A recent casting breakdown for the “The Bold and the Beautiful” has rumors flying that the show plans to recast Ridge Forrester, a role which original portrayer Ronn Moss decided to depart from late last year. The breakdown describes a mid-to-late-40s character named Harper as “Handsome! Very upscale. Great business man. A commanding presence. Refined — comes from money. At least 5’11”. Contract role — Strong credits only!” But will it really be Ridge?

While the description certainly comes close to Stephanie’s son, a rep for the show informs Soap Opera Network that ‘B&B’ has no plans to recast Ridge at this time.

However, that’s not to say that there won’t be a Ridge 2.0 in the future! As we previously reported, executive producer and headwriter Bradley P. Bell has revealed that he does plan to eventually recast the role if need be. As of now, it’s just a matter of when…

Most 4th of July barbeques entail a few hamburgers and hotdogs getting fired up on the grill, but that wasn’t the case for some Port Charles residents on “General Hospital,” who instead saw Emma’s (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) baby doll, Ariel, go up in flames in place of the typical tasty treats. And the clip, which has Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) throwing the plastic doll off her lap and onto the grill after it tinkles on her, made it onto the website for E! Entertainment Television’s comedic series, ‘The Soup!’ “Not everyone is good with kids,” says Tim Jennings about the clip. “In fact, if you don’t have one and aren’t used to interacting with them, a conversation with a random child can end up feeling awkward. If this ever happens to you, don’t despair. At the very least, it will never be as bad as what happened to Britt on ‘General Hospital’ this week.”
