Hunter Tylo Returning To The Bold and the Beautiful For May Sweeps!

Great news Taylor Hayes fans!  Hunter Tylo is returning to The Bold and the Beautiful for a May Sweeps storyline arc! The news broke over the weekend through Hunter’s fan pages, but now has been confirmed by a show rep via Soap Opera Digest.

According to reports, Hunter will be returning for around three weeks of story that begins to play out on-air on April 25th and goes through part of May.

What brings Taylor back to the B&B fold? Perhaps, the continuation of the storyline with Aly Forrester (Ashlyn Pearce) who is struggling to come to terms with the death of her mother Darla (Schae Harrison) who was in fact, struck down and killed by a then drunken Taylor!

So, glad to hear there is more Hunter on B&B?  What will happen when Taylor returns this time?  Comment below!

    Well it would be nice to see her back of course but why at such a crucial time is it a bait for the fans to help with ratings???
    Why not give her a credible good storyline too she can do it

    Great news; so happy to see her return. I am looking forward to seeing the focus taken off all the Logans for a change.

    I would love to see Hunter back as Taylor, however, NOT if histroy is going to be re-written once again by Bell,Jr. FYI, Taylor was not drunk the night Darla was killed. The proof is in the video as well as the transcripts from 2006 (July).

      Taylor was too drunk she even admitted to drinking 2 to 3 glasses of wine. That’s is the transcripts as well.

        Taylor NEVER admitted to being drunk. She admitting she had been drinking (BIG difference) ON-SCREEN it showed her drinking one glass of wine and pouring the rest of the bottle out. This was hours before Phoebe called. I just completed 4 articles recently for BBUNIVERSE from the transcripts, video and archives, so all of this is fresh in my memomry

        She was DRUNK during her Nick scenes on the boat. That was DRUNK!
        Having 1-3 drinks of wine for someone who has a tolerance is much different than being slobbering drunk like Brooke recently was. Taylor had all her faculties in tact, had no slurred speech, she took control, had Phoebe call 911, assessed Darla for shock and accurately performed CPR. Someone DRUNK would have sat there, drool and go ?Duh?
        More accurately, she was under the influence which is quite distinct from DRUNK.
        Many of us won’t overlook the fact that Darla, dressed in black, DID fly directly into the path of Taylor’s car. Taylor was not weaving like some claim, she was driving in her lane where she should have been on that dark foggy night.

      Thank you so much! I hope HT does not agree to come back for Brad Bell to bring her down just to prop up KKL. Enough! I know HT she is a lovely person and never once has she bad mouthed Brad Bell. Watching Katie & Fake Ridge carry on in the house he bought for Taylor makes me sick. I hope she mops the floor with that nut case Ally. Darla literally changed a tire and threw herself out into the Highway she was not called Einstein for no reason. Please do not rewrite story it was a tragic accident. By the way was Rick not responsible for Phoebe’s death? You know the daughter we all forget about!

    I love seeing Hunter on my screen, but I have my doubts bout watching this incest garbage. Bell has spit at loyal viewers once to many times.

    Her fans want to see her back where she belongs ON CONTRACT AND ON FRONT BURNER. Nothing less than that.

    I will watch for Hunter but when she goes I go again. I suspect Brad is only bringing her back to completely destroy her character once and for all but I will tune in and see how it goes. I will always love and support Hunter but I will not watch the character I have loved for 25 years rewritten and destroyed and then booted to the curb again. Bell has pulled the rug from underneath this viewer one too many times.

    I hope Taylor and Ridge have scenes together and he starts to remember when he, you know, had children not named “R.J.” It’s as if all of his history before Thorsten Kaye took over was tossed in a garbage pail. I hate it.

      I love the new Ridge. The last one (Ron Moss) was to much like a female for my taste. This one is manly. I don’t like the way Katie is acting lately. She went from a spoiled cry baby to acting like a bully. She keeps saying Brook took her husband but she seems to forget plotting them together every time. Sending them on a wild goose chase,now crying its because she was sick. In the long run he’ll only hurt Brook again but he wont stay with that cry-baby for long. I think Ridge is going to pretend to want Brook back just in order to get the President job from Eric, then he’ll fire Rick and a few others along with the end of Hope for the future, he’ll try to bring Katie back once he has the company & he’s already designed her a dress. He designed a wedding gown for Brook how many times? He also designed a dress for Brook, Caroline and Taylor now Katie hopefully they put it on display with the others. He called it Katie it could stand in there store beside the other 3!!

