Johnson recently taped her episodes, which will air on Tuesday, April 28 and Wednesday, April 29. She returns to the role that she played from 1991 through 1994, not her original character, the deceased Caroline Spencer. Karen is Caroline's long-lost twin sister.
In 1994, Johnson left "B&B" to pursue a career on the other side of the camera as a television writer. Using her real life as an inspiration, Johnson created the hit sitcom, "Hope & Faith," (which starred "All My Children" alum Kelly Ripa) based on her life after leaving "B&B." Besides donning the hat of creator, she also served as executive producer on the series.
