Keeping in line with their previous stunt castings of bringing over some current social media sensations to The Bold and the Beautiful (remember the Golden Globes Fiji Water girl?) comes word via TMZ, that actress Monica Ruiz, who played the wife in the controversial Peloton commercial, is set to tape scenes for an upcoming episode next Tuesday.

Ruiz is reportedly doing a one-day shoot and her appearance will air sometime in January. TMZ shares that if things go well,  and the audience takes to her, she could be back for more.

The ad which in which Ruiz appeared and garnered much backlash featured the actress as a wife, who is an already-fit mother who is beyond thrilled when her husband buys her a Peloton exercise bike for Christmas.

Next, she records her year-long fitness journey as a vlog, and then gives her husband the full video of it the following Christmas and thanks him for ‘changing’ her life.

Social media and critics took note and fired-back and accused Peloton of sexism, while still others interpreted Ruiz’s performance as a woman trying to deal with a case of emotional abuse from her hubby.

Right afterwards, Ryan Reynolds featured Ruiz in an ad for his gin company playing off the fact that she needed a stiff drink after all she has gone though.

Stunt casting is right. B&B does a lot of that.

If she can act and the role isn’t just something added in, I’m fine with it.

As for the ad, I thought it was a bit inane. I didn’t read as much into it when I saw it as others. I guess because I don’t analyze ads or I fast forwarded through it. Maybe she had a Peloton on her Christmas list. Who knows? Too much ado about nothing.

Mono…Agree with you. Way too much read into the ad. I for one would be thrilled if my husband bought me this type of bike for home. Usually not an inexpensive item, and I’m sure other family members would want to take a spin on it as well. And depending on her role on B&B, I would hope they would capitalize on Monica’s gift of playing it with her sense of humour. The show could really use it.

I read she plays a doctor and in the picture, she was in a scene with Flo.

There has long been stunt casting for decades…i remember watching Sammy Davis Jr. on Love Of Life back in the 70s…as the add goes whats wrong with it..just a fit person staying fit..anyway if they showed an over weight woman people would be outraged by that, saying her hubby has a problem and insulting his wife for being too over weight…people are outraged by every little thing,,,with mass shootings happening several times a year and in schools…our music movies and tv vulgarized with foul words, gross violence and women used as sex objects i say there are other things to be outraged over than a silly harmless add!!!!

JimL..Good to see you back. Add Elizabeth Taylor on GH opposite Luke. Monica is not Elizabeth but, depending who she’s playing and how they want her to play her role, she could bring a little much needed levity to B&B storyline. Or take us away from the constant musical chairs of if “love triangles” with main characters. Maybe help hope as a designer for Hope For the Future line. And I agree about what we show really be outraged about and could add a couple of more to your list.

Liz Taylor as the original Helena Cassadine had to be the ultimate in “stunt casting”. So successful that the first two or three attempts at a Helena recast never got off the ground. Constance Towers managed to pull off the role, but it took them 16 years to find her.

Roseanne Barr as Luke’s “ex wife” (and Frank’s daughter) Jennifer Smith in the mid 1990s was pretty good too, though that was more comic relief than a serious portrayal.

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
