According to the Associated Press, soap vet Maurice Bernard is having a hard time dealing with sheltering in place for two reasons. The actor deals with bipolar disorder and is also anxious about his new book, “ Nothing General About It: How Love (And Lithium) Saved Me On and Off General Hospital.” Bernard has been very forthcoming regarding his being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and how his spouse and the medication lithium have helped him to cope. Bernard thought that by now he would be promoting his book in addition to acting on General Hospital. Both were sidelined during the pandemic and have caused the popular daytime star some angst.
About five years ago my doctor decided to put me on a medication to lower my blood pressure. Up until this time, diet and exercise were working but not anymore. My numbers were ranging 230/140 and that is not good at all. I was prescribed Lisinopril and for the two months that I took it, I was miserable. I did not initially make the connection and thought other things were wrong with me. I believed I was dealing with sinus problems and allergies. It started with a cough at around 4:00 every morning. I would cough nine or 10 times in a row, and could not stop. This is a very troubling feeling because most times I cough a little and it would go away but I had absolutely no control over this. I had never experienced side effects from medication before so this upset me greatly. During the day I began experiencing indigestion and acid reflux. When I bent over my chest felt as if it were on fire and after eating my throat hurt and my ears burned. I tried over the counter remedies but they did not help much.
Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful have been hoping and waiting to see Steffy Forrester get over Liam and move on. Last November there were rumors that Daniel Goddard, who had just been let go from The Young and the Restless would join the sister soap and romance Ms. Forrester. That did not pan out and the triangle between Hope, Liam, and Steffy continued in its various forms. A few weeks back, Don Diamont put up photos with Jacqueline Woods, indicating the two were on the set of the CBS daytime drama. This sparked rumors that Dollar Bill and Steffy would become an item again.
Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful have complained for some time about favorite characters placed in the background and the lack of diversity on the show. Beloved characters like Charlie, Pam. and Donna are rarely seen. Black and brown cast have been introduced, but never stick around, or are seen infrequently. Maya Avant, her mom Vivienne and dad Julius, Xander, Nicole, Zende, Zoe, Carter, Justin, Detective Sanchez, Dr, Buckingham, and Seargent Baker are but memories at this point. Soap Dirt, however, is now reporting that one former B&B actor, a person of color will soon return to the LA. fashion world.
It was announced sometime back that when daytime drama shows returned from hiatus, the actors over age 65 would not be allowed to tape scenes right away. This was because of the risk of COVID-19 for older adults. Eric Braeden ( Victor Newman, The Young and the Restless) immediately spoke out saying that senior cast members should be able to sign a waiver and resume working if they so desire. It looks like Braeden wields the same power as his, alter ego, Victor because Soap Dirt says the veteran actor will be among the first on the set, should Y&R begin taping next week. The projected first day is alleged to be July 15.
When it comes to spoiler alerts and breaking news related to the four remaining soap operas, fans know to tread with caution. This is especially true when a serious accusation is lodged against a favorite actor or actress. Viewers don't like to be given fake news, but in the entertainment business, it does happen. Just because a set insider or trusted source has supposedly revealed breaking news, does not prove that it is absolutely true. Even so, viewers do want to know what is allegedly going on with their favorite programs as well as the cast members who portray their beloved characters. Having said that I will now report what has been written, but please keep in mind this is merely a rumor at this point.
