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 do the work– otherwise the disease wins. I hope this isn’t his fate– so many truly gifted people have traveled this path, but it seems no one ever learns the lesson from others, they have to go down that road themselves.

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.

Prayers to Tyler and to his children. Tyler is so talented and is missed on #GH.

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 talk to a very close friend or professional. God Bless You

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 is nothing for which anyone wishes upon himself.
I wish him the best, in the hope that he does get help. After all is said and done, it is the kids who suffer the repercussions the most. Bless you, Tyler. Stay focused.

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 to protect & prevent a future tragedy.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Wally Kurth & Chandler Massey Deliver Poignant Scenes As Justin Tells Will ‘Don’t Give Up On Life’

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the scenes capturing the minds of DAYS viewers featured touching work from Wally Kurth (Justin) and Chandler Massey (Will).

In it, after seeing Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) in prison, Justin comes upon Will, the man responsible for his beloved wife, Adrienne’s death (although the circumstances of just how Will was responsible have yet to come to light within the time jump).

Justin informs Will he is taking over Ben’s case, and Will thinks that with Justin on his side, Ben will have a better chance of getting out of the slammer.  Then, a guilt-ridden Will tells Justin that he thinks about Adrienne every single day and he will never stop hating and loathing on himself for being responsible for taking the love of Justin’s life away from him, and for what it has done to Will’s husband, Sonny, who has lost his mother in the process, and caused a huge rift in their marriage.

As things get more emotional between the two men, Will tells Justin that in his heart Adrienne was like a mom to him. Then, an emotional Justin tells Will he knows he did not mean to harm Adrienne.  Will thanks Justin, but thinks Justin hates him.  It is then that Justin reveals he could never hate Will.

Justin admits he hates what Will did, but let’s him know in no uncertain terms that he thinks of Will as a son, and will not and can’t stop loving him.  As Justin begins to tear up, he becomes emotionally overwhelmed by the sadness of the entire situation, and tells Will, “You’re a part of our family for better or worse.”

Next, Justin reminds Will that no matter what happens life goes on.   He himself is a perfect example as he has fallen in love with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and is happy for the first time in many months.  Then in the punctuation point of the scene, Justin tells Will to never give up on life and the two embrace.

Stephen Nichols On His DAYS Return As Stefano: “I Knew I Didn’t Want To Be A Cheap Imitation.”

By now, Days of our Lives fans have witnessed that the heralded return of longtime favorite, Stephen Nichols came with a twist.  When Nichols re-emerged on the canvas, he was now playing Stefano DiMera, but in the face and body of what seems to be Steve “Patch” Johnson.

Nichols, who along with Mary Beth Evans, have been known as enduring supercouple Patch and Kayla, and now they find themselves in the Salem time jump in a different set of circumstances,  First of all, Kayla is romantically involved with Justin Kiriakis (Wally Kurth), and Nichols returned as Stefano and is in ca-hoots with Princess Gina (Kristian Alfonso).

In an interview in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Stephen opens up about taking on the classic soap villain role made famous by the late, great Joe Mascolo.

Nichols admitted there was some trepidation taking on and in approaching how to portray the role: “It was daunting and a major challenge to take on. I knew I didn’t want to be a cheap imitation. I wanted to get Stefano’s essence.”

In preparing for his new journey on DAYS, Nichols noted: “I watched the master, Joe Mascolo.  I got lots of videos of Stefano. Stefano in every mode: Manipulating, laughing, Stefano with the ladies, with his children, and, of course, Stefano raging.”
