Hey, su0000, can anyone believe this–I agree with you for a THIRD TIME on this blog–must be a charm–lol!

With one caveat–not because of the writing–but because she is Dee Wallace!

Agree 100% Su, Dee Wallace for the win! She was fantastic in her short stint on GH. It was a shame they made the decision to kill off Patricia so quickly. I understand it was necessary for the story they wanted to tell, shoe horning “Val Chops” as Shay calls her into the show, lol. But I thought there was so much untapped potential story there if Patricia had lived.

Thanks for the shoutout, Dan! Alas, I’m not allowed to use my favorite character monikers anymore, but I’m so glad they’ve not been completely forgotten!…LOL. As for Dee Wallace, you are so right! She was phenomenal as Patricia and richly deserves the Emmy for her far-too-brief portrayal, even if I haven’t forgiven her character for foisting her obstinate daughter on the canvas to nearly destroy the Falconeri’s marriage. ‘Twould have been far better to have kept her longer to explore the Spencer family history, than to leave Val orphaned(?), bereft and lusting after her cousin’s husband!

for ALL the hoopla still being felt… resonating….

LOL… will he or won’t he …. show up… and “supplant” with, his 9th Oscar

Anthony Geary… COULD very well – be – the MOST CELEBRATED ACTOR

any way: for ALL the oohing and aweing of the 50th black and white gala premiere… meh?

Dee Wallace Stone was the most interesting part

Sentimental choice …Dee Wallace. But Obba and Anna were excellent.

I’m a little confused on the eligibility for this category. Anna Maria and Obba have been in several episodes for B&B and I would classify them as recurring rather than guest stars. Anyone know what the rules are for this category? Thanks.

Rose

Mo… Good question. I would also include Ray Wise as Ian Ward in Y&R. How would he fit?

Patrick

They are now recurring. During 2015 they were guest stars.

Dee Wallace is by far the best. I thought a very close second was Obba Babatunde. All of them we’re good but I thought these two we’re the best.

Being completely objective here (I don’t watch any of the surviving soaps regularly): It’s definitely Obba Babatunde. It’s great to see Frank Runyeon again (loved him as Steve Andropolous on “As the World Turns”). And I adore Anna Maria Horsford (not only did I love her on “Amen” and “The Wayans Brothers,” but also as Holly Thorpe’s cellmate Clara Jones on “Guiding Light” in the late 1970s). She’s my sentimental favorite. But Babatunde’s performance towers above the rest. Dee Wallace was wooden, and I never took anything from “Days of Our Lives” seriously since the 1970s.

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
