Off to another locale, are they?  Yes, the international smash The Bold and the Beautiful continues its string of beautiful locale from around the world to incorporate into their stories!  This time the backdrop will be the canals of Amsterdam for a romantic story filming the first week of October, the series announced today.

According to series EP and head writer, Brad Bell: “While in the Netherlands for a Forrester Creations photo shoot, one couple finds love while another is falling apart.  The action takes place over seven episodes, and we are very excited about showcasing the beauty of Amsterdam during our shoot.”

Cast members Ashleigh Brewer (“Ivy Forrester”), Darin Brooks (“Wyatt Spencer”), Scott Clifton (“Liam Spencer”) and Kim Matula (“Hope Logan Spencer”) will take part.  Dutch actor and singer Ferry Doedens has also signed on to guest star as Forrester Creations’ local public relations executive, a role created especially for episodes filmed in Amsterdam. Episodes will air in the U.S. on the CBS Television Network in November 2014 and in the Netherlands in 2015.

Among the many other locations featured will be the exteriors of historic Hotel de L’Europe, a five-star luxury hotel overlooking the Amstel River in the heart of Amsterdam. Netherlands-based Stepping Stone Productions will assist the B&Bcrew during filming.

The CBS soap opera filmed episodes in Paris and Monte Carlo in June 2014, and in Abu Dhabi and Dubai in March 2014. Other shoots have included Lake Como (1997), Venice (1999), Portofino (2002), Sydney, Australia (2007), Aspen, Colorado (2011-12), Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (2011), Puglia, Italy (2012) and Monte Carlo (2013).

Of course, Wyatt and Hope are going to fall apart when Liam finally falls for Ivy. Hope wants Liam back and now Liam is going to waffle again between two women.

Somebody wake me up when this storyline ends, please.

Ella,

Girlfriend…get comfy (or whatever) because you’re in for a L-O-N-G nap…LOL!!!!! Anyway, I feel the same way. To me, it’s like blah blah blah blah and more blah. Lame.

Have a good one, Ella. XOXOXOXOXO

Exactly. What makes this storyline even more annoying and tedious is all the other characters who talk incessantly about Hope, Liam, and Wyatt during almost every episode, as if their lives revolve around those three characters. It might have been more interesting if Hope had married Liam in Paris. Then she could have gradually realized that she made a mistake, ultimately concluding that he isn’t the love of her life after all. But at the moment, B&B stands for Blah & Boring.

Obviously you weren’t watching or forgotten the same thing happened for months or maybe years all through the Hope/Steffy/ Liam triangle. It drove me to the brink of throwing a brick at the television if I heard more person share their thoughts on who was better for Liam, Hope or Steffy. Brad Bell is a big fan of recycling– I’m sure if we go back far enough we would hear the same conversations on who is better for Ridge– Brooke or Taylor. This is why I only watch this show in small doses, otherwise my television set would be in danger. LOL.

On this show does it matter? Couples come together, fall apart and come together again more times than a loose button on a shirt. But I will play along– Ivy and Liam will fall in love and Ridge and Katie will fall apart.

Thorsten and Heather aren’t involved with the remote.

Well I thought they might be since they will be in town for the live show when they are filming those scenes, but if you’re say they won’t be then it was a rather pointless question for Mr. Fairman to ask since there are only two couples to chose from–

I think it’s obvious. Hott falling apart and Livy finding love. Disappointed Lope Fan…

Why are Liam, Hope, Ivy and Wyatt going on location AGAIN?? They just went to Paris!!!! My god, does this really enhance the storyline?? Send Aly on location!!! Or Thorne, Taylor, Brooke and Ridge…..the adults need some fun!!!!! bring back CJ, Bridget, Amber and Oscar!! And Steffy!!!!

