Lisa Rinna Leaving Days Of Our Lives To Focus On Other Projects!

Wow!  It certainly feels there is a mass exodus, or the start of another phase of one, these days with big names in daytime!

Today, The Huffington Post revealed that Lisa Rinna who just returned to her role as Billie Reed on Days of our Lives in March of this year has decided its time to leave Salem already!

Rinna will now take time to develop a bunch of projects she is working on including a proposed shot at a panel talk show!  Here is what Huff Post said: “Lisa is leaving so she can do all of the 500 other things she loves to do.  She’s working on her Belle Gray line for QVC, she’s writing another diet and fitness book, plus she’s developing a vitamin supplement line and lingerie line,” a friend of the actress told me. “She’s also in talks to do a panel-type talk show.”

So what do you think about Rinna leaving DAYS? Billie hasn’t even had a major story since Rinna’s return!  What panel-type talk show, could she be in talks with?  Thoughts?

Wait, Billie was still there? I thought she left months ago.

Yeah, I’m with Robert. I thought she was already gone. The whole time she was there all she did was sit by Bo’s bedside and snoop through EJ’s papers. Who’ll miss her? They didn’t use her while they had her. Jupiter! She could still do all those “500 other things” with all the time off the show’s already giving her.

I thought they would’ve paired her with Daniel, given all their flirting. But when Dicole happened, she disappeared from our screens.

That was my thought exactly, Robert. Now I don’t have to read the rest of the comments!

I thought she was already gone, just still in the credits. Days wasted her again this time around. I wish her well in all her endeavors.

As long as Lucas is around, I can take or leave the rest of Kate’s offspring.

I’m sure she would’ve stayed if they gave her actual story. But I guess it’s hard to write for Billie anymore. But it was nice seeing Billie/Austin/Kate/Lucas all together again!

Well to be honest i’m not sad to see her go. Billie Reed’s return didn’t add much to the show and she seems pretty useless to me. Maybe with a decent storyline but this time around i really didn’t like her.

I wonder if Bo Brady (played by Peter Reckell) is going to end up leaving with Bille (Lisa Rinna) on Days of Our Lives. Hmm. Billie has won again.
We all are waiting to see how Peter Reckell will be written out of the show. His character of “Bo” is very popular.
So glad Days of Our Lives has brought back Joseph Mascolo as “Stefano”. That was a major surprise to me the other day when I saw him on the serial.
I wonder if Eileen Davidson will turn into the devil again?

Boy that woman sure is fickle. I remember a few years ago when she was in the street stopping traffic so she could get a job on the Melrose Place reboot.

I thought she was desperate for an acting job. I guess since appearing on CELEBRITY APPRENTICE her dance card has gotten full again. 🙂

Well……..that was a waste.

So:

Jack, Madison, Austin, Carrie, Melanie, Bo, Ian, Lexie all go this year, plus now Billie.

What is going on? They can’t keep doing this in and out thing with the actors. It’s so disruptive to the flow and a detriment to their storytelling. Stick to what (and who!) you’re committing to!

Oh and Rafe, Gabi and Roman stay.

Dmitri
Guest
Dmitri

I agree that Gabi and Roman should go. Gabi has no storyline now, since Chad told her to stay away from her friends. The only thing storyline she could have is if everyone finds out about her and Andrew, or if she is paired with crazy Nick. As for Rafe, looks like he’ll be paired with Sami soon, so he is probably going to stay. And if not Sami, he and Nicole could be hot.

Not as if she has been front or even side burner. Seems like they weren’t sure what to do with her character.

lol, what was the point of her coming back, she’s a joke!, no one cares.

Dmitri
Guest

Agreed. She just sat by Bo in the hospital, flirted with Daniel while he was making love to Nicole and mooning over Jennifer, and talked with Kate and Austin. We haven’t seen her in weeks.

Scott

Totally not surprised. She does this all the time, comes back to gain a bit of publicity and then leaves to do other projects. The latest return of Billie made ZERO sense. And she is not the actress for the role. Recast Bo with Robert Keller Kelly and bring back Julie Pinson!

