THE BACHELORETTE: A Tale Of Two Ambulances, Awkward Spa Date & Songwriting Your Feelings

Courtesy/ABC

On week 3 of The Bachelorette, plenty of broken bones were the order of the episode, and some pretty uncomfortable moments for the contestants, and the audience watching at home.

In this installment, we start with a group date where Becca has invited several of the fellas to join her. Becca has a spa day in mind … and so what’s a girl to do?  Have some of your infamous ‘Bachelor ‘contestants you competed against for Arie’s heart hanging out with you.  One of which is Tia.  Yup, Tia!  The girl that apparently dated this season’s ‘Bachelorette’ contestant, Colton, who is causing so much ‘inner-conflict” for Becca, because of this bit of intel.

So now, the stage was set! Colton, who is taking part on the group date sees Tia, in the most uncomfortable and forced, awkward situation of the episode.  Colton hugs it out with Tia.  Then, Tia and Becca sit down to discuss Tia’s relationship with Colton.  Both Tia and Becca believe it is quite possible Colton signed on to be a contestant on this season, hoping Tia would be The Bachelorette. Tia assures Becca, that the relationship did not get serious and it was long-distance.

Side note: the most embarrassing moment of the season lands on Becca, when she can’t remember the name of one of the guys she chose for this group date.  It’s Jason, Becca! Jason!

Later, within a quick blip, looks like Becca’s fears have melted away when she and Colton talk it out at the cocktail party that night.  In fact, she gives him the group date rose.  But also at ‘said’ cocktail party: David is getting more annoyed with Jordan.  It comes to a boiling point when male model Jordan brags he has almost 4,000 Tinder matches! David goes straight to Becca to tell her that this dude is not on the up and up and not here for the right reasons.  She uses the information, and turns it on Jordan with a high-five for reaching the Tinder 4K mark! Jordan calls David, “A bitch”.

Next, the producers have been teasing all through the episode that it is Jordan who causes bodily harm to David .. but guess what?  Not the case. Damnit!  Ambulances and the paramedics are called to the  contestants house, where David is wheeled out with blood all over the floor and clothes in his room. Chris Harrison comes to tell Becca what happened.  It turns out David fell out of his bunk bed and crashed to the floor face first.  Becca feels bad, and calls David.  He says he will be back soon after getting fixed up in the hospital.

The week’s one-on-one date went to Chris, who goes to the Capitol Records building with Becca, and land in a studio where, none other than  Richard Marx is supposedly recording.  Marx has a songwriting challenge for both Becca and Chris – to write down some song lyrics based on how they feel about each other.  How is that possible when they have barely spent any time together? Chris begins to clam up and struggle with the assignment.  It looks like he cannot put a thought to pen and paper.  Viewers learn Chris was abandoned by his father at a young age, and that Chris tried to reconnect with his dad a few years ago by writing him a letter, in which the father never replied, or reached back to him.  Chris feels if he shares his feelings he will get hurt. Somehow, just somehow, when you think he had nothing written to share to Becca and Richard, he comes up with solid romantic lyrics. Whoa, it was touch and go there!

Later, the two have an intimate dinner where Chris opened up about his past with his dad to Becca.  She feels sad about his past, and gives him a rose.  Marx, shows up out of nowhere in another large room serenading the couple as they dance and makeout to “Right Here Waiting.”

On the second group date, ten of the men take to a football field for some drills and a scrimmage in front of a bunch of  “extras’ err, “audience’.  Clay, an NFL player, was the standout in “The Becca Bowl.”  In fact, Becca was very turned on by his athletic prowess juxtaposed against his mild demeanor.  Just then, bad news struck.  Clay hurt his wrist in a play in the end zone.  He is then also taken out by ambulance! At the afterparty, while Blake fumes that he is getting jealous of not spending any one on one time with Becca, Clay re-emerges with his arm in a sling.  Becca is thrilled to see him and awards him the group date rose, rattling the other guys.

The next day, just before the rose ceremony, Clay admits he needs surgery to repair his wrist in time for football season.  He says he is having an internal struggle of what to do because of his family and his career, but totally digging Becca.  Ultimately, he decides to leave the show, return the group rose, and tell Becca the truth.  She is left in tears as Clay drives off in the limo.

