295 May 20th, 2013 B&B Scribe Patrick Mulcahey and Former Co-Star Ronn Moss Come To The Defense Of Katherine Kelly Lang!

Courtesy/CBS

Enough is enough!  And now one of the most prolific writers in soap opera history and one of the scribes of the writing team of The Bold and the Beautiful, Patrick Mulcahey has come to the defense of Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke, B&B), and the online banter that has fans accusing the star of sitting in the “writer’s room” or even thinking that the long time series star, writes the show!

In addition to Mulcahey, Lang’s former co-star Ronn Moss also fired back adding his comments on the allegations towards Lang on his facebook page relating: “Always amazing the way some people seem to love propagating such untrue bullshit. Their motivations are so often ego driven, insecurity driven, or just plain nasty. But the saving grace is it often backfires on them and then they have to live with that.”

Here below is what Mulcahey had to say on the situation.   Now after the jump, let us know what you think of his and Ronn Moss’ comments and the ridiculous rumors on Katherine Kelly Lang and the writing team!

    I am glad they said something. Why not blame the writers for the mess B&B has become? Brooke is the most tortured soap character ever: Deacon, Nick, Oliver, Thomas, Bill. Watch Bell have her sleep with Liam next. I seriously doubt KKL would write Brooke as sleeping with her sister’s husband, if she was in the room with the writers.

    This is so unfair to KKL!

    First, I have been a fan from day one. KKL is awesome. For the writers to put her thru all the crap they have and then after all this time to go and do it yet again. I am sick of it. It is her time to shine as best she can. The BB Show has went in the toilet. Not because of the actors it is the writers. KKL gets the short end of the stick. Then Hunter T is a saint. HELLO people she killed someone while drunk oh but that is okay… Hell I can go on and on about how she can do no wrong. Wake up and get some good writers that write a HOT story line that we can all enjoy and believe in. What happend to all the LOVE and Romance????????????? KKL has been crying for over 20 years. Now their daughters are going at it over a wimp that can not make up his mind. Gzzzzzz people come on……. I have so much more to say but It just makes me mad. I hate how the actors are treated and how the story lines fall.

    I hate how the actors are treated too. It’s perplexing how some people cannot or will not disconnect the actor from his/her role.

    There is just no more morals in this show, and they are definitely gonna lose ratings..I hate what they do to KKL

    I think the writers are to blame. They made Brookes character from day one very sleezy. And the Steffy and Liam has gotten so boring. They need to do something Viewers are aggravated. So now Brooke wants Eric to claim he is the father of Bills baby. What a mess. Since Ridge and Stehanie have gone the show has lost something. Wish they were stillon.

    Having Brookes character sleep with her BrotherinLaw is disgusting and when Katie finds out shell go off the deep end. This show lacks decent morals I bet the actors hate playing these miserable parts. I think in real life people may actually hate them thinking of how disgusting they are on the show.

    why should KKL have to be made the villian of the show and be made out that she sits in on what the scripts are it is not her fault that the writters have her sleeping with her brother in law or to slander her as a person the fact is she is a human being like all of us with feelings and i think a great actress the fact that ppl are getting angry shows that she is playing brooke great ppl shouldent judge her when they really dont her she is just as talanted as the other actors on the show .

    kkl supporters replied

    I agree . She is loved by many

    KIm replied

    The story lines we will all have disagreements on. But to say KKL is not a amazing actress is a down right lie. She is awesome. She is B&B. And what is the big deal why shouldn’t the ppl playing the parts have say. Keep Kickin it KKL YOUR AMAZING…

    Exactly, Jane. If this was baseless, why is so much PR/SPIN effort being devoted to it? & regardless of that, B&B has been pretty bad for a while now due to the fact that it’s either this stupid Hope/Liam/Steffy triangle or the LOGAN SHOW day in/day out. Whole families (Spectras, Marones) have been lost, many great characters & talent have been lost but the Logans continue to remain front & center. ENOUGH is ENOUGH! Maybe if there was some BALANCE to the show & KKL wasn’t being shoved in our faces every day, this wouldn’t be happening.

    Put the blame where it belongs on Brad Bell not Kelly Lang!! Ms. Lang is doing her job and going by the script given to her. She is a great actress and does not deserve all this hate and false accusations by jealous and sick individuals.

    Jane, I agree completely. WHAT is going on with this show that I couldn’t wait watch each day?

    Jeanne replied

    I guess that is your opinion however popular opinion has a very talented KKL front and center, for a reason. I refuse to say anything negative about the other talented actors on the show, so I sincerely hope you are not disappointed if we just stay on topic.

    WOW! all of this over KKL??? I am board and I think the writers could bring in a new story line. But people please… I keep reading some pretty tacky comments about KKL. It is sad that something so silly can get people so angry and fired up. If you really don’t like the direction of the “Brooke Logan show”. Take a real stand and just stop watching. Don’t whine about it. my goodness you people are not children. If something is that stupid prove it and stop bashing KKL like this. It is mean and childish and speaks volumes about who you are as a person! I know I would hate reading ugly comments about my self from people that do not even know me. She is just a actress and you people do not really care one way or the other or you would have stopped tuning in long ago. You just want something to bitch about. I hope the writers will bring in some new blood and think of a new story line soon. It would be nice to introduce some new folks to the show.

    Damage control is one duty in which a public relations department strives to minimize the negative effect caused by an event or series of events.

    Obviously, this situation with the Actress has been negative and slanderous. Simply put, the damage here is obvious- some like it, some don’t. Put yourself in the situation and reflect on how you would feel if you are repeatedly smeared unjustly with no one aiding in your defense- not so nice, is it? Saying the Actress is “Not that good” is a matter of opinion hold on to it.

    Of course he did…YES ENOUGH IS ENOUGH for kKL to rule the rooster!! It is always about KKL’ wellbeing first and screentime,, GAB!! If they want to be taken seriously just start to write for real, instead to make B&B “the Logan show” like Bell wants it, and expect us to like!! Are they serious this character should have been killed off longtime ago imagine to give any input or whatever they wanna call it.. He just makes her look worse! The biggest mistake at b&B they never think about viewers and i m not talking about the Logan fans here!! I guess it is too much to ask for some integrity and professionalism!

    I agree, KKL is a great actress! Look how stirred up she gets everyone! It is a show and that some of the audience feels so strongly that she gets everything means she is a great actress. And I also agree, good bye to all the haters. We will be great without you all! I think KKL is a great actress! And if the show didn’t make these people angry where would we be? Its daytime “DRAMA”, that is exactly what the writers haven given us. Brooke is my favorite character always has been!

    FGS it’s not the Brooke Logan show. Are you paying attention to the other storylines or are you so filled with misplaced hate that you just focus on that one character?

    My advice would be to either fast forward or change the channel if you are that broken up about seeing Brooke Logan on your screen for 5 minutes, 5 days a week. Tada problem solved.

    B&B Fan replied

    Hey Larkin Belle for your info Bradley Bell been writing B&B since the 1st day. He took over as Head Writer in 94. His Father RIP retired then got sick. He was not writing B&B until his death. Google it and you will see.

    KKL is the star of the show! She is an incredible actress and no matter what kind of situations she may get herself into, her fans still root for her! Everybody needs to quit accusing her of everything, it just comes down to pure jealously! Brooke was one of the first four actors that started on the show and the show would never be the same without her!! Brooke is The Bold and the Beautiful! She makes the show! People that are so jealous of her need to keep their big fat mouths shut! Its time for Brooke to rise and shine on the show, the way that she has done so many other times!

Please don’t think your audience isn’t smart we are. Okay? Characters come and go much of the originals have always been a mainstay. With them cancelling others I have watched, I do not want the same to happen here, I do not need another $1.98 Reality show please spare us that. I need the adults to act like adults….

    I don’t have a problem with Lang. I do have a problem with the intermarrying of family members, etc. In some families in the real world this would be the exception. On BOLD it seems to be the rule. It is absurd and although I like the characters enough is enough … Get some fresh blood to have affairs with. You can get lost now figuring out the family relationships.

    Wasn’t it in your September 12, 2o12 Brad Bell interview that she sits in with the writers? I have personally never said she dictates as to what goes on, but she does through out ideas taken from the interview. I am sick of them trying to cover the facts to make certain people look good, but yet won’t address or at least speak up on Hunter Tylo or Jacqueline McInnes Wood. Why all this coming out of defense? If it wasn’t true why worry about it? I am done with the Bold and Beautiful, especially since they have hired two new actors and won’t give Hunter a pay increase but yet want to cut her pay. Now, speak on that! How unfair and unjust is that? Right, no one wants to speak on the truth!

    Well said Mildred! I read the interview in September too. She even thought of the rape story of Brooke too. BUT she doesn’t write? Fine, call it what you want, but she does give her opinion on the story lines, BRILL included. “I can’t wait to work with Don. It’s exciting!” ~KKL

    Mildred….way to go!! B&B has lost to many of it’s great actors for lack of story line…changing how they act…(Caroline)….or for whatever other reason. Evidently….the writers don’t see it. And yes, Debra, I believe there is favoritism.

    Dont know if i quite believe you Mr, Mulcahey. The mass exodus from the show speaks volumes. Also it seems all the stories involve brooke front and center. To me i would assume that she has major control of the story lines and shows direction. Contrary to your portrayal of the actress, there has been many leaked stories of the diva-esque behavior in the past and they continue today. Of course costars will say that everything is hunky dory as they are contractual obligated to do so. The show is heading down the tubes. I rarely watch now as the brooke logan show has taken over and as a loyal fan for years i believe we deserve better. Til then i will tune out.

