Richard Burgi Shares His Take On His New Y&R Character, Ashland Locke, “Like Many Characters That Have Been Labeled as Nefarious, is Just Misguided.”

Soap opera veteran actor, Richard Burgi is set to make his Y&R debut today on the Thursday March 11th episode of the CBS daytime drama series.

Burgi, who has appeared in roles on General Hospital, Days of our Lives, Another World, One Life to Live and Desperate Housewives throughout this career, is now playing business tycoon Ashland Locke who really stirs the pot upon his arrival in Genoa City as it looks like three factions of the towns movers and shakers will be trying to negotiate a deal with the wily Locke.

In a new feature for CBS Watch heralding his arrival on the soap, Burgi shared on Ashland:  “He’s cagey. He’s worked hard. He’s gone through some tribulations and trials in his life, and I think he’s arrived at a place where he’s enjoying the fruits of his labors and the little quiver of arrows that he can throw at people in so as far as psychological manipulations in his world of big business.  He’s a terrific, personable, charming, intelligent, kind person… who, like many characters that have been labeled as nefarious, is just misguided. I think Victor Newman was castigated as a bad guy for a while. He’s just misunderstood!”

As to what will go down between Ashland and Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor), who has now been revealed to be the biological father to the son Locke thinks is his, Burgi weighed-in expressing: “Kyle’s like a lot of young men. They like take chances and risks. Sometimes that pays off… and sometimes it come back to bite you in the keester.”

So let us know what you think of Burgi’s new role when you check out his debut on Y&R via the comment section below.

I have not watched the show in forever I think Burgi is drop dead gorgeous but I don’t have much faith in the writers or certain actors that feel threatened by new people the sad thing over there is everybody is a newbie at one time . In reality to even think the character of Kyle the kid who was produced in a Petrie dish could be a challenge to his actor/character is laughable at best

Oh, I liked him on his first day in Genoa City and his interactions with everyone. As far as the business deal, I hope he picks Billy and Lily, as their reasons were better than the others which are just for control and to stick it to someone else. I think Locke is wise enough to see this. For the life of me I can not see why Sally has her nose into Kyle’s and Summer’s business. Bad enough we have to watch her leading poor old Jack around by his ????. As far as Locke’s son goes, why is… Read more »

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

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.
