I love Bo and Nora, this is awesome news!!!

Honestly! Who wants a brand new family, when OLTL had a beautiful new family in the making – aka KISHIERRA – but decided to throw her overboard…

I thought 6 weeks after the KISH KILL my anger would have lessened, but not so.

#ABCFail all over again!

YEAH! Bo and Nora are THE BEST of THE BEST!

So OLTL got rid of Kish (and the Kishierra family) for budget reasons (or “because they didn’t resonate with mainstream” reasons, or whatever reason they have this week for axing Kish), but now they all of a sudden have the money to bring on a whole new family, not to mention several newbies that have been added recently after Scott, Brett, SC, Daphne Duplaix, etc. were unceremoneously DUMPED by OLTL! I totally agree …… who in the hell wants another brand new family in Llanview when they had one of the most beautiful families they could have ever wanted with Kish and Sierra, but decided to run them out of town (and lost thousands of viewers in doing so).

I guess they didn’t “fit the mold” to live in bigoted KLANVIEW so they tossed them away like yesterday’s garbage. Too bad too, because Oliver looked 100% better in his police uniform than Brody does, and Kyle looked 100% better in his doctor’s coat than Greg does. AND, nobody on the show even comes close to being as cute as little Sierra Rose. Yes, OLTL tossed away the most beautiful family they could ever hope to have on the show. SOOOOOO MUCH POTENTIAL THERE.

As far as I am concerned, KLANVIEW can have its 2-time rapist, Ford-ho, Langston-ho, shacked-up teens, illegitimate babies, incestuous relationships, 30+ year-old “teenage” wannabe, whiney pathetic Marty, pathetically horrendous Gigi (the bimbo with no talent at all), and her chosen one, WRECKS, the former son of Roxy who is now just a human spud conceived via Emmaculate Conception and has no parents, etc, etc.

What I wonder is, what’s next for Klanview? Will Cris make Layla ride in the back of the LIMO when they go to the prom together? Will Layla have to drink from the water fountain designated for “blacks only” at school. Will Layla even be allowed to participate in the same activities as the white kids at the prom or even be allowed to dance next to the white kids?

How much you wanna bet that new family coming to Klanview will be LILY WHITE and totally HETEROSEXUAL!!

Yes, I am a middle-aged, white, heterosexual married female and I want my gay couple (Kish) back and more ethnic diversity on the show! As far as Gigi goes, she should just go back to McDonald’s and flip hamburgers for a living because she is no actress and is about as interesting as watching paint dry. JMHO

In 1973, Dr Lesley Webber was assigned to her case. Meg became jealous of Lesley and began to think that she was trying to get to have sex with Lee. During an argument with Lee, Meg died of a stroke and soon after Lee adopted Scott.

Ron Carlivati Reveals When Days of our Lives Episodes From His Head Writing Regime Resume Streaming

Days of our Lives viewers have not been watching material from head writer Ron Carlivati and his writing team for many months. Well, things are about to change.

Circle this Friday, May 31st when the first new script from Carlivati and company will stream on the Peacock soap opera. If you recall, Carlivati had to step away from the writing gig at DAYS due to the writer’s strike, but because the soap tapes at least seven months ahead of air, it is only now that fans will see how the stories shift or finish out that were started by Carlivati.

According to Ron’s conversation with TV Insider, when Carlivati and his team resumed writing the show in late October of 2023, the stories were already written well into 2024. Carlivati explained, “For me, as of us talking right now, the (replacement writers’ material) is still airing, so that has been very tough. I’m just very anxious and eager for our stuff to start airing again.”

Ron explained before the writer’s strike, he and his scribes had written up through the 2023 Thanksgiving episodes. Speaking on how the replacement writers tried to handle stepping in for the regular team, Ron expressed, “I think what they tried to do was move things slowly in the hopes that the strike would end and respect where my storylines were so that I could play them off when we came back. Unfortunately, the strike dragged on, so I understand that the show needed to make story decisions.”

The award-winning writer made clear that, “from January to May (2024), those were not my stories. I had nothing to do with those.”

Having lived through a writer’s strike before (when he was at One Life to Live in 2008), Carlivati explained how he dealt with coming back and adjusting the stories including that the plan was to, “blow things up, jettison anything that I did not like, and get back to a show that I understand and can enjoy and tell. ”

Look for a Carlivati-style ‘wink-wink’ on Friday’s episode. As he puts it, “I did want to make it clear that this was the line of demarcation, that the writers were back and there was a change happening. We have a little nod or two to what was going on in the first day and I think it will be very obvious and clear to the savvy viewer. Luckily, story-wise, certain things were coming to a head already.”

Stay tuned for how Ron resolves a Sloan and Nicole showdown, how Eric will find out he is Jude’s true baby daddy, what happens when the new Gabi returns from Salem from out of the slammer, the Maggie/Konstantin wedding, payback time for Theresa and more.

In addition, and as previously reported, when Carlivati returned, he crafted the series 15,000th episode which is set to air in early December, and will also pay tribute to the late Bill Hayes with the passing of his on-screen beloved character, Doug Williams.

So, glad to know Ron and his team’s material will start to reveal itself this Friday and moving forward on DAYS? Comment below.
