Back in March of 2011, Carlos Pelz, a former hairstylist of CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful," filed a lawsuit against CBS Television, Bell-Phillip Television Productions and "B&B" senior supervisors Ron Weaver and Jody Lawrence-Miller, claiming defamation after learning of a March 2010 internal memo that cited him as "lazy, ambivalent, produced poor-quality work, was incompetent and was unfit to continue as 'key' hairstylist for the show," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Last week, Pelz lost his case after the overseeing judge dismissed his claims on summary judgment.

As we have been reporting for the past week, "Days of our Lives" actress Melissa Reeves (Jennifer Horton) has been embroiled in a controversy over a recent tweet she made to her followers about free speech. "Chick-fil-a today!!!! Loved every bite of it;)!! Land of the free and home of the brave. Love that we all appreciate free speech, right?” said Reeves on Tuesday, August 1. Since that day several people, including fans of Reeves, and of her show, have bombarded the actress with responses that either agree with her comment, call for her to apologize and/or clarify her statement, or used unmentionable language against her. Some of her daytime brethren have also spoken out on the issue, but not as harshly. On Thursday, August 16, Reeves finally responded by deleting her Twitter account...but not before making a bold statement.
