Pierson Fodé Exits The Bold and the Beautiful!

Another fine young actor has decided to leave the daytime drama arena. This time it’s The Bold and the Beautiful’s Pierson Fodé (Thomas).

There had been much speculation over the last few months that Pierson was indeed planning to exit the CBS soap opera since he has been very busy filming other projects.

The news was confirmed today via Soap Opera Digest.

Fodé revealed, “I’ll tell you what. As far as my time goes in L.A., this has been one of the hardest decisions I’ve made.”

Pierson spent the last two-and-a-half years playing the pivotal role of Thomas Forrester, and apparently has already filmed his last episode.

So sad to hear Pierson is moving on from B&B?  Comment below!

That’s a shame. He was the best Thomas so far and had great chemistry with the other actors.

I totally agree Kim…Pierson has been my favorite actor playing Thomas and I love him and Sally together…I wish Pierson the best with his future endeavors…

Best wishes to the actor but the character should’ve been written out after he had raped Caroline. We saw what happened but then Bell tried to whitewash what was the exact same thing as the Stanford Swimmer. In an interview Michael Logan dragged Bell for this but sadly Bell was utterly tone deaf about rape To add insult to injury B&B made Caroline pregnant & broke up Caridge in one single episode. When Bell wrote off the talented Linsey Godfrey he said in his SOD interview it was because he didn’t want Thomas tied down to a kid. Well, guess… Read more »

i have to agree with you, Denise, on one thing and that is how quickly characters are gaga over each other. Thomas and Sally barely knew each other and yet they were ready to die for each other and we were supposed to root for them. I couldn’t find any root value because I I didn’t have any time invested in them. I do like both characters but trying to buy them as a “supercouple” was something i wasn’t able to do. Maybe if they recast Thomas and give the new actor time to find his footing (if the show… Read more »

Denise…oh, I agree. THE FNAL STRAW for me was when Bill talked Caroline into going along with that IDIOTIC plan (pretending and all) that Caroline herself was dying so that Thomas would leave Sally and go back to Caroline. Really and truly dumb.

Take care, Denise.

Thank you, Denise! I agree with so much of what you say in your post. Caroline, like so many B&B characters, serves no purpose. In this world where corporate power is traded day to day and no one has any real romance or marriage or commitment, characters are but shells moved along for plot devices, not genuine stories. And the hypocrisy of the characters as they endlessly talk and talk. This actor is handsome and talented. And I liked him with nuSally. My hope was a serious story of Romeo & Juliet romance along with that of a man finding… Read more »

Yes, you are right. It is the worst soap that I’ve watched & I’ve watched many, all of ABC soaps & Y&R too. It is all about flashbacks and daydreams. All of which they have about 20 minutes each day to air. Stupid love triangle after triangle and the same characters day in and day out. I really should not even waste my time. Been watching B&B since 2007.

I am sorry to see him go. I hope that the role is recast, so that Thomas and Sally can finally be together. They have had a problem keeping someone in the role of Thomas for some reason.

Would have been much better if he had left awhile back. Hes been phoning in his role for a good while. It was obvious that it no longer was what he wanted. The fans deserve better than lackluster efforts by their actors. He and Rome both needed to go.

Recast wish: Marco Dapper.( ex Carmine, y n r) Sauve and sexy. He could be future leading man for b n b. ..and another y n r alumn..Redaric Williams( ex tyler) as Zende recast. B n b loves rehiring y n r actors so keep the tradition going.

This is a Big blow for the show. Especially with the popularity of Thomas and Sally and the roots that relationship has with the show. If they intend to recast they need to take their time and get it right. I heard Hope may be reappearing and Zende leaving its a pivotal time for the show for sure.

Daytime is losing a lot of its young talent. It”s sad for us, but when opportunity knocks when you are young, you have to answer it. He was the best Thomas and as someone said, he had/has chemistry with everyone. I also hope they recast the role.

Hopefully they don’t get rid of him by him falling in love with Caroline and getting them both to leave town. I love Caroline with Ridge and Sally should be with Thomas so please bring in a new Thomas.

Bold and the beautiful has become through the years the worst and most unwatchable soap . the endless , tiresome triangles and breakups over and over again … Brooke and Bill again and again … the cartoonish and ridiculous new spectras . Just hookups , how we dress , how we look : these are the only things with this soap . The storylines are boring , cliché , superficial and predictable . Sheila’s return was a flop … She died on young and restless , her own sister sara smythe confirmed she was dead and she is alive and… Read more »

I was so surprised to read this; remember seeing an interview with him and the actress who plays Sally…they seemed to really enjoy their characters and their on-screen relationship. Disappointed; he’s a great looking guy who can act; he’s perfect in the role and lights up the screen. He and “Sally” are adorable together. I guess great offers have been coming in and the time is right for him to grab other opportunities.

