Carly Frei’s Career
After graduating from Andover High School in 2014, Carly Frei attended the College of Charleston in South Carolina. She would earn her degree in communications and media studies in 2018, but had already embarked on an entrepreneurial path by then.
When Frei was a 19-year-old college student, she started Glow Boss from her campus room. In an interview with Shoutout LA, she shared that she’d always loved to get a healthy, glowing tan and could never do it naturally. Spray tans were her best friend and Frei found a way to spread that love.
That’s how her organic mobile spray tan service, Glow Boss, began. In the first year of business, she had done 300 tans. The popularity of her brand reached other students who wanted to provide the same service on their college campuses under Frei’s umbrella. One of the things she says she loves about her job is that several college students earn through her franchises and gain experience.
And it’s led to Frei’s trademarked brand, Glow Boss, operating in college campuses across the country. Frei knew that starting and growing a business would come with many risks, but she was encouraged and advised by her parents who are experienced entrepreneurs.
Carly Frei and Conner Floyd’s Relationship
Carly Frei recently moved to Los Angeles, California, where she is growing Glow Boss. There, she met and began dating actor Conner Floyd.
The couple made their relationship Instagram official in September 2021 with posts on their respective profiles. Floyd already has the Frei family seal of approval. Not only is sister Chelsea hyping the couple on social media, but Carly’s mom Lauren is also ecstatic about Floyd’s Y&R debut.
What Happened to Chase on The Young and the Restless?
Y&R character Phillip Chancellor IV, aka Chance, was last portrayed by actor Donny Boaz. When Boaz was sidelined by COVID-19 last year, Justin Gaston briefly filled in for him.
Shortly after Boaz returned, he announced that he had been abruptly let go from the show in early 2021. The fate and storyline of Chance were left up in the air. The reason for the actor’s departure was not publicized, either.
Chance and his wife, Abby, were last coping with the revelation that Abby couldn’t get conceive. They were considering surrogacy before Chance suddenly disappeared on a secret mission. The only consolation amid Chance’s exit came from Boaz stating that there’s no intention to kill off the character.
Now, several months later, Chance has been recast with Conner Floyd. He made his Y&R debut at the end of November 2021.
Floyd’s debut was marked with a reunion between Chance and Abby. In the episode, Chance explains why he faked his death but refuses to return to Genoa City until he can bring his colleagues’ killers to justice.
