Let’s not forget the Taylor vs Brooke story. Can’t stand the new Taylor prancing around like a 20 yr.old, makes me sick and Ridge holding them both off like he’s some big trophy going to the winner, should be lower, and don’t get me started on old grandpa, he and Donna are ridiculous.

People hate on this show but as of late it has been bringing it. It packs a good punch into its 30 minutes. The only other I find better right now is days. Yandr has improved slightly but that wedding and it’s supposed 70s theme was a miss and I understand the music budget issues but we couldn’t license a couple of great disco hits from the era instead we got elevator disco. Good for bold and the beautiful

I’m never a fan of poor, entitled Steffy. In this case she knew Sheila was unhinged so the worse thing Steffy could do was pursue her, make demands and deny access to Finn and Hayes yet again causing Sheila to snap. She reminds me of how Carly.would act. Finn got caught in the line of fire. Blame Steffy. The rest of the cast did what you would expect them to do. But IMO it was Kimberlin playing her role that increased B&B numbers.

Exactly right. Steffy has never controlled her mouth and from the get go she was in Shiela’s face, even in the alley. It was her own big mouth that caused Sheila to try shooting her, getting Finn instead. Even after that she couldn’t shut up even to the point of telling Sheila to call 911. Hopefully she’s learned something from this, but I doubt it.l

You know Sheila will be back and not before too long either. It was too easy for someone as wicked as Sheila to just be carted out in handcuffs. And don’t forget…I’m still waiting for Lauren on Y&R to find out the woman she shot dead years ago wasn’t Sheila. That is one loose end that has to be tied up before we say goodbye to Sheila.

Good scenes. I wonder what is in store for Sheila. Also, wait until Deacon finds out.

I see her kidnapping Hayes unless he has decided to wrap it up ! Where is Finns parents? They keep teasing us about another twist who knows but if we end up going back to the triangle of Hope Steffy and Liam then it will come back off DVR . The actors involved are even tire of that.

Finn’s adoptive mother is supposed to be keeping him alive somewhere, and Sheila will probably be admitted to a mental facility where she’ll escape and kidnap the baby.These are rumors, but sound very believable. I can’t see them putting her in maximum security without a trial.
Aside from that, I noticed Hope looked like she had a major makeover and her hair all highlighted. I like the fact that Brooke wasn’t all looking like a beautiful socialite but looking like someone whose been under so much stress.

Hi Violet I like KKL very much but we need to get past the triangle I’m way past These so called adults jumping back and forth it’s tough for me because I like Thorsten but he has never been Ridge to me. As for Brooke and Taylor still fighting over this guy it bugs me! Hope you are right b

That number will drop as it always does when they write out the magnificent Sheila.

Congrats! Brad may actually get B&B to overtake Y&R in the ratings game. The writing and performances by Kimberlin and Jacqueline make them front runners for next year’s Emmy awards. Kimberlin’s storyline has propelled this show as a must see each day. Now can’t wait for the Finn revelation that is sure to explode the canvas! CBS could be a real daytime powerhouse but they will have to address The Talk with its 1.6M viewers.

B&B was never my favorite but, I will.admit…when “they” pull out all the stops….the show is a runaway train you can’t look away from. Writing choices aside, the dramatic music, closeup shots, campy dialogue make for good soapy DRAMA.

General Hospital

Finn Carr is General Hospital’s New Rocco Falconeri

Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu’s son, Rocco is getting a new look! Enter young actor, Finn Carr, who will take over the role on-air beginning this week.

Carr is very familiar to TV fans who have watched Hot in Cleveland, Fuller House, Criminal Minds and more.  He has also appeared in streaming series for Netflix including Alexa & Katie, and most recently in an episode of Paramount+’s, I Carly.

Now that Rocco is a bit older (with Carr taking over the role), will he figure more into the story of Dante/Sam’s (Kelly Monaco) relationship, and the arrival of Dante’s buddy, Cody (Josh Kelly) on to the Port Charles scene?

The role of Rocco was first played by twins through 2017. Since then, Mason Tannous, O’Neill Monahan, and Brady Bauer have all played the part at one time or another.  In story, it was actually Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) who carried baby Rocco when she was implanted with Dante and Lulu’s stolen embryo.

Soap Opera Digest first reported this latest ‘Rocco’ casting switch in their latest issue on newsstands now.

So, please welcome Finn to the cast of GH in the comment section below!

Daytime Emmy-Winner Ted King Returns to B&B as Jack and Shares: “Sheila Might Want To Watch Her Back”

This week on The Bold and the Beautiful, things are set to take a startling turn.  First, in the latest promo for the CBS soap opera, Finn (Tanner Novlan) finally wakes up from his coma and Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) is right there with him! What will her next move be?

Meanwhile, newly crowned Daytime Emmy-winner for Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series, Ted King (Jack), will be back on the canvas and that will come with more twists and turns in this already twisted storyline!

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, the character of Jack returns to Los Angeles after the massive falling out with his wife, Li (Naomi Matsuda) – who is somewhere under water at this point – and his biological son, Finn.  As viewers know, Finn was the ‘by-product’ of Jack’s affair with Sheila many years ago.

Now learning that Sheila shot both Finn and Steffy, Jack is not going to just let that go by quietly. Far from it!

King explained to SOD: “Sheila might want to watch her back.” He added, “This is not a happy family. At this point we’ve only seen Jack and Sheila extremely distant – and at each other’s throat.  So, I don’t think it’s going to get any better.”

Watch the latest promo for B&B below.  Then weigh-in; Glad to have Ted King back on the canvas? Will Jack get swept up again in Sheila’s machinations? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Days Of Our Lives

Sal Stowers On Final DAYS Airdate Shares: “What An Incredible Journey These Past Seven Years Have Been”; Lamon Archey Adds, “Days fans, THANK YOU! We made a SUPERCOUPLE & a SUPERFAMILY #ELANI”

That’s a wrap for both Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey and their on-screen alter egos, Lani and Eli Grant.  Today on the July 1st episode of Days of our Lives,  the couple exited Salem paving the way for the real-life departures of Sal and Lamon who are going on to pursue other TV and film roles.

On her final airdate, Sal tweeted: “What an incredible journey these past seven years have been. To all our #Elani crew and #Days fans thank you for loving and supporting us the way you did. We will miss you much, I will miss you. Xx”

Lamon Archey also added his own tweets, sharing: “#Days fans, THANK YOU! We made a #SUPERCOUPLE & a #SUPERFAMILY #ELANI”

In story, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) had a special farewell for Eli, and Abe (James Reynolds) adopted Lani so he could be her father again, in very touching moments on the air-show.

Still the departures of Sal and Lamon, who became quite the popular duo as #Elani, will be a very big blow for the long-running NBC soap opera.  But in soap operas, you never know when your favorite actors or characters might return.

So, sad to see Lamon and Sal as Eli and Lani exit Salem today? Comment below.
