Happy to see Alison Sweeney on this list, along with Chandler Massey, Zack Tinker, and Paul Telfer! All of my favorites! Really looking forward to this but Days: bring back Wilson!!!!

This is starting to seem very disrespectful to Stacy Haiduk. If Eileen Davidson wants to come back and those in charge want her, then hire her. But bringing her back only for special events is sending a weird message that Eileen is still the “real” Kristen and Stacy — who has worked her butt off in this role for years — is some kind of place holder. Once was a fun surprise for viewers. Now it’s starting to seem rude. How would any of us feel if our company had a special event and they sidelined you to bring back… Read more »

Eileen Davidson is the REAL Kristen and for me the only one who ought to play the role. I am sick of Stacey Haiduk in the role and wish she would just go away!

I agree that there seems to be needless confusion where Kristen is concerned. I would understand if Eileen wanted to return to DAYS only for guest appearances, like in Beyond Salem and in this upcoming movie. But on the actual show? It’s very jarring going from one scene where Eileen’s Kristen is seducing John in the crypt and Stacy’s Kristen is blackmailing Gwen at the police station. Not a fan of the back-and-forth, and I agree that Stacy has been unbelievably good as Kristen. It’s a tough role to nail down without making her cartoonish, and Stacy’s done an excellent… Read more »

This back and and forth with Stacy and Eileen is not acceptable. I have always loved Eileen, especially on Y&R where Stacy also outshined as Patty. We know it isn’t of Eileen’s doing, but her taking parts away from Stacy,for lack of a better explanation is so disrespectful. It’s like they are telling Stacy that she can play a cat or that loony-toon better.SHAME ON DOOL!

For real! Total agreement. Once was a nice surprise, bit now it’s a pattern and not fai and respectful to Stacy. Eileen is great, but that’s not how you do things. Respect is lacking for Stacy unfortunately.

I totally agree. Ron said the role belongs to Stacy now yet Eileen is brought in for these Peacock specials. While I adore Eileen and her talent, Stacy knocks it out of the park and deserves better. MUCH better.

“The elves are dressed in leather
And the angels are in chains
Christmas with the Devil
The sugar plums are rancid
And the stockings are in flames
Christmas with the Devil
There’s a demon in my belly
And a gremlin in my brain
There’s someone up the chimney hole
And Satan is his name

The rats ate all the presents
And the reindeer ran away
Christmas with the Devil
There’ll be no Father Christmas
‘Cause it’s Evil’s holiday
Christmas with the Devil

No bells in Hell
No snow below
Silent Night, Violent Night
So come, all ye unfaithful
Don’t be left out in the cold
You don’t need no invitation, no…
Your ticket is your soul”

Yes, a very promising cast. But will someone please tell these handsome actors that we want to see their great faces, not these recurring beards. It looked like we were getting away from that… GH’s Josh Swickard looked incredibly gorgeous without that beard all summer. But now they seem to be crawling back. Sorry, not a fan.

A question though: if Will is writing this script about people he knows from Salem then how is Paulina a part of his script? I don’t think Will has ever met Paulina???

I wonder if Days would consider putting Beyond Salem and the new Christmas movie on the NBC app also during the Holidays. I mean school is out, everyone is home. Not veryone is a college football fan. It would expose a lot of new people to the show and they could always return Beyond Salem and the movie to just peacock after the holidays.

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
