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 Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
