THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Ivy Receives "The Shock" Of Her Life!



Two young women with a bad history, and getting into a heated argument near some short-circuited wires is not a good thing, particularily on CBS daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful!

As viewers watched on Friday’s episode, once again Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood)  is at the epicenter of someone else getting hurt, or in Aly’s  (Ashlyn Pearce) case dying!

As  Steffy and her nemesis Ivy (Ashleigh Brewer) had a war of words over Steffy outing Ivy sleeping with Thomas (Pierson Fode) to Wyatt (Darin Brooks), the gals got near the electrical cables in the Forrester Creations building. And in a swift move, Steffy ends up pushing Ivy to close to the eletrical outlet and she gets electrocted!  Steffy is mortified, or so it seems.  She is now taken down two Forrester women in curious … accidents.

During the pick up of the story on Monday’s episode of B&B, Ivy is in critical condition at the hospital.  All of the men in Ivy’s life are there too: Liam (Scott Clifton)  Wyatt,  and Thomas, as well as Steffy!

After Wyatt delivers a touching speech to a comatose Ivy, Liam and Steffy go out to the hospital corridor where he begins to realize that Steffy may have caused the electrocution!  Will a guilt-ridden Steffy admit it? Will everyone figure out that Steffy has some either serious bad karma going on?

Watch the key scenes Friday’s B&B and Monday’s episode and then weigh-in: What did you think of the electrocution scene?  Do you want Steffy to land in some serious legal trouble? Who do you want Ivy to ultimately end up with: Liam, Wyatt or Thomas?  Comment below!

Umm, continuity police? On today’s #BoldandBeautiful, (following Ivy’s electrocution) Steffy efficiently pulls her cell phone out of her blazer to call for help … which would have been heroic if not for the fact that in the scene prior, Ivy had grabbed Steffy’s cell out of her hand and threw it under the server (where said electrocution took place!!) Am I the only one that caught that blatant misstep?! Does Bell really think we cannot recall that plot point for one scene?!

Yes, I caught that and then thought I was mistaken and it was Ivy’s phone Steffy had pushed away.

No, it was definitely Steffy’s phone: she was ignoring Ivy’s badgering (while she was scrolling on her phone, waiting for Jake to handle their faulty servers), so Ivy grabbed Steffy’s phone to get her attention and she threw it under the servers!! (How Bell could let such a blatant action go unnoticed and then have Steffy miraculously whip-out another cell phone less than two minutes later is a little jarring…)

I guess we were watching different shows because what I saw was after Ivy knocked Steffy’s phone under the board, Steffy when up the stairs to go get her phone which is why they were so close to the board to begin with. As Steffy was picking up her phone, Ivy was behind her and being distracted with action of getting her phone, Steffy just shove Ivy away from her and Ivy went flying into the board.

That’s what I saw as well.

All of the players here are appealing, but I have to confess that I laughed out loud at the electrocution scene. It would make great fodder for The Soup.

The electrocution scene was unexpected and horrible, especially for daytime, if ever. Right up there with the Fluke story. Haven’t watched B&B since, which was on “life support” with me anyway. Ship Steffy out again to Paris, anywhere, never to come back. Could care less who Ivy is with. Never cared for the character anyway. And Liam is such a wimp anyway, Thomas was brought back to be a troublemaker. And on my only positive note, always liked Wyatt.


Correction note. Ivy did not sleep with Thomas. They kissed. But, still, the accident was just that, an accident. Stuffy didn’t intend to hurt ivy.

Ivy would be dead most likely.

Don’t like that Steffy is involved in another accident where someone is hurt.

The scene of Ivy being electrocuted was well-done.

Don’t know how anyone being electrocuted can be classified as “well done.”

I agree Mo. I thought Ivy played her part like a real pro. I especially like the story line and where it’s going. Thomas I can do without but a happy couple wouldn’t have a story on a soap.

I thought it was “medium rare”. I didn’t see any smoke coming from the ears, nose or mouth. 😉

Steffy didn’t out Ivy for sleeping with Thomas…which she didn’t…only making out with him.

Steffy needs to STFU and MHOB! Can’t wait until she has her comeuppance!
Ivy needs to grow up and learn how to be loyal and honest with her man.
Thomas is a sleaze and needs to go away.
Wyatt, poor guy, needs to catch a break in a relationship.

I hope Ridge hears about Thomas dallying with Ivy and really calls him on chasing other guys’ girls.

I CAN NOT believe im saying this: bring back HOPE


Hahaha, be careful, your nightmare just might come true! Actually the Hope character isn’t that bad, it’s the writing for the Hope character that’s really sad and pathetic. The actress is talented and well liked but I can only assume she got tired of the same old boring story line; girl gets guy, loses guy, get’s another guy, loses that guy and goes back to the other guy and loses that guy again and again and again.

Correct me if I’m wrong but Ivy & Thomas are cousins and should not be mingling with each other. If Ivy & Steffy are related (cousin’s ) then she & Thomas are as well. What are writers thinking?

I don’t really feel sorry for Wyatt. Remember how he horn dogged and chased Hope down and away from Liam?!?! If it goes around, it comes around.

