Days Of Our Lives

EXCLUSIVE: Crystal Chappell speaks out on Twitter controversy!

Several days ago an all out war of words between rival fan bases erupted on Twitter, after some tweets by TV Guide Canada journalist, Nelson Branco, regarding Days of our Lives star, Kristian Alfonso (Hope).  As fans became upset surrounding the comments in the tweets, Crystal Chappell (Carly) entered the fray to try to calm down the explosion that was happening on Twitter.  But she was taken to task for what appeared to some that she chose not to defend her castmate, but defended Branco’s honor and right to speak his mind.

Chappell, asked to speak exclusively with On-Air On-Soaps to publicly clear the air on what went down and to address the public attacks on her for just trying to diffuse the situation, and how we all must use social media more wisely and stop attacking one another. And with or without intent, this entire Twitter episode erupted, sad to say, as a form of Cyberbulling… something no group or individual should have to experience.  So, here below is what Crystal wanted to relay to soapers everywhere! It is our hope that this will give everyone some perspective on the subject.

I know you wanted to make a statement about what happened on Twitter.  Where do you want to start?

CRYSTAL: First, I don’t agree with what was said, and when you are walking into something blindly, you just want the madness to stop.  It would not matter who it was.  I would probably find a way to diffuse the situation.  I think that is probably what a lot of people were trying to do, but people were angry, and then all of a sudden fists were flying everywhere at everyone.  It was a melee and over-the-top.  You know I don’t condone hatred of any kind, and I think people have the right to speak their mind.  But, I really do think we have to choose our words more carefully.  If you want to have a discussion, ask questions.  If you just want to hate on somebody, what I have done is I go for the “block”, and then that becomes a weird football game, too.  But there should be no reason for it.  If you want something from me, tell me.  If you want to tell me that you hate me, tell me. Tell me that you hate me and move on.  Fans and fellow actors being attacked for no reason based on what somebody else said, was not right.  My whole aim with this was to say, “Stop fighting.  I don’t know what is going on either.  But this is not O.K.!”  The intensity of the hatred was astounding.  It was not, “I am angry with you or I don’t like you,” it was one of those things where I thought, “Am I going to have to call the F.B.I.?” I think these people want to kill me.  They were not threatening bodily harm, but it was a violent attack of words.  And, I don’t understand that coming from anybody.  I don’t understand that with members of the press.  I don’t condone that!

Let’s clear the air also, about your feelings on Kristian Alfonso and how this negative turn with this whole Twitter debacle affected you, your castmates and other fans.

CRYSTAL: I never said an unkind word about Kristian Alfonso and I do not have bad feelings about her.  I brushed by her today at work and we said, “Hello. How are you?” There is no problem between her and me.  And this is what is so sadly wrong about all of this.  I just wanted to make a point of let’s not hurt each other.  But, the intensity of this hatred said something to me.  So I thought, “I will take it” because I am used to it after over 20 years in this business.  But to do this to others fans, and to have four people tweeting me going, “Why are they being so mean to me?  They don’t even know me.”  And these are DAYS fans!  These are people that are supporting the show!  I thought, “Dear God. This is so sad and unnecessary.”  You really don’t know what anyone knows, or don’t know.  There is just this rage.  I don’t blame people for being upset about what was said about Kristian.  I was upset when I read it the next day and I did something about it.  My people made a phone call to Nelson.  I have to ask people; what would you do if you were walking down the street and you saw two people fighting?   Would you just walk by?   Would you stand there and cheer them on?   Would you say, “Before I try to help you, I am gonna ask which one of you threw the first stone?”  Or, would you just try to break the fight up?   Now, I go for break the fight up and then figure out what is going on.  But to sit there and judge anything and anyone for what I think was a sane decision, and to spin that to be something else is a little maddening, and unacceptable.  I spoke with Molly Burnett (Melanie, DAYS) today and thanked her for being a decent person.  She was just trying to diffuse the situation.  She should not be hated because of that.  But this is about polarizing and winning something.  What are you going to win?   I am not even on DAYS anymore.  Where is the win here?  You get to be the bigger hater?  I just don’t get it and I don’t want that for the fans.  Like I said, I understand their rage completely.  But I don’t understand the win.  You don’t have all the facts and you are attacking people who are absolutely innocent based on what one person said.   I don’t get it.

