Glory be! Best news I’ve heard regarding B&B in a long time. No offense to the actress, but the bloody character of Hope Logan has played a large part in what I feel has become the destruction of B&B. The non-stop focus on Hope and Brooke (KKL) has just been too much these past few years. They lost me as a viewer because of it.

I am just so tired of the back and forth between Liam and Wyatt it’s getting very very old

This role could so easily be recast. There must be at least 25 million blonde haired 25 year old actresses looking for a job in L.A.

Hopefully one of them can act.

hallelujah!!! I am sure she is a nice lady in person, but she just cant act worth crap. Good luck to her on getting another role. We will probably see her flipping burgers on Sunset in 2 years given her acting ability. I mean no offense to those who are cooks, it is a great career. Just saying she cant act worth dodo.

I agree they need to be together already!! The writers and screenplay writers are taking up too much time with Ariel views, ridiculous! Not replacing Hope is an epic fail! I am not surprised that Hope is moving on, she is a great actor and you can see her an Liam have a repore together, i am not mad a Wyatt but I can’t stand his face expressions it just doesn’t seem to come naturally to him. And Ivy, star stuck, love struck is aweful! I am really close to not watching this show anymore, I am down to taping… Read more »

Maya is a replacement of Hope as a huge pest in the show!KKL,KM and another KM (karla mosley) is a huge distraction hypocrite Witch whore character in B&B history!! please bring back Steffy,Thomas & Taylor and if possible please bring back from the dead Queen Stefanie even if recast… Read more »

I didn’t mean to dis the actress. She’s a beautiful young woman. I’m just tired of the whole triangle storylines. Now we’re repeating the pregnancy interrupting true love storyline. I guess Liam deserves it though!

I THINK KIMBERLY MATULA WILL RETURN ONE DAY.
Did you see,it adage,”Will not be re-casting KM” and i hope the ORIGINAL hope logan,kimberly matula wil return one day. She is fabulous.and many jealous of her want her gone,but i m sure one day she will return.

For now,i will watch . But if KKL and Kimberly Matula,leave for good i am no longer watching same as many others.Ratings will fall,once again,if both are going to leave for good.I hope both will not and return one day.

I agree. I’m upset Kim Matula is gone, and KKL is not here until a few weeks, I’m sorry I’m a 24 year old who thinks since they took away the hope story line, they lost me daily. I’m sorry but us younger generation can understand the love triangles!!!!This Maya and Rick show sucks!!!!!

Denise

This will be a big loss. I hope they look for someone else to replace her. No one can quite fill her shoes, but writing her off and losing another baby will be terrible. If the show is going to have women get pregnant don’t keep having them miscarry.

TM

It needs to be Liams beby, they find out the timing was off oOR she loses the baby when Quin pushes her down and it open the door to go back to Liam!

Cass

If Hope is leaving the show, her crazy mother in law will probably have something to do with how she exists the show. I’m sad because she is now pregnant and it has not been proven who the father really is. Her and Liam really love each other and it will be just awful if they let her die off or maybe she’ll come up missing. I can’t see her just leaving Wyatt and never return. I don’t know, just guessing at some reasons they may have her leave the show. Anyway, good luck to Kim in her career. She’ll… Read more »

Kim Matula REALLY lives her role. No fake tears or screeching here. I just wish she and Liam FI-NALLY had their happy ending here. Maybe the actress really IS pregnant and she needs to rest. I do hope she returns. I enjoyed her work. Good luck!

