THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Brooke’s Date with Hollis Gets Underway …. How Do You Think It Will Turn Out?

Photo: CBS

On Thursday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, Paul (Hollis Chambers) who know goes by ‘Hollis’, and is the bartender from Il Giardino, gets his dream date with Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang).

While the young man tells Deacon (Sean Kanan), how much he respects Brooke and she is gorgeous to boot, will there be a steamy connection or just friendship between the two?

Meanwhile, Brooke and her new gal pal, Taylor (Krista Allen) are nervous and excited for Brooke’s first date, in what seems forever and certainly post-Ridge. Taylor tries to give her bestie some advice on having fun, and just going with the flow, and that Brooke deserves this and to remember, she has no obligation to the guy.  Taylor adds, “This could be the beginning of a brand new chapter for you.”

When Hollis shows up at Brooke’s, he is instantly smitten by her, sharing, “I just need to catch my breath.” Taylor stammers and decides it’s time for her to get out of dodge so the two can have their date.

Brooke, pouring two glasses of sparkling water, shares a toast with Hollis to the beginning of a wonderful friendship.  Next, Brooke says all of this is surprising to her. When Hollis responds, “Which part?” Brooke answers, “Being on a date with you.” Hollis shares, “I’m excited to see where tonight takes us.”

So what do you think B&B fans? Are you all in for Brooke and Hollis to hook-up, date, just be friends? Comment below.

It is a surprising turn of events, Brooke (any of B&B character really) dating outside ‘the family.’ Hope this can be an opportunity for character growth and the start of a stalker storyline.

Should read NOT the start of a stalker storyline … Sorry!

I think it would be cool for Dave Reed to re-enter her life, or, better yet… STAY SINGLE!

Love idea of Brooke single. It’s about time for her to be powerful. She received the blessing of the dying Stephanie and the writers just ignored that moment they created.

I’m glad they gave Hollis more to do. He is easy on the eyes and seems to be talented. I also like the romance of it all. They need more characters like Hollis to spice things up!

He is a greasy, icky boy. He is just infatuated with Brock mainly because she’s filthy rich and he is a loser with no money.

I so agree with new men spicing up Bold and Beautiful. You can’t always have Bill’s kids. Or Ridge for that matter.

Hollis is creepy and way too young. Brooke is filthy rich and Hollis is a bar back. He is way out of his realm. Brooke needs an older rich man absolutely not Ridge. Taylor mind your own business or are you getting Brooke out the way so you can get your claws back on greasy Ridge. ( he really needs to wash his greasey hair). YUCK

After being raped the idea of Brooke being alone in her home with a man she barely knows was a HUGE miscalculation on the part of the writers. Did you forget she was a rape victim?
Poor writing on your parts.
Not to mention it’s quite telling that Taylor is pushing her to date. She just wants Ridge to herself.

Taylor deserves to have Ridge anyway she can get him. After all we haven’t seen very much of them together without Brooke in the way. I like to see Taylor and Brook stay friends but not likely if Taylor takes Ridge back. Yeah everybody should wash their hair but this Hollis guy looks like a gigolo if that’s what they’re going for. Bell is known for his surprises. Let’s hope he’s surprises us with some brand new hunks.

Judgmental Ho much.

Ho,
I loved Thorston Kay on AMC but he’s so different here, looks and everything.The overly facial hair and yes his hair always looks like it needs trimming and a good shampoo.Did you see the other Ridge? Different as night and day.

I want Brooke and Taylor to couple up

YUK!

No way. How pathetic
The 2 need boyfriends
Yo start their rivalry
All over again

Aren’t you getting tired of the Brooke and Taylor Feud, fighting all the time? I’ve been watching Bold and Beautiful for 20 years but the writers need new and refreshing storylines not the same old ones we can predict the ending. Maybe they’re gearing for the younger crowd that hasn’t seen the plots like I have.

From Friday’s episode it looks like the writers are leaning in that direction.

I would like to see that happen that would be awesome.

