Crystal Chappell & Joanna Johnson Return To B&B For Short Story Arc!

L. Bohm & K Hutchins

L. Bohm & K Hutchins

Finally fans will get to see Crystal Chappell and Joanna Johnson together again as same-sex couple Dani and Karen on The Bold and the Beautiful!

According to CBS Soaps In Depth, the duo will return for a short story arc beginning January 3rd. Will it be to help their daughter, Caroline (Linsey Godfrey)? Or, something else?

As fans know, the much heralded arrival of Chappell to be the other half of Johnson’s Karen Spencer had to be cut short, when Joanna ended up having to put all her energy into the new primetime drama, Emily Owens M.D. in which she was the co-executive producer. 

Emily Owens M.D. starred Mamie Gummer, the daughter of movie legend Meryl Streep.  However, the series was just canceled by the CW,  which now would hopefully free up Johnson to come back to B&B for a bit and to play out future story with Chappell.  So, are you looking forward to seeing Crystal and Joanna on B&B? What do you think will be their short story arc? Weigh-in!

Haha! In the few months I’ve been watching the show, I think I’ve seen (only) one scene with them, so at least I know who they are.

Yes, I’m looking forward to seeing them. I was just thinking about them the other day. Hopefully they can talk some sense into Caroline. She and Rick are moving pretty fast. Or maybe stuff happened off-screen. And I look forward to scenes with Bill. Sorry her show got cancelled, but glad she can be on B&B.

Why do you make this such a big story? B&B abandoned this story MONTHS and MONTHS ago, as I knew they would. I get that one half had a commitment to another show which couldn’t be avoided. But they dropped the other half too, when they could have kept her on screen for appearances. So what gives? Why report a short arc of two characters that will be nothing and go nowhere?

I have such low hopes, that’s pretty obvious. I just don’t understand why others have high ones.

who cares? Unless they are going to put Hope on the back burner there isnt much hope for anyone else’s future, pun intended.

Not sure what a short story arc is but I’m Always happy to see Crystal on my screen. I hope her story line has some substance and doesnt follow the line of over-involved parent with no life of their own as this show seems to be fond of. Chappell got chops! Use them B&B : )

Anything that Crystal Chappell is involved in is fresh, exciting, explosive and brilliant. I know we’ll be in for a huge treat. She has the ability to stand out from the rest of the cast, whether its Days, BnB and whatever she’s involved in. She walked onto Days in 09 and raised the dead…oops 😡 Then she left and it broke our hearts. But she’s BACK BABY with a BANG on BnB! 🙂

Mark, take your head out of CC’s ass. You are doing her no favors. This is a blip of a story arc on a show that has no interest in focusing on any other characters but Steffi, Hope, & Liam. CC is a good actress, not the second coming…

I wish it were long, instead of a short story arc… but I’m happy I’ll be seeing Crystal on TV again. I’ve so missed her presence there. I’m glad Joanna is back, but I will never understand why B&B had someone as brilliant as Crystal sitting on the bench during the months JJ was gone. Just doesn’t make sense to me.

I’m happy they’re back. Didn’t think JJ should have left in the first place. I could tell Emily Owens would get canceled before it even started. What I’m not happy about is a SHORT story arc. What?! There was so much hype about their story when it first started and we got like 4 or 5 episodes before JJ left. Then we waited all this time for them to use Crystal, who was only in one episode without JJ, only for them to finally use her now that JJ came back for a short story arc?? I want a LONG… Read more »

Can’t wait to see Crystal again. Sorry it’s a short arc. Do you not know you have had the two greatest daytime actresses ever, on your show, Susan Flannery and Crystal Chappell. We have lost Susan and you have been wasting CC’s beauty and her tremendous acting ability. The story line for her is good but it has to be developed with or without JJ. She is a valuable asset to B&B. DO NOT WASTE IT !!!. I will never miss an episode as long as she’s on B&B.

Let’s all get real here folks, it’s Daytime…players come and go and so do our favorite actors and actresses, whether we like it or not! So many of us have followed both Crystal’s and Joanna’s careers for years, so having them on the screen to tell this important story is what we’ve looked forward to. Whether B&B decides to tell it now or later, let’s be thankful that the idea is still on the canvas. We’ve proved time and again that we’re not a very patient lot, so if they tease us with this story we’ll be expecting more. They… Read more »

I am soo ready to see more of the “Caroline’s Two Mommies” story. Crystal Chappell, Joanna Johnson and Linsey Godfrey are all AMAZING actresses and I know they will rock this story. Danielle and Karen have been living their lives in private for years. It’s time family and friends are enlightened and accept them as a loving and devoted couple. I can’t wait to see more DaniKa on my tv screen !!!

Lori Loughlin To Make Holiday Movie For Great American Family

Lori Loughlin (Ex-EON and Full House) will be making a holiday movie for Great American Family. Look for production to start later this year.

The announcement of the upcoming Christas pic follows on the heels of Loughlin’s Fall Into Winter which dropped on January 28th on GAF.

The movie marked Lori’s first romantic comedy screen appearance since serving time in 2020 for her part in the college admissions scandal. She returned to acting after her prison time, and after being let go by the Hallmark Channel in When Hope Calls which was a spinoff of When Calls the Heart.

Bill Abbott, President and CEO of Great American Media had previously shared: “Lori is a genre-defining star that I have had the honor to call a close friend and collaborator for more than 15 years. We have a shared vision for creating meaningful and memorable movies that resonate with our passionate fans, and I look forward to welcoming her back to Great American Family to anchor our 2023 winter programming slate.”

So what do you think of a Lori Loughlin/Great American Family holiday film on the way for later in 2023? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
