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.

and, it’s ok to be CONSERVATIVE. WE MATTER, TOO.

Racism has nothing to do with the BLM organization. They are only out to usurp America. If BLM cared about blacks, then they would not destroy black businesses and would be equally concerned about all the black lives wiped out in the cities in America, esp the children.

There is a difference between the BLM Movement (which is mostly peaceful), and the BLM organization, which is organized looters, destroyers, arsonists, etc.

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 !!!! Jennifer and her two kids.. gave their “mother” literally and figuratively LIFE. bearable throw in Chad, Ben, and bringing back Jack… altho Jack it seems spent that whole year ???? coma’d with?

It’s disgusting that Americans cannot have different opinions… that do not agree with Liberal narratives. Read the Constitution on Freedom of Speech, Libs. Not all of us agree with you, however, we agree that you have a right to express yourselves, AND, SO DO WE.

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.

Check out the full winners circle list from last night’s 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.

Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers Exit Days of our Lives

Coming up on Days of our Lives, both Lani and Eli Grant will be written off the canvas to facilitate the departures of Lamon Archey (Eli) and Sal Stowers (Lani).

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Archey who stepped into the role in 2017, has made the decision to leave the long-running NBC soap opera, and will last air the week of July 4.

As for Stowers, she will last air on Friday, July 1st, and given her current storyline, it looks like Lani, who has confessed to murdering TJ (William Christian), will either be sent to prison, or will exit Salem with Eli.

This would not be the first-time that Stowers has departed DAYS.  After her debut in 2015, she was off the Salem canvas for a six-month break in 2016, before returning to the show through 2022.

We will share more information on Lamon and Sal’s exits as it comes to light.
