If I won a casting call? Well, in a dream world, I’d want a romantic (not bedroom, just romantic) scene with Greg Rikaart, because he looks to have a great sense of humor and he’d need it to do the scene with me. I’d have loved to do a scene in the old Chancellor house set; it looks cozy despite its mansion status. I’d also like to be on a set with Jill unleashing her fury on Hilary…that would be a treat.

I know, Soaphound. You pegged Greg correctly. He always has that mischievous little twinkle in his eye. Love him. He makes me smile just by standing there.

Would love to play a friend of Nikki’s from her stripper days or a friend of Jill’s from her days as a manicurist ,returning after a long absence from Genoa City with damaging secrets from the past. Or…….any scene with Victor containing lots of banter back and forth!

I wish it were just banter passing through Victor’s lying lips, Sandy. LOL. You have nice sentiments for these characters….who, in their own way, are all three degenerates. Nikki’s superior attitude is riddled-full of less than honorable holes; and Jill (from less-than modest beginnings) has much to answer to/for as a mother, daughter, wife and friend. Nonetheless, they are both the best!!!!! And, it warms the heart to see Jill and her familiar presence. Victor is all that is despicable in a father and human being. But, I cannot deny Eric’s tenacity and professionalism. He still rocks as one of… Read more »

Celia…not only do I get (and agree with) what you’re saying, as far as I’m concerned, Nikki’s ‘attitude and everything else’ is full of storyline holes…LOL!!!!! Oh…and BTW, at this point, It would take a CROWBAR (or something) to PRY OPEN Nikki’s sense of humor…MORE LOL!!!!! What a sourball?!?!?

Later, my friend.

Lol, Jay….now, I ask you: If you (or I) were married to Victor….how much of sourballs would we be? Boy, I’m surprised she’s not on a leash.

Celia, my dear…I’m not into ‘sourball behavior’…LOL!!!!! A-n-d…I (myself) CANNOT STAND men who have ‘sourball personalities’. N-o-p-e.

B&B’s Matthew Atkinson On Gaining Custody of Douglas: “Thomas Just Wants to Take His Rightful Place”

On The Bold and the Beautiful, Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) wants to be more of an active father to his son, Douglas (Django Ferri), who has been living with Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam (Scott Clifton).

When confronted with this news, Hope is not too happy, because she could lose being mother to the little boy, who she has come to love as her own.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstands now), Atkinson shared on the story: “Thomas just wants to take his rightful place. He’s not saying they are no longer a family. It’s just the opposite.  He’s not prying Douglas away from Hope.  He knows Douglas has bonded with Hope, Liam and Beth, and he believes they can all make it work.”

The question is, will Thomas resort to extreme measures as he has in the past to get what he wants, or will he work this out with Hope and Liam?

Check out the latest promo for this week’s action on B&B below.

Now let us know, do you want Thomas to have more of a relationship with his son, Douglas? Should the boy live between all three ‘parents’? Should Douglas fight for solo custody? Comment below.
