I had hopes that we hadn’t seen the last of Nicole when she left Salenm.

Nicole found the real Brady who was somehow switched at birth…thats the role Kyle will be playing…however, current Brady is also the real Brady when dna is performed and Kyles Brady has the same dna results…they are fraternal twins and Kyle’s Brady was stolen at birth..lol…ok, just make him Philip

Good my girl is back

Yeayyyy!!!! So happy to see Nicole back.
What will the newly self-appointed morally-conscientious good guy Brady do?? What will Eve do?
Does she know that he threatened Nicole?…..that he viciously drove her out of town because he couldn’t handle the fact that she chose Eric over him? How dare she?? How dare any woman choose another guy?!?! Ugh!!
What of Miss Purity-Jen, herself? Oh, me, oh, my……the caca will hit the fan in more ways than one…..this I ‘gotta’ see!! Can’t wait. So exciting!!

ONE: I truly believe that Ron Carlivati can perform miracles. I still think it was a VERY GOOD TIME for Ari Zucker to have left. she ran thru all the men… especially the three muskateers… Eric / Brady / Daniel. no matter how “bonded” we are to her character .. (plus it didn’t help that she didn’t have any woman friends…. dag ! just Jennifer ? she has no ties here.) LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE… with all due respect… I do not want her to be DAYS new leading lady. FOCUS ON THE DONOVAN WOMEN. there were so many bleak years.. that to see Nicole and Sami… out of the scenery… is just not missed. WITH the triple crown in our pockets… I imagine most will believe.. why not, she’s talented? CHANNEL NEW ENERGY. everything on the show is gusto muchachos.

Celia
Celia

LOL, Patrick…..I think you have a point there. Nicole left at a very opportune time……precious time to have given her wisdom in dealing with HER life issues—never mind the men.
Will Holly be sorased?
….”.. ran through all the men….” :DOUBLE LOL. Oh, my Patrick…..except for Alice Horton, Mary Williams, and Mona Kane ( as per my Gran—were there more?); what woman, on any soap, hasn’t tangoed with the football team, and beyond?
Honestly? I’d rather have Nicole than Eve. For some reason, which I cannot pinpoint, Eve does not strike me soooo sincere. Perhaps, we have not seen moments of “self-illumination” with Eve as we have seen with Nicole. Eve still appears shifty to me, while Nicole stole my heart…..even after her misdeeds.
That is the crux of the matter, for me, Patrick. Every one of us sees things through different eyes…..we attach ourselves to certain spoken expressions that move us, where the same words do nothing for someone else.
I have loved Kassie since forever…prayed for her during her dark days with her health—but, Eve is not doing it for me. She has become a superfluous character…..
I pray the PTB don’t get the ‘bright’ idea of sticking Theresa and JJ together. Nah….big mistake. Too sedate. JJ has changed drastically….while I appreciate characters finding their soul and become better beings, I, vehemently, protest ‘fully’ altered, mollified personae.
Now, look at Xander…..so much potential. He and Theresa? Fire!!
Make him a sorta-kinda good guy; but, keep his bad-boy edge.
I can taste it……

Patrick
Patrick

I don’t know… retread.. even if it’s Eric N Nicole. ???? after ALL the years of hit and miss… it doesn’t seem to me like it’s worth it. SEARCH @DAYS… take the time to find a NEW LEADING LADY for Greg VAughan…. ALL of DAYS fans know their long history… I’m not feeling this… no bells and whistles for her return. it’s always about men and sex… with nothing else… mind you.. if this includes Greg Vaughan.. then sure. outside of giving her a job … which usually doesn’t go any where. @DAYS has done a stupendous job of RETURNS. what is it that we don’t already know about Nicole

Patrick
Patrick

perhaps watching her be a mother will be a new attribute. a tired dance now and then with Eric ? he’s on a roll… big time… w/ that emmy win. heck.. ME I’ve grown used to Jenny Bear. because every thing about the show is going so swimmingly and on track

I still say… Jade Harlow… sexed out !

Celia
Celia

Hey, again, Patrick…..yes, give Nicole time to settle herself within.
Eric and she were hot….granted. Perhaps, she and Xander? Other than Theresa, Nicole and Xander did have a bout with sexual tension….remember that? In all the hate-spewing between them, there was something there.
Eric is just lost in a placid sea of perpetual inertia….nothin’ happenin’ with Miss Jennie …….she strikes me as one of those women who circles sex days on a calendar. HaHa….no spontaneity—-fluffy pillows; pristine, ironed, white sheets….rose petals everywhere….

