Last night on the September edition of Soap Nation Live with Michael Fairman, we welcomed our very special in-studio co-host General Hospital’s Laura Wright (Carly) for a lively and entertaining, and revealing 90 minute broadcast.

Michael and Laura welcomed their “Soap Nation Live Hottie Night” line-up of guests throughout the show which included: General Hospital’s Ryan Paevey (Nathan), Dancing with the Stars, and former GH star (Ex-Jagger Cates) Antonio Sabato Jr, and Days of our Lives Greg Vaughan (Eric)!

Laura discussed throughout the episode myriad of hot button GH topics including, Carly’s current romantic entanglement with Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Franco (Roger Howarth), and how things really twist and turn in the weeks to come.

The Daytime Emmy winner also chats on Billy Miller taking over the role of Jason, which was previously played by her longtime scene partner Steve Burton, and how important the Carly/Jason relationship is, and how she is looking forward to working with Billy Miller, and that in fact they are shooting scenes together coming up soon!

Ryan Paevey (Nathan) during his segment talked about the scene this week on General Hospital, where Maxie and Nathan finally share their first kiss after stabbing or shooting people, and working with Kirsten Storms (Maxie)!  And he reveals what it has been like seeing the overwhelming fan response, especially from the ladies, in such short time to his first daytime soap role.  Paevey also shared he hasn’t been privy thus far to the Intel of who Nathan’s real biological father is given the twist this week on GH where we learned it isn’t Victor Cassadine (Thaao Penghlis), and the sexy star shared some cooking tips! He is quite the cook and much more as you will hear!

Antonio Sabato Jr. talked about his debut this week on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars ,and how it felt to have  to dance first of all the celebrity contestants for the new season, and live in front of the studio and at-home viewing audience! Antonio also talked about what it’s been like to try to learn the new dance routines with two-time DWTS pro dance champ, Cheryl Burke!  In addition, he shared his memories as Jagger Cates on GH and says he would love to return some time in the future if he was asked back.  And Antonio, like Ryan Paevey, talks about their construction talent, but Antonio has taken that a step further with his new syndicated series, Fix It or Finish It!

During his segment, Greg Vaughan talks about Eric’s on-air and priestly struggles on Days of our Lives, and recalls working on General Hospital with co-host Laura Wright as Lucky Spencer, and managing a soap career and being the dad of three young boys. He also reveals what he hopes will happen to  the former “Father” Eric Brady in the future and much more!

Now below listen to the entire broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with co-host Laura Wright, and then let us know what your favorite moment of the show was?

Michael Fairman…I absolutely LOVED this program. Laura was a great cohost…and Ryan, Antonio and Greg couldn’t have been more pleasant and charming!

Ryan: “I’m feeling a bit doughy!” Hahahahaha…that was too funny…and he actually meant it! It was so much fun to hear Ryan (who plays my new favorite GH character, Nathan)…being so sweet, intelligent and personable. He’s not only stunning…he sounds like a sweetheart!

The entire show was completely fun and entertaining!

I’m not sure if I need ASJ back at GH at this point (none of his co-stars is really around, except for KMc), although he had a nice reunion with Robin on the second season of GH:Night Shift.

Oh well, of course there’s Sonny, too, but you get my drift.

Days Of Our Lives

Rob Scott Wilson and Victoria Konefal to Exit DAYS as Ben & Ciara

After all the speculation and reports, it looks like #Cin may be taking it on the road!  According to multiple reports and confirmed by Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, next week on the Friday, July 8th episode of Days of our Lives, it will mark the final appearances of Rob Scott Wilson and Victoria Konefal as Ben and Ciara.

However, while Ben and Ciara will be off the canvas on a new adventure, #Cin fans won’t have long to wait to see them appear on their screens again, when the following Monday, July 11th they will be part of the first episode of the Peacock limited-streaming series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapter Two.

According to SOD, the exits of the popular characters came about when Victoria Konefal opted now to stay with the NBC soap opera and to continue her desire to spread her wings and do other projects.

DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati shared: “She (Victoria) really just wasn’t available on a regular basis, and in the way our show works and how you have to schedule people, it just became less feasible to keep her in that status.”

The head scribe also added: “The couple is so popular, you want them to have a happy ending. But then that involved writing Rob off the show, who doesn’t necessarily want to leave.”

There has been significant social media and internet buzz over the last few weeks that Rob will actually return to Salem as a new character.  Once such character being bantered about is that of Justin and Angelica’s son, Alexander Kiriakis,  Could that be the trick up the writing teams sleeve to keep Rob on DAYS, or is something at else at play and this is a red-herring?  Stay tuned!

So, what do you think of the upcoming departures on-screen of Ben and Ciara on DAYS? Comment below.

Sal Stowers On Final DAYS Airdate Shares: “What An Incredible Journey These Past Seven Years Have Been”; Lamon Archey Adds, “Days fans, THANK YOU! We made a SUPERCOUPLE & a SUPERFAMILY #ELANI”

That’s a wrap for both Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey and their on-screen alter egos, Lani and Eli Grant.  Today on the July 1st episode of Days of our Lives,  the couple exited Salem paving the way for the real-life departures of Sal and Lamon who are going on to pursue other TV and film roles.

On her final airdate, Sal tweeted: “What an incredible journey these past seven years have been. To all our #Elani crew and #Days fans thank you for loving and supporting us the way you did. We will miss you much, I will miss you. Xx”

Lamon Archey also added his own tweets, sharing: “#Days fans, THANK YOU! We made a #SUPERCOUPLE & a #SUPERFAMILY #ELANI”

In story, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) had a special farewell for Eli, and Abe (James Reynolds) adopted Lani so he could be her father again, in very touching moments on the air-show.

Still the departures of Sal and Lamon, who became quite the popular duo as #Elani, will be a very big blow for the long-running NBC soap opera.  But in soap operas, you never know when your favorite actors or characters might return.

So, sad to see Lamon and Sal as Eli and Lani exit Salem today? Comment below.
