She said it was a "boutique PR firm", looking for a junior publicist.

FYI for those who are curious ...
A "boutique PR firm" is not a PR firm for boutiques.

Definition of a "boutique PR firm":
http://smallbusiness.chron.com/definition-boutique-pr-firm-19323.html
Quote:
 
A PR boutique firm, also known as a public relations boutique, is a business or agency that offers media outreach, media planning, marketing or special communications services for all types of businesses, including larger corporations with their own public relations or communications teams. Public relations boutiques specialize in raising the overall awareness of a brand, product or image of a company or person. They determine a strategy that will best publicize the product that will drive traffic and boost sales, according to the website PRToolKit.

PR Boutiques Come In All Sizes

Most PR boutiques are small- to medium-sized businesses that specialize in outreach to companies in specific industries, according to the Public Relations Society of America website. However, large PR boutique firms exist such as Edelman, APCO and Ruder Finn, which do research, marketing and can play a role in a company's overall marketing strategy and public perception. Edelman, for instance, has played a role in developing Nine Live's Cat Food's Morris the Cat character, promoted KFC's Colonel Sanders and is responsible for the dolphin-safe labels on Starkist's tuna cans. Ruder Finn has done public relations and marketing work with VAIO and TiVo.
Role

Public relations boutiques are hired by businesses to create or enhance advertising and the image and reputation of the company. PR boutiques will build a campaign and send out press releases that will target reporters and bloggers in radio, TV, Internet, newspapers and magazines. In addition, the public relations team will arrange interviews with executives and clarify a businesses view on issues to special interest groups. PR teams also handle controversies that are occurring within or about a company and restore confidence to the organization and its employees. This is called crisis management. In addition, many public relations boutiques also specialize in building social media campaigns, including video productions, according to the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics.


Too bad Abby didn't get the job because it sounds interesting although I could see how this type of firm would not hire someone outed in a regional publication as the other woman where children are involved.

Kristen is going to find Stefano's will and get it to him ASAP.

I guess EJ is getting written out. LOL

Kristen just saw the picture of Sami and Kate.
The dialogue/scene about the will is interesting since Stefano does not actually need his current will to make changes,he could just write a new will or add a codicil to the old one.

Kevin Dobson was also a main character on the original Kojack series in the 70's too.
Thank you.That was driving me crazy.My first thought was Hill Street Blues but I had a feeling that was incorrect.

I don't care how convoluted it is I love seeing MBE.... Hope this means we'll be seeing more of her..
I agree,I am so happy to see Kayla having screen time.Days has plenty of bad storylines that include bad actors.I have no problem with seeing a story line with a good actress.I thought MBE did a great job interacting with a rape victim and will do a great job in all aspects of the storyline which I hope includes Kayla and Jennifer discussing Jack with JJ to help him understand the transition his father made to the person he became.If the storyline does not go in that direction,I guess I am willing to take the bitter with the sweet with the latter being having a lot more MBE on screen.Perhaps the writers will give her more of the scenes involving patient/medical/hospital issues to her rather than Daniel and/or Melanie.
By the way even at eighteen years of age first day of an internship,Paige was way way out of line remaining at the door and listening to a conversation between a doctor and anyone.I thought a lot less of her on seeing this behavior.

Sami put Abby's name in the article, not Will. Whether Will was misguided in writing the article in the first place or na´ve to believe that Abby would remain anonymous as long as her name wasn't specifically mentioned is, IMO, beside the point, which is that he bent over backward trying to protect Abby from facing further consequences for something she had done. If she didn't want to be humiliated, she should have thought of that before she decided to have an affair with the man who was engaged to Sami Fucking Brady, of all people. She knew Sami wouldn't take that lying down. She even acknowledged as much earlier this year -- when she paused to catch a breath while chasing E.J. all over town and offering to remain his dirty little secret, that is. Her humiliation is on her and Sami, IMO, not Will, and I still maintain that she was really out of line when she lashed out at him and suggested that he was a whore for accepting money to write the article -- something she still hasn't apologized for saying. If she isn't a whore for sleeping with E.J. (and she's not), and Jennifer isn't a whore for accepting money to spin the hospital's negative stories and scandals into things that will look better in the press (and she's not), then Will isn't a whore for accepting money to write a completely factual article about things that actually happened.

Abby is acting like what Will did was worse than what she did, IMO, and that's just ludicrous. There's a lot of judging going on, and it's not coming from Will's side of the fence -- it's coming from Abby's side.

