Days Of Our Lives

Crystal Chappell OUT at DAYS! Shows decision not to renew contract!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

More shockers in the soap world continue and this one is heartbreaking!  Crystal Chappell (Carly Manning), whose contract is set to expire in August at Days of our Lives was just informed that the series has decided to not renew her contract.  Chappell took to her husband, actor, Michael Sabatino’s twitter account to announce the news to her legions of fans and twitter followers.

Chappell tweeted, “Using Michael’s phone/Droid’s dead. Want you to know, as I understand it, DOOL has decided not to renew my contract. I’m sad but grateful for the opportunity. I made new friends and got Venice up and running thanks to you. I wish DAYS much success. P.S Not the new writers decision. P.S.S Michael’s phone sucks. Onward! XO”

With shows being canceled, soap stars contracts not being renewed, and fan favorites being let-go, this just reinforces the continuing troubled waters of the daytime landscape. So, how do you feel about Chappell being let-go?  How do you think the writers will have Carly exit Salem? Let us know!

I think its a horrible decision but what should we expect from Days? They allowed Dena Higley to almost destroy the show. Do they not remember how they were at number 3 when Carly returned? Basically what I’m saying is that there idiots.

WooHoo!! Bye…bye Carly (Crystal Chappell). I didn’t care for her being with Bo, there was no chemistry although I have to say I think Crystal starting falling for Peter in real life. I’m glad she is going to be written off. In fact I wish they would show more scenes of Bo and Hope at the hospital so Carly can see. What did Carly expect to be with Bo forever? Nope not with Hope in town….

Marie, why are you starting a terrible rumor about Crystal and Peter? I know your mother taught you better than than. If you can’t say anything nice, stitch your lips shut and break your fingers so you can’t type. That is the most asinine thing I have ever heard. PR and CC are happily married to KM and MS. Take your lies to another board, preferably DR. They would pay for shit like this. Don’t start that here. Of anyone wants to know who starts all the lies my finger is pointed towards Bope fans. The proof came right from… Read more »

How about this Faith L.; I’ve been watching this SOAP since Hope was born. Let me tell you, if Ms. Krisiten hadn’t been such a spoiled girl and left the show for what she thought was bigger and better, there wouldn’t have been a Carly character. Carly and Bo most definitely have way more chemistry than Bo and Hope have for years now. They are the boring ones; exactly how many scenes can one do together. Ask John & Marlena?? The point is to combine the old with the new; I think the Carly character was great and she is… Read more »

I am seriously pissed about this decision. Idiot move made by execs who obviously aren’t listening to the fans. Crystal is one of the most talented people on that show and to be let go when there is still so much story left to be told disgusts me. Let the letter writing begin.

i watched DOOL when kristen was on…. Eileen Davidson…. loved her…. when she left… i lost interest… came back to DOOL when crystal chappel came back… now i’ve lost interest again.. fabulous actresses… intelligent, sexy, and fun to watch… sad that soaps are done…. now i watch old soap clips on you tube… classic soaps… the good ole days… soaps are better than the junk nowadays… “reality” tv comes and goes so fast…. soaps were an everyday gig….

I totally agree with your post designergirl777. More than one idiot is running this ship; probably why they have trouble competing. I wish they’d let me write that show; I’ve watched since before Bo & Hope. I agree with the everyday gig comment also; with that scenario, why do we want to watch something without any “history” behind it. Sorry if K.A. is shrinking up……that was mean.

I am so upset… I have no words. Days of our Lives is absolutely on it’s way out if it doesn’t start LISTENING to the fans. Crystal has a huge vocal fanbase that support Days. Ridiculous decision. I began watching Days in 1990 and left angry and upset with what they did to Carly 1.0 in 1993. Now to return and see it happen all over again is just unbelievable. As a Peter Reckell fan, I am really torn about continuing to watch this show. If I do, it won’t be as a supportive fan of Days, it will be… Read more »

Days has never realized how many fans of Crystal there were in the early 90s or how many more came along with her return. The show is going down with or without Crystal, but it will just be a faster fall now. She is the most talented actress in the business. Every scene she is in just has a higher quality. Apparently, Days doesnt want high quality, or know what to do with it. As a Bo and Carly fan from 20 years ago, I am sad to see this amazing opportunity lost. So much potential with Crystal on the… Read more »

DOOL just blew the return of Carly Manning. To put it bluntly, I do not think they had any idea how to write for an actress of Crystal’s caliber or for someone riding the wave of popularity she had coming to Days. This is a daytime superstar and your bumbing idios at Days blew it. Ken Corday sat on his hands and let Gary Tomlin and Dena Higley ruin Carly’s return and the show period. It is almost as if he just does not care. The daytime landscape has changed and there is no turning back. Crystal will be fine,… Read more »

Carly’s return happened awhile back. Now, I think they blew it, but they blew it some time back. They brought her back and didn’t follow through with a decent storyline for her. Now, the new writers are having to fix everything the old ones destroyed and some people have to go. Unlike a lot of people, though. I don’t think the show is lost without her. She’s a good actress, but I never liked the storylines they gave her. Any. Time. Not just this time. Too much unused potential.

