Is Katrina Bowden exiting ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’?

The Bold and the Beautiful tends to drop characters they’re tired of. Given Bowden’s absence and her new movie, speculation is the actor may be on her way out. The writers haven’t done much with Flo’s character in recent months. Flo’s last big storyline was being kidnapped by Sally Spectra.

Following Sally’s departure, Flo and Wyatt became engaged, but the producers pushed to the backburner. There’s been no official word about Bowden’s status with the show. It’s possible the soap opera can have Flo reappear at any moment, but her prolonged absence is suspicious.
