More heartbreaking news for some daytime favorites this morning out of Soap Opera Digest. The publication and web platform are reporting that three performers have been axed as part of executive producer, Ken Corday’s cost-cutting measures to restructure the show.

So that means the Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe) Tamara Braun (who just came on the show replacing Natalia Livingston, as Taylor) and newcomer, Bren Foster (Quinn) have all been pink-slipped.   We will have more on this developing story later.

I totally agree they need to listen to the fans bring Nadia back !!! stupid and degrading for her talents to have her play a prostitute .The story lie with Quinn is pathetic and seems to be leading no where , not loving the show now 🙁 As for sexy i think he looks more of a sleaze .

Maybe they’ll have Chloe hook up with Philip and begin raising Parker jointly… IDK I think DOOL is just setting things up for the End of Days….

I AGREE! All the hernandez clan have been useless- especially Rafe. Maybe with Tamar Braun leaving we can get EJAMI. But I love Chloe and Danloe. I wouldnt be surprised if Shawn Christian is next.

I love Tamara Braun as Taylor she can’t leave. i want her to stay on there. if you want to fire Carly, Vivian and Quinn and Chloe and Dario just do it but not my taylor i love her so much.

This ruins my day. I was loving the new storyline with sexy Bren and finally liked Nadia and then add in Viv and magic. Yesterday’s scenes with Quinn and Vivian would pure gold–I watched them at least three times. Not so much the rest of the show. I have not missed John or Marlena.

I agree–get rid of Dario. Never liked him.

Been watching since 1984, but these recent changes are really making me mad and have ruined the show. Bren the the sexiest actor to grace the TV in ages and they dump him??!! STUPID!

Not surprised Bren’s leaving, or Nadia either. And I already knew Louise was on her way out.

Melanie is still there??? :'(

Molly should probably start polishing up that resumé. She’s not a Horton or a Brady, so her head is eligible for Corday’s chopping block. And given Crystal Chappell’s ouster, and Shawn Christian’s likely ouster in the coming months, she shouldn’t get too comfortable. Nadia’s been there far longer, and she was apparently an easy release for them.

Lyn

Why wouldn’t she be there? She’s a strong character and I think Chloe, Quinn, and Tamara take care of the six being fired.

How long until Shawn Christian is ousted? (Answer: until Jack wins back Jennifer. I give it a couple of months, tops.)

End of Days, indeed…

ThisOne

That is, a couple of months from Jack’s start date. So, what? November airdate ouster? Something like that?

You should miss chloe, if you are a true days fans. Sure she is no juila roberts in the acting department.

What in the heck is going on??? Don’t get rid of Chloe! You can lose Tamara & Bren. Why don’t you get rid of Melanie & Dario those two are so annoying, it’s like finger nails scraping a chalk board.

Cody

Are you out of your mine get rid melanie and dario! Gabi and chad need the boot!

wednesday

I think you mean (mind) and no I’m not. Melanie & Dario, who has a slight eye problem which is distracting, have no chemistry and very little acting abilities. Chad & Gabi who get little air time can leave as well.

Anne-Marie

That is it!

I have no idea what the hell TPTB at Days are doing, but it’s one hell of a fire sale….They must be trying to cut the budget even more to show NBC how frugal they can be – BAD MOVE!!!

I am really sad, because I used to always find myself coming back to Days when I had strayed and still finding something I still recognized in the show – I’m not so sure that’s going to be the case any longer.

Enjoy your time on NBC while you can, Days of our Lives…I believe your contract is up in 2013…..

Lyn
Lyn

Umm. They’re getting ready to pay really big salaries to the people they’ve hired already. It’s not a fire sale it’s finally remembering who the people have been begging for since they were let go.

Cody

I very upset that crystal chappell , louise sorel, and bren foster were let go. Ken corday pick the wrong ones to fire, vivan is a very popular villian and soap star. Crystal chappell is a great actress and is popular as well. Bren foster could have a great time as the smooth talking pimp , him and E.j could have bump heads(days lost). They better keep Rafe, Dario, Melajnie, and Daniel. Please get rid of Chad and Gabi next. Bring back Austin, Carrie,Lucas, and mike horton.

vera

I totally agree with you bren foster was rehired hope that’s true. Louise sorel I first saw her on the original STAR TREK she played a humanoid she was gorgeous….Her acting abilites are old school an on the mark! What a lose, what’s next Stefano? Weak players Gaby, Dario, Taylor, boring

Loved Tamara on GH and AMC. Make up a character for her on GH and bring her back.

