Just what Theresa needs-a kick in the pants from mom & dad! Jen Lilley is knocking it out of the park-she is so good as a “bad”girl-I have to laugh at her sometimes which is a good thing-a good laugh is never bad, right? I love how she talks to herself but I admit I was not crazy about how she treated Vargas. Anyway. Love this storyline.

it’s a treat to rely on good acting.

she disarms me… she’s engaging… she’s hot to trot… she speaks up… no matter what the hecks going on… she’s more than that hot “bad” girl… she’s interesting… and captivating…

OK enough already… she’s cute as a button… heck… think back on that oh so bad dyed blond hair… bright red lipstick… that cleopatra eye shadow/eye liner… now… she’s a lovely young hot to trout, puts herself out their.. albeit… questionable ethics… all the rest be damned… she’s on fire doing her thing. whilst Hope and the lovely firey aunt kayla reel Jeanne Theresa Donovan “home”.

umh! if I had her shutz pa…. i’d be just as busy… LOL.

you’re oh so right… the way Vargas… went down… dang! talk about mystifying… had the charismatic come hither abandon… most would take leave…. ouch! HOT.

Theresa has the potential to chemistry it with any one.

OK… ’nuff said… did I say she’s better in Salem… than in Port Charles…

Jenn Lilly…

you are an unto yourself… say what one will… Theresa walks the walk

I always enjoy Charles Shaughnessy when he returns to Days of Our Lives as “Shane”.

Patrick

Charles Shaughnessy… still talking about … “what a hot man”… after all these years.

when he came back… last year? and he had scenes with Lisa Rinna’s, Billie.

I thought… what an explosion waiting to happen…

i’ve since posted… what a shot in the arm… potential love interests for Kristen.. should she sans “her” ways and means… with Brady and Father Eric… since that’s not going to happen…

finally… some one for Hope! since, no Vargas!

dang! why don’t the producers hear, read, and listen to the fans of?

alas… Shane and Kimberly… weep – tears…. of joy…. it’s going to happen. I await these two stalwarts… combustible… two some… who unrequited with passionate abandon…. sparks

and all for the minx… femme fatale… ultruistic…

Days needs help…this is good news but for how long and whatever happened to Andrew? By the way whatever happened to Dougs surrugate son Little Dougie?

God, imagine if they could get Charlotte Ross back as Eve Donovan too. It won’t happen of course but Eve is one of the best villaineses this show ever had. Without her setting the tone for villainy, there most certainly wouldn’t have been a Kristen or a Sami doing their evil deeds in the 90s.

Eve is my all time favorite bitch! I would fall apart if
Charlotte Ross came back!! Please come back Charlotte!!
I’ll pull myself togather!!! It would be like striking gold
to see Eve slap her sister’s face!!!! Eve owes Kimberly
at least that much!!!!! I’m over the moon, thinking of all
the possibilities!!!!!!

It will help anchor Theresa ‘s character on the show– a lot of newer viewers didn’t see Kim and Shane so this will help them understand them and their daughter and how they all fit onto the canvas. Doubtful the parents will be there long term, but to help get their daughter firmly affixed into the mix on the show I think it is a good move. And it will be good to see Kim and Shane in town— now if they could only get Bo, (recast if necessary) back we might actually see all the core Bradys home for Thanksgiving this year.

Thrilled to have Charles Shaunessey back on Days. It would be a coup to have him stay.Perhaps Shane can bring down Stefano for good. Remember, th Diners Mansion was once the Donovan Mansion. After Ejami escape this latest storyline they need a big wedding and a new home.

Glad Shane will be coming back. Always glad to see Charles Shaughnessy.

I think “Shane” should put Teresa over his knee for a much needed spanking.

Miss the good old days!! The super couples and interesting plots!!! I am glad to see them return!! The Sammy show is uninteresting as all get out. I can’t believe they had to make Sammy such a main character. Let them develop the other “super couples” kids into the next act and the show would be much better!

DAYS Camila Banus Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

The angst, drama, tears, and revenge continued this week on NBC’s Days of our Lives with the stirring portrayal of grief-stricken young woman; who is hell-bent on making everyone around her suffer for the loss of her husband in a fatal gunshot that left him brain-dead.  Of course, we are talking about Camila Banus (Gabi), who turned in bravura performances this week, and there are four moments that really stood out to us that showed the range and depth of Banus’ work.

In the hospital chapel, Gabi talks to God and prayed to him that he will make Stefan (Brandon Barash) whole again.  There has been one through-line for Gabi throughout her life – she seems to have everything and everyone she loves taken away from her, even if some of the decisions she makes along the way have a cause/effect that leaves her feeling completely alone, and ready to lash out at the world for what has transpired.  In the chapel, she asks God through her tears, “Why do you hate me so much?” Gabi tells God she went to Sunday school as a little girl and still she has lost God and her husband.  Gabi cannot even get herself to look at Stefan’s things when Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) try to share them with her as she slaps the envelope out of their hands.

In another heartbreaking scene, Gabi is in the bed she shared with Stefan. She flashes to kissing the love of her life.  Next, Gabi breaks down in tears, and throws things around in the bedroom before slumping to the floor.  She sobs and says, “Why did you give me your heart, Stefan, if you weren’t going to be around to love me with it?”

Later, Gabi talks to Stefan in her sleep as she hugs his pillow. When she wakes up she cries as Kate (Lauren Koslow) arrives to check on her.  Gabi lets Kate have it, and at first blames Kate for the whole mess with Stefan.  Gabi lashes out that if it wasn’t for Stefan getting in between Kate’s feud with Vivian (Robin Strasser), he’d still be alive.  Kate knows Gabi is in despair and hugs her.  Then, Gabi channels her angst towards Lani (Sal Stowers) promising to make her suffer.

And on Friday’s episode, Gabi is ramping us some sort of revenge plan promising Stefan his legacy will live on. Earlier, Gabi was present with Lani and Eli (Lamon Archey) when Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) informed them that Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) will need a special pacemaker, even after receiving Stefan’s heart. Somehow, Gabi found a file on Visionary Bionics, the company that makes this unique medical device, and recalls Kayla saying she’ll do the procedure on Julie tomorrow. Gabi makes a mysterious call.  What is she about to do?

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”

The duo who became so popular as “Stabi” reveals why Gabi and Stefan’s love/hate relationship worked so well, and those sexed up love scenes.  Later in the interview Camila discusses her recent scenes with Sal Stowers (Lani) where Gabi wants Lani to get down on her knees and beg for forgiveness for Lani shooting Stefan, even though he got in the line of fire to save his mother, Vivian (Robin Strasser).  In addition, Camila talks about working with Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) and how Julie hurled some minority slurs at Gabi shortly before her heart-attack.
