Sean Kanan's Current Visit to The Bold and the Beautiful Has Come to an End!

Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

Yesterday, the talented Sean Kanan, who has been able to take the very dark Deacon Sharpe from soap to soap announced via his twitter page that his time as Deacon on The Bold and the Beautiful is over, even though to viewers he just recently started airing!  So what does this mean for Deacon’s impact on the story with Hope and Liam and Bill’s machinations?

Kanan tweeted, “I want to thank all of you for your support. Returning to Bold was a great experience. Apparently Deacon’s time there has come to an end.”

No final airdate has been announced for Kanan, but were soapers hoping his stay on the show would be more long term?  Let us know your thoughts!

No place for him on B&B anymore.

From what the grapevine says, HE was hoping to stay longer too but a certain co-star vetoed that for whatever personal reasons.
I personally never cared for Deacon and don’t know why he is so popular on either show but I do admit that seeing Hope revisit that history is a bit titillating (although it highlights how ridiculous the SORAS is).

i read that too & tptb & tiic should not have gone along with that co-star……………what a waste of talent!!

Sure wish they could resurrect AJ Quartermaine and give him the role. Back in the day, he was fantastic as AJ.

i really loved sean’s a j & yeah i wish he could be brought back only if sean could portray the character………..

I want him as AJ again too. He looks so much like Steve Burton.

WHACK! What’s the drama w/the drama? Gimme a break!! Deacon, Deacon, Deacon, Deacon!!!

So, I just read some gossip online & people are saying KKL wants SK out because she’s desperate to be part of a supercouple. If it’s true, I’ll say to that, it’s not about you KKL! Get a grip. She’s “Brooke” & that’s great but seriously, she’s dictating storyline now? …Not that great!

Everything over the last 20 some years of actors on this show who are involved with KKL & RM characters die. They are like watching paint dry he strokes her like a puppy dog NAUSEATING!!!!

I am talking about Ridge & Brooke I just want to vomit when I see them on screen!!!!


don’t think stars should be able to OUT themselves on twitter. it gives away the storyline to the fans. not right

I agree. With the Internet, a lot of stories are ruined. Like when we found out Eileeen was leaving Y&R. As soon as I heard that, I knew Ash and Tuck wouldn’t reconcile.

Exactly, Mo. And you don’t feel invested in watching that particular storyline either, if you know someone is leaving! I love suspense & wondering every day what will happen next. I don’t like spoilers. Remember cliffhanger Fridays everyone? Now ABC shows the promos for GH & ruins everything (for me, that is)

I completely agree. Besides the horrible writing, the other thing that I think is really killing the soaps is the rampant leaking of upcoming plots and their outcomes along with the coming/goings of actors on the shows. It is difficult to stay interested and anticipate an episode when we know the outcome in advance.

Other shows do things differently. This past season on “Celebrity Apprentice”, one episode was edited to give the impression that Aubrey O’Day walked off the show (which the next episode revealed was not the case). The day after, O’Day tweeted something to the effect that she stayed after that episode. O’Day’s tweet was removed within a matter of hours!! Other shows jealously guard against leaks.

One time I actually met a contestant on one of those reality game/show things (something like “The Bachelor” but can’t remember the title; the show flopped) before it aired. She said little to nothing about the show other than it was filmed in the Western US. She told me that there was a multi-million dollar penalty clause for disclosing info about it. I know that there would other issues (union rules, etc.) but couldn’t the soaps do something to shut down this flow of information? It would make it harder for sites like this to readily get “juicy” information but would make the shows more interesting.

The absolute WORST example of this: ATWT quit filming in June 2010 with the final episode airing in mid September 2010. Sometime in July, almost 2 months before everything had aired, the PRODUCER Chris Goutman gave an iinterview telling everything that was going to happen in the end!!!! I thought what he did was unforgiveable (maybe not as unforgiveable as the hack job that he and the writers did to that show but still bad!).

Barbara, agree–that thing about CA was bad. I couldn’t understand why Aubrey would post that. Let it play out on air so people would watch. Duh!

Part of these twits, I guess, is so the actors can let peeps know they’re available for jobs, but isn’t that what agents are for? They can advertise actors’ availability to the casting people without outing storylines.

I really hope Brad rethinks things on B&B. We’ve been overloaded with the the triangle of the next generation foreva. I don’t mind seeing it, but let’s have some other storylines. I still think he’s missing the boat not having Felicia and Thorne in story. Poor Thorne has to woo Taylor OFF CAMERA. He didn’t even get to appear when he sent her that chocolate fountain. And Thomas makes some quip about learning his lesson after being relegated to the basement. I thought, what about Thorne? He lives down there!

