Oh, what a tangled web we weave if your are dealing with a jealousy streak a North American continent wide, and have a penchant for manipulating people to get whatever you want, and whatever man you might want.  That is just what Days of our Lives’ Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) has been doing in recent months and then some.

On an all-new episode of NBC’s bi-monthly series, Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, host Michael Fairman welcomes Olivia Rose Keegan as the featured guest who spills the tea on how she tackles getting the scripts which have Claire doing heinous things to those who are supposedly her friends.  There’s that little ditty of setting fire to the cabin with Ciara (Victoria Konefal) in it, turning illegal immigrant, Haley Chen (Thia Megia) basically over to the Salem PD, when she spills to Eve (Kassie DePaiva) that Haley is at Tripp’s (Lucas Adams), and then there is her wanting to do anything to keep Haley and Tripp from being together, no matter what the cost.  Keegan weighs-in on all of that, offers up some fun behind the scenes anecdotes with her co-stars, and touches on her music career.

Later in the episode, DAYS favorite Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) welcomes her on-screen son. Casey Moss (JJ) to her dressing room for some behind the scenes chatter on how they prepare for their scenes, their relationship as Salem mother and son, and much more.

I never did like Claire. Seems to me like she is fascinated by fire. The actress that plays her certainly does a good job of portraying her though. No offense but she needs to eat even my best friend says the samething. There was Claire picking on Ben and she it seems like she is having a mental illness now. Believe me I know all about mental illness’s .However if she keeps this up she will lose Trip for good She kind of reminds of a young Angelique from Dark Shadow. Just look at her eyes..


Yet another example of Ron C trashing a legacy character in order to push more plot and prop up newbies. Claire and Ciara should have been the next generation Hope and Jenn…not Kate and Vivian!!! Claire being a pyromaniac is completely out of context, out of character, and appears to be a last minute decision.

I cannot wait until Claire is hauled off to jail….. despicable character…
I do not like the theme this storyline is adopting. The writers have eschewed a very sensitive immigration issue and made a dirty, false rag out of it.
The law is being misrepresented. Haley was brought here as a child. She grew up here. Educated here. Works here. Paid taxes here. We are not talking about a criminal or derelict; as we see on a daily basis in real life.
No judge would ever send her back to oblivion….a country as unfamiliar to her as Confucius.
Why are ‘ye gods” following this vein? This falsehood?? For shame. My philosophy has always been that even soapland should follow a semblance of reality—-this reality is fantastical….cross the boundary somewhat, yes—but, keep it within the perimeters of reason.
That’s not how it works. Ridiculous.
Aside: Haley is Melissa’s daughter; and little David is Rafe’s.

I don’t like Claire ready for her to go I don’t know if they tried to turn her into Sami Brady but there’s only one love Sami


Oops—- Melinda? Not Melissa. I can’t keep Haley’ “sister'” name straight….I mean, Haley’s mother.
Also, I am a bit confused about Jordan? Have the doctors realized that she has had ( still has) some trauma to her brain, due to a car accident? The fact that she is so secretive ( that Rafe is her baby’s father) about personal issues, proves that her sanity is not completely “off duty”…. I only want this story to move along…..for Jordan to get her health and life back with Rafe and their son ( Well, I want it this way. LOL)—- and for Hope to move on with the sotto voce mumbler ( Ted)….yuck!!!!!!

Hey Celia
Here it us July and I am just reading your comments. Are you sure you didn’t steal them from me, ha, ha. I hated Claire, so that’s why I don’t usually read anything that had to do with her. They sure utilized her character, before they nailed her down as having a mental problem, instead of just a general wackiness.
About Jordan. It seems to me that she had left town too long ago, for that baby to be Rafe’s, at the age he was when he brought him back. I’d say she left Salem closer to two years, but this baby would mean, she’d been gone only about 15 months. Right now it’s looking like Rafe and Carrie might get together, again.Looks like Hope will be saving that”mumbler” . I am not a big fan of Hope’s , but she’s got to find someone better than Pepe LePew.


