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 Kimberlin Brown Shows How-To Do The Sheila ‘Makeover’

Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, brought with it a very much alive and in disguise Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown).

While smart B&B viewers knew there was no way a bear ended the life of Sheila, and that she would return to the canvas to cause more trouble, no one quite knew how she would integrate herself into society to not get caught by the police for her crimes.

Now donning a red wig, some facial prosthetics and a new sexy wardrobe, Sheila tested out her transformation on a tipsy Deacon (Sean Kanan), who had too much to drink.  Next thing you know, the two ‘strangers’ have sex.  Does Deacon really not know its Sheila?

Meanwhile, Kimberlin Brown posted a video on her Instagram of just how the B&B make-up and hair team came up with Sheila’s new look.

The actress expressed: “#behindthescenes #transformation #sheila goes red! Thanks you @danmakesstuff and @tinsleystudio for the wonderful #prosthetics and of course the wonderful Chris Lia Johnson #makeup @stephpaughhair for her #wig work! What a great #team

You can watch the time-lapsed video below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Sheila’s new look? How will B&B incorporate Sheila’s disguise for the next leg of her storyline to still be a part of Finn’s (Tanner Novlan) life? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
