Rick Hearst The Bold and the Beautiful fans tweet support/ideas with the tag: #PoorWhipNeedsAStory

Rick Hearst @Wildmook has a great article in @Soap Opera Digest , unfortunately the cover features the cancellations of All My Children, OLTL & the Dying Soap Industustry...But Rick is currently Whipple Jones III on The Bold and the Beautiful and the article is great! :)

Whip (Rick Hearst) Mentioned in Brad Bell's May 2011 The Bold and the Beautiful Sweeps preview:
Taylor’s involvement with Ridge in an intense matter of life or death has a great impact on her.  The two solidify their powerful bond. Whip can’t help being aware of how much time Taylor is spending with her ex, and the old jealousies begin to re-surface. http://www.boldandbeautiful.com/index.cfm?pk=view&cd=NAA&cdid=434291&pid=413769&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter042211

Totally agree with CBS Soaps In Depth Official PageI really don't like that we only see Rick Hearst's Whip (@wildmook) in the opening credits these days. Whip/Taylor marriage needs explored! but glad Rick Hearst will be featured in the April 11 issue-- cant wait!

Week of Dec 24, 2010:
Congrats to Weekly's Applause winner, B&B's Rick Hearst (@):
Congrats, Rick! Well Deserved! :)

From the Rick Hearst @Wildmook fan club:
We hope you've been enjoying this new turn in the Whip/Taylor relationship, and Whip stepping up to defend himself and his relationship with Taylor.  Rick has done an amazing job with all of this, and it's been a lot of fun to see him get his "edge" back and in full force. Soap Digest has a new poll up, asking for your opinion of Whip and Taylor, and we'd appreciate your participation. 
Here's this week's question:
Would you like to see B&B's Whip and Taylor together?
Yes! They have great chemistry.
No. Taylor will always put Ridge first and will never truly give herself to Whip.
Vote at www.soapoperadigest.com/insiderpoll/index.html. Check back next week for the results.
Click the link, cast your vote, and let's see what happens!!
You can also go to leave a Tweet for Rick, letting him know your feelings, at www.Twitter.com/wildmook or writing to him in care of the studio.

Hi everyone!
At a fan lunch a few weeks ago, Chris C came up with a great idea for an email campaign for Rick.  I'm passing it along to all of you to join in on, as it sounds like a lot of fun.  Chris also presented Rick with Craig Ferguson's book that day, which he immediately began reading and absolutely loved, so this seems like a campaign custom made for our Rick.  Details directly from Chris are as follows:
This is how I explained it to the few I e-mailed it to:
I've come up with an e-mail campaign to possibly get RH on Craig Ferguson's show.  Daniel  McVicar (BB) has been on numerous times (17, according to his site) and I'm asking for RH to be able to join McVicar the next time he pops in on Craig. 
I told Rick at FCW now that he's a CBS employee again, I wanted to get him on Craig's show!!
All we have to do is send an e-mail, every day, to CBS, saying: 
"Daniel McVicar Needs a Cohort on His Next Visit With Craig"
Hi Craig.  I love the skits with Daniel McVicar.  Do you think you'd consider letting actor Rick Hearst join in on the fun?  Rick Hearst used to be on "The Bold and the Beautiful" (CBS) years ago and has recently returned to show as Whipple "Whip" Jones.  You'd make a lot of soap fans happy!!  (And, yes, his character's name is really Whip!!)
To send, please log on to: http://www.cbs.com/late_late_show/. Then click"Email Craig.  Send every day (or as much as you can), using one of these subject lines -- you're typing in fields, no room for an actual subject line:
  • Daniel McVicar Needs a Cohort on His Next Visit With Craig; or
  • Daniel McVicar/Rick Hearst -- The Bold and the Beautiful Campaign (or make up your own if you're familiar with Craig's show) 
So go, join in the fun, and let's get Rick booked on late night!!
Do you have an idea for what to do for Rick?  Share your ideas!  Let's get some fun things started!!
Happy Holidays!

Be sure to check out the latest ABC issue of Soaps In Depth for the exclusive first interview with Riegel about her return — on sale Monday, September 22.

 Ric – And Rick – Are Sticking Around!

Hearst has renewed his lease in Port Charles.
GENERAL HOSPITAL's Rick Hearst (Ric) has signed a new deal with the soap "to continue with GH for the forseeable future," says a show spokesperson. Earlier this summer, as his previous contract neared its end, Hearst spoke rather candidly about his feelings Ric and his hopes for his alter ego's future in Port Charles. Now that he's renewed his contract, it sounds like maybe some of those wishes may come true!
