The Bold and the Beautiful

Real life pilot Jake Pavelka, best known as the star of ABC’s 14th season of “The Bachelor” and season two of “Bachelor Pad,” will reprise his role as the pilot of the Forrester private jet on CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful." The actor taped his scenes on Friday, June 21, per a tweet in which the actor/reality star said, "Some quick touch ups before filming a scene. This stuff makes my face break out!" The tweet was accompanied by an image showing Pavelka getting ready in hair and makeup. In the background fans can spot Don Diamont's Bill Spencer and an unknown blonde either working through their scripts or their characters going over paperwork.
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!”
In a bizarre twist of modern family drama, Shanelle Gray (ex-Gaby Moreno, “The Bold and the Beautiful;” ex-Sarah “Flash” Roberts, “One Life to Live”) may be losing custody of her... sister. Yep, that’s right: Seven months ago, the former soap opera actress gained custody of her little sister, “Modern Family” star Ariel Winter (Alex Dunphy), after their mother, Chrisoula Workman, was accused of alleged physical and emotional abuse toward the 15-year-old. But now, Workman has asked the courts to re-examine their decision!

Bella Book Productions and Open Books Productions announced today that former "Days of our Lives" and "General Hospital" actress, Sarah Joy Brown, has joined the cast of the webs series "Beacon Hill," which follows the political world in Boston, Massachusetts. Filming is set to begin later this fall in and around Boston.
Longtime actor Jerry Ayres — also known as Gerald Holt Ayres — 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 rom 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!
