Henry learns Vienna was never pregnant from Katie. He calls Vienna out for lying to him. Vienna tries to defend her behavior but Henry will have none of it. Vienna calls Katie and yells at her for revealing the truth. Henry bangs on Barbara’s door to no avail. He leaves her a message begging her to come back to him. Vienna swears to herself that she’ll find a way to get Henry back.  Katie feels lousy for misleading Henry. Chris comforts her.   Will can’t let go of his gut feeling that something’s wrong with Barbara. Jack promised to look into it. At the EOD, Gwen stumbles across Barbara’s abandoned passport.   Katie and Vienna both want to talk to Henry.  He opens his hotel room door and asks to speak with Vienna alone.  He’s furious with her and her lie and wants an annulment, or if it comes to it, a divorce.  Vienna is angry, says fine, marry Barbara – if he can find her.  Henry is also furious with Katie, who tries to talk to him downstairs.  Henry tries to go see Barbara, but she’s not in her room.  Katie tells him that Barbara knew about Vienna’s secret.  Henry presumes she might have been kidnapped so as not to stop the wedding.  He sees Vienna while she’s ready for a massage, threatens her and asks where Barbara is.  Barbara has a Henry VIII fantasy in the warehouse.  Paul and Emily, and Gwen and Will, are in the fantasy too, all explaining why Barbara deserves punishment.  But she defends herself.  She rouses from the fantasy, puts down the clown, and sets her mind to escaping.  Will goes to Margo about Barbara.  Margo has heard that Barbara hasn’t left the country and she’ll now be considered a missing person.  Will and Emily argue about Barbara.  Gwen and Will then go to the Lakeview, where they find a maid has found Barbara’s phone.  Paul just wishes Barbara would call, while Emily wouldn’t mind if she didn’t.

Lily graciously tells Holden she’ll help with the kids for Holden and Molly’s wedding. She admits to Craig, that pretending to be happy for Holden is slowly killing her. He suggests she and Carly go to New York to sign the contract for the perfume factory. Carly’s game and Lily’s excited. Craig encourages Lily to continue pretending Craig’s not involved with the perfume company. He’d like to prove to himself and the world that he can become a better person.  Dusty’s glum that Craig’s keeping Johnny at an arm’s length. Luckily, Janet runs into Johnny’s babysitter and convinces her to let Janet care for Johnny for the day. Dusty’s thrilled to have lunch with Johnny. They all go to a movie and Dusty and Janet can’t deny the current between them. At the EOD, Dusty asks Janet to dine with him at Metro that night.  Anthony Blackthorn shows up and knows Jan, from his life as Tony Nero.  Dusty is rubbed the wrong way by this guy and invokes Ralph, which upsets Janet.   Jack and Carly go to Metro for a date and see Dusty and Janet there.  Janet’s receptive to Dusty’s flirting. Dusty still doesn’t like Blackthorns presence in Janet’s life, but she insists their relationship is innocent. Dusty tells Lucinda that Blackthorn’s been acting like he’s involved with Worldwide. Lucinda berates Blackthorn for not keeping his eye on the prize – ruining Craig. Dusty asks his executive assistant to investigate Blackthorn.   Carly finally hears that Janet and Liberty will be living in the cabin at the Snyder Farm and is upset at Jack for not telling her.  Jack absolutely cares for Carly, and kisses her, and would make love to her but Carly stops him, displeased with how things are right now.  Craig and Lily are in New York because of a baggage handlers’ strike.  The power in the motel goes out and with it the AC.  So Craig and Lily must improvise things to do, eat and how to stay cool.  Lily rubs some ice on herself and then Craig gets her back, asking aloud why they never got together.  Parker mopes around the farm watching Liberty and Faith work with Gabriel. Jack goes to Carly to see what they can do about Parker finding a summer job. Parker gets a commercial offered to him, and Carly agrees to stay in town so he can do it. Lily’s freaked out that Carly won’t be joining her in New York to sign the contract for the perfume factory. So she asks Craig to come along. Craig obliges her and they sign the contract with Francoise. Due to a baggage strike, all flights are grounded in New York and Lily and Craig must share a hotel room. Meanwhile, Jack and Carly bond over the success of their son. At the EOD, Jack asks Carly to dinner at Metro too.  Faith follows Parker to the commercial shoot and they flirt. Much to Gabriel’s disappointment, Liberty’s also compelled to go to the shoot, but leaves quickly when she sees Parker and Faith flirting.  Lily and Craig wake up in NY and Francoise catches them in semi-undress. They insist it’s not what it looks like – they just sleep in few clothes because the power and therefore air-conditioning was out. Francoise sends an incriminating photo to Lucinda.  Lucinda’s furious, and places a one-way phone call asking someone to return home.  Lucinda also let’s Holden know that Lily’s stuck in NY. When Holden calls to check in with her, Craig answers the phone. Holden’s suspicious but both Lily and Craig maintain they simply ran into each other in NY. Molly’s perturbed that Holden’s still affected by Lily’s love life. Holden claims he’s just concerned about his children. Bob turns down Mona Cross’ and Invicta’s offer to buy the hospital when she’s put off by Reid and Luke even though they aren’t and weren’t in a relationship when the money was donated.  He asks Reid to consider replacing him after working on his people skills.  Bob tells Kim he’s eyeing Reid for the job and she gets very upset at his choice.

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.

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Jesse Metcalfe Eliminated, Chrishell Stause Gets A Surprise From NKOTB

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.)
