I am happy to help keep #jackandjen front and center… wait till you see what Matt Ashford does with this story! He really shines! Proud to be a part of this terrific cast .”and show!

She needs to stick around; am loving her in the role, and cannot wait to see what comes next in the storyline. Not to mention, she has fantastic chemistry with the cast, especially Matthew Ashford (who I am not a huge fan of).

Sorry, was trying to give her a chance, but she isn’t good. Not as bad as the replacement Kristen Dimera from Eileen Davidson but it’s bad. Plus she needs to lay off the Botox…. I just hope Missy Reeves comes back soon!!!

Adam, take a flying leap! You say her acting stinks and her looks are bad? I’d love to see what you look like!

Violet, I didn’t say her acting stinks, I just said she wasn’t good in that role. I also didn’t say her looks are bad, I just said she needs to lay off the Botox… I think you need to stop reading into things and go take the flying leap yourself.

Missy Reeves, despite the PR spin, is in the proverbial dog house. I will be very surprised if DOOL brings Missy back any time soon. NBC is still dealing with the loud backlash as a result of Missy’s publicly stated views about BLM.

Contrary to your opinion, I think that Cady is brilliant in the role of Jennifer. Long May Cady stay!
The comment about Boxtox is both insensitive AND uncalled for. Your personal approval of Cady’s appearance is not required or requested.

Appreciate your comment. As I happen to like Cady. I guess my buttons got pushed when he said “she isn’t good and to lay off the Botox”

Why? She chose to keep her family safe and the ones she works with as well. I don’t blame her for making the decision she made.

not one questionable “commentary” look how quickly other characters get to respond… no waiting… no long camera pan… truthfully.. i’m still caught up in the election, covid, interruption galore… so affecting my viewing habit from what i’m catching up on…. Cady’ got it… and Jack is responding!!! i hope to be back up to speed, when Ava returns !!!! at the very least my new couple that i was rooting for from the start, may be back on track… and that’s the lighted up blossom of Tripp and Ali. “YOUNG LOVE” stirring two qualified acts , hit the skids and… Read more »

Only Melissa Reeves can play Jennifer. I am a big fan and grew up watching her. She is an amazing person and I love everything she stands for. Please bring her back! Also as a side note; Stacey rocks the part of Kristen Dimera. Love her.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
