In 1989, Darlene Conley made her “The Bold and the Beautiful” debut as Sally Spectra, the head of House of Spectra, a fashion company that specialized in knock-offs. Sally was a flamboyant, fiery redhead who butted heads with Stephanie and the rest of the Forrester Creations gang over and over again, especially at their fashion show she did everything to upstage as many times as she could, per Soaps in Depth.
Conley remained with the soap until 2006, playing the many emotions of Sally as she tried to do best by her adult daughter, Macy Alexander (Bobbie Eakes), and her young son, CJ (Mick Cain). In 2007, Conley passed away, but Sally was already off the show. However, the soap opted not to kill the character and instead sent her to live her dreams and travel the world. While she has been mentioned here and there through the years, there has been no word on whether she is still living or not. In 2021, the website Soap Hub ran a poll of “B&B” fans and 60% of those who responded said they would like to have closure with the character and have her die off-screen so the soap could pay tribute to both Conley and Sally.
