Castaway Mary Ann from Gilligans Island has apparently been cast-off, and to a role on CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful!  TV Insider reports on Monday that Dawn Wells from the comedy classic series will be seen on an upcoming episode of the sudser!

Wells will play an old friend of Eric (John McCook) and Stephanie‘s, who is also a Forrester Creations buyer named Alice. What brings Alice into the mix is Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) deciding to reclaim his place at the Forrester Mansion. Dawn’s episode will air on Friday, February 19th.

A rep for B&B previews what goes down during Well’s arrival on to the scene:  “Ridge holds a cocktail party at the house and invites Alice and the company’s other long-time vendors. But first, he takes down the portrait of Maya (Karla Mosley) that’s been hanging on the wall and replaces it with the portrait of Stephanie.”

Be on the lookout for the “portrait-takedown” to not go over well with Rick (Jacob Young), who is always at odds with Ridge – and this will just fuel that fire.

So, what do you think about Dawn Wells to B&B for this guest stint?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Wow, wonderful news, Dawn is 77 years old. She still looks fine as wine. lol.

I a tiring of the constant power struggles for Forrester Creations. When does anyone have time to make a difference?!? Why should we care? Like the split-second romances and marriages, this endless boardroom rondelay is boring. Eric should make some decisions. Why isn’t he in power, a stronger character?

Will she come from Winfield Kansas…will they serve coconut creme pie at the cocktail party…will Eric take her on his yacht for a three hour tour where she will talk about old boyfriend Horace who married her best friend…lol

I’m surprised Ron C never had her turn up on “Cassadine Island!” Maybe he was more partial to the glamorous Ginger…LOL!

Im sure Ron would of preferred the Professor and topless…lol

Jim, Ginger or Mary Ann?

Mary Ann…cant trust an actress…never know on certain times if she was just acting…lol

Hey, Jim–I wonder if Dawn’s character will be called “And the Rest”?

Harry…maybe in the credits…lol

New blood is good
And I’m happy to see that horrible protrait gone
This should be good
Ridge is home!!!!

It’s all about the story. No one will care if the story is boring.

You said a lot with that statement. I totally agree.

This is so cool—seeing this bit of news makes me wish Brad Bell could find a way to make Dawn Wells and her character a permanent fixture on the soap. I would go along for the ride with her!!!

But it was supposed to be a two hour tour, a two hour tour.
Oh it makes me wonder.
(anyone else ever hear the tune of Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” sung to the lyrics of the Gilligan’s Island theme song?
You have not LIVED until you do and I defy anyone right now to attempt to sing the aforementioned.

Hahaha—I just looked it up and heard it—that was so cool.

James, way back when I was an undergrad there was a radio program called the Dr Demento show. That is when I first heard it.
The Youtube is pretty cool too.
I also love Dawn Wells. She was and is a beauty.
Loved her as Maryanne with Ginger and Mrs Howell (Lovie) as the Honeybees–the all girl group.
Mrs. Howell was the original new wave rocker chick.

PS. Yes, I am a huge Gilligan’s Island fan.

I will be glad to see Maya dewalled!

Look forward to seeing Dawn AND Ridge on the show. Where is Ridge? Why is Rick in his office? Why is Rick making all these decisions? And give Eric something to do. How about a romance with Donna?

WOW, she could play Jill Abbott’s sister over at Y&R!

Wow! I love DW and her character from Gilligan’s Island. It’d be great if her character could be recurring. I read the article. The storyline looks interesting. Sparks should fly when that portrait comes down! Gotta love it!

That’s cool, I still watch Gilligan’s Island reruns that come on.

I’ve been watching them too and enjoy them.

Dawn looks good. I thought she looked familiar. And did you catch what she said? Going to the Marina for “A 3 HR. TOUR” just like on Gilligan’s Island Lets keep Stephanie’s portrait up their. Mya’s needs to go

I love how she said her plans were to take a 3 hour tour.

Ron Carlivati Reveals When Days of our Lives Episodes From His Head Writing Regime Resume Streaming

Days of our Lives viewers have not been watching material from head writer Ron Carlivati and his writing team for many months. Well, things are about to change.

Circle this Friday, May 31st when the first new script from Carlivati and company will stream on the Peacock soap opera. If you recall, Carlivati had to step away from the writing gig at DAYS due to the writer’s strike, but because the soap tapes at least seven months ahead of air, it is only now that fans will see how the stories shift or finish out that were started by Carlivati.

According to Ron’s conversation with TV Insider, when Carlivati and his team resumed writing the show in late October of 2023, the stories were already written well into 2024. Carlivati explained, “For me, as of us talking right now, the (replacement writers’ material) is still airing, so that has been very tough. I’m just very anxious and eager for our stuff to start airing again.”

Ron explained before the writer’s strike, he and his scribes had written up through the 2023 Thanksgiving episodes. Speaking on how the replacement writers tried to handle stepping in for the regular team, Ron expressed, “I think what they tried to do was move things slowly in the hopes that the strike would end and respect where my storylines were so that I could play them off when we came back. Unfortunately, the strike dragged on, so I understand that the show needed to make story decisions.”

The award-winning writer made clear that, “from January to May (2024), those were not my stories. I had nothing to do with those.”

Having lived through a writer’s strike before (when he was at One Life to Live in 2008), Carlivati explained how he dealt with coming back and adjusting the stories including that the plan was to, “blow things up, jettison anything that I did not like, and get back to a show that I understand and can enjoy and tell. ”

Look for a Carlivati-style ‘wink-wink’ on Friday’s episode. As he puts it, “I did want to make it clear that this was the line of demarcation, that the writers were back and there was a change happening. We have a little nod or two to what was going on in the first day and I think it will be very obvious and clear to the savvy viewer. Luckily, story-wise, certain things were coming to a head already.”

Stay tuned for how Ron resolves a Sloan and Nicole showdown, how Eric will find out he is Jude’s true baby daddy, what happens when the new Gabi returns from Salem from out of the slammer, the Maggie/Konstantin wedding, payback time for Theresa and more.

In addition, and as previously reported, when Carlivati returned, he crafted the series 15,000th episode which is set to air in early December, and will also pay tribute to the late Bill Hayes with the passing of his on-screen beloved character, Doug Williams.

So, glad to know Ron and his team’s material will start to reveal itself this Friday and moving forward on DAYS? Comment below.
