While loved ones, colleagues, fans, and more to continue to mourn the tragic loss of The Young and the Restless‘ Kristoff St, John (Neil Winters) who passed away at the age of 52, on Monday during a memorial service in his honor, a heartfelt video filled with remembrances, images, and videos of the beloved St. John was shown to those who attended to pay their respects to the Daytime Emmy Award-winning actor.

The memorial tribute video was put together and produced by Kristoff’s longtime friend, Mark Clebanoff who culled through hours of footage and photos to strike the right balance to honor our beloved friend.

From self-made selfie videos in his car, to beautiful images with his children, and his longtime cast mates, to the humorous side of Kristoff we all came to know and love, to Kristoff’s start in show business as a young child, and more,  the tribute video illustrates the wonderful traits of this one-of-a-kind soul.

This video tribute for Kristoff St John is beautiful. Thank you for sharing. I have been a fan of his for many years (He was six years older than me). Though he was a celebrity, he was a human being like the rest of us who experienced life’s ups and downs. Based on what co-workers past & present, some who have been friends of his for many years, have said publicly about Kristoff St John, he was a family man, a nice guy, a good guy with a positive outlook on life. This is huge for someone who has remained a good kid working as an actor in the entertainment business since childhood. His life was beautifully reflected in this video tribute and I believe it to be inspirational for young people and the rest of us.

Linsey Godfrey Addresses Caroline’s Death On B&B; While Matthew Atkinson Makes His Debut As Thomas

If you caught the end of last week’s episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful, you know it was a crushing moment for the Spencer and Forrester families, when news traveled that Caroline had died, thus bringing back to the canvas, Thomas Forrester and his young son with Caroline, Douglas.  This storypoint served as the impetus for the debut of Matthew Atkinson in the role of Thomas last played by Pierson Fodé.

In story, Bill (Don Diamont) learned from his sister, Karen that Caroline died of a blood clot, although no more specific details were given, or asked about in regard to her passing.  When Thomas arrived at the Forrester mansion with his young son in tow, friends and family where there for him in his time of need.

Meanwhile, current Days of our Lives star Linsey Godfrey (Sarah Horton), who played Caroline from 2012-2017 and appeared also in 2018 in the role, addressed Caroline’s death via her Instagram and social media accounts with this statement: “Hi Everyone, So I just got back from Caroline’s funeral..it was beautiful. It appears it’s time to say goodbye to our Caroline Spencer. I just want to first say a huge thank you to Brad Bell (executive producer/head writer) and the entire Bold and the Beautiful family. I truly adored every aspect of the wacky, feisty, sassy Caroline. I loved my time at Bold! Don’y be sad, even though she is gone, I promise Brad and the writers have some awesome drama up their sleeves for you! Thank you for all your support and love over the years! Don’t worry I hear Caroline has a brunette doppelgänger over in Salem, might be worth investigating.”

Check out a couple of clips below from B&B featuring Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope (Annika Noelle) learning the news of Caroline’s death and Matthew Atkinson’s debut as Thomas.

On the latest all-new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, daytime favorite, Kassie DePaiva (Eve) talks with host Michael Fairman all about Eve and what she is up to, hiding, and how she is scheming to ruin the life of Jennifer Horton, and keep Jack under her thumb.  In addition ,DePaiva shares what it has been like to be reunited with her former One Life to Live co-star, Robin Strasser since both have been taping at DAYS recently.

Later, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman behind the scenes where the guys visit the hair and make-up department and get the lowdown on how the actors are turned into the characters they play, and the fast and furious life of a soap star, who has to get camera ready before they hit the set.

Finally, Michael speaks with Victoria Konefal (Ciaria) on how she “Becomes Ciara Brady” as we visit her dressing room and find out just how she gets that Ciara-look that turns the head of Ben Weston every time she walks in to a room.

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin Are Among Dozens Charged In Alleged College Admissions Scandal For Their Kids

On Tuesday, two women very familiar to soap audiences, actresses Felicity Huffman (Ex-Lynette, Desperate Housewives) and Lori Loughlin (Ex-Jodie, Edge of Night) are among dozens of wealthy parents, elite college coaches and college prep executives accused of carrying out a nationwide fraud to get students into prestigious colleges, according to a massive federal indictment that has been handed down.

According to prosecutors, the scheme was in two parts: either parents allegedly paid a college prep organization to take the test on behalf of students or to correct their answers.  Then, the organization allegedly bribed college coaches to help admit the students into college as recruited athletes, regardless of their actual abilities.  The documents also allege that some defendants created fake athletic profiles for students to make them appear to be successful athletes.

CNN is reporting: “As of now, 50 people were charged in the criminal investigation that went by the name ‘Operation Varsity Blues.”‘ Those arrested include two SAT/ACT administrators, one exam proctor, nine coaches at elite schools, one college administrator and 33 parents, according to Andrew Lelling, the US attorney for Massachusetts.

The parents were alleged to be from a “catalog of wealth and privilege,” including actors, CEOs, a fashion designer and the co-chairman of a global law firm.  “This case is about the widening corruption of elite college admissions through the steady application of wealth combined with fraud. There can be no separate college admission system for the wealthy,” stated Lelling.

As to Huffman and Loughlin’s parts in the scandal: Felicity has been charged with felony conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.  She was arrested without incident at her home.   Huffman is accused of paying $15,000 to William Rick Singer’s fake charity the Key Worldwide Foundation to facilitate cheating for her daughter on the SATs, the complaint says.   Another cooperating witness told authorities he purportedly traveled from Tampa to a West Hollywood Test Center to administer Huffman’s daughter’s exam.  She received a 1420 on her test, which was 400 points higher than a PSAT taken a year earlier without the same administrator, the complaint states.

Loughlin, best known to TV audiences as Becky on Full House, and now its reboot, Fuller House. is facing the same felony charge: conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.  Her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, was also charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

According to documents, the duo allegedly agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team, even though they did not participate in crew, the complaint said.   The complaint includes emails between Singer and Giannulli in which the two discussed a “game plan” for his older daughter, whose academic qualifications were at or below the “low-end” of USC’s admission standards.  Singer facilitated bribes to Donna Heinel, the senior associate athletic director at USC, who then got the students in to USC as recruited athletes, according to the complaint.

Giannulli was arrested without incident, and the FBI served a warrant for Loughlin, but she was not home at the time. She is on a flight to Los Angeles where she is expected to surrender at the Central District Court later this afternoon.

So, what do you think about this shocker involving Huffman and Loughlin, and the corruption via the those of privilege, wealth, and status? Share your thoughts on this developing story via the comment section below.