Im very upset by this! I was hoping he’d
Be around for awhile! What a shame! If
I was Brad Bell I would be ashamed of
Myself! He let something really good go!

Instead of the revolving door between Y&R and Bold & The Beautiful, why doesn’t he just talk to GH, and see if they can figure out some way to bring AJ back from the dead? I always enjoyed his version of that character. You’re never really dead on a soap opera, so figure out a way to bring him back.

That would be fantastic.

GH is waiting for him.

I hope so.

ME 3 !! LOL..

WHAT???!!!!! He’s only been on a couple days, but he scenes have been great and I can see so much potential for story, long term story. Does he even come into contact with Amber?

The whole dealyo with Bill blackmailing the warden into releasing Deacon is so stupid. Wardens don’t have control over when inmates are released. They follow court orders. If the warden knowingly released an inmate early, they would be punished. It would have been better for Bill to blackmail the governor who could pardon Deacon.

Odd. all the hoopla for his return and poof, he’s gone. Too bad.


Misfire, B&B. So much potential for Deacon’s return, in the person of Sean Kanan or another actor. He makes Brooke and others uncomfortable. He has a daughter and geez! If characters can rerturn from the dead and other such nonsense, then a man whose life has been a total con could give some riveting story in connecting with his now grown daughter. Or maybe he would turn tables on Bill Spencer and cause “the new Victor Newman” to take a fall or redirect his life and attentions or let go some of his vendettas (until the refire). There may be fireworks ahead for all we know, but again, this seems a waste of talent and another example of big announcements with little payoff.

Brad Bell is clueless. Sadly, this all part of a bigger problem that the soap has been going through for nearly a year–plots start, stop, and are all together dropped. There was Thorne and Taylor taking over FC, Rick and Amber taking over FC, Rick and Amber reminiscing and reuniting–all hinted at in interviews and subsequently killed before they even blossomed into a full-fledged storyline. Instead the entire show–every last conversation, even foreplay scenes between couples–has been given to the endlessly maddening Hope-Liam-Steffy triangle Don’t even get me started on the vanishing Marones–a HUGE mistake. Lesley-Anne Down is amazing, ageless, and beautiful–she deserved better.

Thank you Tom someone finally said something about LD she is gorgeous and a nice lady not to even give her a send off or JW was heartless, but Brad Bell has a long history of screwing over actors Crystal Chappell watch your back.

We all LOVE to see Deacon Sharpe, on Y&R or on B&B — PLEASE don’t take him away from us. I love to see the crossovers between the 2 shows. Don’t take the SEXY, SUAVE Deacon Sharpe away from us yet again!! He is a great actor as both the villain and the good guy,so give him a permanent, constant story line . We long term watchers appreciate the familiar faces and hate it when new faces come along, that’s what makes Y&R so great and the cross-overs to the B&B — PLEASE keep Deacon Sharpe!!


The Bold and the Beautiful’s Kimberlin Brown to Chat Live on the Michael Fairman Channel

For more than 30 years, Kimberlin Brown has portrayed soap opera super villain Sheila Carter. First, on The Young and the Restless, and then taking the character and crossing over to The Bold and the Beautiful.

Earlier this year in February, Sheila was supposedly ‘killed-off’ of B&B, only for it to be revealed in late April that it was not Sheila who was killed but her lookalike “Sugar.” Thus, Brown returned to B&B in all-new episodes and the character is back among the Forresters, the Logans and all of her enemies.

In story, Sheila just tied the knot with the love of her life, Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan) in a small ceremony attended by only Deacon’s daughter, Hope (Annika Noelle) and seemingly by happenstance, her bio-son, Finn (Tanner Novlan), causing a ripple effect in his marriage to Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).

AS B&B viewers know, it was Deacon who figured out that Sheila must be alive (10 toes vs. 9 toes) and went on a search for her. Together with Finn, they found her in an abandoned warehouse where Sugar had kidnapped her and then, brought her back to safety. But, will they ultimately regret saving her life?

So, what are Sheila’s plans now? How does Kimberlin feel about playing the evil Sheila who seemingly has nine lives? Find out when Brown visits the Michael Fairman Channel for a live one-on-one conversation this Friday, May 31st beginning at 7pm ET/4pm PT.

Previously, Brown told Deadline when she was informed that Sheila would be killed off, “Brad Bell (EP and head writer, B&B) called me upstairs to talk to me about what he had in mind for Sheila. It was a hard pill for me to swallow. It had been years of playing Sheila, and I consider her my baby, so to speak. And that was definitely not news I was anticipating or hoping to receive.” However, all’s well that ends well, as Brown shared she negotiated a new contract when viewers first saw her back on-air on the April 29th episode.

