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.

thought she was long gone too…………..

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!

lisa rinna made the right decision to leave. no big storyline for her. lisa is moving on to bigger projects. i wish lisa rinna well. hopefully her talk show panel gets picked up. recast billie with julie pinson again. i liked julie in the role of billie reed.

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.

Blake

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!

Sandra

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?

Christine

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. 🙂

Chloe
Chloe

Very happy to see her go. Never liked her as Billie.

Dmitri
Dmitri

Lol, she was rude to Jo Mascolo in some interview.

Jules
Jules

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
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.

Chaz
Chaz

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

aria

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

Dmitri
Dmitri

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
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!

angela

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. At the very least she looked age appropiate. It’s not like I don’t like Lisa, I loved her with Ty Treadway on Soap Talk. So maybe she should go with doing another talk show. She is a good host. Her days as Billie are done.

Scott
Scott

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.

Patrick

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
Dmitri

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.

mo

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

Iakovos

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.

CTwildheart
CTwildheart

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.

Dmitri
Dmitri

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 been there for her half-niece/nephew. If she interacted with Will during his coming out or something. I don’t think she even had a scene with Will or Allie!!!!

Patrick
Patrick

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

Stefano looked…ala…. drugged Hannibal.

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.

rinna added nothing to the show, she is not an actress , has no skill or talent . rinna is a wanna be has been always looking for a way to make a buck! working on a line of vitamin supplements , what a joke , rinna has no degree in sports nutrition, writing another book on healrh and beauty please give use a break! rinna is a fake nasty looking bitch. nothing about her is natural beauty. woman every where please do not waste money on rinnas vitamins or her trashy worthless book! I have a degree in sports nutrtion and a boxing instructor.

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, all the time. So find another personality that your’re trying to mimic Lisa. Sironada…

Days of our Lives Blockbuster Flash-Forward Promo: Where Are Your Favorites One-Year Later?

Every year at the annual NBC Day of Days event at Universal City, California’s CityWalk, fans in attendance are treated to the premiere of the extended and exciting promo of what’s to come in story in the weeks ahead.

But this year, the promo was even more exciting because it revealed pieces and teases of what’s happened in Salem and to your favorite characters within the one-year time jump that began on last Friday’s episode when Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) woke up out of her coma and learned from Jack (Matt Ashford) that she had been asleep for a year! And … thus begins a daytime first for a drama series.

In the DAYS November sweeps promo, viewers see that Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) have their baby and so does apparently, Eric (Greg Vaughan) and Sarah (Linsey Godfrey).  Then. Jack says to Abigail (Kate Mansi) that she is her number one reporter, while Victor (John Aniston) tells Ciara (Victoria Konefal) she is the future of the family.  Elsewhere, it looks like Kate (Lauren Koslow) is waiting tables?

Meanwhile, Sonny (Freddie Smith) says “I miss him, I miss him a lot.” Who is he referring to? Clyde (James Read) is back and looks to be in an adjoining cell with his son, Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson)!  Also in prison are the ladies, Hattie Adams (Deidre Hall) and none other than Eve (Kassie DePaiva)

Watch the promo for the time-jump below.  Then, let us know what story you are looking forward to most, and finding out how it plays out via the comment section below.

Networks To Preempt Daytime Programming For Donald Trump Impeachment Hearing Coverage

Just as your favorite soaps are kicking into high gear for November sweeps next week, comes the news that due to the House public impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump, daytime programming will endure several pre-mptions starting with the first two on Wednesday November 13th and Friday, November 15th.

CBS was the first network to announce their plans for their extensive coverage, and according to the Washington Post all other networks have followed suit.  By this move by the networks it gives the hearing some extra weight and exposure to the American voters and viewing audience.

So far, leading network coverage for CBS will be reportedly anchored by Norah O’Donnell and for ABC George Stephanopoulos.

On Wednesday, the hearings begin at 10am EST, the second is scheduled for Friday beginning at 11am EST.

William Taylor, the U.S. diplomat in the Ukraine, is scheduled to testify Wednesday and on Friday Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, is scheduled to testify.

The networks are expecting big numbers for covering the hearings, as they have in the past for impeachment proceedings and hearings.

No word yet how the soaps plan for you to see the episodes that don’t air at their regularly scheduled times, or if it shifts your soap viewing schedule by several days.
