THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Eric’s Health Condition Takes a Turn for the Worse


On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, Eric (John McCook) and Donna (Jennifer Gareis) met with Dr. Colby (Justiin Davis) at the Forrester mansion. It was then, we learned a little bit more insight into the medical diagnosis and issues facing the patriarch of the fashion dynasty family.

Eric has been suffering from tremors, where his hands shake, and he is unable to draw his sketches completely for his upcoming “Battle of the Forresters” fashion show vs his son, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye).

Dr Colby shares that the after ruling out some initial theories of what could be going on, “Cerebral vascular disease and TIAs are our main focus.” Donna is in shock. Eric tells the doctors that the tremors are getting worse and how he couldn’t even hold a pen to sign a contract. Dr. Colby says his office will be in touch to set up more tests, as this is all a process.


After the doctor leaves, Donna is emotionally shaken and upset and very concerned for her ‘honey bear’.  Eric shares that he didn’t want to hurt or worry her. Holding him, Donna says, “You shouldn’t have to suffer through this alone.” Donna vows that together, “We’re going to fight this. Once we figure out what this is, we’re going to get the best therapy, the best medicine.”

When she tells Eric that he must let Ridge and the family know what is going on, he refuses, stating, “I want to do this my way.”  Eric is determined, health and all, that for the upcoming fashion show that his new designs will be his best ever. He tells Donna, “This will be my finest collection, my final line.” Eric firmly details how he started this company with his own hands and he can take it back, adding, “There’s only one master here and it’s me. It’s Eric Forrester.”

Later, when Donna exits to make them some tea. Eric picks up a pencil and starts to sketch a dress design, until he starts having a coughing attack. He grabs a tissue to cough in it, but when he pulls it away and looks down, he sees fresh blood.  A look of grave concern comes over Eric’s face, and we fade to black.

Check out a key moment from yesterday’s B&B below Dr. Colby, Donna and Eric.

Finally, a story that doesn’t have to do with Hope, Liam, Steffy or Finn. It’s always exciting when B&B gets back to its roots with fashion stories, and I’m glad Eric is being given front-burner story again. He’s been the heart and soul of the show since Stephanie passed away, and has been criminally underutilized in recent years.

He has cancer. He needs to face up to reality. This is no time to pay Russian Roulette. He needs to tell the family.

Finally a good story without pukey Liam whining but I will very sad if John McCook leaves!

He just signed a contract for 3 years. John is not leaving.

I do not think it is amusing at all for this idiot Brad Bell to bring up an illness when poof it will be gone in four weeks never talked about again! Stay in you fantasy world with your mannequins etc

It will not be the same if Eric (John) leaves the show.

I thought maybe Parkinson’s untill he coughed blood. Now I don’t know

I thought that as well, but now I’m thinking TB? Or lung cancer? IDK either. Lol thanks for letting me share. Peace ️ everyone

Eric is such a great guy and to have Donna at his side is beautiful chemistery.she is the best wife for him.please keep their bond together.

Don’t drag this out. Eric is acting like a spoiled person
Needs to shape up.

Sick people change the closer they get to death. As a medical person, I saw this first hand.

I think they have played this on long enough let’s move on and show him getting some medical treatment and stop him from acting like he’s a marter

Family should know. Everyone

Ridge would be supportive.

I am so sick of Sheila and whiny Liam. If Sheila remains much longer or Eric leaves, I’m gone.

Eric just signed 3 yr contract. Says he’s not going anywhere

I’ve had enough of Sheila to last a lifetime..And she’s right about Liam being whinny and trying to break up Steffy and Finn. I don’t blame hope for leaving him. He’s acting like a jealous child wanting his cake and eat it too. I hope Deacon finds out what a trouble maker she is and sends her off into the sunset! I too will quit watching if Sheila remains! Can’t wait to see how they cure Eric, but don’t go off the deep end with all this fantasy stuff like Days did and he is acting like a spoiled child too and I read where he has signed a 3 year contract. I don’t miss Days either because the show cause it was hard to believe. I don’t even stream it anymore.

I like Thomas and Hope together, Liam isn’t true to Hooe.

I think Eric has Parkinson’s

You dont spit up blood with Parkinsons. They say he’s being poisoned somehow, Finn will find out!

It is time for Erics son Thorne to step in and show he is as good or better designer than Ridge.

I agree! Besides, he’s a real Forrester, i hope that he’ll take over Forrester’s Creations & Ridge is thrown to the curve along w/high & mighty Steffy!

I didn’t know Thorne was a designer. When dud that happen?

If I’m not mistaken, Thorne is long dead , and Katie has his heart.

It was Brooke’s and the other sister’s brother that was killed when he shot himself, so Katie could have his heart.

I was coughing up blood in 2013 Turned out to be a tumor in my lung had lung surgery was the most painful surgery ive ever had and I have had several but I’m still here

I think he has lung cancer or ALS

OMG, we gave so many Doctors on here.l

I don’t know what Eric is suffering from but I certainly hope that they will have a cure for it!