    Try as hard as they want to convince some of us otherwise, the character is once again being used to lure the viewers that have left since ‘Taylor’ was #notworthy enough of a contract.
    Why not have the wanna-be Forrester ‘matriarch’ help with Aly’s healing? Isn’t she capable? Didn’t Brooke herself admit she was responsible for the deaths of Macy and a truckdriver while SOBER? It might be something different for Brooke, seeing it’s likely that she won’t hop into bed with Aly to accomplish that.
    It’s been well established to the viewers that there’s NO ROOM for Taylor or any of her family on this show. The Logans from the Valley are the only important ones now.
    This former viewer got the message loud and clear and I won’t be back to watch Taylor being used as a prop again; nor will I be biting any ratings carrots, either.
    Taylor’s guest 2 min. of screen time last time wasn’t worth it.
    I accurately remember how the SL went down in 2006 and certainly don’t need to watch it be rewritten.

      Maybe Hunter does not want a contract! I love Steffy but she does not want a contract right now either. I would like to see more of Donna. I’m also tired of seeing Liam hanging around like a sad sack.

    So glad to hear Hunter’s coming back! I stopped watching a while ago as the show became all about Logans and ‘youngins’. FINALLY an actress is coming back to the canvas and let’s hope Brad Bell can write for her. Taylor was and will always be the decent, reasonable character on this show. Currently, there aren’t ANY!

    I for one, CANNOT wait!!!!! I hope there are some Brooke/Taylor scenes, bc Brooke never got to beat her down for that disaster of a bday party!!! The feud is one of the best in daytime and they need to milk it while they can!!! She also needs to have scenes with Ridge, although I wish it was the old Ridge….Kridge is a complete joke and disgusting. I am friends with Winsor Harmon and he filled me in and told me about some MAJOR Taylor/Aly Scenes ahead. And for ppl who call it the Logan Show…..JMW chose to leave and explore other options, so u can’t blame Brad Bell for that. And the charter of Thomas has never been written effectively. They totally forgot about Amber claiming his virginity back in the day and they had a missed opportunity last time amber Moore was in town. But to have HT back on full-time would be awesome. She could give Quinn some counseling!! Haha!!!

    It’s not surprising that HT fans always so quick to blame KKL for HT not being offered a contract.. As I recalled when her departure was announced last year they said she was better off leaving .. But the show is doing just find without HT one liner .. I think Rena Sofer was a good replacement for HT.. A lot more entertaining!

    • Alex

      April 2, 2014 at 1:13 pm

      Well of course you do in pure Brooke lover fashion. Hunter has a huge fanbase. The show has not done well without her or JMW! That is why Bell has to keep bringing her back. I like Rena but she is hardly a replacement for Hunter Tylo and the character of Taylor. You have to have someone on this show who is not a complete tramp or sleeping with relatives.

      • Fran

        April 4, 2014 at 5:16 pm

        I see your point but Hunter is so boring I would like to see someone different be the good guy. Someone with a little spunk & excitement.

    Let me hurry up and set my DVR to record another eppy of “The Logan Show”, where the talented, classy and stunning Taylor is brought back for just enough eppys, to rewrite history, in another lame attempt, to diminish Brooke’s latest familial sexual affair.

    Apparently Bell Jr. is under the impression that we are all senile if we can’t remember what occurred in that storyline 8 years ago.

    What I want to know is when the truck driver’s kids, are going to come back and try to shank Brooke for causing their mother’s death….or will there be a rewrite on that too….in Brooke’s favor, of course?

    That is just a bait. I will be back watching when Hunter Tylo and hopefully JMW or any other good actor is back. A storyline which does not declare the viewers as idiots would also help. TK , HT and Scott are good, the rest is more than mediocre.

  18. HTFan

    April 2, 2014 at 8:31 am

    I’m glad to see Hunter back worried that Bell is only bringing her back for another terrible storyline. Like others here, I’m reasonably sure we are in for a re-writing of history where Bell will declare Taylor as a falling down drunk the night of the accident. He hopes the audience has forgotten that on screen through out the months following the accident and the entire trial the accident was NEVER portrayed that way. Thank goodness for us long time viewers with good memories and Youtube videos—the truth of that storyline will never be compromised for us!