First of all, Abby and EJ both chased each other all over town.
Second of all, I'm glad you agree that she's not a whore.

Now to the dynamic between Will and Abby ...

There is an old idiom/expression used of writers and artists when they "prostitute" their work/talents. It's not about money like conventional prostitution. The expression/idiom means to compromise your principles in order to get fame and glory. I heard this expression used this way maybe 40 years ago, but not recently. A modern equivalent is a musician who tries to stay true to his/her artistry, but wants to be a famous rockstar, so then starts writing commercial stuff in order to get a record contract. I guess it's called being a "sell-out". But in the older meaning I'm referring to ... it wasn't about the money per se; -- it was more about the fame and adulation. (The money might come with the fame, of course.)

Methinks that whoever wrote that script with Abby saying that to Will -- I think that scriptwriter was going for the meaning I just explained. I can see both Abby and Will being familiar with that concept intellectually. When I watched that scene, I got that impression.

HOWEVER, I agree that "whore" was totally the *wrong* word for her to use.

The writers should have had her say *instead*... "Will, you compromised your principles for fame and finance". That would have made more sense within the context of her viewpoint. And I could have seen why she might have assumed that he did that.

It still would have been an inaccurate thing to say, seeing as he didn't *intend* to compromise his principles; and he wasn't doing it for the fame. But it would have been civil.

If she'd said he'd compromised his principles for fame and finance, then he could have seen where she was coming from, and then countered her argument.

By her calling him a whore, it was a slur and that's unacceptable.

My opinion is that Will was so gung-ho about becoming a co-breadwinner at home, that he threw all caution to the wind. And I think a small part of him was at least subconsciously aware that he was doing something dangerous just to get his goal accomplished. That isn't selling out. But ... it was a reckless pursuit of a goal.

I think that Abby is justified in asserting her continued anger at him.
But it was totally *wrong* for her to use a slur against him.
I'm not going to condone it from any character.
I'm completely agree, and I hate slut shaming slurs...although I know lots of artists and writers that would use the word "whore" to describe themselves when they take a job solely for the money.

Also, I think Will is completely and totally responsible for the contents of that article, whether he wanted to name Abigail or not. He was an idiot to trust Zoe (as Zoe was an idiot for not asking for Abigail's name to fact check). He was naive and stupid to trust Zoe, although Sonny should have told him Victor owned that magazine. The article wouldn't have been published without Will's vanity and ambition.

Edited add: And I respect Will for taking responsibility and realizing that he's responsible. At first, he was defensive saying he didn't want Abigail's name in the article, but now I think he realizes that on a basic level that's somewhat irrelevant. I think Abigail is fair about the situation, since she is angry with him but not as angry as she'd be if he had put her name in himself. She's not mad because he was spiteful or cruel or callous toward her, she's mad because he was vain and stupid.
I still think she should give Will and break or not to come to his home if she doesn't want to talk to him. She should also appreciate the fact that he didn't judge her or turn against her for sleeping with his mother's fiancÚ. He didn't judge her for being vain and stupid and uncaring towards his little siblings so she should give him a little break. If my cousin had an affair with my stepfather, I don't think I'll be as protective and understanding as Will's been towards Abigail.
She went to his home to spend time with and babysit her god daughter/cousin.In my opinion the scene did not play that Abby did not want to speak with Will,the scene played that she was not over her hurt and anger over the problems the article caused her.As Will's mother and a person who has been the subject of quite a few instances of public scrutiny of her private behavior ,Sami is more likely to put her hurt and anger aside than Abby as Will's cousin.I think the writers are correct and realistic in having Sami forgive Will quickly while Abby takes longer to get to that place.

I cannot speak for anyone else. I can only speak for myself.

I don't use facebook and I had an aversion to like/dislike buttons, so I never used them. I had a strong stance about this, because of my aversion to facebook.

When I first became active here at DR, I used to quote posts and reply with emoticons or a few words.

About 8 months ago, a DR moderator PMd me to tell me to use the "like" feature instead, so that's what I started doing. But this is still (relatively) new to me.

Sometimes I click "like" because I think the post was cleverly worded.

But most of the time that I click "Like", it indicates that "I agree" with the content of what the poster said.

When I click "dislike", it means I disagree with the content of the post.

I usually venture out to say what I actually think about the topic, but I don't counter every argument

With every ten or twenty posts, I might reply to one or two, and then like/dislike several that I feel strongly about.

