DAYS Goes Magic Mike! Gering, Martsolf, Christian and Owens in Strip Tease!



Well ladies and gentlemen, now you can see four hotties of the daytime scene stripping in a fictional scene on Days of our Lives coming up on April 23rd’s episode!  That’s right!  But what makes this really fun was the interview two of the participants (Galen Gering and Eric Martsolf) just gave to TV Guide Magazine’s  Michael Logan, where they discuss the filming of the scenes a la the film Magic Mike!

Apparently upcoming in story, Cameron Davis (Nathan Owens) who has already been paying for his medical school bills by stripping at night in some joint in Chicago get some help from Rafe (Gering), Brady (Martsolf) and Daniel (Shawn Christian) to benefit Salem University Hospital. And to help Cameron out of a job the guys are dressed Village People Y.M.C.A style!

Gering noted that Martsolf was comfortable doing strip shows! “Eric clearly has a lot of experience doing strip shows! And I think Shawn was pretty drunk so he was having a good time, too. I was just trying not to embarrass myself but I kept remembering what they taught us in acting school: Dare to suck.”

And it looks like veteran Peggy McKay (Caroline Brady) attends the strip show featuring the boys! Martsolf related, “I saw Peggy waving her dollar bill and giving me that look and I just couldn’t handle it. I’m thinking, ‘I can’t do it! I just can’t do it!’  So I slowly made my way across to the other side of the stage.  As an actor I’ll try pretty much anything. You gotta accept this kind of stuff when you’re a daytimer. It’s what we signed up for. (Laughs) But guess what? I do have boundaries!”

After years having their shirts off for no reason on the defunct NBC soap Passions, Martsolf related how he and Gering were right at home! :Galen and I had no issues — certainly not after Passions where we’d take off our clothes for any mundane reason.”  He recalls one plot where he and Justin Hartley had to help a woman who’d been shot. “”I used my shirt as a pillow, he used his as a tourniquet, then we hung around the hospital topless for six episodes asking about her condition. So this thing on Days? Business as usual!”

So DAYS fans are you looking forward to this plot point?  We bet you are!  Do you think its fun concept as an excuse to see the guys half-naked?  Let us know!

    I’ve never seen Magic Mike nor will I ever. And while Shawn/Eric are the only two on this list that I’d be remotely attracted to, none of the guys are ultimately who I’d wish to see in this so-called fictional scene.

    They’re just copying the guys from GH’s Nurses Ball.

    Why can’t Days do better? Same old predictable plot twists. Great actors, horrible writing.

    Though I do love Garen and Shawn.

      Days sucks and they’ll try anything to bring some attention to the show. Hey, how about some decent writing?? Oh and I don’t need to see Caroline/Peggy McCay putting dollars in their pants.

      And the stripper thing was done a longgg time ago with Pete Jannings!

      Garen is hot 🙂

        Ces –

        LOL… I have to laugh….

        DAYS – SUCKS: !!!!!! there, I said it too.

        you’ll find me somewhere still standing on my soap box…. LOL.

        DAYS has: “SO MUCH ubber Talent…”

        when will they showcase with good story?

        Rafe and Kate better kiss and make up…. their romps are a feast to the eyes…

        you know it…. DAYS: duh? DAYS: supercouple action…..

        Rafe and Carrie….

        were smokin’ HOT… ubber HOT!

        Agreed on Rafe & Carrie – loved them!!

        I have been enjoying my free time by not watching Days.. was much easier than I thought to finally give up on it! Ces.. just let Days go.. you will have AmC and OLTL to watch now also.. We have given Days too many years to get better and they seem not to be able to.

      • Ces

        April 22, 2013 at 6:42 am

        Tsuds, You know, you’re right, I have given too much of my time to watch Days and it hasn’t gotten any better; it’s actually annoying to watch. I may have to free up an hour in my life and cut that one loose – heck, I barely pay attention to it when it’s on. GH is plenty for me to get my soap time in 🙂

    • Patrick

      April 19, 2013 at 12:33 pm

      I’d pray to the “Gods” non-stop –

      Why can’t Days do better? Same old predictable plot twists. Great actors, horrible writing.


      it’s agony at times… to even think beyond watching the show…trudging. wearily.


