Sad news to report this morning. According to a report from TooFab, in court documents filed on Wednesday, La La Land  and film producer Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T., Y&R) has filed for divorce from his wife The Young and the Restless’ Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman).

The item states that Thad filed for the split in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday, citing “irreconcilable differences.”  The couple wed back in 2007 and have been together for ten years. The couple are parents to their children: Thaddeus, 10, and Georgia, 8.

Luckinbill is seeking joint custody of the children and is asking the court to “reserve for future determination the issue of spousal support,” according to the filing.

Thad exited Y&R back in 2010 and began producing hit films and working behind the scenes. As for Amelia, the popular actress has won two Daytime Emmys since taking over the role of Victoria on the CBS soap opera back in 2005.

Share your thoughts on the split of Amelia and Thad in the comment section below, and wish the family well during this difficult time.

        I agree with him tmi so not our business. Why do celebrities feel the need to broadcast their marital woes to a fan base. Tell the whole truth of these matter or leave that ish private. FOR REAL!!!

        It is always sad to hear news like this, damien; especially because we consider these characters/ actors (actresses) as part of our family.
        By the same token, what can be said? No one is privy to whatever goes on behind closed doors.
        The ones to suffer the most are the children. My love and support goes out to all of them. Best wishes.

        Yeah, comes off a little rude and heartless. When a marriage breaks up and there are kids involved, it is always difficult, even if it’s amicable.

    The good thing is that the children will still have both their parents in their lives even if not in the same home!!!…Unfortunately, divorce happens..but even more so in Hollywood

      Yes, and Reed is doing well while pursuing his music career.
      Wait….I am a tad mixed up.
      In any case, always liked these two as actors and I am sorry their marriage is over.

    Sad, especially since children are involved. Hope it isn’t a messy divorce, and wish them both nothing but the absolute best in their futures, wherever they may lead!

    It’s always sad when children are involved. I hope for the sake of the kids, they come to an amicable resolution. God bless.

    Very sad news this explains a lot the dramatic weight loss over the last few months with AH and they never seemed to be together at events anymore.

    • Celia

      March 2, 2017 at 6:35 pm

      Yeah, Kay…you are always on point. I had remarked how Kristen Storms had dropped weight, drastically, since her divorce.
      The same goes for Amelia….very noticeable. Hope all’s well.

      Thank you, Kay. There’s pain in life, my friend. We all go through it, in one form or another. And, how right you are. ….the support of one’s family means everything.
      Stay well.

    I am sorry to hear they are divorcing.
    Show business seems so difficult on
    Couples. Pray they will be calm for
    The sake of the children. Best of Luck
    & happiness to all concerned.

    I never warmed to this actress or her character but wish them both well. Have to get the divorce under the 10 year mark in California

      Yes, this speaks to Thad’s character. It looks like he filed for divorce – a few days before the 10-year mark. Since he filed, I don’t know, but it sounds like he is choosing money over his family – very sad.

        I think that’s a little bit slimy, like him. I don’t think he was a very good actor.

    wish they would seek therapy both individually and as a couple . you wil always experience lows in a marriage . sometimes issues need to be addressed in therapy and for both to work on these issues . Wish people would work on their marriages rather than just give up .

Mary Beth and Stephen then chat with Ron about what changes is he having to make to scripts in the reality we all live in now, the coronavirus pandemic, and how he is taking in to account upcoming safety protocols that will need to be adhered to when Days goes back into production.

As of now, from an article in Deadline last Friday the NBC daytime drama series is aiming for a September 1st restart.

B&B’s Denise Richards Reveals Her Husband Aaron Phypers Will Be Stand-In During Ridge Forrester Intimate Scenes

On Tuesday’s edition of CBS Daytime’s The Talk@Home, The Bold and the Beautiful and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Denise Richards (Shauna) appeared on the series.

During her segment, Denise discussed how she felt about B&B being the first American TV show back in production amidst the coronavirus pandemic and if she felt safe returning to work.  Richards also discussed how the love scenes and more intimate moments of the series will be done either with real-life partners standing in for their on-screen love interests, or a blow-up doll.

Denise expressed: “I’m excited to go back to work. I think it’s important for us to also be safe, but to move forward. And Brad Bell [executive producer and head writer, B&B) has implemented a very safe environment, I feel, for all of us, so I think it’s important.”

As to the COVID-19 testing protocols, Richards explained:  “Every week we’re tested. If there are more than two actors, we have mannequins. If there is an intimate scene, they’ve asked us if our significant other can step in for that person. Otherwise, we’ll be doing a love scene with a doll.”

It was then Denise confirmed that her husband, Aaron Phypers, will be stepping in for intimate scenes with love interest Ridge Forrester, played by Thorsten Kaye: “He (Phypers) is standing in. And he came with me today. He had to have his COVID test too, every week the whole cast does. He starts standing in next week.”

Watch what Denise shared on her return to B&B below.

Then let us know what you think of B&B’s love scene or intimate moment protocol in order to get new episodes in the can safely for everyone involved via the comment section.

Who Will Be B&B’s New Love Interest For Steffy Forrester?

The Bold and the Beautiful is back in production, the first soap to do so amidst the coronavirus pandemic, and there has been much speculation and talk for awhile now as to just what the future holds in story for one of its leading stars, Daytime Emmy-winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester).

It appears that instead of re-treading a romance for Steffy with Dollar Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) or his son, Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton), the series is about to bring in some new suitors into Steffy’s romantic life!

According to B&B’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, he has big plans for Jacqui in the months ahead, as he related to TV Insider.

When Bell was asked about the new love interest coming in to the show for Steffy,  he revealed: “We have a great story coming up for Jacqui. Steffy has been committed to her work, her daughter Kelly…but people have been wondering when a new man will enter her life. He’s coming. She’ll have a period of time where, in fact, quite a few men will be after her – as they should be. She’s spectacular and unique. I’m thrilled to say that this next chapter will be very much about Steffy. I always feel comfortable putting drama in the hands of Jacqui Wood.”

In addition, recently on  The Michael Fairman Channel’s recent Daytime-Emmy virtual chat with Wood, Scott Clifton and Heather Tom, the actress also alluded to a potential new love interest for Steffy, too.   You can watch that below.

So, who would you suggest to play opposite Jacqueline MacInnes Wood as her new love interest?  Share your casting thoughts via the comment section.
