The week of November 20, 2017
Laur Allen wrapped up her run as Juliet Helton on November 10, when her character died while giving birth to Cane’s (Daniel Goddard) baby.
The actress took to Instagram to thank the soap for “one unexpected/amazing/hell of an adventure. Juliet was only supposed to be around for a few days…” It turned into nearly nine months. Allen first appeared on the soap as a consultant for Brash & Sassy on February 28.
The November 16 episode of the soap featured a familiar voice, country music singer, songwriter and actress Naomi Judd. Judd played Connie Wood, a woman who called into The Hilary Hour to reveal that she’d been scammed by Jordan (Darnell Kirkwood) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan).