This Steffy / Ivy story line is beyond ridiculous. First of all, the dime a dozen jewelry designer would be working from home–NOT the CEO. I was so happy to see Ally leave, hopefully Ivy is next.

Re: Ivy and Thomas cousins
Technically Thomas and Steffy having Ridge as their father who’s father is Massimo not Eric Forester.
So yes Bell needs more originality in his story lines than ‘boy get girl or girl likes boy and then ‘sick’ pathology of interactions occur. For example this situation of Steffy, Ivy, Liam, Wyatt, and Thomas (What a hollow character – couldn’t you do better than that Bell).


Tom Arnold to Guest Star on The Bold and the Beautiful

The Bold and the Beautiful is adding a new pilot to its cast of characters to fly the Forresters overseas this summer to Monte Carlo, and it’s none other than Tom Arnold.

According to US Weekly, Arnold will appear in two upcoming episodes of the CBS soap opera airing at the end of July.  In story, Arnold will play the Forrester’s new pilot named Captain Deuce Stevens.

Arnold said of working with the B&B actors and crew, “It was great fun. People love The Bold and the Beautiful. The loyalty, the fans, the opinions … I started going online and listening to fans argue about certain things. It’s like sports.”

In the scenes, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) head back overseas to relaunch the iconic, Brooke’s Bedroom fashion line for Forrester Creations.

One of the more hilarious behind the scenes moment Arnold shared, was with now two-time Daytime Emmy-winning actor, Thorsten Kaye: “I was in makeup and this guy comes in and goes, ‘Hey, can I get you anything?’ I go, ‘I don’t know, do you have Sugar Free Red Bull?’ This guy who I thought was the crew — he had a very hard handshake — was Thorsten. The rich, wealthy father.”

As a preview of one of his scenes, Steffy will be running late to the flight and cannot locate her passport. Tom shared, “One thing that is true is you have a window to land at the airport. And if you mess around and you’re late, you will miss that (window). I like when there’s some reality to this stuff. It heightened the scene because Steffy forgot her passport.” Look for MacInnes Wood to pull off some “I Love Lucy-esque” moments.

Arnold added, “You expect (the drama) for a character, but it opens the doors for some hilarious stuff. It’s very funny because things are so dramatic that it lends itself to comedy.”

B&B is not Tom’s first foray into soaps, having previously appeared on General Hospital in the 90’s. He spoke on how he and ex-wife Roseanne Barr (who also appeared on GH as Jennifer Smith), were into daytime dramas, “Roseanne and I loved soap operas. (After I was on General Hospital), we ended up having all these folks on (Roseanne]) from the show, because soap operas are very good actors. They don’t mess around.”

Look for Arnold’s episodes to air on B&B on Tuesday, July 30th and Wednesday, July 31st.

So, what are your thoughts on Tom Arnold coming to B&B? What do you think of his respect for soap opera actors? Comment below.

The Young and the Restless’ Michael Mealor Says of Summer/Kyle/Claire Storyline, “It’s Going to Get Nasty”

On CBS Daytime’s The Young and the Restless, Kyle (Michael Mealor) seems to be spending more time with Claire (Hayley Erin) much to the chagrin of Summer (Allison Lanier). All this has gone down since little Harrison was held captive along with Claire by Jordan (Colleen Zenk) and rhe

While Summer has told her concerns over and over to Kyle, that she doesn’t like Claire getting so close to the little boy, Kyle seems to be somewhat smitten with Claire, or is he?

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Michael Mealor on the red carpet at last week’s 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards to get his thoughts on this possible love triangle, or as the popular Aretha Franklin tune says, “Who’s Zoomin Who?” Can anyone be trusted?

Mealor revealed that coming up on Y&R between Summer, Claire and Kyle that, “It’s going to get nasty. I gotta say that. No one trusts anyone, which makes good TV.”

To that end, it looks like no one in the Abbott family trusts Kyle either, to which Mealor replied, “Jack (Peter Bergman) doesn’t trust Kyle. Summer doesn’t trust Kyle. Diane (Susan Walters) doesn’t trust Kyle. Claire may be the only one, and I (may) have her fooled.”

Fans have been speculating that Claire isn’t the now “good’ girl she seems to be and that her psychotic tendencies may take over. Mealor says, “That’s a testament to Hayley (Erin) and how amazing she is because she plays this lovable character, but you just kind of go, something may be off here.”

Recently, Y&R aired the two-person episode featuring Kyle’s on-screen dad, Peter Bergman and Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) where Jack tries to get Nikki to stop her bender and sober up, but ultimately loses his own sobriety and almost loses his life. Mealor shared he saw the unbelievable performances when it was being filmed.

Michael expressed, “God, that’s such a fantastic episode. They showed up for that and they filmed that over two days –  split the episode in half. I was there on set shooting other scenes, but just watching them pour it out on the monitor. It was incredible.”

Watch our red carpet conversation with Michael Mealor below.

Now weigh-in; Do you think Claire will ultimately take to underhanded tactics to get Kyle and Harrison in her clutches and away from Summer? Let us know your theories via the comment section.
