Oh, my God!!! No way!!! I love Bonnie!!! I was sad when they sent her out of Salem but so happy to see Judi is going to do both characters. What a way to go, Ron!!! I knew from the get-go you were going to start hitting home runs the moment you started at DAYS. Can’t wait for the other surprises I know you’re going to hit us with!!!

Ron had ONE chance to prove to me that he could be the last headwriter for DAYS. I haven’t even watched the first episode….just read reviews….and already….he has FAILED!!! Not only did Marlena have a twin sister on the show…she has had this Hattie look alike luring in the background for 15 years amounting to nothing!!!! And the Bonnie Lockhart as written by Reilly was nothing more than a ridiculous cartoon. After doing double and doppelgänger stories on GH ad nauseous…Ron’s first episodes are more of the same??? AND…Anjelica…a woman who would ahem charitably be 72 by now…is still lusting… Read more »

I have my lotto scratchers ready!

I hope Bonnie marries Lucas while masquerading as Adrienne which culminates in “Adrienne” having her very own Huge Horton Ornament! That would end the storyline because everyone will know the tacky ornament is really for Bonnie!

I’m ready to laugh (and win the lottery)!

Thank you, Ron and Judi!!

A special thanks to Michael for the DAYS coverage!

Not into the doppelganger stories at all!!! Don’t need Hattie or Bonnie. God this has been overdone for decades now. I’d like to see some sophisticated storylines show up and not the same old recycled stuff that treats the audience like they’re dumb. I’ll be skipping these episodes…I just have no interest. I hope Ron wraps this up quickly and this is not part of his entry…that would be highly disappointing!

I have to agree with you, Yvonne – I feel like some of the storylines are beyond far-fetched and often, I feel almost insulted. I also agree that redundant plots that have been done-to-death are tiresome.
The writers need to come up up with some new ideas and something a bit
more reflective of today’s society.

I’m with you John. In the meantime I’m forwarding past the ridiculousness. I’m waiting for Sammy and Will…I hope that’s not a disappointment too.

Unfortunately…this is what Ron does. This is not a short term entry thing. This is how he wrote for 3.5 years at GH. The fact that his very first episode is blatantly about doppelgangers is just a promise of more to come. I will not be watching because it makes NO sense. Anjelica Deveraux is a 75 year old woman! Seriously….lusting after Justin, a 55 year old man she slept with 30 years ago???? Seriously…we need some sort of character development and motivation that makes sense!!

Ridiculous. As I said to John above, my fast forward button is on.

Really? Bring Bonnie back? Gee, I don’t know. But, I will keep my peace until after the fact.
How different can this possibly be from all the other look-alike stories? Good versus evil? That’s how it play out…over and over.
Hmmmm….I love Judi Evans-Luciano—-she can act —be anybody—still; I just don’t know……

Haven’t we all had enough of “look-a-like” characters? 30 to 40 years ago they were writing stories like this, it was all right in it’s day but isn’t it time for Soaps to grow if the genre is indeed to survive?

Eric Buchanan

30-40 years ago? Well from my count, Y&R (the top rated soap) has done at least 4 of these stories in the past 10 years….Patty Williams and the look alike Psychiatrist. Sheila coming back with Phyliss’ face, Sheila’s sister having Lauren’s face, and finally Jack and his look-alike South American drug lord.

I don’t know how old you are, Eric but trust me 30-40 years ago Soaps were doing this “evil twin” type of thing or someone coming to town who “looks exactly like” so and so. Forty years ago on One Life to Live the character of Pat was duped by her twin sister and substituted for her while keeping her tied up and trapped. On All My Children, the character of Natalie was kept down a well while her crazy “twin” Janet took over her life. So yes, it’s been done to death and even on the night time show… Read more »

Also about 40 years ago Deidre Halls twin sister played Marlena’s twin sister Samantha and had Marlena take her place at a mental sanitarium while she took over Marlena’s life with then then fiance Don Craig.

While its a look a like character, Bonnie was fun and an all around great character. I’m going to enjoy Judi playing her again. However, as much as I like Adrienne, she has been a bit boring lately but with Ron on board now hopefully they will either utilize her as both characters or write Adrienne out and keep Bonnie!

I’m not sure that I like that there will be trouble in John and Marlenas love life, I think they have had their tme with romantic tooing and frowing. And really we like seeing them in their roles of giving support and wisdom to their family and friends in Salem. Leave the romantic drama to the young ones.

Also when Angelica was last in Salem, isn’t that when Marlena was presumed dead? How does Angelica even know about Marlena?

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

Photo: JPI

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

Photo: JPI

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Photo: JPI

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
