    Glory be! Best news I’ve heard regarding B&B in a long time. No offense to the actress, but the bloody character of Hope Logan has played a large part in what I feel has become the destruction of B&B. The non-stop focus on Hope and Brooke (KKL) has just been too much these past few years. They lost me as a viewer because of it.

    I am just so tired of the back and forth between Liam and Wyatt it’s getting very very old

    This role could so easily be recast. There must be at least 25 million blonde haired 25 year old actresses looking for a job in L.A.

    Hopefully one of them can act.

    salliern1 replied

    hallelujah!!! I am sure she is a nice lady in person, but she just cant act worth crap. Good luck to her on getting another role. We will probably see her flipping burgers on Sunset in 2 years given her acting ability. I mean no offense to those who are cooks, it is a great career. Just saying she cant act worth dodo.

    TM replied

    I agree they need to be together already!! The writers and screenplay writers are taking up too much time with Ariel views, ridiculous! Not replacing Hope is an epic fail! I am not surprised that Hope is moving on, she is a great actor and you can see her an Liam have a repore together, i am not mad a Wyatt but I can’t stand his face expressions it just doesn’t seem to come naturally to him. And Ivy, star stuck, love struck is aweful! I am really close to not watching this show anymore, I am down to taping it now, I used to plan my day around it LOL that is awefiul I know!! LOL. I used to watch Days many years ago, like 15 and have not watched it since, I am really close to that now with this show. I have to add Caroline walking in heels is SO over the top, if she can’t walk/ run in them then give her a lower heel. She is so fake acting except some times with Rick/ The NEW WRITERS ARE ABOUT TO LOSE ME!!!

    I loved Kim she inspired so many people I was such a big fan of her always will
    Thank you Kim I will miss you your so talented :-)

    if KKL & KM leave the show (B&B) that will be the best bday gift for this coming 13 of Nov.14 i put up with KKL face for 26 years on my screen in a daily basis and KM for 5 years as well please, bring KM (karla mosley) with you! Maya is a replacement of Hope as a huge pest in the show!KKL,KM and another KM (karla mosley) is a huge distraction hypocrite Witch whore character in B&B history!! please bring back Steffy,Thomas & Taylor and if possible please bring back from the dead Queen Stefanie even if recast to make B&B alive again…B&B needs a real Forrester family to run FC.

    Mark Y replied

    Yeah, bring back a mom and her two kids for all kinds of story!

    Becky replied

    It doesn’t bother me at all that she’s leaving, except that KKL is sure to get an even bigger part now (who thought it was possible?)!

    Becky replied

    I didn’t mean to dis the actress. She’s a beautiful young woman. I’m just tired of the whole triangle storylines. Now we’re repeating the pregnancy interrupting true love storyline. I guess Liam deserves it though!

    sam replied

    you’ve got to be kidding me…bring back Taylor? She doesn’t need to be on the show…she has no storyline…This show will be cancelled if KKL leaves.

    mecorine replied

    I agree.

    PatrickSABRINA_CARLYFranco replied

    I THINK KIMBERLY MATULA WILL RETURN ONE DAY.
    Did you see,it adage,”Will not be re-casting KM” and i hope the ORIGINAL hope logan,kimberly matula wil return one day. She is fabulous.and many jealous of her want her gone,but i m sure one day she will return.

    For now,i will watch . But if KKL and Kimberly Matula,leave for good i am no longer watching same as many others.Ratings will fall,once again,if both are going to leave for good.I hope both will not and return one day.

    Joyce replied

    Please do not bring back Steffy, and Taylor, they are dilllusional, living in a dream world !! Please don’t do it!! Keep them away in Paris!

    lalee replied

    Who is Karla Mosley ?

    Deb replied

    I happen to have loved watching Kimberly Matula. I am very sorry to see her leave. She and her story line is one of the reasons I watch the show. I will greatly miss her sweetness.

    Brooke & Hope make B&B worth watching

    TM replied

    agree and hope and laim have to make it

    Sue Davis replied

    I feel the same way..,They are the only reason I watch.. Not sure what I’ll do after Kim Matula is gone.. To me she is a breath of fresh air after a long hard day of work.. Hate she is leaving!

    shelby replied

    I agree. I’m upset Kim Matula is gone, and KKL is not here until a few weeks, I’m sorry I’m a 24 year old who thinks since they took away the hope story line, they lost me daily. I’m sorry but us younger generation can understand the love triangles!!!!This Maya and Rick show sucks!!!!!

