As the World Turns fan favorite, Jon Hensley is returning to tape more episodes of Dr. Meade on The Bold and the Beautiful!  The actor announced today on his Twitter page, when he tweeted,  “Hi All.  B&B has invited me back for a few more episodes, I shoot them next week! No details yet!”

Now with Ronn Moss (Ridge) exiting the series, and Brad Bell (EP and Head Writer, B&B)  in his recent interview with TV Guide teasing that there will be a new man in Brooke’s orbit soon, could Jon Hensley as Dr. Meade be that man?

What would you think of seeing Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) and Jon Hensley together on a screen as a romantic duo?   And if not Brooke, who do you think Dr. Meade should be involved with on B&B?  Let us know your thoughts!

Oh gawd, I hope not. They got rid of Nick, when JW and KKL have AMAZING chemistry!!!! Bricky all the way! What about Deacon? KKL and SK are smoking hot too.

I thought of this yesterday and posted elsewhere on the site. I LOVE the idea. They would make a super hot couple — BUT I’d like to see Brooke pursued by two hot guys at once, both very different from each other, because two is a relationship and three is a STORYLINE! Wouldn’t have to be as manic as Steffy-Liam-Hope, though, just two guys that each bring out something different in Brooke. Maybe a guy who makes her feel secure (Dr. Meade) and someone who makes her feel young, carefree (rugged, free-spirited cowboy). Maybe Dr. Meade could be a cowboy at heart when he’s not taking care of patients? Holden, I mean, Jon Hensley could pull this off in his sleep — and give Brooke the “gounding” she will need after Ridge goes “off the grid”!

Rather see him paired with Thomas.

Very good idea! Storylines with only heterosexual human beings in L.A. are very old-fashioned 😛

Does someone like Brooke, so wrapped up in Ridge for 25 years, really go to a new man in the blink of an eye? (Well, as Brooke is written so often… yes.) BUT…

I would love to see Brooke having an epiphany of sorts. If this is the end of Ridge and Brooke, then maybe she can have a renaissance of sorts, tear herself down to the foundation and rebuild herself as a woman with fight and independence… and then maybe entertain romance. There are so many stories that can be told to that end. The endless bedhopping and years of wasted wanting could evolve into a new approach for Brooke that could have strong and lasting effect on the other Logans and Forresters. Or perhaps introduce audiences to something new and refreshing.

Iakovos, we often agree — and I feel a character (Brooke, in this case) can do all the things you suggested and still have romance w/o “bedhopping”. BTW, not to say you implied otherwise, but there is a difference between romance and bedhopping. I’m sure Brooke will not be dumped by Ridge and jump head first into a new relationship, at least I hope not. I was just saying this morning that I hate some soaps are about basically two things: M&M. Murders and Marriages. B&B is about “serial” marriages, of late, but NOT every relationship has to end in marriage or should necessarily (Hope & Liam!) Older soaps (UK/Aussie and some US) dealt with people’s day-to-day lives and relationships, and it WASN’T ALL marriage and mayhem. I like to see how people live and react to what’s going on around them … all soaps would benefit from more characters and less hand puppets that act out any fool plot the writers concoct (can you say Ricky? Daisy? Poor ruined Sharon?) … Y&R not only has multiple marriages (some ending almost before they’ve started) but also has one murder after another, usually before the last one is solved (some haven’t been solved!), thank goodness B&B has not gone there. Other fans don’t always understand why I defend (some) of B&B’s writing, that’s why. It actually could be worse, but it definitely could be better. Ridge “dropping out” can have a ripple effect across B&B and actually help the quality of the show. Hoping it will because: Much of the true power of daytime soaps has been lost in repetitive storytelling.

I don’t care for the storyline but I would love to see Jon Hensley on my TV screen again.

I would agree to this, as long as Jon Hensley’s character is pulled into Taylor/Bridget, etc. I don’t want him to become the next Ridge, Jon is above that as an actor. I want him to portray the right characters for him.

I think John Hensley will be a hot shut together with Brooke but also with Steffy!
Probably Brooke is pregnant with Ridge and Dr. M. WILL BE THE FATHER OF THE CHILD!….WOULD BE AMAZING!

Jon Lindstrom and Cady McClain Announce They Have Ended Their Marriage

After much speculation, General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin) and Cady McClain (ex-Jennifer, DAYS, ex-Rosanna, ATWT, ex-Dixie, AMC et al) have officially confirmed and announced they have gone their separate ways and have ended their marriage.

For months on social media, it was clear that the two were seemingly apart, not appearing pictured in any of each others posts.

Now, on a mutually shared Instagram post, Jon and Cady made an official statement on the status of their relationship, beginning with “Cady and Jon here. We are taking this opportunity to make a short statement about our relationship status. It may be obvious to some based on our posts that we’ve taken some time apart. After serious consideration we have decided that our goals have been taking us in different directions and to end our marriage.”

As to the future, Jon and Cady explained, “We remain friends and wish each other every happiness. As people who work in the public eye, it can be difficult to have a private life. Regardless, we ask for your kind consideration in this matter.”

Jon and Cady met when they both appeared on As the World Turns, he as Craig Montgomery, and she as Rosanna Cabot. After four years together, the couple decided to get married in 2014.

Richard Roundtree, ‘Generations’, ‘ATWT” and ‘Shaft’ Star, Dead at 81

Motion picture and television leading man, Richard Roundtree, has passed away at the age of 81. The actor, best known for his role in the iconic film Shaft, and its sequels, died from complications from pancreatic cancer on October 24th in his home in Los Angeles.

In a statement, Roundtree’s manager, Patrick McMinn shared, “Richard’s work and career served as a turning point for African American leading men in film. The impact he had on the industry cannot be overstated.”

During his extensive credits and career, Roundtree made two stops to two daytime soap operas. In 1990 till 1991, Roundtree played Dr. Daniel Ruebens on the defunct NBC soap opera Generations. He later appeared on As the World Turns from 2002-2003, taking on the role of Oliver Travers, the father to T. Marshall Travers played by Lamman Rucker.

Roundtree’s leading lady on Generations, Jonelle Allen took to her Facebook upon learning the news of the death of her former castmate and friend, expressing: “My Leading Man on Generations. I Am Very Sad. My Condolences To Your Family. Dearest Richard Roundtree.”

In a subsequent post, Allen shared a photo of their Generations’ characters, Daniel and Doreen about to lip-lock. Jonelle stated, “In the scene with him I kept thinking: ‘Shaft is about to kiss ME!!!’ Thank You.”

On Generations, Roundtree’s character of Daniel Reubens was a brilliant doctor, who was accused of killing someone by causing an explosion at a lab in 1974. He and his daughter, Maya, then went “underground” for the next 15 years. Maya was played by Viveca A. Fox.
