Bell also explains what's going on with creepy Aly Ashlyn Pearce). Check out an excerpt:
TV Guide Magazine: Ridge and Katie sealing the deal with sex (March 18) must be devastating for Brooke, no?
Bradley Bell: Brooke is completely stunned. Her head is spinning. She never loses! It's such a foreign concept to her that she could be No. 2 — and losing Ridge to her sister, Katie, of all people! When B&B started, who would have thought that little Katie with the pimples would steal away the one and only Ridge Forrester? [Laughs] It was the ultimate long shot! Brooke feels very betrayed by Katie.
Location shoots are alive and well at The Bold and the Beautiful. TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan is reporting B&B is jetting off to film in the United Arab Emirates, for a storyline featuring Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Bill (Don Diamont).
The idea to tape in Abu Dhabi and Dubai came about courtesy of Lang, who is participating in a triathlon inAbu Dhabi. According to showrunner Brad Bell:
"Kelly asked me for time off to take part in the event and I said, 'Well, how about we all come with you?" reveals Bell. "So we're going to back up the station wagon and all pile in!" READ MORE
Forget about holiday cheer. Devin DeVasquez, wife of ex-The Bold and the Beautiful leading man Ronn Moss (ex-Ridge), is offering up nothing but shade under her tree this Christmas!

How will The Bold and the Beautiful's Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) react to everything that has transpired during his absence, namely former wife Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) having played hide-the-sword with Bill (Don Diamont)? Could Brooke's actions cause Ridge to look in her little sister Katie's (Heather Tom) direction?
TV Guide Magazine: Given your love for twisted romance, will you have Ridge fall Katie? It would drive Bill and Brooke crazy!
Bell: [Laughs] Well... maybe I will. Anything is possible! Thorsten makes a fantastic Ridge — very different from [predecessor] Ronn Moss. He'll really electrify the show. Bill has been cock-of-the-walk for way too long. He needs a little competition! And that's exactly what he's going to get! We're going to find out that Ridge has gone through something very significant during his time away — something that's really changed him. There's only one Ronn Moss and he was splendid, but now we have a new and very different Ridge and it's exciting to write for him.
Goodbye scarves and Speedos, hello scruff and couture hockey jerseys? In the Dec. 2-16 issue of CBS Soaps In Depth, Brad Bell answered many burning questions about the casting of All My Children superstar Thorsten Kaye as Ridge Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful. Here's an excerpt:
Q. This casting choice seems to indicate that you're not looking to replicate Ronn's portrayal. Will this new version of Ridge be different not only in looks but also in personality?
"Absolutely. We're going to write a Ridge that is very reflective of Thorsten. I get so much of my inspiration from the actors and what they bring to the role, so I'll be studying him very closely and trying to capture his spirit and play to his strengths." READ MORE
