Now here’s a hosting switch, and it actually makes more sense than some might think which comes on the heels of longtime ‘Bachelor’ franchise staple, Chris Harrison, still being sidelined after his controversial and insensitive remarks during last season.

With the summer Bachelor in Paradise season is set to air on ABC, the plan is to have rotating guest hosts.  One of which is comedian David Spade who closed his deal, while other celeb offers are still out.  All this, according to a report in Variety.

Spade is a huge “Bachelor” franchise fan and has provided hilarious commentary on social media in the past, and it appears the producers want to inject some humor into the upcoming series, amid all the heavy controversy that has fallen on to the franchise in 2020 and 2021.

The cast of contestants has yet to be revealed but Bachelor in Paradise will return on Monday, August 16, at 8 p.m. ET.

As to what other guest hosts may be in the season, stay tuned.  The show has made it clear that for Bachelor in Paradise it will not use former contestants as guest hosts as it has for The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.

Meanwhile, the overall fate of Chris Harrison with the franchise is still apparently in limbo.

So, what do you think of David Spade guest co-hosting Bachelor in Paradise? Comment below.

While not a fan on Spade, the rotating guest host concept might just be something this show needs. Please let Kimmel be one!

B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang and Ashley Jones Reveal They Want Brooke & Bridget To Deal with Their Shared Past with Deacon

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) of The Bold and the Beautiful was last Friday’s guest on BOLD Live, and during her interview with B&B supervising producer and host, Casey Kasprzyk, none other than Ashley Jones (Bridget) made a surprise appearance.

Once Jones arrived on the livestream (late in the episode), the discussion turned to wishing that Brooke and Bridget would get the opportunity to deal with the fallout from years ago between mother and daughter.

If fans recall, Bridget was married to Deacon (Sean Kanan), and then he had an affair with Brooke, and then Brooke became pregnant with Hope.

On BOLD Live, Lang said, “There is so much good story there.”  She then added, “I honestly feel Brooke and Bridget never dealt with that. It’s honestly something that was pushed down.”

Ashley shared on the current state of B&B’s episodes: “This is the juiciest the shows been in a long time.”  And on Brooke/Deacon/Bridget, Ashley concurred with Kelly: “Oh. 100% … they never dealt with it.”

Watch BOLD Live with Katherine Kelly Lang and special guest Ashley Jones below.

Then let us know, would you like to see Bridget return and in-turn bring with her some meaty scenes between mother and daughter, especially given Brooke’s temptation with the bottle again? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
