Nicole Avant (Reign Edwards) recently showed up in town and moved right into the Forrester Mansion with Rick (Jacob Young) and her sister Maya (Karla Mosley).

Now, Maya is doing everything she can do to clearly get the girl out of the house and away from her and Rick … but why? Looks like we may get some answers, or begin to, next week on upcoming episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful! In this new CBS Daytime promo, it teases that Nicole holds a secret, and it clearly is something she is about to hold over Maya’s head.

So, why do you think Nicole came to LA?  Does she want to become part of the high fashion world and move and shake with people who have plenty of dollars?  Is Maya and Nicole’s relationship not what it may seem?

Watch the promo after the jump, and then share your thoughts! What do you think is the secret that Nicole has about Maya?

I had no idea, then it just popped into my head – what if lil’ sis isn’t lil’ sis but daughter? Looked up the age of the actress who plays Maya; she’s 33. It’s a slight stretch, but it could be, especially if she’s playing just a little older. And how old is lil’ sis supposed to be? 18? That would mean Maya was 15 when “sis” was born; happens every day.

I agree!

I agree and Maya should just tell Rick the truth. he already knows Maya was in Jail and lost a baby anyway. So what if she made mistakes . I would hate t see her fall. She won Rick, Caroline stole him back and she won him back while making something out of a tuff time. There are no other women of color in the show in a high power position what’s wrong with it being Maya. Again Rick is the one picking on his staff Maya did not ask for that foot rub.

I racked my brain all night thinking what secret could Maya have that would shock Rick? Rick Forrester whose family has seen/done it all. What could shock him & for some reason I thought like at 3 a.m., Maya is a guy! Or was. My mother called me today after the show screaming (I was at work & had not seen the show yet) She said you won’t believe the secret-have never seen it on a soap before-I said DO NOT TELL ME, then I said Maya is a guy but she hung up, ha. I saw it later tonight & had a fit, screaming, I mean, Myron, my brother! OMG. This is over the top!

Wow!!! I am loving Nicole on the show. She is mouthy and puts Maya in her place. I bet she is Maya’s
daughter and not her little sister. I hope she stays on the show and compete with her mother for the lead model position

Nikki
Nikki

Oh I would love it. I think Maya is beautiful but I am so sick of her & her attitude. She & Rick make it sound like Caroline & Ridge are to blame but really it was two kisses what about her constantly putting Caroline down to Rick & planning her little escapade in the steam-room with Rick?

The Substitute

No one cares who she is more then likely Maya’s daughter! Another waste of money we could have good solid actors back on this show with history and we get stuck with this!

I think this is the twist the Rick/Maya in the Manor story needs.

penny

I do too! IMO it’s much more interesting than a boozy Brooke, a useless Gwen/Deacon, a washed up Ridge and silly Caroline and most definitely the annoying Ivy who needs to go back to wherever she came from.

Nikki
Nikki

I agree.This girl is just what the show needed & it’s perfect the way it is. She is perfect for the role as well and plays it great.

I think Nicole might be Mya sister she may have had as a very early teen, I know Mya had a kid she lost while in jail but she could have had her first child at 13, 14, 15 but was raise as her sister instead of her daughter just a thought.

Robert
Robert

I think baby sis, is really Maya’s daughter! My theory is Maya had her when she was maybe 14 or 15 and the family pretend that Maya’s mother gave birth to her. That would explain why there seems to be so much tension between Maya and her parents and it sounds like they had issues long before Maya went to prison.

Hope B
Hope B

Could it be they have the same daddy? Father/stepfather molested Maya, gets pregnant with Nicole?

Elaine
Elaine

My guess the boyfriend that sent her to jail was pimping her out as a prostitute before she did time.

Nikki
Nikki

Or maybe married & divorced before?

Phae
Phae

I agree. I thought that maybe the ex boyfriend had her prostituting. Or maybe had her doing nude modeling which is why Nicole is so impressed with Maya’s fashion modeling career.

Sharon
Sharon

I thought that Maya had a baby lkng ago and gave it up. Does Rick know this

Hope B
Hope B

She did have a little girl was put in foster home, Maya thought she would get her back when she was found innocent and got out of jail. A couple had just adopted her and was in a car accident , the little girl died.

