Sweeney, who lost in her bid to win last night in her first ever Daytime Emmy for Lead Actress in her first nomination in almost 22 years playing the role of Sami Brady DiMera, posted the news of her return to the Salem canvas with a picture of her with a DAYS script.

Ali related: ” Guess what?! I get to be a part of celebrating #days50 !!! So thrilled!!!”  Just when Sweeney’s actual return date to the airwaves is has not been announced, but the series is taping episodes that look to be airing in late August/early September at this point in time, since DAYS tapes so far ahead.

It’ll be nice to see Sami again! I wish Ali would have won the Emmy, but if she or Peggy McCay couldn’t, I’m glad Maura did!

I hope the writing is good and they DONT age her children!!!! And there needs to be a reveal that EJ is alive!! The Hollywood exit was very poorly written and contrived…..

That’s a good point, richard. One never knows….perhaps there will be a reveal that EJ is alive. There should be a happy ending for Sami and EJ.

What a shocker!
I mean, really, who didn’t know she’d only be gone for two New York minutes?
I think she just left only to come back in order to garner attention.
But really, Miss Sweeney, how can we miss you if you won’t go away?

LOL, Harry….I second that!

she needs to come back permanently or that show will be history. i am not a huge fan of hers but thats the truth it is so dull without her and EJ!

Her scenes won’t air until September? This is April. Honestly, Days Of Our Lives tapes too far in advance. Are we expected to be excited about something that won’t be seen for close to 6 months?

DAYS’ Christie Clark Shares Coronavirus Health Update

Days of our Lives fans love her as as Carrie Brady, and are often very happy when they find out Christie Clark is back for a visit taping episodes of the NBC soap opera.  But that’s not what’s happening right now.  Right now, we need Christie to get all her strength back.

Clark shared via her Instagram today a health update on her battle with the coronavirus that hit both her and her husband while they have been living in the United Kingdom.

Christie expressed: “Oh my goodness, just starting to feel ok on this end. My husband Tom and I have had coronavirus fairly bad. Not as bad as some, no hospital needed. Hope your all well! I’m sure at this stage you all know of someone with it? When you get it, you can’t call the grandparents for help, cause they will get sick. We know about 10 people in our little circle that have had it. Like clockwork, Day 7,8,&9 were tricky and haven’t been able to taste food for a while. So excited to be in the land of the living again & start exercising…soon. Thanks for all the love. Stay safe!”

Send your well-wishes to Christie and Tom as they are on currently getting stronger and recovering from the virus via the comment section below.
