THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Brooke Bitch-Slaps Thomas!

Photo: JPI

When you’ve got a good baddie on a soap why not flaunt it!  That’s exactly what CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful has chosen to do with Matthew Atkinson in the role of the twisted Thomas Forrester!

Friday’s cliffhanger episode featured a massive showdown between Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang, who once again proves why she is a force to be reckoned with in soapland) and Thomas.

At the Forrester mansion, Thomas gets into a heated exchange with Brooke. He wants his life back, and she is stopping him from having that.  Brooke replies she is treating him as he deserves.  After all, it was Thomas who tortured her daughter, Hope for months and hid the truth that Beth was alive! Thomas says he didn’t kill anyone …. and Brooke says she is still not sure he is not responsible for Emma’s death … and while he may not be able to be proven guilty in a court of law, she’s the one that is handing out a life sentence to him!.

Thomas continually brings up his son, Douglas, and how he won’t let her daughter see the little boy.  So, he tells Brooke she better change her tune and fast!  He is a Forrester and she is nothing but a Logan, and his father will never turn his back on him, so she should give it up!

Then, Thomas reams into Brooke that she is messing with the wrong man, and she destroyed his mother and their entire family happiness, by stealing Ridge away from them.  Thomas tells Brooke he’s sick and tired of the Logan sanctimony and it ends now!

Brooke has had enough … and with anger and tears in her eyes slaps him across the face and defiantly sneers:  “How dare you!”  Then, Thomas punctuates his plans by telling Brooke that she may have his father tied around her “slutty” little finger, but her reign of terror ends with him.

A great scene from Katherine Kelly Lang and Matt Atkinson, and looks like there is going to be plenty of trouble ahead for Brooke, especially with Thomas out to ruin her life and marriage to his father … and when he gets the ammo from Vinny that Shauna spent the night with Ridge!

Watch Brooke slap Thomas below.  Then, let us know what you thought of the showdown via the comment section.

This was KKL and Matthew Atkinson at their best. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the bitch slap was the best one so far this year (Liz slapping Kim on GH doesn’t even come close). If anyone can point out a bitch slap better than this one, by all means, please do comment.

I am excited to see what B&B brings its viewers this fall. Thomas is no where near done bringing his brand of revenge and vitriol and once again, Hope and baby Beth along with Douglas will be collateral damage.

I know I am late getting in on this, but I agree. That was a slap heard round the world! It took me down memory lane to the good old days when Stephanie SR and Brooke used to beat each other to a pull. I still say the great Susan Flanery is the almighty queen of the bitch slap. To me, it did not get any better. Seeing Stephanie haul off and crack Brooke always brought me joy. Thanks for listening and sorry to be so long winded. Happy viewing!

Stephanie was the best, I agree. No one got the better of her. I loved her and Sally’s squabbles. I’ll never forget when Sally gave Stephanie a haircut. That was priceless. I’ll have to watch it again on Utube.

The Bold and the Beautiful – what a mess. I have always thought Brooke Logan is a slut. She goes after any man she wants and uses any plots she has available to achieve her goal. She has had a relationship with just about every male character on the show. Now she wants to be miss high and mighty. I agree with Thomas, but not the way he is going about it. He is not happy with Brooke. He remembers what happened in his childhood. Heck, Brooke even went after Bill, her own sister’s husband. I’m sorry, but the character… Read more »

I can’t wait until Thomas is uncovered for the man he really is by Ridge. Thomas should be punished by going to prison for what he did to Emma let alone all the other things he has done. If he doesn’t get punished soon I’m going to stop watching the program all together. Great slap Brooke, you should have used both hands !!

I have just about stopped because Thomas turns my stomach. I only watch the days he isn’t on.
Ridge’s blind loyalty to him drives me nuts too, especially with Thomas trying to break up his father and Brooke’s marraige.

General Hospital

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

WWE Royal Rumble: Sami Zayn Turns on the Bloodline, Cody Rhodes and Rhea Ripley to Wrestlemania

The best soap opera storyline going (the WWE’s ‘Bloodline’ internal struggles, betrayals, and alliances), had its long-awaited major development following the conclusion of the Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens WWE Universal Championship headliner at this weekend’s Royal Rumble PPV streaming on Peacock.  It provided viewers and fans with one of most dramatic moments ever witnessed in WWE history.

However, before all of that, it was the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble with each of the winner’s getting their shot at at the championship and to headline Wrestlemania in Los Angeles this coming April.

