B&B: PAULO BENEDETI (EX-GL; EX-B&B) RETURNS TO B&B NEXT WEEK FOR STEPHANIE'S FAREWELL PARTY!
* Paulo Benedeti (ex-GL; ex-B&B) will appear briefly as Tony the week of November 12 at Stephanie's party, according to Soap Opera Digest.
For those not in the know, Tony came to LA and fell in love with Kristen, Eric and Stephanie's daughter. Tony is HIV+, Kristen is not. Eric and Stephanie were adamantly opposed to Tony and Kristen's relationship due to Tony being HIV+. But they were eventually won over by the fact that Tony and Kristen really loved each other and the fact that Tony would never do anything to harm Kristen. Tony and Kristen knew that they could not have children of their own. So, they adopted an African-American son (who's name escapes me right now). Tony, Kristen and their son left LA with Kristen and their son making one or two other appearances on the show. This will be Paulo's first appearance on B&B in more than a decade.
This was B&B's first ever HIV/AIDS storyline and they handled it very well.
