Last night, Days of our Lives and Venice creator and star, Crystal Chappell posted her very first V-blog entry on the Venice the Series website. And in it, Chappell gives an update on season three of Venice, the departure of Kim Turrisi from Open Book Productions and Venice,  and a few interesting life tidbits.  Here is an excerpt!

Chappell: “First off, as you know, Kimmy has decided to move on to new and exciting ventures. She’s still very much a part of the V family. It wouldn’t be the same without her. I love my dear friend and I have the utmost respect for her talent and contributions to this show. Needless to say, Kimmy and I will be sharing Jack and Goose for many years to come! Now, it’s hard for me to share Venice news without commenting on my own personal life since the two are intertwined. My family and I are renovating our central coast home and are planning to move back in the fall, I’m very excited to live on the coast again although I’ll be in LA quite often.

Venice IT has been working overtime and doing an amazing job! Hope you like what we have and what we’re adding! You wanted Venice shot glasses, you got it! Hiccup! We’ll be having a promotion…t-shirts signed by cast members! I’ve been in touch with the V west coasters and we’re having a Venice merch signing party that we’ll film and put up on our youtube soonish after…! I promised…beverages…ahem.
We’re getting our crew together and planning an early September shoot. Everyone’s on board. I’m so grateful! Couldn’t do it without them. Amazing cast of friends who are so willing to do whatever they can for Venice…and you.”

So are you ready for a new dose of Venice and the debut of Chappell’s web series The Grove?

She is truly one of a kind.

Glad that CC is keeping us warm with the Vblog. She’s the best.

Oh yeah, I’m ready for season 3 of Venice. I’m hoping that season 3 Gina will be a little more like season 1 Gina, both attitude and clothing. I understand why Gina was miserable in season 2, but Crystal has such great comedic timing, it would be fabulous to get back to that. I’m also looking forward to the Grove. I’ll be giving it a try.

^^I liked the season 2 clothing. And many fans disliked season 1 Gina’s attitude. She didn’t deserve Ani when she was acting like that.

Can’t wait for VS3 and the Grove! I love that CC’s trying to keep all of us involved by starting these weekly blogs. She’s such a sweetheart!

Very thankfull to crystal for keeping us in the know about venice and the park.I like gina in season 1, season 2 gina was to depressed and mopey,ani wasn’t worth all that torment and selfloathing,she was a clinger and a doormat which laura is finding out about . Hopefully gina will find some happyness in season 3,with or without ani.

Can’t wait for V3, or the Grove. I know they will both rock. Kimmy will go on to great things also . Kimmy and Crystal are both amazing.

So excited for Venice Season 3 and The Grove. Love that CC is keeping us all in the loop. You’re the best, CC!

Yeah, CC is the best love her.

Where is “central coast”? Is she still living in CA?

Yes, central coast is CA but she doesn’t get more specific for obvious reasons.

I actually never watched Venice but reading the blog each week has me very interested.

DAYS Arianne Zucker On Baby Switch Storyline: “It’s Heartbreaking to Watch What Nicole Has Been Going Through”

On Days of our Lives, a soap opera which has had more than its fair share of baby switch storylines over the years, viewers have watched in anguished now that Nicole Walker DiMera (Arianne Zucker) is the next victim of this heinous plot twist.

Making it all the more ironic is years ago, Nicole illegally took Sami’s daughter, Sydney after she suffered a miscarriage and tried to pass it off as her own, only for it to backfire in now classic scenes between Zucker and Alison Sweeney.

Now in 2023, it’s Nicole’s turn to have a ‘switch’ perpetrated on her, this time by Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) and the shifty Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) as the ringmasters.

The baby named “Jude” is actually Eric’s (Nicole’s all-time love) biological son, but Nicole has thought this whole time her baby daddy was EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), her current husband – thanks to more skullduggery from Sloan switching the DNA paternity results.

According to an interview in the latest issue of TV Guide Magazine, posted as an Instagram story on the Days of our Lives official show account,Nicole will get more of a clue as to what what happened behind her back, and to the unthinkable for a mother and her newborn baby, after she holds Eric’s “adopted” son Jude. It is then, she feels a strong bond with the little bundle of joy.  Remember, Nicole gave birth at the side of a road after getting into a car accident when Dimitri (Peter Porte) and Leo (Greg Rikaart) were driving the other care while they were on the run and trying to get to Dr. Rolf’s submarine.  Not the best of circumstances for a new mom, but was later told her baby had died.

Zucker expressed: “She (Nicole) feels there’s a possibility this baby is hers. Nicole knows that Sloan is sly. Nicole has an issue with postpartum depression as we saw with the last baby-switch storyline. She’s going to put all of those things together and think this has to be her baby.”

In the end, the longtime fan favorite, shared, “It’s heartbreaking to watch what Nicole had been going through.” It certainly has! With many Days of our Lives fans screaming “Emmy” for Zucker and Dan Feuerriegel as the “grieving parents.”

So, what do you think about the Nicole/Sloan baby switch storyline? Are you over it and want it to end sooner than later? What do you think about the performance of Arianne Zucker within it? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
