Next week, beginning with the August 3rd episode of Days of our Lives, daytime favorite, Kassie DePaiva (ex-Blair, OLTL) is reprising her role as Eve Donovan.  When viewers last saw Eve was sent to Bayview after being declared criminally insane.

Days fans will recall, what Eve did to Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) when she was grief-stricken over the murder of her daughter, Paige.

According to Soap Opera Digest, and in the twist, Eve will meet up with someone from her high school days, Harris Michaels (Steve Burton) who will also be in Bayview.

When Burton was originally on the show in 1988 as Harris, Jake (Scott Reeves) and Harris knew that Eve used to be a prostitute so they made a bet to see who could score with her first.  Harris went on several dates with her, but once Eve learned what Harris was after, and she attempted to kill herself on sleeping pills. By that time, Harris had fallen in love with her, but Eve never forgave him.

With Eve, Harris and the previously reported return of Tamara Braun as Ava, will Bayview become DAYS’ version of  “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest?”

What do you think of a Harris and Eve reunion? What do you think will happen at Bayview? Glad to see Kassie back on DAYS? Comment below.

Ugh….

I wanted to see the REAL Eve Donovan again.

Charlotte Ross is no longer Eve to me and Kassie can act circles around her. This IS the real Eve to me! So exciting!

She may be a better actress, but it’s still not the same when the original Harris should be with the original Eve because they show flashbacks that would be cool. You can’t do flashbacks with Kassie, but you can do flashbacks with charlotte. It’s not the same. It’s just going to be like Philip with Chloe when Phillip comes back it’s not Jay Kenneth Johnson so who cares

Flashbacks can be reshot. It’s been done in the past. Perhaps Charlotte Ross wasn’t available. Also, I would hardly compare this to Philip. Kassie Depaiva is a soap legend and neither Philip is in the same league.

Days always seems to be a cuckoo’s nest anymore! I am not sure mental health advocates are pleased with these plot points.

If mental health advocates are going to complain about any current soap storyline, I’m thinking it’s the horrible mess they have made out of Sasha on GH. Though Wigged Out Whitley is probably a close second, since that one involved some serious elder abuse against Abe as well.

I don’t think they’ve made a mess out of Sasha; we know she’s being drugged. There are viewers that are pissed Sasha can’t catch a break; yes. But as far as mental illness, her story isn’t really about that at this point; just two rotten people using her bout with her grief-stricken breakdown to convince a judge she’s still in the throes of it.

I guess if it gets the Maurice Bernard seal of approval (since he’s become the mental health aficionado) Sasha’s story is fine. And the two evildoers lol will pay a steep price ala Sonny’s wrath….

great to have her back

While they’re at it, why not bring Scott Reeves back too, and party like it’s the 80s again!

Tamara Braun onscreen with Steve Burton again, how fun (GH)!! I’m all for any s/l with Burton in it, top notch actor!

Really excited for the return of Kassie DePaiva! Hope she gets a long term contract! Love her.

They should bring Charlotte Ross back instead

And even the Devil said amen.

I miss the REAL Eve Donovan. And she’s the only one who should be in scenes with Harris Michaels

Love when they incorporate history A hook up with Harris and Eve could be hot

Welcome back Kassie! I don’t think Charlotte Ross is interested in returning to Days or soaps.

Nope. Never cared for Kassie DePaiva.

I’m delighted to hear that Kassie DePaiva is returning to Days! She’s one of my favorite daytime actresses 🙂 I loved her on One Life To Live and Days 🙂 Good luck, Kassie! 🙂

Welcome back Kassie! So glad to have you on our screens again.

Arianne Zucker Reflects Back on the ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape with Donald Trump, and Speaks to Her Exit from Days of our Lives

It’s been eight years, but somehow seems like ages ago, that Arianne Zucker was thrust into the mainstream public limelight, unfortunately not for her work as Nicole on Days of our Lives, but for the Access Hollywood taped that surfaced when former president Donald Trump  and current Republican nominee, visited the set of the (then) NBC soap opera, and met Zucker.

The tape captured a hot mic moment between Trump and then ‘Access’ host Billy Bush inside of their bus which featured lewd remarks about Zucker between the two men.

Speaking on the moment, Zucker opened about it on Rachel Uchitel’s Miss Understood podcast, where the video version of the interview is now on Uchitel’s You Tube Channel. Back in 2005, Arianne was the scene partner with Trump in his Apprentice/Days of our Lives crossover appearance, because her character of Nicole was at the time a gold-digger.

Zucker shared of her on set experience with Trump from 2005, “I had a great experience. He was lovely, and I had no idea anything behind the scenes was happening. So, it never affected me.” Next in October 2016, Arianne says she it got a call from her manager at the time when the Access Hollywood tapes came to light and that is when she first heard about the situation.

The actress and life coach reflected back, “Everybody has spoken poorly about somebody in their lifetime. I don’t care who you are, everybody has, it’s just people get caught on camera doing it. Unfortunately, that happens all the time. And if you’ve ever gone to a fraternity party, these things happen. So (when she later read the taped comments) I’m going, ‘sounds like something my fraternity guys I know would say.’ But I just didn’t see it in the way that people were seeing it.’”

