Aren’t the guests going to be guarded as they know they’re being filmed? I just don’t think it’s a necessary show. Let them get together for their potlucks without the cameras.

EXACTLY! Why do I want to watch people eating and talking about themselves or stuff I’m not privy to? I want to be entertained or educated when I watch TV. I guess it’s a relatively cheap show to make and that’s probably why it was bought. Love Ali S, but I just can’t see how this even makes it on any radar as a TV show. Slim pickings.

Why does everything have to be REALITY, when of course we all know there is nothing REAL about any of it? Everyone wants to be on tv-I prefer shows with gorgeous actors (OLTL) to “real” people. Why do doctors who are already DOCTORS, need to have a tv show? And all these others on the awful new ABC replacement shows-most of them are already on other shows! Taking away jobs from our beloved actors & crews, why so they can be on 2 tv shows? No interest in this new show from Ali. I love her on Days but that’s… Read more »

Disagree this girl has some flicker, fire on her eyes..she is not boring that being said this show seems useless and boring, not her..Denise Richards will be on it maybe if Charlie Sheen would make a guest appearance, it would become exiting (but he never will..lol..i can dream..) and it would be a hit instantly ! But no it will be only d-list/c-list mom celeb who talk about food or cosmetics or pregnancy..shallow and boring, Alison and..Denise you can do better girls.

Cady McClain IN As DAYS Jennifer Temporarily Replacing Melissa Reeves

Rumors that have been swirling are confirmed true.  Cady McClain is coming to Salem and Days of our Lives to replace Melissa Reeves temporarily as the new Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  The casting news was confirmed by a Days spokesperson, according to Soap Opera Digest.

Daytime fans recall, Cady is a two-time Daytime Emmy winner and has previously appeared as Dixie on All My Children, Rosanna on As the World Turns and Kelly on The Young and the Restless.  McClain has already begun filming as Jennifer.

Reeves, who commutes from Nashville to Los Angeles to tape episodes of Days of our Lives, decided not to return to set when the NBC soap opera resumed production earlier this month due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,

In addition, Melissa became a grandmother last month with her daughter Emily’s first child, and now soon will welcome her son Larry’s first child later this month, which is another reason Reeves chose to stay put in Tennessee.

So, what do you think of the Jennifer switcheroo? Excited to see what Cady brings to the role? Comment below.

Knots Landing longtime fan favorite, Kevin Dobson (Mack McKenzie) has passed away at the age of 77.  The actor’s death was first reported by the United Veterans Council of San Joaquin County’s Facebook page.  Dobson died on Sunday, September 6th via “medical complications”.

Marci Miller Opens Up About Her Decision to Return to DAYS and Her Concerns Replacing Kate Mansi

This week will mark the return of Marci Miller in the role of Abigail Deveraux DiMera on Days of our Lives.

The popular actress, who had been nominated for two Daytime Emmys in the Lead Actress category during her initial run on the NBC soap opera, revealed some of the complex emotions she had in determining whether or not to come back to Salem as detailed in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now.

Once again, Miller is taking over the role from her predecessor, Kate Mansi.  As DAYS fans know. Mansi won a Daytime Emmy for her work as Outstanding Supporting Actress in 2017 and first played the role from 2011-2016, then Miller took over the role.  Abigail’s last arc was played by Mansi when she returned from 2018- to the first part of 2020.  Miller had stepped away from the role in 2018 as she wanted to concentrate on other projects.

In regards to her comeback, Miller shared with SOD: “You never know how discombobulating it might be.  That was one of the things I had to weigh in coming back, was whether or not it was fair to the fans for me to accept (the offer) because Kate hadn’t been there for a very long stint. For them to do this flip-flop thing was a little bit of a concern of mine.”

Miller ultimately says she felt that it was better to have Abigail on the canvas, than not in all, and in the hands of an actress who was familiar with the role than a new actress to take over the part.

Make sure to check out SOD for more on Marci’s decision to return to the NBC soap opera.

Meanwhile, look for an exciting story ahead for Miller when Abigail gets back in action in Salem.

So, what do you think of Marci’s careful thought-process to coming home to DAYS? Comment below.
