In news revealed today though an interview with head honcho, Brad Bell, of The Bold and the Beautiful for TV Guide, Susan Flannery’s, Stephanie Forrester is about to face her biggest battle yet, and this time, she might not win it!  Bell divulged that in the upcoming cliffhanger of this Friday, September 24th’s episode , the four-time Daytime Emmy winner will begin to play out perhaps her greatest on-screen story, when Stephanie finds out she has stage four cancer! And, who else should stumble upon this and be privy to the info?  None other than Stephanie’s rival Brooke . (Katherine Kelly Lang).    So, could this mean the final bow for Flannery, who has hinted that she may be retiring at some point from the series?   Here are some juicy excerpts below from the Q&A with Bell!

Bell on Stephanie’s dire diagnosis and the fact that she refuses treatment:  “I wanted to create the biggest mountain possible for Stephanie to overcome. It’s the weightiest, most intimate and difficult thing she has ever had to wrestle with and to have to share it with Brooke is torture. This is a story about a highly functioning woman that will delve deeply into issues of self-worth and denial. But it’s not going to be morbid or depressing. Stephanie is determined to party right into her grave. It’ll be a hell of a lot of fun to watch”

Bell on if Flannery is truly leaving B&B with this being her exit storyline: “Susan is as unpredictable as her performances. One never knows. We like to think that things are going to last forever but nothing does. She’s done very well on The Bold and the Beautiful and before that on Days of Our Lives, and has had a long and successful career in Hollywood. We certainly hope it continues and we’re all hoping Stephanie survives this… there is a possibility that she won’t.”

If Susan Flannery quits “The Bold and the beautiful” I will no longer watch. She is the heart and soul of that serial.

B&B uses cancer storylines all the time. Caroline, Becky, Grant, Macy, Felicia, now Stephanie. Brad Bell should think of something new. And it’s annoying when soaps make rivals “love” each other when 1 is in peril. Stephanie and Brooke should hate each other. Brooke has slept w/ all the Forrester men. Stephanie has repeatedly tried to kill Brooke, tried to kill Stephen, attacked Donna and has hated the Logans. A storyline more shocking would be if Brooke actually wins in a catfight. Brooke is younger and fit, yet she always gets pulverized by older Stephanie. Ridiculous. Flannery’s forte is not… Read more »

The problem w/ B&B is that Brad Bell could literally fire all the actors and kill off all the characters, but as long as he keeps Flannery, Moss and KKL, then B&B can keep going. And that’s bec Brad Bell really has only consistently written for these thespians and their characters. Brad Bell has never branched outside of this triad in any significant way. So, if Flannery does quit, 1/3 of the triumvirate will be lost, the show will lose its main rivalry, and B&B will feel its impact. All the major storylines on B&B, when you get down to… Read more »

I do agree without Susan Flannery the heart of the show will be gone.Like a true Mother ,she is the mainstay of the home or in her case, the show.I do disagree….Don Diamont as Bill Spencer is perfect.He’s so in control of himself and he does what ever it takes to get what he wants.Lets see if Liam makes him a more vulnerable man.plus, he looks so good and has gotten sexier as he gets older!

I will miss Stephanie if she leaves and it would be just like her to leave with a bang. I’ve been watching the show for many years and would really miss Stephanie. But, death is a reality and it does happen even in families like the Forrester.

Susan is a main character on this show, don’t really want to see her leave. It’s time that her and Eric settle in for good this time. Too much sadness on these shows. We need more happy times.

Former ‘Bachelor’ Star Colton Underwood Shares More Details on His Decision to Come Out Including Being Blackmailed

Last month, Colton Underwood came out publicly in a sit-down interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America.

The former lead of ‘The Bachelor’, Underwood’s announcement was met with some harsh criticism since he was already prepping a reality show about it for Netflix.

However, in a new feature with Variety, Colton shares what finally led him to reveal his truth: “I, at one point, during my rock bottom and spiral, was getting blackmailed. Nobody knows I was blackmailed.”

