The Bold and the Beautiful celebrated in style this weekend with a fantastic celebration for their cast, crew, and colleagues honoring the soaps milestone … 25 years on the air and their silver anniversary!  The show which remains hugely popular in the U.S. that also has an incredible following worldwide, patted themselves on the back for 25 years of drama, romance, and fashion!

You’re not my favorite soap at all. And your storylines are often quite lame and ridiculous at times.

But still…

HAPPY 25TH ANNIVERSARY THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL AND HOPE THAT PEOPLE GET TO WISH YOU ANOTHER HAPPY 25TH ANNIVERSARY IN 25 YEARS FROM NOW.

Heather, I totally agree with you….I’ve watched a couple of times, out of sheer boredom, and I have one question for all the fans of this show….. Why in the hell is it so important, for the characters of this show, to be so involved in this stupid, pointless love triangle of Liam/Steffy/Hope? This is quite possibly the stupidest storyline that I have ever seen!! The entire cast talks about it to nauseum every day.

Torrey: It’s like the cast of General Hospital… Almost on a regular (day to day basis) you hear the words, ” keep you safe”, so much so it’s to nauseum!

Nice pictures. Other than to promote a CBS show, why exactly where those two from Big Brother at this event? I think it would have been nice and appropriate for some of the former actors who were significant to the show to have appeared at the event: Lauren Koslow, Jim Storm, Bobbie Eakes, Jeff Trachta, Joanna Johnson, Carrie Mitchum, and Schae Harrison. Maybe some of these actors were there and there are no photos of them here??

That’s why it’s TRUE what they say, “haste maks waste”. I read over it so quickly, and replied. In restrospect, I should have realized that was not you. The clues are the writing. There was…. Capital letter’s for people’s names (U don’t go through all that, lol.) But the most telling is (and how I know it’s you instantly when I look at the reply in my email is) U place your many coma’s “very closely ” to the word to the left, then you don’t SKIP a space before U type the next word. LOL . For example. word… Read more »

What happened to the storyline with him launching a coup to takeover Forester?

I wish they’d bring Felicia back too. I think it’s a mistake by Brad Bell to focus on the younger generation. Every show needs balance. Young people can enjoy stories about people older than them–it just needs to be told well. I love Maggie and Victor on Days and I’m not in their age bracket.

There were a lot of past soap stars at the event. I was lucky to also be at the 25 th party. It was a fabulous
party. B n B always throw amazing parties. I know Bobbie Eakes was at the 20 year party I got a pic with her at that party.

Thanks for posting these photos, Michael. While B&B disappoints me of late and I do not watch much at all, I was a major fan from the very start. Where is Ronn Moss in this portfolio? Winsor Harmon… WOW! Wonder what they served for dessert… berries perhaps?

Happy Anniversary, but that storyline with Hope, Steffi & Liam is so lame..what kind of women are they?? I started watching when OLTL & AMC were cancelled but those two women totally disrespect themselves by fighting over a guy…what are they 13 & in jr.high?? puleazzze…

To answer your question Mo I think Windsor Harmon must have done something to Brad Bell’s wheaties he just won’t write for the guy! Next question is he writing a send offf for Jack Wagner or do we never see him again?

Mo
Guest

My guess is Jack is done. I think they want him to be recurring so they’re not going to do a send off. I wish they’d put Nick and Bridget back together. I miss Jackie and Owen.

I hope that is not true ,jack is the one guy on days of our lives that I really like,a lot.

Um, this thread is about B&B, not Days. The Jack I’m referring to is Jack Wagner who plays Nick Marone on B&B, as Kay mentioned in her post.

Your right I forgot he nevers gives a send off! They are all held hostage in the basement with Thorne. I do not think you will see much of the new sex therapist either that was only used to get Hope hooked on pills. I use to really love this show I turn it on praying to see a glimpse of what was, but to no avail.

Mo

Every now and then we get glimpses of storylines and then we’re back to the Hope and Liam show. I wouldn’t mind seeing Hope and Liam if I saw other storylines too. I want more Amber and Rick. And Thorne is dating Taylor??? Say what? But apparently that is off screen. He doesn’t even get to appear when he sends Taylor a chocolate fountain on Valentine’s Day. Instead that is setup for Hope-Steffy fight. It’s like everything revolves around Hope-Liam-Steffy and it shouldn’t.

Everyone looks FABULOUS. Jacquie McInnes Wood looks AMAZING. And Adrienne Frantz is one incredibly lucky woman. I had no idea she was married to that hunk, Scott Bailey, but the fact she has continued to have steady work despite her, ahem, ability. Again, INCREDIBLY lucky.

Here is the premise of the show: After the ‘Broadway Disher’ (Lesli Margherita) leaks news of a top secret, in-the-works, new mega musical, the Broadway community goes off-the-charts batty. Top-of-their-game Broadway Producers Cheryl Philips (Lillias White) and Steve Jones (James Monroe Iglehart), arch enemies, pounce. Who will get the rights? Will way-out-of-their-comfort-zone creators Kaye (Ashley Park) and Bobby (Michael Urie) manage to deliver a draft of the show before their marriage implodes? Will Director/Choreographer Zoey Taylor (Ariana DeBose) send the show’s budget into a free fall with her wildly ambitious vision?  Will Broadway Diva Emma-Olivia (Sarah Stiles) get a Schmackery’s cookie (with Sprinkles) named in her honor? Will newbie Agent Maxwell Fernsby (George Salazar) step into his new big shoes? And will Science Consultant Andrew Barth Feldman (Andrew Barth Feldman) protect the integrity and authenticity of the in-the-works mega musical, before he needs to leave this top secret show to star in a new Broadway musical?

As The Curtain Rises proudly supports The Actor’s Fund, the Broadway Podcast Network Frontline Initiative, and is a sponsored project of IFP (www.ifp.org).

Check out previous episodes of the podcast here.
