Most Played Out Character Of 2022: The Bold And The Beautiful’s Sheila Carter

The Bold And The Beautiful: Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown)

The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) struck gold years ago when it inherited The Young and the Restless villain Sheila Carter. Kimberlin Brown has spent many more years in the fictional version of Los Angeles than she ever spent in Genoa City, but there is a point where enough is enough — at least temporarily.

The Bold and The Beautiful: Sheila And Her Menacing Ways

Sheila started 2022 off by switching champagne labels on what Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) would be drinking to ring in the new year so that she would think she was drinking sparkling cider and not its alcoholic counterpart.

We thought that was bad enough but when she shot Steffy Forrester Finnegan (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) to keep her from telling Brooke the truth and also shot her own son, John ‘Finn’ Finnegan (Tanner Novlan), that was too much to take and we figured the character would soon be written off for the moment.

However, that was not meant to be. Instead, Sheila spent months justifying her actions and tried to kill Li Finnegan (Naomi Matsuda) when she learned that Finn was really alive. And nobody really believed that Sheila had been mauled by a bear who chomped off her toe except the dumb character on the show.

Fans knew better and fans were right so we had to spend several more months watching Sheila shack up with Deacon Sharpe (Sean Kanan) while going on outings in a really bad and obvious disguise. Now, everyone knows Sheila is alive and she has revealed herself to Steffy and Finn.

Give Sheila A Rest For A Minute Or Ten

With crazy villains like Sheila, there is only so much viewers can take and Sheila has definitely done enough and worn out her welcome for now. Her antics get redundant and B&B can’t seem to take a cue from other soaps like General Hospital and Days of Our Lives. Those soaps rest their crazy characters every once in a while. It might even be six months or a year before new story arcs.

If B&B would do that with Sheila, it might not feel like she’s worn out her welcome as she did in 2022. Stay tuned to The Bold and the Beautiful weekdays to see what Sheila does next.
