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.

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!… Read more »

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??

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!

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Former ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood Comes Out as Gay

This morning on the highly-promoted sit-down interview with GMA’s Robin Roberts, former ‘Bachelor’ lead Colton Underwood, revealed that he was gay and that he has finally come to terms with it.

The ex-football star shared: “Obviously this year’s been a lot for a lot of people, and it’s probably made a lot of people look themselves in the mirror and figure out who they are and what they’ve been running from or what they’ve been putting off in their lives. For me, I’ve ran from myself for a long time and I’ve hated myself for a long time, and I’m gay. I came to terms with that that earlier this year and have been processing it. The next step in all of this was sort of letting people know. I’m still nervous, but it’s been a journey for sure. I’m like the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. That means the world to me.”

Underwood expressed he went through a very dark time to be able to reveal his truth: “I got into a place in my personal life that was dark and bad. I can list a bunch of different things, but they’d all be excuses. I think overall the reason why now is because I got to a place where I didn’t think I was ever going to share this. I would rather have died than say ‘I’m gay,’ and I think that was sort of my wake up call. There was a moment in L.A. that I woke up and I didn’t think I was going to wake up,” he said. “I didn’t have the intentions of waking up, and I did. And I think for me that was my wake up call, that, ‘This is your life. Take back control.’ I think looking back even beyond that is… even just suicidal thoughts and driving my car close to a cliff, like, ‘Oh, if this goes off the cliff, it’s not that big of a deal.’ I don’t feel that anymore.”’

As to the questions or anger that ‘Bachelor Nation’ are going to have that Underwood misled the female contestants on his season, or he duped the audience, Colton said: “I thought a lot about this…Do I regret being ‘The Bachelor?’ And handling it the way that I did?’  I do think I could have handled it better, I’ll say that. I just wish I wouldn’t have dragged people into my own mess of figuring out who I was. I genuinely mean that, but also at the same time I can say ‘I’m sorry’ to all of those women, I can also say ‘thank you,’ because without them and without the ‘Bachelor’ franchise, I don’t know if this would have ever come out.”

Colton was highly-promoted during his season as the “Virgin Bachelor”.  He acknowledged he was indeed a virgin at that time, but it was because he was gay, but just “didn’t know how to handle it”.   Underwood also shared he was thankful to God that he was cast on the reality-competition as one of its season’s leads because he thought that would make him straight.  He told Roberts in his talk with God, ‘Finally, you’re letting me be straight. Finally, you’re giving me a wife, a fiancée, and then I’m going to have the kids, then I’m going to have the house, and then I’m going to have all this.’

As to his contentious break-up with ‘Bachelor’ contestant, Cassie Randolph, where she had at one time had a restraining order put on Underwood and later revoked it, he admitted: “I would like to say sorry for how things ended. I messed up, I made a lot of bad choices.”  But told Robin Roberts, he indeed loved Cassie, sharing, “That only made it harder and more confusing for me. if I’m being very honest, I loved everything about her. And it’s hard for me to articulate exactly what my emotions were, and going through that relationship with her was, because I obviously had an internal fight going on. I would just say that I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart. I’m sorry for any pain and emotional stress I caused. I wish it wouldn’t have happened the way it did. I wish that I would have been courageous enough to fix myself before I broke anybody else.”

Underwood shared that his upbringing in the Catholic church and being in the world of high school, college, and pro sports contributed to why he never came out previously, citing,: ” learned in the Bible that gay is a sin. I had made mistakes in my sports and in my athletic career, and when you make mistakes, ‘that play was gay’ or that was a bad… gay was always affiliated with a connotation of negativity, and I think there’s a lot of things when I look back, like, ‘No wonder I held it in.’”

So, were you surprised that Colton revealed he was gay? How do you feel about the journey he expressed in his interview on GMA to speak his truth? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
