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.

I hope he can act.

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DWTS Host, Tom Bergeron Not Happy With “Divisive” Casting Choices Aimed At Sean Spicer

Controversy already erupted upon the announcement on Wednesday of the cast of the new season of Dancing with the Stars.  Most intriguing is that a statement from the longtime ABC series, host, Tom Bergeron revealed his hopes to the producers that their celebrity casting choices would be non-political in nature, especially after the ballroom dance competition had been on a year hiatus from the small screens.

Following the celebrity contestant reveal, which included former White House Press Secretary. Sean Spicer (who worked for President Donald Trump), the host released a statement via his Twitter account.  In it, Bergeron noted that he’d had lunch with the show’s new executive producer and had suggested some ideas for the show. Chief among them was that DWTS should avoid casting someone with “ANY party affiliations.”  When he left that lunch, Bergeron says he was convinced that would be the case.

Bergeron expressed: “It was my hope that ‘DWTS,’ in its return from an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations.”  Then he said, “Subsequently (and rather obviously) a decision was made to, as they often say in Hollywood, “go in a different direction”.  He went on to say, “It is the prerogative of producers, in partnership with the network, to make whatever decisions they feel are in the best long term interests of the franchise. We can agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it’s their call. I’ll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions.”

So, what do you think of Bergeron’s hopes for the casting choices of DTWS?  Would you have preferred Sean Spicer to be cut from the cast?  Who would you have liked to have seen cast on the series? Would you want any celeb you like to even go on it any more? Comment below.
