Longtime actor Jerry Ayres — also known as Gerald Holt Ayres, Jr — died of natural causes at his home in Valley Village, California, on May 14. Soap fans may remember Ayres as “Dynasty’s” Tom, as “General Hospital’s” David Hamilton, which he played from 1978 to 1979, or as “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Conway Weston, which he played from 1987 to 1988.
She makes motherhood look effortless and just won her fifth Emmy, making everyone wonder if there’s anything “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Heather Tom (Katie Logan) can’t do. Well, apparently not, as she’s also quite the interior design expert, which she has proven alongside her husband, James Achor, in the pair’s new HGTV design show, “Renovation Unscripted.” But don’t fret if you missed the premiere of the fun reality series: HGTV is airing episodes this weekend!
On Sunday, June 16, CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless” were the big winners at the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards, which celebrated the best in soaps, talk, game shows and more.

In addition to the CBS soaps, NBC has released a promo highlighting “Days of our Lives’” win for Outstanding Drama Series and Chandler Massey‘s (Will Horton) second win for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series.
Winning seven Emmy Awards was “The Ellen Show.”
On Today’s episode of “The Bold and the Beautiful,” Darin Brooks debuted as Wyatt Fuller, who Hope Logan (Kim Matula) got more than an eyeful of while the sexy man was taking a shower outdoors.
For the week of June 10-14, 2013, CBS Daytime once again led all networks in the households and total viewers.

In honor of the combined Emmy wins for “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless,” the e-book version of the popular biography “Young and Restless Life of William J. Bell: Creator of The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful” is on sale!
On the Tuesday, June 18 episode of CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful,” Rick Forrester and Maya Avant (portrayed by actors Jacob Young and Karla Mosley) made love with the appropriately titled song “We Got Love” playing in the background.
