Delighted so far. I hope they continue to add more daytime soap opera stars; they are who we tune in to see, not someone from some obscure night time cable program.

Presenters are not a big deal to me. I am just happy for the person asked to present. What would be interesting is to have actors from each soap who are seated at the same table to share on camera one topic they are chatting about between presentations/commercials and have the fans watching respond to the conversation via twitter. Make it more intimate between the Daytime stars and fans…in real time. By the way, the actors pick the topic.

If some of the responses from the fans are funny, the actors and the fans can share a laugh together in real time!

I agree! You have an excellent idea on how to make the Daytime Emmy Awards show much more intimate between the Daytime stars and their fans… in real time! I have always wondered what the soap stars talked about between the presentations and the commercials. So this would be a great way for the fans watching to find out and give their responses on the selected topic!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Will Learns He Has A Brain Tumor; What Next For WilSon?

On Days of our Lives, Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) have been through the wringer.  Just like any power couple in “soapdom” they are constantly pulled apart by circumstances that drives distance between them, or prevents them from being happily reunited.  But then, isn’t that was soaps are all about … or, do these boys deserve a bit of peace and quiet?

On Wednesday’s episode of the NBC daytime drama series, Rex (Kyle Lowder) and Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) drop the bomb on WilSon.  Sadly, Will has a small brain tumor, although believed to be benign, it is is in a section of his frontal lobe that makes it most likely inoperable.

Will asks if that explains his headaches and why he has been passing out, and Rex confirms that is the cause.  He also says the tumor is likely benign, because the larger ones are usually cancerous.  The next step is to do a biopsy.  Rex advises Will to not exercise, drive, work, and to avoid stress right now.

Later at the Kiriakis mansion, Will Google’s brain tumor’s on the internet and is emotionally overcome with what it says.  In tears and looking very sad, Sonny comes on to the scene to comfort Will, but Sonny is looking concerned himself, trying to put on a brave front for Will.  Then, Sonny and Will admit they are frightened for what’s ahead, but Sonny says they must try to stay positive.  Will cries.

These scenes were nicely played by Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith, who always bring it in their scenes.

Look for more drama ahead for the duo and their on-screen families as Will deals with this new health crisis.

So, what does Will’s tumor mean for the future of WilSon?  What do you think will happen next? Are you upset that Will has this diagnosis? Do you want the duo to finally have some down time from all the drama, especially after getting Leo Stark (Greg Rikart) out of their lives?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
