The tears will sure to be flowing on upcoming episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful, as executive producer and head writer Brad Bell pulls out all the stops for fans of the long running series to say goodbye to their long time star, Susan Flannery as Stephanie Forrester!

As many know, Stephanie,  having been given a diagnosis that her lung cancer has returned and is incurable, decides to throw a party in celebration of her life.  So the series is bringing in the beautiful Irish all-female musical ensemble Celtic Woman  for some very special moments.  The group will appear as themselves on the Monday, November 12, and Tuesday, November 13th episodes.  During Stephanie’s life celebration, they will perform their hit single, “The Parting Glass”, a song dedicated to Stephanie by her loving husband, Eric Forrester (John McCook), and then will sing the classic Irish melody, “Danny Boy”.

“I can’t think of a more beautiful way to pay tribute to the character of ‘Stephanie Forrester’ and her Irish heritage than to bring in Celtic Woman to serenade her.”, said Brad Bell.  “Their distinctive voice and angelic melodies were the perfect accompaniment to this powerful and emotional storyline.” 

The current touring ensemble of Celtic Woman features vocalists Chloë Agnew, Lisa Lambe, and Susan McFadden and Celtic Violinist Máiréad Nesbitt.   In 2013, Celtic Woman will embark on a 17-week North American tour.  If you do not know about Celtic Woman, you can check out their website here!

Celtic music is beautiful and haunting at the same time, which seems fitting for the occasion of Stephanie’s party. I’m looking forward it. I’m sure this will one of those moments that will live on and on in soap’s history.

Well said. She deserves such a memorable sendoff.

Again, soaps can lead the way. We in North America can have such a hard time talking about death and dying. This whole storyline is another way to think about it, and truly inspirational.

This is a little off topic ,but I don’t know where else to post it. Bold and Beautiful doesn’t have a comment section like GH. I started watching B&B after ABC cancelled OLTL and AMC. I have a question about the post-partum thing that’s happening to Katie ( Heather Thom is doing a great job). I’m getting really impatient with her “depression.” I may not be fair because don’t know much about postpartum. Is this really they way some mothers can act if they are suffering from it?

Yes unfortunately in some cases postpartum can be as bad as Katie and in some cases worse. Also as you know the actress playing Katie is going on maternity leave so this condition gives them a plausible reason for Katie to exit the canvas for a while. I think HT did an excellant job protraying the confusion and fear that comes having this condition and I am praying her real life delivery and childbirth experience goes better than her character’s

Thanks Mary. I had no idea that it could be so extreme. And I hope the same for real life Heather.

Katie’s isn’t exactly post-partum depression. She is more upset that she won’t live long because she had a heart transplant.

Maybe it’s a combo of post-partum and her heart transplant which explains her ultra-emotions right now.

They are one of my favorite groups and will be wonderful to pay tribute to Stephanie//Susan. I wish they would sing some of their other classics. I love You Lift Me Up and their version of Amazing Grace. I think Chloe has the purist voice.

Note to Michael if you read these comments…I’ve really enjoyed having a place to discuss Bold & Beautiful, especially because I’m new to the show since ABC cancellations. Is there a way you could set up a “board” for us B&B need-to-get-it -off-our-chest/ask-question viewers, because the show doesn’t do it on their own home page. I never had a place to talk about the Liam, Hope and Stephie triangle, and how I wondered why anyone would want to marry Liam.

Mary SF

That is exactly the question fans have been asking for months since he doesn’t seem much of a catch. But to be fair when the character first came to town he was much different and he made a good match with Hope. Then the Spencer connection to Liam came out and the poor boy was never the same again. Right now I think the show played that triangle too much so we might not see it on the front burner for a while, which is good, because one guy can only go back and forth so much without looking like… Read more »

Thanks again Mary. But it ‘s not just him that looks the fool.

i agree. I’m a Scott Clifton fan but Liam is so unlikeable why would any woman want him? Smart women, foolish choices I guess. Or apparently a lack of available young men in L.A? I call The Triangle “Bermuda” because it made all the other characters mysteriously desappear.

Anne Heche in “Extremely Critical Condition”; Still in Coma Following Fiery Car Crash

Although earlier reports over the weekend had soap opera alum and Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World) in stable condition following crashing her car into a home, on Monday an update on her condition looked more grim.

According to a statement provided to Deadline by Heche’s rep: “At this time Anne is in extreme critical condition. She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention. She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident.”

Since last Friday, Heche has been hospitalized following a harrowing incident where she crashed her car which caught fire into a private home in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles.

In addition, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Annie Hernandez told City News Service that investigators obtained a warrant for a blood draw from Heche.

Over the last few days, a new episode of Heche’s podcast “Better Together” with her co-host Heather Duffy was released, which showed the actress slurring her speech.

Erroneous reports said that the podcast which dropped on Friday, was also recorded that day, and that Heche had been drinking prior to her accident during the show.  However, it has come to light that Heche taped that episode last Tuesday, not the day of the crash.

Share your thoughts and prayers for Anne as we continue to monitor and update the situation on the film and TV star, via the comment section below.

The fifth and final season of CW’s Dynasty is currently playing out with the series finale to air in the early fall.

However, filming on the show wrapped this past week for series star Elizabeth Gillies (Fallon) and her on-screen husband, Adam Huber (Liam).  Each of them took to their Instagrams to share heartfelt goodbyes and ‘thank you’s’ for the journey they traveled as part of the reboot of the classic ABC primetime soap opera with its own twist.

Huber shared his thoughts, when he expressed: “That’s a wrap!! When I got the call in 2017 that I was going to be flying out to Atlanta to join the show DYNASTY for a few episodes I had no idea what it would turn into. 4 years of my life and 84 episodes later is what happened. I am beyond grateful for this show. This is the first time I’ve ever really been apart of something like this. I’ve learned a lot. I’ve cried a lot. And I’ve made friendships that will last a lifetime.

A huge thank you to anyone and everyone who was with me on this journey. Thank you to my friends and family for your non stop love and support. My manager and agents who are absolute rockstars. The crew that wakes up day after day working lonnnng hours so we can have a finished product. The writers, directors and producers for making this show the success that it is. The casting director for saying “I think I found our Liam” The entire cast for being so welcoming from the first day I stepped foot on set. The day players, extras, stand ins, all of you!!

And gigantic thank you to all the fans!!! Thank you for staying with us the whole time during this wild ride. Without you watching and binging on whatever platform you watch the show on, we would have not been able to bring you 5 seasons and 108 episodes of DYNASTY craziness. Thank you so much. From the bottom of my heart. This has been an experience I will never forget! 🖤Ps…new episode tonight!! I hope you enjoy the rest of the season! It’s going to be a lot of fun!”

Gillies, simply brought out her inner-Fallon with her Instagram post which said, “Every day, I take one man’s dirt and turn it into diamonds. And digging up insider info is even easier when they assume you work for the airline, instead of owning the plane. Bon Voyage, Fallon 🥂”

Elizabeth’s co-stars were quick to heap praise on the talented actress/singer/director (she directed the two most recent episodes of the series). Rafael de La Fuente who plays Sammy Jo, expressed: ‘What a gift for me to get to work with you for five years. Forever a fan, forever family.”

Pop superstar, Arianna Grande, a longtime friend, and Broadway co-star with Gillies in the musical 13, posted: “Oh my.congratulations, my Liz, on completing this massive and magnificent chapter with Fallon.  she is / you are utterly spectacular. !!!!!!!!! love youuu. sm.”

You can check out their farewell posts below.

So, sad to know that Liz and Adam have wrapped their run as the fifth and final season of Dynasty is coming to a close? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
