The Bold and the Beautiful



Shortly after Soap Opera Network reported on Friday, August 24 that Sean Kanan was headed back to CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" as Deacon Sharpe, the actor himself tweeted "I never said I'm coming back guys. Let's not stoke the fire of the rumor mill." While the tweet seemed to contradict our reporting, Soap Opera Network has re-confirmed with the show and Kanan's management team who assure us that "Yes...he is coming back." So what happened? It looks like Kanan was not aware that the show was confirming his return to the press, which resulted in some confusion.
Despite Soap Opera Digest reporting on Tuesday that she was staying, TV Line is now reporting that Monday's report by CBS Soaps In Depth was correct when it said actress Susan Flannery had informed producers and writers at "The Bold and the Beautiful" that she planned to leave the series at the end of her contract. To compensate, Flannery agreed to sign a short-term deal that would allow her to wrap up Stephanie Forrester's 25-year storyline.

Soap Opera Digest held off on reporting any news of Susan Flannery's reported decision to leave CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" yesterday, but today there seems to be a reason why. According to the magazine's website, Flannery is staying on as Stephanie Forrester.
Just days after announcing that she had signed a new two-year contract with CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful," Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke Forrester) finds herself in an unusual position for the first time in over 25 years.
Soaps In Depth is reporting that CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" is about to lose another "core four" member as Susan Flannery (Stephanie Forrester) has informed producers and the shows writing team that she plans to leave the series at the end of her newly signed short-term contract. Flannery, like the departing Ronn Moss (soon-to-be ex-Ridge Forrester), has been with the show since it debuted on March 23, 1987 - more than 25 years ago!
If you're a current owner of the Roku set-top box that enables you to stream video content from numerous providers such as Hulu, Netflix, HBOGO, Showtime, and others, you probably already noticed that CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" has been providing its content in three distinct collections ("Most Shocking Moments," "Catfights and Brawls," and "Ridge & Brooke & Taylor"). For the rest of us without Roku, this might be the incenstive we needed to make our very first purchase.

Back in March of 2011, Carlos Pelz, a former hairstylist of CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful," filed a lawsuit against CBS Television, Bell-Phillip Television Productions and "B&B" senior supervisors Ron Weaver and Jody Lawrence-Miller, claiming defamation after learning of a March 2010 internal memo that cited him as "lazy, ambivalent, produced poor-quality work, was incompetent and was unfit to continue as 'key' hairstylist for the show," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Last week, Pelz lost his case after the overseeing judge dismissed his claims on summary judgment.
