Joanna Johnson set for a return to The Bold and the Beautiful!

Joanna Johnson ( the original Caroline on B&B, who came back as another character Karen Spencer) is returning to The Bold and the Beautiful for a four episode story arc beginning, July 22nd! The plot centers on Katie and Bill renewing their wedding vows.  Johnson, as many know has been focusing on her entertainment career behind the scenes.  First, she was the creator and co-executive producer of the Hope & Faith sitcom starring Kelly Ripa and Faith Ford, and now she has another hit on her hands with Make It or Break It – for ABC Family where she is writer and EP for that series!  But now she is returning to her soap roots thanks to a call from Brad Bell to mix it up with on-screen brother, Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) and more.

TV Guide spoke to Johnson for the lowdown.  Here are a few excerpts below!

Joanna on why Karen comes to town and back to B&B: Katie calls Karen, who is coming to town for a Spencer Publications board meeting and asks her to come a day early but doesn’t say why. It’s a surprise to all the guests, including Bill, that Katie is having a minister come over to renew their vows. It’s the same minister who married them originally, and all the same guests [Brooke, Donna, Justin, Stephen] plus a few new ones [Pam, Liam, Hope]. Supposedly, Karen has been running the New York office of Spencer Publications, which was news to me. I was wondering where she went. [Laughs] I kinda thought she’d gone back to the trailer park along with Dorothy Lyman.

Joanna on getting camera ready for a return to soaps when you have not been on-screen for awhile: Usually when [exec producer] Brad Bell calls me to do the show I think, “Oy. I should lose some weight before I go back.” But this time I didn’t. I just said, “Oh, what the heck.” I’m not here to push any romantic stories or be the ingénue. One of the reasons I got out of acting was that I didn’t like the pressure of having to be beautiful and skinny and perfect — which is why I understand and appreciate what the young women on Make It or Break It are dealing with. I’m so glad I no longer have to worry about that stuff.

Joanna Johnson was always my favorite when she left because she wanted to direct I was dissapointed. Wish she would come back permantly bring Winsor Harmon back for her and get rid of all these awful new characters.

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
