Billy Miller who was last in the news with whether or not he is staying put at the number one soap opera, The Young and the Restless, has made some headlines again! But this time for an accident on the set of Y&R during a scene, in which the Daytime Emmy Award winning actor broke his hand!

Soaps In Depth reported from Miller, “There was a big scene — and I got really into it, and broke my hand. It was a good scene. It wasn’t smart, but for the [scene] it’s as close to truth as you can possibly get, and I guess that’s what you strive for. I wouldn’t recommend it, though. I shattered my knuckle and broke my hand.” Miller proved to be a trooper, though, noting, “I finished out my day, shot another couple of hours, and then went to the hospital. I had it reset. Fun times!” Because the injury actually works for the storyline, Miller says that the writers promptly wrote it into the show.”

So the question is: What big heated moment occurred for Billy Abbott that caused Miller’s injury? Any guesses? Stay tuned.

    I love Billy Miller. I think he one of the best actors in soaps. When he acts it seems very effortless and natural.When the adoption story comes to fruition, if it does, I think all hell will break loose when everything is exposed. I think we will see some great performances . I hope they stop the Sharon story and leave her in the barn. High heels and low cut tops included………

    I knew the moment I saw Billy do that, and how red his hand was afterward, that he probably didn’t intend to hit that table so hard. I was sure he had done some damage. Love you Billy! Great scene 🙂 Get well soon!

    With other soaps dropping like flies I have always stayed true to Y&R, more so now then ever because of Billy Miller.

    Mr. Miller is a great actor, I love it when he is pitted against Eric Braedan.

    I hope the PTB do every thing they can to keep him on Y&R/

    Luv ya Billy Boy…lol

    It’s kind of funny to see that him hitting the table actually did break his hand like they said in the scripts!

    Hope Miller stays in GC, he is one of the BEST actors on show. A ytrue ABBOT in every sense. I can definitely see him steering the ship of Y&R into the future…He truly is perfect and seems genetically an Abbot. (Even looks like one.)
    Case in Point- Broke his hand FOR REAL, while Acting!?! Who does that? Hey Y&R- heads up- DON’T let this fish go! Give Miller what he wants…$$$. He must stay!

    side note- I too recently broke my hand. I knew his cast was for real. Most painful experience next to childbirth ive ever experienced. Definitely deserves a raise dont ya think??? Love his drunken antics- must have studied himself drunk many a times, cuz he acts drunk-all too well 😉

    Oh bring Billy back, and right into Victoria’s arms. It bothers me to see Chloe keep Dellia away from Billy, then blame him for leaving. Hey Y&R writers … make things right again!

    Love Billy Miller, I predict that he will become a major motion picture star. He has “Star Quality” that is for sure. He is also a very fine actor,he has it all, wildly handsome good looks and he just makes me smile whenever he is on camera.Would love to see him do more scenes with Eric Braeden,they are both great in scenes together, two exciting actors. Mr. Braeden is such a great actor,even as good as Billy Miller is, he could learn a great deal by working more with the great Eric Braeden.I hope that Mr Billy Miller stays on Y&R fo now.He will be a big star one day.

DAYS Mary Beth Evans & Stephen Nichols with Guest Ron Carlivati Talk Stayla’s Greatest Hits & Approach To Scripts During COVID-19

To take a stroll down memory lane of reunions past, Mary Beth Evans along with her longtime on-screen scene partner and dear friend, Stephen Nichols, watched back key scenes from the history of Stayla and offered up a second viewing experience as they commented on the clips.

Later, Mary Beth and Stephen are joined by their surprise guest and it is revealed to be Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati!

In her tweet, Evans announced: “Since we’re evidently leading up to something big on #Days … Stephen Nichols and I thought we’d get together & watch some of our reunions from the past. And, we were lucky enough to have a very special guest join us for a chat! #patchandkaylaforever”

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.

Watch Mary Beth, Stephen and Ron in part one of their discussion below. You can find that and more on Mary Beth’s PlankBlog You Tube channel as well.

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.
