The face-off and eventual smackdown has begun between former, Days of our Lives star, Deidre Hall, and her former fan club president Cathleen Paradis.  As previously reported, Radar Online broke the news that of Hall was suing Paradis for the rights to the URL’s deidrehall.com and marlena.com. In addition, Hall is allegedly looking to recover damages, claiming Paradis used her likeness to raise money for herself.

Late last week, Paradis wasn’t having it, and wanted to tell her side of the story and spoke with the New York Post to bring her allegations on Hall to light.

Just a few of note included: Paradis says she served as Hall’s “defacto personal assistant” for months. Allegedly, when Paradis asked Deidre Hall to pay her for her time, she said Hall refusd. Then, Paradis alleges she scanned over 6,000 photos into a computer database for Hall and created video presentations for managers and agents, and that she purchased the domain names prior to moving to LA—with Hall’s permission.  Also thrown into the mix of her claim is that she moved from Connecticut to L.A. to be closer in proxmity to Hall.

So now you have heard both sides to this story as we know it so far.   What are your thoughs on Hall and Paradis’s claims?

Whatever about the claims, the idea that DH wanted her child looking thinner in a Christmas photo is what is most distressing. Having worked on a voluntary basis for an american actress for about a year, I can tell you that I’ve done some of the things CP had to do…i.e. retouching photos, sorting out various websites, uploading videos etc and it is a thankless job. I think the lessons from this is a) have a contract in place, and b) never meet your idol, the reality rarely matches up to the fantasy! I guess it will all come out… Read more »

I’ve worked for a soap actress and she was unbearable. Her expectation of preferential treatment just because she was on TV was insufferable, and that wasn’t just from me, it extended to everyone from baristas at Starbucks to lawyers to state code inspectors. The wealthiest person I worked for and also the cheapest. Once big in Daytime, she expected to be treated like royalty forever, yet in private spoke with great disdain about the fans who put her where she was. I have no doubt everything Cathleen says is true and much much more.

I first met Pradis in 2003 when she was working for Hall…..so her work was longer than just a few months.

Hall must be very, very afraid of what Pradis could expose about her.

It’s very sad. Yes, good contracts keep decent relationships. In fairness to Hall she hasn’t worked in a while. Deidre had / has an awesome fan base. So whatever the truth is, Deidre benefitted much from an organized and vocal fan base. Much more vocal and organized than say Susan Lucci’s who does not seem to seek the limelight as much (though it sort of follows her for whatever reason – look at Dancing with the Stars – everyone wanted Erica Kane not boring Lucci). I have no idea why Marlena.com is an issue. That’s an NBC soap personality; not… Read more »

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.

You can never get enough Jackée, right? Right! The popular actress who recently made her daytime drama return in a new role on Days of our Lives as Paulina, will also be seen next month in the third and final season of the hit and groundbreaking FX series, Pose.

In a tweet on social media, Jackée expressed: “And I’m SO relieved to finally tell you to catch me on the final season of #PoseFX  Consider me honored and over the moon!!!!””

For those who don’t know, Pose is a drama spotlighting the legends, icons and ferocious house mothers of New York’s underground ball culture, a movement that first gained notice in the late 1980s. Making television history, Pose features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles, including Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore and Hailie Sahar, who co-star alongside Billy Porter, Angel Bismark Curiel, Dyllón Burnside, Sandra Bernhard and Jason Rodriguez. The Golden Globe-nominated drama also features the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors ever for a scripted series.

In the final season of Pose, it’s now 1994 and ballroom feels like a distant memory for the character of Blanca who struggles to balance being a mother with being a present partner to her new love, and her latest role as a nurse’s aide. Meanwhile, as AIDS becomes the leading cause of death for Americans ages 25 to 44, Pray Tell contends with unexpected health burdens. Elsewhere, the emergence of a vicious new upstart house forces the House of Evangelista members to contend with their legacy.

Pose was co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals, who executive produce alongside Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sherry Marsh and Janet Mock. Our Lady J is co-executive producer.

Excited to see Jackée featured in the upcoming season of Pose? Enjoying her as DAYS Paulina? Comment below.