Days had given Crystal poorly written stories and then followed that up with having her prop up other characters. This is an Emmy winning actress who doesn’t even need an Emmy to show how good she is. I came to Days with Crystal Chappel and I will leave with her too. I am looking forward to her new web show “The Grove”, her new production company and will continue to support her in making those, as well as Venice, a success.

Katie
Guest

It definitely shows they aren’t listening to the fans because I know for a fact her fanbase is awesome, writes to them constantly, sends her things to the set and calls/emails. They just don’t listen to us which is why they are at the bottom of the ratings barrel.

Not renewing Crystal Chappell’s contract is THE WORST MISTAKE DOOL could have made. You don’t let your best talent go when you are already in danger of cancellation. In my opinion, this is the final nail in their sarcophagus. As far as Crystal is concerned, she is a force to be reckoned with. Crystal is a beautiful, talented, and smart lady. She already has bigger and better things in the makings. She has a legion of fans that will GO WITH HER and support her in any project that she undertakes. To quote the beautiful lady, “ONWARD” !!!!!!!!!!!

What a huge mistake for Days to even consider letting Crystal Chappell go!!! There were so many intriguing directions they could have taken the story, and they decide to not renew her contract?!

I would watch Crystal Chappell read the phone book…guess I won’t have much of a reason to keep watching Days if they go through with this….

DOOL has not been paying attention. Since Crystal’s return 2009, the ratings have been way up. I guess they really have no idea how many fans actually followed Crystal to DAYS! They’re making a HUGE mistake! Crystal Chappell is just a phenominal actress!! They’re lost!

I don’t think DOOL did Crystal any justice at all. There was so much potential and they blew it. I believe Crystal should be on main stream TV she is of a higher caliber than anything Days could write for her. Look forward to Crystal’s future projects on the web and on TV.

Crystal Chappell is the most gracious, talented actor around. I’ve been watching soaps since they were on radio, I’m old, and I have NEVER seen anyone “knock it out of the park” as an actor like Crystal does. Day after day, no matter how shallow the writing on Days, she gave it her best and that was wonderful to observe. I left Days in 1993 when she left and I will not watch it again when she is gone now. Crystal is being classy about this and I’m trying to be classy too when I really want to say .… Read more »

Dumb decision. I never ever watched Days until Crystal came on it. Now I tape it and watch it the same day(it is on the same time in Detroit as AMC). She is my favorite along with Victor K. and Sami and Molly Burnett. I will hard pressed to continue watching with Crystal leaving. Bad decision.

I feel like I did when they announced the end of AMC and OLTL–cheated. I began watching DOOL strictly because I wanted to watch Crystal Chappell act. It’s been hard waiting over a year for her to finally have a storyline worthy of her skills and now this? Sorry DOOL, I’m just not that hooked into the rest of your cast to stay with you once she’s gone. Soap fans are fickle…and I think you just lost a ton of viewers.

I only read the news on these sites, but had to come out for this one. I stopped watching DAYS years ago because I couldn’t handle the crazy train they were on. I ONLY came back because of Crystal Chappell, hoping they would give her something worth her TALENT! And even though they didn’t (she makes sh!t smell good), I stuck around. Can’t say I didn’t expect this to happen though. So when she last airs, I will stop watching. I need my sanity back! Good luck, Crystal, in your future endeavors…I raise my glass (since I know you love… Read more »

It is just another nail in the coffin for SOAPS in general. Crystal was and continues to be an asset to any show. Sad to see her go, but excited at the thought that it frees her up to do other things. A talent that huge should not be confined to poor writing and the constraints of Network Television. Onward Crystal!!! You RAWK!

I think pretty soon, there won’t be any daytime soap left, but Crystal will always have her fans and she is already embarking and leading on this new journey of good quality webseries genre. People are gonna be following her and her teams’ footsteps. the networks gonna be sorry that they canceled their favorites and soaps. I only went back to watching cuz CC’s on.