In one of the big teasers for next week’s episode, David returns following smashing his face, and the producers blurred out his face in the preview making it seem like some disfigurement is on the way.  But is it really?

So, what did you think about the shenanigans on this week’s episode of The Bachelorette? Who do you think is the frontrunner for Becca’s heart now? Who do you think will be sent home at next week’s rose ceremony? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: What Did You Think of the Reveal of Who Killed Charlie?

“Sorry Charlie!” Those were the clever words said by the killer of the evil Charlie Dale (Mike Manning) on Days of our Lives.  But evil kinda knows evil, and thus viewers learned in a reveal just who was the culprit.

DAYS fans begin to get to the truth when on Monday’s episode, while under hypnosis from Marlena (Deidre Hall), John (Drake Hogestyn) recalls opening the door to the apartment in time to see someone in a red coat with a hood (very ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ but with a fashion flare) shoot Charlie.

When “Doc” brings John out of his hypnotic state, she asks him who fired the gun?  John is horrified as he reveals it was their daughter, Belle! (Martha Madison). John shares that Belle was wearing the coat they gave her for Valentine’s Day.  A shocked John utters, “My God, Doc. Our little girl blew that punk away.”  However, Marlena refuses and does not believe Belle would shoot and kill Charlie, let alone anyone.

Jan (Heather Lindell) shows up at Marlena’s office and tells John and Marlena she is not going to be locked up, because of the deal she made for her freedom. Then, we see Jan get more inquisitive into what John and Marlena were discussing before she walked in on them.  They leave to go talk to Belle to get answers, while Jan sneaks back into the office and into Marlena’s drawer to retrieve the recording device to find out exactly what John and Marlena were talking about.

It is there when Jan is alone that viewers learn what happened the night of Charlie’s death. Jan is listening to the recording of John telling Marlena that Belle shot Charlie, but that he didn’t see Belle’s face because she was wearing the red coat.

Next, Jan flashes back to Charlie saying, “Don’t shoot,” and then firing a gunshot as Charlie falls to the ground.  We see the visual of the face of the person in the red coat and it’s Jan!  Next, Jan smirks and says, “Sorry, Charlie.”

So it seems Jan Spears has an ultimate revenge plot to rid Belle once and for all and have her locked behind bars.  How long will it be before the other Salemites catch on that Jan is the murderer?

So, were you happy to see it was Jan who was the one who killed Charlie? Did you suspect it was her? Share your thoughts in the comment section.  But first, watch the moment the killer is revealed below.

‘The Talk’ Returns as Sheryl Underwood Shares the ‘Trauma’ She Feels Over Incident That Led to Sharon Osbourne’s Exit

CBS’ afternoon series The Talk finally returned to the air, following the departure of Sharon Osbourne and the tense moments that went down on the March 10th episode between her and Sheryl Underwood.

Monday afternoon, co-hosts: Sheryl Underwood, Elaine Welteroth, Amanda Kloots and Carrie Ann Inaba along with diversity and inclusion expert, Donald E. Grant, were on the episode.  Grant, served as the moderator as the women discussed what happened when Osbourne came at Underwood when defending Piers Morgan’s remarks about Meghan Markle, eventually prompting an extended internal investigation by CBS.

On today’s episode, Sheryl Underwood shared: “I didn’t want to escalate things with Sharon, because I thought I was having a conversation with a friend, but also, I knew I had to be an example for others to follow. I didn’t want to be perceived as that ‘angry Black woman’, and that really scared me. I didn’t want to be that and I wanted to remain calm and focused. It’s difficult to go back to that day because I just feel the trauma. I feel fearful, a little apprehensive.”

Elaine Welteroth added, “When you go back and watch what happened in that episode, you will see two Black women walking the same tightrope that Black women are walking every single day in the workplace.  As Sheryl said, we knew we had to stay composed in that situation, even in the face of someone who was A, not listening, and B, who went off the rails into disrespect when we were maintaining our respect within the context of this very complex, charged, emotional conversation.  There have been a lot of false narratives that have been spun in the aftermath of what happened on that episode…this is the first time that I have had the opportunity to speak. And I think it’s really important that we have the opportunity to say that the false accusations that are swirling in the press that frame Sheryl and I as some kind of, you know, people who attacked a woman on air, and were part of some sort of, you know, conspiracy, that is absolutely, categorically false.”

