On last night’s Dancing with the Stars, Pretty Little Liars star Brant Daugherty received the highest score of the night, a 27 from the judges for he and his dance partner, Peta Murgatroyd!

The duo danced the Quickstep to a flapper remix version of  Beyonce’s Crazy in Love for Hollywood Night.  In it, Brant played the matinee idol to perfection and he emerged as one of the contenders for the Mirror Ball trophy, if fans vote for him!

Shockingly at the end of the night, during the live elimination from last week’s viewers vote combined with the judges score from last night, Brant was in the bottom three! Luckily, he wound up being safe!

But, Brant was not safe last week when he was actually mugged at gunpoint on his way home from the live Dancing with the Stars taping!  A detail that was revealed along with the fact that Brant had torn a ligament in his foot during the video segment of the duos rehearsals, before Brant and Peta took the stage last night.

Brant opened up to PEOPLE backstage after DWTS with the details on the mugging incident:  “After the show I got dropped off and was walking up to my apartment building and a man followed me up with a gun and told me to give him my stuff. It was a complete random occurrence of events and it led up to one of the worst nights of my life – after having such a great night last week on the dance floor.”  Daugherty also related that his mugger made off with a pair of workout pants, two T-shirts, dance shoes, a toothbrush and his cell phone – making it impossible for him to contact the police immediately.

Peta Murgatroyd also revealed how Brant was of course, rattled by the situation during their rehearsal after the incident:
“He came in the next morning … and he was so flustered and emotional. I was like, ‘Oh my Lord, he’s had the worst time.'”

With a horrific week, Daugherty pulled off what the judges deemed as the best dance of the night!  Watch his DWTS performance from last night below and let you know what you thought of it? Are you rooting Brant on now more than ever knowing the hell he had gone through, almost facing elimination, and dancing his way hopefully into the hearts of the voting public?  Weigh-in!

At least he still has his life. Material possessions can be replaced. Good luck to him.

I am so sorry for anyone who have gone thru that experience. I am not a big fan of DWTS but I try to tune in for his performances, he is a great dancer. I hope this show brings him some solid exposure to casting directors and producers, he has what it takes to be a major film and television actor.

Days of our Lives Reveals Newcomers Cherie Jimenez and Al Calderon

On the official Days of our Lives Instagram account, a photo has appeared featuring new additions to Salem, Cherie Jimenez and Al Calderon.  The Peacock streaming soap opera is not offering up just who they are playing.

However, the smart money seems to be that Jimenez is a recast Gabi Hernandez and Calderon potentially her brother, Dario Hernandez, since the two actors are seen standing in Rafe’s (Galen Gering) kitchen.

In story, Gabi has been stuck in prison for “murdering” Li Shin. Looks like the character will be brought back on to the canvas, but will Gabi reunite with Stefan (Brandon Barash)?

If Calderon proves to be Dario that character has been off the show since 2017, when soap vet Jordi Vilasuso played the part. Dario departed Salem to avoid getting locked up in the slammer and in the process granted Abigail a divorce while in hiding.

If Jimenez looks familiar, she has been featured in roles on Pretty Little Liars,The Newsroom, NCIS, Maya and Breaking Tradition. Calderon has appeared in Walking Dead: World Beyond, and a few episodes of the soapy, The Haves and the Have Nots.

As for Camila Banus, her last day on the DAYS set was back on April 28, 2023, when she revealed she was exiting the role of Gabi, a role she made soap-famous for 13 years.

Do you think Cherie and Al are the new Gabi and Dario? If not, who do you think they are playing? Weigh-in below.

Melissa Reeves Returns to Days of our Lives

Longtime Days of our Lives star, Melissa Reeves, who has not filmed episodes with the Peacock streaming episode since 2021, is reportedly back on set and shooting story as Jennifer Horton. Reeves began her run as Jennifer back in 1985.

Melissa is taping the Thanksgiving episodes, but will also be a part of the Doug Williams memorial in honor her beloved former castmate Bill Hayes, who passed away in January at the age of 98.

According to TV Insider, Melissa had one concern in returning, in that, the role has been most recently been played by Cady McClain in her absence. Reeves expressed, “My one thing was, ‘I’m not taking this away from Cady.’ If this is Cady’s thing and she loves being here and she really loves playing this part, I don’t want to take it away from her. I’m so good either way.”

Previously, Melissa had moved to Tennessee full-time with her husband, Scott Reeves (ex-Y&R, GH, DAYS). Speaking on being back to pay tribute to Bill Hayes, Reeves shared, “I heard about Bill, which was just devastating for all of us. I was like, ‘I wonder if they’re going to do tribute shows.’”

For decades, Reeves along with Matthew Ashford (Jack) formed the Salem supercouple of Jack and Jennifer. She related that she reached out to Ashford who said to her, “Would you ever think about going back?’ to which she replied, ‘Matt, I think about Days all the time.’ Melissa added, “So I said, ‘Matt, you know if they called, I would say yes, but I haven’t heard anything.’”

Being a part of the tribute to Bill Hayes and to say goodbye to his beloved character of Doug Williams, has special significance for Melissa. She mentioned she weeped, recalling, “Of course I cried because he’s such an incredible man, but what an incredible legacy he has left behind as a man, as a father, as a grandfather, as a husband.“

So, looking forward to seeing Melissa Reeves reprise the role of Jennifer Rose Horton later this year as we say goodbye to Doug Williams and honor Bill Hayes? Comment below.