30+ year viewer of Days is now gone! Over the years I have watch Days on and off. Loved Carly 1.0 – less than thrilled how they wrote Carly 2.0. They used her to garner publicity off the ending of GL/Otalia story. They put the most talented actress (only Emmy winning actress on that show) used her as a prop. Watch the ratings plummet further – this is the end of Days. I am done with Days. I can thank KC & Company for freeing up the space on my DVR!

I’m so disappointed in this decision by Days! I was hoping with the writing changes that things would turn around for the show and Crystal. But Crystal said it wasn’t the new writers that decided not to renew her contract, so it’s Corday’s blunder. I just don’t understand it at all. She didn’t sink days in the ratings, it was the EJ/Sami/Rafe story that angered fans. Higley didn’t really write a triangle for Carly/Bo/Hope either! It was like Carly and Hope were in different stories! I think they had only one big scene with one another in the year and… Read more »

“the end of Days”: truer words were never spoken! I hurt for CC—for her family, and the paycheck DooL provided… …but truth is, DooL was TORTURE to watch (I tried to be loyal to the show, but SHOULD have just watched Carly clips!). They have a few good actors: John Aniston, Lauren Koslow, Aly Sweeney, and Arianne Zucker (who NEVER phones it in). But overall narrative is so effed up, that even the BEST headwriter would need *at least* a year to turn it around. Without Crystal, I’d be surprised they have even that much time left.

Getting rid of your best talent is a beyond-stupid move. What a

I’m sad for Crystal. That being said, I now will get to quit watching this crap show. Days is the worst written soap I have ever seen. So many talented actors going to waste. When AMC and OLTL got canceled I was shocked it wasn’t Days first. Crystal is to good of an actress. She will be just fine. To DOOL I say, “Good Luck with those ratings.”

I have to ask. You couldn’t quit watching before? I’m not being snarky. I just don’t understand. Never have I ever been so enamoured of an actor’s or actress’ ability that I will watch a show that I consider “crap” to see them. In the same way that if my favorite writer wrote a bad book I won’t read it, or my favorite singer makes a horrible (to me) recording I won’t listen. There’s always other stuff do watch, read, listen to. Other things I can invest my time in. It’s just a way of living I don’t understand, to… Read more »

Was not happy about the news of the firing when I wrote that. I was wrong. I followed most GL actors to other soaps also. I think there are many great talents on DOOl, and I don’t want to see any of them jobless. I hope the writing get better and the show can comeback in the ratings . We have lost way to many soaps already.

Lyn
Guest

I hope the writing on the show comes back a lot. I’m not a big soaps fan. Only watch Days, which I’ve watched from 1965, so I don’t follow actors from soap to soap. I do have favorite actors of course, like I have favorite TV shows or musicians, but I’ve never been a big follower in the since having to see or hear everything someone does.

Mine
Guest

Many of Crystal’s fans are saying they will stop watching . I don’t have to see or hear everything someone does. I do however respect the opinions of others, and their veiwing choices are none of my business. I would never tell anyone how or who to watch. Like I said I do hope the show comes back in the ratings. I love soaps like some people like football or basketball. To many soaps have been canceled. But if the writing does not get better it won’t matter who is on.

TPTB at DOOL are fools for letting Chappell go! She is a fan favorite and talented beyond compare. Her ability to make everyone watching know exactly what she is feeling without having to walk around Salem talking to herself was a breath of wonderfully fresh air! Even more sad is that DOOL underutilized her while she was there! She could have rocked that show… if they had let her!! Looking forward to someone smarter snapping up this daytime icon!!

Hallelujah..ratings have been in a steady decline since she returned and we had to watch her every freaking day for months on end. She’s been given a story probably is there is nothing sympathetic about her portrayal or the character. What a self obsessed selfish 1 toned character she is and was 18years ago. Carly version 1 and Carly version 2 failed big time. The only talent CC has is how to tank a show and get get it cancelled. THANK THE SOAP GODS she’s gone. DOOL can go back to the characters and storylines that made it number 1

Come on. The ratings rose when she arrived and held steady for a long time. It’s this kind of one sided argument that keeps fanwars going strong and hate running high. No one character or pairing makes or breaks a show. Crystal Chappell is a very popular actress. You may not like her, but that doesn’t make her a failure. Carly 1.0 was a huge fan favorite. Bo and Carly WERE described as a supercouple in 1991. And Ken Corday brought Crystal back to capitalize on her talent and the huge fan following he knew she had. Clearly he felt… Read more »

Umm yeah I have been watching the show since 1985 and they were no where near as popular as Bope was back then, and they fell FLAT during their reconnection in 2009! Even though they were a couple throughout 2010, we hardly ever saw them together and in love. Maybe it’s because Bo was still in love with Hope. Oh well none of this matters, Bope wins.

