Charles Shaughnessy And Patsy Pease Making A Return To DAYS!



Looks like there will be some intriguing story ahead on NBC’s Days of our Lives via a post on Charles Shaughnessy’s official facebook page.   It is there that it notes that: “Look for Charlie in November. He will appear on the show as Shane Donovan, with Patsy & Jen.”

That means it looks like Shane and Kimberly (Patsy Pease) will be on the canvas presumably to help wrap-up the departing Jen Lilley’s storyline, (the actress confirmed her departure in a statement on Monday) when she exits the canvas as Theresa, but perhaps there is more story for beloved super couple Shane and Kim?

Look for more on Charles and Patsy’s return to Days of our Lives in this week’s latest issue of Soap Opera Digest, where they hint that this time the two actors are not back just for a super “quickie” visit.  This will mark Shaughnessy’s fifth time on DAYS since he left in 1992. His previous returns were in 2002, 2010, and 2013 and now 2016.   As for Pease, she last appeared in 2015.

So, excited to have Charles and Patsy on-screen on DAYS come November sweeps time?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

    I’m looking forward to their big return! I’ve seen several hints that there is big story for them this time. Don’t forget: Kassie DePaiva also returns as Eve, most likely bigger than a visit, too!

      I really don’t think Kassie DePaiva (as Eve) is back in town for much except to say good bye to Theresa (her kid sister) who obviously is going to be killed off – and the others are around to help take care of the baby. What else could it POSSIBLY be –

    I adore Patsy and Charlie and I hope the writing is up to the task. I’ve waited a very long time for Shane and Kim to return and I will tune in for them, but the writing has to be there for them. The thought of having Shane, Kim, Patch and Kayla on the show for however long, at the same time, is giving me the warm fuzzies.

    “THEY” …

    look so GOOD

    it’s astounding that DAYS production value… don’t include… Shane and Kimberly Donovan

    i’m certain …. if hired… contract

    they would be thee “best” actors on Days of OUR Lives

    they have so much presence
    they have so much chemistry
    they have so much acting talent

    I can only … “pray” that Jen Lilly character of Jeanne Theresa Donovan is leaving the show… and mom and pops are back on to bid adieu

    it’s pissed off languishing… that DOOL – FIRED – Kassie DePiava

    they had RICHES to mine
    they had RICHES to feast
    they had RICHES

    the Brady Donovan family… had … IT… ALL

    NBC / Sony / Days… by all means… if Shane and Kimberly Donovan are back for a featured story… this is big

    this is huge

    the best of the best in daytime… is this

    the Brady – Donovan family…


    theres so much potential in this mine field

    I loved watching Kim and Shane ! My favorite couple! i stopped watching Days after Patsy left. But. I did watch when either of then returned. Recently I started watching with the return of Bo. Days writers really messed that one up! Bo never said goodbye to his Kimber . So that being said after watching yesterday’s episode all about Hope . which made me laugh , cry – Here’s hoping the keep Shane Kim bring back Andrew and KEEP them on Days this time!

    I guess they are back for the big Funeral and Eve is temporarily back for that as well, unless they are all in town for a Birthday Party for Theresa…which, uh…I doubt.
    So, I would imagine that Theresa gets killed off (I don’t think there are plans to re-cast the role) and all these relatives are in town to say adios.

    I love Charles Shaughnessy and would be so happy if he could have a long stint on Days. He is a great actor and is still a very sexy man.

DAYS Elani Wedding (Photos): What Did You Think Of The Nuptials?

This week on Days of our Lives saw the first African-American couple to be married on-screen in the 54-year history of Days of our Lives.  Now while Lani (Sal Stowers) and Eli (Lamon Archey) tried before in a previous ceremony, this one did the job … they are now officially husband and wife!

The ceremony was attended by Lani’s dad, Abe Reynolds (James Reynolds), her mother Tamara Price (Marily McCoo), Billy Davis Jr.  as a former FBI mentor to Eli, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) – it was her restaurant after all and she is Eli’s grandmother.  Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) presided over the ceremony.

There were some unwelcome guests at the ceremony as well; leading the bride to question, are we doomed?  Why does this keep happening to us everytime we tried to get hitch!

However, fate was on Lani and Eli’s side this day, as even Gabi (Camila Banus) with her antics, and a shocking arrival from Vivian Alamain (Louise Sorel), couldn’t rain on this day.  Vivian even tried to shoot the bride, but thanks to Rafe (Galen Gering) saving the day and armed with news that her son Stefan (Brandon Barash) could be alive; he informs Viv firmly that she would be killing someone for the wrong reason, even though Vivian is in disbelief that her son is alive.  Next, she is whisked out of the ceremony.

Lani still feeling rattled by all the wedding interruptus gets a sign she should marry the man she loves; when her mother, who needed to go lie down earlier, as she was feeling faint, was able to show back up just in time to restart the wedding.


During the ceremony, Eli mentions the loss of little David Abraham and the struggles they went through, but how in the end it brought then closer together.  After the rings are exchanged and they are pronounced man and wife, the newlyweds “jump the broom” a wonderful tradition and a symbol of African-American heritage, where the sweeping of the broom signifies sweeping away all the bad energy.  After they sweep the broom, Elani jumps over it.

In a behind-the-scenes of the wedding segment released this week on the DOOL app, Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey talk about the inclusion of the ‘jump the broom’ moment in the episode, and how they suggested the idea to DAYS Co-EP Albert Alaar, and how  it was written into the episode.

So, what did you think of Lani and Eli’s wedding? Did you enjoy it? Let us know via the comment section below, but first check out this wedding photo gallery of the big day!

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.


The ladies of CBS’s The Talk hosted the event; each virtually from their homes, in an event filled with at-home acceptance speeches and presenters, and clip packages. The show was produced by NATAS and Associated Television International