      Rafe strip tease’ING….. Hmmm.

      • Ces

        April 19, 2013 at 12:59 pm

        there’s the word: AGONY!! Painful to watch.. Painful that each day you hope “something” happens, but nothing ever does. Horrible, horrible writing…

        I do love Rafe & Kate but could have done without L.Koslow’s scenery chewing the other day. I mean, hasn’t Rafe had enough of that? I loved Rafe with Carrie and Days blew that shot! Love Galen Gering!

    • Scott (ATWT Fan)

      How could they? DAYS films 3-4 months in advance compared to GH. DAYS had it first, plus DAYS has done movie spoofs prior.

  3. Aria

    April 19, 2013 at 10:13 am

    Um GH. Already did it for the nurses ball, I know soaps copy each other but really?

    • Glen

      April 19, 2013 at 11:53 am

      DOOL is taped months in advance. Unless tptb over there are psychic, I’m sure they had no way of knowing that GH was planning a similar striptease. Just one of those coincidences (but a very eye-pleasing one).

      • Aria

        April 19, 2013 at 12:13 pm

        Yeah, I forgot dool tapes months in advance but like you said it will be eye pleasing so the more the merrier.

    I saw Magic Mile and these guys on network TV will not even be close..
    For one thing, it is network TV so the strip tease will be a tease but not a strip ..
    No need to get excited for nudity lol …

    • Patrick

      April 19, 2013 at 12:56 pm

      Days does knock it outa the park in the tantalizing dept.

  14. Deborah Kallus

    April 19, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    The idea of seeing Galen doing a strip tease is about the worst thing I could imagine. Unless his eyebrows grew long enough to cover his body. They almost do but not quite enough. I definitely won’t be watching that day. My eyes would need bleach and my brain would explode at the mere thought…..

    • Derek

      April 19, 2013 at 8:42 pm

      Ugh exactly. Why they picked the over 40 set to do this is beyond me. Brady is the hottest out of the three, but when you have men like EJ, Chad, Brian, and they picked these guys is lame.

      • Patrick

        April 20, 2013 at 1:06 am

        Rafe stood in line first.

        and I liked him.

      • shawn

        April 20, 2013 at 1:47 pm

        Why would EJ do it anyway. He’s not friends with Cameron.

      • Derek

        April 20, 2013 at 10:16 pm

        Neither are Rafe or Brady. At least EJ is the brother of Cameron’s sister. The point is the writers could have come up something different if they wanted to.

    Shawn Christian stripping?Please spare us.There is nothing attractive about that guy.EJ,Chad…could easily replace him.At least they’re hot,.

    • su0000

      April 20, 2013 at 1:34 pm

      They will not be any stripping they will be teasing..
      It will shirtless and some bump&grind, it is on no nasty network TV..

      Just a lil something to get ladies panting and smiling..

      • Imane Assi

        April 20, 2013 at 9:23 pm

        Maybe but I don’t see any appeal to Shawn Christian.He always looks dirty,sweaty and smelly.He may have a good body but no appeal whatsoever for me.Yet we’re supposed to believe that his character is God’s gift to women and they destroyed Chloe and Jack,two long time fan favorites, to prop him.

    No matter what supposed crappy things DAYS does, it’ll never be a match for those crappy comments from those who obviously can’t simply turn their tv off, get a life and let the rest of us enjoy our show. And btw, Shawn Christian is hot, so go see an optometrist: you need glasses, lol.

    Skelettor aka the diva who thought she would actually have a storyline when her on-camera husband quit from the show and her antics 😀

      April 27, 2013 at 11:09 pm

      that’s so funny!


      honestly… it’s pretty much cable…. here… save for the soaps…

      so there you have it…

      twisted and caluculated?


      i watched the Magic mike scenes with relish…

      and.. lo and behold….