    Denise replied

    This will be a big loss. I hope they look for someone else to replace her. No one can quite fill her shoes, but writing her off and losing another baby will be terrible. If the show is going to have women get pregnant don’t keep having them miscarry.

    Reply

    TM replied

    It needs to be Liams beby, they find out the timing was off oOR she loses the baby when Quin pushes her down and it open the door to go back to Liam!

    DONNZ replied

    not going to be the same with hope and brook off the show

    Zee714 replied

    Yes it won’t be the same with out hope, couldn’t care less if Wyuck and QUINNZILLA leaves !!!!! She definitely will be missed

    Cass replied

    If Hope is leaving the show, her crazy mother in law will probably have something to do with how she exists the show. I’m sad because she is now pregnant and it has not been proven who the father really is. Her and Liam really love each other and it will be just awful if they let her die off or maybe she’ll come up missing. I can’t see her just leaving Wyatt and never return. I don’t know, just guessing at some reasons they may have her leave the show. Anyway, good luck to Kim in her career. She’ll be missed for sure, the show won’t be the same without her in it.

    Kim Matula REALLY lives her role. No fake tears or screeching here. I just wish she and Liam FI-NALLY had their happy ending here. Maybe the actress really IS pregnant and she needs to rest. I do hope she returns. I enjoyed her work. Good luck!

    TM replied

    ally from biggest loser was hope and I must say I hated the change but this hope was fantastic!! Allie is doing very well for herself but if Hope and Liam don’t get back together I am SO done! Wyatt has no acting ability in facial expression and Ivy has no ability but to be love struck! Letting one actress go with true talent really? The new Ridge has not held up his part but that is not why I watch…. Hope and Liam make the show! Brooke and Ridge getting back together is always a great suggestion and Katie and Bill working things out. you can create drama by Caroline being pregnant with Rick’s baby and that gets them back together and Brooke and Ridge move to Paris and get married! Ivy gets with Wyatt and Quin is the outcast, she goes to jail for murdering the diamond guy! Liam goes and looks at he puppies at the shelter and Hope has a photo shoot there, she confesses her love for him and gets hit by a man on a scooter and she loses the baby, liam takes her to the hospital and finds out she was further along than they thought and it was Liam ‘s baby all along, They finallly get married and have twins, but during one break up she has sex with wyatt , the twins, as they are brothers, one has Liam ‘s DNA and the other has Wyatt’s!

    i am really gonna miss Kim , i love her , she is so cute , i love her , why is she leaving , this is Bul* Sh*t , all the good actors/actresses are leaving or are already gone , BELL , what are you thinking , i’m getting to the point i dont wanna watch anymore

    Reply

    lalee replied

    They are probly leaving for the same reasons we all grip about,boring story lines,it’s boring to watch everyday but it must be twice as boring to read the same lines over and over. B&B thinks it’s so great because they go to Europe for shows but are they really there or are we fed tourists sites with back ground pictures they stand in front of? Like Hope waiting for Liam near the Eiffle Tower,she was behind a hedge for crying out loud,!

    Gloria replied

    I agree!! I was beginning not to watch it all the time even after 25 years! I loved her for a long time and she is a good actress, it was the storyline that was getting too old, making me feel almost stupid for watching!!

    JJ replied

    I really enjoy Kim as an actress. She is beautiful and has always had a wonderful message. I can’t tell you how disappointed I was that the storyline took her to Wyatt. They had always showed her as NOT being like her mother and how important a message that was, and then they had her going back and forth between Liam and Wyatt. She deserved to be with Liam….someone on the show could at least be happily married.

    Bea Thomas replied

    I would not watch if they took KKL off. She has been the real reason I have watched as long as I have. Since inception of the show in “87. I like Kim, but I have become very disillusioned with the show, everytime we think Hope and Liam will be together, Wyatt enters the pictured and mess things up. I do not like the character, Wyatt, nor his mother Quinn.

    I dislike! I wanted her and Liam to finally get together like they should of from the beginning! I will miss her.

    Let’s bring Kim Matula back to the Bold Fold! She is definitely the Hope Logan we all love on the day time soap opera. I realize Kim wants to explore her opportunities but she knows the people and she can hold her own when it comes to her character and the men. Kim needs to return so she can put Quinn in a clinic where she belongs. Quin n should pay for what she did when Hope fell down the stairs. Also Liam and Hope nesds to get married once and for all!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I stopped watching when she married Wyatt. Only reason i heard about this was due to following the soups digest magazine page that showed it. It will b sad to see her go, but at the same time curious how they plan to write her,and the baby she is carrying , out. And when she leaves,if its tragic and she goes missing or something else that’s even more sad ,how will Liam react ,since he is with Ivy ….

