Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful have been curious on the latest casting call for the CBS daytime drama series.

According to Soap Opera Digest the show is looking to fill the contract role of “Alisha”.

So, just who is “Alisha”?  The latest updated casting breakdown says they are looking for an “18-21 year-old who is Hispanic or Middle Eastern, sexy, Midwestern, unsophisticated and beautiful. ”

This breakdown was updated from the original, which sounded a lot like a recast for Reign Edwards role as Nicole Avant.  B&B casting directors are now saying to not submit talent for the earlier casting call which read:  “African-American female, 18-21 years old who is described as: assertive, sexy, Midwestern, unsophisticated and beautiful.”

The role is set to begin to tape in October.  Put on your casting director hats!  Which young actress do you think fills the requirements for the role?  Who can bring  it to BOLD?  Anyone from primetime or daytime television you have liked in roles, previously?  Let us know in the comment section below!

The way that the description was written, something tells me that Reign Edwards will be replaced by a new actress. Who that new actress is, I have no idea as I do not know any African-American actresses in that age range to say the least. Any ideas ladies and gents?

Who cares? The character will be gone in a year anyway.

Did I miss something? Is Reign Edwards leaving the role? I do not see why that needs to happen.

Nothing is wrong with Reign. The actress is fine. The storyline is going nowhere though.

I think she appears too young…the kiss with Thomas was “uncomfortable” to me…

This casting notice is all over the place as Middle Eastern and Midwestern (in terms of generic actress look) are completely different!

I think Samantha Boscarino might be a good fit! I would love to see her on B&B

I love how diverse the cast of B&B in terms of LGBT characters & the different ethnicities and nationalities on the show. You have the four full time African-American characters one being a transgender character and than obviously Ashleigh Brewer being the token Australian on the show and a new bisexual character coming on soon and now there is casting call for a Hispanic character. I love this. So long people complained about the lack of diversy and no LGBT characters. I’m glad that it seems like with this change it has killed all the gossip that Nicole was maybe being recast, I like Reign in the role so I don’t want to see a change of actress.

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talk Show Pilot In The Works

This fall, new talkers from Tamron Hall and Kelly Clarkson will be part of the daytime television landscape, and now comes word that Drew Barrymore may enter the space with a new talk show for her that is in development with the pilot being shot this coming week.

According to Variety, details of the proposed one-hour show are not all clear, but Drew is said to be one of the executive producers of the pilot episode and yet there is no showrunner attached to the project at this time.  Barrymore’s company, Flower Films is likely attached as well.

Back in 2016, Barrymore had a deal in place with Warner Brothers Telepictures for a talk show, but that never came to pass, in part to a lukewarm response from TV station groups at that time.

However now the new regime at CBS’ syndication arm is said to have ‘high hopes’ for the show and they feel that Drew will appeal and do well in the daytime arena.

Barrymore recently appeared in her third season of  Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet in its 30 episode season. Through her Flower Films she was been an executive producer on unscripted series including TLC’s Rattled and VH1’s Tough Love.

So, would you be interested. or intrigued to see what kind of show Drew Barrymore has to offer in daytime? Think she would be a good host? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
