Daytime Emmy winner, Tyler Christopher (ex-Stefan, DAYS; ex-Nikolas, GH), who was arrested back on November 11th for public intoxication, pled guilty to two counts of misdemeanor public intoxication, according to a report from TMZ.

The report also notes that the judge in the case rejected the plea of a police officer who begged the court to put Tyler into an alcoholism treatment program.

As previously reported, Tyler was booked on his birthday and was behind bars for two days until being released.  The incident happened in Indiana, where the actor has been residing with his family.

For the public intoxication incident, Christopher will need to pay a $440 fine.

In addition, police noted that they had received multiple calls about Tyler being intoxicated since September 14.

We hate reporting this difficult news.  All of is in the daytime community love Tyler and wish him well and want the best for him.  He is one of the finest actors ever in this genre.

Some judge that won’t reach out& help Tyler at least the cops tried

So sad. Wish he had reached out to someone–like Genie Francis, who worked with him and is
so generous and empathetic: she could offer moral support–for help. Perhaps he did or he will. I hope he will get the help he needs. I understand he is writing a book; maybe he can help someone else–let them know that it is nothing to be ashamed of–IF one goes and gets treated. He needs to get his life back; his creativity can help him sustain sobriety perhaps.

I have read reports that he allegedly lost the role of Stefan due to showing up on the set intoxicated. I read he and his wife separated earlier this year. Now, Tyler is arrested for public intoxication. I have seen too many people being given too many opportunities to get clean before they decide they have a problem. I hope he knows he might have an issue and needs to address it.

Tyler needs help, he needs to go back to rehab. If he is not serious, things will not end well. I feel bad for him.

Perhaps if Tyler’s Personal life was not made public to be scrutinized and picked at he wouldn’t feel his need to drown it out by drinking.
Nobody, nobody, can stop a person a get them help to stop drinking, that decision is Tylers.
His family can support Tyler but the decision is his.
And (all) the public putting their noses into his business will only worsen his situation.

I didn’t realize he had such a problem. By the first article, I thought he drank too much on his birthday and did something stupid like swim naked in the town’s fountain, but this is obviously not a one time thing for him. Unfortunately ordering someone into treatment isn’t as effective as him going for it willingly. Like the cop, I think I rather see him in treatment even if it didn’t stick, in hopes maybe something would eventually. This is a disease, and it is a disease that can be managed, but only if the person is willing to… Read more »

The judge is a real bozo (that’s the most minor word I can come up with..I have tons of other names I would rather use). At least if Tyler had been court ordered to go into a program, he might have a chance to see what he’s doing to himself. I am in recovery but I went through alot of Hell before I got there. Shame on his Honor!!!

Completely agree with what you’ve said James…
The judge had the law & authority to HELP Tyler see reason, yet chose not to do so…shameful !

James, wise words.Court ordered issued programs are essential! They are not only essential for folks who cannot afford the expensive, out-of-pocket rehab facilities, they are essential because the judge can impose a program which exceeds the thirty day sentence. Listen, thirty days is not enough! I have been through this time and time again with loved ones, and I can tell you that judges who hand down these tough-love sentences are saving lives.

First of Tyler has all my best wishes but secondly he needs to get the hell out of Indiana. I lived there a long time ago, and that place would drive anyone to drink! My apologies to any offended Hoosiers.

I really wish Tyler could get his addiction under control and get his life together. Most importantly, for himself & his family. Beyond that though… the new Nik recast really sucks, and I’d really like to see the true “Dark Prince” return one day.

If the reports are true that he has been on a two month bender checked himself out of rehab the man’s next stop is the grave and let’s hope he does not take innocent people with him.

What kind of judge is he that he refuses to help someone who actually needs the help. Tyler is obviously one of those people who needs a professional to help him overcome his addiction and go back to a life with his wife and children. Any judge who denies a person clearly in need of help does not belong sitting on the bench. His job should be help get him on the right path if he can. Tyler is not a criminal, just someone who lost his way. FIND A REAL JUDGE.

First thing is for him to freely admit he has a drinking problem.Otherwise no one will be able to help him.

If this is his first offensive, he want to see, the judge might want to see if he repeats himself, then you a problem. I’ve been arrested for an accident in my car, and I didn’t make the news, I had to deal with a problem and I have for 25 years, not a drop, but I had to be willing to do the challenge to save my life. Let’s hope and pray he has no more troubles.

First he needs to find out if drinking is a problem, if yes then he needs help, if he wants help go to AA, if you want to lay around at and be a slug at the Malibu spa, that’s not going to help. It’s your head you need to know. If I drink, I drink until I pass out. , one time I was outside at a party and I was slurping, talking, with some one and I passed out and hit my head on a rock. For days my head hurt. Things happen if your drinking, he should… Read more »

I’m sorry to hear bout Tyler Christopher’s problem. Love him as an actor since 1996 his debut on GH. I think publicly humiliating him isn’t necessary. I grew up with an alcoholic dad it’s tough for his children and wife also. Praying for his wife and children it’s hard to have your parent drink uncontrolled. Pray he gets help but he has to want to quit !!

For someone with a less than fragile, emotional “composition”, alcohol is a silent, comforting companion—-for others, it could be drugs and also food. It is so easy to fall into the trap, per se—I never resorted to any of the above when I went through my dark days —-I have a strong mind and even stronger family support. I truly feel sorry for Tyler—Lord only knows what drives him—-none of us is perfect and none of us has the right to judge. I saw enough of life’s sorrows while I was doing charity work—-capitulating into the pitfalls of any addiction… Read more »

I hope somoene will convince Tyler to get the help he needs.I wish his friends at GH and DOOL would get together and do an intervention for him and convince him to go into treatment. I doubt DOOL or GH will ever rehire him.

Shame on that Judge who could ultimately be responsible by refusing to put the actor (who obviously is in crisis) in treatment. God forbid Tyler loses his life or gets behind the wheel of a car and takes some innocent person’s life. A selfish, bad decision by a Judge in Bucks County PA (Jeffrey Trauger) was directly responsible for the death of a 7 year old girl in 2018. Good riddance to the Judges who play God instead of making decisions that are truly right & just and best for all. God bless the police officer who is truly trying… Read more »

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
