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!

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.

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.

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Jesse Metcalfe Eliminated, Chrishell Stause Gets A Surprise From NKOTB

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.)

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Funeral Brings The Alzheimer’s Storyline Full Circle to Its Heart-Tugging Conclusion

When a soap opera allows a full episode to stay in the story they are telling, it can often make for a riveting hour of television.  This was the case and then some on Thursday’s emotional ending to General Hospital’s Alzheimer’s storyline; when the character of Mike Corbin (Max Gail) was given a proper send-off – a funeral – and being eulogized by those who loved and cared for him.

When GH is at its best through the years has been when it tackles social issues of our time, and this story will stand among the iconic soap’s best.  The backdrop of the story was that of father and son, grappling with and coming to terms with the past, finding love, forgiveness and redemption against this most horrific of diseases that has afflicted so many.

In the episode, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) go to church and prepare themselves for the emotional day as mourners come through and share their grief and condolensces and love for Mike.  Those included: Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth – back for this one), Stella (Vernee Watson), Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and a touching moment between Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) and Carly where the legal eagle says to Carly that if she ever needs to drink and vent let her know.

 

As the funeral begins, one by one Mike’s family and friends say beautiful words of what he meant to them,. Michael reflects about how his grandfather loved to party and how he’d like them all to raise a glass for him. . Olivia, speaks on behalf of Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), and how close Mike and Dante were.  Ava (Maura West) talks about the love and kindness and joy he brought to little Avery.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) got up to speak, things became even more heartbreaking when she flashes back to a scene where she was having a terrible time and Mike was there for – always a great listener- but he tells he eventually, he will not remember her.

GH did a outstanding job of selecting scenes throughout the eulogies that punctuated who Mike was … and how he tied in to all of the characters lives.  Jason (Steve Burton) shared how he knew it wasn’t easy for Mike to come back and try to make amends with Sonny, but that no matter what, Mike kept trying to get through to Sonny to make things right between them.

Stella’s moment was also heartbreaking recalling the man who became her friend.  Carly, who was the glue that held Sonny and the family together during Mike’s illness, shared her doubt if the family could handle Mike, and what was to come, but how Sonny helped his father find inner-peace..

When Sonny gets up to talk he reveals he had a lot of anger towards his father, and how the illness made him truly see the man his dad was inside.  Sonny tells his dad he is proud of him and how grateful he was that he came back into his life.   Next, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) sings as the mourners reflect back on Mike in a touching series of juxtaposed clips against the characters in the moment at the funeral.

After the service had concluded Sonny and Carly talk how Morgan and Mike are together now, but Sonny asks for some time alone in the church. It is then Mike appears and tells his son it’s time he forgave himself, since Sonny forgave Mike.  He tells Sonny that he has made him very proud.  As he gets up to leave he kisses Sonny on the forehead and goes towards the light and to heaven.  Just after that, Dante appears at the front of the church, shocking Sonny in a beautiful analogy that now this father and son must deal with what’s ahead in their relationship, just as Sonny and Mike had done.

This episode featured beautiful work by Maurice Benard, and Max Gail and everyone in the supporting cast who had their moments.  It was an ensemble piece but led by Benard and Gail, who should both be receiving Emmys in 2021 for their work..
