Joshua Hoffman Makes His B&B Debut as R. J. Forrester … What Were Your First Impressions?


Friday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful marked the on-screen debut of the new R. J. Forrester played by Joshua Hoffman.

In story, R.J. came back to Los Angeles to see his parents Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang), so he says.

What we did learn today is that R.J. is now quite the social media influencer traveling all over the world and apparently making dollars doing it.

Conveniently, Brooke just happened to be lamenting to Hope (Annika Noelle) on the very same day R.J. shows back up in town, about how much she was missing her son.

In the closing moments, R.J. mentions to his parents that he has travel offers on the table to Costa Rica and other spots. He then shares, “What I really want is to spend some time with you guys. I figured I’d stick around and post some L.A. content for a while.”

And we’re off to the races! The character of R.J. was last on the canvas when actor Anthony Turpel took on the role from 2016-2018.  Hoffman is the fifth actor to play the part.

Check out this scene below with Joshua, Katherine and Thorsten from today’s B&B.

Now let us know, what were you first impressions of Joshua as R.J.? Looking forward to seeing how his story plays out? Make sure to look for our interview with Joshua next week at Michael Fairman TV for more on this fresh face on daytime.

Handsome young man, glad they brought the character back, let him stay!

R.J seems like a nice kid, just hope he doesn’t turn out to be an evil, little turd like his Uncle Thomas.

If Ridge is RJs dad then isn’t he Thomas half brother?

Thanks, yes I wasn’t thinking right.

I don’t want R.J to really be mean but I’d love for him to give his big brother a taste of his own medicine and maybe give designing another thought, an overnight wonder so to speak and outshine Thomas out the door!

Hoping RJ will turn the tables on his entitled half siblings over the way they treated his mother and he keeps Thomas away from his sister.

They to bring back some of the underdogs like Ridges brother Thorn

And were are the other relatives to Thomas’s son. I would like to bill more active in this boys life. Didn’t Thomas marry his nice

What niece, only one is little Kelly, Steffi’s daughter.

Carolyn is/was bills niece but she died, Thomas married her and they had Douglas together. Ridge and Thomas were both sleeping with her at same time, paternity was an issue for Douglas!

Hope RJ protects his half sister from Thomas and he let’s his half brother and sister know they won’t hurt his family again.

He’s related to basically every cast member on this show except for Charlie and Carter so hopefully they bring is some new DNA. Los Angeles is a big city!

Why didn’t Bold & the Beautiful bring back Anthony Turpel? He was such a great actor!!

I wasn’t bowled over. We’ll see how he does. RJ never seems to stay in L.A. long.

He is soooo CUTE!!!

He looks like he could be Ridge’s son / Thorsten Kaye So that’s a start

Sorry, he looks nothing like Thorston Kaye. He’s blond like his mother and Uncle Thorne and Hope, even Bridget and Rick, nothing like his dad.

I think he looks SO MUCH like Mick Cain when he played C.J. Garrison on B & B !!!

He looks like a teenage Matt Damon is he 18 or should he be 25? They casted too young I Hope he can act Ridge is offering him the world to a kid when Thomas is earning his keep

He’s 23 , Born 1999, 24 in Oct. Just looked it up

FYI: Joshua has some really serious periodontal issue’s going on — please get him into a good dentist——needs to start a good oral hygiene routine …… flossing regularly—-it is gross to look at & I’m sure it is causing halitosis plus it is very unhealthy—I’m not trying to be mean or hurt him or be a smart ass —— just think you should help him pronto

If you are correct, I definitely need a better tv! I didn’t see bad teeth! I saw a really good- looking young man with a great personality!

Connie Mann,
Or should I call you Dr.? The kid’s teeth are fine, he just has very prominent upper gums, which quite a few people have. On him, it’s cute!

Thank you! Correct! I can’t watch him speak or smile knowing his breath has got to be bad from the condition of his teeth and gums. He’s a cute kid but he needs a visit to a dentist!

