Big news from the DOOL app that went down on Sunday during the Daytime Emmy Awards.  Fan favorites Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi are coming back to Days of our Lives to reprise their roles of Chad DiMera and Abigail Deveraux DiMera.

When viewers last saw Chad and Abby, they tied the knot and headed off to Europe with their children in tow.  Now, we will have to wait and see just what happens when they return to Salem!

Look for Flynn and Mansi’s return to happen this fall on-screen.

As many know, Mansi previously won a Daytime Emmy for her work as Abby, and Flynn has been a nominee.

I am shocked, honestly. I didn’t expect them to return so soon, especially with Kate Mansi in the role. I’m wondering, however, is this a long-term return or a short-term return for holiday-centric episodes? Admittedly, I would’ve preferred for Marci Miller to return, but it’ll be nice to have two familiar faces back in these roles, especially since Billy Flynn admitted he’d accept a recast if that were the route TPTB chose to take for the character of Chad.

Days is like a prime time show with characters making guest appearances…

Temporary or long term?

More than likely this is a short visit. I hate when they make headlines like these making it sound as if they are coming back, then its like for 2 episode. Bye.

Yeah, ReRon pulled that dragonshit all the time when he was ruining GH. And we’re already seeing this on Days i.e. the recent 2 day appearance of Valerie Grant. If all she was going to do was break up with Abe, that didn’t need to be shown on screen.

I would guess we will see Chad & Abby show up for the Hellidays and then disappear again shortly thereafter.

Maybe because of their budget, DOOL can’t afford to have Kate Mansi and Billy Flynn come back full-time and maybe they’re even fine with short term returns and not be tied down to a contract.So maybe the show is just happy to get them back when they can

No offense to Kate but I would have liked Marci Miller come back as Abby. Kate has been in a lot of Lifetime movies ,hey maybe they should chance the name to Days Of our Lifetime.

I’m happy about this news.Now as for why the characters of Chad and Abigail might be returning, well if and when Jack remembers it makes sense that his daughter Abigail should be there for it and maybe Chad returns to support Abigail.

Yes! Why did TPTB have them written out in the first place?

Ellen Pompeo Rips Into ‘The Bachelor’ Creator And Defends Kelly Ripa For Her Comments

Things just got juicy from daytime to primetime after Kelly Ripa let her thoughts be known about the current ‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown and the ‘Bachelor’ franchise during her morning show with Ryan Seacrest this week,

During a moment on the syndicated Live with Kelly and Ryan on Tuesday, Seacrest informed Ripa that the new ‘Bachelorette’ would be appearing on Thursday’s episode to which Ripa said: “You know how I feel about this show? It disgusts me. And I thought that I was disgusted because I couldn’t stand the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting over one ordinary fella, in my opinion. You know how we feel ladies! We are too special to be arguing over a guy.”  She also called the audience out for watching this “gross, gross, show.”

Following her sentiments, The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss took to his Twitter account as did host and EP, Chris Harrison.  Fleiss said, “Easy, Kelly Ripa.  The Bachelor franchise pays for your salary.”  While Harrison tweeted: “Look out @KellyRipa⁩ is coming after you and your ‘disgusting’ Monday night habit.”

Next, none other than Grey’s Anatomy franchise star, Ellen Pompeo joined the fray.  She tweeted in defense of Ripa.  Pompeo wrote: “Okay @fleissmeister… that’s some handle bro! Your show does NOT pay @KellyRipa salary. Also we don’t attack successful women on our network and men certainly cannot take credit for their success. Don’t get me started on your show cuz I’m a savage….

And in the end on Thursday’s installment of the entertainment talk show, Hannah Brown made her guest appearance and she weighed-in on the situation expressing that she didn’t follow the franchise at first, but being on the show has changed her mind. Ripa maintained her disgust for the series.

Brown went on to say to Ripa: “Like you, I didn’t really follow the show, wasn’t a big fan, but being part of the show, it’s not women fighting against each other.  Some of my best friends came from the show and were really supportive.”

So what do you think about what Ripa, Pompeo, Brown, Harrison and Fleiss had to share with each other on their Twitter war? Comment below.