Barbie

Yes yes yes
I agree ! The adults need to come back to life on this show!
Where is steffie and Thomas , remember ridges children?????
It’s all to unreal to follow
Turning into a joke. Then they go away on a trip and writers think it brings back viewers ! Not

Mo

I don’t want Wyatt and Hope to fall apart. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

I do think the show centers too much on Hope’s love life. That ep where everyone at FC was discussing Hope’s love life was too much. Don’t they have their own lives???

That said, I do love Hope and hope she stays with Wyatt. She is better with him!!!

So sad what this show has become. Heather Tom who has three emmys has never done a location shoot in any of these fabulous overseas locales. This show use to have some balance those days are long gone.

That BB does these location shoots is great.

But the past TWO have been totally wasted by horrible repetitive story telling.

They need to stop being all “look”, and get back to some new stories long time fans can be interested in. And utilize the entire cast!

The location shoots are dumb.

A new story, what a novel concept, but I wouldn’t hold my breath because other than Stephanie dying, can you recall a story line in the last five years that wasn’t directly or indirectly connected to one of the many love triangles on the show? I can’t– I don’t think Brad Bell knows any other story— I miss the old days when we had a rival fashion house and all the infighting between them–but I fear those days are gone and we are stuck with love triangles until who knows when—

The best scene on this show in a long time was the scene where Ridge put his hand on Caroline to draw his sketch. Sorry but heat came off my tv screen ! No ick factor for me because for the first time since Thorsten Kaye came on as Ridge he actually has smoking hot chemistry with someone. Get the Barbie doll and dumb & dumber off my screen and let a real man show you how it works. Go Tk show these amateurs how it’s done!!

They have moved this Ridge / Caroline story so quickly, it’s just NOT believable !! It looks as though KKL decided to take a hiatus and the writers are scrambling to toss anything on paper.

patty

Well, we all know that it is going to be Katie and Ridge. B & B had to find a way to make us hate Ridge and they have. Ridge and Caroline make me want to vomit. She looks like a 15 year old with a dirty old man. Horrible move !!! Love Ivy and Liam, but can’t watch Ridge & Caroline. Removing B & B from my line-up.

deedee

I THINK HOPE AND WAYTT SHOULD STAY MERRY THEY MAKE A GOOD AS HUBBY AND WIFE. EVERTIME HOPE AND LIAM COME CLOSE SOMETHING OR SOMEONE COME IN AND TEAR THEM APART THAT BECUSE THEY DON’T BELONG TOGETHER, IT JUST NOT IN THE STARS FRO THEM, I RATHER SEE LIAM MAKE IVY HIS WIFE AND HAVE SOME KID BY HER . THEY ALL NEED TO KICK ROCK AND KEEP IT MOVING.

There are a few reasons not to like Caroline and Ridge, but IMO, there are so many more to like them. I see tremendous chemistry between Thorsten Kaye and Linsey Godfrey, much more than I’ve seen with him and Heather Tom or KKL. I also think the surprise of this storyline is what B&B needed more than another location shoot. B&B was lagging behind the other three shows by focusing nonstop on Hope and the men in her life, as well as Brooke and Bill breaking up and making up in an endless circle. This story has corporate intrigue, lust, fashion design and family rivalry. It’s what B&B needed. Love it or hate it, it’s gotten fans talking. I’d be shocked if Caroline and Ridge become a real couple, but that’s the beauty of this story. It can generate alot of controversy and hopefully ratings with little long-term effects, I’m guessing.

Plus it has the added bonus of finally giving Katie and Ridge some conflict that isn’t resolved by the end of an episode. Both characters were becoming wallpaper on this show, and neither Heather Tom nor Thorsten Kaye should ever be that.

Barbie

Stop with the boring Liam saga!
Why would he even go on this trip if it is a forester trip?
I’m so sick of this boring story line love triangle and a lot of my friends have stopped watching!!
Move on already!!!!!!
And where is steffie? She is on the opening credits still! Why? Does anyone know?

I like Wyatt and Hope together, just as I liked Liam and Steffy together. I don’t like the story line of Ridge and Caroline, please drop it. I would like to see Quinn put away for awhile, she is crazy.

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.”