    The mass exodus speaks volumes indeed. Key Brook supporting roles LOL Stephanie, ridge, Taylor, even Steffy leaving.But Brook staying and having a new baby. Makes you think that one actress is getting better treatment than the others, and they will not take that crap anymore.

    Oh please, I don’t believe a word of this. KKL lies, she herself has said on Twitter that she sits in on all the writers meetings and tells them what she wants to do. She loves herself so much that she tells the writers she wants all the men on the show. She manages to get rid of the most beautiful women on the show, like Hunter Tylo and JMW, also Bridget. She hates to be outshined by these women. Now the show is all HO-Gan tramps. Well I refused to watch a whore like BrookerHO on my screen a half hour each day. Baby Bell’s father has to be turning over in his grave at how Brad Bell has ruined his show. Brad has made this show with the help of KKL into a whore and porn show. What makes KKL think she can write? I can’t stand her, I have no respect for her. She disgusts me.

    KKL Fan replied

    If she ran off Ashley Jones then why would Jones continue to make appearances on the show? Do any of you realize that what you claim doesn’t make any sense? You are one of the many people who decided to abuse twitter and personally attack KKL. That is why her friends are speaking out because of people like you who are spreading your hate because of a soap opera. If you hate her so much turn the TV off and quit letting your hatred for someone you don’t know consume your life. It really is that simple. But instead of believing a respected writer of the show and former co star you choose to fuel your hate and justify it because someone who claims to be an “insider” tells all these rumors and BS to a salon owner who then tells his sister and she tells you all. That doesn’t even make sense but if that is what makes your life were living so be it.

    Agree 100% Connie. This character just never loses, always comes out on top, and is involved in every storyline currently being shown. How is the general public supposed to take that? I don’t believe for a minute that the average person is not at the very least wondering what the hell goes on at B&B for Brooke to always win. Some may be lying about it (SEE ABOVE MAIN STORY) but I’m sure all are wondering whether they admit it or not.

    MICHAEL:

    As the show’s head writer and executive producer, when all the shocking changes came about what went down? Did you have an emergency meeting with your writing team?

    BRAD:

    It was interesting. I met with Katherine Kelly Lang, and the writers and producers, and we all just threw out ideas. The path seemed pretty clear very quickly, and it’s always about playing to your strengths and recognizing what your strengths are in terms of cast, and story, and how we are going to use some of these key characters. It also opened up new avenues for characters that had been back-burnered, or on the sidelines, who I have had great respect for, but we have just not had the chance to give them the amount of airtime that they need and deserve. So in that respect, it’s very exciting.

    Ladiesfan replied

    From what I understand from an interview Bell did with TV Guide Magazine Susan did not know exactly what was going to happen with the scene for her final days. Bell said he offered to keep in her in the loop but she insisted on a separation between her performing from his writing and told him that she would play whatever he wrote for her. If there is some blame to place for that travesty of a last scene for Stephanie Douglas Forrester, it is solely on the writer, not Susan Flannery.

    Mighty funny that none of the other cast was mentioned that they were in the room either. This is not the Brooke or KKL show. There ARE other actors on the show. KKL cannot carry a whole show.

    Hunter tylo was fired for being pregnant in real life. she took the writers to court and won. They were forced to hire her back and never liked it. the were not forced to give Hunter Tylo a good storyline. In fact it seemed to me that writers purposely made Brooks character always win over Taylors and Taylors family to punish Hunter Tylo for taking them to court. This is what has always bugged me about B & B. I dont hate Brook. But I hated how writers used her character to torture Taylor and Taylors family. Makes me sick.

    Reply

    richard replied

    Wrong show!!! Hunter Tylo was fired from Melrose Place AFTER she quit B&B to pursue other roles. Lisa Rinna ended up taking that role and B&B graciously took Hunter Tylo back. So HT left of her own accord and B&B DID NOT fire her. Her lawsuit was against Aaron Spelling. That was NO fault of Brad Bell’s!!!!

    KKL Fan replied

    Lol you may want to recheck your facts. That was Melrose Place and the Spellings, not BandB. Tylo had her reasons for leaving before and has returned. If she had any problems with any co stars I wouldn’t think she would have went back twice.

    That’s ridiculous, however your wording speaks for itself. It sounds like you just want Taylor and her tots. Strange, you could have said the past is Brooke and Taylor, since they are the older generation.

    Honestly, I don’t understand how people can be so selfish as to not just wish JMW well. You go onto that business with hopes of making it big. She has decided for now to persue other options, and I for one am happy for her and wish her well. I think people should want what’s best for the “real person” instead of the “fictitious character” that she plays.

    Where do you get off? Brooke and Taylor are the past. Steffy and liam are the future, get someone else to play he who cares. I guess if everyone leaves the show you would be happy for them and that is great, but if there was no show I am sure with how upset you are you would not wish them all well. I like my tv shows and if they do not do well with the ratings then there is no show. get over yourself ,hope fan

    tru replied

    What will you say if she retires? I never said anything about Taylor ,people are getting old and are leaving the show and that includes Taylor, the young are the future of the show, I speak the truth Brooke should not be the head of the show the young should and that includes Taylor and Eric,it is nice to see them involved in the show but the show can only grow in the future not the past. Stop being RIDICULOUS.

  17. The Brooke Logan Show Blows says:

    More spin doctoring and damage control. Lang, as well as Moss’ own wife used to LIVE on Twitter, bragging constantly about how all of the their great storyline ideas were going to ‘put the show in a league of it’s own’. If Moss’ wife could say things like that, in public forums, can anyone imagine what goes on behind the scenes with storyline direction? Lang said in interviews that she not only asked for a rape storyline, but that she hand picked the actor who played Andy (the rapist) herself! She actually put that in print in an interview. So yeah, I think if the storylines suck, she has her part in it all as well as Bell.The show is just trying to protect her image. First Flannery left, now Tylo and JMW (who somehow ended up in the wrong category for Emmy submissions, as Younger actress, instead of supporting, so that Lang could be in the Supporting category). Since when is Lang supporting cast? Funny that JMW’s fans campaigned for her to be paired with Don Diamont, yet somehow, mysteriously, Lang ended up not only paired with Bill instead of JMW, but Brooke is now having his baby. JMW’s silence on the topic speaks volumes to what has been going on. No wonder Tylo is jumping ship. Even the money isn’t worth it. Former fans have a right to call it out and to tune out, if they want to. And we have a right to say why we are tuning out! Let CBS know, we don’t appreciate the Brooke Logan Show.

    I think it’s very telling how one by one, everyone is leaving. First RM leaves, then SF and now all of mess with HTylo and JMW. I don’t see much hope for the Brooke Logan Show anymore. Bell and KKL have ruined a show that was great once upon a time.

    Seems the super couple “Bridge” did not want competition from new super couple in the making STEAM and especially -Baby STEAM . *(Even though ridge is not currently on the show, which begs the question that KKL did not want any competition while she tried to make a new super couple with DD)

    Thank you Michael, for taking the time to clarify this madness. How ridiculous to even think that a cast member would have any influence on the writers. Perhaps, a few recommendations and constructive criticism, but not to the extent that KKL writes the story lines. Time for all those KKL haters to realize that she is the show. I am very happy at the way the show is heading. Bell, finally decided to make long overdue changes, which will make the show worthwhile watching. Kudos!

    You are right she is what is making the show at it’s worst in history right now, she is not the only actress on this show and she don’t need to be front and center in every story line. There has been times I have liked her story line but most times I can’t stand her but that’s okay because that’s the character she plays but she isn’t the next Stephanie and never will be in the eyes of most fan’s. Yes she has been a big part of the success of this soap but without Stephanie, Ridge, Eric, Taylor, Caroline and all the others along the way over the years she would have never made it this far. Right now fans are sick of the Logan show! and this latest stunt with Bill & then turning to Eric to say the baby is his it’s just too much!

    I smell Damage Control! If this was suppose to be a rumor why the huge turn out of defense for KKL? Makes you wonder if just maybe there’s some amount of truth to it. I read the interviews with Bell and KKL and she did indicate she has more than a fair amount of input on her characters storyline. The fact of the matter is many fans are now tired of the Brooke Logan show and are now tuning out. Killing Steam baby so an old bag like Brooke can keep her Brother in Law’s baby is a sick and twisted. Whether it was KKL idea or Bell, viewers are pissed and will not be silence any longer. We’re losing two of the most dynamic characters of the show, Hunter Tylo and JMW and we’re not pleased!

    The writers/producers have control! Not the actors! Are you an industry insider? How do you know what you’re saying is true? As far as “input” goes, tons of actors have it, including Eric Braeden on Y & R. So what? It doesn’t mean they have final script approval. And now, according to you, KKL decides what happens to her character AND fires other actors? Team Steffy/Taylor have lost their minds! Just because you don’t like “Brooke” a fictional character…don’t take it out on the actress!!!

