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.

Soap fans remember them as Adriana Cramer and Cristian Vega on ABC’s One Life to Live, and now real-life duo, Melissa and David Fumero are adding to their family with news this weekend from Melissa that she is pregnant with their second child.

Melissa posted a pic of her with growing baby bump sharing: “Oh yeah, I’m hella pregnant. To be honest, I haven’t felt like posting about it because this pregnancy has been way harder and… I don’t feel that cute? But yesterday I got a really intense massage, an awesome chiropractic adjustment, and my hair feels thicker… so I feel a little bit cute today.”  To which her husband, David commented back to her Instagram post with a humorous: “Wait …. WHAT?!”

The Fumeros are already the proud parents of their 3-year-old son, Enzo who often appears on the couple’s individual Instagram account posts.

Since OLTL, Melissa has gone on to star in the hit comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine opposite Andy Samberg, while David also guest-starred on the series.  Meanwhile, David has also been recently seen in the series Power.

News of Melissa’s pregnancy comes shortly after NBC renewed Brooklyn Nine-Nine for its eight season, even before its upcoming seventh season does not even begin to air till February 6th, 2020.

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R’s Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

This week saw the arrival on the soap scene of two characters who look to figure heavily into story in the towns of Salem and Genoa City.  First, over at Days of our Lives during their first week of episodes with their time-jump, Brock Kelly appeared in his first scenes as Evan, the manny, to little David.

On DAYS, Evan looks to being taking an interest in a grieving and distraught Sonny (Freddie Smith), who is dealing with the anniversary of his mother’s death and that his husband, Will (Chandler Massey) is in prison for the crime that killed her (whatever that is has yet to be revealed).

For Brock Kelly this is not his first time on DAYS, having last been on the show back in 2005 as Abigail’s (then played by Ashley Benson) first boyfriend, Josh.

Over at Y&R, the much talked about Chance Chancellor finally arrived in Genoa City, and already had a confrontation with Cane (Daniel Goddard), helped save the day in a hostage crisis, and more.

Actor Donny Boaz has already mixed things up with many a resident of the town and shared scenes with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mark Grossman (Adam), and more.  This is Boaz’s first daytime soap.  The last time Chance was in Genoa City he was played by John Driscoll.
