In a brand new interview with Soaps.com, Days of our Lives, Galen Gering (Rafe Hernandez) offers his thought on the ongoing debate of SAFE vs. EJami which now has a new twist in the story, with EJ lying shot in the head fighting for his life, thanks to Sami! And, Rafe on the way to figuring out who pulled the trigger!   Here are a few excerpts!

Galen on where he is in his this thought process of  SAFE vs. EJami: “Well, I’m one of the characters who’s vying for this girl, so clearly I feel she should be with me. [laughs] I think the reasons are pretty obvious. First and foremost, they love each other. EJ is like the worst possible guy in Rafe’s opinion. You know, if Sami doesn’t want to be with Rafe, then fine. Just please don’t go with EJ!”

Galen on Rafe’s relationship with Sami’s son, Will, who he suspects shot EJ!  “At this point, he considers Will to be the main suspect because he had motive and he doesn’t have a strong alibi. Sami does have motive but also an alibi in that Rafe thinks she was with him all night. Yeah, there’s a little twist and turn there as far as that goes. Clearly, this is all sort of new territory for Rafe because he’s this stand-up guy who always follows the book. Now, we’re going to start seeing him change course a little bit on that.”

I don’t think the choice here is clear cut at all. Safe was clearly a rebound for Sami and is built on Rafe’s insane need to own EJ’s children and the woman EJ loves with a large portion of EJ hate for added measure. EJ may not be the “hero” in this triangle but he is the interesting, sexy one in the mix and the father of two of Sami’s children. Sami is very comfortable with lying about just about anything but most often about her true feelings. Once she tells Rafe that she shot EJ and the real reason, things may not be so clear cut for Rafe. The wild card is how will EJ react to being shot by Sami. EJ does love Sami so, his reaction may not be so predictable.

If boring and sleep-inducing is what the show is going for in this story, Sami and Rafe will be the outcome. But if steamy and exciting is an option, EJ and Sami will end the dance with a chance at a real relationship and building their family.

I know that I will always go for exciting and steamy, every single time. Boring just makes me want to turn off Days permanently.

Thanks Michael.

I just wish gg would leave days of our lives two years and they still do not get it! a huge number does not care from what he does ,what that tell you about days of our lives?
I hope that james will found something better then days their writing is terrible, and they constantly force us to see galen they have no idea what they do!if the series will continue to push rafe at the end you’ll be cancel

I agree with everything you said. James is much better than this show, but Ej is the only reason why I am watching.

Thanks for posting this. Love all of Galen’s interviews. Love his take on things. He never takes things too seriously. That’s what his fans love about him.

Thanks for posting this awesome interview with my favorite actor on DOOL. Galen is such a nice guy, always humble, down to earth, honest, witty, and considerate. I love him with Sami. Go SAFE!

I am so glad that DOOL execs brought Galen to the show. It brought me and a lot of others back to Days with the promise of a romance for Sami and Rafe. Thanks to TPTB! Great job of casting.

the salem that us fans of 45 years want Sami and Lucas back and to hell with EJ and Rafe,put them two together and maybe they would fine true love for Sami’s true love is BRD/Lucas Horton.

yep that is what we want Sami and Lucas and their kids back as a family,
The Horton Family forever and always LUMILY

bring BRD/Lucas back for his Family needs him.

Lucas Horton art to come home and take his kids,
and cant EJ get a woman with out raping and faking,
and cant Rafe just go away.

If James/EJ is the actor some of you think he is,WHY is he on Days Of Our Lives???
I remember the years of friend ship of Lucas and Sami,and that is where this story and Dool will or should end.
EJ and Sami /cycle of abuse,that is how I see them.
I wish Rafe would just go away forever.

James is on DAYS because he chooses to be.
It gives him the freedom to do other projects.
Are you implying that soap actors aren’t worthy of anything other than soaps?I can think of one actor who had a successful primtime show and was on DAYS for a week or two? He found it very difficult to keep up with the pace of daytime. Daytime actors are THE hardest working actors in the business and to imply otherwise is insulting to all of them, including Bryan Datillo.

Bottom line for me is that I don’t buy Rafe as a good guy I can like, while EJ is a bad guy that I love. Rafe is a smug know it all who expresses everything with a smirk, while EJ shows us the man underneath the veneer of DiMera. I’m always going to pull for the bad boy when he has the charisma of a James Scott.

Ej and Sami FOREVER and EVER and EVER

Lumi forever! I’m pissed at Sami that she is throwing that away. Lucas is the only guy for her.

Arianne Zucker Reflects Back on the ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape with Donald Trump, and Speaks to Her Exit from Days of our Lives

It’s been eight years, but somehow seems like ages ago, that Arianne Zucker was thrust into the mainstream public limelight, unfortunately not for her work as Nicole on Days of our Lives, but for the Access Hollywood taped that surfaced when former president Donald Trump  and current Republican nominee, visited the set of the (then) NBC soap opera, and met Zucker.

The tape captured a hot mic moment between Trump and then ‘Access’ host Billy Bush inside of their bus which featured lewd remarks about Zucker between the two men.

Speaking on the moment, Zucker opened about it on Rachel Uchitel’s Miss Understood podcast, where the video version of the interview is now on Uchitel’s You Tube Channel. Back in 2005, Arianne was the scene partner with Trump in his Apprentice/Days of our Lives crossover appearance, because her character of Nicole was at the time a gold-digger.

Zucker shared of her on set experience with Trump from 2005, “I had a great experience. He was lovely, and I had no idea anything behind the scenes was happening. So, it never affected me.” Next in October 2016, Arianne says she it got a call from her manager at the time when the Access Hollywood tapes came to light and that is when she first heard about the situation.

