Looks like Aaron Phypers doesn’t have to rely only on paychecks from
his wife rich folks looking to heal themselves via radio frequencies anymore! Thanks to his beloved, Denise Richards, Aaron can now call himself a soap opera star. Aaron has already made himself quite known on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. His dinner party conversation is only decipherable after 9 shots of tequila or a trip to the local dispensary.
While the entertainment industry is finding it’s legs and putting shows back on television, certain changes will go into effect to ensure the safety of cast and crews. Reality television can proceed with adjustments, but scripted programs will present specific issues. Namely, close contact with people you don’t live with and… dun, dun, duuuun, love scenes. As Denise returns to the set of The Bold & The Beautiful, she explains how intimate scenes during a pandemic will go down.
Aaron is being called for duty, but for the love of Jesus and Dolly Parton, I hope no one asks him about his other job. Filming has resumed on The Bold & The Beautiful and Denise’s husband has joined the long-running soap as a stand-in. Denise’s character has a love interest, but COVID-19 has put a damper on kissy segments. In an effort to continue storylines and keep the audience entertained, actors are using their real-life partners to remain safe under new guidelines.
This is actually pretty brilliant, as long as no one’s significant other is hoping for a daytime Emmy. Denise told HollywoodLife how shows are getting around one of the most integral parts of a soap opera, the love scenes.

She said, “If there are more than two actors, we have mannequins. If there is an intimate scene, they’ve asked us if our significant other can step in for that person. Otherwise, we’ll be doing a love scene with a doll.”
I’m sure some of these dolls have more personality than the person they are replacing, so it might be a nice change of pace. All kidding aside, it’s great to see the care and consideration going into making sure everyone involved remains safe.

Denise is having Aaron step in in for her character’s boyfriend, instead of using a doll. Great choice, but at least the doll wouldn’t speculate about being followed because of controversial medical practices. Denise said, “He [Aaron] is standing in. And, he came with me today [July 7].” She explained, “Every week we’re tested [for COVID-19].”
Apparently, Aaron took a COVID test the first day he showed up. No word on whether or not his frequencies were tested as well. Denise confirmed, “Every week the whole cast [is tested]. He [Aaron] starts standing in next week.”

Denise is “excited” to get back to work and praised the show’s producers for implementing a “very safe environment”. It will be interesting to see how Hollywood navigates the new standards of filming in a pandemic setting. The back of Aaron’s head will surely be a great addition to the cast, and he’s helping his wife. As long as no one challenges Aaron’s knowledge of
sound waves holistic medicine or mentions quantum energy fields, this has the potential to work out well.