    Demetra replied

    I totally agree, its ridiculous for Team Steffy/Taylor to say such horrible things. When in fact, how many times has Taylor left the show because she wasn’t happy about the direction her role was taking only to bring her triflng behind back after a faked death. I’m so sick and tired of actors/actresses throwing tantrums when they can’t get more money, when they already make ungodly amounts of money already. I say good riddings to rubbish, Hunter Tylo has never been a good actress to me, she WAS just an extremely beautiful woman who has disfigured herself trying to look years younger when she should have just aged gracefully. All she does is bob her head and overact in all of her scenes. So ready for her to go, hopefully they get rid of her for good this time and don’t allow her to come back. JMW is a great actress however and even though I don’t like her character, I can see how great an actress she is and I think it would be a loss to the show for her to leave. But let Hunter Tylo leave, sick of looking at her joker face and her bobbing head.

    debra replied

    Damage control indeed. I believe viewers are upset about Steffys baby being killed off by the writers, not by Brook being on the show, except its crazy for her to get to keep her baby concieved in adultery while Steffy and liams baby was killed by writers. I do not hate Brook. But I believe the actor does hav a say in the plot. Really I dont care about any of it but I want Steffy and Liam to have their baby back, even if its a twin baby to the poor baby writers killed.

    Doris replied

    Debra, you are exactly right. I cannot tell you how upsetting it is to even think now about the writers killing a baby that they allowed us to fall in love with just to destroy it. Anyone can say that this is “just a soap,” but it becomes more than just something to do when you give honor to it daily by giving it your time, time that you can NEVER get back. The writers took that precious time and slapped us in the face with it. Now to add insult to injury, they are having Brooke have a baby with her sister’s husband. For me, it is not about KKL; it is all about writers that are totally disregarding and disrespecting the precious things with which we honor them: our time, our attention, and our loyalty. Steffy and Liam should have their baby, and we should get what we bought and paid for: A loving couple, STEAM and BABY STEAM.

    debra replied

    Yes. as long as they give Liam and Steffy their baby back. I would allow them to write some crazy stuff.
    “{Steffy awakens with a start, gasps and looks around , wondering where she is}.” Liam says, ” Hi sleepyhead, its about time you woke up, the food is almost ready”. Steffy: ” Food , what? the baby, my baby. ” Liamreplies, “Aere you ok Steffy, what’s wrong? Is something wrong with the baby?” Steffy looks confused, exclaims ” I , uh, I don’t know ” Liam “Are you hurting somewhere, do you have pain, what? what is it. “? Steffy “No. I am not in pain, its just. I , I guess I dreamed that I went to see Thomas, at the beach house, and , and that I was in an accident and lost our baby”. Liam :OMG, Steffy, oh honey, no, No. You have been here sleeping on the couch for hours and have not moved. SEEMS LIKE DAYS in fact. (LOL) “Steffy reaches up and puts her arms around Liam in relief, expressing her JOY. “Oh Liam, Thank God, thank God, I don’t know how I would have gone on without the baby”. Liam, : Oh Steffy, you never have to worry about that. That would be a fate too cruel for anyone to suffer through. We are in Love and we ARE expecting a healthy baby. Yes we are. Now, Lets eat, little mommy before that baby of ours does start complaining.”.{Steffy smiles her big beautiful smile at her husband , Liam, and puts the bad dream behind her, forever, as they enjoy their first BBQ as a married couple.}

    Doris replied

    OMG< Debra. How I wish you were writing for this show. How happy we would be to see our STEAM baby. You think KKL could suggest this at the next writing meeting? She could even tweet it in advance. Maybe then people would get off her back. ROFLMBO Thanks for the laugh!!

    debra replied

    Well actually it would work in Brooks favor too. I mean that it all was a dream. It could change the outcome of Brooks tests results making a healthy loving story about menopause instead of a poor baby conceived in adultery and shame of sleeping with ones own sisters husband. So why not? I think it would get some people off KKL’s back. Propose away Brook. Lets get you on track for a better and new story line :)

Tylo and JMW are leaving for their own reasons, not because of KKL, they are leaving for other reasons……in case you didn’t know JMW has already been in movies and probably has the chance to pursue that.

Neither of them have ever left to go pursue other opportunities only to come crawling back. KKL has taken a sick leave years ago and she took maternity leave when she had her real life babies. Now, go suck on your baby bottles and let the rest of us watch our show in peace.

    I have been watching Bold and the Beautiful for a long time. Cant understand why the writers keep putting KKL character (Brooke) in these situations. Sleeping with most of the male characters does not make her look good. KKL is a wonderful person and plays her character well. Surely you can make her character better, bring her back into the business and give her some new direction in her life but not with her sister husband or daughters husband/boyfriends. The writers have made the viewers angery because the viewers for once they like to see someone to have a normal life (Like ridge and taylor 0r brooke and ridge). We know this is only a show but people take it to heart when there favourite character always lose out. Taylors family has had a hard time through out this show, so it would have been good for one of then to be happy (steffy). So please think about what you write and what your viewers like to see. I hope steffy comes back to the show because i think the show will lose it sparks. Because all it is left with is Brooke family.

    So, ‘saint Steffy’ (daughter of St Taylor) should be happy after every rotten thing she did to steal Liam from Hope (like she previously did with Oliver)… I’m sorry but while I agree that JMW has really ‘grown’ as an actress (TG she ‘lost’ the EYEBROWS!!!), her character was also more interested in $Bill, than Liam… think about it!! Taylor’s daughter is NO SAINT!! And, I’ve watched B&B from Day 1; primarily due to John McCook (as Lance on Y&R) and then KKL arrived as the ‘poor Valley girl’ and history was made… I’m so happy that KKL was FINALLY (as SF said many times) nominated for an Emmy… she deserves it, if only for the ‘beating up’ she’s taken from Taylor’s fan… nuf said; now get a life and watch B&B…

    If you watched from the beginning, then you saw Brooke steal Caroline’s letter to Ridge which kept Ridge and Caroline from reuniting and getting married, at least long enough for Brooke to sink her claws into Ridge. Ridge still chose and married Caroline in the end.
    How can you possibly support Brooke with all she’s done and not support Steffy? What exactly is Steffy guilty of really? Showing Liam he had other options besides marrying Hope. Or maybe she’s guilty of showing Liam how to have fun and enjoy life. Is letting Liam be his own person a crime or should we all have been satisfied with Hope and the rest of the Logan’s using him as a prop for a fashion line or a top catch for Brooke’s daughter. After all nothing less than the best (in this case a Spencer) will due for a Logan goddess, right. PLEASE! SPARE ME!

    Look at the PR brigade making the rounds to try and stop people from saying how sick we are of the Brooke Logan Show. It isn’t working and the ratings will reflect it as soon as Tylo and JMW are gone. Believe that. The last time she left, the show lost over 7 million viewers over a 2 year period. And even the addition of Massimo, Jackie and Nick didn’t stop the slide in numbers. So go ahead, Bell, dig up as many cast offs from canceled soaps as you can muster. Your numbers will continue to slide because no one wants to watch a one woman show.

    KKL is one of the best actresses on daytime tv, she has been there from the beginning and has never left the show!!!! If you’re on a job for 25yrs, you certainly would want some perks, but I feel she in NO way writes the show. Bell realizes what a gem she is and that’s why she’s hung in there long as she has. As far as the rape storyline, I do remember reading that KKL wanted to play that, only bc she wanted to stretch her acting abilitiies and do something different. And if you think about it, having Brooke be raped made sense as she’s been a sexual icon for over 2 decades!!!! As for JMW, she’s a lovely actress and her beauty and age range are prolly very much in demand so why wouldn’t she want to see what else Is out there while she’s still young?? She has been killing this story with her losing the baby and people, WAKE UP, its May Sweeps, of course there has to be high stakes drama!!!!! And who says JMW has to be with B&B for life??? These people are actors and they can choose what roles they want to play and for how long!!!! As for Hunter Tylo, she’s come and gone several times and will never be identified with another role like she’s been as Taylor. Susan Flannery wanted to retire and Ronn Moss was at a crossroads in his life after his car accident!!!! I will say though, that it’s time for Ridge to come home, and I think Grant Alexander(Phillip, GL) would be a perfect Ridge Forrester, if they can’t get him, what about Robert Kelker Kelley!!!! He would sizzle with KKL!!!!

    I am not buying this article at all. I saw and read the interview where Bell said KKL came to the Writer’s meeting and threw ideas around. In another article she said that she was looking forward to Brill. I know what I read. It’s in black and white. Don’t try to backtrack and lie now. The truth is B&B is not liking the backlash they are getting from fans who are tired of the show only revolving around Brooke Logan. KKL may have been there since the show started, but just like in life you have to know when to pass the torch. Her days of trying to play a sex kitten who sleeps with everyone’s man should be over. It’s not believeable. Now whether KKL has backstage influence or not is irrelevant. What is relevant is that fans are tired of the favortism towards her. If the writers are not going to give everyone else meaningful storylines, then the show just needs to be changed to The Brooke Logan Show. All we want is honesty and fairness. There are other talented actors on the show. John McCook, why is he getting dragged into a rehashed storyline with KKL from years ago? Why not give Hunter Tylo a story other than her watching Brooke? Where is Thorne? Windsor Harmon is a gorgeous man. Stop wasting him! Jacqueline MacIness Wood needs to be out of this stupid storyline with Hope and Liam. She is carrying the triangle and it is not fair to her. All I am saying is we know KKL has influence on what happens on the show. Don’t insult your viewers by lying to us or pretty soon you won’t have us. And without viewers no soap will stand. Keep that in mind.

    KKL did nothing to deserve all the disrespect she’s been shown. The only ones responsible for Brooke’s, and every other characters storylines, are the writers.

