We hear that Anthony Turpel ( R. J.) has been taken off contract with B&B, less than two years after the teenager joined the cast as Brooke and Ridge’s SORAS’D son. While he likely won’t be back on the canvas, it is the show’s policy not to comment on actors’ contracts.
But R.J.’S absence from the Forrester intern program will be filled with two other youngsters. Nia Sioux — who spent seven seasons on Lifetime’s reality series, DANCE MOMS — debuts in the recurring role of Emma beginning Monday, April 23. That same day marks the return of Simon, played by Prince Achileas-andreas of Greece and Denmark. The nephew of Theodora Greece ( who plays Bill’s assistant, Alison), Andreas made his B&B debut back in December.
