Thanks for the interview Michael!! Really enjoyed it of course, as I do all of your interviews and James’ interviews as well! I will definitely miss Ejexie’s scenes. Loved that Lexie was not only Ej’s sister, but his best friend. I miss Renee Jones as well, but wish her the best of luck!! Looking forward to more of your interviews Michael! Thanks

James Scott is such a great actor. He is very deserving of an Emmy. This year he should have been nominated for the silent scream scene when Sami came into the rumpus room. Last time he should have won because of the way he portrayed EJ’s reaction to Sami calling off their wedding and leaving with the children. I think it was his best work. The Academy was wrong in making a decision that actor has to interact with another cast member in a scene to win an Emmy. James Scott did a stellar performance without the need of anyone… Read more »

Thanks Michael! Love the interview with James. I’m surprised he’s on twitter, but it sounds like he has a lot coming up that he’s wants to share with his fans and that’s a good outlet for that. Looking forward to your other interviews.

Thanks. James should be very happy with the Emmy win for writing. James, Ari Zucker, Matt, Melissa and the other actors in the ‘Snowstorm’ episode brought the writers vision to life. Imo all the actors share in this win for giving the words the emotional impact on the screen that they deserve.

i disagree i pretty found this episode flat and boring as hell except for the Matt scenes, i don’t get why it won some emmy instead of the episode of Johnny’s missing, these daytime emmys seem now to be a big fat joke anyway.

Well that was the episode that won the Emmy. I preferred that over shock value stunts such as grief sex. It may have been interesting to fans of Ej/Sami, but there was a lot like myself that didn’t care for it.

Euh no it has nothing with Ej/Sami, it has everything with being an episode with lot’s of heavy drama, scenes well acted and well written and lot’s of history and interactions between important characters therefore i stand by what i said; these emmys are quite a joke and the Johnny’s missing stuff was a FARE BETTER episode than the episode when Maggie and her egg baby drama..boring stuff was featured.

And to me it was not ‘shock value’ at all but daring, edgy and deep storytelling, the only flat factor was Johnny being found under a table, that was ridiculous but before that it was great soap opera unlike this boring and cheesy snowstorm stuff, so we can agree to disagree.

Julie I agree do not do twitter or facebook you are putting yourself at risk now days people are just nuts I feel safe posting a thought now and then on Mr. Fairman’s blog but if a fellow poster get’s upset I do not respond. My Mom if she was alive would call it in poor taste to treat people you don’t know badly. Just like these comments on Cruise & Holmes tacky and really I don’t care about their personal lives, I am referring to Daytime Confidential why is this a news item for Daytime soaps?

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
