Joke! Can’t wait until everybody realizes Bruce Jenner has been taking you for a five million dollar ride! We have ou soldiers in harms way protecting this country for people to make a mockery of our freedoms!

B&B is just a straight up amazing soap opera yes it has its moments when its been frustrating just like any other soap but its always returned to its place of being amazing

Congrats!!! I can see why. I have noticed the B & B groups on FB don’t have the complaints that Y & R is receiving right now All it is getting is complaints on s/l going too long, the writers dumbing down the audience and their beloved characters.

maybe there are plans to let B &B become and hour show and end Y & R– ???
