Mary Beth is just gracious, adorable, classy and so much fun. I love that she is Kayla’s biggest fan and only ever has positive thoughts to share about the shows and people she works with. It’s obvious why she’s daytime’s sweetness <3 Thanks for posting this interview 🙂

I can only applaud those comments. So glad that she is always upbeat and never bashes or disparages daytime–as she said, she’s grateful; since 5 she always wanted to act–and is obviously in love with the profession whenever, where ever she can do it. She comes off as very “real,” someone everyone wants to be around–could see her as a good neighbor, sharing her flowers and veggies from her garden–as well as her recipes. She seems to have life in perspective. Her life is full and well rounded. Bully for her! Many more years of fulfillment for her. Cheers, Mary… Read more »

I said I thought she deserved to win–as well as Finola–even called for a tie between them. 🙂

Further commenting on the Emmys and daytime drama in general: After Mary Beth won–and I heard her talking in another interview about Kayla and Patch on the run and getting to fall in love all over again, I went on youtube and watched those scenes–the “Lady in Red” dream sequence when Kayla can’t hear and she and Patch are dancing and she thinks back to dancing in that sparkling red dress with him, the “hot springs” scene, and I thought what a shame that the writers choose (or do not know how) not to write any love scenes today–the scenes… Read more »

Congrats to both. They have been around so long and they certainly worked for it. I am sorry it wasn’t aired because these two I would have been thrilled to see them accept the Emmy. Tyler and Mary Beth both seem to be real people, and what a treat to not have to see the same old Same old winners. I also remember them both on GH.

I was delighted when Mary Beth won. She has long been a favorite of mine, not simply because of Kayla, but because of how she is. She’s a wonderful example of grace. Her character was basically ignored by Days for four years. Kayla was never given a story of her own in all that time. Despite watching everyone else get stories of their own, whether they were on contract or recurring, she didn’t complain. She just resolved to do her best with what she was given, little though it was. This year, she was given an opportunity. She did some… Read more »

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
