Another star leaves Bold and the Beautiful


In two short weeks, CBS' the Bold and the Beautiful has lost 50 years of acting, as two regular cast members since day one have left the show.

First it was Ronn Moss, who played Forrester Creations Empire CEO Ridge Forrester, who stepped away from the show. Now, Susan Flannery, who played Stephanie Forrester, has left as well.

The actress has signed a short-term contract so a conclusive story line can be delivered to long-time fans of Stephanie, according to a TV Guide.

Moss and Flannery made up half of the "core four" actos who had been with the show since it launched in 1987, along with Katherine Kelly Lang and John McCook

Lang has committed to remaining with the show, but McCook hasn't commented one way or the other.

Flannery was beloved for her work as Stephanie. She came in at #1 in the Top 50 Soap Actresses of All Time poll on the blog We Love Soaps in 2010. She also won three Emmys for the role, giving her four for her career (she won an earlier one for her work on Days of Our Lives).

Can the show survive these losses? This is a whole lot to lose off the top all at once. I don't watch soaps, but both of these departures seem like big deals.

Sadly, I believe this show is finished. Too bad since it's been the second highest rated Soap. I guess it's good to go out on top! I figured Susan Flannery would be leaving soon, but was hoping to see her for a little longer. I think her departure on the heels of Ronn Moss is too big of a loss for the show. I've watched this program for over 20 years, it's been a escape from busy days at work. I wish Susan and Ronn the best. They will be missed. It would be nice if they make appearances every now and then, but I'm not holding my breath. Good luck guys!
