Very good interview with Mr. Carlivati. I, too, love the complex relationship between Viki and Dorian, they are always a pleasure to watch. I think that Viki and Charlie are one of the best couples that One Life has these days and as hard as it has been to watch their relationship hit all these bumps in the road, I am looking forward to seeing what happens next. For me, it’s Viki and Charlie all the way, they truly belong together. Erika Slezak and Brian Kerwin have such a natural chemistry, they are a joy to watch as Viki/Charlie.

It’s quite sad to think that Mr. Carlivati obviously knew what was coming down the road for Kish yet never said a word to either of the guys (Scott & Brett). He refers to them as “minor” characters, yet they generated a huge fan base in just the few short months they were on OLTL, and actually only the 2-3 months they were a “couple.” How they can be referred to as “minor” characters when they are so loved by EVERYONE (not just the gay community)! Then we have Gigi, the absolute worst character on the show and the worst… Read more »

Wow, I 100% agree with every single thing in your post. I quit watching AMC a few yrs ago too.

The whole Gigi thing needs to go. She cannot act and is the worst actor on the show, hands down. Said it from day 1. I fast forward through all of her scenes.

Between that and getting rid of the KISH storyline, it is the start of the OLTL downfall = ( And I’ve been watching for 25 yrs now.

JARDO….i agree withh you 100% and ABC/OLTL is going to regret their decision to let their best couple go when their army of kish fans leave with them……it was the amazing chemistry between Brett Clayell and Scott Evans who made it so easy to fall in love with Kyle and Oliver and they were the best representation of true love on this show or any other on TV…..they are being scapegoated for ratings that were already dismal before they joined the show and in fact they brought many new viewers to it…and far from being minor characters on the show… Read more »

I enjoyed the interview but I was not one of the people who enjoyed the gay storyline. It was a bit too much for my taste with the gay wedding, gay rights, and gay sex. I do not mind KISH on screen as long as it is not being forced down my throat. Take “Modern Family” for example, a great show showcasing gays and I am not offended one bit. It is my favorite show. As for all the banter about Gigi, she is one of my favorite characters and the actress portraying her is one of the reasons.

I enjoyed the video intervew. I was not a huge fan of “Kish”, but it is always sad when actors are given the pink slip. With that being said, I am enjoying OLTL and love John/Natalie. Want more Jolie!! Lots, lots more!

Ilove Viki and Dorian, they are the best women rivalry on ABCD! I think one of the reason KISH didnot work was… they were actually kinda boring as a couple. I think Fish was better off without Kyle..Id would had liked him just fine being a cop who just happen to be gay.

B&B’s Kimberlin Brown and Tanner Novlan Talk on Sheila’s Motherly Love for Finn and the Next Move Against Steffy & the Forresters

The Bold and the Beautiful’s mother/son duo of Kimberlin Brown (Sheila Carter) and Tanner Novlan (Finn) chatted with Michael Fairman during a virtual interview for the Michael Fairman Channel; about the return of soap super-villain Sheila to the CBS daytime drama series, and its impact on newlyweds Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Finn, and their newborn son, Hayes.

When daytime fans learned that Brown was returning to B&B, they were very excited to see back on-screen as one of the greats, who’s character has caused so much trouble for the residents in both Genoa City 0n The Young and the Restless and in Los Angeles on The Bold and the Beautiful with her various crimes, deceptions, and plots over the years.

However, this time, viewers learned that Sheila is the biological mother of good doctor, Finn and her entrance into the story (at the wedding reception for Finn and Steffy) threw disruption into the lives of the Forresters and for her the son she never-got-to-know that she gave up at birth.

During this entertaining and candid conversation, Kimberlin and Tanner reveal many behind-the-scenes tidbits including: what went down during the  taping of the scenes where Finn learns Sheila is his mother as she steps out of the shadows, the confrontation at the wedding when the Forresters learned this shocking bit of intel, how Sheila plans to continue to manipulate and weave her way into her grandson and son’s life, and how she sees her vendetta with Steffy as an off-shoot of her vendetta with her grandmother, the late Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery).

In addition, Tanner weighs-in on Finn’s apparent ignorance of Paris’ (Diamond White) growing attraction to him, how that might trigger a Sheila/Paris partnership, or the possibility that Sheila does the unthinkable and somehow gets Steffy hooked back on opioids, or makes it looks like she has. There were many theories bantered about, and the actors share their speculative thoughts.
