165 December 14th, 2013 Ronn Moss’ Wife, Devin DeVasquez Takes To Social Media To Voice Her Opinion Over Ridge Recast!

Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

Well, we knew people would have their opinions one way, or the other, when Thorsten Kaye made his first on-screen appearances as the recast Ridge Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful!

However, we did not expect the original Ridge’s (Ronn Moss) wife, Devin DeVasquez to take to social media to voice her displeasure over the introduction of Kaye on yesterday’s episode, so soon after his debut.

That being said, DeVasquez took to both her official Facebook page and her Twitter account to communicate her strong reaction to Ronn’s fans and her followers!

On Facebook, Devin started her posts with:  “Okay many of you are asking my opinion on the new Ridge and I’ve been reluctant to answer, but today I watched and all I can say is that they were trying way too hard to match something intangible that Ridge had. All I can say is that Ronn would have owned that moment of this entrance they were trying so hard to achieve and I just didn’t see that charisma. I think you guys know what I mean. It’s the charisma that Ridge had from the very beginning never to be seen again unfortunately.”

On Twitter, Devin pointed out: “I think Bell shot himself in the foot with this one. He should have done what Ronn asked him to do and create a new character for this guy.”

So, what do you think of Devin’s comments?  Do you agree with her assessment on the recast situation?   What was your initial reaction to Thorsten Kaye on yesterday’s episode, which basically was a slow build to the new Ridge re-entering the Forrester estate.  Weigh-in!

    I do not like this new Ridge. We want Ronn Moss back !!!!! Please come back the show is terrible without you Ronn Moss , We love you as an actor and really do miss you,

    No one can replace Ronn Moss on the Bold & The Beautiful. CBS needs to bring him back! Bring him back and double his salary. Have Karen get in shape (40 lbs lighter) and become Ridge’s wife. Not BROOK! Ridge was and still remains the hottest male soap opera star!!!

    Totally agree. Miss Ronn Moss as Ridge and all he brought to the show. The new Ridge is not Ridge, never will be. I wish Ronn could come back, and the Bell family should beg and offer him the moon. The chemistry between Ridge and Brooke was amazing and so missed. The show is not the same show I loved for so many years.

    I wish Ronn all the best in his new journey, but hope it will lead him back to Band B one day. Also so thankful good health and happiness prevails in his life.

    She went to far. Maybe they realize they made a mistake with Ronn leaving B&B. They must now realize its too late to turn back. So she out there bashing the new guy as Ridge to rile the fans her way. But she be so disappointed because most of us are done with them & are behind Bell & B&B & the New Ridge

    KansasGuest replied

    If she ever held out hope her husband could return to B&B, that ship has now sailed because 1) you DON’T burn bridges by publicly saying the Exec Producer needs to take story ideas from actors, and 2) you DON’T criticize actors who were cast because your husband voluntarily vacated a role. It’s bad form, bad manners and reeks of ingratitude and arrogance all around.

    I wonder what she’s gonna do when TK kills it, and we all know it’s coming. Post on YouTube? Skype? I think it’s funny that Brills a go. TK has chops, you’d think if you were an actress who was looking for an Emmy nod you’d jump at the chance to work with TK who just made Anjelica Houston look sexzy. Sorry but Bridge was puke worthy 20 yrs ago. I always wanted Ridge to stand up and be anything but a doormat.

    We who have watched TK on other show know his ability. The actor can only do so much with what he is handed. I am thrilled to have T K here! I just couldn’t bear seeing that over surgical plastic face with those ridiculous side burns for one more scene. Can’t wait to see what Thorsten does with this roll. Sour grapes from Moss’s wife makes it so much more worthwhile! Go Thorsten!

    wilson replied

    Then your beef is with the “writers”, not the “actor”. Actors do not write the script or story lines. You obviously were a TK fan & watched HIM on another soap & network. Those of us who grew with all the B&B characters for over 20 yrs, find this recasting quite troubling and hurtful. We love Ronn Moss. TK may be a fine actor indeed, however he can NEVER be Ridge. There IS only one Ridge and that is Ronn Moss! Sorry.

    I agree. I read those arrogant statements and was surprised at the crudity of her remarks. There’s no going back on this one. Good-bye RM. I think TK is going to be wonderful in the part.

