Growing up on television was challenging. Davis was once quoted saying, “I would overhear fans say, ‘Look, there’s the ugly girl from Charles in Charge.” However, the joke is on them as Josie Davis looks fantastic today.
Following Charles in Charge, Josie Davis would appear in multiple projects but again take on a long-term role in The Young and the Restless from 1996 to 1997. Her role as Grace Turner on that show spanned 87 episodes. She would find herself heavily involved with other actors in the daytime soap opera scene.

Davis would also take a leading role in the drama Titans, where she played the character of Laurie Williams across 13 episodes. She would star alongside Casper Van Dien, Yasmine Bleeth, and John Barrowman.

Josie responded to allegations by saying it was ‘completely false’ and she further stated that she only had a ‘positive and professional relationship with him’.
