Spicing things up in an upcoming remote shoot in Monte Carlo on The Bold and the Beautiful will be none other than Gilles Marini!

According to ET Online: “Marini will play a doctor who has to unexpectedly treat one of the characters in Monaco. In the storyline, some of the characters travel to Monte Carlo for the Annual Spencer Summit. The trip will also feature a swimwear fashion show challenge pitting the Spectra and Forrester fashion houses against each other.”

The Dancing With the Stars alum will appear in two episodes, beginning Friday, July 28.  This will actually mark Marini’s third appearance over the years on B&B having previously appeared in cameos in 2005 and 2007 as different characters.

So intrigued by Marini coming back to B&B for a guest star appearance? Who will Gilles’ give medical attention to in his new role on the show? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

It’s got to be between either Sally and Princess Stephanie
My money is The Princess she going to break a body part either arm or leg by tripping on something with her god awful heels


Princess Stephanie, hahahahahah. You got that right. STOP THE INSANITY!


Marking calendar to watch..


These cameos are not very exciting. The appearances do not match the hype.

I would think Marini would be a welcome addition to any daytime drama in a meaningful role, even if short lived.


Wow!!!! I love B&B and now Gilles! From “Sex and the City” to “Brothers and Sisters” to “Dancing With The Stars” and more…he is one of THE most gorgeous actors to hit the screen. And he can act/dance too!

Sooooo looking forward to whatever he plays on the show! Great news! A bientot, Gilles!


Great points, Rebecca1! I enjoyed his work on “Brothers and Sisters.” ABC was wrong to cancel that show, as I believe every time-slot replacement since has not improved on the numbers. But that was a great show. I have been a dutiful viewer of “The Americans,” following “Brothers and Sisters” star Matthew Rhys. “The Americans” is now a critical darling. And to come full circle, Gilles Marini will always be considered a “darling!”


Hi Jamesj75…thanks!

Gilles is beyond swoon-worthy; seems like a nice guy, too. Not, of course, that you ever really know unless you know someone personally…but he comes off very down-to-earth and warm.

Yes! Loved “Brothers & Sisters!” I was shocked to find out Matthew Rhys was British! So many British actors nail the American accent: Matthew, Damien Lewis, Rupert Friend, Jude Law, Sam Palladio (British)and Clare Bowen both (Australian) both from the show “Nashville.” The list goes on…

Never saw “The Americans.” Now I’ll have to look for it! Thanks!


Hey again, Rebecca! You’re right about Marini seeming like a nice guy. Down-to-earth celebrities are most admirable. It’s also interesting, as you point out, how British actors can sound American. I was initially surprised to hear the Rhys is a Brit.

Set in the 1980s, “The Americans” (on FX) has more relevance today, given its subject matter of Russian spies. It can be violent and stark, but it’s a great show, with terrific acting, writing, and complex, conflicted characters. It just went on hiatus and will return in, I believe, March 2018.

Best to you and your loved ones, Rebecca!


I’ll look for the show…by the way…have you watched “Homeland?” Oh my gawd…I’d always heard of it but never checked it out. Season 1 was way back in 2011 I believe. Well, I just binged all six episodes in about a month! Absolutely fantastic…Mandy Patinkin, Clare Danes, Damian Lewis, Rupert Friend, F. Murray Abraham. It’s also quite violent and like many violent shows I watch I’ve picked up the knack of swirling my head just in the knick of time. I do believe I have whiplash from turning away so often! HAHAHHA…but, some of these shows, nonetheless…are just so riviting!

Best to you and yours, too, james…see ya on the next post! 😉


LOL…correction…six seasons, not episodes.


PS: I’ve heard great things about “Homeland” but haven’t seen it. Take care, Rebecca!

Let him hang around, Stephanie and Liam are boring. Let her sneak around and hook up with him for a while… that will shake things up for a while. Liam is usually the one with 2 women fighting over him….don’t know why??


looking forward to his appearances.

He would be a welcomed edition to any show. So handsome, hope he can create a little havoc.


Well…Gilles was on for a minute…and gone. Another hyped guest in a story arc that was over in the blink of an eye. He should have at least been at the after party and shown his dance moves! Missed opportunity B&B!

Big Brother

Julie Chen Says Goodbye To THE TALK Via Video Message

As anticipated on Tuesday, Julie Chen officially and publicly exited The Talk.  Through a videotaped message to her co-hosts, viewers and staff and behind the scene personnel, Chen wrapped-up her run.

While Chen has bowed out of The Talk following her husband Les Moonves’ removal from CBS following allegations of sexual misconduct, she will continue on through the end of this season as the host of the reality-competition series, Big Brother.