In his conversation, Underwood shared that while in LA he visited a spa known for a gay clientele.  Shortly thereafter, he received an anonymous email from someone claiming to have taken nude photos of him at the venue. Underwood never saw the alleged photos and explains he was at the spa “just to look,” saying he “should have never been there.”

The unidentified blackmailer threatened to “out” him in the press, and in a panic, Underwood forwarded the email to his publicist, which forced him to finally have an honest conversation about his sexual orientation, and a reckoning, of sorts.

Adding to all of this, Underwood’s relationship with his ex Cassie Randolph has also been under fire, where in court documents she filed a restraining order, alleging that he stalked her and placed a tracking device on her car.

Due to a joint agreement with Randolph, Underwood is limited in what he can say to the press. But in the interview with Variety, he shared he wants to clear the air, because he’s seen the word “abuse” attached to previous reports on their relationship situation.  Colton expressed, “I did not physically touch or physically abuse Cassie in any way, shape or form.”

Randolph broke up with Underwood he shares, and that he was in “such a dark place” because he knew that this would be his last straight relationship and the reality hit him hard.  Underwood clarified: “If there was anything I could do to take more ownership, I would. But also, out of respect to her, I don’t want to get into the details. I want this interview to be the last time I address her, because it’s not fair for her to have her name in articles every time I talk. I’m sorry, and I want her to know that I hope she has the best, most beautiful life.”

As far as if Colton feels ABC should discuss having a gay season of The Bachelor, or if he would come back to appear as its lead, he would only say: “I think they should discuss it.  It should be a conversation. I don’t like speaking in definitives, but I’m not in a position to be in a show like that. I’m at a crossroads in my life right now.”

Watch a portion of the interview below with Colton and Variety below.  Then share your thoughts on how Underwood decided to come out via the comment section and his plans for the near-future.

Ellen DeGeneres to End Her Talk Show After Its 19 Season

Ellen DeGeneres informed her staff yesterday that she has made the decision to end her talk show after its upcoming 19th season.  She will sit down with Oprah Winfrey on the May 13th episode of the The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss her decision to step away.

In an exclusive interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Ellen shared: “When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged – and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore.”

The show’s end comes on the heels of all of the turmoil last summer when several former and current employees accused Ellen of fostering a toxic work environment.  As well, several key producers were let-go as a result.

 

When speaking with THR, DeGeneres said of last summer’s revelations and accusations against her: “It was four solid months. And you have to understand, in that time, someone got into our house and robbed us and I lost four animals — three cats and a dog died. It was a tsunami. When it started, with that stupid ‘someone couldn’t look me in the eye’ or whatever the first thing was, it’s like a crest of a wave. Like, ‘This isn’t going to be that big of a wave.’ And then it just keeps getting bigger and bigger until it was out of control. And I really, honestly, felt like, ‘I don’t deserve this. I don’t need this. I know who I am. I’m a good person.’  And I was sitting back going, ‘If I was someone watching this, I would think, ‘Well, there must be some truth to it because it’s not stopping.’ Of course they’re going to believe this because I’m not addressing it because I was told not to and you can imagine what that felt like. And it’s a lot to live up to. I started saying “be kind to one another” because I really believe people should be kind to one another and so it was easy clickbait to say, ‘Oh, the be kind lady isn’t so kind.’ … I am kind, I’m also a woman and I’m a boss.”

Earlier this morning, The Daily Mall UK reported that Ellen DeGeneres and Warner Brothers, were expected to make an announcement that she will end her talk show after the 2021-2022 season.  According to their sources, DeGeneres told her team she “has had enough and told her team that she’s done.”

It should be noted that the The Ellen DeGeneres Show has seen a steady decline in the ratings as well.  The ratings for total households from February 2020 to February 2021 were down 40% in New York City and Chicago; and in Los Angeles it lost 59%.

Ellen’s talk show has produced over 3,000 episodes.

So, what do you think of Ellen deciding to conclude her talk show? Comment below.