ally from biggest loser was hope and I must say I hated the change but this hope was fantastic!! Allie is doing very well for herself but if Hope and Liam don’t get back together I am SO done! Wyatt has no acting ability in facial expression and Ivy has no ability but to be love struck! Letting one actress go with true talent really? The new Ridge has not held up his part but that is not why I watch…. Hope and Liam make the show! Brooke and Ridge getting back together is always a great suggestion and Katie… Read more »

i am really gonna miss Kim , i love her , she is so cute , i love her , why is she leaving , this is Bul* Sh*t , all the good actors/actresses are leaving or are already gone , BELL , what are you thinking , i’m getting to the point i dont wanna watch anymore

lalee
Guest
lalee

They are probly leaving for the same reasons we all grip about,boring story lines,it’s boring to watch everyday but it must be twice as boring to read the same lines over and over. B&B thinks it’s so great because they go to Europe for shows but are they really there or are we fed tourists sites with back ground pictures they stand in front of? Like Hope waiting for Liam near the Eiffle Tower,she was behind a hedge for crying out loud,!

Gloria
Guest
Gloria

I agree!! I was beginning not to watch it all the time even after 25 years! I loved her for a long time and she is a good actress, it was the storyline that was getting too old, making me feel almost stupid for watching!!

JJ
Guest
JJ

I really enjoy Kim as an actress. She is beautiful and has always had a wonderful message. I can’t tell you how disappointed I was that the storyline took her to Wyatt. They had always showed her as NOT being like her mother and how important a message that was, and then they had her going back and forth between Liam and Wyatt. She deserved to be with Liam….someone on the show could at least be happily married.

Bea Thomas
Guest
Bea Thomas

I would not watch if they took KKL off. She has been the real reason I have watched as long as I have. Since inception of the show in “87. I like Kim, but I have become very disillusioned with the show, everytime we think Hope and Liam will be together, Wyatt enters the pictured and mess things up. I do not like the character, Wyatt, nor his mother Quinn.

Roberta
Guest
Roberta

I dislike! I wanted her and Liam to finally get together like they should of from the beginning! I will miss her.

Angela

Let’s bring Kim Matula back to the Bold Fold! She is definitely the Hope Logan we all love on the day time soap opera. I realize Kim wants to explore her opportunities but she knows the people and she can hold her own when it comes to her character and the men. Kim needs to return so she can put Quinn in a clinic where she belongs. Quin n should pay for what she did when Hope fell down the stairs. Also Liam and Hope nesds to get married once and for all!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wonder if they will recast the role? If they do, I suggest Julie Marie Berman.

I knew being with Wyatt would end up pushing her off the deep end. She should be with Liam. I will probably quit watching if she leaves. It just isn’t the same Liam with someone else.

I will probably quit watching, me too.

Jessie

I stopped watching when she married Wyatt. Only reason i heard about this was due to following the soups digest magazine page that showed it. It will b sad to see her go, but at the same time curious how they plan to write her,and the baby she is carrying , out. And when she leaves,if its tragic and she goes missing or something else that’s even more sad ,how will Liam react ,since he is with Ivy ….

Agree 1000% ! If Bell would’ve put her with LIAM she probably wouldn’t of left the show…. STUPID BELL, WHAT HAVE YOU TO THE STAR CROSSED LOVER’S-SOULMATES

Actually the actress admitted that she thinks Hope shoukd be witg Wyatt. She’s probably leaving because of the poor writing.

I love liam with Steffy. Hope was too rigid and wishwashy. Tbat is why she never got a happy ending with Liam.

Truly shocked by this exit; I really didn’t see Kim Matula leaving the show. I do wish her the best in her new ventures. I’m sure they’ll recast the role; Hope is pivotal to B&B at this point.

I agree the role likely will be recast. Still, I am tired of Hope Logan stories. The endless triangle really wore me down and turned me off to B&B.

Well there goes another B&B actor. While Hope hasn’t been my fav on the show. when she is with Wyatt I like her better. Can’t stand “Lope” that should’ve ended long ago. But my point is . When is Mr. Bell going to realize he is losing all his good actors? I can remember back when his mom&dad was running the shows and they kept ALL the actors. Then BBell gets his hands on the businesses and it all falls apart. Can’t keep the good actors. This should tell him something. WAKE UP OPEN YOU’R EYES. I don’t see these… Read more »

Well I hate Wyatt and Quinn. So if her leaving means those two will be off the show, maybe it will be more bearable. Wyatt is just like crazy Azz Quinn. It will show up soon. It already started today, with that looser taking up for her when she was sneaking around doing Hope Dr. appointment. I hope, that Hope next to last Sven will be her shooting both Wyatt and Quinn on the show.

