THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL star DARLENE CONLEY has died of stomach cancer at her Los Angeles home. She was 72. The veteran actress, who played flamboyant SALLY SPECTRA in the US soap from 1988, passed away on Sunday (14JAN07) after being diagnosed with cancer three months ago. The show's executive producer BRADLEY P BELL has paid tribute to her acting talents, saying, "She constantly entertained us with every move, every breath, every inflection of her voice. Whether she was the villain, the damsel, the sexpot or the comedienne, Darlene was brilliant." As well as The Bold And The Beautiful, Conley also appeared in Days Of Our Lives, General Hospital and THE YOUNG AND RESTLESS, as well as several stage plays. She is survived by her only son, RAYMOND WOODSON, and sisters CAROL FONTANA and SHARON WILSON.
