The Bold And The Beautiful To Dedicate Episode To Betty White
The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers reveal a sweet tribute to a Hollywood legend on the day she would have celebrated her 100th birthday.
The Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers – Remembering Betty White
As the world knows, comic actress and television icon Betty White died on December 31, 2021, just 17 days shy of what would have been her 100th birthday. Now, The Bold and the Beautiful will dedicate its January 17, 2022 episode to the actress who made such an impact on the soap.
While we do not expect an entire tribute episode as it would have had to have been put together quickly and would also push storylines back, we should see a dedication to her at the end of the half-hour with perhaps a montage of some of her most memorable scenes on B&B.
B&B Spoilers – Betty White’s Turn On The Bold and the Beautiful
As longtime fans know, White took a detour from her usual comedy work and tried out daytime dramas later in life in the mid-2000s as Ann Douglas on The Bold and the Beautiful. Ann was the estranged mother of Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery) and Pam Douglas (Alley Mills) and it turned out they did not have a very good childhood with this rigid woman raising them. There is a reason Stephanie ran far away as fast as she could when she had the chance.
