Leave it to The Bold and the Beautiful to go all out for the departing Susan Flannery, now only on-camera, but behind-the-scenes.   And today, B&B released this absolutely entertaining, clever, and oh so sweet video of what went down the last time Susan Flannery headed to the set!

The date was October 18th, which marked Emmy award-winning actress Susan Flannery’s last tape day on Stage 31 at CBS Television City.  For almost 26 years, this iconic actress has played the role of Forrester family matriarch “Stephanie Forrester”.   The B&B, Y&R, The Price is Right and Late Late Show’s cast and crews as well as many employees of CBS, gathered together to salute Susan, but check out how they did it!  See if you can identify all the cast members in the video!!

A very special shout out to The Bold and the Beautiful’s head honcho, Brad Bell and producer, Casey Kasprzyk who produced this video, and Casey’s oh-so-clever and fun direction! Watch it after the jump, and let us know if you enjoyed this as much as we did!

    So cute! Thank you Susan Flannery!!! Have fun with your new projects! Team Stephanie!!!


    heidi replied

    After watching it a few more times… it clearly responds to some rather mean comments posted on an earlier story about Susan and I am glad they spoofed them. Isn’t she lovely is soooooooo true and hasn’t she endured a lot of health issues and still acted up a storm! To a lovely, and talented, and courageous Lady… Susan Flannery! Go team Stephanie!

    The last few episodes have brought to mind the people and loves I have lost. What would I give to be able to spend another day with them? Eric and Steffany, together alone, ending there story as it began is purfect. But let her have her martini!


  8. Mark Y says:

    Delightful. So well deserved. Best wishes, Susan!


  9. GreatFlannery says:

    Amazing tribute to one of the greatest actresses!!! Flannery gave the soul and heart to this show. I wish everything well to her new projects and to her life. I think her leaving means the end of B&B to me…Flannery is just as important as Eric Braeden to Y&R.

    Dear Susan,
    God bless you and best wishes on your retiring from BnB!! I have watched BnB everyday since the 1st show! You will be beyond greatly missed. BnB will not be the same without YOU! You always touch a deep part within me with your story line, especially right now. A dear friend is on hospice now for cancer. Watching you and Brooke is really helping me through this very difficult time in my life. I love you and will greatly miss you!!!! My daughter, now 14 watches with me every day! We love you! You are the kind of friend/person that everyone should have in their life!


  11. Christine says:

    The guys dancing in the wigs and pantsuits were worth the price of admission!

    What a wonderful sendoff for Susan and great morale behind the scenes.


  12. Red L Ranch says:

    That was certainly fun. Wishing Susan good things after her departure from B&B. I’m sure she’ll keep plenty busy at Venisetheseries.


  13. Mary Jo says:

    I have been watching B&B forever and Stephanie was the main reason!!She was always there for everyone,,whether they wanted it or not! Gonna miss you Stephanie!Good luck in whatever you do!!
