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!

 

And fans should stay tuned as Jack (Matthew Ashford) and Jennifer’s relationship is rocked, as the story involving the content of the letter, and Jack and Kate’s (Lauren Koslow) secret comes to light, setting the stage for drama, drama, and more drama this week as the series celebrates its 55th annuverary.

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.

Now it’s the end of the line for Charlie on Days of our Lives, his portrayer Mike Manning took to his Instagram for some parting words of his time in Salem playing this very bad dude.

As Days fans know, many people wanted Charlie dead, and now he is! Thus begins a good old fashioned soap murder mystery on the long-running NBC soap opera, the question now is, who ultimately did the deed?

It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing. I’ll always be grateful for you.  Excited to share what’s next as soon as I can.   Arrivederci. -Charlie/Mike”

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
