Remember in On-Air On-Soaps recent video interviews from A Day of DAYS 2011 with James Scott (EJ) we discussed some upcoming “blackmail”? And later we spoke with Chandler Massey (Will) and Camila Banus (Gabi) to get a preview of what is going to happen with Will’s coming out story?  Well, we can now reveal, thanks to a very revealing interview with TV Guide with Chandler Massey, that Will’s coming out story is going to be one fraught with so much intense drama, that it could be one story for the record books. EJ and Will are going to both blackmail each other and Will’s secret sexuality will be used as leverage by EJ!   Plus, next week Will gets stinking drunk and let’s a roomful people know exactly what he thinks of them!  Here are a few excerpts below:

Chandler on EJ getting wise to Will’s sexuality leading to a mutual blackmail!:  “When Will’s plan to move in with Gabi fails, he doesn’t have anywhere else to go. He wants to leave Salem so he tries to blackmail EJ into giving him money. But then EJ turns the tables on Will and threatens to reveal he’s gay. It turns into this master-slave relationship.”

Chandler on EJ stooping this low to blackmail a young kid who is trying to come to grips with who he is sexually: “EJ is not afraid to go there, and I think it’s great that Days has the nerve. Our writers certainly have balls. I was shocked to read some of the scripts. Other shows might be afraid to go this direction with a story that’s this potentially sensitive but I think what we’re doing is so much richer and dramatic because of it. Daytime TV has fallen on hard times. Now is the time to take risks. It’s time to go big or go home.”

Chandler on Monday’s upcoming December 5th episode where Will gets drunk at a Christmas Party:  “Hell, yeah! And the whole family plus the mayor is there! Will decides he’s been through so much s–t that he deserves a drink. He drinks too much and gets rowdy, telling everybody exactly how he feels, which for an actor is always fun! Those are some of my favorite scenes I’ve ever shot and a great opportunity to show a wider range and a different side of Will. He’s lashing out at his mom, mostly. He’s calling her out on everything she’s done to everyone present in the room.”

So what do you think of the upcoming plot twists? Let us know!

Chandler Massey is hitting it out of the park with every scene. One of the best young actors to ever come out of daytime.

Chandler Massey is a good actor. I have enjoyed his work so far. But I do not think much of this upcoming gay storyline. It seems pointless. I think Days is spreading itself too thin creatively. You cannot please everybody. Viewers are not as patient as they have been in years past. Gay storylines are divisive. I think this is a wrong move for this show. Other storylines are good right now. Not looking forward at all to this one.

Sounds like fun! Can’t wait. I’ll be watching.

Just wondering how EJ figures out Will is gay. Does he catch him with a guy or does his gaydar just go off?

Chandler Massey is awesome! The scene where he wrecked Maggie’s kitchen was phenomenal acting as far as I’m concerned! Emmy worthy!

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
