Fans wondering, why Ridge didn’t show up at Stephanie’s Goodbye Party? Or, if Ronn Moss  (Ridge) was asked to come back and participate in the episodes, after he quit the series and last aired in September,  got a response from the popular star via Twitter over the weekend.

One of Ronn’s many fans asked him why he did not return for the key episodes that had all of the Forrester family gathered around Stephanie as she bid farewell to each and every one of them, before she took off to live out her final days.  Ronn responded with a tweet stating, “Several reasons. I’m not on the show anymore . They didn’t ask me.”

So what do you think of Ronn not being part of Susan Flannery’s  Stephanie Goodbye Party episodes?  And,  Ridge not being there for his mother, realizing B&B had some reshuffling to do with the timing of two of their key stars deciding to leave the series? Let us know your thoughts!

I totally disagree. I’ve watched B&B since day 1 and of all her kids Stephanie was the closest to Ridge. They had the biggest emotional tie sand I was extremely upset that Bill Bell thought this would be lost on people. He should have been invited back or did something when Ron Moss was still on camera. So ridiculous it just may make me stop watching after so many years. Extremely disappointed in seeing there goodbyes played out on screen.

I totally agree with you. In a case like this, all her children SHOULD HAVE BEEN there to say goodbye

Um Shelly, that should be BRAD Bell, not BILL Bell. Brad Executive Produces and Head Writes the show. Just a point of reference.

Yeah it should have been BRAD Bell not Bill Bell. As an original viewer of both shows it obviously was a mistake.

Exactly. They need to go a different route anyway…why not have another actor replace him? the circle of always going back to Ridge…why not try something new and exciting??

I totally agree I thought it was absolutely stupid to not have him there at such a sad time. He and his mum were very close on the show and for him to not be there when she was dying was ridiculous. Even if for some reason he could not or wouldn’t come back for these episodes why couldn’t they just at least mention that he were there with her at the cabin to see her while no one else was there. We all know that Ridge would never abandon his mother at a time such as this!! Super disappointed..… Read more »

Its completely unbelievable that Ridge, who is still attached to both of Stephanies apron strings, wouldnt be there for her death.

As nice as the episodes have been its been a glaring absence.

Ronn Moss states what I already thought. Still, I wish something could have been negotiated. Stephanie is dying and Ridge was her passion. I would have liked to see him there. I suspect there is a recast ahead and there should be. Ridge just cannot disappear, and a new actor with diferent energy may bring something to the character Moss did not, providing new directions as we seek in midlife. For Ridge he could find closure with Brooke or Taylor, but with one of them for good…. make peace with his children and the man he considers his father… seek… Read more »

In the show’s reality it made no sense for Stephanie’s oldest son not to come to the party. I know they said later that Stephanie asked him not to come because she didn’t want Ridge to face all his drama with Brooke. And on some level I do get why Brad Bell was not prepare yet for Brooke and Ridge to meet after the split. Maybe he wanted fans to remember Ronn and Kelly in their characters happy at their wedding and bringing back Ronn as Ridge just for one episode would spoil that. Personally I think they could have… Read more »

That would have been a great idea! Didn’t think of it myself, but it works. If they couldn’t- or wouldn’t want to- get Ronn back, that scenario would have provided the audience with some sense of closer while still enforcing the notion that Ridge as we knew him is gone from the canvas. I haven’t exactly watched the episodes other than a few clips, but I heard characters say that Ridge was coming. I don’t like that Brad in essence deceived the audience by telling them he was coming, knowing he wasn’t inviting Ronn back…or making any substitute plans as… Read more »

Mary SF, as per your question, yes, Ronn was off the show briefly and Lane Davies (Mason Capwell, Santa Barbara) substituted while Ronn was out for a bit. I don’t remember why Ronn was off the show at the time but I do know that it was Lane Davies who subbed for Ronn.

It wasn’t necessary for him to return. Ronn Moss left the show to do other things, so he should just move on. I hope they don’t replace “Ridge”, though. IMO, he is no longer necessary.

RM did not leave due to taking a pay cut, he left to pursue his music dream. Money was never a factor in his leaving.