Sympathize with actors because of job loss, but good move to remove characters Chloe, Taylor and Quinn.

Chloe story has gone from bad to worse. Chloe as a prostitute is horrible. This girl has a voice for Opera and she is reduced to a prostitute. What a waist of Nadia’s talent. At the very least the writers could have let her become a cabaret singer to “sing for her supper”. Prostitution plot is a huge turn off.

Tamara Braun never should have replaced Natalia Livingston in the first place. Also, writers should have let Taylor take the high road, stay true to Nicole and drive EJ out of his mind. Good get what you deserve ploy for EJ (although he deserves MUCH MUCH more).

Quinn is a twerp-creep. Mom, Vivian, needs to slap him down in every way possible: physically, as well as plot-wise. If more forethought had been given to his story, Vivian could have caught Quinn in one of her evil traps and become a hero, putting him in his place. That would have been good. Too little, too late. As for as Quinn/Chloe is concerned: terrible idea.

Imane Assi

The only one I will miss is Nadia/Chloe.Losing the extremely talented and drop dead gorgeous Nadia is the worst thing that could happen to the show. When you have someone like Nadia on your show you don’t let her go. You write sl’s worthy of her talent and beauty. Wether it was her decision or hers, they have to find a way to bring her back and give us back the real Chloe. Chloe Lane: A veteran(12 years), very loved and famous character thanks to her portrayer….they can’t let her go:They’ll lose: Chloe’s ,Broe’s, Phloe’s, Danloe’s, Carloe’s, Luloe’s, Quinnloe’s fans. Huge fanbase. No other character on Daytime has such huge fanbase. They already lost most of them because of the damages caused by DH to the character. They have the chance to fix that with the new writers. Instead They let her go.She brings talent,beauty,charm and hottness. Their loss.They just shot yourselves in the foot.
Getting rid of Chloe isn ‘t listening to the fans,The fans have been begging to bring the real Chloe back not to let Chloe go.Nadia is paying for DH’s hatred and jealousy of her.It’s unfair.Chloe is a longtime fan favorite.HUGE HUGE mistake.

This is a very bad move. I can understand letting TB go, she has been all wrong for the part of Taylor from the beginning. She’s a fantastic role but not believable as the doe eyed innocent or the younger sister of Nicole when she looks significantly older than Ari Zucker. I also agree with Bren Foster, as his character brings nothing to the canvas but to let go of Nadia Bjorlin, a fan fav who has been on for many years and who has a HUGE following as being half of Danloe is a bad move. i’m not even really a fan of that couple but they were certainly more interesting than watching Daniel grow more and more boring with Ms. Snoozefest Jennifer Horton. If they couldn’t get Matt Ashford or Mark Valley back for Jack, Jennifer should’ve stayed off screen too. And letting go of Chrystal Chappell is ludicrous, when she came on the show had a very significant jump in ratings. She is a fantastic actress with a HUGE fanbase and instead of utilizing her, they have left her in the background for most of her stint and now when a storyline really starts happening for her she’s fired. Who they should be getting rid of is The Hernandez family: Rafe, Dario, and Gabi would have all been better choices to let go then CC or NB. That’s three right there, plus Taylor, and Quinn and Jennifer or Abby or both. Then Lucas should be brought back with John and Marlena as well as maybe Martha Maddiso as Belle or even bring back Brandon and they should’ve got Jacob Young from AMC since that’s ending as a recast for Philip, creating more storyline for him and Chloe, him and Melanie, and The Kiriakis’ vs the Dimeras when EJ is back to his old self instead of being a punk for Taylor since she’d be gone. Ken Corday has definitely let the wrong people go!

I’m so pissed Nadia is fired! Why should she get the shaft because Higley wrote this HORRIBLE storyline. I was hoping for a fresh start when they brought a new guy in for her, but they made the guy a pimp! Ack! The character was a smart girl in high school when she came to the show. Higley just wrote her in a corner. You can be the show sex bomb without making her a bimbo whore.

