NEWS ROUNDUP: B&B's Italian Wedding, Tracey E. Bregman In The Bumpers, BUFFY Marathon

PHOTOS: That's Amore! The cast of THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL film wedding in Italy
Perched on the rocky cliffs high above the Adriatic Sea, Scott Clifton and Kimberly Matula donned bridal wear to act out Liam Spencer and Hope Logan's romantic wedding scenes last Tuesday.

The wedding procession was shot at the center of the piazza where a statue of Italian singer-songwriter Domenico Modugno rests, and the soap is making sure to use Modugno's song 'Volare' during the important episode.

Images from the set revealed a series of padlocks bearing their character's names hanging on a fence as a symbolic 'promise of their love.'

Offscreen, the soap's 'newlyweds' spent time canoodling with their real-life partners.

Fifty years and 4.5 million meals later ...
Rosa Bundrage graduated from high school on a May day just like this one 50 years ago. At 5:30 a.m. every morning, Rosa climbs behind the wheel of her black Nissan Murano and drives through the streets of Macon by the dawn’s early light. Her destination is Rutland High School, where she and cafeteria manager Sharon Manning start getting ready for the students who begin arriving for breakfast.

As soon as the breakfast rush is over, it is time to prepare for lunch. By 1 p.m, when the last tray is put away, she will have helped serve 500 breakfasts and 1,800 lunches to the students, faculty and staff at Rutland high and middle schools.

If she’s lucky, she can be out the door by 1:15 and make it home in time to watch THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, her favorite soap opera.

Jesse Metcalfe originally auditioned for John Ross in DALLAS but landed the role Christopher
"I had done an audition for John Ross and there was some interest there, and we were going to negotiate a test deal. But they decided to test Josh Henderson and they held on to him for the role. I think that's just great casting and perfect. When they came back to me for Christopher, I was thrilled because I really identified with that character even more."
