Kimberlin Brown is back in The Bold and the Beautiful
LOS ANGELES — Kimberlin Brown Pelzer, who ran unsuccessfully for the 36th Congressional District seat in 2018, is back doing what she does best: acting.
Incumbent Democratic Congressman Raul Ruiz, M.D., grabbed 59.02% of the vote while Brown netted only 40.98%.
During her failed bid, she served up burger at McDonald’s in an attempt to connect with Coachella Valley voters.
Kimberlin Brown returns this week in what is being billed as the mother of all surprises on the long-running soap opera, “The Bold and the Beautiful.”
“It was supposed to be a nice wedding day for Steffy and Finn,” Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) told Entertainment Tonight in a segment that aired Monday. “And things were going well until Sheila pops up.”
Sheila? Sheila Carter?! Yes, that Sheila Carter.
But why would Sheila show up for “Sinn’s” wedding day? It’s not like she’s related to either one of them. Or is she? Turns out she is.
Sheila is one of those fabled characters fans love to hate,
It’s been three years since Kimberlin Brown last appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful as Sheila, a role that Brown originated in 1990 on The Young and the Restless. There’s no word yet on how long the actress-turned-politician will stick around, but with the bombshell she drops, the impact will more than likely be felt long after Sheila exits the canvas.
“I’ll play as long as they’ll have me,” Brown told ET.
Brown’s character is still regarded as one of daytime television’s top 5 baddies, and sometimes fans have a hard time separating her from her on-screen persona. Once, some overzealous fans took their hatred of Sheila to the next level.
According to Showbiz CheatSheet, during an appearance on The Chris and Sandy Show, Brown dished on one real-life experience with some folks who didn’t like Sheila. “I was on the way home from the Caribbean with my husband, and we had a layover in Dallas, and I went into the ladies’ room,” she said. “I had these women come up to me that were there together. And they started hitting me with a newspaper, going, ‘Oh, you are so bad! I can not believe …,’ and I finally had to stop them,” Brown gestured.
She introduced herself as Kimberlin Brown and reminded them that she only plays a fictional character on TV. She said they were embarrassed, but she recognized that Sheila presses people’s buttons. “To be able to pull that kind of emotion out of people when they just see you on the street, it was great.”
