Tomorrow on the Friday, November 21st episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives, Molly Burnett finally makes her on-screen re-emergence as trouble-always-seems-to-find-her Melanie Jonas!

Burnett exited the Salem canvas when she made the decision to leave the daytime drama after four years in 2012.  In story, Melanie left for Europe after that disaster of a twisted relationship mess between her, Chad, and Gabi.  Now, Melanie shows up back in Salem!  But, what brings her to town? Clearly, she will get a chance to catch-up with dad, Daniel (Shawn Christian) and little Parker, Grandma Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) and best friend Brady (Eric Martsolf), but there is something more going down!

As we know and has been previewed:  There is a secret that Melanie is harboring, and we have heard the rumors that she also will have a romantic interest in Salem ,,, and she will also have a potential new friend, perhaps  the audience doesn’t know about?  So many questions!

To try to eek out some answers and tease Melanie’s homecoming, On-Air On-Soaps sat down for this video interview with the beloved Burnett to try to get her to spill the beans! You will have to watch to see how we did! One thing is for certain, with an actress as unique and dynamic, if a story that contains both romance and intrigue are written right, Molly will play it for all it’s worth and then some.

Now after the jump, watch On-Air On-Soaps one-on-one interview with Molly Burnett! Then weigh-in: what do you think Melanie’s secret is?  Who will be her love interest?  What do you think of her friend, if that holds true? Are you glad Molly is back on DAYS?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Haven’t always been into the Melanie character because of who they’ve had her working with (liked her more early on in the Max/Chelsea/Nick orbit) but there’s no denying that Molly Burnett herself is a delight – she has a smile that is infectious. I know the show will be relying on her heavily – best of luck to her this go-around.

Welcome back Molly Burnett, I have missed Molly so much. She is a wonderful actress and I love her smile. Very friendly lady. Melanie is a fire cracker, Molly has great chemistry with Suzanne Rogers and Shawn Christian. Molly Burnett is so pretty and she is 26 years old. When Molly decided to leave Days Of Our Lives in 2012, I was devasted. But I am so happy that she is back, where she belongs. Also Melissa Archer cannot wait to see her as Serena.

Watched this week’s episodes last night in the background while doing laundry and texting, haha. Hate to say it-but I find the show boring now. I can’t stand Theresa. Eve and JJ keep having the same conversation over and over. Paige is boring. Daniel being the hero has grown old. Jordan has zero chemistry with everyone. I may take a break and tune back in when Eileen Davidson returns next year. I did that a while back. Honestly, I feel the same way about General Hospital…

The pace of Days is very slow. The pace of GH (while still faster than Days) has slowed considerably over the last couple months.

I agree with others that the PACE of Days of our Lives is reeeealllly sloooow….good grief get on with it already. The character of Paige is about as interesting as a box of Kleenex. I was cheering JJ on when he finally turned on Eve and shouted “I don’t HAVE to do anything you say!” (or however he phrased it) and I thought, yeah, there you go, time to grow a pair and tell that witch to butt out. That storyline is preposterous anyway, JJ looks like a Drug store Delivery boy and Eve looks like she should be buying… Read more »

So happy to see Mel back!! If they only could bring back Nathan, I would be thrilled! Then we could finally have the romance between them that should’ve always been. 🙂

I hope Melanie’s love interest is JJ! That would be a perfect fit! JJ likes older women! Jennifer and Daniel are on the outs. This will give Dannifer something else to overcome. It will be great! My second choice of a love interest for Melanie is Beady! Would love to see Melanie and Theresa go head to head over Brady! Then when Kristen comes back she will have to face two of them! That would be a HOOT! Either of these story lines would be great! Maybe the writers could even do both! Have a Brady-Melanie-JJ triangle with all of… Read more »

So happy Melanie is back and is with her soulmate Brady. Honestly, I feel it is up to Eric Martsoff and Molly Burnett to save Days of our Lives! They always had the “it” factor and now with EJ and Sami gone, they will be the next super couple of Days. Lots of drama to come, but with the new writers, I know this couple can stay the course!

DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”

Robert Clary, DAYS, Y&R and ‘Hogan’s Heroes’ Favorite, Passes Away at 96

Very sad news to report.  Robert Clary, who became a soap opera fan favorite for his roles as Robert LeClair on Days of our Lives, and Pierre Roulland on The Young and the Restless has died at the age of 96.

Clary, best known to primetime fans for his role as  Cpl. Louis LeBeau, on the comedy series, Hogan Heroes, passed away on Wednesday according to his granddaughter, Kim Wright, who informed the Hollywood Reporter.  Robert was the last surviving member of the iconic cast.

Throughout his daytime career, Clary always sang in his roles and is most remembered as Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) best friend, Robert LeClair.  The two would always perform at “Doug’s Place” in story.  Clary played the role from 1972–1973, 1975–1983, and again from 1986–1987.

During a break from DAYS, Robert went over to Y&R and created the role of Pierre Roulland when the CBS daytime drama first premiered from 1973-1974, and once again sang and acted on the show.  Later in his career, Clary appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of Pierre Jourdan from 1990-1992.

On Clary’s passing, Y&R shared: “The #YR Family sends our condolences to the family and loved ones of Robert Clary known to the Y&R audiences as “Pierre” on our debut episode!” 

B&B also honored Robert by posting: The Bell Family & @BandB_CBS re sad to learn of the passing of #RobertClary, who portrayed Pierre Jourdan on @BandB_CBS from 1990-1992. Robert was a talented actor, a kind and courageous man, and a friend to all who knew him.”

Four decades into his career, Robert, who was Jewish, came forward with the fact that was incarcerated for 31 months in an Auschwitz concentrate camp, and tattooed with the identification “A-5714” on his left forearm. He was the only one of his captured family to make it out alive.

Clary was married for 32 years to the late Natalie Cantor, the second daughter of Eddie Cantor. She passed away in 1997.