Had you known the whole back-story about what was unfolding on twitter, and what had preceded you coming in to it, would you perhaps not chosen to post your original tweet, but something else?

CRYSTAL: What I would have done would have been to go in to Twitter and say something different, which would have been, “Stop the hate!   I don’t care which camp it is coming from… stop!“  We all have the right to speak our minds.  I think back to what happened last week with Tracy Morgan.  But, there are boundaries and lines, and things you need to be aware of that effect people.  That is true for everyone: press, an actor, or a fan.  The only reason I bring this whole issue up is for a couple of reasons.  One is to be respectful of each other as human beings, and we deserve to go to bed knowing not that we won a hate war, but we have calmly and civilly spoken to each other respectfully.  And, I am not pointing the finger at any one fan base.  I am saying that for everybody.  Also, that if we don’t pull together as fans of daytime television, you are going to see it go away.  This is the last thing, trust me.  I am on the inside of this, and the last thing daytime TV needs is fractured fan bases.  It is totally unacceptable what is going on.  There is too much going on out there in the world right now.  We don’t need to be going off on each other.  Just say what you have to say, but be willing to listen to somebody.  Have a dialog.  That is what I wanted to have, a dialog.

In a perfect world, how would you have preferred people to let you know their feelings about you in this scenario?

CRYSTAL: In a perfect world, tell me you are pissed off about what Nelson said.  Tell me you are pissed off at me, because I defended him.  Let me have an opportunity – and as I said- I don’t condone hatred.  But nobody said, “Crystal, do you agree that Nelson said that Kristian got you fired?”  And I would have said, “No, I don’t agree with that.”  There was no dialog.  There was lot of name-calling 101, and nothing I haven’t heard before.  I am a little disappointed in that.  If you are going to call me names, come up with something more interesting or new.  Give me something to entertain me! (Laughs)  It was schoolyard bullying and antics.  Just tell me what you want me to hear, because I am receptive.  But I have to be honest, and I have to own this.  By the end of the night, I had the attitude of “screw this”.  I did.  I am not going to lie.  I apologize for that.  But at the end of the night that is where my head was at.  But I want to start over.  I believe that love is louder and that is where we are moving.  There is the impersonality of social media, and that is why I wanted to speak to you about this, and again I think this is important.   And I am not judging anybody.  I am just saying that we all, including me, really need to be careful.   Let’s just have a good time, which is the point of it.

What do you think, in the bigger picture, this all really says about social networking and communication in 2012?

CRYSTAL: I will tell you a story.  Last year, I had friend who was having a tough time communicating with her co-workers, as she mainly communicated with them through email.  She is a wonderful, funny, smart and kind person, and none of that translated.  So what ended up on the other end was a lot of bad feelings.  And it made me stop and think that this is such an impersonal way to communicate with people.  I do think that Twitter is a little bit better, but if you miss an LOL or “wink”, you’re screwed. (Laughs)  I am conscious of that, but I have certainly sent out tweets, where people go, “Oh, my God. She does not like me.”  And you can’t read a tone in a tweet, and it made me think it’s so important to pick up the phone and have that one-on-one time and to take the time to cultivate relationships.  People feel too comfortable behind the wheel, or in this case, behind the keyboard.  It is so easy just to hit “send” or to send something out, because you don’t have to be held accountable.  I also think there is no way to fully communicate what is going on via Twitter.  It really comes down to how you treat people.  And at the end of the day, whether you are standing in front of people or on Twitter, it’s about how you treat people, and unfortunately that is so out of hand.

I’m constantly stunned by the level of bile people will spew anonymously. I’ve seen it in comments on pages for my favorite sports teams, comments on TV shows, news articles about Joe or Jill Average, and soap fandoms.

And it’s so easy to generalize or perpetuate myths by retweeting or forwarding outrage (and creating a bigger firestorm) without checking to see if there’s any basis.

So, thank you, Crystal, for taking a stand. Really well said. Brava!

