Long-running Cast Members Katherine Kelly Lang and John McCook Close B&B's 30th Anniversary Episode With Special Moment!

Courtesy/CBS

It’s been an incredible few weeks of honors and parties, and episodes for CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful leading up to its 30th anniversary.

The show that premiered on March 23rd, 1987, shared a very poignant and special moment for its longtime viewers on Thursday’s anniversary episode. Long-running and enduring cast members, Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) and John McCook (Eric) have been with the series since its humble beginnings, where at one time the show was last-rated among all the soaps. Today, B&B remains in the second spot in the U.S., and is number one in many countries around the globe.

To honor Katherine and John and their characters Brooke and Eric, at the end of the 30th anniversary episode, the two share a nostalgic moment while in Australia sipping champagne on the beach. It’s McCook, always the stalwart of the series as Eric, who narrates the words of Brad Bell (EP and head writer, B&B) and his writing team about: the essence of The Bold and the Beautiful, the family legacies of the show and how Brook and Eric have survived it all through the good and the bad times and remained extremely close. The moment also includes a montage of Brooke and Eric through the years ending with them admitting their lives have been “bold” and “beautiful”.

Watch the scene after the jump!  Then let us know, if you were touched and happy that the series acknowledged Katherine and John as Brooke and Eric to close out the 30th anniversary episode of the series.  Comment below!

I will forever believe B&B missed a great opportunity when Stephanie Forrester died and Susan Flannery retired. Eric and Brooke should have found their way back to each other. The pairing would have given these two originals proper placement as the solid lead couple. And it would make perfect sense as Stephanie did in the end consider Brooke an heir of sorts. John McCook and Katherine Kelly Lang have such an ease and chemistry between them. It reminds me of AW’s Rachel and Mac. Maybe it still can happen. The Quinn-Eric coupling was surprising and fun but we did not… Read more »

Beautiful moment. Katherine and John were great and they truly deserved that moment. I’d like Brad to take this where both characters slowly discover they can be together and run Forrester which is what Stephanie wanted from brooke in the end. Ridge is a creep.

Such a nice touch to celebrate the 30th anniversary…So nice that John and Katherine are still with the show and it’s fitting to have them be the one’s on the beach to look back and remember/reflect on all the years.

It had all the S’s– sweet, soapy, sentimental and sincere— oh yeah SORASing– because the characters said they have known each other for 30 years, but their son is 36–conceiving a child without having met yet– that is something— LOL– of course Rick was born in 1990 and should only be 27 but was SORASed in 99 to 18—- which is why I hate it, it really pollutes the timeline and makes these moments of celebrations off– either do soap time or real time, not both at the same time, other than that– I loved the scene and agree with… Read more »

Darling you have been watching soaps forever and you know they screw with ages constantly it s the fantasy of a soap. Drives me crazy too and forgetting history etc but you just have to grin and go ok it Is a soap opera. I will say one thing time to let the character of Brooke grow up enough it’s the constant triangles she and Eric should be running Forrester because I will never feel TK is Ridge no reflection on the actor just Ronn Moss was Ridge! I think if Bill Bell had been alive their would have been… Read more »

I so totally agree April…KKL is long overdue for an emmy…To me she is as good as Heather Tom who I think is fantastic…Heather and Katherine both shine and are top notch actresses.

For me B&B is based upon the soap classic set-up of Romeo and Juliet and Brooke is Juliet. Nice to see Brooke and Eric have a quiet moment together. And I love the new/old title sequence.

To me Bold and Beautiful is how Y&R use to feel and I am so glad I can hear the beautiful background music from Jack Allocco and David Kurtz and wish they were back at Y&R.

Allocco’s music at Y & R was part of what made a scene great. And when they sparingly used Nadia’s Theme – forget it I was in tears. 1973 to 1984ish were my favorite years for stories but Allocco was always a treat

April, THANKS for understanding about the background music and YES, 1973-1984 with the Brooks and the Foster’s where fantastic and I will never forget the wonderful stories during that era…

And I agree that KKL should have an Emmy.

Anne Heche Final Autopsy Reveals No illegal Substances in Her System at the Time of Fatal Car Crash

The final autopsy report is in, which puts a bit more into perspective what happened to Daytime Emmy winner, Anne Heche (ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), when she crashed her car into a home back in August, which ultimately took her life.

It has been suggested for months that Heche was impaired while driving erratically on August 5th, which ultimately caused her to crash and suffer a life-ending brain injury.

However, the L.A. County medical examiner-coroner‘s office revealed that the final toxicology results (concluded from blood and urine tests taken when Heche went to the hospital) showed the presence of benzoylecgonine, an inactive metabolite of cocaine. That indicates past use, the examiner confirmed. Results also showed prior use of marijuana, but not at the time of injury. There was no alcohol detected in Heche’s system either.

There had been speculation that Anne was inebriated at the time of the accident which was further fueled by an image that appeared to show a liquor bottle in the front seat of her vehicle.  In addition, the Fentanyl detected in Heche’s system was administered in the hospital after her injuries were sustained.

The medical examiner had determined that Anne died of inhalation and thermal injuries. She was trapped in her Mini Cooper for around 30 minutes before she was rescued by first responders. The official report lists sternal fracture due to blunt trauma as another “significant condition.”

Heche was hospitalized immediately following the fiery car crash. She went into a coma and was declared brain dead the evening of August 11th.  However, her body was kept on life support until August 14th when her organ recipients had been found.  She was 53-years-old at the time of her death.

What do you think about the autopsy report on the death of Anne Heche and the ending of such a talented and respected actress? Comment below.

Tony Khan Confirms William Regal’s Exit from AEW to Return to WWE

On Wednesday, ahead of tonight’s AEW Dynamite on TBS, and to promote Saturday’s Ring of Honor Final Battle pay-per-view, AEW President Tony Khan spoke with the media and answered questions on several topics.

Chief among them is the status of William Regal who reportedly is heading back to the WWE.  In story, Regal was taken out by MJF on last week’s AEW Dynamite, after Regal helped MJF become the AEW World Champion during the main event at the Full Gear pay-per-view in November.   During last week’s episode, Regal was carried out of the ring by stretcher after being clobbered in the head from behind with brass knuckles by the new champ in another swerve.

Today on the media call, Khan reportedly explained the Regal situation sharing that Regal approached AEW executive Megha Parekh and requested to be released form his contract so he could go back and work his “golden years” coaching his son, Charlie Dempsey, and to the WWE.

This all went down around the time Khan was with his mother in Toronto, who was undergoing a major operation when doctors found that she had a spot on her heart and if the spot was removed, that it the best chance of stopping the strokes she was having.  She has already had two strokes, previously.

During this time, Khan arranged a call with Regal and shared that Regal had good intentions for wanting to go back. He was very empathic to the situation, given what he was going through with his mother and his own family at the time.

Khan added that Regal is still with AEW through the holidays, but he wishes William all the best and that it was “hard to see him go”, and they’re going to make some on-screen sacrifices to help him do the right thing for his family.  In addition, Regal’s release was on the condition that he could not be on TV next year, meaning Regal could then only work behind the scenes at WWE, anyway.

Tonight on ‘Dynamite’ look for Khan to address the William Regal situation.

Reports from Pro Wrestling.net, Fightful.com, David Bixenspan

So, what do you think of William Regal obtaining his release from AEW to go coach his son and return behind the scenes to work with the WWE in 2023? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