    Zee714 replied

    Agree 1000% ! If Bell would’ve put her with LIAM she probably wouldn’t of left the show…. STUPID BELL, WHAT HAVE YOU TO THE STAR CROSSED LOVER’S-SOULMATES

    Jessie replied

    Actually the actress admitted that she thinks Hope shoukd be witg Wyatt. She’s probably leaving because of the poor writing.

    I love liam with Steffy. Hope was too rigid and wishwashy. Tbat is why she never got a happy ending with Liam.

    I agree the role likely will be recast. Still, I am tired of Hope Logan stories. The endless triangle really wore me down and turned me off to B&B.

    Niwana jenkins replied

    I agree completely! I am so sick of how the show makes Hope and Brook out to be so irresistible to men, it’s about time to put us out of our misery with the Logan women!

  8. CSexton says:

    Well there goes another B&B actor. While Hope hasn’t been my fav on the show. when she is with Wyatt I like her better. Can’t stand “Lope” that should’ve ended long ago. But my point is .
    When is Mr. Bell going to realize he is losing all his good actors? I can remember back when his mom&dad was running the shows and they kept ALL the actors. Then BBell gets his hands on the businesses and it all falls apart. Can’t keep the good actors. This should tell him something. WAKE UP OPEN YOU’R EYES. I don’t see these soaps making it another 2yrs..

    Sheikwil replied

    Well I hate Wyatt and Quinn. So if her leaving means those two will be off the show, maybe it will be more bearable. Wyatt is just like crazy Azz Quinn. It will show up soon. It already started today, with that looser taking up for her when she was sneaking around doing Hope Dr. appointment. I hope, that Hope next to last Sven will be her shooting both Wyatt and Quinn on the show.

    Maybe Hope will exit by going to Italy to live with, raise her child with along with work for her mother at a Forester Creations there. Then maybe Hope will come back to B&B when her child is a adult. They make children grow up extremely fast on soaps. And last but not least ; I don’t want to see Quinn kill Hope off. .Hope Quinn will flip out & self destruct leaving Wyatt to be his father Bill’s president at Spencer Publications & Liam will move over seas somewhere to work for a Spencer Publications there or another big business leaving Ivy to hook up with someone else that’s a new handsome very powerful character.

    This would be crazy maybe she moves to paris and character Hope and steffy become real close friends. i know i may get hammered for saying this i just hope they have Hope lose her baby and she leaves because she just wants to get away from Wyatt and Liam and moves to Paris to work with Steffy and forrester creations in Paris who knows .

    Without crazy the show gets boring.Crazy makes soaps more interesting & helps keep the viewers focused so they keep tuning in to view B&B again.

    I just think the story should go on about Hope’s future baby. The fans should know who the real father is and what Hope’s plans in the future might be. Maybe divorce Wyatt and come back on down the road. Who knows maybe her and Liam and the kid might finally have a new beginning together once again. Hopefully Liam is the child’s father.

    totally sucks though, hate when they leave and characters change because it changes the show so much in so many ways. You get used to the certain people being on there and playing the part, they become the show as much as we as fans get pulled in to watch it on a daily basis year after year. I don’t think anyone should ever be on a soap opera if they don’t intend on making it a career and putting a lot of time into it. I do wish her well on whatever it is she is going to do. The sad part is they leave and then you flip through the channels one day when our soaps aren’t on and you see them playing on the other soaps and you think…..really???

    Exactly what I was thinking. These things always happen at the worst times. Last year on Y&R when Michael Muhney and Billy Miller left, they were right in the middle of Delia’s death story. Now, Hope is pregnant, and I doubt she’ll be staying for another 9 months to wrap up her story, so she’ll either have a miscarriage and leave L.A. (a recycled story from when Steffy left) or remain pregnant and move to Italy to get the baby way from Quinn. That’s just my thoughts.

    Well, at least with Kim, it can’t be said that Hope doesn’t have story! She’s always front and center, like Brooke used to be. Maybe she doesn’t like the story either and wanted a change, but when Brad refused to think outside of his narrow minded, kiddie squad, love-triangle box, she walked. I would too if I was in her position. The show needs to go back to its roots in fashion and the industry. Bring back the Marones and maybe even Spectra Fashions. Forget about all this nonsense love triangle garbage and let couples actually be together and be happy. But sadly now we’re going to have to deal with Maya/Rick/Caroline part 29475 and I’m already over it.

