The official statement from "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "The Young and the Restless" on the passing of their co-creator Lee Phillip Bell.
Lee Phillip Bell, co-creator of "The Young and the Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful," has died at 91 years old.
On the Thursday, December 4 broadcast of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report," host <strong>Stephen Colbert</strong> covered the ambassadorship of "The Bold and the Beautiful" producer Colleen Bell, wife of head writer and executive producer, <strong>Bradley P. Bell</strong>, with a hilarious take on the <a title="‘B&B’ Producer Colleen Bell Confirmed as Ambassador to Hungary; Senator John McCain Livid!" href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/12/b-senator-john-mccain-livid">drama surrounding her confirmation</a> following some lively comments from Senator <strong>John McCain</strong>, 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.
In a story we've been <a title="President Obama Nominates ‘B&B’ Producer as U.S. Ambassador" href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2013/11/president-obama-nominates-bb-producer-as-u-s-ambassador" target="_blank">following</a> since its early beginning, <strong>Colleen Bell</strong>, a producer on "The Bold and the Beautiful" and the wife of <strong>Bradley P. Bell</strong>, the show's head writer and executive producer, has officially been named the U.S. Ambassador to Hungary, reports <em>ABC News</em>. Her confirmation didn't go without a hitch, however, as Senator<strong> John McCain</strong> took a strong stand against her confirmation on the Senate floor earlier today.
As we previously reported, “The Bold and the Beautiful” producer Colleen Bell — wife of the show’s executive producer, Bradley P. Bell — has been on track to become the next U.S. Ambassador to Hungary, and the White House announced just yesterday that President Obama has made her nomination in the role official!
Hollywood and politics have gone together like peanut butter and jelly since the original rise of onscreen entertainment, and it looks like soap operas will be the next to join in on the fun. Colleen Bell, producer of “The Bold and the Beautiful” and wife of the show’s executive producer, Bradley P. Bell, is apparently on track to be the next U.S. ambassador to Hungary!
