Rocco's back and in rare form!


Bryan Genesse (Rocco, Bold and the Beautiful)Bryan Genesse returns to "The Bold and the Beautiful" with episodes that begin airing on March 12.  Genesse will reprise his role as Rocco Carner on the number one watched daily drama in the world.  Yes, you can go home again. 

When Genesse last portrayed Rocco, he was involved with sisters Katie and Donna Logan in a bittersweet love triangle that included unrequited love, heroics, betrayal, and a proposal of marriage meant for one sister but mistakenly made to the other.  Viewers will be surprised to learn where Rocco has been all these years, how he’s stayed connected to the powerful Forrester family, and why he’s returned.  The episodes begin taping this week. "Truly, this is a homecoming for me.  Brad Bell is such a talented producer/ writer and he gave me my first big break by creating the role and casting me as Rocco Carner.  It's my privilege to go back home to 'B & B' to reprise my favorite role because I know the writers will make it an exhilarating roller coaster ride that I hope lasts a long, long time."

Genesse was busy in real life in the intervening years writing and producing and starring in action feature films like "The Alternate" for Nu Image, "Bad Guys," which he directed as well, and "Fire," during which he suffered severe injuries.  Genesse starred in HBO's "A Body to Die For" with Ben Affleck and co-starred in Fox's Blake Edwards' comedy, "Skin Deep," opposite John Ritter in the still infamous condom scene.  Genesse also starred in the prime time television series "Street Justice" for Stephen J. Cannell and "Cold Squad."  "I have been fortunate to work all over the world and to this day, fans in every country come up to me excited to see Rocco and ask about the show." 

Genesse and his actress/wife, Brooke Theiss Genesse, have also been happily busy raising son Mitchell, 13, and daughter Aubrey, 3 months.

Days of our Lives Patsy Pease says Kim is her best friend

Patsy Pease has been playing Kimberly Brady on Days of our Lives since 1984 and has never looked back with any regret.

"Oh no! The story has been a hot mess like life. She is my best friend. It's a parallel love," Pease laughs. "After 30 years, I have met many friends and friendships have developed because of the show."

Back in the 1980's, Pease along with Charles Shaughnessy (ex-Shane) were one of the hottest couples on daytime TV. They come from the era when the soaps had the "Super Couples" and they were at the top of the list.
