Here’s a bit of fun and wacky soap news from The Bold and the Beautiful! The CBS soap has revealed to TV Guide that the legendary funny gal, Phyllis Diller (at 94-years-old) will be returning to the soap for a two-day guest spot this coming March!

According to TVG, “Diller will again play Gladys Pope, who was a madcap makeup artist seen numerous times on the show from 1995 to 2004.  B&B is keeping the details on Diller’s return under wraps but this much we can tell you: Gladys is back with a whole new vocation and will play an integral part in a very romantic event — one that’s perfectly timed for the soap’s 25th anniversary!”

Hmm, what could that romantic event be?  Any guesses? Let us know!

    Yah!!!! Love Phyllis and will watch her on anything, including B&B! Please announce the dates when you find out so I can dvr them!

    You go, Ms. Diller!

    Hmmmm… I bet it will involve a Forrester and/or Logan. After all, there is nobody else in Los Angeles or the fashion world for the characters to meet and build a relationship lasting more than a week with!

    Seriously, one would hope Eric and Stephanie could find their way back to each other and storng-arm their near-incestuous family into shape.

    Fun and wacky for sure. I think it’s great to include her. I can’t stand how some people are treated after they reach a certain age. I will never forget GH dumping 90 year old Anna Lee who played Lila Quartermaine. She was everyone’s beloved grandmother.


    Heather replied

    As far as I’m concerned, GH didn’t dumped Anna Lee. Jill Farren Phelphs did.


    david replied

    Yes, Heather, you are right. It would have been more accurate to say Jill Farren Phelps sacked Anna Lee. And I like that you brought it up because now it seems so fitting that JFP has been fired. RIP Anna.
