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.

Not sure it is a great idea to get twitter with some very nutty haters all over the net..but i guess James Scott can get over it and have a thick skin..after all he is an actor..

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?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: What Did You Think of the Life-Sized Duke and Ava Scene?

Okurrrr! On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the long-running NBC soap opera served up a scene in which Ava (Tamara Braun) wakes up in bed and sees a life-sized Duke doll come to life in the doorway.

If you recall, Ava ripped the small-sized stuffed-animal, Duke to shreds, previously, with a scissor in a fit of rage as she appears to be losing her grip!

In this scene, Duke returns with pair of scissors in his hand and says he’s there for payback. Ava screams out. Next, she grabs a nail file to defend herself and tries to run, but Duke grabs her.

What does Ava do next? She bites Duke. He tells her that she’ll pay for that.  Next, we see a startled Ava in bed as Rafe (Galen Gering) appears at the doorway with coffee… and wait for it … a bear claw!

As Rafe informs Ava of the accusations against him at work, she asks if he thinks she is engineering this, considering he accused her of dismembering Duke?  Rafe says he believes she is not responsible for any of this. Oh, Rafe!

So, what did you think of the scene when you watched it between larger-than-life stuffed-animal-come-to-life Duke and Ava?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
