B&B Hairstylist Sues Producers For Defamation

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL principal hairstylist Carlos Pelz has sued the show claiming Bell-Phillip Television Productions and its senior supervisor, Ron Weaver, defamed him in a memo that called him lazy, incompetent and uncaring.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pelz says in a complaint filed on Thursday in LA Superior Court that actors don't become Bold and Beautiful by accident. He points to Emmy award wins in 2009 and 2010 for various technical and artistic excellence.

The hairstylist claims this job performance review constitutes libel and caused him to suffer emotional distress, anxiety, embarrassment, shame and humiliation. He's asking a court to award unspecified damages for the buzz cut.
