One of daytime’s darlings, Chrishell Stause has completed her run as Jordan Ridgeway on Days of our Lives! The actress announced it series of tweets on her Twitter account today!  Stause who has completed taping will air well into March of 2015, since Days of our Lives tapes so far in advance!

Chrishell told her fans and followers: “Sadly I have wrapped up my time over at NBC Days.  It’s been an amazing journey & the best is yet to come for Jordan.  I taped scenes in Nov I’m really proud of and I will air into March.  I’ve made great friends and memories in my time there. I would like to thank NBC/Corday for the opportunity. I love my daytime family & am looking forward to what the future has in store.”

After her announcement, Stause received many tweets to which she replied:  “Wish I could express how much all the sweet (&funny) comments mean! I am truly grateful to have the support of such amazing people. XO”

O.K Y&R, you’re up!  Will the CBS soap opera considering bringing Stause to their show now that her current sweetheart Justin Hartley is set to bring it as the new Adam Newman? We shall see!

So, what are your thoughts on the exit of Chrishell in Salem?  Comment below!

IF MCE were to leave, I could see Chrishell making a good Chelsea…

At the rate Y&R is doing the last year, Emmy winning and fan favorites leaving and recasting galore, I really believe this will happen Jay.

Jay, Did you know MCE and CS were on AMC at the same time? It truly was hard to tell them apart. In a recent interview it stated her and MCE are best friends and her and her boyfriend double date with MCE and her husband all the time. The most interesting thing though is that Justin Hartley is CS’s boyfriend! He’s now coming to Y&R as Adam, MCE’s character Chelsea’s husband! Is that confusing? MCE’s character,Chelsea, is married to her real life best friend’s boyfriend’s character, Adam. My head is spinning. Lol I wonder if her character will be… Read more »

Laurie,
I believe Jordan will continue to exist in Salem. Chrishell herself says, “…..the best is yet to come for Jordan.” So, I’m assuming the character will be recast. Too bad Chrishell is leaving…but, perhaps we’ll see her in other ventures. …wish her well.
I also wish…and, hope, that Jordan will assume a meaningful role instead of babysitting Ben and vice versa. These two are attached at the hip. They are adults…Enough already…let this stupid secret, whatever it is, come up for air, and be done. Every time I see Clyde, I groan…loudly…sacrebleu..!!

She would make a great Heather–Paul’s daughter. Remember Adam and Heather were involved and he ended up breaking her heart? With Justin Hartley coming on as Adam, I could see a Heather recast in the guise of Chrishell Stause. Moreover, she could be great as Dylan’s sister since Victoria and Nicholas are pretty lousy at being charitable and generous to their half siblings.
I always loved her on AMC–she was one of the bright lights of that series during its last days.

I’m so sorry to hear this. There must be a typo on this article. “I taped scenes in Nov……” We haven’t had Nov yet.

At any rate, I’m sad to see her go. I like Chrishell. I hope that Jordan and Rafe could work out their troubles. Both look like they could use a break in life. Oh, well. Much luck to Chrishell in her future.

I wish her well, but her character wasn’t really going anywhere– the story hasn’t panned out like I thought it would. I thought her secret would be she was Hope’s and John’s daughter – conceived when they were the Pawn and Princess Gina. In the end her secret didn’t seem worth the effort they went to keep it– unless there is more to the story, it wasn’t what it could have been. Actually her story line reminds of another character whose time in Salem ended up to be such a waste of potential and that was Madison. As for going… Read more »

Her storyline was uneventful and just plain boring…was she a former prostitute, a drug addict, a porn star, or did she kill someone…what was all the different i.d.s for…whats the big mystery in Jordons past…sorry but Jordan, Ben, and Clyde add nothing to the show…there were possibilities but i dont think the writers even knew what to do with them…write out all three and Rafe…bring on Stephan S.(ex Cass, AW) as his old character Steve Olsen…as a scheming businessman after Dimera Enterprises and as a new love interest for Kate and Eve…Jerry Ver Dorn as Bill Horton who is the… Read more »

I had to reply here regarding your “big cast shake up” comment of 1979-1980:

I think we spoke of this before…Of the nine performers who were added to DAYS in the 1980 season to replace the prior exodus, only one had a renewed contract…Gloria Loring!

