I didnt know Deidre Hall was missing…lol…i thought ‘Where They Are Now’ was about tv celebs and news makers, athletes ect., we haven’t heard from or seen in ages…we all know where DH has been including staring on primetimes ‘Our House’ many moons ago…there should be a ‘Where They Are Now’ on this message board once a month featuring former daytime and primetime soap stars from soaps past and present…j.a.t.!!!

su0000, Deidre has had a huge following since 1976. In the early 1980’s, her character was “killed” by the Salem Strangler (a favorite storyline of jimh).

Her fans were in such a frenzy over the “death of Marlena” that they stormed NBC with protests which made the national news! Supposedly, Deidre had to take to phone calls to assure the fans everything would work out…Marlena’s twin sister Sam (Deidre’s real life twin Andrea) was the one murdered by the Salem Strangler!!

Marlena has caused a lot of arguments within my family for many years…most of us like her, including me, but a few can’t stand her!

Deidre received or will receive her star on The Hollywood Walk Of Fame this year!

Agreed! I don’t understand how Oprah chooses the celebrities to showcase. Many of them are still working and in the public eye.

@suOOO I know you are kidding but you might want to thank Ms Hall for helping put daytime on the map! Her chemistry with Jed Allen, Wayne Northup & Drake Hogestyn help put super couples on the map in other words she is what made daytime great ! Romance which is what Daytime use to be about she is responsible for helping put love in the afternoon. I salute you Ms. Hall!!!!!

jimh, I believe Marlena was introduced as Mickey’s psychiatrist after Mickey shot Bill when it was revealed that Bill was actually Mike’s father…BTW, in case you didn’t already know, John Amour (Michael Horton #7) recently died just shy of his 55th birthday. He played MH from 1971-1973. I would assume the first several Mike’s were babies.

I saw a tribute to him at Jason47’s Days Website/Facebook

I was loathe to post on this message board but I agree with you @jimh(leave it to beaver)…I too SMH at some of the celebrities featured that managed to stay in your face..but I really watched to see Kathy Kinney from the Drew Carey show who reminds me sooo much of a friend and girl I worked with years ago as servers in Red Lobster who was from Parma Ohio…she was a true MIMI. But it was interesting and a LOL moment when Diedre Hall was on the set of her favorite set..The Brady pub and pointed out that whole big ass hospital set conjoined with the Pub…that was hilarious.

This is dumb Deidre is the most beautiful actress in daytime.
The question should be where is Oprah!

I wish Oprah would have picked someone who is actually missing, like Eileen Fulton, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hays, Barbara Rodell, etc. I was an ATWT fan in case you cannot tell.

Oh Deidre still around and looking great! I will never forget when she got off an airplane and I was boarding one and tons of fans were there to meet her at the gate. She had on this great outfit and I had no idea what was going on I did a double take and she had this great smile on her face. That was during the Salem strangler storyline. I was a youngster and very mad that I was leaving town and she was in town I believe for a fan event.

Yes, jimh, Michael Fairman should have a “Where Are They Now?”

Speaking of Michaels…Where in the world is Michael Leon (Pete Jannings) and Michael T. Weiss (Mike Horton)?

Those that appear on this show, are people that were one time on her talk show…and had some life changing event. If you think more along the lines of “what have they done since” it makes more sense.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?
