Melissa Reeves Has NOT Been Fired From Days of our Lives

Photo: NBC

A technical error caused a bit of a firestorm on Monday night, and a retraction early Tuesday morning when an item appeared most notably on TV Line’s partner’s feed, Yahoo News, that had a headline stating that Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) had been fired from Days of our Lives.

If site visitors and readers looked closely, there were actually two versions of the opening line that appeared.  One of which was noting that Reeves was apologizing for “catching heat” from co-stars and fans for backing a post by Candace Owens that was Anti-Black Lives Matter, and the other one that she was fired from the NBC soap opera.

TV Line early Monday morning issued this statement to clarify what happened and confirmed that Reeves had NOT been fired from DAYS: “Due to technical error, a story was briefly published on TVLine on Monday evening — and has since surfaced on several of our partner feeds, most notably Yahoo — that erroneously claims Days of Our Lives has fired Melissa Reeves. The story is false. Melissa Reeves has not been fired from Days of Our Lives. In the meantime, we apologize for the error.”

So, what do you think of the mix-up? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

How irresponsible for TV LINE to publish this trash. Who is responsible? That person should be canned.

I can’t imagine that someone just typed it up and published it. Sounds like there’s more to the story.

Hi dear fellow soap fan, The first thing you need to know, is that it was Lindsey Godfrey, who initialized the attack on twitter against Melissa. It is Lindsey who should be fired. Is she black? Has she spent her time and money helping someONE, who is black, who can attest to the goodness of her soul? Does anyone attest for her? Celebs, have faced this conflict since choosing to become celebs, rightnow, all of them are unemployed mostly and either retrospective or fighting. Lindsey has no history, so did she earn her role? or ‘big daddy’? …gave her it?… Read more »

I’m so relieved. Days was about to lose a long time fan. This has all been so sad. She is clearly not what the media wants to make her appear to be. It has all looked to me like a deliberate knock against Melissa. IG screenshoots look photoshopped to me. I’m glad this will end well. Now we can look forward to more JnJ.

The media didnt make her into anything she’s not. She’s a conservative. She’s tweeted anti gay sentiments and is agzinst BLM. Those are facts. What they obviously explained was wrong was that she was fired.

Too bad it’s not true. The show is getting rid of their gay couple, but keep this woman who supports Candace Owens AND Chick-fil-A. I believe in freedom of speech, but NOT when such words are in support of discrimination. Shame on Ms. Reeves and Days of our Lives.

Omg. Nothing is fake! The only thing they said that was in error was that she was fired. Her comments and/or support for anti-gay Chick-Fil-A were accurate…as was her stance against the BLM movement. Her freedom of choice…but controversial.

she’s in the wrong business if she anti gay, and well if she doesn’t understand the blm movement then may god save her soul. Nbc and Dool will have to ask themselves if her stance works against what they believe or she’s entitle to have an apposing polarizing point of view. They will either get pushback from their viewers or nobody will care, either way, I can’t believe Melissa Reeves is a “Karen”, little Melissa will soon find out that being a Karen is not “IN”.

The film/tv industry has always been anti-gay. The number of actors who were forced to live in “the closet” or lose everything is legendary. And it is still happening. There are many straight actors playing LGBTQ characters BUT you rarely see the reverse on screen. Straight actors have been nominated for Oscars or Emmys for playing LGBTQ characters and in some cases won the award. Freddie Smith, a straight actor, is playing an openly gay man. In fact, Freddie Smith is ONLY THE SECOND actor to portray an openly gay character on a soap opera. The first was Harold Wentworth… Read more »

Mary, I agree with the opinions you expressed here–particularly that Hollywood and soaps have been pretty antigay most of the time–but I can’t leave one thing you said unchallenged: “In fact, Freddie Smith is ONLY THE SECOND actor to portray an openly gay character on a soap opera. The first was Harold Wentworth in 2001-2003. Soap operas have been in existence for 50 plus years. Only two openly gay characters in all that time?” That’s just not true. Though the record is certainly not great, there have been openly gay characters on soaps at least as far back as the… Read more »

Anybody who retweets the delusional Candace Owens probably needs a mental health evaluation at the very least. Paging Dr. Laura! (the real one, not Abigail’s imaginary friend)

Malcolm X had a name for people like Candace. Which a Devil will not bother repeating here, but y’all can look it up if you don’t know it.

