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.

They shared: “Our mother was a loving and supportive wife, mother and grandmother.  Gracious and kind, she enriched the lives of all who knew her. We will miss her tremendously.”

Born in Chicago, Illinois on June 9, 1928, Bell was co-creator, along with her late husband William J. Bell, of two of daytime television’s most successful dramas: The Young and the Restless (Y&R), and The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B).

A pioneer in the evolution of the afternoon talk show format, Bell was a trailblazer in the exploration of timely social issues and concerns.  Additionally she produced and narrated numerous award-winning specials and documentaries covering social concerns such as foster children, the subject of rape, children and divorce, and babies born to women in prison, to name a few.. Bell interviewed heads of state such as Presidents Gerald Ford and Ronald Regan; film actors Judy Garland, Clint Eastwood and Jerry Lewis; musicians such as The Rolling Stones and The Beatles; television and stage stars such as Lucille Ball, Jack Benny and Oprah Winfrey; and many other politicians, authors, journalists, fashion designers and rock stars.

She was awarded 16 regional (Chicago) Emmy awards and numerous Golden Mike awards. Bell is also the recipient of the Alfred I. Dupont/Columbia University Award for the special The Rape of Paulette, the first program in Chicago to explore the issue.  In 1977, she was the first woman to receive the coveted Governors Award from the Chicago chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.  In 1980, she was named “Person of the Year” by the Broadcast Advertising Club of Chicago and the “Outstanding Woman in Communications” by the Chicago YMCA.  She also received the Salvation Army’s William Booth Award for her distinguished career in communications and social service. Bell won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series as co-creator of The Young and the Restless in 1975 and was recipient of the Daytime Emmys’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007.
