Denise Richards Joins The Cast Of The Bold and the Beautiful

Photo: HutchinsPhoto.com

Looks Like Denise Richards will be pulling double duty! After recently joining the new season of Bravo’s hit reality show franchise, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the actress has also joined CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful.

In casting news out of PEOPLE.com, Richards is set to play Flo’s mom (Katrina Bowden), Shauna Fulton.

Richards is joining B&B in a contract role.  What we do know from the series EP and head writer, Brad Bell as told to PEOPLE: “Shauna is a fun-loving, hard-working single mother from Las Vegas who aspires to live life to its absolute fullest. She heads for Los Angeles when she learns that her daughter, Florence ‘Flo’, the pride and joy of her life, is entangled in a complicated situation. However, Shauna’s involvement won’t stop there. She’s got a past and big secrets to spill.”

Look for Denise to start her B&B adventure taping all-new episodes this Friday with her debut on April 3.

In the meantime you can catch Richards on RHOBH as their season kicked-off last week on February 12th.

I have to laugh when I see the program descriptions for “The Bold and the Beautiful” on my onscreen guide. I don’t even recognize the names of the characters mentioned — especially this Flo. I deduce she is part of the baby storyline but don’t care enough to actually tune in, lol.

What the heck is up with Brad Bell???

Why? Are there gaps in storytelling? Are there characters soon to leave Los Angeles? B&B has all the hallmarks of a strong soap. The city, glamorous businesses (fashion and publishing), the family feuds and ties all give B&B such potential, yet… I just find the epic replays of plots and relationships tiresome. Everything seems played for the short term with no long-term thought. Perhaps this is the new way for daytime drama. I want to see characters grow and change, or at least try to. Anyone would think after years of the same dance, he or she would just move… Read more »

ENOUGH WITH THE STUNT CASTING! It’s about damn time Brad Bell got recast as EP/HW.

In conclusion: this is stunt casting in the hopes of luring viewers, and Brad Bell needs to be replaced in both of his positions.

Why can’t Brad just utilize the cast that he currently has? He’s adding too many new people to the cast and many members of the cast who’ve been there a long time are not getting storylines. Denise Richards is useless as an old rug.

This is just nutty stuff. Instead of the constant stunt casting they should try writing some well thought-out stories rooted in some kind of reality.

I think D.R will be a good addition. They are over-run with blondes already, how could one more hurt. She also looks like she could be Donna’s sister, but also a good fit as Flo’s mom.

I was thinking the same thing. I also think, judging by the above photo, she kind of looks like Grace from Y&R. I think the three of them could pass for sisters. I also think it’s time for this baby story to pick up a bit. I’m hoping the return of Thomas doesn’t mean the end for Sally and Wyatt. Love them ss a couple. I just wish we could see more of them. And now that Donna is back, I think she should start hanging out with Justin. And you know after hemming and hawing for awhile, Katie is… Read more »

I don’t mean for the character of Hope to perk up. I am just saying, I hope they don’t drag the secret on forever. I’m tired of looking at Steffie’s smug face. Hope deserves some happiness for a change

I guess you do not know that Grace from YR and Donna are the same actress.

None of this matters in the long run. Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t B&B bring on Kimberlin Brown last year in one of the most iconic soap roles in history, Shelia? There was much fanfare (as there was with Ingo and Thorne) and now, unless I’m mistaken, the actress and her character have just evaporated with no explanation. B&B casting news is irrelevant because the writing does not support the majority of the cast members.

I don’t watch this daytime series, but damn, Denise Richards just looks super odd and unnatural. I guess she will fit in perfectly with Hunter Tylo.

Brad Bell…ENOUGH with the truly dumb stunt casting already!!!!! I was never a fan of Demise Richards…or her acting. Instead…PLEASE brink back Amber, Felicia and Tawny.

Problem solved.

Amber was my absolute favorite. Now that Justin is trying to pair up with Donna again (and I hope they do), they should bring Amber and Marcus back so Donna and Justin. Can be doting grandparents together. As always, they bring in new characters for about 5 minutes, and then they start focusing on the usuals again. I just hope that when Thomas comes back, they don’t use him to break up Sally and Wyatt I have always liked him and I think him and Sally are a good fit. But of course they will probably ruin it like they… Read more »

Quick corrections: Denise and bring…and not Demise and brink. My bad.

Don’t know that we need to flush Flo out more. I thought she was on her way back to Vegas.

I was hoping that the baby stealer was also gone, and back to opening doors on Let’s Make A Deal, and hawking magazines for PCH. His acting was a lot better on Whose Line Is It Anyway?, with Drew Carey and cohorts.

Denise Richards joining B&B…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! OK…you know what: From what I’ve heard (and read) about DR over the years, she is nothing but A DEMANDING DIVA!!!!! B&B…ya’ll have no idea what ya’ll are in for. None.

Later ya’ll.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
