Kim Matula Set For A Return To The Bold and the Beautiful!

Courtesy/IMDB

Courtesy/IMDB

Missing Hope Logan?  Well, Kim Matula (Hope) who left The Bold and the Beautiful late last year, and who last aired on the CBS Daytime drama on December 12th, is making a brief return to the series for an upcoming episode set to tape this week on Wednesday, March 4th, according to Soap Opera Digest.

When viewers last saw Hope, she had a heartfelt goodbye with Liam (Scott Clifton) before she headed to Europe to clear her head after losing her and Wyatt’s  (Darin Brooks) child in a terrible fall.  Viewers literally saw the emotional scene where Hope sort of dissolved into the frame of the video and vanished after coming to understanding with Liam about their relationship.

These days, Liam’s plate is full with his new girlfriend Ivy Forrester (Ashleigh Brewer) and the return of his former flame Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood)!  Will Hope walk in on all of his? What brings Hope home to Los Angeles? Is it to help her mother Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) cope with her battle with the bottle?

Share your thoughts on the news of Kim filming again at B&B?  Do you hope that eventually she will return full-time?  What do you think brings her back on the scene? Let us know!

Agreed!
I haven’t missed Hope in the least! Thankfully it’s just for a short time…1-2 episodes…so thatt’s fine, but she can then disappear like most of Brooke’s children.
Just keep her away from Liam. He’s not been sappy since Hope’s been gone. Liking him much better!

I don’t want more of Hope and the love triangle. I thought Wyatt was a great match for her because he never faltered from loving her. Her constant longing for Liam while she married him really turned me off to her character. Wyatt deserves better. I am sure she will hand him divorce papers and help her crazy mom and go back somewhere. Now if we can get Brooke’s crazy son, Rick, to go with her!

hope and liam belong together. they had there ups and downs but so do most couples. i hope returns to soap land because we need some romance back to daytime.

Phoebe

I disagree totally!! Hope is the main character, without her the shows way less interesting. Her and Liam are the dream couple and the writers need to stop messing around and let them be together fir once in a blue moon. All this ivy and steffy stuff is just stupid. Bring Bach hope and bring back Lope! Although three girls fighting for Liam would be an exciting and new twist to the useful a triangle……..

I think she will only stay long enough to give Wyatt divorce papers and help her mother, then she will leave again. I kind of hope she does leave again because although Liam is with Ivy now I would like to see him back with Steffy.

anthony satalino
Guest

ivy is kind of too weak to be with liam . she needs to be more aggresive and she is just kind of wishy washy. maybe her character will change later.

Pepper
Guest
Pepper

Why do you think Ivy is wishy washy? She’s one of the few people that has told Rick and Maya off. Even told Maya to rub her feet. She was sticking up for Ally who is quite wishy washy….. I think Liam and Ivy are cute together. I have liked Liam’s character alot more since he’s seemingly moved on and not manipulated by crazy women that don’t know what they want. Ivy truly loves him. Let Brooke become sober, strong and run Forrester Creations…..forget about a man in her life. It degrades her character. Let’s see more of Carter!!!!!!!

I hope Kim will come back to the show fulltime, coz she’s such a fantastic actress. She has great potential and there’s no one who can play a better Hope than Kim. I hope ‘Hope’ will be back to help her mom 🙂

I’m thrilled that she’s back – even for a short visit. I wish it was more permanent. I think either she’s back to support Brooke or Rick or maybe KM is back to support real best friend Linsey G.

Just so glad and again – wish it was permanent – miss her so much on the show.

I agree with you jaybird Let her come long enough to find some sort of positive closure witn Wyatt, baby-sit Brooke before she turns into a full fledged drunk, and then send her on her way. I am quickly becoming a Liam and Ivy fan, and if they turn Hope’s return into atriangle, I will throw my remote through my TV set. A d when she leaves she can take big brother Rick and his girlfriend Maya with her. I cannot beleive they are quicklh turning Ally into a lap dog.

She (KA) apparently denied that rumor anyway—but of course, that wouldn’t necessarily mean it wasn’t true.

