Regardng the February Sweeps Preview::

A mixed bag. Glad to see the show’s elders getting romantic stories. Love the cunning of Skate and the charm of Magic. Not wild about Bope. Prefer Carbo myself. Am refusing the contrived pairing of EJ and Taylor. What a complete joke! Don’t see it happening with Ejole either, EJ’s a one woman man. Thanks to TPTB for decimating Bricole, Mate, and Phloe. You make leaving you so easy.

I will never buy EJ with Taylor. If EJ falls for Taylor then he is not the EJ we have grown to know and love. Taylor is such a turn off for me. EJ belongs with Sami they are two peas in a pod. EJ will have to do a 360 to be compatible with Taylor and I don’t really want EJ to change that much. Sami is dull with Rafe is EJ will be dull with Taylor. WHy can’t these writers get it straight and put the right people together. EJami would make a great gray couple fighting Stefano.

They all look gorgeous and from the promos seem like they know how to lighten up and have fun together. I love the creative idea of looking through a window. These must have been awesome up on the NYC JumboTron. Beautifully done, Days should be proud.

Oh and you can never have too much of Galen Gering! Come on, the guy is hot-cha-cha-cha!!!

My vote goes to Sami and Rafe!! Lovin their smokin hawt chemistry. It sizzles up the screen.
Besides being a hot couple, they are a natural-looking couple who seem to enjoy working together.

SAFE is a natural looking couple because they radiate friendship more than hot sizzling romance. Hot sizzling romance belongs to EJAMI. The video had too much Rafe and he was with a variety of women, yet EJ was restricted to very few scenes. James is the lead actor on DAYS and the emmy nominated one, he should be given priority not Galen. In any event have been given good vibes for EJAMI’s future by reliable source so the video means nothing.

Hate fake Rafe but I love that Nicole will find out how arrogant and obsessed EJ really is that he would be so jealous of Sami’s /Johnny’s/Sidney’s affections that he would endanger the people around him with fake Rafe. EJ is no hero, and Taylor no heroine… so let’s end the facade.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
