later charged with disorderly conduct.

Well, well, well! Look who is back on set at The Young and the Restless!  Thad Luckinbill, who is presumed dead as J.T. Hellstrom, was seen walking around the sound stages at CBS Television City on Wednesday.

Could Thad just be back to appear as a ghost?  Will he come back alive and continue his abusive ways towards Victoria?
