Wishful Casting: Donna Mills as Bold and the Beautiful's Beth Logan


With so many of her Knots Landing and Dallas peers turning up on daytime in recent years (Ted Shackleford and Joan Van Ark on Young and the Restless;  Patrick Duffy and Linda Evans on Bold and the Beautiful. Kent Masters King on General Hospital and Kevin Dobson, soon-to-be on Days of Our Lives) wouldn't it be awesome if the best bitch to ever dwell in a SoCal cul-de-sac Donna Mills (aka Abby Fairgate Ewing)  joined the cast of B&B as long absent Logan matriarch Beth?

Mills still looks just as hot as she did when she was scorching up primetime Thursday nights 20 years ago on the underrated Knots Landing. JR and Alexis might have gotten most of the attention from the mainstream press, but there has never been a more delicious blonde she-devil than Abby Ewing. Who better to play the mother of sin sisters Brooke and Donna? Not to mention gently chide youngest Logan sister Katie about her lack of fashion sense. I know Beth wasn't written as a glamazon during her earlier runs on the show, but a few years in Paris will change even the frumpiest of frumps.  And with Mills in town, there would finally be someone in Los Angeles capable of taking on Hurricane Stephanie!
