This week, viewers will find out just which Forrester will reign supreme in the fashion world, as patriarch Eric Forrester (John McCook) goes up against his son Ridge Forrester’s (Thorsten Kaye) designs in the ultimate fashion show-down.

However, as the story goes, Eric is very sick and has been given only six months to live, although it is unclear just exactly what is happening to him.

Online reports and reactions have suggested. or teased, that somehow one of two original B&B cast members, John McCook, may actually be exiting the show.

To further fuel speculation, and to start the week with a rather ominous messsge on X, The Bold and the Beautiful’s supervising producer, Casey Kasprzyk, posted a photo of Eric Forrester hanging over the Forrester mansion mantel.

The post was accompanied by the words: “Filming 10 shows this week, and let’s just say it’s going to be very emotional for everyone. #BoldandBeautiful #EricForrester”

So now the question becomes, does Eric die and the CBS daytime drama series will be taping episodes revolving the characters funeral? Is Eric fighting for his life and all his loved ones will share heartbreaking scenes that bring him out of his dire medical condition? What could the show be teasing with that post on X? Food for thought.

Now, let us know in the comment section below, what you think is about to happen on B&B surrounding Eric Forrester, when they tape 10 new episodes this week as previewed by Casey Kaspryzk?

I heard he signed another contract. 3 years or something like that , so I expect some miracle to happen.

Exactly!
Why should we even care about this story since we know John McCook signed a new contract?

Katie was told she was going to die told her Not to have BABY, i’d love to see eric to over. Come this maybe given wrong results and he’s OK He can have a miracle too

I for one hope that Eric dies. It’s time for the Forresters – Felicia, Kristen, Thorne, Rick and Bridget – to take back their place on the show. I haven’t watched since Stephanie died and the omnipresence of Steffy, Liam & Hope. The scenarios have been identical for 10 years. Eric’s death would renew the stories.

I agree I’m sick of liam and hope and lippy I mean Steffy but don’t kill eric

You are one sick puppy, go find another fashion show that might fit your own special style, maybe you can fulfill your needs better.

I respect everyone’s opinions, which does not seem to be your case madam. Shame! I don’t know yours. You must be a fan and good for you!

Stop keeping the die hard fans of John McCook in suspense!! Its not fair tgat we wait. Uts stressf

Have Liam crushed by asteroid or something but keep Eric alive and well!

Don’t let him die. Retire and if he chose to do a few here and there… but not for

I would like Liam to leave but Bradley Bell is obsessed with his crybaby character. I have nothing against the actor but the character is detestable and no longer has his place just like Sheila whose redemption has become impossible.
Eric’s death would at least have the merit of bringing back his children and revisiting the rivalry between Thorne / Rick and Ridge for the succession. Bridget could finally see Deacon again. Felicia & Bill could become a couple…

Who cares what you think and if the other Foresters come back or not, who needs them and why does Bridget need an excuse to see Deacon again? Why does Bill and Felicia have to be a couple, this could have happened years ago. Why don’t you write and see if you can be a new writer as you have so many ideas.

I’m giving my opinion, that’s all. I assume you have yours. I imagine you haven’t WATCHED the first 20 years because you would be just as disappointed as many fans. The drop in audiences in recent years is proof of this. Don’t mind.

Don’t let Eric die, and keep Shelia to kill off Steffi. Keep liberty bibbity to make horny hope stay away from Manquin man. As for Britget, if she remarries Deacon shed be Hopes step mother/sister. Eww.

For these contracts I thought I read that every 6 months producers can chose to end contract. Wonder if it’s something like this. Have loved McCook ever since he was Lance on Y and R.

It’s actually every 3 months (13 weeks), or it used to be, anyway, with some rare exceptions. That said, I find it hard to believe that they just signed him to a 3-year contract only to end it. But this is B&B, which plays by its own rules, so who knows? Personally, I’d be moving heaven and earth to keep John McCook around and keep him happy.

