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

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?

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.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

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 . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.

James Scott Comments: “I Will Never. Never. Never. Never. Never, Go Back to Hollywood Let Alone DOOL”

Those hoping that finally James Scott would return to his signature daytime soap role of EJ DiMera on Days of our Lives, now that Alison Sweeney is on her way back to the show this fall for a longer run as Sami, can count those hopes now dashed and for good.

In a post on his Instagram account for his meditation and contemplations Sunday morning Zoom series and website, Scott posed with Deepak Chopra.  When a fans posted a comment in the IG account how they miss him on DAYS and to come back with Sami, James replied, “Hi – thanks for joining me here. Please know that I will never. Never. Never. Never. Never. Go back to Hollywood let alone DOOL. There is notbing interesting there for me. J”

Fan favorite James Scott, who has been MIA from the acting profession for awhile now is running The Whisper Within – and as detailed by the website, Scott explains how he left acting to be more involved with meditation and helping others find inner-peace – “In 2014, after a successful career in the entertainment industry, I found myself with everything and nothing.  I had money, celebrity, and status and the grief to match it. I had worked tirelessly for the better part of two decades to attain wealth and validation, yet no external thing could touch the emptiness I felt and the worthlessness I experienced.  I knew that something unknown wished to be known—something I could feel only through its apparent absence. In my despair and depression, I faced a simple choice: to change my lived experience or to end it. One felt impossible; the other easy I had already spent so much time reading self-help books, attending workshops and retreats, drinking concoctions with shamans, exploring tantra and abstaining from sex all together, dancing and singing, and many more practices, which had done little or nothing to abate the loneliness.

 

Desperate and in despair, still seeking, still suffering, I found my way to an Indian meditation center. I went for a week and stayed for a year. It was there in my own reflection that I found the teacher I had been seeking silently waiting to be known. At first, there was rage and anger, but eventually the intensity of the fire burned low and sadness took its place. I cried and cried until I cried myself empty and something new arose: beneath it all, I discovered a newfound peace. Like a fragrance arising from deep within, I heard the sound of the silence that can never be spoken: the eternal wisdom of the whisper within.  To live from this place is my practice and my path. To inspire others to do the same is my purpose.”

So, what do you think about James’ comments and path that he has now gone down for his life?  Do you think its time for DAYS to finally re-cast EJ? Comment below.