Some posts have half that I agree with, and half that I disagree with. I leave those alone, or I reply to the section I have an opinion about.

When I click "dislike", it's not about the person making the post. It's about the content of statements/opinions within the post. I've disliked posts made by people I consider friends, if I disagree with the particular post. For me, it's not about popularity. It's about what I think/feel about the content of the opinions.

I also click "like" or "dislike" to individual posts in the play-by-play live posts of whoever is watching the episode and posting as they watch -- if I like/dislike what the *characters* are doing within the narration.

And I've liked/disliked spoilers, based on content.

There are some days (not often but sometimes) when I'm just too tired to post. I just like or dislike -- as a way to (sort of) get my opinion out there about the topic.

As I said, this is all (relatively) new to me. I've been online for decades and discussed the soaps online for maybe 15 years on and off. But DR is the place I've learned about like/dislike -- and that was only 8 months ago. I thought I was using it in the same manner as others? If I'm not using it appropriately/correctly, please tell me.

You are speaking for me.I totally agree with what is being expressed in this post.When my post is liked/disliked I see the poster as agreeing or disagreeing with my opinion,I don't see the dislike as a personal attack,just a "shorthand" response.I sometimes like posts I absolutely disagree with because they are funny.While there are some posters I agree with mosts of the time,in two years of positing I believe I have liked one or more posts of just about everyone who posts on the site on a regular basis.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deepAbby came off as extremely bitter talking to Jordan.I actually hated Abby's attitude with Will. She was treating him like crap at his own home. If she doesn't want to be around him then why come to his house and babysit his daughter. It's as though she has an independent relationship with the daughter.
I don't have a problem with Abigail being angry with Will, but the way she was talking to him had disdainful and dismissive tone to it. She could've said "you know Will, I am still having a hard time forgiving you for what you did. I rather not talk about anything right now." But she was just looking at him with disdain and was talking to him like he was scum. This is the guy who was agonizing over his mother hurting her. And he was so angry with his mother for what she did to Abigail he wrote an expose about her. She forgave him but Abigail can't manage to even talk to him in a respectful manner in his own home. Don't come to his house if you can't even stand the sight of him.
I didn't see Abby being disrespectful to Will.She did not raise her voice nor did she use abusive language when speaking to him.Will wanted bygones to be bygones and Abby is not there yet.Even Lucas saw that because he told Will to give it time Abby will get over it.I don't see that Abby should totally abandon her relationship with Sonny or Arianna because she is currently pissed with Will.When she agreed to be Ari's godmother,she made a promise to Gabi and Arianna.I don't think she should shirk it just because she is angry with Will for now.Also she was babysitting while Will and Sonny were playing basketball with Rafe and T.She shouldn't have to kiss Will's ass or grovel to him to retain her relationship with the others who have done nothing to her.What's going on between Will and Sami is between Will and Sami.
I didn't say she should kiss his ass. They're far away from that. But I think she should be more understanding to him and forgiving. If anything, will was the one kissing her ass and not the other way around. Abigail made a huge transgression in her relationship with Will when she slept with his step-father and he didn't judge her or hold that against her. He was sympathetic to her and he even took her side. The least she could do is not disrespect him in his own home. Yelling is not the only action that conveys disrespect but the way she talked to him and how dismissive she was of him was at best cold.
Well,different characters display their anger in differently depending on how angry they are.She is not ready to be friendly with Will so why should she be a hypocrite and feign what she does not feel.She came to spend time with Ari ,her goddaughter and cousin,not to spend time with Will.She did not yell,she was not verbally abusive,and she was polite.Will wanted more,she is not ready and I don't agree that her feelings should keep pace with his feelings regardless of whether he treated her better than Sami.He makes the decision as to how he treats others and they get to decide when/whether to forgive.She should not have to forgive and forget in order to have a relationship with goddaughter/cousin or her cousin Sonny.If Will wants to say unless you're nicer to me I don't want you in my home or around my daughter I guess thats his perrogative but would make him look like a douche in my opinion.

