On Friday, December 13, Ridge Forrester returns to CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” as played by daytime soap veteran, Thorsten Kaye. The actor takes over the role from Ronn Moss, who departed the series in 2012. In a promo released by the network, Ridge drives up the Forrester driveway and gets ready to embark on a new journey, but where does he fit in? You’ll just have to tune in to find out!
With its combination of soaps, game shows and a talk show, the CBS Daytime lineup consisting of “The Young and the Restless,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Let’s Make a Deal,” “The Price is Right” and “The Talk” posted growth during the November 2013 sweeps period, according to Nielsen Live Plus Sam Day ratings data.
It’s a baby kind of day today: Not only are “The Young and the Restless’” Robert Adamson (Noah Newman) and “The Bold and the Beautiful’s’” Linsey Godfrey expecting their first child together (which you can read more about here), “One Life to Live” alums Kamar de los Reyes (ex-Antonio Vega) and Sherri Saum (ex-Keri Reynolds; Lena, “The Fosters”) are reportedly expecting twins!
“[The pair] are so thrilled to welcome the little ones into the world in early summer,” says Saum’s rep in a statement shared with US Weekly.
“We are so excited,” Saum adds via Twitter, where she also posted a sonogram picture. “No plans to bring this into the show, they already have so many amazing stories to tell — we’ll work it out somehow!”
Congratulations Saum and de los Reyes!
Halloween 2014 is looking super spooky already: Soap stars Brandon Beemer (ex-Owen Knight, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) and Felisha Terrell (ex-Arianna Hernandez, “Days of our Lives”) have joined the cast of “Fear Clinic,” a horror film based on the successful FearNet.com web series “The Fear Chamber.”
The film version follows Robert Englund (Freddy Kruger in the “Nightmare Before Elm Street” franchise) as Dr. Andover, a physician who treats patients afflicted with crippling phobias via hallucinations he creates using his homemade exposure therapy invention, The Fear Chamber. A tragic event sends five people to the good doctor who, while trying to help them overcome their trauma, discovers something very sinister may be at work.
The flood of “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless” stars visiting “The Price Is Right” as celebrity guest models continues this month, the network recently announced. Keep your eyes peeled on the following dates:
“The Young and the Restless’” Robert Adamson (Noah Newman) and “The Bold and the Beautiful’s’” Linsey Godfrey (Caroline Spencer) have good news to share: The couple are expecting a baby together!
Adamson shared the happy news on Facebook that Godfrey is carrying his child; a picture of her sonogram photo was included. “Guess What?! How do I tag a future family member?” he wrote. “Should I make it a page? — with Linsey Michelle.”
The actor later posted another update announcing that Godfrey is 11 ½ weeks along in her pregnancy.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
