9. Kimberlin Brown Is Still Taping

If, like every other B&B viewer on the planet, you translated Detective Sanchez’s update about Sheila’s demise as a bunch of utter nonsense, well, good on you. Because from the looks of Kimberlin Brown’s Instagram, Sheila ain’t going nowhere! In the post, the actress is sitting in the CBS studio’s hair and make-up room, which suggests that she is indeed still taping. Is Sheila about to prove the LAPD wrong… again?

8. Has Denise Richards Gone NSFW?

Now that she’s a free agent, B&B alum Denise Richards is already making waves with her next project. It isn’t in film or television; rather, she opened an OnlyFans account. The platform, which allows users to interact one-on-one with fans, has a naughty reputation since many accounts are NSFW (not safe for work). “It’s a very safe platform, it’s 18 and over,” Richards told People. “You can do what you feel you want to do. It has allowed me to be able to be more interactive with fans.”

7. Lisa Rinna Shows Her Support

Fellow soaps alum and reality star Lisa Rinna has a strong opinion about Denise Richards’ OnlyFans account, which is, in a nutshell, “you go, girl”! During an interview on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Rinna was asked for her take on the former B&B star’s new venture. “I think it’s fabulous,” Rinna responded, according to People. “She’s gonna make more money than she did on the show!”

6. Li And Bill Are Happening!

B&B spoilers indicate that Bill will bond with Li, following her terrifying ordeal with Sheila. Viewers are hoping that B&B puts these two together, not only to give Dollar Bill some storyline, but to offer Li a fresh start. Don Diamont and Naomi Matsuda spoke about that potential in the latest episode of Bold Live with producer Casey Kasprzyk. “It was good timing for where Bill is in his life, to happen upon Li,” Diamont hinted. But what about Jack, Li’s estranged hubby? “Jack is finito; he’s out,” Matsuda revealed of her on-screen husband, played by Ted King. “He was not good to Li. He does not deserve Li.” So, who does the surgeon deserve? “Li deserves someone like Bill,” Matsuda stated with a smile.

5. New Douglas Alert

On the cusp of a major new storyline revolving around Douglas’s custody, a casting change has been made in the role of Douglas Forrester. Look out for Django Ferri, who will debut in the role on Thursday, August 11th. Although he’s a newcomer to daytime television, Ferri has credits on prime time shows such as Hacks and American Horror Story. According to Soaps In Depth, the young actor is a permanent replacement for outgoing portrayer Henry Joseph Samiri.

4. Why Was Douglas Recast? 

The recasting of Douglas Forrester has upset some B&B fans, who are curious to know why Henry Joseph Samiri is exiting the role. The child actor was beloved for his clever portrayal of Douglas, and since the character is not being rapidly aged, the recast seems to be coming out of nowhere. Adding to the mystery, Soap Opera Digest reports that Django Ferri was originally brought in on a temporary basis because Samiri had a scheduling conflict. However, the arrangement quickly turned permanent, with no reason given for the switch.

3. Krista Allen On That Kiss

Never one to shy away from her character’s dilemmas, Krista Allen has weighed in on that kiss Taylor shared with Ridge in Monaco. “Taylor is not feeling much regret,” Allen revealed to SOD (as per “She’s like, ‘This is what’s happening. Things are evolving and things are changing,’ and she’s okay stepping into that because of what she’s getting from Ridge and what they are experiencing together.” But what does Allen say to the many Taylor fans who worry that Ridge will once again choose Brooke in the end? “We will see what happens,” she said evasively.

Viewers who are excited to catch a glimpse of Bridget Forrester on B&B should keep their eyes peeled, because actress Ashley Jones has two films coming to the Lifetime Movie Network. As Daytime Confidential reports, she’ll make her directorial debut with The Secret Lives of College Escorts, which premieres on August 19th.
