THE WORLD OF SOAP… with Rebecca Lake

Who's missing from this picture?

Welcome to Soap World’s THE WORLD OF SOAP blog where no botox injection goes unnoticed and no case of Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome goes unpunished!

The goal of this blog is to look at the crazy, fun stories from daytime TV that we all know and love, and ask the REALLY important questions about them, like – why does B&B’s Brooke seem incapable of keeping her hands off her daughters’ boyfriends, or will Days of Our Lives’ Chloe Lane ever have more than one facial expression?!

    In this instalment, we look at… The Missing Children of B&B

    There must be some kind of Pied Piper on the loose in Soap Land, scooping up the under-ten set and spiriting them away to a mysterious day care centre from which they never seem to return – that is, until the storyline dictates that one of the adult characters needs to show a little parental care, and the littlies are wheeled out for twenty minutes to play quietly while the grownups get on with their real lives in the foreground.

    The Bold and the Beautiful is one of the biggest offenders when it comes to disappearing daytime darlings (or DDD’s, as we shall call them.) When was the last time anyone saw RJ Forrester? Or Thorne’s daughter Alexandria? Or baby Jack Marone? This last is the most disturbing of all the DDD’s – with Jack’s sailor papa, Nick Marone, currently boozing it on the Shady Marlin with the shady Aggie, poor little Jack could be stuck under a lobster trap somewhere on board and no-one would ever know!

    We know that the kids of Los Angeles can’t always be active participants in the drama and deception swirling around them – and nor would we want them to be, as that would land in Taylor’s psych practice before the age of ten – but it would be nice if we could see them more than twice a year, AND if we could get some sense of who they are before they inevitably succumb to the virulent rapid aging syndrome that has claimed so many of daytime’s kids.

    What do you think? Do you want to see more of B&B’s DDD’s? Send your comments to: soap@nextmedia.com.au

      I thought it was a really good move by B&B to age Hope, id like to see more of the other missing children RJ, Alexandria and Jack. It would be interesting if they were aged also.
