I think one of my favorite story lines was when Sammy Brady kidnapped her sister and was going to give Belle to a baby selling ring
Also When Days showed Sammy using diet pills to loose weight. Showing what happens when you do this.. Considering I am a Days watcher from the beginning. With both Tom and Alice Horton were still alive ✅

Nice interview!!! I didn’t even recognize Adrienne when she first came on. She looked so different and then with the new voice.

I didn’t find it funny in the least, just inane and ridiculous. I thought the whole limited series was unnecessary to be honest – unless, they were testing the waters to see if DOOL would survive as an on-line series only, and I believe it could.

Beyond Salem was great on so many levels — writing, humor, inside jokes, winks to the audience, acting, chemistry, and its “film” look rather than video tape. Peter Porte, Zach Tinker, and Scott Bailey were great additions to the cast. My hat is off to all involved. More of this, please!

My grandmother is beyond excited about this. She schooled me on “Days” ever since I can remember. She has been watching since its inception, making her a font of info and knowledge—-She’s a great storyteller–with spice.
I must add that today ( day off, thankfully), I had a most satisfying laugh—-Bill Hayes is the best at characterizing Doug as the proverbial “Dirty Old Man”. Made my day–so funny—still laughing.
Kudos to the writers—hoping to have a little more, subtle humor.

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
