Young and the Restless comings and goings say Courtney Hope landed a role – fresh off her firing from Bold and the Beautiful as Sally Spectra. Courtney was just ushered out of one CBS soap only to be offered a plum role on the other one down the hall. Here’s the latest info on this soap swap and some big questions.
Sally Spectra’s Bold and the Beautiful Firing Stunned Courtney Hope
If you didn’t know it, initially, Sally Spectra was supposed to die a lingering dramatic death on B&B. And Courtney Hope knew it and was up for the challenge. Then, the writers decided to make it a fake death scheme – clearly to redeem Felony Flo Fulton (Katrina Bowden).
However, that left the new Young and the Restless actress assuming Sally would stick around on Bold and the Beautiful. But, fresh back from the COVID hiatus, the powers that be at B&B reportedly axed Courtney. So, Courtney had just two episodes left when the news broke.
So, Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks) told Sally Spectra to get out of LA. Now, she’s headed to Young and the Restless. Then, he left Sally and went back home to his baby-selling girlfriend, Flo… So, that was the last we saw of Courtney Hope on Bold and the Beautiful. Now, there’s excellent news.
Courtney Reveals Young and the Restless Hired Her
Today, Courtney Hope confirmed Y&R hired her for a yet-to-be-named role. The flame-haired actress posed with a Crimson Lights cup, adding the caption that it seems a “good fit.” And, in case there was any doubt what she meant, she also worse a Young and the Restless cap and shirt.
Two days ago, Courtney Hope posted a photo of herself in a shirt that read “Driven AF,” and it certainly seems like she has been since Bold and the Beautiful cut her from the show. Just yesterday, she wished her mom a happy birthday and praised her.
Then today, Courtney announced she’s going to Young and the Restless but maybe not leaving Sally Spectra behind. The big question, of course, is what part she will play. It looks like Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) may be single soon – so, there’s an opening in his life for a new love — maybe.
Will Sally Spectra Move to Genoa City on Young and the Restless?
Here’s another idea to ponder with the Y&R comings and goings announcement. Will the CBS soaps bring Courtney Hope’s character from Bold and the Beautiful over to Young and the Restless? They’ve done it before. Lauren Fenmore crossed over – as have others.
Plus, Wyatt advised Sally Spectra to “leave town,” and Genoa City is certainly another town. So, it could be that Courtney brings Sally over to Young and the Restless. After all, Sally could work for Chelsea 2.0 if they bring back that design business on Y&R.
So, wait to see for details on The Bold and the Beautiful actress transfer and to see if Courtney Hope plays Sally Spectra on Young and the Restless – or another new character. Stay tuned here for more details as they emerge on Courtney’s new (or maybe old) CBS soap role.
