Two of the greatest icons in daytime drama history are being recognized for their performances and contributions in news today from The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS).

This year at the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards none other than Days of our Lives all-time, real-life supercouple and on-screen duo, Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams) will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award during the ceremony on Sunday night, April 29th, 2018 at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Southern California.

“I’ve been star-struck by the dynamic duo of Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth Hayes for decades,” said David Michaels, SVP, Daytime Emmy Awards, NATAS. “The scope of their work across the television, film and stage landscape is amazing. Their continuing roles of almost 50 years on Days of Our Lives, where they also met and married, is a Daytime story like no other!”

In addition to Bill and Susan, another duo will receive the Lifetime Achievement Daytime Emmy at the Creative Arts ceremonies on Friday night, April 27th.  Those honorees are Children’s programming producers extraordinaire, the brother duo of Sid and Marty Krofft.

“In addition, Sid and Marty Krofft, our Daytime Creative Arts honorees, are masters of children’s television programming and have been part of my family viewing since the creation of H.R. Pufnstuf, Sigmund & the Sea Monsters and Land Of The Lost. Their terrific variety programs such as The Donny and Marie Series on ABC and Barbara Mandrell & the Mandrell Sisters have only solidified the breadth of their talent across the television spectrum.”

So, what do you think of Bill and Susan being honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s Daytime Emmys?  Comment below!

“this” is icing on the cake… cheers to Bill and Susan… VET Salute

“what” a banner year @Days

in a million years ; who would have thought

@Days

to seal the deal and nail it shut… Ron Carlivati gets the WGA for DOOL.

and more deserving than we can believe… BEST SHOW @the Emmys

Hollah !

Celia

Yes, yes, and yes, Patrick….
This couple is “icing on the cake”
And, lo and behold, Hattie is back!!!!! What are the chances she is ‘directing’ John to kill Andre and Steve?
What does she have over John’s head?

Patrick
Patrick

– more importantly – catch Carrie N Rafe .. sizzling it out

Christie Clark ; so gorgeous in her shoulder length CUT me some out

OH wait for the underlying temptations fired between these two as Hope … could just do her job…. and blinders on

let the show begin > @DAYS I haven’t seen this much hot in so long… for Rafe and the missed more than ever Christie Clark. PUHLEASE

———–

John – is – poisoning Steve (Patch) ????

with Paul and Will in the know.. and sleuthing this out

I don’t know when I’ve been so stumped… taken by complete surprise.. that @RC is writing up a “due’zy. ? whatever the case…

1. it’s nice to see Drake Hogestyn period. He did try and share this with Marlena… as she’s fielding calls from Will and Carrie… AND Hattie disrupting that ?? gothic cohesive knit group… like we were seeing inroads to what goes on with those DiMera. when one of their own dies

LOL oy the sense of humor and read between the lines this show has going on. all dressed in black… as the DiMera Clan whets the audience. SOD hasn’t said Thaao is gone… yet. I do not want this to happen… so if it’s Tony who’s coming back… for, me it’s Thaao Penghlis and Lauren Koslow TIME.

Patrick, I am sooo happy to see Christie Clark back as Carrie! Her scenes with Hope and Rafe were great. I want her back for good!

Celia

Beautiful post, Patrick…hold on….need to close door to mEn-cave, LOL….Too much noise….Superbowl—oh, wait….Timberlake is on….WOW!!! He’s soooo good!!
Well, I have always loved Carrie….Unfortunately, her visit will be a short one? She anf Rafe ( Cafe) can make Salem sizzle, Patrick. The Brady sisters have something in common—-they are both able to resuscitate Rafe…..so, if Sami is not in the cards, please, ye soap gods, let it be Carrie!!

I will never forget their love story. I watched Day’s years ago, and they were legendary. Doug and Julie, what a wonderful story they had. I’m a GH fan now, but Doug and Julie, and Luke and Laura are equals in day time history. They deserve all the awards they can get.

Well deserved by both actors. I remember when Bill first came on the show. They are both terrific. Now if only we could watch them get their award.

