Well I am glad they made it to their 50th. I hope they make it as fun filled and full of history to honor the show as it deserves. My wish for the 50th– someone will finally tell us whether Carrie had a boy or a girl. She left town with Austin pregnant and not a word since. Of course they could SORAS that child and have them show up as the new troubled teen this summer LOL.

What is the estimated shelf-life of a soap such as DAYS of our Lives? Will it be on forever or if ABC’s General Hospital dies, we may see characters such as Shawn and Belle Brady return to Salem. How will a show such as DAYS fit a half-century of history into its upcoming DAY of DAYS event at Universal Studios Citywalk?

I am hoping to hear what plans they might have in store like GH did which was an amazing year long ride. Truthfully I wondered if Days was going to make it more than a few times. I saw a post about Rory’s mom, I missed that episode. I usually don’t miss them. I really liked the wife of the slain officer, can’t recall her name but she has been on other shows. I loved her acting. Hate when I forget stuff like that. Aging really does affect brains, least it is mine. I remember the first time I watched… Read more »

Raven Bowens is the New Chanel on DAYS

There has been a casting switcheroo at Days of our Lives.   Precious Way is out in the role of Chanel Dupree and the part had been recast.

According to Soap Opera Digest, look for Bowens to first air on-screen on the July 6th episode.  Apparently, she has been taping at the DAYS set since April.

Raven has previously appeared on All Rise, Insecure, The New Edition Story and Future Man.

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
