As many know, TV Guide Canada’s Nelson  Branco first broke and reported the news that Days of our Lives co-executive producer, Gary Tomlin is on his way out of Salem.

In this week’s Suds Report, Branco received some elaboration from sources stating, “Gary did not agree with the firings. He was very upset about having to let Nadia, Crystal [Chappell], and Louise [Sorel] go. He doesn’t understand what’s happening. But he did understand and suspect that he’d be the next to go.”  An actor also told Branco, “He’ll be missed.”

On-Air On-Soaps has additionally confirmed that an official announcement on the situation will be addressed as early as Monday morning.

So, who is set to replace Tomlin? Stay tuned.

I don’t know what’s going on at Days either. Maybe all the fired Days employees can start up their own soap. Morale has got to be low on-set with no one knowing who’s next. When you let top talent like Louise and Crystal and Nadia and great newbies like Bren go, it just boggles the mind. I don’t want to see just the Bradys and Hortons. I’m enjoying Quinn’s story and his interaction with Vivian, Gus, Chloe, and Victor. I can’t wait to see how his connection to Viv is revealed. It’s a shame this story, the actors, and fans… Read more »

I agree. Im not Gary’s Tomlins fan at all especially because we dont have EJAMI, but I agree with him in relation to the firings. I love Louise, Crystal, Nadia and now Bren. They are great assets to the show. There stories were just getting interesting. I hope this firing means that RAFE will be gone for good.
I do however wish him the best of luck in his future.
Im glad the vets are coming back but its sad at the way its happening.

I think the drama going on behind the scenes at Days is more fascinating than most of the drama we’re seeing on the screen right now….

Funny, I was thinking the same thing that Frank Valentini would take over the reigns. I think Ed Scott would make a great EP. He worked wonders there before.

I love Ed Scott- he gave EJAMI the best story but when Tomlin came along, that bwent out the window. I wish he would come back.

It would be nice to have an EP whom actually listens to ALL of the fan bases not just the one of his favored friend. This is a business and personal favorites should not over shadow the business and that is what has happened with the EP and DH. Personal and business should not mix because then you get crap and that is what DOOL has been for the past year, DH pushing HER characters and HER favorites as was GT, NOT what the fans wanted. I pray that the new EP looks at the show as a whole and… Read more »

I wish him well but I’m glad he’s gone along with his Passions agenda. Passions was cancelled twice for a reason. I hated Passions and that influence on DAYS just made me switch the channel. I agree w/ S. McLaughlin. The show should focus on the big picture and not just the favored few. The slanted writing was a MAJOR turn off. It’s unfortunate that so much time was wasted on such drivel when 2013 is just around the corner. The fans should have been given compelling and riveting s/ls not manure. What a waste of resources and talent the… Read more »

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
