Y&R's Peter Bergman on Dopplegangers & Jack finds Emily!

Peter Bergman finally had the opportunity to speak his mind on the current overuse of soap dopplegangers on his show, The Young and the Restless to Tv Guide Magazine.  First, Patty is Emily, and now Sarah is Lauren, etc, etc.   However, May 3rd is a red letter day!  That is when Bergman’s alter-ego Jack Abbott will learn that he has made a big boo-boo.  Patty incarcerated and locked up Emily, and he married the false face. The three-time Daytime Emmy winner had some choice words on seeing doubles all around Genoa City!

Bergman on duel roles : It has never been my favorite plot device but to the ever-loving credit of  Stacy Haiduk[Patty/Emily] she has made it absolutely winning. She has gone to every limit, and has been incredibly brave. I think she has been strongly undermined by having a second character in Genoa City with the same kind of plastic surgery, and this is no reflection on Tracey Bregman [who plays doppelgangers Lauren and Sarah]. I perhaps flatter myself but I think the audience did roll with the Patty/Emily story. Then we had to sully it by trying it a second time.

Bergman on when Logan reminds the star that Y&R has done the plastic surgery device not twice, but three times on the series: “There is a tradition to this. The old-timers on Y&R always talk about the golden Bill Bell days, and indeed they were golden, but when I first got here there was a plot about Jill’s psychotic secretary, David, who went to a plastic surgeon wanting to look like David Hasselhoff and wound up with the word “Killer” carved across his forehead. And then he died in a trash compactor! At the time I thought that was pretty outrageous. It was hardly kitchen sink verisimilitude. So there is some precedent. [Laughs] But I think having two characters with plastic surgery at the same time is perhaps groundbreaking.”

I don’t believe that duo plastic surgery is groundbreaking. I think that this storyline is a total distraction from the Patty/Emily story. Stacy is doing a fantastic job. I hope she can sleep at night. I predict a definite Emmy here. Let Ryder help Jana and Lauren and end this story. Puhleese…

If Bergman meant that it’s groundbreakingly stupid, then he’s right. Bergman actually is very ungentlemanly for calling Rowell “not quite there” and “not dealing w/ a full deck” (crazy). Yet he has gotten into an onset boxing match w/ eric Braeden. He probably got pummelled since Braeden is a boxer. Bergman should know better than to comment on an actor when he himself is allegedly “unprofessional”. And he even admitted to breaking out of character while he was in the background on AMC, until Susan Lucci put him in his place. LOL! Bergman is contributing to the destruction of Y&R… Read more »

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
