Remember Brandon Walker from Days of our Lives?  Nicole’s (Arianne Zuker) sexy brother?  Well, Matt Cedeno who spent some time in Salem has just landed a recurring role in the upcoming Lifetime series, Devious Maids from Desperate Housewives creator, Marc Cherry and co-starring AMC alum, Susan Lucci!

According to Deadline.com, Cedeno along with Melinda Page Hamilton are late casting additions to the dramedy soap.  Both are expected to be featured in the tweaked pilot and will be upped to series regulars if the series gets renewed for a second season.

Cedeno will play Alejandro Reyes, a successful recording artist.  In story, when returning home after three long months on tour, Alejandro just wants to lounge by the pool — while behind his back, Odessa (Melinda Page Hamilton) and the new maid Carmen are maneuvering themselves for Total War.

As previously reported, Devious Maids follows the lives of five maids with ambition and dreams of their own while they work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills. It stars Ana Ortiz, Judy Reyes, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez as well as Susan Lucci.

So will you be checking out Matt on Devious Maids?  Let us know!

Definitely can’t wait for the show because I know it will be great with Susan and all the other people in the cast that are in it. It sounds like a show we all should watch. Good luck to everyone.

The rich Latino character is a devious ploy. It’s a smokescreen to detract from the obvious racism of this soap w/c cast all Latina actresses to portray the help. This soap is a version of “the Help” w/o the racial segregation issues and yet this soap discriminates against racial minorities! Now hollywood’s all for racial diversity among the leading ladies bec they’re going to potray the help. How offensive! This is right up hollywood’s racist alley. Majority of the Latino characters have to be poor and doing menial jobs as the help while the white characters are rich. hollywood always… Read more »

Uh, you do know the majority of the “help” in Beverly Hills and other rich suburbs of Los Angeles are Latino, don’ t you? There are very few black housekeepers and maids now (and they used to be the majority). How is this show perpetuating a stereotype of racism when it’s actually going on?

To Mitchell1660: Uh you do know that Asian americans have higher education accomplishments and graduation rates than whites? And that Asian americans have a higher median income than whites? And that according to the LA Times only 40% of americans are among the professional and managerial roles as compared to 50% of Asian americans who are part of professional and managerial roles? Therefore shouldn’t there be a majority of Asian americans among corporate and academic and medical tv shows? Shouldn’t there be more Asian americans among soap operas w/c are abt the wealthy? That should be realistic but of course… Read more »

Michael E Knight auditioned 4 Mark Cherry but I guess he didn’t get a part. I wish he he was going to be on this show. That would really give me a reason to watch.

DAYS Brandon Barash On Stefan’s Resurrection: “You’ll See Some Revenge, Corporate Takeovers, Losing a Memory … Maybe Gaining of Memories”

Dr. Rolf is at it again on Days of our Lives! While Jake DiMera has met his maker, apparently his twin brother, Stefan O DiMera is coming back to life.  That sets the stage for Brandon Barash to reprise his original DAYS role.

In a brand new interview with his on-screen brother, Dan Feuerriegel (EJ) on the Days of our Lives You Tube Channel, Barash talks on what viewers can expect once Stefan is completely back in action, and how he feels about taking on the darker twin once again.

Brandon teased: “You’ll see some revenge, corporate takeovers, losing a memory … maybe gaining of memories.”  With Stefan back in the DiMera mix, look for the two brothers to not always see eye-to-eye. Barashs shared that they’ll be, “Butting heads for sure”.

Meanwhile, will Stefan and his true love, Gabi (Camila Banus) reunite once she knows he is alive? Barash weighs-in on that and more ‘burning’ questions.

You can check out the chat below.

Now, let us know, are you glad that Stefan O DiMera is back on the Salem canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Brandan Barash Shares Reaction to Jake’s Death on Days of our Lives: “It Was Fun Getting To Know You”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jake (Brandon Barash) met his untimely demise, when he was shot by a mugger.  Thus, signaling what would seem to be the end of the line for the character.

However, on today’s episode of the NBC soap opera, Jake visited a grieving Ava (Tamara Braun), so perhaps there is more than a ‘ghost of a chance’ that Barash is sticking around.

As previewed exclusively last month during our virtual interview with DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati …the Salem scribe revealed there would be another death in Salem, following the murder of Abigail Deveraux DiMera (Marci Miller), and the character would be ‘dead-dead’.

However, speculation is running wild that with the return of Dr. Rolf, that perhaps Jake will be resurrected … or Barash will once again play Jake’s twin, Stefan O. DiMera!

On Instagram, Barash had some fun with Jake’s demise with comparison side-by-side photos – one of which features Barash as Jake covered in blood, and reading the Handbook for the Recently Deceased!

Barash captioned his pic: “How it started/how it’s going. #ripjake It was fun getting to know you. 🙏🥃”

So, what do you think about DAYS killing Jake? Do you think Brandon will be sticking around Salem? If so, as who? Comment below.