I’ve been thinking they need to bring RJ and now add another new family that moves to town or maybe an intern who he falls in love with. They need some new characters for sure. I think he’s a good mix of Brooke and Ridge also has Steffy’s smile in some way. She show her gums too when she smile. I’m liking RJ. He’s cute! And very sweet! Like a regular guy. Maybe sort like Liam. Just my thoughts

Sorry not a fan , and the storyline …here we go again. They had to bring someone to continually talk about putting ridge and Brooke back together, it’s cringy. He’s been on about two weeks , he’s an adult and that’s his storyline …

Been watching since show started. The show seems to be setting a lower and lower bar for actors. Hope is horrible and now Rj’s actor even worse. He is very strange!!! Not looking forward to watching any longer.

Agree. It’s difficult to watch him. He looks uncomfortable and like he doesn’t know what to do. Not a great pick.
Also I can skip a ton of episodes since I’m the last couple of years the actors just repeat over and over the same lines. Esp Taylor. If she’s a world renowned doctor then we are surely doomed.

I noticed that his gums around his front teeth are all red and swollen. He needs to brush those teeth and gums real good to get those gums to start healing ad get healthy. Also schedule an appointment with a dentist to see if more treatment is needed. Handsome young man!

General Hospital Alum Richard Simmons ‘Not Interested’ In Biopic with Pauly Shore Portraying Him

Former General Hospital guest star and fitness guru, the reclusive Richard Simmons, has come forward and addressed actor and comedian, Pauly Shore’s wish to play the 70’s and 80’s pop culture icon in a biopic about his life.

Shore previously took to social media and on X shared a side-by-side of him and Simmons. Accompanying the post, Pauly expressed: I’ve noticed the reactions to me playing #RichardSimmons in a biopic. I heard he’s living in Big Bear. We’ve been playing phone tag (yes, he has a phone). I’m trying to make it happen, you guys. In the meantime, hit up all the big producers. I’ll see you at @TheAcademy 2025!”

However, TMZ’s sources are reporting on Saturday that Simmons is not in favor of Shore playing him in a film or anyone else, or any biopic on his life.

The outlet shared that Richard’s reaction was that he was aware of the effort behind a biopic, mostly spear-headed by Pauly. but that he just doesn’t want to be involved. Simmons also added that he likes Pauly a lot, but he’s not biting, despite the public’s urging on social media about the idea of a movie on his life.

Born Milton Teagle “Richard” Simmons, he became part of the public conscious back in the 70’s and 80’s with exercise studios and the ability to have his clients lose weight. any of them were celebrities. Simmons himself admitted to at one time being overweight, and getting into fitness helped him maintain a healthy living style and he wanted to help others.

Later, he began a four-year recurring run on General Hospital playing himself from 1979-1983.  Simmons returned to the show in 2013 for the Nurses’ Ball to taunt Lucy (Lynn Herring). He also was host of the Emmy-award winning, The Richard Simmons Show, which focused on personal health, fitness, exercise, and healthy cooking.  Over the last several years, Simmons has withdrawn from public life.

What would you think of a Richard Simmons biopic and if it included some moments in front of the camera and behind the scenes of what went down when he appeared on GH? Do you think it will ever happen given Simmons current position on the matter? Let us know in the comment section.

Promising news for General Hospital’s John J. York (Mac Scorpio). The actor who went public with his health battle shared Friday on Good Morning America that a life-saving blood stem cell transplant donor may have been located.

An emotional York told GMA, “I believe they found a match, perfect match, which will make me cry.  So we’re going to start our testing and do all that kind of stuff coming up here in about a week, and then I believe the transplant will happen, fingers crossed, in November.”

Through his association with the Be The Match organization, York located the now potential donor to help in his fight against myelodysplastic syndrome and multiple smoldering myeloma, two blood and bone marrow disorders. “

York went on to explain the difficulties he faced in trying to find a match: “Many of my family members were tested and most of them were 6 out of 12; apparently there’s markers that have to be reached. So they were on standby.”

When asked just what the GH fan favorite would want to say if given the opportunity to speak to the donor that appears to be a match, in tears, John expressed: “Thank you for saving my life. For letting me spend more time with my wife and my daughter and my son-in-law and my grandchildren and seeing this beautiful blue sky.”

John has played Mac Scorpio for 32 years and until recently had kept his battle with these two blood cancers private, but came forward to clarify why he is taking time away from GH, and how he is been trying to find a life-saving donor match.
