Oh,yeah, my T….agreed!! Love MM. I have so many favorite moments, times, scenes…..but, as a little girl ( twelve, maybe?) with dreams in her heart; my favorite was that special moment when Nick said to Sharon: “Every time you walk into a room, my heart does somersaults. Every time you laugh, I get so much joy from that. And the way your eyes sparkle….. …..joy and sparkle. What else could a man ask for? You are so beautiful. No man will ever love any woman, the way I love you.”…. Yeah, I know….it has, sort of, gone awry…but, if truth… Read more »

Hi Celia, I LOVE Nick and Sharon together, they have been one of my favorite couples on the show and IMO they belong together…

I agree with you about Sharon and Nick. They will always end up together and belong together. No matter what obstacles stand in each others way, they will prevail. There are tons of books on relationship advice. Save your money! Here is the secret. If you want to be in a successful relationship you only have to do one thing or I should say be one thing, your spouses best friend. Thats it. Best friends will laugh together, cry together and always be truthful with each other.

Of course, my T…..although Sharon and Nick have parted ways sooo many times before, they remained best friends—-the friendship never died, and they always find their way back , unfailingly. I am glad they are on that road again. However, I hope they don’t end up like Nikki and Victor, where he sleeps with prison doctors on his death-bed, and Nikki with construction-work-babies. Ha!! My husband is my best friend, as I am his…..there’s nothing we don’t share. I was six when I first laid eyes on him and he ten…. he hardly paid attention to me, except to tease… Read more »

The Brook sisters were my favorites along with Nina Arvensan as Cassandra Rawlins, I wish they would of put clips of them in video, I also loved Lance and Lucas Prentiss..I just wish the show was the way it use to be with directing, production, writing and the beautiful classic background music, OH, DID I SAY THAT?

Celia
Guest
Celia

Oh, yes, Kevin C….All these other men/women come and go; but Sharon and Nick always gravitate towards each other. They love each other—the kind of love that never ceases to beat.
This is the couple that will always survive, Kevin……how many years has it been? Sharon and Nick have withstood the worst life could have possibly thrown at them ; yet, they’ve survived….come hell or high water.

Right on Celia…I loved it when there story started, from that mean Matt Clark played so well by both actors Eddie Cibrian and Rick Hearst.

Celia
Guest

Yes, Kevin….everything about Sharon’s life keeps me enthralled. I truly think that Sharon Case is underestimated.
She has taken a ‘beating’ and still running. …like the Energizer Bunny…LOL…. love Sharon to pieces!!

I agree with you Celia, Love Sharon Case and I think she is a fantastic actress.

It is amazing how the brass at CBS can remember the show’s rich history when it suits their purposes– but day to day story line often rewrites history and characters that should be on show are forgotten.

Very good point Mary SF and I agree with you…

You know what the show can give me for watching all these ears? an answer to what happened to Lisa Mansfield after she got away with locking Brad up in that cage for all that time so many years ago. I hated that she never got caught.

Do you mean Arturo, su? He is a stud, for sure….but a cad!
Hold on to your umbrella….a storm is brewing. A triangle is afoot. Arturo, Nikki and Abs…..will Nikki backdown?
Hmmm ….who to chose, a rich B “grand-maman”, or a rich B “demoiselle”?….. or both? Variety is the spice of life. I wouldn’t know, LOL.

Celia

PS.
Whom to choose, that is……sorry….
Did you notice Abby’s hungry eyes as she checked out Arturo’s backside, su?
This will be something else where the hostility will fester between the Newmans and the Abbotts.
Poor Abby’s fealty is stuck between a rock and a hardplace. What a quandary!!

Wished they dedicate one show to cover a decade– do it for a week and we see a capsule of the entire history in 5 days. A Herculean task for anyone.

Kevin C

I know, right, Ron? I’d love that. …..episodes before my time (especially) would be a great gift for me……salivating, here. LOL.

I would think someone at CBS could put an intern on the project, maybe even involve a former star from any given decade who stuck around long enough to know the stories… Lee Phillips Bell is still alive– and family members, I am sure, could offer suggestions. A celebration of 45 years shouldn’t just be a Walnut Grove Reunion with just a few guests. Hopefully someone will get going on this kind of project in time for the 50th!

We’re visiting Syracuse this weekend, so we’ll at least be in the same state, my friend.

Celia
Guest
Celia

You have brilliant ideas, Ron….I do believe that TPTB should start reading these comments—so many light-bulbs would go off.
Enjoy your trip…..my brother-in-law went to Syracuse University….love the city. It is close to Port Charles. You must visit. LOL.

Ron
Guest
Ron

IT was a perfect weekend– wonderful campus, great downtown (food!), and very friendly people. Should my son choose this school, we’ll check out Port Charles!

