Although they have different goals, Ryan convinces Erica to team up with him to destroy David.  Greenlee’s honest with David when she admits to still loving Ryan but says David is the man she trusts.  In turn, David is honest with Greenlee when he admits Erica’s threatening to send him to prison unless he helps her oust Greenlee from Fusion.  Greenlee tells David they’ll work together to take Erica down.  Angie tells Annie she’s a partial match for JR and is his best hope for survival.  Annie keeps the news to herself as she struggles to decide what to do.  JR regains consciousness just long enough to angrily order Annie out of his room as she stands over him, knowing she could be the only one who could save his life.  Brooke tries to comfort Adam.  Colby is bolstered by Damon’s words of encouragement.  Ryan brings Liza onboard to help him and Erica get the goods on David.  Erica, Liza and Ryan have their work cut out for them convincing a nervous Gayle to go through with their plan.  Gayle tells Ryan and Liza that David bribed a coroner to switch Greenlee’s DNA with someone else’s after the accident but Liza explains that without the man’s name, they still don’t have a case.  Angie stands up to David when he tries to blackmail her again.  The pain in Frankie’s hand grows worse and he pops a pill, which David witnesses.  Greenlee and Erica go toe-to-toe at Fusion with each woman refusing to back down.  Greenlee, however, realizes she went too far with one of her digs and suggests she and Erica need to find a way to work together.  Tad finds Damon sleeping on a gurney at the hospital because he had nowhere else to go.  Damon tells Tad he’s estranged from his father and doesn’t want to burden his mother.  Seeing a lot of himself in Damon, Tad offers to let him stay at his place for a while in exchange for doing some odd jobs around the house. Annie barely hides her jealousy when she witnesses the closeness between Brooke and Adam.  With her own selfish motives at the forefront, Annie finally tells Adam she’s a partial match for JR.  Dixie’s spirit appears at JR’s bedside.  Adam isn’t thrilled when Liza gives Marissa the papers finalizing her adoption of AJ.  Gayle answers her phone to David, who lays it on thick as he claims to still have feelings for her.  With her resolve weakened, Gayle tells David where she is.  David, however, only finds Ryan when he arrives at the turret room after getting the hotel’s location from Greenlee as Jake has already moved Gayle to his loft.  Amanda and Gayle find common ground over having been victimized by David.  Opal admits to Tad she might have misjudged Damon when she sees how good he is with Kathy and Jenny. Annie’s thrilled by Adam’s gratitude when she tells him she’s a partial donor match for JR and puts on a show of wanting to do whatever she can to save his life.  Knowing JR would never accept her being his donor, Annie leads the rest of the family to believe she’s going to a spa for a few days instead of telling them she’s checking into the hospital for the procedure.  Dixie appears before JR and takes him to her version of heaven, which turns out to be Pigeon Hollow.  Jake, Ryan, Gayle and Erica put their plan against David in motion, with help from Amanda and Natalia.  When David refuses to sign a formal confession and reveal the name of the coroner he bribed, Gayle threatens to shoot Erica.

JR spends time with Dixie and Stuart in heaven and would be content to stay there but Dixie urges him to reconsider and fight for his future.  As she’s about to leave for the hospital, Annie’s unsettled when she learns Adam invited Brooke to stay at the mansion.  Annie has a nightmare that Adam’s leaving her for Brooke as the procedure gets underway and bolts awake.  David falls into Ryan’s trap when it appears as though Gayle shot Erica.  Greenlee fakes injuring her back in order to give David the chance to make his getaway.  Greenlee rips into Ryan, who remains unrepentant.  Erica’s shaken to find David waiting for her when she returns home.  Liza’s concerned over Colby’s growing closeness with Damon.  Krystal reaches out to Tad.

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.

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.)
