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.

Where is 4everDays who used to mention Chaz when soaps were casting characters in the past…lol…now he is on B&B…interesting-ill have to tune in.

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.

In intriguing casting news, Australian-born actor, Lincoln Younes (Ex-Home and Away and most recently ABC’s Grand Hotel, where he played Danny) has landed one of the leading roles in CW’s reboot and upcoming pilot of The Lost Boys based on the 1987 movie.

Joining Younes in the other lead roles in the pilot will be Braeden Cook (Industry) and Ruby Cruz (Castle Rock).

According to Deadline the series is said to be about the following: “When a mother and her Gen Z sons, one played by Cook, move to the seaside town where she grew up, they discover there’s a sinister reason the local cool kids sleep all day, party all night, never grow up and never get old. Family bonds are tested as the brothers find themselves on opposite sides of a mythological struggle. Based on the 1987 cult classic that revolutionized how we think about vampires.”

In The Lost Boys reboot, Younes plays Benjamin, the charismatic leader of the gang of vampires in the town. It is a version of the David character played in the movie by Kiefer Sutherland.

The pilot is written by Heather Mitchell and Rob Thomas and will be directed by Marcos Siega.

They shared: “Our mother was a loving and supportive wife, mother and grandmother.  Gracious and kind, she enriched the lives of all who knew her. We will miss her tremendously.”

Born in Chicago, Illinois on June 9, 1928, Bell was co-creator, along with her late husband William J. Bell, of two of daytime television’s most successful dramas: The Young and the Restless (Y&R), and The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B).

Bell’s career as a broadcast journalist began in Chicago, where she hosted and produced her own show, The Lee Phillip Show, for CBS TV for over 30 years. A pioneer in the evolution of the afternoon talk show format, Bell was a trailblazer in the exploration of timely social issues and concerns.  Additionally she produced and narrated numerous award-winning specials and documentaries covering social concerns such as foster children, the subject of rape, children and divorce, and babies born to women in prison, to name a few.. Bell interviewed heads of state such as Presidents Gerald Ford and Ronald Regan; film actors Judy Garland, Clint Eastwood and Jerry Lewis; musicians such as The Rolling Stones and The Beatles; television and stage stars such as Lucille Ball, Jack Benny and Oprah Winfrey; and many other politicians, authors, journalists, fashion designers and rock stars.

She was awarded 16 regional (Chicago) Emmy awards and numerous Golden Mike awards. Bell is also the recipient of the Alfred I. Dupont/Columbia University Award for the special The Rape of Paulette, the first program in Chicago to explore the issue.  In 1977, she was the first woman to receive the coveted Governors Award from the Chicago chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.  In 1980, she was named “Person of the Year” by the Broadcast Advertising Club of Chicago and the “Outstanding Woman in Communications” by the Chicago YMCA.  She also received the Salvation Army’s William Booth Award for her distinguished career in communications and social service. Bell won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series as co-creator of The Young and the Restless in 1975 and was recipient of the Daytime Emmys’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007.
