Thorsten Kaye Returns to The Bold and the Beautiful

Photo: Gilles Toucas/Bell-Phillip TV

What will happen when Ridge returns to town and The Bold and the Beautiful? Well, fans don’t have to wait much longer.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Thorsten Kaye (Ridge) will be seen in all-new episodes of the CBS soap beginning next week on March 15th.  The last time Kaye was on-screen was the December 26th episode of B&B.

Let’s recall that when Ridge left, both Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Taylor (Krista Allen), laid down the law to him that neither one of them was taking him back. Since that time, the once enemies have seemingly become besties. However, will Ridge’s return change all that, or will the gals stay true to their conviction to move on with their lives post-Ridge?

Complicating the situation even more will be the arrival of RJ (Joshua Hoffman), Ridge and Brooke’s son, who will be back on the canvas beginning in April. With RJ around the Forrester family dynamic, might that somehow bring Ridge and Brooke closer together, once again? Stay tuned.

So, are you looking forward to the return of Thorsten Kaye and Ridge back in action in story? Comment below.

I have not missed Ridge. The character has become insufferable.


Just let Taylor and Brooke find another man was getting boring thought Ridge was coming back with a new girlfriend you all keep changing the plot change the plot everyone is getting tried of the same people you have more than 2 or 3 let them get a chance at the show

For sure, don’t miss him at all. I sure don’t want to see his ex-wives as a couple , but I’m really not looking forward to his butting into their lives either nor the son all up in their business. Just got through with Thomas’s interference, don’t need another one.

I agree

I agree as well!

What they said!

Ridge is the. Heart of the show. It seems silly to see Brooke and Tayler be best buddies.

But he needs a new woman, not the old recycled ones. Bring in a new character for him.

He is the head of Forester so he needs to return..but…I’m sick of him just creating havoc and simply moving on to someone else.
He needs to be full of despair and regret for a while. He needs a turn in Bill’s shoes for a while. Suffering.

He is not a Forrester. Like Ashley on Y&R, he is the product of mother’s affair. I would like to see Ridge, Brooke, and Taylor all take turns leading to something lasting and settled. The dozens of marriages and annulments and and divorces only have made the characters foolish and stupid over the years.

I agree doesn’t anyone stay married anymore?

I like that recycled lol


I agree with Mary Anne that Ridge needs a new woman. I really do like that Taylor and Brooke are friends, however. I do not want to seed them hook up! Ridiculous!

Should bring in his real life wife, Susan Haskell . That would be nice to see and spice up the story line a bit!

They need to bring in new characters for the three of them.

I agree with Mary Anne..I thought the one that tricked him into marriage I think Shanon might be her name anyway maybe they need to get back together I think she would truly love Ridge..

U got that rite,but the show needs Ridge,he’s the drama the show needs

I agree love ridge

I am literally over Ridge thinking he’s all that….like the main prize….his arrogance is way over the top.
Let Brooke and Taylor move on with someone new.

he needs to be with brooke

Me either! He’s a glorified chauvinist. Please don’t let him mess up the best storyline ever making Taylor and Brooke besties. Everyone is sick to death of the triangle. We were over it 10 years ago.

Anybody else notice the hair styles on Hope, Brooke and Taylor? Very distracting to have those curls bobbing up on their faces. Maybe a new hair dresser would help!

I agree. They spend half the show pushing their hair off their face. Irritating

I can’t stand Hope’s”tentacles”! Those long wavy strands on either side of her face

Leave Ridge in the past

I do agree with the hair styles. Just how old are these 3 supposed to be?

Horrible! Get rid of Taylor trying to act like a silly teenager..disgusting with her sweater hanging off her shoulder .

She’s a different Taylor, way younger than original. Don’t like this Taylor. She doesn’t even dress like a mom of 30+ age adult kids.

Oh I really agree with this, Taylor is a grandma acting like a teenybopper with long hair and sexy looks. I do not care for this sickening friendship. I still think Ridge and Brooke should be together.

I couldn’t have said it no better!!!!!!!

Also distracting is Taylor sacheting around the room in her off the shoulder hanging garbs!

I agree Ridge has not been missed

Ridge … who?


Bring Thorne back!!!

Yes!!please do!

Yes! Thorne with a happy story line, for a change.

