After an extended Hawaiian vacation, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Bridget will be back in town with her tot, Logan, in tow when Ashley Jones returns to the soap starting Tuesday, October 18. The Forrester heir left L.A. last year shortly after giving birth to the child conceived during a one night stand with her father-in-law, Owen. According to TV Guide, who exclusively broke the news, Jones will return to the soap on a recurring basis.
“If I went back, I’d really want to be a part of an on-going story,” the Emmy-nominated actress told Soaps In Depth earlier this summer, adding that there is a whole lot of unresolved issues between Bridget, her ex-hubby and his stepfather, who just so happens to be her babydaddy. “You never know if the baby is really Owen’s or Nick’s. When you look at history, Bridget has more with Nick than anyone else. But does that mean that he’s her soulmate? Does that mean that he’s who she’s supposed to be with? Sometimes I think that the person she’s ultimately meant to be with, she hasn’t met yet.”
Jones also shares that not being a contract player with B&B is perfectly fine with her. “I have always wanted to recur,” she points out. The actress has been working like crazy during her break from the soap, and not inking a contract will give her the flexibility to continue to do so. In addition to a recurring role in the upcoming FX series OUTLAW COUNTRY as the trophy wife of an underworld crime boss, and starred in and executive produced the Lifetime movie Secrets Of Her Past, which will debut on Sunday, September 25.
