The Bold and the Beautiful’s Maya (Karla Mosley) has gotten an on-screen younger sister in the form of actress Reign Edwards, who started work today on  the CBS Daytime soap opera!  And today also happens to be the 18th birthday for the actress … what a great way to celebrate!

Reign plays the contract role of Nicole Avant, and will debut sometime in January!

According to a chit chat with Soap Opera Digest, Reign revealed this about the character of Nicole: “I think Nicole is going to bring something pretty cool to the table for everybody. She’s Maya’s little sister, so they’re going to have some similarities but they’ll also have their differences, too. You’ll really get to see that.”

So will Reign be a little troublemaker like her big sis Maya? How will she play into the current storylines on the canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I’m no fan of her big sis, but if she had plenty of differences from Maya, I could come to like her. We’ll see.

Put her in a love triangle with Ally and Oliver…i read a lot of BBs fans love triangles…lol

Oh yeah, because 3 years of the Hope/Liam/Steffy madness and a year and half of Hope/Liam/Wyatt isn’t nearly enough to satisfy us. Especially since decades of Brooke/Ridge/Taylor didn’t precede the kiddie squad. Good lord, enough with the love triangles! But that seems like all Brad Bell knows what to write about.

I see her being put in Aly’s orbit and she might cause some trouble for Caroline (to help her big sister).

B&B put out a casting call for what sounded like RJ Forrester, so either they will pair them up, or this sounds like a rival for Aly, so we’ll be seeing a Nicole/Oliver/Aly triangle….she’s very pretty!!!!! uggh guess this means Maya is sticking around…..they need to get rid of her and bring back Kimberly Fairchild or Amber!!! I loved Rick and Kimberly back in the day!!!!!

Well if Maya is in the Rick/Caroline age bracket, then Nicole is in the Aly/Oliver/Ivy/Liam/Wyatt bracket. With Hope supposedly exiting the series, it could be a Aly/Oliver diversion and then later a new direction for Wyatt or Liam. Hoping she’s trouble. We need a good new young villainess to stir it up. And I am glad Maya’s family will be explored and expanded. She’s got a checkered past and I’m glad they are allowing cast members of color to grow beyond the token role and be real and vibrant (not always sainted or sexless) characters. Y&R has been better at… Read more »

I was hoping for less Maya, not more and not her family. I wish they had explored more with her ex, but that turned up to be a big dud.

Yes! I agree! Why would they hire Ricky Paul Goldin, a great actor with a past on daytime, as Maya’s ex for only two or three episodes?! They should have factored him in to current stories and kept him around. Terrible wasted opportunity.

Yes, this is exactly what we need, another Avant. Seriously, I don’t know when Maya became such a gold digger, but I’ve just about had it with her. I really hope her sister isn’t like her at all, or at least a milder version of her.

But to be honest, the last thing B&B needs right now is a new character, especially when Thorne, Taylor, Steffy, Thomas, Bridget, Nick, Jackie, Owen, and many others are on the sidelines. I would take the Marones back over Maya and her sister any day.

I soooooo agree Jimmy. They should be using core characters more including a new Hope, not a new character connected to Maya who needs to shut up! The show is only a half hour. Don’t need so see more Maya/sister scenes, LOL

Looking forward to seeing this beautiful young lady in her BB debut, hopefully she’s given some good material to work with. She might not have a fair shot, as you can tell by some of the comments, no matter what type of material they give her.

Good point Penny. It all depends on the material she is given. I do agree with the other comments, I have had enough of My a, but I am looking forward to her sister checking in.

I want to see Maya and her sister, this is a good thing to see more young diverse characters on the show It’s set in LA for goodness sakes.

Totally agree! A lot of those comments sound personal, almost as if they don’t understand someone is writing Maya the actresses material.

let hope go(should’ve been gone long ago!) I agree bring back the marones! funny how quin’s character gets to stay after crime incidents with liam and ivy had that been a diverse character they would have been gone by now!! ridge talks smack about maya but he’s done more bed hopping than a rabbit on crack!! hope they don’t make nicole’s character from only down and out begginings like dayzee and maya!! where’s marcus and justin? and steffie? c’mon writers! !!!

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Now share your remembrances of Gil’s performances and along with condolences for his family in the comment section.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