    Devin is right and B & B Fan is wrong. TK is the most boring Ridge Forrester I think I could ever imagine. He plays the role with almost no energy. Ronn used to walk into the room on the show and there was electricity in the air. TK has no charisma and has a poor sense of timing when it comes to his lines. His delivery is slow and boring. I know it might be considered poor form for the wife of an actor to complain about his replacement. But she’s right. Bring back Ronn!

    I really and truly miss Ronn Moss. TK is alright. but there will never be a Ridge ike Ronn. He has charisma personified. A real natural for that part. I wonder what nut wanted him to take a pay cut.
    Bet he’s sorry now. I know I am. To be honest. they ran the Hope Liam storyline in the ground. It dragged on waaay to long..They forgot about their loyal followers since the show’s inception. I part with this message,

    Agree 100% but she’s just sticking by her husband. This guy is better looking too. Ridge was suppose to be a playboy who all the girls went nuts over. This guy suits the bill. Ron was/is a great actor but he didn’t have the look. This guys hot!

  4. Tracey says:

    Sounds to me like someone is very bitter, and it’s not Ronn Moss. Yes, Moss was great as Ridge but he did chose to walk away. Ridge is a very important part of B&B and he was needed on the canvas. Moss has had a year to decide to come back to the role he created but still, he choose not to. A recast was in order and I think Mr. Kaye will do very well if given the chance. Ronn Moss also asked that his fans move on from wanting him to come back as Ridge because he was no longer interested in playing that part. His fans have moved on, I think his wife needs to do the same.

    He’s only been Ridge now for a day. Why would you judge someone’s acting skills in a day? Give him a chance to prove himself he’s not a bad actor and he’s hot. Ron Moss is not coming back and he seems fine with that. I know that everyone is entitled to a opinion but she sounds kinda salty. It was Ron’s choice to quit and tour with his band. He didn’t have to leave but he did. Some people just wanted Ridge back and knew it was gonna be a recast.

    No she was not what is she still in the bathroom at Eric’s. Brad Bell treats everyone badly sooner or later except for KKL and I will be nice and keep my opinion on that one to myself. Out of curiosity I went to her facebook and read her comments in their complete form she had some valid points but for a woman who just had surgery she needed to just say no comment when they asked her about the recast.

    Well she is hardly objective is she? However she has a point. I know they were trying to build up the anticipation for a new Ridge, but if felt anti-climatic since everyone knew what was going on, so it didn’t live up to the hype.
    Also both TK and JM looked very awkward in that reunion of father and son. Yet, I am still willing to give this recast a chance to make the character his own, but I do get how RM, having been an original cast member might have hoped Brad Bell would have retired Ridge from the canvas if he wasn’t playing him.
    But very few people in daytime warrant that kind of treatment, so if RM was waiting around hoping they would beg him to come back at some high salary, I guess he will be waiting a long time, because he now knows exactly what the powers that be on that show really think of him— replaceable.

    k/kay replied

    Mary I think that they were showing the strain these two guys have between each other after all Ridge did not even show up for his mothers’ death. I am told they are going to address that because let’s face it Stephanie loved Ridge more then anyone in fact at times it bordered on incest. I do not know if it will work or not but remember he is really Massimo’s biological son. All I care about is Ridge kicking Rick to the curb I hate that little snot. And if Mrs. Moss want’s to talk about people being treated badly Winsor Harmon has been on the show what 17 yrs now can’t remember and when was the last time he had a decent storyline try a very LONG time!

  13. Nikki says:

    First off, why would anyone care about this woman’s opinion? Just because she’s Ronn’s wife? That hardly seems like a reason for her to comment.

    Secondly, didn’t Ronn leave on his own? I thought he wanted to pursue other things and whatnot. Where does he or his wife have any right to judge what Brad Bell does with Ridge when he was too petty not to stick around or come back.

    Third, she didn’t see “charisma”? It was a literally 30 second scene. And, no offense, watching the show my entire life, Ronn was never the best actor.

    I was surprised by the recasting of Ridge and I wasn’t exactly thrilled, mainly because I think bringing the character on NOW but not when Stephanie was dying is absurd. But I’ve seen Thorsten’s previous work and I say give him a chance to make this character his own- it’s been done before, it can be done again.

