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!

Yeah, Salem isn’t the same without Sami.

It hasnt been the same with several characters missing: Sami, Ej, Bo, Lexi…and many others…Days needs Bill Horton(Jerry Ver Dorn)…Laura(Erika Slezak)…Steve Olson(Stephan Schnetzer)…Susan Martin(Denise Alexander) as Anne’s mother…Peter Blake(James Depaiva)…also Valerie Grant(Debbie Morgan)…and recasts of David Banning, Bo Brady and Robin Strasser as either Vivian or Lee Dumonde plus Shawn, Belle, John and Lexi…plus Doug(Bill Hayes) and Julie(Susan Seaforth) all for short story arc guest appearances for Days 50th anaversary!!!

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 Alison made a mistake by leaving the show, she should return and ask for a lighter work schedule (less air time) to have time for herself, her family and her other interests. I think she has earned the right to ask for an adjustment to her screen time.

There is no shame in saying you made a mistake in leaving. The bigger mistake would be to continue to be miserable. Life is too short for that. It is a blessing to work with people who you love and who love you. If they are a big part of your life and what makes you happy,, don’t waste time being separated from them. Go back, and be happy!

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.

Susan

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 destroying Dimera enterprises and ruining it’s reputation and be back in time to save her family and back in time to save Dimera Enterprises before more SEC trouble ensues. What about her kids with EJ excuse me they need a dad and Lucas can help with that and what about her kids’ relatives they want to see them too it’s not fair for equal shares that Sami is making this HUGE MISTAKE and that Alison left the show to make the show all freaky Friday and make it all Lauren Koslow pardon my French.. Days is also drab without Sami.. Alison hurry and come back soon.. I miss Sami’s Charisma and Hijinks’.

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.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?
