Yay! Donna Logan is back on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL! Jennifer Gareis made an appearance in the soap’s annual Christmas episode, but now it seems as though she’s returning for real! “Look who’s back!” the actress tweeted. She then mused: “Which storyline is the best fit for me? Or should I say which guy? Any suggestions?”
Gareis joined the cast of B&B back in 2006 as a recast Donna, a role last played in 2001 by Carrie Mitchum. Donna was involved in many big storylines over the years, including romances with Thorne and Eric Forrester, as well as the revelation that Marcus Walton was the son she’d given up for adoption as a baby. However, Gareis was dropped to recurring status with the soap in 2015 and appeared only for a few episodes here and there at big family events like Katie and Bill’s wedding or Bill and Brooke’s failed nuptials.
Donna was most recently seen on Dec. 22, 2017, when she attended the Forrester Christmas celebration, an appearance that was spoiled by on-screen sister Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke), who shared a backstage pic from the set where fans immediately recognized Gareis in the background of the shot!
Had a wonderful day shooting the Christmas episode today! Long day but great show! Can’t wait to see it! Love the photo bombers @bbheathertom @aarondspears 🤣 and of course “the cool guy” @jmccook1970 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎉💖#boldandbeautiful #brookelogan #ericforrester #cbsdaytime #christmasepisode #stories #filming🎬 #actinglife #katherinekellylang #johnmccook
If Gareis is making a proper return to the show, there are plenty of possibilities for future storylines! She could cause Quinn some aggravation by trying to rekindle things with Eric, but it might be easier for her to reunite with Thorne, who is back in LA and quite single! Of course, now that Aaron D. Spears is back on contract as Justin, perhaps they could get back together?
Of course, now that she’s back on B&B, that gives Gareis less time to spend with husband Bobby Ghassemieh and her kids, Gavin (7) and Sophia (5), taking super cute photos like the ones you’ll see in the family album below!
Stay tuned to see how it all plays out, and for more B&B casting news, keep reading the CBS edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!