    I think she made herself look ridiculous. RONN is the one who wanted to leave! Fans respected his decision. Sure it’ll probably take some time for most fans to get used to him, but Ridge is needed on the show!! Ronn didn’t come back so what was Bell supposed to do!? It’s not Thorsten’s fault Ronn left! He said himself he didn’t even know he would be Ridge at 1st! Devin said a lot more than that and was flat out disrespectful to a man who didn’t deserve her cruel words. He’s been on screen for ten seconds literally and she’s judging and mocking him and his acting skills. She looked like a petty brat throwing a tantrum last night. Her husband left on his own free will so her childish rant doesn’t even make sense. Go Thorsten!!

I really liked Ronn Moss as Ridge ,but if he and Bell could not come to an agreement, there were much better choices, IMO.

    Exactly!!!!….reminds me of why I swore off this soap a long time ago. Couldn’t stand the way all the “behind the scenes Bell drama” impacted the show, not to mention the over-the-top (undeserved) KKL love! RM is Ridge Forrester, period, and always will be. Although he was going to be a tough act to follow, not in acting ability but in image and spirit, the least that could have been done was to cast someone who maintained the style, class and charisma of the original, not this extremely sloppy second! (Would be nice to see Moss turn up elsewhere, even if only for a short stint….would make an excellent new Cassadine on GH. How about it “Cartini?”)

    I’ll grant that she has a right to her opinion about what she saw on the screen, but isn’t it a little premature for ANYBODY to be saying “never to be seen again unfortunately” (in regard to Ridge’s alleged “charisma,” which I never saw, or anything else)? Even if Thorsten Kaye proves not to be the right recast (again, way premature to judge that, but OK, it’s possible), that doesn’t mean there isn’t another actor out there who can give Ridge the “charisma” that’s necessary.

    This is a situation in which there’s probably nothing critical she could say that would sound appropriate, so I think she would have been wiser to continue to say nothing. As I said, she’s got a right to her opinion, and a right to express it, too, but just because you have the right to do something doesn’t always mean you should.

And FYI she did nothing but trash mouth Hunter Tylo for years. His acting consisted of stroking hair and running around in Speedo’s saying Logan or Doc. I thought it was quite funny when TK dug through the swimsuits and tossed the speedo’s. And trust me I am not a fan of Brad Bell but this conversation should have been between RM & BB. If he ever had a future in daytime she just ruined it the Bell’s are a lot more powerful then some playmate and a used up rock star!

    That is the worst recast I’ve seen in a very long time. The “new Ridge” has no resemblance as to what the character of Ridge represents. There are people that can put on a haute couture suit and make it look like a Walmart knock-off , sort of like the difference between a Forrester original and Sally Spectre knock-off with Ridge (Ronn Moss) being the original Forrester haute couture.
    I’m not saying that it was her place to express her opinion in a public forum, but, she is correct in her assessment of the recast.
    I do not like the recast….judging his acting ability from what I saw Friday, he is a one dimensional actor.

    Thorsten Kaye is a classically-trained actor. It’s blowing me away that he’s being “judged” on one sentence, and one hug that was MEANT to be uncomfortable. And he’s physically beautiful, and wears clothes well. RM was the speedo king? TK is the no-tie king. Let’s give him a chance to do what he was paid to do, and not make blanket, incorrect and inappropriate remarks based on less than 60 seconds of an entrance.

    Michelle replied

    Worst recast ever! It has been months and it is true what people say, he is one dimensional. He’s hard to watch. He isn’t believable as Ridge. He is More like spencer. He should have been a long lost brother. Soaps are good at bringing back long lost family members and over using that storyline.
    Ridge is annoying, a snob, a romantic, a know it all and soft around the edges. Ronn Moss’s acting ability was sometimes annoying but he made Ridge likable. The new Ridge is overbearing, loud, abrasive, scruffy and not likable. Him falling out of helicopter was best thing to happen to show. I can’t bare to see him on screen anymore or hear his shouting voice. Time for another recast. Or bring back Ronn Moss.

