Alison Sweeney will appear on the Tuesday December 16th episode of the syndicated talker, The Steve Harvey Show (Check local listings or go to http://www.steveharveytv.com/ for time and channel).  During her segments, Alison will discuss her exit from Days of our Lives after nearly 22 years playing Sami Brady, and her hosting chores on Biggest Loser.

When discussing her exit from Salem, while referencing that she has been back to direct on the long-running NBC soap opera, Sweeney admits it’s been hard being away from everyone every day on the set.

Ali related,  “It was really hard to leave.  Dee (Deidre Hall) has played my mom on the show for 22 years.  It’s really hard not to be there every day … I miss them … it’s hard to be away from them.”

Sweeney will also discuss her holiday traditions at home, including her children’s love for “Elf on the Shelf,” as well as tips for keeping your diet on track for the upcoming holiday season.   Sweeney will chat with Harvey about her latest novel, “Scared Scriptless,” bringing copies of the book for the entire studio audience.  In addition, Harvey and Sweeney will play a Christmas-themed word game, trying to beat the clock with a gift at stake for the studio audience!

Do you miss Alison as Sami on DAYS? Do you think the series is not the same without her? Watch a clip from tomorrow’s Steve Harvey Show where she discusses her departure! Then,  let us know!

If it’s that hard not being in Salem everyday, there’s a simple remedy: RETURN!

Yes, miss Sami. Days has yet to come up with a satisfactory replacement or story.

“That” I will be watching! I miss her so much. I stopped watching Day Of Our Lives because she left. I love you Sammy and EJ!

I haven’t stopped watching it because they left, but I have thought about it.

I don’t like Eve at all, my opinion is she is a witch and very manipulative.

Will always love Sami/Ali, but I’ve been enjoying the show so much more with Sami nd EJ gone. Their story just seemed to go round in endless circles. The show feels fresher now.

No. I don’t miss Sami on Days. The stories airing now are very interesting, especially the Eric-Serena story (and the simultaneous Nicole-Daniel story). It was nice to see Marlena happy about Eric’s potential love life for a change. Don’t know how this will play out relative to Nicole, but looking forward to watching! However, I am deeply sympathetic to Alison’s feelings about being out of Salem as Sami. I have suspected all along that rather than an exit, maybe what she needed was a long vacation and an adjustment to her screen time to give her more time off. If… Read more »

I miss Samir and look forward to her anniversary return. That said, I’m enjoying the current storylines on DOOL.

I didn’t stop recording/watching DOOL because Ali left. I stopped because I found myself a bored viewer without Eileen Davidson. Also, I wasn’t a fan of the newbies-Paige, Eve (as much as I like Kassie DePaiva) and I can no longer watch “The Theresa Show.” It’s too bad, because two years ago-I absolutely loved it when Kristen returned to town!

I have to agree that I am getting tired of Theresa drama, it seems to have run its course, let’s move and send her back to California.

No, no, and no. I do not miss Sami; neither do family and friends. None of us want to see her return. NEVER!

Well you must not appreciate good talent when you see it, because she’s outstanding.

I wish Alison would come back to DAYS and reprise the role as Sami. Can’t Days execs see that Will needs her to help with Ari and help him with Sonny, also Lucas needs a woman and I still think they are good or each other and excuse me for saying this. What is more than important than Salem and important than working at Dimera Enterprises ?! I do not think that he EJami story is too dramatic to be made into a movie.. I hope that Days stops mucking about and puts Sami back in to stop Chad from… Read more »

I have watched days of our lives for years, and have loved Sami wheather she was good or bad.

I have heard she’s coming back to direct, but I want her back in the show, she’s a great actress.

Days has been so much easier to watch now that the Ejami crapfest is no longer a part of it.
I do love Ali, but was so weary of that over done snooze of a story between Sami and EJ. Looking forward to see what the future holds for Salem, and I do hope Ali makes it back for some cameos.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

James Scott Comments: “I Will Never. Never. Never. Never. Never, Go Back to Hollywood Let Alone DOOL”

Those hoping that finally James Scott would return to his signature daytime soap role of EJ DiMera on Days of our Lives, now that Alison Sweeney is on her way back to the show this fall for a longer run as Sami, can count those hopes now dashed and for good.

In a post on his Instagram account for his meditation and contemplations Sunday morning Zoom series and website, Scott posed with Deepak Chopra.  When a fans posted a comment in the IG account how they miss him on DAYS and to come back with Sami, James replied, “Hi – thanks for joining me here. Please know that I will never. Never. Never. Never. Never. Go back to Hollywood let alone DOOL. There is notbing interesting there for me. J”

Fan favorite James Scott, who has been MIA from the acting profession for awhile now is running The Whisper Within – and as detailed by the website, Scott explains how he left acting to be more involved with meditation and helping others find inner-peace – “In 2014, after a successful career in the entertainment industry, I found myself with everything and nothing.  I had money, celebrity, and status and the grief to match it. I had worked tirelessly for the better part of two decades to attain wealth and validation, yet no external thing could touch the emptiness I felt and the worthlessness I experienced.  I knew that something unknown wished to be known—something I could feel only through its apparent absence. In my despair and depression, I faced a simple choice: to change my lived experience or to end it. One felt impossible; the other easy I had already spent so much time reading self-help books, attending workshops and retreats, drinking concoctions with shamans, exploring tantra and abstaining from sex all together, dancing and singing, and many more practices, which had done little or nothing to abate the loneliness.

 

Desperate and in despair, still seeking, still suffering, I found my way to an Indian meditation center. I went for a week and stayed for a year. It was there in my own reflection that I found the teacher I had been seeking silently waiting to be known. At first, there was rage and anger, but eventually the intensity of the fire burned low and sadness took its place. I cried and cried until I cried myself empty and something new arose: beneath it all, I discovered a newfound peace. Like a fragrance arising from deep within, I heard the sound of the silence that can never be spoken: the eternal wisdom of the whisper within.  To live from this place is my practice and my path. To inspire others to do the same is my purpose.”

So, what do you think about James’ comments and path that he has now gone down for his life?  Do you think its time for DAYS to finally re-cast EJ? Comment below.
