Back! The Wagners Reunite: In a surprising move, soap vets Jack and
Kristina Wagner have reconciled. The popular pair, who married in 1993 and split
in 2001, filed for divorce, but never signed the papers. They have two sons,
Peter, 14, and Harrison, 10.
The pair recently arranged an exclusive photo shoot to celebrate their
reconciliation and, at press time, were attending the 44th Annual Monte Carlo
Television Festival in Monaco- their first public appearance together since the
split. A spokesperson for the duo would only say, "They prefer to keep
their private lives private."
In the 6/1/04 issue, Kristina, who recently returned to GH, her home from
1984-2003, stated that their time apart, "was a rough time. But as down as
I can be, it never feels hopeless."
Addressing his commitment to his family, Wanger said in the 3/18/03 issue,
"Kristina and I are still married. I've coached every team [the boys] have
been on and have been at every game. I hated being away. My kids are at the
point where I'm a moral compass for them. God help them both." Says one
insider, "I hope they make it. Who doesn't love a happy ending?" (SOD

New "Secret Weapon":
B&B has big plans for its high-profile cast addition, Jack Wagner-
but just how big? "He's their new secret weapon," whispers a
setside source. "[Executive Producer/Head Writer] Brad Bell want to
really re-energize the show, and he feels that Jack will be the person
to do it. He already has a huge followin, and he's going to be given
some great story. He'll be making a dramatic entrance!" As
previously reported, Wagner's character, tentatively named Dominick,
will come on board as Massimo's former stepson. "Brad has been
wanting to flesh out Massimo's background," says the insider.
"The connection to his ex-wife's son will be intense, and these
guys being around each other will cause some complications- but not
necessarily bad ones."
Online, B&B fans are already sharing their feelings about his
imminent arrival: "He's been a favorite of mine ever since
GH," writes one. Another adds, "He'll fit right in."
However, some are expressing concern about the fate of non-Forresters on
B&B- Rick Hearst and Courtnee Draper all were written out in a
matter of months. "[Wagner will] be hitting the door in six months
or less," predicts one viewer. Still, the buzz Wagner is generating
bodes well. Only time (and Bell) will tell.
