The talented and sexy Camila Banus of Days of our Lives took to Twitter to answer some inquiries from fans, as to why they have not seen her Salem alter-ego, Gabi Hernandez in story, or on screen for awhile.

Banus responded by sending out a tweet saying:  “Don’t worry I’ll be back on your screens very soon!”  She then further elaborated for those inquiring minds by tweeting:  “A lot of people have been asking why I am not airing on Days.  I was not in for a couple of months … but you will see me soon !!!”

The actress is appearing this summer on ABC’s Mistresses, so she may have been off the DAYS canvas during the time she filmed her episodes.

Banus’ Gabi had recently been paired with Casey Moss’ JJ Deveraux, but what will happen to Gabi when she comes back into the action in her storyline on DAYS?  Looks like we will have to tune-in to find out!

So, glad to hear Camila will be seen on the soap shortly? What would you like to see happen for Gabi in story or romantically in the months ahead?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

      I am not sure if I like Gabi with 30-second cop, JJ. There is no one on Days that appeals to the palate.
      She should probably concentrate on her careen and child for now. Life will happen soon enough.

        Show is AWFUL right now and she and JJ have zero chemistry together, unlike his young love romance with Paige which was wonderful. I don’t dislike the character of Gaby but the show in general is so disconnected and has little continuity….and the writing (currently) is lackluster and weak. I watch the show on the NBC app when I’m ironing my hospital scrubs or something just as background but it’s not compelling right now at all.
        BRING BACK Sonny, re-invent Will if necessary – and for crying out loud give Paul something to do.

        @Tim Clarke.
        Tell me about it….Rafe in chains?????
        I seem to remember Stefano ‘detaining’ Rafe in similar digs. Same caca.
        Poor Rafe. What to do?

    Pretty much anything! LoL.

    I would like to see them follow up on something they seemed to be hinting at based on something that happened back in February. Gabi and JJ were in the Town Square and Gabi was approached by a guy who turned out be a prison Corrections Officer she knew when she was incarcerated. When she tried to blow him off he made the cryptic comment: “What’s with the attitude? I looked out for you.” Then he proceeded to try to grab her twice but JJ stopped him and she was clearly afraid of him.

    I thought at the time “What’s this about?” And I thought the guy would turn up again and cause them some trouble but nope nothing came from it.

    I thought and still think that would be a good avenue for them to explore especially since her reintegration back into society has been a bit too seemless in some ways. It’s probably been too long for them to bring something like that back up. But who knows?

    That’s what I would like to see but I just her and JJ to have a storyline so I’m game for anything as long as it doesn’t involve elephant statues. LOL

    She is a good actress but I have not even realized she was gone.. the writing has been so bad…….

      …that’s an understatement the writing has been dreadful.

    jj and gabi are the new bo and hope of days…imo…
    they need a real story.. since gabi s been in prison and jj s had his own trouble with the law a story in the criminal realm would be exciting. the last time jj was intresting was when he was undercover against clyde. i d love to see the drug dealer that cylde ‘ killed’ return as he was charismatic… maybe him and gabi shared a thing in juve?

    She could really stay off the show – she’s a competent actress but her character adds nothing to the show – but it’s not really her fault, the writing is just so bland and the storylines seem to go in circles and don’t end up anywhere.

    I am guessing she will reappear when Sonny shows up back in Salem. He’ll want to see Ari so Gabi will once again be on the screen. I agree. I don’t see the chemistry between JJ and Gabi either. Also how quickly she became friends with Paul, knowing he had an affair with Will that ruined her happy family/home. How quickly they forget.

    I liked Gaby and I think she needs a more important part.Maybe add a new man in her life and give JJ some competition. The teenagers is what gets the best of me.Put them in college and get them out of the adult lives like with Chad.
    I get so upset with NBC, every time a news flash or any kind of interruption comes along,there goes Days.Now the RIO Olympics. All of the sports channels and they take Days to have them.Just crazy.

Friday night was a good night for daytime!  With its first foray back on to network television since 2011, the Daytime Emmy kudofest, while for the first time held this year virtually, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, scored very well in its timeslot.

The CBS broadcast averaged 3.1 million total viewers and a 0.3 demo rating.  That is way up from the last time viewers saw the award show on TV when it was on cable network POP TV back in 2015 with just over 900,000 viewers for its initial broadcast.

According to TV Insider report: The first hour of the Emmys garnered 3.3 million viewers to top the hour by edging out a rerun on ABC”s Shark Tank, and then slipped to second place for the second hour with 2.8 million viewers.

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.


The ladies of CBS’s The Talk hosted the event; each virtually from their homes, in an event filled with at-home acceptance speeches and presenters, and clip packages. The show was produced by NATAS and Associated Television International

So, what do you think of the ratings performance of this year’s Daytime Emmys?  Comment below.

How The Virtual Daytime Emmys Came Together And Will Look and Feel

Friday night, daytime fans, soap fans, and all the hard working people in front of the camera and behind the scenes that make your favorite soap operas come to life; will be awaiting the announcement in 15 categories to see who is the recipients of this year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmys.

The show finally back on network TV and on CBS, and according to Variety the show is going to be pre-taped, but to keep the element of surprise, presenters  appearing on the Emmys were asked to tape 5 different envelope openings — and every nominee in the major categories presented will have been asked to tape an acceptance speech.

As for keeping the winners’ identities under wraps, NATAS President and CEO Adam Sharp shared: “We’ve established an internal process so that actual knowledge of the winner is kept as a need-to-know basis on a category-by-category basis.  Certainly as we get closer to final delivery of the show, on the week of the 26th, there will be those who start seeing the whole picture come together. But obviously, a big goal of that is keeping that circle small.”

Look for more clips and visuals than usual in the virtual Daytime Emmys.  According to ATI’s, Al Schwartz who is executive producing the telecast: “Since it’s pre-taped, we can really present, for the viewers’ entertainment, the best possible visuals for each nominee. There’s going to be time to breathe in this show. And also, there’s time to keep the pacing up, so that it doesn’t get monotonous.”

The ladies of The Talk serve as hosts for Daytime’s biggest night, even though everyone will be shown from their homes.  It all starts at 8 p. m. EST/7 p. m. CST and tape delayed on the west coast airing at 8 p. m. PST.