Brava, Michael, for a job well done. What’s sad is the amount of bashing done by message boards over this whole situation. The message board I was on for three years made me so sick over how they were bashing the actors involved in this that I quit posting there. Thank you, Crystal, for taking a stand. And to all those of you still bashing the actors because of their behavior and their innocent tweets and saying that isn’t bullying? Look in the mirror and repeat after me. YES. IT. IS.

Love is louder. Shout it from the rooftop.

It hurts when your favorites eff up, doesn’t it? But what happened to Crystal, Molly, and even Kristian is nothing like real bullying. Shame on Crystal for exploiting a real problem and playing the victim to cover her own mistakes.

That is one of the main reasons why I rarely use Twitter anymore. There is a limitation as to how much you can Twitter. It forces you to omit words and expressions (smiley faces/winks) which change the whole tone of the post. I’ve reverted back to my Facebook page which allows me to fully express my thoughts and enables me to add 😉 🙂 🙁 :-O which can accurately describe the tone of your message and change it from offensive to acceptable verbalization of feelings and thoughts.

I find it hard to believe that Crystal did not know what Nelson was tweeting about when she was on Twitter for hours and replied to his tweets. Crystal had a chance to stand up against a cyber bully who has been bullying for years, and she chose instead to support him and not the victim. I’m not surprised that her propping of Nelson going on for years now bit her on the butt. He’s a jerk, but she doesn’t care along as he gives her press. And it’s obvious that she’s his source for a lot of his stories… Read more »

Nota she is not the source for the storys Nelson was saying about day’s.Journalist have other way’s to get to their story, and she didn’t support the bully. So how long are we gonna keep this going on, she was clear in this interview why don’t you heck the people that was attacking he was also wrong but no and here you go blaming her. I will say shake it off and move on leave the past behind it’s a new day and we all learn everyday. don’t assume somethin you don’t know about.

Perla- she did retweet several of his tweets. Why, if she was facing so much “vile venom” regarding this, would she retweet them? If I had not personally been on Twitter during Nelson’s attacks, maybe I could believe she knew nothing about this. HOWEVER, Nelson has been a HUGE supporter of Crystal for years and this is not his first time attacking other actors, fans and fan bases. She had to have known that this is his personal style of “journalism!” And I did Tweet her personally asking why she was supporting Nelson, when he was obviously a bully and… Read more »

ITA with you! Nelson Branco isn’t a journalist, he is a one man publicity wagon for Crystal Chappell. She could be laying on screen for months in a coma and he would still call her the “Merle Streep” of daytime! I feel that this was orchestrated to help her gain sympathy in the press for her being “attacked” by Bope fans. Don’t support a jerk then! I am so sick of everyone saying she was going to “save” Days. Haha! After following her on twitter, I lost ALL respect for her.

If she would have been given a decent storyline who knows what would have happen! Nothing has saved Days in the ratings so far, & I doubt anything will! I don’t believe for one second she orchestrated anything, this was all one mans doing! CC will survive this, it will blow over, she gains followers on Twitter she hasn’t lost many! This too shall pass!

None of you, including me knows Crystal personally. But, I will say this, she has my respect and admiration. Its so easy to sit there and judge and make assumptions. Her work on Days, Venice the Series, and even the way she has spoken out publicly about love and respect for people, as human beings, speaks volumes to the kind of person she is. She has used her celebrity to give the gay community an even bigger voice. Now thats love! People are hating on Crystal for what someone else said to defend her…Does not make sense! Wow! How can… Read more »

I’m not a Bope fan or a Crystal fan, but I watched the drama unfold last week in real-time and I’m pretty baffled by Crystal’s comments. She never defended Kristian after Nelson’s nasty comments, which did not just say Kristian got Crystal fired, but included some nasty personal slurs. I did not see the attacks on Crystal on Twitter, but while Nelson was ranting about Kristian, Crystal told people to send him “love.” She also retweeted one comment about how Bope only has five fans and another that called Bope fans a “vile fanbase.” (Crystal also later claimed she did… Read more »

This is what bothers me. People say they didn’t see the attacks on Crystal; they didn’t read the comment that was tweeted prior to NB about having his head stuck up CC a** but make assumptions about CC behavior. CC NEVER said a bad thing about KA. CC has two boys not three. She has one hubby not two and she is not responsible for NB. CC has been attacked by Bope fans repeatedly concerning bo and hope and hope. She took and put up with their crap for two years now. This mess is over and its time for… Read more »

And CC did not retweet any of Nelson’s tweets that night, I know I was there! KA isn’t upset at CC, she believes her just like we do, CC did not see NB’s tweets, therefore she did not retweet any of them! If KA isn’t upset, then this whole thing should stop, KA has made comments regarding all of this, how much she enjoyed working with CC. Time to move on & let it go!

