The Bold & the Beautiful's Kimberlin Brown Is Running for Congress

This soap opera actor might quit acting has learned that The Bold and the Beautiful actor, Kimberlin Brown, who plays the iconic villainess Sheila Carter, plans to run for congress in California’s 36th district. Brown, who spoke at the Republican National Convention last August as a representative of California’s Businesswomen for Trump, took to social media to announce her decision to run for office. On her campaign website, Kimberlin for Congress, Brown seeks donations and shares this statement, “For the first time in the history of our great country, we are not leaving something better behind for our youth. Though I’d be walking away from a very lucrative business and career, it’s a move I’m willing to make, to make a difference. I’m not looking to be a career politician. I will get out when I’m no longer effective.”

The idea of Kimberlin Brown walking away from acting may not be happy news for fans of Sheila, who is currently entertaining viewers in a front-burner storyline that involves the infamous schemer working with a new ally, Mateo (Francisco San Martin), to break up the marriage of Quinn (Rena Sofer) and Eric Forrester (John McCook) in hopes of reuniting with her former husband. Brown’s unexpected return to B&B in June was a huge hit with soap fans who had watched her character wreak havoc on both B&B and sister soap The Young and the Restless off and on since 1990.
