The Bold and the Beautiful
Although she hasn’t appeared on screen in over a year, it was still shocking to hear Karla Mosley say aloud that she was no longer a part of the soap’s family. Meanwhile, although Shauna has officially lost Ridge to Brooke, what does that mean for the future of the iconic pair? And is the audience feeling burnt-out from Ridge and Brooke’s pattern of semi-annual breaking up and reuniting? Check out the fall previews, including spoilers and some predictions about what’s in store. Will Quinn be shopping around for a new partner now that things are kaput with Eric? Is she going to attempt to go good, or start channeling her dark side again with a little help from Bill? Get a look at Jacqueline MacInnes Wood’s (Steffy) newly revamped Hollywood Hills home now that she’s put it back on the market. And learn how Ashley Jones (ex-Bridget) coped with a recent cancer scare before watching the fresh faces that have been added to the show’s opening credits in the Bold and the Beautiful news room. Plus, in this week’s column, Richard discusses the soap’s latest jarring swerves — including the weirdly anti-climactic wedding — Ridge’s magic talent with roses, and why he’s #TeamQuinn in the Bold and the Beautiful column.
Days of Our Lives
Kristian Alfonso offered a tearful preview of her final scenes as Hope Brady. The actress also weighed in on the questionable way that her character has been written out, including her attitude toward Ben and believing Vincent’s dubious story. In the latest spoiler video, see how the men are in a rage in the wake of Allie’s allegations against Tripp. John can hardly control himself.

It was Mike’s funeral last week and it wasn’t only the fictional characters who had a hard time finally saying goodbye. See how the actors reacted to his sad passing before getting the good news that Maurice Benard (Sonny) shared about the grandchild he is expecting. Over the past few weeks, viewers have been wondering why Kristina has been missing from the picture while her family went through a hard time. She finally came back, but will this make things better or worse? Laura Wright (Carly) helped her boyfriend and co-star Wes Ramey (Peter) celebrate his birthday with a visit to his happy place. Her on-screen daughter, Eden McCoy (Joss) reassured viewers that she isn’t going anywhere and shared some secrets from behind-the-scenes. We wonder why Jason and Sam have not gotten remarried now that nothing stands in their way. Steve Burton (Jason) insisted that there is no chance that his character was going to reunite with Liz.

Brytni Sarpy (Elena) weighed in on her character’s future with Devon and explained the real reason she slept with Nate.