Yes,, Thorne

I think Ridge brings a lot of energy and I can’t wait to see whether things will get stirred up with Brook and Taylor. I have watched the show from its first airing!

Why!? He isn’t all that, I don’t see what them women see in him

Me either l agree

Me too, 1987
Since High School
Brooke is my favorite character

Me too, same about Brooke. I get tired of them talking about her sleeping with the Forrester men. Taylor is not an angel either, like Thomas n Stephie thinks. Taylor sleep with all the Forrester’s also ..I was so mad when they kept saying Taylor was an angel n Brooke was a bad girl. I kept telling at the TV…lol

I’m a Ridge watcher if for no other reason than he’s not hard to look at. If you want to see someone go bye-bye get rid of the man playing Deacon. He has zero, nada, zilch sex appeal. And, while you’re at it make Sheila go away.

Little interest in the show at this time.
Too much repetitive, boring dialogue as well as boring predictive plot lines.

That’s right. They stick on one storyline way too long. You need new writers. They stayed on Brooke drinking alcohol and bed sharing w/Deacon for a full SIX MONTHS. It happens all the time on B & B. Six months was the longest, I think.

Exactly! I can miss a week of shows, and when I turn it back on, they’re still saying the same things. Move on, for Pete’s sake!

Haven’t missed him at all!!!

I agree l have not miss Ridge or Rj

Yes I have missed him glad he is coming back

Right there with you Nancy.

I want Ridge and Brooke back together plz…

Nah, Brooke deserves someone who loves her and only her. Ridge can’t give her that, too many heartaches

I dont agree. I’m happy for him to return and I want him back with Brooke.

I completely agree. I am a die hard fan of #Bridge.

I also agree!!!! ( A fan since the 80’s )

Just wondering if he had work done!

I stopped watching. The Shiela storyline is ridiculous, and in my opinion,the Fay character was off the radar because her actress was more appealing than Steffy in so many ways, and she must have been getting too much fan attention – the star dynamic was tilting. I dip in here every once in a while, but with all of the above, it’s getting boring, as unrealistic as it is.PS: Why didn’t Dr.Finn ever, from the very start of Sheila’s reappearance, ever demand a DNA test to see if she was really his Mom?!? No thanks

All great points!

Whatever happened to Liam’s brother’s fiancée Flo and her Mom?

Hope Ridge has been off in Europe taking RJ under his wing and upon RJs return he takes Thomas’s place at HFTF to save his sister from Thomas’s behavior.
Maybe Ridge hasn’t forgiven his son for blowing up his life.


Totally agree… Have always hoped that Ridge and Brooke could be the ONE LASTING MARRIAGE. Sick of the back and forth.

Ridge blew up his OWN life!

I agree. I keep thinking either Ridge or RJ will help Hope.

It’s not that I love Ridge, but I getting tired of all the Brooke and Tyler girly stuff. Add on Steffy and Hope. Even Sheila. So welcome back I hope an improved Ridge.

B&B, PLEASE…I IMPLORE YOU to bring in some new men…PLEASE!

Yes we need Thorsten back!the story line is in need of a boost!

Yes I have missed Ridge dearly. It would be nice if he would finally makeup his mind for Taylor however. It is so boring with Ridge & Brooke. That ship has sailed. Brooke needs to find a new sexy hunk. Finally, Taylor and her stay friends.

Show definitely needs new life I use to watch everyday now maybe 1x a month if that so boring with same back in forth …..they need to get creative with this once great soap

Lana Thomas,
Maybe when BILL finally gets his brains back and dumps Sheila, he and Brooke will get back together.

Ohhhhh NO…That would be the end for me…

Sorry, bad idea!

I hope that when Ridge comes back he is better groomed. As a top notch designer, he never looks the part. He always looks scruffy..unshaven, hair looks greasy & unkempt. What’s that about? It’s not sexy at all. Can’t understand why those pretty ladies want him so badly with him looking like he just crawled out of a box under the bridge.

Agree, Ridge looks scruffy not handsome. Can’t see why 2 women would fight over him!!

Second that!

I agree. Ridge is at the age where he needs to be refined and well kept. He was looking like a surfer dude with the wind blown hair and facial hair. Still handsome but not like an owner of a Fashion house.


I agree, I love his look!

