Kathryn Joosten (Karen McCluskey onDesperate Housewives) will guest star on The Bold and the Beautiful, EW has learned exclusively. The actress will play herself in a story arc involving Nick Marone (Jack Wagner) and Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery) that centers on lung cancer. In the episode, Stephanie befriends real-life lung cancer patients and survivors and meets them one-by-one in her home to hear their stories of diagnosis, treatment and hope. Joosten, a two-time cancer survivor, is among the visitors in the drama's 6000th episode.

The episode tapes Dec. 17 and will air on Feb. 7. Joosten reportedly gave up her 45-year smoking habit in 2001 after she was diagnosed with lung cancer. Eight years later, she was diagnosed again but underwent surgery. She was declared cancer-free earlier this year.

Ironically, the daytime sudser has long been tied to Desperate Housewives and the character of Karen, though that's not how it secured Joosten for the role. The Bold and the Beautiful's Alley Mills (Pam Douglas) is married to Orson Bean, who plays Karen's husband on Housewives.

Emmy-Bait 2011: Take that Guza/JFP, Brad rips into another GH plot...

Scoop on Katherine Joosten's appearance/cancer story via Nelson Branco...

Holy smoke! In story 411, Nick finds out that he has a spot on his lung because of his cigar smoking! Nice story, Brad; it’s about time the underrated Jack Wagner get some worthy, character-driven material. Look for Desperate Housewives Emmy winner Kathryn Joosten to play herself in the storyline.

um isnt Stephanie already dealing with lung cancer right now? Why give it to a second character? This would best be utilized in Stephanie's story

Remember when Stephanie sought counseling from Taylor. 2 weeks later Nick was on Taylor's couch and discovered: "my mother... my other was a w-h-o-r-e..."

In Brad's mind La Flannery and Wagner are totally intertwined. :lol:
