DAYS OF OUR LIVES: A Bombshell Is Dropped On JJ!

Courtesy/NBC

This week on Days of our Lives, Gabi’s (Camila Banus) trial begins in the murder of Andre DiMera.

And as any soap fan knows, when you say “trial”, “courtroom”, or “witness stand”, someone is going to reveal a major secret that they have been trying to keep under wraps!

Well, secret one is gonna drop right on poor unsuspecting JJ (Casey Moss)! In the latest DAYS promo from NBC, Lani (Sal Stowers) admits on the stand that she slept with Eli (Lamon Archey)!  This is cause for JJ to loose his cool and punch out Eli.

Will JJ then finally learn that Lani is carrying Eli’s child, and not his?

Watch the promo after the jump and then weigh-in: Who do you want Lani to ultimately end up with?  JJ, Eli, or neither guy and she should just be a single mom? Comment below!

Good!!! Lani deserves everything that is about to hit her. I feel horrible for JJ, he deserves sooo much better than Lani.

Thank you, Karen….I’ve always been somewhat reticent saying something negative about Lani—-which is sooo not like me. I neither like the character nor dislike her…..she’s not necessary to the show, in my opinion.
I guess TPTB wanted to keep Abe within a family circle, after Lexi’s death?…..and, Theo is gone!!
I can’t say I feel sorry for Lani’s comeuppance.

ok…but when can we have some lighter moments…while the show is mostly good and holds my interest there is still too much gloom and doom!!!!

I guess the marriage is off. LOL

Neither guy should be saddled with her lying self.

Make her live with Julie, that’s the worst punishment imaginable.

Bwah hah ha ha ha! TRUTH!!!

That would be so funny. She would nag Lani’s ear off.

Wait until Julie finds out that Abigail is the one who killed Andre!!!! All her trash talking about Gabi and Gabi is innocent.

I do love Julie.

Frankly I do not care about Lani. My thought is she might lose the baby, which is never okay, but then Lani could leave town and never come back. They need to bring somebody on that has chemistry with Casey Moss. He deserves it!

Loni is a cheater and.a.liar and deserves to be alone …

Why would this subject even come up at Gabi’s trial?

If Andre’s murder had occurred the same night that Lani cheated, it might be necessary to mention it, as Gabi being with JJ would give her an alibi.

But this was two completely separate and unrelated events. How does Justin think this is going to help Gabi’s case (assuming this must be some legal strategy to bring it up at all in court)

LoL I was thinking the same thing –

I think it comes up cause Justin is asking why Lani went hard after Gabi when Gabi was talking about the evidence that was planted on her. Justin wanted to know why Lani had it out for her.

Jj is too cute for her!

Agreed. I’d be okay with JJ giving up on women for good.

Time for some episodes with JJ hanging out with Jesse Kristofferson at “The Spot.” JJ would be quite popular at “Unicorn Highway” (“the new gay club near the University…”).

It’s a good thing that he turned in his service pistol, as his suicidal tendencies are likely to recur once he discover that The Baby (his reason for renewed hope in living) isn’t his. Hopefully Tripp will be on-hand to catch JJ when he jumps off the ledge. (I seem to remember JJ’s father also falling off the stairs at Horton Center.)

I’m sure that cousins Sonny and Will would be willing to teach JJ the finer points of Beer Pong.

Great news! If JJ does find out the baby is Eli’s I’d imagine that’s when Lani would miscarry. If JJ, like Gabi, does not find out Eli is the father that info won’t come out til the baby needs a blood transfusion (the typical soap different baby daddy story standard)

Days continues to deliver!!!

DAYS delivers daring daytime drama and now has surpassed B&B in a couple demos in the ratings!

I think J.J., Eli, Gabi and Lani have shared enough of each other. Time for them to meet new love interests.

I’m a little behind in watching DOOL, but I can’t imagine how asking Lani who she slept with has anything to do with the murder investigation. Can’t wait to see what led up to this.

I was thinking maybe to show that Lani has it out for Gabi. Maybe Gabi told Justin about Lani sleeping with Eli. It’s the only reason I could think of, but I guess we’ll find out!

I feel bad for Lani, giving her this storyline was cruel and uncalled for. The haters love it, though. Typical.

I feel bad for JJ.I wonder if this will push him over the edge.First it is Abby now him,maybe.

I feel bad for JJ, and like Liam on B&B, his constant gushing and fawning is not only annoying but makes the story more frustrating to watch.

However, I do feel bad for Lani. She was very supportive of JJ when he accidentally shot Theo (she didn’t blame him) for a devastating situation like her father and Eli did and I do believe she’s hiding the truth from him now with good intentions. He DID try to commit suicide; she’s obviously concerned how the truth might effect him. As for cheating? I can totally understand why she thought he and Gabi were “together”. She didn’t set out to cheat, she didn’t betray him. It was a series of events…

What I do think, though, would be that she should have told him the truth, explain how devastated she was when she jumped to the wrong conclusion (he had told her, just as Hope had told Rafe, that he couldn’t see her anymore). Told him that she loved him and that they would, eventually, have their own children together.

Not easy but a necessary talk. But, then, it wouldn’t be a soap if they had that talk.

Looking forward to the truth coming out and what follows!

This would really be a bombshell and it doesn’t concern JJ.Off topic here Stephan sleeps with Abby- Gabby and she gets pregnant.Now wouldn’t that shock everyone.I think Marci looks better with black hair and I am not the only one who thinks this way.My best friend does too.

Now 15 years later at 36 years old the universe told me I was now ready to step into this role…Thank you ✨ …I am just beginning ✨”

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.