I agree. I like the rugged look. Sexy!

Maybe he’s trying to be just the opposite of the old Ridge who was always dressed to the nines, suave and debonair.

I agree! The rugged look and his accent…Hubba-hubba!

I agree! And I see no chemistry with him or any of his love intrest

I’ll be glad to see Thorsten
Back. Hope he and Brooke go back together, or I volunteer
To take her place..l

Yes! I like Ridge
And I think Ridge and Brooke need to commit for good now, no more interferences!

I like ridge with brooke

I agree. The two together make a beautiful couple. Taylor is all dorky looking and her clothes are always hanging off her like a little girl, not sexy looking at all. For a person of her caliber, she sure doesn’t act like it. I think Brooke and Ridge should become the example of a strong couple working through tough things in life together and be the shows rock! Enough of this wishy washy garbage. Make the families happy and work together.

Gee, you are the first one to put into words what I’ve been thinking since we got this new Taylor. She acts like a teenager.

Het blijft een beetje hetzelfde vind het beetje langdradig worden.
Ik ga stoppen met kijken sorry

If you say so!

I’m not really a big Ridge fan. He’s too vacillating.

Please hurry & bring Ridge back!!
Donot like gals becoming BESTIES
Sick of it. Put Bridge back together again!!

Yes I miss Ridge. I’d like him and Brooke to get back together and have Taylor move on.

Taylor is nauseating

I agree. I like her better without Ridge though. She and Brooke are too cutesy together. I was hoping they don’t make them a couple!


She sure is very annoying to say the least.


I agree completely. Can’t stomach Taylor. She dresses like an old floozy instead of a professional. Has no class at all with not knowing how to button a blouse. She can take hope with her. Anybody that would even contemplate risking their marriage and child for the almighty dollar deserves no respect.

Nope dont miss him at all

Nope don’t miss him at all

Yes he belongs with Brook


It’s about time I haven’t enjoyed watching the show since he’s been gone

Yes glad to see Ridge returning!!!!

Yay! Missed his character. Need him back ASAP

Yes, love to have Ridge back but with a new woman

God help us DON’T LET THE BESTIES GO BACK TO THAT ASSHOLE! He uses those two women like bookends. Back and forth, it’s old stupid and no longer a relevant storyline. If this changes back to the women fighting I’m done! It’s too stupid for words. Don’t turn them into enemies again! We’re done with that shit! No woman would put up with Ridge’s chauvinistic game of catch and throw away. No woman would play that game again unless she’s a backwoods doormat who can’t read or write.

You are absolutely right. I can’t stand him the way he treated Brooke he act like she is a resolving door and he is the only who can come in and go out. It’s a damn shame the way he did her. Who’s writing his script? Would they like to be treated in such a sham be manner. I think not.

I’d like for him to get back with Shauna.

Please, NEVER…

Guess you said it all and you are absolutely right!

The story line has not been the same since he’s been away. Boring and repetitious.

Southern lade 2,
Oh look, we have two new names for Brooke and Taylor.

Please have him shave, get a haircut so he doesn’t look so grungey,!

I didn’t miss him I like Brook and Taylor being besties

I am getting the biggest kicks out of the besties and the don’t have to be made into a couple because they are besties. Brooke finds the waiter hot. Now Taylor needs to find someone. To bad Ridge you treated them both wrong for way to many years.

Haven’t missed him at all. Needs a new storyline or a new job.

Storyline, added members to the cast this soap is so ridiculous and really it’s boring

Yes, can’t wait

Yes! I’ve missed him. But he needs a new love interest. And STOP yelling!

Have missed him he is a great actor not his fault the producers doesn’t give him good story lines I thought Taylor and Bill would be together then he is with Sheila and Ridge would be with Brooke

I agree completely that it isn’t Thorsten’s fault or that of any of the actors that the storylines and dialog are so repetitive, basic, simplistic, and sometimes boring or ridiculous. He’s a fabulous actor and deserves quality material.


Oh no let Bill be with the love of his life Brooke and Taylor with Ridge.

Yes, Ridge is finally back!!! Would love to see him reunite with Brooke. Fine they’re true and forever happiness once and for all!!!!! I would have loved to see Taylor hook up with the Dr that Bill had come do a house call to look over Lee when Bill found her on the dock. Let the cycle finally end with Ridge and Brooke being happy without interference from his kids. His kids are grown up, get over it!!!

