DAYS fans, here’s hoping you don’t get a fiasco like OLTL got.

Awwwwww, Rex and Gigi were a cute couple on OLTL. The bullying storyline was really well done and generated a lot of storyline for the last year of the show.

I loved the character of Mimi until she was one in a long line of normal women who were turned into man hungry, desperate, lying psychotic shrews by Jim Reilly. Ron C. LOVED to write for her as Gigi on OLTL, where she was fun and spunky, and very early Mimi like. I hope this version of Mimi is still funny and spunky but once again loveable! They should bring back a version of Phillip K. for her. John Paul Lavoisier played Phillip, he played Rex to her Gigi, and they were involved in real life. They had mad awesome chemistry! Phillip needs to come back not written as a corporate douche bag. He was always the slacker, the surfer type who was not interested in rhe family business, which was a WELCOME presence in the Kiriakis household!!

Best summation, Jovin…..exactly what I would have written.
I love both Farah and John Paul….and, yes, their sexual chemistry was fast, furious and through the roof.

One great thing about RC.
He never forgot the ”forgotten” soap stars ..
When he has an opening he will bring them back, and that is respect for them and a good thing.

Oh my god!!! This is awesome!!! I loved Mimi when she was on the canvas. Can’t wait to see her again. Wonder if she’ll mention anything about her mother Bonnie?

“… I have for a long time advocated that Gay Twitter should adopt Days of Our Lives for this very reason; watching the soaps alone can be an exercise in nostalgia, but watching them together can be a real scream”

We need to ramp up the storyline with Ciara… She is a great actress and hope there are some big plans for her. Good to see old Days alumnis to come back but rarely the storyline is good enough to keep the interest..

Come on Ronnie.!!!! Great Job so far!

Definitely agree with you Tim S. I think Victoria Konefal is doing a very good job as Ciara. She’s bright and energetic and present in every scene. I hope they involve her in a bigger story. I’m sure she will rise to the occasion.

Geezus…..

Mimi was a waste of a character even BEFORE she became one of ReRon’s pets. I can’t imagine what a shit show she will be now. And did they really need another excuse for him to bring trailer trash Bonnie back again.

Any more Lockhearts show up and I come up there and start throwing pitchforks around!

About time! The show has brought back everyone else, Shawn, Belle, Philip, & Chloe why did it take them this long to bring her back.

“Daytime Emmy Award-winning soap opera”
That’s nice. I like reading that in regard to Days.

I liked Mimi. Liked Bonnie even more. Unfortunately, she’s in prison so I doubt we’ll see much of her. Don’t know what story Mimi would be involved in. I wonder if Belle will be back too.

Richard

I wonder who she will be involved with! Very age appropriate for Eric and/or Brady!!!

Good Lord, NO. Not a Mimi fan, never was, but she was part of the woodwork on Days back in FF’s time. But FF lost me completely when she was on Days, especially the things she had to say, the people she dissed, including soaps in general when she was on OLTL.
Anyone but her.

THIS WEEK: Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi Exit DAYS As Chabby Says Their “I Do’s” In Heart-tugging Moments

By now, Days of our Lives fans have learned that this week marks the end of the run, for now, of Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi as Chad and Abby.  But before they exit look for wedding bells to ring as Chabby remarries.

When Marci Miller decided to depart the role of Abigail, Kate Mansi returned to the role she played before Miller to finish the arc, which would have potentially left Abby to leave town and Chad to be without her, since Mansi signed on to just complete the storyline,

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest  (in latest issue on newsstands now) the thought process of having the duo leave together: “While it was kind of agonizing to make the decision that Chad will exit the canvas with Abigail, I decided that was the best thing for the couple, it was the best thing for the fans and it was the best thing for the show. The way that they exit is very, very open-ended. It’s not like someone is going to die. They leave happy and the door is completely open for them to come back. As much as I’m sure some people will be sad to see them go, I think they’ll be happy to see them go together. It just seemed so unfair to not give them a happy ending. And I just didn’t see how that happy ending would work if Chad stayed in Salem and Abigail left.”   He added: “Obviously, if the time is right, the story is right, and the people are available, they’ll be back.”

Looks like we all need to get out the hankies after checking out the latest NBC promo for Chad and Abby’s wedding and farewell.  You can watch it below.  Then let us know if you are sad to see Billy and Kate exit DAYS, and if you hope they will be back sooner than later via the comment section below.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, Deadline.com noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.
