Jeff Franklin and Bob Boyett talked with TVLine.com about their decision on Stephanie not being able to have children. In episode 5 Stephanie reveals to DJ that she’s not able to have kids. It was such a heartbreaking scene. Jodie and Candace nailed that scene.
“First of all, I didn’t want Stephanie to have children,” Franklin tells us. “I wanted one of the three to not have kids. The backstory I created for her was that she’s a free spirit, traveling the world. She’s into her career and into having fun, and I thought this would be a really interesting aspect to that character — and touching. I love the way that scene played between the two girls. I thought they knocked it out of the park.”
As for whether or not we can expect Stephanie to pursue her own family through other avenues, Boyett tells us, “That may be something that’s referenced again in the series.” (Cryptic, but we’ll take it!)
