Adam comes upon a zombie-like Annie holding the tire iron and instinctively backs away, uncertain what to think.  Scott’s arrival snaps Annie out of her trance.  Scott later confronts Colby, who finally admits she’s responsible for the stunt but remains unremorseful.  Adam reads Scott, Colby and Annie the riot act after hearing Colby admit her guilt while accusing Scott of still having a thing for Annie.  Liza’s disheartened when Damon tells her that Bailey is staying at her parent’s house with Stuart permanently.  Natalia arrests Damon in connection to the recent string of burglaries.  Jesse convinces Angie they need some time alone and whisks her away to a room at the Yacht Club where they reconnect and make love.   Not wanting to ruin his parent’s time together, Frankie fails to give Angie an urgent message which results in the death of a patient.  Ryan eavesdrops as Greenlee pours her heart out to Jake and is deeply affected by what he hears.  After telling her he’s going to back off, Ryan and Greenlee begin to enjoy being together without feeling any pressure.  Greenlee’s touched when Ryan remembers her birthday and presents her with a cupcake.  Adam tells Tad to speed up the search for Sonia Reyes.  Afraid he won’t be around for Little A’s upcoming sixth birthday, JR suggests they celebrate early.  Little A thinks he needs a more grown up name now and everyone decides to start calling him AJ.  JR asks Tad to always play a role in AJ’s life the same way he did for him when he was growing up.  Tad catches JR when he collapses.  Tad tells Adam he tracked down Sonia Reyes’ son, Miguel, who’s agreed to have his DNA sent from California to be tested.  Angie realizes that Frankie deliberately didn’t give her the message about the patient who could have been saved because he didn’t want to interrupt her time alone with Jesse.  Frankie insists on taking full responsibility for the incident but Angie puts her foot down, saying she’ll handle it her way.  Frustrated, Frankie slams his fist into a wall, reinjuring his hand.  Annie suggests that Adam name her the new Editor-in-Chief at Tempo and he agrees to think about it.  Annie’s surprised when Brooke arrives at the mansion.  Erica’s confident she has David right where she wants him when she orchestrates it so that he dismisses Gayle as meaning nothing to him while a hidden Gayle listens.  Gayle wants to make David pay for what he’s done and Erica promises they’ll do just that.  Erica lays it out for David, telling him she wants him to marry Greenlee, get her out of town and away from Fusion or else.

Feeling threatened, Annie lies and tells Brooke that the Editor-in-Chief position at Tempo has already been filled, by none other than Annie herself.  After reuniting with Scott and Colby, Brooke heads off to the hospital with them when they get word about JR, leaving Annie out of the loop once again.  JR’s in bad shape but does his best to rally.  Tad and Adam are thrilled to see Brooke.  Tad later announces they found a match for JR.  Ryan lets Greenlee go but remains confident they’ll get back together one day.  Erica seethes when she reads Greenlee’s memo ousting her from Fusion effective immediately.  Erica digs in her heels and tells Jack she has no intention of walking away from the company and handing it back to Greenlee.  Greenlee explains to David why it’s so important to her that they get married.  David and Greenlee’s wedding gets underway.

Damon apologizes to Liza for committing the burglaries and lying to her.  Liza promises to stand by Damon at his trial for Stuart’s sake.  JR’s family celebrates the fact a donor has been found.  Adam explains that he had a one night stand many years ago that resulted in the woman having a son but she didn’t tell him and when he finally did learn what happened, the woman didn’t want Adam to have any contact with the boy.  Adam anticipates the arrival of Miguel, his son and JR’s half-brother.  Erica clashes with Greenlee when she interrupts her and David’s wedding.  Greenlee warns Erica she’ll never get her hands on Fusion.  Jack is unsuccessful in getting Greenlee to call off the wedding.  Erica reminds David of their deal.  David and Greenlee are pronounced husband and wife.  Gayle slips away from Erica.  Adam’s inclined to name Brooke Editor-in-Chief at Tempo and considers having Annie work with her.                

Greenlee suspects something is going on between David and Erica.  David admits to Greenlee that he teamed up with Erica to try and take Fusion from her.  David insists to Greenlee they they’ll work together to double-cross Erica, which she overhears.  Erica is anxious to find Gayle.  Jake and Ryan think they can use Gayle to destroy David and track her down as she’s about to leave town.  Ryan shows up at Erica’s door when Gayle reveals Erica’s the one who brought her to town in the first place.  Jake has Gayle hidden away in the turret room and is surprised when Greenlee shows up.  Everyone’s vastly disappointed when Miguel fails to show up in Pine Valley.  JR’s condition takes a turn for the worse.  Annie’s jealous of the easy rapport between Brooke and Adam.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Thomas Gets Creepy As The Hope Mannequin Talks To Him

Leave it to the good folks over at The Bold and the Beautiful to incorporate a play on their headline-grabbing mannequin use during Covid-19.  B&B was the first American television show back in production during the pandemic, and its executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, told the media how they were using mannequins in several scenes in place of real actors when it comes to some intimate moments between characters.  Since the time, the show has also brought in real-life partners of their cast members when needed for a make-out scene, etc.

And that brings us to Thursday’s shocking reveal on the CBS daytime drama series, when Thomas (Matthew Atkinson), who seemed to be a more centered-version of himself of late, takes home with him the Hope for the Future shipment and opens the box.  He is for a surprise when inside the box is a lifelike mannequin of Hope  (Annika Noelle).  And from there, things spiral out of control, as viewers learned Thomas’ obsession with Hope is alive and well.