Celia
Guest

@Ron.
Big step for your son, Ron……Giant step for you and your wife; if he’s your first child going away to College, that is. Big adjustment for all family members. I know my mother had a hard time when my brother ( her firstborn) went to University. It got easier, Ron…..there are six of us.
….Glad you enjoyed the trip……next time I visit Toronto, I must make a point of making a detour to Port Charles, myself…..

Oh, my Lord!!!! JT, as a wife-beater , never crossed my mind. My heart is still beating a thousand miles per hour…..that’s how much the scene impacted me….quelle surprise!! I think Kay had suggested JT was doing drugs—-prescription or otherwise—-I agreed with her. Are his heart pills responsible for this? I asked my husband, but he said : absolutely not……so, what’s up? Is he mixing drugs? Is it a mental issue? Most abusers do struggle with either a neurological or psychological problem. Which will it be for JT? No wonder Mac filed for divorce with full custody….he’s violent. I must… Read more »

Hello sweet Cee, definitely saw this coming JT is a ticking time bomb …. His constant criticism of Victoria has been escalating weekly,.. His pressure points R being pushed beyond containment, Paul wanting immediate results, divorce proceedings, custody issues, most likely losing his overseas job, feeling beholden to Victoria for coming to his rescue ….Truth be told he had no job or home after Cain and he cut ties, so he’s feeling lots of resentment towards her …. NO EXCUSES EVER FOR A MAN USING HIS FISTS ON A WOMAN!!! This will not end well…JT is on Victor’s radar and… Read more »

Hi, my lady Fanny, So good to hear from you. Yes, JT is on the verge of exploding…….I think it’s more than all the pressures which have befallen him. You think Victor set up surveillance cameras at Victoria’s house? Wow!!!! If that’s the case, JT is fried turkey. Of course, you’re right….enough of the male dominance on women by using fists or mind-control. …..or sexual abuse, albeit, there are women who are very abusive. We don’t hear about it because men are too enbarrassed to come forward. Yes, my Fanny….we were hit for the fourth time in less than a… Read more »

Yes, Kevin, LOL. I was born in NY—The Lower Fork of Long Island—Suffolk County.
My Dutch Ancestors go back to the early days…..
I can’t wait for Spring planting, my friend–I like to get my hands in the dirt, LOL. We are all ready for warmer westher.
One good thing about Long Island, as Martha’s Vineyard, the snow in spring does not last…it melts pretty quickly, albeit the snow was neverending this past month.
Thank you for your kindness and lovely words. Much love.

Oh my word, CeeCee!!!! I was wondering if the “God of Thundersnow” had wreaked his havoc upon your home and hearth…now I know the answer! Just glad everyone is safe…Been busy setting up a new computer and attending to other “real life” stuff, but have been meaning to check in with you and say hello! Hope all else is well with you and yours and that we can soon again meet up in “Port Charles”…I haven’t watched GH for a few weeks now….it’s just been boring me to tears, so recently online recaps have had to suffice. Oh well….Later!

Hi, Shay…again, welcome… You’ve been a busy bee, eh? Let me tell ya….it has been a harrowing month. We built our house six years ago in the Flying Point Area… there are existing trees—some old trees spread around the property….too much water, too much snow….the tree uprooted. Scary! I think about the children…so, many of said trees will be felled for safety sake. The structure ouside over the patio could not sustain the snow either. We will not rebuild another…too perilous to even contemplate. You must watch GH, Shay….your favorite is acting the schoolgirl, again…not as the mature woman she… Read more »

You’re welcome, Kevin. I am the same way….I’m a people’s people, and thanks to Mr. Fairman, we get to meet many interesting personalities here, striking some friendships.
I am very curious by nature, just as you are…..
I can tell you one thing….I don’t have the typical New Yorker’s accent….LOL.
My favorite soap has always been and always will be Y&R…..then Another World, AMC and OLTL…..I enjoyed Passions for its off-the-wall, amusing storylines and characters….especially Timmy, RIP.

B&B’s Matthew Atkinson On Gaining Custody of Douglas: “Thomas Just Wants to Take His Rightful Place”

On The Bold and the Beautiful, Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) wants to be more of an active father to his son, Douglas (Django Ferri), who has been living with Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam (Scott Clifton).

When confronted with this news, Hope is not too happy, because she could lose being mother to the little boy, who she has come to love as her own.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstands now), Atkinson shared on the story: “Thomas just wants to take his rightful place. He’s not saying they are no longer a family. It’s just the opposite.  He’s not prying Douglas away from Hope.  He knows Douglas has bonded with Hope, Liam and Beth, and he believes they can all make it work.”

The question is, will Thomas resort to extreme measures as he has in the past to get what he wants, or will he work this out with Hope and Liam?

Check out the latest promo for this week’s action on B&B below.

Now let us know, do you want Thomas to have more of a relationship with his son, Douglas? Should the boy live between all three ‘parents’? Should Douglas fight for solo custody? Comment below.