I think it is TB

In the old days they would have called it consumption, but that doesn’t account for the rest of his symptoms.

Just when you think B & B find a couple worth watching, Hope and Thomas, they destroy them . So much chemistry !! Hope and Finn is a losing storyline. If B & B put Hope and Finn in bed, they will find out how fast that we can change to channel ! It is sickening !!

Glad Eric is getting a story. Writers please keep Hope and Thomas working toward each other. They have amazing chemistry.

Yes but she doesn’t Love. Pure sex on her side.

I think there’s something wrong with Eric that needs to be fixed that can be fixed until he gets his daughter working on it it’s not going to be fixed so he needs to get his daughter on it

I’m glad to see we’re moving on to Eric and other aspects of the B&B. I almost stopped watching with all the “love scenes” between Hope and Thomas. I’m sorry, Hope is a pretty lady but soft porn is not her sexy.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Kristina is Rocked By Sonny’s Behavior, Finn Teeters on the Edge as Gregory’s Condition Worsens

Monday’s May 20th episode of General Hospital brought with it emotional moments featuring excellent performances by Kate Mansi (Kristina), Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Michael Easton (Finn).

In the pick of Friday’s cliffhanger, Sonny goes postal on Dex (Evan Hofer) and Jason (Steve Burton), until he sees that Kristina heard and saw the whole thing. She runs into the bathroom, while Sonny goes after her.

Sonny is begging Kristina to let him explain. He goes on to say how Dex and Jason both turned on him, and to please not be afraid of him. But, all Kristina can do is cry as she begs Sonny not to touch her, and with that, he walks out.


Alone and frightened, and trying to calm herself down, Kristina phones Blaze (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) and tells her to come to the bathroom. Kristina is worried about her unborn baby, and cannot believe her father’s behavior.  It’s at that point, Kristina voices she feels like a fool because everyone was warning her about her father. She thought he had a code of ethics, but the man she saw threaten to kill Dex and Jason is nothing like that, leaving her bewildered and stunned.

Jason calls Carly (Laura Wright) and she comes running to the Metro Court to find Sonny, while Jason follows her, but remains sight unseen. Carly finds Sonny at the pool area. Sonny says he thinks no one loves him anymore. Carly says Kristina just needs some time. Carly tells Sonny to not act like that again, but Sonny says he can’t promise that.


Following Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) wedding, Gregory, Finn and Violet (Jophielle Love) come home.  When Violet  goes to bed, it leaves father and son to have some very heavy moments given Gregory’s battle with ALS. Finn tells his dad that he appreciates the time they have together now after years of being apart. Gregory tells Finn he is proud of him, which brings the good doctor to tears.

After Finn helps Gregory get ready for bed, he leaves and calls Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn). Finn admits he threw away 7 years of sobriety by somehow taking a sip of champagne at the wedding reception. Alexis wonders if subconsciously he wanted the drink but says that doesn’t mean he failed.


At the end of episode, Gregory is in bed, and has flashes of his own life from a child till now, and of his children, Finn and Chase. He finally closes his eyes. Will Gregory not wake up sending Finn on a complete downward spiral? Stay tuned!

AMERICAN IDOL: Abi Carter Crowned the Winner, Katy Perry Sheds Tears In Her Final Episode

American Idol has crowned its winner when platinum ticket holder, Abi Carter took herself all the way to the finals with her exquisite voice and performances.

The 21-year-old from Indio, California, won Americas vote to become the “American Idol” season 22 champion during Sunday night’s finale on ABC besting runner-up Will Moseley. Earlier in the finale, Jack Blocker came in third.

During the three-hour season finale, Carter got a surprise video from her idol, Billie Eilish, which reduced her to tears. That would be a first of many moments through the show that Abi was emotional, and so too, was departing judge, pop superstar, Katy Perry.


When Carter was crowned the winner, the camera panned to the judges table where Perry was in a puddle of tears overjoyed for Carter, and also knowing this was the end of her run after seven years with the show.

Earlier this season, Katy announced she would be stepping away from “Idol”.  A replacement has not yet been named. At the end of the finale, judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie shared an emotional hug with Perry, who also performed during the show with the aforementioned, Jack Blocker.

Previously, Perry during the audition process, voted not to send Blocker through and gave him a “no”. Blocker’s fortunes were changed when the ‘Idol’ production crew and Bryan wanted him to move on to Hollywood and the rest, as they say, was ‘Idol’ history.

The who’s who of the music industry was also on hand to perform with the top ten runner-ups in musical numbers leading into the final moments of the show. Guest performers included: Jon Bon Jovi, Jason Mraz, Wynonna Judd, Seal and New Kids on the Block.

In the moment of the night, Ryan Seacrest revealed Abi as the winner and she fell to the floor in tears. After previewing her new single in the final round of competition, “This Isn’t Over”, Carter attempted to gather herself to sing a reprieve of Eilish’s “What Was I Made For?” It was that song that started Abi’s ‘Idol’ journey.
