Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: He Was Voted As The Number One Sexiest Hunk On The Sexiest Soap Hunks Of All Time List
Diamont’s 35 years on the CBS daytime drama proved to be extremely successful. He was voted as the number one sexiest hunk on the Sexiest Soap Hunks of All Time List at the Shrine to the Soap Hunks. He was on the cover of Playgirl magazine twice in 1988 and 1995.
Unfortunely, due to the coronavirus and social distancing, Diamont is restricted in a sense. While the original plan would’ve been to celebrate his big day at work, he can’t due to the fact that production has been halted for a while. In speaking with EW, he told them, “Breaking my TV son’s balls! I love my cast mates. I
just miss interacting with them on a daily basis. I guess what I definitely miss is just walking into that studio. I’ve been walking in there for 35 years. I never take that for granted. I am always aware of how lucky I am. It has gone by in the blink of an eye, but there’s a whole lot of life that has taken place there over 35 years.”
