Former All My Children favorite, Chrishell Stause (Ex-Amanda) has been teasing on her Twitter account of late that she is joining a soap, but could not reveal yet which one or anything about it!

Well today all that changed thanks to TV Line!  According to their sources, Chrishell has joined the cast of the NBC soap, Days of our Lives as a brand new character and in a contract role!

In addition, TV Line learned that Chrishell reported to the Salem set last week and will be debuting sometime in early August, given the lead time of how far ahead Days of our Lives taped episodes!

Stause also revealed via tweet today,  “So happy that they finally announced it-I couldn’t be happier! My bags are packed-moving to Salem! #DOOL”

OK, so who do you think Chrishell will play?  Who is she coming to town for? And, who will she be paired with romantically on DAYS? Weigh-in!

This is amazing news!! I have thought Days should add some female power to the 20’s and 30’s set for a while now. With the addition of Chrishell and Jen Lilley, it’s going to fill in that gap that has existed with just Abby, Gabi, Sami, and Nicole to watch. I am so excited to hear about their characters, and their storylines!! Awesome job Days!!

Chrishell Stause as Sarah Horton? Jen Lilley as either Jeannie Donovan or recast of Stephanie Johnson?

Between Jen Lilley and Chrishell, I’ll have to start watching for the first time since my grands used to look after me in the 80s.

Chrishell should be an old girlfriend of E.J.s. Almost everytime a couple gets ready to marry on soaps someone or something comes to ruin their happiness, and i dont see E.J. and Sami living happily for long without someone coming between them. I fell Jen lilley would make a good Melanie! But i think she’ll play someone new? Now the show needs to bring in some new males other than Vargas to help balance the show! AND give Kayla, Maxine, Roman and Abe more to do plus bring back Patch for Kayla, recast Bo or kill him off then bring… Read more »

Love that she’s coming to Days! I think she’d be fantastic as a new love interest for Rafe. Can’t wait to see their on screen chemistry. Here’s hoping Days pulls us in with a gripping story for Chrishell, I just hate that we have to wait til August to see it.

Yes! Chrishell is my girl. I wish all the best in her career. She is such a lovely person.

You go girl. How brainy are you to know a dud when you see it. You avoided that loser re-boot of AMC. I guess a lot of people out there have never heard that ‘you can’t go home again’. Good luck, I really enjoyed your work on the old and ‘real’ AMC and I’m sure you will bring that to DOOL!

Wow! I’m stoked!

“what” A Hot Babe!

I love her…

very likeable… sexy…

endears your heart.

she was a blast on AMC.

all in all….

with this add and Jenn Lilley….

what can I say….

DAYS needs NEW WRITERS…

this is TALENT.

Patrick

Lets get big Lucas some screen time….

romance with either Chrishelle or Jen…

i agree though…. Chrishelle would be hot with Eric as well.

I think Chrishell will play either Cassie Brady or Emily Hudson.

Neither. She’s playing a new character, so Cassie is a no-go.

No you don’t know if she is playing a new character. TV line has no idea if she is a new character or a recast. The only people who know is Chrishell and the cast and crew. Days is keeping a tight lid on stuff.

A female Brady is returning and rumors are its Cassie. There is no need for Emily. I have no intrest in that character,

I’m going with Cassie Brady.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Several other sources, aside from TVLine have confirmed she’s a new character and not a recast.

First of all Days is keeping a very tight lid on this stuff, so they are not going to tell these people if she is a recast or a new character. Plus they might have told them that so they don’t guess who she is playing until they are already to release the info. There is no need for a new character she needs to be Cassie Brady not a new character. I’m still going with she is playing Cassie Brady because a younger female Brady is coming back to Salem and it sounds like Cassie Brady and Chrishell looks… Read more »

She doesn’t NEED to be Cassie Brady. So it’s clear you’re hyping your hopes up for the huge potential of being let down.

Whatever the writers feel is right, and according to A LOT of creditable sources, it’s a NEW character.

