Glad she is staying…enjoying Badi Gabi….my problem with Days is that they really never showed Julie grieve over her dead great grandchild or i missed it when i blinked…but it seems Days is too gloomy…soaps lack romantic moments and its what kills them…still recall Doug romancing Julie with a song and going dancing-those were the DAYS!

Oh good. I hope she will be leaving Salem soon. I could never like Gabi again. In my opinion, she was the one who acted nutty, not Abby.