The show has been more enjoyable without Ridge! I love that Taylor and Brook are besties and I hope to see them with someone new. Very tired of Brook and Ridge, she deserves someone less boring in her life!

I have not missed Ridge. The whole story
Line is beyond ridiculous.

Ridge is what brings a storyline. Rather see him and Brooke instead of Liam and Steffy again where it’s heading. It’s turned into a boring, boring show. Get rid of Hope she’s awful. As a designer of Hope for the Future you would think she would dress better and get those curls out of her face.

I love Ridge’s role almost like real life..Taylor’s should go, not much of an actress


The Sheila thing is really dumb.
I missed the original Ridge and Taylor but these 2 are growing on me.

Yes, it’s about time for Ridge to come back he’ll shake up things and maybe send Sheila back to prison as well

What i want to say is, am so sick of the writers making a mockery of psychiatrists, i hate Tayloy’s plot, Specialists do not behave the way she treating Shella and Bill’s treath. As a psychiatric, your daughter is not the one to tell you what is right for your family. No psychiatrist will let any man hold something over their head because it never stop, the blackmail will continue. You are already in prison of Bill Spencer. Do these writers see psychiatrists as a fool or what? She did not even aproach a lawyer to find out her options. The B&B WRITERS PLEASE stop presenting us as IDIOTS

Yes. I missed him. Also think he needs a new love in his life.

Ridge not so much…Thorsten, hell yeah!

I think Thorsten Kaye is the best actor on the show but I’d like to see him with someone else. Tired of him and Brook together and him and Taylor. It’s gotten old.

Yes, with a different story line

Ready for his return

No Ridge is to wishy washy. His mom did a number on him. Ridge be gone, stay gone!!! The girls can do better!!

No I am not looking forward to Ridge returning. Actually, I funny know why nobody has thought of this, but I believe that Brooke and Taylor have found each other to be very loving to each other. Why NOT EXPAND THAT and allow then to become intimate with each other. I believe they can have a very deep and loving relationship. It would be a great experience that we’ve not seen from the minor l major stars in this show. And I think it’s about time we open the door to other close friends becoming more to each other.

I don’t think it’s a secret that the writers want us to suspect Brooke and Taylor will get together as a couple. Seems like Taylor is looking all googoo-eyed at Brooke just like she did with Ridge. Gross.

It looks like it’s going that way with the long looks and hugs. God no. Let one show exist without that.

Agree, please don’t go there. Sickening thought

I Roberts,
Thank you!!!

What you are speaking of isn’t for everyone and sorry but I see enough of it on the other Soaps and it would end me as a viewer here.

B&B needs to reach out to Robert Newman (previously Josh from Guiding Light, and most recently Ashland from Y&R) for some much needed new blood. Newman is an absolutely irresistible actor whom would draw new eyes to the beleaguered storyline. Thorsten Kaye never was “Ridge,” he’s too unkempt and classless.

New blood needed!@

I agree Ridge needs to change is style and he just leads Brooke and Taylor on. They should both find a new man. However it’s about time Ridge and Brooke’s seemingly nonexistent son shows up again. It was weird they rarely talked about him or pretended to visit him. Taylor and Brooke need to become roommates, Brooke has that huge empty house. Maybe it will deter Ridge from trying to move back in. Also, Thomas is being accepted back too easily.

Hey, here’s what! While he was gone, he ran into Quinn and since Taylor and Brooke told him bye-bye, he and Quinn rekindle their affair. He comes back with Quinn. Wherever they’ve been they’ve started their own fashion house. His sister Felicia was the designer that was too edgy for Forrester. She and Thomas design the same, so it’ll be Felicia vs. Thomas, her nephew!!!!!

That’s a great plot! Hilarious

Glad Ridge us coming back. Maybe his return will knock the silly teenage giddiness out of Brooke and especially Taylor

I don’t miss Ridge at all. I wish the old Ridge would come back. He never was a good fit for the replacement of the original.

The old Ridge was too much of a pretty boy. I like the more macho Massimo Ridge. Both of them are much too wishy washy for me. I’d have told him to go find himself a long time ago. These women must not have a lot of respect for themselves.

