HomeTagsComings & GoingsThe Spencer Family Grows on B&B Luke Kerr February 7, 2012 9 Comments It looks like The Bold and the Beautiful’s Spencer family is getting a bit bigger on-screen. According to TV Guide, Joanna Johnson’s Karen Spencer is returning to B&B and bringing a daughter Caroline (Linsey Godfrey) with her. The kid is named Caroline, after Karen's late sister (also played by Johnson), and she's a twentysomething design student who is hoping to land a job at Forrester Creations. Karen brings her to L.A. for the interview. However, there’s a twist about the latest addition to the Spencer clan. The rep further reveals that Caroline — who uses the last name of Spencer — is not related by blood to anyone on B&B which makes her available to all the show's young men. Reportedly, The Bold and the Beautiful’s characters will already know Caroline when she first appears on March 27. No word on how long Karen will stick around after Caroline has been introduced.

Log in to Reply Smitty February 7, 2012 Reggyreg I am wondering the same thing but I hoping they just mean Forresters. Lord knows we don’t need Liam going after his cousin.

I am going to assume young Caroline will attract the attention of Thomas or Rick? If so Thank Gawd these boys won’t be chasing their sister or niece for a change.

I loved her character back in the triangle with Ridge and Thorne…She always reminded me of Grace Kelly with her regal and sophisticated look..

I kind of wish they had never killed off Caroline though. I guess having Karen return with young Caroline in tow, may be enough to sufficiently haunt Ridge (lol)…I hope.

I tghink he could have fired other actors though, because I liked all three of them, but I guess the wages for LAD and JW are pretty high. JJ is great. She showed that she has still great chemistry with Ronn Moss. (and that says something) But really, its still not clear what direction Brad is going with this show. JY as Rick is still a let down. Bringing back Amber was another mistake, she has no storyline after the Liam mess thats interesting enough. The black cast is useless on this show, or at least the way Brad writes them. I dont see any point for Marcus, Dayzee or Justin to stay on this show much longer. Donna, Pam, Taylor and Thorne…I guess its hard for Brad to say goodbye, but sometimes its just better to do something drastic. All these people had more reason to be fired then LAD, BB or JW. But thats my opinion. Log in to Reply harlee490 February 7, 2012 I’m loving this idea and hopefully she can stick around to have Dollar Bill to give him more of connection. Loving the namesake, such a nice touch. Log in to Reply reggyreg February 8, 2012 Smitty, You are right. They need to add some more characters because everyone is too “familiar” with everyone else on this show! LOL Log in to Reply VannieNY February 8, 2012 should be interesting, can’t wait to see it unfold. the only thing better would’ve been that she goes to work for Jackie M because they really need a designer instead of stealing all the damn time, lmaooo Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
