      He was in the hospital until a few days before his death being treated for depression.

        But what about the several weeks before he went to the hospital. Why aren’t there any more episodes for Kristoff? Was he fired or placed on recurring status by Y&R? EB (Victor, Y&R) stated Mal Young/Y&R was edging Kristoff off Y&R.

      Did Y&R add to his depression? Was he let go?

        No, he wasn’t let go.

    I wouldn’t miss it. I was hoping we would get a few more episodes with him, one will have to do. This is so very heartbreaking all around. My heart goes out to all of family and friends. He was such a class act, gracious, funny and to think that smile and laugh we have all come to know and love so much is silenced and at rest is just so sad. I too lost my son, December 17, 2017. He was just 30 and left behind a 6 year old boy and a 9 year old daughter. I found myself swallowed up in my grief, all consumed. I had panic attacks daily for months. I couldn’t leave the house. I broke down constantly and I have thought about taking myself out of this world multiple times. Losing a child is incomparable to any loss one could ever experience. We have 6 children and 12 grandchildren, and the loss of one leaves a person feeling unbalanced. Like your anchor is not holding you anymore. You just don’t feel grounded at all. Then there is the shattered heart that never feels complete again. It’s odd how having so many children I love so very much cannot absorb the space one child had in your heart but rather the opposite seems to happen. That place in the heart for that one child, seems to expand and deepen leaving the biggest emptiest void where my love slips into and out of being. I love all my children and grands. I feel bad that the love I have for them feels like it’s draining away and I am still so consumed with grief and loss that I may not not get back to where I need to be with all of them. Kristoff is with Julian and I’m sure they are thrilled to be together again. I pray his family are not overwhelmed by grief the way I am. I wish I could be stronger.

      Cora, I was planning to make a comment on Mr. St. John, giving my condolences. And I do that now, in reply to you. I will definitely be watching Wednesday’s episode as well as Friday’s episode. His untimely passing is a tragedy, particularly for his family, friends, and coworkers.

      Yet I read your comments, I was moved by them, and I feel compelled to offer you my condolences on the loss of your son at 30. I certainly don’t mean to be intrusive… You have articulately described your grief process, devastating as it is. You can relate to Mr. St. John’s feelings over the loss of his son. Though not touched personally by such a loss, I have witnessed others close to me who have had to deal with such loss, and the repercussions have been significant. As we see, people can react differently to loss, grieving in their own time and in their own way.

      But Cora, you are strong! The fact that you have remained strong is a tribute to you! You have survived the loss of your son and your “shattered heart.” I honestly can’t imagine what you’ve been through, but you are still here. You clearly love your family. Your children, grandchildren, and others continue to be your “anchors,” and they need you, as I’m sure you are their anchor. I hope you will reach out to your anchors when you feel down and need to talk. Best wishes for you, Friend!

      My condolences to you, Cora. Your beautifully written expression of sympathy for Kristoff St. John as you relate his to your own loss was very moving. I was just speaking of something similar today to a friend; that no matter how big a family or friends, how much love one has and feels, you can never replace one for the other. The loss of someone so loved leaves a gripping ache and longing…and a “vacancy”…a sorrow so deep that it physically hurts.

      I’m sure your other children understand your pain right now and know the depth of your love for them all. Allow yourself to grieve without worry or guilt about others; they have you and you them, always.

      Being in pain and grieving has nothing to do with not being strong. It has to do with having a heart full of love and loss and sorrow. Let yourself feel and grieve in your own time without the weight of guilt. Not an easy thing to do but I’m so glad to hear you’re surrounded by love.

      My best to you..

      Cora I too am sorry for your loss. I hope to not be intrusive but have you tried grief counselling or find a group who have gone through what your going through.

      Sometimes it’s not that people are just depressed but they are grieving. God bless you.

    Dear Michael Fairman:

    As us fans process the shock and grief, it suddenly occurred to me that I should offer you my condolences. I never met the but you met with with him many times. I believe you interviewed him numerous times throughout the years.
    He was a friend of yours. As you try to offer comfort to his fans, it might be that you need some comfort yourself! I am so sorry for your loss.
    One thing I have always appreciated about you is you give your heart and soul as a soap journalist. You have a lot of integrity and are a dying breed it seems.

      Hi Harry:

      Thank you so much for the message and your kind words. I am struggling with the loss of Kristoff, as we all are.
      But I truly appreciate what you wrote.
      Best always,

    I’ll be watching . I love this guy and his role on the Y&R. My daughter and I had a chance to meet him 5 years ago at a Halloween patch with his youngest daughter. While the kids played he and I set on a bench and chatted for an hour. He was the nicest man RIP

    So, so sad watching Neil and his beloved son, Devon. I was wondering if all the pride and love he had to show his son and daughter Lily, ever since his son’s death, didn’t prolong and add to Kristoff’s pain and grief. The role as loving father, and grand-father to his children and grand-children would have done me in. Though not real, just saying the words and showing the emotion had to have been terribly hard and draining on some level. I so hope I am wrong. I can’t believe today, will be the last time to see that smile and twinkling eyes. He will be missed.

  28. Chadam

    This is really sad! Not just for Y&R but for his family who has been through a lot the past few years. I just hope that he is finally at peace.

Kristian Alfonso Departs Days of our Lives After 37 Years

In a bombshell announcement, Days of our Lives enduring and ever-popular star, Kristian Alfonso (Hope Williams) has decided to make her exit from the NBC daytime drama series after more than 37 years in her role.

Kristian made her debut as a teenaged Hope Williams in 1983 and quickly rose to popularity and became soap-famous; along with her on-screen romance to Bo Brady then played by Peter Reckell. Together as one of soaps most all-time popular duos and separately, Alfonso has remained one of soap opera’s most notable performers.   There were only two times throughout her time in Salem, that Kristian took breaks from the show; during one of them she starred on CBS’s Falcon Crest.

According to Deadline who broke the news; in a statement to the outlet, Alfonso shared, “I feel blessed and honored to have been invited into people’s homes for over three decades. However, it is now time for me to write my next chapter.”

And it appears its already a wrap for Alfonso, who will not be returning to the series when the show is planned to return to production in the fall and come early September.

Kristian added:  “I will not be returning to Days when it resumes production in September.  I’ve already filmed my last episode several months ago.”

In a heartfelt post on her Instagram account, the actress gave special thanks to the late Betty Corday (mother of DAYS EP Ken Corday), and of course, her millions of fans who loved her as Hope throughout her time on the soap.  You can read it in full below.

REPORT: Days of our Lives Targets September Production Restart

Looks like Salem and Days of our Lives will be back in full-swing come September, if the target date holds true as revealed today by Deadline.

According to their sources, Corday Productions, who produces the long-running NBC daytime drama, sent out an email to cast members on Thursday notifying them of their intent to resume production come September 1st.

However for this article; reps for NBC, Corday and Sony Pictures TV declined to comment.

Days of our Lives has had enough shows banked through early October of this year, so was not pressed to get back into production amidst the coronavirus pandemic as much as CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (which went back into production a week and half ago), and The Young and the Restless and General Hospital who are targeting a mid-July restart.

All three of the shows, except for DAYS ran out of original episodes to air, back at the end of April of this year.

So, excited to hear that their may be plans ahead come fall for DAYS to come to back and tape new episodes? Comment below.

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.
