Such a talented cutie!

mackenzie mauzy’s acting really improved when phoebe was killed off. Nope to anything w/ emily blunt after her new film w/c is called “edge of tomorrow” and is being promoted by her and tom cruise at nerdy convention. They changed title from “all you need is kill” w/c is a storyline abt a japanese soldier. But of course tolerant hollywood casts tom cruise to portray a Japanese soldier. Yet another whitewashing movie from racist hollywood w/c bashes Asian americans. Racist hollywood won’t cast a Japanese american actor who’s unknown for a Japanese char. Yet hollywood casts unknown mackenzie mauzy bec her race is not a hindrance to her getting cast.

Flop depp makes this movie even worse. His soap opera remake “dark shadows” flopped. But his film “lone ranger” was disney’s worst flop and it was really racist to Native americans. depp doesn’t even know his tribe and says he is 1/16th native american. Would hollywood have cast an unknown actress who is 1/16th white to portray rapunzel? Of course not. But hollywood won’t cast Native american actors to portray tonto despite the lack of roles for Native american actors. Such tolerance.

Michael, can we request for people to be susoended from posting please. It’s becoming offensive reading someone group everyone in Hollywood entertainment as racist on every other post dispite the topic being something that has absolutely NOTHING to do with race!
I understand people defending causes they care about…or issues that are important to them, but bc’s post are really starting to cross the line and frankly take away the fun of reading comments for fear being constantly offended!
Can ANYTHING PLEEEEASE be done.

“Starting”? Line has been crossed.

I agree that offensive posts should not be allowed. It does detract from the reading.

Still miss her on B&B. I think she’s a great addition to the movie. Don’t know the story, but I know she’ll be great.

She was so good on B & B.
I miss her too : ((((
I am happy for her though, getting the role of Rapunzel!!! : )))

Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Tells ‘The Talk’ That Steffy “Needs Finn to Man Up” While On B&B, Finn Tells Steffy “I Think I Just Need Some More Time”

On Monday’s March 4th episode of CBS daytime’s The Talk, one of the featured guests was The Bold and the Beautiful’s three-time Daytime Emmy winner, Jacquline MacInnes Wood.

During her guest appearance, Wood spoke with The Talk co-hosts Amanda Kloots and Sheryl Underwood, who both have previously appeared on B&B. In fact, Kloots guest stint just aired last week.

When the conversation turned to recent storyline developments where Steffy stabbed Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) to her eventual death, and how Steffy’s husband Finn (Tanner Novlan) is coping with the situation, Jacqui shared her reaction, “I was in complete shock…but like Steffy, I mean, ding-dong the witch is dead.  This is what needed to happen. They’ve been going toe to toe for so long and I think that it’s cool to know that Steffy went up against one of the best villains.”

However, Woods weighed-in on Finn’s odd behavior grieving his birth mother, who tried to kill him and his wife. Jacqui stated, “Steffy needs Finn to man up, she needs her man to stand up for what is going on, because it’s absolutely crazy. Sheila terrorized their family for so long… and Steffy honestly doesn’t want to have to murder Finn too.”

Meanwhile, on Monday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, after being comforted by Hope (Annika Noelle) and talking out his feelings towards Sheila’s death (and how he currently feels about his wife, Steffy), he eventually heads back to the cliff house. It appears he is going to be there for his wife and their family, only he starts to get a case of the heebie jeebies when Steffy tries to kiss him. Finn further freaks out when he looks around and see the blood-stained carpet with his mother’s blood soaked into it.

Finn can’t handle being in the house with Steffy where his mom was killed and runs out, leaving Steffy panicked and shocked over all that has just happened to her.

Check out Wood’s appearance on The Talk below. 

Then let us know, should Finn man up and get a grip and come back home to Steffy, Hayes and Kelly? Or, should he go it alone and come to terms with his feelings with or without the comfort of Hope? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

We knew we had something special when we saw the very first cut of the series and the overwhelming audience response confirms it. We couldn’t be more grateful to Justin, the talented cast, the incredible writing and producing teams and our partners at 20th Television for such compelling episodes. And, of course, we’re also so thankful to the millions of viewers tuning in each week.”

The series stars Justin Hartley as Colter Shaw, a lone-wolf survivalist who roams the country as a reward seeker, using his expert tracking skills to help private citizens and law enforcement solve all manner of mysteries while contending with his own fractured family.

Steve Burton Confirms ‘General Hospital’ Head Writer Switch Changed Jason’s Comeback Storyline

General Hospital viewers will see today, Monday, March 4th, the beginnings of the return storyline for Steve Burton and his character of Jason Morgan.

Just how did the recent head writing regime change at GH alter the plans for story for Jason’s comeback? As had been rumored, seems plenty. Back on January 22nd, it was revealed that Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor had been replaced by Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte. At that time, Burton had already signed-on to return to the daytime drama for the first time since being let go towards the end of 2021.

Speaking with Soap Opera Digest, Steve confirmed that what we will see on-air is from the new head writers and that the direction of the story changed, “So apparently there was a whole different story planned and then the head writer switch happened and then they kind of rebooted (the story arc). I know Patrick (Mulcahey, one of the new head writers) a little bit, but I really know Elizabeth Korte (who was promoted to co-head writer).”

Burton added, “There’s no one in the building that loves that show, knows the history of the character, and is invested in it 100 percent than Elizabeth. There has never been a more deserved promotion, ever. Once I know that she was (one of the head writers), I was like, ‘Oh, this is gonna be good! I cannot wait.’ And it has been exactly that. Everything has been amazing.”‘

In addition, during an Instagram live on Monday with his podcast and comedy show partner, GH star, Bradford Anderson (Spinelli), Burton also commented on the upcoming story arc which brings Jason back to Port Charles. Steve expressed, “The story is not going to disappoint. The scenes are super deep. Frank (Valentini, EP, GH)  and the new head writers took some time to really think this out.”

Burton, being a longtime veteran of the soaps, said Jason’s return is not just isolated to be about him. “Great story on daytime should involve a myriad of people across the board and where it effects everybody,” he shared. The popular fan favorite feels that this story delivers on all levels.

So, what do you think about the head writer change and how it prompted the plans for Jason’s return? Comment below.
