Kyle Lowder may no longer inhabit the roles of Brady Black on Days of Our Lives, or Rick Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful, but he is still getting his boy-bitch on! Check out Lowder, along with his former B&B granny Robin Riker and Dynasty veteran Gordon Thompson, in the Season 3 trailer for Michael Caruso's scandalous web sudser DeVanity.
Lowder's real-life wife Arianne Zucker, Dallas 1.0 and 2.0 star Charlene Tilton and The Colby's Maxwell Caulfield also appear in Season 3. Watch the trailer after the jump!
It's the Brady and Nicole reunion Days of Our Lives fans have been waiting for; only this time they're siblings! No, I'm not talking about a storyline written by David Kreizman and produced by Ellen Wheeler in a New Jersey pasture. I'm referring to the awesome news that Arianne Zucker will be joining her real-life hubby and former DAYS leading man Kyle Lowder in Season 3 of DeVanity! Zucker will be playing Julia Regis, sister of Lowder's character, ruthless jewelry scion Andrew Regis.
"She will attack the women of the DeVanity family with full force when they least expect it.” said series creator and star Michael Caruso. “If you think you’ve seen Arianne play bad before, think again. She is definitely going to turn up the heat DeVanity style and cause trouble on a massive scale. We are really looking forward to working with her. It will also be a fun opportunity for her to share the screen again with Kyle; I think the audience will be thrilled with her episode.”
Tonight's the night, webisoap watchers! Daytime grad Kyle Lowder (ex-Brady, Days of Our Lives; ex-Rick, The Bold and the Beautiful) makes his debut on the outrageously entertaining SFN webisoap DeVanity.

Anyone who recalls Lowder's camptastic villainy as Rick Forrester opposite Ron Moss' Ridge on The Bold and the Beautiful knows this is a role he was born to play. DeVanity airs at 6 pm PST/9 pm EST exclusively on www.sfntv.com. Watch a trailer for Season 2 after the jump!
The Bold and the Beautiful’s Kyle Lowder has a new side gig to keep him busy. Lowder will be appearing in the second season of the web soap DeVanity, for a three-episode arc as a villain. In a press release for the series, creator Michael Caruso reveals it will be a bit of a reunion.
“Kyle and I actually went to college together along with Mike Dirksen (Alex Roth) and Erin Buckley (Jackie DeVanity), so it feels like a reunion of old friends more than anything else. I am thrilled and honored that he has agreed to be a part of DeVanity, and I know he’s going to make an incredible addition to the cast.”

Kyle Lowder has been let go from The Bold and The Beautiful, according to Soap Opera Digest. Lowder portrayed Rick Forrester on the sudser for four years, and his last airdate has not been announced. Here's what Lowder had to say about his separation from B&B:
Brad [Bell, executive producer/head writer] called this morning and said he felt terrible that they haven't been able to generate enough story for the character," reveals the actor. "He felt it was in everybody's best interest that we go in different directions. From my standpoint, it's an amicable situation. Obviously, it's their choice, but at the same time, the story has been slow for over a year-and-a-half and like any professional in any line of work would do, you prepare yourself for the next step. So, it wasn't a surprise that it was going to happen, but it was handled in the most respectful way and I have huge respect for Brad. I had a great four years there and I thank him for the opportunity. And now, onto the next thing.
