I wish some better and more informative questions were asked in the Nadia interview. I feel like it was really rushed along and too short. I wish Michael Fairman had asked Nadia what it was like working with Jessica Leccia(as actresses)? And asked Nadia how the chemistry and vibe is different between actors when playing a same sex romance. And asked Nadia her opinions on the Ani and Lara romance on Venice? And also should have asked Nadia about her big scenes at the end of this season of Venice while asking what’s in store for Lara in season 3. All of these questions should have been asked or touched upon. It would have made a much more entertaining and informative interview.

Fun Podcast, Michael. It was jam packed with stars and to top it all off, Maurice Bernard. Are you kidding me? Loved it all. Michelle Stafford was a nice surprise. She had lots to talk about. Galen Gering is one of the most hansome men on TV. Carolyn is always fun, and I love her comic remarks.She is great on GH. And, it’s always fun to play the guessing game created byDillon Casey. I try to guess, but while I’m racking my brain for clues, you guys solve it. Also, Joe Lando was nice to hear from and all the projects he is working on. I hope we can se him because he is one handsome actor and I’ll also remember the scene at the window with Jessica Tuck on OLTL, just as you do, Michael. Keep up all the good shows that you do and your interviews, for your fans…

RE: MAURICE BENARD’S INTERVIEW… i felt carolyn hennesy was a bit of a show-off, always coming back to her character and complimenting herself in scenes with maurice, rather than interviewing him on HIS character and what he wanted to say about sonny. also, what right does ms. hennesy have to criticize vanessa (not brenda, vanessa) and call her “angst-ridden” and “able to split into a million pieces”? whatever her thoughts, that’s not cool to say about a co-star who never, ever talks badly about the people she works with. truth is, the best scenes maurice ever had were with vanessa marcil. i agree their chemistry had been off the first few months of her return, but from maurice himself said, that seems to be his fault. he said he tried to downplay his attraction to brenda because he was just with someone else. for vanessa to come in after 13 years of not having romantic scenes with maurice, then have him downplay it, and with co-stars like carolyn criticizing you publicaly — i feel for vanessa! all actors are a bit crazy, and vanessa is no different. maurice is freaking bipolar AND his acting is passionate but not imperfect. he has looked bored out of his mind on GH for years. the first time i’ve seen sonny with some spark back to his acting is now that vanessa is back. both actors should give her a LOT more credit. vanessa is contantly praising maurice and how much she learns from him. but the character of sonny only because popular when he was paired with vanessa’s brenda. maurice in a way owes his career to vanessa. BOTH are great actors who shine around each other. michael, what say you????

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Fights Off His “Killer” Instincts As Rob Scott Wilson Delivers Power Performance Of The Week

In Days of our Lives’ version of Beauty and the Beast, in this case Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is the ‘beauty’ and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) is the ‘beast’ she is to tame, last Thursday and Friday’s episodes illustrated to us where this duo could be heading in the future.

But first things, first.  The situation took a horrifying turn for Ciara, and for Ben, when he runs into the cabin beside himself!  He informs Ciara he went to the pharmacy to get his prescription but the police have swarmed the place.  Getting more and more agitated, Ben tells Ciara, he blames her, and her mother, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) for putting an APB out on him!  Ciara says she didn’t say anything to her mother.   But, Ben is losing his grip on reality fast and he desperately needs his meds.  He’s on edge and begs her not to call Hope, as he can’t go back to the sanitarium.  Ciara tries to calm Ben down and insists that she won’t to that to him, but suddenly, he becomes more unglued and stomps on her cell phone!

Next, Ben is hallucinating thinking he has handcuffed Ciara to the bed – the same thing he did to Abigail!   He sees Ciara in the handcuffs.  Ciara tells him she is not in them and to look at her hands.  All of a sudden, as she tells him she is on his side, and will help him through this, he calls her, “a lying little whore, just like the rest of them.”  Ben thinks she believes he is a ‘killer’ like everyone else, because she has now grabbed a knife to defend herself.

Ben tells Ciara that maybe he hasn’t changed at all, he is a serial killer, and now that he is off his meds he sees things very clearly. Ciara tries to calm him down and assure him everything will be OK.  When he closes his eyes and then opens them, he still sees that Ciara is handcuffed to the bed.  Crawling more and more out of his skin, Ben begins to hear his father, Clyde saying, “She’s lying to you, boy …trying to fool you … the same as that slut Abigail.”

Now, Ben hallucinates that Clyde (James Read) is in the cabin, egging him on to strangle Ciara, red necktie and all!  As Ben fights off his father’s attempts to make him do heinous things to Ciara, (he even hears Clyde telling him to burn down the cabin), yielding a knife Ciara calms Ben down saying Clyde is not really there.  Ben admits he doesn’t know what’s real anymore.  Ciara puts her knife down and offers her hand to hold on to. Ben takes Ciara’s hand and sits down as Clyde’s image fades away.  Ciara begs Ben to run to the pharmacy to get his meds. She promises she will not use her phone.  Ben exits.

However on Cliffhanger Friday, Ciara is engulfed in flames in the cabin, with no Ben to be found, and Rafe (Galen Gering) getting a signal from her cell directing him and Hope on a collision course with Ciara and Ben.

Throughout the two episodes of Ben’s battle with his sanity and how he is haunted by what he has done to others, and vacillating. between reality and delusional, Rob Scott Wilson illustrated once again, that given the material that his performances of Ben are mesmerizing. Wilson’s scenes make you stop whatever you may be doing, and take notice.  That is why Rob is our pick for the “Power Performance of the Week.”

So, what did you think of Rob’s performance?  What did you think of what happened in the cabin between Ben and Ciara? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
