    I don’t think you’ll get your wish, su0000.

    Chaz will most likely stay with CBS. CBS is well known for it’s crossovers. Chaz will probably turn up at Y&R and The Talk. Chaz could even become a co-host of The Talk. I don’t think being transgender precludes Chaz from that position, plus, I don’t think Chaz’ transition is complete which means Chaz has the same genitalia as the other co-hosts unless Sarah Gibert has a secret we don’t know about.

    And What would Sara Gilbert have anything to do with Chaz? Sara Gilbert is not in a relationship with Chaz Bono. Sara is married to Linda Perry

    Sara Gilbert is gay not transgender. Sara Gilbert has had a couple children. She is married to Linda Perry who is also gay, but neither one of them is trans.

    B&B is turning into a freak-show with Chaz Bono, Bruce Jenner and turning Maya into one. With all the stunt casting lately B&B is picking up where MAB’s Y&R left off.

    Here we go again! @Blake show some respect please!! And who she is Caitlyn not Bruce ! NO ONE is forcing you to watch something. If you are that uncomfortable watching something WE ARE ALL more than happy to have you stop watching a show than call it a “Freak – show” .

    Amen!! I couldn’t agree more.

    I agree Blake, and if anyone doesn’t like my opinion too bad. I don’t like it either when people who mutilate their bodies to be someone they weren’t created to be turn up on a soap I love. Maya was destroyed because Brad Bell wanted to high-five the LGBT community. Destroyed! He took a beautiful, independent, outspoken woman who brought herself from being homeless to a fashion model, and killed her to impress freaks. Maya had a daughter. One that I remember her saying she was pregnant with, but because Maya is now a man, we are suppose to pretend that daughter was never hers. Instead of Raya fans enjoying a beautiful love story, wedding and her carrying she and Rick’s baby, we got Rick embracing marriage to a man, his SIL having to carry his baby, and all the sick, disturbing feelings that go along with watching that play out. Chastity coming on to play a minister is a joke. Bell is so sick in the mind, I see fans all over social media sites daily talking about giving up viewing this show if the freaky behavior of those characters do not end.

    Yo, Jimmy! We posted several hours apart, but showed up on the board at the same time. A few posters lashed out at me for making such suggestions you’re referring to. I guess they may have “changed” their minds.

    Its so funny now and kind of ironic, isnt it…you would mention Chaz and how they lashed out…and now here he is.

    I get the sense Chaz is a beautiful person inside and out. It would be great if DWTS had another all-star season and Chaz competed again after his weight loss.

    Although I didn’t care for the story-line with Maya & Rick I am glad Chaz is coming on. I have always liked him. He is such a gentle and kind guy it would be hard to find a problem with him. Welcome Chaz to B&B.

    Who cares Chasity slash Chaz, the acting will be terrible. I would rather watch the Talk, Dr Phil and The Chew. Cancel all the soaps, replace them with cooking shows and more talk shows.

    What a miserable person you are. If you hate all soaps, turn them off. Watch your talk & cooking shows. Nobody is stopping you but I guess misery does like company. I can’t help but wonder why your even on the soap comment board, since you hate them all so much. I am glad you watch Dr. Phil.

    Uh, Emma…here’s an idea: Why don’t you go and host a cooking show and/or talk show of your own…and S-T-O-P being so hateful?!?!?!?!?! Just saying……….

    Oh, and Nikki…LOVE YOU!!!!! P-e-a-c-e.

    Jim Preston replied

    Yet another inane and worthless (did I mention ignorant) response from this so-called “Emma” who is obviously deranged ~
    Whoever monitors this page, can’t you please block this moron from posting her or his hateful comments that are obviously stated only to upset the viewers who enjoy the existing soaps?

    I hope this is relevant to story and isn’t just a stunt casting to take away attention from the poor state the show is in.

    I know what you mean, Brett. The internet is loaded with posters stating B&B isn’t exciting, but it’s transparent that all these transgender visits are a statement that B&B is transitioning.