    Agreed, 100%. Kim is a great actress but her story for the past several years has been unbelievably ridiculous, repetitive and boring. It’s always the same thing, she’s with Liam, then she’s not because he’s with Steffy, then she’s with Liam again but she bounces to Wyatt because Liam was 5 minutes late meeting her, like COME ON! The ONLY reason Liam and Hope aren’t married is because he was late to meet her?! So then she goes and MARRIES Wyatt?! HOW can someone bounced back and forth between people that quickly, and with that level of commitment? This story is a disaster and has been for a long time. I’m so ready for it to be put out of its misery.

    I loved Hope a lot and will miss her she was one of the good guys trying to do the right thing even if it blew up in her face a couple of times. I know that a lot of Steffy & Ivy fans are happy that this could mean the return for Steffy and Ivy could take Hope’s spot as a central character. Now to the steffy fans keep dreaming JMW is not coming back and To Ivy fans….yes I would love for her to become a central part of things on the show. Please note I am a fan of Steffy from 2013 and am a huge fan of Ivy since she first debuted this year so I’m not hating. I think that many viewers didn’t always appreciate Hope but I think once Kim leaves the show for good people will see the difference she made and totally miss her. It kind of feels like the end of an era after 5 year of Hope Logan be at the centre of 80% of the storylines and drama so I think a change will be good for everyone but I’m still going to miss her especially as I was really Hoping that she would descover the baby wasn’t Wyatt’s than she would divorce him and finally finally Hope and Liam would officially be together leaving room for an angsty love/hate relationship between Wyatt & Ivy after both being dumped by their respective love interest.That’s what I was hoping for. My big question is how will they end it will she leave for town or are they going to kill her off, guess we will have to wait and see. Will miss Kimberley Matula readily!!!!!

    I like the S/L ‘n’ where it’s going! Rick is coming into his own. He & Maya Avant be-long 2-gether. They’d make a beautiflul “dynamic Dual”! Caroline is gonna flip out ‘cuz Ridge & Katie r no longer a couple. Ridge has 2 have some woman stringing a-long somewhere. He’s gonna come on strong 2 Caroline, ‘n’ Rick is gonna catch them this time. Again, it will b innocent, but, @ the same time, she misses him too! Remember, she was having a lot of thoughts about her ‘n’ Ridge also. How can u turn off those feelings so-fast! If u really r committed 2 someone u just don’t go around kissing people outside of your relationship/marriage! It’s always—-”HANDS OFF! b-cuz u r with who u want. Maya is more of a ‘loyal’ woman then “the designer” @ FC. You have more control than that over yourself. U r in a commitment that u r supposed 2 honor no matter what. There shouldn’t b anyone that could turn your head away from someone. That’s a lot like the youngsters of 2-day. Every few weeks, they’re changing partners that supposed 2 b their “forever love”. I just guess forever only last for a few months. I need 2 get out of “the stone-age” ‘n’ get with the program. RIGHT? I could go on-n-on-n-on about this. But I would like 2 do some “SOAP OPERA” writing. It would “BLOW” your MIND!!!!

    Five years and her recent dramatic scenes with Caroline over the mess she made of her marriage to Rick were at least more acting than blank reactions for the first time ever. Of course she was attempting to match Linsey Godfrey’s(Caroline’s) hand gestures move for move to emphasize her frustration and it was a bit amusing but she did manage to do admirably in those scenes. Good luck in the future and here’s to a hopefully better recast.

    I like the actress, since she’s really talented. I do wish her the best. That said, I’m glad Hope is leaving. I used to love her, and I liked her with Liam back in the day. Now, their storyline became too boring and unrealistic, and repetitive, but I was rooting for her and Wyatt. However, her character changed from being a sweet girl with morals into a no-good, hypocritical tramp like her mother. Time for her to leave, just as Brooke did. I’m loving Liam & Ivy together, and I think they should bring back Steffy (even as a recast) as Wyatt’s new girl. I’m sure that Hope will end up losing the baby and Wyatt will be frustrated with Hope’s mourning over the ‘death’ of her relationship with Liam. They’ll probably end up divorcing and she’ll go to Europe to run HFTF.

    Amen to everything you said! I used to really like Hope, I really liked her with Oliver at first and then with Liam at the beginning, but then I LOVED Liam and Steffy together, and I LOVED Hope and Wyatt… again, at the beginning. Now, I don’t want anyone to be with anyone! Except Liam and Ivy, I think they have mountains of potential.