I hope DAYS brings her back. Gloria was DAYS saving grace!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Gloria Loring was the only addition i liked during that time…we did talk about it…i stopped watching Days after the mass firings but gradually came back and Gloria was partly the reason…would be great if she and Neil came back for the shows 50th…last time we seen Neil he went off to check on his patients and was never shown again…what would be funny for the shows 50th is Neil emerged from a patients room and he exclaims: ‘That was one long examination!!!’ and Maxine asks ‘Who the Hell are you?’…oh, the patient in that room turns out to be… Read more »

I really don’t like Rafe or Galen Gering at all so that pairing was all Chrishell working her talent.

I like Chrishell, but for some reason, she just didn’t click with anyone on DOOL. She always seemed to be sleepwalking through her scenes. I don’t fault her for that, but the way she was written/directed left a lot to be desired.
Hope she finds a role that she’s better suited for. But NOT at Y&R.

Sad to see Chrishell leaving Days, recast Chloe with Chrishell she would be great as the new Chloe on The Young and The Restless.

I’ve been a fan of Chrishell’s since she was on AMC and I thought she did a good job on Days. I liked her with Rafe, but I’ve had the feeling for a few weeks now that the show was pulling away from them as a couple and now I know why. IMO, the show took too long to figure out Jordan’s backstory, and we know from previous tweets that TPTB changed her story at least once before revealing it to the audience. After watching this week’s shows, I can’t believe that the original plan was for Jordan to run… Read more »

I am surprised to read she is leaving, considering we are losing Allison Sweeney, Eileen Davidson and James Scott. The show needs an infusion of new blood and hope the writers do not see Eve and Theresa as its future. Please bring back Melanie, Stephanie, Phillip, Chloe, Mimi, Belle and Shawn.

Wouldn’t be surprised to hear if Galen is next to depart. Without Sami, Jordan, and Gabi what is tying him to the canvas anymore besides his baby niece and his “fling” Kate? Corday strongly hinted recently that there is about to be a huge cast shakeup and a lot of new stories to which I say…. good! It’s been the same 15-20 characters for far to long. Time for some new blood. They can offer recurring to a lot of people like they did to Lucas and still weave them in and out but get some new characters and stories… Read more »

Well Salem needs at least two cops– we can’t have poor Hope solving all the crime in town can we? And when I saw Rafe and Nicole having their heart to heart at the Brady’s pub I wondered perhaps there were going to pair them together, at least for the short term anyway— But I worry when you mentioned a big shake coming is coming– I remember when they did that with one of their many serial killer stories where so many in town were killed off even Alice Horton— it backfired and eventually all those people were returned alive… Read more »

I remember the big cast shakeup in 79/80 when several Horton family members were written out, the Anderson family killed off or sent out of town(Linda Anderson was the Nicole Walker of the 1970s) and many more…and it backfired…many loyal fans quit watching and the ratings fell even further(i stopped watching for some time and several of my family members never tune in again)…it took a few years for the show to recover…i thought the Salem Strangler storyline was well done and suspenseful…most killed off were useless characters…they should revisit that storyline for the shows 50th!!!

I was in absolute heaven when it was announced that she’d grace, ME, with she’s such a lovely person… she owns when she’s right their oye! it’s with dire misgiving… when their are only 4 serials to employ her 1 1/2 year run on… Read more »

y n r does not need any more characters taking screen time away from the established characters we love!, y n r needs to bring nina back as a foil for jill in the chancellor set!
and speaking of bringing back loved characters days needs to bring back carrie and austin or belle and shaun d and never mind boring us for two years with mysterious new characters who really have no mystery to be discovered!

Not sad to see her go. Her storyline dragged out so long to the point where no one really cared what her “secret past” was. The writers are to blame. I don’t wish unemployment on anyone, but sadly she was was a boring character and needed to go sooner.

Really sad about what Days has become. After reading Ken Corday’s interview, it’s pretty obvious he doesn’t care what his viewers care about. There is no romance at all. They gave us Eric and Nicole for almost two solid years and now nothing. They have made Eric so hateful. Daniel is in every story line. Eve is suppose to be Shane’s daughter and she looks entirely too old. Jordan and Rafe had such potential, ruined. B.J. And Paige is ridiculous. Jennifer is laughable. My prediction is a Days will not be renewed after it’s 50th anniversary.

