Katherine Kelly Lang
Katie Logan Spencer (Heather Tom) doesn't put much stock in the value of a Dollar Bill (Don Diamont) these days on The Bold and the Beautiful. The new CEO of Spencer Publications tells her ex she wants him out of her life on today's show.
Can Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) "make Katie listen" to her concerning little sister's coup at the media conglomerate? Don't bet on it.
Brooke also has some advice for Bill's son Liam (Scott Clifton) — either put up or shut up where Hope (Kim Matula) is concerned. Speaking of Liam, Hope thinks he and Baby Will may not be the only pennies Dollar Bill made change for. Watch today's B&B teaser after the jump!
Do I smell a custody battle coming on CBS Daytime's The Bold and the Beautiful?

On today's Daytime Confidential podcast Luke Kerr, Jamey Giddens, Jillian Bowe, Regan Cellura and Melodie Aikels debate the ever-so-awkward 2013 Daytime Emmy Awards. They dish out some tough love to General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and One Life to Live, while applauding Days of Our Lives, The Bold and the Beautiful and All My Children.
From screwing up journalist credentials to Aisha Tyler having to save the day, the production of the 2013 Daytime Emmy Awards was an awkward mess. Kristen Alderson and Chandler Massey won the Younger Actress and Actor Awards. General Hospital’s Julie Marie Berman beat out Katherine Kelly Lang in the Supporting Actress category. Billy Miller and Scott Clifton tied in Supporting Actor. Heather Tom reigned supreme as the Lead Actress winner. Doug Davidson’s tears helped him win Lead Actor. Jamey dishes scoop from the Daytime Emmy red carpet, press room and after parties. Also, who would win in a cry off, Davidson, Jonathon Jackson or someone else? Days of Our Lives pulled off a major upset by winning Outstanding Drama.
Kelly Sullivan is out at General Hospital. Who knew spending two years on a soap made an actor a veteran? Does anyone actually believe that Monica would let the man inadvertedly responsible for Michael’s rape live in the Quartermaine mansion? GH cannot push the fact that Franco is a serial killer under the rug, in its failed attempt to make him a corporate raider. If GH cannot fix Franco quickly, should the ABC soap let Roger Howarth go at the end of his contract? When fans asked for more Quartermaines they expected to see more Quartermaine favorites, not new characters in the Quartermaine mansion.
Lightning did not strike twice for Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco. General Hospital needs to get Silas and Sam out of each other’s orbit, ASAP. Would Silas being part of a hospital takeover storyline, where he faced off against Patrick, save the character? Who could have guessed that, of the three former One Life to Live stars, it would be Kristen Alderson’s Kiki that fit back into the canvas best?
Maura West’s Ava Jerome has been a revelation, but she needs to be quickly moved out of the Franco storyline. GH should play up the Jerome mob history. Should General Hospital bring Lucas Spencer, a Jerome by blood, back to Port Charles? Would he make a good love interest for Felix?
Did Prospect Park really need Roger Howarth, Michael Easton and Kristen Alderson on One Life to Live? All My Children has been fantastic without Susan Lucci, but One Life to Live got Howarth back and has wasted him. Does this prove once and for all the success of a soap is less about the star and more about the writing? OLTL needs to be fixed quickly.
The Young and the Restless even more problems than General Hospital. Mark your calendars, because Daytime Confidential’s Jamey Giddens is FINALLY over Villy. Summer’s paternity storyline and Phyllis trying to keep her daughter from Kyle has exposed problems with Y&R’s storytelling. Was it a mistake to recast Kyle in the middle of a major storyline? Has Y&R hurt itself by recasting so many characters?
Jamey has a solution for Y&R’s Dylan problem. Why has the soap been telling such a lame MS storyline for Melody Thomas Scott’s Nikki? Jillian suggests a possible MS storyline that could have been epic. Luke wonders why so many couples—Summer and Kyle, Abby and Detective Chavez, Dylan and Chelsea and Kevin and Chloe—lack chemistry. Mel wants to see Tyler and Lily have sex.
Y&R’s single saving grace has been the Michael/Lauren/Carmine/Fen storyline. The DC gang doesn’t want to see Carmine killed off. However, if Y&R does get rid of Carmine, should GH snap Marco Dapper up? Mel is not happy about Adam’s storyline or hopping into bed with yet another new character. Jamey reveals how he thinks Y&R should have told Adam and Chelsea’s storyline.
Why I Wish My Invitation to Jack Abbott's Birthday Party on The Young and the Restless Had Been Lost in The MailBy Jamey Giddens on July 02, 2013
I could use so many classic literary titles and/or phrases to begin this post about what went wrong Monday on CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless, as opposed to everything sister soap, The Bold and the Beautiful, did right. It Was The Best of Soaps, It Was The Worst of Soaps — A Tale of Two Bell Sudsers. READ MORE
Heather Tom may as well get her Daytime Emmy gear ready for next year’s ceremony, as she definitely served up her reel in Monday's episode. Taylor (Hunter Tylo) would not let Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) get away with her tryst with Bill (Don Diamont) — damn the psychiatrist's career, Katie’s heart or her relationship with Eric (John McCook) for that matter.
Taylor’s persistence opposite Katie’s insistence in believing she was lying, provided fantastic drama for this 30-minute soap opera, especially when Brooke couldn't deny a damn thing. How heartbreaking was it to watch Katie beg the older sister, who meant the world to her, to tell her it was all a lie? READ MORE
The Prada-clad poop hits the fan today on The Bold and the Beautiful. Dr. Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo) is hellbent on ruining Brooke Logan's (Katherine Kelly Lang) birthday party, by spilling all to Katie (Heather Tom) about Brill's secret rendevous.
I wish Dollar Bill (Don Diamont) would just haul off and jab that hateful shrink with his tiny sword. The one around his neck, people! Meanwhile, Thomas (Adam Gregory) is trying to figure everything out. Oh Tom-Tom, just stand there and look pretty. Watch today's B&B teaser after the jump!
