As the soap kicks off its 50th year next year, current cast members will be on hand to participate in a special presentation to commemorate its enduring run on NBC.

Scheduled to take part in all the Tinseltown festivities are: Deidre Hall (Marlena), Kristian Alfonso (Hope), Suzanne Rogers (Maggie), Galen Gering (Rafe), Lauren Koslow (Kate), Peggy McCay (Caroline), Joseph Mascolo (Stefano), Greg Vaughan (Eric), Bill Hayes (Doug), Susan Seaforth-Hayes (Julie), John Aniston (Victor), Shawn Christian (Daniel), Arianne Zucker (Nicole), Eric Martsolf (Brady), Kate Mansi (Abigail), Guy Wilson (Will), True O’Brien (Paige), Drake Hogestyn (John), Jen Lilley (Theresa), Mary Beth Evans (Kayla), Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), Casey Moss (JJ), Billy Flynn (Chad), Molly Burnett (Melanie), Meredith Scott Lynn (Anne), Aloma Wright (Maxine) and Christopher Sean (Paul).

Plans call for the DAYS to make their way down the parade route in an eye-catching presentation, featuring the show’s new 50th anniversary logo! There, the Salemites will then be greeted by parade hosts, Laura McKenzie and Erik Estrada, and presented a special honor to acknowledge their success!

DAYS Co-EP Greg Meng stated on the honor: “What better way to start the countdown to Days of Our Lives’ 50th anniversary on NBC than to be part of the iconic Hollywood Christmas Parade? We look forward to celebrating this holiday season with viewers across the country!”

Jim Romanovich, President of Worldwide Media for Associated Television International, added, “Days of Our Lives is an incredible success story and has been such an influential show to audiences over the years. It is, and continues to be, the cornerstone of NBC daytime programming. As fans of the show, we are thrilled to give them the tribute they deserve in this prestigious event.”

Awesome. Wish I could be there. I’ll try to catch on TV, but the airings aren’t real convenient.

That’s nice. I wish that ALL MY CHILDREN could have made it to a 50th anniversary, though 42 years is nothing to sneeze at. I now watch DAYS OF OUR LIVES because I miss AMC and I need a soap fix. I’m a fairly new viewer, less than a year but DAYS is a good show.
I do get tired of every character getting shot in that Fake leaf Park and I think they could use some new sets (does everyone have coffee in Brady’s Pub all the time?) but aside from that it’s a good show.

I found a friend in you, Troy. I enjoyed many soaps through the years but never DAYS… until I lost ATWT, AMC and OLTL. DAYS filled the void and though late to Salem, I am glad I can be there nearly every day to watch the goings on… although I still cannot keep everyone’s lineage straight! 🙂

I understand! I was thinking yesterday, when Kayla told Theresa in the Hospital that she and Brady “would have to wait an hour” for the pregnancy test result, she suggested that they “go to the Pub for Coffee”. Really? Doesn’t the Hospital like maybe have a Cafeteria where they could have had coffee? Everyone winds up in that Pub sooner or later, be it breakfast lunch or dinner. Honestly, the actors are quite competent but brother they need some diversification regarding Sets. Over at ABC-TV on All My Children, it seemed to me they had outdoor sets, location shots, and many other sets. Of course, I suppose production budgets were larger in the glory days of soaps. At any rate Thank you Iakovos I feel I have a kindred spirit here LoL – enjoy your time in Salem.

I agree with Greg Meng, “What better way to start the countdown to Days of Our Lives’ 50th anniversary on NBC than to be part of the iconic Hollywood Christmas Parade?…” Congratulations, Days. I always look forward to the Hollywood Christmas Parade and Days participation in it. This year’s parade will be extra special. Wish all in Salem a wonderful 50th year and MUCH FUN at the parade!

By the way, thank-you Michael for providing this information about Days’ special honor at the Hollywood Christmas Parade. I made an inquiry (earlier today I think) about Days’ participation in this year’s festivities. So this article was right on time for me.

I really do appreciate how you keep fans informed about what is going on with our favorite soaps. Thanks for your diligent hard work!

Now i’m going to have to convince someone to go with me because these people CAMP OUT just in hopes of being seen when all I want to do is see…but you know what…I have friends who rush to Emmy and Oscar red carpets where it’s just not worth the headache..but ok…I thinks me might do this one for once. The best thing about living in Los Angeles isn’t looking for your favorites…it’s just running into them ALL OVER the place…but this is something I do want to see…

Who is Christopher Sean (Paul)???

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

Christopher Sean plays the baseball player named Paul. Paul is Dr. Dan’s patient who is flirting with all the girls. He looks to be part Asian. He first was seen on Friday’s episode.

He’ll most likely turn out to be gay because the flirting is overkill to throw the viewers off.

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 Of Our Lives

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?

Check out more teasers for this week’s DAYS below, and then watch the latest promo for this week’s episodes via NBC here.
