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.

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
