Schuyler knocks the wind out of Gigi when he announces he’s the father of Stacy’s baby as Sierra Rose is prepped for life-saving heart surgery.  Gigi is further stunned when Schuyler admits he’s known the truth for several months and never told her.  Rex has the difficult task of explaining the truth about the baby to Shane and later begins to open up to Bo about how he really feels.  Shane wonders if Rex and Gigi will get back together.  Kyle is dismayed over Fish’s reluctance to find out whether or not he’s Sierra Rose’s father because he believes the baby should be raised by a “normal couple” and not a gay man and his partner.  Jessica doesn’t recognize Natalie as being her sister but does pretend to know Bree so as not to traumatize the little girl.  Greg and Rachel reunite and make love.  Rachel and Greg are at odds over Schuyler’s possible involvement in stealing oxytocin from the hospital but agree to put the matter to rest.  With curiosity getting the best of her, Rachel looks through Schuyler’s backpack and finds the vial of oxytocin.

Schuyler’s under the delusion that nothing has to change between him and Gigi but she soon disabuses him of this notion after unleashing her anger.  Roxy encourages Rex to go to Gigi.  After learning that Tea has moved out, Blair resists Todd’s advances because she doesn’t want to fall back into old habits.  Fearing for Schuyler after finding the empty vial of oxytocin in his backpack, Rachel turns to Tea for legal advice.  Tea admits to Rachel that Schuyler could be in serious trouble if he induced Stacy’s early labor and something happens to the baby.  Clint rips into Kim when he hears her verbally abusing Nigel but softens when she tells him that Stacy drowned to death.  Matthew and Danielle’s make out session starts to build to something more but Matthew makes her see that her reasons for wanting to have sex aren’t the right ones.

Snoop Dogg gets caught up with his old friend Bo and invites him, Nora and Matthew to his concert. Jack and Danielle get off to a rocky start.  Danielle sees red when Todd instinctively forbids her to go to Snoop’s concert with Matthew.  Nora’s concerned about Matthew getting involved with Todd’s daughter but Bo tries to ease her worries.  Todd and Tea chaperone Danielle and Matthew’s outing at Capricorn.  Without mentioning Langston by name, Ford remains evasive when Cristian questions him about the girl he keeps thinking about.  Langston can’t get Ford off her mind and offers to babysit Hope to avoid going to Capricorn to see Snoop with Markko.  After learning Langston is home alone, Ford shows up at the apartment.  Greg’s parents snub Rachel but clearly adore Shaun’s date Vivian.  Snoop performs at Capricorn.

Brody desperately wants Jessica to remember him and shows her a DVD and photos of the happy times they shared but his efforts are in vain.  Jessica agrees to kiss Brody but even that doesn’t trigger her memory of him.  Gigi is grateful for Rex’s support as they wait for word on Sierra Rose.  Rachel believes Schuyler when he swears he didn’t use the oxytocin on Stacy.  Gigi finds Schuyler praying in the chapel and puts aside her emotions to let him know Sierra Rose is out of surgery.  Markko narrowly avoids catching Langston about to make love with Ford when he returns home unexpectedly.  Starr fights feelings of jealousy when she meets Hannah, Cole’s very attractive classmate.  John and Marty patch things up.  Natalie’s affected when she sees John kissing Marty.  Jessica calls Cristian and asks him to come see her.  Cristian would give Jessica a friendly kiss on the cheek but she pulls him into a far more passionate one.  Starr suspects Langston is hiding something but she denies it.  Langston confronts Ford after figuring out he came over the night before because he knew she was alone.  Ford plants a steamy kiss on Langston.  Blair cautions Dorian that her confidence that Mitch is no longer a threat may be premature.  Kelly and Adriana arrive at La Boulaie for Dorian’s gathering of the Cramer women.  Andrew arrives at Dorian’s saying he has bad news.  Roxy’s unsettled after visiting Mitch in prison.  Mitch gets a visit from one of his disciples.

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.)