Sad to see her go as I liked the actress but I’m glad that Hope will be off the show for a bit. I’m sick and tired of the Hope Liam thing and I’m glad it will finally be put to rest. I was about to stop watching but now I’ll wait and see what’s in store.

what’s going to happen to the story line about her and Wyatt and their new baby, will it end with them moving away like Brooke’s other daughter Bridgett. I wish Ms. Kim all the best,and I hope they fix this story. I know they might not want to recast her,but don’t kill the story line now

Jaybird you have to much time on your hands, lol. Kim MATULA will land on General Hospital as Serena Baldwin or The new Belle Black on DAYS. I still love you Jaybird, no matter what. Normally I agree with your comments, but not this one my friend. YOU are a sweet nice man. Take care.

Hi Josh,

OK…I tell you what…I-F Kim Matula actually does land on either GH (as Serena) or DOOL (as Belle), I HOPE TO GOD that it’s an anti-Hope kind of role. Dude, I’m sorry but I CANNOT STOMACH watching A-N-O-T-H-E-R Hope Logan-type of character. No. Sorry.

Oh, and Josh…I still love you, too…no matter what. Take care, you sweet dude.

Peace.

Well that must be the reason they brought Ivy on for Liam. Hope was ruined by Wyatt and Quinn characters. Hopefully these characters will have no reason to be on the show, and send Wyatt and Quinn off with Hope. The show has gone down hill.

Maybe Hope will exit by going to Italy to live with, raise her child with along with work for her mother at a Forester Creations there. Then maybe Hope will come back to B&B when her child is a adult. They make children grow up extremely fast on soaps.

She was surrounded by her closest family and fought with great strength, leaving us with a certainty of her never-ending joy of living and whatever adventures lie ahead. As iconic as she was on screen, she was an even more amazing mother and grandmother. We are grateful to the incredible team of doctors and nurses at the Moffitt Cancer Center for their care. Our mother’s zest and passion for life, her children, grandchildren and her many animals, not to mention her eternal joy of creating, were unparalleled and leave us inspired to live life to the fullest just as she did. We thank you for your love and prayers and ask that you respect our privacy at this difficult time.”

Kirstie’s controversial relationship with Scientology had been much talked about in the press and through her years in Hollywood.  The late actress shared in the past that through Scientology, it gave her the strength to climb out of her drug addiction and depression. In her 2012 memoir, The Art of Men, she noted that she stumbled upon Scientology at a very dark period in her life; that for 26 days, she drove from Kansas to Newport Beach, California, to visit a Scientology center, stopping periodically along the way to buy drugs.  After, she said Scientology helped her kicked her addition, Kirstie then became a devotee and spent decades publicly defending the church and building friendships within it, but later in life, she found some of those relationships fracture such as with Leah Ramini.

Below are some remembrances from stars from daytime, primetime, and motion pictures that offered up their sentiments on Alley’s sudden passing:

Greg Vaughan (Eric, DAYS): “I am beyond thankful to have had the pleasure to embrace your love, laughter & kindness!!! All my love & prayers”

Finola Hughes (Anna, GH): “#rip #kirstialley one of a kind”

Maksim Chmerkovskiy (DWTS) “My dearest Kirstie, We haven’t spoken lately and I’ll tell you everything when I finally see you, but for now I want to say that I love you very much and I wish you the most peaceful rest. You were one of the most unique people I have ever met and easily one of the brightest moments of my personal and professional life.  Some of our relationship is heavily documented. Most of it is known to select few. All of it was like a wild rollercoaster. From Maude to DJ Lil Buttercup you were always all in for life. As I’m typing this, memories of our time together rush to my head, I remember how absolutely wild you were and I start to tear up. Something you’d absolutely hate. And now I can’t help but smile because I remembered exactly what you wanted me to say at your funeral. Don’t think I can do it here… I thought you’d be around forever.  I wish we spoke often. Thank you for everything. I love you Kirstie Alley”

