I DID NOT expect this – now interviews !!!! with the cast

Mr. Michael Fairman . you are so eloquent… you are so in the trenches for all of us out here just chomping at the bit.

there are so many of us who are CELEBRATING @DAYS… it would seem like it’s DAYS fans who have been to the rodeo and/or languished with this show… and to see the sun rise and back in the saddle.

LOL… oy – I am having so much fun “living” in Salem again. this show from start to finish is a full hour of treat

Ron Carlivati and his writing team who all contribute to this show.

Salute

#1. Billy Flynn and Marci Miller .

my favorite and FUNNEST winsome twosome. yeah, they make – love – new again

the repertoire , between the two of you… astonishing

as I’ve long posted.. and love telling

the way Chad and Abs.. respond to each other… finishing each other sentences and the body language that goes with their acting. whet the senses.

@Billy . the bottom line.. for this genre… is what you have w/ Marci. spades

sure it’s still new and inviting… you have the DIMera mystique that will never go away

as for Rob Scott Wilson – a cult figure. Yeah, i’ll bite… he set aflame.. the Will story.. and with the whole production behind him.. I can’t help but thank his acting. as he does his job.. and it’s up to the cast as a whole to “finish” what he starts

Chad and Abs… knock me out… remember

whatever the outlook… with and beyond… @DAYS is on fire. I LOVE THEM TO BITS

Judi Evans should most definitely receive an Emmy nomination for the doppelgänger story. She was wonderful. I’ve been impressed by her since I started watching Days. She should be in front burner stories much more often.

Doug and Julie remain my all time favorite super couple…Bill and Susan add a touch of class to every scene they are in…The King and Queen of soaps!!!…off topic..Ann Wedgeworth who played Angela Talbot on Edge Of Night and Lahoma Vane Lucas on Another World/Somerset and done movies and was in several prime time series such as Three’s Company, Filthy Rich and Evening Shade has passed away at age 83…she was a huge talent and a big favorite of mine!!!

My lady love is , by all accounts ( with all due respect ) looks HEALTHY

God Bless

Days is my mom’s soap so I kind of know what’s happening because I’m often with her when she’s watching–I NEVER expected it to be this good with RC as Headwriter after GH was such a hot mess with him at the writing helm. The other writers must be supporting him quite a bit, luckily, and working as a team. There are so many things on this show that GH is lacking: 3 SuperCouples on the front burner, a young gay love triangle on the front burner, a riveting socially relevant police story on the front burner and ALL involving core characters. And that’s just for starters. The cameos by Ben and Susan, the new character played by GH’s Tyler Christopher (who GH chose not to resign), AND the reopening of Doug’s Place are all outstanding decisions.

If GH were half as good as this, I would’ve tuned in but it languishes and now I want it ALL from GH too. The bar is set higher.

So lapsed Days fans, tune in and give it a shot.

@JMER… Hello mother – you know best

Thank you, Michael!

Koslow and Pengliss – the dream team

they have been layering their characters with so much color…

the nuanced delivery with equal script: the stars are aligning

the DiMera Mystique is enchanting.. and made real with both Andre and Kate personal lives .. whether clashing… make believe… and understanding each other… yet playing your hand @ for the ultimate purpose.. Business before pleasure… really?

Judi Evans and Lucas Adams .

Adrienne and Bonnie are ROCKING it. Judi Evans personality… is so full . I ADORE her to bits.

yeah, I have to concede with RC and posts… she belongs with Justin… which to my delight.. this threesome are bringing everything to the table.

I am so happy to be seeing much more of Bryan Datillo Lucas.

ie: Tripp … Steve son and his step mother Kayla. this is what I’m waiting for… the chemistry Tripp has with Kayla… a united front with newfound Mother and son.

PS: she is so cute in this promo. at the right angle.. I see Christie Brinkley…

it’s all Judi Evans.

if you look at Marci Miller… i’m reminded of Cheryl Tiegs

James Reynolds and Vanessa Williams

I don’t know what … they were channeling… they did not have to

much to do without making this story headline or topical event. THIS IS MY THEO

all that needs to be going on.

the Carver familial.. bar none.. the best on daytime.

the close knit cohesive bond… bar none.

Abe / Valerie / Eli / Lani / Theo

i’m so happy that RC continues to flesh out and bring shades of color. without color we’d be black and white

I’m happy to marquee.. this has never been a token familial on this show. what solid wonderful actors

Judith Chapman Confirms She Is Back On DAYS And As Leo’s Mom

Exciting news DAYS fans, those rumblings were true! Judith Chapman will be playing the trouble-making Leo Stark’s (Greg Rikaart) mother on Days of our Lives.  And that reunites Chapman with Rikaart as mother and son.

As soap fans know, they played Gloria and Kevin Fisher on The Young and the Restless for many years together.  Now they will be playing a new mother/son dynamic duo in Salem. But, just what kind of twisted relationship might they have, since Leo has given clues that she was a bad mom?

Soap Opera Digest revealed that Judith will play Diana.   Her first airdate will be on January 29th.  DAYS fans know Judith from her time as Angelica Deveraux from 1989-1991, and most recently when she returned to the show for the 2018 Halloween episode doing a guest-turn as Angelica AKA Satan in Hattie’s (Deidre Hall) nightmare.

Chapman confirmed her arrival on the Salem scene in a tweet today, stating “And I don’t have to keep the secret either Mitch Sandusky! What a GREAT way to start 2019… More articles to come in TV Guide Magazine and Soap Opera Digest… and to be reunited with my TV son.

Diana will have a past with John Black (Drake Hogestyn), which could cause trouble for John and Marlena’s wedded bliss.

So, excited to know Judith will once again tear up the soap-screen, but this time back on DAYS? Comment below.
