Is a doctor checking out at The Bold and the Beautiful? Hunter Tylo (Taylor) posted a message on her website this morning stating she was off contract with the CBS sudser. Tylo also commented on TV daughter Jacqueline MacInnes Wood's (Steffy) status with B&B.
I am getting bombarded with questions to quell rumors, and here, in my Forum I will clarify that Jackie and I are (coincidentally) off our contracts. I have been very successful outside of B&B and I have no doubt she will too - and moreso, because she is free and single to travel all over
