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!!
