Donna Logan is coming on to the canvas of The Bold and the Beautiful for a special occasion, according to Soap Opera Digest.  That means that actress Jennifer Gareis will reprise her role as Katie (Heather Tom) and Brooke’s (Katherine Kelly Lang) sexy sis!

Gareis will appear on the October 20th episode of the CBS Daytime sudser.  B&B viewers last saw Gareis back in 2015 during the second go-round nuptials of Bill (Don Diamont) and Katie.

Although B&B is being tight-lipped as to the event that brings Donna back to Los Angeles, word is that this time Gareis might be sticking around much longer than just a brief appearance.

So, what do you think brings Donna back to the canvas?  How would you like to see B&B utliize Jennifer Gareis in story? Who could be a love interest for Donna? Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below!

She coming back either for Brill’s Wedding or Eric’s Funeral.

G-R-E-A-T!!!!!!!!!! Now bring Donna back to the B&B canvas…PERMANENTLY!!!!!!!!!!

Just saying……….

going to be interesting to see Donna and Quinn go at it. I hope they don’t make it short term just until Eric’s situation is cleared up. I always loved Donna. I miss her and Pam going at it. It would be interesting to see Donna and Pam tag team Quinn

I would LOVE to see that, former enemies teaming up for a very good reason, someone they both love is clearly in danger!

Very happy; I love Donna.

Ditto

This is just awesome news!!! Want Donna to
Return and get her honeybear back! Jennifer is such
Great actress she should be back as one of the Logan
Sisters. She could help her sisters.GIVE HER A
STORYLINE BB please!

Good, donna needs to be on B&B for good!!! they could definitely use her.

I am not sure there is much to do with the Donna Logan Forrester character. I think her romance/marriage with Eric — though solid B&B history — was dumb plotting from the beginning. I would prefer a focus on the Forresters, Felicia and Thorne anyone? It is still core family folks but we would get a fresh perspective on life in the fast fashion line.

And does anyone else think Eric’s illness came on way too quickly? Does anyone write a simmering story anymore (not to be confused with an endless aimless story a la any triangle/quadrangle involving Liam and Steffy and their relations).

Maybe when Eric wakes up he won’t remember Quinn but believe he’s still married to Donna.

I like her. However, I’d rather see the return on a permanent basis of Thorne and Felicia Forrester.

It’s about damned time!!! I was wondering about Donna and why she hasn’t been used. She was able to carry story back in the day so i couldn’t figure out why she was back burnered. glad she is coming home.

I have never felt connected to her in the role of Donna, and felt as if the Brooke/Bill affair would’ve been spicier had it been Donna instead of Brooke. And following her recent Y&R returns, I’d love for her to return more so as Grace, instead.

My wild, wild guess…

Eric’s dead. He will relapse from his brain hemorrhaging, be comatose for awhile and then Ridge will take him off of life support. Then Quinn finds out that she has power of attorney and sues the hell out of Ridge.

It’s been nice knowing you Eric. But please prove me wrong. Please, please, please!!!

Excellent. Love the character and Jennifer

THIS is “how” sexual

YAY! I hope it’s for more than one day. Donna has been sorely missed.

What a welcome return! I have been waiting for Donna to return for a while, Eric’s condition alone is more than enough reason for her to stay, but the state of her sisters’ relationship shows me there is a definite need for her on the canvas. I can’t see any person the show needs more right now. She fits in all the spaces the show desperately needs filled up, and she may give Quinn a great nemesis, besides Steffy and Ridge, lol, but this may be competition for Eric. Donna was bright spot in Eric’s life in my opinion, basically anyone who wasn’t Sheila or Quinn is a bright spot. I miss all the Logan sisters hanging out and talking and laughing, she was the glue that held the Logans together, and she has never went after any of her sister’s men while they weren’t available, so she leads by example in my eyes. What she and Eric had was sweet and funny and can’t be duplicated, and I would love to see that flame reignited again. Or, they could take Donna in a new direction with a new man, or someone who is ALWAYS controversial: Deacon, or even Carter, unless she thinks it’s too weird being with her son’s adoptive brother, but that never stopped the rest of the canvas from doing whatever. I hope she’s staying permanently, because she’s been gone for too long for no reason at all, and she guarantees we see less of the stupid Liam/Steffy/Wyatt/Ivy junk that has needed to go for quite some time now.

I’m going to say this once time, they better leave Eric alone. The show is better with him than without, plus he and Brooke are the only Originals left! I’m not trying to see a repeat of John and Gloria from Y&R years ago where they just decided to kill him off for no good reason. I know B&B can do better for Eric and the rest of the cast then kill him off, unless it’s John Mccook’s choice.

I agree with both of your comments dante Eric was always one of favorites as well. I am hope they don’t kill him off, to make Ridge the head of the family. Who by the way is acting like a pompus ass right now. I never cared for him as Ridge. But right now he is to arrogant for my taste. I was hoping for Donna to come back over the summer when Brooke and Katie were going at it over Bill. I hope she stays longer thean Brooke’s wedding. I to am so over the Liam, Steffie, Wyatt garbage. Enough is enough already. Steffie is getting on my nerves as well with her my grandfather this and my grandfather that crap. With what their doing to the old guy now will put right back in that bed when he wakes up again. As the saying goes, tune in tomorrow!!!

