KIMBERLIN BROWN (SHEILA), THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL
Take a wildly popular actress from one soap and transfer her character to its sister show in one of the most successful crossovers ever. Give her clever, outrageous storylines that make viewers gasp and beg for more. Then, just when her story is getting even juicier - fire her. Huh?
The audience (and Digest editors) scratched their heads in disbelief when B&B jettisoned powerhouse actress Kimberlin Brown and her sinister alter ego, Sheila. Who could forget Sheila's audacious antics as she pursued her ultimately elusive dream: love and happiness?
We realize that B&B's half-hour length presents time constraints, and we're not complaining about the Spectras' expanded presence (see "Most Rejuvenated Family"), but to dump one of the most fascinating, entertaining characters on the canvas was a grave error. Judging by the letters, e-mail and online chats, fans second that motion. Of course, since Sheila is on the run with her daughter, Mary, she could always come back...
