Now that they have a small number of core veterans in place (i.e. those over 40 years old), you can be sure that the only new casting news will involve 20 year olds. Ugh. Not liking where this is headed.

Agree with you Brian! I get so annoyed with people complaining about the cast announcements, when the first rebooted episode hasn’t even aired yet. I have a feeling that we are not going to be let down, at all…..

Don’t worry. The vets can hold their own. I’ve always said OLTL has the strongest cast in daytime television. Considering the list of those vets returning it doesn’t appear that has changed.

Wonder how he is supposed to know Mathew and Dani? But it should be interesting seeing more involvement of the Banner again.

‘We’re all in this together’..oops im getting a little carried away here. Somehow that song got stuck in my head. lol. Im wondering if there is a certain time a day you watch the original episodes of AMC & OLTL or is it kinda like On Demand where you can watch on your own time.Wellm I do know you can watch anytime but i wondered if online programing is scheduled anything like network and some cable shows where the new episodes have a regular time slot before you can watch any other time. Not feeling well the last few days… Read more »

I am excited about this because he will more than likely bring his fan base with him and boost ratings for OLTL and even AMC. PP is very smart about this and these shows are going to do really well. Do you think he will be in a romance with Dani? Or will there be a quadtrangle with Des/Dani/Matt/Jeffrey?

The constant complaining about every little thing has become annoying as hell, I know everyone has a right to their opinion, but can you give a rest until the damn shows have aired??

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