Michael
Guest

Toscanti, You are sadly mistaken. Ronn Moss DID indeed leave because he was none too happy with the contract offer he got from the brass at B&B and CBS which I can see from Ronn’s point of view because if Brad Bell had not done all of those remote location shoots in the last year (with Italy likely costing the show upwards of around $2 million to do), he would have had the money to pay Ronn. However, it was not the sole reason he decided to leave the show. He also left the show because he needed to recharge… Read more »

bc I agree with you but maybe he was thinking he might better go to other avenues for a living because this country becoming where everbody is on the dole, how long can soaps go on. Hate to tell you but when you destroy what our country was founded on sooner or later and trust me it will be sooner you become just like Greece. Sooner or later you will use the taxpayer myself and others who are contributing all of our money. That’s right our money not Washington’s.

No doubt about it, Ridge definitely should have been there because of his extremely close tie to Stephanie. Additionally, the reason for his departure was really idiotic. Seriously, over a text from Deacon. If Moss will not return, then B&B needs to recast Ridge.

It’s a soap. Actors and their characters come and go and we get it. Disappointing but B&B is not one story or one character.

Would have been nice for him to return if just for a private scene with Steph. If Ronn had wanted to attend, I’m sure he could have reached out.

I think Brad Bell thought Ronn Moss was going to give in and come back. If he didn’t he would have filmed some phone conversations before Moss left. I know what happens on the 26th so I will skip it this love fest BB has with KKL makes me sick . I just wish she had left the show when RM did.

Mary SF
Guest

At first it was endearing and sweet that Brooke and Stephanie made peace, but like everything else B&B had to go and over play it to the point it became rather silly and sickening sweet. And no way any husband worth a damn would leave his dying wife to attend a business meeting. If Brooke is the only one there when Stephanie passes I will be shaking my head in disbelief that is the way Brad Bell wanted to play it.

Shame on Bell for not asking for the sake of the storyline and the show. With Ridge and Stephanie gone, B & B may very well be cancelled. Stephanie is still on the show until November 26, so there is still time for Ron Moss to come back just once more. After she dies Ron can continue on with his plans without skipping a beat. This should be about what the fans want and not any egos about a contract! Please come back one more time Ron for us and not for Bell! You are truly missed on the show… Read more »

If its true that the Italy remote cost $2million, then that in itself is truly idiotic, what’s worse is that they went all the way over there for Liam and Hope’s wedding and the characters aren’t even together anymore!!! What a waste!!!!! And for Brooke to give Bill a pass and be flirting with him after he’s spent the last 2yrs tormenting her daughter is beyond idiotic….the whole Steffy/Liam/Hope stroy was way overplayed and now they have Liam and Steffy all lovey dovey and dating….Liam and Hope never even had a chance bc someone was always coming between them(Rick, Bill,… Read more »

I agree with Richard. What’s up with everyone coming between Hope and Liam. But I have to wonder if the addition of Don Diamont, aka Bill Spencer had something to do with Ron Moss leaving. A new Alpha male on the show probably didn’t set to well with “Ridge Forrester”

I do not know the Bell’s, but based on watching the shows (Y&R, B&B) when William (Bill) Bell was still with us, verses Brad’s tenure at the helm. I am overall profoundly disappointed that Brad has allowed ego to diminish the work of art his father created. Removing the option for Mr Moss to return (by at least not asking him) for one scene to bring a close to the legacy of his fathers incredible brillance and creation of “The Bold and The Beautiful” is sad, disturbing and gives what I believe is a clear blue print of his loyalty… Read more »

Unfortunately, a soap opera is a business so at the end of the day the powers that be care more about the bottom line than honoring legacies. It is a shame, because many viewers feel as you do that watching a soap is can be a part of life’s experience and not just entertainment. We grew up on these stories, watching them with our mothers, maybe fathers, aunts or uncles, best friends, children and in some cases grandchildren. So we are disappointed when those experiences are reduced to ratings and a dollar sign. Whether you continued to watch or not… Read more »

I think it stinks Ron Moss wasn’t asked or didn’t that he didn’t ask them to let him show up at the party to say good bye. I think he has gotten too big for his britches. Too have this “I am so much in love with each other wddding.” between Brook and Ridge and then he qiuits. I think the reason the writers gave that he didn’t come back was so lame it makes me think they are under estimating we the viewers. Kill him off if he thinks he is too good for the show.