    Please! Who cares who writes the show, as long as they start to inject some greatness into it! They do need to spread it out a bit. Wheres the Maroney family gone? Whats happening there? Bold used to be better – but we’ll still keep watching – after all theres nothing else on at the time slot Bold has here in Australia!

    kkl is a fine actress, I was never to crazy about ht, I can’t say I will miss her. but you do need some new blood on the show. can you have Bill stay out of Brooks children’s lives. I have not always watched this show and I am not sure for how much longer, there is a lot of room for improvement.

    I cant believe some are actually calling for someone to lose their job because JMW wants to pursue other options and HT is in/out contract negotiations. With friends like this who needs enemies…I say with fans like this who needs these characters. I have not been around long enough to know why all this vitriol is being cast but it is totally out of line. Bashing this real actress because of reel characters is deplorable. I hope people who knows her continue to stand up for her if they believe that she is being attacked…It is the right thing to do.

    Excellent point! I don’t understand why they don’t just wish JMW well. She obviously made the best choice for her. I say good for her, go for it. Maybe she will be back and maybe she won’t but if she doesn’t try she will never know. I am quite sure KKL had nothing to do with HT’s contract negotiations or JMW’s choice to leave. Also, it wouldn’t have been announced all at once if HT had kept quiet and let everyone speak for themselves.

    Well i hope this post is not deleted cuz i had previously answer to that. We Jacqui and Hunter fans are happy they are leaving, i hope for J is permanent not a hiatus they need 2move on to better things and professionals, who take writing seriously not like a playground to frustrate audience and i am not talking about those who see soaps like B&B is portrayed right now.. Im referring to viewers like myself who have watched soaps to spot HONESTLY and OBJECTIVELY why B&B is not even in that list anymore. All i can say i miss William Bell so bad and it breaks my heart it came to this, B&B has been left adrift and all the hard work that made it entertaining and multifaceted once upon a time, it is absent, too many tantrums, ego-battles and dramas are getting in the way.

    That someone of Patrick Mulcahey’s caliber in the industry (which was seconded by Val Jean in her response to his FB message) felt the need to speak says volumes about what “fans” and I use that term loosely as it relates to this sordid mess, actually know about the industry or the writing process of a soap. There are too many closet writers lurking on boards, none of them educated in the industry, who choose to read in their own interpretations of every storyline, interview and press release. It’s absolutely disgusting when people fail to appreciate the medium, let alone the talent, and who conclude reel/real life are one and the same. It’s too bad, because people like this are why the actors in soaps do less and less events for fans, and rightfully so. I wouldn’t want to be subjected to the crazies either. If this sort of nonsense was going on to an A-list or prime time acting professional, the tweets would be reported to police as stalking or criminal harassment. Kudos that the soap pros are willing to put up with it for the sake of their craft. If people don’t like the storyline, they can switch the channel. Surprisingly, there are more fans who love the show then the noisy ones filled with their own self-importance in the world. Who knew? and for god sakes people, learn how to lobby professionally for your favorite effectively or no one will take you seriously. clogging a station and twitter won’t do it for you, sorry. glad someone spoke out.

    Cowbashers might be difficult but you need to open your eyes to all the other message boards on the net. Those that accused Hunter demanding the same salary as Susan and redundant bashings of every kind imaginable, non-stop.
    Everyone’s always innocent when it comes to defending KKL, but those that view message boards certainly see that there are numerous ”cowbasher” boards, who deny they are of the same quality or worse. (WOBB)
    I read the articles online from many years ago. They were put out there, not made up by any fanbase. I saw many tweets and deletions, many admissions and drew my own conclusions. With KKL already being on nearly everyday, I read the tweet where she said she wanted to be on MORE. Really? Like 8 days a week MORE?
    I don’t need anon. posters to influence me. Brooke has been inserted into every SL, has every lead male and every SL revolves around cheap trashy sex. I suppose this is what is meant by ”meaty” SL’s? There hasn’t been the Core 4 for a long time, It’s the CORE ONE.
    Many viewers, especially day one viewers, are simply tired and have outgrown watching the same character dominating every SL doing the same thing for 26 years. Now that one complete fanbase has been wiped out, good luck! Personally, it makes no difference to me if Brooke continues to hog the screen. It won’t be my screen. I proudly tuned out when Steffy lost her baby at the time a menopausal character successfully bred with another brother-in-law. So be it. The final straw was the departure of my two last remaining favorites. So, all will be fine on the Logan show for the ”non-haters”.
    But many other viewers just won’t be invested because the payoff is no longer rewarding or enjoyable. There’s no going back for us now.
    Someone made that decision for us and by observing what we’ve read and seen, we drew our own conclusions. Right or wrong, they work for us.
    Thanks for the opportunity to express my opinion.

    The idiotic way some people are completely disregarding Mr. Mulcahey’s words is astonishing. THIS is the reason they rarely speak out this way, because they KNOW the type of people who start these kinds of rumors and the followers who believe them will never accept the truth and it is a wasted effort.

    CBS should have taken steps to shut down the cowbashers long ago, and their sister site BBUniverse, which is nothing more than Cowbasher Lite. These cyber hate factories may be small in number and seem insignificant, but they are a cancer that spreads in the most insidious way. The hate directed at Ms. Lang is the big fat cancerous tumor, and CBS is the doctor that missed it when it was small enough to remove.

    Not surprising to see some of the worst offenders from these sites pop up in the comments here. Thanks for trying, Mr. Mulcahey, but there is no getting through to these people.

    I’m glad the writers and co stars are standing up for KKL. She has dine nothing to deserve this, and if she was writing the show, why would she say she doesn’t like some of Brookes actions? Or allows her and hope to keep losing.

    The psychotic ratings reached a fever pitch. And enough is enough. I hope he sends Taylor packing. Never to return. As for JMW, her choosing to leave sounds like her decision to pursue films. Why blame KKL?

    I’d send Steffy packing too.

    And if Bell and the writers consult KKL so what. She has been on for 26 years and as said earlier, knows more history the any newer writer.

    As for the Taylor fans. Time to realize that KKL has loads and loads of fans. And those fans are sick and tired of Taylor and her creepy busy body rantings. Yet we dont assault her and go on her twitter and rip her apart.

    Im thinking the Brooke fans who have not been happy with the show are starting to come back. Now that we dont have to listen to the hypocrite any more.

    I have heard more complaints about the writers from b&b then I have personal attacks about the actress herself so where are the comments in regards to this? You can’t seriously tell me that the actors are happy with the story lines on this show and support what the writers are doing to destroy b&b and turn it into the revolting filth it is becoming…
    Why do they need to have Brooke go to bed with every man possible, taking men from her own family? Surely they can think of more interesting story lines than this…if not get a new team of writers and bring some bloody new men into the show and STOP the Brooke’s keep it in the family thing she has going on. Between this and the never ending love triangles nothing else ever happens, we don’t even see them working that much anymore or hear anything about the fashion industry that they all apparently work for!! I liked it more when they weren’t so focused on everyone sleeping around and had the rivalry with the other fashion house. Why cant they have the family stop fighting and stealing each others men and bring in some real competition for Forester Creations and for once have them act like a family and fight together for their business…. only this time have REAL competition, a fashion house that holds its own just as much as Forester. I have never been a fan of Brooke’s but I can honestly say that I’m not much a fan of Taylor’s anymore because the story lines they have had to act are just so damn pathetic; disgusting and down right annoying! This show is going down hill fast, it’s certainly lost what ever it was it used to have and if it continues this way I will not be surprised when it all comes to an end!! GET SOME NEW WRITERS!! Brooke fans or Taylor fans, Hope fans or Steffy fans from all the comments I read the majority are just disappointed with the writers are wanting to see some changes made or they will be turning off to b&b for good. As for the actors who played the roles of Jackie, Nick , Bridgette etc I’d be disappointed and want to leave the show also with the lack of story lines they had received. (even Thorne) the whole damn show revolves around one person I’d be walking out the door to..

    I to have to say from day one I’ve watched B&B and have from the beginning been a Brooke fan! I love her to death, I won’t get on a soap box there are lots of them here, but I have to agree the story line is bothering me as well. It’s the same storyline as before and I think it’s gonna hurt the show. I also have issues with everything negative is a Logan thing. I know every show period has their top and bottom families but I do also feel the Taylor/Steffie do no wrong is old. Just like how Logan’s steal the men husbands whatever but writers did you remember you wrote Steffie was going after a married man Bill? Also that Liam was with Hope first and she stole him away but all you hear is Hope trying to steal Liam/ going after a married man? I’m getting bored with it as well. Back on subject PEOPLE LEAVE KATHERINE ALONE!!!!!!!!! and writers I know you have a job to do and I respect that, one last note—my husband and I watched a memoir to MASH and they made a comment I’ll never forget that when writing and episode they would stop and say we’ve done this or something very similar and they would alter and change it so that they never had a repeat story. No I was not an avid MASH watcher but it caught my attention when they said that. and tell Katherine blow those people off they have nothing better to do than screw with someone elses life they must be pretty unhappy in life. She is GREAT even if I don’t like the storyline I still love her!

    Interesting to some might be a short interview with Ms. Lang in this week’s Soap Opera Digest. If she were writing the show, she must be very unhappy with herself. She answers maybe six questions and in every one she complains about her stories and her character being stagnant and repeating the same dumb things over and over. She sounds pretty unhappy–bordering on bitter. I think the phrase “I would like to do something different” appears eight hundred times. (Forgive me if someone already mentioned this.

