After a few months in the “rumor” mill, but what we all knew just had to be true, Lisa Rinna is officially returning to Days of Our Lives as Billie Reed!

The Hollywood Reporter exclusively broke the confirmation of Rinna’s return today that was first brought to light by The Huffington Post!  Rinna is now going to be on contract with the NBC soap and her first episode will air on March 8th of the New Year.

According to THR: “While details of her story arc are being kept under wraps, network officials confirm that she will share “explosive” scenes with on-screen mother Kate (Lauren Koslow) and her former flame, Bo (Peter Reckell).”

Rinna stated,”I am so thrilled to be back and excited to be acting again. I have done reality shows, talk shows and I thought, what a great way to come back and play a character that I love to play so much. Feels very full circle — like a new old chapter.”

In more recent years, Rinna has been on Celebrity Apprentice, Dancing with the Stars and of course soapers remember her as the co-host of Soap Talk with Ty Treadway and her time on Melrose Place.

Welcome home to Salem, Lisa!

I really never cared for her, or as Billy Reed, I always hated her story with Bo.
Hope had to deal with NOT being the only woman in his life.
Chasing after a daughter Bo & Billy shared ruined the Bo & Hope Story.

Lisa’s Billie was best with Robert Kelker Kelly’s Bo and I loved her friendship with Carrie. If the new writers do it right it will be great.

have always liked and watched lisa rinna in whatever she does…. i do agree that she had the best chemistry with robert kelker kelly. that would make her return all the more interesting and worth welcoming her back. that would be a hot duo. she worked well enough with bo… although knowing bo and hope “belong” together… story lost steam… would be more interesting than carrie and austin… and even sami and rafe. heck better than john and marlena… however long she plays out… she intrigues me

I always loved Lisa Rinna as Billie Reed. She had tremendous chemistry with Robert Kelker-Kelly. Maybe the writers can bring RKK back – even as a different character. To see RKK and LRheating up again would be great!! I loved the two of them!! Bring Robert back with Lisa.

‘NBC News Daily’ Hits Rock Bottom In Ratings Premiere Week

While networks have seen a collective erosion over the years of the soap opera viewing audience, they are still the most loyal and fierce of any entertainment genre.

With NBC’s decision to take Days of our Lives off of the network after nearly 57 years, and replace it with another daytime news program, they would surely have a rocky road ahead of them to capture viewers in that time slot; especially now that DAYS was moved exclusively to NBCUniversal’s streaming platform, Peacock.

Nothing was more proof positive of that, than the first week ratings and performance of NBC News Daily.

The news show which premiered on Monday, September 12th came in last for the ratings period of all daytime shows for the week.

According to SON: NBC News Daily averaged 935,000 viewers, was last among Total Viewers and last in the key demo ratings: Women 18-49 (tie) and Women 25-54.

In comparison to DAYS last week on NBC, and a year ago, NBC News Daily was down -744,000 and -762,000 viewers, respectively.

NBC News Daily features the latest national and international news, plus consumer, health, and personal finance segments and is hosted by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Morgan Redford and Vicky Nguyen.

So, will ‘NBC News Daily’ find itself facing the same fate as ABC’s defunct ‘Revolution’, which replaced One Life to Live, and lasted only six months, or will the news program somehow turn a ratings corner? Does NBC really care one way or the other? Share your thoughts below.

Alison Sweeney Signs New Multi-Picture Overall Deal with Hallmark

Days of our Lives favorite, Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady) has signed a multi-picture overall  deal with the Hallmark Media.

According to Deadline, as part of Sweeney’s new deal she will star and executive produce A Magical Christmas Village with also stars Luke McFarlane and Marlo Thomas.  The movie will premiere later this year during the Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas.

In story, Sweeney plays Summer, an architect living in a small town where she’s raising her young daughter Chloe. When her mother Vivian (Thomas) finds herself in need of a place to live, her orderly life becomes a little less so after inviting Vivian to move in with them during this transition. Upon arrival, Vivian sets up an heirloom, miniature Christmas village resembling their town, and tells Chloe it grants Christmas wishes. As Chloe begins setting up the figurines, real-life events seem to mimic the scenes she creates, including Summer’s chance meeting with Ryan (Macfarlane), a newcomer to their community.

In a statement on inking the pact with Hallmark Media, Sweeney shared: “I am thrilled to continue to work with Hallmark as they continue to support my work as an actress and as a producer. I’m very proud of our Christmas movie and excited for the future projects to come!”

Lisa Hamilton Daly, Executive Vice President, Programming, Hallmark Media, added:  “Alison Sweeney has been an incredible creative partner for us over the years – both on screen as well as behind the camera as a producer. She’s long been a fan favorite and we can’t wait to continue our work together as we bring new stories to life.”

Sweeney has been making story arc visits to Days of our Lives in recent years.  No word if she will be making a return to the series now that its permanently on Peacock.

So, will you be checking out Alison’s new movie when it comes out in time for holiday season? Comment below.

Taking on the role of motion-picture star Johnny Depp will be none other than former Days of our Lives cast member, Mark Hapka (Ex-Nathan Horton). Hapka played Nathan from 2007-2011 on the daytime drama series.

Megan Davis will star opposite Hapka in the role of Aquaman star, Amber Heard.

In a statement, Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer for Tubi, shared:  “Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial has ‘Hot Take’ in the title for a reason.  With our partners at MarVista, this Tubi Original was fast-tracked into production to capture a timely take on a story that became part of the cultural zeitgeist, painting a unique picture of what millions watched play out in the headlines over the summer.”

So, what are your thoughts of the casting of Hapka as Depp, and do you think it’s too soon for a movie based on a trial that just wrapped a few months ago in June to be released? Comment below.