Tracey Sturdivant
Tracey Sturdivant

That sounds right, and she told rick that so does the girl think Maya didn’t tell rick that

Mary SF

Well my top three choices would be she was either a hooker, in a porn movie, or married to some low life she never divorced—-or maybe all three– LOL.

I don’t think she knows Maya’s secret. I think it’s a bluff, and I hope Maya doesn’t fall for it.

dansky

Could Maya possibly be Nicole’s mother? Maya could have become pregnant with her as a young teen, and had her parents raise the baby. Most likely, Nicole just found out this news and is hellbent to make Maya pay.

Mya is really MYRON………….lol.

Well since all of B&B women always end up victims, needy, or weak, I’m guessing prostitution.

I thought it would be contemporary and cool if it turned out that Maya was actually born male and went through gender reassignment surgery years ago–and there was no baby. Rick has fallen in love with a transgendered woman–and it won’t matter. What WILL matter is that Forrester’s lead model was born a man and is involved with the CEO. A chance to EDUCATE the characters AND viewers about what it means to be transgendered and to be involved with someone trans. The “sister-as-secret-daughter” or “Maya used to be a hooker” things, while understandable to guess as soap viewers, are kinda tired and trite for the 21st century. Let’s think about the world TODAY…!

Aden
Aden

No offense…if you want education…turn to PBS. Soaps have never been a reliable form of “education” but at least some of them used to try, often with ground breaking and award winning results. Think of GH the Claire Labine era. But Bold and the Beautiful, of all the soaps, is just campy fluff and on its brief sojourns into anything socially relevant, it is most often presented as a special episode, plays like an after school special, and then Brooke goes back to sleeping with everyone. Thats the formula that has apparently worked for this show for 28 years. Tossing in a transgender just for the sake of it would reek of stunting…and would be filled with stilted wooden dialogue…fairy tale and rainbows aceptance by everyone…and a lot of bad acting. No thanks!

Abigail
Abigail

I agree although I’m not opposed to a Transgender in the soaps , its long overdue. I would prefer to have it known from the Start so the person would have there own ID and style. If Maya is destroyed this way then so is a Transgender person due to haters. Let there be a Ru Paul/ Transgender like person on the show and more women of color as it could be good for F.C under Rick and Maya’s term in office and good period

joe drones

That would be a mind blowing.

Kerry

I was thinking the same. Maya a man.

Debra

That’s exactly what I’m thinking! None of the other reasons are that threatening to her relationship/status.

Tracey Sturdivant

I hope that’s not the case the stories are already weak and boring we really don’t need that shoved down our throats like they tried to do on the guiding light or as the world turns. TV really has gone too far

Well unfortunately they decided to take to low road and go with the Mya is a Man story line.

Not really feeling this storyline yet. Would love to see Aly or any other member of Maya’s Fan Club find out the secret and use it before Nicole has a chance to, LOL! Just hope this secret and the storyline is somewhat fresh and original instead of the same old/same old.

mmc

I can’t stand her….so many people have been saying she’s Maya’s daughter….a little stretch age wise but nothing soaps haven’t done before…..& maybe it was the circumstances that she was conceived that made Maya leave….

Yes, I'm That Leah
Yes, I'm That Leah

Yeah, Nicole is Maya’s child.

DIDNT NEED ANOTHER NEW ACTOR ON THE SHOW…ENOUGH OF MIA AND RICK…LETS GET SOME OF THE REAL ACTORS BACK AND SOME FRESH STORYLINES,

There ain’t nothing fresh about Brooke. LOL.

I like Nicole – she’s cool!
Loved the dance she did to that song my Sherlock Tones. You go girl!

I doubt Rick would care that Maya had a kid when she was younger unless the circumstances/father were sketchy.

Glad to see there is someone who can bring Maya to heel.

Rob
Rob

yeah, because this story isn’t ludicrous enough already. Even by B&B standards.

pat

Who cares….she needs to change her tone with maya…or maya should put her ungrateful behind out…

Abigail
Abigail

I agree with you. I would also just tell Rick and take my chances before Nicole does. If Mays goes down so should Nicole. I thought Maya was a bad girl Nicole is rotten.

joe drones
joe drones

I think that is Maya daughter.

olaiya

I was a fan of Mya and Rick re-connecting ever since Caroline broke them up but now I’m soooo tired of them. I do like them together but can’t the writers send them on a vacation?

