Fans of CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful noticed that the series this week rolled out their new updated opening credits adding their latest cast members to the mix.

Now included in the sequence are: Rome Flynn (Zende), Reign Edwards (Nicole) and Pierson Fode (Thomas), but with that comes the deletion of Winsor Harmon, who has been beloved as Thorne Forrester for decades.

After inquiries from fans, Harmon took to his Twitter page to address his status with the series adding: “I want to thank everyone for 17 Beautiful years playing Thorne I love you all Thank U for the amazing run B&B you’ll forever B a part of me.”  While Winsor made that statement to his followers, B&B reports that the actor is still on recurring status with the series.

WatchThe Bold and the Beautiful’s latest opening sequence update after the jump.  Are you glad Rome, Reign, and Pierson are added in, but disappointed there is no Winsor sighting?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

If the show is boring as it has been lately. It doesn’t matter who is in the opening credits.
They still had Steffie and Hope there long after they were off the program.

I believe Jennifer Gareis has been on recurring for a long time, they’ve just taken a while to update their credits.

Winsor Harmon and Thorne Forrester deserve better from THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL. I can not understand why a solid sustaining story line cannot be developed for this talented actor and legacy character. And no, he need not romance a Logan sister or a shirttail relative! He has lost his mother, two wives, his only child, not to mention friends. There are two Forrester sisters out there, too. I would rather see them on the canvass more than some of the progeny and recycled plots.

I agree, I always liked Thorne and thought he was sexy. B&B hasn’t been good in years anyway.

I never understood why Thorne is such an underused character when back in the day, he carried a lot of storylines, Hopefully the show starts thinking about what to do with the character instead of just bringing him in for a cameo then sending him back into the woodwork.

It’s sad that Thorne is not part of the show. When Ali died, I thought Thorne was going to have story, but he was on for like two eps. What gives? Brad could write story for Thorne and Felicia, but chooses not to. Our loss.

I wish they would give Donna story too. But Katie is floundering as well. I enjoy Caroline and Ridge, but not Thomas.

Quinn and Deacon should have more story too. Spread the love!

I have been FF through most of B&B lately. It just is not holding my interest. I feel that they are repeating story lines.

Thorne should be front and center on B&B. He is a legacy character, portrayed by a talented actor, and the only true Forrester son. Instead of watching characters like Quinn, Deacon, Wyatt, Ivy, Steffy and Liam, there should be long-term, front-burner story for Thorne, and for that matter, Felicia too. Recently though, with the next generations of Forresters, Logans and Spencers coming to the forefront, B&B has seemingly dropped its older set. Even Eric and Brooke don’t have front-burner story, and they are the sole remaining original cast members on the show. Y&R has been able to generate story for… Read more »

I hate how Brad Bell doesn’t know how to write for Thorne yet seems to know how to write for transexuals. He also has characters/actors come on for six months and then drop them. Too bad he isn’t more like his dad’s storytelling.

I tuned into B&B a couple of times and found it to be pretentiousness, totally not natural, phony/fake, way out of the real world..
just the way I saw it, many fans love love it ..

Finally took Hope off the canvas… good …means they aren’t planning to get her back!

A lot of updates in this version! Removed: Donna, Hope, Aly, Thorne, and Oliver Added: Steffy, Thomas, Nicole, Zende Updated: Caroline, Maya, Pamela, Deacon Oliver has been recurring for years, with Aly’s death his removal doesn’t surprise me in the least. And Donna was bumped to recurring months ago (read those closing credits, people, it’s a tell-tale sign!), so that doesn’t surprise me either. Thorne did surprise me, but I guess the writing has been on the wall about the commitment to that character for ages. Glad Hope is finally removed! I am pretty sure she’s been off for at… Read more »

I just ff through all the Rick and his wife’s sister stuff. Absolutely cannot stand Thomas. The baby is Ridges because Thomas slept with Caroline once and two days later she was pregnant. This is such bull. But I guess they need a reason for busy body Brooke to butt in. I can barely watch this crap anymore. So sad because for a time it was entertaining

Bi!l legally changed Wyatt’s name to Spencer and Quinn got married to Deacon. sooooo. what is up with Oliver?

I’m liking the change of putting Thomas with Ivy. I want Wyatt and Steffy. Liam is getting boring and does better working with his dad than in the fashion biz. Wyatt working with jewelry makes more sense to me to complement Steffy’s fashion business.

B&B is whack, they keep refurbishing the same old story lines when it comes to these Forrester women and men. I know Ivy and Thomas aren’t related by blood but it’s still borderline creepy that he keeps going after women in his family. I miss Harmon and his portrayal of Thorne, he’s easy on the eye and deserved a lot better than what he had been getting in the past few years.