This is why I support Crystal in her projects. She is kind to her fans, and a very talented actor. I hope the bullying on both sides comes to an end now. This should be about keeping soaps on the air. Not about who said what about who.

Thanks Michael for letting Crystal speak. I’m curious what Kristian feels but we haven’t heard from her. It does astound me how much energy people put on hate and the time and effort. Really, would be great to spend it on things for good – go buy some more jewelry if you’ve got time on your hands. And yet, there still is this little thing called free speech in this world that allows all of us to have our opinions. Might just behoove some to use their speech a little more wisely and friendlier. #Love

We are all so quick to judge people we don’t even know, and we think we have “inside information” into their daily life. Crystal probably didn’t know what was going on at first that’s not her fault she’s human she’s not some evil person that hates KA and spews bad things from behind the scenes she’s been on soaps for 20 years she knows not to do that plus if she did people would know by now since she’s been on quite a few soaps. So many people want to jump to quick conclusions because they are upset or angry… Read more »

I agree with Crystal about what happened. She tried her best to break up the fight but she doesn’t control what comes out of people’s mouths and in this case tweet mouths and fingers :). All she could do is try as she did but she ended up being blamed anyways even though she tried to call a cease fire on the situation. I was appalled when I read the other article where the media person who is some psychologist actually put the blame on Crystal solely for what fans both hers and Kristian were writing, that was definitely ridiculous.… Read more »

ITA with you Lina! First of all, freedom of the press would actually imply that Nelson was a real journalist! I have seen NOTHING that shows him as a mature, impartial member of the press. Crystal has supported Nelson for YEARS, due to his ALWAYS favorable “love” he sends her. She didn’t care when Nelson attacked Kristian, she said to keep sending Nelson LOVE as a matter of fact. Had she TRULY wanted to defuse the situation, her tweet should have said, “I do not support Nelson in his KA hate, I have nothing but respect for her. Please stop… Read more »

I didn’t follow the twitter thing, but from what I understand, it looks like Nelson B. was bordering on libel with his comments about Kristian Alfonso. I can’t understand why Crystal Chappell defended him. This interview is total gobbledygook. I don’t understand how standing up for “freedom of speech,” condoning NB’s statements about KA, was in any way diffusing things or standing up to bullying. Oh well, I hope CC is happy and does well with whatever she moves onto next. She is a fine actress, but in this situation, I think she’d be better off just apologizing and not… Read more »

The ONLY bullying that went on was that of Nelson Branco against Kristian Alfonso. The things he said were cruel and disgusting. And to top it all of, a few Days castmastes (not just CC), brushed of Branco’s words and continued to share laughs with him and support him that night and the day after. KA was the victim in all of this, no one else IMO

MF and Crystal Chappell this is an awesome interview. ITA with everything she says. I have watched Nelson Bronco spew vile accusations at one of my favorite actresses Christel Kahlil for years. He has influenced his readers with his hatred for certain actors and actresses. You can see some of the result on the message boards. I actually see posters quote what he says to validate their own point against a actor or actress they dislike/hate spreading his hatred even further. When all soaps are gone from the airwaves, there will be many things that we can blame. But there… Read more »

Glad she had a chance to clarify its a shame that some people will always believe what they want of her because it justifies their actions.

For many of us, this isn’t about hate. This is about disagreeing with her handling of the situation that night. Some of us feel she acted like a hypocrite, telling us to fight the hate while not fighting it herself by telling Nelson to stop attacking Kristian. She had the opportunity. She chose not to use it. And yes, she knew what was going on. She just pretended she didn’t the next day when she saw a lot of negative reaction around the net. She calls one group of fans on “bullying” but exempts her own fans, as though they… Read more »

Bope/KA’s fans initial issue was with Nelson insulting Kristian.

