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.

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… Read more »

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 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”

Robert Clary, DAYS, Y&R and ‘Hogan’s Heroes’ Favorite, Passes Away at 96

Very sad news to report.  Robert Clary, who became a soap opera fan favorite for his roles as Robert LeClair on Days of our Lives, and Pierre Roulland on The Young and the Restless has died at the age of 96.

Clary, best known to primetime fans for his role as  Cpl. Louis LeBeau, on the comedy series, Hogan Heroes, passed away on Wednesday according to his granddaughter, Kim Wright, who informed the Hollywood Reporter.  Robert was the last surviving member of the iconic cast.

Throughout his daytime career, Clary always sang in his roles and is most remembered as Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) best friend, Robert LeClair.  The two would always perform at “Doug’s Place” in story.  Clary played the role from 1972–1973, 1975–1983, and again from 1986–1987.

During a break from DAYS, Robert went over to Y&R and created the role of Pierre Roulland when the CBS daytime drama first premiered from 1973-1974, and once again sang and acted on the show.  Later in his career, Clary appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of Pierre Jourdan from 1990-1992.

On Clary’s passing, Y&R shared: “The #YR Family sends our condolences to the family and loved ones of Robert Clary known to the Y&R audiences as “Pierre” on our debut episode!” 

B&B also honored Robert by posting: The Bell Family & @BandB_CBS re sad to learn of the passing of #RobertClary, who portrayed Pierre Jourdan on @BandB_CBS from 1990-1992. Robert was a talented actor, a kind and courageous man, and a friend to all who knew him.”

Four decades into his career, Robert, who was Jewish, came forward with the fact that was incarcerated for 31 months in an Auschwitz concentrate camp, and tattooed with the identification “A-5714” on his left forearm. He was the only one of his captured family to make it out alive.

Clary was married for 32 years to the late Natalie Cantor, the second daughter of Eddie Cantor. She passed away in 1997.