I was noticing, when viewing my tv guide on my tv..John Mccook isn’t listed on it….THE gal who played Donna was slowly written out long ago..as was “Thorne”….IN reading on other info…B&B might lose “Ridge” in awhile too..due to his constant travel to east/west coast and rundown from it. ..Its been about a year since I ve stopped watching the show. Ditto with Young and Restless. I lost interest..due to the way the “modern ” writers were writing junk..and the actors brought on..are awful..AND..Im not into the gay/transgender thing being front and center storyline… SO, I watch a bit of… Read more »

I have heard on the grapevine that Jennifer Gareis had been secretly dropped from B&B earlier this year. I believe that she was already on recurring status before this happened. And you know who else should be added to the opening sequence? Charlie. He appears even more than Deacon does!

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Former ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood Comes Out as Gay

This morning on the highly-promoted sit-down interview with GMA’s Robin Roberts, former ‘Bachelor’ lead Colton Underwood, revealed that he was gay and that he has finally come to terms with it.

The ex-football star shared: “Obviously this year’s been a lot for a lot of people, and it’s probably made a lot of people look themselves in the mirror and figure out who they are and what they’ve been running from or what they’ve been putting off in their lives. For me, I’ve ran from myself for a long time and I’ve hated myself for a long time, and I’m gay. I came to terms with that that earlier this year and have been processing it. The next step in all of this was sort of letting people know. I’m still nervous, but it’s been a journey for sure. I’m like the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. That means the world to me.”

Underwood expressed he went through a very dark time to be able to reveal his truth: “I got into a place in my personal life that was dark and bad. I can list a bunch of different things, but they’d all be excuses. I think overall the reason why now is because I got to a place where I didn’t think I was ever going to share this. I would rather have died than say ‘I’m gay,’ and I think that was sort of my wake up call. There was a moment in L.A. that I woke up and I didn’t think I was going to wake up,” he said. “I didn’t have the intentions of waking up, and I did. And I think for me that was my wake up call, that, ‘This is your life. Take back control.’ I think looking back even beyond that is… even just suicidal thoughts and driving my car close to a cliff, like, ‘Oh, if this goes off the cliff, it’s not that big of a deal.’ I don’t feel that anymore.”’

As to the questions or anger that ‘Bachelor Nation’ are going to have that Underwood misled the female contestants on his season, or he duped the audience, Colton said: “I thought a lot about this…Do I regret being ‘The Bachelor?’ And handling it the way that I did?’  I do think I could have handled it better, I’ll say that. I just wish I wouldn’t have dragged people into my own mess of figuring out who I was. I genuinely mean that, but also at the same time I can say ‘I’m sorry’ to all of those women, I can also say ‘thank you,’ because without them and without the ‘Bachelor’ franchise, I don’t know if this would have ever come out.”

Colton was highly-promoted during his season as the “Virgin Bachelor”.  He acknowledged he was indeed a virgin at that time, but it was because he was gay, but just “didn’t know how to handle it”.   Underwood also shared he was thankful to God that he was cast on the reality-competition as one of its season’s leads because he thought that would make him straight.  He told Roberts in his talk with God, ‘Finally, you’re letting me be straight. Finally, you’re giving me a wife, a fiancée, and then I’m going to have the kids, then I’m going to have the house, and then I’m going to have all this.’

As to his contentious break-up with ‘Bachelor’ contestant, Cassie Randolph, where she had at one time had a restraining order put on Underwood and later revoked it, he admitted: “I would like to say sorry for how things ended. I messed up, I made a lot of bad choices.”  But told Robin Roberts, he indeed loved Cassie, sharing, “That only made it harder and more confusing for me. if I’m being very honest, I loved everything about her. And it’s hard for me to articulate exactly what my emotions were, and going through that relationship with her was, because I obviously had an internal fight going on. I would just say that I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart. I’m sorry for any pain and emotional stress I caused. I wish it wouldn’t have happened the way it did. I wish that I would have been courageous enough to fix myself before I broke anybody else.”

Underwood shared that his upbringing in the Catholic church and being in the world of high school, college, and pro sports contributed to why he never came out previously, citing,: ” learned in the Bible that gay is a sin. I had made mistakes in my sports and in my athletic career, and when you make mistakes, ‘that play was gay’ or that was a bad… gay was always affiliated with a connotation of negativity, and I think there’s a lot of things when I look back, like, ‘No wonder I held it in.’”

So, were you surprised that Colton revealed he was gay? How do you feel about the journey he expressed in his interview on GMA to speak his truth? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
