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 »

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
