Days Of Our Lives

EW.com learns "DAYS may have Gay storyline in the works!"

Could it finally be that one of the last soaps you would ever think would incorporate a gay storyline into their story canvas, may be ready to do so?  Well according to EW.com tonight it just may be so for NBC’s longest running scripted television program, Days of our Lives.  EW reveals, “We have learned exclusively that a gay storyline may be in the works! From what we gather, it may involve a current cast member hooking up with someone new. ”

EW also states a Days of our Lives spokeswoman declined to comment on the situation. But let’s look at this for a second. Many fans have been lobbying for a same-sex relationship between the characters of Will (Chandler Massey) and Chad (Casey Deidrick), but also there is speculation that a gay storyline could involve the newest addition to the Hernandez family, Dario (Francisco San Martin).  Or, could it be none of the gents above?

If DAYS was to launch a gay love story, what existing character on the canvas would you like to see involved in this story? Tell us here.

Please Days, let it be Chad and Will! Fans have been wanting those two for so long, not to mention the fact that Casey and Chandler have proven to be adequate in the chemistry department. Not some new guy Days, CHAD AND WILL. I don’t want summer hotness, I want summer CHILL!

I would love for the first gay s/l to be with Chad and Will. Those two guys have so much chemistry together. They are on the same level as EJami to me and that’s saying a lot! Every time they’re in a scene together they light each other up and I don’t even see anyone else in the scene. Another DiMera/Brady “forbidden love” is gold and this time tptb could do the story that EJami were meant for right from the beginning. I hope tptb don’t waste this opportunity. It’s the second time a story like this with actors who… Read more »

The actor playing Dario is a non-starter, can’t see him having chemistry with anyone. Hope they don’t use Will & Chad. While these actors work very well together I can only see this storyline tanking and destroying the charcters future with the show.

I sincerely hope that there will NOT be a gay storyline on DOOL or any other American soap. I say this definitely not out of homophobia but beacuse it is a well known fact that gay characters are never ever given a happy ending on any American soap or show. QAF separated Brian and Justin in the end. ATWT killed of Reid, left Luke to a life of pain, suffering, and misery; and reduced Noah to a no show, while giving every straight charcater and couple a happy ending. OLTL made Kyle and Oliver disappear unceremonoiusly. In the end die… Read more »

I agree with most of what you said.The last straw for me was the way they ended ATWT and destroyed Luke and Reid.That was truly my favorite story of all time .I loved the characters of Luke and Reid and adored Van Hansis and Eric Sheffer Stevens.If they were cruelly destroyed,Reid being killed and Luke grieving for the love of his life, i don’t have much hope for any gay storylines.Because to me this was the best of the best.Some people want to be like an Ostrich and bury their head in the sand! So sad !!!!

The Olivia and Natalia story line ended happily on GL. Except for having to accomodate Jessica Leccia’s maternity leave, the storyline was very well put together and very moving. They wound up together with a supportive blended family and supportive community. However, I think the biggest problem with having gay/lesbian story lines on American soaps is that they’re not allowed to show much affection. They get just a couple of kisses and a ton of longing looks, hand holding and hugs. Meanwhile the straight couples are humping like rabbits in scenes that are one bed sheet away from soft core… Read more »

Days already has a same sex pairing with sexual chemistry in Chad and Will. Those two would be the best choice for a romance as the foundation has already been set. They are frenemies who sparkle in scenes together. The fact that a Chill pairing would instigate another Horton/Dimera drama would be icing on the cake. There is a lot of story that could be had from this pairing. Much more story than pairing them up with anyone else currently on the canvas. At this point Days is creatively dead. A Chill pairing would get them press and possibly reinvigorate… Read more »

I feel like a same-sex coupling on DAYS could be a real head-turner. I feel like what went wrong with ATWT’s Luke is that they wrote themselves into a big storm of publicity and then wrote themselves into a corner to which they couldn’t back out of. And OLTL had the perfect opportunity to succeed but didn’t roll with it as they probably felt they didn’t wish to ruin KISH. As for Y&R, they let me down. I felt like out of all the soap operas, they could’ve handled it well but just insulted it. Phillip is a gay male… Read more »

Rafe2 & Daniel! Daniel & Bo!!! BRADY BLACK and PHILLIP KIRIAKAS- please, please, please. (Alas, it would be short lived since Jay is leaving the show. But, after falling into a lustfilled night in Brady’s arms, and a subsequnt short lived romance, Phillip could leave town in a panic, leaving BRADY BLACK to find romance with EJ!!) Rafe 1 and EJ! Of course, Will (but I wish he could be played by the previous actor who played the role) and Chad. All kidding aside, this could be a wonderful story oppotunity- OF COURSE, Stefano, and probably EJ would be homophobic,… Read more »

Unfotunately Michael, times haven’t changed and homphobia is very much prevalent in society and even more so on American soaps and shows. Did you see how QAF, ATWT, and OLTL treated the gay characters. I have never seen a happy ending for a gay character. And, this trend will most likely continue.

NOOOOO gay storyline needed. REALLY. Enhance tradition and develop a strong consistent family, marital and single heterosexual relationships. Remember the Soaps are fantasy with a touch of reality.

I am a believer in tradition and traditional families, but having said that this is not the world we live in today.Love comes in all kinds of packages .I think it would be a mistake for people to pretend that gay love does not exist.Any relationship that has respect and love for one another has to be acknowleged! The families of today are not the traditional families of years ago.And what is a family anymore?There are so many divorces, babies without Fathers supporting them,neglect, abuse, etc.A loving , committed, monagamous,relationship makes a REALfamily.That’s just the way it is.And no ,… Read more »

So why do you watch in the first place? The intellectually stimulating storylines? What is really needed is more soap operas for gays and lesbians on network TV not through web subscriptions. That way you can tune in to something that turns you on and not be turned off by the straight people leaping into bed. Now if we are talking prime time shows that have nothing to do with leaping in bed, well bring on all the gay characters you want. I’m perfectly fine with homosexuality. I have relatives and friends who are gay, I just don’t want to… Read more »

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.

Check out the full winners circle list from last night’s 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.
