The Bold and the Beautiful In Talks With Qantas To Bring Show For Location Shoot In Australia!

The Bold and the Beautiful has been the soap on the move in recent years with lush location shoots in countries all around the world.

No other American soap opera has been able to do what the CBS Daytime drama has.  Now it looks like Australia is on the radar as one of the next location shoots B&B is aiming for.  According to MSN.com Australia:  “The Bold and The Beautiful is in talks with Qantas to bring the hugely popular series to Australia.”

A source close to the series shared:  “We are going to Australia that’s for sure. We are just not sure when. We will send a location scout and write the story about the destination.  We are looking for iconic, interesting historic authentic locations.”

Show Producers told AAP (The Australian Associated Press) they were not sure how long the show would stay down under:  “It’s all about the story. It depends on the storyline. We are thinking about Budapest, Poland, and Flemish Belgium. But the only one that’s sure is Australia. We don’t know when it will happen. It may be 2017.”

One intriguing thing to note: The Bold and the Beautiful premiered in 1987.  If the series were to shoot in Australia in 2017, it would create quite an occasion and another milestone for the series, which would then turn 30 years old.

So, what would be a good story to bring B&B to Australia? We know Ivy, and her portrayer Ashleigh Brewer hail from there!  What do you think about BOLD’s ability to make locations shoots happen around the globe?  It would seem that Aussie based airline company Quantas would be perfect marketing partner.  Comment below!

Not really. Eric and Ivy fathers are brothers, Ivy would be first cousins with Eric’s children, like Rick and Ridge, but since Ridge isn’t Eric’s bio son, there is no direct blood relationship between Ivy and Thomas– they are simply second cousins in name only.

These location shoots are always ruined by these crappy Liam triangle stories, in fact the whole show has been ruined by them. If Macy were to be found alive there I’d look forward to it 🙂

I watch sometimes while at home during my lunch. I like how the show goes on location-very rare these days. Have to change the channel when Wyatt is on. What a wimp.

Liam is the wimpiest man on the show, with his brother Wyatt #2. I guess the Stallion just doesn’t sire strong male heirs. Those two brothers need to sit down and talk it through and quit trying to share the same women.

Applaud location shoots. Anything to restore the lustre of daytime. But sad over B&B’s lame and endless triangle stories. I would welcome a genuine mystery or, as a poster suggested, discovery of a lost character and launch of a new plot course. Also wish CBS Daytime loved the location shoots when its other soaps — ATWT and GL — were left in limbo those years before cancellation.

Way I see location shots– vacation for the actors lol
The actors will love it !

Would be fun to see the cast outdoors sweating and sticky, their hair flopped from the humidity, if they go in the summer it’s really hot/humid there..

I have watched bold since it started back in 1987, and before it i watched Another world. I also watch Days of our lives ,and Young and the Restless. I would love to see Bold and the Beautiful come to do some filming In Australia. It had a lot of Australians watch it as it is on 4.30 on channel 10 which is prime watching time. I tape all my shows on my Foxtel and never miss any shows.

I love when they go on location but I agree lets have a mystery or something. Im tired of the same old triangles and would somebody please give that poor Katie with the heart condition a kick in the pants, I’m so sick of her and her insecurities. I like Katie’s acting but she needs to get out of the past as the little girl standing in the window watching her two beautiful sisters Donna & Brooke going out on dates. She needs to stop with her Daddy’s & Mommy’s favorite stuff and realize she is just as beautiful and… Read more »

I’d prefer better writing instead of pretty background shoot locales.

Please stop the madness called Quinn! Better writing please.!!! Now Liam thinks he is Adam and Quinn is Eve?? That is just so stupid. Give him medical help–that is so irresponsible of B & B.

Give Brooke a great storyline please! TV going off again.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Oprah Winfrey Helps Ellen DeGeneres Process Ending Her Talk Show & Tells Her She is ‘Proud’ of Her for Following Her Instincts

Oprah Winfrey was the once reigning queen of the daytime talk show, and that mantled was then passed on to Ellen DeGeneres, although their shows were at times, very different.

With the announcement by DeGeneres that she is ending her talk show after its 19th season which will run from fall 2021-into spring 2022, who else should be her first guest but the mighty Oprah who knows a thing or two about ending an enduring talk show.   Winfrey appeared virtually and praised Ellen for knowing it was time to call it quits and reflected on the ending of the Oprah Winfrey Show back in 2011.

Oprah expressed: “It’s almost 10 years ago …will be next week.  10 years ago when I was in this exact position. I know what those feelings are. I also know the feelings leading up to it. So hearing you say, and announcing to the world that it was your instinct, and that you thought long and hard about it … because anybody would know that for something that is as powerful as the show is in other people’s lives, that you would not take that lightly. And that coming to the realization that, ‘Now it is time,’ is a process.”

Ellen shared that her decision was about wanting to have, and do, and fulfill other creative outlets for herself.  When Oprah asked Ellen how she was feeling since she made the announcement and uttered the words, ‘the show is ending after its 19th season.’ Ellen responded:  “I didn’t rehearse the monologue. I knew what I was going to say, but the words hadn’t come out of my mouth. So I was okay until I started talking and it became real. Obviously, I got emotional because it’s real now. But I’m feeling good.  I feel like it’s the right thing to do, but I’m charged. It’s a weird thing to announce that I’m stopping.”   Winfrey then said, “I’m proud of you for trusting your instinct because I know that there has to be — as there was in the case for me — a lot of people around you that want to keep that train moving, who want to keep going.”

Winfrey said it was important that Ellen gave her staffers a one-year heads up, since so many of the people who work on the show built their financial and emotional and professional lives around it – and by giving everyone a year, it helps those that have worked on the show time to process and to figure out their next chapter, as well.

You can watch the entire conversation below.

Then let us know, do you think Oprah offered up great words of wisdom to Ellen? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