Let’s not forget that Susan Flannery did indeed not re-sign her contract HOWEVER she did stick around so that Brad B. could give both the character and the actor the proper sendoff that was so deserving. Which was way more professional and classy than what Ronn Moss did. Not to mention that if he truely valued and cared about Susan as a co-worker and friend — HE himself should have talked with Brad B. about such an a arrangement to come back and surprise the cast, especially Susan — since Susan even attempted to intervene and asked him to come… Read more »

Just saw some of stephanies last episode today but could not watch the end due to it not making sense. I dont care how long Brooke has been on the show, she should not have been the person with Stephanie in the end. Bell messed this storyline up not asking Ron Moss to return @ least for this last episode. After today Bell and Moss could have done whatever they wish. The fans were the ones who got hurt! Ron Moss said one of the reasons he did not return is that he was not asked! THAT WAS VERY DISAPOINTING… Read more »

Shame on Ronn Moss and B&B for not thinking of their fans!!!!!!! Ron should have been there as the devoted and loving son, Ridge to say his final farewell to Stephanie. Even though Ron noted he was not invited to return for Stephanie’s final farewell, he should have invited himself and B&B should have gladly arranged for a special guess appearance. It was not fair that we, the fans lost two great actors without having a chance to see them appear together at such touching time. Ron’s departure ended one of the soap opera’s greatest love couples ever. Shame, shame… Read more »

Yes, the show has certainly changed over the years. I was drawn in by the Brooke/Caroline/Ridge/ triangle and Brooke’s cop fiance-remember that! The writing has suffered ups and downs over the years and with that the characters were suppose to elvove. But one thing remained a constant-Ridge and his mom. I guess they thought a Brooke/Steph truce would be a replacement. Poor writing is what will be the death knell for B&B.

I’ve been watching the B & B for 30 years. Ron Moss was my heartthrob as well as many other women’s. Lately, we was put on the back burner and not used as much as Bill’s son. I know the staff likes to appeal to the younger set but the older viewers who have watched for years are very faithful. I think they should bring Moss back, give him what he requests as far as salary (if that was the issue) and give him equal time with the younger set. Brooke is great as was Stephanie. Everyone likes to see… Read more »

We are only just viewing the final episodes in Australia now with the goodbyes said at the party today. I along with so many other fans cannot believe Ridge was not present if only in a small scene. The character has just basically disappeared and even more obvious in this absence is the brief return of sisters Felicia and Kristans appearance. It’s sooooo messed up. I would go so far to compare it to the final episode of Friends and not seeing Rachel or Monica for the final episode. It makes no sense and professionally speaking wasn’t well planned for… Read more »

Ronn Moss not being on the soap just isn’t the same.
Everyone wishes you could bring him back since you did not write him off. He is in Europe at the other location designing.
Also, would like to see Thorne in the storylines. He is very good and he needs to be seen and heard much more then he is. Where is Thorne’s daughter? Like she dropped off the earth. Have not seen her appear as a teen ager or young adult.
The show just insn’t as good without Stefanie and Ridge. I am a faithful viewer.

Just watched the episode where Stephanie dies in Brooke’s arms. having followed this show for over 2 decades i have to say i thought it was ridiculous that Brooke was the one & only person that Stephanie wanted to be with when she died. shouldn’t it have been her husband Eric, sister Pam, her son Thorn, daughters Felicia, Kristin or even her best friend Taylor? you will be sadly missed Susan Flannery!

There will never be another Ridge, he was that unique. I have also watched since its insertion and for me its been going down hill for some time now. For example, enough already with the Hope, Steffie & Liam Saga! I know several friends who have quit watching this soap because of poor writing story lines. Most women, housewives who watch range from 30’s-60’s in age and arent interested any more in these teenagers. So in closing we don’t care who Liam picks! COME UP WITH NEW STORY LINES!!

After watching B & B since its beginning here in Oz in March 87, I must say I have been very saddened by the recent departures of Ronn Moss and Susan Flannery. To my viewers mind there is no excuse for Ridge not attending his mother’s passing. After all it was the passion of this bind which was the glue for all story lines. Brooke of course has and always will be my favourite, but if they are thinking that Bill is going to provide some foil for romance and drama I am GONE!…thanks Ronn and Susan and blessings from… Read more »

That probably explains why soap operas are not real. I just find it disgusting that the people of B&B did not invite Ronn Moss (ex-Ridge) to return although he had been on the show since it aired in 1987. He is a part of the show regardless of someone else (Thorsten Kaye) taking his place as Ridge Forrester. I am also upset about some other actors/actresses who were taken off the show as well. I miss these characters so much: Bridget, Samantha Kelly, Caitlin Ramirez, Hector Ramirez, Darla Forrester, Sally Spectra, Macy Alexander, Nick Marone, Dayzee Carter, so on. I… Read more »
