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 too long. Days of Our Lives needs Bo Brady. End of discussion.

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 was. It’s not like Carly’s character came out of nowhere. They were a hot couple in love all those years ago when Hope was believed to be dead. And now Carly is back on the scene, the chemistry is still as hot as ever, & CC is a fantastic actress & her scenes with PR are what I look forward to. Please keep CC & PR together!

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. 🙂

DAYS’ Christie Clark Shares Coronavirus Health Update

Days of our Lives fans love her as as Carrie Brady, and are often very happy when they find out Christie Clark is back for a visit taping episodes of the NBC soap opera.  But that’s not what’s happening right now.  Right now, we need Christie to get all her strength back.

Clark shared via her Instagram today a health update on her battle with the coronavirus that hit both her and her husband while they have been living in the United Kingdom.

Christie expressed: “Oh my goodness, just starting to feel ok on this end. My husband Tom and I have had coronavirus fairly bad. Not as bad as some, no hospital needed. Hope your all well! I’m sure at this stage you all know of someone with it? When you get it, you can’t call the grandparents for help, cause they will get sick. We know about 10 people in our little circle that have had it. Like clockwork, Day 7,8,&9 were tricky and haven’t been able to taste food for a while. So excited to be in the land of the living again & start exercising…soon. Thanks for all the love. Stay safe!”
