Lisa Rinna who announced her plans to depart Days of our Lives some time ago, even though she just returned this past March, already has lined up her first gig post-Salem!  Turns out Rinna will be appearing on the Donal Trump celebrity reality competition series, Celebrity Apprentice.  But like this season’s Dancing with the Stars, this latest edition of Celebrity Apprentice will feature past contestants in the All-Stars version.

Rinna is confirmed to return to the boardroom series, along with the other members of the All-Star cast revealed on The Today Show including:  Bret Michaels, Gary Busey, Dennis Rodman, Marilu Henner, La Toya Jackson, Dee Snyder, Omarosa, Penn Jillette, Stephen Baldwin, Lil Jon, Trace Adkins, Brande Roderick, and Claudia Jordan.  Past winners: Piers Morgan, Joan Rivers, John Rich and Arsenio Hall will be appearing in advisory roles assisting Trump in the boardroom!   Filming for the All-Stars edition begins next week and will premiere in March of next year!

Meanwhile, Rinna tweeted about her final tape day on Tuesday at DAYS stating  “It was my last day on Days of Our Lives – tomorrow I start a new gig. Off we go!”  Rinna is expected to be seen on screen as Billie Reed through mid-January!

So what do you think of Rinna’ s decision to leave DAYS and join the Celebrity Apprentice All-Stars?  Was her return a big disappointment?  And, what do you think of her chances at winning Celebrity Apprentice this time out? Weigh-in!

I do like the Billie character just not Lisa Rinna playing her.
Sorry, but I don’t believe she is that good of an actress!
Krista Allen was the best that played Billie

When I watched DOOL and she came on Robert Kelker Kelly was playing the role of Bo and she had good chemistry with him not so much with Peter Reckell I think it is another one of those deals where they bring an actress back and sometimes they just don’t click anymore.

I love Lisa as Billie…missed most of the faux-Billie’s who came along after but what I did see, none the the other Billie’s had the natural “Lisa Rinna spark.” Like everyone else who returned over the past year, she too was embarrassingly under-utilized. She would’ve been great paired with Jack as a confidant during his troubles with PTSD/Jennifer woes.

LR is leaving? Was she ever there? Her character was in like a handful of scenes since she has come back that I sincerely doubt most people would even notice she is gone.

I now prefer Julie Pinson as Billie.. I liked Lisa more way back in the day. I thought she played Billie so much better then. Her latest return was a big disappointment.

They did not use Lisa Rinna much at all and I don’t see any development in her individual storyline at either. I think they were all concentrating on bringing Eileen Davidson back and giving her a fantastic front-burner storyline instead. Perhaps bringing in Julie Pinson as “Billie” again would have made the difference. Actually, I don’t think it was necessary to bring the character of “Billie” back at all.

They should’ve paired her with Dan instead of having Dicole, but now she is useless

The return was a big disappointment because the writers didn’t give her a story. I was glad to see her back, but Billie didn’t do anything. They totally dropped the story of having Billie spying on the DiMeras and then when Kate lost Countess W, where was Billie to go? Days totally fumbled her return so not surprised she’s gone. Look forward to seeing her on CA. Hope she does well. Glad Star Jones didn’t return.

NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell Says Peacock Hit 18M Paid Subscribers Up From 15M In September

On Monday, during a webcast session at the UBS TMT investors conference, NBC Universal CEO, Jeff Shell shared that the NBCUniversal streaming service, Peacock has hit 18 million paid subscribers.

Interestingly, that is an uptick of 3 million paid subscribers since the end of September of this year, where the service had 15 million.

As soap fans know, Days of our Lives debuted exclusively in its new home on Peacock on September 12th, and viewers who watched on linear TV and NBC had to switch modes and pay-in for a subscription to watch the show.  However, there has been no quantifying data released on just how well DAYS is performing on the platform.

In terms of its sustainability and its ad-supported streaming platform, Shell added: “We were late coming into streaming, but we clearly chose the right business model.”  Shell noted that this strategy has helped offset declines in linear TV revenues, and a worsening advertising market.

The CEO went to explain: “We believe in the premium video ad-supported, dual revenue stream essential broadcast and cable on streaming, driven by key programming.” Shell also shared that declines in cable subscribers is putting pressure on affiliate fees and advertising rates, so it’s becoming more important than ever for Peacock revenues to offset falling cable TV revenues and that the TV ad business is “definitely getting worse.”

So, what do you think of the uptick of subscribers to Peacock since September? Is Days of our Lives a key player in this? Have you gotten use to watching your favorite soap on the streaming platform? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”