On The Talk, Eve tossed to Chen’s videotaped exit message which the ladies of the panel also saw for the first time during the live broadcast:

Here is what Julie shared: “I have been at THE TALK since the day it started 9 years ago, and the cast, crew and staff have become family to me over the years. But right now, I need to spend more time at home with my husband and our young son, so I’ve decided to leave THE TALK. I want to thank everyone at the show for the wonderful years together. I will always, always cherish the memories we shared. Most important, I want to thank you, the viewers, for allowing me into your home every day. It was a privilege that I will forever be grateful for. To everyone behind the scenes, I send you my love. I will miss you all very, very much. To Eve: you’re the newest one at the table, but I feel like I’ve known you forever. You are even more beautiful inside than you are on the outside, if that’s even possible, because, you know I think you are flawless. Sheryl, thank you for being the perfect go-to partner for the last 7 years. I open, you close, and you always bring down the house. We called ourselves “The Book Ends,” remember? And we always laughed when we said it to each other. Your wit, and timing, and humor, and compassion, and intelligence is simply unparalleled. You are incredible. Carrie Ann (Inaba), I don’t know, but in my opinion, you look awful good sitting in that chair, my Asian sister. I’m just saying! And finally, to Sara and Sharon: we’ve been together since day one at THE TALK! I’ve spent every day with you both. I will always treasure our friendship, the great parenting advice from both of you, and the memories and laughs and all the private jokes that the three of us have shared. We are the original three musketeers. I love you all, and I know this show, and the sisterhood it stands for, will live on for many, many, many more years to come. You ladies got this, and I could not be more proud to call you my friends. I love you.”

Following the video, Sara Gilbert, creator and co-host of The Talk  thanked Chen for being a major part of the series ongoing success, as Sheryl Underwood looked on in tears.

70th Primetime Emmys: Game Of Thrones, Assassination Of Gianni Versace, ‘Mrs. Maisel’, Henry Winkler Are Night’s Big Winners

Last night in Los Angeles, the 70th Primetime Emmys were handed out.  The event featured several surprise winners, but without little drama throughout its 3-hour telecast that was hosted by Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost and Michael Che.

The awards kicked-off though finally honoring Henry Winkler, winning his first ever Primetime Emmy for his performance as Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for HBO’s Barry.

Winkler had previously won two Daytime Emmys.  First in 1995 for the Outstanding Children’s Special, CBS Schoolbreak special, All The Kids Do It, and in 2005 winning as Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program for Clifford’s Puppy Days.

The former Fonz of Happy Days reacted on stage to his first primetime award victory exclaiming: “Oh, my god. Oh, my god. Oh, my god!

As the audience gave him a standing ovation Winkler added: “I wrote this 43 years ago.  Skip Brittenham (entertainment lawyer) said to me a long time ago: ‘If you stay at the table long enough, the chips come to you.’ And tonight, I got to clear the table.”

In another memorable moment, Glenn Weiss, who won for Outstanding Direction of a Special for “The Oscars” took his turn at the podium by honoring his late mother (she died two weeks ago) by proposing to his longtime girlfriend Jan Svendsen, on live television.

As Jan sat in the audience, Weiss began during his acceptance speech: “Jan, you are the sunshine in my life. And mom was right, don’t ever let go of your sunshine. You wonder why I don’t like to call you my girlfriend? Because I want to call you my wife.”  With that, walking to the stage with the roar of the crowd behind her was Svendsen as Weiss continued and pulled out a ring! “This is the ring that my dad put on my mom’s finger 67 years ago. And to my sisters and brothers, I didn’t swipe it. Dad knows I have it, O.K.?”   Jan said, “yes”, and the Emmy audience was thrilled.

As to the night’s big winners; check out the winner’s list below to see how your favorite nominated actors and programs fared!

Julie Chen To Step Down From ‘The Talk’

As of Monday night, the only hosting gig that Julie Chen has resumed since her husband, Les Moonves was ousted as CBS Chairman is Big Brother on CBS.

Chen had yet to return to her seat at the table as the anchor of the Daytime Emmy Award-winning series, The Talk.

Moonves has been accused of sexual misconduct with new allegations surfacing in the New Yorker as recent as just the other week.

Tonight, Page Six is reporting that Julie is walking away from The Talk and will resign.

CNN is also reporting that Chen has made the decision and it is effective immediately and that she will address her decision through a videotaped message to viewers on Tuesday’s episode of The Talk

The competition in the daytime talk space, the ladies of The View, voiced that they think there is no way for Chen to return to the panel of The Talk, especially since the CBS series addresses the hot social topics of the day and the #MeToo movement which is so much of our culture these days,

The only statement Chen has made on the new allegations against Moonves, is that she is standing by him when she signed off on a recent episode of Big Brother saying:  “I’m Julie Chen Moonves. Good Night.”

So, do you think Julie stepping down from The Talk is the right choice?  Is she in no-win situation? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
