Tomorrow on Valentine’s Day, look for a long awaited very special moment between Days of our Lives super couple WilSon, as played by Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Guy Wilson (Will)!  That is when as previewed in a special interview with Advocate.com, the duo becomes engaged!

Freddie and Guy chatted with the LGBT outlet to discuss the strides, sometimes pushback, and future story for Salem’s duo who carry the rainbow flag proudly.  Here are a few interesting excerpts!

Freddie on the WilSon engagement:  “I’ve been waiting for this since the day I signed on,  Of course, Will said ‘no’ when Sonny popped the question last month because it’s a soap and it has to be dramatic. But when I found out they were finally getting engaged, I was thrilled. Will and Sonny have been a power couple for two years now and in the town of Salem, people don’t usually stay together that long, so they’re doing something right. It’s definitely time.”

Guy on experiencing some homophobic pushback since taking on the role of Will:  “No one has approached me on the street or anything, but I’ve gotten hateful anti-gay messages though social media and it makes me sad.  Not because someone is being mean to me, but because there are some people out there who still have such vitriol for this kind of story. That’s part of why I try on a daily basis to be an example through my acting that love is love. I’ve been a longtime supporter of the LGBT community and when I hear things like that it only makes me appreciate the work that’s being done in the battle for equality that much more.”

Freddie on showing intimacy between two men in daytime: . “I don’t get it. I’m happy that we’re able to show intimacy. That was one of the things we set out to do when we began this story, to show passion and intimacy and make it as authentic as possible – and I think we are. We’re rolling around in the sheets a lot lately. For me, being able to show the full spectrum of Will and Sonny’s relationship has been so rewarding.”

For who will plan this wedding and more, make sure to check out the entire article! And now after the jump take a look at this clip-tease featuring the duo for tomorrow’s episode of DAYS! Then let us know, are you happy Will and Sonny are getting engaged? What do you think about their same-sex love story depiction on DAYS?  Let us know!

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

You can never get enough Jackée, right? Right! The popular actress who recently made her daytime drama return in a new role on Days of our Lives as Paulina, will also be seen next month in the third and final season of the hit and groundbreaking FX series, Pose.

In a tweet on social media, Jackée expressed: “And I’m SO relieved to finally tell you to catch me on the final season of #PoseFX  Consider me honored and over the moon!!!!””

For those who don’t know, Pose is a drama spotlighting the legends, icons and ferocious house mothers of New York’s underground ball culture, a movement that first gained notice in the late 1980s. Making television history, Pose features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles, including Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore and Hailie Sahar, who co-star alongside Billy Porter, Angel Bismark Curiel, Dyllón Burnside, Sandra Bernhard and Jason Rodriguez. The Golden Globe-nominated drama also features the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series.

In the final season of Pose, it’s now 1994 and ballroom feels like a distant memory for the character of Blanca who struggles to balance being a mother with being a present partner to her new love, and her latest role as a nurse’s aide. Meanwhile, as AIDS becomes the leading cause of death for Americans ages 25 to 44, Pray Tell contends with unexpected health burdens. Elsewhere, the emergence of a vicious new upstart house forces the House of Evangelista members to contend with their legacy.

Pose was co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, who executive produce alongside Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sherry Marsh and Janet Mock. Our Lady J is co-executive producer.