The character of Hope needs to in story full time, played by Kim or someone else.

Brett
Guest
Brett

Why do we need her? I can’t understand how anyone could like her, she was the complete focus of the show and it was the most boring, long, drawn out storyline ever. I don’t think they should ever bring her back or recast the role, the show is far better without her.

jaybird369
Guest
jaybird369

Brett…A-M-E-N!!!!! I feel the same way. For almost 5 L-O-N-G years, that Kim Matula chick (and her totally ho-hum B&B character Hope) made me want to watch B&B less and less. And…more and more, Hope’s stupidly sugary behavior and personality made me wanna R-U-N to my dentist’s office for an emergency dental appointment…L-O-L!!!!! So, now…for the first time in quite a while, I feel like I can fully watch and fully enjoy B&B without that self-righteous and annoying Hope whiningly dominating my TV screen. Brett, most of all, that it so true…I (also) think that B&B should N-O-T recast the… Read more »

Oh NO!!!! First Brooke is back now Hope and this Maya business. Looks like I may be tuning out for awhile. Only reason to stick around now is for Bill & Katie and Ridge and Caroline especially Ridge (and Caroline too of course) Sorry but I like men that look like men. The rest of the cast has gone nuts. What is up with Eric? It is just too much how he puts up with Rick.

If she’s not coming back to stay then what’s the point?i would like her to come back but it only gets harder to recast if she shows up now & then. Either come back even on a limited basis or give the fans time to get used to a recast.

They ruined Steffy this time around. Its beyond lame that these women hold torches for that idiot Liam.

PLEASE don’t bring Hope back, the show has proved it doesn’t need to rely on tired triangles to be entertaining.

I agree with you R8b The minute I heard she was coming back I immediately j6mped ahead to a Liam Hope Ivy triangle, and there is no way that I will sit through that anytime soon I qas enjoying things quite nicely without her. The rest of the incredibly talented cast was finally able to start working again

I like Kim and Hope, but if she’s only coming for one episode, I would prefer she and the character not return. Recast if Kim isn’t willing to commit to a contract.

Mary SF

I have enjoyed the show now her character isn’t the only focus of the show- glad to see Brad force to write for someone else other than Hope. But the character is a legacy character and a soap’s future depends on retaining their legacy characters, so I’m glad Hope is still an option. If she plans to return full time some day then quick visits now and then keeps the character in viewer’s mind, but if they are going to recast at some point, it is better if she stays away— it just confuses the issue when the recast is… Read more »

Kim is always welcomed back in my book, but she has the talent to do so much more than what the B&B is offering. I hoping she books a primetime series this year. I would love to see her playing a witch or a vampire.

The only reason I have stayed with the show after she left because they said she may be back so I have waited to see, I am thrilled to have her back I just hope she stays, if she does I will keep watching, OTHERWISE? She don’t have to be with Liam opr Wyatt, just let her do HOPE FOR THE FUTURE and let a new man come along just for her.
PLEASE.

its great to see Hope back even if its just for one episode because they really did kind of rush hope off screen and whilst Hope and Liam may have had some kind of closure on things I think I want to see hope and Wyatt confront each other and to officially end there marriage on a good note if that’s even possible, there needs to be forgiveness on both sides. I also would like her to give a lesson in morality to her brother Rick and I want hope to give a lesson to Brooke on being alone and… Read more »

Absolutely love the idea to have Kim Matula back as Hope Logan in any way. According what we have now, Steffy took her plane back to Paris and Liam’s not dealing with LIVYvsLEFFY problem. From the other hand Hope’s dad just got engaged to Quinn, so Hope’s return might have something to do with it too. Add Brooke’s drinking problem (per spoilers Brooke gets injured when she falls down). Spoilers don’t say a thing about Hope and Wyatt’s marriage. It won’t be the first time for Wyatt to think he lost Hope…and the opposite to happen. About Steffy- we didn’t… Read more »

I am glad Kim is back. She is a great actress and did ghe best she could with her character, considering the writing that was done for her. I’m betting the show would have never lost “Hope” had the writer’s finally let Hope and Liam have their happy ending some time ago!