If he dies I could care less as most viewers make it all about the three ding bat Logan sisters! If he dies please take all of them with you. If he was going to die where are his children ? Ugh this show

Keep Eric get rid of Sheila and Liam or find him something productive to do besides being a pain in everyone’s butt

I agree keep Eric and they should have been got rid of Sheila I always love seeing Eric he so handsome for his age so they would be making a big mistake if they don’t keep him

Please make liam & Sheila go away. They not good to look at. Go away !!!!

I still watch but I call it who’s doin brook !

Can’t stand Sheila or Liam

He isn’t going anywhere because he just signed another 3 years. Ridge (who is not a Forrester) needs to go. His real kids need to come back to support their dad and help run company

Sorry all but I think the Eric storyline is one of the best in years. Thanks to the 2 writers and to the directors for heart breaking scenes despite a great fashion show that brings B&B back to its roots. I know the feelings that they are having when you find out your dad is dying. Too close for comfort. Great performances should bring Emmy nominations. Also great to see Steffi back with Finn. Let them fight Sheila together!

GH’s Dominic Zamprogna Opens Up on Concerns that Dante Was A-Goner: “There’s Any Number of Ways Comas Can Go”

When Detective Dante Falconeri was shot by a Pikeman henchman, and Jason (Steve Burton) was revealed alive and well, it put actor Dominic Zamprogna in a coma, and a bad one in soap terms, at that. For awhile there, it was touch and go for Dante.

The good news is Dante pulled through and is now back to his old self, and just in time for Dominic Zamprogna’s 15th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, which is June 22nd.

Dominic spoke to Soap Opera Digest on his milestone, and reflected back on the fan response from earlier this year when it may have appeared he was exiting the show for a second time.

Zamprogna shared, “It’s nice to hear you say that people were worried about me – when I went into Frank’s (Valentini, EP, GH) office and he told me I was going into a coma, I started to worry about me (laughs)!”

From working on GH for a decade and a half now, Zamprogna has seen his fair share of comas, and in fact, his then on-screen wife, Lulu Spencer Falconeri was written off the show having never awakened from her coma.

“There’s any number of ways comas can go,” said the popular GH star. “People joke, ‘Oh, you’ve got easy work.’ And it’s like, ‘Yeah, as long as it’s an on-screen coma! I don’t want to be in an off-screen coma, because then I’m not on the show!” But honestly, that means the world because we all care what people think about us, you know? And if people are happy to have me around, it feels good, obviously. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t.”

So, are you glad that Dante is still alive and kicking? Did you think the show might write-off Dante after he was shot a few months back? Is it time, as Dominic head towards his 20th anniversary with the soap opera, for the powers-that-be to bring Lulu out of her coma? Should Dante and Sam (Kelly Monaco) eventually tie the knot?

Y&R’s Joshua Morrow Reveals on Losing the Role of B&B’s Dylan: “I Was Meant to Play Nick. Not Getting Dylan was the Greatest ‘Failure’ of My Life.”

Can you imagine that if things had turned out differently, The Young and the Restless’ Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman) would not be celebrating his 30th anniversary on the top-rated soap opera, but instead might be welcoming his son to the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful alongside of him?

In several interesting twists, Morrow, who this Friday, June 21st, celebrates his 30th anniversary on the show as Nick Newman (standalone episode and all) spoke about his original audition for CBS daytime that had him going up for the part of B&B’s Dylan Shaw, a Forrester Creations intern. As the behind the scenes story goes, that part when to Dylan Neal.

Joshua spoke to Soap Hub on his humble daytime beginnings, recalling, “B&B was a long, drawn out, multi-week thing where I had to audition like three times, and then, I had to go in for producers, and then, there was a screentest. He added, “It was demolishing. I was like, super cocky, and I was like, ‘Oh, everybody loves me.'”