    I could totally see everything you said happening. Maybe Hope will move to Milan with Brooke to raise the baby away from Quinn’s craziness, if she doesn’t lose it. My problem with the show though is that every time a character needs to get away, they move somewhere in Europe. Already, Taylor, Thorne, Steffy and Thomas are in Paris, and Brooke is in Milan… they could just start a whole new B&B in Europe with all the characters there!

    She has only been on for five years– it felt longer. I had nothing against the actress, as for the character a lot of my problem with her was in due to the writing. First the triangle between Oliver, Liam and Hope; then Hope, Steffy and Liam; then Hope Wyatt and Liam. And that was it, the girl had no substance build into her, just going from one guy to the next like a ping pong ball. Brooke had her fair share of men, but at least she had a history to her. The poor girl from the Valley sleeping her way into society and wealth– I understood her, but Hope was written as shallow as a puddle. I won’t miss the character and if they should recast they should only do it, if they can write something about her that doesn’t involve being in a triangle with anyone.

    Well I will probably get hammered for saying this, but I always thought she would’ve been a good recast for LuLu on GH. She looks more like JMB, and she seems like she might be able to pull off the attitude needed for that role. I also think she has the looks like Lulu’s mom, Genie Francis. I’m getting used to Emme Rylan as Lulu, and I’ve always liked her on other shows. I realize KM is on a higher-ranked soap and surely not looking for more soap work after being front-burner in what seemed like at times, the only s/l B&B had going. KM is a gorgeous actress, and despite what some say, I think she’s a solid actress, even though I’m not a full-time BB viewer.
    If she does go to another soap by chance I hope GH throws their name in the hat.

    But man oh man, Hope needed to go a long time ago! Seriously, she is probably the most used actress and Brad Bell has probably written the most story and dialogue for her in the past couple years. She is way too front and center in story when other important characters, like Thorne, Thomas, Steffy, Taylor, Jackie, Nick, Bridget, Owen, etc. are nowhere in sight. I really think its time to give this character a rest and I really hope they don’t recast the role. Maybe one day Kim will return to the show because she is good in the role, but I’m not sad she’s leaving now.

    Have Hopes character get into a bad car wreck go into labor and then in a coma and while in coma she need plastic surgery and when she awakens its a new person playing Hope. I dont know how the writers plan on writing But even killing off she could come back years later presumed dead but alive. And with Wyatt and his meddlesome mother maybe Quinn could end up and in psycho ward and Wyatt could fine happiness with a new lady. and leave town for good.

    I think if she is leaving they should recast the role. Because it would leave a big gap in the story line of her having a baby with Wyatt.

    She’s so beautiful! No offense to the actress who plays Ivy or the one who plays Caroline, but neither can stack up to the way Hope looks in her many outfits. And since fashion is the backdrop theme of the show, I just felt like she was the perfect fit. She’s a fine actress, so I don’t even understand that hater nonsense. It’s not like anyone else on B&B is far superior. They all do that cheesy soap acting. Hope brought that youthful aspect to the show. Aly is a bore. I don’t feel like I care enough about the older cast to continue with the storytelling. So that’s where I stand with this news.

    sorry she has to leave, hope you make the move to try and keep her.!!!! The story line has got to get going and get Liam and hope together before she leaves, and just have the baby be Liams, and move away, that will be their exit, but then just try and bring them back occasionally, for special family get together. Don’t just let her leave, especially with Wyatt!! Please don’t do that disappointment, and that injustice to your loyal dedicated viewers. HOPE AND LIAM BELONG TOGETHER , FOR ONCE LET THERE BE A HAPPY ENDING FOR SOMEONE.

    GET RID OF MIA,, KICK HER TO THE CURB, CAN NOT STAND HER, AND THAT SMIRKY SMILE, AND BIG GIGANTIC EYES AND THE WAY SHE ROLLS HER EYES, GET HER OUT OF THERE.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I LOVE Kim Matula and I hate to see her go….especially so out of the blue! I loved her with
    Scott Clifton as Hope&Liam, they had a magic on the screen like no on else on the show.
    I wish some how we could change her mind, but I guess she has other endeavors to conquer.
    I feel cheated out of a Hope&Liam solid relationship after watching for 5 years but now I am
    done! Bradley Bell and his writing staff had a hand in that and now it is too late! So after Kim
    makes her exit from B&B, I will no longer be watching the show. Her message of HFTF meant
    a lot to me as Hope and now she’s just leaving. No reason just leaving….I will not accept a
    recast of Hope, nobody can have that chemistry with Scott like she has NOBODY!!!!!!