Courtesy/WWE

As expected, Cody Rhodes, who made his triumphant return after an 8-month layoff from the ring – recovering from a torn pectoral muscle and surgery – beat 29 competitors to win the Men’s Royal Rumble finally eliminating Gunther. For it was Gunther who set a record for being in the ring the longest during a Royal Rumble match. Gunther was entrant #1 of the 30 men vying for the shot at the title.

Also as anticipated, Rhea Ripley, who has been on a hot streak of late as part of the ‘Judgement Day’, punched her ticket to Wrestlemania besting 29 other women. Ripley outlasted Liv Morgan after Morgan got misted in the face by mistake by Asuka and Rhea used that to her advantage to be the last woman remaining in the ring.

But all eyes were on the main event of the night and just what WWE Universal Champ Roman Reigns had in store for Sami Zayn. Prior to the match, Reigns had told Zayn he had one last test for him to prove his allegiance to the ‘Bloodline’. Problem was: Reigns was wrestling Sami’s best friend, Kevin Owens for the title.  Reigns, came to the ring with only Zayn and special counsel Paul Heyman by his side – the rest of the ‘Bloodline’ were conspicuous by its absence.

After Reigns defeated Kevin Owens, the rest of the Bloodline (Jimmy and Jey Uso and Solo Sikoa) joined him in the ring for a monumental beat down of Owens including handcuffing him to the ropes.  When Reigns demanded Zayn find a chair, Sami was not pleased.  After locating a chair under the ring, he tossed it to Reigns.  Once in the ring, Zayn protected Owens and told Reigns he did not have to do this. That’s when, Reigns demanded Zayn deliver the chair shot.

Courtesy/WWE

Instead, Zayn hit Reigns in the back with the chair, thus ending his sensational run with the The ‘Bloodline’! What happened next was a sad beat down by Solo Sikoa, Jimmy Uso and Reigns of Sami.

However, in a surprise twist, Jey Uso, who had originally been skeptical of Zayn’s intentions in the ‘Bloodline’, turned his back on Reigns and the family, and walked out of the ring emotionally upset.

One can only imagine … perhaps Uso and Zayn might team up and it might mean the end of the Usos Tag Team Championship run? Will it be Owens and Zayn teaming up vs. The Bloodline? Zayn vs. Reigns for a title shot?

This story has been executed so well by the WWE that it has captivated audience and made Sami Zayn a beloved fan favorite in the process.

So, what did you think of the collapse of the ‘Bloodline’? Did you think Cody and Rhea would win their respective Royal Rumble’s? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out some of the highlights from the Peacock streaming PPV below.

General Hospital

GH’s Eden McCoy Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Not often does a week’s worth of soaps offer up so many outstanding performances. However, the beginning of 2023 brought just that in dramatic scenes featuring General Hospital’s Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt), Willian Lipton (Cameron), Parry Shen (Brad) and Days of our Lives Lauren Koslow (Kate).

When all was said and done there was one performance, that for us, rang most true. For anyone who has ever gone through a break-up and had to let someone you care about down, you could feel and understand the raw emotion displayed by General Hospital’s Eden McCoy (Josslyn).

Photo: ABC

Not only did McCoy deliver during the breakup scenes as Joss broke Cameron’s heart into pieces, but later, Joss is shocked and guilt-ridden to find out that Britt died from ‘The Hook’s’ attack after saving her life, and then having to admit the whole thing to her mother, Carly (Laura Wright). Never mind the one other event of that fateful night.  Joss had sex with Dex (Evan Hofer) before she headed over to Kelly’s to talk to Cameron, realizing she should have cleared-up her relationship, first.

McCoy really shined when Josslyn arrived at Kelly’s to tell Cameron things have changed between them. She tearfully apologized for not coming to him sooner.  She promises she will always love him, but she is not in love with him anymore, and she lets him know there is no going back. They can’t fix things.  As Josslyn pours her heart out knowing what this was doing to Cameron, it was a five-hankie moment, indeed.

Photo: ABC

In addition, when Josslyn spills most all to her mother (she left out the part of having sex with Dex), you could genuinely feel the bond between the two, which as we have stated many times through the years, speaks to the perfect casting of McCoy as Carly’s daughter and her on-screen chemistry with Laura Wright.

For all of these well-played and outstanding moments, Michael Fairman TV names Eden McCoy our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.

Now let us know, what did you think of Eden’s work in the break-up scenes between Joss and Cam and its aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