Abigail
Abigail

I agree with you and unless I missed something Maya is just happy to be happy it’s rick who continues to be nasty to others.

wolfy
wolfy

If Nicole is Maya’s daughter, then she’s aged awfully fast, as Maya stated she lost her daughter in an accident a couple years before she met Rick. I don’t think she’s her daughter; I think she is her sister, but there’s something that Maya is hiding. My first thought was that Maya was born a male and is transgendered. Wouldn’t that be a kick to actually have on air in a soap!

jaybird369
jaybird369

Storyline-wise and all, I’m kinda thrilled by this. I mean…for once, this seems to be a storyline that DOES N-O-T involve that needy and man-hungry Brooke…L-O-L!!!!! I’m just saying……….

Rob
Rob

Im Maya has done some porn in her past….

Marissa Huffman
Marissa Huffman

I think Nicole is maya daughter. Maya looks like a mother to Nicole.

BC
BC

I think that she is Mia’s daughter. I think she lied to Rick about her daughter dying and instead left the child with her parents to raise and they raised her. Can’t wait to find out.

Heidi
Heidi

I thought the same ever since Nicole showed up on the show I felt she was Mayas daughter. Also feel there was family abuse going on and Maya went to prison for murder and not what she told Rick.

speedy
speedy

My first thought was that Maya was born male. I don’t think Maya having a baby at a young age would make Rick not forgive her. It has to be something bigger than that. I think the story she told about losing her baby was a rouse to help cover up her true identity.

Meghan
Meghan

That was my thought too. She’s transsexual. Bring awareness to the issue.

SZima
SZima

I don’t think Nicole is Maya’s daughter.
Maya is supposed to be mid-late 20’s. She came on the show having given up a baby who was killed in an accident.
Nicole is in college, so that would put her at 19-20 at least.
No matter how you stretch it, the mother/daughter thing doesn’t work.

That being said, and knowing how ridiculous the soaps can be and how far they try to push the envelope, they will probably try to sell that load of crap and expect us to buy it. Ain’t happening for me!

Heidi
Heidi

Todays episode said Nicole wasn’t an UCLA student she was taking extension Scorsese but dropped out, she came to Maya for an answer and I feel she wants to know how her mother could leave her in a cruel family instead of taking her with to raise her ina better environment so now she’s going to make her mother/Maya pay for the wrong choice she made.there are girls as young as 12 years old getting pant. I think Maya murdered her rapest, went to prison and fled when she got out leaving her daughter/Nicole behide.

Marissa Huffman
Marissa Huffman

I am watching this show right now I am at the part where Nicole sad she wanted to be a model what happens next

Tracey Sturdivant
Tracey Sturdivant

I like the program and why doesn’t Rick know that Caroline set up Maya in those steamy acting scenes

Heidi
Heidi

I agree with many of you. I can’t stand Nicole. Other than this so called secret, she doesn’t bring anything to the show. She can’t act. As far as Brooke, i am so sick of the Drama Queen. She can’t be alone! Give me a break. She’s been with every man on the show and has kids and sisters that love her. That’s more than most people. Enough of poor Brooke! And I am so sick of Rick and Maya kissing and making out every minute. What time does he have to be CEO? What time do they have to run the company when they are either in bed or she’s on his lap. Can’t the writers make them at least seem professional? I do hope Caroline and Ridge stay together. They make a great couple and they do work once in a while. I can go on and on about everyone but getting back to this big secret. I just have a feeling that this secret isn’t that big a deal but it’s keeping everyone watching the show. I just hope the writers make this secret worth all the hipe it’s getting and they don’ let us down.

Jo
Jo

If you recall Mya was with Rick first. Caroline stepped in. Her past is her past. It’s a reason why Mya parents raised Nicole as their daughter. But at this point Mya should tell Rick. His family same way look at Brooke and her daughter

Dawn
Dawn

Hi everyone, I think that Nicole is Maya’s daughter. Maya’s parents raised her as a sibling.

crystal weiss

Yes, I also believe that Maya is Nicole’s mom, but the transgender storyline is a better and new age one. I’m 55 and when Erica Kane on all my children had an abortion, I learned a lot then, too.

