Not familiar with her work on DAYS, but I know her from PASSIONS and know she is a great actress. I think that OLTL should snag her if Amanda Setton is not intent on returning to OLTL anytime soon. I can picture Lindsay in the role of Kim and I think she would do an amazing job! Plus, it would give OLTL a reason to have Clint on more…he has been MIA for far too long.

I am shocked with this sudden news! Lindsay is a powerhouse of an actress and kept numerous fans glued to the screen during her 9 year Passions run. The only reason I dove back into Days was for her joining the cast. I know Lindsay will find the perfect role soon, so her fans will patiently wait for the right decision.
After her last episode I will no longer tune in, there you have it TPTB.

Lindsey is never going to get her man, Ethan. alius Brady Black. This romance want see an end if you FIRE her. She,s a great actress. Boo to you for taking her off.

My first day back after 3 years off from DOOL was Lindsay’s first day. Her last day will be my last day. I don’t think TPTB can see what’s in front of them. EJ-Arianna were cute together, and could have made a nice little couple for a while. Instead we have Rafe and Sami getting back together around Labor Day and then what…..EJ sits home alone playing chess?? There isn’t another woman on DOOL who works with him.

This is terrible news. I started back watching when Lindsay came on, and now she’s leaving after just a year! She’s one of the best actresses on daytime, I hope another soap like General Hospital snags her up soon. This might make me quit watching Days after she leaves. Maybe if they bring Jack and Jennifer back I MIGHT stick around…

Are you kidding Lindsay got fired from Days, What a lousy move, If she didn’t see eye to
eye with Brady you should have gotten a new boyfriend for her. Get rid of Nicole she
is obnoxious,If it weren’t for Galen Gering I would never watch the show again, Also tell Allison Sweeney to stop wining and screaming all the time She does not know a goodf
thing when it is right in front of her,

I am mad beyond belief…Never really watched days until LH arrive. I have never seen such incompentence on a soap in my life. I totally enjoyed ej and ari. I thought it would have beautiful see JS as a heartthrob. But the brainiac kept every story line long as hell and they just ruin it for me. Her last day will be mine.

I was actually very shocked when i heard the news..LH is such a wonderful actress and I think Days is making a big mistake letting her go. I hope she gets snagged by another (smarter) soap. I only started watching Days when she came on and loved the idea of her and Ej as a couple..they have such chemistry..her last day will also be mine. She is a great actress and I wish her all the best in the future!

Lindsay is a talented actress. But I didnt see a future with her on days of our lives, The writers did a bad job writing her character. Bring Lindsay to General hospital. She can somehow have ties to , Olivia, brooklyn, or maybe even a love interest for Sonny or Johnny. Lindsay is a ver dynamic and captivating. Another idea is that we been hearing alot about the lopez brother. Lindsay character name was theresa lopez fitzerald on Passions. Maybe General Hospital Can use lindsay as a sister of the lopez brothers and she falls inlove with Johnny Zacarah. THey can Create a character for Lindsay on General hospital.. Marc Teschner Please if your reading this Consider Bringing Lindsay to General Hospital. You gave the Fans what they wanted by Bringing the talented Vanessa Marcil Giovanazi back. Thank you so much for that. I am pretty sure the rating of GH are going to increase very much! Lindsay would mix well with tha lopez brothers or with the russian mob war storyline.

Day’s just makes one mistake after another. I’ve had enought. Lindsay’s last day will be mine too. I’ve been watching Day’s for 42 years. I can’t do it anymore. This is the straw that broke the camels back. I hope one of the smarter soaps pick up Lindsay and do right by her. Dirty rotten shame..

THIS WEEK: Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi Exit DAYS As Chabby Says Their “I Do’s” In Heart-tugging Moments

By now, Days of our Lives fans have learned that this week marks the end of the run, for now, of Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi as Chad and Abby.  But before they exit look for wedding bells to ring as Chabby remarries.

When Marci Miller decided to depart the role of Abigail, Kate Mansi returned to the role she played before Miller to finish the arc, which would have potentially left Abby to leave town and Chad to be without her, since Mansi signed on to just complete the storyline,

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest  (in latest issue on newsstands now) the thought process of having the duo leave together: “While it was kind of agonizing to make the decision that Chad will exit the canvas with Abigail, I decided that was the best thing for the couple, it was the best thing for the fans and it was the best thing for the show. The way that they exit is very, very open-ended. It’s not like someone is going to die. They leave happy and the door is completely open for them to come back. As much as I’m sure some people will be sad to see them go, I think they’ll be happy to see them go together. It just seemed so unfair to not give them a happy ending. And I just didn’t see how that happy ending would work if Chad stayed in Salem and Abigail left.”   He added: “Obviously, if the time is right, the story is right, and the people are available, they’ll be back.”

Looks like we all need to get out the hankies after checking out the latest NBC promo for Chad and Abby’s wedding and farewell.  You can watch it below.  Then let us know if you are sad to see Billy and Kate exit DAYS, and if you hope they will be back sooner than later via the comment section below.

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.

So, what do you think about some of the key points that the Days of our Lives producers bring up in their lawsuit against Sony? Comment below.
