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 .

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…

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

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.

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.
