More shake-ups at The Bold and the Beautiful with the news today from Hunter Tylo (Taylor) herself that her last airdate and episode will air on July 3rd! This came on the heels of her on-screen daughter, Jacqueline MacInnes Woods (Steffy) decision to temporarily exit the series earlier this week.
Seems Tylo states in a personal message to her fans, that she is now off-contract with the series, as of four weeks ago. So is the end for Tylo? Or, will things be rectified?
Tylo posted a special message in her Hunter Tylo Forum to subscribers on her website stating: “I am getting bombarded with questions to quell rumors, and here in my forum, I will clarify that Jacqui and I are (coincidentally) off our contracts. I have been very successful outside of B&B and I have no doubt she will be too. And more so, because she is free and single to travel all over the world.
For me, contract talks ended four weeks ago. I am moving forward and opening back up to the thousands of acting roles available, writing and pursuing my skin care line. My friends and B&B fans will be sorely missed. But don’t worry! I’ll keep you posted of my every new adventure.”
In regards to Jacqueline MacInnes Wood status with the show a B&B rep informed On-Air On-Soaps yesterday “Jacqueline MacInnes Wood is taking a short break, as she has done in the past, from B&B. She remains as the character of “Steffy Forrester” and is continuing to tape, currently with episodes airing through July of 2013 and then beyond.”
So B&B fans worldwide, what do you think of the news of the departures of Tylo and MacInnes Wood? Share your thoughts!
