This certainly sounds safer than a three-hour tour…but then, with the Forresters, one never knows! Actress Dawn Wells, beloved by baby boomers as Mary Ann on the classic sitcom Gilligan’s Island, is set for a guest appearance on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful. She’ll play Alice, a posh Forrester Creations buyer and friend of Eric Forrester (John McCook) and his late wife, Stephanie (Susan Flannery).

Wells’ episode—airing Friday, Feb. 19—will coincide with Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) deciding to reclaim his place at the Forrester Mansion. Says a rep for the daytime soap: “Ridge holds a cocktail party at the house and invites Alice and the company’s other long-time vendors. But first, he takes down the portrait of Maya [Karla Mosley] that’s been hanging on the wall and replaces it with the portrait of Stephanie.” No spoiler alert necessary: The painting switcheroo won’t go down well with Rick (Jacob Young)—Ridge’s arch-rival and Maya’s super-protective hubby!
