DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Whitley to Marlena, “How Can I Not Know Who You Are! You’re Just The Queen Diva of My Favorite Soap Opera”


On Thursday’s July 27th recap of Days of our Lives, Marlena (Deidre Hall) comes to visit Whitley (Kim Coles) who is in the interrogation room at the Salem PD.  Whitley, who has had a psychotic break, sees the good doc walk in and exclaims, “Oh, my heavens. What are you doing here?”

Whitley is beyond thrilled to see her. Marlena asks if she knows who she is, and Whitley says, “How can I not know who you are? You’re just the queen diva of my favorite soap!”   In the twist, Whitley believes Marlena is Charlemagne Delacroix from Body & Soul.  And of course, in actuality, Whitley is correct.  For it was Deidre Hall as Charlemagne in the fictitious soapy send up that Abe (James Reynolds) was watching while in captivity at Whitley’s apartment.

In the present, Marlena tells Whitley she is a psychiatrist who is here to help her.  She explains that she knows that Whitley blames herself for her husband’s death, which is why she tried to replace him with Abe. Marlena also tells Whitley, she’s not Paulina Price. That in fact, she is Whitley King.


It’s at that moment that Whitley voices: “But I don’t want to be Whitley King.”  She knows that if she is Whitley that means she killed her husband and has nothing to live for.  A guilt-ridden Whitley doesn’t feel she deserves help, but Marlena says otherwise.

Suddenly, the door flings open and the real Paulina (Jackée Harry) enters the interrogation room. Paulina intensely informs Whitley that Abe doesn’t even recognize her, as he still has amnesia even after being rescued.  Whitley states, “If there’s anything I can do to help.” At the moment, Paulina bitch-slaps her, adding, “You can shut your damn mouth!”  Marlena tells Paulina to leave, but before she does she rants at Whitley for the hurt she has caused her family and specifically, Abe.


So, what did you think of the Whitley’s line to Marlena being the ‘queen diva’ of her favorite soap, which is also referring to Deidre Hall’s reign as the longtime favorite on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

I loved the episodes of Body & Soul. So much fun!

I don’t think they portray real life situations for example when loni as saying good bye to her father & Paulina b 4 going back to prison. She didn’t give her brother Theo hug,which in real ife she would have. I am also tired of having to wait a week or more to learn what happened in a Friday cliff hanger. i.e., when Loni found Abe, we had to wait more than a week to find out what happened. They drag things out for too long….I know it is for ratings & to build suspense, but sometimes it is carried to far. Also when Loni was missing, the first thing they would have done was check location of ankle monitor.

DAYS really feels like a parody of itself. It has for a long time. Nothing can be taken seriously anymore, everything is pure camp and played for unintentional laughs. This story was ridiculous from the get-go, and the callback to Marlena being possessed REALLY didn’t help.

Things have gotten beyond ridiculous. I should have stopped watching when they did that absurd devil story. I don’t know how the writers weren’t fired. Now they expect us to believe that Kristen’s litany of crimes from drugging Sarah to kidnapping and multiple jailbreaks are ignored because some fancy footwork got her pardoned, but she gets full custody when it was never requested. Charges were never brought against Brady for the gun, so legally, he also has a clean slate, and anyway, threats don’t compare to what Kristen did. No judge would ever bring Phillip into it because the situation was not related to Rachel and again, not guilty. If anything, she should have declared both of them unsafe and put the kid in a foster home, which would have created more compelling drama. Realistically, Rachel has hardly spent any time with Kristen, who has been too busy evading the law and spending time in prison to bond with her daughter, so there is no reason for Rachel to be so adamant about wanting to be with her mother. Also, she wanted her parents to be together so it doesn’t make sense for her to suddenly go against Brady. All in all, poor writing.

I think Whitley really is a sick woman. Once she gets the proper help, she could be arecurring character we see from time to time.

Adam Caine Reprises His Role of Edmund Crumb on Days of our Lives

Here’s a welcome blast from the past! Coming up on Days of our Lives, look for the return of Adam Caine who reprises his role as Susan Banks’ beloved former boyfriend and husband, Edmund Crumb.

It has been 25 years since Adam played the role of Edmund, as he was only on the long-running soap opera for four memorable months.

Now, according to the latest Soap Opera Digest, Caine returns at the beginning of October in scenes with Tamara Braun (Ava) and Steve Burton (Harris).  With Ava trying to remember what happened the night Susan (Stacy Haiduk) ‘died’ and her part in it, plus the two being in the run, it shall be interesting just how they try to locate or bump into Mr. Crumb!

Previously, DAYS viewers first saw Caine play the whimsical Edmund Crumb alongside Eileen Davidson’s original version of Susan. Together, they created some of the more hilarious romance segments ever on a soap opera. Eventually, Edmund and Susan married in April of 1998.  The couple moved back to Edmund’s home country of England to live and that is the last we have seen of him, that is until now!

So, what do you think will happen when Edmund reappears on Days of our Lives? Will he be reunited with Susan Banks, now played by Stacy Haiduk? Comment below.

Jen Lilley Signs Off at Days of our Lives: “Playing Jeanne Theresa Donovan Off and On for the last 10 Years Has Taught Me So Much About Empathy and Grace”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jen Lilley will wrap her short-term run as Theresa Donovan. Lilley came back to reprise her role to a be a part of the on-screen memorial for Victor Kiriakis, and to honor one of her her all-time favorite scene partners, the late John Aniston.

While Lilley explained in interviews with the press, that she gave the series a 3 to 4 week window of time she would be available to reprise the role, she noted the long-running soap opera wrote more episodes and story for the character; thus the part will be turned over to another actress for the next leg of Theresa’s return story.

Meanwhile, through the years, Lilley came under fire over her run on DAYS being a devout Christian, and taking on the role of the troublemaking Theresa.  She fired back in one interview, “Why should I play a role like this,’ you know? That’s been something I’ve been asked over and over again, by Christians, like,‘How can you be a Christian and play this role?’ And the truth of the matter is that from a human perspective, Theresa’s kind of a horrible person, but from a God perspective, she’s exactly who Christ came and died for.”

With her final episode streaming on Peacock on Friday, September 22nd, Lilley took to her Instagram to share her sentiments on her Salem journey over the years.

Jen shared: “Last week of me exploring this girl’s shenanigans on screen. Playing Jeanne Theresa Donovan off and on for the last 10 years has taught me so much about empathy and grace. I have enjoyed every moment of her hilarious sass and ferocity, layered with brokenness. To the cast and crew at @dayspeacock, I love you forever. You’re my family. And to the best fans a girl could ask or hope for: remember there is no pit so deep you could ever find yourself in where God’s love cannot find you still. You are never beyond redemption. You are called by grace and marked with love. Thank you for supporting me on this decade long journey. #Days #RIPJohnAniston #ripvictorkiriakis #DOOL”

No word yet if in the future, and with Lilley’s busy filming schedule (once the SAG-AFTRA and writers strikes are resolved) for Great American Family movies and other projects, if she would be available to return to DAYS should the show decide to write for the character.

So, are you sad to see Jen exit the canvas as Theresa? Curious just who and how will take over her role? There have been plenty of online rumors that a certain actress currently on the show is taking over the part. Comment below.
