Make sure to tune in to tomorrow’s , December 22nd episode of The Bold and the Beautiful! That is when you will see Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery) purchase the show’s hipster hangout Insomnia Café and then, on Christmas Day, she’ll hand the keys over to Dayzee (Kristolyn Lloyd)!

According to this interview from TV Guide, “The place will be renamed Dayzee’s. What’s more, two real-life residents of L.A.’s Union Rescue Mission shelter, Anthony Ortega and Leilani Zachary, have joined the B&B cast and will be seen in recurring roles as employees at the restaurant. An additional 18 people from the shelter — including seven children — were hired to play homeless guests for Dayzee’s Christmas dinner. The kid “actors” all opened presents on-camera.”

B&B Producer, Ed Scott spoke with TVG and offered up his thoughts on the CBS soap continuing to tell the plight of the homeless in Los Angeles, and what it has meant to the show.   Here are some excerpts below!

Ed Scott on having the homeless to the CBS set for the Christmas taping: “It was so much fun inviting them into our world and they had a ball. [Laughs] One child opened the wrong gift and started crying, so it was just like a real Christmas. The kids loved their presents and they were so quiet playing with them — they were perfect on camera! I have to say that [B&B executive producer-head writer] Brad Bell is just a chip off the old block. [Brad’s father, the late Bill Bell, and his mother, Lee Phillip Bell, created both B&B and The Young and the Restless.] I think his dad would be very proud. I know his mother is. Lee came down to Skid Row with us on one of the days we shot there — the day the temperature in L.A. hit an all-time high of 113 degrees. I told Lee, “I always said I’d willingly follow your son into hell. Well, I just did.” But I didn’t care. Nobody did. We were so f–king happy to be there telling this story that we didn’t know the thermometer broke.”

Ed Scott on B&B’s commitment to continue telling the homeless story: “Dayzee’s restaurant will be dedicated to helping homeless people earn a living and get their lives back on track. We’ll be hiring more homeless as the show moves along. Everyone at B&B is looking at life through a new pair of glasses these days. Before we shot those episodes with Susan Flannery talking with the people at the Union Rescue Mission, we all went down to that Skid Row area and immersed ourselves. We met some really wonderful people, many of them homeless, while others are living and working down there to help the homeless. We met families just like yours and mine. They are people who want to climb out of a bad situation, get their education and put in the work to make their lives better. There’s a perception that they are hopeless. Nope, just homeless. When you walk around Skid Row, you see faces that remind you of some of those famous photographs taken during the Great Depression by Dorothea Lange. I saw one woman sitting there looking pretty down and out but she was wearing a T-shirt that said “Tough Times Don’t Last But Tough People Do.” It changes your life.”

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

General Hospital

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