Ted Danson (ex-Cheers, ex-Mr. Mayor, ex-AW):  “I was on a plane today and did something I rarely do. “I watched an old episode of Cheers.  It was the episode where Tom Berenger proposes to Kirstie, who keeps saying no, even though she desperately wants to say yes. Kirstie was truly brilliant in it. Her ability to play a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown was both moving and hysterically funny,  She made me laugh 30 years ago when she shot that scene, and she made me laugh today just as hard. As I got off the plane, I heard that Kirstie had died. I am so sad and so grateful for all the times she made me laugh. I send my love to her children. As they well know, their mother had a heart of gold. I will miss her.”

Kelsey Grammar (ex-Cheers): “I always believed grief for a public figure is a private matter, but I will say I loved her.”

Rhea Perlman (ex-Cheers): “Kirstie was a unique and wonderful person and friend. Her joy of being was boundless. We became friends almost instantly when she joined the cast of Cheers. She loved kids and my kids loved her too. We had sleepovers at her house, with treasure hunts that she created.  She had massive Halloween and Easter parties, and invited the entire crew of the show, and their families. She wanted everyone to feel included. She loved her children deeply. I’ve never met anyone remotely like her. I feel so thankful to have known her. I’m going to miss her very, very much.”

John Travolta: “Kirstie was one of the most special relationships I’ve ever had.  I love you Kirstie. I know we will see each other again.”

Jamie Lee Curtis: “I’ve just heard the sad news that Kirstie Alley has died. She was a great comic foil in Scream Queens and a beautiful mama bear in her very real life. She helped me buy onesies for my family that year for Christmas. We agreed to disagree about some things but had a mutual respect and connection. Sad news.”

Harrison Wagner, Son of GH’s Kristina Wagner and Jack Wagner, Cause of Death Determined

General Hospital’s Kristina Wagner (Felicia) and former GH and B&B star Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco, ex-Nick) have been mourning the loss of their beloved son, Harrison Wagner, since he passed away this past June at the age of 27.

Harrison was found in a parking lot and his cause of death was initially deferred.  Now, according to a report from PEOPLE.com, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner officials have updated Harrison’s death as an “accident,” with Fentanyl and Alprazolam (the generic name for Xanax) as the official cause.

Following his passing, Kristina and Jack created the Harrison Wagner Scholarship Fund to assist other young men who battle addiction to be able to afford getting into a recovery community.

Just a few days ago on December 1st, Kristina remembered her son on what would have been his 28th birthday with a touching Instagram post. It included a video clip of Harrison dancing along with the words: “Sometimes I feel like a pinned butterfly. There’s no second chance. There’s no see-him-again. There’s no nothing. He’s not coming back. It’s final. But life goes on. How do I spend the rest of my own without Harrison in it? What does it mean to be ‘all right’ after the death of your child, your blood? The pain will never go away. Today is Harrison’s birthdate. I had the privilege to know him for 27 incredible years. Harrison was larger than life, but beneath his commanding presence was vulnerability and compassion. He understood his own defects and worked hard to turn them around, to strengthen his positive attributes. He was a good listener and stood up for others when they couldn’t speak for themselves. He is missed. Happy Birthday, Harrison. To all bereaved parents: May you find peace. Let’s stick around and see what’s in store for our extraordinary lives.”

Jack and Kristina have two sons together, the late Harrison, and their eldest son, Peter (age 31).  The actors were previously married from 1993 to 2006.

We continue to offer our condolences to Jack, Kristina, and Peter through this difficult time, and hope that from Harrison’s passing, that the scholarship fund in his name, will help others.