So, have a question you would like posed to Kimberlin during the live chat on Friday? Let us know in the comment section below, and what you think Sheila’s next plot will be now that she is hitched to Deacon?

Johnny Wactor’s Co-Worker, Anita Joy, Speaks Out For First Time Since His Fatal Shooting and Saving Her Life

Those who knew Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin, GH) were well aware of what an upstanding man he was. As tributes poured in when news that the General Hospital alum was shot and killed by one of three car thieves, they all spoke to his qualities as a human being.

Over the first 24 hours since his passing, the public learned Wactor lost his life putting himself in front of a female co-worker when confronted by his assailants, following their shift at a downtown LA bar. The thieves were attempting to steal his catalytic converter from his vehicle.

Now. Wactor’s former co-work, Anita Joy, has spoken out for the first time via her Instagram account of what happened on that fateful morning and her remembrances accompanied by photos and videos with Johnny.  As many now know, Johnny died a hero.

Anita began, “I’ve needed to take some time to collect myself and my thoughts. I was with Johnny in his last moments and I’m here to be his voice after such unimaginable events. His story is in this post as it happened, please swipe through the top photos and read it. Early Saturday morning (May 25) after our bartending shift Friday night at Level 8 in DTLA.”

“He was killed senselessly by a coward who reacted without care of the gorgeous life he was taking,” Joy shared.  So, I’m angry, I’m sad and I’m all of the feelings and once … but above all, I am here for Johnny’s justice. My friend of 8 years went from laughing together, working side by side, leaving our bartending shift and walking to our cars, to him dying in my arms in the street of DTLA in the dark hours of 3am.”

She went on to say, “Everything happened in an instant. I’ve come to describe it as a glass of water that gets tipped over and you’re scrambling to grab it and save it from spilling out completely but it just runs through your fingertips and is gone.” Joy said that she and Wactor, “cautiously approached the men questioning what they were doing, at first thinking the car was being towed.”

“We were no threat and Johnny kept his cool as he always did, simply stating that it was his car and for them to leave. Hands open to his sides in peace, Joy recounted. “Johnny was between me and the man who shot him – as I heard the shot ring into the night, he forcefully tumbled back into my arms as I grabbed for him I shouted, ‘Hunny, you OK?’ And he only responded, ‘Nope! Shot!’ Joy went on to say that she and Johnny “toppled onto the street” where she was trying to hold his body up as she was screaming for help and screaming at Johnny to “stay with me.”

Next, Joy details that a security guard named Bryan ran into the street and phoned 911. Anita wrote, “I’m so thankful for Bryan showing up, trying with all his might to save Johnny. My only peace is that I was him and this didn’t happen to him alone. My other peace will be seeing these awful men brought to justice.”

Speaking on Wactor’s character, Joy added, “Johnny had this incredible ability that was truly just his genuine nature – to make anyone and everyone feel so special in his eyes. No matter how well you knew him, he treated everyone like he truly cared about you. He lit up any room – you couldn’t not smile around him. His energy was magnetic and pulled you in so effortlessly – you were safe with him. He treated everyone with love, respect, compassion and he really ‘saw’ you.”

“He was beautiful, goofy as hell, full of work ethic and values, he never put people down, even when joking, he never made you feel unsure of yourself – he knew how to be hilarious in such a positive way and it just made him that much more lovable. It just filled your heart to be around him,” she recalled.  Johnny made you love him instantly,” Joy added. “Absolutely one of the best men I’ve ever known. I’m so grateful to have been a part of his world and him, mine. My heart is shattered with his loss but I believe l have gained the best guardian Angel out there.  I love you Johnny Wacky.”

Anita then addressed the crime that took Johnny’s life and how Level 8 did not provide parking for its late night shift workers.  Joy explained, “These criminals need to be caught – Level 8 needs to provide parking for their late hour staff as they originally promised- This cannot be something that isn’t responded to with action, it needs to be addressed in a manner to prevent anything like this ever happening again to the best of their ability – Level 8 needs to contribute to Johnny’s family to honor and respect him for all the hard work and effort he did for them.”

Speaking on GoFundMe page that has been set for Wactor, Anita spoke about Johnny’s family, expressing, “They are on the other side of the country and it’s going to be a lot on them emotionally and financially to get Johnny home to them.”

What do you think about Anita’s account of Johnny dying in her arms after shielding her from the thieves who were trying to steal his catalytic converter in his car? Her remembrances of the man she became friends and co-workers with? Comment below.
