Well, everyone wanted to hear from Susan Flannery (Stephanie) yesterday to find out her thoughts on two things 1) What did she think about capping her legendary career with a Daytime Emmy Nomination for Stephanie’s swan song  on The Bold and the Beautiful? 2) What did she think of her long time co-star, and scene-mate Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) finally landing a Daytime Emmy Nomination?

The answers to that came today from TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan in a new chat with the four-time Daytime Emmy winner, who is one of the favorites to bring home the gold again this year in the Outstanding Lead Actress in A Drama Series category.  Flannery also discusses her on-screen death, something she had not previously done any press on.   Here are a few excerpts!

Susan on how she found about the Daytime Emmy nod yesterday: “Brad Bell called and said, ‘I’ve tried desperately to wait until 7 a.m. to call you. You’ve been nominated!’ The first thing out of my mouth was: ‘What about Katherine?’ It’s so funny. I was so excited about Katherine, I forgot to ask who else had been nominated in my category.”

Susan on how she and Katherine submitted the same episode which both garnered them a nomination when Stephanie died and what she thought of it:  “I loved it. Toward the end, someone at the show told me Stephanie was going to die in, like, three weeks and I went up to Brad’s office and said, ‘You’re gonna have Brooke there with her at the end, right? He looked up and gave me this great big grin and said, Yes, that’s who it is.’  I said, ‘Fabulous!’ I think it worked out really well.”

Susan on if she will show up at the Daytime Emmys:  “Yes I will be there — just to watch Katherine win!”

What do you think about Susan’s sentiments for Katherine Kelly Lang? Would you like to see Susan and Katherine both win for their heartbreaking final scenes together on B&B?  Let us know!

I hope KKL wins. She was finally nominated despite there being years when she should have been. It’s tough between Susan and Heather in this category. Maybe we’ll have a tie!

Susan deserves this Emmy for her incredible last performances!!! Oh boy B&B without her is nothing…I don’t think any other show was so dependent on one character like b&b. Susan made Stephanie truly an unique and unforgettable!!!

Well my sentimental favorite is for Peggy McKay the woman is 85 years old even though I do not watch DOOL my sister does and says her reel was very good. SF has 4 emmys I am sorry I would like to see a lady who has been in the industry this long finally get some recognition. I use to watch it DOOL and I always feel that soap get’s the shaft. Heather Tom won last year I just get tired of the same old same old.

OLTL Favorite Susan Batten to Guest-Star on General Hospital

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
