B&B Casting News
By SOD • Posted: Sep 10, 2013
B&B has released a casting notice for Karen Spencer as a recurring/possible contract role. The part is currently played by Joanna Johnson, who also serves as executive producer on the ABC Family hit THE FOSTERS. In other casting news, the call for Alexandra Forrester has been revised. The show is now seeking a 17 to 19-year old to fill the contract role.

I'm sorry, why on earth would they put a contract to Karen? They are never going to use her as a gay woman in a frontburner storyline. Unless they are now planning on making her a bisexual and pairing her with Thorne. Which is awful and insulting.
Please, don't entertain these silly ideas, just stick with Joanna Johnson who is pure gold, and have her come for visits.

||My guess is that Joanna Johnson is super busy with The Fosters and whatever else she's working on that she simply can't fit B&B into her schedule anymore. Although, I do wonder if this might be a network-related issue, i.e. that ABC Family won't let her "cross-polinate" to CBS anymore.|

I think Karen being bi-sexual would be interesting.

And I think she is, in the 90's she had love stories whit men on our screen nad she never have been unsure about that
I'm gay but I've found insulting that they have made her gay with her past, it make seem being gay it's a choice, just a moment in our lives
It was better if they'd have used one of the kids out of canvas for a gay storyline
By the way it's possible that they are searching an actress for an other role and they are using Karen Spencer name to hiding their real intentions

I don't see why Karen dating men in the past makes it seem like being gay is a choice. Perhaps after she got into a relationship with Dani she realized (or admitted to herself) why things with those guys didn't work out. I mean, sure technically, she probably is bi-sexual, but people label themselves whatever they feel most comfortable with. I'm sure Sara Gilbert calls herself a lesbian and we all know she dated that actor from 'The Big Bang Theory.' I'd guess there are a lot of lesbians out there who dated guys in their youth and wouldn't call themselves bi-sexual now.
As for the recast, perhaps Joanna Johnson told Bell to do it because she will be so busy with her show. Maybe Bell had a story in mind for Karen and Dani and JJ told him she wasn't available. I like JJ, but I don't mind having a recast.
