There is news out today from Soap Opera Digest on the converse of what was reported yesterday by CBS Soaps In Depth that Daytime Emmy winning star,  Susan Flannery (Stephanie) of The Bold and the Beautiful is now NOT leaving the show but staying put.

What is being reported is that Flannery had asked to be written out of B&B after 25 years, but the show managed to work out a new deal with the daytime legend.

Brad Bell, B&B’s head writer and executive producer made a statement to SOD:  “Susan, for quite some time, was thinking she needed a break or just have some personal time.  She’s been through a lot personally; we know that she had her own battle with cancer and she’s had such an amazing career that she will continue to have as Stephanie Forrester, but I think it’s not so much as a disagreement between her and the show, but more Susan figuring out where she is right now and what she needs. Now, Susan is going to have an incredible time with a new storyline that we’ve never seen before; something completely unique and interesting.”

We reached to a B&B representative who could not comment on this time, but it seems in the past that Susan has opted to leave and then brought back with a front burner story.   We will keep you updated as developments come to light on the status of Flannery with the CBS soap!

A tearful Bregman emotionally said, “I can’t thank you enough for, I’m so overwhelmed.”