I will be brief and to the point with all the KM aka Hope haters out there. At the end of the day the main reason why Bell convinced Kimberly Matula to comeback is because a recast will not be acceptable in his eyes. In other words, in Bell “eyes” Kimberly Matula is “Hope Logan”. PS. Go back and watch that defining moment Bell had for Lope. It doesn’t matter if your are a Lope, Hottmess ,Slime or Livy fan, the message Bell sent to the audience was crystal clear folks that Liam & Hope are soul-mates and will never… Read more »

B&B had become the ‘Hope Logan Show’, and while I like the character, it was all Hope for far too long. It’s been nice to have other characters front and center. I hope her stay is short-lived.
On another note, what is it with the Bell soaps and their continued morbid desire to kill unborn children?!? It was Steffy and Hope on B&B, and now Christine on Y&R?!? Why make characters pregnant if there’s no chance of it going full term. It’s absolutely ridiculous in my opinion.

Ivy is a breath of fresh air compared to whiney Hope who could not make up her mind and Steffy the tiger who goes after what she wants no matter who she hurts. Kim Matula wanted a career in Hollywood and obviously that did not work out thus she comes back to B&B…….. she made a dumb decision which obviously she now regrets……………Let well enough alone and let Liam have some peace with someone with a heart and a sweet one at that. Liam is a fool if he takes her back after the way she pitted him against Wyatt… Read more »

Lori Loughlin Returns To Acting; Set To Reprise ‘When Calls The Heart’ Role in GAC Family’s ‘When Hope Calls’

Former Fuller House, Edge of Night, and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin, has landed her first acting role since jail time and her part in the College Admissions Scandal; where she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid half a million dollars in bribes to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, accepted into the University of Southern California.

While, Jade is now also in this season’s Dancing with the Stars, now comes word that Loughlin has gotten her first acting gig since all the legal trouble, and while still on probation following her two months in jail.

Look for Lori to reprise her beloved role of Abigail from When Calls the Heart on its season two spin-off on GAC Family, When Hope Calls.

According to Deadline: Loughlin will appear in the two-part Season 2 premiere titled When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas, to air on Saturday, December, 18th.  Lori was last seen on TV as Abigail in Season 6 of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart before she was let go over her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Last week, speculation began that Loughlin may be back working after a report surfaced from Mercury News  that she had been granted permission by a Boston federal judge to travel to Canada for about a week in late September-early October for “a filming production project.”

So, what do you think about Lori’s return to acting following serving jail time? Will you be watching her as Abigail on When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas? Comment below.

Cheryl Burke Tests Positive for COVID-19 Ahead of Tonight’s ‘Dancing with the Stars’

Dancing with the Stars’ Cheryl Burke announced via an emotional Instagram video on her account on Sunday that she was not feeling well, and tested positive for Covid-19.  Burke had been vaccinated and is another breakthrough Covid case.  Burke had been fully vaccinated via Moderna.

Burke’s diagnosis means that she must quarantine for the next ten days and will miss tonight’s second episode of the new season of the ballroom-dance competition series.  She has been partnered with Pelonton’s Cody Rigsby.

How will Burke’s departure affect Rigsby in terms of the competition? ABC says it will address it on Monday’s night’s show.  However Good Morning America” reported that Rigsby has been tested for COVID-19, and if he comes back negative he will perform with an alternate pro dancer.

It is now also most certain that Burke will miss next week’s show as well.

In her post, Cheryl shared to her fans she was on her way to get a Covid test, then she shared after getting tested: “I am positive which means I have Covid.”

She went on to say, “It’s so overwhelming because it’s Sunday and the show’s tomorrow. I figured I should let you guys know since I’ve been as open and as a real and as vulnerable as I could be here.  I just hope I didn’t spread it. For those of you who don’t think COVID is a real thing, it’s f–king real, dude.”

The pro dancer also related how upset she was to let her celebrity partner, Cody Rigsby, down by having to exit the show for now.

So, what do you think about Burke’s exit from the series and her emotional message? You can watch it below. Then, share your thoughts via the comment section.
