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?

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.

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.

Raven Bowens is the New Chanel on DAYS

There has been a casting switcheroo at Days of our Lives.   Precious Way is out in the role of Chanel Dupree and the part had been recast.

According to Soap Opera Digest, look for Bowens to first air on-screen on the July 6th episode.  Apparently, she has been taping at the DAYS set since April.

Raven has previously appeared on All Rise, Insecure, The New Edition Story and Future Man.

You can follow her on Instagram here.

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.
