The Bold and the Beautiful
ALL THINGS RELATED

“The Bold and the Beautiful” airs Weekdays on CBS. Weeknights on Pop TV. Anytime on CBS.com or the CBS app on Android and iOS enabled devices.

On the Thursday, December 4 broadcast of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report," host Stephen Colbert covered the ambassadorship of "The Bold and the Beautiful" producer Colleen Bell, wife of head writer and executive producer, Bradley P. Bell, with a hilarious take on the drama surrounding her confirmation following some lively comments from Senator John McCain, who strongly disagreed with President Obama's choice of Bell for the position. “We’re about to vote on a totally unqualified individual to be ambassador to a nation which is very important to our national security interest. Her qualifications are as a producer of the television soap opera ‘The Bold and The Beautiful,’ contributed 800,000 [dollars] to Obama in the last election and bundled more than $2.1 million for President Obama’s re-election effort,” said McCain on the Senate floor on Tuesday, December 2, just before Bell was confirmed as the U.S. Ambassador to Hungary with a vote of 52-42.
Kim Matula
On Wednesday, November 5, CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" shocked the daytime world when it announced that Kim Matula would be departing the drama series after nearly five years portraying Hope Logan, but don't fret, Hope will continue being part of the canvas, says head writer and executive producer, Bradley P. Bell.
Actress Jacqueline MacIness Wood is returning to "The Bold and the Beautiful" next week to once again film scenes as Steffy Forrester on the CBS Daytime drama series. Wood, who remains on recurring status with the soap and last appeared in February of this year, will begin airing in late January 2015.
Actress Reign Edwards, who's appeared in episodes of Nickelodeon's "The Thundermans" and "Brain Surge," is set to make her daytime debut in January when she joins the cast of CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" in the contract role of Nicole Avant, Maya's (Karla Mosley) younger sister.
In a story we've been following since its early beginning, Colleen Bell, a producer on "The Bold and the Beautiful" and the wife of Bradley P. Bell, the show's head writer and executive producer, has officially been named the U.S. Ambassador to Hungary, reports ABC News. Her confirmation didn't go without a hitch, however, as Senator John McCain took a strong stand against her confirmation on the Senate floor earlier today.
For the week of November 17-21, 2014, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" hit a season high in total viewers with an average of 5.06 million viewers tuning in each day.

Now that the Thanksgiving holiday has come and gone, Christmas Day will be all the rage this holiday season. If you're not interested in staying home to open your presents and spend time indoors with the family, why not go "Into The Woods" with soap alums Billy Magnussen (ex-Casey Hughes, "As The World Turns") and Mackenzie Mauzy (ex-Phoebe Forrester, "The Bold and the Beautiful")? This holiday season, Disney presents a new whimsical film starring Meryl Streep as The Witch in a modern day twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, while intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. Featured tales include Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel — all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.
