They deserve it with Wills coming out story. Chandler Massey is a great actor all of his scenes are sincere, and very heartbreaking, Most of all I love the scenes with Marlana, there so honest together, Brilliant writing. Congratulations to days of our lives.

Hopefully the reboot of the reboot of the reboot of Days of Our Lives will include more Freddie Smith and some stuff for Will, like frustrating realistic crushes on inappropriate men (Like one of his step dads haha or Chad) –and a date or two. I like that he is involved in storylines that have nothing to do with being gay, as if he was just a “normal” character (which he is) but I also don’t wan’t coming out to be the end for that part of him. Crushes, romance, sex that doesn’t live up to the hype if not with someone you have feelings for–be brave Days and go there. An eighteen year old gay guy would not be all about word play with gramma. He would definitely be using the Internet for other stuff too.

I agree. I think DOOL deserves this win! Chandler, Freddie and Deidre are all great actors/actresses.

It’s very sad only 2 soaps were nominated. Still happy for DAYS. This story has been kickass and they truly earned this award.

Chandler is an awesome actor…he rocks his scenes and I’m so glad he’s being recognized. Freddie is also doing a great job although he hasn’t been on for a while. Yayyyyyyy, for days & Chandler & Freddie….

Totally agree! Chandler is awesome, but we need more Freddie. After all, Sonny is the first gay character on the show. He deserves more airtime. It would be nice to learn a little more about his past. According to Freddie Smith, we will see more of him this summer! YEA!!!

DAYS is providing a keen insight and opportunity with this JUGGERNAUT story and HUGE Accolades to the Actors adeptly delivering tour de fource Show. first and foremost… DAYS, for all intents and purpose, has stepped up to the plate… front burner status.

I hope DAYS continues… throughout it’s tenure… on the air… Keep Chandler Massey… his talent.. and sensitive.. portrayal… is affective, and thought provoking. CHEERS! congratulations DOOL. continued wins at the 2012 DAYTIME EMMYS!

I’m re-posting… my take on Sammi and Will… these two… from the get go… survived, existed… “co-depended” on each other.. regardless of “fault”… Mother and Son… Will’s coming of age… transition to adulthood… with Sammi, is tumultuous. we’re watching Will find his voice…his way in life.

Let’s see more of Sonny, Justin and Adrienne.

i kinda see this as a catalyst… a full circle, if you will… in Sammi and Will… Lucas, readily admitted he wasn’t around for so many years… and is re-learning how to be a father.. you have Sammi and her oldest son… parenting with his siblings… and side by side, through the years.. distant, moreso… watching Sammi’s relationship(s) fallout, one after another… No stable influences… or father figure(s). it’s just time for Sammi, to pay attention and focus on her son. She has support from Lucas… the three of them will find their way back to each other. it’s a burgeoning… clean slate. Adulthood.. Empowerment for Sammi to heal old hurts… past mistakes… and Bond with her child.

I’m just saying… there’s so much more story to be told… ie: rumblings.. leaning to dropping the ball… going back burner with Wills, coming out.

along with the Lexie story… and i really liked the Austin/Carrie/Rafe/Abby story.

Give Stefano time off.. and bring him and Kristen “Eileen Davidson”, back to helm the Dimera Empire… and reignite John and Marlena.. with some passion.

Here’s to hoping Chandler Massey wins the 2012 younger actor Emmy! Kudos to DAYS.

Ms. Deidre Hall. Thank you. I’m appreciating you much more so. I read your’s and Chandlers interview in soap digest… perhaps, it’s with age… maturity. Our common sensibilities…. reaching for connection. What a duo… you and Will… are forever etched in DAYS. Aside, from Marlena’s “world”… John and Sammi, to mention a few… I wish Carrie was staying. It’s Chandler Massey… who’s cemented your characters belonging… LOL. your Veteran Legacy. That trust and commitment to act… an invariable… must… “we exist”. it’s a sharing, loving, nurturing combustion (if you will).. that lights up DAYS screen.

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?
