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!
