B&B Flashback: Sally Spectra vs Stephanie Forrester


On January 14 2007, The Bold and the Beautiful, and the entire soap fraternity, mourned the loss of actress Darlene Conley. Conley played the role of Sally Spectra from 1988 right up to her death in 2007. We lost an icon of the genre, a true diva that would light up the stage no matter what the occasion. Sally was a fan favourite and would captivate the world with her outrageous outfits, big red hair and passion for the fashion industry. Sally's rivalry with Stephanie Forrester was what established The Bold and the Beautiful as having two mighty fashion labels going head to head for supremacy.

In the past, we have been treated to some magnificent fashion shows, some runway magic and scenes where either Sally or Stephanie end up in swimming pools or lakes abroad in Europe. It's fun and it's what longtime B&B fans remember most whenever Sally and Stephanie cross paths on screen. In November 1991, Sally Spectra and Clarke Garrison became proud parents of Clarke Junior, known to us as C.J. With Sally recovering in the maternity ward, old foe Stephanie couldn't help but visit Sally to give her some much needed advice about the man who has just fathered her child. Enjoy this one folks. It just goes to show how much this show, and the soap world, miss this true lady. We miss you Sally.
