@Jimh.
Hey, Jimmy,
Don’t ever feel you can’t express how or what you feel to me, as I’m sure to anyone else on these sites.
And, you’re not alone. I spent this entire week at the Church, and soup kitchen and I hear stories such as yours on a daily basis.
This is why I urge you to seek help…..talk to a social worker. I understand that your financial problems are compounded by you collective health.
But, since you and your sister have been your dad’s caregivers, you should have gotten some compensation for that. There are such programs.
I know things look bleak right now….you find yourself in dire straits……I understand; who am I to speak to you about rainbows and butterflies?
Things will get better. You are an American citizen….entitled to help. Have faith, my friend…it keeps me going.
Merry Christmas to you, too. And you do not sound horrible….feel free to ‘talk’ any time….good therapy. Love you.

thats a no brainer..Elizabeth Hubbard; if not her, Erika Slezak; time to bring these ladies back to daytime!

ERIKA SLEZAK without a doubt – maybe she can breathe some life into this Soap which needs all the help it can get.

Erika Slezak. Need I say more? Can’t believe that no one’s hired her for a permanent role on a soap since OLTL.

I could care less…because as you say, Mr. Fairman, it won’t be for another six months. Plus, it’s a small role. I’d rather read a story about how great Judi Evans is doing as Adrienne stricken with cancer. She’s hitting one home run after another and that’s happening now.

I spoke too soon. Mr. Fairman is featuring a story with Judi Evans!

Celia

Judi has been wonderful, hasn’t she? I had not had a good cry in a while …..nothing has been worthwhile.
What got me the most, 4ever, was when Kate walked into Adrienne’s hospital room….oh, my gosh!!!!! The pained expression on their faces was palpable…..the compassion on Kate’s face more than I can say….impressive!!

Why does the show have to keep filming so fa in advance? To answer the question, I would put Kimberlin Brown’s name in for the role—she needs something to do in front of he camera and she would be great on DAYS.

for the love of God… NBC / Sony / @ DAYS, simply put

Wouldn’t it though?

Susan Lucci would be great in the part .

Johnny Grant
Johnny Grant

Of course I don’t know for sure, but I think Susan Lucci is too associated with Erica Kane or the similar gal she played for a few seasons on Devious Maids. Don’t get me wrong I love Susan Lucci I just don’t know if fans can accept her in a role that’s totally serious, she has a funny side to her and I see very little humor injected into the scripts at Days of Our Lives — they clearly do not know how to interweave comedy with drama.

Hi All….Sophisticated, check….beauty, check….age range, check….great actress, check….Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Colleen Zenk.

She’s all those things!

Although I have never been a fan of Days, and as a long time viewer of ATWT, she was the first person that popped into my head. The description of the character sounds like it fits her to a tee. She was one of my faves on the show and it would be wonderful to see her back on screen

Ray
Ray

I would LOVE to see Colleen Zenk. I would love to see her play Kate’s sister. Seeing Kate going from one bad relationship to another is getting tiresome. Lets see a new dynamic, with her interacting with someone new. Sign Zenk to a long-term contract. She is gorgeous.

This 6-month window is ridiculous. It doesn’t allow time to react when things aren’t clicking.

How about going the nighttime soap route and go with Tracy Scoggins or Sheree Wilson?

Robin Christopher or Florencia Lozano please….a tad young perhaps, but sophisticated beauties indeed!

Colleen Zenk! She needs to be back in daytime; and given that they are shut down for two-months, wouldn’t that mean they are 3-4 months ahead, especially since they shut down a month earlier this year, too?

What about Lauren Koslow? She’d be perfect, lol.

The possibilities seem endless. Collen Zenk, Kim Zimmer, Julia Duffy,Kathleen Noone, Linda Dano, Morgan Fairchild,

How fun would it be if they brought back Gloria Loring as this new character! She’s a fan favorite and they switched actor roles before! She’s still looking great!

ROBIN STRASSER!!!!!!

Robin Strasser is my first thought too. I understand she lives in California now.

Celia

Good call. Love Robin, Llanviewer….actually, anyone of the ladies from OLTL will do.
Also, Susan Lucci? I know she just turned seventy. We’re December babies….day, not year…LOL.
But, she looks so good, she could pass for fifty.

That would be cool

There are man women from soaps cancelled I would like to see on screen again. We are blessed with many talents. I wish DAYS did not work on this insane advance schedule. It may be a budget salve for producers and NBC, but creatively, I think it has disadvantages.

JMER
JMER

Anything is better for a budgeting strategy than Valentini’s block taping. It ruins the pacing of stories. Trust me.

James R. Poissant

All these names I’m seeing are awesome suggestions for the role—every single one of these ladies could pull it off with no problem!!!

Llanviewer717
Llanviewer717

Why is this show still taping 6 months in advance? I thought NBC wanted them to stop that and go to a normal daytime taping schedule.

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

After the present production break, DAYS will be five months ahead, Llanviewer717.