Patrick

hilarious, Jenny Bear – oy she was never better for that belly laugh whenst she spilled the bottle and caught up. well , you know what I mean… the story never goes full throttle on some characters.. writers write to give character story.. and bam… it’s all over in a whiff… TAKE @GH Carly in Pentonville. argh! was Jason crying when they last spoke. the intimacy was their. oy! Sonny! so far she’s been loud obnoxious and abrasive.. so insulting to the audience… that she’s this spelled out. for a lauded actress till the end of time… oy I will bell and whistle FV choices. ACT

anyway… OK like @GH Finn… nary a sign of his self-loathing – that syringe with yellow syrup shoulda meant some thing. you’ve got to hand it to Frank Valentini… he listens not to the “fans” . fleshing out Michael Easton… STILL , after 6 years.

@DAYS

Jenny Bear does in fact circle her calendar for nakedness….

I’ll make her donuts

TRUTH: I cried… When Nicole left with daughter in toe. WANTING for Nicole to understand herself. OY… Hello @SZima
“…
Nicole will hopefully be over her ‘weepy’ stage and back to her old spunky self ” here ye here ye

in order for her return to mean something.. @DAYS has got to hire back alive.. her mother Fay Walker.. thereby giving her a dance with ; Abe, Roman, John, Victor…

Nicole.. who has no support system… or family.. or friends.. always looks forlorn, like shes about to cave in on herself. GIVE HER A SOUNDING BOARD. a life line.. for someone who ??? is on board to fully support.. or give Nicole some stability.. regardless of her choice in men. so she became so weepy… with no SNAP. DRIVE my Nicole.

so their.. really… alas,,, she’s like a Kristen.. at least Kristen had root.. in the DiMera. Ari walker is lauded . give this actress a foundation.. hopfully the actress who plays Fay Walker will do recurring… if @DAYS is going to take this act back. PLEASE for the love of god… give her , her mother back.

love to see Nicole again. Just as long as the time traveling egg mutant (or his literally heartless ghost) doesn’t come with her.

Love, love, live here! Now if Sammi and EJ would just return

I truly think.. James Scott.. had just had it… with the hit and run… WRITERS of ole’

would he return… @Ron Carlivati helming the DRIVE?

I believe so.. yet his person.. seems to have that spirituality and mind wander of better things to keep his mind

he’s thee consummate… EJ with Peter Blake.. BOTH had ALL thee HOT ME OUT. I TRULY WISH Jason Brooks would return

YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

I am hoping this is not a short-term return. I want Arianne to be returning for the long haul. I know she said last year she didn’t want to be a regular (a.k.a. contract), but maybe she has changed her mind? If not, am hoping another soap picks her up, then!

Maybe she is returning on a recurring basis? Anyone know yet?

I’ll be glad to see her!
Interesting observation about this news…the comments on this site are all positive, while the comments on another site are all negative!
Anyway, Nicole will hopefully be over her ‘weepy’ stage and back to her old spunky self, ready to give that a$$ Brady the ‘what for’!

Damien

Thank u days for making this happen!.. #ericole needs a epic reunion and both actors deserve a kick ass story. Cant wait. A.Z. and G.V. have the best chemistry and they melt my screen! Watch out Brady…

Celia

I like what you say, Damien…..however, Eric has been domesticated…..Nicole should relax, for the time being…..see where things go…
Will Nicole and Eric be able to recapture their dizzying romance? Can they still “melt my screen”? LOL.
I would love for things to happen your way….oh, what fun it would be watching Miss Jennie develop a temper—does she have one?
I guess she does. Mama bear did ‘claw’ Eve over her son.
Let’s see if she can fight for her man.
Didn’t she give Daniel up to Nicole without a fight? Hmmmm. It’s a vicious circle, my friend.

