NBC Days of Our Lives just snubbed The Bold and the Beautiful. Co-executive producer Greg Meng discussed how certain storylines and scenes would have to be changed due to the new safety guidelines. He made it clear that they do not plan on ordering any blow-up dolls. Ouch! Find out what else Meng had to say.
Days Of Our Lives Spoilers – B&B’s Blow-Up Doll Statement Went Viral
Once it was announced that The Bold and the Beautiful would be resuming production, those in charge held several interviews with big-name publications. Forbes, The Hollywood Reporter, and many more all reported on it and some used direct quotes during their interviews.
While some believe it was an inside joke, no corrections have been published and nobody has outright denied the possibility. No “laugh” was inserted inside the quotations, which is a basic journalistic standard. Even SoapCentral asked Bradley Bell about the dolls during a post-Emmy award interview. With that being said, the soap will obviously do everything they can to use real human beings.
But, for the record, they actually do have a blow-up doll, which was originally used as a corpse. Never say never!

Once he learned about B&B’s blow-up dolls, he posted a picture of a Barbie doll that resembled his on-screen fiancee, Lani Price (Sal Stowers). He wrote, “Lani, is that you?!” It got a lot of laughs, but poking fun at the CBS soap isn’t quite over yet.