Hey, Violet,
Good riddance, Claire—now let’s have Eve step down ( love Kassie–do not want tho lose her)…. not that I like Hope, but we cannot have a crooked commish.
Ted needs to go—-Jack needs to snap out of his ridiculous fake world or go away–Zander needs to be redeemed—and, will-the-real-Nicole please stand up?? Is she alive?
Now, Jordan….Perhaps when she left she had no idea she was pregnant—that accounts for the nine-month-discrepancy…..
besides, my friend, it’s a soap…..age and years make no difference when it suits the PTB’s purpose. LOL.
As I said, I like it to turn out this way. Love Jordan—can’t stand Carrie– I am a visual person—I know, I know; I’m soooo shallow—but, it’s something about her mouth and chin–or lack thereof. I’m a bad girl????!!!!–go figure!! I know she everyone’s favorite, but….what can I say?!
Yeah, Pepe is just too much–he and Kate seem to have a very comfortable ease about their interaction—chemistry, albeit his bell-pepper-like nose gets in my line of vision.
Hope is simply too good to be true and we know otherwise—her past isn’t that pristine—then, there is that matter about her eyebrow–annoy-a-rama galore.

Hi Celia
I was lucky to find your comment here. As I’ve said, Michael does not send me notifications anymore of any replies to me, or when my comment has been posted.
Anyway, as usual I agree with all your comments, especially about Claire. With me it was the eyes, which I’m sure she used to her advantage. I get what you said about Jordan. I just have to get over this thing I have about real time and reel time, it makes me crazy.
Today, Fii. show was pretty good, but it was hard for me to concentrate on the Kate and Ted scenes, because I was checking out his bell pepper nose.
The end was shocking huh, when they revealed to Hope which DiMeara locked them up. Hope was a little too relieved when she saw Ted. Kate wasn’t happy, I think she thought she and Ted would get another chance. Hope to talk to you soon, maybe in Port Charles or Genoa City. Have a wonderful week-end.


Hi, Vi,…LOL
Ok, let me put my serious face on—-As I’ve alread said to you, I went through the same thing. It’s not Mr Fairman’s or his staff’s fault—
With me, it was something stupid I had done without realizing it—-if you notice, right below the ‘reply’ space, our name appears ( eg. Celia), and below that, our email address.
I realized that I had somehow added an extra letter to ‘Celia’ , preventing me from receiving any mail. I suppose I must have gone back and forth correcting my typos and inadvertently scrolled down to my name. It took me a while seeing what I had done.
So, at the risk of sounding idiotic ( not you, MOI, LOL) I hope I am making sense??
I am getting somewhat antsy with the fake Nicole storyline—-while changing Nicole’s face to Kristin’s is a sort of a fait-accompli serves the plot’s purpose; the physical body does not. Ari has a curvy, womanly body ( as a female of the species should), but Stacy is not only shorter in stature—-she also has a boyish figure—no hips and other “paraphernalia”–
Miss Violet, when I see one faux pas after another, my interest dissipates. As I said, I am very visual and what may be minute details to others, they, nonetheless, become augmented for me and they stick out like a sore thumb.
What’s making it worse is Hope looking at Peperone ( or pepe which translate to pepper in Italian). So, when you called Ted “Pepe Le Pew”, you weren’t far off. HaHa.
In other ‘news’, I hope Celeste’s story does not become another battered wife syndrome without exploiting its origins and solutions in depth. We see these plots appear but never the mental disease displayed by the perpetrator are truly ever discussed….and most importantly, the residual trauma afflicting the children. Celeste seems to fit the pattern of forgiving someone who should not be forgiven; acceting him back into the “fold”. “Battered” does not only imply physical abuse—emotional abuse sometimes scars somone more indelibly than hitting. I have yet to see a soap storyline delve into this.
Oh, yeah; Claire’s eyes are scary big!! I wish her well—the actress can act. She’s excellent.
Soon, my friend.