John McCook is loved on that show he is not going anywhere Brad would be a idiot he is a underrated actor he looked so handsome in his white tux he should be front and center always.

I think Donna should return long term and should be paired with Bill. Eric and Brooke should reunite and so should Ridge and Katie.

I do not want to see Eric and Quinn seprated,they bring out the Best in each other.As for Donna let her go after Bill and Brooke back with the monster man Ridge.Steffy back with Liam Katie with the New Doctor that is suppose to be coming in.As for Zenda say Good bye to Nicole,if she has another baby for Rick and Maya.

One Life to Live Alum Jonathan Groff Wins First Tony Award For ‘Merrily We Roll Along’

Finally, in his third Tony Award nomination, the multi-talented Jonathan Groff, was named the Tony winner in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical for his work in the Broadway revival of Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along at the 77th annual Tony Awards broadcast on CBS.

In one of the hotly contested categories of the night, Groff bested Brody Grant for The Outsiders, Dorian Harewood for The Notebook, Brian d’Arcy James for Days of Wine and Roses, and Oscar and Olivier Award winner Eddie Redmayne for Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club.

Many thought Groff should have won a Tony back in 2007 for his performance in the original Broadway cast of Spring Awakening, but ‘Merrily’ was the ticket to victory.

One Life to Live fans may remember Groff played the teenager Henry Mackler back in 2007, in what was to be a long arc of a storyline involving a school shooting, but his role as cut short after 11 episodes, due to the real-life Virginia Tech school shooting in April of 2007.

Delivering the most emotional and heartfelt acceptance speech Tony night, Jonathan began. “I grew up in a house surrounded by cornfields in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I was raised by my parents, Jim and Julie Groff, and my brother David, and the three of them were sitting right there. Thank you for letting me dress up like Mary Poppins when I was three. Thank you for letting me act out scenes from I Love Lucy on my 10th birthday. Thank you for always allowing my freak flag to fly without ever making me feel weird about it.”

He added, “Even if they didn’t always understand me “my family knew the lifesaving power of fanning the flame of a young person’s passions without judgment. I walked through life with an open heart because you let me know that I could. Thank you to all of my teachers back in Pennsylvania, especially Sue Fisher, who told me I could do this for a living.”

Speaking to how Broadway has impacted his life, Groff further teared-up and expressed, “I moved to New York exactly 20 years ago this year and I got a job waiting tables and became a volunteer for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids. All I wanted was to be a part of this community. A thank you to everyone involved in Spring Awakening who not only made that dream come true, but also inspired me to come out of the closet when I was 23. I’m now 39 and musical theater is still saving my soul.”

“Maria Friedman, thank you for letting me be your Franklin Shepherd in this production of Merrily and allowing me the chance to accept respect and express both the lightest and darkest parts of myself,” Groff continued. “Daniel Radcliffe and Lindsay Mendez, you are more than old friends, you are soul mates, and I’m looking forward to watching each other change for the rest of our lives. Thank you to every member of the extraordinary cast for lifting this Merrily into the spiritual stratosphere.”

Groff concluded with, “And finally, I just want to say that when I was a kid in Pennsylvania, I used to record the Tony Awards on a VHS tape and watch the performances over and over again. And to actually be able to be a part of making theater in this city and just as much to be able to watch the work of this incredible, incredible community, has been the greatest gift and pleasure of my life. I thank you and thank you so much for this honor.”

Days Of Our Lives

Jonah Robinson Joins the Cast of Days of our Lives as Dr. Mark Greene

If you caught last Wednesday’s June 12th episode of Days of our Lives, a new doctor came running into Horton Town Square shirtless; much to the delight and then eventual chagrin of Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart).

Enter actor Jonah Robinson who is now on the Peacock streaming soap opera in the recurring role of Dr. Mark Greene. We meet Mark when Leo tries to hit on him, only to have Mark clarify to Leo he is straight, shocking Leo that his gaydar could have been so off.

Later, Mark is at University Hospital and stepping in for Chanel’s (Raven Bowens) doctor who was called away for the day and he assures Chanel and Johnny (Carson Boatman) that their unborn baby has a strong heartbeat, and at the moment is doing fine.

During the conversation, Mark reveals he is the big brother to his little sister, Felicity (Kennedy Garcia), with whom Chanel loves when she comes to the bake shop.  There was also a little ‘wink-wink’ moment, when Johnny recalls that the doctor on the hit NBC medical drama, ER, was named Dr. Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards), to which Salem’s Mark Greene, says he was named after.

Taking to his Instagram, Robinson shared, “Meet Dr. Mark Greene. So excited to be joining @dayspeacock. It’s an honor to be @kennedyjean04 @louis_tomeo ‘s big brother.”

So, it looks like there are 3 Greene siblings.  Will we eventually meet the parents?

Before Days of our Lives, Jonah was seen on Peacock’s Daisy Jones and the Six, and has appeared in independent movies and musical theatre productions throughout his career.

Do you hope DAYS expands Jonah’s role as the Greene family becomes more entrenched in story? What are you first impressions? Comment below.
