Wyatt’s given ex and current flame Flo something to smile about lately on The Bold and the Beautiful, having realized he’s in love with her. Alas, in real-life, Flo’s portrayer, Katrina Bowden, got some health news recently that has her maybe not smiling as much!
Katrina Bowden Dental Drama
Bowden posted on Instagram: “I just got back from the dentist and found out: I need to get gum grafting done (which may take 4 total surgeries for me to complete), I still brush too hard [expletive] wanna fine me…I still grind my teeth and clench my jaw too much…which is affecting everything dentist said it’s time to get that TMJ botox again (I was hoping I was done with it but…”
No word yet on when the actress will get the procedures done and how this will affect screen time for Flo. The show’s production schedule may allow for Bowden to get the work completed during downtime or during a show hiatus so that viewers won’t even notice her absence.
Like her social-media savvy TV mom, Denise Richards (Shauna), Bowden graciously takes time to interact with responders to her post.
One suggested she start drinking celery juice to aid her health. “I understand it has a lot of benefits,” Bowden replied, “but I have a real hard time imagining it will make the gum around my teeth grow back in or stop me from grinding.”
Another poster suggested Bowden use a mouth guard, but it sounds like she’s already considered that option and ruled it out — “mouthguards are great if you can use them! I end up taking it out every night while I’m sleeping like a sleepwalking zombie,” Bowden replied.
Soap Hub wishes Bowden a speedy recovery in advance of her procedures! The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for air times.
