    Other than the ridiculous name– the more Spectras the merrier — honestly CoCo– sounds like a breakfast ceral

    Obviously you never hear of the fabulous Coco Channel…”Coco” Chanel was a French fashion designer and businesswoman. She was the founder and namesake of the Chanel brand. So the name falls into play.

    I heard of “Coco” Chanel– but that wasn’t her real name– her real name was Gabrielle Bonheur– adopting a nick name or giving yourself a persona for business is one thing, but naming your child Coco on purpose is quite another— I get this is a soap about designers and if they wanted a character name that reflected a fashion designer, instead of calling her Coco– I would have went with Chanel Spectra– sounds classier and doesn’t remind one of coco puffs.

    Coco is Sally Spectra, Sr.’s great niece, who has come to L.A with older sister , Sally and their grandmother, a wannabe Sally, Sr.
    Coco’s boyfriend , who is like four years younger than she is, is R.J, Ridge Forrester’s son, with Brooke.
    Their littlle romance is like watching paint dry.

    Do not like this storyline. at all.
    The new Sally Spectra overacts. I think it was foolish to try and recreate a storyline that cannot be repeated.

    I watched the show the other day while at home, and after not watching for a long while, how stupid and over the top.

    I love it! I think it’s fun and lively…and the budding romance between Sally and Thomas Forrester should be as well!

    Rebecca, I love these two together. The young woman playing Sally is not only pretty, but more natural than the other actresses on the show. Sadley, no one is interested in seeing her and Thomas’s relationship and business succeed, except her family. Steffi, always in her face, and doesn’t like the competition. Do not like Bill Spencer trying to sabatage their business and romance.

    Oh Dear…another blast from the past for a newer B&B watcher. Since I seem to have been going in circles with the two main “love” triangles,moor the last couple of years, how is Spectra going to help out.? Never heard of them until the last few days.

    I’m relatively new to the show too but it seems the Spectra’s were a competing fashion house run by Sally Spectra years ago…from what I gather she was loud and boisterous and fun…a “character” who tried to give the Forrester Creations a run for their money…

    In real life I believe the actress died but last week the character (the older Sally Spectre who would probably be in her 70s…a contemporary of Eric) was living the high life on some island. In comes her namesake niece…aka Sally Spectra who is going to try to revitalize the Spectra fashion house. As we can see she’s also a livewire “character” who is more of a funky, fun chick with cool almost Betsy Johnson sensibilities which runs directly opposite to Steffie’s glamorous more upscale look and the Forresters’s more chi-chi upscale fashion house.

    I haven’t caught up yet…I’m a couple of days behind so maybe this happened already…but it seems like there will be one or two things happening: a romance between Sally and Thomas Forrester and/or he’ll join their design house and compete with his own family since he feels he was passed over in the company.

    Could be a fun story…

    Thanks for the overview. It can be just too-too at Forester Creations and surrounds. Just so funky Sally stays out of “live wired” rooms, etc., with Steffy…ala Ivy.

    rebecca1 replied

    LOL…in Steffie’s defense I don’t think she meant to electrocute her…but I guess when you’re the one being zapped that doesn’t really matter!

    Looks like there will be some girl fights starting with the one Sally caused at the restaurant. She’s waaaay over the top but then again so was Delia and David from OLTL…seems like soaps like to throw a little comic relief into the mix. Whether it works depends on the likeability of the “out of the box” character…

    Wait B&B is adding more characters to a show that has a lot of actors who do not see any time lately. Should they be adding a slew of new generation of characters to a show that struggles to give the actors they do have any air time?

    Will they replace the fading Avant family??

    I agree. Just hope they stop the tired story line of evil Quinn. Thinking the Spectra’s will add a little humor to the failing love triangles. Sick of the Ridge and Quinn BS, There needs to be one stable relationship. Eric and Quinn should be the stable head of this dysfunctional show. Only hoping the swapping is over. So if it takes some new blood, give it a chance. :)

    I wasn’t around in the original Sally days, but kept up on all soap’s storylines somewhat via the soap mags back then and occasional view when something big was happening.I’m really liking this fresh infusion of characters right now. I think the casting for Sally Jr., Saul and Shirley could not be more spot on! Just got of glimpse of the Darlita character and she seems kinda of blah, but will see what she can do. Obviously Darlene Conley was tailor made for the Sally V.1. The fake remotes with ‘her’ on an island is beyond hokey! Not in the least believable. They should have had Ms. Conley’s passing in the Sally storyline when the clan came on board. That would help us understand Sally V.2′s fire and motivation to revive the fashion house. Love her and Thomas together, finally he seems to have found a great on- screen match! Whatever they do, just don’t put Sally, Darlita or the incoming Coco to be in any triangles with Liam and Wyatt!!

    I applaud B&B’s consideration of history and reviving a good counterpoint to what has become very bland goings on at Forrester. I just fear no one will be able to bring to the proceedings what Darlene Conley did as Sally Spectra.

    Why are they bringing on all these newbies? How long has it been since we saw Caroline Spencer? I can’t wait to see her reaction to Brook & Ridge getting engaged. Remember how Brook use to snap her fingers and say she could get him back at anytime. I want Caroline back just in time for Ridge to dump Brook yet again for Quinn this time.

    Sure miss Darlene Conley- RIP- not sure leaving Sally alive on an island was a great idea. That said the young actress playing this generation’s Sally is doing a great job. While not imitating Sally it seems she has done her homework- and even some of her intonations can be pictured with the original (and inimitable) Sally saying things just the same way.
    I was so sick of the ongoing stories that this change has been quite welcome. And if it actually gives Thomas a storyline all the better. I had been skipping B & B for the most part the last few months- tho’ I do like Quinn- now I’m kind of intrigued.
    And I liked the Avants for the most part- the ball was just dropped there…

    I would switch the avants for the Spectras anyday. They are the fabric of the show and i could not be more trilled that they are back. I say good bye Rick Maya Nicole Sashe Zende and Ivy and hello Spectras

    RJ and CoCo?!?!?!

    Yes; I think RJ and CoCo is probably on the horizon. They can double with Thomas and Sally!

    I have watched this show from the very beginning. Within the year after Darlene Conley passed away I remember the episode where her death was announced by Eric and Stephanie. Now the character is alive? This is a ridiculous storyline. Bring us something original!

    Hi Violet…

    I’m hoping once Thomas finds out about Bill’s insane scheme it’ll only make Sally & Thomas closer. And the fact that Caroline is going along with the scheme is worse than Sally going along with her Gram’s scheme to steal designs! Both women were convinced to do things they thought wrong..this one is far worse. LOL.

    By the way, “Sally” is dating ” Michael” …Chad Duell…(GH) in real life!

    Actually, Violet is correct. Sarah Ramos played Haddie Braverman, Courtney played Ruby Rizzoli. (Just googled it.)

    Feb/August…no matter. No time limit.