I liked it when Doug sang “The Look of Love” and “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World” to Julie back in the 1970s. It was such an elegant restaurant. Remember when they would bring a telephone to the table?! How times have changed.

Those shows were so good and only 30 minutes!

I’ve always enjoyed every performance by Susan Seaforth Hayes.

paul453, I so enjoyed those days of DOOL, classic and miss them so…Loved the Doug, Julie, Addie story line….Congrats to Bill and Susan, this is so well deserved…

paul453

Agree; loved those stories. I also liked Denise Alexander and the Andersons. Do they still exist? I’d love to see them again. Sometimes the tapes were wiped (like old Jeopardy, Concentration, and The Who What or Where Game).

This is another reason I would love to see the awards televised this year. I wish PopTV, Lifetime or Hallmark would pick up the show or maybe one of the networks could televise in the afternoon, like in the old days. Congrats to Bill and Susan.

Congratulations Bill and Susan! I can’t think of anyone more deserving. I’ve watched Days of our Lives for over 40 years and always enjoy scenes with Doug and Julie. Again, Congratulations for this wonderful award.

So happy for them! A good reason to hope for televised/streamed awards. It’s really the best soap news I’ve heard in the past month or so.

They were on Time Magizine I think in 1976 I was just a kiddo my husband and I were in vacation saw them in a restaurant never approached we are not stalkers lovely folks god bless them

Shay

Congratulations to this lovely real-life couple! They are absolute soap-legends, so the kudos are well-deserved! I’m already hoping that next year’s recipient of this prestigious award will be Genie Francis….despite her relatively tender years in comparison to most honorees, she has been a fan favorite for four decades and her phenomenal Laura made a significant contribution to the popularity of the entire daytime industry that goes far beyond simply saving the ungrateful GH from certain cancellation way back in the late ‘70’s.

Celia
Celia

Hi, Shay,
Nice to see your name here…..yes, congratulations to Bill and Susan…….they deserve the recognition and more…
Ms Hall should be recognized, as well….Are you familiar with her? She plays a dual role….and the ‘evil’ character wants to eliminate her through her husband, John. LOL. ….as soapy as it can get….
Later, Shay…keep posting.

Shay
Shay

@CeeCee….Oh indeed, I do remember Deidre Hall and her Marlena/Samantha from years back…she’s another soap legend, to be sure. But at least she’s still viable on the DOOL canvas, along with plenty of other legacy characters that remain in Salem. GH is the soap which seems to demonstrate the great reluctance to retain its own longtime fan favorites….and Genie Francis’ Laura is the most egregious example of this shameful practice.

Celia
Celia

Well, Shay….that’s the reason I coined TPTB as “soap gods”—– they have the power to swing their marionettes on a string….vets or not, they only keep whoever they deem ‘ enhancing’ to the character of Sonny.

Although I have never been a watcher of Days, I have been a Y&R fan since the mid eighties when Ms.Hayes played Lauren’s mother. And if memory serves me correctly, I think she was having a c fling with John Abbott at one point as well. I loved then and I love her now. They are such a classy and distingushed couple and no one deserves it more. Congratulations

That is amazing! Congrats to Bill & Susan! They most assuredly deserve the honor! It’s a great pleasure whenever they’re on #Days. I also always enjoyed watching the Daytime Emmys, I wish they would televise the show again!

This is wobnderful news! So well deserved.

I wonder if Ms. Seaforth-Hayes Y&R turn is remembered, as Lauren Fenmore’s mother. I would love to see her return there. I love these now grande dames of daytime play important story roles. They provide continuity but, as in Marla Adams’s return to Y&R, show a need for this history, talent, and vitality from this demographic.

I never watched any of their shows, but I saw them for years and years in the various soap magazines. Beautiful and classy people.

Will the show be televised anywhere, including online? Great to hear about the Kroffts, too.

Congrats to Bill & Susan. Last of the original Horton clan.

