In another behind the scenes stunning twist, the  Huffington Post has learned that Lisa Rinna is returning to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Billie Reed!

HP reports from their source, “Days Of Our Lives‘ has a great new team behind it, and they are determined to make sure the show not only survives but thrives Part of the strategy is bringing out the big guns, which includes bringing back Lisa Rinna and Billie Reed.

‘Lisa is doing a James Franco,’ the source says, referencing Franco’s recent guest role on General Hospital.  There is something full circle about bringing her back to the role that made her famous and now harnessing her celebrity to secure the future of the show.” Rinna’s scripts are closely guarded and her storyline will only be revealed to the actors who have scenes with her. Huffington Post is also saying that the deal with DAYS  has been confirmed, and Lisa will be back in Salem in December to start shooting.  Rinna was last seen in the role of Billie Reed in 2002, when she briefly reprised the role.

So what do you think of Billie coming back to Salem to shake some “things” up?  Let us know!

Lisa Rinna is the REAL Billie, the definitive actress for this role, so I am excited to hear she’s coming back! Just keep Billie away from Bo and Hope because that s**t got old way back when Krista Allen was in the role. It’ll be good to see the real Austin and Billie in scenes together, and I hope they revisit Billie’s friendship with Jack.

This is the same exact trap they did with Crystal Chappell and it only landed her into being painted into a corner. As for the James Franco….Lisa Rinna isn’t what you call a A Lister. She is more of a D! She can not save this show, only the fans can and most of them left when Crystal and Nadia did after they turned their characters into garbage.

Lisa is hardly a big name star anymore, say like Franco (if she ever was is debatable). That said, it will be nice to see her return. But DOOL’s future hinges more on the writing than stunt casting. And while the new writers may be an improvement, they desperately need a storyline (like the baby switch) that will get every one talking ( and hopefully watching) again.

So not impressed….why didn’t Days use the talent it already had on the canvas for this reboot stuff instead of trying to get the big boost from bringing old characters back? I don’t see that tactic working so well for Days so far….

Because viewers like me left when John and Marlena left and now that they’re back, we’re back! Makes sense to bring in characters who belong and deserve to be on Days, unlike screenhogs like Daniel, Melanie, Rafe, Gabi, etc.

I have nothing against Lisa Rina, but WTH is Days thinking??? They get rid of Crystal Chappell who has a huge fan following so they could put Bo & Hope back together just to bring Billie back????? Guess they figured out very quickly that they had nothing left to write for those two and were too embarrassed to admit their mistake? Then Days wonders why there ratings are in the toilet….they continue to slap the fans in the face!

You’re just assuming Billie’s going to mix things up with Bo and Hope. Not necessarily true. Her mother and brother are also on the canvas. Billie is probably coming back to help Kate with Countess W and go toe-to-toe with Madison and Brady.

agree…. getting mixed up with bo and hope got old fast and lost steam… like the going toe to toe with madison and brady – who are steaming hot…. would be interesting.

Love Lisa but would much rather have Nadia or Bryan D back.

Bryan Dattilo is returning in feb. 2012, lisa rinna was the best at playing Billie reed.

I agree with most of what has been said. Nothing against Rinna and or Billie, and I know Days has a budget to work with, but I miss Nadia/Chloe and would love to see her and Phillip return (not necessarily as a couple –relax Broe fans haha) and Lucas, too, and my two cents on another story…… SPOILER ALERT STOP READING IF YOU DON’T WANNA KNOW WHAT IS COMING…… If they wanted to make Maggie someone’s grandmother, they could have had her be the mother of that character’s mother and bring her back instead of the father.

PS and by the way, as far ahead as Days tapes, if she starts taping in December, she won’t air until freakin’ July, anyway. We’ll all forget she’s coming by then! :p

It would make better sense to bring Bryan Dattilo and Tony back,then Carrie and Austin, Jackass can go IMO
I love John and Marlena,but will be happy when this SL is over.
we all have our fav: charecters we want back,but the FANS cannot and will not save Dool,only the writting can,I am loving the story with Maggie and Alice’s letter,but OMG please dont make Daniel her son…I cant believe they will go there,but hey IF John and Stafano can be brothers anything can come out LOL @@
If Dool wants another baby story,let Johnny be Lucas’s son 🙂

Loved her as Billie, but I doubt she will be in the mix with Bo, so why should I care? And once again hiring LR does nothing to help the very absent under 35 age bracket on the show.

The show is so drama free you can barely call it a soap these days. There is nothing to tune in for, nothing to talk about, no real reason to watch. At least before the reboot the show had some dramatic storylines (whether we loved them or not).

It is a sad day when I am praying for someone to get shot on the show just to get something interesting going on.

LUMI

her lips are bigger then her acting IMO
she has been gone alot of years and on to other things in her life,that was the way it should stay.
much wanted is Lucas and Tony

Patrick

she had her big honkin lips “fixed” lol… if you saw her on celebrity apprentice this past year… she looked so much better….

I love the fact that Lisa is returning, but Bryan Datillo should be brought back too. A big no to Tony DiMera and his way too many fake deaths. I want the last one to be for real…

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?
