Original cast member Susan Flannery (Stephanie) reportedly asked to be written out of B&B after 25 years, but the show managed to work out a new deal with the daytime legend. "Susan, for quite some time, was thinking she needed a break or just have some personal time," Executive Producer/Head Writer Bradley P. Bell tells Digest exclusively. "She's been through a lot personally; we know that she had her own battle with cancer and she’s had such an amazing career that she will continue to have as Stephanie Forrester, but I think it's not so much as a disagreement between her and the show, but more Susan figuring out where she is right now and what she needs. Now, Susan is going to have an incredible time with a new storyline that we've never seen before; something completely unique and interesting." For more on this story, check out the new issue of Digest, on sale Friday.

Ok, I'm confused. Is she leaving or not? I found  this snippet on SoapCentral:

"Meanwhile, TVLine announced today that Flannery is "parting ways with The Bold and the Beautiful after 25 years — and most amicably, at that."