I think going transgender is going to far. What’s wrong with making rick and Maya a power couple. Educate the world on accepting modern biracial couple first and then you can work on transgender relationships.

Tracey Sturdivant

I agree

Abigail

I agree with you see my comments above . There is plenty of room for a Transgender story without destroying Maya and Rick also making it worse for transgender people. Let them be a power couple because its rare to see on TV . Glad to see more real life issues that people can relate too instead of watching wealthy people screw up while the rest of us wish we had it so good.

Nikki

Biracial is very common now a days this is not. Just look at the numbers they expect to tune into Jenner’s surgery!

Really, really writers! You could have at least picked someone who looked a little less like a shapely woman! I’ve seen transgenders and they do not look like maya. My sister and I watch the show and after that came out we both laughed our you know what off. I called her and we laughed for the first minute of our conversation! This is ridiculous!!!

Lola

Mia was a man!

OMG I just finished watching it today and there is no way in Heaven or hell I would have guessed this. I just laughed & laughed YUCK so Rick’s been making out with a male turned female and so did Carter.

Apparently Maya is Myron, her brother -not sister. Obviously she had a sex change! Can’t wait to see Rick’s reaction to that-what a story line! What next! Sure exciting lately!

I guess the secrets out….

It was revealed that Maya was born a man, but how do they then explain she had a baby? Can transgender male to female have children? I do not think so.

I hope lil sis got her facts wrong and Maya is not her brother. Maybe Maya left home due to rape or incest.

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir ‘Nothing General About It’ Goes Nationwide Today

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

Photo: HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”

Popstar! TV Serves Up A Twist For Daytime Emmy Digital Drama Series Competition With ‘Evil Touch’ & ‘Death Squad’

This year the 47th annual Daytime Emmys competition features a crowded and mostly dramatic field of contenders in the burgeoning Outstanding Digital Drama Series category.  Over the years, this category has featured digital series that feature notable stars past or present from your favorite daytime dramas over the years from The Bay to After Forever.

Now comes two offerings and contenders from Associated Television International that are certainly not the usual suspects one would come to expect when voting for the different series in the running … for they have a significant horror-genre, superhero, or even one might say CW-type series bent to them. Both series have made it through into the Daytime Emmy blue ribbon round of voting.

Photo: ATI

 

Both Evil Touch and Death Squad are the series that are competing in the Outstanding Digital Drama Series and Outstanding Directing Team for a Digital Drama Series categories.  The shows both are seen exclusively on Popstar! TV – the only independent digital network producing original dramas.

But wait! When delving into the cast of Evil Touch we found some familiar faces to daytime!  Featured in it are: Daniel Covin (Ex-Hunter – Prospect Park’s All My Children reboot), Alicia Leigh Willis (Ex- Courtney, General Hospital, and Erik Fellows (Ex- Days and currently Damian in The Bay ).

Evil Touch is a horror -genre fish-out-of-water story with a demonic possession angle. It begins with a group of students from a small American college on a religious studies tour with their professor when they become stranded in the middle of nowhere. Seeking help in the village, they soon discover that there is something very strange and menacing about this place and its inhabitants. Before they know it, they find themselves captives and they learn that the villagers aren’t the only threat.

Photo: ATI

As for Death Squad that is in-line with some of the recent popular zombie series  ( i.e. Walking Dead) that have become so popular these days.  In it, members of a team of private contractors, all former soldiers who served together in Iraq are hired by a shadowy businessman to go into a former Soviet bio-weapons lab that has been re-purposed for advanced research and development. The team has few details when they enter the facility and begin searching for the lead scientist. Viewers quickly learn that something went very wrong in the lab, and as it turns out, it’s biggest threat is that most of the lab workers have been turned into the living dead.

Photo: ATI

Clearly, these two shows are vastly different from the love stories, familial dramas and relationship-driven types of fare that often compete in the digital drama categories at the Daytime Emmys.  Since they both have made into the blue-ribbon round; is it further proof that daytime and digital television is getting on-board with the horror genre, too?
