The wait is over … can you believe it? This Thursday, Chrishell Stause finally makes her first on-screen appearance in her new soap home on Days of our Lives as physical therapist Jordan Ridgeway! Yes, she has a last name too!

The sexy star chatted it up with Matt Mitovich at TV Line.com where she offered plenty of insight and teased her story which kicks-off with Kate (Lauren Koslow) bringing in a therapist to help Rafe (Galen Gering) with his recovery!

Now the kicker is, Stause is going to be dressed down for the role, no bombshell gowns, or glamor for now!  She is an all business therapist.  For some clues as to what to expect, here are a few excerpt from the interview below!

Chrishell on her looks in Salem as Jordan: “You have to check your vanity at the door — and your eyeliner. They frisk you and make sure you’re not hiding any mascara. My character wears literally almost no makeup. But she takes her job very seriously, she’s very no-nonsense. She’s not there to humor anyone. In fact, she comes across robotic at first.”

Chrishell on how Jordan gets introduced on to the canvas:  “Kate brings in a physical therapist for Rafe.  Now, the funny thing is that Kate and Rafe have had this kind of “friends with benefits” thing going on, and she thinks she’s bringing in a guy — because “Jordan Ridgeway” sounds masculine. I don’t think she would’ve knowingly brought on a woman. So when I show up, she gets a little snippy.”

So, do you think Jordan is  being brought in as the new woman for Rafe?  What do you think of having Jordan sans little to no makeup, hair pulled back with glasses? Is it reminiscent of GH’s Sabrina?  Or, will it be a much different spin?  Share your thoughts below!

I just wish… lucas went gun ho for Jordan….. and he battled with Rafe over her.

Lucas is in dire need…. this ‘autumn” from wherever… is?

Ej and Sami do very much for me and MANY many many other viewers, the Ej hookup with everybody in order to keep him and Sami apart mantra is getting old..move on, This is a new story for Rafe and Kate and a new romance for Rafe. End of story.

I was anti-EJ and Sami before but they have won me over! I like Kate with Rafe too, but am interested in seeing how Jordan fits in! I wish she were a Brady or a Horton but oh well….now if Days could dish out more money and recast Chad instead of killing him I would be thrilled! Paging Tom Pelphrey!

Sorry Michael but GH Sabrina was forced and propped using Robin, a legacy character, her family and friends. It was so over the top with slanted heavy handed writing. Whereas DOOL writers know how to introduce a character. I can’t wait for Jordan to show up.

Wasn’t Anna Dimera introduced as an “ugly ducking” when she came on the show? I still remember when she had a big reveal to Tony.

It would be nice to have a new family in Salem besides everyone being a Horton, Brady or Kiriaskis (sp?).

Nope, she was introduced as sexy, money addict, kind of shallow Roman Brady’s ex and mother of his child Carrie !

Couldn’t be more thrilled about Chrishell joining Days and this cool storyline for her! Her pairing with Galen sounds HOT! I saw a picture of the two of them together at the Emmys and they look smokin. Good choice for the show! The character Rafe has been floating so pulling him back into a romance will be fun to watch. Kate has been coming off more and more like an overbearing mom and that whole ‘friends with benefits’ thing pretty paper thin, so I think viewers will go for a substantial relationship. The show is smart to go with something slow building with much needed depth. It’s more fun and who isn’t a sucker for the big Ta Da glamorous reveal?
I know GH did the Sabrina thing recently, but I’m sure this will have a different feel to it and Jordan is said to have some secrets to her past that will make this story richer. I’m excited Days is going for it and I look forward to watching!

yep new triangle we will see : Kate/Rafe/Jordan

WHY would this show hire an actress of her caliber, make her a nobody, and stick her with Rafe??? There are so many core characters not on the canvas…Horton‘s, and Brady‘s. SIGH. They just never learn.

Sandy

Can’t wait for Chrishell to make her Days debut! She is a gorgeous woman and she and Rafe will make a stunning couple. Rafe is in real need of a new love interest and Chrishell/Jordan will fit the bill quite well!

Jordan sounds to me like an interesting character, I am looking forward to seeing what Chrishell will do with the role, I have been excited since I heard she was coming to days, even though I have never seen her on anything before. I am way more excited to watch her first appearance than Jen Lilley who I have yet to tune in to see. Jordan sounds a lbit to me like another doctor who first appeared on Days in 1976 aka Marlena Evan, not the same kind of a professional but someone who will be great at taking care of her patients. I wish Chrishell as much success as Deidre Hall has experienced in this new role no matter who he is paired with. Chemistry sometimes has a way of settling that issue on it’s own.

Lisa

Here’s a thought, how about just hiring someone who is average looking instead of implying a woman isn’t sexy unless she’s caked on the make-up?

It was rather insulting when TPTB wanted us to believe Nadia B was an ugly duckling .

Welcome to Salem – Chrishell.

I Love You.

“Kate N’ Rafe’alicious”

Friends w/Benefits. “who doesn’t want this” ? ! ? ! Love this.

it’s a contrast in dynamics. combustible – inviting – envy –

it’s their show.

Kate – she’s showing so much tenderness that it’s intriguing to watch.

Rafe – is he going to more than friends with benefits with Kate.

I think they should.

Jordan is going to cause fires… ruffle her estrogen… fan the flames in Salem.

Can’t wait to see Chrishell, good luck and,. if everyone remembers when Lucy Coe appeared how she looked and look at her now.

This sounds fun and she turns into beautiful swan for Rafe! Eating Kate insides…sounds fun!

I think someone a little more down to earth, like Rafe is, will be good for him.

I don’t watch GH so I don’t care if it is similar, but it’s not like it’s an original idea. I mean, Days did this before with Chloe. I’m looking forward to seeing where the story goes.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

What will Xander (Paul Telfer) and Victor (John Aniston) to next and all of their plans seem to be unraveling? Comment below.  But first check out the scene from Friday between Camila and Freddie, and this week’s promo for DAYS>

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.