And to the Kroft brothers as well…. after all, they gave at least two Days actors their first TV jobs. (lets see how many of you know what the Devil is talking about here)

Two of the Krofft brothers’ series were ‘Electra Woman and Dyna Girl’ starring Deidre Hall and ‘Land of the Lost’ starring Wesley Eure, Satan. Nice riddle.

Satan, your comment about the Kroft Bros., so interested me, that I Googled them, but could find nothing in relation to the soaps or stars. I did certainly watch a lot of their TV works, so please, for those of us in the dark, please shed a little light.

Satan
Satan

Wesley Eure, who played the first “adult” Mike Horton, got his start on the Kroft series “Land of the Lost” (dinosaurs, Sleestaks, etc.)

And Diedre Hall (Marlena) was the star of “Electra Woman & Dyno Girl”. I’m sure you can find both shows on YouTube. Or the MeTv website used to have a lot of the old Kroft shows. Haven’t been there in a while so I don’t know if that’s still the case.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?

Check out more teasers for this week’s DAYS below, and then watch the latest promo for this week’s episodes via NBC here.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Fights Off His “Killer” Instincts As Rob Scott Wilson Delivers Power Performance Of The Week

In Days of our Lives’ version of Beauty and the Beast, in this case Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is the ‘beauty’ and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) is the ‘beast’ she is to tame, last Thursday and Friday’s episodes illustrated to us where this duo could be heading in the future.

But first things, first.  The situation took a horrifying turn for Ciara, and for Ben, when he runs into the cabin beside himself!  He informs Ciara he went to the pharmacy to get his prescription but the police have swarmed the place.  Getting more and more agitated, Ben tells Ciara, he blames her, and her mother, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) for putting an APB out on him!  Ciara says she didn’t say anything to her mother.   But, Ben is losing his grip on reality fast and he desperately needs his meds.  He’s on edge and begs her not to call Hope, as he can’t go back to the sanitarium.  Ciara tries to calm Ben down and insists that she won’t to that to him, but suddenly, he becomes more unglued and stomps on her cell phone!

Next, Ben is hallucinating thinking he has handcuffed Ciara to the bed – the same thing he did to Abigail!   He sees Ciara in the handcuffs.  Ciara tells him she is not in them and to look at her hands.  All of a sudden, as she tells him she is on his side, and will help him through this, he calls her, “a lying little whore, just like the rest of them.”  Ben thinks she believes he is a ‘killer’ like everyone else, because she has now grabbed a knife to defend herself.

Ben tells Ciara that maybe he hasn’t changed at all, he is a serial killer, and now that he is off his meds he sees things very clearly. Ciara tries to calm him down and assure him everything will be OK.  When he closes his eyes and then opens them, he still sees that Ciara is handcuffed to the bed.  Crawling more and more out of his skin, Ben begins to hear his father, Clyde saying, “She’s lying to you, boy …trying to fool you … the same as that slut Abigail.”

Now, Ben hallucinates that Clyde (James Read) is in the cabin, egging him on to strangle Ciara, red necktie and all!  As Ben fights off his father’s attempts to make him do heinous things to Ciara, (he even hears Clyde telling him to burn down the cabin), yielding a knife Ciara calms Ben down saying Clyde is not really there.  Ben admits he doesn’t know what’s real anymore.  Ciara puts her knife down and offers her hand to hold on to. Ben takes Ciara’s hand and sits down as Clyde’s image fades away.  Ciara begs Ben to run to the pharmacy to get his meds. She promises she will not use her phone.  Ben exits.

However on Cliffhanger Friday, Ciara is engulfed in flames in the cabin, with no Ben to be found, and Rafe (Galen Gering) getting a signal from her cell directing him and Hope on a collision course with Ciara and Ben.

Throughout the two episodes of Ben’s battle with his sanity and how he is haunted by what he has done to others, and vacillating. between reality and delusional, Rob Scott Wilson illustrated once again, that given the material that his performances of Ben are mesmerizing. Wilson’s scenes make you stop whatever you may be doing, and take notice.  That is why Rob is our pick for the “Power Performance of the Week.”

So, what did you think of Rob’s performance?  What did you think of what happened in the cabin between Ben and Ciara? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
