I have been a loyal watcher for many years… since 81….that is 1981…. there has not been good writing for many years.. the only good writing I have seen has been the Carly addicted drug storyline and that was well written… maybe that was what was submitted…

Much more gracious words than what Marlene used following her firing. So happy for DAYS and this award for them. No matter what others (critics and nay-sayers) say, DAYS is a wonderful and entertaining show. Is it perfect? No, but I will forever root for this underdog.

I was elated, yet very surprised when Days of Our Lives won the writing Emmy for 2012. I wanted to see Marlene McPherson and Darrell Ray Thomas Jr. accept the Emmy, but they were not there. Nice statement from them. Now Days needs to rehire them!

I was so surprise that days won, because days is usually snub at the emmys.

Christie expressed: “Oh my goodness, just starting to feel ok on this end. My husband Tom and I have had coronavirus fairly bad. Not as bad as some, no hospital needed. Hope your all well! I’m sure at this stage you all know of someone with it? When you get it, you can’t call the grandparents for help, cause they will get sick. We know about 10 people in our little circle that have had it. Like clockwork, Day 7,8,&9 were tricky and haven’t been able to taste food for a while. So excited to be in the land of the living again & start exercising…soon. Thanks for all the love. Stay safe!”
