DAYS Peter Reckell letter to fans about month absence!

Days of our Lives, Peter Reckell ( B0) decided it best to address his fans with a message from him on one of the SONY DAYS Message boards. Peter has been asked by the NBC soap to take some time off due to the fact that he was going over limit of episodes on his contract, and the show right now is watching their bottom line.  Here is what Peter had to say about clearing up all the rumors. “Kelly and I have heard from concerned fans that there seems to be an NBC newsletter circulating stating or implicating that I have asked for time off from the show. Please be aware that this is not true. I am off for a month or so, because I was in danger of going over the limit of episodes listed in my contract. They did not wish to pay me for doing extra shows, so Bo was sent out of town for a month in order for him to remain, I am told, present and center when I return.

However, the show is in negotiations right now with the network, so the deal is pretty simple: if you want Bo around and don’t like having him be away, write to the people in charge and let it be known, for that is always useful. What is not useful, however, is trying to sabotage a storyline the writers have planned for us actors… There’s apparently another rumour circulating, stating I have said in a recent personal appearance in Canada, that I do not enjoy working with Crystal Chappel (Carly).

That is not – I repeat NOT – true. I have never said that and this was probably just made up by people who are not happy about the Bo and Carly story. Again, if you favor one pairing more than the other, please write to the show in masses and let your opinions about the storylines known. That is the way to do it. Starting fake rumours about me is not. I much enjoy working with both Kristian and Crystal and besides, actors have no say in what the writers have planned for their characters.

So whether you like the story or not, the important thing is to keep writing to the show, because interest in the story – wether it is positive or negative – is what will insure we stay on-screen in the end. Thanks for passing this along to others, I appreciate it. »

Love the Carly/Bo/Hope storyline. I love all the actors and am enjoying a lot of the emotional scenes. I’m just going with the story and will support all three involved any way the story goes.

I’m going to really miss Peter though. This storyline has him interacting with half of Salem. I really loved his scene with Melanie in the hospital. He was so tender, amused and concerned.

Peter going absent from the storyline is crazy, especially when they are in the middle of it and the ratings are going up and up!

Appreciate Peter for coming out and clearing this up thoughI don’t think anyone believed for a second that he would have done any of what was insinuated. I am enjoying his work opposite CC immensely. Never thought we would see Peter and Cystal share the screen again, let alone recreating the magic of Bo and Carly all these years later. Looking forward to seeing whether the show has the courage to examine the relationship between the two characters fully and give these two actors a chance to explore the wonderful chemistry they shared in early 90’s. Hope Peter isn’t gone… Read more »

I have really been enjoying bo and carly and the old scenes from the 90’s; so much that I have been looking up more of the old scenes on youtube. I had forgotten what a great couple they make & their chemistry, then and now, is incredible. I am all for a future with bo & carly together. Besides, the ratings have tremendously improved with Carly back in Bo’s life. I know Bo & Hope had a lot of years together, but, I think their relationship isn’t what it once was. It’s boring, painful, the chemistry isn’t what it once… Read more »

I love the Bo and Carly story and I think it is very hateful and spiteful that any fans of Bo and Hope would say that Peter Reckell does not working with Crystal Chappell. How hateful can one group of fans be that is so horrible. Peter is a good guy and will work with whomever he is given material to work with. These shows are fighting for their lives and for any one group of fans to do that is digsusting. It says alot about “Bo and Hope” fans very digusting.

The whole storyline involving Carly’s return to Salem and her daughter has raised DOOL to a much higher level. Carly’s story would have been nothing without Bo. Her relationship with Bo is so unique and special on so many levels. The chemistry is amazing and effortless.

I certainly hope that Peter returns quickly as there certainly would be a huge whole without Bo on Days.

I sincerely hope that Peter’s departure is temporary. I too am enjoying the Bo/Carley/Hope storyline. As a forever Bope fan, I do not hate Carley. In fact, I realize that bring excitement back to Bo and Hope there must be bumps in their road..(ok. so there have been a LOT of bumps). But Crystal is a remarkable actress and I am enjoying the storyline. I actually am probably in a minority but I also wish Justin and Hope would grow closer…just to give Bo something to think about. 🙂

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”

Victoria Konefal Confirms Her Exit From Days of our Lives

As the rumors circulated they were today proven true.  Victoria Konefal (Ciara) has left Days of our Lives as a full-time cast member with the long-running NBC soap opera.

In a statement to Deadline, Konefal shared: “I cherish every moment I have spent working on Days of Our Lives. It is an honor and a privilege to work in an environment filled with so much talent and passion in every direction. The experience and knowledge I’ve accumulated over the past three years is irreplaceable, and I’m forever grateful for it. I would love the opportunity to continue working with my castmates in the future, but at this time I will not be returning as a full-time cast member. To the cast and crew, it was an absolute pleasure working with you. To the loving and unwaveringly supportive fans, thank you. Thank you for joining me on my journey of finding Ciara Brady. It was a beautiful one. Cheers to some of the best days of my life.”

However with that statement, it does appear Konefal has left the door open for her to return as Ciara in a guest-star type of appearance or in a arc of a storyline- time will tell just how that pans out.

Konefal joined the show as the new Ciara Brady back in 2017, and became popular as part of the tortured duo known as “Cin’ along with Rob Scott Wilson (Ben) who’s on-screen nuptials aired this week on the show.

Since Days taped so far ahead of air before the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown and has episodes through Mid-October in the can, it would appear Konefal would make her on-screen exit during that time, since she will not be returning to the series, when it begins production again, which is projected to start on September 1st.

Konefal joins the list of departures since the beginning of this year which now include: Casey Moss, Chandler Massey, Freddie Smith, Galen Gering, Greg Vaughan and Kristian Alfonso.

So, sad to see Victotia exit as Ciara? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