This character never clicked. Even her romance with Rafe seemed rushed and pointless. Bringing on her brother & step-father added nothing to the storyline. I found her friend Sheryl a more compelling character…at least she was giving Lucas some story.

Stause may have been good on AMC but on days she just made this constant face that made her look like she was having digestive issues.

Her character never caught on. Adding Clyde and Ben actually made things worse IMO. I think she was more interesting when she first came on. Not sad to see Jordan go. Wish Chrishell the best.

Enjoyed Chrishell Stause as Jordan on Days. She will be missed. I wish her well. Also hope if an opportunity to return to Salem as Jordan presents itself, she would be will to return and reprise the role.

I liked Jordan and Rafe together. Jordan was good for Rafe. Was looking forward to Rafe learning of Jordan’s past and seeing what he would do with that situation.

I really like Chrishell! She’s a talented and beautiful actress, but her character didn’t really click. Her storyline doesn’t seem to be going anywhere and it’s taken months to pan out which has made it pretty boring. Plus, her pairing with Rafe was a complete miss for me (mostly because I can’t stand Rafe or Galen Gering). Her character didn’t seem to be going anywhere, so I’m okay with her exit. I really hope Y&R snaps her up, maybe as a new character that Adam met during his absence. Or maybe they could bring her in as Chelsea’s long lost… Read more »

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.

DAYS Emily O’Brien Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

She has been a polarizing character since her arrival in Salem, with some fans screaming Gwen is sucking up too much airtime.  HOWEVER, the performances by Emily O’Brien (Gwen) show an actress on top of her craft who can play, as Gwen called herself, “A miserable, vindictive bitch”, or a young woman so deeply-emotionally wounded that you might just come around and eventually feel some empathy for her.

Last week, while the soaps were pre-empted for most of the week due to the senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, DAYS posted all of its weekly episodes online on NBC.com, the NBC app, or on the Peacock streaming platform, and O’Brien’s work was a standout.

It all came to a boiling point when Laura (Jaime Lyn Bauer) and Gwen have the long-awaited confrontation in Gwen’s room at the Salem Inn, where O’Brien goes from Gwen baiting Laura to tell her dirty secret of her long-ago affair with Jack (Matthew Ashford), to her utter anger at how because of it, Laura trashed Gwen’s entire life.

 

Laura reveals the guilt she felt for sleeping with Jack, so much so, that she would do anything to save Jennifer (Cady McClain) and Jack’s marriage.  In delight at getting to the root of the truth, Gwen responds: “You slept with Jack? That is just perfect! My father slept with his mother-in-law!”

Then, Laura shares how it happened.  They were both at the “Meadows” finding their ‘truest selves’ and they were both using other names – she, Monica and he, Clark, and Laura had never seen a photo of Jack before to know it was him!  Gwen wants to burst out in hysterical laughter, but then she becomes filled with rage knowing that if Laura hadn’t bought off her birth mother, Tiffany, her own life would have been very different.  She goes on to say that she and Abigail (Marci Miller) might even be close as sisters, but instead of “borrowing her clothes, she borrowed her husband” alluding to sleeping with Chad (Billy Flynn).  Next, Gwen wants to make Laura pay and lets Laura know that, “All the damage that you did, can’t be undone.” When Laura tries to leave, Gwen stops her and says in no uncertain terms, “I want revenge, because you ruined my life and you’re not going to get away with it!”

Photo: JPI

Next, we see that there had been a struggle with Laura dead on the floor bleeding out of her head.  A freaked-out Gwen does not know what to do.  She realizes she will be accused of murder.  With no one in town to call, she decides to call her father, Jack.  When he shows up at the Salem Inn, Jack is shocked, and grief-stricken to see his mother-in-law, dead.  Gwen swears to Jack this was an accident and that she did not kill Laura, and that he has to believe her.  Jack decides he will stand by his daughter.  Gwen wants to get rid of the body, Jack says he can’t be involved in a cover-up, so he calls Rafe (Galen Gering).  When Rafe arrives at the crime scene he is very suspicious of Gwen, and takes her down to the station.

Scene after scene, O’Brien layered her performances with venomous and ominous undertones, illustrating a woman with so much emotional baggage who becomes desperate to save herself.  For all these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Emily’s work, The Power Performance of the Week.