Expressing why she never made an official comment when the press were asking for one, Arianne revealed, “I didn’t make a comment though, because I was in fear of losing my job. So I didn’t say anything.”  She added, “I felt attacked by the media because I knew all they wanted. I mean, the biggest thing was to get Trump off the ballot. I was like, that is not my job.”

Later, Arianne explained she felt she received no protection from the situation. “I got no apology from my place of employment. I really got no apology from NBC. I felt I had no protection. ”

DAYS fans are counting down and not happily that about six weeks from now, on July 29th, when Zucker makes her on-screen exit from Days of our Lives. After being fired for standing up to Corday Productions for on set sexual harassment and discrimination charges, the actress formally filed a lawsuit she has brought against her former employer which includes charges of wrongful termination.

Zucker said on her upcoming departure from DAYS, “I will not say how I leave the show. I do respect that we don’t want to share that. We want the fans to be excited and enticed.” However, Arianne confirmed that the character of Nicole is not ‘killed-off”.

So, what do you think of Arianne’s comments reflecting back on the Access Hollywood tapes media frenzy with Donald Trump, and her upcoming exit from DAYS? Weigh-in. But first, check out Ari on Rachel’s podcast below.

DAYS Dan Feuerriegel on EJ Keeping Eric From His Child, “He’s in the Deep End … There’s No Coming Back for Him Now”

On Days of our Lives, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) has been reunited with her biological son, baby Jude. Her husband, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), is now keeping a major secret, and in order to keep it from coming out he had to get Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) out of Salem, and keep both Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) and Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart) quiet and at bay.

However, as in any good soap opera, time is running out for EJ. What will happen when Nicole and Eric (Greg Vaughan) find out that EJ is not the little one’s biological father, but Eric is? And, what will happen when they realize EJ knew the truth and hid it from them?

This is just one item in a laundry list of skullduggery committed by EJ since he has been in Salem. With Arianne Zucker set to exit on-screen on July 29th, it looks like we are heading into the home stretch of the baby switch storyline.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Dan Feuerriegel to get his take on the situation and what it has been like working with Greg and Ari in the story.

Dan shared on EJ’s despicable decision to pretend he is Jude’s bio-dad, “I know I’m a terrible human being, but I love playing a terrible human being.” Feurriegel added, “Oh, he’s in the deep end. Like, there is no coming back for him now.”

The DAYS star also noted if EJ had done anything more nefarious to Sloan, his character might not ever be able to come back from that. “There’s only so much hatred EJ can get from the viewers that it probably would’ve been a bridge too far for me to just make her (Sloan) disappear,” clarified Dan.

As to his time working with Arianne Zucker as his on-screen wife, Dan had noting but praise for her. Feuerriegel expressed, “I loved working with her. She’s so good. She’s an amazing actress. She’s fantastic. Every scene that I did with her, I didn’t have to do anything because I just rode on the coattails of what she did. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her.”

Dan also had high marks for his on-screen nemesis, Greg Vaughan, “Greg is fantastic, like everybody in the storyline was amazing. Greg’s amazing … Ari’s amazing … Jessica was fantastic and that’s what made it work. I’m very grateful to have worked with every single one of them.”

On soap operas and especially on Days of our Lives, when someone exits, or ‘dies’ on-screen that doesn’t mean goodbye forever, and Dan knows this too. In regards to anyone who leaves Salem, the actor joked, “I’m not going to say the doors closed, because you never say never, especially in Hollywood or on a soap. I mean, I’ve come back and I was like two inches shorter and (with) a completely different face.”

So, how do you think Eric will find out that Jude is really his son, and that EJ has been lying to keep Nicole? Let us know in the comment section, but first Check out our conversation with Dan from the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.

Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers Return to Days of our Lives to Celebrate Abe and Paulina’s Juneteenth Wedding Anniversary and a ‘Going Away’ Party

There are several reasons that Days of our Lives favorites Lamon Archey (Eli) and Sal Stowers (Lani) are making a return on the Wednesday, June 19th episode of the Peacock streaming soap opera.

First, Lani and Eli come back to Salem to celebrate the wedding anniversary of Abe (James Reynolds) and Paulina (Jackee Harry), which happened on Juneteenth Day which is on June 19th.

Juneteenth, which is a Federal holiday, is an annual commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States after the Civil War, has been celebrated by African Americans since the late 1800s.

Meanwhile, the return also serves as a “apparent” send-off for Johnny (Carson Boatman) and Chanel (Raven Bowens), who are set to depart Salem, since Johnny landed his dream job in California.

Look like Elani is also attending their going away party, but are the departing couple (with Chanel being pregnant) really going to leave Salem? Stay tuned.

Stowers made her first Days of our Lives appearance back in September of 2015. Lani is the adoptive daughter of Abe and the biological daughter of Paulina. As for Archey, he arrived on the scene in 2017 as Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) grandson. Sal and Lamon were last seen on-screen in March of this year.

Looking forward to seeing Eli and Lani back on DAYS? Do you think Johnny and Chanel are exiting the Salem canvas? Comment below.
