Leave it to B&B head honcho, Brad Bell to snatch some more folks and characters from the canvas of The Bold and the Beautiful’s sister, soap The Young and the Restless. This time, Bell has enlisted Tonya Lee Williams to make a two episode guest appearance on B&B reprising her role of  Genoa City’s Olivia Barber Winters, on February 1st and 2nd.

Since Barber is Olivia’s middle name, and Williams will be acting with Aaron Spears, who plays Justin Barber, TV Guide got the low down. Williams stated, “No one really put it together. Apparently Brad Bell had this idea back when he named Aaron’s character — he just didn’t let any of us know about it. We’re just actors. Who knows what goes on behind the veil of Oz?” They gave me some very interesting, quirky scenes with a lot of the characters — the kind that made me wonder if maybe something might come of it down the line. So naturally I played the crap out of everything!”

Olivia comes into the fold when a major event happens in Justin’s life, which is said to be a B&B first!  So, what do you think it could be? Let us know!

People on message boards immediately thought Dru would be related to the black chars of B&B. So it’s kind of a duh moment for the actors. LOL! Also, B&B is abt fashion, and Dru is a fashion model, so storyline wise, Dru could mix it up w/ the chars better than Olivia can. Rowell is a fantastic actress and she’d be great sparring w/ Flannery. I doubt they’d ask Rowell to join B&B though. B&B is a million times worse than Y&R in terms of racial diversity in the cast and in the storylines. Also, it’s not as if Brad Bell knows how to write consistently for black chars. So Olivia, who is sooooooooooooooooooo boring, would be 1 more useless char on B&B. She’d fit right in on B&B since majority of the chars are useless. Maybe the “first for B&B” would be an entire ep centering around racial minority chars and even the people in the background would be racial minorities since it is in LA. But then again it is B&B. I’m guessing Barber marries Donna. Heck all kinds of incestuous relationships have been portrayed w/ the skanky, straight, white people of B&B. But I don’t think they ever had a black char marry a white char on B&B.

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