Whatever helps you sleep at night, but the truth remains Carbo was then & is also now as popular as Bope! I watched both times myself, and Bope didn’t compare to Carbo!

The reality Karen, is that Ken Corday, ran scared from telling any plausible story between Bo and Carly … it was not about the lack of chemistry between Peter and Crystal, which of course they have. Kristian Alfonso rides on the popularity of Peter Reckell, and on history … because she is a less than mediocre actress. Funny how even Bo and Hope fans sometimes are confused at what is supposed to be happening on-screen in terms of the “love” between Bo and Hope.

Um Ally Please lets not point fingers at fan bases because if we are being honest the classless acts come form BOTH side. I believe it was a KA fan that just wrote disparaging comments about CC on here, not Carly. If someone lacks something its not because they are a fan of one actor or another its because they lack it within themselves. So if you have an issue with something that someone said please address the individual specifically and not categorize members of a fan base.

We are allowed to insult characters, it is real people like KA and CC that shouldn’t be put down.

I clearly prefer KA and her acting to CC, but I haven’t insulted CC. I just hate Carly the character on a show.

Hold on here! I don’t know about other fans but my not liking Carly’s character has nothing to do with her and Bo for me. It had to do with the quality of the writing. They never really gave CC a chance to live up to her acting potential. And I don’t know about other readers of this forum, but I don’t think liking or not liking a character on a show has anything to do with being high or low class or having good or poor taste. I’m sure we all have different reasons for watching the show. I… Read more »

It’s low class when other fans have to come on here & gloat when Crystal’s fans are upset she was let go. Have respect!

I wasn’t gloating. I am saying that a show is more than the addition or deletion of one actress and saying as well that they could have done a better job with her part. I see a lot of near bashing of actors and people on this board and a lot of attitudes are off-kilter. I didn’t think Carly’s character was well-written, and thought that a better job could have been done is all.

You jumped in on a comment where I was talking about other posters making negative & gloating remarks, it had nothing to do with you when you posted. And I made myself clear that there are those coming on here being happy & gloating Crystal was let go after you made comment!

Not only is Crystal Chappell out but so is Louise Sorel. In an interview with TV Guide, she says that Deidre Hall & Drake Hogestyn are returning this summer and maybe beyond. I imagine there will be more casualities so DOOL can afford to bring back major stars to save the soap.

Crystal Chappell will land on her feet just fine. She’s an awesome actress. Maybe, Y&R?

Stupid move!!!!! Ms. Chappell is extremely talented, but she was being wasted on Days. She will find success elsewhere.

I have to laugh at the 3 commenters that are happy about Crystal’s departure…I’m pretty sure they will be the only 3 people left watching the show once all CC’s fan depart! 😉

In all honesty, I LOVE Crystal, but I stopped watching DOOL during the whole night-time Hope crapfest…the poor writing and directing ruined that show and Crystal will do well to get as far away from that sinking ship as possible!

If you want to see a quality soap done right- watch Venice! And I’m sure The Grove will deliver as well!

Very well said Kimi!!!

CC is an excellent actress, no need for her to be in a mediocre show. Time to move on…..

I agree with Jaime well said! No need for negativity, Crystal is well in getting away from that sinking ship!

Not true. I can think of 5 people who care neither way about CC who will continue to watch. Probably more. We were here before her and although we will miss the actress, won’t quit watching because she is gone. We didn’t quit when other major players left and we won’t quit now. We’ll wait, knowing that soaps are cyclical and the best/worst always return.

Oh, the 5 people are all people whom I know personally. CC’s addition to the cast didn’t change their viewing habits. Her deletion from the cast won’t change their viewing habits. None of us are watching the show because some actress or actor is on the show. We’re all busy people. For us, DOOL is a time to relax, laugh,take a break from our normal day to day lives. . .

I agree with you Lyn! cc isn’t the best thing ever to hit DOOL. I watched long before her and I will continue to watch after her.

Crystal Chappell is the best actress ever to be on Days, and her absence will make a difference! Days low ratings will continue to fall!

WTF, I only watched the show because she returned. CC is the best.

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