    She has the same name as an actress that appeared on DAYS, but they don’t look alike.

      Nope same lady– she had some plastic surgery done on her face, which might explain the change in her looks, but this Hunter is the same Hunter who played Marina Toscano on Days in 89-90.

    Hunter Tylo and her character, Taylor, were the reason I watched B&B for over 20 years. They are also the reason I am not watching now because without them, B&B is nothing to me. I would love to see Hunter return as long as it is not done in order to destroy her character. Taylor was drunk when she hit Darla? Who watched those scenes with me? Taylor was in total control while talking to Phoebe, no evidence of even being “high”, much less drunk. Over the years, there were a few scenes in which Taylor was drunk and we got to see those scenes; therefore, it was very easy to be able to determine when she was drunk and when she was not drunk. We did not have to guess and she was definitely not drunk when Darla went flying into the air and hit her car. Also, she and Ally got along just fine the Christmas show of 2008. I guess we did not see that happen either.

Mary Beth and Stephen then chat with Ron about what changes is he having to make to scripts in the reality we all live in now, the coronavirus pandemic, and how he is taking in to account upcoming safety protocols that will need to be adhered to when Days goes back into production.

As of now, from an article in Deadline last Friday the NBC daytime drama series is aiming for a September 1st restart.

B&B’s Denise Richards Reveals Her Husband Aaron Phypers Will Be Stand-In During Ridge Forrester Intimate Scenes

On Tuesday’s edition of CBS Daytime’s The Talk@Home, The Bold and the Beautiful and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Denise Richards (Shauna) appeared on the series.

During her segment, Denise discussed how she felt about B&B being the first American TV show back in production amidst the coronavirus pandemic and if she felt safe returning to work.  Richards also discussed how the love scenes and more intimate moments of the series will be done either with real-life partners standing in for their on-screen love interests, or a blow-up doll.

Denise expressed: “I’m excited to go back to work. I think it’s important for us to also be safe, but to move forward. And Brad Bell [executive producer and head writer, B&B) has implemented a very safe environment, I feel, for all of us, so I think it’s important.”

As to the COVID-19 testing protocols, Richards explained:  “Every week we’re tested. If there are more than two actors, we have mannequins. If there is an intimate scene, they’ve asked us if our significant other can step in for that person. Otherwise, we’ll be doing a love scene with a doll.”

It was then Denise confirmed that her husband, Aaron Phypers, will be stepping in for intimate scenes with love interest Ridge Forrester, played by Thorsten Kaye: “He (Phypers) is standing in. And he came with me today. He had to have his COVID test too, every week the whole cast does. He starts standing in next week.”

Watch what Denise shared on her return to B&B below.

Then let us know what you think of B&B’s love scene or intimate moment protocol in order to get new episodes in the can safely for everyone involved via the comment section.

Who Will Be B&B’s New Love Interest For Steffy Forrester?

The Bold and the Beautiful is back in production, the first soap to do so amidst the coronavirus pandemic, and there has been much speculation and talk for awhile now as to just what the future holds in story for one of its leading stars, Daytime Emmy-winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester).

It appears that instead of re-treading a romance for Steffy with Dollar Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) or his son, Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton), the series is about to bring in some new suitors into Steffy’s romantic life!

According to B&B’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, he has big plans for Jacqui in the months ahead, as he related to TV Insider.

When Bell was asked about the new love interest coming in to the show for Steffy,  he revealed: “We have a great story coming up for Jacqui. Steffy has been committed to her work, her daughter Kelly…but people have been wondering when a new man will enter her life. He’s coming. She’ll have a period of time where, in fact, quite a few men will be after her – as they should be. She’s spectacular and unique. I’m thrilled to say that this next chapter will be very much about Steffy. I always feel comfortable putting drama in the hands of Jacqui Wood.”

In addition, recently on  The Michael Fairman Channel’s recent Daytime-Emmy virtual chat with Wood, Scott Clifton and Heather Tom, the actress also alluded to a potential new love interest for Steffy, too.   You can watch that below.

So, who would you suggest to play opposite Jacqueline MacInnes Wood as her new love interest?  Share your casting thoughts via the comment section.
