Today on Friday, June 16th following the airing of The Bold and the Beautiful in all U.S. time zones, head on over to The Bold and the Beautiful’s You Tube page for a special behind the scenes look at the CBS daytime drama’s location shoot in Rome, Italy.

B&B kicked-off their Italian remote story arc on today’s episode and the remote scenes will air through Monday, June 26th.

In the sneak peek, the cast traveled to the Eternal City of Rome, Italy, to film exterior scenes from seven episodes. On the lush rooftop of the famed Grand Hotel Plaza, watch as they are interviewed by Italian media during Press Day, film episodes in such iconic locations as the Aventine Keyhole, the Orange Garden, a sumptuous private villa with a rooftop pool, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps and Piazza Navona.

As had been previously previewed, the Rome-produced episodes, The City of Eternal Love and its stunning architectural beauty is the setting of a magically romantic story where Hope’s Logan’s (Annika Noelle) elegant new fashion collection is a triumph, but the magic of the moment could either break, or fulfill, the promise of true love.

The Bold and the Beautiful is known for its exquisite Italian location shoots.  In the past the show has visited: Lake Como (1997), Venice (1999), Portofino (2002) and the region of Puglia (2012).

In 2023, cast members appearing in the Rome episodes include: Matthew Atkinson (Thomas), Scott Clifton (Liam), Thorsten Kaye (Ridge), Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke), Annika Noelle (Hope), Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter) and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy).

You can watch the BTS B&B special below, then let us know if you are looking forward to seeing just what happens between Thomas and Hope and Brooke and Ridge in the comment section.

The clothes on this show which is supposed to be about fashion are tacky that jumpsuit Hope wore on the plane looked like it was acid wash denim.

I thought the jumpsuit was appropriate for a long plane ride and she wanted to be comfortable.

Comfort yes tacky no

Do not want to see brook and ridge reunited. He needs to be reunited with his true love taylor.

I agree with you 1000%, very sick of the same ole sh**


Yep, same stuff!! I’m over wasting 30 minutes of my day on the SSDD…

I agree also. Get a new story line.

So true

Brooke is Ridge true love

Neither one don’t Brook or Taylor Ridge need to move on with some else the ladies need move on too no more drama with these ladies move on some else

Agree With Taylor

Want to see Ridge back with Taylor

No she doesn’t look right for him. He and Brooke go together like pancakes and syrup

Reunited with brook

Brook is too sure of herself. No I don’t wasn’t her and Ridge together. Yes I know it’s a show.

Yes, I have always wanted ltogether. Although they have had a lot of ups and downs. I rather they be together then with Taylor she is a m manipuler who’s sneaky just lke her son and daughter. I’m tired of Steffy tearing down Hope and Liam, many he’s not a very strong man. I think he need Hope better then Steffy please don’t change that.

No, I don’t want to see him with Taylor or Brook. They all need to move on.

I know the scenes with Taylor are interesting with Brooke it’s phony

I agree with the statement tired of seeing Ridge and Brook together I have got to where I don’t watch when it is on those two. It would be so exciting to see Ridge with Taylor , and Brook with Deacon . Watching Brook and Ridge is just so Boring.

Ridge and Brooke belong together

Want to see Ridge and Taylor back together again


Yes Taylor

I would like to see Taylor and Ridge reunited.
Also like to see Thomas and Hope reunited so that Douglas has a True family.

Absolutely. He has never stopped loving Brooke!! They are awesome together. ❤️

I have been watching for 50 years I am sick of Brook, and just to let You know Brook is the one always that has always been the bad one . Who. Sleep s with their Daughters Husband and has a child with Him( Hope), She needs to Be with Deacon

Make up your mind lady. First you condemn Brooke for sleeping with Deacon,Hope’s dad, than you say she needs to be with him.


No want to see Brooke and ridge back together again

No Taylor and Ridge Brooke has slept around the entire family when does the underdog win Taylor needs her chance and keeping the family they built together

Brook and ridge and Hope and Liam just give them something exciting that they are doing

I do too. Ridge and Taylor are perfect together.

Yes, I want to see Ridge and Taylor back together

Agree yes

No, No & No again. And, I don’t want him with Brook either. Brook has broken his heart tooo many times.

No! Brooke and Ridge

There is no Thomas and Hope,but yes there is a Brooke and Ridge.

I’d love to see Ridge and Brooke back together! Betty

NO No No

Will they ever allow Thomas to have his own girl friend. He needs to have his own true love and no more drama in his life. Let Thomas be happy for once.

I am so tired of brooke and ridge and the whole “destiny” thing…give Taylor a shot ridge!

Yes. Please this Brook thing is crazy.


He gave her two shots too many and wound up with two obnoxious and obtrusive kids.

He gave her two shots and it produced two of his worst children!

Ridge should not have left Brooke to begin with. They were doing good until Thomas interfered.



Brooke and Ridge were doing great until Thomas interfered.