    The whole show has gotten to where it is a repeat of past plots. It started with Eric sleeping with Brooke who was involved with Ridge then Thorne. Seems there is not a single female on the show that has not been in a triangle with at least brothers and sometimes the brothers father. You can not watch for weeks and catch up a day or 2 because you have seen the plot before.

    I so wanted her to find out the baby was really Liam’s and they would get back together and leave the show together to be happy together somewhere without all the drama.
    The show will not be the same without her and especially with Brook gone and the old Ridge gone.
    Please, please if there is any way, don’t go. Some of us depend on this show for our daily entertainment because we don’t have anything else.

    I would be thrilled if the characters Wyatt & Liam left with her. Brad Bell centering this show around this character/actress for four years while losing good actors shows how he is not up to the task of running this show. May I make a suggestion this actress and I use that word loosely needs a good drama coach.

    I agree… she really does need acting lessons! You would think with heather Tom and Rena Sofer she would have possibly upped her game a bit, but I guess she doesn’t know what she doesn’t know….

    She is a pretty girl and while that will open a few doors, but she is not very talented right now at this point in her career and looks will only go so far as she has to compete with some amazing actresses out there that just as attractive.

    Wish her well.

Ya’ know…that sounds V-E-R-Y SPOILED AND V-E-R-Y SELF-CENTERED to me!!!!! One other thing: IMO, as actresses, B-O-T-H Heather Tom and Rena Sofer DEFINITELY know how to BRING IT!!!!!

No one just ups and leaves a husband and unborn child just because you can’t get over a teenage crush dragged out.

No one can replace Hope though, so I really hope that they don’t go in that direction. I’m still trying to adjust to the new Ridge & still don’t think he’s the right man for the part. No offense to the actor…he’s just not Ridge & never will be. I’m curious to see the exiting storyline for Kim Matula though. I hope it’s a real dramatic one brought on by Quinn. Maybe she finally goes berserk & murders Hope?? It should be interesting…

    i’m very disappointed in the way B&B has turned out. It used to be a great show with colorful, talented actors, now it seems to be catering to a younger audience and it’s boring. The Hope/Wyatt/Quinn/Liam/Bill/Katie/Brook/Ridge saga is boring and a huge waste of 30 minutes. I like Carter and Deacon, but Maya and Rick really??? Both of those characters offer nothing to the show. Seeing Eric, Pam, Daisy, and Marcus is always nice because they bring life to the show. Definitely not the same soap as it used to be.

Need to improve on this story because Liam I’m tired of him he acts like he can not let her after sleeping with brother. She did take after her mother. you have Eric Forrester putting his youngest son over Ridge Forrester it is totally ridiculous.Eric tries to judge Ridge over a kiss and he did some bad things to his wife Stephanie. Anf now we come to the part where Ridge can get control over the company he have more stock than Eric if he get his children involve. Make this show right with Ridge and where .Let someone else play their part. He need his children. Rick thinking a kiss is the worst in him sleeping with the model

    I am heartbroken, I mean really heartbroken. I live for the episodes she is in. I will watch the same episode sometimes twice, if the episode is about Hope, and especially about Hope and Liam. I certainly hope Kim’s leaving has nothing to do with all the mean spirited, jealous, online comments. She has to know that the folks that love her, so far out number the completely out of touch nonsense I have read. She is a Fantastic actress. She is by far my favorite female actress on daytime. I have been watching Soap Opera’s for a very long time = approx. 40 years. I hope if you(Kim/Hope) are truly moving on, it’s for the right reasons. I am truly saddened and feel a great loss. I feel like the Bold and the Beautiful is really losing someone so special, and here again- I hope for the right reasons. I also feel that the powers that be for the Bold and the Beautiful has had there fingers on the pulse of their viewers for the most part with Hope, Liam, Wyatt, and mom, being such a big part of the story. I just wish that at least a few times relationships and marriages would work and stay together for the long haul. That Hope and Liam would finally marry, have their family, and live happy ever after. Perhaps the same for Brook (finally) and someone special, and maybe even Eric and Donna. Not having everyone marry over and over again, then divorced in 10 minutes. And not these constant frustrations of people longing for someone forever and never being together for very long. Too much. It needs a little bit of mixing it up. I did not mean to go on and on and presume to tell the experts how to write their stories. There is just no way I could just let Kim/Hope leave without telling her how very much I look forward to watching her everyday. Please don’t leave unless you want to. I will really miss you. I wish you every happiness life can bring.
    Sincerely,
    Vicky Ruschak

    With the terrible storylines, who can blame her for leaving. ANYONE could write a better show. I used to love this show but now I just read about it and never watch the recordings. The triangle sl is old and most empowered women do not put up with it, also the who the daddy line is a sl from the 60 and 70′s. Doesn’t Hollywood have anyone that can write something creative? Try to find the folks who wrote for As The World Turns. Grab some of their actors, Jack, Carly and get back to fashion. If they don’t stop the horrible sls you are going to lose KKL also. Then you can kiss the show goodbye. No one cares about Ridge/Katie/Donna. Let Hope go off on a pilgrimage and then the new recast Hope can come back revived, determined and self assured.