Madison
Guest

First of all she does need to be Cassie Brady she looks a lot like Cassie and Lauren Koslow. There is no need for her play a new character. Yes I want her to play Cassie but I’m not hyping my hopes for a potential of being let down. I’ve been hearing rumors Cassie is coming back. Days is keeping such a tight lid on stuff that the only people who know who CS is playing is Chrishell and the rest of the Days cast and crew. No one else knows for sure. I guess we will all find out… Read more »

No she doesn’t need to be Cassie. You’re confusing need with want. NBC/DAYS does not need to announce anything. They don’t want people knowing.

Days, Days, Days, why are you bringing on new characters when you can’t write for the core group you already have? New characters aren’t going to solve your problem– you need new writers- writers that know and work with the history of the show, and the characters that are there- then bring in some newbies– but at this point, anything different will be refreshing- hoping I’m still watching in August when this new gal shows up.

If you read the article, she’s coming in as someone new.

I for one am excited! I think Chrishell will fit right into the atmosphere at DAYS. And I agree with a former poster, the show needs more girls in the 20s age bracket. Jen Lilley and Chrishell are great choices. Though I didn’t particularly love either in their past roles, I love DAYS, and I have nothing against these chicks acting wise or personally, so I’m excited to see what they’ll bring to DAYS.

Aubrey

If Chrishell is a new character then I bet she is Emily Hudson. I think Jen Lilley is the new physical therapist Keara Baldwin.

I hope one of them is Cassie Brady.

Great! Hopefully they can get rid of Kristian Alfonso now. She’s had no storyline since Peter Reckell departed. Again, this actress isn’t a favorite of mine — she couldn’t get along with Crystal Chappell or Robert Kelker-Kelly. Total diva whose day is long over.

Maybe she is Lucas’s unseen former fiancee, Autumn?

Chrishell is a beautiful performer. I hope DAYS does not waste the talents of her and Jen Lilley By making the monumental mistake they made with Sarah Brown as Madison. They brought her on as a nobody…connected to nobody…and ultimately meaningless to everybody. If they bring these two girls on with family ties and connections, they can become integral. There are so many females out of town with connections…Melanie, Sarah Horton, Donovan girls, Cassie Brady, Belle, etc. The current regime is not the best at honouring and using the history of the show unless it happened ten minutes ago. These… Read more »

there’s a lot of truth to what you wrote….

it’s all up to the writers…. give Jenn and Chriselle an immediate connection… and their “acting” chops will do the rest….

it’s like … ??? the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing… ? and so on, and so on… as with the feet…

just saying…. for the LOVE of Days… Puhlease…. saying… for Sarah Brown… who had the ability… and the writing squandered her talent..

these two ladies… have signed on for DAYs…and we, the fans… are excited.

She is probably Jeannie Donovan, and Jen Lilley is likely the new physical therapist, Keara Baldwin. I hope they are new for Lucas and Brady to date. Leave Rafe with Kate for the time being, or put him with Nicole. I think Rafe will end up with Sami again in a few months anyways.

Ann

I hope she will be a love interest for Rafe. He needs a real love interest, one who loves him and only him. He deserves that and a child of his own. I can’t wait to see how things will play out on screen. Perhaps she will turn out to be Emily!

I was just thinking that there aren’t any love interests for Lucas. Looking forward to finding out. I think SOD said she had scenes with Rafe.

Was never a fan of her’s on AMC. But I’m willing to give her a chance to open up and win me over.

Would prefer seeing SJB back as Madison, TB back as Ava and NL back as Taylor!

I agree, Madison should come back, having never died. It would shake things up for Brady and Kristen. Would like Taylor to return for Lucas, or maybe Brady as well.

Yeah because there never is enough. It’s a shame they can’t find a love interest for Cameron.

Madison

I’m hearing she is a Cassie Brady recast and she is going to be paired with Rafe and its going to be a big story with Rafe who falls for Kate and Roman’s daughter not to mention Sami and Carrie’s little sister.

Rafe sure does have a thing for the women in Roman’s life. All 3 of his daughters and his ex-wife.

I really hope Chrishell is Cassie Brady.

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
