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?

Mary SF

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.

I love Celtic Women and would love to see Grant Alexander play Ridge Forrester.

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 a fool.

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.

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
