It’s a very busy time for five-time Daytime Emmy winner Heather Tom (Katie) on The Bold and the Beautiful! First, the actress revealed on Saturday via her Instagram account that she is indeed prepping to direct her second episode of the CBS daytime drama series.

Heather will be directing this Wednesday on February 3rd, while viewers will see that episode air on March 14th.  In her social media post she expressed: “Just sitting here doing some work for next week! #director”

But at the same time as she is busy behind the camera, Katie has major story coming up that kicked-off this week when she found her sister Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) professing her love for her husband Bill (Don Diamont).  Later, When Brooke finds her almost passed out on the floor at Spencer Publications,  after Katie took a drink to calm herself after overhearing Bill and Brooke, Katie reams Brooke for wanting to steal her husband.  Then, Katie reads the riot act to Brooke, and basically tells her she is no better than a common hooker!

Watch Katie laying the smackdown on Brooke after the jump.  Then let us know … are you glad to see that B&B is letting Heather direct more episodes of the soap?  What were your thoughts on Katie telling off Brooke?  Heather shared in a tweet last week that the story is not going to be the same ole’ same ole’ triangle,  so what twist do you see coming next? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I don’t even watch B&B but Heather Tom is always on target in her scenes. That girl is spectacular. Kudos to her for a great display of her acting chops once again. Her acting reel from last year’s Daytime Emmys was just out of this world great. And this should earn her another. Bravo!

I love her acting and it’s so real and great to see that she enjoys her work. I hope she stays with Bill or if not someone new that really loves her. I hope to see her son on the show soon.

Great acting by Heather Tom and Katherine Kelly Lang… but here we go again. Just when it seemed like Brooke was going to be given a good story-line…she’s back to being the fall guy!!! What about Bill??? He started it! And let’s not forget about Dishonest, Selfish, Manipulative, Self-righteous Ridge!!! He used women, is currently concealing a lie from his son about his unborn “grandson”. But oh right! Remember he dropped Brooke because she was dishonest and he wanted a peaceful life! Such Crap! When are these double standards going to end for my favorite characters..Brooke Logan, Sharon Newman, etc.… Read more »

Ollie, I couldn’t agree more… Y&R’s Sharon and B&B’s Brooke are the heart of each show, and the actresses deserve much praise and Emmy glory!

Now, Michael Muhney was an awesome actor! It’s reprehensible the way he was treated. Talk about being a fall guy…

I don’t like Brooke at all. I especially hate the triangles she’s always in but this story with Katie who is always playing the victim. Maybe she should remember the wedding Brooke & Ridge we’re having when she pretended to pass out just to keep them from getting married. I wish Brooke would have slapped her back because she needs it. If I could give Katie advice I would say get a backbone and stop playing the victim with the heart condition & if I could give Brooke advice I would say you don’t need a man and for gosh… Read more »

Why are they repeating this already “done to death” storyline?!?!?! The Bold and The Beautiful can be very Monotonous & Slow and sometimes it takes a lot out of me to remain a fan of this show, but that’s just a personal struggle.

Anne Heche ‘Not Expected to Survive’; Suffered Severe Brain Injury From Fiery Crash

In just heartbreaking news, Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), is not expected to survive after days in the hospital following being severely burned in a fiery car crash when her vehicle struck a home in Mar Vista, California last Friday.

According to family and friends of the motion picture and television star in a statement, “Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive. It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”  Deadline notes, the actress will be taken off life-support.

The statement went on to say, “We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital.  More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work — especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light.”

There are plans for Heche to get an Honor Walk, which is a hero’s goodbye donor patients receive by hospital staff as they are wheeled into the operating room in their final journey.

Heche will be featured on Lifetime’s Girl in Room 13, set to premiere this fall in September. Lifetime’s Executive VP  and head of programming, Amy Winter, revealed earlier this week at the TCA press tour, “As many of you know, Anne remains in critical condition and all of us here at Lifetime are deeply concerned for her and everyone affected. This project is important to Anne, along with each and every one of us. We all sought to make a film that would bring attention to this appalling issue of human sex trafficking.”

In addition, TMZ had reported that following toxicology reports, Cocaine was found in Heche’s system following the crash. They also found fentanyl. However,  sources say fentanyl can often be used as a pain medication in hospitals, so there is no confirmation that it was in Anne’s system at the time of the crash.

Anne was an amazing actress with such a tortured life.  We send thoughts and prayers to all her loved ones during this difficult time.  Share your thoughts on the latest update on Anne in the comment section below.
