The rex and gigi scene trying to get shane off the ledge broke my heart. I was crying uncontrollably. I love when oltl gets me to bawl my eyes out. Its not very often. Farah Fath deserves some praise.

outstanding and Emmy worthy. OLTL has done what the other soaps have not. that is giving us a fresh story which is painful and powerful… the writing is the best out of the 3 abc soaps… sh-sh we dont want Frons to know-he’ll force the writers to write for Gh … he doesnt care about the other soaps only GH.. He has an agenda. and i hope we shut him down before he cancels OLTL… wow how sad… please write Frons boss. or sign on line petition to fire Brian Frons anne.x.sweeney@disney.com

Great storyline, great writing, great acting–and then OLTL is canceled?! This cast, this crew, these writers consistently produce quality and deserve better.

I love Austin Williams. He’s fantastic. I felt so bad for him when GIGI died. Now Rex is going to ruin things for him. Rex thinks he’s doing something right.

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.