      Rafe and Brady didn’t dissapoint…

      i thought Daniel overacted.. and that’s because of how hard the writers are forcing down…. our minds… the pairing of Daniel and someone anyone… done with him… and alas…. tired Jenn. daniel haggie maggies more tired than Jenn. and that’s not boding well for even Jenn… Grans Jewel is tired.

      Hot for you maybe.I find him dirty,sweaty and smelly.And his face? gly.He’s a very sweet and nice person but look wise.he sucks.Especially when compard to gorgeous and smoking hot hunks like GG,JS,EM,JKJ,….He’s so far away from their league..he’s barely average looking.But we’re,supposed to believe that he’s the hottest and all the women fall for him.Pure crap

REPORT: Days of our Lives Targets September Production Restart

Looks like Salem and Days of our Lives will be back in full-swing come September, if the target date holds true as revealed today by Deadline.

According to their sources, Corday Productions, who produces the long-running NBC daytime drama, sent out an email to cast members on Thursday notifying them of their intent to resume production come September 1st.

However for this article; reps for NBC, Corday and Sony Pictures TV declined to comment.

Days of our Lives has had enough shows banked through early October of this year, so was not pressed to get back into production amidst the coronavirus pandemic as much as CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (which went back into production a week and half ago), and The Young and the Restless and General Hospital who are targeting a mid-July restart.

All three of the shows, except for DAYS ran out of original episodes to air, back at the end of April of this year.

So, excited to hear that their may be plans ahead come fall for DAYS to come to back and tape new episodes? Comment below.

DAYS Elani Wedding (Photos): What Did You Think Of The Nuptials?

This week on Days of our Lives saw the first African-American couple to be married on-screen in the 54-year history of Days of our Lives.  Now while Lani (Sal Stowers) and Eli (Lamon Archey) tried before in a previous ceremony, this one did the job … they are now officially husband and wife!

The ceremony was attended by Lani’s dad, Abe Reynolds (James Reynolds), her mother Tamara Price (Marily McCoo), Billy Davis Jr.  as a former FBI mentor to Eli, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) – it was her restaurant after all and she is Eli’s grandmother.  Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) presided over the ceremony.

There were some unwelcome guests at the ceremony as well; leading the bride to question, are we doomed?  Why does this keep happening to us everytime we tried to get hitch!

However, fate was on Lani and Eli’s side this day, as even Gabi (Camila Banus) with her antics, and a shocking arrival from Vivian Alamain (Louise Sorel), couldn’t rain on this day.  Vivian even tried to shoot the bride, but thanks to Rafe (Galen Gering) saving the day and armed with news that her son Stefan (Brandon Barash) could be alive; he informs Viv firmly that she would be killing someone for the wrong reason, even though Vivian is in disbelief that her son is alive.  Next, she is whisked out of the ceremony.

Lani still feeling rattled by all the wedding interruptus gets a sign she should marry the man she loves; when her mother, who needed to go lie down earlier, as she was feeling faint, was able to show back up just in time to restart the wedding.


During the ceremony, Eli mentions the loss of little David Abraham and the struggles they went through, but how in the end it brought then closer together.  After the rings are exchanged and they are pronounced man and wife, the newlyweds “jump the broom” a wonderful tradition and a symbol of African-American heritage, where the sweeping of the broom signifies sweeping away all the bad energy.  After they sweep the broom, Elani jumps over it.

In a behind-the-scenes of the wedding segment released this week on the DOOL app, Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey talk about the inclusion of the ‘jump the broom’ moment in the episode, and how they suggested the idea to DAYS Co-EP Albert Alaar, and how  it was written into the episode.

So, what did you think of Lani and Eli’s wedding? Did you enjoy it? Let us know via the comment section below, but first check out this wedding photo gallery of the big day!
