'The Bold And The Beautiful' Celebrates 25th Anniversary (VIDEO)

The beloved soap opera "The Bold and the Beautiful" celebrated its 25th anniversary on Monday, a particularly significant milestone in light of the fact that fellow soaps "All My Children" and "One Life To Live" saw their decades-long runs come to an end earlier this year.

"The Talk" (weekdays on CBS) gathered many of show's cast-members to celebrate the milestone. The guests included the soap's most seasoned veterans, Katherine Kelly Lang and and John McCook, who have each been on the "The Bold and the Beautiful" since it first premiered 25 years ago. "I'm proud, I feel blessed to be a part of something so wonderful," Lang said wistfully.

"It's almost the antithesis of being an actor: you're going to play the same part for 25 years. You go, 'No, actors are supposed to play many different roles,' and you think that can't be wonderful, but it really is," McCook reflected.

Later, "The Talk" wheeled out a giant celebratory cake, and actress Alley Mills popped out from inside of it, wielding her character Pam Douglas's infamous poisoned lemon bars. She offered them to the cast, but they knew better than to accept; fortunately "The Talk" had cake and champagne on hand to celebrate.
