The truth behind Ronn's leaving
Our girl dropped by my brother's shop today. She said that tempers have been brewing for weeks and weeks on the set and that Ronn felt shoved aside by Brad, that he's said something to him more than once. Before they went to July break, Ronn was telling people that he wasn't happy with what was going on, that his wife and he went to Brad about a storyline for Bridge that included Deacon Sharpe coming back and trouble for Bridge. (I remember typing that too, weeks and weeks ago, that Ronn was fine with it and actually wanted it, but KKL said hell no). Well, Brad said again weeks ago before break that he was going to bring back Sean Kanan due to huge fan influence and once again, Kelly Lang said if he came, she was leaving. Ronn and her actually got into a fight on the set, arguing about it. Kelly wants Brooke to be redeemed, to be the matriarch of the Forrester and Logan famillies and be like Stephanie. Ronn felt that it's not what the fans wanted to see. They got over it quickly and were kissing and making up afterwords.
That's not what made Ronn decide to bolt, though. Ronn's hairdresser heard him on the phone with his wife, saying that they can't and won't get rid of Ridge Forrester, the heir to Forrester Creations, and that all he has to do is wait it out or walk and they'll change their minds and his salary will remain the same. He told her that until they come around, he's got his music to keep him busy for a few months and some tours to do overseas and a PILOT for a new show in Australia and if he gets it, he's moving overseas anyway.
Ronn's also upset that several of the venues he and his band set up to play at cancelled on him because ticket sales weren't hot at all, they didn't want to lose money on him. His new album is coming out but pre-sales have been disappointing here, but great overseas. It's no secret that Ronn loves overseas and hates America and the only thing that's kept him here is his daughters, he said.
Today was some seriously wild taping, they were handed scripts this morning going a totally different direction than Brad wanted to go, and everyone's going to be shocked about how Ridge is going to go out. He's not going to die, let's say that, she said. They are filming his last on screen episode tomorrow and already the security IS SO TIGHT on the set that everyone was frisked for microphones, cell phones, anything that could pick up any pictures or sounds and had to sign forms saying if anyone leaked anything out and it was found out who it was, they would be SUED immediately and put in jail for theft of property.
Our girl's not worried, though, everyone on set knows what's going on anyway. Ridge doesn't die, and how he leaves is going to be WILD. So just remember that, she said, he doesn't die.
KKL was a crying jag on the set today, she could barely get through her lines. She complained that without Ridge, Bridge was nothing, and Bridge is supposed to be the supercouple and she DID NOT want to start up a new romance or relationship with anyone else. Brad practically lost his temper and told her to go to her dressing room and pull herself together, nobody liked Ronn leaving but it's a soap opera, it's his show, and he's going to do whatever he has to in order to save it. Word has it that either Jack Wagner or Sean Kanan is coming back and going to be paired with Brooke, Brad is leaning to Sean Kanan because of the Hope connection and because Jack Wagner had a life with Taylor and Brad would rather Brooke be paired up with someone that HAS NOT been with Taylor. He wants to take taylor in a new direction soon as the head of the Forrester family up against Brooke who thinks SHE should be the head of the family because YES, Susan Flannery HAS ALSO said she's leaving as well. She said she'd rather step back and help direct to save the show, to turn it over to the younger generation. She did request that Brad end the triangle and he has. It's going to die.https://www.facebook.com/groups/191396427577613/pe...
