He IS a fine actor, but I am really hoping his character will finally transform. I wanted to throw the TV out the window during Kevin and Chloe’s latest scheme with the stolen money. And to think there is a small child in the picture now who might not have had a roof over her head or had a mother. I love that Y&R is getting better and actors/characters are being used better than before, but some characters are still stuck in their old bad habits and Kevin is a major one. One of my favorites of Kevin was his… Read more »

Greg is a great actor. I loved him with his first wife Jana. I don’t like him with Chloe. My least favorite actresses on this show are Chelsea and Chloe. They do nothing for this show and have no chemistry with any male actors

Chloe is a joke! Period! Poor Greg! Kevin needs someone funny and quirky like Jana again ITA with all Y’all. But speaking of the anniversary i still love my favorite actress Sharon but sad she is not back in a love scene with Adam yet. come on they are smoking hot together!!!!!!!!! P<S Chelsea does not belong on this show anymore. Have Chloe go with Chelsea to Paris! 🙂

For me, Kevin is the only reason I watch the show – I don’t know what it is about Greg’s acting, he has this way of playing on my feelings no other actor has. You see, in our TV the Y&R was about four years behing you in the US, so I remember all too well his first storylines and all the bad things he did! The first time I paid any special attention to him was on the scene with Lauren and the Valentine’s night, when she went out with him to get him to admit what he did… Read more »

He is such a good actor I hate seeing him wasted. Kevin is such a brilliant computer expert he should be working within Jabot or Newman. Certainly, Phyllis owes him something after that crazy escapade she got him involved in with the dead body. Plus, that is her forte so she and Kevin working together would make perfect sense. But, some people can never seem to escape their past behaviors so in a way it makes sense that Kevin always manages to screw up despite his best intentions. They just need to keep the core of the character without making… Read more »

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

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.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

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.