    I don’t like Thorsten Kaye in the role of Ridge at all. I agree that he needs to shave and cut his hair, or at least comb it. He always looks like he has just crawled out of bed. And I don’t think he is a good actor. He acts like he is sleepwalking through all his scenes. To me, he acts as if he is bored with the whole thing. They should have hired someone who could show a little bit of passion.

    I think Thorsten is hot with his scruff. But, since he is portraying Ridge Forrester, an icon in the fashion industry, I think a haircut and shave and a tie sometimes would be a good idea!!

    Having dropped B&B months ago (and I was a 1-soap viewer), from what I’ve seen of Mr. Kaye, he is a MAN’S MAN and a heart-throb. I read his interview – he was humble, honest, and only trying to do HIS job, NOT RM’s. He had nothing but respectful comments about the former actor who played Ridge.
    I’m certain he’s secure enough to look past the recent ranting’s of DD.
    DD needs to get a grip on reality. Most get a gold watch and some cheese/crackers after 40 years on the job! But we’ve seen enough of the entitled mentality of some celebrities to know what’s behind all this. DD has previously ranted about other actors when it was to her benefit. Nice to see she’s getting back what she thought nothing of dishing out. She’s got the issues, not RM, from what I’ve concluded! She has no chip on her shoulder – she has the entire tree!

I’m glad they were smart enough to snatch him up so he’s on my screen again.

    The person I pity the most in all this is TK. Poor guy…getting dragged into all this B&B behind the scenes drama. What a mess Brad Bell made when he let certain divas (male and female) run the show…eventually, they all turn on each other and on him, while taking down the innocent ones as well (TK).

    TK arrival as the new Ridge is the reaon I tuned back in after a year of not watching B&B. He’s a great actor, and if (BIG IF) Brad Bell doesn’t ruin his character with his usual crappy writing, perhaps B&B can find its way back to a more balanced and character driven show.

    But if I were him (TK) I wouldn’t want to deal with this crap….hopefully he didn’t sign a long-term contract.

    Looking at this picture of her, I thought she must be rather young, but she’s 50 for god’s sake! She should know better! :(
    She’s done her husband a disservice by making these statements. She’s only drawing attention to the fact that he was so terrible in the end. She’s probably just saying what RM wanted her to say, though, since he couldn’t say those things himself.
    I only started watching B&B about 1-1/2 years ago, so I just saw Ronn at the end of his career, and I must say it was pretty awful. He always “phoned it in” in my opinion. Couldn’t figure out how two beautiful women could possible be fighting over this guy for 25! Freaking! Years!

    I have watched B&B for a very, very, long time. I do like Ronn Moss. WE must remember that Ronn made the decision to leave B&B& he didn’t want to return to the show. I love Thorston Kaye& i am so thrilled be is on B&B as the new Ridge Forrestor. I think Thorston will be great as Ridge Forrestor. I loved Thorston on AMC & OLTL& he is an Excellent Actor. I do miss my beloved soaps AMC& OLTL & am heartbroken again that they are not returning again. I hope that someday my 2 beloved soaps AMC & LTL will be able to return again someday. Agnes Nixon , created both AMC & OLTL& she deserves so much better respect& she is a genius. Ronn Moss wife should not be thrashing & judgeing Thorston Kaye as the new Ridge& i feel she should keep her opinions to herself& she sounds so bitter & disrespectful. Ronn choose to leave B&B & not return. I am a soap opera fan for a lifetime. All of us soap opera fans , need to respect all of the soaps&show support all of the soaps.

    Ronn chose to leave the role. He sealed the deal, in my opinion, when he didn’t even make a short appearance at his mother’s funeral last year. I wish Thorsten luck, because that is a hard one to explain away. Maybe Devin has been reading all the positive buzz about Thorsten coming and felt jealous, who knows. I love Thorsten from his AMC days, and am glad to see him again. If anyone can give Bill a run for his money, it’s this guy!

    I think that Devin is jealous that the recast generated a LOT of buzz, and that her husband’s character was recast with such a “name” that MANY soap fans love…and they’ll give TK a chance in the role.

    I think Devin wants the recast to fail at all cost, because if TK succeeds it means that RM was *not* so irreplaceable after all…oh, and that Brad Bell “wins”. That’s what has her knickers in a twist.

