Wishful Casting: Jack Wagner's New Fiancée Heather Locklear as The Bold and the Beautiful's Kristen Forrester
Everywhere you look these days, popular stars from primetime and film are turning up on daytime soaps. I say it's high time Jack Wagner convinced his ladylove (and according to People, new fiancée) Heather Locklear to make an appearance on his CBS Daytime sudser The Bold and The Beautiful. I know the perfect role to facilitate my dream Melrose Place reunion — Locklear could play Eric and Stephanie Forrester's (John McCook and Susan Flannery) ice princess daughter Kristen!
B&B showrunner Brad Bell's been teasing about how the original Forrester kids are going to be pissed about Stephanie basically ceding control of the Forrester fashion house to eldest son Ridge's (Ron Moss) offspring. Who better than primetime soap's ultimate super bitch (in addition to portraying advertising/PR shark Amanda Woodward on both the 90's and 2000's versions of MP, Locklear played trailer trash vixen Sammy Jo on Dynasty in the 80's) to help Thorne (Winsor Harmon) and Felicia (Lesli Kay) launch an all-out war against Ridge's ex-wife Taylor (Hunter Tylo) and her spawn?
Tylo and Locklear never got their chance to square off on Melrose Place, because the late Aaron Spelling allegedly fired Tylo for getting pregnant, resulting in a monster lawsuit. Imagine all the press Locklear doing a guest stint on B&B opposite both her real-life lover and Tylo would generate?
Of course Kristen would simply have to be the latest Forrester lass to go to bed with sailor-turned-rags peddler Nick Marone (Wagner) while she's in town. This could be soap gold. What do you guys think? Should we start a "Get Heather Locklear on The Bold and the Beautiful" campaign? Sound off in the comments!
