Through the years, Bold and the Beautiful has covered current issues such as HIV, rape, homelessness, child abuse and drug/alcohol dependency. The soap has also put its Los Angeles location to good use by casting Hollywood legends such as Phyllis Diller, Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray, Betty White, Usher, Charlton Heston, Mike Piazza, Erik Estrada and Dionne Warwick to appear as either themselves or a character.
"THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL'S unique combination of deep romance and brash story telling has made it a signature part of the CBS Daytime lineup," said Barbara Bloom, Sr. Vice President of Daytime Programs, CBS. "We salute the Bell family and the extraordinary cast and crew on achieving this milestone."
"Twenty years ago, I could have never imagined what was in store," said Bradley P. Bell. The show is "now over 5000 episodes strong and viewed in more than 140 countries. These past two decades have been a fantastic journey of storytelling through an endless barrage of blank pages eager to be filled with romance, intrigue, cliffhangers and sometimes teardrops. My thanks to CBS, whose support has been integral to our success, and to our viewers for their steadfast loyalty."
