Perfect timing for Kristin to come back to Salem and add to Brady’s harem who are fighting for him. I expect Nicole back soon too. 4lovely schemers to add more chaos to Salem.

Please write her out as a kidnapping, so she can have a chance for a return. Or make her richer than Victor so she can be the boss over the mustache.

Ashley Abbott , she is a nasty piece of work.
She’s the one taking down Newman Enterprise and she will exit by going to prison.
You heard it here first, folks
Ashley Abbott is the culprit behind the destruction of NE, wait for it.

I don’t believe this, I think JT is alive. Heck, maybe Victor is doing it to clean house.

Not sure about that one, SUOO. But I was thinking (and hoping) that Ashely geared up the whole Jack paternity story. Ashely was deeply emotionally scarred upon finding out that she’s not the biological daughter of John Abbott. She deeply resented Jack for being the CEO of Jabot Cosmetics and never forgave him for the blood Abbot clause. I think she took advantage of her mother’s ramblings and tampered with both the DNA test results to get back at Jack and to possibly take over Jabot cosmetics after Billy does away with the blood Abbott clause. This would not be the first time Ashely tampered with DNA results. Billy thwarted her plans by actually digging his new role as the Jabot CEO and now she’s banking on his propensity to self sabotage. When the truth comes out Ashely will be sent back to the loony bin and Jack will be sent back to his rightful seat as the Jabot CEO. This is what I HOPE will turn out anyway because I hate that they have also taken Jack away from John. First they kill of John Abbott, then they make Ashely illegitimate and now they are tying to do the same to Jack. The Abbotts are now on the endangered species list. Moreover, I hate that they have Jack acting like a silly lost boy looking for his daddy at the tender age of sixty-four.

Going to miss her. I have been a fan since she started on Y&R. I hope this doesn’t mean the end of the Abbott family. Jack is already claiming the Chancellor name and Tracy is hardly there. I noticed lately that Eileen’s screen time has diminished in the past few weeks. A sign of things to come, I guess?

This is sad news. I’ve always thought Davidson and Ashley Abbott were huge assets to the show. Davidson will always be my favorite actress to play Ashley. However, with her choosing to leave, I would hate to see Ashley go as well. Jack is never as compelling a character without Ashley around. I would welcome the return of Brenda Epperson to the part. Epperson did a great job in a tough situation — taking over as Ashley went Epperson quit in the late 80s.

If she’s leaving Y&R, then shouldn’t she be going to Salem…. instead of some random recast?

Lord…..that is such an old, made-up, out of left field rumor. If it were true, more power to her because she is one of the most in demand actresses of daytime!

What a nasty, uncalled for comment.

Eileen is one of the most beautiful and talented women in daytime or primetime.

Guess I’ll be tuning out of Y & R. Eileen is the only reason I watch the show. TPTB have not given her a substantial storyline in ages. Yes, she is a part of The Abbott family and their storyline(s), Dina’s storyline, and Jabot; but, she hasn’t had a love interest in YEARS. & I didn’t care for the “Graham” storyline.

While I’ll miss seeing Eileen on Y&R, I am in complete support of her leaving a show that only rarely gives her decent material. It’s been 4 years of arcs that never really get off the ground, so it’s time for a change. I don’t know how Ashley will leave, but I wish Eileen the best of luck in the future.

Yeah, Eileen jumped the shark when you cheapened herself by doing the Housewives show. Regardless, she has not been featured on Y&R in years so the loss doesnt shake me.

I hope they recast her. If they can recast Billy and Adam they can recast Ashley.

‘The Bachelor’ New Key Art Revealed Playing Up Colton Underwood’s Virginity

The upcoming season of The Bachelor does not roll out till January, when season 23 gets underway on the 7th of that month, but ABC today released its key art first poster for promotion of their latest ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood.

Chris Harrison host and EP of the series, posted via Instagram: “It’s now officially official and I have the official exclusive poster to prove it. Colton’s dramatic season of #TheBachelor premieres Mon Jan 7th.”

The poster has the slogan: “What does he have to lose?” and one would assume its a nod to Colton’s noted and much discussed virginity.

Courtesy/ABC

Viewers first met Colton in Becca Kufrin’s season 14 of The Bachelorette, where he came in as fourth runner-up.  He continued on the franchise on Bachelor In Paradise, and his controversial on and off again relationship with Tia Booth, Becca’s friend.

Just how will Colton handle kissing a bevy of ladies, the fantasy suites, and more?  Guess we will find out,and if his season will be a doozy compared to the lackluster season of Arie Luyendk Jr., until Arie dumped his choice for love Becca and went back on his word and fell back in love with the runner-up  – his now fiancee and expectant mother of his chid, Lauren Burnham.

So, what do you think of the poster art for the new season of The Bachelor? Will you be checking out Colton during his effort to find true love? Comment below.

Robin Givens Tapped As Lead For OWN’s New Soapy Family Drama, ‘Ambitions’

There is a new soap in town from creator/executive producer Jamey Giddens from an idea by executive producer Will Packer, and they have found their leading lady for the ensemble cast. 

Robin Givens (last seen in the soaps on B&B and CW’s Riverdale) has been tapped to play the role of Stephanie Carlisle in Ambitions set to premiere on OWN in 2019. 

Stephanie is the wife of Atlanta Mayor Evan Lancaster (Brian White), whose true loyalty is to her own family’s prestigious law firm, where she is the latest in a long line of distinguished lawyers. Stephanie desperately wants to be in charge of the Carlisle family law firm and quietly fumes about her father Stephen’s condescending assertion that she’s simply not ready yet.

The series is billed as a multigenerational family saga centered around one woman who, having recently relocated and intent on revitalizing her marriage, finds herself going head to head with some of the most powerful and deceitful players in the city.

According to Deadline, rounding out the series regular cast are Essence Atkins (Marlon, Half and Half), Brian White (Ray Donovan, Scandal), Kendrick Cross (Acrimony), Brely Evans (Being Mary Jane) and Erica Page (Ozark, Bad Dad Rehab).

The show is currently in production in Atlanta, Georgia.

So, excited to see Ambitions when it makes its debut? What do you think about Robin Givens joining the series? Comment below.

Karla Mosley Back To Work At B&B; Hunter Tylo On The Way Too?

Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful this week got some fun intel from two sources, the actresses themselves! First, Karla Mosley has returned to taping all-new episodes of the CBS daytime drama series, following her maternity leave.

That means Maya Avant will be back in action.. In an Instagram post holding a script from the series, she noted, “Back to work!!!! Having all the feels.”

Mosley gave birth in August to her daughter, Aurora Imani.   Maya was last seen on the canvas in that month as well.  No word yet if Maya’s return will also bring with it Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) who went on recurring status with the show and is off doing other projects.

In other news, looks like fan favorite Hunter Tylo (Taylor) may be back on Bold, in time for the holidays, if her tweets are any indication of that.  Having a twitter exchange with fans of the series, one who seemed disgruntled again, Tylo posted this!

This would indicate Tylo is on her way back for holiday episodes and maybe more of the soap as Taylor!  She also tweeted on the Bill, Ridge, Katie custody drama and shenanigans, “Think I need to go to go straighten these people out?”.  The thread on Hunter’s twitter page continued with a “Stay Tuned” GIF and more.

So, excited to see Maya and Taylor back on the canvas at The Bold and the Beautiful? What would you like to see happen for the characters in story? Comment below.
