'The Bold and the Beautiful' to Celebrate the Life of Darlene Conley
'The Bold and the Beautiful' to Celebrate the Life of Darlene Conley
It has been 10 months since the passing of one of The Bold and the Beautiful's most colorful regulars, Darlene Conley, who played the feisty Sally Spectra.  In celebration of her remarkable life, the soap is staging a fashion event, in collaboration with Beau Rivage Resort & Casino.

Darlene Conley had essayed the role of Sally Spectra, proverbial thorn on the butts of the Forresters on The Bold and the Beautiful for nearly two decades, until she finally succumbed to stomach cancer on January 14 of this year.  Two days shy of her first death anniversary, her friends and co-stars from The Bold and the Beautiful will lead a fashion extravaganza in memory of her.

On January 12, 2008, Bold and the Beautiful stars like John McCook (Eric Forrester), Winsor Harmon (Thorne Forrester) and Dan McVicar (Clarke Garrison) will head guests and attendees to a fashion show and auction celebrating the life of their late friend and co-star, Darlene Conley.  The event will take place at the posh AAA Four Diamond Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Conley was one of The Bold and the Beautiful's longest-serving cast members, who gave life to the spitfire Sally Spectra.  As Sally, Conley often employed various forms of underhanded tactics in order to gain some leverage against the Forresters, against whom her Spectra Fashions competed fiercely for many years.  Among her most notorious schemes involved donning outlandish and outrageous disguises such as Mae West, a German undercover operative and a nun among others.  Pieces from the wardrobe of Conley's Sally Spectra will take center stage during the fashion tribute, and will also be auctioned off to benefit the Center for Prevention of Child Abuse (CPCA).

The affair, which is sponsored by Beau Rivage Resort & Casino, will include cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.  Tickets are available at the following prices: $300 Platinum inclusive of front row seats, complimentary champagne, a private meet & greet with The Bold and the Beautiful stars and a preview of the silent auction (limited number of tickets available), $150 second row (limited number of tickets available), and $75 for general seating.  Tickets are available through the CPCA.
