Stephanie Forrester Has A Few ‘Choice’ Words For B&B’s Brooke On Her Wedding Day To Ridge, As Susan Flannery Returns As The Voice Of Stephanie!



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 agree. I never took to Thorsten Kaye as Ridge, either.

So very true! They all love Brook so much forgetting she has had sex with the whole family! Lol

Well, that could explain why the men in the family love her! 😉

Stephanie should have said I do not care who you marry these two guys are not my sons one has a Irish accent the other a Australian

That is hilarious!! Very true.

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.

I enjoyed the episode.

Loved it! So nice to hear Susan’s voice.


Kathie Lee Gifford Reacts to ‘The Bachelor’ Joey Graziadei Having ‘No Idea’ Who She Is On ‘Live with Kelly and Mark’

Let’s set the stage! Kathie Lee Gifford was previously mentioned by Today Show’s Hoda Kotb and Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos as someone who would make a great lead for the upcoming dating-reality series competition, The Golden Bachelorette.

Then came the Wednesday February 28th episode of Live with Kelly and Mark, when the current ‘Bachelor’ leading man, Joey Graziadei was the guest.

During his interview, Kelly and Mark asked Graziadei what his thoughts were on Gifford becoming the first-ever ‘Golden Bachelorette’.

Graziadei’s response was: “I will be honest… I have no idea who Kathie Lee Gifford is.” That prompted some boos and some laughs from the in-studio audience. Joey added, ‘I’m only 28! I’m sorry!”

In a response to a post on X featuring the faux-pas, Gifford reacted by saying: “I don’t expect him to know me. I’ve got shoes that are older than this kid is!”

Gifford received the Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2019. She has also been in the chair occupied by Ripa on ‘Live’. From 1985 to 2000, Kathie Lee and Regis Philbin were the co-hosts of  the morning talk show. She then went on to co-host the fourth hour of Today in 2008 and continued till 2019.

When E! News asked Kotb about Gifford potentially getting the nod as the “Golden Bachelorette”, she shared, “By the way, she would be a 10 plus, and she’d get her choice of all the men, and you know how she is all flirty and cute.”

So, what do you think about Joey not knowing who Kathie Lee is? Could it possibly be that ABC would cast Gifford as the ‘Golden Bachelorette’? Comment below.

Brian Gaskill Previews Seth’s Next Move on The Young and the Restless: “It’s the Beginning of Everything”

Coming up on the Friday, March 1st episode of The Young and the Restless be on the lookout for what could send Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) into yet another spiral with her alcohol addiction.

As viewers have recently witnessed, Jordan (Colleen Zenk), in disguise with red wig, has become ‘fast’ friends with Seth as a drinking buddy at a local dive bar. She has been egging him on to become ‘friends’ with Nikki, but also cited to him, how Nikki disappeared on her when she needed help in her attempt to get sober (all fabricated, of course).

Seth was able to get Nikki to agree to meet him one day for coffee or for an outing, even though she knows that he is also struggling to get sober and was not going to be a good AA sponsor for her.  Now, the trap is set.

Taking to his account on X, Gaskill shared on Wednesday, “Look for me Friday I think on Young and the Restless (tomorrow in Canada) pay attention. It’s the beginning of everything…”

Gaskill returned to daytime television in early January in his new recurring role on Y&R. Soap fans previously knew of his work as Bobby Warner on All My Children, Rafe Kovich on Port Charles, Ozzy Marone on The Bold and the Beautiful and Dylan Lewis on Guiding Light.

So, what are you theories of what’s about to go down? Will Seth lure Nikki into a trap knowing or unknowingly? Will he become obsessed with her? Will Jordan sneak into the Newman Ranch, and terrorize Nikki? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

In the meantime for some clues of what’s next in Nikki’s battle with the bottle, check out the Michael Fairman Channel’s recent interview with Melody Thomas Scott below.

Vivica A. Fox, Jonelle Allen and Sally Sussman Revisit ‘Generations’ Classic Catfight and If They Would Be Down for a Revival

As it is Black history month, you can’t help but a shed a light on the groundbreaking soap opera, Generations. It was almost 35-years ago that NBC took a gamble on a new soap opera with an African-American family at its epicenter.

Generations was created by renowned soap opera writer, Sally Sussman and premiered back on Monday, March 27, 1989. Ironically, the show was up against the top-rated daytime drama The Young and the Restless and for 13 months it landed in the bottom of the ratings, until NBC canceled it in January 1991.

One of the most memorable moments in the series short history was a knock-down drag-out catfight between the characters of Maya (Vivica A. Fox) and Doreen (Jonelle Allen), with the late Kristoff St. John (Adam Marshall) in the middle of it all.

Speaking with, Fox recalled, “We just didn’t want it to look fake, because there’s nothing worse when you can see the stunt double. As you can see, I kind of dig doing fight scenes.”

Allen offered up: “The lines were scripted. What we were doing while we were saying them – the earrings and all of that stuff — was not. I added the kicking off the shoes and the pulling up the train. The actors didn’t get hurt, but the cameraman could have, because when I kicked off my shoes, I kicked my shoe so far it almost hit the camera!”

Jonelle also remembered Kristoff almost getting injured in the scenes, recalling: “He almost got beaten up. We were so in it, and he’s trying to break us apart, but we were pumped. The fight itself was choreographed. Him walking in and breaking it up was not, so he could have gotten hurt. He just thought he’d come in and separate us, but we were still going at it.”

Sussman shared the scenes cultural impact: “It put the show in a different stratosphere. And I remember less than a year later, Y&R copied it. A lot of people copied it. All the subsequent (catfights) that have been forced upon people were not motivated. This one was so motivated, that even though Maya was the aggressor, you agreed with her. Doreen had it coming, but you can’t overstate how long (the tension) was built up between them.”

So, is it time for a Generations 2.0 ? Sussman believes it just might be, “Over the last number of years, several young writers – I’m talking very young, younger than 30 — who love soaps of all different stripes, have been reaching out to me about how much they love the show, because there are so many episodes on YouTube. They say how much they love the show, and that I must try and do a revival.”

Jonelle Allen says she would be down too, expressing: “Revisiting these people later, and then seeing all the babies that were born who would be adults now and seeing what’s up with their stories, would be exciting. And Sally’s a great storyteller.”

Vivica A. Fox summed it up best, “I would be totally game for a revival …. I’d love to see soap operas make a comeback.”

So, did you watch ‘Generations’ when it aired on NBC? Do you recall your reaction to the Maya and Doreen catfight? And with Peacock streaming Days of our Lives, would they consider a series order for a reboot of a series such as ‘Generations’ too? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below. But first, check out that classic catfight!
