LISTEN TO THE BROADCAST: Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman with Co-Host Kimberly McCullough & Guests: Finola Hughes, Brooklyn Rae Silzer, Gina Tognoni, Galen Gering, Minae Noji & Michael Sutton!

Last night on the August edition of Soap Nation Live with Michael Fairman, we welcomed our very special in-studio co-host General Hospital’s Kimberly McCullough (Robin) for a lively, entertaining, and revealing jam-packed broadcast.

The two-hour show kicked-off with Michael chatting with Kimberly about Robin’s return this week to the ABC soap opera and what it means for the relationship of Patrick and Robin and much more!

Next, the first guest of the night, Finola Hughes (Anna) of General Hospital joined Soap Nation Live! where she and Kimberly talked about working with each other, being directors, their favorite Anna and Robin scenes and much more! And then in a surprise call-in to Kimberly, Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) joined us on the line in the most endearing and cutest moment of the broadcast.  Hearing the Scorpio gals all chatting together was quite the moment!

Later, two-time Daytime Emmy winner Gina Tognoni of The Young and the Restless joined the show for her segment discussing her highly anticipated return to daytime in the coveted role of Phyllis Summers, and what fans can look forward to when she premieres next Monday on the August 11th episode of the CBS soap opera. Gina also had some fun with us with the fact that both she, and former Phyllis Michelle Stafford (now Nina GH) premiered on their new soap homes in comatose states with their characters!

Then in a heartfelt moment, Kimberly’s former on-screen love interest, Michael Sutton (Stone) taped a special message and interview sharing his thoughts on working with Kimberly in the important AIDS storyline as Stone and Robin.  We played it back as a surprise to Kimberly on the air, and you will hear her reaction!

Next, we welcomed Galen Gering (Rafe) of Days of our Lives to Soap Nation Live!  Galen discussed the state of Rafe’s love life where the guy finds himself in a bit of the doghouse after Rafe slept with Kate … while he really seemingly loves Jordan!  In addition, Kimberly asks Galen about all those random shirtless scenes.  Plus we discuss how DAYS tapes so far ahead that they just finished apparently finished taping New Years episodes.

After our Kimberly McCullough/Robin Scorpio Game Show Trivia segment where one lucky fan won tickets to all the GH individual fan events at the upcoming Fall Getaway Orlando event, the broadcast closed when Kimberly welcomed her dear friend Minae Noji (Ex-Kelly, GH and GH: Night Shift) to the show where we bantered about Minae’s role in the motion picture Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles out today, and playing the sex addicted OB/GYN Dr. Kelly Lee!

Listen to the latest episode of Soap Nation Live after the jump! Then let us know what was your favorite part of the broadcast!

I knew Levi was a bum! He has the Aztec necklace. He was just using Maxi. I hope the wedding doesn’t happen. I can’t stand him and dumb hair-do.. Goodbye to you Levi!

Fun show, thanks. I’m glad Galen is getting to be involved in a storyline where he gets to be a bit naughty, he’s so whiter than white most of the time.

DAYS Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.

If you don’t already have the DOOL app on your mobile device to watch the segment, you can get more info to download here.

We will have more to say on the memorable performances at Michael Fairman TV later in the week.
