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.”

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.

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.

Thats going to be a very long nap…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!!!!

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

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!

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 location shoots are dumb.

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.

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.

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.

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.

‘Santa Barbara’ Episodes May See Light of Day Yet; Will the Beloved Soap Opera Come to Streaming?

For decades, soap opera fans around the world have wanted a chance to see Santa Barbara episodes again. The soap, which first aired on NBC back on July 30, 1984 aired for only 9 seasons until the network pulled the plug after diminishing ratings and multiple changes in writing and producing regimes. The show last aired on January 15th, 1993.

Santa Barbara was co-created and initially produced and co-written by the legendary team of Bridget and Jerome Dobson. At the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmys, Jerome was honored with the Gold Circle medal for his over 50 years of work and accomplishments within the medium. Sadly his wife, Bridget passed away earlier this year in January at the age of 85.

The show featured an all-star soap cast throughout its run which included, at times: Marcy Walker, A Martinez, Dame Judith Anderson, Robin Wright, Justin Deas, Eileen Davidson, Lane Davies, Nancy Lee Grahn, Kim Zimmer, Jack Wagner, Jed Allan, Louise Sorel. Judith McConnell, Roscoe Born, Sydney Penny, Todd McKee, Terry Lester, Justin Gocke, Nicolas Coster and many more.

During a livestream conversation on Friday, June 21st, Jerome Dobson and A Martinez visited the Michael Fairman Channel to reminisce about the success and ups and downs of Santa Barbara and much more.

Many people in the live chat and many around the world (Santa Barbara was very popular internationally) have wanted to know with the legal issues it appears had plagued the show for years, if there would be a chance that fans could ever see Santa Barbara episodes again, and if they could become available or streamed?

Dobson shared exclusively, “Well, there’s some legal footwork being done right now about that kind of possibility. There’s been so much demand to see Santa Barbara, and so it’s not totally out of the question.” Martinez (ex-Cruz Castillo) reaction to that possibility was that of “Wow!” That was also the same reaction by several viewers watching the live conversation in the chat, because that would be a soap dream come true for many.

So, do you hope that the legalities can finally be worked out and you could relive the seasons of ‘Santa Barbara’ all over again? Let us know in the comment section below. You can check out the live chat with A and Jerome below, the moment happens around the 56:18 mark.

Ryan Paevey Makes Statement on Why He is Stepping Back from Acting While Being ‘Grateful to General Hospital for Giving a Green Actor a Chance’ and ‘Hallmark for Changing My Life’

GH and Hallmark fan favorite, Ryan Paevey (ex-Nathan West) wanted to clear the air after numerous reports and rumors had him quitting acting altogether and what that meant for any future projects in Hollywood he may have had planned.

Paevey released an exclusive statement to Heavy.com where he shared what is going on in his life. Back on June 19th, Ryan deactivated his Twitter and Facebook accounts and he may have deactivated his Instagram account on Friday as well, or as of this writing.

For Ryan, the decision to change his current life’s trajectory came after a series of events; chief among them moving closer to home to take care of his ailing mother who is battling lung cancer and social media scammers.

Here is what Ryan shared: “Hey everyone…so first and foremost, I am a bit apprehensive that I even have to make a statement like this. I am certainly accustomed to a certain degree of gossip, but the past few weeks in particular have gotten out of control with speculation from third parties that have taken my words and expanded upon them to meet their narrative, or flat out misrepresented my words or misconstrued their meaning. I have always been an open book, and one who speaks his mind truthfully and directly, and it is unfortunate that we live in a world where social media makes it very easy to twist one’s words; I am often unaware it is even happening until someone from my team messages me in a panic, and so I feel it best to make a formal statement through HEAVY.”
