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!

Love you, Camila.

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

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.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, Deadline.com noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.
