Scene & Heard
B&B’S Heather Tom (Katie) reports that her son, Zane Achor (ex-will), 6, is well aware of what actors go through when they have to appear on television every day. “Here’s a perfect example,” she begins. “Not all that long ago, we went out to dinner one night, and this was when I was doing all those [sexy] role-playing scenes with Wyatt. Well, we had a love scene coming up, which pretty much means I don’t eat for, like, two weeks [laughs]. We went out to dinner and afterward, we all went out for ice cream. I, however, did not have any ice cream and Zane was like, ‘Mother, you absolutely must have some ice cream.’ I told him that I was going to pass and he said, ‘Why are you not having ice cream? You absolutely must!’ I said, ‘Well, I’m not having ice cream, honey, because I’m in my underwear this week,’ and he’s like, ‘Oh, right. Gotcha.’ At that moment, I realized two things: First, I clearly use the word ‘absolutely’ quite a bit because I’m sure he got that from me, and secondly, that my child was now probably going to go into school the next day and tell everyone, ‘My mom goes to work in her underwear.’ ”
B&B’S Heather says Zane knows all about the rigors of show biz.
