"I'm only going in for three or four episodes as of right now," she tells Zap2it, "but there's some fun stuff with Bridget's mom (Brooke, played by Katherine Kelly Lang). I specifically didn't want to go back for a wedding or a funeral. I feel like this is too cool a character to come back and just sit in the background. That's not that fun."
Jones says she's willing to listen if B&B wants her to stay longer.
"I feel like so many things have changed in my journey and career," the actress reveals. "I know a lot of people have a plan for what's going to happen, and the reality is that things change every year. And the business has completely changed since I started. Someone can do three episodes of THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, then turn around and book a primetime show. That's happening all the time. I did tons of other stuff while I was on [the soap], so I'm so grateful to the show, and they've been so good to me. This is a fun character the audience really responds to, so I'm open to whatever they might have in mind for her."
