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 on or out. There are possibilities with integrating a new family into the mix, caught up in a web of baby switch lies. Maybe Liam, Steffy, Hope and their two daughters can be spun off onto a reality sister wives show and be done. I understand why the story line is playing out as it echoes the first generation of tale telling, but I would like this baby switch story line to bring to a close some of the endless roundelay with these characters… (and their parents!!!!).

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.

She does not seem old enough to be Flo’s mother!

Denise : let go … MOVE that contract @B&B you have nothing to lose.. and this vim and vigor will enlighten your RHOBH. it truly will

Denise Richards moment

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 going to wind up back with Bill. Maybe, maybe not. Just speculating. But they need to pick things up a bit

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 do everything else

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

Later.

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.

It appears it’s time to say goodbye to our Caroline Spencer. I just want to first say a huge thank you to Brad Bell (executive producer/head writer) and the entire Bold and the Beautiful family. I truly adored every aspect of the wacky, feisty, sassy Caroline. I loved my time at Bold! Don’y be sad, even though she is gone, I promise Brad and the writers have some awesome drama up their sleeves for you! Thank you for all your support and love over the years! Don’t worry I hear Caroline has a brunette doppelgänger over in Salem, might be worth investigating.”

Check out a couple of clips below from B&B featuring Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope (Annika Noelle) learning the news of Caroline’s death and Matthew Atkinson’s debut as Thomas.

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin Are Among Dozens Charged In Alleged College Admissions Scandal For Their Kids

On Tuesday, two women very familiar to soap audiences, actresses Felicity Huffman (Ex-Lynette, Desperate Housewives) and Lori Loughlin (Ex-Jodie, Edge of Night) are among dozens of wealthy parents, elite college coaches and college prep executives accused of carrying out a nationwide fraud to get students into prestigious colleges, according to a massive federal indictment that has been handed down.

According to prosecutors, the scheme was in two parts: either parents allegedly paid a college prep organization to take the test on behalf of students or to correct their answers.  Then, the organization allegedly bribed college coaches to help admit the students into college as recruited athletes, regardless of their actual abilities.  The documents also allege that some defendants created fake athletic profiles for students to make them appear to be successful athletes.

CNN is reporting: “As of now, 50 people were charged in the criminal investigation that went by the name ‘Operation Varsity Blues.”‘ Those arrested include two SAT/ACT administrators, one exam proctor, nine coaches at elite schools, one college administrator and 33 parents, according to Andrew Lelling, the US attorney for Massachusetts.

The parents were alleged to be from a “catalog of wealth and privilege,” including actors, CEOs, a fashion designer and the co-chairman of a global law firm.  “This case is about the widening corruption of elite college admissions through the steady application of wealth combined with fraud. There can be no separate college admission system for the wealthy,” stated Lelling.

As to Huffman and Loughlin’s parts in the scandal: Felicity has been charged with felony conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.  She was arrested without incident at her home.   Huffman is accused of paying $15,000 to William Rick Singer’s fake charity the Key Worldwide Foundation to facilitate cheating for her daughter on the SATs, the complaint says.   Another cooperating witness told authorities he purportedly traveled from Tampa to a West Hollywood Test Center to administer Huffman’s daughter’s exam.  She received a 1420 on her test, which was 400 points higher than a PSAT taken a year earlier without the same administrator, the complaint states.

Loughlin, best known to TV audiences as Becky on Full House, and now its reboot, Fuller House. is facing the same felony charge: conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.  Her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, was also charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

According to documents, the duo allegedly agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team, even though they did not participate in crew, the complaint said.   The complaint includes emails between Singer and Giannulli in which the two discussed a “game plan” for his older daughter, whose academic qualifications were at or below the “low-end” of USC’s admission standards.  Singer facilitated bribes to Donna Heinel, the senior associate athletic director at USC, who then got the students in to USC as recruited athletes, according to the complaint.

Giannulli was arrested without incident, and the FBI served a warrant for Loughlin, but she was not home at the time. She is on a flight to Los Angeles where she is expected to surrender at the Central District Court later this afternoon.

So, what do you think about this shocker involving Huffman and Loughlin, and the corruption via the those of privilege, wealth, and status? Share your thoughts on this developing story via the comment section below.