Her comments were displeasing.. If Crystal wasn’t aware of what Nelson said, a light bulb should have gone off in her head to stop and think. Question why she was receiving all the tweets by Bope/KA’s fans with very similar questions about Nelson. Question what has Nelson said because he can be controversial and opinionated.

KatherineKellyLangRocks,

Just to clarify, when I was noting the nastiness on twitter and referencing Exhbiit A, I was talking about vraggs, not CC. Then again, vraggs is utilizing her freedom of speech, isn’t she?

By the way, I wish to congratulate all of the Emmy winners from last night, including CC. Job well done. Web soaps are the future of the genre and I look forward to seeing where Venice and other web soaps go.

I’m curious as to why Crystal keep flogging this horse long after it has died. She’s the one keeping this in the public spotlight, despite her repeated calls of “let’s move on”. I find it rather hypocritical for her to be calling Bo and Hope fans out for bullying, when she was retweeting how vile the Bope fanbase was, was tweeting hate herself and seems to gloss over all the venom, hate and cyberbullying her own fanbase partakes in.

In all honesty and without taking sides, I read the very first tweet sent to NB bashing him for his support of CC. Afterwards, all hell broke loose. I saw vicious attacks from both fan bases, neither one is innocent. However, I believe CC is not a hateful woman, on the contrary. Unfortunately, her actions and comments were misunderstood. It happens. NB was wrong period.

Let’s give it a rest and hopefully all of us can learn from this.

I agree with you Jaime, you summed it up perfect, time to let it go & move on! Crystal was misunderstood, she is human, & no one can know or see everything that was tweeted to her. I know myself I get lost in the tweets & have to go from tweet to tweet to see what is going on. And still you don’t know for sure what is exactly going on for certain, everyone is saying so much, you guess most of the time!

It was not his support of CC, although his CONSTANT pimping of her smacks of prejudice. It was where he was stated KA had gotten CC, RKK and others fired. He also said she was a Bitch, anorexic and stupid. How is that journalism? Its not, it smells of sour grapes because KA still has her job and CC does not. And personally, I believe if KA had the sway NB flat out said she did, WHY would CC have been asked to come back? The fact that CC actually Retweeted that Bope only has 5 fans, signifies to me… Read more »

Everyone just stop. I don’t care which side your on. Stop. This is past. No need to keep bringing it up anymore. There’s no sense in throwing blame at each other. Focus on what we love about the genre, not tearing each other down. It’s done and over. Move on.

Thanks so much Michael F. and Crystal C. for continuing to keep this war of words going! I agree with Vraggs! If you were there when this was happening, you know that Crystal should NEVER have put herself in the middle of Nelson’s mess! A REAL FRIEND tells that friend when he/she is wrong and they need to shut up! CC didn’t do that! She got involved and made it worse! And now here she is giving an interview that is continuing to drag this horrible fan war on! Is this her publicity model she is using to promote Venice… Read more »

Nelson Branco started this. It wasn’t about a war between fanbases, it was about a man hiding under “protecting my source” and then spewing hate at an actress he does not know. Like so many others, I too find it hard to believe that CC did not know what Nelson had said. She responded to several tweets that actually told her he was bashing her costar. So that doesn’t wash with me. I appreciate that she is now coming out and saying she does not support Nelson’s comments or hate. But I’m disappointed that she has pointed blame at the… Read more »

WOW! I now understand why twitter was going crazy that night. I had no idea what was really going on. CC is an awesome person with a great huge heart, and very passionate. I agree that it’s so very easy to hit “send” and you can’t delete what you say but can only be sorrier (if you didn’t mean to say it). I’ve been there and done that. There is always two sides of any story and always get your facts before you start accusing and/or agreeing. It’s good to vent but I don’t think it’s always good to do… Read more »

Some of you act like these actressses are your best friends or something. They are both probably embarrassed by your actions. I wouldn’t want to be associated with these type of fans.