I also agree. Also, am I the only person that feels she is too old to play the part? I would cringe seeing her calling Kate Kaslow “Mom”. And she also looked old enough to be Lucas’s and Austin’s mother.It’s those dam lips of hers they age her! Not to mention her over acting every scene she was in.I never realized how bad her acting was until this past go round. Maybe she needed a coach to brush up on her skills but she was BAD!!! I also agree with Scott. Julie Pinson was a much better fit as Bilie.… Read more »

It’s clear that Lisa doesn’t care about the role. She was hired and shortly hyped and barely appeared following her first few scenes. She always comes back, gains a bit of publicity and moves onto the next thing. Plus she looks like Kate’s sister, not daughter. Julie Pinson brought personality to the role. I’ve never been a fan of Lisa’s acting, I find it very harsh in its portrayal. Billie has become a recycled character.

What a shame…. course, it seems like she wasn’t on at all, or even back. there really isn’t any one for her to “date”… certainly wasn’t Bo… she wasn’t even friends with Jack… Daniel was a bust…

the only real potential… was with Shane.

she really only had scenes with Austin… and they were good.

nuff said… what can i say… she was one of my favorites, back in the day… w/ Robert Kelker-kelly.

I was sp looking forward to a Billie and Daniel story, then all of the sudden he was banging a very pregnant Nicole. She showed up today. Where was she during the explosion?

Dmitri
Guest

Thank you! Daniel and Billie would’ve made more sense than Daniel and Nicole! They were flirting, then all of a sudden he is with Nicole, who is in love with EJ (though divorced) and has feelings for Rafe??? Daniel and Nicole were hot, don’t get me wrong, but Daniel and Billie could’ve been MUCH better, as well as a Rafe-Nicole pairing, or EJole reunion, which I still think is in the cards. But Billie had no storyline. Sad. Well, at least Dannifer can reunite.

They wasted her return. It’s a shame, but with no story, I don’t blame her. She hasn’t been on in forever.

I think soap producers and networks go for the star and publicity before thinking through storylines and such. Don’t these daytime drama have long-term “bibles” anymore? Seems everything is shot from the hip and not thoroughly vetted.

MacsMom

That’s exactly what I’ve been thinking. If they’re bringing people back, wouldn’t you think they have a storyline plotted out for for the next year. But they bring people back with no real story planned.

Why do TPTB do these things? Other shows are guilty of the same thing – bring back a character with much fanfare, and then they don’t have a storyline for them! Sheesh.

Sad to see her go. Although she was rude to JM, she and Daniel had potential, and her scenes with Austin and Kate were entertaining. She could’ve brought much to the show. If I was writer, I would’ve had her have many more scenes in CW, with her mother, with Ian, with Austin, Carrie and Sami, even with Rafe. I would’ve also had her, Daniel and Nicole involved in a love triangle in which he was sleeping with both of them, but decided his one true love is Jennifer and chose her over both Billie and Nicole. She should’ve also… Read more »

OH SH*T. I just saw Stefano! what a way to bring him back… EJ looked mortified…

She was perky and fun in scenes, and I liked her today with Lucas and Kate, but as she did not have any major storylines or ‘purpose’ just kind of floating in and out of scenes at this time her character is superfluous. Wish her all the best in all her endeavors.

Lisa Rinna needs to go sit down. She is so over-rated, and for what? She RATES herself. She is just ALL FAKE personality. Where is the substanse in the woman? I understand being bubbly, BUT she is FACK, is all phony, almost like she is imitating someone that she thinks (their) FAKE personality has paid off. If its Susan Lucci, look Lisa, Susan is AT LEAST beautiful, the industry love (s) her/ to hate her because of her beauty, and MOST important, Susan doesn’t TALK too MUCH whereever she goes, and on interviews. Susan is just classy, CLASSIC Erica Kane,… Read more »

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