Thomas just can’t believe how life-like the mannequin of Hope is – saying to himself, “No wonder they use it for the Hope for the Future line.”  But then  after he takes the mannequin out of the box, it starts talking to him … in Hope’s voice, begging him to allow her to stay there with him and not put her back in the boX saying, .Please don’t lock me up in that box again.   I’ve been away from you too long… I know you want to be with me too.”  Then, Thomas who is having a very hard time between reality and this apparent hallucination shouts: “You’re not real!” What’s wrong with me?”

 

Perhaps Liam said it best earlier in the episode when Hope was speaking about Thomas to him, when he uttered.“I get creeped out just thinking about Thomas.”

Watch some of the Hope-mannequin action with Thomas below. Then weigh-in, what do you think of this plot twist? Share your thoughts in the comment section,

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Chrishell Stause Shares & Performs Emotional Tribute To Her Late Parents

It has been a challenging few years for former soap and current Selling Sunset star, Chrishell Stause, who is currently still in the running for the Mirror Ball Trophy following Monday night’s competition on Dancing with the Stars.

Last night, Chrishell shared in the pre-dance package that she was performing a contemporary routine with her pro partner, Gleb Savchenko, in honor of both of her parents who died from lung cancer in July of 2020 and April 2019.

Stause expressed: “They were really loving people. Some of my best memories are with my mom, dancing with her in the living room.  No one would be more excited about me being here and doing the show than her.” (referring to her mom who passed away this summer).  She continued on to say: “Right before I dance, I really feel her calm me, encourage me. That has been the most special thing I will take away from this show.  I know that my parents are with me. My mom’s name was Renee Stause, and my dad’s name was Jeff Stause. And this dance is for them.”

 

Dancing to “Stars” by Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Chrishell and Gleb delivered the most emotional performance of the night.  And the judges took notice, as Carrie Ann Inaba said to Stause: “You poured your heart and soul into that dance.   Bruno added: “That was so emotionally engaging, so raw, so truthful, irresistible because you gave everything you have.”  While the three judges including Derek Hough also gave a rougher technical critique of her to improve upon next week, Chrishell and Gleb still scored all eights and 24 out of 30 overall.

At the end of the night, during the reveal of who was safe and who was in the bottom two, host Tyra Banks revealed that Chrishell and Gleb were safe.

Then, after combining the scores and fans’ votes, in the bottom two were Johnny Weir and Vernon Davis.  In a close decision, Derek chose to save Johnny, and Carrie Ann chose Vernon. So, it was up to Bruno to cast the deciding vote and he saved Johnny, sending Davis, the former NFL Pro football star, home.

Watch Chrishell’s emotional dance below.   Then let us know if you are rooting for Chrishell and what you thought of the very personal story she shared last night via the comment section below.

Last night on  ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, another soap opera alumni’s journey on the ballroom dance floor came to an end, when Jesse Metcalfe’s (Passions, Desperate Houswives and Dallas) ) and his pro partner, Sharna Burgess, were sent home by the judges after landing in the bottom two.

After combining the judges scores and fan voting at home, the other couple joining Jesse and Sharna in the bottom two were  Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd.  This season it is up to the judges to choose who stays and who goes when forced with picking between the two lowest scoring couples of the night.. Bruno chose Vernon, Carrie Ann followed and Derek also revealed he would have saved Davis or Metcalfe as well.

With Metcalfe eliminated following last’s week’s departure of Ex-Another World’s Anne Heche, that leaves only Chrishell Stause still in the running vying for the Mirror Ball Trophy from the world of daytime drama.

 

Here’s a recap of what went down on the dance floor for Metcalfe, Stause and Davis last night.

Jesse Metcalfe and Sharna Burgess – (Tango) – “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”

Dancing to the classic by Tears for Fears, Metcalfe promised in the pre-package to loosen up and show a more human and vulnerable side to his dancing.  However, although there was a bit more coming from Jesse this outing, the judges criticized him for needing more technique than just performance. SCORE 19 out of 30

Chrishell Stause and Gleb Savchenko (Cha-Cha)  – “The Right Stuff”

Revealing to all on the pre-package, Chrishell is a huge New Kids on the Block fan from back in her teens, and was stoked to dance to their song during the night’s 80’s competition,   However, during the performance, while Stause has shown improvement, this time the judges noted she seemed to slow down to much during the dance and also she needs to watch her footwork.  After Gleb and Chrishell danced, Tyra Banks had a surprise for Chrishell when the NKOTB sent in a viral video message to their biggest fan!  Stause was overjoyed.  SCORE 19 out of 30

Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd –  (Tango) – “Living’ on a Prayer”

Performing to Bon Jovi’s classic “Living on a Prayer”, Davis donned some rocker dude long locks and hit the floor with Murgatroyd, but the former pro football star looked stiff moving around the ballroom.  Judge Bruno noted that his footwork was a bit flat.  However, Carrie Ann shared she liked the quality of movement he was showing them.  SCORE 21 out of 30

So after looking at the clips of their performances below, did the right person get sent home in Metcalfe vs. Davis?  Do you think Chrishell can hold out longer on the series through the next rounds of competition?  Let us know in the comments section. (Also check out the moment when NKOTB message to Stause is played during the broadcast.)
