Spirit Day is the annual day in October when millions of Americans wear purple to speak out against bullying and to show their support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth.  And yesterday on Spirit Day, the Internet, media and sports figures, turned into a purple haze of support for LGBT youth who are bullied.

The hosts of the Today Show went purple; Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan went purple and welcomed guest Michelle Obama on LIVE with Kelly and Michael; The hosts of The Talk on CBS were all wearing purple; Spirit Day Ambassador Wendy Williams and her audience also wore purple on The Wendy Williams Show.

And in daytime soaps, members of the cast of Days of our Lives, who at this point are telling the only LGBT storyline which has already involved gay-bashing, coming out, and a burgeoning same-sex love story between Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey), took some time on the set to proudly show off their purple support!  Pictured here are Bill Hayes, Kristian Alfonso, Freddie Smith, Kate Mansi, Blake Berris, Eric Martsolf and Nadia Bjorlin!

Did you go purple yesterday in support of our LGBT youth, and in a show of support against bullying?  Let us know!

no, I didn’t even know it was going on! And why is it just for the bullied LGBT? shouldn’t it be for all who are bullied? Just curious or did I read this wrong. Cause I was bullied as a kid, I’m not Gay, but I was heavy for a kid and of course kids can be cruel no matter what or who you are 🙁

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.
