THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Chelsea’s husband, Calvin Found Dead … But Just How Did He Die?

Photo: JPI

On The Young and the Restless, suspicion could grow on Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan), after her latest husband, Calvin Boudreau (John Burke) is found dead in their suite.  At the end of Friday’s episode of Y&R, Chelsea frantically called Nick (Joshua Morrow) after saying she found Calvin dead.

Before that call, a scene ensued between Calvin and Chelsea where he told his wife that he went to see Adam (Mark Grossman). From the conversation, he’s decided it’s best for Connor to be with is biological father.  Chelsea is livid.  She thinks Adam had something to do with Calvin changing his tune.

Then, a major argument ensues.  Calvin wants Adam to have custody of Connor.  Chelsea reels that she will never give up her son!   He then hits her with a low blow reminding her that her other son, Johnny is being raised by his father.  Chelsea cannot believe what she is hearing.  What came next could be problematic for Chelsea when Calvin tells her he wants them to start a family of their own, and by Connor being raised by Adam, they can do that.  She is beyond upset.

Meanwhile, Adam had Kevin (Greg Rikaart) keeping taps on Chelsea and Calvin.  And later, when Kevin texts Adam that the EMT’s have arrived at Chelsea’s suite, Adam decides to head over there.   When he arrives, Nick is comforting Chelsea.   Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) shows up there too!

When Adam has a moment with Chelsea; he tells her now there are no more roadblocks, and they can finally  be the way they were meant to be.

But, how did Calvin died?  Did Chelsea kill him?  Did Calvin suffer a massive heart attack from their argument?  Did Adam do something to cause his death? How do you think this will play out?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

But first, check out the latest promo for this week’s Y&R where it looks like Chelsea is the guilty party in Calvin’s death and Adam will use it to his advantage.

I agree, Channing. Does anyone really care about Calvin? NuBabyAdam? Chelsea? Terrible storyline.
Even the wardrobe is unappealing—-that white, lacy number Victoria was wearing looked like one of a Catholic priest’s vestments during High Mass.

I have a feeling, that Calvin is alive. He faked his death, that’s my prediction.

I can’t predict how this will play out because I have no idea what’s going on in this story. They’ve given Calvin a very poor backstory with little detail, so it’s hard to even care that he’s dead. We didn’t get to see his conversation with Adam, so perhaps they’re in cahoots somehow, and Calvin’s death was faked to push Adam and Chelsea back together? And what’s with Calvin adopting Connor and then doing a complete 180 and reversing his opinion right after he meets Adam? I’m really not sure about any of this, but what I do know is… Read more »

Stupid rides, again.
Nobody ‘murdered’ Calvin.
Adam, Chelsea, and others are Not cold-blooded murders.
It’s stupid to dangle a red herring hoping some less brain heavy peoples would believe Adam is a cold-blooded murder or any others.
Calvin simply died.
but– they/writers will run us a stupid whodunit, naww they can’t be that lamebrained, could they?

Hi SuOOO Sorry, I don’t agree with you on this one! First of all Adam has stated that he will do whatever it takes to get Chelsea and Conner back, and I believe him. You have to remember this isn’t the same Adam. They have created a whole new character, and named him Adam. I do not underestimate him in any way. Paul said there is no signs of foul play, but I don’t think Calvin just died in his sleep. I do not believe Chelsea did anything to him, unless she has stuff she carries around with her that… Read more »

I have read that Nick calls Avery Baily Clark to GC for help. Probably with his fight to keep Christian, and maybe for Chelsea too. She sure was a lot better lawyer than Brittney. I liked her and Nick together too, although she was somewhat Betty Crockerish.

Once again Chelsea is playing Nick to get what she needs whatever that might be she can’t play Adam everyone knows she loves Adam what’s her motive?she using Nick so Adam and her can have both boys other than that the story line makes no sense

Already seen the results. But I do want to say – and see if anyone agrees – that Calvin’s death was premature. My first thought when he arrived at the restaurant when Chelsea & Nick were having dinner, was that he was a nasty piece of work; and definitely controlling. Nick saw that there was something off between Chelsea & Calvin. Then I was stunned when he told Chelsea she should give Connor to Adam. He also said he had always wanted a son of his “own” – so much for his attachment to Connor. I think it would have… Read more »

Not surprised to see the ratings tanking. Maybe its because of nonsense like this – Chelsea returns but she comes back with a husband we know nothing about with and a murder/death and we are supposed to care? Really writers!!! Will someone please tell the writers that Sage and Nick were married when Christian was born. Nick is the boys legal father and Adam has zero parental rights to him. In the real world if Adam brought a court case it would be laughed out of court. Its mindless uninteresting drama. The ratings of this show are going to continue… Read more »

Well from what I am reading nobody seems to remember what all crimes Chelsea committed before she left town . Adam is totally being written one note very upsetting that JM seems to tell the writers here is who I want to work with just because he is best buddies with MCE they are eating up the show I guess I have indeed lost my favorite soap.

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.

Courtesy/ABC

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.

Courtesy/ABC

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..