If Corday did not want stories of prostitution and drug addiction, why did he let Higley START those stories? Doesn’t he have to know and approve of what’s coming? The character’s been on the show on and off since 1999, this just is wrong.

I understand Taylor and Quinn going. New characters, Taylor just was not working as a character in a story that’s not working. I like Tamara, it’s too bad the way it worked out.

Making Quinn a pimp….not sorry to see him go. If he wasn’t a pimp I could root for a Quinn/Chloe and give them a chance because I thought they could start fresh with a romantic story. At least thats what I was hoping. Higley had other ideas. Too bad because I like the actor. Just bad timing on his part to join the show before a shakeup

dee

They made a huge mistake with the Taylor/Nicole/EJ story line. Taylor turning EJ into an honest dude is FREAKING BORING, BORING, BORING, BORING !!!

We watch because of all the crazy things EJ and his twisted family do. Nicole is best with EJ. I can’t believe what they attempted with that story line. It’s painful to watch Taylor. I actually stopped watching. I will watch when she is off. Nothing against her, but you could not have picked a worse person to play Taylor. The Taylor the had before was so pretty, classy and sweet. Then like that, they replace her with an actress that looks like a drug addict. She looks like she has an eating problem. Wrong, Wrong Wrong

Melissa Reeves Talks Jack’s Return; Paul Telfer & Greg Rikaart Dish On Xander and Leo’s Rendezvous On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, long-running star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) sits down to chat with host Michael Fairman about the shocking return of Jack Deveraux (Matt Ashford) to Salem, and how Jennifer is trying to cope with the believed-to-be-dead love-of-her-life who has come to town with no memory of her … or his past!

Reeves chats on: how she found out Matt Ashford was coming back to DAYS, how important those New Year’s Eve scenes were, her on-screen and off-screen relationship with Salem arch-rival, Kassie DePaiva (Eve), and a look back at Jack and Jenn’s memorable wedding and their vows decades ago.  Missy also talks about the love of her life, Scott Reeves (Ex-Ryan, Y&R, Ex-Steve, GH Ex-Jake, DAYS), and their new coffee business in Nashville. Missy also takes tie to remember the late Frances Reid and MacDonald Carey as her on-screen grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, and the importance of carrying on the tradition of the Horton family to this day on-air.

Later, Paul Telfer (Xander) and Greg Rikaart (Leo) talk with Fairman all about last Friday’s cliffhanger, where Leo jumps on Xander for sex in exchange for providing information to Xander on Sonny and Will, so Xander can become CEO of Titan.  But will Xander go through with it?  The two talk about playing these opportunistic, bad boy characters.

Then, in a fun game, Paul and Greg are presented with some of the hilarious dialog from head writer, Ron Carlivati and his team from recent airshows, where the podcast tests their muscle memory to see ig they recall which was the correct line of dialog said by Leo, Xander, or Victor!

Judith Chapman Confirms She Is Back On DAYS And As Leo’s Mom

Exciting news DAYS fans, those rumblings were true! Judith Chapman will be playing the trouble-making Leo Stark’s (Greg Rikaart) mother on Days of our Lives.  And that reunites Chapman with Rikaart as mother and son.

As soap fans know, they played Gloria and Kevin Fisher on The Young and the Restless for many years together.  Now they will be playing a new mother/son dynamic duo in Salem. But, just what kind of twisted relationship might they have, since Leo has given clues that she was a bad mom?

Soap Opera Digest revealed that Judith will play Diana.   Her first airdate will be on January 29th.  DAYS fans know Judith from her time as Angelica Deveraux from 1989-1991, and most recently when she returned to the show for the 2018 Halloween episode doing a guest-turn as Angelica AKA Satan in Hattie’s (Deidre Hall) nightmare.

Chapman confirmed her arrival on the Salem scene in a tweet today, stating “And I don’t have to keep the secret either Mitch Sandusky! What a GREAT way to start 2019… More articles to come in TV Guide Magazine and Soap Opera Digest… and to be reunited with my TV son.

Diana will have a past with John Black (Drake Hogestyn), which could cause trouble for John and Marlena’s wedded bliss.

So, excited to know Judith will once again tear up the soap-screen, but this time back on DAYS? Comment below.