Hi Celia
Thanks for your ideas about my predicament.I’ve done everything I can think of, including writing a note to M.F with no response. This particular thread, if that’s even the right term, Olivia Rose Keegan Dishes, etc. is very hard to find, so it takes me days to reply to you. I have to say I too notice things that bug the heck out of me, and I keep forgetting to mention this particular one. Unless this is something everyone knew but me, than I apologise. A few weeks ago they showed Nicole exiting the Salem Inn, which went right out into the Square, next to the restaurant where Tripp works. I was like what the ?? I knew it was in town somewhere, and always pictured this big beautiful hotel, not this rinky-dink place, looking more like it should have had a rail or whatever, with horses tied up to it. Am I crazy, or what?
This mama Celeste SL should be interesting, especially when papa hits GC. A.Martinez comes to mind right away, si?
Celia, if I can’t find you here, I will most certainly run into you somewhere else,soon I hope. Saw that you went to Fire Island. I’ve never been. Hope it was fun, how old are your kids? That place is probably fun at all ages. I hope to hear about your other vacation coming up. So long, for now.


Hi, Miss Violet,
Sorry to hear you’re still having a hard time finding sites or receiving replies.
It matters not if your response is late, as long as you, somehow, get through.
I wouldn’t stress out too much about the scenery, Violet—-I do double-takes practically on every episode. I’m with you—-the Salem Inn is purported to be this high-class, top, sophistique’ hotel… would not think of it being in thst part of town.
I am not liking this at all. Bringing Susan back has me emotionless. Literally. I love Susan, but Stacy cannot come through for me—-neither as Kristen nor as Susan. Eileen Davidson, as Susan always made my day!! She was perfection. I would break into peels of laughter whenever she made an appearance an er utterings with that voice—-just cracked me up, ” Don’t look now, Elvis….here come them girls–“….”Gotta make my head blank—-get, get, out of there, Stefano”; while she kept pounding her head—–no one else can duplicate that.
It is too difficult for me to digest—-as I said, look at Ari’s body, and how she fills a sleek shift and Stacy doesn’t.
Yes, Martinez would be a perfect mate for Celeste—Plus, he has already played opposite Jordi, on DOOL, as his father.
I have only been to Fire Island once before—-but, my son ( he will be ten in a couple of weeks) and my nephews wanted to go. No cars allowed on the ferry—-it’s not much—overwhelmed with shops!!! I mean, a LOT!! … Supermarket—not one of my favorite places, LOL.
And, oh….my little girl is five.
Thank you for asking…talk soon.❤️

GMA’s Lara Spencer Says, “I Screwed Up” As She Apologizes For Insensitive Prince George Ballet Joke

After a major backlash, Good Morning America‘s Lara Spencer apologized Monday morning on-air during the ABC morning show, over comments she made last week over now six-year-old Prince George taking ballet classes.

In her apology, Spencer told GMA viewers: “I screwed up.  The comment I made about dance was insensitive, it was stupid, and I am deeply sorry.”

Several key figures in the dance community spoke out following her remarks, and Spencer herself also spoke to them over the last few days telling viewers: “I have listened, I have learned about the bravery it takes for a young boy to pursue a career in dance.”

From there, a previously recorded group interview Spencer conducted with three male dancers; Robbie Fairchild (Cats), Travis Wall (So You Think You Can Dance) and Fabrice Calmels (Joffrey Ballet), was shown as each expressed their personal journey and often the humiliation they felt as young boys when they were laughed at and made fun of because of dance.

All of this was kicked off by Spencer making a comment during the Thursday ‘Pop News’ segment on GMA, in which she talked about Prince George’s  “curriculum”.

Lara said in her commentary: “In addition to the usual first- and second-grade things like math, science and history, the future King of England will be putting down the Play-Doh to take on religious studies, computer programming, poetry and ballet, among other things.” She then paused which gave way to chortles in the audience and went on to say: “Prince William says Prince George absolutely loves ballet. I have news for you, Prince William: We’ll see how long that lasts. I mean, he might! He might end up … Between the religious studies and the computer programming, I just want to go back to the Play-Doh!”

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Hope To Steffy, "I'm Taking My Daughter & Don't You Dare Try To Stop Me"

From Debbie Allen, to Rosie O’Donnell, to the wife of the late great dancer Gene Kelly, these women were among those who took swift action commenting on Lara’s remarks and how she mocked ballet.  Outside the GMA studios Monday morning were hundreds of male dancers doing their ballet moves, as well.

So, what do you think of Spencer’s remarks and her apology? Comment below. But first watch the segment and what went down this morning on GMA.
