There’s been some recent buzz that Hunter Tylo may soon be returning as “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Dr. Taylor Hayes, but are the rumors true?

Unfortunately for fans of the actress (who’s played Taylor on again/off again since 1990) , her team took to Facebook to quiet the reprisal buzz once and for all: “Rumors are out there, that Hunter Tylo is in talks with ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ to reprise her role as Dr. Taylor Hayes, beginning next month,” the post says. “There is no truth to those rumors, no talks are in place between Hunter and ‘The Bold and the Beautiful.’ We thank you all for the love and support you are showing Hunter.”

For those of you missing the adventures of Taylor, you can check out the latest “B&B” e-book “Collision Course,” which officially went on sale today! The book details how Taylor gets to know the real Bill (Don Diamont) after she discovers he is trying unsuccessfully to cover up his severe Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, caused by a near-fatal plane crash. Order the book at Amazon.com.

It’s been a whopping seven years since larger-than-life personality Rosie O’Donnell has been a part of “The View,” but executive producers Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie announced today that the actress/comedian is returning to the popular talk show!

Friday, February 7 marks O’Donnell’s appearance alongside current co-hosts Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy. As fans may recall, the current “The Fosters” actress previously held the position as moderator for “The View” from 2005-2007 but left under less-than-friendly circumstances (both a contract dispute with ABC and her inability to get along with former co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck played out onscreen).

It looks like 2014 is getting off to a rocky start for former “CSI: Miami” star Eva LaRue (ex-Maria Santos, “All My Children”), whose current husband, Joseph Cappuccio, has filed for divorce.

TMZ obtained divorce documents for the couple, which Cappuccio filed citing irreconcilable differences. The seafood businessman has also asked the court to reject any requests LaRue might make for spousal support.

As soap fans may recall, this marks LaRue’s third divorce; she was previously married to “Seinfeld” actor John O’Hurley and former “AMC” star John Callahan (ex-Edmund Grey), with whom she shares 12-year-old daughter, Kayla.