If she doesn't want to be around him then why come to his house and babysit his daughter. It's as though she has an independent relationship with the daughter. I am beginning to not like Abigail. She's turning into another Daniel. Half of the episode was about Abigail. Parts of it was about her giving attitude and other part was about characters propping Abigail. Why is Will kissing up to her? He stood by her and fought for her even after what she did to his mother and she's looking down on him treating him like an insect in his own home. Yes, he did a stupid thing by writing that article and it inflicted some damage on her but come on, get off your Horton high horses. He sided with you against his own mother. Give the guy a brake.
This! Will and Ari are a packaged deal and imo, if she can't accept Will or forgive him then she has no business being in Ari's life. There are plenty of other women in Ari's life to help her be a well rounded child and last I looked, Ari still had a mother.
I started getting mad at Abigail's attitude when she told Will she would 'co-ordinate' visits through Sonny, I don't know why but that just irked me.
I disagree. Sonny is also Ari's father, and he is also Abigail's cousin, with whom she has been close. She doesn't have to forgive Will to remain close to Sonny and their daughter.

Besides, if she truly hated Will, she wouldn't have gone over there. That was just the kind of argument you have with someone you love when they've done something crappy to you. She wants to work through it, as does Will. Ari makes a good excuse for them to have time to hash things out. I think things would be hashed, if Will hadn't had sprung the Chad article on her. I totally understand why she doesn't trust him.

Spoilers for the week of October 6th
Although there are many contenders in Salem,Brady retains the title of biggest moron on the planet.
I am really interested in learning EJ's secret and how Chad came to know of it before Stefano.
Where Chad is concerned when did Abby become "love interest Abigail"?
EJ lays down the law to Clyde + Sami makes a shocking discovery=EJurn.
Ben might take Clyde up on the offer.He is probably sick of taking sh-t from Chad regardless of how he feels about Sonny and Chad is not likely to let up and Ben knows it.

I think Abigail is sort of in transition. She was in story with EJ and Sami and now they are setting up her next story with Ben and whatever that might involve - Ben's past, his father, Chad, etc.
Abby is actually in a unique position to move current storylines.They can hardly move Abby's relationship with Ben forward without Abby appearing on screen unless Ben has more conversations about Abby with Jordan,or Clyde,or Will,or Sonny.Abby can move Jordan's storyline by having Jordan tell Abby how she feels about her relationship twith Rafe unless we want repetitive conversations between Ben and Jordan or have Jordan talking to herself in the mirror.Abby can provide Jordan feed back slightly sympathetic to Rafe.Abby should be in scenes with Jennifer and JJ who both have storylines.Since Chad returned to Salem because of the article,Abby naturally needed to have scenes with Chad.The only scene that was gratuitous was the one where EJ walked up to her to start a conversation.Abby didn't sound bitter to me,she sounded frustrated with the stalking and repetitive conversation from EJ.He keeps stalking her all over Salem to tell her ad nauseam that he is so happy with Samanther and he cares about her so he hopes she is happy too because a woman as intelligent and beautiful as she deserves to be happy.Makes sense that Abby would tell him to fuck off and keep walking,she is probably as sick as quite a few viewers of hearing his repetitive nonsensical bullshit.
The role Abby plays is different from Daniel.Although Daniel is a surgeon who specializes in every medical condition.Daniels is given scenes with patients that could and should have been given to Kayla or Marlena.Daniel is given scenes with JJ that should go to Will or Lucas.Daniel is given law enforcement scenes that should go to Hope, Rafe,Roman,and/or Abe.Daniel is given scenes with Brady and Eric that should have been with Marlena and scenes with Nicole that should have been with Rafe.As has been pointed out Daniel has scenes with Kristin that should have been with almost anyone in Salem except Daniel.

Abby banging Benny after six months isn't so bad but they should've written a stronger build up for them. It still feels a little too soon. It probably would've been better if they had, had them commiserate over anything other than her banging EJ & whatever secret he has. Abben actually feel like a knock off her relationship with Cameron.
Abby and Ben do have a Cameron/Abby and Rafe/Jordan vibe but I am ready for a caring relationship between two people who support each other against outsiders so I like Ben and Abby and I hope Rafe and Jordan get back together.Thats my preference but I could live with Abby/Chad or Jordan/Chad.I just do not want Abby and Jordan fighting over Chad.

I thought today's show was good overall but left me really confused.
Abby and Sami both changed and Sami left the house in one outfit and showed up at the park with Kate in another one. Did she change in the car? I guess it was just a mishap on the show's part.

Ej and Sami with their children was adorable. I will miss those kiddos when they are gone(don't know if allie leaves too). Sydney never says a word...lol

Jordan & Chad-- I liked them so far but I can't figure out Chad. Is on Kate or Stefano's side or his own?

