Colby Supports Cassandra on All My Children
AJ (Eric Nelsen) played Tickle Me Elmo with Miranda (Denyse Tontz) until she demanded he stop or she’d upchuck. I just don’t buy them as a romantic pairing. At the rate their friendship is going, one of these days I fully expect to see him braiding her hair while she decides what to dress him up in.
The two ended up on the beach, where AJ rubbed sunscreen on her. More tickling ensued, and they were soon interrupted by Heather (Stevie Steel) and some girls. Later, AJ went to get ice cream with Heather and left Miranda by herself. Of course, Hunter (Daniel Covin) and one of his friends showed up. The two started bullying Miranda about the size of her breasts and being a lesbian. All My Children REALLY needs to work the dialogue for its bullies. It is so stilted it's uncomfortable to watch.
Petey (Robert Scott Wilson) and Celia (Jordan Lane Price) shared a moment, until Colby (Brooke Newton) interrupted them. Brooke pulled Celia away to go back to the studio.
JR (Ryan Bittle) stopped by the Talk Tempo set to offer his services to Brooke (Julia Barr). Brooke didn’t seem enthused at first, but then admitted she liked it. After he left to make the sizzle reel he suggested, Dimitri (Michael Nader) arrived and questioned the decision.
JR quickly started throwing his weight around with one of the show’s staffers. Dimitri saved the poor man from JR’s wrath, and mollified the Chandler heir. Dimitri suggested he work on the sizzle reel from home. However, when JR returned home, he struggled with the reel. JR took his frustration out on his computer.
Billy Clyde Tuggle (Matthew Cowles) prepared for his photo to be taken.
Petey showed up and talked to Colby about the impression Celia had of them. Colby played coy. She asked him if he wanted to explore the “benefits” of their relationship. Petey turned her down and left Jane’s Addiction. David (Vincent Irizarry) showed up and asked if Colby would be interested in getting a little retribution. She was immediately onboard.