    I’m a big fan of TK and Devin D.’s remarks are premature, inappropriate and downright rude. I don’t doubt that TK will succeed in this role and that he’ll bring his own skills to the role and make it his own.

    That said, and I repeat that I’m a big fan of TK, the hype around TK’s hiring and NuRidge’s return has been overdone and in one of Devin’s tweets, she talks about the hype for him being too much. Much as it pains me to say, she’s right about that. Let the man show up and do his job and he’ll be great. Fans will follow and ratings may go up. But maybe because there hasn’t been alot of good news for soap fans lately with AMC’s and OLTL’s hiatus, people in the soap magazines and online have promoted TK’s arrival as if B&B never had a serious actor on the show before, or as if now his presence will make the stories change from nonstop triangles and quadrangles to something new and different. I don’t think that will happen, for what it’s worth. But TK’s arrival is fun and exciting all on its own. It doesn’t need to be over-promoted with crazy expectations the way it has. It will be good, I’m sure.

    It’s sad .. I was hoping that Ronn Moss will come back someday but that lady and her no class has ruined that for all Ronn Moss fans.. Ronn may not have been the best actor but the love scenes between him and KKL looked so real .. The chemistry was on point! It will be hard to get use to the new Ridge but the he needed to come back.. I think Mrs. Moss is more upset that they did ask her husband to come back. As much as I like Ronn Moss, he was a bit arrogant . He thought the show cannot go on without him.. But it’s gonna be tough lesson to learn at 61 that life goes on.. But we still love him though!

    She’s also not doing her husband any favors by revealing that he apparently asked Brad Bell to put Thorsten Kaye in another role rather than Ridge–so he’s not willing to play Ridge any more but he doesn’t want anybody else playing Ridge either? That doesn’t exactly make Ronn look good, and I can’t imagine he’s happy she shared that (unless it was already publicly known and I just missed it).

    Why should Ronn have any say? Brad said Ronn wouldn’t be returning and made it sound very much like he would never come back, so he has no say. He was barely officially on for more than two seconds, so you cannot judge.

    Thorsten is going to be great in the role. But like Brad said, it may take some adjusting for some viewers to get used to the new Ridge. But I love it and embrace it completely!

    I’m not familiar with TK’s work, but so agree with everyone that stated how unfair and downright cruel Devon D’s remarks were. Ron Moss left on his own free will and was given chances to return (especially when Stephanie died) and chose not to. What gives this woman the right to say anything about the tiny scene TD was in? I just hope the writers give him material to work with. Some of you that have seen him in other very popular soaps that are no longer being aired had some fantastic writing. I had to stop watching the Bold not because of the actors, but the writing had gotten so ridiculous it was not entertaining to me any longer. I did tune in yesterday after a long absence to see the arrival of the new Ridge. I see nothing has changed. We use to have the manipulations of Bill and Steffy to make sure that Hope and Liam would never get a chance to be together. Instead we have Quinn and Wyatt. Quinn is doing what Bill use to do and Wyatt is doing what Steffy use to do. Same game just different players. I will not be watching any longer because the writing is already on the wall. That being said I wish TD the very best of luck. I hope he is given a fair chance by the fans. Having read all the comments by people who did like him in his previous roles it’s up to the writers to give him the material to work with. You can be a wonderful actor or actress, but can only deliver the lines you have to work with. In just one episode I quickly saw the writing was no different from when I stopped watching. As someone said in a previous comment I hope he didn’t sign a long contract. Until, I hear that the writing has improved I will stick by my original decision of no longer watching this soap and I watched from the first day it aired. I so wish we could have what we once had.

    I was surprised that she’d accuse Bell in print of “greed,” that she’d compare him negatively with his father Bill Bell, that she’d say it was preferable to have Ridge in a coma or dead to being recast. Yet none of that offended me in the least — it’s her opinion based on a husband and business partner she adores. But to say that RM would have “owned” the role on Dec. 13 and that TK showed no “charisma” is a little silly given that the “role” basically featured his feet.

    I’ve watched BB since day 1 until Ridges last day. The kids aren’t watching either, they think the show is not the same-(they watched a couple days after Ridge’ last appearance and noticed a shift).

