Buckle up, The Bold and the Beautiful fans, because Denise Richards will soon be joining the iconic soap opera! According to People, the 48-year-old is continuing to keep herself busy as she’s just landed the role of Shauna Fulton on the CBS drama.
“Shauna is a fun-loving, hard-working single mother from Las Vegas who aspires to live life to its absolute fullest,” executive producer and head writer Bradley Bell told the outlet of Denise’s character. “She heads for Los Angeles when she learns that her daughter, Florence ‘Flo’ (portrayed by Katrina Bowden), 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.” Well, we’re interested, that’s for sure!
The actress’ first episode will air on April 3, so be sure to give yourself a reminder to set your DVRs that day. Until then, the Wild Things star will continue to appear on Season 9 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Denise has been in the news quite a bit lately, most recently for revealing that her 7-year-old daughter, Eloise, has special needs — a private bit of information that the actress was happy was met with nothing but support. “I was so touched at how supportive and really wonderful everyone has been, sharing their stories and bringing it out in the open. It was really pretty incredible,” the former model told Entertainment Tonight, adding that she decided to share the news of her daughter’s situation after “it came up on [my reality show] and people watching … would see different things about her. So obviously, I had to talk about it.”
Denise previously said, “Every child is different. You take care of your children no matter what is going on with them. I don’t know if [Eloise] is ever going to talk like a typical child. But as a parent, you want what’s best for your children, and you just do it.” We wish Denise nothing but the best in her personal life and career!
