Joe LoCicero on His B&B Demise: “I Do Believe I’m Done Filming But it is a Soap Opera So Anything is Possible”

Now that Vinny is a-goner, the lives of many of the Spencers, Forresters, and Logans will be thrown into turmoil on upcoming episodes of CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful.

Actor Joe LoCicero began playing Thomas’ (Matthew Atkinson) best bud, Vinny, back in 2019 and along the way has done some shady and despicable deeds.

He chatted exclusively with Soap Opera Digest about his character’s demise, sharing that B&B’s head writer and executive producer, Brad Bell, gave him the heads up a few episodes before his untimely end on the daytime drama series, sharing, “It wasn’t a lot of notice because they wanted to keep the story a secret.”

LoCicero who is married to actress Gina Rodriguez, who at one time also appeared on B&B as Beverly, shared that his wife was bummed out by his exit.

Now as to whether viewers have seen the last of Vinny in flashbacks, or if there is twin lurking around, all LoCiero slyly would share was, “I do believe I’m done filming but it is a soap opera so anything is possible.”

So, did you enjoy Joe’s performances? Should he come back as Vinny’s twin? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

How is this a “major” death? Vinny was not a major character, and how is what he did by switching the paternity results WORSE than what Flo did by allowing Hope and Liam to believe their baby was DEAD?! The logic on this show is non-existent, and I really wish the character who died was Flo instead. It’s beyond me that anyone in the Logan family can forgive her for what she did, and how Wyatt could have ended things with Sally for Flo.

I guess Joe LoCicero was right. He was done, mowed down, or not, by someone who felt he got what he deserved. Could he have been dead already and put there to make it look like a hit and run? Today when Bill was trying to soothe Liam, he said he saw him walk in front of the car which is not true,because neither of them saw anything until they felt the thud. This should get very interesting, especially the way they drag out things. Just don’t know how long I can take Liam’s moaning and groaning . I really… Read more »


REPORT: Clayton Echard Cast as the Next ‘Bachelor’ for its Upcoming 26th Season

After all the turmoil of the previous ‘Bachelor’ seasons, it looks like the ABC reality-dating competition may have found their man.

Multiple sources are reporting that Clayton Echard, who no one has seen yet, and who appears as a suitor in Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, has actually been given the nod to be the lead in the new upcoming 26th season of the series.

On Wednesday, leaked photos appeared online of Echard with a camera crew by E! News  questioning if he would be the new “Bachelor.”

Variety is saying that their sources are saying Echard is ABC’s choice for the lead, but that no official announcement will be forthcoming especially since Young’s season of The Bachelorette which bows October 19th had not even begun.

What we can glean on Echard from his Instagram page is that he is 28-years-old and from Missouri and played college football at U of Missouri and was signed as pro to play with tight end with the Seattle Seahawks, but he is now an orthopaedic saleman.

So, will you be watching the new season of The Bachelor when it comes around most likely in January 2022? Comment below.

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Darin Brooks (Wyatt) and his wife, Kelly Kruger (Eva, B&B and Mac, Y&R) had a little gender reveal party over the weekend and took to Kruger’s Instagram to share some news with all of their fans, friends, and colleagues.
