This week on episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) tied the knot yet again, and this time at the Forrester mansion.

On Friday’s installment, there was an extra special touch and voice to the proceedings.

Susan Flannery returned as the voice of Stephanie in the Forrester matriach’s painting above the mantel in the Forrester mansion living room.

In story, when Brooke walks towards the painting missing and thinking about her old friend, once nemesis, Stephanie … suddenly the painting is speaking to her. Stephanie calls Brooke, “The slut of the valley” and that makes Brooke realize it is Stephanie reaching out to her from beyond the grave.  All in all, Stephanie wants to ensure that Brooke will look after her son, Ridge, and to also ensure that no one displaces her from the mantel ever again!

Katherine Kelly Lang delivered another touching, funny, and poignant performance while carrying on the tradition of the enduring Stephanie and Brooke relationship that lasted over two and a half decades on-camera on The Bold and the Beautiful.

Watch the moments after the jump! Then let us know what you thought of the Bridge wedding and the Stephanie and Brooke scene in the comment section below!

    I would have been ok with Bridge’s 90th wedding attempt, if the writing wasn’t so over the top about how they’re destiny. B&B should know better, mainly that their audience aren’t idiots. We know that six months ago, Brooke married Bill, whom Brad Bell had described as the love of her life in an interview, and two months before that, she was engaged to marry Ridge, who was hot for his step-mother. Ridge married Caroline and told her he had never known love like that before, and before her, he’d been engaged to Katie, and he’d dumped Brooke for her! Come on now. And why were the Avants and Coco, people who didn’t know Bridge at all, revellng in their love as if they’d witnessed it first-hand? Did B&B forget that just a few weeks ago, Thorne, Rick and Maya were gnashing their teeth at Brooke forgiving Ridge for all he’d done to her?

    I guess if I had to sum it up, I’d say that the production values were terrific, although they need to pick a new set for weddings to take place. But the writing was over the top, and ridiculous with everyone forgetting all the non-Bridge romantic history these two had had, with many of the same people in the wedding party!!

    Although I never took to Thorsten Kaye as Ridge, I did enjoy the moment between Brooke and Stephanie. It brought back a lot of good memories of the old days, and the wonderful love hate relationship that will forever be the mainstay of the two of them. It was nice to have Susan Flannery back, even if it was a few minutes of a voice over. It was a touching scene and it added to the moment. It would be nice for old time sake to see one of Stephanie’s patented face slaps. As I always said, Susan Flannery, in my opinion, was and always will be the queen of the soap opera face slap.

    I truly enjoyed the whole story line
    I truly hope this time be the last time that Ridge and Brooke get married.
    I would like to see a married couple stay together, grown old together.
    I would like to see real life issues
    I agree the voice of Susan F was the icing on the cake.
    It was a great show
    I really enjoyed the wedding and all of the extras
    Forgiveness is really a powerful thing, and it is something that should be presented on the Soaps.
    Thank you

    And in three weeks, they will be divorced…? Sigh. If this is destiny, then let Ridge and Brooke be the new core couple and let them be. So over B&B weddings. They mean nothing.

OLTL Alum Renee Elise Goldsberry On Performing Her Showstopper “Satisfied” In ‘Hamilton’ Premiering On Disney+ Today

We loved her as Evangeline Williamson on One Life to Live, and the Broadway world loved her in her Tony Award-winning role as Angelica Schuyler in the musical Hamilton, which today bows on the filmed version on Disney+.  Of course, we are talking about the fabulous Renee Elise Goldsberry who has talent abounds.

In Hamilton, Goldsberry performs a showstopper “Satisfied” as Angelica makes the ultimate sacrifice giving up the man she loves Hamilton played by Lin-Manuel Miranda) to her sister for her sister, Eliza’s (Phillipa Soo) happiness.

Now taking the version of this memorable moment in the theatre and bringing it to life on film also makes for an exciting performance and piece of creative work.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times out today, Renee talks about executing this number in the show just right: “There are things that are technically challenging about that number: on top of the words, there’s the movement and the fact that we’re doing the previous number in reverse the whole time. It was a lot of things to juggle, but that was never hard, that was all intellectual. Even the rap was relatively easy. The most challenging part to sing is that final toast.This is an extremely well-written song. Every word is crafted to analytically take this woman on an emotional, life-altering decision for these three lives. That decision was such a monumentally painful and beautiful thing to do that by the time I’d get to that moment in which she makes that decision, I was so devastated that it was hard to sing that toast. She’s conflicted because, clearly, she wants to stay around this guy, she recognizes his brilliance, but she gets that Eliza is the one. So I imagine this woman having to give this toast to this community, in spite of the pain she felt.I was always worried that somehow or another, I wouldn’t be able to live up to the brilliance of the end of that song because emotionally, I was just trying to manage it. It took me maybe until Broadway to feel OK about it.”

When asked how she felt about seeing “Satisfied” in the movie version of Hamilton available everywhere Friday on Disney+, Goldsberry added: :Seeing it from the audience’s point of view for the first time, I realized there was a whole ‘nother level of storytelling that was going on, separate from me. I mean, Howell Binkley’s lighting design!  And Andy Blankenbuehler’s brilliant choreography, which I could always only see in my peripheral vision. It’s a huge number with the entire company onstage just killing it and basically turning back time with their bodies, and I’m standing in the middle, talking out like a deer in the headlights to the audience about a burst of things that I have to grapple with immediately. I’m very grateful that he made my job much easier.”

Watch a clip of Renee’s performance in the film version of Hamilton below.

Now, let us know if you are planning to watch the highly-anticipated Hamilton over the fourth of July weekend via the comment section and if you are excited to see Renee in her award-winning winning in it?
