Another good one, Michael. What a coupe to get Rick Springfield! He sounds like he is handling his depresion, and should be inspiring to the many others out there who have the same condition. He is still quite a guy. I just bet those cruises are plenty wild….but fun. Carolyn was in rare form, as usual. Also thought that Eric wa a welcome addition to the show. Your topics, especially about bullying and the heartbreaking results of so many young people was good to bring out to your fans. Everyone should be wiser and kinder in all situations in life.… Read more »

I am so amazed at the Rick Springfield conversation. I’m glad he’s on a promotional; tour I loved Dr. Noah But I really think you and he did a great service by talking about his depresssion and suicide attempt. You really helped open the door for people not to be ashamed and people we think have it all also suffer. Kudos to you and especially Rick.
Can’t wait to read his memoirs would love to hear him sing too

Hey, Michael. I forgot to mention in my first comment, that I loved Ktisten Alderson. She is so engaging in your interview. I really hope that she doesn’t end up with James. But, she seemed to indicate something horrible wil be be happening this week. My mind is going crazy thinking of so many things that can go wrong in her rescue. Anyway, she is a very competant actress for such a young age. We’ve all known her a long time. Also , Daniel Goddard’s story seems to be unraveling. I can’t quite figure out what it is exactly. But,… Read more »

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.