She later added, “I just want to acknowledge you, Sheryl, on air for how you handled the situation. I think it’s important for people to really know the strength and willpower it takes to maintain that kind of composure in that situation. And I think for me, I was just really entering that conversation with the hope of finding a common ground and I didn’t feel like I was heard.”

In addition, Underwood wanted to go on record stating that while she had received text messages from Osbourne, she hadn’t replied to them because she wasn’t sure she was supposed to during during an internal investigation. Osbourne had said that she sent texts to Underwood and had apologized for her actions.

Sheryl shared: “I have never been through something like this. I didn’t know whether you were supposed to communicate or not communicate.  I have not spoken to Sharon, I haven’t had a phone call from her, ” However, Underwood expressed that if a friend were to come up to her and greet her nicely, she would do that same, “When you’re friends with someone, you stay friends,” she said.

So, what did you think about the sentiments shared by Sheryl and Elaine during The Talk? Was this episode helpful in shining a lot on racism, and successful in dealing with what transpired on March 10th with Sharon Osbourne? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Don Diamont & Scott Clifton Shine In Father/Son Scenes; As Bill Watches Liam’s Meltdown Over the Accident that Killed Vinny

On Thursday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, emotional two-person scenes were the order of the day featuring three-time Daytime Emmy winner, Scott Clifton (who may nab a nominations next year for this story) and longtime soap vet, Don Diamont.

In story, Dollar Bill has done everything to protect his son by covering up all the evidence in his attempt to save Liam from surely a murder sentence and going to prison.

Bill’s theory: if anyone were to find out that Liam was driving Bill’s car when suddenly out of nowhere came Vinny (Joe LoCicero) – who Liam hates – and he hit him with the car and fatally killed the guy, they would think he had intent and motive. (However, to us there has to be more to the story! Did Vinny just randomly happen to be on the road that Liam and Bill were driving on and walking across it?)

At Bill’s place, Liam is agonizing as he keeps flashing back to the accident.  When Bill comes in from a morning jog, Liam is astonished that his father was out jogging, when they are in deep hot water for covering up their now hit and run.  Bill gets angry and tells him he actually went to see if there are were any cameras near the accident and he is happy to report there were none, so Liam is in the clear.  Therefore, Liam needs to keep his mouth shut and let this go and move on with his life and reuniting with Hope (Annika Noelle).

Not able to live with the cover-up, the lies, and what he did, Liam is insisting he has to go to the police, but Bill shouts: “You are not going to the police!” Liam goes on to his own subplot theory that they can say he hit an animal and then turn themselves in. Bill keeps firing back at his son, that he cannot do anything of the sort. He has done everything to protect his son in this mess and Liam could screw that all up with one wrong move.  Bill says, “All you have to do is…” and Liam fires back, “Pretend it never happened.”

It is then that Bill tells Liam that killing Vinny will haunt him whether he’s behind bars or a free man, and that he should opt for the latter.  Now unraveling, Liam’s convinced the police will figure out their cover-up. Just then, Bill pulls out a news report on his phone about the hit-and-run that has no leads and no ID of the body.  He assures his son there will never be any leads because he took care of everything.

Just then, Hope texts Liam wondering where he is for their lunch date.  Bill tells Liam to text her back saying something came up, he is in no condition to see anyone till he pulls himself together.  Liam texts back that he can’t make it.  When Hope texts back in response, “I hope you’re okay,” that sets up the end of the episode where Liam begins to hyperventilate and cannot catch his breathe, and is frightened and grief-stricken, and horrified at what he has done.  Bill comes to his aid and tells him he will not let anything happen to his son, and to dig deep to put this accident behind him.  Bill expresses that if Liam can’t do it himself, to lean on him.

However, Vinny was just ID’d in the hospital morgue by Finn (Tanner Novlan), so there’s that!

Kudos to both Scott Clifton and Don Diamont for the riveting scenes between father and son within the episode.

So, what did you think of Scott and Don’s performance? How will Bill and Liam be able to continue to cover-up the hit and run of Vinny? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, watch the final moments from the episode below.