    Well, she did make a choice to stay b-cuz, like she said, she got tired of different men in ‘n’ out of her life as a child. Wyatt is right about his mother, she shouldn’t have been a single mom. That really isn’t fair to your children. If u have children, u should make sure they have a daddy in the home with them ‘n’ u need a husband too. That is really selfish of a mom ‘n’ she’s only thinking about herself! TOO too selfish of a so-called woman-mother. Learn your ‘man b 4 u sleep with him. Take ur time ‘n’ do it right. Things do happen, ‘n’ some things can’t b avoided. But, make yourself learn some control! Only person u have control over in this life is yourself & ur children under 18, ‘n’ sometimes u don’t have that control. Just learn to float sometime like Ivy’s character, she was patient ‘n’ genuinely concerned about Liam’s heart. If it wasn’t her he’ would b happy with then, so it b. She gets the man. Sometimes we as ladies, we need to show some patience & not just jump in the sack with the first one that comes along. Those feelings only last for so long. U need something true, something REAL! If it’s good 2 ‘ya, it has to b worth waiting on. Check OUT YOUR M-I-N-D!!!

  191. WRichardson says:

    Timing is bad for KM’s departure and the execs would be wise to recast. Hope is in the midst of a major storyline and they need to capture the moment. They already allowed Steffie to miscarry a child and hopefully they arent planning same for Hope. Additionally, the dynamics between Hope, Wyatt, and Quinn are too magnificent and that essence should not be lost just because Kim Matula is leaving the show. I wish her well but do not want the character to die. There are viable actresses available to step in and capture or make the charater their own.

Glad its over. Bring back Steffy. Show went down hill without her. Let Wyatt and Hope be happy..until they execute her…kill her off I hope. Bring STEFFY! Too much back and forth going on…let a whole new family move in the area…like another Spectra dominating the Forresters.

    I guess she got tired of being the focal point of nearly every single episode. I know actors can get disgruntled about lack of screen time, but never over too much screen time. *sarcasm, btw* Scratching my head on this one.

    Don’t b like that. Offer 2 help them out. The writers’ have their hands full. Rick feels so betrayed by Caroline, he can’t think straight! She is after fortune & fame BIG TIME! Caroline ran Maya away, ‘n’ Maya just didn’t fight b-cuz she was so ‘messed-up’ in the head she didn’t think she was good enough b-cuz of the way Caroline ‘the witch’ treated her!` Maya deserves happiness too! Rick would be a great father for their children, ‘n’ an excellent husband. All he wants is someone to truly love him and Maya does. Of course the fortune he has is impressive. That helps too! What woman wouldn’t? She’s crazy if she doesn’t say money means nothing to her. It all makes 4 a good life. To truly b with someone who is only interested in u is ‘genuine’ & can’t b beat. She would b all so greatful. All the other women in his life played on him. They loved him & then they didn’t. If they truly loved him, they’d b sticking in there with him. He deserves some commitment too! Someone who he can trust. Maya’s the girl………..

This is just TV ‘n’ we all have an opinion on it. Just enjoy ‘n’ don’t pass judgment on anyone. I enjoy predicting what will happen next, who’s gonna get with who next. All of them play good parts. They also have room for improvement & growth. NOW, who is Wyatt going to get with? Need another ‘new’ character 4 him. It’s going 2 b interesting to c how he treats his mom now that Hope is out!

