In a historic moment for daytime soaps, The Bold and the Beautiful trio of long running series star, Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) along with Thorsten Kaye (Ridge) and Don Diamont (Bill) have begun their shoot in the Middle East in the United Arab Emirates.

To kick off the festivities, the trio along with The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell held a press conference today in UAB that was posted online by Yahoo! News Maktoob.

During the press conference, photographers snapped pictures of the popular stars, and each of them spoke about the success of B&B with the audience in the United Arab Emirates, and how much they are looking forward to seeing the locations of Abu Dhabi and Dubai over the next few days and more!

In story, Brad Bell previewed: “I’ve been fascinated with Dubai and Abu Dhabi for quite some time because of their spectacular skylines rising up out of the desert on the Persian Gulf and the fantastic convergence of diverse international cultures. In our story, business mogul “Dollar Bill Spencer” (Don Diamont) whisks his fiancée, “Brooke Logan” (Katherine Kelly Lang) off to the Emirates to marry her at this new crossroads of the world.  Possessive ex-husband “Ridge Forrester” (Thorsten Kaye) follows them to impose his will on this romantic, stunt-filled action-packed adventure.”

Leave it to Ridge to not want or love Brooke, but to want to tell her whom she can marry and whom she can’t. Makes the whole emotional goodbye from today’s episode kind of meaningless. Bradley Bell writes what he wants, when he wants, whether it makes sense or not. If this was all about protecting his son from Bill as a stepdaddy, Ridge wouldn’t chase Brooke half way around the world. He’d sue for custody. I don’t want Brooke and Ridge together anymore, but I don’t understand why he’s sticking his nose in Brooke and Bill’s business.

I think it’s funny. Ridge said he can’t get over Brook having an affair with Bill. He couldn’t sleep with Brook in a bed that Bill slept in with Brook but he can sleep with Bill’s ex wife Katie, in Bill & Katie’s bed, in Bill & Katie’s house and play step-daddy to Bill & Katie’s son. WOW that is funny. I want to see him dump Katie and try to get Brook back and have her tell him to take a hike. He’s to high on himself right now.

Wow..For real..This is historic?!!! Filming a soap where human rights are violated..Where being gay is not legal and punishable by law and even death..Very disappointed in the way this news is being presented with joyous overtones..SAD!!

I doubt he even knows anything about what goes on over there and they would not even be there if KKL was not doing a triathlon over there. I would rather he spend that money on good writers. Lol!

Luv Thorsten Kaye ..
He is a handsome rugged sexy/manly!
CBS shows their 2 soaps in 32 countries..
ABC in USA and Canada, only..
(wonder why….?

Being shown in 32 countries makes lots of money for the CBS soaps to keep them going..

I think spoilers should be killed off!!
They kill the– mystery, suspense, surprises, anticipation..
”the thrill is gone” with spoilers..

Spoilers are a very bad thing ..

It’s like reading a great mystery book/story and reading the ending before reading the book..
(then why read the book)

Bell is going to start that darn triangle crap again. Is this all they can write o this show. This is why I didnt want Ridge with Katie. They are great, but Bell is gonna change Ridge back to being a selfish man, wanting only what he wants. Katie will be hurt. what was the purpose in making Thorsten Kay make ridge his own. more relaxed, confident. loving with katie if your gonna have him chase to the middle east. The new ridge would just file for custody if necessary…..ridiculous…always gotta make the show centered around Brooke. Bell is in love with this woman he has created.

Stop the damn triangles and near incest!!! There comes a point when men and women of a certain age need to stop acting like children. And there comes a point when these endless quick courtships, quick weddings, annulments/divorces, and all become tiresome. Romance has payoffs when it builds between two people. I cannot take characters or stories seriously when all they do is play on the bedroom carousel. There are in LA!!! They areinternational business people in fashion!!! Give us a stable couple on which to anchor this show and give characters something meaningful to do than sleep through each other’s families.

Ive only watch briefly in the past…now i watch it everyday at night on tvgn…its not such a bad show…enjoy Quinn and Wyatt!!!

B&B is like a bag of potato chips, you take one and it tastes good so you take another, and then another, and then another, and before you know it you ate the whole bag and the ones on the bottom are tainted, you get violently ill and throw up. You swear off potato chips, but maybe in a month or two you are nibbling on them again.

Right now, based on your comment you are the ” hey this ain’t so bad,” phase, but keep watching long enough you will reach a point you will want to throw a brick at your television in utter frustration, wonder why you watch such junk, swear to stop, but will in a couple of days, been peeking in again, thinking ” this isn’t so bad”.

