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

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 !!!

TONIGHT: 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards on CBS

Who will take home the gold at Sunday night’s 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards?  Well, from the looks of it .two heavy favorites going into it are Ted Lasso in the comedy categories, and The Crown in the dramatic categories, but as we have seen on previous Emmys there may be upsets afoot.

Other leading contenders through the night will include the series: The Mandalorian, WandaVision, The Handmaid’s Tale, Saturday Night Live, Lovecraft CountryThe Queen’s Gambit and Mare of Easttown.

Cedric the Entertainer will host the three-hour special on CBS beginning at 8 pm EST emanating from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.  Pandemic and all there will be a return to an opening number.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

One Life to Live alum Renée  Elise Goldsberry (Ex-Evangeline) will be competing in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in Hamilton.  Another OLTL alum, Jonathan Groff (Ex-Henry), is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for his role in Hamilton, as well.

In the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, Sterling K. Brown tries to win another Emmy for his role as Randall Pearson on This Is Us.   To view all the nominees, head on over to the TV Academy’s website.

This past June, CBS also aired the 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in a pre-packaged show for broadcast due to Covid-19 restrictions.

So, who are you rooting for to win the gold at the 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
