On yesterday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, soap fans were in for a treat with the return of Crystal Chappell to network television in her new role as Danielle.  As has been reported, Danielle is the long-time partner of Karen Spencer played by Joanna Johnson.

In key scenes introducing the couples long-time relationship, Caroline (Linsey Godfrey) wants to bring her beau, Thomas (Adam Gregory) home to meet her parents.   And while Thomas is looking forward to meeting her dad, there is no dad for her to show him!  After some banter, illustrating that Karen is uncomfortable with her life being exposed, she is finally put in a situation where Caroline, who is proud to have been raised by two moms, tells Thomas that Dani and Karen are her parents.

Of course, there were some blistery moments when Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) stops by the ladies beach house and notices pictures of the duo on the mantel over the fireplace.   Bill made his ‘as-expected’ smarmy comments and left, which then justified Karen’s fears that her brother can never know she is gay and has a partner, Danielle.

Now after the jump, watch the scenes with Crystal Chappell and Joanna Johnson and more and let us know what you thought of the introduction of this storyline to B&B!

In case anyone does not understand want I meant we have two good actresses I am expecting at last a grown up story and poof once again steffy/Liam/Hope. They don’t have to be discussed by everyone in LA but no Thomas had to bring them up, However I don’t like cc haircut she is attractive don’t try to make her otherwise BB.

The ladies were splendid but I can’t help but feel Adam Gregory over did it with the facial expressions.

Also, I like that they cut Chappell’s hair. Smart move.

I watched this and was struck first and foremost by the horrible stereo type used. I should have expected it from BB. First… I am do not mean to offend anyone… but why take a very attractive Crstal and make her look like a Ridge/boy. Her hair is dark and short and not attractively done and she is dressed like a guy. Why on a a show where they have beautiful people, clothes and money do they have to meke her look like the D*** word. She could have been attractive and well dressed. Venice shows two attractive females together… Read more »

My only issue was that they made Thomas just a little too dense with all the clues smacking him right in the face. I love CC and am so glad she is back on daytime TV. I’m really looking forward to this story. She is why a returned to B&B after a 6 month break. I’ve had enough of Steffi, Liam and Hope. I’m still FF thru those scenes!

Glad that CC is on B&B, really looking forward how this story will play off. Heidi and Kay i agree with both of you about the look they gave her, i like her more when she is dressed lady like she is too pretty to be dressed like this, So dear people of B&B hear our cry and dress CC the way it should be beautiful as she is. Thank you Mr. Fairman.

Why does CC have to look like a glamorpuss in every single thing she does? Perhaps y’all are the typecasting ones.

The introduction of this story line IMO, went very well. With a few comments thrown into the dialogue, we were given a fair amount of back info about Dani & Karen’s relationship, why Karen is reluctant to divulge the truth to Bill & Co, and so on. I also liked the informal setting. Dinner, them pottering around the kitchen, a long time friend over for dinner, etc, etc,. There was a very realistic feel to it. So happy to see CC back on daytime. I personally didn’t mind the way Danielle was dressed, but I would like to see them… Read more »

I’m a Crystal fan and she’ll do a good job in this role, but I agree that her hair is distractingly bad. Come on, Bold! I also didn’t think she had much chemistry with her co-star but that’s always an issue when they come on already as a couple and don’t let the actors build it up. Also looks like those two will only be touching foreheads.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
