Unless chose not to be, why was not Debbi Morgan on this list? Her role as Angie Hubbard was contract and genuinely lead actress on ALL MY CHILDREN. Same for Darnell Williams as Jessie Hubbard on AMC. This seems a true oversight.

While several of these nominated actors are worthy and talented, I am not sure I buy into their roles on the show as due these kudos. Now… if there were more meaty storylines for actors of color and diverse ethnic and national backgrounds… I could call some of these actors lead and supporting roles.

I totally agree with you. Most of the people selected have recurring roles and are rarely on. Darnell Williams, Debbi Morgan, Kristoff St. John and Kristolyn Lloyd are/were front and center and should have been nominated.

Why are we doing these awards? When was the last time you saw a storyline for an African American on Daytime ? Silly ! I predict they will all be gone the soaps in less then two years. Negative No Facts Yes!

B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang and Ashley Jones Reveal They Want Brooke & Bridget To Deal with Their Shared Past with Deacon

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) of The Bold and the Beautiful was last Friday’s guest on BOLD Live, and during her interview with B&B supervising producer and host, Casey Kasprzyk, none other than Ashley Jones (Bridget) made a surprise appearance.

Once Jones arrived on the livestream (late in the episode), the discussion turned to wishing that Brooke and Bridget would get the opportunity to deal with the fallout from years ago between mother and daughter.

If fans recall, Bridget was married to Deacon (Sean Kanan), and then he had an affair with Brooke, and then Brooke became pregnant with Hope.

On BOLD Live, Lang said, “There is so much good story there.”  She then added, “I honestly feel Brooke and Bridget never dealt with that. It’s honestly something that was pushed down.”

Ashley shared on the current state of B&B’s episodes: “This is the juiciest the shows been in a long time.”  And on Brooke/Deacon/Bridget, Ashley concurred with Kelly: “Oh. 100% … they never dealt with it.”

Watch BOLD Live with Katherine Kelly Lang and special guest Ashley Jones below.

Then let us know, would you like to see Bridget return and in-turn bring with her some meaty scenes between mother and daughter, especially given Brooke’s temptation with the bottle again? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