Best to him but sorry to see him go.

My best wishes to Pierson Fode in whatever he does and i’m sure he didn’t want to leave B&B but he had to make a choice about what was best for his career.Plus maybe he didn’t want to B&B in an uncomfortable situation where they had to work around his schedule in giving him time off.As for B&B, it wouldn’t surprise me if they recasted Thomas in the near future because when Thomas finds out that Caroline isn’t really dying and that Bill, Steffy and Liam knew he may not be happy with them.

I agree with you about Myas family. By the way, did Nicole ever sign the papers regarding thebaby? I to was upset about Thomas in bed with Caroline. I wish tey left her with Ridge and made the baby Ridge’s. I was mad when they broke up Ridge and Caroline. I liked the pairing of Thomas and Sally. I also love the pairing of Katie and Wyatt. I think they have terrific chemistry. I say bring me more. I can’t wait for papa Bill to get wind of the happy couple. I guess if Bill can take Katie’s sister, she… Read more »

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Former ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood Comes Out as Gay

This morning on the highly-promoted sit-down interview with GMA’s Robin Roberts, former ‘Bachelor’ lead Colton Underwood, revealed that he was gay and that he has finally come to terms with it.

The ex-football star shared: “Obviously this year’s been a lot for a lot of people, and it’s probably made a lot of people look themselves in the mirror and figure out who they are and what they’ve been running from or what they’ve been putting off in their lives. For me, I’ve ran from myself for a long time and I’ve hated myself for a long time, and I’m gay. I came to terms with that that earlier this year and have been processing it. The next step in all of this was sort of letting people know. I’m still nervous, but it’s been a journey for sure. I’m like the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. That means the world to me.”

Underwood expressed he went through a very dark time to be able to reveal his truth: “I got into a place in my personal life that was dark and bad. I can list a bunch of different things, but they’d all be excuses. I think overall the reason why now is because I got to a place where I didn’t think I was ever going to share this. I would rather have died than say ‘I’m gay,’ and I think that was sort of my wake up call. There was a moment in L.A. that I woke up and I didn’t think I was going to wake up,” he said. “I didn’t have the intentions of waking up, and I did. And I think for me that was my wake up call, that, ‘This is your life. Take back control.’ I think looking back even beyond that is… even just suicidal thoughts and driving my car close to a cliff, like, ‘Oh, if this goes off the cliff, it’s not that big of a deal.’ I don’t feel that anymore.”’

As to the questions or anger that ‘Bachelor Nation’ are going to have that Underwood misled the female contestants on his season, or he duped the audience, Colton said: “I thought a lot about this…Do I regret being ‘The Bachelor?’ And handling it the way that I did?’  I do think I could have handled it better, I’ll say that. I just wish I wouldn’t have dragged people into my own mess of figuring out who I was. I genuinely mean that, but also at the same time I can say ‘I’m sorry’ to all of those women, I can also say ‘thank you,’ because without them and without the ‘Bachelor’ franchise, I don’t know if this would have ever come out.”

Colton was highly-promoted during his season as the “Virgin Bachelor”.  He acknowledged he was indeed a virgin at that time, but it was because he was gay, but just “didn’t know how to handle it”.   Underwood also shared he was thankful to God that he was cast on the reality-competition as one of its season’s leads because he thought that would make him straight.  He told Roberts in his talk with God, ‘Finally, you’re letting me be straight. Finally, you’re giving me a wife, a fiancée, and then I’m going to have the kids, then I’m going to have the house, and then I’m going to have all this.’

As to his contentious break-up with ‘Bachelor’ contestant, Cassie Randolph, where she had at one time had a restraining order put on Underwood and later revoked it, he admitted: “I would like to say sorry for how things ended. I messed up, I made a lot of bad choices.”  But told Robin Roberts, he indeed loved Cassie, sharing, “That only made it harder and more confusing for me. if I’m being very honest, I loved everything about her. And it’s hard for me to articulate exactly what my emotions were, and going through that relationship with her was, because I obviously had an internal fight going on. I would just say that I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart. I’m sorry for any pain and emotional stress I caused. I wish it wouldn’t have happened the way it did. I wish that I would have been courageous enough to fix myself before I broke anybody else.”

Underwood shared that his upbringing in the Catholic church and being in the world of high school, college, and pro sports contributed to why he never came out previously, citing,: ” learned in the Bible that gay is a sin. I had made mistakes in my sports and in my athletic career, and when you make mistakes, ‘that play was gay’ or that was a bad… gay was always affiliated with a connotation of negativity, and I think there’s a lot of things when I look back, like, ‘No wonder I held it in.’”

So, were you surprised that Colton revealed he was gay? How do you feel about the journey he expressed in his interview on GMA to speak his truth? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
