But before the “B&B” work took place, Lang competed in the triathalon, which happened on Saturday March 15. So how the actress do in the race?

“The Bold and the Beautiful” kicked off its eight-episode filming excursion in Dubai and Abu Dhabi this week, officially becoming the very first daytime drama to shoot in the United Arab Emirates region! But just what can you expect from the exciting location shoot? Read on to find out!

“B&B’s” Executive Producer and Headwriter, Bradley P. Bell, admits that he’s been interested in the UAE for much longer than viewers might realize. “I’ve been fascinated with Dubai and Abu Dhabi for quite some time because of their spectacular skylines rising up out of the desert on the Persian Gulf and the fantastic convergence of diverse international cultures,” he says, adding that he’s looking forward to sharing the upcoming international adventure with fans. “In our story, business mogul Dollar Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) whisks his fiancée, Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang), off to the Emirates to marry her at this new crossroads of the world. Possessive ex-husband Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) follows them to impose his will on this romantic, stunt-filled action-packed adventure.”

As we previously reported, Johanna Johnson had teased that she may be returning to “The Bold and the Beautiful” as Karen Spencer — and it turns out, her mysterious comments were rooted in absolute fact!

Though her gig as writer and executive producer of ABC Family’s “The Fosters” has kept her quite busy, she managed to find time to film a couple of episodes for the sudser she previously called home: A rep for the show confirms that she’ll be headed back to the canvas for a short stint taking place on Wednesday, April 16 and Thursday, April 17.

Johnson, who originated the roles of twins Karen and Caroline in 1991, recently tweeted: “Worked with [Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke)], and it was like a flashback to when we started on B&B 27 yrs ago!”