    Daytime dramas are most interesting to me as characters change and grow and evole. Sure, they may slip back into old habits and situations, but as time passes, we change. Sadly, those in charge of B&B forget this and continue to play a fine actress (KKL) in a role (Brooke) sometimes so laughable and unpleasant. Instead of stepping up being a matriarch in the tradition of other soap royalty, Brooke continues to act as she did 20 years ago and without any moral compass. A fiftyish woman who pleads such devotion to family and a lifelong love to Ridge would not destroy her own happiness with these silly affairs over and over. Lessons are learned and life deals us new challenges. Show me a Brooke Logan who redeems herself who can be a savior to those who need her who, for God’s sake, actually learned something during those story arcs that earned this drama its Emmys. Give me a Brooke who can finally straighten out her children and their lives, but with some dramatic machinations (she need not bed anyone).

    I do not care who is int ehroom making these decisions regarding story. Just do better with it, please. B&B is not the best overall soap, and I hope it does not win the Emmy this season even though it did Stephanie’s death very well.

    I had not read about these rumors, but I will have to say, only an amazing actress could make us hate the character as much as she does. I really do think the writing has been totally out of character for some of our favorite stars of the show. For Stephanie to turn her back on Taylor to lollygag all over Brook was too far “out there” to be believable. Why did it feel like Stephie was only allowed to be married at Eric’s because of Taylor living there? He is also Stephie’s grandfater, for pete’s sake. I am glad they have abandoned the “ditsy blonde” role for Caroline. In my opinion, it was way over the top.

    People leave jobs for different reasons and under various circumstances every single day. Folks, it’s life and it happens! To blame KKL for any other actor’s decision to leave the show is downright silly and the height of immaturity. Participating in the character assassination of an actress for simply doing her job because some cannot distinguish between KKL and Brooke Logan is sad and quite disturbing. As adults with free will, we make our own decisions in life, and just because someone has a career as an actor and decides to leave, for whatever reason, that is their business and their choice. The fact that some of you have placed these actors and actresses on a pedestal and made a god or goddess out of them, and now that they are leaving the show you feel abandoned, says something is seriously lacking in your lives. But this is YOUR problem and not THEIRS. It’s OK to be sad and a little down that your favorite character(s) is leaving, but to take it to the fixated level that some of you have is so not cool.

    Quite frankly, whether or not KKL has offered input or suggestions for the show is no reason to have an aneurysm. KKL has been with B&B over 25 years and as a veteran actress with the show, I would certainly hope she would have some input. I’m sure other actor and actresses on the show with the same amount of tenure as KKL or less have offered input, as well. I have no doubt that the most popular actor and actresses on most shows have offered or given input about storylines at one time or another. KKL is a veteran and a “real” person; Brooke Logan is the most popular and controversial “character” on the show!

    It’s a soap opera meant SOLELY for entertainment value. It’s not a reason to start campaign assassinations against the actors or rally the troops and start a war because your favorite leaves the show. Believe me, life goes on. Put yourselves in KKL’s shoes and think about how you would feel if a complete stranger or strangers started a campaign assassination against you out of pettiness and vindictiveness. You really ought to think about it!

    As a long time viewer, I wish more than anything that the writers would dig themselves out of this Logan/Forrester circle. There has to be a better story in which to involve these characters. Frankly I am very happy with most of the actors who have left and for one that is leaving soon. Their acting left a lot to be desired. I would personally love to see Brooke either go away, have the baby and give it up or have an abortion. That will end that problem. I would also love to see Hope become involved permanently with Oliver and forget about Liam. I hate that these two girls are constantly fighting over an idiot that can’t make up his mind. It demeans the women. As far as KKL she’s a great actress, but the writers need to do better by her.

    I have watched this show from the beginning as well as Guiding Light and As the World Turns. I have never been a Y&R fan for some reason. I think Brook plays her part well but there is just too much of her! I could understand Stephanie retiring but was devastated to lose Ridge. I absolutely cannot stand Hope or the story line with Liam just like so many others have stated just repeating all of Brooks old story lines except not as a sure of herself assertive woman but instead as a WHINER self entitled and Liam a puppet to his dad or Hope. I too used to think Hunter was beautiful but she has gone way overboard with trying to stay young. I also do not like Donna as she also spends too much time with the plastic surgeon and is way too artficial. I am sorry to see Stephaniie go (and I was also upset with Brook being with her when she passed). I also hate to see Stephie go and so now will have to endure 5 days a week of Hope and Liam. I too can’t understand why Thorn is so under used except I think I read that he does plays. What happened to the story line with Bills Lesbian sister? There are sooooo many tv shows these days playing up the male couples why not explore the other side. I love Bill and was not surprised with the Brook & Bill story line as she has been married or slept with most everyone on the show and it really doesn’t bother me except for I think the concesus of all the previous postings is that a little less Brook would be good. Gosh I am sad that Sally died she added some zing for a not very attractive and not model thin lady she played her part wonderfully! It will be a sad day when Eric finally decides he has had enough. I too miss Jackie and Nick. Liked the story line with Eric and Jackie but do not want Eric with his crazy sister-in-law just because she is more age appropriate. She has a place in the story line just not with Eric she fit nicely with the Logan girls dad. I do not particularlly like either Brook or Taylors sons but the show needs the animosity. I don’t understand why all of a sudden Caroline is mental case. The writers took her too far over the edge too fast. Well I could go on and on but bottom line is that I don’t want to lose my last remaining soap as most of prime time is so crappy! Why do we need so many talent (whether it be singing or dating) shows and my God Gordon Ramsey now to have 3 shows,and there are 2 dating shows! I am also really just a little sick of all the gay being shoved down our throats! Talk shows are another sore subject. The only one I really like (Anderson Cooper) has been cancelled and the rest of them are the same shows over and over again with the same story lines (drugs,dieting, familys that are disfunctional, or bullying), There are not any decent cartoon shows on for our children to watch but there are plenty of over the top nasty adult humor cartoons on in prime time. Thank God Futurama is being cancelled. Why do the brass in Hollywood think Downton Abbey on PBS is so popular? On that show every other word is not foul language or every story line who is sleeping with who and what they are doing in bed. My husband and I were discussing the way that all the shows are the same and movies too with so many movies being remakes and I have come to the conclusion that it is because todays young Hollywood writers have no imaginations as the didn’t get out in the world to play making a covered wagon out of a wagon with a tv tray with a blanket over it or whole cities made out of small cardboard boxes with gravel streets, hills, swimming holes making up a whole town to drive our match box cars on or a green blanket formed to make hills to set up our tiny plastic army men and have battles or all the skates that attached to our shoes that my brothers took apart and made skateboards out of. I have been on my soap box long enough so my final thoughts are that I would hate to see my final soap go so writers please get back in the saddle and be creative instead of the same 6 characters and the same 2 story lines! Good Luck….

    Marie replied

    Regrets to you but KKL herself did an interview with Nelson Branco in 2008 where she clearly said the rape SL was hers. In fact, In the interview, BBell did not want Brooke to be raped, but went with HER idea, anyway. She also said that SHE picked out the actor who played Andy. Please read it for yourself. That goes back 5 years ago. So either she gives untruthful interviewers or they’re true. Which is it?
    Mr. Fairman’s interview last Sept. stated via quote by BBell that KKL was INCLUDED in the emergency meeting with the writing team. John McCook wasn’t, nor was any other long time actor.
    I have not one doubt that her privileges have most certainly become more generous over the years, based on other interviews and tweets I have read and the way the show has evolved to focus on Brooke constantly. Sean Kanan was certainly not allowed to shine. The media was well aware of that and let us draw our own conclusions.
    You can claim they were lies, but there’s more evidence out there to prove they are not lies.

    Ridge did find out about it…after he married Taylor again when she came back from the dead for the 2nd time…the truth about how Stephanie faked a heart attack to get Ridge to remarry Taylor led up to Taylor telling Ridge the truth about her having slept with James. Ridge told Taylor he could have forgiven her for it if she had told him the truth when it happened also if she had NOT walked around for years making herself to be better than him and also how Taylor with Stephanie trashed Brooke for EVERY indiscretion she committed. Ridge told Taylor on that note she was being a HYPOCRITE for years and LEFT her! (This is on You Tube) and then got back together with Brooke. But to this day Taylor DOESNOT ever admit her ADULTERY and HYPOCRISCITY ended her marriage to Ridge she just blames all of it on Brooke!

    I think Katherine Kelly is beautiful and talented and if she were to “write for” the soap, I highly doubt she would ask for the horrendous storyline she is embroiled in now. If people are unhappy with storylines, why bash the actor? Write to those in charge of creative control. I think it was lovely of Ronn and this writer to defend KKL, though any sane person would not believe these lies.

    HT and JMW are good actresses it is just that the storylines they are involved in are reptitious and lousy. BBell is the blame for that not KKL after all it is HIS family that created and produces B/B. By the way years ago CBS was not too pleased about the storylines either but they couldnot intervene because BBell’s family has ownership of the show and Y/R and there was nothing that CBS could or can do!

    That’s another thing that offends viewers who have watched this show since it’s inception. Brooke is no more a veteran than Taylor and Brooke was not an original four cast member, Caroline was. Fans get upset when you try to rewrite the history of a show. This show was always mostly about the Forresters. Brooke was just the caterer’s daughter.

    Brooke was and is a veteran. Taylor is NOT. She married Ridge who is also NOT a Forester. He belonged to another man.

