On yesterday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, soap fans were in for a treat with the return of Crystal Chappell to network television in her new role as Danielle.  As has been reported, Danielle is the long-time partner of Karen Spencer played by Joanna Johnson.

In key scenes introducing the couples long-time relationship, Caroline (Linsey Godfrey) wants to bring her beau, Thomas (Adam Gregory) home to meet her parents.   And while Thomas is looking forward to meeting her dad, there is no dad for her to show him!  After some banter, illustrating that Karen is uncomfortable with her life being exposed, she is finally put in a situation where Caroline, who is proud to have been raised by two moms, tells Thomas that Dani and Karen are her parents.

Of course, there were some blistery moments when Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) stops by the ladies beach house and notices pictures of the duo on the mantel over the fireplace.   Bill made his ‘as-expected’ smarmy comments and left, which then justified Karen’s fears that her brother can never know she is gay and has a partner, Danielle.

Now after the jump, watch the scenes with Crystal Chappell and Joanna Johnson and more and let us know what you thought of the introduction of this storyline to B&B!

In case anyone does not understand want I meant we have two good actresses I am expecting at last a grown up story and poof once again steffy/Liam/Hope. They don’t have to be discussed by everyone in LA but no Thomas had to bring them up, However I don’t like cc haircut she is attractive don’t try to make her otherwise BB.

The ladies were splendid but I can’t help but feel Adam Gregory over did it with the facial expressions.

Also, I like that they cut Chappell’s hair. Smart move.

I watched this and was struck first and foremost by the horrible stereo type used. I should have expected it from BB. First… I am do not mean to offend anyone… but why take a very attractive Crstal and make her look like a Ridge/boy. Her hair is dark and short and not attractively done and she is dressed like a guy. Why on a a show where they have beautiful people, clothes and money do they have to meke her look like the D*** word. She could have been attractive and well dressed. Venice shows two attractive females together… Read more »

My only issue was that they made Thomas just a little too dense with all the clues smacking him right in the face. I love CC and am so glad she is back on daytime TV. I’m really looking forward to this story. She is why a returned to B&B after a 6 month break. I’ve had enough of Steffi, Liam and Hope. I’m still FF thru those scenes!

Glad that CC is on B&B, really looking forward how this story will play off. Heidi and Kay i agree with both of you about the look they gave her, i like her more when she is dressed lady like she is too pretty to be dressed like this, So dear people of B&B hear our cry and dress CC the way it should be beautiful as she is. Thank you Mr. Fairman.

Why does CC have to look like a glamorpuss in every single thing she does? Perhaps y’all are the typecasting ones.

The introduction of this story line IMO, went very well. With a few comments thrown into the dialogue, we were given a fair amount of back info about Dani & Karen’s relationship, why Karen is reluctant to divulge the truth to Bill & Co, and so on. I also liked the informal setting. Dinner, them pottering around the kitchen, a long time friend over for dinner, etc, etc,. There was a very realistic feel to it. So happy to see CC back on daytime. I personally didn’t mind the way Danielle was dressed, but I would like to see them… Read more »

I’m a Crystal fan and she’ll do a good job in this role, but I agree that her hair is distractingly bad. Come on, Bold! I also didn’t think she had much chemistry with her co-star but that’s always an issue when they come on already as a couple and don’t let the actors build it up. Also looks like those two will only be touching foreheads.

Public Relations Exec & Former CBS Watch Guru, Jeremy Murphy, New Book with Special Nod to ‘Santa Barbara’ Avail for Pre-Order

If you want an inside look into the colorful, often back-stabbing world of PR and entertainment, but with a very candid yet very humorous take, you are going to want to order and pick up your copy of Jeremy Murphy’s new book, F**k Off, Chloe, and as it turns out, the author himself includes a surprising tribute to the beloved Santa Barbara!

Murphy, who spent 14 years at CBS where he the creator and editor in chief of the high-profile magazine, CBS Watch, later launched a successful career with countless clients in his boutique PR agency, 360 bespoke.  The agency is known for clients in the fields of luxury, the arts, fashion/ beauty, hospitality, travel, media, start-ups and entrepreneurs.  In fact, former Days and RHOBH star, Lisa Rinna beauty brand, Rinna Beauty, has been one of his clients.

In the log lines for this new book, available for pre-order from Simon & Schuster, it details: ‘Public relations’ snarkiest publicist Jeremy Murphy expertly chronicles his hatred, love, indifference, amusement, and scorn for the profession in F*ck Off, Chloe. From entitled millennials to surly reporters, obnoxious clients, and cumbersome, color-coded “trackers,” Murphy takes a scalpel and glass of Châteauneuf-du-Pape to the PR industry in a searing, hilarious, and pissy voice that his own psychiatrist finds “deeply concerning.” His collection of annoyances shed light on the industry’s idiosyncrasies, insanities, contradictions, and past due invoices, providing an illuminating window into the dirty world of public relations not even Xanax can help. Complementing the scathing prose are color-in illustrations by artist Darren Greenblatt, creator of the “Ugly Lives of Beautiful People” sketch series.’

Murphy told Michael Fairman TV as to why soap fans may want to check out the book: “Any Santa Barbarian will love this because it finally says what needs to be said: best.show.ever.”  Jeremy is in indeed a hard core Santa Barbara fan.

On a personal note, Michael Fairman shared: “I used to work with Jeremy when he was an editor-in-chief and commissioned me to write profiles of celebrities, and it was always a fun journey to collaborate with him. This new book spoofs PR, journalism, TV and media, in an honest, unapologetic, but hysterical way.”

To pre-order, F**k Off, Chloe click here and look for its release in store and everywhere in March of 2022.
