Katherine Kelly Lang
Leave it to The Bold and the Beautiful boss Brad Bell to make me burst out into a fit of hysterical, crazed, giggle-farts, following a day of trying to stay on top of one depressing daytime-related headline after another. In a new TV Guide exclusive, Bell gives Michael Logan the deets on the fabulous Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) possibly boinking her sex god, 20-something stepson Thomas (Adam Gregory), while under the infleunce of...berries.
TV Guide Magazine: Psychedelic-fruit sex — another B&B first! So what's the scoop?
Bell: Well, Brooke and Thomas wash ashore on a Fijian island but it's no tropical paradise — it's more like a sand dune with a few scrappy bushes and a cave. They're near starvation, near dehydration, and they finally find nourishment in the form of these berries that turn out to have psychedelic and aphrodisiac properties. So let the games begin.
TV Guide Magazine: Is this based on any kind of actual tropical-fruit science or did you just make this stuff up?
Bell:These are totally fictitious berries.
Aww sookie, sookie now! The Bold and the Beautiful's head writer/showrunner Brad Bell spilled the tea to TV Guide's Michael Logan about Thomas' (Adam Gregory) attempts at pursuing Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and if it will make a comeback.
We are not backing off from the possibility of a Thomas-Brooke romance. This is a slow burn and we will continue to walk the tightrope with those two. Will we go there? Will it happen? We're going to be flirting with that for awhile. Sometimes when you play with fire you get burned.
Uh oh... Seems like Thomas will get burned according to Logan, Ridge (Ronn Moss) discovers his son stole a kiss from his wife! The chiseled one won't take this lying down. March 7 is must see for B&B!
The fantastic Katherine Kelly Lang and the fabulous Melody Thomas Scott (pictured above) lit up the red carpet at the Directors Guild Awards in Los Angeles on January 29. One Life to Live’s Larry Carpenter took home the award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Daytime Serials, marking his third award and seventh nomination. See photos of Thomas Scott, her husband Ed Scott, Lang, Carpenter and Ron Moss after the jump! READ MORE
The Bold and the Beautiful’s Taylor/Ridge/Brooke triangle is a thing of legend, but after all these years, it it certainly isn’t fresh. In a piece at Fancast.com, Sara Bibel tackles why Taylor (Hunter Tylo) and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) still act as if The Chiseled One (Ronn Moss) is the only man that keeps their hormones pumping.
As I screamed, “What are you, twelve?” at my television, I realized that may be the appeal of the triangle. Despite their decades of complicated history, Taylor and Brooke both still feel that Ridge is their Edward Cullen.
Their love for him is an intense and irrational as a teenager’s. It is not tempered by their experiences with him, experiences that should have taught them that he is far from perfect. On some level, the idea of being that excited about a man, putting him up on a pedestal despite even after messy break ups and raising children together, is appealing.
In this week’s Deep Soap, Sara Bibel weighs in on Stephanie’s (Susan Flannery) stage four cancer storyline playing out on The Bold and the Beautiful, calling it “that rarest of daytime storylines: a celebration of female friendship” and applauding its emotional resonance. However, it’s her suggestion “I would like to see: Pam makes Stephanie a batch of her infamous Lemon Bars with Legal-in-California Medical Marijuana” that made me think “I’d love to watch that.”
B&B excels at incorporating the cheesiest of moments into the weightiest of storylines, so why not stir the pot, as it were, and bring one of California’s hottest topics into its storyline? I can just see Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) finding Stephanie after she’s had herself several “enhanced” lemon bars and in the midst of a munchie attack, can't you?
The Bold and the Beautiful’s teen set took center stage at the beginning of last week. Sweet-yet-drippy Hope battled with supposed “vixen” Steffy for the affections of Oliver. Oh, how we yawned. Is Steffy starting to have real feelings for the DJ-turned-filmmaker? Or is she just out to make Hope’s life hell? It’s a mystery. As is the reason a school dance was held at Forrester Creations in the first place. Another mystery: why does that fool Marcus keep cheerleading for Steffy? She already admitted to hating the Logans, and would gladly have his mother thrown out of FC on her derriere. Yet still he stands around, all "aw, shucks, Steffy, you’re awesome." We learned that he has a girlfriend, so at least Mr Smiles is getting some. READ MORE
