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

Ella, you’re in for a long nap.

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!!

patty

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.

Beth

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?

Joan

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.

Nick Cannon Daytime Talker Set To Premiere On September 21

More talk shows are coming daytime viewers way come the fall with the announcement of the premiere date for The Masked Singer host, Nick Cannon’s daytime talk show, titled aptly, Nick Cannon.

The company behind the upcoming nationally syndicated series, Debmar-Mercury, says the new show will bow on September 21 and has been cleared in more than 90% of markets in the United States.

According to Deadline: “Cannon’s production company, Ncredible Entertainment, and Debmar-Mercury will co-produce the talker featuring his take on the latest in trending pop culture stories and celebrity interviews.”

Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus, co-presidents of Debmar-Mercury, said,  “Our great station partners are hungry for a rising, versatile and dynamic talent like Nick. His light-hearted style quickly wins over viewers and gives them a much-needed escape from the world.  We’ve been asked why we skipped doing test shows and explained there was no need. It’s obvious to anyone who watched Nick guest host for Wendy Williams last year how much he loves daytime talk and, based on the reaction of fans, how much they love him.”

Cannon added: “It’s been thrilling going through this process, and to see the widespread support that the show has received and the milestones we’ve achieved is mind blowing, We’re gearing up to deliver a must-see show and I’m looking forward to coming to you on your TV this fall.”

‘Edge of Night’ Mainstay Forrest Compton Dies Following Complications From COVID-19

Sad news to report this Monday.  The longtime star of CBS’ and then ABC’s The Edge of Night, Forrest Compton. has passed away due to complications from COVID-19. Forrest died on Sunday at the age of 94.

His death was reported and confirmed by Compton’s friends and an article in the Shelter Island Reporter.

As Edge of Night and longtime daytime fans know, Forrest played Monticello’s district attorney, Mike Karr.  He played this key role from 1971 until the show’s cancellation in 1984.  The show was originally titled “The Edge of Night” and eventually just became “Edge of Night”.   The soap which was steeped in murder mysteries ran on CBS from 1956–1975 and on ABC from 1975–1984,   In addition, Forrest along with his on-screen wife, Ann Flood (Nancy Karr) were one of the most popular duos in daytime.

Not only did Compton appear on EON, but he also had soap roles on As the World Turns, One Life to Live and All My Children.   In primetime, Forrest was best known for his role on Gomer Pyle: USMC opposite  Jim Nabors and Frank Sutton as Lieutenant Colonel Edward Gray.

In a heartwarming story where fan meets actor and helps him out (according to the Shelter Island Reporter) Compton was only slated to appear in two episodes a week for the next 13 weeks on The Edge of Night, when he needed an apartment in New York City near the studio, so when he heard about a one-bedroom on East 72nd he went to see Al, the super.  Forrest later learned that Al was such a devotee of  The Edge of Night that he locked his office door every day at 2 p.m. to watch uninterrupted. When Forrest mentioned that he had just been hired to play Mike Karr, the super said, “You’re getting that apartment.”’

Sharon Gabet who starred as Raven on Edge of Night, posted on Facebook, a tribute and remembrance of her former co-star: “Woody, as he was affectionately known to all of us on The Edge of Night, was a master professional, hilarious, smart, kind and gentle. I spoke with him a couple years ago on his birthday and he was active and happy in his retirement. Rest in peace, Woody, and give hugs and kisses to Larkin, Lois, Dennis, Nick, Joel, Irving and all the other EDGE alumni up there.  THE story about Woody. He was on EON when they were LIVE. It was brutal, but Woody was one of the best “straight face” men in the business. So he is doing a scene with Nancy his wife (the glorious Ann Flood – another “straight face” master). He walks in the kitchen and sits down and his line was supposed to be “Gee, it’s hard to get up in the morning.” as Nancy gave him his coffee. Instead, Mike Karr says on national TV, “Gee it’s hard to get IT up in the morning, Nancy.” There was pandemonium among the crew during the commercial break as you can imagine.”

Now below, watch the opening title sequence fro the The Edge of Night over the years, many of which feature Forrest as Mike Karr at the very opening or at the end as one of the series most well-known and beloved characters.

Robert Newman Shares Why There Has Not Been a Return to Springfield & ‘Guiding Light’ On-Screen Reunion

Robert Newman, best known to daytime soap fans as Josh Lewis on Guiding Light, sat down earlier this week for a wide-ranging interview on his career with Lauren Van Hemert via her You Tube Channel.

The timing of the posting of the interview as in-line with the date GL was officially canceled back on April 1, 2009.  The series began its historic run on TV from radio back on June 30, 1952, and ultimately aired its final episode on September 18, 2009.

From 1980 to 2009, Robert was one of the mainstays and key leading men of Springfield, and of course, the Josh and Reva (Kim Zimmer) love story is one of the most popular ever in the annals of daytime drama.

Right off at the top of the interview; Hemert noted that what she was asked most by fans of Newman’s and GL’s, when and if there will ever be a Guiding Light on-screen reunion.

Newman responded to the question: “I get that a lot.  That question is unfortunately in the hands of Procter and Gamble more than anything else … and they made it very clear over the years that they’re just not going to release the characters and copyrights to the show.”

Robert also added, “In terms of what you are talking about where there might be some sort of production, where there’s an actual reunion, and we see where Josh and Reva are today and that kind of thing (on their probably 15th marriage) … unless Procter and Gamble is somehow willing to shake loose the rights to the show, I don’t see it happening.”

Watch the full interview with the talented Mr. Newman below.

Then let us know, since P&G has made it very clear for the last several years they are out of the soap business completely, do you think its time they just sell the rights so viewers can see some sort of reboot down the line, especially for a show as beloved as Guiding Light? Comment below.
