It didnt play for me…Sami kidnapping baby Belle or going after Austin and with Lucas was some of my favorite Sami moments)…Meanwhile, i wanted Sami and Nicole to get in a big mud fight before Sami leaves(kind of like in that fight scene with grapes in ‘I Love Lucy’)…but when was the last time in ever rain in Salem to create some mud…did it even snow?

Fun interview. Paolo has an easy going and natural style. Thoughtful to present Alison with the award. Alison deserves all the kudos she gets. Going to MISS her on DOOL. Her book does seem like a fun summer read, too. 🙂

Watching DOOL this week, I couldn’t help but think why EJ Dimera would be attracted to or with Sami Brady. I understand that a lot of viewers consider EJami a supercouple; but, I just don’t see it. It’s nothing against the actress. I just find Sami to be very immature. I’m supposed to buy that she is a mother of 4, a grandmother of 1, in-charge of a successful business, while she is running around town like a teenager demanding Abigail help her with her wedding, fighting with Kate, and screaching the rest of the time?

She’s demanding Abby’s help in order to make Abby squirm. Sami knows about the affair!

Before I tuned in to DAYS, I actually got to meet her in person doing a post production gig for “The Biggest Loser about 5 years ago.

She is a sweet and charming woman..So then i watch her onscreen and its like WOW, who is this crazy girl, LOL.

She might not have many awards to show for, but she is a damn good actress who completely transforms when she plays Sammy..A daytime legend who will be sorely missed on the show!!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.
