Flo’s mother was introduced when Denise Richards joined the cast of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL as Shauna Fulton in the April 4 episode! “Shauna is a fun-loving, hard-working single mother from Las Vegas who aspires to live life to its absolute fullest,” executive producer and headwriter Bradley Bell told People Magazine when the casting was announced. “She heads for Los Angeles when she learns that her daughter, Florence, the pride and joy of her life, is entangled in a complicated situation. However, Shauna’s involvement won’t stop there. She’s got a past and big secrets to spill.”
Shauna first appeared when Flo called her mother to tell her she'd run into Wyatt again and inspired by his finding his birth father, asked about her own. Shauna tried to shut down her daughter's curiosity, insisting she drop the search, but Flo wasn't going to give up that easily. Shauna showed up in Los Angeles where she reconnected with Quinn, who was delighted to see her old friend again. However, when Shauna learned that Bill Spencer was Wyatt's biological father, she freaked out and admitted there was a possibility that Bill was also Flo's father, making the high school sweethearts potential siblings. But when Wyatt checked the results of Flo's DNA test, it revealed that the babydaddy was actually Storm Logan!
Shauna was thrilled that her daughter was part of the wealthy Logan clan, and even helped Katie test Bill's loyalty by pretending to seduce the guy! But she was stunned to learn of Flo's part in the Beth/Phoebe baby swap and urged her to keep silent or risk losing her cushy new life. And when the secret finally came out, Shauna tried to take some of the blame onto herself to protect her girl.
The actress will be immediately recognizable to viewers from her roles in the films Starship Troopers, Wild Things, Drop Dead Gorgeous, The World Is Not Enough, and more. She has also appeared in the reality series, DENISE RICHARDS: IT’S COMPLICATED, and had a regular role on the television comedy BLUE MOUNTAIN STATE (which also starred B&B’s Darin Brooks (Wyatt)). And since she’s also recently joined the cast of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS for the ninth season, perhaps there might be some behind-the-scenes B&B footage coming up on the Bravo reality series!
Since Flo has gotten herself mixed up in Reese Buckingham’s twisted scheme to steal Hope’s baby and sell it to Steffy for adoption, Shauna will likely have something to say about her daughter’s part in the crime! Unless she’s too busy trying to keep Flo from discovering who her biological father is!
