Q. Were THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’S Hope and Liam ever legally married? I know they got married in Puglia, Italy, but for some reason, I think that wedding was annulled. Marnie via E-mail
A:You may be confusing Hope with her longtime rival, as it was Steffy and Liam who had their second marriage annulled after her motorcycle accident resulted in a miscarriage. Hope and Liam’s Italian wedding wasn’t annulled… because they were never really married in the first place! It came out that they never officially had a chance to sign the paperwork back in the states that would have made the union legit. Before they could, their relationship hit the skids and the two separated. So while Liam and the blonde have attempted to tie the knot on multiple occasions, Hope’s only true ex-husband is Wyatt, with whom she eloped in 2014 after she thought Liam had stood her up at the Eiffel Tower.
Q. I know I haven’t missed an episode of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS in a very long time, but I don’t understand why Billy poisoned the Brash & Sassy face masks. I’ve waited a while to write in order to see if that question would be answered, but it hasn’t! Why would he want to do that? P. Stein via E-mail A. Billy actually never personally poisoned the masks. In fact, nobody did. Instead, there was a problem with the formula used in producing the product, which is what caused Victoria — who was testing it on herself so they could rush it onto the market — to have headaches and act out of character. Because Billy was in charge of quality control for the line, Victoria blamed her ex for not doing his job properly and fired him on the spot! Q. I caught a rerun of LUCIFER and was excited to see Y&R’S Detective Harding in the episode! Does he have a recurring role? Allison Parker via E-mail A. Sadly, while Chris Mckenna was f e a t u red prominently as con man Ben Rivers, so far he hasn’t made any additional appearances. With that said, he did have amazing chemistry with series regular Lesley-anne Brandt, and hit it off with Lucifer himself, Tom Ellis. “‘ Smug’ and ‘mildly handsome’ are Tom’s nicknames for me,” Mckenna laughed on Twitter. “It’s endearing when he says it.” So let’s hope he pops up again!