NBC only stated they “wish” DAYS didn’t have their large tape to air schedule. That wish turned into a rumor that it was mandatory. The truth is if NBC wanted a shorter tape to air schedule, then they would have to give more money to DAYS and Sony who have to have this production schedule in order to not run out of money.

Different topic: Kassie DePaiva was on yesterDAYS show! I believe this was to be her contract comeback, but that was changed due to her illness, so I don’t know how long she’ll appear before she had to get treatment. It seems she won’t appear that long this go-around, but DAYS really did have big plans for her.

I hope Mr. Fairman interviews her about her health/treatments and her present DAYS doings as well as what is onscreen now.

LOVE all the posts….

Beth Chamberlain, ex-Beth, GL
Colleen Zenk , ex-Barbara , ATWT
Robin Crhistopher, ex-Skye, GH

it’s possible to love these women in equal measure… just delight

Colleen Zenk for the job. aside from the Snyders…. Babs will always be held in high regard. LOVE her.

jake hernandez

Marj Dusay would be another great possibility

Well, whoever they select I hope they do right by the actress. We know how many time a fan favorite comes on board to great fanfare and then…. I do like the idea of Colleen Zenk as well. Classy, beautiful and can play ruthless but can have a degree of empathy for others. If she were brought on, make it a long term role and have Trent Dawson play a role in her business/organization. GOLD!!

Robin Strasser if they are looking for mature… love her…

Kelly Sullivan also would be terrific if they could get her

Celia

Hi, Elite,
I love Kelly Sullivan, but, she is too young, I think…..well, for the ‘mature’ woman they are seeking.
She is nowhere near 55.

marcy walker!!!( eden, santa barabara)
would love to see her and a matinez reunited on another nbc soap!
keep her and pit her against eduardo as two citizens of the law fighting the same cause albeit taking different methods…slow burn and bring them together romantically in a different take from cruz and eden from sants barabra!
cruz and eden were supercouple royalty …days could use a new supercouple!! the pairing could generate buzz…

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Jack Wants His Memory Back, But Do You Want Him To Reunite With Jennifer … Or Stay With Eve?

Since his return to Salem on New Year’s Eve of 2018, Jack Deveraux (Matt Ashford) has had no recollection of his past, although there have been some mini-breakthroughs along the way, but none big enough or strong enough to get him out of the clutches of Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) and back into the arms of his longtime love, Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves).

Photo: JPI

Next week on Days of our Lives, looks like the story further heats up (according to the latest DAYS promo from NBC) where Jack tells Eve he wants his memory back.  She had held the cards to Dr.  Rolf’s formula and to the serum that could restore Jack’s memory, until Xander (Paul Telfer) got his hands on it, and turned it over in time to save the life of Will Horton (Chandler Massey).

Photo: JPI

So, now what will happen?  Will Eve play nice and truly help Jack get his memory back, or will she once again play dirty pool?  Meanwhile, look for Jennifer to make one more impassioned plea for Jack to remember their time together, and possibly decide it’s of no use and she must move on with her life.  But, will Jack regain his memory in time to be reunited with Jennifer? If he gets his memory back, could somehow he still choose to be with Eve?

Who do you want Jack to end up with? Are you #TeamJennifer of #TeamEve?  Let us know but first watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below, then share your choice via the comment section below.

Olivia Rose Keegan Posts Parting Thoughts As Her Final Episode As Claire Airs On DAYS

By now, many viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives have watched Tuesday’s episode, which saw Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) being wheeled out of a hospital room and on her way to the Bayview Sanitarium to deal with what led her to become a Salem firestarter after her latest attempt to torch Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and then herself.

In story, realizing she is severely troubled, Claire gets the news from her parents, Belle (Martha Madison) and Shawn (Brandon Beemer) that she won’t be facing prison time for attempted murder, but instead, she does need to be put away in a mental facility and leave right away at the judges orders.  That sets the stage for Olivia Rose Keegan to share her final scenes with many of her longtime co-stars before making her exit.

As her time on DAYS on-air came to a close, Olivia took to her Instagram to express her parting thoughts and the opportunity to play Claire, and be a part of the iconic soap opera

Keegan wrote: “Thank you for the best 4 years of my life.  To everyone who watches the show: I cannot thank you enough for sticking with Claire through the good, bad, and batsh*t.  Reading everyone’s comments/tweets this past week has been the most overwhelmingly amazing thing— It means more than you know   I also owe a huge thank you to the @nbcdays writers for giving me an opportunity to dig my nails into some fascinating material with this past storyline— as well as shine a light onto mental health awareness.  It would be too difficult to explain how much I love every single person in my @nbcdays family. It was a 4 year dream. I met lifelong friends, learned an infinite amount, and simply loved every minute of it.  Farewell from Salem’s newest pyro ”

Make sure to check out her exit interview with her co-stars, Rob Scott Wilson (Ben), Victoria Konefal and Brandon Beemer, exclusively on the DOOL app released this afternoon to hear the groups thoughts on the cabin fire twist, and Olivia’s exit from the Days canvas, and more.

So, sad to see Olivia make her exit from DAYS?  Do you hope she will come back for another turn as Claire?  Comment below.
