age 20-35 … DAYS : Mary Beth Evans, the lovely Kayla would like some company

CeeCee

Enough of these Aussies, already. Hire an American. We have plenty of ruggedly handsome men right here, in this vast, beautiful country of ours. Think Texas, Montana, the Dakotas….etc.
If Australians can speak with a ‘patched up’ American accent, so can an American affect an Australian one. I don’t get it…look in your own backyard, casting directors!

Let’s go to Days, now…..Am I to believe that Paul is John’s son? I really like that concept…Finally, something meaty for John. He’s not my favorite soap actor, but, now, at least, I will not be as bored or annoyed by him.
How about that Eve. What a bimbo!!!! She’s jealous of JJ and any other girl? Key word here is…wait for it….wait for it….GIRL !!!!!!!! Eve, the dinosaur….the Granny is really off her rocker. I cannot believe this floozy. WOW !!

Timmm

Soaps are big in Australia. I wonder how many Americans are cast on their soaps?

CeeCee

If that is the case, Timmm, where there is an even balance?…..Then, I will eat my words and take everything I wrote back.

Of course Daniel is involved with this…may as well call it ‘Daniel Of Our Lives!’

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Too many newbies…all i like is Paul and his mother…Eve, Paige, Serena, Daniel, Melanie, and Erik can all leave town. Why does this show need Roxanne(she is sort of ok) when it already has Bev…and why cant Paige be seeing Rory, the cool one, instead of TheNewKidOnTheBlock?

Mary SF

I don’t know how this is going to be possible, but the way Paul’s mother reacted to both Marlena and John– I bet my last donut, that John is going to be Paul’s father.

Patrick
Patrick

Perfect : ‘Daniel Of Our Lives!’

darned if you do and darned if you don’t : right?

How is it possible that one “anointed” person is ALL Salem Needs?

like CeeCee said above…. I’m glad as well.. that John Black gets story… and YES! it’s Paul Norita…
I was instantly taken with his mother

I also agree… that watching Eve jealous… surprised me… I’m still not undone by the story… if the writing improves… these two able actors are ready

Mo

What about Bren Foster? 🙂

I guess since B&B and Y&R both have Australians, Days wants to compete. 😉

I’m not necessarily excited. Just want the show to improve.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Compete for what, Mo? Who has more Australians? Seriously? We are swarmed by them……meanwhile, there are starving American actors who are struggling right here in the US of A.

Harry

What is Ingo Rademacher (formerly GH’s Jax) up to these days?

Patrick
Patrick

I”m thinking they need some male hunk to keep Anne, Theresa, Melanie, and Serena company… add in Kayla

Rebecca1

Australians seem to breed hunks, Patrick. Love the accent…nothing like the real thing…

CeeCee
CeeCee

Theresa is still so ” hung over” Brady, Patrick. So, yeah, a hunky doctor for her would sober her up in more ways than one.
Anne is just too funny to have a guy come around and kill that in-your-face aura surrounding her. If she falls for some man, she will lose all that spunk I love so much and put all her energy toward impressing her love interest.
Serena should take a train, plane or hike back to Llanview.
Melanie has Brady, for the time being…hope he goes back to Theresa and both be united with the baby Kristen stole.

On a different note…did you not love Jenny today? WOW. The tame little kitten has sprung into a tigress. Double WOW. Never knew she had it in her. …..Jenny showed what the power of a mother protecting her “cub” can do. I derived an excessive amount of satisfaction as I watched tiny, little Jennifer Horton on the prowl, finding and ferociously scratching the shrew’s eyes out. You go Jenny !!!!

Tad

I wish they would search for a new Will. I wouldn’t mind if Will had an Aussie accent as long he could act.

Michael
Michael

Yes- I agree Tad- a new Will- one who can ACT woukd be a great improvement. Every single time Guy opens his mouth I cringe. And I really wish Sonny would stop acting like such a pussy. Man up and get angry, upset, etc.- but I’ve had enough of Sonny as ‘victim’.

Patrick
Patrick

ditto

it just boggles the mind that the DAYS production team keep Guy Wilson and Shawn Christian .

they do not ACT

CeeCee
CeeCee

Tell me about it, Patrick. I doubt TPTB will rid themselves of Shawn any time soon. He is one of the lead actors, if not the top male character. I also think that Daniel and Nicole really fit…perhaps because they are a couple in real life? I am waiting with bated breath to finally see “them” bring these two together, finally, without a hitch. I really feel they will be explosive because Nicole has that extra ingredient which helps her male counterpart shine. Let’s see what happens.

Will? He has never worked for me. After all this time, he is still as painfully dull as a toothache. If only drop-dead-gorgeous Chandler would come back! Sigh.
But, we do have Sonny and Paul….love them both.

Timmm

He was up for a role on the series back in the early 2000’s, but it fell through.

Since Days is big in the land down under I suspect this is a way to get them involved with the 50th Anniversary of the show– it is a stunt, nothing more, and unless they luck out and find an amazing talent, this guy will last as long as Lexie’s half brother, who I have already forgotten this name- I want to say Cameron is that right? Let’s hope they write him a better story than being a male stripper to pay off medical school loans.

It does seem obvious John is Pauls father…wish he had been Abe’s instead…for John they shouldve brought back his daughter Belle!!!

How do we get Zachary Garred in the running? Loved seeing that Aussie on my screen. Granted it would mean having to start watching Days but if it means ZG onscreen, I’ll do it and I bet I wouldn’t be the only one.

Jeremy

Oh yes, I do miss Zachary as Levi on GH. And, I do think it’s very doubtful that DAYS will consider ZG. I think they are really pushing for an Aussie actor who hasn’t appeared on any other American soap.

I would love to see Bren Foster return to daytime!

Patrick
Patrick

@Mo said the same thing above ! YES… even tho he’s been on DAYS before… they wasted him and never utilized his character
(May 2011 – February 22, 2012) he played Vivian Alamains son… Quinn

RETURN HIM as a new Character, or as Quinn….

my other pick would be Ben Lawson….

Nick D.
Nick D.

Bren was GREAT as Quinn – the most convincingly devlish bad-guy on Days in years. They made a mistake letting him go, imho. Hope they pick someone like that for this new role. The Aussies have charisma to spare (Bren, Ingo, Nathan parsons, etc.)

Side note – Australian … I wonder if he is connected to Tony/Andre? A long lost son?

Tom84
Tom84

It’s a bit ambitious, but it would certainly help Days ratings if they could land a Hemsworth – they’ve all done soaps before!

Even someone like Jonathon Wood, Wade Briggs, Matthew Le Nevez or Conrad Coleby sound like they’d fit the brief! Not sure whether the first two meet the ‘rugged’ criteria but they’ve all proved they’ve got the chops to handle it!

CeeCee
CeeCee

OMG. If one of those Hemsworth brothers would even appear temporarily, I would immediately stop picking on the Aussies. Is there a word that supersedes gorgeous, beautiful, perfection, flawless…..?????

This should go to Nathin Butler, he was gone way too soon from GH

Good choice!

@mar SF. You are right. I had already surmised John being Paul’s father on the previous site. It will be interesting to see the ‘how, when and where’,…..the plot thickens ?????

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?
