With layered performances abound, and compelling writing, The Bold and the Beautiful’s wedding between Maya Avant  (Karla Mosley) and Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) which began earlier this week has provided the CBS Daytime drama series plenty of material and riveting emotional scenes that may have the word “Emmy” written all over it, when all is said and done.

On Tuesday’s episode, after previously hearing her father call her a “freakshow”, Maya calls Julius (Obba Babatundé) out on his true feelings towards her in a major confrontation that goes down in front of the wedding party.

Julius unable to accept Maya’s transition from being his son Myron, hurls some very hurtful words, even questioning what is wrong with Rick for wanting to marry his daughter!  Later, Vivienne (Anna Marie Horsford) reveals her guilt for turning Maya away as a young child at the orders of her husband.   It was drama at it’s best!

In a interview with GLAAD, Karla Mosley answered the question: “Maya’s story is one of few scripted portrayals of a trans woman dating a non-trans man. Meanwhile, tabloids and gossip blogs continue to shame non-trans men who date trans women. What do you hope the audience takes away from this portrayal?”  Karla responded: “I loved Mia Isabella’s response during the Tyga “scandal.”  She said, ‘If a celebrated man loves a transgender woman, or possibly did, that’s news? It shouldn’t be news – it should be normal for anyone and everyone to love who they choose.’  I don’t think I can say it any better than that. I think we are all being asked to look at the prejudice we might not even know we have and to realize how it might be hurting people, and in the case of many trans people, how our unacknowledged prejudices might be putting their lives in danger. I am hopeful that our storyline and this wave of trans visibility will result in greater acceptance, basic respect for people’s private lives and empathy across the board.

Watch the wedding showdown between Maya and Julius below and when Maya first overhears the heartbreaking truth of what her father really thinks of her.  Then, weigh in:  What did you think of the performances of Obba Babatundé, Anna Marie Horsford and Karla Mosley in the key scenes?  What have you thought of the writing of this groundbreaking story for American daytime storytelling?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I really enjoyed the episode(s). I thought Karla Mosley, Anna Marie Horsford & Obba Babatunde were exceptional. You could certainly feel the pain on all sides of this story.

I have been very impressed with the acting of Maya/Karla and Rick/Jacob throughout this storyline, but WOW to Julius/Obba and Vivienne/Anne Marie, especially at the wedding.

Had my doubts about this story line but am enjoying it so much more than than the rest of the endless repetitive goings on. Watching the Maya-Rick story is like seeing a different B&B. I only hope after the wedding chapter, the couple is dropped, lost, broken up. It is refreshing not to have the mopey dopey triangles and quadrangles among near relatives (or parent and child!). Mosley is knocking it out of the park, and I love Babatunde and Horsford as her parents.

Sounds like more poor me Maya and I deserve the best! Sickening considering both Maya and Rick are self centred bullies lacking any conscience whatsoever.

I find them unwatchable and now have turned off B&B because the stories have become unpalatable and the characters currently are ALL LACKING! There is no one left to root for.

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
