B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang suffers broken bones while horseback riding

Katherine Kelly Lang reports that she injured herself while horseback riding on Mother’s Day. The Bold and the Beautiful star shared an update with her followers on her condition.

Katherine Kelly Lang suffers from ankle fractures

We’ve seen soap opera heroines like Dynasty’s Krystle Carrington (Linda Evans) and The Young and the Restless’ Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) suffer from riding accidents. Now Katherine Kelly Lang, who plays B&B’s Brooke Logan Forrester, has suffered an actual injury.

“Hope you all had an amazing Mother’s Day today…” Lang began her Instagram post. “I started a nice ride yesterday with some friends. Our plan was to go 40 miles to train for the 50 mile horse race in June. It was a nice day! At about 16 miles I got off my horse down a steep, very rocky trail to give it a break.

She’s not a TV doctor but she played one in real life

“At the bottom of the trail, I tripped over a rock and my left foot took the pounding,” Lang continues. “My ankle and foot dislocated to the left at a 90 degree angle to my leg. I put it back in place. It was so disgusting but I had to do it.

“Luckily it happened near a road and a nice stranger called 911,” Katherine Kelly Lang shares gratefully. “And luckily I was with my friends who helped me with my horse and my spirit. The ambulance took me to the hospital and the x-rays showed 3 broken bones in my ankle. I had surgery late at night and now have rods, pins and ankle screws No weight on my foot for 6 weeks.

“I’ll still go to work later this week and try to heal quickly so I can do all the things I love to do,” Lang added. “I’m still in the hospital today trying to put a smile on my face. I’m not a happy camper when things slow me down like this. And there’s always a lesson to learn. I don’t don’t know what that lesson is yet, but I’ll have time to reflect. #stay positive.”

No word yet on how this situation will or will not affect screen time for Brooke. B&B can either write Lang’s injury into the script (luckily Brooke’s daughter Bridget, played by Ashley Jones, is a doctor!), write Brooke on canvas so Lang has time to recover, or temporarily recast the role. . Veteran B&B fans remember when Catherine Hickland (ex-Lindsay, One Life to Live) replaced Lang as Brooke Logan at the start of the series 35 years ago or when Sandra Ferguson (ex-Amanda, Another World) replaced Lang during her maternity leave in 1997.