    Cynthia replied

    That, Brenda, is yet another example of lousy writing by this show; allowing Ridge to be another man’s son. After years of Ridge being portrayed as Eric’s protege, the son who inherited all of Eric’s design talent, we have to watch him all of a sudden become illegitimate. And why, to dirty up Stephanie so Brooke could look better after all her scandals and indiscretions. Now,
    people like you can use that as an excuse to discredit Taylor and her children; and who still has Forrester heirs? Brooke, the tramp from the valley as Stephanie used to refer to her, only one word is changed. Just more proof this show is being written for Brooke. Thanks for helping prove my point!

    Darrell replied

    Cynthia I have watched B/B since the beginning and Brooke is a veteran of the show. Caroline was an original character on the show but Joanna Johnson left the show in July of 1990 and then Taylor came in around that time. Joanna came back and left again. Hunter left the show and came back several times over the last 23 years and is leaving once again. The term veteran refers to an actor or actress who has stayed from the inception of a program to the present date without leaving for extended periods of time. In that regard KKL is a veteran along with John Mc Cook.

    Cynthia replied

    Darrel, both Joanna and Hunter were let go from the show. There’s a big difference between that and saying they left on their own. Joanna was killed off and later brought back as a twin. This storyline is what elevated Brooke’s character who had been trying to steal Ridge from Caroline(Joanna’s character at the time). Hunter was also killed off by Sheila Carter, again making a way for Brooke, to finally be with Ridge. Ratings dropped and Hunter was eventually brought back. Again more evidence of the show being written in KKL ‘s favor at the expense of other talented actors on the show. I DON’T HATE KKL. I JUST SEE MORE TALENTED ACTORS ON THE SHOW WHO SHOULD BE GIVEN THEIR TIME TO SHINE AS WELL.The one thing we can agree on is that the show is not in a good place right now.

    Darrell replied

    Last year Joanna Johnson stated in an article for SOD she left the show of her own accord. Ms. Johnson said she oftern wondered if she had stay with B/B playing Caroline what her career may have been. Ms. Johnson stated that she wanted to persue a career as a writer and producer which byw she has had success with producing Hope and Faith and screenplays for a few movies. I remember when Hunter Tylo left the Bold and the Beautiful for the 2nd time. Ms. Tylo was shocked because at that time Taylor and Ridge were happily married with Thomas/Phoebe/Steffy. Brooke at that time was involved with Deacon and hiding Hope’s paternity. It was BBell who decided this because he admitted he didnot know what else to do with HT’s Taylor. To me that showed then as now BBell lacks creativity and imagination when it comes to writing for his female characters and the show in general.

    A GOOD FAITH MESSAGE: My problem is definitely with the writers. You gave us a fantastic STEAM wedding, the promise of a beautiful STEAM baby, and a two day HOT honeymoon. We were so excited…actually happy. It was a stress reliever for many…something good to think about when the REAL world was turning in its negative realm…people bombed at sports events, tornados, political problems, family problems, work stress etc. Every now and then our minds would flash on the awesome and unique wedding and the alluring couple. Yes, Hope was still crying and whining, but there was the belief and hope that she, too, would find that special someone who would REALLY love her. There was hope. In the midst of all this expectation of relief for a time, our hopes were smashed like multiple cars in a mass collision on a race track. In a nanosecond, we got Brooke having her sister’s husband’s baby, a dead STEAM Baby, a grief-stricken young family, Eric being begged to dump Taylor and sacrifice their love for an adulterous affair, Hope on the prowl, and now the promise of the return of the TRIANGLE FROM HELL . REALLY, writers? REALLY? You get paid for this? I know you can do better for the time we spend with you. I still have faith that you will begin to take your awesome career and God-given talents seriously. You have so much power in your hands to do so much good in the world. Stop wasting it, and stop believing it is all about KKL. It’s NOT. You have much bigger problems! Yes, we can change the channel and find something else to do, and many have already. Our promise is that we will too, if you don’t do better soon.

    If her ideas consisted of the affair with Bill Spencer, a man who looks way too good for his age to be paired up with Brooke, and not to mention, ruined Don Diamont’s character, especially after watching him and JMW sizzle on screen all those months; or another illegitimate Logan”heir to the thrown” which, by the way, we’ll never see Brooke raise; or giving the viewers a taste of the beautiful story lines of (Steffy and Liam) and (Taylor and Eric) only to have the rug pulled out from under them so Brooke and Hope can win…AGAIN! If those were her great ideas then I feel sorry for whoever listens to her. It’s like watching a rigged ball game where the refs cheat for the same losing team every time. It’s old and played out.

    Frankly I agree with you on one point these stories do stink…What I would have liked to see would have been the Bill/Katie/Steffy storyline that had so much promise but for some reason BBell pulled when it was starting to take off. Why BBell pulled such a fascinting and hot storyline with B/K/S and put Steffy with Liam and Hope is beyond me. Steffy in my opinion is being wasted along with Hope because Liam just imo is not worth fighting over. Liam is childish and very indescisive to say the least. Liam is no Ridge. As far as Brooke having a baby with Bill it makes NO sense what so ever and Brooke went through a storyline like that before in 2002 when she was pregnant by Deacon and didnot want anyone to find out and married Whip to keep it a secret…and look what happened when Hope was born …everyone found out anyway. So for Brooke to try this again and use Eric as a shield is a retread from 2002 and a waste of time for all the actors involved.

    People wouldn’t bash her if she played roles that were realistic to her age. Not only is she in her 50′s, but she looks a good 10 years older than that. Yet all we see are these airbrushed photo shopped pics of her on every CBS website. The writers made Steffy pregnant at spring and summer time so she would have to hide her awesome body, and for what, so we could watch Brooke revamp her bedroom line? That was prime time for Steffy’s intimates collection showing. Good writers, producers and actors let their true talent shine. They don’t downplay them to make other actresses on the show feel good. Katherine Kelly Lang is well past her prime and Kim Matula is nobody’s babe or goddess no matter how hard you try to make that work. In a recent episode at Thomas’s beach house you tried to make us believe Hope can surf, seriously. Let’s see…who seems more convincing as a surfer? Hope or Steffy? JMW wins again. I don’t have anything against KKL but for goodness sake, BE FAIR AND GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE. HUNTER TYLO has been overlooked for far too long and JACQUI WOOD IS RED CARPET MATERIAL. She brings out the best in all the actors she works with on this show. It’s not her fault she’s Bold and don’t hate her cuz she’s BEAUTIFUL! KKL needs to learn to share before all your best talent leaves the show.

    I completely agree with your assessment, Cynthia. JMW has been required to downplay and stifle herself; she is way too talented to be so used (and IMO, abused) as something as simple as a prop. She is star material and is forced not to shine. I can’t wait to see her stretch herself professionally where she’ll be allowed to spread her wings.

    Even SF was not in every single storyline in her heyday. There was no single star, but there is now, and a lot of people are sick of KKL being front and center all the time. Even all the great airtime that was finally granted to Hunter was just a build-up to prop Brooke.

    TPTB are attempting to portray Brooke as a mother, not the grandmother that she is and that is insulting to the long time viewers. Brooke is continued to be portrayed as a man-magnet, irresistible to every man on the show, with out of control teenage-like hormones, and that simply isn’t realistic. A lot of people her age, that have grown through adulthood watching her, cannot relate to her and are disgusted by her behavior.

    So why would KKL choose to have all these horrible things happen to Brooke? Easy answer. Anything for more airtime. Anything to have her face on the screen.

    It does seem awfully funny to me that when RM, Hunter,and JMW got so much hatred thrown at them, no writers or co-workers came to their defense. And some of the people coming to KKL’s defense now do have a vested interest in doing so. Therefore, IMO, their voices have no credibility. PR Damage Control Soldiers are working overtime. If the rumors are false, why bother trying so hard to smother the flames? Well, IMO, where there’s smoke….well, you know the rest..

    There is no defense for Katherine Kelly Lang. If it were true all actors have input I think Ronn Moss would have opted not to be a Maroney and not to be a patsy for Brooke all those years. Her story lines are what made the fans so critical of his character all those years, or did he not see all the negative comments? I have noticed veteran actors like Susan Flannery having to defer to KKL during interviews and compliment her like she was the head of the show. Fans don’t like that. They always looked to Stephanie as the matriarch of the Forrester family and Brooke as the person who infiltrated that family. No amount of cancer story lines with Brooke as the heroin can change that. I know Susan Flannery would not have wanted to die in Brooke’s arms anymore than JMW enjoys taking a back seat to inferior actresses like Kim Matula; and that’s not opinion, that’s fact. If KKL and Kim Matula are so offended by the backlash, why don’t they do what’s right and stop hogging up the air time with sickening story lines that repulse the majority of viewers.