Clyde & Ej-- I don't know what is going on with those 2. Does anyone?
I just assumed Sami changed after she dropped the kids off at school.Abby changed because she was going to a job interview when she left TBD.She probably won't get it because they would likely have to spring for a new set but I hope she gets one soon and not at TBD.
In my opinion Chad is on Chad's side.
Clyde is not happy that EJ is treating him like "the help" and attempting to intimidate him.I think he is going to try to turn EJ's henchman against EJ although I actually think EJ's henchman is probably working for Stefano.

At this point, the main thing separating EJ from those "heartless bastards" is that he has never looked twice at Carrie. Austin & Lucas both married her & Rafe had an emotional affair & came thisclose to a physical affair with Carrie.
Since EJ had a physical affair with Abby that included multiple encounters then he defended Abby to Sami when she called him out for that affair,I don't see how EJ can describe Rafe as heartless for kissing Carrie and mooning over her for a few weeks,Austin for having always loved Carrie or the Lucas/Carrie phase since I don't believe he actually saw that although I could be wrong since I did not watch regularly until midway through 2009.

Ben with the Just got laid look on his face and Abigail with the I was nervous at first but I did pretty good smile on hers :roflol:
Abby's probably happy that she did not have flashbacks to EJ or call Ben EJ during her first post EJ romp.If Abby asks how was it and Ben parrots Chad and says,"You were a real pro.",I will join those throwing things at the screen.
Eeewwwwwww!!!!! :x As if this latest Abifail romp couldn't possibly get any trashier. :yuk:
I don't see them making love/having sex as trashy.Abby last had sex with EJ in February.She has known Ben for approximately six months and been dating Ben for a month or two,she likes him,and he clearly has feelings for her.Most soap couples make love/have sex under these circumstances and it is considered normal.

Thoughts on today:

* Ohmygod, baby Ari's tummy! She's so cute!
* Lumi :) It occurs to me that Lucas makes Sami tolerable because he's not afraid to call her on her crap. I know that's not a particularly new opinion, but for the last several years, we've had this revamp of Sami as the heroine. Lucas is one of the few people we have who actively calls up Sami's history, since the writers seem to forget who Sami was. I read the phrase "a little salty to cut the sweet" and I think that fits here. He gives her depth because he gives her context. Rafe and EJ can't because she was already Sami-of-the-glittery-hooha. When Lucas shows up, it's like a little nudge from the writers that they haven't forgotten Sami's dastardly history.
* I LOVED Sami's outfit, especially her shirt.
* I know this isn't how squish names work, but can Jordan/Chad please be Jordach[e]? :)

* I know boys mature and grow more slowly and it can happen with fraternal twins, but the difference between Allie and Johnny is partly heightened by the writers' choice. Johnny's height would be less of an issue if they kept him up with Allie in other ways.

Allie: Mommy, I'm learning how to solve differential equations!

Johnny:

(This is nothing against either set of kids. The show needs to figure out how they're going to age these two characters. Either keep them both youngish or let them mature in their dialogue.)
It was so weird when I saw the kids.Johnny actually looked as if he had gotten smaller.I really hope they keep Allie so Lucas has something else to do in addition to his involvement with Sonny/Will/little Ari and Kate.I really hope something developes between him and Zoe.
BTW I love Ralph Wiggum.

Ben with the Just got laid look on his face and Abigail with the I was nervous at first but I did pretty good smile on hers :roflol:
Abby's probably happy that she did not have flashbacks to EJ or call Ben EJ during her first post EJ romp.If Abby asks how was it and Ben parrots Chad and says,"You were a real pro.",I will join those throwing things at the screen.

I still want Autumn to arrive.
I prefer Sheryl to Autumn
I just want Lucas to have a love life - Autumn, Sheryl, Zoe, Jordan, just someone. Preferably someone chasing him for once. I'll take what we can get. :toetap:
I really liked Lucas and Sheryl, and I liked what I saw with Zoe. She had an edge to her that I liked. Jordan's probably going to get back together with Rafe eventually, so I'd rather not have Lucas be the rebound guy like he told Ben. I doubt we'll ever see Autumn.
I agree about Autumn but it would be nice to have a woman pursing Lucas.I was okay with Lucas and Sheryl but Zoe seemed to have more of a spark and not quite as goody goody as Sheryl.I like Lucas better with feisty Zoe who put him in his place.I think if Kate tried to interfere in a relationship between Lucas and Zoe,Zoe could hold her own and then some.