This is the sad confession of B&B junkie– run jimh, run before Brad Bell gets you hook on his endless ride of triangles, characters that never grow up and musical chairs of partners among family members. I swear this show is addictive, but not in a good way. Get out while you can’t.man, save yourself. LOL.

You make me laugh with that last line and i mean that in a good way…i watched this show in the past when they had Sally Spectra, Stephanies homeless adventure and when Liam nearly married Hope…Quinn, Wyatt and Alley have me watching daily…your warning is too late..help, i cant escape for now…lol

Let’s be honest if it was as bad as some people say they would not be watching it and the ones that claimed to quit until Taylor comes back is funny too. How would you know she was coming back unless your watching or reading about it? How about we just enjoy it!

Impeachment Hearings On Broadcast Networks Show Ratings Much Lower Than The Daytime Soap Operas They Are Preempting

In an infuriating article written by FOX news, off of a study from NewsBusters, the news outlet and others have come to the realization that all of us who want our soaps back on the air already know.  That is … that the network daytime dramas ratings are far better on a day-to-day basis than people tuning into network TV during the day to watch the impeachment hearings of Donald Trump.

Soap fans have been furious that in the afternoon network TV is pulling their soaps off their normal airtime across all coasts.  Daytime soap viewers feel that all of the 24-hour news cable outlets should be the the place to go to see the hearings during the day; as to not to preempt the drama on General Hospital, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and the Beautiful.

Just for the record, the study via NewsBusters showed that on day one of the impeachment hearing the networks scored as such: CBS averaged 1.52 million, ABC  1.29 million viewers, and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.   Thursday’s were even worse with CBS averaging 1.4 million, ABC 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

Now compare that to the weekly daytime soap ratings and total viewers which while it ebbs and slows is still way about this.  According to the study: “The Young & The Restless” has been averaging 3.7 million viewers during the 2019-2020 season and The Bold & The Beautiful averages 3.15 million viewers. ABC’s General Hospital averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s Days of Our Lives averages 1.95 million viewers.”

Share your thoughts on the pre=emptions of your favorite soaps, and how the impeachment hearings are, of course, not bringing in higher number in the day-part via the comment section below.

General Hospital Releases Extended Promo “We Have To Lean Into Hope”

As the ABC daytime drama series, General Hospital, continues to be preempted by the impeachment hearings of President Donald Trump, and episodes are not being made available on any other platform at this time, two videos were posted in last 24 hours to the official General Hospital social media accounts.

To tide you over (while you are clamoring for all-new episodes of GH) the soap released an extended promo featuring the folks in Port Charles filled with lots of joy, hope, and love.  It’s main message, “We have to lean into hope” – as the series tells us to “sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.”

Take a look at some of the reunions, hugs, and special moments featuring the Q’s, Corinthos, Cassadine and other clans in the promo below.

In addition, Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) along with Jophielle Love (Violet) were featured in another video, where the key messaging to fans is that they are currently taping all-new episodes of GH, and that viewers should keep tuned ans posted to GH’s social channels for updates on when new episodes of GH will return.

As of late, GH has been on the upswing in the ratings, too.  So, it’s always frustrating for everyone when weeks of preemptions hit the daytime viewers  experience to enjoy the on-going stories of the soaps.

‘Ambitions’ Canceled By OWN After One Season

After an excellent first season of drama and backstabbing, the soapy nighttime Ambitions has been canceled by OWN.

The cable outlet offered up this statement from OWN President, Tina Perry: “We’re thankful to Will Packer, Jamey Giddens and the entire cast and crew of Ambitions for their creativity and hard work on the show. Every week they delivered great drama, intrigue and a lot of fun storytelling.  We look forward to continue working with Will Packer and his talented team of collaborators in the future.”

The series which starred Robin Givens as Stephanie Lancaster Carlisle was hailed as a multigenerational family saga centered around classic soap character, Stephanie, who finds herself going head to head with some of the most powerful and deceitful players in the city of Atlanta and we learn she can play deceitful like nobody’s business … too!

Ambitions was produced by Will Packer Media in association with Lionsgate and Lionsgate-owned distributor Debmar-Mercury. Packer was executive producer. Arkadie was executive producer/showrunner. Writer Jamey Giddens and Will Packer Media’s Sheila Ducksworth also served as executive producers.

Givens took to Instagram and shared her disappointment on the cancellation. “mood 🙁 found out last week #Ambitions wouldn’t be returning for a second season ….”
