CBS Daytime’s globetrotting The Bold and the Beautiful will airs its scenes shot in Monte Carlo in episodes from July 25th through August 8th. As part of the story arc, B&B brought into their stable four guest stars recognizable to audiences from their primetime TV roles to join the fun.

According to TV Insider’s Michael Logan, Parks and Recreation’s Jim O’Heir and Everybody Loves Raymond’s Monica Horan will play Matt and Kieran, a hilarious pair of annoying passengers who end up next to Quinn (Rena Sofer) on a jet headed to Monaco.

Later, former St. Elsewhere star Ed Begley Jr. and his actress wife, Rachelle Carson (formerly of Falcon Crest), will play themselves when they appear at the Spencer Summit in Monte Carlo with budding social activist Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton).

What do you think of these guest star set-ups? Looking forward to the Monte Carlo episodes? Comment below!

Oh come on…these are considered “guest stars?” I’ve never even heard of 3 of them!
Get some current primetime stars and maybe we’ll take notice!

Not really much to do with this column update; but, I just have to give kudos to Heather Tom for her acting skills-not only this week, but every day. She just nailed it-a betrayed, angry, hurt, broken-down wife and sister. WOW! One thing I have to say, though-why does everyone seem to say, “Oh Bill would never do that to you/her. He respects marriage.” Um, hello, he’s cheated on her before, why would it be such a shock? & please, ship the Whiner Wyatt out of LA. I cant’ stand how desperate, pathetic, and whiney he sounds. UGH. I could… Read more »

I could not agree more about Heather Tom. I ave just started B&B this year and LOVE it! I like every character on the show, especially Liam, Quinn, Steffy, Brooke, Bill and Katie. If Heather needs help with choosing her Emmy reel next year, I highly recommend this week’s work. I am not sure I will ever forget her calling Brooke, “the whore of the valley.” I also liked how understated her performancewas during her goodbye scenes with Brooke. Cheers to next year’s Best Actress!

I completely agree with you. Heather Tom owned the July 8th episode. I was actually feeling her pain and scorn when she was talking to Brooke. She puts herself completely into every scene she does. She is the true definition of the word actress. and to be fair, Katharine Kelly Lang’s breakdown scene at the was the perfect ending. All in all, I think today’s episode (July 8th 2016) was well played by all. One of the best episodes B&B has put out in a long while. Now Katie and Liam need to team together (as friends only, because I… Read more »

Couldn’t Thorne guest star as a fed up Forrester or to upset the apple cart. He did shoot Ridge once. What of he came back all nice and complacent. .since Brad Bell can’t figure out how to write him. .and he ends up going Sheila Carter postal over Ally and Darla which could bring back Taylor. Taylor who would rip Ridge AND Brooke a new one and go toe to toe worth Quinn as her therapist. .sigh. .of course nothing doing

Rachelle Carson only guest starred in three episodes of Falcon Crest. Not a very memorable character.

A few things…

1. ‘Dollar Bill’ lecturing and preaching to Liam on ‘the sanctity of marriage’…OH, PUH-LEEZ!!!!!!!!!! Bill cannot EVEN REMOTELY keep his own damn marriage together!!!!! HYPOCRITE!!!!!
2. Katie telling that nasty-ass Brooke that she (Brooke) is ‘still the whore of the valley’…LOVE IT!!!!! AND EVEN MORE TRUE!!!!!
3. Most of all, Brooke is W-A-Y TOO OLD to be behaving that damn slutty!!!!! PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!

Just saying……….

It doesn’t really matter. They could get really anybody as long as they can act. I don’t really enjoy stunt casting.

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