    From what I read he left because the Bells/contract negotiators wanted Ridge to take a considerable salary cut.. He said no. All things relative if you went to work every day for 25+ years and your boss says oh by the way-your jobs not changing-your responsibilities the same BUT we want you to WORK FOR LESS now, how the heck would you feel? For those who don’t care for RM, well until all this Bell liked him & all was fine, until the work for less issue came about. Then upon RMs announcement he wouldn’t return, Susan Flannery-her character Stephany we all loved to hate, announces her “retirement” at the same time. (She was thinking of retiring but had made the decision to stick around for another year or so until this mess with RM happened.

    No one in my office (that’s 79 women & men plus their families) is recording it anymore since RM left-they’ve all lost interest since the interaction of KKL & RM has been destroyed (regardless if RM didn’t want to return) No one is going to be able to replace their chemistry-ever.

    Having said that – I don’t think its DD place to say anything. She should have taken the high road & not even let on she saw the show.

    Keep in mind TPTB do as they want – and over the years there hasn’t been one thing I can recall that we the viewers have been able to change via emails of protests or online petitions. But I admit I have had an extra 30 minutes since June? and that is a good for my busy life. With soaps going by the wayside Bell is likely praying things go very well with this new guy.

    The Bells like,Ronn Moss just fine. Its just that Sony cut the budget for B and B and all new actor contracts were for less money. Some,accepted the pay cut and stayed on, Ronn refused the pay cut and chose to leave the role and show. He felt insulted after 25 years to have,a pay cut but ALL the actors are facing this situation. Ronn decided to leave and said he was thru. Brad Bell took him at his word and didnt invite him to the funeral.

    I totally agree with Devin. Though I am sure Thorsten Kaye is wonderful in his own right, he is absolutely the wrong actor to replace the iconic Ronn Moss as Ridge Forrester. There are always those obvious questions that need to be answered before any recast: do you want an actor that has very similar physical characteristics, do you want an actor with very similar vocal characteristics, and do you want an actor with very similar styles? In the case of Ronn/Ridge, you need to do it one way or the other, but to the extreme. Either the new actor has be so similar to Ronn as to elicit double takes, or he needs to be completely the opposite — don’t try to be the Ronn Moss Ridge. Perhaps Devin is right — maybe just create a new character altogether and retire Ridge. (By the way, where is Jack Wagner? This would be a good time for him to return to the show.) I just don’t see Mr. Kaye as Ridge, and that’s going to make every viewing of him in the role impossible to watch. I truly think Mr. Bell blew this one big time!

I am sickened to death with this Ridge in whatever that guy’s name is. What a terrible move on Brad Bell’s part. He has absolutely ZERO charisma, ZERO charm, and is lifeless. What the heck is wrong with him? He has the dumbest look, lifeless and boring and he can’t even pronounce his words correctly (not just the accent, but his vocalization is terrible). I keep rewinding just to understand what the heck he’s saying. In acting school, they teach you to vocalize, which seems to be something this guy is lacking. What he’s lacking more of is any sort of feeling. He’s a blank slate. I gave him time now to see if he’ll show some sort of good acting, but he’s dull as a potato. I hate him, I desperately wish Ronn Moss would come back. There is no substitute for him. Sorry.

The Bell family writing team hasn’t been the same since Dad passed. Y&R is back on the Christine crap…I was so happy when she left and now she’s back the same spoiled me me me!!! Best of luck Ron!!!

    I so agree with you…I wrote how sloppy “Ridge looks these days, the scruff is all wrong and he tries to change his voice but he’s not doing a very good job of it!!!! And Ivy stooped so low…she won’t get the man as hope willl probably get an annullment from Wyatt…at least I hope so!!!! I’m not enjoying the show as much but it’s the only soap I watch anymore.

    This is a joke, right? RM thinks his ‘employer’ should have held his position until which time he decided to return to work? And in spite of how grand RM thinks he is, he was still just an employee picking up the pay check at the end of the week- it was his choice to move on and his position needed to be filled. I think Thornston Kaye is fabulous as Ridge– he is so much sex appeal and substance. Ronn Moss’ choice to leave was a really good idea at least for we B&B fans. Thank you RM- Sour grapes on the part of the wife. Has she any idea what a cry baby she looks like>? Because her hubby made the wrong choice perhaps, to quit his job somehow it is his replacements fault??
