This Friday, January 23, 2015, The Bold and the Beautiful is celebrating a milestone. It will air its 7000th episode. The show has been on the air since 1987 bringing the high fashion industry of Los Angeles to the airwaves along with all the trials and tribulations of some of the hottest characters on daytime TV. The show centers around the Forrester family, headed by patriarch, Eric Forrester (John McCook).
And who would have thought the show would still be going strong 28 years later and dominating in the ratings? "Certainly not I," said Lee Phillip Bell, co-creator of the show with her husband the late great William J. Bell. "I never thought the show would go as long as it has, and I am thrilled that people enjoy watching it."
