As far as i have read some where Stephanie missing from the main plots from 2010 on was due to Susan Flannery illness and her wish to retire. But since Brad convinced her to stay till 2012 she was just a little part from the background
Twitter dragging Erika for sitting there like a lump while filming and only coming up with nasty comebacks 5 months later in her confessionals.
Aaron-speak translation: "It's just makeup. Let it go, let's move on." Even I got that.
Denise not bringing her kids was boss and would definitely rile up the very women who use their children to win mommy points with the audience.
Teddi thought there would be no repercussions from being a cowardly bitch under her breath? LMAO.
True, but still the "seniors" played an important role and the main plots revolved around Stephanie, Eric, Sally, etc. From 2010 onwards, especially since the Liam/Hope/Steffy triangle the show has been dominated by the youngsters. I remember in 2011 Stephanie had scenes like few times a month and she was only a background, commenting on the triangle. It was just cruel to watch. Now I watch B&B just out of the sentiment I guess, it's not as gripping as the classics.