I’m a gay man and I like her. I don’t care if she eats Chik-fil-A. For Christ’s sake, I eat Chik-fil-A. People need to stop with the cancel culture already. You all just think to know what is exactly in her heart and mind. Mind your own business. Reminds me of lyrics from a Dolly Parton song. A long time gone and a long time ago When I shattered my image with the stones I’d throw The world is cruel and people are cold They shatter my image with the stones they throw Shatter my image with the stones they… Read more »

Agree with Adam — the cancel culture is doing nothing but throwing stones and shattering lives. There will be only one judge! Leave Melissa alone! She has a right to eat Chick-fil-A or from any other so-called conservative outlet and be a conservative if she wants to. I don’t think that CFA is that conservative anyway since Mr. Cathy passed. Let’s talk soaps?

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Just because you don’t agree with it doesn’t mean the other person is wrong. There are lots of people whose opinions, beliefs, etc. I don’t agree with. Doesn’t mean I think they should be fired, shunned, or I don’t watch them on TV. People just need to stop with this “cancel culture”. It’s not right.

In this case too many Black people are being executed by the police in this country for people to just idly stand by and let racist people spout out their venom and do or say nothing. The time is now to say STOP! This is unacceptable, and we as a nation will no longer tolerate it.
It’s very simple. I’m a white person, and I can clearly see the need for BLM. Change people, make racism a thing of the past. Stop enabling racists! God! It’s not rocket science!

She should be fired. Stassi and Kristen got fired from Vanderpump Rules for saying/doing racist things, and Jennifer should be fired too. It would be a good lesson to those in Hollywood to THINK before they post or say something racist in today’s world. Now whenever I see her on the show my stomach turns a little bit thinking she thinks she’s superior to black people, nauseating.

Did she actually say anything. Allegedly she computer liked a comment made about blm by a conservative African American woman who is in many quarters of the African American is very controversial. It really is time for people to calm down and engage in conversation with each other instead of trying to destroy one another. An eye for eye only results in two blind people. Before you brand me a racist I am African American and Iam not a Candace Owens fan and support blm.

Melissa Reeves is no longer regarded ? remember how Jenny Bear was stifled, stuck, sic’ of her ? then @DAYS hires Kate Mansi (Abs) And Casey Moss (JJ). just like that; instantaneous combustion !!!!

Courtney Hope Exits The Bold and the Beautiful Shares: “This Chapter of Sally Has Sadly Come to an End”

Since The Bold and the Beautiful returned to CBS Daytime with all-new episodes, it has provided viewers scenes that included of the finest work of Courtney Hope’s (Sally) career on the soap,  and now its time again for her character to depart the canvas one more time,

In story, Sally’s lies caught up with her in her obsession to nab Wyatt (Darin Brooks) as her man at the expense of his current lady love, Flo (Katrina Bowden).  And in key scenes on today’s B&B, Wyatt tells Sally it’s best for to stay away from him and Flo and to, perhaps, leave town.

Courtney took to her Instagram account to share her thoughts on the news of her exit, saying: “An abrupt ending to a monumental journey. The last three years have been amazing, and though I do not know what the future holds this chapter of Sally has sadly come to an end.  I love my @boldandbeautifulcbs cast and crew and will miss everyone dearly, but await the day we may all play again. Some things are out of our control, and I thank the fans for your support through it all!  Until then, I revel in new beginnings and everything the future has in store. 🙌🏼✨Love you all,  Sally spectra out 👩🏼‍🦰 ✌🏽”

So, what have you thought of Courtney’s recent performances?  Do you think B&B wrote the character into a corner they could not get out of? Would you like to see her return again one day? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.   But first, watch Wyatt say goodbye to Sally.

Dominic Zamprogna On His Return To General Hospital: “So Great To Be back With My Family!!”

The big surprise on Monday’s General Hospital in its first episode back amid the coronavirus pandemic, featured in it none other than Dominic Zamprogna and his return to the show as Dante Falconeri.

In it, viewers see Dante still struggling from his PTSD while at a WSB facility in Geneva, Switzerland at the top of the episode.

We later see Dante writing a letter to his mother, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), that he just saves and tucks at the end of his bed, never meaning he as he says to send it, in order to keep his family and loved ones safe from him.

Zamprogna was last seen on GH back in March of 2019.  Dominic originated the role of Dante back in 2009 and had stayed with the series for 9 years before deciding to previously exit the show.  Over the last several months, Dominic has been public about wanting the opportunity to work with his GH co-stars again and how he missed them,

After today’s episode of GH aired, the series Twitter account, tweeted: “Welcome Home” to which the actor expressed: “Thank you!! So great to be back with my family!!”

This sets the stage for Dante to get well, head back to Port Charles, only to find the love of his life Lulu (Emme Rylan), involved with another man, Dustin (Mark Lawson), or who knows what else may be on the horizon.

So, what do you think will happen next for Dante? Glad Dominic is back on GH? Comment below.
