Kelly Lang has played Logan on The Bold and the Beautiful since the show’s start in March 1987. Fans of the soap have mixed feelings about the long-time character, mostly due to her various romantic relationships and love triangles.

The main love triangle tangle involves the competition between Logan and Dr. Taylor Hayes (Hunter Tylo) for the love of Ridge Forrester (Ronn Moss/Thorsten Kaye). Fans of the show are divided into two groups, based on whom they want Forrester to end up with. Those who root for Brooke and Ridge are Team Bridge, while those who believe in Taylor and Ridge are Team Tridge.

Both women have had various marriages throughout the show, both to Ridge and other characters. As of now, Team Bridge has won, as the two characters are married. Besides her relationship with Ridge, Brooke is also known for long-standing feuds with both Hayes and Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery). Kelly Lang’s portrayal of Logan won her a Daytime Emmy Award in 2013, and she is still a major part of the show. 

Lang and Denise Richards’ relationship

Richards was a major movie star in the 1990s, appearing in films such as Wild Things, Drop Dead Gorgeous, and the James Bond film The World Is Not Enough.

While she is not the box-office draw she once was, Richards is still an active part of the entertainment industry. Some of Richards’ most recent roles include appearances in Blue Mountain State, Two and a Half Men, 30 Rock, and Love Actually. Richards has also been a major part of Kelly Lang’s soap The Bold and the Beautiful since April 2019.

Richards plays Shauna Fulton in the soap opera, who is the mother of Flo Fulton. Richards is also a featured character in the reality show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