The actress and life coach reflected back, “Everybody has spoken poorly about somebody in their lifetime. I don’t care who you are, everybody has, it’s just people get caught on camera doing it. Unfortunately, that happens all the time. And if you’ve ever gone to a fraternity party, these things happen. So (when she later read the taped comments) I’m going, ‘sounds like something my fraternity guys I know would say.’ But I just didn’t see it in the way that people were seeing it.’”

Expressing why she never made an official comment when the press were asking for one, Arianne revealed, “I didn’t make a comment though, because I was in fear of losing my job. So I didn’t say anything.”  She added, “I felt attacked by the media because I knew all they wanted. I mean, the biggest thing was to get Trump off the ballot. I was like, that is not my job.”

Later, Arianne explained she felt she received no protection from the situation. “I got no apology from my place of employment. I really got no apology from NBC. I felt I had no protection. ”

DAYS fans are counting down and not happily that about six weeks from now, on July 29th, when Zucker makes her on-screen exit from Days of our Lives. After being fired for standing up to Corday Productions for on set sexual harassment and discrimination charges, the actress formally filed a lawsuit she has brought against her former employer which includes charges of wrongful termination.

Zucker said on her upcoming departure from DAYS, “I will not say how I leave the show. I do respect that we don’t want to share that. We want the fans to be excited and enticed.” However, Arianne confirmed that the character of Nicole is not ‘killed-off”.

So, what do you think of Arianne’s comments reflecting back on the Access Hollywood tapes media frenzy with Donald Trump, and her upcoming exit from DAYS? Weigh-in. But first, check out Ari on Rachel’s podcast below.

DAYS Dan Feuerriegel on EJ Keeping Eric From His Child, “He’s in the Deep End … There’s No Coming Back for Him Now”

On Days of our Lives, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) has been reunited with her biological son, baby Jude. Her husband, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), is now keeping a major secret, and in order to keep it from coming out he had to get Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) out of Salem, and keep both Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) and Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart) quiet and at bay.

However, as in any good soap opera, time is running out for EJ. What will happen when Nicole and Eric (Greg Vaughan) find out that EJ is not the little one’s biological father, but Eric is? And, what will happen when they realize EJ knew the truth and hid it from them?

This is just one item in a laundry list of skullduggery committed by EJ since he has been in Salem. With Arianne Zucker set to exit on-screen on July 29th, it looks like we are heading into the home stretch of the baby switch storyline.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Dan Feuerriegel to get his take on the situation and what it has been like working with Greg and Ari in the story.

Dan shared on EJ’s despicable decision to pretend he is Jude’s bio-dad, “I know I’m a terrible human being, but I love playing a terrible human being.” Feurriegel added, “Oh, he’s in the deep end. Like, there is no coming back for him now.”

The DAYS star also noted if EJ had done anything more nefarious to Sloan, his character might not ever be able to come back from that. “There’s only so much hatred EJ can get from the viewers that it probably would’ve been a bridge too far for me to just make her (Sloan) disappear,” clarified Dan.

As to his time working with Arianne Zucker as his on-screen wife, Dan had noting but praise for her. Feuerriegel expressed, “I loved working with her. She’s so good. She’s an amazing actress. She’s fantastic. Every scene that I did with her, I didn’t have to do anything because I just rode on the coattails of what she did. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her.”

Dan also had high marks for his on-screen nemesis, Greg Vaughan, “Greg is fantastic, like everybody in the storyline was amazing. Greg’s amazing … Ari’s amazing … Jessica was fantastic and that’s what made it work. I’m very grateful to have worked with every single one of them.”

On soap operas and especially on Days of our Lives, when someone exits, or ‘dies’ on-screen that doesn’t mean goodbye forever, and Dan knows this too. In regards to anyone who leaves Salem, the actor joked, “I’m not going to say the doors closed, because you never say never, especially in Hollywood or on a soap. I mean, I’ve come back and I was like two inches shorter and (with) a completely different face.”

So, how do you think Eric will find out that Jude is really his son, and that EJ has been lying to keep Nicole? Let us know in the comment section, but first Check out our conversation with Dan from the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.

Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers Return to Days of our Lives to Celebrate Abe and Paulina’s Juneteenth Wedding Anniversary and a ‘Going Away’ Party

There are several reasons that Days of our Lives favorites Lamon Archey (Eli) and Sal Stowers (Lani) are making a return on the Wednesday, June 19th episode of the Peacock streaming soap opera.

First, Lani and Eli come back to Salem to celebrate the wedding anniversary of Abe (James Reynolds) and Paulina (Jackee Harry), which happened on Juneteenth Day which is on June 19th.

Juneteenth, which is a Federal holiday, is an annual commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States after the Civil War, has been celebrated by African Americans since the late 1800s.

Meanwhile, the return also serves as a “apparent” send-off for Johnny (Carson Boatman) and Chanel (Raven Bowens), who are set to depart Salem, since Johnny landed his dream job in California.

Look like Elani is also attending their going away party, but are the departing couple (with Chanel being pregnant) really going to leave Salem? Stay tuned.

Stowers made her first Days of our Lives appearance back in September of 2015. Lani is the adoptive daughter of Abe and the biological daughter of Paulina. As for Archey, he arrived on the scene in 2017 as Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) grandson. Sal and Lamon were last seen on-screen in March of this year.

Looking forward to seeing Eli and Lani back on DAYS? Do you think Johnny and Chanel are exiting the Salem canvas? Comment below.
