Game show iconic host, Wink Martindale is the next special guest to don the priest collar on upcoming episodes of the CBS sudser, The Bold and the Beautiful.  Martindale follows Chaz Bono, and Perez Hilton as celebs-turned-men-of-the-cloth on the soap!

According to TV Insider, Wink will play Reverend Brown in four upcoming episodes of the series: October 26, 27, 28 and 31, where he is set to marry Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Bill (Don Diamont).

A B&B rep related that in story, Reverend Brown finds himself in an extremely awkward situation, along with the rest of the wedding guests, when the bride-to-be fails to make an appearance.  So, just where is Brooke? She’s upstairs with her ex Ridge (Thorsten Kaye)!  Of course, he is trying to stop the wedding by trying to convince the bride not to marry Dollar Bill! Does the ceremony actually happen?  Mum’s the word for now!

On his stint as a soap opera reverend, Martindale quipped,” I’ve told my friends and family that I’m now available for weddings, Bar Mitzvahs and funerals—and I’ll give a 10 percent discount!”

So, do you think Brill’s wedding will happen? What do you think of Wink being the next guest-star reverend on B&B? Comment below!

B&B does its share of fun casting, and I appreciate that. As to this plot turn… wow, a real twist. (Not so much.)

Jusy make Bill and Brooke the show power couple already. I feel no burn for a Ridge and Brooke reunion. Ever. Just is not the same. Seems show has evolved and changed so in last several years. Ridge seems less central and necessary to me.

Can I say that I do enjoy Thorsten Kaye a lot but to me Brooke and Ridge are KKL and Ronn Moss. I have tried to warm up to Thorsten but there isn’t any chemistry. Watching from the beginning its hard for me to let that go I guess.

I agree on your Ridge theory 110%. I too was watching on and off from day 1, and like you Ridge and Brooke are Ronn Moss and Katherine Kelly Lang. They had such wonderful connection. To me Thorsten Kaye was to scruffy to fit the Ridge mold

Lol wink martindale b&b is a hoot..who sat there and thought this one up?

I totally agree with you on the Ridge issue. Although I am not thrilled that Brooke slutted her way to her sister’s husband, right given the choice of putting her with either Bill or Ridge, I would rather see her with Bill. I never cared for Thorsten Kaye as Ridge. And although in my eyes Ronn Moss was never an academy award winning performer, I loved the chemistry and interaction he shared with Katherine Kelly Lang. At this point I think the story of Brooke and Ridge should be laid to rest.I always say move forward instead of back. And on a side note, I am sick of listening to Steffie bitch to anyone who will listen that she is worried about Quinn. She was using Quinn as an excuse to go running back to Liam . What she should really be doing is asking Liam why he didn’t throw her in jail when he had the chance if she was such a tthreat to society. If he did, maybe Grandfather wouldn’t be flat on his back in a hospital bed

I AM RIGHT THERE with you on KKL and Ronn. Actually storyline wise it would be nice if she married Bill got the shares and SHE keeps them and is the one who gets rid of Quinn herself. I think Eric would be blindsided if she told him she will vote him out if he doesn’t do right by their son for a change. I know a lot of people don’t care for Rick but it would serve BOTH Eric and Ridge right. Brooke could get ALL she wants in this potential scenario, Bill and Rick in power and RID Forrester of Quinn. JUST an idea mind you. Got to get this writing better.

That a wonderful scenario. This way Bill could have more than his 12% and take over Ridge’s share of the company while having Brooke at his side as his wife. Ridge will really go off the deep end then

Why doesn’t Kaye ever comb his hair or shave he looks like a bumb and he’s supposed to be such a great fashion guy yuk. He just looks dirty. Let Bill and Brooke get married B&B needs at least one power couple. They’re petefect for each other. Doesn’t anyone remember Ridge isn’t even a Forrester and he was seeing Katie and he married Caroline after steeling her away from Rick his stepson/stepbrother.

Quinn and Eric make a great couple. Its been way to long since Eric has had a live interest. I’ve always liked Steffys character but she needs to go to cry baby school already.

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir ‘Nothing General About It’ Goes Nationwide Today

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH.

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”

Popstar! TV Serves Up A Twist For Daytime Emmy Digital Drama Series Competition With ‘Evil Touch’ & ‘Death Squad’

This year the 47th annual Daytime Emmys competition features a crowded and mostly dramatic field of contenders in the burgeoning Outstanding Digital Drama Series category.  Over the years, this category has featured digital series that feature notable stars past or present from your favorite daytime dramas over the years from The Bay to After Forever.

Now comes two offerings and contenders from Associated Television International that are certainly not the usual suspects one would come to expect when voting for the different series in the running … for they have a significant horror-genre, superhero, or even one might say CW-type series bent to them. Both series have made it through into the Daytime Emmy blue ribbon round of voting.

Both Evil Touch and Death Squad are the series that are competing in the Outstanding Digital Drama Series and Outstanding Directing Team for a Digital Drama Series categories.  The shows both are seen exclusively on Popstar! TV – the only independent digital network producing original dramas.

But wait! When delving into the cast of Evil Touch we found some familiar faces to daytime!  Featured in it are: Daniel Covin (Ex-Hunter – Prospect Park’s All My Children reboot), Alicia Leigh Willis (Ex- Courtney, General Hospital, and Erik Fellows (Ex- Days and currently Damian in The Bay ).

Evil Touch is a horror -genre fish-out-of-water story with a demonic possession angle. It begins with a group of students from a small American college on a religious studies tour with their professor when they become stranded in the middle of nowhere. Seeking help in the village, they soon discover that there is something very strange and menacing about this place and its inhabitants. Before they know it, they find themselves captives and they learn that the villagers aren’t the only threat.

As for Death Squad that is in-line with some of the recent popular zombie series  ( i.e. Walking Dead) that have become so popular these days.  In it, members of a team of private contractors, all former soldiers who served together in Iraq are hired by a shadowy businessman to go into a former Soviet bio-weapons lab that has been re-purposed for advanced research and development. The team has few details when they enter the facility and begin searching for the lead scientist. Viewers quickly learn that something went very wrong in the lab, and as it turns out, it’s biggest threat is that most of the lab workers have been turned into the living dead.

Clearly, these two shows are vastly different from the love stories, familial dramas and relationship-driven types of fare that often compete in the digital drama categories at the Daytime Emmys.  Since they both have made into the blue-ribbon round; is it further proof that daytime and digital television is getting on-board with the horror genre, too?