    For your information, I have been a fan of Brooke’s for years. I used to enjoy her quirkiness in the blooper reels, her fights with Stephanie over the years and empathized with her character on the show during scenes like her rape. I even gave her credit for having the seductive traits to turn Ridge’s head, although I always liked her better with Nick. But ever since Taylor was brought back from the dead, she has been Ridge’s reject and Brooke’s doormat. Need facts…look at the episodes! Another fact, Kim Matula is not seductive like Brooke was and everything she does is overdone, unrealistic or a copy of how Steffy would do it, hence the kiss with Liam recently where she breathes into his mouth the way Steffy always does only Hope doesn’t do it as well. You don’t believe me, look at the episodes. We see all the padding in her clothes on certain days,(KKL too), the heels and lifts in her shoes, the camera angles to make her look more formidable for Steffy. We notice how Brooke and hope can slap Taylor and Steffy respectively and never get slapped back. We all have seen the fountain fight with Taylor and Brooke where Taylor has to sit in front of Ridge and the rest of the family like a wet rat while Brooke stops of at Donna’s office and reappears with a new set of clothes and fresh hairdo. We saw the bird poop on Steffy’s head. We saw Liam bow down at Hope’s feet in his underwear in front of the entire cast. We heard Rick later refer to Hope and the rest of the Logan’s as goddesses. And now we must endure watching Steffy and Taylor lose everything so Brooke and Hope can win, even when they don’t deserve too. THAT’S WHERE MY PROBLEM IS.There is no fairness and balance anymore. Anything goes as long as those two win. It’s not fair. It’s not right. And YOU SAYING IT ISN’T SO DOESN’T MAKE IT ANY LESS TRUE…IT ONLY MAKES YOU DISHONEST.

    Uum, Michael. Susan Flannery said herself that she would play whatever script the writers wrote for her character as long as they gave her time to make a respectful exit. John McCook was so troubled by the storyline, he even went to production to question it and they told him it was a done deal. Please stop misleading viewers. It’s obvious you are a KKL supporter. However, HT and JMW have earned strong levels of support from fans without the show be written in their favor. That says something about their talent. They deserve credit for their abilities and talents and so do other vets like John McCook and Don Diamont as well as Scott Clifton who are all playing roles currently that favor either Brooke or Hope at their own character’s demise. Adam Gregory and Windsor Harmon are also sorely overlooked.

    Susan on how she and Katherine submitted the same episode which both garnered them a nomination when Stephanie died and what she thought of it: “I loved it. Toward the end, someone at the show told me Stephanie was going to die in, like, three weeks and I went up to Brad’s office and said, ‘You’re gonna have Brooke there with her at the end, right? He looked up and gave me this great big grin and said, Yes, that’s who it is.’ I said, ‘Fabulous!’ I think it worked out really well.”

    That’s the biggest load of garbage I ever heard. See John McCook’s interview with SOD shortly after Susan left. Of course Susan would submit that ending. It had to be some of her best acting, pretending to WANT Brooke to take her place AND die in her arms. Susan DESERVES an award for THAT! She was leaving the show, of course those scenes would be popular, because of STEPHANIE, not Brooke. KKL is so selfish, she would mooch off Susan’s work to try to grab herself an award too. Shameful! And by the way, JMW should have been nominated for best supporting actress too. Instead her name was only submitted for best younger actress. and KKL was submitted for best supporting since she she has lost the nomination every time she submitted her name for LEAD actress. Funny how those mix-ups happen, huh? One last thing, actors have gag clauses, (depending on their contracts), sometimes for years after they leave a show, preventing them from telling what’s really going on. So it’s rare to find their true opinion when they are able to give it. AGAIN, SEE THE INTERVIEW WITH JOHN MCCOOK IN HIS OWN WORDS. he was expressly against Stephanie’s last scenes being with Brooke. He told a head producer it wasn’t fair to Stephanie and Eric and their history over the years. As for Susan Flannery, she probably just wanted out at the time, and now she’s hopefully in a happier place in her life. BIG UPS SUSAN, I HOPE YOU WIN!!!

    Nikki replied

    What is wrong with you? Why do you have all this unnecessary hatred against Katherine Kelly Lang? She is an ACTRESS. She is NOT Brooke. And I understand you keep wanting people to read John McCook’s interview and if that was HIS opinion, thats great. However, the quote and link I posted ARE Susan Flannery’s words and opinions. She WANTED it to end with Stephanie and Brooke, just accept it and get over it! You need some serious help if you cannot differ between an actor and a character. You do not know KKL, you do not know JMW, you do not know Susan, you know NOTHING about these people except for things you have read and things you have created in your mind.

    I think on some levels Stephanie dying with Brooke works BECAUSE if you watch the 1st episode on YouTube Stephanie was the first Forrester Brooke met when she was helping her mother Beth cater a party the Forresters were throwing. Brooke then met Eric and later Ridge at the party. Stephanie and Brooke however have had the longest and most tormented relationship on the show not counting all the marriages that all four characters combined. Some of the best episodes of B/B were the Brooke and Stephanie feud. Sometimes in real life stranger things than that have happened.

    Nikki, I don’t have hatred for KKL and because I don’t agree with you is no reason for you to personally attack me. I understand why though. It’s difficult to argue with irrefutable facts. The truth hurts sometimes; and the truth is, it doesn’t matter what Susan Flannery said in ONE interview. The fact is she is no longer on the show. If she were so happy and content like you would have us believe, she most likely would still be there and so would Ronn Moss. Hunter Tylo and JMW probably wouldn’t be leaving as well. I may not know the actors personally,(I doubt you do either), but I do have a little something called COMMON SENSE. You should try it some time. Also, for more facts with Susan in her own words, look at Susan’s Favorites– her favorite episodes from the show. The one of her dying in Brooke’s arms didn’t make Susan’s Top 7. The one with her referring to the Logan b1tch$$ made the list though. It was an episode of Brooke daydreaming about the two Stephanie’s. Also, I HAVE ALREADY STOPPED WATCHING and would appreciate it if you stopped emailing me.

    I think that BBell doesnot CARE about the negative comments people make about his storylines involving Brooke. It seems to me that he just likes to put Brooke into controversal sex storylines to raise the ratings of the show and not care about the damage that some of his stories have done to the character. KKL stated in the past she was not happy about the Deacon storyline because fans turned against Brooke and her plus she didnot like the Thomas storyline and is not currently thrilled about Brooke having slept with Bill her sisters husband either…but what can she really do about it?

    That might be true if those story lines actually raised ratings, but they didn’t. JMW scenes with the wedding and HT and John McCook scenes elevated the show this past time. Viewers tuned out for the whole Brooke and Bill fiasco while Brooke fans complained as they watched.

    Darrell replied

    I donot think that KKL has been all that happy about some of the storylines she has had over the years. The Deacon storyline she was not pleased about because it was something she felt Brooke should not do and the result of it was that fans didnot like it and blamed her for it. Another storyline was the Brooke/Thomas story again KKL stated that she was not too pleasee with it and of course the current Bill storyline because KKL felt crossing these lines are things that she feels Brooke shouldnot do but what can KKL really do? She is under contract to the show and BBell makes the final decision.

    The storylines between Brooke and Thomas and Brooke and Bill were KKL’s ideas. SHE suggested them. If she was so bothered by them, she could refuse to play them. Surely all her years of being a so called veteran along with her input on the writing of the show should allow her some choice in which scripts she excepts. She bragged about being a diva and all her input on the show recently before she received so much backlash she had them deleted. That’s why this website was put up, right? Damage control for KKL?
    Also, IN RESPONSE TO THE PERSON WHO SUGGESTED I STOP WATCHING, I ALREADY HAVE, weeks ago and am encouraging others to do the same?

    I began watching B&B after the cancellation of AMC & OLTL. Unfortunately, the only reasons I watch are Jacqueline MacInness Wood & Hunter Tylo. In all honesty, I can’t stand the live triangle of Liam/Hope/Steffy or the character of Brooke and can’t understand why the show focuses so much in the Logan women. The show would be so much better if Hope would stop defining herself by whether or not she is with Liam. Brooke also defines herself by what man she is with. I’m afraid I’m done after JMW & HT leave. All Logan all the time doesn’t interest me.

    I totally agree Gillian. I’ve already stopped watching, since before Steffy’s bike accident aired. I used to watch to support JMW and HT when I thought the writing was getting better; but as usual, that was just a trick to keep us watching. I can’t, in good conscious continue to watch them use JMW to boost their ratings so they can give us this crap with Brooke and Hope without the show flatlining. That’s not supporting Jacqueline or Hunter at this point, it’s only helping the show. I don’t want to do that because right now the show sucks and has no hope of changing as long as viewers continue to tune in. Bell could care less about viewers complaining. If he was going to do the right thing, he would have done it by now. The best way to get people like that to change is to hit them where it hurts, in their wallets! You do that by TUNING OUT AND ENCOURAGING OTHERS TO CHANGE THE CHANNEL TOO!

    Absolutely horrified… Steffy loses her baby and yet Brooke gets to keep hers to her brother in law no less. YUK! Who thinks of this garbage?
    As for Hope isn’t she proving to be a chip off the old block. Steffy is mourning the death of her child and all Hope is concerned about is moving in on Liam! Hope well and truly is a selfish, self absorbed, entitled, spoilt, little brat. I’ve lost all respect for her moving in on Liam like this. Its pathetic!
    If this show didn’t have Rick and Maya at the moment there would be no reason to watch.

    Isn’t Hope doing what Steffy did to her when Hope was dating and broke off with him because she saw him kissing Steffy and broke their engagment? Prior to that Steffy was doing EVERYTHING she could to get Liam and then went with him to Aspen and married him while Hope was trapped in the gondola watching?- “Alls fair in love and War” as Taylor told Brooke when Brooke objected to Steffy interfering with Hopes relationship with Liam to begin with?