Yuk out Taylor with Bill or maybe even Carter. NOT BROOKE

this is bold as we know how long before hollis becomes unhinged hope it doesn’t go that way but she will either be saved by taylor or thomas

Richard,
Unhinged? For sure. Brooke would make any guy crazy!

Hope Brooke has the fortitude to end the Hollis thing before it starts and not follow on old patterns. You would think psychologist Taylor would quit encouraging her, especially since she has seen first hand what happens when you meddle in people’s lives from her own kids Steffy and Thomas when they tried to get her and Ridge back together. But what am I saying…it’s a soap and will get messy. And I’m not so sure there wouldn’t develop competition between “best friends” when Ridge enters the picture again.

Watched B@B since the 1st show, but if they make Brook an Taylor a couple IM DONE !

Me too

I think the storyline of an older woman and a younger man would be a lot more interesting than Taylor and Brooke. Not sure I would want to watch if it goes in that direction.

Jr,
That would not be my cup of tea either. I think they tried a similar version years ago on Y&R with Catherine Chancelor but I remember the fans didn’t like it.

Stupid.Brooke is past her prime.Not a femme fatal anymore.

Stop this young guy wouldn’t be interested in this past femme fatale.Brooke past her prime.Completely stupid storyline.

Dorian Lord bedded men a third of her age. Monica Quartermaine had an affair with someone who turned out to be her nephew by marriage. Those were accepted by viewers. Somewhere along the line it became less tolerable. Erica Kane and Ryan were kind of off-putting. Is Brooke as dynamic as Dorian or is she more ego-centric like Erica?

Why not hook-uo, Live n Let live

If you take Brook and Taylor to lesbian status I probably will quit watching, it’s already too much as far as I’m concerned and as far as Hollis goes this is also weird , he’s creepy and the story line makes no since all.

I think they should hook up because she is older means nothing love is ageless once u become an adult. Her kids are grown it’s her time again to do as what pleases her and find Taylor and Ridge someone else fresh story line kids are grown life goes on.

Yes put Ridge with someone other than Taylor or Brooke.

I hear he may come home married, possibly the blonde bimbo from Vegas, but for real this time.

I think Brooke and Thomas would be interesting. Maybe all his hate toward her is because he really has other feelings for her

I think Ridge is going to come back married to someone else.

How old is Brook supposed to be now….how old is Hollis….does he have any power. Or is Brook the older woman with power this time?????
I missed something

Jk Tren,
I would think,according to her two oldest kids in their early thirties and Hope, that she’s got to be nearing 60 and Hollis looks to be late 20s. As far as power, he’s a lowly bartender/waiter. The only power is his youth. Brook has everything else.

What is the contract status of Thorsten Kaye? And really let’s knock it off with the lesbian nonsense ! You do know you can have friends and not bring sexual undertones in everything !!

Kay,
You are right of course but they sure are trying to make it tantalizing and using lots of innuendo. Are they or aren’t they? Unfortunately, I think a lot of fans are hoping for more than friends.

Thorsten Kaye spoke last year he’d be taking some time off, so that is why he isn’t on the canvas; he’s still on the series as a regular, but he is not filming.

I’m waiting for date between Brook and her new best friend Taylor…..

An older woman with a younger man would be exciting. We all know it would never work in a long run but anything is better than another run of Ridge and Brooke. Please don’t do that to us. It would have been fun to see Deacon and Brooke hit it off again. But you already have Sheila with Deacon. Yet again we all know nobody takes anyone from Sheila.

She should date him!!! He is perfect

WWE Clash at the Castle: CM Punk Costs Drew McIntryre Title Victory in His Home Country

On Saturday, the WWE visited Glasgow, Scotland for the first time in company history for the PLE on Peacock, Clash at the Castle. Five matches took place inside OVO Hydro Arena, and each one had a title on the line.

There were four wrestlers on the card from Scotland, making this even more dramatic, and the crowd in attendance was electric throughout singing, chanting, booing and cheering for their favorites.

