Rome Flynn Joins The Cast Of The Bold and the Beautiful!



Casting news today that is sure to shake things up for Nicole Avant (Reign Edwards) and the Forrester fam!  The Bold and the Beautiful has cast former VH-1’s Drumline: A New Beat, star Rome Flynn in the role of a SORAS’d Zende!  Viewers who watched”Drumline” know that Rome played the part of a gay drummer named Leon.

According to TV Insider’s Michael Logan, Zende, who was the AIDS orphan from Africa who was adopted by Kristen Forrester (Tracy Melchior) and her husband, Antonio Dominguez (Paulo Benedeti) in the 2001-02 storyline returns to Los Angeles all grown up and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) and Pam (Alley Mills) want him to be an intern at Forrester Creations.

Immediately tension and sparks fly between Zende and Nicole, since she also wants the internship at the fashion house! Guess Wyatt (Darin Brooks) and Nicole may not be the end game here?  Stay tuned!

So, what do you think of the grown-up Zende returning to the B&B canvas in the form of Rome Flynn? Comment below!

Interesting. Wouldn’t mind seeing Kristen and Diego (was that his name?) back?

well i guess this means that nichol will be stickinh around for a while – thanks michael!!

What about Lawrence St Victor, he is like the black Thorne. give him something to do already!!

Loving the diversity and hiring of African American actors and actresses!!! BOLD is leading the pack these days(Dayzee, Marcus, Carter, Maya, Nicole, now Zende) sad that Y&R use to have the strongest afro-american storyline and now it’s hangin on for dear life. I always wondered if they were going to bring this character back, I am all for the addition of a black Forrester!!! Hopefully he will interact with Aly and Oliver too!!!! On a side note, I hope Kristen will be making an appearance. I miss her and Felicia!! They could age Felicia’s son with Dante, Dominic!!! The future of BOLD is bright, they have many young characters STILL that could be brought into story….Jack Marone, RJ Forrester, Rosey Forrester, Lil Eric, Logan Knight, Erica Warwick…the list is endless!!!!


Rosey, short for Ambrosia, is Marcus and Amber’s child.

But Richard, you can’t count Dayzee and Marcus as part of the cast anymore, they’ve been off for more than a year, possibly two.

Amber’s daughter with Marcus. Since Eric adopted Marcus, Rosey is a Forrester.

This is good news, I’m glad they are deciding to expand the Forrester family and bring back a character fans are already familiar with, instead of a newly created role with no ties to the show. This also adds to the African-American set on the show, since we never get to see Marcus and Dayzee anymore. The show should also consider bringing back Felicia’s son, Dino, and SORAS-ing R.J. (who should have been SORAS’d when Ridge returned).

He was, but only to age 10, he should be 2 or 3 years younger than Hope. I wish they would, but since TK took over the character of Ridge, they have trashed the Ridge and Brooke love story to the point where I wonder will they end up together. If Ronn Moss was still Ridge, he would’ve never been paired with Katie OR Caroline!! Gross!!!!

I am glad to see B&B acknowledge there are other Forresters on the family tree. Thank you!

Why do we need yet another character on this over-bloated show? It’s a 30-minute show and we don’t see half the characters they have now.
And if this means that the awful Nicole is sticking around, NOT happy!

its probably a sign that some characters might be leaving the canvas my money is on Aly & Oliver.

this is amazing Caroline & Steffy are returning this month they have put a casting call out for Thomas so he’s returning at some point to & Zende is returning this is awesome I might be wrong but wasn’t it Antonio that was HIV positive???

Why are they hiding the fact that Zende is the adoptive son from Africa that had the AIDS epidemic. Both his biological parents died from AIDS. Does he carry the virus too? Maya is so called transgender and now there is a possibility that down the line it will be revealed that Zende is HIV positive after he’s intimate with Nicole? Wouldn’t put this past Bell to stir up fans. I do wonder why these issues only target visible minorities like Tony Dominguez having HIV and then adopting Zende, who can potentially be a carrier who will subsequently put Nicole at risk.

It’s odd that a Forrester would hide who they are. Usually they’re so proud. Every other new Forrester coming in as a intern never hid who they were, which leads me to believe that something is up with Zende. Seems like both Avent sisters will have difficult roles laced with touchy subjects to conquer. We can rest assure that once again the Forrester’s will be the wonderful and accepting ones who will have no issue with this, but will somehow find some other reason to fly the coup. After all, the Forrester’s have a reputation to uphold. Why would they be with someone transgender not that there is anything wrong with it, but the way they characterize the Forresters as this traditional family with an image to uphold, it seems unnatural for them to be this accepting.

For some reason as accepting as they appear to be something always happens to distance them from the issues they accepted so much. The person moves to another city as in the case with Tony and Kristen Forrester since he’s living with the virus. Rick apparently accepts Maya, yet Maya is MIA leaving the blame on her if the relationship falls apart, and not that she’s transgender.

The writers somehow changed Rick’s personality as accepting of Maya and her secret while showing him as a man who can’t tolerate secrets from others. Ultimately, whether or not Rick accepts Maya as transgender verbally, I would be surprised to see them in another love scene after this reveal. They have accepted, now go away, right?

The character does not have the virus both his parents did and died and then Tony who has the virus and his wife Kristen adopted him I think they met him in Africa on their honeymoon. He is obviously being written in for a love interest for Nicole but no he does not have the virus. Hope this helps!!!

‘The Talk’ Renewed For 15th and Final Season to End in December; Does Its Cancellation Make Room for ‘The Gates’?

Things just got very interesting over at CBS daytime with the announcement today that The Talk is going to end its run on the network after its 15th season, and that season looks to be shortened as the series will come to its conclusion in December of 2024.

In a joint statement, Amy Reisenbach, President, CBS Entertainment and David Stapf, President, CBS Studio, shared, “The Talk broke new ground when it launched 14 years ago by returning daytime talk to CBS with a refreshing and award-winning format. Throughout the years, it has been a key program on CBS’ top rated daytime line-up as it brought timely, important and entertaining topics and discussions into living rooms around the globe.”

Reisenback and Stapf added, “It goes without saying that hosting and producing a year-round talk show is no easy task, and we express our sincere gratitude to our amazing hosts Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood, our Executive Producer/Showrunner Rob Crabbe and the hardworking producing team and crew.

Giving props to those who co-hosted or worked on the show through the years including: Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen Moonves, Carrie Ann Inaba Leah Ramimi, Marissa Janet Winokur, Holly Robinson Peete and Sharon Osbourne, the joint statement added, “We also want to acknowledge our former show hosts and colleagues who contributed throughout the seasons. We truly appreciate the skill, creativity, and dedication everyone involved brought to the show every day.  And of course, we thank the numerous guests who appeared, and the millions of viewers who tuned in daily. For the final season, we plan to celebrate the show and give it the proper sendoff it deserves when it concludes in December 2024.”

While no firm decision or announcement has been given at this time, it seems most likely that The Talk’s time slot could be given to the new soap opera in development The Gates from CBS Studio Ventures and from longtime soap opera writer. Michele Val Jean.  As previously reported, The Gates features the lives of a wealthy Black family who reside in a posh, gated community.

The Talk was originally the brainchild of Sara Gilbert, who had developed the show when it launched back 2010 and it replaced the beloved As the World Turns which went off the air after 54 years when CBS canceled it.

So, what do you think of The Talk being canceled? Will this make room for The Gates to begin to air in its spot beginning in 2025? Share your reactions to the news via the comment section.
