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.”

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.

Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”

Judith expressed to all that helped her have a successful career: “The fact is, if you were not in my life, the dream of this little girl sitting alone in her room in Trenton, N.J., reading plays and acting out Shakespeare passages, would never have come to pass. All of you have made and are continuing to make the powerful difference in my life and the lives of so many others  So, I say to all of you with deep and profound gratitude, thank you.  You remind me of who we all really and truly are. We are each other’s star.”