DREW MCINTRYE VS. DAMIAN PRIEST for the WWE Championship

The man of the hour in Glasgow was supposed to be Drew McIntyre. This was to be the Scottish warrior’s opportunity to win the WWE Championship belt from Damian Priest. Things looked like a McIntrye win was on the way, but when the referee accidentally got knocked out and Drew hit a Claymore on Priest, he clearly won the match with over a three-count, only with no referee there, it could not be made official.

All of a sudden a ref was seen running to ringside and when he slid in the ring to do the official count, he stopped at two! Drew looked up and the camera revealed it was McIntyre’s arch enemy, CM Punk. Next, Drew started to attack Punk, but the “Voice of the Voiceless” gave him a low blow, costing him the match as Priest went on the offense while the original knocked out referee got back the ring just in time for Priest to pin McIntyre with a three-count.

It should be noted there was a major botched move and scary moment within the match.  riest tried to jump off the ring but he got his foot caught in the ropes and could not easily be extricated. After minutes, McIntyre was able to flip him up and over to get him out of the ropes. It was clear throughout the match that Priest was injured as he hobbled around for most of it.

CODY RHODES VS. AJ STYLES “I Quit” match for the Universal WWE Heavyweight Championship

Has there ever been a babyface as over as Cody Rhodes? We don’t think so. His popularity continues to soar and on this night in Glascow, Scotland, there was nothing but chants of “Cody! Cody Rhodes!”

In the rematch between Cody Rhodes and AJ Styles for the Universal title, it was an “I quit” match, where the only way you can lose is by saying the word “I quit!” when the referee puts a mic in front of your face, so everyone can hear the words.  That means, it would be an often brutal match.

Photo: WWE

One of the key moments occurred when Mamma Rhodes slapped AJ at ringside, which allowed Cody to recover and throw a chair at Styles who then went backward over the top rope and landed on a table and crashed through it (it was the table strategically placed there earlier in the night that most forgot about during the match).

At that point, Rhodes landed three Cross Rhodes and handcuffed Styles to the ropes as he relentlessly hit him with the chair. Styles didn’t quit yet but when Rhodes brought the steel steps into the ring, Styles all of a sudden uttered, “I Quit.” Cody retains the title. For good measure, and to show he can be a badass too, we guess. Rhodes threw the steps at Style for a punctuation point ending their feud for now.

As Rhodes walked back from the ring, he was accosted by the Bloodline – Solo Sikoa, Tanga Loa and Tama Tonga. However, Kevin Owens and Randy Orton came to “The American Nightmare’s” defense. It was not lost on the WWE Universe, that “The Viper” looked like he may take aim at Cody’s title with some serious looks captured on social media. Could SummerSlam in August feature Randy vs Cody for the title? Stay tuned.

Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill vs. Zoey Stark and Shayna Baszler vs. Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn for the Women’s Tag Team titles.

The champs, Belair and Cargill have looked unstoppable and unbeatable with their sheer strength and ability to overpower their opponents. However, on this night, the crowd was firmly behind Scotland’s Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn. In a three-way for the title, the belts can change hands even if the current champions are not involved in the pin. That was the case here. In a shocker, as Belair and Cargill looked like they were about to win after their power combo on Shayna Baszler, it was Isla Dawn who snuck in and got the pin.

Cargill and Belair are stunned outside the ring, and Alba and Isla celebrated their massive victory in their home country in front of their families who give them bouquets of flowers at ringside. It should be noted, that Alba Frye tragically lost her mother, less than a month ago when she was hit by a driver in Florida. During the post-show press conference, Triple H said Alba and Isla winning the titles had nothing to do with the loss of Frye’s mother; in terms of the timing of the decision to have the duo win the belts. Now, could this be the end for Jade and Bianca? Will Jade turn heel on Bianca?

OTHER MATCH-UPS

Sami Zayn defeated Chad Gable to retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship – the main takeaway coming out of the match is the continued disfunction in the Alpha Academy and Otis walking away with an ‘injured’ Maxine, and not helping Gable out when he needed it to win the match. Will Otis now officially turn on Gable?

Bayley defeated Scotland’s Piper Niven to retain the WWE Women’s Championship – Niven gave it her all for the hometown crowed, but Bayley’s in-ring savvy and finisher were too much for her.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Elizabeth and Jason Have a Heart-to-Heart; Is a Liason Reunion Possible?

