Monday’s episode of CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful featured top notch writing, and raw and touching performances from Obba Babatundé (Julius) and Karla Mosley (Maya) as the highly-anticipated pick-up from last Friday’s cliffhanger played out.

Maya, who is confronted by her parents Julius and Vivienne (Anna Marie Horford) inside the Forrester mansion, is shocked when at first Julius calls Maya his “little girl”.  But the tender moment is called to a halt when parents and child discuss their hurt, shame and humiliation that each has gone through since their son Myron turned into their daughter Maya.   Old wounds are discussed, tears are shed, and many of the issues facing many in the transgender community with their parents, and that of overall acceptance, and how it can fracture a family, are brought to the forefront.

By the end of the episode, Julius and Vivienne can’t quite come to terms with Maya, and so they are going to leave town and head to the airport – they originally said they showed up to take Maya’s sister Nicole (Reign Edwards) back to Illinois with them and away from the influence of Maya and Los Angeles.

As her parents begin to leave, a defeated Maya says, “Thanks for coming by.”  It is then that Julius walks over to her and says, “Stand up.  Stand up, Maya.”   He then says, “I will try.  I am set in my ways and in my thinking.  But the one thing, that I never stop being is your father.  So, I will try to get to know the woman that you have become, and the life that you created for yourself.  I will try to find a way to fit in, this I promise you.  What do you say?”   After asking for a hug and some love in return, Maya hugs her father in tears and says, “Daddy!”

Kudos to the writing team of The Bold and the Beautiful who have not disappointed in one beat of this storyline, and have brought to the forefront the journey of a trans woman illustrating through the character of Maya Avant.

Watch the emotional scenes between Maya and Julius after the jump! Then let us know what you thought of the performances, the writing, and if you were moved to tears?

Yes the performances didn’t disappoint however it was too quick to be believable as this should have been more than just one airing between Maya and her Dad. Too quick!

Nothing about this story works or is believable in any way!! First off, Rick is a reckless ticking time bomb on a good day. He should have had his rankest meltdown ever when Myron told him he was a dude!! Completely postal a la Crying Game. In Brad Bell’s rush to show that this is a story about acceptance, he is completely leaving out the meat (pardon the pun) of the story. When everyone is gushing love and tolerance and unicorns and rainbows…why even bother to tell the story? It has been an Epic Fail on every level. It is… Read more »

Eileen Davidson, Vince Van Patten & Caitlyn Jenner In Cast Of New Sitcom ‘Duke of the Valley’

A fictional apartment building featuring a set of very eccentric tenants in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California is the backdrop for a new indie comedy sitcom based on the memoirs of the late Dick Van Patten, best known for his role on the ABC series, Eight is Enough.

The show entitled, Duke of the Valley is co-created by Dick’s son, Vince Van Patten and his grandson, Duke Van Patten, who also wrote the series together. In addition, Vince is also directing and one of the producers of the series.

According to The Wrap, Caitlyn Jenner will star as Heather a transgender “white trash” woman who sells perfume at the counter of Macy’s.  Others in the cast include: Vince Van Patten’s wife and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R and Ex- DAYS and RHOBH), who plays Brenda, a washed-up actress who can’t accept that her career in showbiz is over.

Vince Van Patten takes on the role of a homeless killer named Skipy, who demands to camp outside the apartment building.  Meanwhile, Duke Van Patten plays himself as an actor in Hollywood living in a dingy apartment building in the San Fernando Valley that happens to be owned by his ‘crazy uncle Jimmy”, played by none other than James Van Patten.

Duke of the Valley is currently in production, but without a network or streaming service attached to it yet.  Thus, no release date has been set as this time either.

So, what do you think of the premise of Duke of the Valley featuring Caitlyn, Eileen and Vincent? Comment below!
