On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, long-running star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) sits down to chat with host Michael Fairman about the shocking return of Jack Deveraux (Matt Ashford) to Salem, and how Jennifer is trying to cope with the believed-to-be-dead love-of-her-life who has come to town with no memory of her … or his past!

Reeves chats on: how she found out Matt Ashford was coming back to DAYS, how important those New Year’s Eve scenes were, her on-screen and off-screen relationship with Salem arch-rival, Kassie DePaiva (Eve), and a look back at Jack and Jenn’s memorable wedding and their vows decades ago.  Missy also talks about the love of her life, Scott Reeves (Ex-Ryan, Y&R, Ex-Steve, GH Ex-Jake, DAYS), and their new coffee business in Nashville. Missy also takes tie to remember the late Frances Reid and MacDonald Carey as her on-screen grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, and the importance of carrying on the tradition of the Horton family to this day on-air.

Later, Paul Telfer (Xander) and Greg Rikaart (Leo) talk with Fairman all about last Friday’s cliffhanger, where Leo jumps on Xander for sex in exchange for providing information to Xander on Sonny and Will, so Xander can become CEO of Titan.  But will Xander go through with it?  The two talk about playing these opportunistic, bad boy characters.

Then, in a fun game, Paul and Greg are presented with some of the hilarious dialog from head writer, Ron Carlivati and his team from recent airshows, where the podcast tests their muscle memory to see ig they recall which was the correct line of dialog said by Leo, Xander, or Victor!

Another great podcast! I really enjoyed your conversation with Melissa Reeves (Jennifer)! She seems to really love to being interviewed by you and she always seem so bright, bubbly and positive which is so refreshing. I loved hearing her talking about Jack and Jennifer in the past and in the present. And I loved what she said about Frances Reid and MacDonald behind the scenes and about feeling their presence on the show. Also funny hearing about Kassie D. (Eve) busting Missy’s lip in rehearsal by accident and having to tape with the busted lip lol.

As The World Turns

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”
