Well thank Hell for that!

Actually surprised they got two years, given the trainwreck of ReRon’s writing, but maybe they’ll take the hint, hire some competent writers, and get the ratings up over the next two years, so we aren’t all nervous as a hooker in church when the next renewal comes up!

I don’t believe that any new writers will be able to fix the train wreck that is now DOOL not after the current debacles. Jumping ahead one year so all of sudden we are given Kristin, Sarah, Xander and kidnapped baby? Hope Brady removed from the show? Jennifer Devereaux removed from the show? Making Abigail crazy again because the writers don’t know what else to do? Killing off Laura Horton because it was too difficult to write a well crafted story line showing her having to deal with both continued condemnation and seeking forgiveness from Gwen, Jack, Jennifer, Abigail and… Read more »

That is SO unexpected! I’m so happy for the Days actors, crew, etc. I’m shocked that it was for a two year deal. They need better writers. It’s past time to give Ron, head writer his walking papers. And bring Greg Meng back as EP. What surprising and wonderful news about the two year renewal… it’s made my day. Go Days! Improvements are needed across the board. Bring back Maggie and Victor when they are ready to come back. I’m speculating that they away because of Covid. And, give Cady McClain a contract. And, get back the old Claire. And… Read more »

John Anniston may never agree to come back to DOOL. At age 87, he may choose to enjoy retirement.

Well, I think John Aniston will return briefly, someday soon, I hope, and perhaps the show will have Victor pass away at some point. The actor who plays Doug is like 94 or something and we last saw him, and Julie last fall/Xmas especially when Jennifer and Jack had a storyline going on. Hopefully, Maggie will return too! I think if it’s about retirement for the older actors that’s cool and I would respect their decisions. My hope is that I would like to see them all return someday soon for closure, if need be, or when they may feel… Read more »

Now its time to hire a writing team that can create character-driven stories.

I watch the show, and I’m glad that it has been renewed – That being said, holy smoke do they EVER need some innovative Writers on this show – I don’t mind new characters coming aboard, and I respect and encourage diversity, but they need to write some interesting story lines, they can’t just keep having Kristin putting on a rubber mask and pretending to be Kate or Nicole or Sara…I mean, it’s enough already. Next thing you know she’ll be putting on a rubber mask and will pretend to be Victor!

Kirsten needs a rest! Put her back in jail. And force Eileen to return so we can pretend the last character run never happened. What a farce! Eileens run was complex and she made Kirsten human. This Kirsten wannabe is bad comic relief. Yikes

Love all the new sets. The show looks modern and invested in!

More Justin! More Steve and Kayla! More Tripp and Allie! More Ava/Rafe/ Nicole…abd Erics return plsss?!

Congrats Days! Keep up the great entertaining! Thank you!

It’s about D time! SO glad for this change up from one to two. The yearly “will they or won’t they” story was becoming really annoying. TPTB know they should renew.

Happy to hear this—-but, I question some of the wicked roads the writers seem to take. What’s up with Xander and Nicole? Anything? Not that I would mind—-both statuesque—she beautiful; he soooo Hot!!
Just this: Why? I guess Eric is not returning and Ari is pregnant? Nicole must hook up with someone,, right? Xander? Because they’re both so miserable?
Then there are the kidnappings and the masks. Holy cow!! Enough. It’s laughable. Kristen is built like a man—yet, she can pass off as Kate, and curvy Nicole. Yeah, yeah…it’s a soap…..

PS—-Is Rafe hung up on Nicole as much as she is on him? Dating Eva as a distraction?

Satan

Rafe is still hung up on Hope, but she’s apparently not coming back. Oddly enough, that puts him in the same boat as Nicole, since Eric also seems to be permanently absent. The Ava pairing seems strange, but it’s not a first for Rafe. He was also hooking up with Ben’s sister Jordan, so it’s not like being attracted to criminals with mental issues is a new thing for him. That being the case, he’s probably better off with Ava than with somebody like Gwen. At least Ava seems to be trying to make a break from her psycho &… Read more »

You are correct, of course, Satan—– As far as I’m concerned Nicole has had cheating on her mind for months—–She’s had the hots for Rafe since forever—ergo, this remorseful behavior is pathetic. As for Rafe, he’s been hungry for many a woman, if I remember correctly. He married Sami ( love her—she’s my fave on the show) —his opposite on all counts. Now it’s Ava ( thanks for the spelling correction). Lest I forget—Kate!! Go Xander—-you got it——the holier-than-thou Eric left for parts unknown, leaving his wife with an itch. My problem is wiith women ( or men) who will… Read more »

So we have two more years, but of what? A lot of people think it means we will have better stories. One can only hope. Iam so sick of the one woman show with Kristen, when all I want to see is them cart her back off to jail and throw the key away.I really laughed the other day when she told the unconscious Kate that she was glad she still wore a size two. Did she actually think she could get into that? She’s twice Kate’s size! I don’t care for Nicole’s meddling ways on a good day, but… Read more »

No, when Allie referred to her “gay brother”, she was talking about Will. Though it is odd that she’s been in Salem several months now, and hasn’t mentioned Johnny or Sydney at all. Presumably they were all living together with Sami & Elvis in Europe. If Nu-Elvis is going to be relocating to Salem (at least for a while) then that probably means the kids are coming with him. But then, it’s almost summer, and that’s the “traditional” time for SORASed teenagers to show up. Though Johnny – being Allie’s twin – should be the same age she is…. which… Read more »

OMG, so dumb if me. Can’t believe I’d forgotten about Will so soon. Johnny was supposed to come to Salem months ago and guess that was in my mind.

I have a theory that just like the OJ trial changed viewing habits toward soaps the pandemic with more people at home during the day may have done the same. Ellen announced she is retiring today and the Court shows all seem so tiresome now. Does any one know how the talk and court shows are doing?

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
