Lisa Rinna Reprising Her Role As Billie Reed On Days of our Lives!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

The hits keep a-coming from Days of our Lives, who is making an exciting and giant push under new creative head writer, and Daytime Emmy-winning scribe, Ron Carlivati.

Now making her way back to Salem is Lisa Rinna, who first gained soap-famous notoriety for her portrayal as Billie Reed, the daughter of Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow).

Rinna, who has been appearing as a series regular on Bravo’s hit reality show franchise, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, since 2014, has been back at the NBC daytime drama taping new episodes as Billie as of this week.

Billie’s return is slated for sometime in the early part of 2018. DAYS is not letting the cat out of the bag of just what will bring Rinna’s Billie into the action in Salem.  She last appeared on the series back in 2013, before Billie left Salem for a job in Europe.

So, what do you think will bring Billie back to the canvas on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

Yawn!! The character of Billie ceased being relevant about three returns ago! She was so poorly written, always pining for Bo that she was never allowed to be a character, she was just more of an appendage. While I do like that many returning characters are actual vets, it gets tiresome when the returns are all about grudges that should have been over long ago. If Billie hasn’t matured this time around, at 50 years old, this should be the last go round for this worn out character. I don’t know where the ratings are at, it for me the… Read more »

The Hattie/Bonnie story is epic fail to me…we are to believe all this time these two have been locked up they have the same hair color and style of Marlena/Adrienne and their bodies are the exact height and shape?

What a joke, eh Jimmy?! My grandmother said the Marlena imposter game has been played before. Deirdre’s real life twin pulled the same stunt as Samantha, the erratic evil twin. I am not too fond of Lisa Rinna—never was….not looking forward to her return. We can consume the same bland soup so many times before the stomach begins to heave. I would love to see an original storyline hitting Salem. Furthermore, I hope Rafe develops an interest in the new Ciera—soon Rafe will be holding Hope’s purse while she leans on the aid of her cain. Watching Rafe and Hope… Read more »

Can anyone say “Real Housewives of Salem?” With Lisa’s return as Billie and Eileen Davidson’s numerous “Days” personas from which upon to draw, not to mention, Ron C.’s fertile mind, anything is possible!!!!!!!!

LOFL!! 70 years old and still being kidnapped. .imprisoned. ..hauled around in sacks and shot. That is so true. Like how many times can Kayla get knocked upside her head and not have permanent brain damage and STILL being a doctor! ! And what was with Angelica standing over Adrienne’s prone body on a bench at the Brady pub? Talk about laugh out loud. That place had patrons it was broad daylight and suddenly no one was seen coming or going from the pub till Hattie showed up. And old Hattie and big Ange trying to heave go Judi Evans.… Read more »

That scene outside the pub was so absurd it was laughable…just like over at GH with their shoot out with the one guy with Sonny and Jason…he is aiming a gun at them but Sam walks in…so he hesitates pulling the trigger and points it at Sam instead of taking out Sonny and Jason first…Jason rushes to Sam as Sonny just stands there and watches…then the guy pulls the trigger and shoots Sam which could had been avoided if Sonny reacted quicker instead of just standing there with his eyes fixed on his true loveJason!!!

Judy…Jan was a useless throwaway character in the 2000-2002 high school story with Shawn and Belle and Phillip etc. It was an otherwise great story! Then after the 2003 killer story Jan was inexplicably brought back and held Shawn in a cage for an entire summer. She was just a cartoon paycho and played by two awful actresses!

Can’t wait! Will she move into the DiMera mansion? I don’t know what the story could be, but hope Ron has something good planned. I think Billie was wasted the last time she returned.

If they are going to bring back people from the past woundnt have to let go of some of the cast they have now. the show is get so good now cant waite till tomorrow show

When Ron Carlivati became head writer at GH in 2012 he bought old faves back then too during his tenure there.So maybe Ron knows that the best way to get viewers to start watching Days again is to bring past characters who the viewers like.

James R. Poissant
Guest
James R. Poissant

i remember that. And we still have Bobbie, Monica, and Lucy to see on that show from time to time. I love what he’s doing at DAYS so far and his episodes have only started airing a short while ago. The only thing I do hate (still) is how DAYS is 6 months ahead in production. It seems like I’ve waited an eternity for Sami and Will to return.

Days continually brings back characters from the past yet it does nothing for the ratings or for the characters and story.

How many times has Billy come back now? What about Chloe? Hattie? Etc.

Stefano?

DAYS has brought characters with mixed results, Paul, but Ron Carlivati’s DAYS is different!

