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 »

As the World Turns Alum Rita Walter Dead at 71

We’re still losing so many beloved soap opera actors as 2022 comes to a close. Now comes word that former As the World Turns alum, Rita Walter (nee McLaughlin) passed away at the age of 71.  Walter had been diagnosed with Multifocal Glioblastoma, an extremely aggressive form of terminal brain cancer.

Rita had an 11-year-run as Oakdale’s Carol Deming Hughes Stallings Andropoulos Frazier.

The former actress-turned-optician, died on Christmas.  Rita’s brother, David McLaughlin revealed the news on the 26th which also happened to be the anniversary of Walter’s exit from the defunct CBS soap opera in 1981.

In his posting on Facebook, McLaughlin shared: “My sweet, loving sister Rita was called to Jesus today on Christmas day, his birthday. She was a well known actress as well as dedicated server of the Lord Jesus. May you rest in peace Sis, I love you forever. You’ve taken my heart with you.”

Before playing good girl, Carol Deming, who always found herself in distress as only a good heroine could do, Rita started her career as Patty Duke’s double on The Patty Duke Show, before getting her first foray into soaps with a role on The Secret Storm as Wendy Phillips.

We clearly remember when on ATWT, Carol was married to Jay Stallings, but Jay was having an affair behind her back. Carol also had failed relationships and marriages to Tom Hughes and Steve Andropolous.  Eventually, Carol left Oakdale after falling in love and marrying Reverend Norman Frazier.  In a case of life imitating art, Rita married Reverend Normal Walter in 1976.

Walter is survived by her three children, Brian, Jill, and Amy, and her husband, Reverend Norman.
