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!!!

Wish I could have been there!

Kassie DePaiva & Eric Martsolf : “Eve & Brady”

I just had to watch this last night… to see how Kassie is faring

she has a beautiful glow about her

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

God Bless

I’ve gotten high on this subject

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

@DAYS is doing a smash up bang up job in spotlighting just how good this show is

WHAT a GREAT post

i’m thrilled for DAYS and the fans of

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

Days of our Lives New Gabi, Cherie Jimenez, Debut Date Revealed; Shares She First Auditioned for Role 15 Years Ago

In a not-then-but-now real-life story, Days of our Lives incoming Gabi Hernandez, actress Cherie Jimenez took to Instagram on Friday after it was revealed by Deadline, that her first airdate as the recast Gabi is next week on June 27th!

Jimenez has replaced longtime DAYS star, Camila Banus in the role. Previously, Banus made the decision to step away from the part after taking on the role in 2010. Camila was with the series on and off through 2023. To facilitate her exit, Gabi was sent to prison for the murder of Li Shin, only she didn’t commit the crime.

As for her time so far at DAYS, Jimenez added,”These past 7 months I have worked harder than I ever have and now I get to share it with the world. Everyday I walk onto set I am in awe that I’ve been given the opportunity to live my dream. I get to work with the most phenomenal & hardworking cast and crew I’ve ever had the honor to work alongside.”

Jimenez, thanked among others the series producer, director and writers for trusting in her including: Janet Drucker, Noel Maxam, Ron Carlivati and Ken Corday, and her agents for helping her along the way in her show business journey.

Now 15 years later at 36 years old the universe told me I was now ready to step into this role…Thank you ✨ …I am just beginning ✨”

So, are you looking forward to the debut of Cherie as the new Gabriella Hernandez DiMera? Comment below.

Arianne Zucker Reflects Back on the ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape with Donald Trump, and Speaks to Her Exit from Days of our Lives

It’s been eight years, but somehow seems like ages ago, that Arianne Zucker was thrust into the mainstream public limelight, unfortunately not for her work as Nicole on Days of our Lives, but for the Access Hollywood taped that surfaced when former president Donald Trump  and current Republican nominee, visited the set of the (then) NBC soap opera, and met Zucker.

The tape captured a hot mic moment between Trump and then ‘Access’ host Billy Bush inside of their bus which featured lewd remarks about Zucker between the two men.

Speaking on the moment, Zucker opened about it on Rachel Uchitel’s Miss Understood podcast, where the video version of the interview is now on Uchitel’s You Tube Channel. Back in 2005, Arianne was the scene partner with Trump in his Apprentice/Days of our Lives crossover appearance, because her character of Nicole was at the time a gold-digger.

Zucker shared of her on set experience with Trump from 2005, “I had a great experience. He was lovely, and I had no idea anything behind the scenes was happening. So, it never affected me.” Next in October 2016, Arianne says she it got a call from her manager at the time when the Access Hollywood tapes came to light and that is when she first heard about the situation.

The actress and life coach reflected back, “Everybody has spoken poorly about somebody in their lifetime. I don’t care who you are, everybody has, it’s just people get caught on camera doing it. Unfortunately, that happens all the time. And if you’ve ever gone to a fraternity party, these things happen. So (when she later read the taped comments) I’m going, ‘sounds like something my fraternity guys I know would say.’ But I just didn’t see it in the way that people were seeing it.’”

Expressing why she never made an official comment when the press were asking for one, Arianne revealed, “I didn’t make a comment though, because I was in fear of losing my job. So I didn’t say anything.”  She added, “I felt attacked by the media because I knew all they wanted. I mean, the biggest thing was to get Trump off the ballot. I was like, that is not my job.”

Later, Arianne explained she felt she received no protection from the situation. “I got no apology from my place of employment. I really got no apology from NBC. I felt I had no protection. ”

DAYS fans are counting down and not happily that about six weeks from now, on July 29th, when Zucker makes her on-screen exit from Days of our Lives. After being fired for standing up to Corday Productions for on set sexual harassment and discrimination charges, the actress formally filed a lawsuit she has brought against her former employer which includes charges of wrongful termination.

Zucker said on her upcoming departure from DAYS, “I will not say how I leave the show. I do respect that we don’t want to share that. We want the fans to be excited and enticed.” However, Arianne confirmed that the character of Nicole is not ‘killed-off”.

So, what do you think of Arianne’s comments reflecting back on the Access Hollywood tapes media frenzy with Donald Trump, and her upcoming exit from DAYS? Weigh-in. But first, check out Ari on Rachel’s podcast below.

DAYS Dan Feuerriegel on EJ Keeping Eric From His Child, “He’s in the Deep End … There’s No Coming Back for Him Now”

On Days of our Lives, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) has been reunited with her biological son, baby Jude. Her husband, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), is now keeping a major secret, and in order to keep it from coming out he had to get Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) out of Salem, and keep both Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) and Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart) quiet and at bay.

However, as in any good soap opera, time is running out for EJ. What will happen when Nicole and Eric (Greg Vaughan) find out that EJ is not the little one’s biological father, but Eric is? And, what will happen when they realize EJ knew the truth and hid it from them?

This is just one item in a laundry list of skullduggery committed by EJ since he has been in Salem. With Arianne Zucker set to exit on-screen on July 29th, it looks like we are heading into the home stretch of the baby switch storyline.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Dan Feuerriegel to get his take on the situation and what it has been like working with Greg and Ari in the story.

Dan shared on EJ’s despicable decision to pretend he is Jude’s bio-dad, “I know I’m a terrible human being, but I love playing a terrible human being.” Feurriegel added, “Oh, he’s in the deep end. Like, there is no coming back for him now.”

The DAYS star also noted if EJ had done anything more nefarious to Sloan, his character might not ever be able to come back from that. “There’s only so much hatred EJ can get from the viewers that it probably would’ve been a bridge too far for me to just make her (Sloan) disappear,” clarified Dan.

As to his time working with Arianne Zucker as his on-screen wife, Dan had noting but praise for her. Feuerriegel expressed, “I loved working with her. She’s so good. She’s an amazing actress. She’s fantastic. Every scene that I did with her, I didn’t have to do anything because I just rode on the coattails of what she did. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her.”

Dan also had high marks for his on-screen nemesis, Greg Vaughan, “Greg is fantastic, like everybody in the storyline was amazing. Greg’s amazing … Ari’s amazing … Jessica was fantastic and that’s what made it work. I’m very grateful to have worked with every single one of them.”

On soap operas and especially on Days of our Lives, when someone exits, or ‘dies’ on-screen that doesn’t mean goodbye forever, and Dan knows this too. In regards to anyone who leaves Salem, the actor joked, “I’m not going to say the doors closed, because you never say never, especially in Hollywood or on a soap. I mean, I’ve come back and I was like two inches shorter and (with) a completely different face.”

So, how do you think Eric will find out that Jude is really his son, and that EJ has been lying to keep Nicole? Let us know in the comment section, but first Check out our conversation with Dan from the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.
