Archey took to his Twitter account to share his enthusiasm on the addition of Harry and Way to the cast of DAYS: “I understand that everyone isn’t going to like everything, BUT bringing Jackee & Precious to #Days was such a great move! Not only racially & culturally needed but they bring so much character and larger than life personalities to the show. #AppreciationTweet @nbcdays”

 

In addition, Archey spoke of having Harry join DAYS, in an interview with WeAreEntertainmentNews.com for its Black History Month celebration.  He expressed: “Working with Jackée, how can you even describe it? Oh my God, she is so funny. We felt her impact the very first day working with her. You feel something when you work with her. You can actually see, feel and know things are different and for the better. There’s a different vibe. It just feels good when she steps on set. It’s relaxed. It’s fun. I can’t tell you how happy I am that she’s here and a part of Days. Sal (Stowers) and I have talked about it and she feels the same way. It really does feel good.”

Lamon also recently teased on his Instagram story: “There will be quite a few new African Americans on the show. They are characters that the fans have been waiting to see, and will be happy to see. So, things will be looking a little different in Salem which is a good thing.”

Days should have thought about diversity and inclusion when they let the actors that play the gay couple Will and Sonny go.

Yes, of course, turn a racial conversation into a LGBTQ+ one, and I state this as a gay man myself. Two completely different situations.

There is black representation on Days; diversity and inclusion isn’t just about race. I say that as a black woman.

Let’s hope not. It’s bad enough we have 28 year old Claire, when her mother, Belle wasn’t even born until 1994! Will, Sonny, and Gabi, barely appear to be out of their teens themselves. They would look ridiculous with a SORASed teenager.

Almost as ridiculous as Will actually being older than his stepdad, EJ. But you aren’t supposed to remember that, of course!

So yeah, Will & Sonny should be back. But leave Ari as a little kid.

Just great another larger than life character; as if Days doesn’t have enough of those. How about actors that can act and do quality drama?? This show has lost it’s way. I’ll take the minority characters on Y/R and GH any day of the week over with RC is giving fans. Those writers are writing quality drama and these actors bring it every chance given. The last time I saw they are still called “daytime drama” for a reason.

Mike Manning On His DAYS Departure: “Thank You to NBC, to Everyone Involved, and Most of All to the Fans That Were Along for the Ride With This Crazy Character.”

Now it’s the end of the line for Charlie on Days of our Lives, his portrayer Mike Manning took to his Instagram for some parting words of his time in Salem playing this very bad dude.

As Days fans know, many people wanted Charlie dead, and now he is! Thus begins a good old fashioned soap murder mystery on the long-running NBC soap opera, the question now is, who ultimately did the deed?

After getting a copy of the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, which features, “Who Killed Charlie?” on the cover, Manning shared in a post on Friday: Everybody has a motive to want this guy dead.” 😂 Not exactly how I pictured my first soap magazine cover, but at least we’re having a good time with it. It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing. I’ll always be grateful for you.  Excited to share what’s next as soon as I can.   Arrivederci. -Charlie/Mike”

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
