A Flannery Farewell?
Will Susan Flannery truly be calling it quits in the near future? The star of The Bold and the Beautiful recently covered this and other topics with TV Guide Canada: Are you really planning on retiring in a couple of years? Or is this just another great scheme of Stephanie’s?
Susan Flannery: [laughs] Yes, I am retiring — and it’s going to be sooner rather than later. I haven’t set a date in my mind, but it’s not in the too-far distant future.

TVG: No! So that sound we hear is Brad [Bell, The Bold and the Beautiful's executive producer/head writer] constructing a dungeon chamber to keep you under his lock and key!
Flannery: [laughs] I don’t know about that. You know, life is short and I had a great run. I’m not leaving in the next four to five months, but I am definitely headed towards leaving the show.

TVG: My therapist is going love this. [sighs] If you had your druthers, how would you like to see Stephanie written out of the show?
Flannery: You know, someone asked me that and all I can say is I would trust however Brad decided to write me out; however best he thinks my exit should play out. Brad’s the writer — and I have a lot of respect for him — so, I wouldn’t even think to suggest anything.
