Bold and the Beautiful comings and goings confirm Karla Mosley is out as Maya Avant – plus Shauna Fulton is back soon, as confirmed by Denise Richards personally. Here are the latest updates on who’s in and who’s out at the CBS soap – and what the means for storylines.
Bold and the Beautiful Comings & Goings: Karla Mosley Says Goodbye to Maya Avant
B&B fans hoped to see Maya Avant back soon because showrunner Brad Bell teased she’d likely be back this Fall. However, the actress shut down any talk that she’d return as Maya this week. Karla bid a “fond farewell” to Maya Avant on social media this week but thanked all the fans.
Post-Bold and the Beautiful, the actress promised there’s more to come but made it clear that playing Maya’s not in her future. With Zende Forrester just recast with Delon de Metz, viewers hoped that meant the Avants might be back, but that seems less likely with no Maya Avant.
Bold and the Beautiful comings and goings suggest with Zende talking about his split, that means Nicole Avant (Reign Edwards) won’t return. And without Maya Avant or Nicole, we don’t expect to see their parents, Julius (Obba Babatundé) and Vivienne (Anna Maria Horsford), which is a shame.
B&B Comings & Goings: Denise Richards Back on Set – Done Phoning it In
Bold and the Beautiful viewers just saw Shauna Fulton’s dream of a happy life with Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) fall apart. But it was evident that Denise was not on the CBS daytime set. In fact, until a few weeks ago, she was in Spain, wrapping a film previously interrupted by the pandemic.
Now, though, Denise confirmed she’s back on set (see pic below). That’s her in her Bold and the Beautiful dressing room getting done up as Shauna. Last week, Shauna Fulton’s best friend Quinn Fulton (Rena Sofer) lost it all. Her hubby dumped Quinn, and she’ll blame Shauna – at least in part.
So, Bold and the Beautiful spoilers suggest Quinn might target Shauna Fulton for payback. And we expect Shauna finds a new romance. With the actress done at RHOBH, she’s more committed to the CBS sudser. So, will Shauna Fulton snatch Eric in a rebound twist?
Bold and the Beautiful Ins and Outs: Case Worker and Mystery Sister
In other B&B casting updates, we’ll meet Michael Turner (Jarvis George) this week who’s a case-worker. He’s likely part of Steffy Forrester’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) rehab process. Steffy visits her daughter. So, Michael might be wrapped up in that.
Also, Bold and the Beautiful confirms Paris Buckingham (Diamond White), recently invented sister of Zoe Buckingham (Kiara Barnes), pops up November 2. She’s on contract, so we’ll see lots of the Buckingham sisters as November sweeps kicks into high gear on B&B.
It’s sad to know that Maya Avant won’t be back – that’s the end of an era. And that confirmation essentially kills the hope of getting the Avant family back on our screens. But look for Shauna Fulton in the flesh – and not on a phone screen – soon on B&B.
