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 and 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 in the wash as to what went on!


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… 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 is an issue. That’s an NBC soap personality; not Hall’s.

Judith Chapman Confirms She Is Back On DAYS And As Leo’s Mom

Exciting news DAYS fans, those rumblings were true! Judith Chapman will be playing the trouble-making Leo Stark’s (Greg Rikaart) mother on Days of our Lives.  And that reunites Chapman with Rikaart as mother and son.

As soap fans know, they played Gloria and Kevin Fisher on The Young and the Restless for many years together.  Now they will be playing a new mother/son dynamic duo in Salem. But, just what kind of twisted relationship might they have, since Leo has given clues that she was a bad mom?

Soap Opera Digest revealed that Judith will play Diana.   Her first airdate will be on January 29th.  DAYS fans know Judith from her time as Angelica Deveraux from 1989-1991, and most recently when she returned to the show for the 2018 Halloween episode doing a guest-turn as Angelica AKA Satan in Hattie’s (Deidre Hall) nightmare.

Chapman confirmed her arrival on the Salem scene in a tweet today, stating “And I don’t have to keep the secret either Mitch Sandusky! What a GREAT way to start 2019… More articles to come in TV Guide Magazine and Soap Opera Digest… and to be reunited with my TV son.

Diana will have a past with John Black (Drake Hogestyn), which could cause trouble for John and Marlena’s wedded bliss.

So, excited to know Judith will once again tear up the soap-screen, but this time back on DAYS? Comment below.