From all indications, it was that audition for Dylan that led him to his prized Genoa City role of Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) and Victor’s (Eric Braeden) son. As Morrow remembered it, shortly after meeting with series Bill Bell (then co-creator and EP and head writer. plus then executive producer Ed Scott, and Heather Tom (ex-Victoria, Y&R, then Katie, B&B), he was hired to play Nick.

At from that moment on as Morrow explained it, “It was kismet. I was meant to play Nick. Not getting Dylan was the greatest ‘failure’ of my life.”  Now in the summer of 2024, Joshua’s son, Crew Morrow, has landed his first soap opera role as the new Will Spencer on The Bold and the Beautiful, the son of Katie (the aforementioned Tom), and Don Diamont (Bill).

While father and son will be on opposing but sister soap operas, might a cross over from Nick to Los Angeles be the ticket, so Joshua can finally say he was on B&B and someone share a scene or two or three with his on-screen son? Ya, never know in soapland.

So, what do you think about Joshua losing the role of B&B’s Dylan to Dylan Neal which set up him becoming a cast member at Y&R? Comment below.

Arianne Zucker Reflects Back on the ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape with Donald Trump, and Speaks to Her Exit from Days of our Lives

It’s been eight years, but somehow seems like ages ago, that Arianne Zucker was thrust into the mainstream public limelight, unfortunately not for her work as Nicole on Days of our Lives, but for the Access Hollywood taped that surfaced when former president Donald Trump  and current Republican nominee, visited the set of the (then) NBC soap opera, and met Zucker.

The tape captured a hot mic moment between Trump and then ‘Access’ host Billy Bush inside of their bus which featured lewd remarks about Zucker between the two men.

Speaking on the moment, Zucker opened about it on Rachel Uchitel’s Miss Understood podcast, where the video version of the interview is now on Uchitel’s You Tube Channel. Back in 2005, Arianne was the scene partner with Trump in his Apprentice/Days of our Lives crossover appearance, because her character of Nicole was at the time a gold-digger.

Zucker shared of her on set experience with Trump from 2005, “I had a great experience. He was lovely, and I had no idea anything behind the scenes was happening. So, it never affected me.” Next in October 2016, Arianne says she it got a call from her manager at the time when the Access Hollywood tapes came to light and that is when she first heard about the situation.

The actress and life coach reflected back, “Everybody has spoken poorly about somebody in their lifetime. I don’t care who you are, everybody has, it’s just people get caught on camera doing it. Unfortunately, that happens all the time. And if you’ve ever gone to a fraternity party, these things happen. So (when she later read the taped comments) I’m going, ‘sounds like something my fraternity guys I know would say.’ But I just didn’t see it in the way that people were seeing it.’”

Expressing why she never made an official comment when the press were asking for one, Arianne revealed, “I didn’t make a comment though, because I was in fear of losing my job. So I didn’t say anything.”  She added, “I felt attacked by the media because I knew all they wanted. I mean, the biggest thing was to get Trump off the ballot. I was like, that is not my job.”

Later, Arianne explained she felt she received no protection from the situation. “I got no apology from my place of employment. I really got no apology from NBC. I felt I had no protection. ”

DAYS fans are counting down and not happily that about six weeks from now, on July 29th, when Zucker makes her on-screen exit from Days of our Lives. After being fired for standing up to Corday Productions for on set sexual harassment and discrimination charges, the actress formally filed a lawsuit she has brought against her former employer which includes charges of wrongful termination.

Zucker said on her upcoming departure from DAYS, “I will not say how I leave the show. I do respect that we don’t want to share that. We want the fans to be excited and enticed.” However, Arianne confirmed that the character of Nicole is not ‘killed-off”.

So, what do you think of Arianne’s comments reflecting back on the Access Hollywood tapes media frenzy with Donald Trump, and her upcoming exit from DAYS? Weigh-in. But first, check out Ari on Rachel’s podcast below.
