The Bold and the Beautiful kicked off its two-week celebration of Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery) with Stephanie and Eric (John McCook) awaiting test results at the doctor's office. When the doctor finally showed, she revealed Stephanie's cancer had metastasized to her liver and bones.
Eric seemed to be having a harder time handling Stephanie’s diagnosis than Stephanie herself. He became very upset when Stephanie told him she didn’t want to have chemo and radiation treatments when it wouldn’t cure her. Eric pointed out that it worked for her last time. Stephanie replied that the circumstances are now different. She won’t win this fight. The doctor gave Stephanie and Eric some more time, but before she exited, she told Stephanie to let her know when she had made her final decision. After the doctor left, Stephanie and Eric had a tearjerker of a conversation during which Stephanie said her mind was made up. READ MORE

"I just signed a new contract with the show, for another three years," McCook reports. "I'm very glad about that, because a lot of actors my age are taken off contract and become recurring."
TV Guide recently revealed Jacob Young is reprising his role as Eric and Brooke’s (Katherine Kelly Lang) son Rick Forrester.
Race and racism are issues we still don’t talk about openly. It makes people uncomfortable, so we end up ignoring or talking around it. The controversy last year over whether or not racist language should be redacted from Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn perfectly illustrated this. Rather than dealing with our complicated, racist past, some people decided to erase references to that past. But erasing will not change the fact that it happened, nor will it solve anything in the present.
On The Bold and the Beautiful, race rarely came into play until Eric's (John McCook) wife Donna (Jennifer Gareis) was reunited with the child she had given up for adoption as a teenager. It turned out her son Marcus (Texas Battle) was the product of a biracial union and he simply looked black. When he first appeared, Donna was conflicted about telling Eric and worried that it might end their marriage…only her reaction had nothing to do with race. Or so the show would have us believe.