Anything that breaks up Jen-Eric is a win in my book.

i’m excited that at least.. @DAYS , RC, ARE addressing … the coupling of Eric and Jenn ; Hope and Rafe. boy, are both these pairs tired doozy. how can two of the hottest men.. be paired with staid, time to make the donuts, keep to yourself.. you are not hot enough; for Eric and Rafe. simply put

the TRUTH

I don’t care much for DAYS OF OUR LIVES, which over the years has felt like a Nickelodeon kid’s production. I appreciate Ron and his creative brilliance. I also ADORE Arianne Zucker. She is the dark horse of this legendary soap opera. Her presence had been greatly missed. I hope she stays for a long time.

Marci Miller Final DAYS Episode Airs Today As She Shares Heartfelt Goodbye: “Thanks For The Sweet Ride, Abby”

In two years time, Marci Miller became a household name in the daytime arena as one of the brightest talents to grace the soap opera genre in a very long time.

Now today on Monday November 19th, viewers of Days of our Lives are watching her final episode as she wraps up her run as Abigail Deveraux on the NBC soap opera.

And what a run it was! Earning her a Daytime Emmy nomination for Lead Actress this year, and a possible nomination next year, Miller was heralded for her gut-wrenching performances in the DID storyline (Dissociative Identity Disorder) where she played Abby’s alters, Dr. Laura and Gabby.  Not to mention her complex love story with Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn).

On key episodes today, Miller’s Abby goes toe to toe with a vindictive Gabi (Camila Banus) who gloats how Abby ended up back in a sanitarium … thanks to her!

Miller made the decision to leave DAYS and pursue a career in feature film and primetime TV roles

In an Instagram post, Miller shared:”This is a picture of me 2 yrs ago, painting my nails (and a dear friend’s while I’m at it) for a screen test the next morning to play a woman named Abigail Deveraux Dimera on Days of Our Lives. Who would’ve thought?! This morning I sit in the same exact spot knowing that today, my last episode will air as this beloved character. I reflect, and am grateful. I am better for having been a part of it all. Knowing I’ve laid her in a pair of loving and capable hands does me good. Thanks for the sweet ride, Abby. My heart is full today. Xx #Days #Milly#Chabby”

So, send your well-wishes to Marci here as we give her a standing ovation for an incredible job well-done for her portrayal of Abby et al.  Will you miss Marci? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Intriguing casting news out of Port Charles on Sunday. The ABC daytime drama series has tapped former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Janet Hubert to play the character of  Yvonne,who is said to be a love interest for Mike (Max Gail) at the nursing home he is now in.

According to EW.com, Yvonne will end up having a connection to someone or someones on the canvas.

Hubert’s first episode is slated to air on December 7th.   Sitcom fans remember Janet from “Fresh Prince’ in scenes with Will Smith in the series in the role of Vivian Banks.

In another twist, Hubert will reunite with Vernee Watson (Stella)om GH.  The two appeared together on “Fresh Prince”, where Watson played Will’s mother.

Soaps Lift Boycott Threat Of Daytime Emmys

In a key move to allow those performers in front of the camera and behind the scenes crew and creatives to be acknowledged for their accomplishments this calendar year, the four daytime dramas collectively have decided to lift their threatened boycott and participate in the upcoming 46th annual Daytime Emmy competition.

This comes after the four network soaps (Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless) banded together after being unsatisfied with snafu’s coming out of the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards earlier this year in April, and a list of grievances and concerns they asked to be addressed by the organization that administers the Emmy contest.

Then, following an internal investigation by NATAS by the law firm of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth of Washington, DC, the results which were released on November 8th, and being in receipt of their findings, the soaps decided to move forward while still having concerns they want addressed.

In a statement from the group, a spokesperson related to Deadline, who broke the story late Friday: “As a group, we are not in agreement with all of the conclusions that NATAS reached.  However, in the spirit of working with NATAS and the TV Academy on improving the integrity of the Daytime Emmys, we have lifted our boycott. We look forward to meeting with NATAS to discuss their findings and our concerns in greater detail.”

On Saturday, someone close to the situation said to Michael Fairman TV: “Our participation doesn’t mean we accept their proposal moving forward, we still have major issues that we will be discussing with the Chair and President (of NATAS), but as a collective whole, we don’t want to penalize our actors for NATAS’ mis-management.”

The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy submissions began earlier this week on November 12th, with the Daytime Emmys slated to be handed out in early May of 2019.

So, are you glad that the network soaps have lifted their threatened boycott so that your favorite performers, whose performances you have loved over the last 11 months can be acknowledged for their talents and hard work? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
