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.

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.

Coming up as part of Lifetime’s Ripped from the Headlines true crime series of movies, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, is now slated to premiere next month on February 20th at 8 pm ET.

General Hospital’s Kim Delaney (Jackie Templeton) stars in the film, executive produced by Deborah Norville. in which she portrays, Mari Gilbert, a mother who becomes alarmed when her daughter Shannan (Katharine Isabelle) is MIA and doesn’t return home. Knowing her daughter sometimes works as an escort, Mari fears the worst.

As those who know the true life story, Mari’s attempt to find her daughter and the subsequent investigation leads to a chilling discovery – the bodies of several other missing women.

In the real life story, the remains of the women were uncovered accidentally as police searched for Shannan, who went missing after visiting a client, whom she met on Craigslist, in the gated community of Oak Beach on Long Island, and then fleeing the man’s home.   However, police believe that Mari’s unwavering fight to find her daughter which led to finding the other women is not how Shannan ultimately disappeared.

While the case has yet to be solved the film shares, “Though the search for the serial killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon.”

PEOPLE exclusively dropped the trailer over the weekend.  Make sure to check it out.

Once the trailer was released, Delaney shared on her Twitter account: “Amazing director @StanleyMBrooks Thank you so much, Stan!Very special producers, cast and crew. An important story!”

Mark Consuelos on the All My Children Primetime Reboot: “I Know They’re Going to Bring Back Some Fan Favorites”

On Friday, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) was a guest on the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, where he shared his excitement and some insight into the upcoming All My Children primetime reboot, Pine Valley, in development at ABC..

As previously reported, Mark and his wife Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley, AMC) are two of the executive producers on the project.

Consuelos shared on the reboot:All My Children was such a big part of my life and my wife’s life. And you know, I met my wife there obviously, had kids, became a young man on that show, and we got the opportunity to reboot the primetime version and the idea was brought to us, and we’re so excited.  Of all the things that we’ve ever announced that we’re going to do, this is one of the biggest responses we’ve got from our fans. They’re so excited.  It’s a big piece of TV that’s been missing for such a long time, and we’re going to bring it back.”

When avid soap fan and The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood, posed a major question to Consuelos that has been on longtime All My Children fans minds, she got a solid response from him.

Sheryl was trying to get some tea on who might appear in the reboot, when she asked, “Is it going to be the Cortlandts and the Warners? Is it going to be everybody?” Consuelos then responded with: “I know they’re going to bring back some fan favorites, and it will take place in Pine Valley, and I’m really, really excited.”

You can watch a portion of Mark’s virtual visit on The Talk below.

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
