BREAKING NEWS: Susan Flannery EXITS The Bold and The Beautiful!


Another original cast member is out at The Bold and The Beautiful. CBS Soaps In Depth is reporting Susan Flannery has decided to leave the series. Flannery has portrayed the role of fashion matriarch Stephanie Forrester since B&B's first episode on March 23, 1987.


According to the magazine's website, Flannery has agreed to a short-term contract, which will give showrunner Bradley Bellsome wiggle room, script-wise. Flannery's departure comes on the heels of Ronn Moss (Ridge) opting to leave the series, and Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) signing a new deal. John McCook (Eric), your move!
