The Bold and the Beautiful Makes History In The United Arab Emirates!



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.”

Parts of eight episodes to be filmed this week in the UAE will air in the U.S. this year from May 23rd through June 6th, while audiences across the Middle East will see them on broadcaster Dubai One a year later in 2015.

Now watch and hear what Katherine, Don, and Thorsten had to say from the Middle East! Then let us know, what do you think about the show traveling to UAB to film upcoming scenes from B&B?

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!

Excellent points, Omar.

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 agree I love the new Ridge. He is so handsome and a real man”

I hope Ridge isn’t trying to get with Brooke. I love him and Katie together.

Way to go with the spoilers, now we know Brooke and Bill are going to get engaged again.

Spoilers ruin these shows…i try to avoid them…i miss being suprised…its what made us tune in tomorrow!!!

Exactly what I thought.

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)

NuRidge is a bigger hypocrite than old Ridge.

I can bang your sister but you cant be with who you want?!?!?!?!!?

I look forward to seeing the episodes, but could have done without the spoilers.

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.

I think you’re on to something! She wanted to go on vacation there, somhe decided to go with story there!

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’, 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, 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!

Mark Consuelos Celebrates One-Year Anniversary as Co-Host of ‘Live’ Alongside Kelly Ripa

Today, April 17th marks a full-year since Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo, All My Children) took over the co-hosting duties of ‘Live” alongside his wife, and longtime co-host, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley, All My Children).

Consuelos replaced Ryan Seacrest who are six seasons decided to be back on the west coast full-time. For Consuelos, now having the opportunity to work off of Ripa as co-hosts has been something of adjustment for him, but viewers have been eating it up.

Live with Kelly and Mark has remained the No. 1 entertainment talk show on television over the past year, growing 3% in average total viewers to 2.23M per episode.  It is also the most-watched daytime talk show in the last year in key demos of women 18-49 and women 25-54. All of this, since the real-life marrieds teamed-up.

Speaking with Deadline, Kelly Ripa shared why the two are gelling on-screen, “I do think that there is something very possibly relatable about our relationship. We have disagreements like a normal couple, and we’re not afraid to let them unfold on the air and in front of America, and I think people find a lot of themselves in that.”

Mark weighed in how he has progressed as a host, and what he could improve at, sharing, “I’d like to get better at my interviewing skills. I’d like to get better at reading a teleprompter…I think I’m getting better at throwing to commercial. The other day in the middle of the show as we go to commercial, my sign off was ‘See you guys around.’ I mean, the show wasn’t over. The most obvious thing to say would be, ‘We’ll be back right after this.’ But I just said, ‘See you around.’ So we went to commercial and one of the producers (goes) ‘What was that?’ I don’t know… So for the next few sign offs, as a joke, I’d say ‘See you around.’ We got a kick out of it.”

Meanwhile, Kelly has given huge props to Mark, “I find Mark utterly compelling, really interesting, super funny, and he’s bold in a way like nobody else. He says what’s on his mind. If he’s thinking it, he says it.  I’ve done this a long time and oftentimes people will adjust their natural personalities to pander to what they think the audience wants to hear, and Mark will tell people what he thinks, and he doesn’t care if it’s not a popular opinion. It gives him an edginess that I think is really missing in the landscape today. Everybody’s so afraid to say anything, and Mark is unafraid to say exactly what he’s thinking.”

In a statement, Debra O’Connell, President News Group and Networks, Disney Entertainment shared, We could not be more thrilled with how Mark has seamlessly joined the show family as permanent co-host. His undeniable charisma and his and Kelly’s natural chemistry are evident as they deliver the laughs and smiles to our viewers each morning. We are incredibly proud of how Live has continued to evolve and that the audience is responding so enthusiastically.”

So, do you think Mark Consuelos is the best co-host his wife Kelly Ripa has ever had on ‘Live’? How would you say he is doing as co-host after one full year on the job? Comment below.