    Two wrongs don’t make a right! That’s what so wrong with soap operas today. There is always controversy pitting people against each other. Soaps used to be like reading a good novel. You could depend on what you saw a month ago or years ago to be true. Now you can’t even count on what you saw last week. They yank the rug out just to see viewers go at it. All viewers should be upset over that. Whenever people are arguing over immorality, adultery and sin and trying to justify those things…something is terribly wrong, not only with this soap but with society. It may be just a soap but real people watch including impressionable younger male and female viewers who take this stuff to heart. I will not support a show that promotes sinfulness always winning in the end.

    I THINK THAT THE ROLE OF BROOK IS DISGUSTING. .IT MAKES HER LOOK LIKE THE WORST FEMALE IMAGINABLE. I KNOW ITS JUST ACTING, BUT SHE NEEDS TO LOOSE THE BABY INSTEAD OF THE RIDICULOUS PLOT SHE TRIED ON ERIC,,,I LOVE THE SHOW, AND SO DOES MY 16 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER BUT THIS HAS GONE TOO FAR,,,SHE PUTS DUMB BLOND ON THE MAP

    Could you write at how the backlash against KKL got so nasty?
    It is my belief that Mr. Bell and the writing team right misogynistic triangles depicting women as desperate bimbos. The overarching storyline encourages an environment of animosity. There is no balance to the show resulting in one fan base being perceived as favored hence the renaming of B&B as “The Logan Show”. I think that it is not only important to talk about the symptom (the personal attacks on KKL via social media), but that it is important to look at the disease. (what has provoked so many people). Many soaps go back and forth, there is a balance. In my opinion Mr. Bell loves the drama of two clashing fan bases (it mirrors kkl/ht), and he has stoked the fire with the current storyline and his lack to the public backlash- which he himself ignited. Mr. Bell and the writers should be held accountable for creating such a negative envirnoment. Why isn’t he speaking out? Mr. Bell is certainly front and center for praise.

    This backlash got so nasty for exactly the reason you stated Gemma. Because Bell won’t stand and take his place in this whole mess. Because Bell has decided it’s ok to send out his minions in DEFENSE of KKL instead of in EXPLANATION of what is going on with his writing team and his stars. He has chosen to allow the one-sided writing in which KKL’s Brooke & her Logan family alway win in the end but is content to hide behind the scenes when all hell breaks lose.

    And another thing, having sites like these who put the issue out there but only allow an unequal & baised amount of comments doesn’t help the situation. Sites like these are the worst disservice to KKL b/c they make it look like she has something to hide by alienating others.

    First, excuse my spelling of accepts in my previous post. Now to address your question, according to my sources which have been reliable in the past, the most recent KKL backlash began in response to TWEETS KKL SENT OUT BRAGGING ABOUT BEING A DIVA CONCERNING THE CURRENT STORY LINES. We all know what the current story lines are, BROOKE HAVING SEX WITH BILL AND NOW TAKING ERIC FROM TAYLOR and HOPE GETTING LIAM BACK AS THE RESULT OF STEFFY MISCARRYING HER BABY OVER MOTHER’S DAY WEEKEND no less. Twitter lit up in outrage over Katherine Kelly Lang’s tweets which were immediately taken down but not before being copied and retweeted by more savvy twitter followers. The backlash was so swift and massive that this site was put up to help defend her. Viewers need to remember also that what you see on screen is actually taped approximately a month in advance, so KKL was well aware of what she was saying in those tweets.

    I have watched the Bold and the Beautiful since day one. Iam also a fan of KKL but the issue at hand right now is that the writing for the show is and has been lousy for during the last ten years. I have gone on other message boards in the past and stated such. There have been so many different directions that BBell could have taken the characters and the show and come out on top with high ratings and good reveiws. But it seems that BBell has been in a rut and relies on not storylines but sensationalism to create drama and interest. When it comes around to writing characters for the show he puts them in a tight corner and doesnot leave them any room to realsiticly change and grow. For the first part of the decade the show was fascinating and you could not help but watch but for the last decade BBell has leaned to heavily on a past formula that no longer works. What we have is a show that has too many love triangles incestous storylines where father/brother/mother/sisters and step siblings have all slept with one another and have no loyality to one another and continue to fight it out at all costs. One thing that has irked me is that there are other characters that BBell just didnot bother to write stories for becuase he was stuck on this line of story telling. As far as Brooke’s character is concerned I have felt a great deal of the time turned off as how BBell has written her. Brooke fell into the catagory as being a slut while Taylor was put into the catagory as a saint. It was from there that has how all of this controversy has been created. The character of Brooke crossed so many lines that one should NOT cross…she married Eric/Ridge/ James/Thorne and Nick(Ridge’s half-brother)then slept with her daughter husband Deacon (knowing he was no good- for her daughter and bore his child Hope)then went on to later having sex with her younger daughters boyfriend at a high school prom party thinking he was her husband in disguise. Later it was the issue of Thomas her stepson and the will they or did they issue with them? And now Brooke sleeps with her sisters Katie’s Bill (after he knowingly called her and their other sister Donna tramps and treated her daughter Hope so poorly saying she was not good enough for his whimp of a son and becoming pregnant?) and on the other end of the spectrum Taylor slept with and married Eric/Ridge/ James/Thorne/Nick/Rick (Brooke and Eric’s son)and Stephen Brooke’s father but is never called out on her indiscretions? Also the other issue at hand is how he writes the females on the show… Ihave watched Brooke/Taylor/Macy over the years have emotional meltdowns and descend into alcoholism because the men they wanted chose the other women the fought wiith instead of them. The guys dont come across any better all the above mentioned have had more sex on the brain than logic.Right now the show is staggering because BBell is putting so much emphasis on the Hope/Liam/Steffy triangle and truth be told the triangle is not happening…it is killing and wasting the talents of all three actors involved in but BBell thinks it is the way to go and it is NOT. As far as the past stories involving KKL/RM/SF/HT/JM/JW all of these actors and actresses have given it there all over the years with storylines I am quite sure they were not happy with. KKL in particular seems to have always had the poorest of stories involving the triangle genre but can act and in the past gave performance that she should have gotten Emmy recoginiton for that other actresses on past shows walked away with awards for. I cannot figure why there has been this explosion of hate against KKL because she got an Emmy award nomination. Her contribution to the show like it or not cannot be denied. As far as bad behavior behind the scenes is concerned I am quite sure that ALL the above mentioned actor and actresses have not ALWAYS behaved admiribly during the years so why should just one performer be singled out. The reasons why RM/SF/HT/JMW are leaving is best known only to them. But what I have read is this SF stated for the last 5 years or more that she wanted to retire…so she did. RM stated that he had a serious car accident and questioned what his future should be stating that he had issues with taking a big pay cut and how BBell has put so much emphasis on the H/L/S triangle when the vetrans of the show still have more stories that could be told. HT is leaving once again as she has in the past but it seems to be about money also and JMW wants to take a break and see what she can persue in prime time and movies (which she should because if the chance is there why not see where it can go) so putting all the blame on KKL about the storylines and actors and actresses leaving the show seems unwarranted. Currently I donot like Brookes storyline but I like other people have a choice watch it or tune out. What needs to be done is that BBell needs to seriously look at the storylines on the show and come up with some fresh new ideas to keep it moving.

    The one storyline that I have had a problem with and several of my co-workers and friends are tired of is the L/H/S storyline. It is just tiresome and NOT working. There is just no story there. It is just about 2 priviledged and rich girls fighting over an indecesive whimp. Stephanie back in 2012 before she had a relapse of cancer told Brooke and Taylor that Hope and Steffy are young intelligent and have their whole lives in front of them and are fighting over a boy was ridiculous…and Stephanie was RIGHT because Liam is NOT worth it! Also this storyline has wasted the talents of both JMW and KM!

    And by the way Darrel, if you were a talented actress like Jacqueline MacInnes Wood or Hunter Tylo and were constantly given these crappy story lines you’d leave too. Who wants to be on the losing end all the time even when your work is exceptional? Nobody! LOVE HER OR HATE HER, STEFFY KEEPS THE VIEWERS TUNING IN . She’s young and in her prime, unlike KKL who’s had her turn and then some and JMW is a far superior actress than Kim Matula. So if her, (JMW’s) talents aren’t being appreciated on the show, I think she should leave. I applaud her and Hunter Tylo for pursuing other goals. Other vets like John McCook and Don Diamont should consider doing the same thing. Adam Gregory’s talents are being wasted as well…..Windsor Harmon, Texas Battle, Jennifer Gareis, Scott Cifton, (his best work has been with Steffy)….need I go on?

    What i have stated is this basically…the storylines on the show are lousy and repittious. If they are so then that means ALL the actors and actresses on the show suffer. I feel that the whole cast is very talented…and if the opportunity is there for them to go on to bigger and better things then there’s no problem with that. Nobody who has the option to do other things that an enhance their careers or lives should stay where they feel they are not getting the chance to shine. I have stated for years on other message boards that BBell is in a rut and instead of utilizing the whole cast in creative and new directions that can keep veiwers tuning in and the ratings high BBell just recycles the same stories over and over.

    How did this sight end up doing damage control for Bold and the Beautiful. Why don’t you write a piece of journalism that addresses bashing and the term “mean girl mentality” . If you do you may see who the instigator of all the drama, and I don’t mean in a good way, is. It’s Mr. Bell himself. Something is going on at B&B and instead of glossing over it could you investigate the truth. We know B&B PR machine is in overdrive and quite frankly they talk out of both sides of their mouth so much nobody believes them anymore. Also, what’s up with the misogynistic writing? That too could be an article? MF please stop doing their PR and be the journalist I thought you were.
