THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Maya and Julius Have It Out On Her Wedding Day!

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.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.