Have Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) 2.0 finally gone kaput? It would seem so. On Monday’s June 10th episode of General Hospital, it looks like the two now have what could be an insurmountable rift. Finn is drinking and can’t stop. Liz finds him with another woman drunk in his apartment, and can’t put herself in another relationship with someone who has an addiction (Remember, Lucky?).

Who should save Liz from an uncomfortable situation with Finn, but none other than Jason (Steve Burton). He comes upon on the scene where Finn is grabbing Liz’s hand to not leave him, but she insists it’s over between them.

Finn has hit his lowest point.  He has continued to spiral downward since the death of his father, Gregory.  Jason brings Liz to the Metro Court pool, which is closed at this time.

She admits to Jason, she wasn’t ready to go home and answer questions from her kids. A somber Jason says that she deserves better than what Finn is giving to her right now, and Liz feels so do her kids. They dip their feet in the pool. Liz jokes she can’t believe she got thee Jason Morgan to take off his shoes. He coyly asks her not to tell anyone.

Liz says she wants to support Finn through his grief, but Jason says Finn is pushing her away. She asks Jason how he knew to find her at Finn’s. That’s when he reveals, their son, Jake was worried about her, so it was Jake who reached out to him.

Courtesy/ABC

Next, Liz thanks Jason for being here for him, listening to her and extolling some advice.  Jason says he knows he is no place to be giving advice because he left her and Sam to raise his sons all on their own.

However, Liz points out it’s not because he didn’t want to be there. On that note, she’s pretty sure he wasn’t on vacation all the years he was away from his children. Jason says he’s here now and he will do whatever he can to make things up to Jake. Liz says just showing up to help her will go a long way with Jake, as it also goes along way with her.

You can watch the heartfelt scenes between Rebecca Herbst and Steve Burton below. Liason has been trending this evening on X.  Should GH consider putting Elizabeth and Jason back together? Weigh-in via the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Gregory’s Loved Ones Gather to Say Goodbye

On the Wednesday, June 7th episode of General Hospital, it was time for Gregory Chase’s (Gregory Harrison) memorial, which as Gregory wanted would be having his ashes spread with his loved ones in attendance.

The memorial service was held at the park bench in which he used to sit and read to Violet (Jophielle Love), which now has a plaque with his name imprinted on it.

Chase (Josh Swickard) was put in charge of the gathering, by his late father. In very well-written scenes, each of the man’s loved ones and friends extolled words of wisdom they learned from him that will forever remain with them and in their hearts.

Finn (Michael Easton) shares how much his dad, who was suffering from ALS, loved this spot and that when the climb up the hill became too much, he insisted he could make it on his own. Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) speaks to what a good man that Gregory was. Violet reads a poem.

Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) opens up about how ALS is a devastating disease that takes resolve to handle, and Gregory had a lot of resolve. He made her aware of the limitations she put on her own life. She admits Gregory got her to jump out of a plane with him and that the two passionately kissed, which surprised everyone in attendance.

Photo: ABC

Tracy (Jane Elliot) talks with sadness about Gregory being a missed opportunity, and if she had known him sooner, longer and better, who knows what might have been. In the moral to her time with Gregory, Tracy expressed, “If an opportunity doesn’t present itself, make one. Contrary to conventional wisdom, you can miss what you didn’t have.”

Chase spoke last and says his dad taught him to find something remarkable in every person you meet. Next, Chase begins to scatter Gregory’s ashes around the tree, and then hands the container to Finn, so he can spread the last part of the ashes.

Afterwards, Tracy hosts a reception at the Metro Court. She and Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) share a shot for Gregory. Alexis tells Finn, she is heading to an AA meeting, but first they discuss the kiss with his dad. Elizabeth and her boys make their exit, and then Chase goes looking for Finn and finds him at the bar. What he sees upsets him, as Finn is knocking back shots one after the other.

What did you think about Gregory’s memorial service? Did you reach for the hankies? What do you think will happen next to Finn now that he is continuing to drink? Comment below.