Bring back Quinn she kept things interesting.Ridge is a has been bring in someone young and bad for Taylor, Brooke sickens me…….

True, Quinn truly kept things going, never a dull moment with her. Loved her and Carter together.

You just loved them cheating on Eric?,how nice.

I agreed Brooke is TOO OLD to be trashy like she is

Iam tired of Ridge Brooke and Dana take them off the show. Bring something good to show.

Seems we are all agreeing. Why do they continue?

I wish they would let everyone stay together and quit going in circles with the same people changing from one to the other. They need new people on the show and for one thing. Hope and Thomas is not a good match. The Italy trip is not all that interesting nothing new about it. Just a repeat of shows before someone sleeping with someone else man or woman.

So old and sick of the Ridge and Brooke teenage storyline. It’s been done too many times. Get over it break them up and let it go.Move on they are older now.

AGREED!! STOP IT!! No elders acting like horny teens!

I wish there would be something different on the show a little bit of excitement give people something to talk about. I would like to see hope and Thomas together Liam and steffy is always messing around and put Taylor and Brooke together that would show them all

Writers Strike Comes to an End; Leadership Votes To Conclude Work Stoppage

It’s over! After 148 days, the 2023 Writers strike will go down as the second longest in WGA union history, only a labor stoppage in 1988 was longer.

The strike will officially come to end on Wednesday at 12:01am PT.  This was due to a vote from the guild’s leadership that now has authorized its over 11,500 members to return to work.

That means: pitching and selling scripts, taking meetings, responding to notes, writers’ rooms opening up again, and more, can now restart.

The WGA committee shared that the vote, “Allows writers to return to work during the ratification process, but does not affect the membership’s right to make a final determination on contract approval.” However, WGA East and West voted unanimously to lift the “restraining order” on Tuesday.

As the negotiators shared, the end of the strike doesn’t mean that the tentative agreement that the union reached with producers on Sunday night is a surefire thing: Union members still need to vote to ratify the contract. Union leadership announced on Tuesday that will take place between October 2nd and October 9th.

However, SAG-AFTRA still remains on strike. So, even with the writers returning to work, many productions can’t move forward without their principal actors and performers.

So soap fans, how do you feel about this news for your favorite shows? Glad that the head writers and their writing teams will be back at work as soon as this week from Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and The Bold and the Beautiful? Y&R’s Josh Griffith, who previously had gone Fi-Core during the 2008 strike, remained at the top rated show during the last several months.

Another fan favorite performer is recovering from surgery. Joe Lando (ex-Jake, One Life to Live, ex-Craig, The Bold and the Beautiful, ex-Lee, The Bay) shared on his Instagram that he just completed total knee replacement surgery.

Lando, who is best known for his role as Joe Sully on Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman, revealed: “Just had my knee replaced, and I’m laying in recovery. And there’s some trouble breathing. But I think I’ll get over it. I’m really, really high right now.”

Next, Joe took his iPhone and panned over to show that he was actually in the hallway of the hospital in his gurney and near the nurses’ station. That’s when Joe added,  “There’s the wonderful ladies that are taking care of me. I’ll keep you posted. Bye!”

Accompanying the video post, Lando wrote, “Happy total knee replacement Monday. And no, Dr. Quinn didn’t do the surgery. She’s more of an open heart specialist.🤓

WGA and AMPTP Reach Tentative Deal to End Writers Strike

Looks like we are close, very close, to the writing teams at your favorite soap operas returning to their jobs with news on Sunday that finally the WGA and AMPTP have reached a tentative deal. What remains is the fine print, and having the WGA vote to ratify their contracts.

This is welcome news to the television, streaming and motion picture industry that after five months of a strike has put the 2023-2024 TV season in deep water.

In a statement, the Writers Guild shared, “We have reached a tentative agreement on a new 2023 MBA (Minimum Basic Agreement), which is to say an agreement in principle on all deal points, subject to drafting final contract language. We can say, with great pride, that this deal is exceptional — with meaningful gains and protections for writers in every sector of the membership.”

As the deal goes through its final stages, the writers are still technically on strike, but picketing outside studios and shows has now been suspended.

Among the writers’ demands that they fought for are: higher residuals from streaming shows, minimum staff sizes to prevent the use of “mini rooms” and protections from the use of AI.  The hope within the entertainment industry is that the new deal for the WGA will move along a new contract for SAG-AFTRA (actors) with the AMPTP.  As of Monday, SAG-AFTRA is still on strike.

As for your favorite soap operas, during the strikes, the shows were written by non-union writers or “fi-core” writers who gave up their union benefits in order to continue working.

The next steps in process will see the WGA negotiating committee vote on “whether to recommend the agreement and send it on to the WGAW Board and WGAE Council for approval,” tentatively scheduled for Tuesday.  Another vote by the board and council could lift the strike “restraining order”and allow scribes to “return to work during the ratification vote”.

So, are you happy to know that the writing teams from your favorite soaps are about to return to work and helm the scripts and the vision of the shows? Comment below.
