Rest In Peace & Sing With The Angels, Dear Donna!

sorry to hear this… lost track of her but hearing her name brings up memories of college and later my little niece would be wiggling to the beat of her favorite music “donasuma”. Another niece years later played Last
Dance at the end of her reception. Her music will always remind me of good times. Read her life history today as soon as I heard she died. Lots about her I didn’t know – especially the musicals and living in Germany… very interesting. Thank you Donna! loved the music!

So sad to see another music legend pass! Will have to play some Donna Summer on Youtube and Itunes!

Wow! God Bless Donna Summer. RIP. The first thing that came to mind… was when i lived in Hawaii… and “Last Dance”… was the last song… that “Hula’s” played…. ie: about 1:45 a.m… She danced. We danced. Who hasn’t sung her songs. two songs that really mean something to me… “Love is in control” & “I remember Yesturday”. Take care. She figured prominently in the music industry… What a STAR.

Such a huge loss, who will ever forget Last Dance?

I played some of them today..My friend called me and told me the sad news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SPRING AFFAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Days Of Our Lives

Jen Lilley on Days of our Lives’ Theresa Recast Decision: “It’s a Little Befuddling, But I Still Am Really Grateful That I Got to Go Back.”

Now that the word is out that Days of our Lives star, Emily O’Brien, will be taking over the role of Theresa Donovan from Jen Lilley, fans of the Peacock streaming soap opera are wondering just how the show plans to unveil O’Brien as the recast Theresa, and how she will exit her current role as Gwen.

Meanwhile, Jen Lilley, who had appeared on DAYS as Theresa on and off since 2013, has been speaking to media outlets about what went down behind the scenes in the turn of events that led her part to be recast midstream of her most recent story arc.

Speaking with PEOPLE, Lilley shared that she was under the impression that DAYS was going to fit 12 weeks of episodes into the 4 weeks she gave the show for her availability to be back at the soap opera.  Jen wanted to return to film scenes relating to the memorial service of Victor Kiriakis, because of her close bond with the late, John Aniston.

Jen noted that she went to then co-executive producer, Albert Alarr, and asked why she received less scripts than expected. That is when she learned someone else was going to be taking over the role. She asked, “You told me Theresa’s going to do X, Y, and Z, but I just got the schedule for Monday, and it’s only this one script. Is Theresa still going to do that?”

Lilley says that Alarr responded with, “Theresa’s still going to do all of that. It’s just we’re going to go ahead and do it with another actress.’ That’s how I found out.”

It was at that time, according to Lilley, she asked who would be replacing her and learned it was DAYS cast member, Emily O’Brien. Alarr informed her it would be Emily moving over from her role as Gwen Rizczech. Jen shared she was further confused because they wanted Theresa to be blonde and Emily is a brunette. That was addressed, when she learned O’Brien would be donning a blonde wig for the part.

In wrapping up her time on DAYS, Jen said, “I think Emily drew the shortest straw, honestly. I was like, ‘That is the worst thing you could possibly do to a recast is be like, we’re going to wig you and make you just walk through fire for eight weeks.’ I don’t know whether it was a budgetary thing or a scheduling thing where they just couldn’t work the schedule out so everybody could do it. I don’t know their reasoning. It’s a little befuddling, but I still am really grateful that I got to go back.”

Now it remains to be seen, just how long O’Brien will play Gwen. Is it for the short planned arc of Theresa? Will it be longer? Will Lilley be back? All we can say is, play close attention to the Friday, October 6th and Monday, October 9th episodes of Days of our Lives.

What do you think about the sentiments shared by Lilley on recasting Theresa with Emily O’Brien? Comment below.