I saw the beginnings of this whole thing. I saw Nelson’s original tweets regarding KA (her weight, how she got CC fired etc) and then responses from angry readers. I didn’t see the CC side of things or the big hub bub that I guess unfolded. But having seen Nelson’s first tweets, I was truly disgusted. I was proud of those who were fighting him back. Even though his would follow up with tweets sarcastic in nature, or the ever popular “then don’t follow me”, people still took a stand against him…at long last. The ass kissing that goes on… Read more »

Taking a stand might’ve been more effective if she’d done it last week when the real bullying took place but was sanctioned because of “freedom of the press.” You have only to look around to see the tweets and the responses as they happened. Those of you who choose to believe the “spin” will do so. There are those of us who do not. Crystal supported Nelson’s comments that night, declaring to know things we don’t, and telling us to send him “love” AS he was ripping Kristian to shreds. The remarks she made today didn’t help. She says she… Read more »

I agree with your comments. However, I think Crystal is doing alittle clean up public relations now. She lost some of her own Carly/Crystal fans on that night who also felt she overstepped the mess Nelson created with his hateful message! I have a few friends that were fans of Venice that heard about what she did and have changed their opinion of her! She created her own mess and I don’t think this interview did anything hugely substantial to clean it up! Maybe she should truly move on and keep her mouth shut regarding this from this point on!

The fact was, I lost A LOT of respect for several stars that night. They retweeted, lol’d, sent love to the instigator of the cyber bullying. She seriously feared for her life? WTF?

Uh huh. I watched it happen. I saw Crystal’s replies. They don’t make sense unless she saw what was being said about Kristian. Not only that, but she replied to me, and in her reply, she indicated knowledge of what Nelson said. Given that, her assertion the next day that she didn’t know what was going on is what doesn’t make sense. You can get upset. You can blame me for daring to have my opinion, which is that Crystal didn’t handle it well at all. It’s not like I really care.

I know you said you’re not a fan of hers and despise Venice (from your stated admission above). This is not a sarcastic response, merely a curiousity. I’ll understand your response either way.

Crystal stated in an recent interview she wanted to return to Days because when had her first go around with the show, she was (paraphrasing) ‘a young messed up actress’ and she had left on bad terms with several other cast members. Unfortunately, now as a middle age actress, she is leaving on the same terms.
And just to add, I had a lot more respect for crystal before she started her twitter account. Just as some people don’t know when to keep their mouth shut when they are polluting nonsense, the same is true for tweeting.

I thought this whole situation was ridiculous. Nelson made comments about an actress and somehow that’s Crystal’s fault? No. NO ONE came to the defense of KA other than her fans that night. Several Days actors followed Nelson and none of them said a word. Why was it on Crystal’s head to do so? If KA’s fans had a problem with the things Nelson said, then they should have tweeted HIM and ONLY him about it. There was absolutely no reason for them to attack CC for Nelson’s words. He didn’t even mention her. Those fans, not Crystal or even… Read more »

The underlying problem with all of this is the simple fact that society has become uncivilized. Just because someone has a right to say something doesn’t necessarily mean that he/she should. We’ve become a society of tweeters and bloggers and talking heads who complain about and insult practically everything and everyone, and it’s so often done under the veil of cyber-anonymity. Nothing constructive is being built from all this “discussion”; and in fact, much of what I read online, when I stomach the curiosity to read stuff online, I consider outright cyber-bullying.

I’ve watched soaps for 30 years and part of the enjoyment is making fun of the stupidity of the stories and, yes, goofing on the actors. With all due respect the people who are wringing their hands with pious condemnation of Crystal might want to consider getting a new perspective here. CC is an actor, not your pastor. Nelson Branco may not be your cup of tea, but I liked that he was the cranky dude in the balcony. These judgmental labels are oddly priggish for people who watch a genre that requires a low moral code.

The hypocrisy I see in some of the posts here is astounding. For those of you that are familiar with the Sony boards, the nastiest and cruelest verbal attacks have been directed CC’s way by fans on a particular thread there, just because she plays a character they don’t like. I haven’t seen anyone step forward and ask them to stop. Why the double standards? Hate shouldn’t be condoned anywhere.

Arguably, Crystal’s only mistake was maybe not telling Nelson to ‘shut the hell up’. But how could she if she didn’t see the tweets in question?

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
