Wow! Judith has won the Tony and deservedly so. She is such a force in the acting world. I have watched her in every show she was on. Unfortunatly, I have not seen her on Broadway, but on Law and Order as a Judge and Ugly Betty. Congrats Judith!….

Judith Light…. she is such a “lauded” actress. Congratulations. What I herald Ms. Light for… is her continued support for giving voice to LGBT advocacy. She’s a front runner.. in that, she’s been helping people for years… like, all her life. Kudos to stepping up to the plate. Sincere thank you… for giving time to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community.

I loved you on Ugly Betty!

Judith Light, to me, is the personification of a capital A Actress, and this award is so deserving, especially in such a acclaimed production of an acclaimed play with other A-listers! More than 30 years later and Light’s Karen Wolek performance on the stand still resonates and is remembered, not for shock value but for the truth and honesty she gave that character on ONE LIFE TO LIVE. She is one who truly completes her characters, even her Angela on the sitcom WHO’S THE BOSS? was played on levels that were beyond the material. Congratulations, Judith Light!

Judith Clearly Deserves Her Tony As Witty & Lovable Aunt Silda In Other Desert Cities.

Go, Judith, Go–Yay! 😀 😀

I’m happy for Judith Light but a wish she would go eat a burger! She’s too skinny! All her bones are showing! Doesn’t she own a mirror?

B&B’s Kimberlin Brown Shows How-To Do The Sheila ‘Makeover’

Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, brought with it a very much alive and in disguise Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown).

While smart B&B viewers knew there was no way a bear ended the life of Sheila, and that she would return to the canvas to cause more trouble, no one quite knew how she would integrate herself into society to not get caught by the police for her crimes.

Now donning a red wig, some facial prosthetics and a new sexy wardrobe, Sheila tested out her transformation on a tipsy Deacon (Sean Kanan), who had too much to drink.  Next thing you know, the two ‘strangers’ have sex.  Does Deacon really not know its Sheila?

Meanwhile, Kimberlin Brown posted a video on her Instagram of just how the B&B make-up and hair team came up with Sheila’s new look.

The actress expressed: “#behindthescenes #transformation #sheila goes red! Thanks you @danmakesstuff and @tinsleystudio for the wonderful #prosthetics and of course the wonderful Chris Lia Johnson #makeup @stephpaughhair for her #wig work! What a great #team

You can watch the time-lapsed video below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Sheila’s new look? How will B&B incorporate Sheila’s disguise for the next leg of her storyline to still be a part of Finn’s (Tanner Novlan) life? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
