You bet! I read memoirs by Jeanne Cooper (just loved it and so miss her presence!), Susan Lucci, Kim Zimmer, Eric Braeden, and Thaao Penghlis. Great books all. Eager to enjoy Melody Thomas Scott’s too.

I will for sure want to read Melody’s story. I’m always fascinated with the autobios of soap stars. I’ve enjoyed every one that I have read so far.

I will definitely be ordering it. I too loved the memoirs of Jeanne Cooper, Eric Braeden, and Kim Zimmer. I hope Melody has some dish about working on MARNIE with Alfred Hitchcock and that awful PIRANHA flick as well. Of course, the best will be her legendary run as “Miss Nikki Reed”, as Darlene Conley used to hiss at her, and her life as Victor’s “ex pole-strippah” partner. What memories she must have!

So enjoyed these two fantastic actresses and their interaction today, as Nicki offered her support to Sharon in her time of need. I was in the same situation years ago, without anyone to lean on, and only my own worries and what ifs to keep me company. The ending brought tears,seeing the comfort given and accepted. The music was my favorite also, often used in Sharon and Nick scenes over the years. Once Sharon is better, and Iam sure she will be, I hope they can remain friends. It would be such a waste if this doesn’t happen.

The scenes today between her and Case were fantastic they are very good friends off screen and it was a emotional scene today it’s the only reason I am still hanging on to this soap ! MTS congrats I am sure your book will be great !

Melissa Reeves Has NOT Been Fired From Days of our Lives

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 0 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? Are you glad that Melissa Reeves was not fired from Days as this original item indicated? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

‘Empire’ star Bryshere Gray Arrested On Domestic Violence Charges After Allegedly Assaulting Wife

More legal trouble for the Lyon children of Fox’s former show Empire.   Now comes word that Bryshere Gray, who played Hakeem Lyon, was arrested near Phoenix on Monday after his wife told authorities he had assaulted her for hours and preceded to choke her unconscious at their home in Goodyear, Arizona on Sunday night.

Police arrested Gray early Monday outside his home, and related that the actor initially refused to come out of the house, so a SWAT team was employed and crisis negotiations experts were called on to the scene.

Gray was later taken into custody and booked at the infamous Maricopa Country Jail on charges of domestic violence.

As to the events that precipitated Bryshere’s arrest: initially police responded to a 911 call Sunday night, where the caller said that an adult female allegedly told him that she has been assaulted multiple times by her husband inside their home.  She then names herself as Bryshere Gray’s wife and Gray as the suspect.

Later via a press release, police said the woman had flagged down a bystander at a local gas station and told the driver that she had been assaulted for several hours. Police said she clearly was injured and told them her husband had choked her to the point where she lost consciousness. The woman was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a local hospital and later released.

Gray appeared in all six seasons of Empire and landed BET,  NAACP Image and Teen Choice awards during his run.

Check out the mug shot below of Gray’s arrest via a tweet put out by the Goodyear Police Department below.  TMZ first reported the news.

So, what do you think of the domestic violence charges against Gray? Comment below.