Yes missed Ridge hopefully he will be back with his TRUE LOVE

I never did like that character Ridge. He sounds gruff and looks scruffy. Bill is so handsome. There is no comparison. Maybe get Brooke with Bill again. The Shiela story is soooo damned stupid. Bring in some new blood !!!!!! They must be all inbred by now.

I don’t agree Bill stands and walks like a Neanderthal and very self centered! Him and Sheila are ridiculous together! Not even believable! What exactly does Deacon & Sheila think is going to happen when they get caught?? That everything is magically going to be okay.!!Surrre it will.

Hi , Bambi. YOU …may think $Bill looks like a Neanderthal but did you know he and the original Taylor were once voted the best looking Man and Woman on television ? The show irks me . All the Forrester and Logan jargon. Laughable.. Ridge is supposedly NOT a Forrester at all. He Is the Son of Stefano and Massimo Marone .

Bambi Decker,
Guess we’ll see soon. I think Bill catches them, can’t wait!

If only everyone could get in the same page of answering questions I t takes a week to tell anyone anything!!! So nerve racking!!!


REPORT: Matthew Atkinson Back to The Bold and the Beautiful

When we last saw The Bold and the Beautiful’s Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson), he headed out of Los Angeles with his son, Douglas (Henry Joseph Samiri) and headed to Paris. The decision to leave was prompted by Hope (Annika Noelle) turning down his marriage proposal once again, and by prodding from his sister, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).

Many Thope fans have wanted to see Hope and Thomas reunite and figure out where to take their relationship next, but he has been nowhere insight, and so has his portrayer, Matthew Atkinson.

However, in a new report from Soap Hub, their sources indicate that Atkinson will be back on screen next month by mid-June. In a tease, Atkinson posted a photo on his Instagram story (which has since disappeared, since IG story posts only stay up for 24 hours), where he was pointing at a TV screen behind him that showed Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor) and Eric (John McCook) in a scene. No telling the true meaning of that snap, but it could be he is back at the show.

As Hope and Finn (Tanner Novlan) are getting closer, the timing could just work out in the most dramatic way if Thomas were to return. Since Hope and Finn are bonding over their parents, Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) and Deacon’s (Sean Kanan), upcoming nuptials, will the doctor and the designer hit the sheets and Thomas walks in on it?

Photo: JPI

Now let us know, when Thomas returns do you want to see him reconcile things with Hope, or do you want him back to the obsessed Thomas of the past who hatched plots to get what he wanted? Comment below.

General Hospital

General Hospital’s Maurice Benard Defends Sonny Going Postal, “It Could Definitely Happen”

Last Friday’s May 17th cliffhanger of General Hospital saw Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) beating up Dex (Evan Hofer) and threatening to shoot and kill both Dex and Jason (Steve Burton), who is restraining him outside the ballroom at the wedding reception of Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase (Josh Swickard).

For months, Sonny has been taking less than his prescribed dosage of medication to control his bipolar disorder.  The mobster has no idea that he has been duped by Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart), who is the one that set this dangerous situation in motion, in an effort to eliminate Sonny and eventually Jason from interfering in Pikeman taking over the territory.

One fan questioned the validity of Sonny’s reaction to Dex and Jason after the pei, when he took to X and expressed, “People off their medications don’t necessarily go around hitting people and being out of control. This was the WRONG message to send. I don’t expect anything from Frank Valentini and General Hospital anymore, but you could’ve (and should’ve) stopped it cold.”

Photo: ABC

Maurice Benard replied back to that comment and defended the actions of Sonny given the circumstances. The three-time Daytime Emmy-winner shared, “This is true but when you have a character like Sonny who’s volatile and is drinking and is manic and his thoughts are taken him over it could definitely happen like I said, ‘bipolar ain’t pretty.”‘

GH has portrayed Sonny’s battle with mental illness and the importance of keeping on your meds, plus the issues surrounding it for years. However, some fans have not been pleased by this latest plot point.


The pick-up of the story begins tomorrow on Monday, May 20th where teasers for the episode share: Sonny is horrified. Blaze consoles Kristina (who walked in on her dad threatening Jason and Dex) and Jason summons Carly.

So, what did you think of the plot point of Sonny threatening to kill Dex and Jason, after beating up Dex, given his growing paranoia? Comment below.
