Wouldn’t it be fun to have some stars from our cvancelled soaps be in the presenters mix? Faves from ATWT, GL or AW, as well as AMC and OLTL!

It would be fun, but they would have to pay their own airfare and the cost of the seat at the show.

I know, which is BS. But I hope many will see it as an investment in their career and how much it would mean to their loyal fans. Also, this could be their last chance to attend.

What a terrible thing to say………..Rachal Ray should go and wash some dishes & clean up her cooking mess !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She is so wrong from the truth….Soap fans aren’t interested in her cooking show..I could care less about cooking shows…….Any cooking show I find BORING..These shows make you climb the walls of bordum……………………….I am still interested in my stories. That will never change..This is what I like..And I stick to it…She should be on the food network..That’s where all these cooking boring shows belong..Stay on their own food channel..Not on the major networks……………………

I agree with you susan m, shes another one on my can’t stand list, Hln, rachell ray for a host bad mistake, the majority of people who watch the daytime emmys are soap fans without them I don’t think any one would watch, come on do you think people are tuning in to see barbara walters get a emmy? I don’t think so. Cooking shows are the programs that are boring and should be put on the food channel and not infesting our daytime hours.Talk, Food, and just plain stupid shows are all over the place on cable, Give me… Read more »

Only one soap star and 2 talk show hosts, Hopefully that will change as we get closer to the big day. I could care less about who will win best dopy talk show, I pick oscar the grouch to win in that category. game shows are interesting I do watch 3 of them and they are always in the running, and one of them always wins. This year I am hearing it will be dedicated to One life to live and All my children, That will be a tearjerker. Seeing that will make it even more final that it is… Read more »

I am not sure Erika Sleazak is a good choice for a host for many reason. She is probably the best daytime actress (sorry Kim Zimmer fans) but she doesn’t have the star power. she could host a little segment but not be the host. Great actress but not enough clout. Remember daytime emmy’s are more than soaps and even then Erika was known for OLTL very few daytime stars transcend soaps let alone daytime – Alison Sweeney, Kristian Alfonso, Deidre Hall, maybe Tony Geary, Genie Francis, the guy who plays Victor Newman on YR, Cameron Mathison and Susan Lucci.… Read more »

I think Cameron Matheson (though, I’m not a big fan) and Allison Sweeney would be good choices. Their careers have definitely expanded beyond soaps. They would do a great job and represent everyone very well.

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
