If this were a storyline in a daytime soap, it would be hard to believe. But per Michael Logan’s exclusive TV Guide magazine report, it is all that and more. Currently returned to The Bold and the Beautiful for a storyline about identical twin Karen having lived a secret life as a lesbian, Joanna Johnson, the actress behind the role, has chosen to come out to the publication in real life as well.
To the first question from Logan, who applauds her decision and wonders about the absence of any other such brave daytime colleagues, Johnson can actually commiserate:
“I was so worried I wouldn’t be employable as an actress if people knew I was a lesbian. Or that I wouldn’t be believable in romance stories. I had to deal with a lot of self-loathing.”
