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.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
