The Bold and the Beautiful
With Movember slowly drawing to a close, it can’t be that much of a shock to discover that one familiar face is now sporting some impressive whiskers. Take a look at the mustache Tanner Novlan has been growing before digging into the rest of the news for this week.
- Teaming up with someone who should be familiar to fans of daytime, Denise Richards is appearing with Patrick Muldoon, formerly Austin on Days of Our Lives, in the swashbuckling feature film, Timecrafters: The Treasure of Pirate’s Cove.
- While he’s had a hard enough time controlling himself so far, how will Liam react to finding Hope and Thomas together?
In his weekly Bold & Beautiful column, Richard is fascinated by the pacing of the Fauxpe story, explains why it’s Liam’s job to always be right, suspects Finn’s days are numbered, and notices that this is the only soap where characters don’t live in a hotel.
Days of Our Lives
The latest fight between Lani and Eli saw her kicking him out, at least in part because of the growing rift between the recently married couple over her friendship with one less-than-savory Salemite. But which of them is right in the debate over Kristen?
- It has been a while since their doomed romance played out on your television screen, but True O’Brien (Paige) and Casey Moss (JJ) are still a couple in real life. Take a peek at how she celebrated his birthday and paid homage to her handsome beau.
- Although she’s currently busy with an exciting passion project that’s been in the works for years, Lisa Rinna will always return as Billie. Find out why and what she’s doing now.
Richard loved the old-fashioned catfight between Jennifer and Kate, isn’t sure what to think of Kristen, loves Jan but finds her plot hard to connect to, and is still enjoying Gwen manipulating Chad’s jealousy, in his Days of Our Lives column.
She may have just made a dramatic departure from Port Charles, but don’t count on Brook Lynn being gone too terribly long. Briana Lane has exited as the controversial Quartermaine and the role will be resumed by Amanda Setton, who went on maternity leave earlier this year. No word yet on when Brook Lynn will be back, but it looks like she might not be coming back alone. We have a few guesses about who the father of her baby is.
- With the help of a rare photo, Maurice Benard shared the story about how his friendship with Steve Burton developed.
- Brenda’s former portrayer Vanessa Marcil offered parenting advice and admitted to her failings as a mother.

- We take a walk down memory lane with an iconic character while celebrating the 42nd anniversary of Anthony Geary’s debut as Luke Spencer.
Dustin is excited by the prospect of Brook Lynn’s pregnancy but dreading the likelihood that Michael and Willow could be in the family way, thinks Julian is digging his own grave with both Sonny and Cyrus, finds drunken Alexis stale, and doesn’t expect anyone to die in The Floating Rib explosion in the new General Hospital column.
The Young and the Restless