    Kim sis a huge talent and has big shoes to fill,. Kim made an awesome Allie Sweeney, I never saw that coming. So long as Liam and Hope get their due time to be their fairy tale, I am tired of them almost making it!!!! Real life is not like the “movies” and Kim has been one of the BEST actresses on the show! You and Allison have made and impact on this role and I have fallin for each of your roles BUT you have some serious shoes to fill as does the role of Ridge that I am still waiting to be impressed. I would not have missed him staying in London, I don’t connect him and Katie. I have not felt the love from her like I did with her and Bill
    s character. Quinn is useless in her acting and I fast forward in her story lines, waste of my time. She is just a skinny older person with no ability to cry or even act well. No shock Kim is leaving, she is SO REAL and the only real connection was with Liam! Wyatt has no drama acting faces at all, He makes me crazy with his confused look, looks more constipated than concerned or confused. Even if Hope died off I can’r see Wyatt and Quinn lasting, I would quit watching, I am already for the first time in my life down to recording it. I used to plan my day around the show and now I am almost hesitant to catch up! LIAM is the bomb and Ivy plays love struck well but if Liam and Hope don’t make it work I am done watching. The reality of drama shows is to see some of what you wish would come true in your own life that doesn’t in real life but plays out well and happy on screen!!!! Like the love scenes that don’t ever ROLL over like on screen, sometimes you want the nice guy to finally win!! Hope was such a brilliant actress her role will be hard to fill! But acting with Liam should make it a lot easier! Great job to the make up people and the hairstylist, wold love to stand in to do hair any time someone is out on vacation or sick!!

    We need 2 pray that the ratings don’t go down. I believe KKL is in Paris for their version of ‘DWTS’. She’ll reprise her role in a couple of months. She came 2 her senses b 4 she left out. She needs 2 b ‘new & improved’! Maybe a new Hope will come. As 4 Wyatt & his ‘mom’, they need 2 b come estranged. He needs 2 spread his ‘own wings’ & let Deacon & his ‘disllusional ‘l mother can have at it. That’s the only thing that would help her. I’m glad she’s staying on & hope Wyatt does too! The B&B just needs ‘new’ blood 2 take over. New writers. The Bell creator has passed on, so, they need help.

    They have to recast Hope. That was a vital role she played.e’s role. KKL will b back, but, she needs to be the matriarch of the forrester family. She needs to mature. Her children are getting away. Karla Mosely & Jacob Young need 2 run FC. Caroline needs to go back to NY, and Ridge needs to get a life. Bill & Katie need to reunite. Taylor & her children need 2 come back & claim their inheritance. Eric needs to chill & enjoy his life. He needs 2 let the next generation run things, & just travel the world with his brother. We can deal with cameo appearances from Eric. Taylor needs 2 come back, get with a ‘new’ Ridge(this ones TERRIBLE, don’t fit the role), & become ‘good friends’ like they should b. Not so much bed-hopping amongst the setting. Would love 2 c Maya & Rick get married & have a baby. Caroline don’t know how 2 work it! If she got pregnant, she would have Rick forever! She did under-handed stuff 2 Maya & Rick.. But then, “everybody plays the fool sometimes” & “there’s no exception 2 the rule”. Maya deserves some happiness too-oo! Ske plays an excellent part! Her & Rick, mmm, mmm, ugh! SMOKIN’ – HOT! i’D LIKE 2 HELP WITH THE STORYLINES. GOT some ideals I’d like to try. I do notice some bloopers from time-2-time. on the show.

    It won’t seem right with someone else in that role as Hope as she seems to have it covered in all areas. watching someone try to recapture that will be very odd and I don’t feel they will be able to hold a candle to what Matula put into it over the years. I do hope I’m wrong but I just can’t see anyone else footing the bill in the role of Hope but Kim Matula. Very sad to see her leave

    I just started watching The Bold and Beautiful about two week before Hope left the show. It looks like I started watching the show at the wrong time. It is now the end of February and I can’t see myself watching the show too much. Hope and Liam appeared to be an honest and loving couple that the writers should have kept together. The chemestry will not be the same if another Hope is cast in her place. Some times it is best for the shows to “Gut it up” and pay for what the audience wants. Rick and Maya are a joke, and there needs to be a turn of events where Carolyn and Rick get back together. Hopefully someone will listen!

    Hope leaving as sad. Not as sad as her story line was getting before she left. There is only so much back and forth, back and forth a viewer can stand. The Rick and Maya story is old, sad and ugly. There should never have been an couple with them. Now that you’ve thrown Maya as a transgender character I cannot see as to why, boosting ratings with the GLADD or setting most viewers up in arms. Tacky story from the moment she left Marcus while engaged to him to try to interfere with Rick and Caroline’s marriage. Sadly writers thought it would make a great storyline but it is horrible. I record this show now and pretty much fast forward anything to do with them.

    I really liked Kimberly Matula and was disappointed in her exit.
    I don’t understand when actors leave the show and they never come back. Bridgett, Taylor, Stephanie’s brother etc. Bring the charters back if not the original new actors would be great. Bring Brook a new love interest and allow them to be soul mates. It’s nice to see someone happy for a change.
    She has bounced back and forth to the same men for many years .
