As we previously reported, this past Tuesday marked Daytime Emmy winner, Suzanne Rogers 40th year on Days of our Lives as the beloved Maggie Horton!  What Suzanne did not know was that she was being set-up for a big surprise from the cast and crew and her mom on the set of the Horton Town Square at the NBC sounstage!

While the cast and crew and press were gathering, On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman was enlisted by DAYS to help keep Suzanne occupied while they rolled in the cake, and got all the attendees in place!  So what better way and least suspecting way to do that?  Tell Suzanne that Michael was here to interview her for her 40th anniversary, and to meet him in her dressing room.

Without Suzanne knowing this was a delay tactic, Fairman conducted a true 40th anniversary interview with Rogers all about many of the key points in her illustrious career with DAYS including: Maggie with the red shoes, the three Johns in on-screen love life (John Clarke, John Ingle, John Aniston), when the show “killed-off” Maggie in that huge publicity ploy, her winning the very first Outstanding Supporting Actress Award at the Daytime Emmys, and so much more.

But while she was answering the questions, we had a flip cam and iPhone filming the whole thing, and what was to follow!  Thus, the reason for thebootleg-esque footage quality! Next,we waited for the signal from the overhead public address system telling everyone to get to the stage!  If you watch the video, you can see it was all part of our plan.   What happens next is you will see Suzanne’s immediate surprise as we show you how she met all of her castmates, crew members, and the press.    Following that, Michael caught up with her to get her thoughts on the surprise and to wrap up the 40th anniversary interview!

Watch the interview/surprise/”punkfest” after the jump and let us know what you thought of it?  What has been your favorite story for Maggie over the years?  Share your thoughts!

How very lovely. Suzanne Rogers is the heart of DAYS now that Frances is gone. I have met her in person on two occasions. It was a blessing. Szanne is so gracious, beautiful and grounded. My grandmother watched DAYS from its first day. Maggie was her favorite character. She loved the Red Shoes story the most of all storylines. Three generations later and we all still love Maggie> So pleased DAYS planned a celebration in her honor.

DAYS’ Christie Clark Shares Coronavirus Health Update

Days of our Lives fans love her as as Carrie Brady, and are often very happy when they find out Christie Clark is back for a visit taping episodes of the NBC soap opera.  But that’s not what’s happening right now.  Right now, we need Christie to get all her strength back.

Clark shared via her Instagram today a health update on her battle with the coronavirus that hit both her and her husband while they have been living in the United Kingdom.

Christie expressed: “Oh my goodness, just starting to feel ok on this end. My husband Tom and I have had coronavirus fairly bad. Not as bad as some, no hospital needed. Hope your all well! I’m sure at this stage you all know of someone with it? When you get it, you can’t call the grandparents for help, cause they will get sick. We know about 10 people in our little circle that have had it. Like clockwork, Day 7,8,&9 were tricky and haven’t been able to taste food for a while. So excited to be in the land of the living again & start exercising…soon. Thanks for all the love. Stay safe!”

Send your well-wishes to Christie and Tom as they are on currently getting stronger and recovering from the virus via the comment section below.

There won’t be any “And the Enmy goes to _” come this June, where NATAS had originally scheduled three nights of award presentations honoring the best in daytime programming at the 47th Annual Daytime Emmys.   The three-day event was slated for June 12-14th, at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena. California.  Deadline broke the story of the decision to postpone daytime’s biggest night, for now.

NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision: “These were extremely difficult decisions to make, but at the end of the day the health and safety of our event attendees and staff must remain our paramount concern,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision. “We are closely monitoring public heath authorities’ guidance, seeking feedback from our awards communities, and evaluating the flexibility of our venue and production partners as we plan for the future in this unprecedented context.”

 NATAS chairman Terry O’Reilly said on the change” “Given our concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that we will not be staging the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena this coming June.  As there are so many unknowns right now with the flow of information changing on a daily, almost hourly, basis, it would simply be irresponsible to move forward with our annual celebration of excellence in daytime television at this time.”
