Jon Hensley On His B&B Return: "I have always wanted to work with Katherine Kelly Lang!"

Now that Ronn Moss (Ridge) had left the building at The Bold and the Beautiful, and we know Brad Bell, the head honcho of B&B, has previewed there could be a new love interest for Brooke in the making, could it be former As the World Turns heartthrob, Jon Hensley?

Hensley who has appeared on B&B as Dr. Meade reported back to work on the CBS soap on August 20th, and while his air dates are not yet set or released, Jon spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue (on newsstands now) that he would welcome the opportunity to work with Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) as her new leading man!

Hensley stated, “I’ve know Kelly for a long time.  I’ve always wanted to work with her, but I knew it wasn’t a possibility because of Ronn.   Now that that’s dissolved somewhat, that door has opened.  It would be nice, even if it’s just for a few weeks.  Nobody mentioned that to me yet, because I don’t think anybody thought it was an option.  So we’ll see! I think it would be great!”

So soapers, what would you think of Hensley and Lang on-screen pairing?  We kind of dig it!

It’s obvious that this is the new pairing that Brad has planned for Katherine’s Brooke Logan! And I could support it as long as he doesn’t go and sleep with Hunter’s Taylor!

I pray it is written well if this is to be. If we go by recent practice, there will be a simple misunderstanding that will separate Ridge and Brooke and within moments of that, Brooke will be smitten with the doctor. Of course, the doctor will have a date with Taylor that will go only OK but enough to make Brooke angry and eager to keep the dcotor for herself. By the end of the second week, Brooke and the doctor will marry, leaving Taylor angry. That will incite something in Steffy who will try to steal the doctor for… Read more »

I haven’t watched the show much, but I never missed ATWT for 30 years. I would love to see him and Martha Byrne and Maura West on B & B. But I’m sure regular viewers would not. I may check it out though if he were on it. I never liked Ronn Moss much anyway…although I do like KKL.

Does this mean that we will finally get a break from what has become the Hope/Liam/Steffy show? I am so sick of tuning in and seeing that stupid expression on Liam’s face……uh, did I do something wrong? It is sooooo past time for TPTB over and B&B to focus on someone else.

Prepare yourself Torrey to be disappointed in an interview in SOD it is still all about the teeneyboppers. He is going to make the show more like One Tree Hill, and rumor also has it he already has Moss’s replacement picked out he as much as said so.

Why do I get the feeling it will be Brooke and Steffy fighting over the doctor and NOT Brooke and Taylor?

I didn’t know Ronn Moss was leaving what a geat loss for B&B. However, I think this would be a fatastic parring. How can you go wrong? When you put two of the most talented, not to mention hotest actors on daytime TV together? I think anything or anyone that can get Brooke to stop fixating on Hope’s love life and start focusing on her own for at least five episodes is a wonderful thing and I say, go for it! I’m not like some viewers who say they’re tierd of seeing so much of the show being devoted to… Read more »

It just seems a little odd to me since it’s been shown that Steffy has known Dr. Meade for a long time (that was shown in Aspen). I’m not saying Steffy and Dr. Meade should get together, but come on, another male character falling for Brooke. I can believe Brooke falling for another man, even right after she marries Ridge, because Brooke always finds an excuse for doing what she does, but this instant love that all male characters have for the Logans is really a joke. Of course Jon Hensley would want to be paired with someone who is… Read more »

ATWT and OLTL Alum Mary Linda Rapelye Passes Away at 76

She got her soap start as Faith Kipling, the wife of the evil Dr. Ivan Kipling on One Life to Live (1979-1980) and later came to Oakdale and As the World Turns as lawyer, Maggie Crawford (1980-1985), and now comes sad news that actress Mary Linda Rapelye has died from a battle with cancer.

Mary Linda actually passed away last month on April 5th, and according to The Booth Bay Register she was surrounded by her her brother Gardiner Rapelye Jr. and dear friends Julianna and Will Anderson by her side.  She was 76 years old at the time of her death.

Mary Linda started a long career of acting when she was only 5.  After her part in an outdoor production at The Starlight Theater in her home town, Kansas City, Missouri, she climbed off the stage and sat in her father’s lap. This was to be the beginning of her work spanning nearly eight decades on stage, screen and television. She is best known for her roles in Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, and of course, OLTL and ATWT.  She also made a memorable appearance in the role of Irina Galliulin in the Star Trek: The Original Series third season episode “The Way to Eden”.

A Memorial and Celebration of Life is being planned this July for MaryLinda in Booth Bay.

Below is a tribute video featuring clips and moments from Rapelye’s career.
