On-Air On-Soaps has named Robert S. Woods and Jerry verDorn’s performance on this past Thursday’s episode of One Life to Live this week’s Power Performance of the Week! As Buchanan brothers, Bo and Clint, Woods and VerDorn’s long awaited showdown did not disappoint, in fact, it exceeded our expectations!

Finally, Clint fesses up in his bitter vitriol that he did indeed set up Bo and Nora’s marriage to unravel and pulled the strings with Inez to get her to be part of his payback for Nora leaving him for brother Bo, and the humiliation he suffered because of it. VerDorn played it to perfection.

But it was Robert Woods, quiet, powerful, understated performance as betrayed brother Bo, that pulled at our heartstrings, when all the pieces come together for the police commissioner as he holds his older brother at gunpoint.  And, as the scene unraveled in yet another powerful moment, Bo tells Clint due to Clint’s part in his plot against them, he almost got Nora raped by Eddie Ford!

What made the scenes even more stellar for long time fans of the Buchanan family and One Life to Live were the references to Asa, and that Clint has now sunk lower than Asa ever did! The icing on the cake was at the end of the showdown when Bo picked up Asa’s hat and told Clint he doesn’t deserve to call himself a Buchanan.

Brilliant writing, brilliant performances, and the best part – we don’t have to live through Bo and Nora being duped any longer! Kudos to Robert S. Woods and Jerry verDorn for delivering to us classic soap opera! Check out the video clip below of Woods and VerDorn in this week’s Power Performance of the Week!

I agree, 100%. They were strong. Jerry, IMO, is at the top of his game. He is doing some of his best work since his front burning days on GL.

That was such an amazing performance. Loved every minute of it. Classic soap – brother vs brother betrayal. And the fact that it used seasoned veterans, pulling in show history.

I’d actually also pull in Jerry verDorn’s lead up conversation before that with Echo DeSavoy (Kim Zimmer) because the two of them knocked it out of the park as well. So hard to choose. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE “One Life to Live’s” use of veteran performances.

Robert and Jerry hit ever beat in the show down between Bo and Clint. Jerry played Clint with guilt over what Eddie almost did to Nora to pleasure that at this time nobody has true proof to what all Clint has doner. Robert played Bo with angry over what Clint had Inez do to Bo and Nora to more angry to what he’s doing to Matthew to rage with Clint being the one behind Nora’s kidnapping by Eddie and Nora’s almost rape by Eddie at thanks to Clint to Bo coming down from his angry and rage when Nora told… Read more »

I’m glad the show down has begun. I love Robert Woods acting. He underplays everything perfectly. Jerry and he play off each other so well. But, It’s only the beginng of things to come. We have a long way to go to unravel the deceit that Clint has perpetrated on his family What’s with denying Rex as his son? And telling Matthew that his father cheated on his mother, Nora? And having his assistant change the DNA report of Natalie and Jessica’s babies. So much mayhem, but it is not over. Yeah!…

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.