Wrong Paul, ratings for Days has gone up 100,000 viewers already. And that’s even with the stories with Hattie and Bonnie included.

Paul
Guest
Paul

I honestly never argue on here but I’m right. Ratings go up 100,000 and then drop 120,000. “Proof is in the puddin'” since Days is in 4th place. But my point is that they bring back all these past characters and which garner a bump in the ratings but like all bumps they are short and then you come down. I mentioned all those other characters because where are they now? Hattie will be back in prison soon and Chloe, well, she’s waiting for her next bus ticket to Salem. The writers come up with a scenario to bring characters… Read more »

Billie returns to Salem with her husband—-Peter Blake played by Tyler Christopher!!!

unless he is too young for that role so maybe he will be Andre’s son?…or Billie knows Stephano is ALIVE!!!

Phil

There is only a 7 year difference between Jason Brooks and Tyler Christopher! I don’t see an issue with him playing Peter Blake! Of course I don’t think he will play Peter, but a connection to the canvas like this would be great! Ron is making DAYS the best soap on daytime!

have a feeling but i could be wrong that tyler will either be a recast nicholas alamain or alexander kiriakis ( the son of justin with the late anjelica )

I heard those rumors…it will be interesting to see if he is Nicholas, especially with the returning Vivian!!!

Andrew Hass
Guest
Andrew Hass

I think Tyler Christopher will be playing Alexander Kirakis and that means his character will be a part of a major family right from the start.Plus Sonny and Alexander could be rivals since they are both Justin’s biological sons and that has Justin torn between his sons.Plus since we the fans haven’t seen Alexander since he was a kid the show can do whatever they want with him without having to rewrite things.Plus i read somewhere that Christopher’s character will tied to Vivian’s return,So maybe Vivian and Alexander’s mother Anjelica have been working together but with Anjelica dead Vivian and… Read more »

from what I’ve read… in SOD

Billie will become bff w/ Kristen and they will gossip endlessly about Hope, and start some lie about Jen, together they will be the towns busy bodies, and oh wait a minute this is Days, not the Real house wife of Beverly Hills, ooops my bad. either way, w/ Ron C writing the storyline i’m sure it will be extra cheesy.. Bon appetite Dool fans…

The Real Housewives Of Salem-but wait neither Billie nor Kristen are housewives…knowing RC maybe Billie is really Stephano wearing a mask-lol

Just one more reason to love Ron C. He is going to save my fave show, which is finally fun to wattch again! He should have dueling Billies, and bring back both Lisa Rinna AND Krista Allen- one of my faves from oh so many years ago

i just dont like the Hattie/Bonnie story-its way too cartoonish…both have the same exact hair, weight and height of their counterparts plus these types of stories have been done to death which they never do on British soap Coronation Street…Ron depends too much on lookalikes ect to drive a story…he does have his good moment but lets get the show more down to earth like Y&R-this is why it stays at number one!!!…i know they done doubles too but Ron;s more at comic book level…that scene with Angelica and Hattie trying to lift Adrienne outside the Brady Pub with no… Read more »

I just read that Billie’s return might just be a brief and might have something to do with her mom.So maybe Kate gets into some kind of trouble and Billie returns to help her out and then she leaves again.

Jimmy

I’ve never been a fan of Lisa Rinna’s portrayal of Billie. She looks like she could be Lauren Koslow’s sister, not daughter. I was a much bigger fan of Julie Pinson in the role and would have rather seen her return.

But now that Billie is back, hopefully Chelsea’s return is on the horizon! I hope the writing will be better this time than it was for Billie’s 2012 return, and hopefully she will be connected to Tyler Christopher’s new character.

Sorry, not a fan. I was a fan of Billie Reed’s (Lisa Rinna) way back when, in the 90’s. I thought she had chemistry with Robert Kelker Kelly. (I liked him as Bo, too, was never a fan of Peter Reckell’s). Lisa’s last few returns were poorly written, and what is the point of bringing back all of these characters, on a short-term or recurring basis? This was done over at General Hospital too, and all that we ended up with was a very bloated cast, poor story-telling, and forgotten storylines. No thanks.

OK…you know what: I have Z-E-R-O interest in that Lisa Rinna chick returning to DOOL. If TPTB really wanna bring the Billie Reed character back onto the DOOL canvas, then they need to bring Julie Pinson back to play the character again. To me, Julie Pinson was WAY MORE BELIEVABLE in the role of Billie Reed!!!!!

Hey…just saying……….

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

Photo: JPI

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

Photo: JPI

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Photo: JPI

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

Photo: BlueAeris

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
