The Bold and the Beautiful

It has only been two months since she gave birth and yet Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy) stunned her co-workers and Instagram followers by showing off her bikini body on the beach. People were a lot less impressed by our ideas about what should happen next for Steffy and Finn, but they had plenty of their own ideas for what couple’s future should hold.

In the latest Bold & Beautiful column, Candace isn’t sure what to make of Bill and Liam’s clashes, is still waiting for the promised murder mystery to materialize, and was happily surprised by Quinn and Carter’s chemistry.

Days of Our Lives

Every year, Days fans have a few tense moments waiting to hear if the series has been renewed for another season. That tension was cranked up a few notches when it was announced that the soap has halted taping new episodes, but this isn’t necessarily the bad news it sounds like. You don’t want to miss the latest details about the future of Days and why we have reason to hope for the best.

Lori thinks Ciara’s return has tarnished everyone it has touched, Rafe’s investigation is a joke and Ava was redeemed way too quickly. On the plus side, she continues to be delighted by Xander and Chanel’s story in the latest Days of Our Lives column.

General Hospital

Josh Swickard (Chase) seems to be having no trouble settling into his exciting new role as a father. No doubt it helps that he seems to be spending so much of it on the beach. The actor shared some sweet family photos of him and his wife Lauren on the sand with baby Savannah. You won’t want to miss even more photos of the happy family.

Dustin hopes that we can finally stop seeing Cyrus pine for his mother, was happy to see Anna getting back into form, and was relieved that things are heating up in Nixon Falls (finally!) in his General Hospital column.

The Young and the Restless
