As long as we can get Todd back in his penthouse, I’m happy. 😉

Never forget .. Todd, RH, did not sign on with PP when OL ended..
He did not want to go on with PP ..
I doubt he will now..
If Asked I’d bet he will say no as he did the first time..

just because some/most want him back does mean he wants to be with PP online ..

I read that Prospect Park is going to let ABC keep the characters.

BOTH R.H. and TSJ declined PP’s last invitation to go on line with them. I think there will be NO TOD or VICTOR even though the cliffhanger had him ALIVE at end of OLTL. sad 🙁

it’s always possible that Todd or Victor will be a recast on OLTL. If we get to keep the name of Todd Manning on GH, then I’d guess they’d have at least Victor found on OLTL since that was part of the cliffhanger.

I am so thrilled to Thom for posting this video. I hope he will continue these little teasers right up to the time the show hits the web.

I want Todd to stay at GH..
That is why the writers will give him a different name (other than Todd Manning) so he can stay in GH until all is settled..
I have thought about it and that is where they are going..
Todd will fake (again) DID and become ‘whomever’ and thus not being the Todd character that PP owns but a different name/character.. .
and when all is legally settled over the characters, and GH wins,, he will become Todd again..

They must bring the vets to the forefront of the show and not try to cram a bunch of younger newbies down our throats or the show will fail !

OL will now be on internet and via Smart Tv’s and internet devices, apps etc..
Yes, they do indeed want to attract new and younger viewers..
The seniors are not the priority:) of course they want all fans back, no doubt of that, but they also want and need a new audience..
It is no longer all about us 🙁 it is about the down the road future to PP ..

Love it. OLTL is the future, yet structured and centered around the classic, traditional soap genre. Fans are ready for April! Let the countdown begin!

I feel the war of the two Todds(1 really twin named Victor) would have been dynamite drama for the show but i doubt either will return plus i havent heard either actor agreeing to return to what isnt proven successful just yet. I want them to succeed but what if some fans dont like what they see and the shows dont meet PP expectaions. These shows may start out with a bang with some watching out of curiousity but that dont mean theyll stick with it and we could loose it again. I want them back and do have high… Read more »

everyone needs to realize a lot of these actors have moved on, no fault of their own. Who would have thought these shows would be resurrected a year later? I dont blame any of them if they dont come back. There is something to be said about the half hour format, look at B&B and as awful as the writing and acting has become on that show its the most watched soap in the world. Go figure. Theres a good chance if these shows succeed online they may get a cable network to air them. bottom line, good writing plus… Read more »

I am excited about OLTL returning. (I still am not sure it is actually happening!) I am ready, too, for changes in Llanview. I do not expect to see on Prospect Park what I saw on ABC. Not everyone is going to return and we may have recasts or explanations that characters have left Llanview. I expect will we see a leaner, tighter production — already 30 minutes instead of 60 ticks. I expect a diffierent Llanview in that the producers and writers are now at GH. But we will see OLTL again and many familiar faces seem to be… Read more »

I take issue with his comment about being shot in Times Square. New York City is one of the safest cities in the world. A comment like that is not only inaccurate but perpetuates the stereotypes of the big city that people have concerning NYC. If that’s him being bold and exciting, I don’t think I’ll be tuning in.

I want the John McBain Character back to OLTL, he belongs with Natalie not Sam on GH. I feel FV/RC butchered the “JOLIE” story for GH ratings. I understand Michael Easton probably won’t come back, but OLTL won’t be for me if there is no JOLIE! Won’t be watching GH either, since I can’t stand to watch now.

no way do I want to see McBian becoming paint on wall with Natalie, they are a boring couple and not even hot lol
they were broken up/done when OL got canceled but to appease for the happy ever after stuff they were thrown together once again at the end:)
ME/John is alive and the best I have seen being in 10yrs,, He is awesome and vivid on GH.. GH gave him life!!
OLTL will just make him Nats pet .. John is not a family man.. he never has been and never should be a family man 🙂

So that goes for GH too right, no family. I guess he will have to find someone other than Sam then because she has Danny now. I hope John is back on OLTL and back together with Natalie and Liam where he belongs not playing vampire over on GH.

bold! innovative! exciting! that’s what they all say. how is it bold and innovative and exciting when the only recurring characters are the Indian americans? recurring means less storylines and therefore the racial minorities won’t get the same treatment as the white chars. that’s not bold and innovative and exciting. that’s regular and typical and dull. that’s stereotypical hollywood.

I just wanted to thank you for bringing our soap families back to life. I been a avid soap fan since the late 70’s and the last year was a bore without them. I can’t wait to watch them and just wanted to thank you again for all your hard work! I’m on several save the soap sites and know lots of people are thrilled to see our beloved soaps again. Much love and success from Texas! Always a fan Janna Johnson

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
