Sheila Carter’s (Kimberlin Brown) legal troubles are bringing with it some soap opera favorites to The Bold and the Beautiful.  First, Joe Lando (ex-Jake Harrison, One Life to Live, ex-Byron Sully, Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman) who previously appeared on the CBS soap opera, is reprising his role of Judge Craig McMullen.

Lando had appeared as Judge McMullen back in 2018 to preside over Katie (Heather Tom) and Bill’s (Don Diamont) custody battle over their son, Will.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, look for Lando first appear on the Monday, January 9th episode.

With Bill perhaps having some leverage on the judge, especially since McMullen was persuaded by Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) to rule in Katie’s favor in the custody hearing, might he pull some strings to make McMullen rule in Sheila’s favor? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Sheila has lawyered up! Look for former Passions star, Rodney Van Johnson (ex-T.C. Russell) to play her attorney.

Johnson told SOD on his new role on B&B: “I was offered to come play in their sandbox … which is just amazing!”

Look for Rodney to first appear on Monday’s January 9th episode, as well.

The actor previously appeared on Port Charles, The Young and the Restless and in numerous primetime TV roles.

So, what do you think of Joe Lando and Rodney Van Johnson coming to B&B to see, or not see, that justice is served in the case of  Sheila Carter? Comment below.

I love Joe Lando from way back, so I’ll take him in a Judge’s robe or without but I’m unfamiliar with Rodney-Van-Johnson only his probable name sake, the gorgeous Van Johnson from back in the day, red haired and freckled.

On second thoughts, I can’t believe Joe Lando would agree to such an unbelievable, assanine part.

It’s a one day it is embarrassing you have heard of the Starving Actor ! Lordy sell real estate

Looks like they are sending age appropriate men for Tyler and Brooke

The only good thing this show has going is I adore the friendship between Taylor and Brooke. Krista and Kelly just play off each other so well. I think it’s a great storyline these two women finally grew up and realized the issue between them . Kudos to whoever wrote this

Cameron Mathison Previews New Game Show ‘Beat The Bridge’ (Promo)

As previously reported, Cameron Mathison (Drew, General Hospital) will be seen doing double duty this summer when he premieres in June as the host of Game Show Network’s Beat The Bridge.

Now, while Cameron will be the host with the most, that doesn’t mean he will stop playing GH’s Drew.  In fact, Mathison taped the game show in 2023, so it will now air for the first time in 2024.

Taking to his Instagram this week, Cameron shared his enthusiasm and some new hosting snaps, sharing, “Our newest game show host reporting for duty😎 Head over to the Game Show Network YouTube channel for your first look at the show and don’t miss Beat The Bridge premiering this June! I can’t wait for you guys to see this!”

In Beat The Bridge, an enormous interactive bridge dares players to cross by stepping on the right answers to challenging trivia questions. As they play, each steps forward and puts money in their team’s bank, with bonus money for each successful crossing. Here’s the catch: the team gets to keep the money only if it can “beat the bridge” by returning one of its players back across before time expires.

Meanwhile, on GH, Drew and Nina (Cynthia Watros) recently had hate-sex. Do you think its a one-time deal? Where will Drew’s story take him next under new head writers, Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte? Stay tuned.

Now below, check out the first promo for Beat The Bridge from the Game Show Network with you host, Cameron Mathison.  Then, let us know, will you be checking out the game this summer? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

There has been lot of soapy projects coming to life and in the works of late, and now comes word that Kim Kardashian is executive producing a new series in development for Netflix called Calabasas.

The story follows “Via, a 16-year-old sheltered Midwestern Catholic school girl whose world is turned upside down when her family moves and she’s forced to transfer to the fast world of Calabasas High where nothing is as it appears and where everyone is trying to be someone else. It’s a place where dreams come true … but not without complications and sometimes unforeseen consequences.”

Ellen Travolta Makes Another Return to General Hospital

If General Hospital’s Chase (Josh Swickard) and Brook Lynn’s (Amanda Setton) nuptials are on, you didn’t think Grandma Gloria Cerullo would miss out on the festivities, now did you?

Casting news from Soap Opera Digest reveals that Ellen Travolta is back taping scenes that will air the week of May 13th on the ABC daytime drama series.  When viewers learned that Carmine Cerullo, was also on his way back to Port Charles, now in the face and body of actor George Russo, it only made sense that Grandma Gloria would join Grandpa Cerullo. Look for them both mid-May.

As most people know, Ellen is the older sister to John Travolta. She first make appearances as Gloria back on GH in the mid-90s. Most recently, she returned to the Quartermaine mansion to meet up with daughter, Lois (Rena Sofer) and granddaughter Brook Lynn for Thanksgiving in Port Charles in 2023.  Michael Fairman TV interviewed Rena Sofer and Amanda Setton late last year where they shared what it had been liking working with Ellen, who remains very close to Sofer in real-life.

Amanda shared: “We fell in love immediately. What’s crazy is my maternal grandmother was Grandma Gloria. I had her till I was 30 and we were so close. She was really like a second mom to me. So, when I got this script and I’m reading “Grandma Gloria”, it was so bizarre. And then in meeting Ellen, she looks like my grandma – same haircut, same high cheekbones. It really did feel like I had a few days with my grandma. It was very, very special for me. Ellen is sweet, prepared, professional, talented and funny to boot. So, it was one of the best weeks I’ve had at work. I hope she comes back. My fingers are crossed.”

Now, we can’t imagine Brook Lynn and Chase’s wedding day to be smooth sailing, in fact, expect just the opposite, but could it be Grandma Gloria who is ultimately the hero or the calming voice of reason for any pre-wedding jitters? Stay tuned.

So, glad to know that Ellen Travolta will be back for Brook Lynn and Chase’s big day? Comment below.
