Sneak Peek: Rick and Maya's Wedding on 'The Bold and the Beautiful' (Spoilers)

Maya interrupts her wedding to confront her father.
The wedding of Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) and Maya Avant (Karla Mosley) begins Monday, August 10 on CBS soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful. But like many a soap opera wedding, including this one for television’s first transgender character to exchange vows, the celebration will include some intense family drama.

In the sneak peek clip below, the wedding is interrupted when Maya confronts her conservative father Julius (Obba Babatunde) about his feelings toward her transition.

"I will not be publicly embarrassed by my own flesh and blood!" Julius says, adding he's there to give her away.

"You can't give away something you've already thrown away," Maya tells her father.

Watch below:

Maya’s transition was first revealed in March on B&B.

“Karla Mosley has been brilliant in the role of transgender model Maya Avant,” executive producer and head writer Bradley Bell told “When I first explained the story, she eagerly jumped on board and away we went. My writing and producing team, along with the actors have collaborated with GLAAD on scripts and media training. It’s been an honor to tell this positive story of love and acceptance and now we will see the drama peak as we reach Rick and Maya’s wedding day, which will not be an easy walk down the aisle."

  1. I'm happy the wedding seems to be happening. I was worried on Friday that Maya was run off after hearing her father.
