As previously reported, The Bold and the Beautiful has returned to work after taking a hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic. Viewers have seen various actors on social media talking about their return to the studio. Now, another name can be added to the list of performers back at TV City – Jennifer Gareis (Donna).

“So good to see you in high spirits,” @gupteviraj. “I think you broke the Olympic high jump record.”
Gareis first came to the attention of soap fans as Grace on The Young and the Restless in 1997. She took over the role from Josie Davis. Gareis was recently seen on a YR classic re-airing in scenes with Peter Bergman (Jack) and Christian Jules Le Blanc (Michael).
The actress exited Genoa City in 2004 and two years later, she was cast in the role of Donna Logan on BB, the part previously played by Carrie Mitchum. Gareis was paired opposite John McCook‘s Eric. The two played a serious romance, which led to marriage. Donna and Stephanie (Susan Flannery) sparred often over Eric. The Forrester patriarch’s first wife tried everything to break up the couple.
Sporadically, Gareis has popped over to YR as Grace including an episode in which Nick (Joshua Morrow) was caught in a bear trap and hallucinated about all the women in his life.
Now, she’s back on BB. Often, Donna is on hand to act as a sounding board to her sisters Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Katie (Heather Tom). Will Gareis be seen doing that or is she going to have her own storyline? Stay tuned to find out! The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for air times.
